That Israeli Girl

Ziva leaned against the back of the Charger as she waited for Tony to retrieve her overnight bag from the trunk. Jack's words about Tony were still ringing through her ears. Finally, making up her mind, she leaned over towards Tony slightly in order to avoid being overheard by McGee and Abby who were cleaning out the backseat.

"Tony, would you like to come over for dinner tonight?" Ziva asked. Tony raised his eyebrows.

"Sure," Tony said after a moment. "What are you making?"

"Lasagna," Ziva said, knowing that it was Tony's favorite dish.

"Meet you at your place after work?" Tony said.

"That's fine," Ziva replied.

Later that evening Tony found himself sitting on Ziva's couch with a cold beer in his hand; Ziva was in the kitchen putting the finishing touches on dinner. Tony found himself thinking back to earlier that day and the conversation that he had had with Jackson.

Tony was folding up the blankets he had used when Jack walked into the room.

"You're that DiNozzo boy," Jackson observed.

"Yes sir," Tony replied.

"How long have you been working with my son?" Jack asked.

"Almost eight years," Tony said, doing the mental math quickly.

"That's a long time," Jack said.

"Yeah, it is. I've actually enjoyed working with you son," Tony said. "He's taught me a lot. He's like a father to me." Jack eyed Tony up and down and then handed him something.

"I guessed about a large," Jack said as Tony unfolded the sweater. "But you can only have it on one condition."

"What's that?" Tony asked as he tried the sweater on, seeing that it fit perfectly.

"You take that Israeli girl out on a date," Jack said. "She cares an awful lot about you, and I know you feel the same way. You need to tell her how you feel."

"Yeah, well," Tony began, but stopped when he saw the look on Jackson's face. "Okay, now I definitely know where that glare comes from," Tony muttered.

"You'll take her on a date?" Jack asked.

"I will," Tony promised.

"Hey Ziva," Tony yelled. "Want to go to the movies tomorrow?"
