John and Monica sped away from the ruins that were now being destroyed by the helicopters. Monica look back and see that no one is following us. She looks at John, he had his full concentration on the round trying to figure out what they would do now.
John, where are we going?
I don't know Monica. He paused a few seconds and then continues. I think we should keep driving until it gets dark and then find a motel where we can figure things out, he suggested.
Okay, sounds good. Do you want me to drive? Monica noticed how tired he looked.
No. I'll be okay. How long until we hit the next town?
He nodded to the glove compartment where Monica found a map. Monica looked it over, determining how long it would take to reach the next town.
There isn't any towns any where near hear, but there is a motel about 100 miles down this road, I think we should stop there.
Yeah okay, we should be there in a couple of hours.
He said to her then he put his attention back to the road. As Monica gazed out her window she thought about all the things that has happened in the past year and a bit, Scully's birth, Lukesh, the teenager who was half fly, the horrible car accident, William's kidnapping, finding Luke's killer and finding the ultimate proof of the paranormal but not being able to show him to the world. Then it crossed her mind that neither her or John would ever be able to go back. John must have sensed what she was feeling as he slid one hand off the steering wheel and put his hand in hers, Monica smiled at him gratefully for the comfort his touch gave her, he couldn't help but grin back at her. When they arrive at the motel, John paid for one room with a double bed, thinking it would look less suspicious to anyone who might check. They both laid down in the bed, facing one another, looking into each others eyes, into each others souls.
I love you, John barely whispered into the silence. Monica couldn't help but look at him in disbelief, she had given up all hope of him ever loving her, but he had just said the three words she had always dreamed of hearing from come from his lips.
I love you too. Monica couldn't help the tears that came to her eyes, but she doesn't wipe them away. John placed his hand delicately on her cheek, wiping away the tears which escaped her eyes. He leaned forwards and she met him halfway, lips meeting for the first time.

I'm sorry. John suddenly whispered. Monica looked at him with confusion.
You're sorry? For what? She asked as she nuzzled her nose in the crook of his neck.
For not doing that sooner, for waiting so long. Monica looked up at him and saw the sadness and guilt in his eyes. Monica reached her hand up and cupped his cheek.
It was worth the wait. I would have waited an eternity if it meant I could have you like this. Monica told him honestly. He leant down and gave her a gentle kiss. Monica then rested against his side as exhaustion took hold of her and she fell asleep in Johns arms.
Monica opened her sleepy eyes and saw John fast asleep next to her, his arm around her waist, snoring slightly. She though about how often she had dreamed of waking up like this, in this mans arms. A noise in the distance distracted her from her thoughts. After a second of panicking she realised it was her cell phone, the one she had bought under a different name and only Dana had the number to. She carefully removed herself from Johns arms, being careful not to wake him. After she found the cell phone, pressed the button, she lifted it to her ear.
Monica knew it was Dana, but she had to check.
Yes Monica, it's me. Are you and John okay? She asked.
Yeah we're fine. Are you and Mulder okay? She questioned, saying a silent prayer that they were safe.
We're fine. Listen I received a call this morning from Skinner and he says that none of us can go back to DC, he says that the only way for us to stay alive is if we all separate and go to different countries. Dana explained.
Are you serious? We're going to give up? Monica queried, she couldn't believe what Dana was suggesting. Giving up and splitting up for who knew how long.
I am serious and no we are not going to give up Skinner, Mulder and I have agreed that we need to separate, it will keep us alive and when it's time we will find each other and put up one hell of a fight. But right now it's way to risky for any of us, do you understand now why we must do this? Dana explained, Monica could hear the urgency of the situation in Dana's voice.
Yeah I guess, Monica replied, still not entirely sure this was the right thing to do. Where will you be going?
Skinner is going to some family he has in Canada, Mulder and I are going to Italy its up to you where you go.
Well I have some old friends in England who can help me out I guess. Monica looked over at John who was still fast asleep.
What about John? She inquired. Monica didn't want to think of them splitting up, leaving each other and possibly never seeing each other again.
