She went to the kitchen and pulled out a vase to put the roses in. She put them out on the living room table. She turned around and gave Harm another big hug and kiss.
“Thank you very much, Harm. I love the roses. I use to think about the time we met in the rose garden when you gave me roses in the past. But now, I think about that very special day we got married in the rose garden with our families present.” smiled Mac.
“Yes Sarah, that was a very special day. You made me the happiest man alive when you said yes, and married me. I love you so much.” replied Harm as he kissed her.
“I love you too Harm. You’ve made me happier then any other time in my life. I never knew I could be so happy.” sighed Mac.
“I’m glad. I can’t wait to be with you everyday Sarah. As much as I love to fly, it pales to being with you.” smiled Harm as he hugged her.
“Harm, I hope you don’t mind, Bud and Harriet have invited us over for Thanksgiving turkey. You don’t mind going over there tomorrow, do you? I can call them and send our regrets if you’re not up to it.” asked Mac.
She knew Harm was probably tired from his long trip and needed to rest, but she also knew all their friends missed him too.
“No honey, I don’t mind going at all. I miss seeing them and little Aj. He must have grown quite a bit since I’ve been gone.” replied Harm.
He really didn’t want to go. All he wanted to do was spend all his free time with Mac doing the married couple thing he missed out on when he left to fly. They had only a day and a half to be together.
They had a quiet dinner together and then went to bed. They made passionate love long into the night before falling asleep in each other’s arms.
The next day they got up and went on a five mile run together. When they got back they made love in the shower. Finally they left and went over to the Roberts.
When they got there they were surprised to see most of the Jag staff there. Everyone had brought something with them to ease the effort of one person trying to cook the entire meal for more than twenty people.
They heard some hoots from the peanut gallery when they arrived together. All their friends came over and greeted Harm. They told him how much they missed him and hoped he was enjoying being back in the real navy again. They all hoped that soon he would come back to Jag.
“It’s nice to see you today ma’am. I’m happy to see that you convinced the Commander to come along with you.” greeted Harriet with a sly smile.
“It’s nice to see you too Harriet. It wasn’t very hard to get him to come along. He misses you, Bud and little Aj. We are surprise to see everyone here though.” replied Mac.
“Everyone has missed the Commander. And when they heard that he would be here for Thanksgiving, well it only made sense that it would be easier for the Commander to see them all together here rather than looking for them at the office. You two seem to be happy together.”
“Don’t start Harriet. We have been down that road before. Nothing has changed. So let’s drop it okay. And thank you for inviting everyone else.
I’m sure Harm feels more at home with everyone here.” replied Mac wondering why Harriet couldn’t just focus on her own little family instead of concerning herself with Harm and her.
“Okay Ma’am.” replied a chastise Harriet.
“Bud, what is everyone doing here?” asked a surprised Harm.
“Well Sir, We heard that you would be coming home for Thanksgiving. Everyone wanted to see you. So we invited everyone over.” replied Bud.
“That was very considerate of you and Harriet. Not everyone would want to share their holiday with so many.” replied an appreciative Harm.
“Thank you Sir. It seemed the right thing to do.” replied Bud.
They all sat down and enjoyed their dinner and the company of their good friends. They all discuss what was happening in their daily lives. They watched a couple of football games.
The only person who was unhappy was Brumby. He had hoped to spend some quality time with Mac today. He couldn’t understand why Mac was spending so much time with Rabb. Rabb wasn’t Mac’s partner any more, he was.
Brumby wanted to have a relationship with Mac. Rabb didn’t, he only wanted to be friends. Brumby just couldn’t understand why.
Harriet was very please to see Mac spending a lot of time with Harm. She didn’t like to see Brumby with Mac. He was too much of a hound in search of its bone. Always on the scent of some unsuspecting animal.

A couple of days later Harm and Mac went to the annual NATO Ball. It was later this year then last due to the war in Kosovo. Harm was in his dress whites. Mac had on a full length burgundy gown with long sleeves and low cut back.
They were the best looking couple there. They danced for a couple of hours. Mac always enjoyed dancing with Harm. They were a perfect pair. They were so smooth they look like they were gliding over ice. It was so effortlessly.
She never got tired of being in Harm’s arms dancing. They spent some time with their friends who also were there. They avoided answering any questions about their relationship. They still wanted to keep their marriage a secret.
“Colonel, Commander, you looked great out there dancing.” smiled Harriet.
“Thank you Harriet. You and Bud looked okay too.” replied Mac.
“Thank you Ma’am, but we aren’t anywhere near as good as you and the Commander. You two look like you were expressing your love through the way you were dancing.” smiled Harriet. Why can’t they see what everyone else sees?
“Harriet, you need to get past this obsession you seem to have with Harm and me being in love. We are good friends and we like it that way. It’s bad enough dealing with Harm’s obsessions without adding yours to them.
Can you be a good friend and let us be who we choose to be?” responded a frustrated Mac. God why can’t she leave them alone.
“Yes Ma’am. I’m sorry.” replied Harriet. She felt hurt. All she wanted was for Harm and Mac to be able to share what she and Bud shared.
On Sunday they spent half the day together in the park enjoying a rare warm November day before Harm had to leave to go back to the carrier Patrick Henry.
They hugged and kissed good bye. Harm told her he would be home for Christmas. He also thought It would be nice to go to his grandmother’s house and spend Christmas with her away from everyone else.

