Hey guys, sorry its been so long, I've been really busy with school and my uni application. Thanks so much for the reviews this chapter picks up where last chapter ended…

"You have a stocking fetish don't you?" she asked him, her expression similar to the one she had worn when she'd twigged he wanted to have sex in his car.

"Men have a stocking fetish, Abs, I think it's ingrained,"

She laughed as he backed them into the bathroom, "You may be right, Tony-,"

"Abs, I don't wanna know if DiNozzo has a stocking fetish," he snapped, depositing her on the unit next to the sink.

A throat was cleared from behind them, "Uh, well, I do, boss,"

Gibbs twisted round so fast he thought he'd possibly done some damage to his neck. Tony was reclined in the bath, covered in bubbles, Kate leaning back against his chest, both of them trying not to laugh.

"What the HELL?"

00000

Gibbs stared at them intently, waiting for an answer.

"Well?" he barked.

"Jeth, calm down," Abby muttered, laying a hand on his arm, but he ignored her.

"EXPLAIN YOURSELF, DINOZZO!"

Tony squeezed Kate's hand in his, looked his boss in the eyes and cleared his throat, "Uh, I'm in love with Kate, boss, and uh, she loves me back. We're in love,"

Abby squealed, "Awwww, you guys!"

She then slipped off the counter, righted her dress and grabbed her irate lover's hand.

"C'mon Jeth, I thought you wanted…,"

He cut her off, glaring, "Abby, I have to deal with this!"

She snorted, "Deal with it how? What can you do without being a hypocrite, babe?"

He narrowed his eyes, yanked his hand out of her grip and stormed out of the bathroom, leaving her crestfallen.

There was a quiet pause, only to be broken by Tony.

"Don't think you're getting laid anytime soon, Abs," he said, chuckling.

Abby glared at him and gave him the middle finger, before hurrying after Gibbs.

Kate twisted in his arms to straddle him, and arched her right eyebrow, looking at him expectantly.

"What?" he asked, completely confused.

"Do YOU want to get laid anytime soon?"

He nodded eagerly and she had to smirk as she felt him against her inner thigh.

"Well, stop being a jack-ass to my best friend, comprende?"

He nodded and she bent down and kissed him, only to break the kiss and squeal as he surged up into her body, right to the hilt.

"Fuck, Kate," he muttered, against her neck.

"That was the general idea of the group bath, wasn't it?"

He chuckled as he lazily thrust into her. Who knew Kate had a secret dirty side?

Gibbs could hear Abby calling his name behind him as he stormed through the house and into the kitchen, heading for the back door. His father was cooking dinner, and turned, bewildered, at the sound of his angry approach.

"Son?"

He completely ignored him, and reached the back door, only to find it locked. He reached for the key hanging up next to it when Abby appeared in the kitchen doorway, tears streaming down her face. Jackson looked at her and then back to his son, glaring.

"You go out that door, Leroy, consider yourself banished from this house,"

Gibbs froze.

Abby gasped, "Jackson, no!"

"Yes, Abby. I've heard my boy has ruined many relationship by being a heartless bastard, but I've only ever seen him as happy as he is with you when he was with Shannon, and if he screws this up and hurts you, he can consider himself disowned,"

Tears were now flowing freely, leaving black mascara trails down her cheeks, and Gibbs' eyes locked on hers.

"Please don't leave, Jeth. I'd never forgive myself if I was the reason you and Jackson fell out again, please, come and talk to me! What did I do that upset you this much?"

Gibbs' eyes narrowed again. She didn't even know what she'd done wrong to upset him.

"What did you DO? Abigail, you COMPLETELY undermined MY authority in front of MY subordinates!"

"Jeth!"

"WHAT? What else would you call it?"

"They're not just you're subordinates, Jethro, they're your FRIENDS! And you're in no position to be angry about this, seeing as this is exactly what we did! At least Tony went about it the right way, he told her he loves her BEFORE he fucked her!" Abby practically screamed, furious herself.

"Yeah, well DiNozzo's fucking perfect, isn't he? This is it, isn't it? You've realized you made a mistake, you'd rather be with Tony!"

"NO! YOU NEED TO FORGET ABOUT ME AND TONY! IT WAS YEARS AGO, YOU JEALOUS BASTARD! I LOVE YOU, YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE!"

Their shouting match had brought Tony and Kate, wrapped in towels, and McGee to the doorway. Tony took one look at the tears streaming down her face and hurried over to her, hauling her into his arms.

"Abs? Baby, are you ok?"

She shook her head and then buried it in the crook of his neck.

"SEE! I'M NEVER GOING TO BE HIM!"

Abby exploded out of Tony arms across the room and launched herself at her lover. She grabbed his head with both hands and held on tight, forcing him to look at her.

"I DON'T WANT YOU TO BE HIM, YOU IDIOT! TONY AND I ARE JUST FRIENDS, AND HAVE BEEN FOR FOUR YEARS! HE'S IN LOVE WITH MY BEST FRIEND, AND I'M ECSTATIC FOR THEM, SO WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM?"

She stared at him, expectantly, and froze when she saw tears well up in his eyes. He suddenly surged forwards and crushed his lips to hers, kissing her deeply, before pulling back and resting his forehead against hers, his arms securing her to his body.

She stared back into his eyes, alarmed, as his tears spilled down his cheeks.

"You're right, God, you're so right. I'm sorry, baby, I'm so sorry,"

She sniffed, "Abby,"

His expression clouded with confusion, "Huh?"

"It's Abby, not God, humbled as I am,"

She saw the light come back on in his eyes.

"I love you, Abby, more than you could ever know,"

"You ready to stop being a complete and utter dinlo?"

"Uh, I'm not exactly sure what a dinlo is, but if it's anything like an idiot, then yes, I am,"

"Eh, it loosely translates to idiot… So, you're gonna actually believe Tony is in love with Kate and stop thinking that he and I want to get back together?"

"Yup."

"Promise?"

"Yes, Abs," he sighed, exasperatedly, "I promise,"

"Alrighty then, I suppose I forgive you, mister. You know I love you too, right?"

"Pretty sure I heard when you were screaming it at me," he replied, smirking, and she cuffed the back of his head before moving in for a kiss.

Tony turned at the sound of sniffing and was shocked to see the tears spilling out of his girlfriend's eyes.

"Kate?"

"It's so sweet, Tones!"

"Uh, yeah," he replied, starting to get uncomfortable as Gibbs' and Abby's kiss continued, becoming more passionate. Eventually they broke apart and Abby wiped the tears from her lover's cheeks, took his hand in hers and dragged him out of the room.

"Noooonerrrr," Tony muttered, under his breath.

There was a pause, and then Kate elbowed him in the ribs, hard.

"Um, OWW?"
