***It was a cold, November day when Gibbs entered the bullpen and shook the snow off his coat before approaching his desk. When he got there, he noticed a small box, wrapped beautifully, with a bow on top, addressed to him.
It wasnít his birthday so it couldnít be that, and it was almost Christmas, but too soon to be exchanging presents so it wasnít there because of that. It seemed that somebody had just decided to give Gibbs a present and he wasnít sure who.
He lifted the package and shook it, holding it against his ear to check for anything Ė like ticking, because knowing his luck it would be a bomb. There was only the sound of rustling so it didnít look like a bomb, it felt too light to be a bomb, so it had to be something else.
He read the label:
Itís cold outside, and although I wish I could warm you other ways, this will have to do to protect your body from the harsh weather,
With love always
That bemused Gibbs, but it seemed harmless enough so he ripped open the wrapping and opened the box. Inside was a beautiful scarf, soft to the touch and hand made to be sure. It looked expensive and when he tried it on for size, he could see how it would keep the cold out, but who had sent it? That would forever remain a mystery.
