Chapter 10: In For The Long Haul

Mac's POV:

Two weeks have passed since we admitted our love for each other. Some people may think rushing is bad, but if you love each other things should not go slow, right?

This is the first morning I have woken up in my bed, and Stella wasn't present. I usually just slept with her at her place. I was going to see Stella at her place. But she told me she would come to my place, and she had something very important to talk about. I don't know if I should be worried or not.

My training has been finished, and my first day of working in the NYPD is tomorrow is six in the morning.

Don had handed me my badge yesterday, my gun not being given to me until two weeks time.

As soon as I was fixing to fall back asleep, there was a hard banging on my bedroom door.

"Come in Reed!" I shook my head, and soon Reed enters with a big smile on his face.

"I hope there's a good reason for you to disrupt my sleep."

"Oh there is Mac, trust me," he smirks, quickly sitting on my bed.

"Are you going to tell me or am I going to guess?"

"Guess first."

"That girl you met at the diner asked you out?" I guessed.

"Nope," Reed smiles.

"I guessed now tell me," I frown.

"Okay. I got a job..."


"I'm a journalist for... the New York Times."

"The real New York Times?"

"No Mac, the fake one. Yes the real one. I applied there last week and they're letting me be on the writing staff."

"What are you going to write about?"

"Um... I give advice to people. I know it sounds lame, but me Reed Garrett is actual going to be in the New York Times."

"That's great Reed."

"Yeah, it's always been my dream to write in the Times."

"I thought your dream was to be a fireman?" I shook my head.

"Well, that didn't go over to well," Reed smirks. "So also now that your up, Stella called and said she was on her way."

"Thanks," I grin, stepping out of the bed, ruffling up the boy's hair.

"Hey Mac, someday your going to have to stop that," Reed offers me a pout.

"Your how old Reed?" I tease him and then go out into the living room. Reed follows and sat next to me on the couch.

"So you and Stella are pretty involved with each other, aren't you?" Reed smiles, acting innocent.

"I'm not going to talk to you about this."

And I was saved as soon as I heard a knocking on the door. I grin, and quickly went to go open it. Stella appears, her lips showing off a sexy smile.

I let her inside, with a smile, and then started kissing her. She felt so good in my arms. I pull back.

"You are amazingly sexy," I smirk, kissing her neck.

"Get a room you two," Reed made himself known.

I pull back and look at the boy.

"Don't you have any other important stuff to do?"

"I'll find something, because I don't need to see no make out session."

"Good," I smile. He frowned and quickly rushed to his room, closing the door.

As soon as I know he's gone I continue kissing Stella's neck.

"Wanna go to the bedroom?" I asked, getting my hopes up.

But as soon as I mentioned that a frown came upon her face. I frown. "What's wrong?" I ask, placing my hands on her cheeks.

She takes my hand and leads me to the couch, she slowly sat down, putting her hands in her lap.

"I... um have something to tell you. All morning I tried to get out of my head that you'll be mad, I know you love me, but when I tell you this and you leave me... I'll try to deal with it."

"I'm not leaving you not now, not even in ten years. I'm with you for the long haul. Whatever it is, we can be strong about it."

"Mac. I'm pregnant," she sighs. "With your child."

"Pregnant?" I asked, just making sure I heard her right.

"I knew you wouldn't want this," she frowns, water that build up in her eyes finally fell.

I quickly pull her into a hug. "Stella..." I frown. "Don't do this. I love you. I wasn't expecting it is all."

After a few seconds, I hear the crying stop, and she pulls back, wiping her eyes.

"I love you too," she gulps.

"I am going to be there for the baby Stella. It's our child. Even if it wasn't I would still help you take care of it."

"You really mean that?" she smiles, slightly.

"I meant every word, including that I love you," I kiss her cheek.

"I don't know what I was so worried about then."

"It's okay. I just want you to know that I'm in a relationship with you for the long haul."

"Thanks Mac. You made me realize how silly I was being about this. I knew you wouldn't leave me," she smiles, pulling me back into a hug.

"I love you Stella Bonasera," I kiss the top of her head.

"I love you too Mac Taylor," she pulls back with a smile. Before I realized it, Stella's lips were on mine. Her tongue enters my mouth, and starts wrestling with mine.

She moans once I tease her neck with my lips and tongue.

"You know what Mac?" she smiles, as she stops my actions.

"What is it?"

"The bedroom sounds good all of a sudden," she grins.

"Are you sure?" I ask.

"I'm positive," she replies, and then kisses me right below the ear.

"Well what are we waiting for?" I ask, picking her up in my arms, and she wraps her arms around my neck. "I love you," I admit again, while kissing on her neck.

"I love you too. Forever and always."

"Wouldn't have said it any better myself," I grin, as I close my bedroom door. As we start our union as a couple, as lovers, and expecting parents. And I admit that I couldn't be happier.
