McGee was sitting at his desk, a small frown creasing his brow as he came up against yet another fire wall. The FBI were getting smarter at this.
Footsteps sounded near him, but he ignored them. It was probably just Tony looking for something else to amuse himself with.
Arms snaked around his shoulders.
Ok, not Tony.
McGee turned his head, and saw a familiar pale face close to his own.
"Hey Abs," he said.
"Hey Timmy. Trying to crack the FBI database again?"
"I think they're getting smarter," McGee said, smirking. "They even thought to put up an extra fire wall."
Arms still around his shoulders, Abby peered at the screen.
"Looks like a pretty flimsy one to me," she observed.
"Yeah, I was just getting around it."
"Can it wait for a second?" Abby asked.
McGee's eyebrow went up.
"Sure, Abby. What is it?"
Abby relinquished his shoulders, and came to sit on the edge of his desk. McGee got up, and stood beside her.
Abby's arms went around him, and she hugged him tightly. McGee hugged back, relishing in the feeling of her closeness. The prospect of Abby's famous hugs was enough to get him through the worst of days.
Abby let go a little, still keeping her arms around him, and gently kissed him.
"What was that for?" he asked.
"For believing in me. For trying to defend me even though you thought I was the mole."
McGee shook his head.
"I never thought you were the mole, Abby. I knew you couldn't be."
"Well thank you anyways," she said. "It nearly killed me when I couldn't tell you, Timmy. I hate keeping secrets from you."
McGee's smile grew bigger.
"It's just that Gibbs made me promise," Abby continued. "He made me promise to not tell you specifically. I wanted to so much, especially when you guessed stuff in my lab."
Abby let go of him, and perched on the edge of his desk again.
McGee sighed softly. He hated letting her go, but he knew that Abby couldn't be caged long; if she thought you were going to, she spooked.
"I was really scared that they thought it was you, Abs," he said, sitting beside her.
Abby bit her lip.
"I know. You were so cute, all stern and earnest with me, saying you would help but I needed to talk to you."
"You're eccentric, Abby, but you would never betray Gibbs. I know that."
"I would never betray you either," Abby said, putting her head on his shoulder.
"I know," McGee said simply.
They sat in silence for a minute.
Abby lifted her head, and kissed his cheek.
"Thank you, Tim," she whispered.
Then, she lifted her arm, and punched him in the shoulder. Hard.
"Ow!" McGee objected. "What was that for!?"
"For saying I am eccentric," Abby replied, hopping off his desk. "Now, let's see what the FBI think they can stop us with." She sat herself confidently down in his chair.
McGee snagged Tony's chair and came to sit beside her, a small smile tugging at his lips.
Author's Note: Just a random idea that popped into my head after the little McAbby moment in 'Cloak'. The interrogation scene between Abby and McGee is lovely, especially when he finds out that she's innocent, and he leans over and kisses her. So cute!
