"Boss. Metro reports a man answering Ducky's description sitting in the park in Georgetown. Olive and Twenty-ninth."
Gibbs stood up, grabbed his Sig and coat and strode across the squad room.
"Do you want me to - No, of course you don't." DiNozzo quelled under the gaze Gibbs shot him.
Ignoring the elevator, Gibbs took the stairs at a run, threw himself into his sedan and tires squealing pulled away.
It was snowing. Hard. Big white flakes fell like a sheet from the sky, covering the ground and obscuring Gibbs's windshield. He ignored them and just drove.
He reached the street, left his car double-parked, turned his collar up against the snow and jogged to the edge of the park.
There, sitting alone on a bench, partly covered by snow, seemingly unaware of it, or of the looks he was getting from passers-by, was Ducky.
Ducky started and looked up. "Jethro? What are you doing here?"
"Come to take you home."
"Oh, that is kind of you, my dear. I seem to have come out without any money or even my phone or - But how did you find me?"
Gibbs shrugged. "It's what I do, Duck. I find people. Now come on. Let's get you into the car and get you warm. You must be frozen sitting here."
Ducky looked puzzled for a moment. "Oh, yes. I believe I am a little chilled."
"Probably because it's snowing." Gibbs put his hand under Ducky's arm and tugged him to his feet.
"Is it? I hadn't noticed. I - Oh, Jethro. Mother's -" And with that, Ducky broke down.
"I know, Duck. I know." Gibbs pulled him into his arms. There in the middle of the park, in the snow that was getting worse by the moment, he just stood and held Ducky.
