Secrets Have Consequences NCIS Story
Summary: Someone from Tony's past returns, but someone who has been dead for 38 years. Who is it, what will happen when he finds out and what are the consequences of knowing the truth?
A/N: This story is set in season 12, but Ziva went back to DC with Tony. I still have Bishop because I wanted to add her into it. Tony and Ziva are together and Gibbs is ok with, as long as they keep it out of the office. TIVA but not great, since I am only 14 years old. Hope you enjoy Thanks!
"Maybe he is hiding somewhere, protecting someone. Hiding them even" McGee suggested as the team walked into the Bullpen.
"The question is why is he protecting then?" Bishop said.
"And who is he protecting?"
"A woman" Tony said absent mildly.
Ziva and Bishop both looked at him with raised eye browns.
"What makes you say that?" Ziva and Bishop said at the same time. Tony looked up from his computer "Why else would a guy go through so much trouble to protect or hide someone?".
"He has a point" McGee said in agreement.
"Thank you Probie".
Ziva turned to McGee "He could have a friend, who is male"
"And he owes him something" Bishop added.
"So who is our guy?" Tong asked.
At that moment the elevator opened and someone in a grey suit stepped out and walked over the Bullpen area. Gibbs looked up when he heard the elevator 'ping', and was shocked to see CIA Special Agent Trent Kort, standing in front of the team.
"What do you want?" Gibbs demanded.
The team looked over from the plasma and turned to see Kort. Kort looked over the team and back to Gibbs.
"I'm here to talk to DiNozzo" Kort answered.
"What did you do now Tony?" McGee said.
Tony stood up, keeping his eyes on Kort "I didn't do anything. I think". Bishop and Ziva rolled their eyes.
"Why do you want to talk to DiNozzo?" Gibbs said, ignoring Tony.
"That is between me and him. So I would like to talk to him. In privet" Kort replied.
Before Gibbs could respond, Tony got there first "I don't keep secrets from my team, so either you tell me right here right now, or you can leave altogether"
Kort gave Tony an irritated look and Tony just smiled in return.
"Fine. But I am going to tell you its not going to be easy to accept and its on you that they found out DiNozzo"
Tony thought for a second and nodded. Gibbs suggested they go in the conference room for more privacy.

McGee and Bishop sat next to each other and opposite were Tony and Ziva. Gibbs was standing by the window, leaning against the draws, and finally Kort was standing at the end of the table.
"DiNozzo, when you were 7 years old your mother was diagnosed with Cancer, correct?" Kort began.
Tony nodded, so he continued "At the age of 8 she died and you were left with your father, Anthony DiNozzo Sr, correct?"
"Yeah so..." Tony asked.
Kort sighed and said "Do you know what your mother's job was before she died?"
Tony thought for a second then said "She was a waitress at a restaurant. Look can I just ask you something, why all the questions about my mother?"
Kort sighed "Because this is to do with your mother"
McGee, Bishop, Ziva and Tony all had confused looks on their faces, and Gibbs had the usual unreadable look on his face.
Kort seeing their faces said "The case you are currently working on, is to do with your mother"
"Wait so you're saying that Tony's mother is connected to a case that happened 30 odd years ago?" Ziva spoke up.
"38" Tony corrected her and Ziva have him a small, but sad smile.
"In a way, yes"
Gibbs pushed himself off the draws and slowly walked towards Kort "What do you mean, sort of?"
Kort sighed again "Yes, DiNozzo's mother is conceded to a case that happened 38 years ago. But what I'm saying, is that his mother was working on that case"
Tony stood up "What do you mean, working on that case. My mother was a waitress, not a cop or anything else for that matter"
"Your mother has been keeping a lot of secrets from you when you were a kid, and she still is now" Kort answered.
"How can she still be keeping secrets from him now?" Bishop asked, now confused.
Kort didn't say anything for a minute, then finally said something. "Your mother didn't die 38 years ago DiNozzo. She was working for the CIA"
"Now why should I believe anything you are saying right now? Give me one really good reason I should believe every work your saying?" Tony asked.
Kort thought for a second, but didn't say anything.
"Thought so" Tony said then started to walk towards the door.
"Anton Dominic" Kort said and Tony stopped in his tracks.
The team looked at each other, wondering what that meant, and Gibb's just watched Tony's reaction.
