Shea Butter Isn't All That Innocent

By: Sammy Jo

Chapter One-Ocean & Shea Butter

She was back from Miami and Tony couldn't have been happier. She strutted into the squad room with a cream colored straw hat and sported a blue top with white pants. She was smiling and quite tan. Tony was pleasantly surprised to see Ziva tan even though he was jealous that Ziva had been sent to Miami while he was left alone at base.

"Hello Tony!" She chimed cheerfully. "I'm back!"

Her voice rang so vividly in his ears and he detected her happiness.

"Well, hello, little miss Sunshine State and don't you look balmy." He observed, a phone going off in the background as his voice hinted at his passive-aggressiveness.

"I do not know what balmy means but I will assume it is not good." She said as she took off her hat and pulled out her chair in preparation to sit.

"Well, just because I was alone manning the fort handling Gibbs solo while you have been strolling around south beach dancing to the rhythm of night why would I feel the need to say anything negative?" He asked with a laugh as Ziva sat in her seat.

"Because you are you." She pointed out. "Besides, I was working the entire time."


She listened as he scoffed. She then knew he obviously found a flaw in her statement. She had to know what it was exactly that had been flawed.

"Ha what?" She asked quizzically, wonder tingeing her voice as her eyebrows furrowed together in confusion.

"Working." He mockingly said.

He reached back for a file from an open file cabinet.

"Are those tan lines?" He asked in a voice that for some reason irritated Ziva.

She looked down at her shoulder then back up at Tony.

"Where do you think you are looking?"

"Does it even matter?" He retorted.

"Well actually, yes it does." She said as she blinked.

She leaned forward onto her desk, moving subtly closer to Tony.

"And I can assure you that I have no tan lines." She said, scrunching her nose for only a second as she said tan lines.

Suddenly a look of fascination came to Tony's face which caused his eyes to widen.

"So you did lie in the sun?"

"Yes I did, actually." She said as she stood from her chair.

She traversed towards Tony as she spoke.

"This morning before my flight and I came up with something case related prior to my departure."

She leaned herself against his desk with her hands and grew confused when Tony sniffed at the air. She found this behavior odd even for Tony. His eyes were closed as he became mesmerized by the enchanting scent that was on the Israeli agent.

"You smell like ocean and Shea butter." He observed.

He looked into her eyes and as their orbs connected for that split second she grew even more confused.

"A local dead county informant said that a Mexican drug shipment recently came in by boat. A deal closed by Reynosa family and Alejandro Rivera even paid a political visit to the mayor." She informed her partner.

"The Wonder Twins have been busy." Tony remarked.

"The Wonder who?" Ziva asked; confused as to who or what Tony was referencing.

"The Wonder Twins; TV superheroes, brother and sister. When they touch their rings they activate in the form of waterfall, shape of a dinosaur, that kind of thing." Tony said, his explanation losing its' momentum as it digressed.

She shook her head slightly, confusion still overwhelming her.

"Okay? What do you think they were up to?" She asked.

"Maybe they were following on business before pleasure?" He hypothesized to her.

"Is killing Gibbs' father business or pleasure?" She asked.

"Both." He said, looking at her.

Soon they were able to wrap up the Reynosa cartel case and Tony was able to go home. When he got to his apartment he dropped his bag to the floor and plopped down on his couch. He was not there for long because only moments later there was a knock on the door. He stood up and walked tiredly over to his door. He gripped onto the doorknob and opened the door. He instantly perked up at the beautiful sight in front of him.

"Ziva!" He exclaimed happily.

"Tony. May I come in?" She asked, holding one hand near her back.

"Uh…sure; come in." He said, gesturing his arm inside his humble abode.

He then noticed that hand was occupied by a royal blue bag. It was small and it appeared to be one of those gift shop bags. He narrowed his gaze at it curiously and watched as Ziva stood a foot away from the couch.

"What do you got there, Ziva?" He asked; pointing to the bag.

She looked to the bag and lifted it up in reaction to his acknowledgment.

"Oh! It's a…surprise." She said slyly.

"And what kind of surprise is this?" He asked, wanting so bad for it to be for him. "A gift from Miami?"

"Wouldn't you like to know?" She teased with a cheeky smile.

"Ziva, you are being quite a…cheeky little ninja." He said as he approached her.

"Yes I am." She agreed, yanking the bag away from Tony's potential grasp.

"So, uh, when exactly do I get my surprise?" He asked, practically begging for her to stop taunting him.

"Now, I suppose."

She could tell this pleased him and she removed a large bottle of what appeared to be some kind of lotion from the bag. Tony watched as she bent over to place the bag on his coffee table. For a brief moment he could see down her shirt at those perfectly rounded breasts. He licked his lips slightly at the temptation of having sex with Ziva. He shook himself out of his internal fantasy and looked over at Ziva.

"Okay, I noticed how…intrigued you seemed to be by the way I smelled so I brought the source." She said, flipping the bottle around to reveal that it was in fact a large bottle of Shea butter.

"That's a…big bottle." He observed, taking one large step towards her.

"Well, it could be a long night." She informed, obviously trying to imply something.

He narrowed his eyes at her, catching on to her implication. He wondered what she meant by that. He wondered what she was up to.

"What are you trying to say?" He asked, now standing only a few inches from her.

"Oh, well, I think you are well aware of that, Tony." She said, seduction so clear in her voice that it somewhat scared Tony.

He watched as she wrapped one arm around his neck and pulled his down to her. He then felt her press his lips to hers in a tender kiss.
