The team was sure they knew Gibbs and Ducky. Gibbs was the mentor/leader/kindergarten teacher of all of them, speaking by giving commands; Ducky was an eccentric who spoke to corpses. However, like an iceberg only one part of their characters was visible. Eight-ninths of the men’s personas was underwater, hidden from view, the ocean hiding the shape and form of the true men.
In private, Ducky didn’t ramble. He didn’t need to as he could speak with his hands, his lips and his heart. Likewise, Jethro would respond with his body’s gestures.
Their hidden depths spoke louder than their words.
