Righteous Anger: Kensi’s Journal 3/28/21


3/28/21

Today was another one of those days that was so long I don’t even know where to start describing it.  Poor Nell, feeling all of the responsibility of losing track of Anna after we traded her to Katya for Joelle.  Righteous anger isn’t something I’m used to seeing from Nell, but she wasn’t wrong and I’m glad she was able to rid herself of some of it with me, even if a little bit was directed at me.  I’d like to say my attempt at a pep talk was a clever attempt to shake my friend out of her self-blame, but it wasn’t.  Regardless, our acting operations manager only needed a few minutes to get herself back in the game and on the phone to anyone who might help us find Anna.

Staying on the subject of blaming oneself, Deeks feels horrible that we promised Arkady we’d take care of Anna and then lost her to the psychopath who wants her dead.  It would be bad enough if she was only Arkady’s daughter.  But we’ve known Anna for years, both as Callen’s on/off girlfriend and as an occasional member of our team.  She’s one of us, and we let her down today.  Deeks is right, we are better than this.  And after we’ve had some sleep we’ll get back to doing what we do best and we’ll get Anna back.

One good thing about Deeks’ guilt over Anna—he’s forgotten, at least for now, that Arkady and Bertie seem to have developed some sort of “relationship” over Zoom.  It took all the self-control I had not to make step-father jokes about Arkady, and that’s only because I wouldn’t put it past Bertie to land herself a Russian with criminal ties as hubby #3.  The scary thing is that I can totally see them together—they’re both bossy, full of life, and have no filter between their brains and their mouths.  A formula for marital success, for sure!

As much as I hated to admit to Deeks how much Kessler has been in my head, his offer to help me hunt him down didn’t surprised me at all.  I knew Deeks would respond that way, but I can’t allow him to do that for me.  I know how the other dark things he’s done in his life have affected him and I won’t be responsible for adding to that.  So I guess we won’t go looking for Kessler, but we’ll damn sure be ready when he comes looking for me.

Turns out I've been writing fan fiction since before it was a "thing" on the internet (okay, even before there was an internet). I spent many a boring junior high history class coming up with more exciting stories for my favorite soap opera characters. I continue to enjoy the creative outlet it provides in my still-boring but now adult life.

    • Thank you, Sassy! As you know, I would love to see these two in a sitcom after the show ends–one that features our favorite LAPD detective cum NCIS investigator and his wife as they make their way through raising kids with the help of his zany mother and former criminal step-father!

  3. Great job. One thing tho, Kensi can’t keep Deeks out of whatever it takes to wipe out Kessler. Not just partners, husband and wife!!

  4. Thank you, Mike. And I agree, Kensi can’t keep Deeks out of the Kessler situation. Which I why I don’t think she’ll go hunt him down, she doesn’t want him to feel guilt over that.
