Tiva ficlet: "Poker Face"  



Title: Poker Face
Rating: R
Summary: He wonders how much longer he can keep doing this
A/N: I had the first two lines of this in my head since yesterday afternoon. They wouldn't leave me alone until I wrote this. Hope it is acceptable.


Ziva David has an impeccable poker face. Tony knows this. And although they have never played poker together, he has been trying to call Ziva's bluff for years.

Today is like any other day, and he's still trying to crack the code on her poker face. He's pushing her again. He actually followed her into the women's restroom and locked the door. Has her pushed up against the sink, their faces so close he can smell the jasmine tea on her breath. As he watches her face, and the storm of emotions passing through her eyes, he wonders how much longer he can keep doing this. He'd told her years ago; he's tired of pretending. She'd said that she was too, but he's never been convinced that she really understood what he was talking about.

He's still lost in thought when he notices out of the corner of his eye that her body language is shifting. Ziva's pressing herself into him now, and he can feel the heat of her all around him. In the next second she snaps, and her lips are fused to his before he's even noticed her movement. His world explodes around him and it's as if someone has just thrown a grenade at him. He knows he should run be he can't. He won't dammit, because this feels too much like everything he's ever wanted.

Not long after he's lifted her up, hands around her tiny waist, and placed her on the ledge of the sink. Not long after that he's got her slacks tugged down and her panties shoved to one side. And not very long after that indeed he has two fingers inside of her and she's moaning much louder than is probably appropriate for sex in the bathroom workplace, and all Tony can think is that if this is what the explosion looks like, he'll happily unpin the grenade any damn day of the week.

Since that was in their workplace, it doesn't count as "dating", right? :P

I've never read an NCIS fic before, but wow, did I love this. You really set a mood, and I could feel the intensity of their attraction. I also loved the grenade metaphor. You packed a lot into so few words.

Go you!

Wow thank you! I feel so special that you read it LOL. I'm so happy that you liked it.

The grenade metaphor was kind of the point of the fic. A friend created a community called no_safety_pin after reading a quote the writers wrote about Tony and Ziva. "It's like juggling a grenade while trying to put the pin back in" and the community is a challenge to write about Tony and Ziva's explosive relationship, so yeah.

Sorry for the long explanation. Thank you so much for reading/commenting.

Wow. Smokin'! And I especially liked this:

Wow! What a fantastic fic! You did such a great job of setting the mood and creating such a wonderful scene and with so few words! I especially LOVED the last line. Way to go, you! I do hope you feel compelled to write more.

THANK YOU! I'm really glad you think I set the mood well. With these two that's a big part of the whole thing. I'm still not sure if I'll be writing more but I've gotten so much great feedback I'll definitely consider it.

*Gulp*
I don't know what you were nervous about, because that was totally hot, haha. That was actually really good!

And I love that you can write with proper grammar and punctuation :P I love the grenade and explosion metaphors, too (yes, I'm aware of the no_safety_pin challenge). You used them very appropriately, and to good effect!
