Is This Love by:Gabbygirl115

So here is where I throw in the usual good stuff. I don't own any of the Characters and I make no money from this.

The song is by Whitesnake. It came on the radio on my way home and I couldn't resist.

As soon as he walked in the door, he had changed clothes and walked down to his basement. It took all that he had to go down there instead of what he wanted to do.

I should have known better
Than to let you go alone
It's times like these
I can't make it on my own
Wasted days, and sleepless nights
An' I can't wait to see you again

Abby had wanted him to go tonight to the new club, Ziva had needed the time with her friends. Gibbs knew that it was the female bonding time that she really needed. Something was up and she needed Abby. Gibbs had managed to communicate to Tony and McGee that they needed to have something else to do when Ziva asked and they immediately knew just by the look she had on her face. So he had let her go.

But it didn't stop him from missing his Abs. Usually by now, she would be immersed in some computer game while he worked in his basement for a while. But nights like this, he missed her. Just the knowing that she was upstairs was enough for him. When she was gone, he waited.

I find I spend my time
Waiting on your call
How can I tell you, babe
My back's against the wall
I need you by my side
To tell me it's alright
Cuz I don't think I can take anymore

Then there were nights like this when he for some reason needed her to take it all away. The thoughts, the memories would flood him and overwhelm him. But with Abby, she managed to keep them at bay.

Is this love that I'm feeling
Is this the love that I've been searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming
This must be love
Cuz it's really got a hold on me
A hold on me

It hit him like a sledge hammer, he swore when he buried Shannon and Kelly that he would never love again. But he remembered the times that he had said it in the lab when Abby gave him a crucial piece of information.

He realized just how much that he meant it. He took the stairs two at a time.

I can't stop the feeling
I've been this way before
But, with you I've found the key
To open any door
I can feel my love for you
Growing stronger day by day
An' I can't wait to see you again
So I can hold you in my arms

He went to their room to change clothes. He smiled to himself as he got dressed. As he was running out the door he stopped. He walked over to the mantel and saw the note with his father's scribbly handwriting.

Inside was the ring that his father had given his mother when they married. Gibbs smiled.

Is this love that I'm feeling
Is this the love that I've been searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming
This must be love
Cuz it's really got a hold on me
A hold on me

He heard the door open and he turned around just as she was coming in. He stopped and stared at her. His Abby. He walked over to her and planted a soft kiss on her lips.

"I missed you." He told her.

"Gibbs" She said with

Is this love that I'm feeling
Is this the love that I've been searching for
Is this love or am I dreaming

"Gibbs." Abby said as she shook his shoulder.

Gibbs woke up with a start and realized he was still at work.

"You fell asleep again."

Gibbs looked up at her.

"Sorry, Major Mass Spec is still running. I think it will be the morning before he gives me results."

Gibbs stood up. "Let's go home Abs."

That was when he felt something in his hand. He opened his palm and saw the ring.

"Gibbs?" Abby said as she turned around.

"Coming Abs."

He just smiled. Tonight he would show her how much he loved her. And he would make sure he said the words.
