Tony rolled over in bed after turning his alarm off, he sighed knowing there was something wrong with this picture 'again'. He blinked his eyes open and it came as no surprise he was alone "Fuck Lee not again" he reached over to see if the sheets were warm but found them cold he gripped the sheet making a fist "Face it DiNozzo it's ending" he flug the covers off himself and headed for the bathroom for a shower. He shaved while the water headed up he ran everything over in his head as he gazed at himself in the mirror
They had been together 6 months at first it was a drunken mistake and they both agreed to leave it at that but a few weeks later Gibbs turned up at Tony's door with a bottle of Scotch and a pizza. Half way through the scotch Tony summand up the courage and came clean about his feelings for the older man, to his surprise Gibbs was very receptive to the idea, under one condition, they were not to date anyone else male or female. Tony agreed but he had a condition of his own that they weren't Boss and subordinate while out the office they were equal in every way including the bedroom meaning they both bottomed. Gibbs rolled his eyes but agreed. So six months went by they decided to date instead of just ending up in bed after a pizza, they went to the movies, went out to dinner, played basket ball at the Y and just hung out. They stayed mostly at Tony's apartment due to the fact that everyone just wondered in to Gibbs house whenever they felt like it, but one weekend out the three they stayed at the house and locked to door, pissing Fornel off after he wacked his nose thinking it would be open.
He chucked to himself as he rinsed his face in the sink at the sight of Tobias covering his nose while he banged on the door with his fist then looking shocked at Tony when he opened it "Idiot FBI" he smirked rinsing out the sink.
But something's changed these past two weeks, first it was Gibbs cancelling on him twice in a row saying he was busy then once not showing up at all saying time got away from him as he worked on his boat. That was the first week but this week as been even worse from not letting Tony in the house on Tuesday to three times this week leaving while Tony was asleep. He showed up after work they had sex then when Tony fell asleep he high tailed it out of there. Tony asked him if anything was wrong a few times but all he got was a grunt in return "I'll find out today one way or the other" he slammed the shower open then jumped in as he mumbled to himself in Italian
When he reached the office he noticed everyone was already there "You late DiNozzo" Gibbs barked.
Tony looked at his watch as he dropped his backpack "24 seconds late Boss"
"Still late" Gibbs said over his coffee cup
Tony fell into his chair "Write me up then" he turned his computer on egnoring the looks he was getting from his team
Ziva smirked at him "Late night Tony?"
"Nope" he opened a file and got to work
"So why are you late then?" McGee said
"I'm not and if you've got a problem Probie put in a complaint" he said not taking his eyes off the file
Tony sighed then looked over to McGee "No I'm sorry Tim, I'm just tired ignore me"
"We normally do" Ziva snickered
"Ye some more than others" He said under his breath but they heard him anyway he glanced at Gibbs who looked away with an almost guilty look
After several hours of paperwork everyone was becoming restless so Tony decided to take a trip down to see Abby apon entering the lab he stopped to see Gibbs and Abby whispering apon seeing him they stopped "Hay…..I was just wondering if you had any plans tonight Abs?"
She glanced at Gibbs then smiled "Sorry Tony I…..Have a date"
"O who with?"
It looked like Abby was struggeling to fins answer so Gibbs jumped in for her "Don't you have work to do DiNozzo?"
Tony looked to Gibbs when his lover barked at him for the tenth time that day "Ye" he shrugged and sighed turning away "I'll be at my desk" he walked out dragging his feet. He heard Abby giggeling as the elevator closed
"Are you guys busy tonight, I thought we could catch a movie or something?" he asked as he walked into the bullpen
"Sorry Tony I have plans" McGee said
"Me too" Ziva replied
He fell into his chair "I wonder what Jimmy's doing" he said as he picked up his phone, McGee walled over sitting on the corner of Tony's desk
"I think he's working late something about Ducky making him count stock" Tony put the phone down
Tony looked to McGee giving him a fake smile "Sure…just wanted to see a movie or something"
"Why not ask a girlfriend?"
Tony rubbed his face with his hand "I'm not in the mood…..It's fine I'll just have an early night, I could use it"
McGee nodded then headed back to his desk as Gibbs came from the elevator with a cup of coffee "Any headway on the cold case DiNozzo?"
"No Boss not yet"
"Stay late tonight see what you can find, I told the Director we'd have something soon"
"But….." he stopped as Gibbs sent him a glair "Is everyone else staying?"
"Nope just you" Gibbs sat down smirking over his coffee
Tony narrowed his eyes at the other man "Can I have a word in your office…Boss?"
Gibbs went to say something when Vance called from the balcony "Agent Gibbs my office please"
" I have a meeting DiNozzo maybe later"
"Look if I've…."
"Not now Tony" he said as he passed his desk heading upstairs
Everyone was clocking off ready to head home when Gibbs finally came back down "McGee, Ziva get out of here" they didn't need to be told twice as they jumped up grabbing there things "Try and find a lead on that case before you clock off DiNozzo" Gibbs grabbed his gun and coat following the rest of his team out
"Boss before you go could…."
