AUTHOR: Ashleigh Anpilova
PAIRINGS: Leroy Jethro Gibbs/Tobias C. Fornell. Leroy Jethro Gibbs/Donald 'Ducky' Mallard
WORD COUNT: 2,071
SUMMARY: Jethro gives his second closet friend what he has always wanted. But he had good reason to do so.
WARNINGS: Major character death.
AUTHOR'S NOTES 1: As some of you who know me know, I have always said that if it weren't for Ducky, Gibbs/Fornell would have been my NCIS OTP, and it would have been. Also, those of you who know me well might be more than a tad taken about that I'm actually writing outside of my OTP (I'm an OTP gal in the old fashioned sense of the word). However, I think the story will explain why I was able to do that thing. I suggest that tissues might well be needed when reading this story.
AUTHOR'S NOTES 2: Written for older_not_dead Promptathon 02 for the prompt 'What About Ducky'?
DISCLAIMER: I don't own these characters, nor am I making any money from them. I merely borrow them from time to time.
