Zodiac

Zodiac

Callen walked in and placed his bag on the ground as Kensi walked around the corner with Deeks.

"So tell me?" she asked pushing him into his chair.

"Fine, I can't see what difference it makes to anything, but I'm a Capricorn and I was born in the year of the Snake," Deeks said.

Callen looked up interested. "You're a what?" He asked confused.

"Capricorn, it's my star sign and I was born in the year of the snake." Deeks explained.

"What's yours?" Sam asked sitting back in his chair and joining in the conversation.

Callen looked at them and shrugged, someone once said I was that horse thing? He reached for a file and hoped that would be the end of it.

"Sagittarius?" Kensi said, "I don't think so?"

She leant over and started typing on her laptop, "That's a winter sign, didn't you say your birthday was in March?"

"Yep, March 11th 1970." He said hoping it would be something cool, he could see himself with a cool star sign and born in the year of the snake, or the Tiger….that'd be cool. He sat back with a small smile, maybe he'd get a tiger tattoo.

Kensi looked at the laptop and then at Callen and burst out laughing.

Callen's head snapped up.

"WHAT?" he got up and looked over her shoulder… "No...Really?!" he exclaimed incredulously.

"What is it?" Deeks said and got up to look at the laptop.

Callen grabbed it off the desk and shot off out of the bullpen.


"Nope. No way, ya ain't seeing, not happening." He ran off with her laptop until he was stopped by a voice from nowhere.

"Mr. Callen, Give Ms Blye back her laptop. I will not have you playing around with company equipment," Hetty's voice boomed over hidden loudspeakers.

"But…..Hetty!" Callen said looking around he couldn't see her anywhere, his shoulders slumped, he sighed and handed back the laptop as Kensi marched triumphantly back to the bullpen.


"I don't get it G, what's the problem?" Sam said.

"I'm a flippin' Dogfish!" Callen grumbled as Kensi burst into fits of laughter.

Deeks grinned as Sam looked on confused.

"You're a Pisces, and born in the year of the Dog." Deeks explained.

Callen slumped in his chair, "Why….why couldn't I be that Horse/man thing and born in the year of the Tiger, that's so much more cool. I hate fish!" he moaned.

"Fishboy!" Sam laughed, glad they hadn't asked him. He grabbed Kensi's laptop and just on the off-chance put his own date of birth in there.

Stifling a smile Hetty who had heard every word walked into the bullpen.

"Mr. Callen, we are what we are, Pisces are dedicated and kind with a good temper." She told him of the good things she knew about the star sign. "Although they can be recessive and sentimental and slightly unrealistic." She added with a small grin.

"Great!" Callen sulked.

Sam looked up with a face like thunder, "It could be worse." He grumbled. "I'm a bloody bunny!"

JulieJeanette: I'm only on chapter nine, but so far I am loving this story!. I am on pins and needles hoping that they find good men in their lives by the end. I am American and so the British tone and lingo ('knickers,' 'sod it' ) of the book is very appealing. I had to find out how much '12 stone' was by goog...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed. I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

jaydenmatheny: it I absolutely amazing on if the best books I have personally read❤ I highly recommend this to anyone 13+ back to my point I love this book and there should definitely be a second I would most likely but this book if I ever saw it in a store

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Jacklyn Reynolds: As a mother of an Autistic child, I know how hard it can be. I love how beautiful you made everything. That's all I can say. I need to grab a tissue.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...
