It had been a long day and Gibbs just wanted to take a shower and crawl into bed and let his

mind turn to mush. The front porch light was on and the rest of the house was dark.

His wife should be in bed asleep by now.

Gibbs walked up on the porch and opened the front door, there was something wrong inside the

house. Gibbs pulled his weapon and slowly reached into the house to turn on the light for the

front room. The light came on and Gibbs found the room empty except for the old sofa.

Gibbs walked into the room and found a note on the sofa.

"Jethro,

I wish you loved me as much as you love your job. I am sorry, but I can't be second any more."
