Chapter Seven

Tony paled suddenly as he stared at Gibbs. That wasn't something he meant to say. He was never going to tell the older man how much he loved him. Damn his big mouth.

'Uh yes us, as team friends, you know.' Tony tried to cover up his mistake.

'Tony, please be honest with me.' Gibbs begged as he squeezed Tony's hand.

Tony stared into Gibbs' blue eyes. He had never seen such emotion in the older man's face before, well it had never been aimed at him before.

'I uhhhh. I could possibly have feelings for you.' Tony looked down at their hands afraid of mistaking what Gibbs meant and be kicked out. He never wanted to lose the friendship they had. That was one of the things that he' hated it seemed that they had grown further and further apart.

Gibbs couldn't help the smile that appeared on his face. Tony had feelings for him. He hoped that they could work something out. If he couldn't have the younger man on his team than being with him in his personal time would be fantastic.

'Well I could possibly have feelings for you.' Gibbs replied feeling a little shy and just like a teenager again.

Tony's head shot up, his hazel eyes widening in surprise. 'You do?'

Gibbs couldn't help but laugh. Yes, I do.'

'So what do we do now?' Tony asked. This was Gibbs, how did you go about dating him?

'We take it one day at a time. We talk on the phone, go out for meals, meet for lunch. Get to know each other.' Gibbs grinned.

'Ok, I can do that.' Tony agreed immediately.

Gibbs gave Tony a gentle kiss on the lips; he smiled as he pulled back. 'No, we can do that.'

Tony smiled incandescently at him. 'Yes, we can do that.'


Gibbs walked into the bullpen with a smile on his face. He and Tony had spent all evening just talking and stealing kisses from each other. They both knew about each other's pasts, and Tony knew how much of a bastard he could be.

Stan, Ziva and Tim all looked confused, as they watched him head up to see the director.

'I thought he was with Tony last night, and would find out why Tony was leaving?' McGee asked.

Stan didn't like this one bit; he hated the fact that it could have been Tony that put that smile on Gibbs' face. That didn't matter he was still going to prove to Jethro that they could be perfect together. There was no doubt in his mind. It was just going to take him a little more time to do it.


'Good morning Jethro, Tony did explain his reasons to you didn't he?' Jenny asked as soon as the older man walked into her office.

'Yeah he did. I still hate it, but his health is more important.' Gibbs paused for a moment, 'Have you found him anything?'

'When I do find anything for Tony, Tony will be the first person I tell.' Jenny paused and just stared at him for a moment. 'I guess it is a good thing he is no longer in your team.'

Gibbs stared at her in confusion. 'What do you mean?'

'You and Tony, I assume you talked more than just about his health.' Jenny chuckled at the slight blush that tinged his skin. 'I'm glad. I know I have not always been fair. I do want you to be happy Jethro. You know that I always wished we could have been more, but seeing you and Tony. Well, I think you will be phenomenal.' The smiled left her face. 'Be wary of Stan, he hasn't given up on you.'

'How do you know that?' Gibbs asked, even though he had been thinking the same thing.

'It's you Gibbs. I can't think of anyone that has ever fallen out of love with you. Usually hate is added, but the love is always there. I know.' Jenny smiled sadly.

'Jen, what's going on with you?' Gibbs asked. He had never seen her act this way. His gut told him something was wrong, and it was something he was going to hate.

'Nothing Jethro, I've just been thinking about things.'

'Ok' Gibbs turned and walked away but stopped at the door. 'If you need to talk, I am your friend.'

'Thank you, that is good to know.' Jen smiled again until the door closed behind him. She glanced down at the paper in her hand. 'I wish I could tell you.'


Tony grinned as the elevator door opened. He felt as if he were walking on air. When he woke up this morning he had thought he'd dreamt it all, but there had been a text message on his cell from Gibbs. He didn't know what surprised him more the cute I miss you already message, or the fact that Gibbs did know how to actually text. The smile from his face vanished as soon as he saw Gibbs' team and no Gibbs.

'Agent Burley, McGee, David.' Tony replied politely.

'Why are you calling us Agent's, Tony?' Ziva asked.

'That is Agent DiNozzo to you. I let you call me Tony as we were team-mates; I had thought once upon a time we were friends. I was clearly wrong about that. I don't want there to be any misunderstanding we are only work colleagues.'

Gibbs walked down the stairs and smiled as soon as he saw Tony. The worry about Jen left his mind for now. As much as he hated hearing it what Tony was saying was true. They had not actually acted very friendly to him in any way shape or form.

'Tony.' Gibbs spoke before anyone else could say anything.

Tony turned and couldn't help the smile that lit up his face. 'Jethro, I'm meeting the director now. Would you like to meet for lunch if you have no case?'

'That sounds great. I will let you know if there are any problems.'

Tony headed up the stairs and turned. 'Just let me know the time, and where you want to meet, and I'll be there.'

'Will do.' Gibbs replied as he watched Tony's ass as he went up the stairs.

'Gibbs?' Stan placed his hand on Gibbs' shoulders.

Gibbs turned and glared at the offending hand. Stan moved it quickly.

'Do we have any news?' Gibbs growled and watched as they all scurried off to their desks.


'So fantastic news about you and Jethro then?' Jenny chuckled.

'He told you?' Tony gave her a surprised look.

'No, he didn't. I could tell by the look on his face. If his hadn't given it away yours does.' She saw the panicked look on the younger man's face. 'Don't worry, I know because I know you both, and I know how you feel.'

'I don't think it will be a secret for long. We're meeting for lunch. It was obvious it wasn't a work thing.' Tony laughed.

'It doesn't matter as long as you too are happy, and you no longer work under him.'

'Talking of work, I guess you called me here as you have news?' Tony asked.

'Yes, well I want you to be an intelligence specialist, but for that we need to bring up your computer skills.'

'Please tell me you aren't going to get McGee to train me. I've already spoke to them and told them to call me Agent DiNozzo as we weren't working in the same team and we aren't friends.'

Jenny laughed. 'No, what I want you to do is take two courses a week. That is all they are doing. The rest of the time I want to give you cold cases, and hand you some promising recruits, so they get a bit more experience with how things work here, and the paperwork. Hopefully some of your investigative expertise will rub off on them.'
