CHAPTER 11: THE END, ALTHOUGH JUST THE BEGINNING

Harm and Mac broke into relieved smiles. AJ gave them a brief smile and headed out of the building for lunch. Their coworkers gathered around the couple, pressing for details and handing out congratulations. The rest of the day seemed to fly by for them both but they were finally able to break free and headed home. Sturgis promised that he would get them the tickets soon but that was the last of their worries. They were finally a couple, their relationship was no longer a secret, and it seemed like life was perfect and could only get better.

They were driving home, moving slowly in the traffic, when Harm reached over to take Mac's hand in his. They smiled at each other and he pulled her hand up to his mouth to place a gentle kiss on it.

"I love you," he said softly, his facial expression confirming his words.

"Life is good, isn't it?" asked Mac.

"Yes, it is," Harm readily agreed. "But what would make it even better would be fulfilling our baby deal."

She grinned at him. "Aren't we already working on that?"

"We are."

"Maybe we shouldn't have to try so hard anymore," she said mysteriously.

He stared at her. "Are you...? Are we...?" Harm couldn't seem to voice the word he wanted to: pregnant. It was too much to hope for right now.

Mac just smiled at him. "I love you," she said, leaning in to kiss him.

AN: Maybe there'll be a sequel...I don't know yet. I will be posting some other stories soon, hopefully. But I just want to say thanks for the numerous, wonderful reviews.
