Last chapter :-(((((

I had the best time writing this story, however angry I got when writer's block appeared out of thin air. I'm tempted to do a sequel, but we'll see.

Also, Happy Valentine's Day to you all! I haven't done anything for it, since I'm single, apart from eat cake that my best friend made.

"Morning, sweetheart" Jenny whispered in her sleeping daughter's ear.

Baby Hannah gurgled a little and Megan twisted over to face the wall.

"It seems your sister's being stubborn" Jenny stated to her baby daughter, "shall we try a different method?"

The older redhead placed her youngest child down beside Megan and Hannah snuggled into Megan's chest. Megan unconsciously wrapped her arms around her baby sister. Jenny smiled before she walked out to help her husband with the breakfast. Megan's eyes opened and she saw her baby sister cuddled into her chest. The middle redhead smiled and stroked her little sister's hair.

"Good morning, Hannie. Did Mom put you here?" Megan asked softly.

Hannah looked at her big sister with wide eyes.

"Shall we go downstairs?" Her big sister questioned.

Hannah gave her sister a big gummy smile in response. Megan lifted her sister up and went downstairs to see her parents in the kitchen making chocolate chip pancakes.

"It's not even 1000 and this is already the best birthday ever" Megan said.

Jenny and Gibbs turned around and she grinned. They hugged her tightly together.

"Happy birthday, Meg" they chorused in a whisper.

"Thanks" their older daughter answered before they broke apart.

"Sit, sweetheart" Jenny ordered.

"But I want-" Gibbs cut the middle redhead off.

"You're not helping. It's your birthday" he said.

"At least let me feed Hannah" she pleaded.

Gibbs and Jenny shared glances.

"Fine" her Mom responded, "but I'm going to make the formula."

Megan huffed. Hannah gurgled and her big sister's face melted into a smile.

"Come on, let's go and read a book while we wait for your bottle" the teenager stated.

She took Hannah to the lounge, grabbed one of Hannah's sensory books, sat down and read it. Jenny came through with a bottle a few minutes later.

"Thanks" Megan said as she took the bottle and began to feed her baby sister.

"I don't know what we'd do without you, sweetheart" Jenny told her older daughter.

"I can't imagine what I'd do without you and everyone else" the teenager responded.

Jenny kissed her daughter on the forehead and then went to the kitchen, said something to Gibbs, walked out the door and drove off.

"Where's she going?" Megan asked her Dad as she walked into the kitchen, Hannah on her hip.

"It's a surprise" he told her.

Megan gave him a puzzled look.

"Pass your sister to me" Gibbs requested as he placed a plate with a few pancakes where she was sitting, "and eat."

His daughter reluctantly handed him her sister and began to eat. Her Father got her a drink and she began to get even more confused. She finished her breakfast and went upstairs to get dressed and brush her teeth when the door opened. She padded down the stairs and stopped two up from the bottom when she saw who her Mom was with.

"Mike! Uncle Dwayne! Grandpa!" She cried before she ran to them and hugged them all.

They all wished her a happy birthday and then they all came in. The three men and Megan all sat down on the sofa and talked for a while when Jenny and Gibbs came in.

"We have something we need to do. We'll be back before your party starts" Gibbs said, "and we'll take the baby."

"That's fine" his daughter answered.

Jenny and Gibbs nodded before they left the house.

Three hours later

Megan walked into the hall where her birthday party was.

"Look at this, Hannah" she said to her baby sister, "this is amazing."

"I'm glad you think so" a voice answered from behind her.

Megan turned around and saw her best friends. She ran to them and they had a big group hug.

"Did you guys do this?" The redhead asked.

"We had help" Catalina told her.

"From whom?"

"Your parents, the team, Ducky, Abby, Jimmy..." Gabriela stopped, trying to remember.

"Tom and Harriet" Alexis put in.

"And our parents helped us" Jaimini finished.

"Well it's amazing. I can't thank you enough for doing this" Megan responded.

"Awww, Megs, you're gonna make us blush" Catalina and Gabriela chorused.

The other three all laughed.

"Do you have it?" Alexis asked the redhead.

"Yep, it's all here" Megan told her, pulling a USB stick out of her pocket.

"I brought my laptop, so I'll put it on there" Alexis said.

Megan nodded.

Just then, Jenny, Gibbs, the team, Abby, Jimmy, Ducky, Tom and Harriet all walked in.

"Thank you" Megan told them gratefully, "this is amazing."

"You deserve it" Tony told her.

The redhead smiled before she hugged him.

"You got it?" She whispered.

"Yup" he responded almost silently.

They broke apart and grinned knowingly and then she hugged the others. Soon it was time for the party to start. Everyone there talked as Megan's favourite songs played in the background. Megan and her friends walked to the stage and the redhead paused the music.

