A few hours later they wake up.Harm looks at Mac, she looks so beautiful even laying there with her hair all messed up.
Harm kinda rolls to the side so he could hold her in his arms. Then he kisses her forehead. Mac kisses his cheek.Did you get

access at her neck.He looks at her and then says well I think we may want to get outta bed sometime so we can eat. He kisses
her a few times.Just then, Mac's stomach growls.They both laugh.You have to feed me now sailor. Oh don't worry I am getting

walks into the bullpen. Mac screams out. HARM! Sweetie, are you okay? He is looking at her his knees shaking not

glances around the back of the chair. The timer had started. He had one hour to get her out of there. Harm looks at her
just sitting there in her robe. He took his hand and was rubbing her legs. Hey it is fine okay the admiral is gonna be here

The lead officer of the bomb squad looks to Harm and AJ. I'll need you to leave and go across the room.Mac looks at
Harm. Don't you leave this building without me. No Harm says I am not leaving my fiance.The lead officer looks at Harm. I
don't care if you're the President of the United States, you need to be across the room.We'll leave the door open so you can
see her. No he says I am not leaving I am staying right here.He leans over and kisses her.Then gives the oficer a glassy stare.
The officer nods. Mac looks at Harm and doesn't take her eyes off him.It is gonna be okay we have many things to cash
in on. Okay sweetie I am gonna be right here.The bomb squad takes the bomb off of Mac and the minute she's free she
flies in Harm's arms.Okay okay he says they both fall into the floor his knees were shaking so bad he could hold her weight
and his up.They sit there just for a little while and then they slowly get up and go back to the apartment.Okay me and
you are going to go over to Jens and tell them we are back.Mac nods. Don't let me go.Oh don't worry. They go to the
door and knock then open the door. Jen and a dark haired boy is making out on the couch. Hello Harm says. Jen stops and turns
around. Harm. Mac. I...uh...I... Harm just gives her a look. Where are the girls? Um go on it is fine
your house. The girls are asleep. They are still a little worn out.Okay we are going to be back at my apartment, um just wanted

on the bed.He looks at her I am never going to let you go again.Mac nods. I won't let you. Can you just stay here
with me and hold me?Of course but how about that spaghetti first?Mac shakes her head.I'm not all that hungry anymore.I just
need to sleep.Okay he crawls into bed beside her and snuggles up to her. Suddenly Mac starts crying.He looks down at her and
then starts to wipe her tears away. he doesn't say anything at all. Mac wraps her arms around Harm and holds on for dear life.He
reaches downs and kisses her. Then he says I know sweetie just let it out.Mac cries herself to sleep. During the night,
she starts tossing and turning. Harm wraps his arms around her and just holds her. Mac slowly settles down and falls
back to sleep. He kisses her neck and then when he just starts to fall asleep the phone rings and it is Webb.He jumps up to
get it.Hello? Harm, you may have gotten her this time, but next time you won't be so lucky. Webb hangs up the
phone. Harm puts the phone back on the cradle and holds Mac tighter. Harm looks around. He then gets up go to the door takes
his keys and locks the door behind him. he knocks on Jens door.Jen answers the door. Harm, is Mac okay? She looked
really frazzled earlier.Yeah I am sorry about earlier. Do you mind if I come in for a minute, then he looks up and sees the
dark haired man sitting in the kitchen. He then says nevermind, Um just keep your door locked tonight we will talk in the
morning. When Harm gets back he unlocks the door and starts in the house he starts into the bedroom and he notices there is
a gun pointed at him. Mac sweetie its just me. Mac slowly sets the gun down and flies into his arms. When I woke up
you weren't here.I know I went to tell Jen to keep her door locked cause Webb is on a rampage. Why didn't you just call Jen?
It was Webb that got me? Yes it was Webb he called and said the next time I wouldn't be so lucky. I didn't wanna wake
the girls up. I am sorry, hey why don't you take a nice hot bath and I will make you something to eat.Mac nods. Come

be right there.Mac nods and goes to the bathroom to get the water running.Ham goes into the kitchen and puts some noddles
in the water and starts to boil it again. He goes to the bedroom and pick up the little box with the earrings in it. He walks
into the bathroom and leans down by Mac and says here.Mac takes the box. She opens it up. Harm, these are beautiful.
But I don't deserve them. After all I got myself into this mess with Webb. Yes sweetie you do deserve them. He leans
over and kisses her. I am gonna go check on the food and I will be right back.Harm comes right back. Okay that will be done
in about a half hour why don't you soke till then. I am going to go call the admiral. Okay. But don't leave me too long.

on the back of the neck, back.Mac nods. Harm, how am I going to be able to trust Webb again? You aren't and neither
am I. We aren't going to have anything to do with him. Mac nods. Good. I don't ever want him anywhere near us
again. Do you think we can get something ordering him to stay away from us and the girls?I don't know the admiral said
he would take care of everything. He wants you and me to take a week off, so we can plan the wedding and you can
rest.Mac nods. Okay. Can we do it tonight so I can get my mind off of everything? What exactly would you like to do?

