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!"

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging.

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...
