Disclaimer - I own nothing of NCIS...*sigh*..but maybe if I wish really hard......

Summary - Tony has been in Italy for two weeks attending his Great Uncles funeral and tending to his estate. And for two weeks Gibbs' gut has been churning. Tony has stayed in touch with Abby with the exception of one day...is he alright? What happened? But he does say he will be home in time for her Halloween party and is excited to hear that she convinced Gibbs to attend. So what is going on?



Tony was texting Jules furiously trying to fill her in on all that transpired and what he learned from his father.  As their conversation continued, McGee and Ziva entered the bull pen.


McGee felt that something had transpired but for once listened to the voice in his head and kept quiet and watched, feeling that that was the way to go for the moment.  The vibes that were flowing off Ziva since Tony and Gibbs’ announcement were anything but pleasant and he had the distinct feeling that somehow the atmosphere in the bull pen was related to her as well.


During this time, Tony was letting Jethro know what he and Jules were discussing and what Jules was telling him.  The council would meet at their house tonight and had advised that they bring McGee in very quickly.


Gibbs agreed, the sooner that he knew, the safer he would be.  It was becoming quite clear that Ziva and Senior intended to bring their plans to fruition.  Tony moved to his computer and began IM’ing Ducky and Abby filling them in with the briefest details and asking that they come over tonight.


Receiving their acceptance and knowing that they were prepared helped Tony relaxed a bit.  He felt Ziva’s eyes on him the whole time and made a point to continue to ignore her.  There was too much to be lost by showing his hand too soon and far too many details that he needed and wanted to know.


Tony was trying to get the wording in an email to McGee just right when he decided that they needed to talk.  Hearing Jethro agree he looked up at McGee.


“Probilicious, want to go get lunch for everyone?  My treat?”


Sensing there was more to this than a simple lunch run, he looked at Tony and played along.  “You…treating?  What are you sick?  Should I be worried?”


“Nope.  Just feeling generous today.  If you don’t want to take advantage…well.”


McGee laughed.  “I’ll take advantage; after all it is such a rare occasion.”  Grinning at Tony, he grabbed his coat.  Ziva started to rise and McGee stopped her.  “No need Ziva.  Tony and I can manage.  We’ll bring food back for you and Gibbs.”


Ziva narrowed her eyes.  “I do not know what I wish to eat, how will you pick for me?”


“Same as we always do when one of us does a lunch run.  We get the regular.  Besides, it’s free, if you don’t like it, don’t eat it.  We’ll be back.”  McGee was doing his best to keep his mounting irritation at bay.  He looked over at Gibbs.  “We’ll pick up something for Duck, Jimmy, and Abby too.”


Tony tried to look affronted.  “What the hell?  Do I look like I am made of money?”


Gibbs smirked.  “Actually, yes.  What designer is that suit Tony?”


Tony laughed.  “Point taken.  Come on McGee let’s go and feed the masses.”  Sending a smile over to Jethro with some warm thoughts as well as a warning to be careful he turned and headed for the elevator with McGee following right behind.


As they exited the elevator and reached Tony’s car he finally spoke.


“I hope that it was alright that I kept Ziva from going.  I just felt for some reason that you wanted to talk to me.”


“Thanks Tim.  I appreciate you having my back and you’re right.  I do want to talk to you.  I also want to know if you can come by the house tonight.”  Tony tried to put it all into words.  “There is a great deal going on and I want you to be aware of everything.  There are a few things that I want and need to tell you.  Many things have changed since I have been back from Italy.”


Tim nodded.  “It seemed like it.  Are you ok?”


Tony smiled as they left the Navy yard.  “Yep.  Not bad changes, just big and not the usual garden variety.  And as I am sure you have noticed, some issues from Ziva.”


“That is an understatement.”


“There is a lot you’ll find out tonight and I need to know that you trust me.  This is huge Tim, Abby and Ducky will be there as well as four friends of mine.  And please don’t be offended that Abby and Ducky knew before you-“


“Tony, I’m not offended.  In fact, I understand.  Considering the bombshell you and Gibbs dropped yesterday and Ziva’s reaction, you needed to know where I stand.  It doesn’t take rocket science to figure that out.”


“And for the record, I trust you and Gibbs with my life and will back the two of you in any way that I can.  I’m not saying that whatever you have to tell me won’t surprise me, by the way you’re worried I can see that it’s big.  But I can deal and handle it.”


Tony smiled a real smile at Tim and relaxed.  “Thanks.  Really appreciate it.  I’m not really trying to be secretive, but you will understand.”


“I get it.  Ziva is a real threat though.  I don’t need the facts or the whole story to put that piece of the puzzle together.  She’s darker and filled with something that I can’t quite put my finger on.  It’s directed at you isn’t it Tony?”


“Yes.  She wants something very badly from me and unfortunately has joined forces with my father who as luck would have it, wants the very same thing.”


“I have yours and Gibbs’ back Tony, no matter what I find out tonight that is something you can count on.”  Tim wanted to make sure that Tony was assured of his loyalty. 


Tony placed his hand on McGee’s shoulder and squeezed it gently.  “Thanks Tim.  That means a great deal.”  Arriving at the restaurant, they went in and proceed to order.


Tim couldn’t help but say how he felt about Tony’s dad.  “I am really sorry that your dad is playing against you.”


Tony gave a small smile.  “I appreciate that.  It’s nothing new though.”  Tony sighed.  “I used to hope for a different outcome and every time he wanted to meet or get together I would get my hopes up.  Never ended well for me.  Most of the time there was a great deal of disappointment.  Over the years I have let those hopes go.”


“May seem harsh to some, but he hasn’t really been a father since before I was twelve.  It’s not that difficult to close yourself off.  Sure, this sucks.  I mean nobody wants their dad plotting against them, but as I see it, it’s not a surprise and considering what I know now, something I should have seen coming.”


Tim watched as Tony’s green eyes glowed with what he would describe as restrained power and control and knew for certain that he really wasn’t a man anyone would want to mess with.  Whatever the secret was, it was big, and life changing considering that Ziva and Senior were willing to work together.  No good was going to come from that alliance.


“But I have Jethro and many friends and some unexpected allies, of which I am glad that you are one.  They won’t succeed; never really had a chance to honestly.  But I want to make sure in the aftermath those I care about don’t get hurt in the crossfire.  That is unacceptable.”


Tony paid for and grabbed their food as they headed back to the car.


As they made their way back to the yard, both men were lost in their own thoughts.  Tim was trying to imagine what the big secret was, though he was pretty sure he wasn’t even close to being right.  All he knew was there was something about Tony that was different. 


Tony was simply trying to figure what Ziva and Senior’s next move was going to be and how to keep his friends and family safe.  He hoped tonight, together they might figure something out and plan for any eventuality.


As they pulled in the yard, Tony looked at Tim.  “Just be careful around Ziva.  I don’t want you hurt in their game.”


“No worries there Tony, I never have really trusted her so my keeping a safe distance is nothing new.”


Parking and grabbing the food.  “Good.  Tonight Tim.”  Tony gave him a nervous smile.  “Going to be a real eye opener.”


Tim chuckled.  “It’s you Tony, of that I have no doubt.”
