“Hello, Shada.”

“Hello, Gibbs.”

He knew she’d come, but he can only guess what she’s actually thinking. Her face, framed by the black hijab, gives away nothing.

They stand together silently as she contemplates the grave of a man she had hated virulently, yet perhaps come to respect in those months of forced companionship.

“He was a good man,” she finally allows, breaking the uncomfortable silence.

“The best,” Gibbs agrees, “He died fighting a monster.”

An expression of grief darkens her features.

Gibbs knows better than to offer any physical gesture of comfort.

“Khodaa Beeyaamorzad, Michael Franks,” she mutters.

“Amen.”
