Gibbs is having nightmares about the 'failures' in his life. Failure to protect Shannon and Kelly. Failure to save Kate, Jenny, even Mike. He normally wakes up alone from these nightmares, until one night when he was woken by Tony.

Gibbs jolted awake on the couch and scrubbed a calloused hand down his face. Everyone said that time healed, but to him, it was only making it worse. Much, much worse.

Every night it was like a parade through his nightmares. Shannon and Kelly, Kate, Jenny, Mike and all the countless he couldn't keep from death. But even worse was the nights when those still living graced his dreams, presenting him countless what-if scenarios of if what could have happened.

No, time wasn't making it better, it was just making it worse.

A week later...

Tony jolted awake when he heard a muffled cry coming from the living room. He rolled out of the guest bed and grabbed his gun from the nightstand.

When he reached the living room, he was greeted by the site of Gibbs thrashing on the couch, bathed in the street light filtering through the window.

"Boss?" he said softly as he knelt on the floor near the man. "Wake up, it's just a dream."

Suddenly blue eyes were looking at him with an glint that Tony had never seen from Gibbs.

"Boss?" he questioned again. "You were dreaming. Just a nightmare."

"Tony?" Gibbs' voice was rough. Then Tony gasped as the older man grabbed him and pulled him on the couch.

"Not letting you die, Tony. You got it."

"Got it, Boss," Tony said reassuringly around his confusion. "Not gonna die. Let's go back to sleep."

And they did just that, the nightmares never gracing Gibbs' dreams again.

I really like this - I can totally see poor Tony's confused face!

Yeah... a sleepy, nightmare awoken Gibbs makes for a confused Tony. But they'll work it out in the end. And hopefully a bed, because the couch is kinda small ;)
