Summary: Mornings with Gibbs.
As long as Gibbs could remember, someone had been there to wake him up.
Dad knocking on his door, yelling “up and at em, Leroy” every morning, even during summer vacation.
The sound of Reveille being blasted over the boot-camp loudspeakers.
Shannon and Kelly, on lazy weekends, bringing laughter and kisses.
Franks, growling “rise and shine, Probie,” on the phone and showing up with a cup of the world’s worst coffee.
Now there was Fornell, whose morning routine began with a kiss followed by a tug at the waistband of Gibbs’ boxer shorts.
That was the best wake-up of all.
