Mac Taylor hated going to the doctor’s office. Absolutely did not like it. But since Stella is basically threatening his life if he does not go to one to see about this cold he had, he might as well have stayed at home. He wanted to work, but he knew better than to risk his second’s wrath. So he came to the doctor.
As he finished up his paperwork, he looked around at other people that were scattered around the waiting room. Mothers were trying to keep their children occupied as they waited for the pediatrician that also practiced in the office; adults reading outdated magazines or talking on their phones; but the one that interested him most was the woman sitting across from him. To his surprise, she was reading an encyclopedia! He had never met a person who would read an encyclopedia. 
Sensing that she was being watched, she looked up and Mac could not help but realize that she was a beautiful woman. She had long dark brown hair that seemed to compliment her tanned skin. Her pale green eyes sparkled in the light; but it was her smile that captured his eye. That smile seemed to lighten his heart and make him happy. He quickly looked away and got up, taking his paperwork to the reception desk. The older woman behind the desk took it and said, “The nurse will call you back when it’s time.”
He nodded his head in acknowledgement and went back to his seat. Not paying attention to the woman across from him, he held his head at the sudden dizziness and coughed. “Sounds like a bad cold,” said a musical voice.
Realizing that it was the woman, he looked up to see that she was holding out tissue paper. Smiling slightly, he took it and replied, “Am I that obvious?”
She laughed and said, “Just a little. So you the latest victim of this cold going around?”
“Most likely,” he answered as he sneezed. “Mac Taylor,” he added, “I would shake your hand, but I don’t think you want this cold.”
She laughed. “Stephanie Ryan,” she greeted back.
“What are you here for, Miss Ryan?”
“Please, it’s Stephanie. Only my students call me ‘Miss Ryan’. And as to what I am in for, I am just getting my quarterly check-up,” she replied. They sat in comfortable silence for a moment before she asked, “So what do you do for a living, Mr. Taylor?”
He chuckled. No one ever called him ‘Mr. Taylor’. “It’s Mac. As for my job, I’m a detective with the NYPD and supervisor of the crime lab,” he replied.
Stephanie raised an eyebrow. “A detective, huh? You know, now that you mention it, you do look familiar. You’re the detective who single-handily stopped the mob or someone from stealing its cash or drugs back from the department,” she said, frustration evident in her voice. “Damn it, I wish I can remember which.”
“Don’t try,” he mumbled. Mac really did not like be reminded of that. They keep saying that he was a hero when he was not. Or at least he did not feel like one.
Curious, Stephanie asked, “Don’t like the ‘hero’ status, I assume?” When he did not answer, she just smiled at him. “Fine, I won’t mention it again; but…” That was all she got out before alarms began to sound.
Mac and Stephanie looked up at the blaring sound as a nurse ran into the waiting room. “Sorry, ladies and gentlemen,” she said, panic evident in her voice, “but we need you to evacuate the building immediately!”
Flashing his badge, Mac asked, “What happened?”
“We don’t know. Something happened upstairs in one of the chemistry offices. Whatever it was caused someone to pull the fire alarm.”
Thinking for a moment, Mac then ordered, “Get everyone outside and call the police.” The nurse nodded and did as she was told. He then grabbed his coat and turned to Stephanie. “Come on,” he said as he grabbed her hand and dragged her with him.

I know. I don't think any of them have a normal day off.
