Why Didn't You Tell Me?

Disclaimer: Yada yada yada…blah blah… don't sue me…don't own DJE… Damn he's HOT! You know the drill now let's get on with the story.

Author's Note: Here is my newest fic. It is a little bit different then what I have been writing. I had this idea after I ran into someone I hadn't seen in a very long time, we had been really close and then he and his family just up and left I didn't know what had happened to him until just a month or so ago. I thought that this experience would be something that I could have Harm and Mac go through, but for slightly different reasons. I hope you will read and review it.

Mac's Apartment

0225 Romeo

"Well Mac, how many more do we have?" Harm asked Mac from the couch.

"It think we are down to the last one, and it's the thickest too." Mac plopped down beside him in a T-shirt and jeans and opened the last remaining case file to the first page. She read the first paragraph and groaned,

"Guess who we will get to work on this with?"

"Your ex-boyfriend Webb, right? How long has it been since he left?" Harm asked.

"Oh I guess it's been a month or two. He really wasn't anything to cry about, ya know? Where as you…" Mac stopped she suddenly felt awkward.

"Where as I what Mac? You can tell me."

"Well you would be something to cry about… if I lost you." Mac admitted softly. Harm took her hand and said,

"You won't ever lose me. I promise."

"I already have. I want to be an us not a you and me and that dream has ridden off into the sunset." Mac sighed biting her lower lip and trying not to cry.

"Do you want to try it? I want to be an us too, I always have, just tell me when. I am ready to let go of the past, and grab a hold of you." Harm said taking her chin in his hand and bringing up her face and he searched her eyes, and she quickly averted her gaze.

"Mac don't do this." Harm pleaded. After a minute she answered.

"You're sure? I'm not an obsession too am I? You won't give me up when you get tired of me?"

"Of course not! The only way I would ever let you go is if you weren't happy, I love you and I never ever want to hurt you, got me? Mac look at me, I love you and don't you think for a minute that I would give you up when I get bored. I will never get tired of you." Harm quieted her fears and Mac looked back at him.

"Alright, we've wasted too much time already. I love you Harm."

"Me too Mac me too." Harm whispered and leaned in and their lips met in a kiss that was for the ages and held so much emotion and love. After the entire emotional roller coaster and the struggle and pain they had finally made it. All the wrinkles had been ironed out and finally they could express the undying passion overwhelming them. The kiss became more heated and they wanted more from the other so Harm broke the kiss and taking Mac into his arms carried her to her bedroom and only the night knows exactly what went on. Little did theyknow that the tides were turning possibly for the worst.

A/N: Hope you enjoied it if you want more then you will have to review beacause this isn't even close to the end.
