Pregnant. Ziva David was pregnant with Tony's child. They had been seeing each other for the past four months and all was going smoothly with what ever it was between them. All types of thoughts were running though Ziva's mind at this point.
"Are we even together? Is this just friends with benefits? Will he want the child? How will he react to this? How am I going to tell Tony I'm having his child? Can I manage to look after this child by myself? Do I want to keep this child? How am I going to tell Gibbs he will kill me?!" Ziva paced up and down the living room of her apartment thinking of the best way to deal with the situation and what she was going to do.
Ziva had made up her mind she was going to keep this child whether Tony wanted it or not. She wasn't going to kill an innocent life just because he didn't have the balls to man up and be a father to the child they created together. Whilst she had the courage she quickly got changed and went over to Tony's to tell him of the news before she would change her mind.
She banged on Tony's door and he quickly answer "Wow what's with all the knocking…. Oh it's up what's up Zi?"
"I need to talk to you about something preferably inside" She replied quickly and Tony stepped aside to tell her in.
"So what's so important that couldn't wait to tell me at work instead?" Tony said.
"I don't know how to tell you this so I'm just going to come out and say it. Tony I'm pregnant." Ziva said whilst trying to look anyway in the room but Tony's eyes. She quickly looked up to see Tony, just standing there speechless and wide eyes. She quickly made assumptions that he didn't want this baby and started rambling on.
"Before you ask yes it is your child and yes I am keeping this child whether you like it or not. I'm not forcing you to be a part of the baby's life as this wasn't planned and god knows what we are anyway! In a relationship or friends with benefits? Who knows. Anyway I thought you should know so we can stop what ever it is between us and go back to just being partners again. I'll tell Gibbs I had a one night stand don't worry the secret is safe." She said then went to go and leave seeing as Tony wasn't saying anything.
She got into her car and put her head on the steering wheel and let the tears flow from her eyes. After a while she stopped crying and made her way back to her apartment and realised she had to be strong for herself and this baby. After all, she was going to be a mother in less than 9 months. When she arrived back at her place she quickly made her way to the couch and collapsed on it and let her mind go back to today's events. Her thoughts were interrupted by a loud knocking at the door.
"Ziva I know you are in there, we need to talk seeing as you didn't give me a chance to say anything before." Ziva just ignored him and went to watch the TV instead.
" Zee-vah I can hear the TV going so I know you can hear me! I'm not going to stop knocking until you open this door and talk to me! Zi, open the door now!" Tony yelled.
This got Ziva mad, how dare he accuse her of not giving him the chance to talk when she waited for what seemed like hours to hear his reply yet he didn't utter a single word. He just stood there whilst she left, if he wanted to talk to her he could have told her not to go or followed her but no he didn't.
Ziva yanked the door open which nearly sent Tony flying. " WHAT?! What do you want? Why don't you just go back to your perfect little life and leave me alone?! Is that to much to ask for?!" Ziva yelled as Tony made his way into her home. She quickly slammed the door behind him.
Tony stared into Ziva's eyes and he could tell she meant business by the look on her face. "I'm here to talk to you about this which we could have done if you gave me a chance back at my place and didn't walk out."
"You are really blaming this on me when I gave you the chance to speak and instead of speaking you just stared at me. If you wanted to talk to me that badly you would have answered me or followed me when I left so don't go saying I didn't give you a chance when I did! As for talking there is nothing to talk about, I'm keeping this child and raising the baby on my own. Everyone will think I had a one night stand so we don't need to talk about what to say to people." Ziva half yelled.
"Will you just shut up and listen to me for five minutes? I was shocked when you told me and I was letting it sink in. I've had time to think things through and I know this baby wasn't planned but I want to be a part of his or hers life and also a part of your life.
I want everyone to know that it's my child you are carrying I want to scream it from the rooftops how lucky I am! You're the mother of my child and I want to be with you. I'll prove to you that I can be there for you and this baby." He replied whilst looking into her dark brown eyes and putting his large palms under her shirt onto her stomach. Ziva stared back at him and was going over everything he had just said. Tony took this as an opportunity to kiss her so he bent down and gave her a short but passionate kiss. Once he knew Ziva was ok with it he quickly deepened the kiss and held on to her tight to show that he wasn't going to let her go. They only stopped when they needed air and they lent their foreheads against each other. Ziva looked up at Tony.
"Please mean all those things what you said Tony because I don't think I can let you be apart of my life and this baby's life and then have you leave us." Ziva whispered.
Tony moved Ziva's hair out of her face and put his hand under her chin so she could see him. "I'll never leave you or let you down. I love you and this baby and I will do what ever it takes to prove this to you. We have been together for 4 months and I haven't slept with anyone else and I know you haven't.
I thought we was together but you was uncertain so.. I'm saying to you now… Ziva David you're my girlfriend and soon if you will let me I plan on making you my wife. I went to the other side of the world for you once and I'd do it all over again. Me, you and our little baby are going to be a family and I'll do anything for the two of you." He whispered back. She responded to this with tears in her eyes and gave him a sweet loving kiss.
They held each other and was so caught up with each other. "I love you" Ziva whispered.
"I love you too, baby" Tony replied.