I don't know. I'll talk to him when he wakes up, Monica told her.
Okay. Listen Monica I want to say thank you for every thing that you and John have done for me and Mulder, I realise that we wouldn't be together now if it wasn't for the both of you, and that I'm sorry that you both had to be dragged in our mess.
Monica could hear Dana's voice cracking with emotion, Monica didn't want to think of this as a goodbye. She couldn't handle it.
Dana we are best friends and nothing is ever going to change that. We will see each other again sooner or later, and as for being dragged into this mess if I had to do it over I wouldn't change a thing that has happened, so don't you dare feel responsible all right. Monica firmly told Dana, her own voice cracking as she shed silent tears.
Okay. Well I guess I should be going our flight leaves soon, I'll miss you both very much, goodbye, she said and hung up the phone before Monica had a chance to reply.
Monica looked at the phone in her hand and said her own goodbye, fully aware that neither Dana nor Mulder could hear her. Monica looked over at John. How was she going to tell him the plan? How was she going to handle leaving him? After everything they had been through together. She knew she had to be strong. She walked over to him and gently shook his shoulder.
She shook his shoulder a little stronger when he didn't wake up the first time. He opened his tired eyes and upon seeing her teary face he panicked.
Monica what is it? He asked with a worried look on his face as he looked her over to see if she was hurt.
I just got off the phone with Dana and we've agreed on what to do now.
7 YEARS LATER
There wasn't a day that Monica didn't think about them, Dana, Mulder, Skinner and most of all John. After talking for quite some time they had agreed to separate but promised that one day to find each other again, once it was safe. It was the hardest thing Monica had ever had to do. The first night she spent in England, Monica decided to write down every detail of her life, from early child hood to right now, so that she would never forget, from then on Monica always kept it under her pillow as she always wanted to remember and add some things. In addition to the diary, Monica had two tattoo's done. On her upper arm she had John written with a beautiful design of a blue flower and on her lower back she had written in bold I Want To Believe' with a little green alien. This was a way of saying that she would never forget and didn't want to forget.
A few weeks after moving to England and getting a job at the local secondary school teaching English. Monica started feeling sick every morning and finally chalked up the nerve to buy a pregnancy test, as she saw it turn positive Monica's emotions went spinning out of control. She was happy, she had always wanted a child and now she was going to have one, but Monica was also crying her eyes out, knowing who the father was, knowing that he wouldn't be here for any of it and knowing she would have to go through everything alone.
9 months later Monica gave birth to a healthy baby girl and named her Melissa who as she grew older insisted on calling her Missy. She had Monica's brown hair but John's beautiful blue eyes. Other teachers at the school, who Monica had become close friends with, tried to set her up with male friends of theirs, but every time she went out with a guy she couldn't help but always compare them with John and they never match up, they were never even close. Missy didn't seem to mind to much about not having a father, she sometimes asked questions about him. Mostly of when she would see him. Monica always replied, when the time is right or one day.
At the moment Monica was in school and it was form time and she was having a daily gossip with some of the students, who all say that Monica didn't really act like a teacher but as a fellow pupil, they said that was why Monica was so popular with the students. There was a sudden knock at the door that made her jump slightly, Monica turned to see Miss Luis, one of her closest friends at the door.
Hi, I'm sorry to disturb you Miss Peters but there are some people here to see you, they say its extremely important. Monica noticed that her friend looked a little nervous.
Who are they? Monica asked with curiosity. What would make Miss Luis so nervous? She was almost frightened.
Well they say that they're from the Airforce in America. Miss Luis informed Monica. Monica couldn't help the shock which clearly showed on her face.
Show them in. Monica said as calmly as possible, trying not to panic.
Miss Luis stepped outside and informed the visitors to go in, there were five of them, four guys and a girl with short blonde hair.
Can I help you? Monica questioned, trying to sound as natural as possible.
Well we're looking for someone, a Monica Reyes we heard that you know where she is. One of the men told her.
Well I'm sorry but I don't know a Monica Reyes. Monica knew it was no use trying to lie, they knew who she really was. But still, she had to try.
