A/N: Oh my gosh. Y'all, I am sooo sorry that I left you guys hanging like this. At least it wasn't a major cliffy. But, it's still no excuse. I have a perfectly good reason to be pretty much M.I.A. In June, I had some SERIOUS migraines, I mean like, SERIOUS! I am much better now. I still have a headache but it's better than it was before. On a scale to 1-10 of pain, I was at a 100. I went to the hospital and spent 5 days in the Neuro-Science wing at Children's Hospital, THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH ME! I was upset and frustrated. It was a TIME going on. And then, it's my junior year of high school. And, IT'S KICKING MY BUTT! It's been a heavy homework year because I have heavy homework classes. And I'm taking no types of AP classes. THEY SET ME UP Y'ALL! I am going to be a while coming back to update. I am thinking about ending it now and whenever I do write, it would be like one-shots on our favorite characters. Like, you are calling them and seeing what they are up to. Lol. Alright, I had to tell you guys my excuse why I have been M.I.A. Ok, we are going to the wedding? Hehe, LET'S GO! Oh, I'm going to skip the vows part and stuff

Disclaimer: First, I am sooo sad Cote is GONE. MY WIFE IS GONE! NOOOO! But, off topic, SPINAL TABS HURT SOOO BAD! DON'T EVER GET IT! I had to get one because it was one of my tests to get some liquid out, they missed like twice, and I was shaking like crazy afterwards. Ok. Bye


"Ok, bossy lady." Ziva said playfully rolling her eyes. I scrunched up my face.

"Ewww. You make me sound old when I am definitely just 15. Oh my goodness, I am so young!" I said realizing how young I really am. And everybody started laughing.

"Yes, you are Sam. Now, let's have a movie night!" Abby said clapping her hands excitedly and started to push Ziva back into the dressing room.

"GAAAAA!" Both of the twins yelled. I think they want movie night too.


The big day is finally here. It is Tony and Ziva's wedding day! It is a beautiful day in June on the beach. It is finally summer vacation for me and I can't wait to get it started. Florida is absolutely gorgeous. She decided to go with the color blue for her wedding. Blue is a calming color for a beach wedding so I think that was a good idea.

Ziva is checking at herself in the mirror. She looked amazing. And she looks happy but it looks like she is hiding something. It is just me and her alone in the room. Abby went to go get something and the other bridesmaid who is Ziva's friend Simone went to the restroom. She turned to me and gave me a nervous smile. "Sam, I have to tell you something."

"What's going on Mama?" I asked her as I fixed her necklace. She sighed and looked worried.

"I think I am pregnant. I have been throwing up and not sleeping well. Oh gosh Sam, what if I am? Can we handle it?" She babbled. I gave her a small smile.

"Ziva, sit down." I guided her over to a chair. "Breathe." She took a deep breath. "Tony and you can handle it. If you can handle the twinjas, I am sure you can handle another baby. It will be alright. If anything, I will be there to help. I have no objections to it." I reassured her.

Ziva still looked unsure. "Does Tony know Ziva?" I asked her and she shook her head. "Ziva, he needs to know. How about this, I will buy a pregnancy test and we will see, ok?" I suggested and she nodded her head.

"Ok, thanks Sam." She stood up and gave me a hug. She sighed happily. "I can't believe that I am getting married. I never thought I would see the day."

Ziva has been happy these past few months. But right now, I haven't seen her happier. She looks more carefree and relaxed. Tony has truly helped Ziva bringing down her guard and she is realizing that she can enjoy life more if she lets others in. "I am just glad that you are happy Mama. I don't think I have seen you happier." I said to her and she beamed at me. Before she could say anything else Gibbs came into the room.

"Ziver, you look beautiful." Gibbs smiled as she looked at Ziva. Ziva blushed and thanked him.

"Are you ready Ziva?" asked Abby and Simone walked in behind her. Ziva nodded her head and we all smiled.

"Well you guys, it's SHOW TIME! Let's get this thing started." I exclaimed and rushed out of the room. I heard some chuckling. I am so ready for this wedding.


Wow. I cannot believe I am actually getting married. I am marrying somebody I love, somebody who cares about me, somebody who knows me better than I know myself. We have spent 8 years beating around the bush and we are finally wrapping the knot. Wait, I think I said that wrong. Tying the knot. I smiled to myself. I got that idiom right. I am disappointed my father won't be here but his gift to us was to pick any place for our honeymoon. Fine by me. Simone nudged my shoulder. I have met her in a store years ago and we became best friends ever since. "It's time Ziva. Let's go see your broom."

I smiled at her. "Let us go Simone. Reagan is ready correct?" I asked her. Reagan is her 5 year-old daughter who is the flower girl. Simone nodded her head. Well, Sam is right, it is show time.


