Thank you all so much for all the response to this story. It was originally only going to be a oneshot but it got a lot of response so I continued. I'm glad that so many of you enjoyed it. This is the last chapter and just a little of Tiva fluff, I think we all deserve it. Thank you so much :)


"Tony." Ziva called quietly through the apartment as she slipped through the door. She dropped her key onto the table in the living room and kicked off her shoes. Her toes sank into the carpet as she walked through the dimmly lit apartment. "Are you awake?"

"In here." Tony called and Ziva walked in the direction of the bedroom. She pushed open the door and leant against the frame. Tony was propped up in the bed, pillows behind his back. The duvet was covered with dvd cases, the credits of one rolling on the flat screen that was mounted on the wall. A copy of GSM sat open at an article beside his laptop.

"Did you not get out bed at all today?" She asked, amusement colouring her tone as she eyed the empty box of cereal that sat on the bedside table. Tony looked up at her and smirked.

"I am injured, give me a break."

Ziva snorted. "If you had forgotten I was also just recently discharged from the hospital." Tony rolled his eyes.

"I think my injury was a little bit more serious than your little fainting fiasco." Tony bantered back and Ziva laughed. She walked over to the bed and sat on the edge with a sigh. It was late and she was only just back from the navy yard.

"Which is why I'm already back at work." She muttered. Tony reached out and gripped her shoulders, slowly messaging them. Ziva let out an appreciative moan and relaxed back against his palms.

"Hard day at the office?" Tony asked and Ziva smiled again, letting her eyes slide closed.

"You could say." She murmured. "With you not there and Gibbs's determination not to have a replacement the work is piling up. McGee has hacked into so many computers today I am not sure that there are many left. Abby is even helping out with the paperwork." Tony chuckled and let Ziva fall back so she was resting against his chest.

"Well, it'll be only a few more days until I'm back." He sighed sadly. "But to be fair I was getting a little bored being bed bound." Ziva laughed and put more pressure against his chest. Tony tried to disguise the hiss of pain as she put pressure onto his still painful chest. Ziva sat up immediately and he gave her a look to tell her that it wasn't as bad as she was making it out to be.

"You know that you don't really have to be in bed all the time anymore." She told him and disappeared into the ensuite, returning with the bottle of pills he was still taking. She handed them to him and he nodded at her in response. Smiling he unscrewed the bottle and shook one of the pills onto his palm. He swallowed it dry and Ziva rose her eyebrows.

"Will I make you dinner?" Ziva asked as she pulled off her jacket and threw it over the chair in the corner.

"Make me dinner?" Tony laughed and she rolled her eyes.

"Order a pizza?" She asked sarcastically and he chuckled.

"No." He shook his head and reached out, grabbing her wrist with his hands. Her skin was warm and soft under his fingers and he smiled at the jolts of electricity running up his spine. "I have better things in mind."

Ziva smiled down at him as he rolled out of bed, only wincing slightly as the still tender wound rejected the action. He pulled her closer to him and finally kissed her. She smiled into his lips as his arms pulled her to his chest, his hand wrapping in her hair. He kissed her harder and she let her body curl around his. She laughed as his free hand reached up and undid the bottom button of her blouse.

"Tony." She murmured against his lips.

"Yes Ziva." Tony grinned slyly as she pulled back a little.

"The doctor told you not to over exert yourself." She told him as he pushed her back onto the bed. She laughed as he pushed her onto the mattress and leaned over her, pressing kisses into her jaw and neck.

"That didn't stop you last night." He reminded her and her laugh came out in a throaty chuckle. Tony swallowed a moan and kissed her again. Her hands slowly ran up his back and under the t-shirt he was wearing.

"I suppose it didn't." She murmured softly and pulled him down into another kiss. Tony grinned and let her slowly undress him.
