Gibbs pushed Stan away, hard. 'What the fuck do you think you are doing?' He demanded.

'I'm in love with you. I know we can be good together. I think that I can be a terrific senior field agent for you. The best you ever had, and after hours as a couple, I think we could be out of this world.'

'You're kidding me, aren't you?' Gibbs replied hoping that Stan would say that it was a joke.

Stan moved forward to try and kiss him again. Gibbs put out his hand and stopped the younger man from getting any closer.

'Gibbs,' Stan paused for a moment. He took a deep breath to calm himself down. He needed to get what he was feeling across, to let him know how much he did love him. 'Jethro, I love you. I want to spend my life with you. I can be better than Tony.'

'Stan, I don't love you. I have never, ever thought about you in that way and I never will.' Gibbs lowered his hand. 'You and Tony are two different kinds of men. In Baltimore as soon as I had met him, I knew he was a excellent detective. He argued with me, joked around, and he made me smile. You never had the balls to stand up to me. If I am doing something stupid, Tony will pull me up on it.' He raised his hand to rub his eyes. Gibbs could feel the headache that had started to get worse. Deep down he knew that Stan was not quite ready give up. This case was going to be a nightmare. All he wanted was Tony to be back and watching his six.

'I'm going to prove to you that I can stand up to you. I am going to show you that I am the man you need in your personal life, as well as work one. Jethro can't you see that we could be magic together.' Stan begged.

Gibbs moved away from the wall and headed back to the street. 'You call me Gibbs, or boss, not Jethro. We don't have that kind of relationship, and we won't. No matter what you feel.' When Stan talked about magic Tony's smiling face, and laughing green eyes appeared in his thoughts. He and Stan would be nothing at all; he and Tony would be magic together. They would fight and argue. Tony would never back down if something were important enough. Tony was the person that fit in his work life, as well as his personal one. The thing was, would Gibbs ever have the balls to tell him, and would Tony ever forgive him to give them a chance.

Stan watched as Gibbs walked away. He would show Gibbs what he was talking about. He would stand up to the other man, he would become irreplaceable. All he had to do was somehow become Gibbs senior field agent permanently.


Jenny just stared at Tony for a moment. Her mind blank.

'I'm sorry Tony.' She paused. 'I obviously can't guarantee that at the moment. I would need to look into things.'

Tony smiled at her. 'I know nothing can be decided now. I had to tell you and to be honest with you.'

'How much time did Dr Pitt say you would need off?' Jenny asked and grinned as Tony chuckled.

'I had hoped you wouldn't ask, and that with everything else I told you it would just slip your mind.' The smile fell from his face. 'At the moment he says a minimum of a week, he is thinking more of two. Depending on how I react to the antibiotics, it could be more.'

'Ok, I'll sign you off for one at the moment, with the possibility of two. I will look to see if we have any positions available that would work for you.' Jenny stopped talking and looked at him. 'What about Gibbs?'

'What about him?' Tony muttered.

'You are going to tell him personally aren't you?' Jenny wanted to know.

'He doesn't care. He finally as the team he wants.' Tony growled.

'You don't genuinely think that, do you? I have heard him tell people that you are the best young agent his has ever worked with. If he didn't think that, he would have gotten rid of you years ago. Look how things were before you arrived. The probationary agents only lasted a month at the most.' Jenny wasn't sure if she should broach the other subject or not, she bit at her lip. 'Are you sure that this anger is not because of how you feel about him?' This was one area she knew how Tony felt.

Tony's eyes widened in surprise. 'I don't know what you mean.' He stammered.

'Tony, you're in love with him. I know what it's like to love him, bastard and all. I never had a chance really, I would never be Shannon. I then chose my career and left him. I said to him, when I became the director of NCIS all we had was a personal relationship. That didn't work so well. I was jealous of the women he dated. Like Colonel Mann.'

'You're still in love with him.' Tony stated amazed that he had never noticed that before.

'I think I always will be. Just like a lot of women he has dated, he's my Shannon. No one will ever measure up to him.' Jenny smiled a little sadly. No matter how much she loved him; there would never be anything between them. All she wanted now was for him to find someone. Jenny would like to see him with that person before she died. The more she thought about it, and going over all those times she watched them interact. How they spoke about each other, she was sure that Tony and Gibbs would be perfect for each other. If only Gibbs got his head out of his ass, apologised and told Tony how he felt.

'I..' Tony stopped not knowing what to say.

'He's my friend; I want him to be happy. I know that it's not going to be with me.' She watched as Tony's eyes narrowed as he stared at her. It was obvious now that his gut was telling him something was wrong.

'Jenny what's going on?' He asked.

'Nothing, I'll let you know if we have anything else to offer you, job wise.'

Tony nodded and smiled at her knowing that the conversation was finished, and he wasn't going to get the answers he wanted.

'Ok, thank you Jenny for everything.'

Jenny smiled at him. 'You're welcome. Let's go down and give Gibbs the news. Would you prefer it I did it privately?'

'Nah, tell them all in one go.'


Gibbs stormed back into the office, Stan close on his heels. As soon as McGee and Ziva see his face, they quickly both stare intently at their monitors. He turned and saw that Tony's desk was empty. Tony always managed to direct the Gibbs anger at himself, and then made a joke. He missed it.

'Agents Gibbs can I have a word.' Jenny called out as she walked down the stairs with Tony.

Gibbs eyes narrowed in suspicion as he stared at the two of them. He had a feeling, a bad feeling that it was going to be something he would not like.

'Yes, of course Director.' He replied sarcastically.

Jenny roller her eyes, she knew that this was not going to go well.

'Agent DiNozzo has been signed off sick for at least a week.'

'Are you ok Tony?' Gibbs asked as he turned to his SFA.

Tony turned to look at Jenny, and then back at Gibbs. 'I'm fine, well I will be.'

'Is that at all Director?'

'No, as off today Agent Burley is your senior field agent.

Gibbs turned his gaze to Tony. 'You mean until Tony comes back, right?'

Ziva and McGee look at each shock, and confusion cover their faces.

'No, as of now Tony is no longer your senior field agent. He is no longer on your team.'
