play with, I couldn't help myself!
Present (if you consider season six present. . .I mean like our lifetime
"Do you want me to marry him?" Mac asked. She looked deeply into Harm's
eyes. But Harm couldn't hold her intense gaze, and had to look away.
"I want you to be happy, I've told you that before Mac. I just want you to
be happy." He looked at her, with love in his eyes.
"Brumby will make me happy Harm." It sounded like she was trying to
convince herself, along with Harm.
"Then yes, I want you to marry him." Those were the most painful words
that Harmon Rabb Jr. had ever said in his life. He turned on his heel,
about to leave when he heard her soft voice call out for him.
"Can I have a hug Harm?" Without hesitation, he turned back around, and
gathered her into his arms. She clung to him, never wanting to let go.
"You're still my best friend aren't you?" She asked tearfully, her words
muffled by his neck.
"For eternity Sarah." He dropped a soft kiss on her forehead. His wording
almost made her cry. He was the only one that she wanted to spend eternity
with, but now, she was pledging herself to another. They pulled away just
as the Admiral poked his head in.
"Mac, it's time to go. Harm you'd better get back to your seat." Harm and
Mac shared one last smile.
"Aye aye Sir." With that, he was out of the bridal room. About thirty
minutes later, Harm watched the woman he loved say, "I do," to another man.
Even though Harm and Mac wanted to stay close, Brumby insisted that they
move to Australia. Even though Sarah was now his wife, he still considered
Harm a threat. So the tearful goodbye at the airport was the last time
that they would ever see each other.
1 year later. . .
Harm was driving home from JAG, when his cell phone rang. He picked it up.
"Harm!" Mac squealed. "Guess what?"
Harm laughed at Mac's excited tone. "What Marine?" He asked.
"I'm pregnant!" She said excitedly. It wasn't so much that she was
excited that it was Mic's baby, but that she was having a baby. She
actually desperately wished that it was Harm's. "I'm due in about seven
Harm was happy for her, honestly he was. He knew that Mac had always
wanted a family, he just wished that he was the one that could give it to
her, not Brumby. "That's wonderful Mac! You'll make a great mother, I'm
sure of it."
"Thanks Harm. Look I was wondering if you could come out here sometime.
If you could be here for the birth, and maybe stay for the christening, I'd
really love that." Mac said hopefully.
"Mac, I wouldn't miss it for the world. When do you want me to come up?"
Harm asked, wondering in the back of his mind if she had run this past
Brumby. But at the thought of seeing Mac again, he didn't care what Brumby
thought. He was coming down to see her no matter what.
"I miss you so much Harm." Mac said, her tone lower. Harm figured that
Brumby must not be at home, since he'd been hovering during all of their
"I miss you too Sarah." He said just as quietly, even though he was the
only one in the car. He could picture her soft smile, holding that phone
up to her ear.
"Look I better go Harm. Mic will be home any minute." Although Mic knew
about her and Harm's conversations, he didn't exactly approve of them. She
really didn't want to upset him, especially if he came home drunk.
"Alright, bye Sarah." He said, now accustomed to thinking of her and
calling her Sarah. It was safe now, they no longer worked together, they
only had a personal relationship.
"Bye Harm. I'll see you soon." Mac didn't want to hang up. She had the
strangest gut feeling that something bad was going to happen to Harm. But
she figured that it was just her stomach, since she had had morning
sickness the past month. Within seconds, their connection was broken.
Harm never saw the driver who cruised right through his red light. Harmon
Rabb Jr. didn't suffer, as he went to finally be with his father.
A Few Days Later. . .
Mac couldn't believe that he was really gone. She was just talking to him,
and when they hung up, he . . . he was just gone. Harriet had just called
her; she could barely understand her through the tears. When she first
heard her though, she knew that something had happened to Harm. She knew
that she should've trusted her gut, and told Harm that something was going
But she didn't and now he was gone forever. She would never get a second
chance with him; she would never see that Flyboy smile again. She sniffled
as she fled the family room, locking herself away in her and Mic's room.
She left Mic with a puzzled expression, wondering what could get her so
A Month Later. . .
Mac sat on the examining table at the doctor's office. Tears were falling
down her cheeks, and she was sobbing, not caring who heard. She knew that
she had lost her baby when she felt all the blood.
She couldn't blame anyone, really. After Harm died, she stopped eating,
and locked herself into the bedroom. After a few days, she finally got
out, and went back to work. She threw herself into work, barely eating and
sleeping. Her co- workers were worried about her, but when they tried to
talk to her, she would just bite their heads off.
She couldn't really believe that her baby was gone. She didn't
purposefully neglect herself, but after Harm died, she just always seemed
out of it. Mic finally just accepted the fact that she had still been in
love with him, but now was almost relieved that he was gone.
A few months later. . .
Mic and Mac's divorce was finalized just a month ago. She had moved back
to the states three months ago, and went back to her position at JAG. It
was comforting to be around people that she loved and that loved her back.
It still seemed surreal though, every time she looked into his office,
every time the elevator doors opened she expected him to come walking into
the bullpen, a Flyboy smile on his face.
The day started out as any other. It was a Saturday, and Mac was looking
forward to having dinner at Bud and Harriet's. It had been awhile since
she had seen her godson. It would be the first time that she had visited
without Harm, and she wasn't sure how he would react not seeing 'Auntie Mac
and Unca' Harm' together.
It was an ordinary day, until a gunman snuck past security, out for
revenge. He opened fire on the bullpen, shooting blindly. Mac was helping
everyone get out of the building safely, so she never even saw the gunman
pointing the gun in her direction.
She was hit in the shoulder, but she continued to help the people get out
safely. She turned around for a second, and a bullet hit her again, but
this time fatally in the back. Sarah Mackenzie would finally get to meet
her baby, and be with the man that she loved.
