It started with him staying late one night. Abby had been doing some last minute tests on the case they were working on. She didn't give it much thought at first, too busy trying to get her results, and it's not like he never stayed behind before. It was either him or McGee. But when he asked, "You wanna get some dinner?" it kinda threw Abby for a loop. It's not like he'd ever asked her before, but usually he'd add 'with Ziva and McGee' to the end.

"You want to get dinner?" Abby asked slowly, meeting his green eyes.

"Yeah, if you don't mind," he responded smiling sheepishly.

"Uh, okay," she replied giving him a small smile in return.

"Great." He leaned against her lab, crossing his arms.

"You don't have to wait for me," Abby commented smiling wider, returning to her computer.

"Why not?" he asked shrugging. "It's either wait for you or sit at my desk, watching Gibbs do paperwork until he glares at me." Abby chuckled at that answer, shaking her head. It was another ten minutes before her computer beeped, the blood samples coming back as the victim's.

"Well, that doesn't help," he said reading the results over her shoulder.

"No, it doesn't," she agreed glumly. She sighed, slowly shutting down all her equipment.

"Want any help?"

"That's sweet, really, but you don't know anything about computers. I really don't want to have to reboot everything if you mess something up."

"Just thought I'd offer," he muttered backing away from Major Mass Spec. Abby smirked at his back, continuing to shut her stuff down. Once her babies were asleep for the night, Abby collected her bag and coat from her office, turning to face him.

"Ready to go?" she asked curiously walking past him.

"Yep," he said falling into step with her. "So, where do you want to go to eat?"

"I don't care. You pick."

"I know this place a few blocks from here. Has the best salads according to Ziva," he responded shrugging.

"That sounds great," Abby answered smiling.

"Great…" And that's how she went on her first date with Tony DiNozzo…


This is being published because I lost a bet with Benny. He is doing a happy dance as I write this.

I do not believe this couple is possible (that is my opinion please do not get mad because I stated it), I think they are more brother and sister, but as I said I lost. And this was the prize for the loser.

However, as much as I don't believe in this couple, I will put my best foot forward and try my hardest to get them down pact.

As the story goes on their relationship will grow, and perhaps I will add some McGiva for the hell of it (I can see this couple if I spin in a circle and squint).

So, yeah, I own nothing, drop a review if you can, and I'll see ya in the next chapter.
