Let the Games Begin
It was nearly eight-thirty by the time they were home again. Casey fixed the stir-fry, and she and Daniel sat at the counter to eat. Emily was sitting happily in her high chair, banging a spoon against the tray.
"I think I understand why you went on…that…mission. Sometimes the end results do justify the means."
He smiled, but shook his head. "I don’t think I agree with that. We did get good intel, yes. We were able to use it to defeat Anubis, yes. I nearly lost you and Emily forever. Not even close to an equitable trade."
Casey smiled and leaned over to kiss his cheek. "Well, if you had just let me know what was going on, it would have made a big difference."
"I know, babe."
"You realize I’m not going to let you sleep the entire time I’m gone. I’ll be yakking at you non-stop just to make sure you’re still there," she said.
He chuckled. "I want you to stay in constant contact with me. So I know you’re okay." He looked sideways at her. "You don’t really think he’s cute, do you?"
She bit back a smile. "If you can get passed the Goa’uld thing, he’s not bad," she replied innocently. She almost laughed out loud at the surprised look on his face. "Although he’ll never be as handsome or as sexy as a certain archaeologist that I know."
"Archaeologist, huh? Must be a boring guy, always digging up the past. Probably gets lost in his work for hours and neglects his wife and daughter," he said softly.
"Boring? Doctor Daniel Jackson? Not on your life, fella. He knows how to dance dirty. He’s passionate about his work, and yes, he does get ‘lost’ in it. He has never neglected his wife or his daughter." She leaned toward him and smiled. "And he’s the most incredible lover a woman could ever dream of having."
He grinned. "Do tell."
She nodded, her eyes sparkling. "Absolute wild man in bed. Trust me. You wouldn’t believe the things his wife is willing to do for him. You’d be shocked, I’m sure."
By now Daniel was laughing. "I don’t know, it would take a lot to shock me."
Casey giggled. "After living with me, that’s not a surprise."
He laughed harder. "God, I love you, Angel."
"Love you too, sweetheart."
Emily was beginning to squeal, demanding attention. She pointed a finger at Daniel. "Daddee!" As usual whenever she did that, he picked her up, snuggled her against him.
"You have your Daddy trained well, don’t you, Baby?" Casey grinned, smoothing the fine hair on Emily’s head. She started gathering the dishes. "Just sit there, my heart. Hold your daughter. I think I can manage to clean up the kitchen alone this once."

She was sitting cross-legged on the bed, brushing her hair when he came into the room. She smiled up at him, watched as he undressed. "You are the most beautiful man I have ever seen," she said softly.
He looked over at her, his cheeks tinged pink. "You’re just saying that because you love me," he replied.
She shook her head. "No, my heart. I’ve seen how women look at you. I’ve watched the neighborhood women when you’re out mowing the lawn without a shirt. They all need drool bibs."
He chuckled. "I think you’re imagining things. If I please you, that’s all that matters to me." He sat down beside her.
She wrapped her arms around his neck. "Oh, my love, you more than please me," she whispered. "You're…magnificent, and I’m so…honored…that you love me."
His eyes burned with love, and desire; he lowered his head to kiss her. The gentle touch of her lips against his was enough to send the Fire roaring through his body. His tongue sought entrance to her mouth, he groaned when she parted her lips. He kissed her until the need to taste her skin could no longer be ignored. He pushed her gently to her back, kissed her cheeks, her jaw, her throat. He worked his mouth and tongue over the tender flesh behind her ear, down to her shoulder, to her collarbone. His hand was already moving from one breast to the other, holding, touching, massaging the warm, firm flesh; his fingers pulling at her hard nipples.
Her skin was on fire from his touch, her hands on his back, pulling him closer, her fingers kneading the muscles beneath them. He was pushing her teddy out of the way, his mouth on her breasts, every sweet caress echoing between her legs. He had built the fire so rapidly that she could not wait any longer to feel him inside her. "Please, take me now," she whispered.
The words brought a shiver to his spine. He pulled the teddy from her body, positioned himself over her, parted her legs with his knee. She wrapped herself around him as he slowly entered her, watching her eyes as he did so. The green depths darkened with desire, her love shining in them as well. He began the ancient dance of love, moving slowly, deeply, grinding his hips against hers with every thrust.
Her hips rose to meet his, their rhythm setting off a blaze of pleasure in her body. He filled her so fully, so completely, the feeling so wonderful that it nearly brought tears to her eyes. She could feel her orgasm building…slowly…deliciously. He continued to grind his hips against her, watching her face as she began to breathe faster. Her thighs began to quiver, and she could feel the whimper in her throat. "Oh...oh…" she whispered, just before her whimper became a full-throated moan.
"That’s it Angel, give it to me," he whispered in her ear. She cried out, her body trembling beneath him; her sweet, warm well contracting in spasms around him.
"Love me, Daniel, fill me with your love," she begged in a soft whisper.
With a groan he began to pound into her, his hips slapping against hers with every thrust. Her fingers were teasing, pulling at his flat nipples, sending flames shooting down his arms, into his raging cock. With a cry he was hurled into oblivion, his body shuddering from the force of his release. He collapsed on top of her, felt her arms go around him, pull him closer. "Love you, Angel," he managed to gasp.
"Love you, sweetheart," she replied, her own breathing hard and fast.
He rolled to his back, pulling her with him, until they were settled in their customary position. He began to run his fingers through her hair, from her scalp to the ends of the silky strands. He could feel her smile against his shoulder. She enjoyed this as much as he did. "So, are you really going to go on this mission?"
She nodded. "Sam and I will be together, and you’ll be there for me. Ba’al is one of the strongest System Lords right now. Better to take him on while we still can. If he wants to talk, we should see what it is he wants to talk about."
He wasn’t happy with her answer. Nor was he surprised. "Angel, I wish you wouldn’t."
She folded her arms on her chest, rested her chin on top of them so she could look at him. "I would have told you the same thing."
"Then I’m going to be there with you."
She smiled. "Of course you are. I told you-"
"No, babe. On his ship. With you."
"I don’t think that’s a good idea."
"I don’t care if you think it’s a good idea or not. Casey, this past year has brought me too damned close to losing you too many times. I can’t go through it again."
"Daniel, do you trust me?"
He hesitated, then sighed. "You know I do, babe."
"If you’re on the Phoenix, near his ship, if anything goes wrong, you’ll be there. Daniel, I really need to do this. I sort of started the whole thing to begin with."
"Something about jealousy, wasn’t it?" he grinned.
"It’s not my fault. I’m so crazy in love with you, whenever I see you…fawning…over another woman, I just…get really pissy."
He chuckled. "I was not fawning over her."
"Wanna see the security tapes?" she smiled.
"That bad, huh?"
"Let’s just say that if she had wiggled her butt once more, you’d have been humping her like a dog in heat."
"Not a very complimentary description."
"Maybe not. But it’s an accurate one."
Daniel tightened his arms around her. "What do I have to do to prove that I love you, that there is no way that any other woman could ever take your place?"
"Keep telling me?" she asked softly.
He smiled. "Everyday, if that’s what it takes."
"And stay away from brunettes."
He laughed. "Okay. I’ll try. You’ll have to explain to Oma and Carly why-"
She pinched his side.
"Ow!" He chuckled. "Love you, Angel."
"Love you, my heart."
"Go to sleep now, babe. We have to get up early in the morning," he said softly. He helped her arrange the blankets over them, unwilling to let her move off of him. He smiled when he felt her body totally relax against him. He could feel her breathing slowly, steadily. He closed his eyes. And tried not to think about all the things that could go wrong on the upcoming mission.
