Summary: On the sixth day of Christmas, six near misses occurred while working a case.

01 | 02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 | 09 | 10 | 11 | 12

The last twenty-four hours had been taxing to say the least. His interrupted dream had been given no chance for a reprise because he hadn't been back to sleep. They were no closer to finding the killer (or killers as Abby swore there were more than one) of the five Marines and Gibbs' demeanor was worsening with each passing minute.

Tony rubbed a hand over his weary eyes as he tried to focus on the computer monitor. Instead, his mind drifted back to the dream that Gibbs had interrupted. He had wondered the entire day if Gibbs had known what he was dreaming or had noticed the hard on he had sported when he rolled off the air mattress. Something was 'off' between the two of them and Tony feared the worst.

Tony glanced to his right and saw that McGee was sound asleep with his face planted in his keyboard. Ziva was nowhere to be seen and Gibbs was off in search of more coffee judging by the stack of empty cups in the trashcan. Tony longed to go down to Abby's lab and curl up on the futon, but he knew he needed to keep working. He needed to solve this case so he could work on what was up with Gibbs.

Suddenly, all hell broke loose when McGee's computer started beeping at its loudest setting. McGee jumped to his feet, flinging items from his desk when he rose. Tony had a moment of shock before he successfully dodged the flying mouse that was sent his way.

Once things had settled, they were able to sort out the lead they suddenly had. Gear, guns and badges were grabbed, Ziva was called and told to 'get her ass there now' and then Tony found himself holding on for dear life as Gibbs drove like a mad man.

In route to the address the searches had turned up, they almost wrecked three times. After each near miss, Tony crossed himself reflectively.

A squeal of tires brought them to a stop in front of an abandoned warehouse and Tony heard another squeal as Ziva slid her car in next to them. Silence descended as they proceeded to the building with guns drawn.

The next thirty minutes was a blaze of gunfire as they were surprised by not one, but five men. Using the copious amounts of cover the warehouse provided, Tony had managed to work his way close to Gibbs' position. It was then that he saw the movement out of the corner of his eye. One of the men had Gibbs in his sights and Tony was not about to let Gibbs get hit.

He lunged forward and he could hear the sounds of bullets and Gibbs' voice over the din shouting his name…

"That was way to close, Tony," Abby said as she fingered the tear in Tony's Prada coat. "This could have been your arm."

"Better than Gibbs' head," Tony said sullenly. "Of course, it's not like the man can say thank you."

"He says thank you to you all the time. You just aren't listening hard enough."

Before Tony could respond, Gibbs stormed into the lab, signed something to Abby who scampered off and then turned toward Tony.

"I'm not buying you a new coat, DiNozzo. Unless you want one from Sears."

Then Gibbs reached forward to deliver a head slap and Tony ducked his head in anticipation. However, he was shocked when the slap never came. Instead he felt Gibbs' hand lightly brush the back of his head.

"You promised you wouldn't die, DiNozzo. Remember that?"

01 | 02 | 03 | 04 | 05 | 06 | 07 | 08 | 09 | 10 | 11 | 12

Note: Tony may have had near misses, but I got a call from my mom while I was working on this and a deer hit their van tonight... My parents are okay, but the passenger side door was done in and it hit where my mom already had a sore arm. So hopefully that won't get worse.

Oh my gosh! I hope your mom's arm is okay!!! Glad things seem to be relatively minor there.

I loved this installment, especially the head touch at the end.

Yeah... they should be okay. Her shoulder has been messed up for awhile and it was the arm by the door that's messed up. She said it hit against her elbow when the door banged in from the deer. Darn suicidal deer around us. Driving from where I am to their house is like a 45 minute war zone trip. One needs a tank.

Sorry to hear about your mom! I hope she and your dad are okay!

I love these, looking forward to the next installments! It should end on the 6th Jan, which is also my birthday :D

Thanks! And yay for getting 1,200 words on your birthday!