A month later Harm got into Washington a day earlier then expected. He knew Mac would be at the office. He decided to go to Jag and surprise her. He could wish everyone a merry Christmas while he was there.
He stopped off at the local florist and got Mac a dozen red roses. He walked into the office area and quickly looked around. He hoped to get to Mac office without interruption. He was almost there when he was spotted by Bud.
“Hello Sir. How are you doing? Are you staying around for the holiday?” asked a jovial Bud.
“I’m doing just fine Bud. No, I’m going away. How’s your little family? Put a few pounds have we?” smiled Harm as he continued to look for Mac.
“They are good, Sir. Little Aj is so growing fast. He’ll be walking in a couple of months.” smiled Bud.
“That’s good Bud. I have to find the Colonel. See you later Bud.” smiled Harm as he patted Bud on the shoulder.
Harm quickly walked over to Mac’s office before anyone else interrupted him. He knocked on the door. Bud ran back to find Harriet. He wanted to tell her that the Commander was here.
“Enter!” yelled Mac.
“Hello Ninja girl, how are you doing?” smiled Harm as he took in her beauty. He handed her the roses from behind his back.
“Harm, what a nice surprise. They’re beautiful. Thank you. I’m good now that you are here.” replied Mac as she stood up.
She walked over to the door to close the blinds for some privacy. She then greeted Harm with a big hug and a kiss.
“I’ve missed you so much Flyboy. It’s so good to see you again.” smiled Mac.
“I’ve missed you too Sarah. It’s getting harder every day to be away from you. You look absolutely radiant today. Almost as if you were glowing.” chuckled Harm. He didn’t want to let her go.
“I’m just so happy to see you. I have something to tell you tonight that I think will make you very happy.” smiled Mac coyly.
“I wonder what that could be. You look like you are filling out Ninja girl. Must be all those Beltway burgers catching up to you or is it because you already have the man of your dreams.” smiled Harm.
“Maybe a little of both Flyboy. I’m hungry. Let’s go get something to eat.” chuckled Mac.
“That sounds like the marine I know. I’ll do anything for my little Ninja girl.” smiled Harm as he escorted her out of the office to the elevator.
Brumby saw them leaving together and cursed. “Damm you Rabb. Why can’t you leave Sarah alone so she can move on with her life? You don’t love her like I do. I could give her everything she would ever need.”
Brumby believed that he could make Sarah happy, but if only Harm was out of the picture and would give him a chance. Harriet had seen the blinds being closed in Mac’s office.
She wondered what they were doing in there that they needed the blinds closed. She would have to wait until later when she could corner Mac and ask her.

The next day Harm and Mac drove up to Harm’s grandmother’s house. Both of their families were going to be there. Mac had call Harm’s mother and grandmother about Harm’s desire to have Christmas at his grandmother’s farm.
She also told them that he would love to have everyone there. She also got approval to invite her uncle and mother. Harm and Mac could hardly wait to get there. They had some great news to share with them.
At around 1400 hours they arrived at the house. Everybody came out of the house to greet them with hugs and kisses. The women of the family notice that Mac had a certain glow about her. They all looked at each other, nodded, and smiled. She must be bless. They all went inside the house.
“Please everyone, Sarah and I have an announcement to make.” bellowed Harm with a smile.
“What is it dear?” asked a curious Trish.
“I’m pregnant. I’m due in July.” exclaimed Mac happily.
“That is wonderful news dear.” beamed Deanne.
Everyone again went over to them and congratulated them on the wonderful news. Christmas indeed was going to be very special this year at the Rabb family farm.
First there was Harm and Mac’s marriage, which introduced three new members into their extended family. Harm had come home safe from flying tomcats to his family. And finally a brand new baby would be brought into the world. It certainly was a great year.

The next day, Christmas, they all got together to rejoice all the good news that had came their way this year. Then they exchanged gifts, with most of them going to the newly weds.
Finally they all sat down and ate a great turkey dinner. After dinner they all gathered around the fire in the fireplace. They all told each other what they were thankful for.
Trish was happy that Harm finally got married and she was going to become a grandmother. Frank was thankful that Harm finally understood what he offered his mother and that he could be there when Harm needed assistance with his trip to Russia.
Deanne was happy because she had renewed her relationship with Mac, that Mac was very happy being married to Harm, and she was going to become a grandmother.
Grandma Sarah was happy that her extended family was there to celebrate the holiday together and that her family was getting larger. Harm was happy to be flying and married to Mac and especially the news that he was going to be a father.
Finally Mac was happy because she had finally got rid of all her demons. She had married Harm, the man of her dreams, found her mom, and that she was going to have a baby with Harm. This definitely was a very good Christmas for the Rabb family.
A couple of days later Harm and Mac headed back to Washington DC.
They were very happy. They had shared their wonderful news with their families and they were all excited.
The ride home was long, but they enjoyed the peacefulness of being alone together. They were very contented. They discussed their plans for the near future. Harm was going to try and get back to Jag.
As much as he loved to fly, he loved being with Mac even more. And now that they were going to have a baby, he wanted to be home with Mac even more so.
He also liked working in Jag. He got to use his brain to out think the other person. It satisfied his competitive nature in a much safer environment.

