Tony DiNozzo and Timothy McGee: Through thick and thin.
“Tony!” Tim McGee’s shrieks could be heard clear across the street. He knew their cover had been blown. He knew that there was danger about to brew. He didn’t count on Tony getting hurt.
Legs heavy and heart pounding, Tim bolted across the street to his partner and lover skidding on his knees against the pavement next to the bruised and increasingly bloody Tony DiNozzo.
“Tony … Tony come on stay with me,” Tim’s hands shook as he picked up his partner and rested him into his lap. Tony was bleeding out of his nose, chest, and back profusely. Tim started to wonder if maybe the older man would make it at all.
Their undercover case as a Marine couple went horribly wrong when Tony’d been had. The suspects they were trailing severely beat and shot the agent with Tim watching, not stepping in on orders from both Tony and Gibbs. Now the young man wished he had done something.
“Stay with me,” Tim pleaded again hearing the ambulance sirens in the near distance. He figured that Gibbs must have called for them while they went after the attackers.
Tony was un-moving, bleeding out and shallowly breathing. Tim reached over stroking his lover’s bloodied cheek and letting his tears run down his cheeks freely. “Stay with me, Tony. You promised. You gotta hang on. Just stay with me. They’re coming, Tony. They’re coming for you.”
Blinking slowly with his eyes glassed over and face turning pale, Tony looked over at Tim hazily and croaked out, “M’not goin’nywhere.”
Tim: I was in the bathtub.

Anyone else get the idea that Tony was imagining Tim in the bathtub just then? Because that’s what I got from Tony biting his lip.
