Chapter 13 - Epilogue
Two years later...
"Oh. My. God. This is ridiculous. We were meant to leave twenty minutes ago!" Tony said through the bathroom door.
"Deal with it Tony," came Ziva's reply.
"Seriously. I bet Abby doesn't do this to McGee!"
"They have been living together longer than us!"
"Completely irrelevant. Come on, Ziva," Tony replied impatiently, heading back to the lounge room.
"You do not rush the 'getting ready' portion of the evening," Ziva said, walking into the room.
"You look beautiful," Tony said, rubbing his hands on his legs.
"You said to dress up, so I did," Ziva replied, twirling her hair slightly. She was wearing the same dress she wore on their first night undercover all those years ago.
"Perfect," Tony said.
"Tony? Are you all right? You're sweating," Ziva said, putting her hand on his forehead. "You don't feel hot..."
"I'm fine," Tony said, swallowing. "Come on Tony. You can do this."
"Are you sure? We can stay home if you don't feel alright. I know you've had this booking for a while but-"
"No, we can still go. Just, ah, give me a sec," he said nervously. "Ziva?"
"Should I be scared or...?"
"No! No no no! Don't be scared."
"Alright. Sit down before you fall over though."
"You can sit down if you want. Actually, that might be better. You sit down," Tony said. Ziva sat, looking at him curiously.
"Alright. Ziva, you know how much I love you. You make me so happy and I love being around you."
"Oh my God," Ziva said. Tony silenced her by raising his hand.
"I want us to be together forever," Tony finished quickly. He reached into his pocket and knelt on the floor in front of her.
"Ziva, will you marry me?" he said, opening the small green box in his hand and showing her the beautiful diamond ring.
"Oh my God," Ziva repeated, putting her hands to her mouth.
"An answer would be good," Tony said nervously. Ziva took the ring out of the box and examined it. "Ziva?"
Ziva started laughing. "Of course I will! Tony! We're getting married!" she squealed as she put the ring on.
Tony stood up and hugged her. They broke apart when they heard voices from the hallway outside the apartment.
"Shhhh!! They'll hear us!"
"They probably aren't even there. Tony said they were going to dinner a while ago."
"One way to check," said the last voice. The lock clicked, and three people appeared in the doorway. Ziva and Tony stared at them.
"Oh. We are so busted," McGee said. Abby was trying to see over his shoulder, while Gibbs just stood there.
"Did you ask her?" Abby said impatiently. Ziva punched Tony in the arm.
"You told them you were going to propose?"
Abby squealed. "So you asked her?!"
"Yes, he did," Ziva smiled.
"I said yes."
"Yay!" Abby said. After a round of congratulations, Tony shoed everyone out of the apartment. He turned back to Ziva.
"Ready for dinner future Mrs DiNozzo?"
Ziva smiled. "Absolutely."
