Chapter 3: Did I Take You by Surprise
“Look what this stupid girl did!” came the shrill sound of Mandy’s voice, obviously very angry and very pained as Ziva returned with both Tim and DiNozzo in tow. After he’d gotten dressed and left the dance studio, he’d run to Tim’s room where he’d called for the paramedics, and then asked Tim to come along, stating that he could help calm Mandy down. Mandy, Ziva thought. So at least one mystery name was solved.
“It was an accident!” Ziva couldn’t help how her accent became more noticeable when she was stressed, and it seemed that Mandy wasn’t too keen on foreigners. Or maybe it was just guests in general. “Besides, you were not looking where you were going, either.”
“Do you know what you’ve just done?”
“Well it seems pretty obvious that you have broken your leg, and for that, I am sorry. Truly,” Ziva replied earnestly, feeling a wave of guilt wash over her. She’d already apologized, but for some reason, it didn’t seem to be enough, no matter how many times she said it. She wasn’t usually so clumsy, and she’d never physically caused an injury to anyone before, even though she’d been trained – at her father’s insistence – in several types of martial arts.
“No, you don’t understand at all,” Mandy continued, the sharpness of her voice stabbing at Ziva’s conscience, making her feel even worse about the situation.
