After The Singularity
"So Jack, what did you think?" Danny asked, as they walked through the
"About what Danny boy?" Jack asked him.
"All this Cassandra stuff. Do you believe Sam didn't want her?" Danny asked
Jack, as he stroked the dog in the soldier's arms.
"I do not." Teal'C commented.
"I don't either Jack. You should have seen her in Cassy's room when we
found that bomb. She was crying, a lot. She felt sorry for the poor kid."
Danny remembered the awful sight of Sam crying, and Cassy coughing.
"Perhaps Captain Carter was especially fond of Cassandra because the same
thing happened to her." Teal'C thought.
"What? Having her whole planet wiped out and being used as a bomb to
destroy us?" Jack stopped.
"No, I meant that her mother died when she was but a child also, perhaps
she felt sorry for Cassandra because she knew what it was like to loose a
parent at a young age." Teal'C answered him.
"Yeah, I guess. I mean she did stay down there, that shows she likes her,
and she seems really attached to her. She isn't meant to be though, and she
knows that." Jack told the guys, and then they started walking
back to the swings.
"She does. I know that she does. God it scared me when she went back down!"
Daniel announced, with relief in his voice.
"And me." Jack agreed.
"As was I." Teal'C said.
"She doesn't want Janet to take her." Daniel looked at Sam, who was not too
far away now.
"I think you might be right Danny." Jack nodded.
"I am right, aren't I?" Daniel asked the dog Jack was carrying. Jack made
the dog's head nod.
"I have never seen Captain Carter smile as much as she has this afternoon
"Me neither. I asked Hammond if Sam could take Cass, I really did, but
Janet was going to be a better parent.
Not because Sam wouldn't be...but because she's off world so much. Janet
works long shifts, but at least she's at home more." O'Neill ran up to
Cassy, and gave her the dog back. Then he talked to Sam, but Daniel and
Teal'C couldn't hear what he was saying, because they were still standing
in the same place they had been a minute ago.
"He's got a point Teal'C." Daniel thought.
"Yes." Teal'C agreed.