Life imitating art, huh? Yikes, I'm just relieved to hear nothing really bad happened and your parents are okay.

And I'm glad Tony's okay as well! *pets Tony*

Abby is sooo right. Gibbs does say thank you, in his own way. And I always thought Tony had mastered Gibbs Speak by now...

BTW, the scene with McGee waking up and flinging stuff everywhere? Could've been sooo taken from the actual show! *sporfle* I wish they'd do something like that in an upcoming ep sometime. *gigglesnort*

Gibbs does thank you... you just gotta listen really hard. Tony has most of the Gibbs speak down, he's just behind on a few of the tricky aspects of the language. ;-)

I love the idea of McGee flinging things. :-)

Trust the parents are OK and not too roughed up after their eventful drive.
Loved these first 6 instalments. Tony's dream was so like a dream any of us could have. I can sympathesise with the air mattress it's no joke. Once had to spend 20 days on a 90cm wide shared with my GS I had at the time, who wouldn't sleep on the floor even in summer!! Boy, did I have a sore back at the end of those 20 days!!

Thanks! Air mattresses are no fun... *hugs Tony for suffering on one*

Yeah... Interruptions are not good...
Dec. 31st, 2009 11:39 am (UTC)
I'm enjoying this series a lot. :-)

Sorry about parents hitting a deer. I've been lucky to have never hit one. Which given that I live in PA, a state rife with deer, and the miles I drive, that's pretty damned amazing.
Jan. 1st, 2010 06:08 am (UTC)
Thanks on the liking!

I've been in the passenger seat when one ran into my brother years ago on the 4th of July. Then back around 2001-2002, I hit one head on going about 55mph. Not fun.

I think deer might just be suicidal. Seriously.
Dec. 31st, 2009 02:16 pm (UTC)
Oh these still go by so quickly... at least on MY birthday there will be 1000! (And I will also be 1,000 I think...)

Flying mouses! (grin) Must have been a wireless....
Jan. 1st, 2010 06:12 am (UTC)
Yay for 1,000 words, not for 1,000 in age.

Hee! Flying meece! McGee's likely to have a wireless. Of course a USB cord can pull out easily on some computers...
Dec. 31st, 2009 07:26 pm (UTC)
So very much loving this series! Just found it and WOW.

Glad to hear your fam is okay. My mom and my best friend both got into deer collisions last year, so I can sympathise. Could have been alot worse!

Looking forward to the next part!
Jan. 1st, 2010 06:13 am (UTC)
Thanks! And that icon is cute...
Dec. 31st, 2009 08:08 pm (UTC)
Glad your parents are okay, it must have been a shock for them though!
This was another fantastic chapter, loved the moment at the end between Tony and Gibbs and looking forward to the next chapter.
Happy New Year, may the muse inspire and cooperate all the way!
Jan. 1st, 2010 06:13 am (UTC)
Happy New Year back!

So far, so good with the muse. Just five more to go.
Jan. 1st, 2010 03:02 am (UTC)

Yikes about your parents! I'm so glad they're okay. I live in NJ and have been hit twice by deer. Heading to work today, two ran between the vehicles in front of us. Suicidal does seem to fit!

Love heroic!Tony refusing to let anything happen to his Gibbs. *grin* And that he could hear Jethro yelling even if he wasn't quite processing what might have been said, beyond his name.

But the head-touch. *gauuughhh* I love LOVE the canon scene where Gibbs pets Tony even if he was (supposedly) being sarcastic about it. I'm just as taken when I see fics with that theme.

And Gibbs' last line? Yeah. Tony would do well to remember that he does NOT have permission to die.

Loving this series!
Jan. 1st, 2010 06:15 am (UTC)
Deer are definitly suicidal. It's like a warzone over here. I counted 10 on the drive to my parents this evening...

Glad you are enjoying the entire thing! I love any of the petting scenes with Gibbs and Tony. They play it so well.
