Author's Notes: This is in response to the 11/23/03 challenge on the LiveJournal community 15minuteficlets. The challenge word was "surrender".


She unlocked the door and pulled him inside. Slamming it shut with her foot, she grabbed him and pulled him to her for a long, hot kiss. He pushed her against the wall and pressed his body to hers. She reached for the light switch, but he grabbed her wrists and pinned them above her head. 'Who needs light, anyway?' she thought fuzzily. His tongue traced the seam of her lips, and she opened her mouth to him, making a small sound of surrender. He plundered her mouth, biting her lips, sucking on her tongue.

He brought one hand down to her shirt and began unbuttoning it. Growling impatiently, he yanked on it, sending buttons skittering across the floor. His teeth began to nip at her neck, and she leaned her head back, exposing her throat to him.

He finally released the grip he had on her wrists. Kneeling before her, he unbuckled her belt and unzipped her pants. As he slid her pants down, she tangled her fingers through his silvery hair. She grinned as he discovered the secret she had been hiding all night--she wasn't wearing any panties. His piercing blue eyes glowed with desire. She shivered at the possessive look on his face. He licked his lips, and she closed her eyes. Suddenly, the phone rang. She tried to move, but couldn't. It rang, and rang, and rang...


Suddenly, her eyes snapped open. She sat up in bed, breathing heavily. "Damn it!" she yelled in a frustrated voice. Reaching over to her nightstand, she grabbed the still-ringing telephone. "What?" she snapped.

"Did I interrupt something?" an amused voice asked.

Kate suppressed a groan. She could just imagine the look on Tony's face if she answered, 'Yeah; another erotic dream about our boss.' However, she loved her job, and didn't want to lose another one within a six-month period. She replied, "You're a pervert, Tony."

"Yeah, well, I try," the NCIS agent said unabashedly. "Gibbs wants you down here ASAP."

Kate sighed. "Give me a few minutes, all right? I was sound asleep up until a minute ago."

She could almost hear the sly grin crossing his face. "Dreaming about me, Kate?"

"Dinozzo, if I ever dream about you, they'll be nightmares. I'll be there in half an hour." She hung up before he could say anything else.
