“I’m not pressing charges, Gibbs.”  Abby had a bloody lip and would have a dandy defensive bruise on her arm tomorrow morning, but she had certainly prevailed.


Special Agent Jethro Gibbs glared at his forensic scientist and pointed at the defeated geek in cuffs.  “He tried to put a wooden stake through your heart!”


“But he didn’t succeed.  It’s all a big misunderstanding.  Andrew saw my coffin-bed and freaked.  He called me a vampire fledgling; said that real vamps, experienced ones, don’t sleep in coffins.”


Gibbs sighed.  “You played on all his fears, didn’t you?”


Abby brushed her hand against her bleeding lip and then lapped up the red liquid.  “I have no idea what you’re talking about.”


“Tell me that at least you had a better reason than to brag to your friends.”


“It’s a better reason, Gibbs.  Girl scouts honor.”  She even saluted.


Gibbs crossed his arms and waited.


Abby relented after a moment.  “Ziva bet me five-hundred dollars that no one still believed in vampires anymore.”


“Who set up Ziva?  DiNozzo?”




Gibbs resisted the urge to grin.  His two geeks had suckered a Mossad agent.  He could almost feel sorry for Wells, caught in the middle.
