Well,this took a lot of thought. Comments are equal to happiness. This has a preview of the song Mockingbird by my favorite artist,Rob Thomas.DISCLAIMER-Don't own the characters or the music. I'm not going to write another chapter until there are at least 5 comments!
"Tony!" I exclaimed as I saw the most valuable person in my life fall to the ground.
I ran to his side,relieved that it was only his shoulder that was shot.
"I'm okay,Ziva." he breathed.
I wrapped my arms around him,with my gun in my left hand. As my hands joined at the back of his neck,I shot at the shooter,who stood saying.
"A warning from your father,Ms. David."
I unwrapped my arms around him.The shooter ran off,and we quickly turned around,walking out of the warehouse.
"DiNozzo? What happened?"Gibbs asked.
"I think I was shot by Mossad."
"Ziva and McGee,pack up. Tony go sit in the car."
I was still shaking from the expirience. Tony was too imporant to me to loose.
"Ziva,your shaking." McGee said in a worried tone.
I sat in the car,patiently waiting for Ziva to bring more bandages. While I was waiting I pulled out something I had written a long time ago.
"You tell me to go away,
I thought about why I had written this,it would probably be useless to her.
"You tell me you hate me,
why can't you see?"
I wish I could forget everything.
"I walk up the stairs,
sick of all the dares."
Thinking of that night.
"I knock on the door,
although my heart is sore.
You answer the ring,
and I can feel birds sing."
Stupidest line of them all.
"Come in,you say,
I go away. Knowing you don't want me there,
knowing you don't care."
Ziva approached the sedan,carrying a lot of bandages.
"Finally!" Tony said with a relieved look.
"What's that in your hand?" she said to him, putting the keys into the ignition.
"No,your not driving!" Tony said franticly,ignoring the situation,putting the poem in his pocket.
"Yes,she is,DiNozzo,all the way to the hospital." Gibbs said with a small smirk.
Everyone was in the waiting room,pacing until Tony and the nurse approached them. Gibbs,McGee,and Abby were not as frantic as Ziva.
"Ziva,what are you so worried about?" Abby said to Ziva curling her pigtails in her finger.
"I'm not worried!" Ziva hissed back.
"Are you implying that I have a crush on Tony?"
"Well,I do not! I hate Tony!
At that moment Tony was around the corner,in time to hear the ending sentence.
"Thanks." he said to Ziva,in his rarely used serious voice.
She turned around,to see Tony's depressed face.
He was walking to his car,even though he shouldn't be driving for three reasons.
1.)He took pain meds.
2.)His shoulder was just shot.
3.)He had tears in his eyes.
"Shouldn't someone go with him!" Ziva said to Gibbs with a worried look.
"What do you care,you hate him."
I turned on the care radio,hoping to find a good song to blare.
"And now here's Rob Thomas with Mockingbird." the annoying DJay said.
"Here we stand,"
"Perfect." I thought.
"Somewhere between this moment,and the end.
"Will we bend,or will we open up ,and take this whole thing in?"
"This sucks! She hates me!" I said to myself.
"Everybody else is smilin',man there smiles don't fade,you don't even wonder why,you just don't think that way."
"Maybe,you and me got lost somewhere,we can't move on ,we can't stay here."
"This is my official song."
"Maybe,we've just had enough,or maybe we ain't meant for this love."
"I wish we were!"
"You and me tried everything,and still that Mockingbird won't sing!"
"Well,man this life seems hard enough,well,maybe we ain't meant for this love."
At that moment,I was home,so I turned off my car,and would listen to the song later on my laptop.
We were back at the building,and I called Tony.
He did not pickup.
But,when McGee called,he did.
I walked up the stairs to see Gibbs in Vance's office. They were having a conversation,that I admit,I wish I had not interupted.
"Miss David,what do you think your doing?" As Vance turned around in his seat,and Gibbs sat up from the uncomfortable chair.
"I need to talk...to...,"
"Go see him." Gibbs said nonchallantly.
Ziva drove to Tony's house to see that he was,indeed,home safely. She swallowed her pride,and walked up the stairs,that were soaked with rain water. She knocked on his door.
He opened it,grinding his teeth.
"What?"he said in a asertive tone.
"Gibbs asked for me to check on you."
"I'm fine,now bye."
"Tony,let me in,we need to talk."
"Fine." he said motioning for her to enter.
"Is your shoulder alright?"
"Get to the point."
"I'm sorry,I do not hate you,it's just that Abby,was saying that I have a crush on...you."
"Thank you,now give me a hug." he said with the most charming smile.
They hugged for the first time. It was very teen-like,but fantastic.
"It's intresting,right?" Tony said.
"The rain,it makes me feel,alive."
I grabbed Tony's hand and walked out the door.
"Ziva,what are you doing?"
"Something slightly romantic."
I took out my phone,pressed to his ear and said "Listen."
"I don't wanna love you now if you'll just leave someday,I don't wanna turn around if you'll just walk away."
"Don't walk away,Ziva."
At that moment I gave him a small kiss.
