1991

"They're dead."

"Yes, I know, Jethro."

"They're dead."

"Yes."

"They're dead and you're alive. Why couldn't it have been - Oh, my God, Ducky, I'm -"

"It doesn't matter, Jethro. Sleep now. You'll feel better in the morning."

Jethro felt the prick of a needle in his arm. And then . . . Nothing.

The next morning when he awoke and went downstairs things weren't better.

They were worse.

Much, much worse.

There it stood cold, stark, simple, devastating.

A few lines in Ducky's handwriting.

It ended:

I will always love you.

Ducky


No, things weren't better.

Things didn't begin to get remotely better until 1996.
