Abby & Tony scene

Dunno what story this will fit into, but it just kinda came to me, so I had to put it down. I’m thinkin maybe the Stillness of Heart sequel, but I’m not 100%

He saw the punch coming out of the corner of his eye and with a speed that surprised even him caught the wrist, before the fist could land the punch. He fought not to squeeze too hard. He fought not to let his temper get the best of him. He wasn’t sure where it came from, or why now all of a sudden, when certainly she had in the past been much worse than she is now. Lately though, he wasn’t in any mood to put up with her little “quirks”. Maybe it was the new relationship, the knowledge that Jethro was behind him. Maybe it was just the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, but he no longer had the tolerance to baby one Abigail Scuito.

Tony turned hard, angry eyes toward her. “Hitting people isn’t funny or cute Abby. If you ever hit me again, I will bring you up on charges.” Abby’s eyes got big and she opened her mouth to respond, but Tony found himself cutting her off. “Grow up Abby. You aren’t a child, but you sure as fuck act like one sometimes. The world doesn’t revolve around you. You aren’t Gibbs’ favorite, but you are the one he thinks of as a daughter. Be happy with what you have, open your eyes, and act like an adult. I love you like my little sister, but I’m past the point where I will be surprised if someday I grew to hate you. The really sad part is, I don’t even know when that happened.”

Tony turned to leave as she stood looking at him with disbelief, open mouthed. “I’ll send Tim down to get the results. Just… seriously Abby, grow the hell up.”
