Summary: After the events of Bloodbath, Tim McGee accepts a offer from a total stranger
Author's Note: A few weeks ago I was watching some NCIS episodes and came across Bloodbath. I hated both Abby and Gibbs in it.

He could still smell blood and decomposition; one of the disadvantages of all the work the family psychosurgeons had done to help him release the abilities he had unconsciously suppressed as a child was that his sense of smell had become extremely acute. Gwen was only half-kidding when she called him the Torchwood bloodhound.