"When most people my age turn sixteen, they usually have a Sweet Sixteen party or even a Super Sweet Sixteen party. I don't need one, nor do I want one, because my life is sweeter than all of those parties put together. I have everything I could ever want: shelter, food, fresh water, clothes, a family and friends who love me as much as I love them and an education. I'm really, really lucky and I will never ever take it for granted.

"They say home is where the heart is. I always thought mine was in Edinburgh, but after I moved here I realized this is my home. My heart is and always has been here, I just hadn't realized it yet. I made this video for you all, and I hope you like it"

Megan pressed play, and a guitar began to play and a note came up on the screen.

To my family and friends,

Thank you for making me smile, giving me hugs and comforting me. Most importantly thank you for loving me. I love you all, and I could not have made it this far without you.



The singing began and a photo appeared of Jenny and Ducky with a newborn Megan in a hospital room.

A summer rain is passing over

And it feels like a dream

The photo changed to a photo of Gibbs and Jenny in front of the Eiffel Tower looking into each others' eyes.

I could run and look for shelter

But you hold onto me

It transitioned to a picture of Megan and the team crowded around a table in the break room.

I'm under your skies

I'm caught in your eyes

It changed again to a photo of Megan, Abby and Megan's friends baking cookies.

Don't you know you stop the room

And all that I can see is you

The slide transitioned to a photo of the team, Abby and Jimmy laughing about something at Jenny and Gibbs's wedding.

I'm standing where the lightning strikes

I know this doesn't happen twice

It changed again, this time to a photo of Megan and Gibbs working on the boat.

You must be my once in a lifetime, in a lifetime

You must be my once in a lifetime

The photo transformed into a photo of Megan, Tom and Harriet all sitting at the table in Tom's office grinning at the camera.

So before the storm has passed

I just want to ask

Can we make this moment last?

It changed again, to a photo of Mike, Dwayne and Gibbs all talking over a bottle of beer.

So before the storm is passed

I just want to ask

Can we make this moment last? (moment last?)

Once again, it changed, this time to a photo of Megan and Jackson working on the till in his store.

Don't you know you stop the room

And all that I can see is you

The photo changed to a selfie of Gibbs, Jenny, the team, Abby, Ducky outside of the cinema after watching Star Wars.

I'm standing where the lightning strikes

I know this doesn't happen twice

It changed again, this time to a photo of Megan reading to Hannah.

You must be my once in a lifetime, in a lifetime

You must be my once in a lifetime

The photo changed one final time to a photo of all of Megan's family and friends, taken a couple of weeks after Hannah's birth. They were all in the Gibbs's garden grinning at the camera. It faded to black and the song finished and then there was a huge round of applause.

"I just want to give a special thank you to my best friends for helping me with this. Catalina and Gabriela for looking through photos with me, Jaimini for helping me record the song and Alexis for doing everything technology related. This really wouldn't be possible without them, so girls, merci" Megan said.

She hugged her best friends, and they hugged her back, and then it was time to go back to the party.

"Psssttt, Megs" Catalina hissed.

"What?" Megan asked.

"Love Story's on next" Gabriela told the redhead.

Her eyes widened before she went over to Tony.

"Tony, it's time" she informed him.

The movie buff nodded. Love Story began to play and he asked Ziva to dance with him. Megan sat beside Abby and they squeezed each others' hands. When the key change happened, Tony pulled out and opened a box and got down on one knee. Everyone apart from he, Megan, her friends and Abby all gasped. Alexis paused the music.

"Ziva David, you complete me. You're my best friend. I can't imagine my life without you. You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love... I love... I love you. I never wish to to be parted from you from this day on. Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?" Tony asked.

Ziva looked at Megan who nodded with a smile.

"Yes, a thousand times yes!" The Israeli cried.

Tony placed the ring on her finger and they hugged as everyone else cheered with Megan and Abby high fiving and grinning.

"We did it, Abs" Megan told the goth.

"We sure did, Megs" the forensic scientist answered.


Megan got out of the car, getting her sleeping baby sister's car seat out too. She placed the car seat on the sofa gently but Hannah began to cry. Megan took her sister out of her car seat and walked back and forth, singing Once In A Lifetime softly. Hannah eventually fell asleep and Megan still hummed the song. She looked down at her baby sister and she smiled before she placed her in the crib in the corner of the room and then sat down on the sofa. Jenny and Gibbs had watched from the doorway and they sat down beside their daughter.

"You're our once in a lifetime, Meg" her Mom told her.

"And you two are mine" the middle redhead responded before she hugged them both.

Megan was truly happy: she got her wish and she had her once in a lifetime.

It's over *cries*.
