Deeks plans to make their first date perfect. Fiction T - English - Romance - M. Follow-up to "Fish"; she's all in, and so is he. I do not own NCIS: I do own Catherine Rivers. Catherine Rivers was sure she was dreaming. She was at her medical school graduation ceremony, just about to receive her coveted diploma. Her Mom, Dad, Deeks and whole family were cheering loudly in the stands. She was about to shake the Dean's hand when she was awakened the sound of her cell phone ringing obnoxiously loud.
Checking the time, she mumbled obscenities at the early hour of 7: Reaching over blindly, she answered the phone, "Hello? But why on earth are you calling me? I have a late class today. I wanted to sleep in, and then head to the gym. Medical Student, that's not possible. I need your help to execute Operation Date Night.
Do I have to go undercover or something? Can I wear an awesome outfit? Because, actually, that would be pretty cool. When you get there, let me know.
Ignoring being called Katie, Catherine began to think backwards to what Marty just said. Silently processing his words, it suddenly all made sense and a huge smile graced her face, "You and Kensi? I want it to be romantic but still totally Densi. Don't you follow celebrity gossip Katie? So why don't we start there. I have a brilliant idea. After driving around all of Los Angeles, she landed at Venice Beach, where she met Deeks' pseudo kid sister. Said kid sister found Deeks. Then Deeks and Kensi decided to rule the aquarium, standard.
And now Kensi was replying their kiss over and over in her mind, wondering how she would go about this. Although the second option was tempting, how long could they actually keep it a secret? Hetty would eventually know. Privately thinking that she needed to intercept Deeks before he walked into the bullpen, she casually made her way back to her car, waving at a confused Callen as he made his way inside.
Seeing Deeks exiting his car, she looked around and realized that he was in a complete camera blind spot with no agents in the immediate vicinity. Walking over, she smiled at him, her mismatched eyes sparkling.
Federal agents know how to keep secrets right? Kensi nodded affirmatively; secretly thrilled he was on board with option two, at least for the time being.
Because Katie called me this morning and she has a mixed martial arts question for you. She wants to change her workout or something. She'll be at OPS around 5, I'll inform security. Not willing to back down from her stare, Eric swallowed loudly before he spoke, "It's not that, Nell. I just think that you're looking at this from an analytical point of view, where you should be looking at from a purely emotional standpoint.
Are you feeling ok? Did Hetty catch you eating cookies in OPS, whack you on the head and give you a concussion? You should see a doctor, if that's the case. Yes to the second. And my answer is no to the third. Just think about it. Without algorithms, computers, code. Just pure emotion, feeling something because you just do and can't help it. Deeks had left early for the day, saying that he needed an early start to the weekend. He breezed out of the bullpen, nodding towards Sam and Callen and privately sending Kensi a quick wink.
She assumed that his early start had something to do with their date tomorrow. She wondered idly what Deeks had planned. Her thoughts were cut short by the arrival of Catherine, clad in a red dress, who had appeared in front of her. Catching on to her awkward stance, Kensi introduced her, "Guys, this is a friend of Deeks', her name's Catherine. Catherine, this is Sam and Callen. Turning around towards Kensi, she silently pulled a box out of her bulky purse and placed it on Kensi's desk.
Looking at the label, Kensi's face split into a grin, "Sprinkles Cupcakes? I love these, especially the red velvet ones. Seriously how did you-"? Smiling at the look on Kensi's face, Catherine was sure that she had read the message that was written in icing across the cupcakes: She had to change hospitals for her other rotations, she mused.
Patients could now recognize her. Dear Kensi, the letter read, Our date has been moved to tonight. I mentioned that you love cupcakes and other sugar-filled backed goods once. So naturally, Katie thought up the idea about writing the message in icing. She also has no questions involving mixed martial arts- seriously, how could you fall for that one? Clearly, I've taught her well. Anyway, please get dressed in that royal blue dress that I've always liked.
Katie will drive, and blindfold you. So don't freak out. Love, Deeks Smiling broadly, Kensi got up, letter in one hand, cupcakes in the other. She failed to notice the confusion painted on Sam and Callen's faces until Callen loudly cleared his throat.
Throwing caution to the wind, she looked him straight in the eye and said, "Callen, Deeks and I are together. We're going out tonight. Kensi looked at him curiously, questioning his sanity until she saw Callen pull out a few twenties from his point and glumly hand the money over to Sam. Thought you two would get together after Valentine's Day, of He fidgeted with his tie once more, feeling slightly constricted.
The tie, however, was perfect; it matched Kensi's dress. Standing at the top of the Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles spread out in front of him, stretching for miles. He loved LA; there was no other city where he felt at home. No other city where he felt at peace. No other city that had her. Truth be told, he thought Kensi was attractive from the moment he saw her in those gym clothes all those years ago. She was engrained in his mind throughout that undercover human trafficking mission for LAPD.
And she made herself a permanent mansion in his mind when she kissed him. Granted, it was as Melissa, or so she said. There was no way a kiss like that could have been just for show. The table is ready as per your request. I have the champagne chilled, the vegetables are on the grill and the pork roast is shimmering in its red wine sauce," the man responded. He figured that coming clean with the older woman was the right course of action.
It guaranteed him full use of his limbs, once the truth was told. And Hetty did not seem angry, or upset. She seemed sort of relieved that it had finally happened. Kensi and Deeks, together at last.
Hearing a car pull up, he turned around and saw Katie driving, with a rather angry looking, blindfolded Kensi in the front seat. Katie opened the door and walked out of the car, her brunette hair catching rays of sunlight and red cotton dress dancing the light breeze. She opened the door, held out her hand to help Kensi out and Deeks' jaw hit the floor.