"Tony, are you ready to get married?" asked McGee as he entered the room. I didn't answer him and I looked at myself in the mirror one last time. "Tony, I repeat. Are you ready to get married?" McGee asked concern.

I sighed. "I'm just nervous McGoo. What if she backs out?" McGee gave me a headslap and I winced.

"Tony, she isn't going to back out of this one. I can promise you that one." McGee assured me grabbing both of my shoulders. I smiled.

"Thanks Tim." I needed the confidence. "Now, McBestMan, its show time."

When I saw Ziva, she looked breath-taking. She looked radiant. And she will be soon be all mine. She smiled at me and I beamed right back at her. This is going to be amazing.


The wedding was beautiful with the waves crashing onto the shore in the background and the gentle breeze going. I'm so happy that they FINALLY got themselves together and saw that they are soul mates. The wedding reception, this is where all of the fun happens. Singing from Marcus and myself, dancing, dinner, all near the beach. I'm in the bathroom with Ziva as she waits for the results of the pregnancy test I bought.

"Ziva, you would have laughing so hard if you saw the people's facial expressions in that store when I bought this test. By the way, how late are you anyway?" I questioned curiously. Ziva gave me a sheepish smile

"2 months." It's not too bad. I gave her a look.

"Ok, just curious." Finally, the timer went off on my phone. We looked at each other and she finally picked up with her face emotionless. "Well?" I asked impatiently

"Negative." I think I detect some sadness in her voice. I gave her a hug.

"It's ok Ziva. Wait until your honeymoon." I pulled back and winked at her and she laughed.

"I was actually hoping it would be positive. But things will happen when it is supposed to happen, yes?" I nodded my head.

"Everything will fall into place. Now, let's get out here before anybody gets too worried." I told her and I looked at the pregnancy test. "You are going have to throw that away. I'm not throwing away anything you peed on."

She threw her head back laughing as she threw the test in the trash.


"Good evening everybody! Enjoying yourselves?" I asked happily over the microphone. It was a chorus of 'good evenings' and 'yes' from the crowd. "Well, my name is Samantha. Some of you may or may not know how long these lovebirds danced around each other. And I'm so glad that they decided not to be stubborn about this commitment thing anymore."

"THANK GOODNESS!" Abby shouted from the table and the room erupted into laughter with Tony and Ziva blushing.

"Never the less, we have some songs to sing for our newlyweds for their first dance together." I smiled and everybody clapped. Marcus behind me squeezed my hand and took over the mic.

"Good evening everybody. My name is Marcus and this one is definitely for Tony and Ziva. Hope you enjoy the show." He said and smiled at the couple. The smiled and nodded their heads and started to get up. The song started and I actually recognized it. It's from one of Laila's favorite movies Enchanted.

You're in my arms, and all the world is calm.

The music playing on for only two.

So close, together.

And when I'm with you

So close, to feeling alive.

Tony and Ziva make their way to the dance floor and they are smiling at each other.

A life goes by,

Romantic dreams must die.

So I bid my goodbye

And never knew.

So close, was waiting,

Waiting here with you.

And now, forever, I know

All that I wanted

to hold you so close.

I noticed that Tony held Ziva a little tighter and he was whispering in her ear and she laughed.

So close to reaching

That famous happy end.

Almost believing

This one's not pretend.

And now you're beside me,

And look how far we've come.

So far we are. So close...

Tony and Ziva had finally reached that happy ending. They have come such a long way. They finally made it together.

Oh how could I face the faceless days

If I should lose you now?

I can guarantee that Tony is not going to lose Ziva. They love each other too much. They complete each other. They may become close to it, but they are in this for the long run. In and outside of work.

We're so close to reaching

that famous happy end,

And almost believing,

this one's not pretend.

Let's go on dreaming

for we know we are...

so close, so close

and still so far...

Tony and Ziva will be together forever I believe. Ziva never thought that she will even get that happy ending. Now she can FINALLY settle down with somebody she loves, her soul mate. As the song ended, they kissed passionately and everybody roared with applause.

I went up to Marcus and gave him a hug and he kissed my forehead. "Good job Marcus. That was amazing." I whispered to him and he grinned and thanked me. "Alright I have to take the mic now. It's my turn now, love."

Ziva insisted she sing 'Dreaming' by Beyonce again. I wondered why and it finally clicked in my head. That was the song she sung before Tony and her first kissed. I tried to argue with her because she should be dancing with Tony and she should let me sing and she finally gave in. "Wasn't that beautiful? Give it up for Marcus one more time!" I exclaimed and clapped my hands and everybody joined me.

"Alright, as a special request of the bride, I will sing to you a song that's so dear to our adorable couple." I said and everybody clapped once more and Camilla came up to the stage as my backup vocalist. Perfect. Once the clapping died down, Marcus turned on the song.

When I'm here in your arms I feel love in my heart, I can breathe

Not even pinching myself

I don't care I'm with you, you're with me

I never wished on the star when the star ain't got nothing on me

'Cause I can wish you in the dreams.

