Comments: I wrote this when I read the end of Ep 7 and the teasers for Ep 8 for Virtual Season 3. This is what I'd like to see happen.

Logan's room

Logan woke up tired, really tired. He glanced at his watch and figured that he'd gotten only three hours of sleep. It had been a long time since he had an experiance like the night before. He had never had anyone wake up and jump hi a second time in the night, let alone a third.

He looked down at the sleeping form curled up in his arms and smiled. Max looked so small and vunerable, although he knew better. Logan wanted nothing more but to fall back into a deep slumber with her, but his mind was awake and sleep didn't want to come. It's wasn't long before Max started to stir and wake up. Logan brushed a strand of hair from har face.

"Good morning my angel." He said softly.

Max's eyes immediatley snapped open. Three questions raced through her mind; 'Where am I?' 'what happened?' 'whose arms am I in?'

Logan felt Max's body tense and his face fell. 'She's gonna run now.' he thought. But memories of the night before came back to her and she relaxed and snuggled into Logan's warm body.

"Good Morning" she replied.

"Sleep well?" Logan asked as she shifted to look at him.

"Yep. You?"

Logan sighed and laid his head back on the pillow, "I've never been so tired in all my life."

"Poor mortal," Max joked, "SO go back to sleep."

"I'm fine."

"You've been tired a lot lately." Max threw him a worried look.

"I'm fine really."

Max didn't beleive him, "Still, I want you to go see Aveta about it"

"Okay" Logan brightened up as he got an idea. "Come with me?"

Max smiled, "Sure." She figured she would walk him to the medical bay and then head to the command center.


Aveta was near the door when Max and Logan arrived. She looked to the couple and a big smile broke out on her face. "Well, I guess congradulations are in order."

Logan tried unsucessfully to hide a grin as Max's face turned bright red.

"Is it that obvious?" Max asked. She hed done her best to not have a JBF'd look when she left Logan's room.

"It will be in a few months." Max's look turned to one of confusion while Logan's became one of total shock.

"Are you sure?" Logan asked excitedly.

"Sure about what?" Max was getting upset that she was being left out of the loop.

Aveta just smiled "So Logan, how have you been feeling?"

"You didn't answer my question." Logan countered.

"And no one's answering mine!" Max was getting impatient.

"We can run a test but I'm 90% sure."

"About what!" Max exclaimed making Aveta cringe. Remembering Aveta's sensitive hearding she quickly added "Sorry."

"You're pregnant Max." Aveta stated simply. "I can tell because your heart rate has elivated and your blood has become more enriched with nutriants."

Logan broke out into a large silly grin. Max dropped into a nearby chair, it was her turn to be in complete shock. Logan's face dropped when she looked up at him. He could tell that she didn't know how to feel about this.

"It's okay Max." He said as he closed the distance between them.

"A baby." Max stated blankly. Logan kneeled down and took Max's hands in his.

"We're going to have a baby." a large smile played over Max's face, Logan mirrored the action.

They were lost in the thought until Aveta broke the moment. "Logan, you still haven't answered my question."

Max broke in before Logan could deny anything. "He's been really tired lately, more that he should be."

Aveta sighed, "I was afraid of this, it's the virus."

Max immediatley jumped up and away from Logan.

Logan looked heartbroken, "So the virus is back?"

"It never left," she explained, "your body just found a way to fight it."

"So what happened?" Asked Max.

"Logan's body was producing enough anti-bodies to combat the virus in the small amount of contact that you two were having. Bt now since your contact has increased, his body is working over time to make to anti-bodies." She turned toward Logan, "Your body will adjust in a few weeks, in the mean time, cutting back on your contact will help with the side effects."

Logan and Max both let out the breaths they didn't know they were holding.

"That's great news." Logan said at last.

"As happy as I am about all of this, I have to get to command." Max turned to Logan, "Just to check on things." Logan nodded and gave Max a quick kiss on the cheek before ther departed and headed thier seperate directions.
