"What?" Ziva looked up to see a small clump of… leaves? Hanging from Abby's ceiling. She turned to Tony, who was grinning widely.
"You know, Mistletoe," Was it just Ziva, or had Abby suddenly become more cheerful? "It's an American tradition that when two people get trapped under the plant, they have to kiss! It's very popular during Christmas time!"
"But that doesn't make sense!" Ziva was bewildered by the strange turn of events. A plant you kissed under? Americans and their weird traditions, she sighed.
"Aw, just do it for traditions sake, wontcha?" I knew putting up Mistletoe this year was a good idea. Despite what happened when the Director and Ducky were under it last year…. Abby thought to herself gleefully, funny, it seems Ducky has never come back up since…
"I….I…I don't even celebrate Christmas!" Ziva threw up her hands, exasperated at Tony for not helping.
"You!" She pointed at him accusingly, "Lend me a foot here, won't you? It's not like you want to kiss me!"
"It's lend me a hand, Zeevah," Tony said lazily, "And so what if I do?"
"You do…?" Ziva was surprised, this was not the response thought she would get.
"Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!" Abby whisper-cheered, her pigtails bobbing up and down.
Ziva turned away from Tony, blushing as she felt the heat of his gaze. She cursed American traditions yet again and tried not to let her eyes wander back to his devilishly handsome grin.
Suddenly, she felt a hand at her waist and it took all her restraint not to flip Tony over. He spun her around to face him, and smirked at her reddened face.
What happened next, Ziva never knew, all of a sudden his lips were on hers, and she anticipated the sensation, slowly kissing back. Savouring the sweetness of his kiss, she was disappointed when he pulled away.
"Don't enjoy it too much, Zee!" Tony chortled, pleased at her reaction. He himself had enjoyed it too, but he'd never admit that to anyone.
"In your dreams, you pig!" Ziva swatted at him playfully, but her eyes were unable to meet his hazel ones.
"Hey guys?" Ziva had never been so happy in her life to hear Mcgee's voice, "We're all about to go watch TV, coming?"
"Sure," She choked out as she strolled out the living room, Tony following closely after,, both pretending like nothing happened.
Abby smiled secretly to herself, knowing she had given her friends the best gift ever this Christmas.
