Little White Card

A/N: don't be silly I don't own the show

Looking the four words on the card as if they would change if he concentrated enough he still could not work out their meaning and was left more confused than when he had picked up the card five minutes ago. Not even Bishop understood the meaning, standing in the middle of their little section of the bullpen a voice he was not hoping to hear while he had the card in his hands called out to him, "hey McGoo got a little love note do ya? I don't think I've ever seen you look so confused." McGee knew the smug smile would be plastered on the senior agents face before he had even turned around.

McGee knew Tony hadn't been taking it well since his partner had left, none of them really had but Tony just hadn't been himself at all so McGee had let the McNicknames slide, it was hard seeing Tony look up to Bishop's desk and go to call to Ziva, McGee knew that in Tony's mind that the new agents desk was still Ziva's and that wasn't going to change anytime soon, tony had still yet to even call Ellie his partner or even McGee's partner for that matter. So as he turned around he pooled all his resolve into stay calm with Tony he answered with "actually Tony this was on your desk but it's weird it doesn't say who it's from."

"Well McGee what does it say?" came Tony's snide reply as he walked to McGee and snatched the card from his hand to read for himself. McGee watched as his sometimes friend and the man he thought of as an older brother seemed to freeze stiller than a marble statue.

Tony looked at the card praying to every God out there that it was what he thought it was. The four words on the small white card stood out in black ink, he'd recognise that slightly girly swirly writing anywhere, how did McGee not? How could McGee be confused? Didn't he know that this is what Tony had been waiting for, for months now? The harsh slap to the back of his head and the gruff voice saying "who'd you piss off this time DiNozzo?" Tony had learned to stop questioning his bosses sudden appearances long ago, even if they still made him jump every time. He still hadn't found his voice when he looked down at the writing again just as the elevator dinged an unusual arrival, probably dropping off a visitor for someone.

"Count to a million" it said, something in Tony snapped into place as he turned on his heels and rushed out of the cubicle the team following behind just in time to see Tony swing into his arms a tiny beautiful brunette into his arms and hold on tight as the whole floor it seemed erupted into applause for the couple.

As Tony swung the woman around in a circle and set her down to kiss her McGee caught a look at her face and from the gasp and scent of gunpowder and daisies in the air McGee knew Abby had arrived, probably to drop off evidence on the case they were supposed to be working on he knew she had recognised the woman as well. Ziva was home.

Touching her feet to the ground and swooping down to give her a kiss Tony tightened his arms around the beautiful vision before him. He hoped to God he wasn't dreaming and somehow he knew he wasn't, in his dreams she never did smell right and right now she smelled perfect. Dropping another peck to Ziva's lips he rested his forehead against hers as he had once at the edge of the woods what seemed forever ago. He whispered softly to her "are you home?" she replied in a voice just as soft, so as not to break the bubble they found themselves in "if there is still a home for me…" tightening his arms a fraction in indication he whispered "right here you'll always have a home". With a sniff Ziva answered in a voice softly breaking "do not let me go Tony, please do not let me go I do not want to be gone anymore", "never again baby" he replied just before the pair were hit with a wall strong enough to topple their tight embrace.

Regaining their balance Tony realised it wasn't a 'what' that had hit them but a 'who'. Abby must have come up from the lab to give something to Gibbs or something. There was to force strong enough that could have stopped her running over here the moment she had spotted her best friend Tony thought wryly as Ziva twisted to embrace the taller woman he heard his girlfriend (can he say that? Or well think that? Who cares he didn't he was going to call her that whether she liked it or not) giggle "I missed your hugs so much Abby, promise me I'll get at least one a day forever." With a hesitant smile in her voice the older woman replied "you'll have to stay here forever for that."

As Gibbs made his way over to kiss his girls on their heads and to pull his youngest into a one armed hug he heard Ziva murmur "I am home."
