A little bit of a NCIS/Numb3rs crossover. But Mostly NCIS
This is a companion tale to the story Downsized I posted to the Numb3rs Fan Fic site. So If
you're curious You can mosey across for a read.
New Life introduces a few characters of my own devising as well as the more familiar faces
Often seen around NCIS and the Navy Yard.
The tale is severely Alternate Universe So please. Keep all Flame Throwers on their lowest settings. I apologise for my Terrible spelling, grammar and the whole smaltzy suckiness in general.
Beware maybe C/P of a minor in later chapters
I do not own NCIS. I do Not own Numb3rs. I wish I owned them both Alas not to be
No small stuffed toys were harmed in the writing of this fic.
Leroy Jethro Gibbs looked up as a shadow fell across him. Director Vance laid a slim file on
the desk in front of him.
"I need you to thoroughly acquaint yourself with the facts in this. Then report to my office at
09:00 hours tomorrow morning." That was all he said. Jethro stared slightly astonished as
the Director. Strode back up the stairs to the Messanine deck and disappeared into his office.
Gibbs sat down that evening to peruse the file. Inwardly he cursing the time wasted. Time he could have
spent working on his boat. He poured himself a tumbler full of bourbon. Again scowling.
If he'd down in his basement? He wouldn't have bothered with a glass. Down
there he had a glass jar That served the same purpose just as adequately. Jethro sighed, called
down a curse on Leon Vance For once again encroaching into his precious free time. Then
opened the file. The file was labelled classified and Gibbs soon realised why. It was pretty
much the personnel record of an FBI agent. But not just any agent. No this one was without
doubt something very special. The agent in question was one Colby Jefferson Granger.
Gibbs read the man's glowing list of award and medals. Two Silver Stars and Purple heart
Earned for courage under fire While serving in the army. Gibbs noted he hadn't been a marine
Granger was Special Forces. The next listed award was a congressional medal of honor
For saving the life of a General. While fighting in Afghanistan. He'd been given a distinguished
mention in dispatches and discharged with honour. After his third tour. Gibbs turned the page
He raised an eyebrow noting the man had graduated Top of his class from FLETC. Then
Jethro started to frown as he read of the Agent's subsequent under cover work. Trying to flush
out a mole in the DOJ Granger had nearly got himself killed that time. Another medal
But Gibbs had to wonder. Just what he'd endured in prison Before the chinese got at him.
If he'd been oficially labelled a traitor. Even for a short time. Chances are, he would have been
abused by his guards. The file stated that Granger had been exonerated and given
the FBI medal for meritourious conduct. But then it ended. There was nothing more.
Other than an addendum Stating that the Agent was having some difficulty fitting back into
his unit. As his long term partner, in fact the whole team. Now eyed him with mistrust.
Gibbs closed the folder and sipped his liquor.
