Tony peered around the corner of the bathroom and smiled at his very pissed boss. Gibbs walked up to him and pushed him back against the wall hidden by the corner, then took a step back, looking at Tony.
"What's up, boss?"
Gibbs glared at Tony and crossed his arms over his chest. Tony knew that stance well; Gibbs was mad, really mad.
Tony took a step closer, trying to close the gap between them, and
Gibbs took a step back.
"Jethro... what's wrong?"
Gibbs smiled when Tony groaned-he loved it when Tony got frustrated-but his lips soon went back to their straight line.
"I know where you went this morning."
"Of course you do... I came here."
Gibbs shook his head and took another step back; Tony finally got the message and leaned back against the wall.
The smile on Tony's face disappeared and a look of confusion replaced it. He thought hard; obviously, he had forgotten something, and it was something important.
"What do you mean?"
He was trying to get all the information he could out of the man who stood in front of him. He had to remember.
"You went upstairs."
Tony sighed and then, mere seconds after, stood rigid, the memory of his conversation with his old friend on the elevator rushing back to him. His back no longer touched the wall and his eyes were frozen on the opposite wall. His smile disappeared, and he slowly found Gibbs' eyes again.
"No. Jethro…" Tony's arms flailed, he couldn't stand still now. "No, we
didn't. We just talked. I swear." Tony started to take a step towards Gibbs and decided against it ,walking around him instead. "We talked, Jethro! Nothing more. I swear." Tony was rambling, the words spilling out of his mouth as if there was no time to waste. "Jethro, you've got to believe me. We just *talked*. I would never do that, not now." He stopped pacing, took a step towards Gibbs and relaxed a little when he didn't step away. "I have you, I don't need anyone else."
Gibbs relaxed his arms a little but still had them wrapped around his waist. Tony dropped his own arms and took another step forward. Gibbs smiled for a second; he was losing his control, and Tony saw it.
"You knew that already though... didn't you?"
Gibbs smiled and took a step toward Tony. Now they were only a couple inches apart.
"Of course, Tony."
Tony shook his head in amusement and placed his hands on Gibbs' hips, Gibbs, in turn, placed his on Tony's arms.
"You're so cute when you get all frustrated."
Gibbs leaned in and kissed Tony, a soft kiss to show him how much he loved him. When he leaned back to look at Tony he smiled at the sight. Finally Tony opened his eyes, feeling Jethro's gaze, and smiled.
"You bastard." Tony said in a mocking voice.
"You know it."
Gibbs kissed Tony again before pulling out of his grip and heading back into the office.
"Ass." Tony finished under his breath. "I'll get you for that." He had a smile on his face as he walked out the bathroom door with the perfect plan for vengeance in mind.
