I know

Work Text:

Tony is tall and tanned and he fills up the space between them with words because Ziva is here ... and Ziva does not know about them.

Eventually the euphoria of Gibbs’ presence bears a toll; his wide smile fades before being replaced by a hastily erected façade, all sharp angles and brittle edges.

He sounds so young. “I missed you, boss.”

I know … DiNozzo.” Gibbs answers his phone, shoulders his way past Tony's warm and solid mass and does not stop.

Later, while Ziva flirts with Ducky, Tony murmurs, “I gotta be Leia again?” and they share a secret smile.
