“I mean it, Penny, it’s going on there today and I’m sending it out to all the big newspapers. I will find one and bring him or her to town.”
Ziva looked at the “sure you will” face on her friend and growled. Sure she’d gone off on this tangent before, only to be shot down by Nick each time, but “enough is enough,” she barked out her last thought.
“What was that,” Penny asked.
“I said, enough was enough and that I’m doing this,” Ziva’s groan negated the resolve of her statement when she found a particularly tender spot between her neck and shoulder.
“Good for you, Z.” Penny’s smile was sincere, but her body language suggested doubts.
“You don’t believe me?”
“I do, Z, it’s just that this same scenario has come up many times and each were shot down by one person or another. Most of the time it was Nick.” Penny stopped typing and looked her way. “However, if there is anything I can do to help, I’m your woman.”
“Actually, there is something you can do. First, don’t let the big man know we’re doing this and second, do we want a masseuse or and masseur?”
“Why not both?” Penny purred.
“I like it.” Ziva grinned. “Now, what species gives the best massage?”
“A bear has a nice grip…” Penny mused.
“Ooh, that’s true. Though a small monkey could grip and walk on your back…”
“No, I’ve got it…an octopus!”
Ziva laughed. “You know I don’t think they have the same number of arms in their human skin.”
“Ah, but if they could imagine all the places they could reach at the same time.”
Ziva and Penny quietly pondered the possibilities until Ziva spoke. “Yep, an octopus, top of the list for sure.”
“What about an octopus?” Nick asked, stepping out of his office.
Ziva and Penny laughed. “Nothing,” they said at the same time.
Ziva hummed as she made her way back to her office, already planning the classified ad she was going to write. An ad no shifter could miss…
