Whispers in the Dark

Chapter 5

They were geared up and ready to go to PX7 499, the site of the ruins found by SG-6. Casey looked up at him and smiled. "I had a wonderful dream about you last night," she whispered as they walked hand in hand to the ‘gate room.

"Tell me," he said softly.

"I was in a room, it was black and dark and terrifying. I could hear something, well, several ‘somethings’ breathing and making these horrible growling noises. I knew that they were going to get medefeat mekill me. I was so scared. Then you came in, and this light was shining all around you, and you told me to close my eyes, that it was all going to be okay. So I did, and I heard fighting, listened to sounds of a really intense battle. Then you were putting your arms around me, telling me that it was over, that I was safe, and then you led me out into sunshine, and home." Her eyes were shining with love when she looked up at him.

He managed to suppress the shiver that went up his spine. Her unconscious mind had dealt with what he had done. He raised her hand to his lips. "I’ll be there anytime you need me, babe. All you have to do is call for me."

"Love you, sweetheart," she said, her voice full of emotion.

"Love you too, Angel."

Jack wasn’t going on this mission, Sam was due any day. When the time came, Duncan would send a message, and Casey would return to Gamma long enough to be with her best friend during the delivery.

The ruins were indeed extensive. Daniel went through what had been a sizable town, and tried to find the areas of most importance. They would start there.

Casey was sitting cross-legged on the ground, carefully wiping dust and dirt away from the bottom of a tall monument. Daniel was working higher up. "Uh, think you could do the other side for awhile?" she asked, wiping dust and dirt from her face.

He looked down at her and grinned. "I don’t know, you look kinda sexy with your face all dirty like that."

She giggled. "I don’t feel sexy with my face all dirty like this."

He leaned over and carefully wiped the dust away with the soft brush he had been using. "Oh my god," he said softly.


"I’ve just made the most incredible discovery of all time," he said, a smile on his face.

"Oh, yeah? What is it?"

"A living, breathing goddess," he replied, just before he leaned over and kissed her.

"Love you, Doctor Jackson," she said, smiling.

"Love you, Mrs. Jackson."

Tony wandered over with two steaming mugs of coffee. "Hey, guys. Major Parker says we should call it a day. We’re losing light, and we don’t want to burn up all the batteries too fast."

Daniel worked his shoulders and nodded, accepting the coffee and sipping gratefully. "We’re on our way." He helped Casey to her feet, and they walked arm in arm to where the group was camping for the night.

Casey grinned and pulled her CD player from her pack, Texas and Tony both supplied speakers. The three of them entertained the others with their lip-syncing abilities, bringing hoots of laughter as they danced around one another. Daniel stood up and took her into his arms, giving the group a taste of dirty dancing.

When they snuggled together in their sleeping bags later, Casey rolled to her back to pull him down for a kiss. "I won’t do more than that," she said softly.

"That’s more than enough to start the fire," he grinned.

"I just wanted to thank you."

"For what?"

"For fighting whatever demons those were. And for dancing with me."

He smiled. "Anytime, Angel. For both."

She snuggled against him, felt his arousal. "Oh, sweetheart, I’m sorry!"

"For what?"

She rubbed her hip against him. "That. I think I can take care of it, safely."

He laughed softly. "How?"

She rolled to her back again, wrapped her hand around him and began to stroke him gently.

With a low moan he pushed her tee shirt up over her breasts and began to suckle. His hand moved down between her thighs.

It didn’t take long until she was whimpering her release. When he was ready, she slid down and took him into her mouth, taking everything he had to give her. With a sigh, she curled against him and went to sleep.

So much for refraining on missions, he thought with a grin. He wasn’t going to complain.

The next morning the call that they had all been waiting on came through. Sam was in labor. Daniel walked her to the gate. "I’ll be back as soon as the baby is born," Casey said.

"Get some sleep first, Angel," he said.

She shook her head stubbornly. "I can sleep here." She wouldn’t say it, but being away from him still terrified her. As long as they were together, on the same planet, she was fine.

Daniel smiled. He was aware of her fears. "Okay, babe. See you in a few hours." He kissed her, then watched her walk through the event horizon. With another smile, he went back to work.