That's not what this says. The women tossed a black wallet onto the desk in front of Monica, as she opened it her jaw dropped and her brown eyes widened with horror. It was Monica's FBI identification badge. She hadn't seen it in years. Monica had decided, when she went back to her apartment in the middle of the night to grab what she could, that she would leave it there. Monica had always wandered what had happened to it.
Who are you? Monica questioned, fear evident in her voice. The student watch on curiously.
Well I'm Colonel Jack O'Neill, Dr Daniel Jackson, Major Sam Carter, Jonas Quinn and this is Murry. The man wearing the sunglasses introduced everyone. Monica couldn't explain it, but she felt as though she could trust them. What on earth did they want with her?
Monica looked closely at the one which was introduced as Murry and she realised something. He wasn't human. There was something funny about Jonas as well, but Monica couldn't place it. Monica turned her attention to the form, who were still watching in confusion.
You can go to lunch early. And with that they all headed out with confused expressions on their faces. Once they had all left, Monica turned back to the visitors. What do you want from me? She asked curiously, for some reason Monica wasn't afraid.
Well we have this friend who says that we need to bring you back to our base and have a talk. Jack said with a bit of humour in his voice as he took off his sunglasses.
I cant go with you. Monica told them.
Why not? Daniel asked.
Well I have a new life here, a job, a home, a seven year old daughter to think about and I don't know if I can trust any of you. Monica explained to them.
We already new you had a daughter, and it's fine to bring her along. We already read your file Miss Reyes and the reasons why you left the FBI and America, you can trust us, we're not planning on telling any one that your back in America. Jack assured her with a smile
How do I know I can trust you? Monica asked them, she knew she could, but needed to make sure.
The friend of ours said that you would know whether or not you can trust us. Sam's said, she didn't continue as to who this friend' was.
Monica couldn't explain it but she knew they were right, for some reason, she felt as though she could trust them and knew that she needed to go with them. Monica took a good look at her form room, knowing it would be the last time she saw it for a long time, if not forever.
Okay, I'll go with you. When do we leave? Monica asked, for some reason she couldn't help but smile. They all smiled back at her as Monica said a silent prayer, that she wouldn't end up regret this decision.
There's a car waiting outside, we can go pick up your little girl now, go back to your place so you can pack and then there's a plane waiting for us at the airport. Jack told her with a huge grin on his face. He obviously had expected this to be a lot more difficult.
After that, Monica told the head teacher that she had to go straight away and that she couldn't explain why, he had protest but once he had a talk with Colonel O'Neill he soon changed his mind and wished Monica luck. They took her to collect Missy from her school and for some reason she understood that they had to go and didn't protest at all. Monica and Missy went home where they were told to pack every thing, as it was likely that they would be gone for a real long time and possibly not come back here. So that was what she did, Monica packed all of hers and Missy's clothes, photos, Cds and anything else that may be needed in the future.
ON THE PLANE
The plane was absolutely gorgeous, it had a part where the seats are rowed but also half the plain was just one huge sofa. At the back of the plane was a little kitchen sort of area with drinks and some food. Monica couldn't help but smile when Missy had found her favourite snack of all, sunflower seeds, Monica had always thought it was funny. Her loving sunflower seeds just like Mulder. An hour into the flight, Missy had fallen asleep in one of the seats. Monica found a blanket and placed it gently over her, she kissed her on her temple as she tucked the blanket around her daughter. Monica sat back down on the sofa and looked out the window. She couldn't stop the tears which escaped her eyes as she thought about John. Jonas came and sat down next to her. She quickly wiped away the tears.
I was reading your file and your old colleagues files. I was wandering how you all met each other.
I met John first, John Doggett. She knew if she told him the story about his son and how they fell in love anyway she would break down.
How did you meet? Monica hesitated before answering.
We met in New York, he was married and ... His son was kidnapped, I was the Agent assigned to the case to find him ... We worked the case together for three days, on the third we ... we found Luke, his son, dead.
Not the best way to meet someone. You stayed in touch for years. Why?