"No I have plans" He replyed at the doors closed
After several hours trying to make sense of the case and trying to keep his mind off his lover he finally gave up "Fuck it" he slammed the file closed then looked to Gibbs desk with a sigh. He slowly got up stretching his back trying to work out the kinks and glanced at the clock "9 O'clock that long enough" he picked up his backpack then stopped "If he's screwing around I'll shoot him" He dropped his bag and logged into his computer "Lets see where you are Lee" he mumbled. He entered Gibbs cell number and put in a trace after a few moments the location was reveled "24th and elm" he throught about that street "A few coffee shops…arr Mario's" he shut everything down and headed out
He parked outside the restarant debating what to do "If it had just been today then ok…but he's been weird for two weeks, he won't talk to me, treating me like a fuck buddy…..I didn't sign on for that…..screw it" he throu his car door open and jogged across the street.
He walked in glancing around and ordered a large scotch, once he got his drink he wondered into the main dining area stopping at a certain table in shock "Nice" he whispered to himself. There sat Gibbs, Ziva, McGee, Jimmy, Abby and Ducky all tucking into there deserts while they laugh amongst themselves. He swallowed his large scotch in one then went back to the bar for another after he downed that one he just bought the bottle and headed back into the dinning area he walked over to the table and stopped behind Jimmy "Well isn't this nice"
Everyone's head shot up as they heard his voice Gibbs barked "What are you doing here?" As soon as he said the words his regreated them, seeing hurt in his young lovers eyes "Tony…"
Tony shrugged "Don't bother Gibbs…I don't care, you know the dinner thing at Ziva's a few years back was hurtful enough, but this is something else" he took a large drink from the bottle of scotch then pushed Gibbs back down into his seat as he tried to take the bottle away "My father always said 'there's no such things as friends Anthony and after this I think he's right"
Abby jumped up "No Tony…"
"Have a good night" he shrugged off Abby's hand then headed for the door Gibbs jumped up chacing after him, everyone got up and looked out the window to see Gibbs stopping Tony as he reached his car
Gibbs pulled the bottle from the other mans hand "HAY" Tony barked
"FUCK OFF" he went for the bottle but Gibbs kept it out of reach "LEAVE ME ALONE BASTARD"
"Or what?...You'll treat me like shit?...news flash bastard your already THERE" He opened the door to the car but Gibbs slammed it closed
"Would you stop for a moment?"
Tony snatched the bottle back while Gibbs was trying to stop him getting in the car, he took a drink and glaired at Gibbs "If you wanted to dump me all you had to do was say so, for two weeks you've treated me like shit and now this" he took another drink then dropped the almost empty bottle on the floor then turned and walked away
Gibbs grabbed his shoulders, swung him around and slammed him into the car, Tony pushed him back but with drinking all that scotch in five minutes made him a little unsteady he struggled until he was out of breath then slumped back leaning against the car "Why?...WHY?" he turned his head and throw up Gibbs rubbed his back until he finished then stood him up wrapping his around his shoulders and laying his head on his own
"Listen to me, can you do that?"
Tony sighed "Just get it over with so I can go home"
"I'm not dumping you Tony" when Tony went to raise his head Gibbs tightened his grip "Just listen" He kissed his neck and ran his fingers through his hair "I'm sorry I've been a bastard these past few week but I have a good reason, I'm asking for a few more day then I'll tell you everything…..I promise"
"Why can't you just tell me now?"
"I just can't, do you trust me?"
Tony shrugs "With my six, sure. With my heart….a few week ago I wouldn't have thought twice…now…..I'm a little worried Lee"
"By Tuesday everything will become clear"
"I'm going home" he pulled away this time Gibbs let him go "Are you coming home with me?"
Gibbs sighed "I can't I have something to do"
Tony nodded his head as he bit his lip trying to hold himself together "Ok…..what about this weekend…..it my turn to stay at the house?"
Gibbs cupped his cheek "Not this weekend Tony I'm busy…but I'll make it up to you"
Tony let his shoulders fall and removed Gibbs hand from his face "For someone who isn't supposed to be getting dump it sure as hell feels like it" He locked his car then whistled for one of the cabs that where lined up on the street "You better go back to your friends Boss, we wouldn't want them to know about us" he tossed Gibbs his car keys "I've drank to much, would you dump my car at NCIS?" without waiting for an answer he opened the cabs door that pulled up beside them "I'll see you Monday" he got in slamming the door Gibbs watched as the cab drove away
Monday morning came around all too slowly, after a boring weekend which he ignored everyone's calls from Abby to Ducky, he finally dragged himself out of bed making himself get ready for a job that he no longer wanted and to work with people that no longer wanted him. He dressed in his best suit, shined his shoes, spent far too long on his hair and took twice a long in the shower then he was finally ready to face them until he looked at himself in the full length mirror "Putts" he mumbled. He ruffeled up his hair and removed his suit putting on a pair of dress jeans and a polo neck sweater and a black jacket taking another look at himself he sighed "Screw it" he grabbed his gun and wallet then headed for the door remembering to call a cab
On at the office he noticed he was the first one in checking his watch he grunted "Gone 7 if I was late I'd get barked at" he went through his desk searching for his spare set of car keys once he found then he head for the garage to get his back pack. Once back at his desk he opened the cold case file he was working and kept his head down. Twenty minutes later McGee walked in with two cups of coffee he stopped at Tony's desk "Morning Tony"
Tony slowly raised his head and gave him a blank look "Morning" he looked back down to his file ignoring the other man,
McGee cleared his throat "Coffee?" he held the cup out
"No thanks" he replied without lifting his head
"It's your favourite?"
