Summary: The first time McGee walked uninvited into Gibbs' house was also the last...
Location: Abby's Lab
"Timmy! What happened?! Someone didn't die? You CAN'T come in here and tell me someone died! No one is allowed to die. Not you. Not Gibbs. Not Tony-- It's not Tony is it? He's already used up his nine lives. Tony can't--"
"It's Tony..." McGee managed to mutter as he continued rocking back and forth on the floor with his hands wrapped around his chest in a protective self-hug. He looked up startled when he felt the sting of Abby's palm connect with his cheek.
Tears were welling up in Abby's eyes as she spoke loudly, "Tony can't be dead. Tony doesn't die. He walks in and everything is okay. Ducky will tell us it's not him. No scarred lungs. No. Tony's not dead."
"And Gibbs..." McGee sputtered out, unable to say anything else. "Tony and Gibbs. Tony and Gibbs."
Abby froze and felt as if the world out just dropped out from underneath her. "No. No. No. No. No."
"Found him Boss!" the shouted voice broke through Abby's mantra and her teary eyes snapped up and focused one very much alive Anthony DiNozzo standing in the doorway.
"You're alive!!" she shouted as she flung herself at him at full speed. He staggered back under her weight. "I knew you couldn't die. You're an Energizer bunny. You just keep going and going. Gibbs! McGee said Gibbs was dead too! Where's Gibbs?"
"Dead?" Tony questioned as Gibbs came up behind him. "Why did McGee say Gibbs was dead?"
Three sets of eyes turned to McGee who was still in the corner repeating, "Tony and Gibbs," over and over.
Tony turned to Gibbs, who returned the look with a raised eyebrow. Abby gave quick glances between the two and then back at McGee, her mind whirring at high speed.
"Tony and Gibbs what?" she asked the rocking McGee.
"Naked. Tony and Gibbs naked," McGee said as he turned haunted eyes up to look at the men smirking at him.
"Rule 28 McGee; always knock," Gibbs said as he marched from the room, leaving a quiet McGee, a stunned Abby and a laughing DiNozzo behind.
Note: This little story was born as a comment fic in spoonyriffic's story Unexpected Is One Word For It. tejas and I were discussing other ways things could go wrong for Gibbs and Tony and we figured someone could just walk in on them because Gibbs' door is always open. The section of comments we discussed this on is here.
