My Aunt posted this on Facebook, and then an idea came to me! I hope you enjoy it!
Anthony DiNozzo had to admit, being a taken man had it’s advantages. Especially when he was taken by Ziva David.
But sometimes, man! Did it feel like there were more disadvantages. He could name so many reasons. Not being able to sleep in because Ziva was running. Or not being able to watch a good blow-em-up flick because his sweetheart wanted to watch a sappy romance movie. Yeah, he’d learned Ziva was a sucker for those ones. Especially when it included the words: shirtless and Gerard Butler.
Tony really disliked those five AM wakeups to go running. He ran with her though. Even if he ran slightly behind her. Something inside him drove him to run and protect her. There was no way he could bear to lose her after all they’ve been through together.
But, the main disadvantage for DiNozzo was the lack of blankets he got at night. Through September to June. It drove him insane. He’d wake up, and half his soft blanket would be dragging on the floor. The other draped lazily over Ziva’s body. Once he thought of stealing it back. However, after much debating Tony decided it would probably cost him either a limb or an eye.
Along with not having any blankets, Ziva liked to stretch out her feet and place them right onto Tony’s back. Those were the times he knew she was awake. Her feet were like little ice cubes against his back. Sometimes, he thought he would get hypothermia they were so damn cold. But he suffered through those cold nights in order to save his limbs.
One night, he couldn’t take it anymore.
“Psst! Ziva!” he hissed.
Ziva rolled over, freeing his back from the icicles, “Mmm?”
“Share the blankets, please?!” he begged now.
Ziva shot up in bed. She pulled the blankets closer around her body, “No! I am cold!”
“Please Ziva!” Tony protested, he searched for her in the dark and finally found the outline of her face, “I am cold! Your feet are like ice!”
“Go back to sleep, Tony,”
Tony huffed a sigh and fell back asleep. He awoke about an hour later… to find himself warm. Warm! He glanced down and found Ziva snuggled against him, with the blankets tucked around them.
Ahh. Now he could finally sleep.