"I'm fine McGee" he turned on his computer dismissing the other man that sighed and headed for his own desk
They worked silently for about 10 minutes then Ziva walked in with a basket hanging over her arm "Tony guess what I've got?" McGee shook his head at her, warning her to back off but she didn't McGee sighed and watched it play out "Tony?"
"I'm busy" he kept his head down
She placed the basket on his open file "I brought you some cookies and I even made you some fudge…..you love my fudge"
He picket the basket up and put it on the floor never taking his eyes off his work "Thank you"
She leaned over him and lowered her voice "Are you alright?"
"Sure, why wouldn't I be" he waved her away she get the message and headed back to her own desk looking at McGee who shook his head to leave him alone
Abby was next she stood and watched him for a while finally working up the courage she pulled a chair from one of the desks and pushed beside Tony's "Hi"
"Hi" he carried on working while she bite her lip
"What's in the basket?"
"Nice…..so how was your weekend?" she slapped her hand over her mouth and swore under her breath
Tony looked sideways at her "It was fun, I went to dinner with some friends" he said sarcastically then stood up "I'm going to find the rest of this case file, something's missing"
Ziva jumped up "I can get it"
"I know what I'm looking for…..if Gibbs come in…you know what never mind" he dropped is pen and headed out.
Once out of sight McGee hissed "Abby"
She held her hands up "I panicked alright" she sighed and picked up the basket "So fudge?"
"Ye I felt bad" Ziva shrugged
Gibbs walked from the elevator "What's going on?"
"Well Tony's pissed for a start" Abby said biting into some fudge
"Hay that's for Tony" Ziva pulled the basket away from Abby Gibbs looked into it and grabbed a piece "Gibbs"
He shrugged and headed for his desk "So where is he?"
"He's gone to arcives, something about missing files" McGee informed the Senoiur agent
"So he's pissed?"
"We'll he hasn't said anything but he's not really talking so" McGee shrugged "I brought him coffee that he didn't want, Ziva brought him fudge and Abby put her foot in her mouth"
"Shut up Timmy" Abby snapped "I got flustered it wasn't my fault…..he made me nervous"
Gibbs nodded a little "Give him time, go on get to work"
She pushed the chair back and walked out in a huff while Ziva placed the basket back then headed for her own desk.
A few minutes later Tony came back with a few sheets off paper mumbleing to himself "Morning Tony" Gibbs said
Tony lifted his head and nodded once "Boss"
"What you got there?"
"There was a few things missing from this file, no wonder it was pissing me off…anyway it was miss filed" he re-took his seat and got back to work after some silence he sighed "Thanks for dropping my car off"
Gibbs shrugged "No problem" he got up and sat on the edge of Tony's desk and lowered his voice "What did you do this weekend?"
"Nothing what about you?" he asked with his head down
"I can't tell you"
"Fine" he sighed "look I need to get this done so if there's nothing else….Boss?"
Gibbs lowered his head even more "Hay" he waited until tony looked up "It's nothing bad…I promise"
"If you say so" He turns to his computer more or less turning his back on Gibbs who sighs himself then moves back to his desk
After several hours of silence every ones a bit jumpy so Gibbs sends them to lunch "Come on Tony I'll buy you a burger" he says as he grabs his gun
"No thanks I…"
"O grow up Tony" Ziva snapped "Your behaving like a child, so we went to dinner without it's not the end of the world, get over it already"
"HAY" Gibbs barked silencing the whole floor as he moved in on Ziva
"it's fine Boss" Tony stood up
Gibbs stopped at Tony's voice "LIKE HELL IT IS"
Tony ran his fingers through his hair then picked up his file "I was going to say I think I'm close to getting a lead on this cold case, but I'm waiting for someone to call me back, so I'd rather wait at my desk so if you could bring me something back I'd be grateful"
McGee narrowed his eyes at Ziva "Tackful as ever Agent David" he turned to Tony "We'll bring you something Tony"
Tony nodded and sat back down Ziva moved to him but she stopped when he waved her away "I'm busy go to lunch"
"I'm sorry, it's just you've hardly said a word all morning and it was getting to me"
"It's fine now please leave me alone"
She hesitated for a moment then Gibbs sent her a glair
