Attempting to Sway - The First Evil/Jethro Gibbs
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the characters used.
Author: I thought that the scenes in Kill Ari ( 1 & 2) where Gibbs is envisioning Kate were a little out of character for Kate, and that's where I got the idea for this. The FFA pairing was a bonus.
“It’s happening again, isn’t. Ducky’s going to take a bullet for you,” The First said in the form of Caitlin Todd. He hated this man, this Jethro Gibbs. Put so many dedicated to his cause either in the ground or behind bars. Now he could strike back at him.
“He won’t kill Ducky,” Gibbs said.
“Why not?” The First snapped. “Because you couldn’t live with the guilt.” He’d tried earlier that day, to get Gibbs to give up after Caitlin had died, but Ari’s attempt on the life another close to Gibbs had backfired. Now, he was pushing even harder to get Gibbs to give up. “Maybe Ari knows that. Maybe that’s his plan. Maybe the only way to save Ducky, Abby and McGee…is to kill yourself.” Gibbs gasped for air when The First said that. The First let himself fade. Time would tell if he had succeeded. And if he hadn’t…there were other times and places and faces he could use to get Jethro Gibbs to quit.
