more I love
The more my heart can't get enough
That's when I love you
When I love you
No matter what'
Mac glanced over at Harm, who was sitting at his desk, trying to finish up some paperwork on the case he had just closed. Mac smiled and turned back to the chili she was currently making. They were enjoying a comfortable night in, after a long and trying week.
She turned back to him suddenly, letting the chili simmer. "Harm?" She couldn't hold back the grin when he turned around, a cute questioning look on his face. "What were you like as a kid?"
He laughed and set down his pen, looking at her curiously. "What brought that up Marine?"
She smiled and turned back to the chili. "Well, I was just sitting here, and I wondered how you got to be the man that you are today. And then I realized that I didn't really know a whole lot about your childhood." She shrugged and grinned at him. "I'm curious, so I asked."
Harm nodded, a large Flyboy smile on his face, as he got up from his chair and headed towards her. "Well…I grew up in California. La Jolla to be exact."
"Oh c'mon Harm, I knew that. I want the juicy stuff! Who was the first girl you asked out, what was your first kiss like? What was your first car?" She asked, a bright smile on her face and an even brighter gleam in her eyes.
Leave it to Mac to bring up cars. Harm had learned since he started dating his Marine counterpart, that she had a fascination with cars, something that started right after she bought her first Corvette. "The first girl I asked out…was Cindy Nichols. Seventh grade. I was petrified." Mac laughed and ruffled his hair playfully.
Harm came around to a seat at his bar, watching Mac tend to their dinner. "My first kiss…real kiss or on the cheek?"
Mac bit her lip and pretended to think. "Umm…either. As long as it isn't 'Oh, I kissed my mom when I was about three or so.'" She smirked. "I said juicy Harm."
He laughed and leaned his chin on his hand. "Alright, if you want juicy…my first kiss on the lips was with Melissa Elliott. I was fifteen, and she was sixteen."
"Oh, an older woman!" Mac interrupted, smiling deviously. Harm just laughed and shook his head.
"It was at summer camp. We were out by the pool, and we had been flirting the entire summer. We were talking, and all the sudden I just get overcome by this urge to kiss her. So I lean in, and actually…as I look back on it, it was probably a really awkward kiss." Mac giggled as she continued to stir their dinner. "And I pulled away and she smiled at me and said, 'Sorry, you're not really my type Harm.'"
Mac gasped, and giggled. "Oh poor baby, shot down." She leaned across the bar to give him a quick peck on the lips. "I bet it was that kiss. Good thing that you've gotten better, huh?" Harm gave her a look that clearly said 'You think you're so funny…'.
"Now what was the other thing that you wanted to know?"
"Umm…..first car." She said, her eyes lighting up. Harm just chuckled and shook his head.
"It was a uh…Ford Fiesta." Mac smiled amusedly, raising her eyebrow, not believing it. "It's true! My mom was still mad at me for going off to Laos, but Frank convinced her to at least get me a car. So she got me a Fiesta." Mac laughed and shook her head. "So what else do you want to know about me Mac?"
She smiled as she came around the bar, and stood between his splayed legs. She wrapped her arms around his neck, and lightly kissed his forehead. "Let's see…what else do I want to know about the ever elusive Harmon Rabb?" She giggled, lightly stroking his cheek.
He smiled, and leaned up to lightly kiss her. "My favorite color is navy blue." She snorted and he grinned at her again. "Not like you didn't already know that."
"When was the first time that you realized you were in love with me?" She asked quietly, running her fingers casually through his hair.
Harm grinned and brought his arms up to encircle her waist. "That doesn't have to do with my childhood." Mac shrugged and grinned. "Let's see…I honestly think that it was when I found out about you and John Farrow. I was so jealous of what you two had…" He shrugged. "And it kicked in even more when you left. I knew then that I wasn't just in love with you, but that you were a huge part of my life." He kissed her lips lightly. "It just wasn't the same without you there."
Mac smiled down at him, and leaned down a little bit to kiss him again. "Call me crazy but I love you more and more each day Rabb."
"I love you more every day too Crazy." Mac giggled and lightly hit his arm.
"Very funny Flyboy." She said, stepping backwards and out of his arms. "Just for that, no more cuddles for you. I have to finish our dinner." She grinned as she walked back over to the stove.
Author's Notes: No offense to anyone with a Fiesta! I needed an older car that wasn't exactly 'cool' so…that's what my mom suggested. Hope you guys enjoyed, and please review with your thoughts! I promise I'll try and get the next few parts out sooner!
