Abby has her pride; she has to know.

An established relationship story.

Written: January 2008. Word count: 200.



When Tim asked Abby to marry him, her first thought was: What'll Gibbs say?


Her second thought was: Is he only asking because of the baby?


Her third thought was: Ducky's not too old to be a godfather.


Her fourth thought was: Does he love me?


Her fifth thought was: DiNozzo'lll tease Tim relentlessly.


Her sixth thought was: Does he really want to marry me?


Her seventh thought was: I'll stop thinking about what the team might think, do, say, believe, suggest, and instead concentrate on what matters: Tim.


Her eighth thought was: I love him so much. How can I tell him? Will my pride let me ask?


She looked at him sitting opposite him, perched on the edge of the chair, not moving, just waiting.


She looked at him, she really looked at him, and she saw beneath the Timothy McGee he presented to the world, even to Gibbs.


She looked at him and she saw the man she loved, the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with.


She looked at him and she knew she had to ask.


"Tim," she said softly, reaching for his hand. "Is it just because of the baby?"



Everything Will Be All Right is the sequel to this story.