According to Tony's facial expression, he didn't know I was going to sing this song and he smiled at Ziva. He clearly remembers that song.

When I close my eyes I feel like I'm alive

'Cause I can fall asleep knowing that tonight you will be here with me,


Let me know, if this is a dream,

Then I don't wanna know, (I don't wanna know)

'Cause I ain't 'bout to be without you babe, (without you babe) ohh.

Let me know, if this is a dream,

Then I ain't letting go, (I ain't letting go)

'Cause everything I love is about you babe, about you babe

So I rather be here dreaming than waking up with nobody home

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh,

If it's the only way to be with you then dreaming you is where I belong

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh.

Ziva realizes that whether she likes it or not, Tony will be with her for life. She is happier while he is in her presence. He brings out the best in her.

I think the luckiest girl in the whole wide world could be me

I get to be with the one that I love anytime I please

I feel like I can stay forever beyond eternity

Is like I'm where I supposed to be.

She literally spends 24/7 with Tony. It may be annoying at times, but she hasn't complained about it yet. I think that is the best kind of love. Can't get enough of seeing each other.

When I close my eyes I feel like I'm alive

'Cause I can't fall asleep knowing that tonight you will be here with me,


Let me know, if this is a dream,

Then I don't wanna know, (I don't wanna know)

'Cause I ain't 'bout to be without you babe, (without you babe) ohh.

Let me know, if this is my dream,

Then I ain't letting go, (I ain't letting go)

'Cause everything I love is about you babe, about you babe

So I rather be here dreaming than waking up with nobody home

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh,

If that's the only way to be with you then dreaming you is where I belong

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh.

They are still dancing together perfectly happy in each other's arms. They both have smiles on their faces with their eyes closed. I hope Abby is getting pictures of this.

It took a lifetime just to get with you, to be with you baby

And now that I'm here with you I'm gonna take it in breathe you in

And if I am dreaming let the dream be that I'm awake

'Cause I rather dream about you than be living life without me and you

It took them 8 LONG years to finally realize that they are perfect for each other. They make each other whole. Ziva told me that she sometimes thinks that she is dreaming and that none of this is real. And when she wakes up next to Tony, reality set in for her that this is really happening.

Let me know, if this is a dream,

Then I don't wanna know, (I don't wanna know)

'Cause I ain't 'bout to be without you babe, (without you babe) ohh.

Let me know, if this is my dream,

Then I ain't letting go, (I ain't letting go)

'Cause everything I love is about you babe, about you babe

So I rather be here dreaming than waking up with nobody home

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh,

If that's the only way to be with you then dreaming you is where I belong

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh

Camilla and I finished and we took a bow. Everybody clapped and grinned and I looked at Tony and Ziva who were smiling. Ziva nodded her head as a thank you and I nodded my head to acknowledge it.


"Ok girls, time to catch a bouquet!" Ziva exclaimed. It was actually a lot of girls here. And Tony said Ziva didn't have friends. Maybe not close friends like Simone.

"WE'RE READY!" Yelled most of the girls and "THROW THE FREAKING FLOWERS ALREADY!" From Simone and Abby. I can see why they are friends. I didn't really care about catching it. I decided to stay back in the back behind Simone and Abby

"ONE. TWO. THREE!" Ziva threw back the flowers and Abby caught it with a smile on her face. "Well Abby, look like you are next!" Ziva teased smiling at the Goth.

"I think you are right Ziva." McGee said from beside me. When did he get there?

"Timmy?" Abby questioned confused. McGee pulled out a ring and got down on one knee.

"OOOOOOOOOOOO!" All of the girls exclaimed together.

"Abigail Sciuto, will you marry me?" McGee asked boldly. I have never seen so confident. Go McGee.

Abby nodded her head with tears running down her face. "YES YES A BILLION TIMES YES!" She yelled hugging him and they kissed. Everybody applauded and I took pictures. I have to give McGee some credit. That ring was gorgeous.

Everybody will need help. After you get help, you heal whether you want to or not. In this healing process, you will see who truly loves you and cares about you and those people will be around for a long time. I'm glad that everybody found somebody (well, almost everybody). Things like this I will carry on with me forever.

A/N: WHEW! I know it's not my best. But I tried. So, this is the end. I'm pretty sure of it. It's been a really fun journey guys. I will probably do one-shots to check up on everybody and stuff. The songs are 'So Close' by Jon Mclaughlin and 'Dreaming' by Beyonce. Keep calm, I don't own any of the songs. I written this really late at night and I guess I do everything better at night. Alright, see you guys soon! :) Happy New Year!

Thanks for reviewing SmellyThePirate, FireToTheRain06, and conservativegirl. I know you guys probably hate me right now for taking so long to upload. I SOWWY!
