The Storm Before The Calm
It was 0630 and Very Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo sat at his desk, it was unusual for him to be at work this early but he just couldn't sleep. He looked across the room to where the very alluring Probationary Agent Ziva David usually sat, she was the reason for his lack of sleep, had been for a while. He just couldn't get her off his mind! Leaning back in his chair he let his mind go to that place where he got to be the man Ziva came to for comfort, for love! Just as he was about to touch the imaginary Ziva the elevator made its usual DING.
Tony sat forward and looked up and the sight he saw concerned him! Ziva, looking like she'd just fell out of bed and with a face like thunder, stormed from the elevator to her desk, slammed what looked like a very full sports bag on top of the desk and fell back into her chair making it roll back a little. "Morning Zee-vah" Tony drawled trying to lighten her mood, giving her one of his killer smiles. But she just looked at him with daggers. Tony cringed and tried once more "Problems Zee-vah"? Ziva looked up from the paperwork on her desk and sighed "If you call my apartment being under 4 inches of water a problem then yes i have a problem"! Tony just stared at her hoping she'd explain, he didn't want to piss her off more than she was already!
Ziva opened her desk drawer then slammed it shut, ran her hands through her hair and explained tiredly "The pipe in my kitchen burst, and i did not realise until my neighbour downstairs was banging on my door at 0430, ranting about a drooping ceiling, then for the next 90 mins i was soaking up water with towels. I have not had a shower and had no time to run a brush through my hair".
Tony had noticed this but also noted that she looked great, he could update his dream scenario! Tony took a moment to think of a wise answer then replied "That is definitely a problem, but one that can be fixed Ziva!" Then he winced waiting for the fall out but Ziva just sighed "I know this Tony but now i can not go back to my apartment until the carpets are cleaned and dried, i left the key with the front desk they are arranging for someone to be there this morning, so for tonight i'll have to go to a hotel!"
Tony sat back and thought for a min, could he ask her to stay with him? Surely that is not crossing a line it’s just helping out his partner! But before his brain could function properly his lips started saying "Stay at mine tonight, i'll take the couch!" She looked round at him with an unsure look in her eyes "I do not know if that is a good idea Tony!" She kept her eyes on him as if trying to read what he was thinking, then leaned back in her chair. "Ok Tony i will take you up on your offer but i'll take the couch can't have you hurting your back" This was said with a slight smirk on her face.
Suddenly Gibbs burst past them; they hadn't even heard him coming in! "Grab your gear, dead marine down by the marina". Taking a drink from his always handy coffee, he was heading to the elevator already! "Aaahh boss, McTardy isn't here yet, should we give him a call"? Gibbs just continued to stare ahead then replied "He's getting the van”! And then Tony felt that familiar smack to the back of his head. He closed his eyes and hoped he’d not have any regrets this time tomorrow!
Sweat was trickling down his back and forehead, the warm September heat lasted until well into the evening. Tony opened the door to his apartment and let Ziva step through first. He still couldn’t believe she was here!
Placing her bag on the sofa she turned to him “Where is your bathroom, i really need to shower? That is unless you were planning to use it first”! Although he was hot and sticky with sweat he could not deny her “Uh, the bathroom is this way, i will get you fresh towels. Just make yourself at home”!
Walking towards the linen closet he looked over his shoulder and saw Ziva getting a toiletry bag and what looked a pair of boxers and vest! He rolled his eyes, he’d been hoping she’d wear something a little sexier!
Taking a towel from the closet he handed it to her as she walked into the bathroom. “Need someone to wash your back Zee-vah” Tony said winking at her. Ziva just chuckled “dream on Tony” and shut the door!
When Ziva emerged from the bathroom Tony was having a cold beer and catching up on the basketball results. He paused the bottle in mid air when he saw Ziva in the outfit he thought earlier would be less than attractive but man had he been wrong. The shorts were tighter than he’d imagined and showed off a really toned bottom and the vest was just as tight. It was like someone had just painted her naked body with Black paint!
“Wow, Ziva thats some set of pajama’s”! Tony said hardly taking his eyes off of her. “I wear what i feel comfortable in Tony, it gets hot”! Ziva was staring at his cold beer, licking her lips because she was so dry from the heat! Tony got up and got her one from the fridge, handing it to her he said “I’m just gonna jump in the shower, watch whatever you want on the tv and help yourself from the fridge"!
Ziva turned the tv to the classic movie channel, something she often did these days just to familiarise herself to some of the movies Tony constantly talked about. Getting comfy on the sofa, Ziva put her head on one of the cushions and felt a wave of tiredness fall over her.
Tony sang through the whole shower, his mood had picked up since he got home. After drying himself off he slipped on a pair of jogging bottoms, his usual bed attire of nothing just wouldn’t work tonight. Walking through to the front room he heard the familiar sound of Al Pacino, Ziva was watching Scarface! But when he got to the sofa he saw her, her hair fanned out over the cushion a stray strand over her face. He fought the urge to tuck it behind her ear and lost, he took the hair between his two fingers and swept it back strocking her face with his thumb while doing so.
Ziva felt every step he had take towards her, she felt his breath when he knelt down in front of her. But when he touched her face it was like a surge of electricity ran through her body. Opening her eye’s she saw Tony jump slightly, and knowing he’d move away she grabbed his arm. “What are you doing Tony“!
“Uh, I was just fixing your hair. It was over your face”. “No Tony, I ment why are you moving away. Surely you did not come over here just to fix my hair”! Tony just stared at her, she had a sexy teasing smirk on her face. Oh how he’d love to kiss that smile off her face! And just as if she was reading his mind, she wrapped her arm around his neck.
“Are you or are you not going to kiss me”! It was said as a statement rather than a question and before he knew it his lips were being drawn to hers. Her lips were so soft but they were hot and passionate, although they had kissed before undercover this was like nothing he had experienced before. It was like her lips were made to join with his!
Ziva could not believe she had actually made the first move. She had wanted him for so long and now she had him in her arms. His skin felt like it was on fire and he was kissing her like he was devouring her. She could only imagine what it would be like to sleep with him and knowing how strong the chemistry was between them she knew she’d find out!
Tony pulled back first and it took all his strength to do so. He looked into her eye’s “Ziva is this what you want”? “Yes Tony, I want you. I always have”! Tony felt his heart rise in his chest, finally she was his, the look in her eye’s told him so. He rose to his feet “C’mon Ziva, be my soul mate. I’m all for you”! And he led her to the bedroom.
