Hey guys, sorry it's taken me so long to update, have been pretty stuck for inspiration, not sure I like this update much but it's ok haha xxx
The next morning Mac woke up with the sun streaming through the windows, he rubbed his eyes to help himself wake up. He looked over at the clock and saw it was 7am; he'd have to get up and go to work soon.
"Good morning." He heard Jo mumble from next to him.
"Morning beautiful." He replied leaning over and kissing her shoulder then making his way up to her ear, taking in her decadent smell.
"What's the time?" Jo asked, sighing under Mac's kisses.
"Just gone 7, I better get going if I'm going to get back to mine and get changed and get to work on time." Mac said glumly.
"Oh, can't we just call in sick and stay in bed together all day?" Jo asked, sidling up to him and stroking his bare chest.
"I wish we could Jo but that would be not only very unprofessional but also very obvious to everyone that we are both off don't you think?" He said running his hand through her hair.
"Mmm maybe you're right, but maybe we could just say we've both come down with the flu or something, it's a perfectly good excuse and entirely possible for two people in the same office to get the flu at the same time." Jo said rambling.
"I know I know, but as your boss I need to remain impartial, no matter how much I want to stay in bed with you all day." Mac said going to get out of the bed.
"And as your second in command I'll make it worth your while…" Jo said teasingly pulling him back down.
"I'm sure you would…but unfortunately we have to get up because Ellie also needs walking to school, so the chances of us staying in bed all day are very slim." Mac said bending down and kissing her. The kiss was meant to just be to pacify her but as she pulled him down on top of her and deepened the kiss, he could feel himself giving in.
"Mmm, are you sure I can't change your mind?" Jo said as she ran her hands over his back.
"Keep doing what you're doing and it may just work." Mac said kissing her deeply again, moaning into the kiss and running his hand up her thigh.
"Mom!" Ellie called from the kitchen
"Ok I'm up!" Jo sighed as Mac rolled off of her and laid back on the bed.
"You take the shower in here and I'll get in after you." Jo said walking round the bed, kissed him one more time and then walked out of the bedroom in search of Ellie.
"Yes oh beautiful daughter of mine, why did you shout my name?" Jo said as she walked into the kitchen.
"There's a huuuuge spider over there!" Ellie said as she sat on the worktop.
"Oh my god are you serious?" Jo said leaping up onto it next to her.
"Unfortunately I am, he is so big he looks like he's walking around in boots! MAC!" Ellie screamed.
"What's going on?" Mac said as he ran in, luckily he had the sense to put a t-shirt on before he went in search of what was wrong.
"There's a huge spider over there!" Jo screamed pointing towards the dining room table.
"Ok, calm down I'll get a glass and a piece of paper and get him out of your way." Mac said as he went on a hunt for the mysterious spider. He found it and gently put it in the glass, before carrying it over to the window and gently throwing it out.
"There…now my little damsels in distress I need to jump in the shower." He said helping them down off the counter top.
"Thanks Mac I hate spiders!" Ellie said smiling at him.
"You're welcome; I have to admit he was pretty big!" Mac said chuckling at Ellie's scared face then left the kitchen and headed to the shower.
"Well I'm glad Mac was here, if it had been left to us to get rid of that thing, we'd have been here all day!" Jo laughed as he poured herself a coffee.
"Yeah it was pretty cool, you know I'm ok with you and Mac being together you know Mom, don't feel like you two have to hide from me, Tyler's cool too." Ellie said munching on an apple.
"When did you get so grown up?" Jo said hugging her.
"I've always been like this. Some of the girls' Moms in my year are dating guys, but none of them are as cool as Mac so I'm all for it!" Ellie said smiling sweetly.
"Well thank you baby girl, but Mac and I are just taking it slow, no one at work knows about us, we will tell them just not yet ok?" Jo said sitting down at the table with Ellie.
"Ok, right I better go and get ready for school." Ellie said kissing Jo on the cheek then walking towards her room.
It was now lunchtime and Mac and Jo had been trying their best to avoid each other all day, because they knew that if they saw each other or were along together they wouldn't be able to help themselves. Jo was in the lab with Danny and Lindsey and Mac was down in the morgue with Sid.
"So what do we have here Sid?" Mac asked him.
"Unknown 25 year old male, Caucasian with a blunt force trauma to the side of the head." Sid explained to Mac.
"Is that our COD?" Mac asked standing next to the body.
"Unfortunately not, that would make my job way too easy, no COD was this stab wound to the abdomen." Sid said clicking his glasses together and showing Mac the fatal wound.
"Angle of the wound suggests our murderer was standing over him, do you have an idea of time of death?" Mac asked looking at the body more closely.
"Well the body temp when he came in suggests it was sometime late last night, early this morning, but what is strange is that this wound on his head is older, I'd say at least a week old going by the pattern of bruising, and it was some blow to the head that's for sure!" Sid explained.
"Hmm so our victim may have had a meeting with the murderer before his death, and maybe he or she was unsuccessful the first time round, so came back again to finish of the job?" Mac said trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together.
"Looks that way yes; it's definitely one possibility anyway." Sid said walking away.
Mac stayed down in the morgue looking over the body for a few more minutes before he made his way back up to his office. As he reached the floor he needed he glanced over at his office and saw Jo was in there waiting to talk to him. He took a deep breath before he walked in.
"Hey Jo, everything ok?" Mac asked her.
"Yeah fine, I think we may have an ID on out body in the morgue." Jo said sitting down on the chair opposite Mac.
"Great, who is he?" Mac asked sitting down.
"Well he's a missing person; his prints came up on the system, Jake Thompson. His parents reported him missing six years ago, he just upped and left after a family argument when he was 19 and was never seen again…poor kid, he wasn't much younger than Tyler, I can't imagine what his parents have been going through all these years." Jo said sadly.
"Ok well we need to get them in unfortunately and get him identified; do we know anything else about him?" Mac asked her, getting lost in her eyes.
"Nothing more than what Sid has told us about his injuries, he had no priors no arrests, nothing, on paper he was a good kid." Jo said sighing.
"Ok well keep on it, we may be able to get something from his parents, see if you can find out what this argument was about, it may lead us to something. Mac concluded, before they both gave each other a knowing smile then Jo left.
As Jo was walking away her phone beeped in her pocket, she got it out and smiled when she saw it was from Mac.
To: Jo Danville

Meet me at Delayneys at 1pm for lunch…my treat
Jo turned around to face Mac's office; she smiled at him when he looked up at her. A mile that not only said she would meet him, but that she also couldn't wait to be alone with him.