I don't know. After I was transferred to New Orleans we wrote each other, send e-mails and have occasional phone calls. Then I was transferred to work with him. Tears once again filled her eyes and this time Jonas notices.
You fell in love. It was more of a statement then a question.
Yeah, from the moment I saw him in his NYPD uniform looking a total mess, I fell in love with him. Monica paused. I remember on my birthday he blindfolded me early in the morning, it was so early the sun wasn't even up. He walked, guiding me for a while. When he took the blind fold off we were standing on top of the Empire State building. No one else was up there at the time, and we stood there, he had his arms wrapped around me from behind as I leaned into him, we watched the sunrise together.
That sounds like the perfect present, a memory like that.
It's one of my favourite memories of us. Monica couldn't talk anymore, she couldn't help but burst into tears. She buried her head in her hand. Jonas wrapped his arms around her and she sobbed into his shoulder. I miss him so much. Monica whispered between sobs. Jonas's heart went out to her, this women had fallen in love with someone, they had met in the worst of ways but they still fell in love. She'd had no choice but to be away from him for all this time. Being reminded of him everyday through their daughter. After what seemed like hours Monica pulled back and Jonas removed his arms from around her. I'm sorry, you must think I'm a goof or something. Monica laughed slightly.
Not at all, I think you're one of the bravest people I have ever met.
Thank you. Monica nearly whispered.
You're welcome. Jonas looked out the window and then turned back to Monica. Looks like we're here and are about to land.
They both went and sat down in seats, strapping seat belts around them. Monica was sitting next to a still sleeping Missy, Monica smile as she pulled Missy onto her lap and gently stroked her soft hair as she continued to sleep, lightly snoring. And for once Monica smiled at the sound.
Once they had landed they were immediately taken to a car with shaded windows. In the car both Monica and Missy have to sign some papers that said they agreed not to tell anyone about whatever they learn on the base, they were also handed a badge, each with their pictures on them, Jack told them to always have them on. When they finally arrived half an hour later onto the base, the door was open by military men and Monica and Missy's bags were carried for them inside. Missy was a little nervous and scared and so Monica carried her all the way into the base. In the elevator Monica finally realised how secret this place must have been, as it took a long time for the elevator to stop and they all exited. A bald man was instantly waiting for them as soon as they stepped out.
Monica Reyes, I'm Generald Hammond, welcome to the SGC. He welcomed her with a warm welcoming smile. Monica gave a polite smile back.
Hi, it's nice to meet you, this is Missy. Monica introduced, nodding towards the little girl in her arms. He looked at her and smiles.
I guess you're wandering what your doing here? It was more of a statement than a question.
Yeah, just a bit. Monica replied.
Well follow me and we can tell you. He turned and started walking down the corridor, Monica and everyone else followed him into the briefing room. Please take a seat. Monica set Missy down in one of the big chairs and then took a seat next to her. Everyone also took seats around the table. We actually don't know much about you, but our friend told us to find you and bring you here. He admitted.
Who told you to find me? Monica asked. Who would know where to find her in the first place?
We'll tell you every thing once we find your friends. All we know is that you are a former FBI special agent who worked on a unit called the X Files', you, your colleges and your boss for some reason separated to different countries and changed your names. He said. Monica again wandered who the hell could have wanted her here. Hammond continued We know that you know about these so called super soldiers and their plans, that's basically all we know about you besides the basic file report, so if it's okay with you we would like to ask you some questions? He asked, Monica nodded her head and he started asking questions. What was the X Files unit investigating, what kind of crime? Monica couldn't help but think how they were all about to have their minds blown away.
The X Files was a unit of the FBI that solved cases that involved the paranormal or cases that had been said to be unsolvable with the normal FBI methods. She told them.
Can you tell us about some of the cases? Jonas asked.
Sure, I was only on the unit for about a year, but some freaky stuff happened, there was one case I'll never forget, it involved a human fly. Monica said, smiling at the memory of the case.
Are you serious? A human fly? Sam questioned in disbelief.
