"Good morning, ma'am!" Petty Officer Coates chirped.
"Good morning, Coates," Mac replied, smiling. "Is he busy?"
"About as busy as always," Jen replied. She leaned toward the colonel and lowered her voice. "I think Mr. Webb is bored with bothering Commander Rabb."
Mac laughed. Harm had returned to JAG after she had left. It hadn't taken much to persuade AJ to take him back. After all, he needed at least one of his top lawyers back--even if he hadn't set foot in a courtroom in a year.
She smiled as she thought of the look of utter shock on Harm's face when she and AJ had let him in on their secret. They had only told five people--Harm, Sturgis, Harriet, Bud, and Jen. The rest of the staff thought she had transferred to Naval Intelligence.
"Believe me, Jen--Clay will never get bored with bothering Harm." She winked at the yeoman and opened the door to AJ's office.
"Damn it, Webb! When I agreed to this, I didn't think you'd be trying to traumatize my visitors!" AJ growled. Mac bit her lip to keep from laughing.
"A little intimidation now and then never hurt, AJ," the ghostly form of Clayton Webb responded. He had died five months prior, in a battle at Hogwarts School. Mac wasn't sure why he hadn't passed on to the other side, but she had a sneaking suspicion it had something to do with Remus Lupin. He and the werewolf had been... very close in the days leading up to the attack.
AJ rubbed his eyes. "Just go away, Webb," he said.
"Not yet," Mac interrupted. AJ opened his eyes and smiled.
"What are you doing here, darlin'? I thought you had a meeting today with your boss."
Mac smiled slightly. "I did--but not the one you're thinking of." She sat in a chair in front of the desk and crossed her legs. "Secretary McGonagall Flooed me before I left the house today."
"And?" AJ pressed as Mac paused.
"We had a nice chat..." A grin spread across Mac's face. "You're looking at the new Law Enforcement Liaison to the Secretary of Magic."
"That's great, Sarah!" Clay exclaimed. "Congratulations!"
AJ looked puzzled. "Law Enforcement Liaison?"
Mac nodded. "A program set up after you left. It helps witches and wizards who no longer desire to work in Magical Law Enforcement or the Aurory and places them in Muggle law enforcement and the military. Both Clay and I participated in it."
"It's not a very well-known position outside of these agencies, but it's one with a lot of power and responsibility. There are more of us transfers than you'd think," Clay volunteered.
"Well, that is wonderful, Mac. Congratulations." AJ walked around the desk and dropped a kiss on her mouth.
"And it means I'll be in the country from now on. So I really will be home tonight." She smiled at the spark in AJ's eyes.
"Ah..." Clay cleared his throat. "If anyone's looking for me, I'll be in the courtroom..." He vanished.
"You said something about showing me where I was wanted?" AJ said in a low voice. Mac shivered.
"I said tonight, AJ. Right now," she smiled, slipping away from him, "you have work to do. And so do I." She gave him an apologetic look.
"You're right--I do. I have a meeting with SecNav today. You know, he's been a lot nicer since our little trip to Scotland."
Mac snorted. "Probably because he knows McGonagall likes me, and he doesn't want to get on your bad side."
"Works for me." Mac laughed at AJ's response.
"I have to go. Love you."
"Love you too, darlin'." Mac slipped out of the office, a warm feeling in her chest. No matter how many times he said that, it never lost its effect.