for her hand and gets her out he hands her a towel to dry off. Mac stands up and Harm wraps the towel around her. He
lifts her in his arms. Then he carries her into the bedroom. What would you like to put on a t-shirt or do you want pjs? Jammies

and I will bring it to you.Mac nods. Thanks sweetie. yep He comes back with her plate. He starts to hand it ot her but
then he notices tears streaming down her cheeks.Mac looks up and sees Harm. He sets the plate down and then he sets on the
bed by her. Mac do you think talking will help? I dunno sweetie. I just want this to be over. I just want
to forget about it.Okay I understand this why don't you go over to Jen's I need to go do something.Mac shakes her head.
Don't leave me. I won't leave you I promise. I just thought maybe if I went to see Webb I could handle this.No.
Don't give Webb the satisfaction. Just leave him be.But I don't want him to ever hurt you again. But if you don't wan't
me to go I won't. He leans down and kisses her a few times.He won't hurt me as long as you are around to protect me.Okay.He
kisses her a few more times. You are so beautiful not to mention smart.If I was smart I wouldn't have left the door cracked.Mac
it is okay you figured I'd be right back. I would have done the same thing. Listen... *kiss*...to...*kiss*....me....*kiss*.

in it.He hands her the cup her its diet coke.Mac nods. Thanks. Love you. Yeah, me too he leans over and kisses
her.Mac kisses him and leans back on the bed.Will you play for me? And I mean the guitar.um sure let me go get it he
comes back with it in tow. I always love it when you sing to me.Really? He starts to play then sing and he looks at Mac and
keeps singing, He hears a knock at the door. He sets the guitar down and goes to see who is at the door. He takes his gun
off the table just for good measure. He opens the door to see whom it is it was Jen. Jen is something wrong? Jen shakes her
head. Nothing is wrong. I was just making sure Mac is okay. Chloe saw you earlier and wanted me to make sure.Yeah
she is fine wanna come in, she is in the bedroom. Jen kinda looks confused for a second then she sees the gun again. As she
comes in Harm closes the door , whom was your friend he kinda looked familar from a distance and from the back?Jen blushes.
It's Mikey Roberts. Mac sees Jen. Jen, come on in. Harm gives her a look really? Oh is he still there
I would hope so since you left the girls alone? I'm sorry I didn't have the right to ask you that? Jen shrugs it off.It's
okay Harm.He's still there. Okay thats probably a good idea, cause webb is on a rampage. He may wanna spend the night?Jen
turns even redder. Harm, you're embarrsing the poor girl.Jen I am sorry I didn't mean it like that.I meant cause Webb
had already got Mac tonight once and I don't want him to hurt you or the girls. Mikey is a nice guy and he isn't like that
any way. Well I don't know about him? But I know your not like that.Jen nods. He's a lot like me. He will just
stay in my bed with me since the girls are asleep in one room and we'll just lay there in each others arms.Mac winks at Harm.Sound
familar?He said Yeah but I know what happens after that now too. He laughs sorry Jen. Um I just meant so somebody would be
over there incase Webb were to show up. I don't think he will tonight. He grins at her, Hey Jen it is absolutely none of our
businsess what you do at your house.But thanks for the heads up. If you ever need a night alone the girls can come over or
you could come over here.Jen nods.Thanks Harm.I'll get back over there. Webb knows not to mess with me.Yeah I am sorry about
the sense of humor it's not very funny tonight. Okay night see you in the morning. Oh and the Mikey thing stays between us!Harm
walks Jen to the door and locks up tight. He goes back in the bedroom with Mac. Harm looks at how she looked in the
pj's. Harm reaches down and rubs her legs then her stomach. Mac sighs and snuggles down in the pillow and slowly falls asleep.
Harm picks up the plate and then goes to the kitchen. When he comes back Mac is laying there looking at him. Mac smiles. You
stopped. Oh I am sorry, he sits down by her and starts rubbing her arm. Mac smiles.Thanks sweetie.You are too good to me.
Yeah he looks at her and then kisses her. He was just messing around and was tugging on the top of her pants.Mac suddenly
freezes. Harm lets go and looks at her, I am sorry was just messing around with you.I know sweetie.Normally I would like it,
but after what happened, I don't want to right now.I was just joking I am sorry he leans down and places a few kisses on her
lips then a few on the side of her neck. Honey, it's okay. It's just me. I'm just a little apprehensive.Okay he said as he
slowly ran his hand down her side to her stomach.Then he just started rising her shirt up a little to reveal a little skin
and he then took his hand and rubbed her stomach for a couple of seconds before he had realized that he had moved his hand
up quite a lot to her breasts, When he realized what he had done he looked at Mac and she looked like she was gonna cry. Her
body felt rigid. Harm stops. Did Clay touch you there? Is that why you are tensing up on me? Harm repeats again.
Mac did Clay touch you? Mac turns her head and starts crying softly. She nods.What happened and why didn't you tell
me?He came up behind me I think and grabbed me right there and just started tenderly touching it. I didn't want you to leave
me.He looks at her quite intently , why didn't you tell me you know I would never leave you. He removes his hand and brings
it back down to her stomach. Did he touch you anywhere else at all mac, I wanna know now. He raises his voice just a little.
Then he says did he rape you?I know you wouldn't in my heart, but my mind was telling me not to tell you. Mac shakes
her head.No he never got that far. And he didn't touch me anywhere else.Are you sure? I love you as long as you didn't
facilitate it I don't care. I would never leave you if he did it but all I know is he is so dead.Of course I didn't facilitate
it. I was trying to get away from him, but he had a firm grip on me and I couldn't get free. Don't hurt him.
He's already hurt us enough by doing that to me. Mac I can't live with this knowing he touched you and I didn't do anything.
I am sorry I knew you didn't.Harm, just forget about it. Let's just worry about the wedding. Mac I don't know how are
you ever going to get past this I just have my hand on your stomach and you are tense.Just keep your hand there and I'll get
used to it again.
