jelena says: This was posted a while back on FF. Part 2 is finally finished, so I wanted to post them together. This is very M rated for language and smut, so anyone who’s not an adult should give it a miss. Part 1 is Ziva’s POV.
Fifteen hours into her working day, Ziva could no longer feign interest in the task at hand. She had been running searches on the known aliases of a cold case suspect for two hours now, but she could not find anything of use. No wonder it was a cold case. The man—and all his known aliases—apparently ceased to exist five years ago, but she didn’t know what else she could be doing to find him. McGee had headed down to the lab an hour ago to help Abby with some computer forensics thing that had gone over Ziva’s head, and Gibbs had left shortly after McGee without a word on where he was going or when he’d be back. She’d been left with Tony in the bullpen, but he had given up calling around the suspect’s old acquaintances a half hour ago when the clock hit 2200. People could be particularly uncooperative at this time of night.
