A/N: I thought that 'Silent Night' lacked a certain…Christmas decoration. Ducky would call it viscum album. At least from what I can find. You and me? Well we just call it mistletoe. I have to admit I was a little disappointed with the lack of Tiva. McAbby too. I loved Abby's Christmas party outfit. Anyone know where I could get one?
Disclaimer: I wish I owned NCIS. My friend (vamp926) and I both want Michael Weatherly in our stockings. Christmas stockings! Get your minds out of the gutter people! I know what you were thinking…
When the movie ended the team made their way out of MTAC. Abby and McGee took the elevator down to Abby's lab and Tony and Ziva made their way into the bullpen by the stairs.
"So Zee-vah." Tony began. She stopped at the entrance between their two desks.
"Yes Tony?" She looked up at him. Tony noticed that the way the light from the tree hit her made her look like an angel.
He mentally shook those thoughts from his head. "I was just wondering if you had anything planned for later." He gave her his famous 'DiNozzo smile'.
"It is Christmas Tony. I am Jewish. I was planning to curl up and read a book. Why?"
"It's nothing. I was just wondering if you'd like to come over to my apartment. I'll cook. We could watch another Christmas movie." He looked hopefully at her.
She sighed and looked around. "Oh." She whispered.
"What?" He asked.
She put her hand under his chin and gently pushed his head up.
There above them was a sprig of mistletoe.
"Oh." He whispered and then looked back down at her. "Do you know what this means?" He asked, trying to keep the smile out of his voice.
"I think so." She looked at him.
"Well would you like to break tradition," Their heads were already slowly making their way closer, "or would you like to…" But he was cut off when their lips finally met.
Sparks flew. That the only way they could both describe the kiss. When it finally ended, both were reluctant to pull away.
Ziva quickly gathered her things and was in front of the elevator by the time Tony had gained his senses again.
"Ziva?" He called as the elevator opened.
"I will be there." She gave him a quick smile and stepped into the elevator.
Tony stood there grinning until Abby and McGee came up.
"What's he smiling about?" McGee whispered to Abby.
She shrugged. "I don't know McGee."
McGee quickly grabbed his things and headed towards the elevator with Abby.
"Night Tony!" They called over their shoulders.
"Night Probie! Night Abs!" He stayed there for a while before finally grabbing his things and walking towards the elevator. Tomorrow was going to be a good day.
A/N: Just a little thing I came up with before the episode aired but was too tired to type up. I saw that 'miss royal highness' did a story called 'Mistletoe' too. I have not read that yet, so I can honestly say that this was an original idea of mine. Although I'm sure lots of people had thought of something like this as well. Please review! My birthday was two days ago (Sweet 16!), and I enjoy getting reviews!
Also, I now have LJ and my name is cable_addict there. Add me if you want!
Thanks for reading and please have a happy holidays! Be careful if you are traveling over break. The roads are super slick and to loose a fanfiction reader and/or author would be tragic for any of us. Only I could have an ulterior motive for that.
Heh. The authors notes are almost as long as the story.
