Mistletoe - Tiva drabble advent calendar Day 11
It was their first weekend off after a particular hard case and Tony and Ziva had decided on spending it wandering around D.C even though the snow was already settling on the streets since it was almost Christmas.
Coming to stop in front of a winterly decorated window of a shop Tony spoke up.
"I know you don’t really celebrate Christmas, but I would love to spend the holidays with you." He gave voice to his thoughts. Their relationship was still relatively new but he really wanted to be with her on their days off.
"I think it is a wonderful tradition and know how much it still means to you" Ziva looked at him with a soft look in her eyes "and I think I would like to spend the holidays with you, even though I never really celebrated it."
At this Tony had to smile widely and he squeezed her hand before wandering further down the street.
"Hey, what about a nice warm drink?" Tony suggested after a while, seeing the café they were approaching.
"Sounds like a good idea." Ziva’s cheeks were already slightly blushed from the cold and Tony’s hands could only do so much to hold her hands warm as well.
She was about to go into the café when Tony pulled her back and closer to him, causing Ziva to look at him in confusion.
"Is something wrong?" She asked him but never got a reply because before she even knew it he tenderly kissed her and soon she relaxed into his touch and deepened their kiss, reveling in the warms of his lips.
"What was this for?" Ziva smiled at him, her eyes sparkling.
Tony simply pointed at something hanging above them, causing her to be even more confused.
"This Ziva" He started to explain "is a mistletoe. And it’s a tradition to kiss whenever you stand under one." He smirked at her as she tried to understand this tradition.
"And you are sure you did not make this up?" She now teased him and he pretended to be offended but had to laugh at the face she made.
"I swear I did not make this up." He threw his hands up in mock surrender.
"But come on, let us go inside." With that being said he maneuvered her into the small café and they soon got lost into a conversation about the upcoming holidays.