Three months later Harm returned to visit Mac. He was on a four-day pass. He wanted to let Mac know when he would be returning to Jag full time. They sat down and ate quiet dinner.
Mac had gotten permission from the Admiral to take a couple of days so she could spend time with Harm. After dinner they went to the couch and sat down. Harm wrapped Mac in his arms as they watched the fire in the fireplace.
“So fly boy, any news to when you’re coming back to Jag?” asked Mac hopefully.
“Yes I have Sarah. I received word this morning from Congresswomen Laythem. My tour of duty on the carrier Patrick Henry will end 25 May. My reporting date to Jag will be the following Thursday 1 June.
I can’t wait to get back. I really missed being here with you on a daily basis. I never knew how much until I was away from you on the carrier. You have become such an integral part of my life that I hadn’t realized how much my life could change on a daily basis.
I’m glad that I’d married you when I did. I don’t want to think about what my life would be like if you weren’t in it any more. Thank you Sarah for marring me. Thank you for giving me someone to come home to. I love you so very much.” smiled Harm happily.
“The same goes for me Harm. Knowing that you were coming back to me when you were done flying has enabled me to survive the last seven months without you. I have missed you so much Harm. I love you.” replied Mac as she snuggled closer to Harm.
“I see that you are beginning to show. Has anyone said anything to you about it?” asked Harm.
“I’ve heard from several people including the Admiral. I haven’t told anyone who the father is. Some think it maybe Brumby’s. I haven’t confirmed it or denied it. I told them they would know when the time was right.” smiled Mac.
They spent the long weekend together before Harm went back to the carrier. They talked about what they were going to do when the baby was born.
Mac agreed to start looking for a bigger place to live. She would e-mail Harm when she found something. She agreed to let Frank know when she found a place. He wanted to do something nice for them.

Harm had just returned to Washington DC. He knew Mac would still be at Jag so he went over there to see her. When he got there he saw Mac standing by her office talking with Harriet.
He walked over to Mac and took her into his arms. He lean downed and gave her a kiss. Harriet jaw dropped. She was taken completely by surprise by Harm’s actions.
“Hello Harriet, could you please excuse us. I need to talk with Sarah.” smiled Harm at a shocked Harriet.
“Uh ..... uh ..... uh, Yes Sir, glad to see you back at Jag, Commander.” stuttered Harriet.
She excused herself and went looking for Bud. Boy did she have some good news to tell him.
“Hello sailor, you come here often?” smiled Mac coyly.
“I will be coming here every day from now on Ninja girl.” smiled Harm lovingly.
“I hope you know you have just ignited the Harriet gossip hotline. By the end of the day everyone in the office will know that you gave me a hug and a kiss.” chuckled Mac happily.
“Well let’s see if she can put two plus two together.” replied Harm with a smirk.
“You’re so mean Flyboy.” laughed Mac.
“What time are you getting off tonight?” asked Harm.
“About 1700 hours.” replied Mac.
“I’ll make a reservation at you favorite Italian restaurant for 1900 hours. That will give us time to go home and change for dinner.” responded Harm.
“That sounds like a great idea Flyboy.” replied Mac coyly.
“Okay then, I’ll be back around 1700 to pick you up. Bye, bye Ninja girl.” replied Harm as he gave her a kiss.
Harm went back to his place and made the reservations. By the time he got back everyone had heard about how he greeted Mac earlier in the day. The office was buzzing.
Harm said hello to everyone and confirmed that he was back for good. He would start work on Thursday, after the holiday. He then left with Mac. They went out to dinner and later did some slow dancing. Mac was to far along to get down and do some serious boogying.
Meanwhile Brumby was sulking in his office. He knew whatever chance he had to get Mac to be with him had gone out the window. He knew Mac love Harm.
The following week Harm and Mac went in to see the Admiral. They told him that they had gotten married, but still wanted to work together in some capacity.
The Admiral told them they would have to be assigned different partners, but they would probably work together on high profile cases. He then asked if Harm was the father of Mac’s baby. They confirmed that Harm was the father.

at the hospital
Seven weeks later Mac started to go into labor. Harm called his parents, Uncle Matt, Mac’s mother and Chloe to let them know he was taking Mac to the hospital. It was time for her to give birth to their son.
Early the next morning after being in labor for fourteen hours Mac gave birth to a baby boy. They name him Frank Harmon Rabb. They wanted to give him his own identity.
Harm wanted Frank to know how much he appreciated how Frank took care of his mother and was there for him even though he hadn’t appreciated it in the past.
Two days later Harm brought Mac home to their new house. Their families were there to greet them. They had spent the last couple of days getting everything ready for the baby. Later that day they invited over some close friends to celebrate the birth of their son.
