Lizards and Teddy Bears by PEJA
Gibbs was frozen to the spot when he stepped into the room, his eyes fused on the feverish man sprawled naked on their bed.
He finally shook off the horror and back-peddled out of the room, dashing to the refrigerator for several bottles of water before he bolted back to the bedroom, slowing only as he caught Tony's widening, apprehensive gaze.
"Tony, it's all right. I'm here now."
A furious sneer pulled at Tony's pale lips. "You can't have the baby," he hissed, scrambling backwards on the bed, pressing himself into the headboard and curling in on himself, his arms wrapped protectively around his legs. "You gave it to me...I won't let you give it away. I won't."
"Okay, Tony. I won't do that to you....To us." Gibbs stepped closer, his arms spread wide at his waist. "Whatever you want, Tony. Just tell me what you want and I'll give it to you."
Tony snorted, "Yeah, right. Long as you figure its okay, huh? 'Cause I'm too damn stupid to know what's right for me. Too damn stupid to make any decisions about my life? My body? Damn you to hell, Gibbs. Its my body."
"I don't think you're stupid, Tony?"
Tony grunted his disbelief.
"I don't, Tony." Gibbs raked a trembling hand through his hair. "I...I wanted...I thought..." He sighed, slumping down beside the younger man. "I ...forgot you are not of my kind. I treated you as I would treat one of the children of Sobek.
Tony's natural curiosity rose in his eyes. "Sobek?"
"Mmmm? Yeah," Gibbs set aside all but one of the bottles of water, then patted the bed next to him and cracked open the bottle he still held, handing it to Tony when the younger man had eased down to sit more comfortably near him. "What do you know about... Egyptian mythology, Tony?' He guided the open bottle to Tony's lips, crooking an eyebrow at him.
sighing, Tony took a long drink and shrugged. "Not a lot."
"Okay, well, all you need to know is that the Egyptians counted among their gods a creature called Sobek. A god with the head of a crocodile."
"What does that have to do with you...and me?"
Gibbs slowly slid his arms around Tony, easing the man's body against his own. Tony laid stiffly against him for several breaths, then slowly relaxed into his embrace, letting his head drop into the crook of Gibbs' shoulder. "My people escaped our planet in the midst of a planetary coup. The royal family fled for their lives, hiding across the far reaches of the Universe."
"Sounds like Star Wars, boss." Tony murmured.
Chuckling at that, Gibbs agreed, then continued. "the Royals split into several craft. Sobek's line was carried on a path that cut across Earth's orbital plain. the pilot's miscalculated, got caught in the gravitational fields of this planet. They nearly escaped, but the craft suddenly encountered engine failure. In the end, the pilots were just barely able to land in a region of Egypt around Al Fayyum. Fearing something more than accidental damage, the children of Sobek abandoned ship, destroyed their craft and using their form shifting ability, blended into the native background."
"What does this have to do with you?"
"I am a direct descendant of Prince Sobek. Fifth in line to the throne here on Earth, as it happens, for what that is worth. In the Sobek community, I was raised as a person of privilege... spoiled, pampered. Used to taking what I want. Or having it given to me. Not an excuse for what I did to you, but ...I love you, Tony. I was afraid when you found out the truth about me..."
"I'd run?" Tony sighed.
"That, yes." Gibbs nodded slowly, tightening his hold on his over-heated lover. "But afraid of myself as well. when it comes to my ...chameleon side... I can be...autocratic."
"Gee, you knock me up...using a woman I have issues with in the first place. Tell me I'm confined to quarters. Decide to take back my child..." He glared at Gibbs. "And give it to Jimmy Palmer. Palmer? And you say you can get autocratic? Never would have guessed that." He laughed softly, in self-depreciation. "And as to me running...if you'd told me you planned to impregnate me, Yeah, I probably would have."
"But I like to think I would have come back. "
Gibbs tightened his embrace, murmuring, " So do I, my precious boy. So do I."
