Never Would Have KNown

Back in NCISIt has almost been one month since the love of my life, Edward, had left me in the forest, telling me he didn't love me. I couldn't tell whether he was lying or not, even with all my training. Although the Cullen's may have thought that I was a weak human, I wasn't. While I still may be human I wasn't exactly weak.
Ever since I was thirteen years old I had worked for NCIS. Gibbs had been at a shooting rang in Seattle, the same day my Dad, Charlie, decided to teach me how to shoot. I had perfect aim, hitting the target every time. Gibbs was very impressed, and came to ask me how much practice I had. When I told him this was my first time to hold a gun, let alone shoot one, he offered me a job because they needed someone younger for when a younger person was required and then everything else in-between. I took it without a second thought.
I instantly clicked with the team. Gibbs was like a father to me, keeping everyone in line, telling us what to do, and making sure we were safe. Kate, who was killed last year, was like an older sister to me. She would do anything to protect the people she loves. When she died the whole agency was shaken had depressed. We missed her to much for words. Abby was a mix between my best friend and a sister. She was one of the most awesome people you'll ever meet. Tony was an older brother. He was just like Emm-, no I will not think his name. McGee, or Timmy as I liked to call him, was like Tony, just not as outgoing and a little geekier. Not that I minded, I loved him all the same. Ziva was also like an older sis, the fighting, strong girl that won't let anything happen to anyone. Ducky was basically a Grandfather to me, with all his stories and Palmer was like an awkward cousin that you still love even if they are a little different.
Today was a Monday, and I was trying to force my booty out of bed for work. I had gone back to NCIS a week after they had left. I need something to keep my mind off my broken heart and work has always been able to do that. It had worked pretty well, until we had come to a standstill with cases and paper work didn't have the same magic as an actual case. As I was about to finally get out of bed my phone rang, and I recognized Gibbs' ring tone. I ran to go and find my phone, praying for a case.
"Swan" I answered the phone.
"Bella, get to headquarters. We found a body this morning. We let you sleep in, you really needed it so don't yell at us. We have some people coming in to help with this case and they'll be here at noon, so hurry up." Gibbs responded.
"I'll be there in 10." I said as I hung up.
Quickly getting ready I rushed out the door eager to find out about the new case.
As soon as I entered the bullpen, all I could register was chaos. Tony was annoying Timmy, trying to get him to do something, Ziva was threatening Tony, and Gibbs was smirking while sipping coffee. I just smiled and shook my head as I made my way to my desk, coffee in hand. Just another day at NCIS.
Before anyone knew it, it was noon and Jenny came down to tell use our helpers were on their way up. At the same time she said this, the elevator dinged and seven people I thought I would never see again walked through the door. The last thing I noticed before everything went black was the shocked faces of the Cullen's.
