Sweetest Gift Chapter 3

Disclaimer: I'm not sure who owns 'Let It Snow' but it's not me! Oh! And thanks to GuitarVixen, I now have my own Harm! ::grins wickedly:: Hope you enjoy!

Mac smiled as she snuggled up against Harm, seeking out the warmth that only he could provide her. Eventually, she decided that they could both use something else to do, other than snuggling, of course. She got up to begin fixing some coffee, when she happened to glance out the window.

"Wow, look at the snow Harm." She said, calling out to the man that looked so at home on her couch. Harm grinned as he got up from the couch, and came to stand behind Mac. "Isn't it beautiful?" She asked, leaning back against him, as she smiled, feeling content as his arms came around her waist.

"Yeah, it is." Harm said, looking at Mac instead of outside. Mac turned to him, a slight blush creeping up to her cheeks. He lightly nibbled at her ear, and she grinned, attempting half-heartedly swatting him away.

"Harm, I was talking about the snow." She said playfully, finally melding into him.

"Mmm…but you're beautiful too Sarah." He whispered. He began placing light kisses down her neck and smiled when he felt her shudder slightly.

"Harm?" She whispered, still leaning against him. He acted as if he hadn't heard her, and continued to make an early morning/late night snack out of her neck. "Harm?" She tried again, her voice still weak with desire.

"What?" Harm finally muttered, his lips still attached to her neck. Mac grinned, happy at finally getting a reaction out of him.

"Coffee's ready." She murmured, leaning into him once more.

'Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!'

Harm chuckled and slowly let her go. Mac turned around and smiled happily, leaning against his chest. "C'mon Flyboy. Help me go get some coffee." She said grinning.
Harm smiled, and followed her into the kitchen.

He leaned against the counter as he watched her move around the kitchen. She busied herself getting the mugs and cream and such, while he just sat back and watched. He couldn't help it anymore though, and gave into the overwhelming urge to touch her. His arms wrapped around her waist from behind, and he place a soft kiss below her ear. She giggled, and playfully struggled against him, but she wasn't very convincing. "I've never seen you this happy before." The words were out before he had any chance of stopping them.

Mac turned around slowly, a grin still on her face. She kissed him lightly. "I've never been this happy before." She said simply. She turned back to the counter, and handed him his mug of coffee.

"So how do you think that your Christmas has been so far?" Mac asked as they retreated back to the couch. She giggled as she looked back at Harm, who was smiling simply.

"Well……..I'm spending the night with the woman that I love more than anything, we're snuggling on the couch, the fire is roaring, and the snow doesn't look like it's stopping anytime soon. So you never know….I could just get snowed in with someone very special." He murmured, wrapping his arms tightly around her waist.

'It doesn't show signs of stopping
And I've bought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!'

Mac laughed and leaned into him. "Sounds nice."

Harm smiled and brushed her cheek gently with the back of his hand. "Sure is." Mac yawned, and tried to cover it up with the back of her hand, but Harm had already noticed. "Mac are you tired sweetheart?" He asked quietly.

"Maybe a little bit…" She murmured. "But I don't want this to end…"

Harm smiled down at her, and lightly kissed her forehead. "I promise Mac. This won't go away tomorrow, or the next day. Not ever." Mac smiled up at him sleepily.

"Okay." She whispered, as she got up, and started towards her bedroom. When Harm didn't follow, she looked back at him shyly, and shot him a soft smile. "Stay with me tonight?" Harm nodded silently, and followed her into the bedroom.

Later that morning…

Mac was awakened from her comfortable dreamland by a phone ringing. She groggily rolled over groped around her night table for the cordless phone. "'Lo?" She murmured.

"Hi Mac!" Chole's bright voice rang through her ears. "Merry Christmas!"

Mac smiled, and rubbed at her eyes, briefly checking her internal clock. "Merry Christmas to you too Chole." She said, trying to keep quiet so that she wouldn't wake Harm. She grinned as she felt him shift, and wrap his arms tighter around her. "How are you sweetie?"

"I'm great Mac! Why are you being so quiet? Are you sick or something?" Chole paused for a minute, and then suddenly spoke up again, as if prompted by someone. "Thank you for the necklace and sweater Mac, they're both beautiful!"

Mac laughed at her little sister. "You're welcome Chole. I haven't gotten a chance to open the gift from you yet, but I'm sure that I'll love it." She said. She wasn't going to address the quiet thing unless she had to.

"Mac, honey, who are you talking to?" Mac felt Harm's warm breath up against her ear, and got a warm fuzzy feeling in the pit of her stomach at hearing the endearment coming out of Harm's mouth. Unfortunately, he wasn't exactly as quiet as she was, and from the squeal coming over the line, Mac was guessing that Chole had heard him.

"Oh my God Mac! Who was that? It sounded like….Harm! Mac, did you sleep with Harm?!?!?!" Chole asked excitedly.

Mac laughed, and lightly kissed Harm's cheek, and pressed a gentle finger against his lips. "Yes Chole, that was Harm. And no…we didn't sleep with each other. Well….not in the sense that you're thinking. We just…slept last night." Mac said, grinning, and she felt Harm's slight grin on her neck.

"Oh my God!" Chole squealed. "So does this mean that you guys are like, a couple now?"

Mac laughed again. "I don't know Chole. It kind of looks that way."

"YES!" Mac could just picture her little sister jumping up and down. Suddenly, it was quiet again, and Chole's voice came back over the line. "Crap, you guys probably want me to leave you alone. Tell Harm hi, and Merry Christmas, and Merry Christmas to you too Mac, and I just wanted to say…FINALLY YOU GUYS!" Chole said excitedly, and before Mac had a chance to reply, she heard a click over the line.

She chuckled, and put the phone back down on her nightstand, and rolled over so that she was facing Harm. "Good morning." She whispered quietly, and lightly caught his lips with hers. "Merry Christmas."

Harm smiled back at her, and lightly cupped her cheek. His thumb brushed across the creamy skin that it rested on, and he lightly kissed her forehead. Mac's eyes fluttered closed at the blissful feelings that he was invoking in her. "Merry Christmas Sarah." He whispered against her. "I love you."

And for some reason, this didn't come as a shock when he said it. Usually when men said that to her, she didn't expect it, and she was often flustered, because, she didn't share the same sentiment. But this just felt natural, the next step in their relationship. "I love you too Harm."

'When we finally kiss goodnight
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight
All the way home I'll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we're still goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!'