I'm serious. That was one case I will never forget. Monica said with a small laugh before continuing. Stuff happened to me, to the X files Agents that would blow your mind away. Monica couldn't stop the grin from spreading across her face.
Care to share, what other things happened? Jack asked with humour in his voice.
Alien abductions, UFOs, government conspiracies, parallel worlds, near death experiences, ghosts, mutants and just weird stuff. They all looked at her strangely.
Cool! Sounds like it would make one great television show. Jack commented.
Well, now we have some basic background lets move on. The reason you're here is because we need your help. General Hammond said.
The next couple of hours were spent telling Monica all about how the super soldiers were actually these things called the Goa'uld and who it was who said to find her and to bring her there, they also explained about the Stargate, they didn't explain how it worked though. Monica found it totally unbelievable, but she would believe nearly anything at that point.
That's basically all we can tell you until we find the rest, and we need your help to find them. You're the only one who has any idea where they went. General Hammond finished, Monica had a look of shock on her face at everything she had just been told. And even though she still didn't know why they want to find the others, she knew she can trust them.
Walter Skinner is in Canada with some family I think, Dana Scully and Fox Mulder are in Italy and ... um ... John Doggett is in Australia. Monica tried to hold back the tears, but she couldn't believe she would get to see them again, she will be able to see John again.
There should be one more person. Hammond said to her, but she didn't know who else he could have meant.
I don't who else you could mean.
We were told that you went out with him in New York. Jack said with a smile.
You've got to be kidding me, Brad Follmer, why the hell do you want him? She asked, anger present in her tone of voice.
It's who we were told. Do you know where we can find him? Hammond asked.
Yeah, he's in prison where he belongs. Monica told them.
I take it you don't like him any more. What did he do? Sam asked.
He was on the take from the man who murdered John Doggett's son, and then when John found out Follmer killed the guy he was on the take from. Monica tried to hold back the tears which were quickly filling her eyes as she remembered that day on the beach, of being told that Brad had killed a guy in cold blood. She may not like him, but part of her would always love him. Hammond announced the meeting to an end. Monica and Missy were shown to two rooms next to each other, In Missy's room they had done it up for her with toys, games and drawing equipment. As Monica sat in the middle of her double bed, she writes in her diary everything she had just found out when there was a knock at the door. She looked up to see Jonas.
Hi. I figured you may like some one to talk to. He said in a sweet voice. He closed the door and sat on the end of the bed.
That's really nice of you, Do you know if they found any of them yet? Monica questioned.
Yes actually they have found them all and are on there way, Brad Follmer should arrive any minute, Walter Skinner should arrive tomorrow morning , Dana Scully and Fox Mulder should arrive a little after that and John Doggett will be the last to arrive since he moved the furthest away, He informed her. Monica nodded, she had the sudden urge to ask the question which had been on her mind since they had met and she had to ask it now.
So Jonas where do you come from?' Monica asked as though it was the most natural question in the world.
No you don't. It was more of a statement than a question.
Where do you think I come from then?
I don't know, but I know you don't come from LA, you don't come from America, this continent, I don't even think you come from this solar system let alone this planet.
What makes you think al of that? He tried to hide his lying with a question but Monica didn't fall for it.
Just a feeling. He granted her a small laugh before answering the question.
The planet were I come from is much like earth but my country was building a bomb that was more powerful then any of them could have imagined, and I didn't want to be apart of that. Somehow, Monica could tell that there was more to the story but she didn't want to push him into telling her.
That must have been hard, leaving every one you knew behind.
Yeah it was, you did the same just not as extreme, but for some reason I know it was the right thing to do. He paused and they smile at each other before he changed the subject So Missy seems wonderful, I don't mean to be rude but we've been wandering where her father is? He asked, she knew he had already worked out who the father was, but she thought he was probably just making sure he wasn't wrong before he jumped to any conclusion.
Well John Doggett is her father. She told him and unconsciously rub her arm, where her tattoo is hidden under her top.
And he still agreed that you should split up? He stated, a little shocked.
No it's nothing like that, I only found out I was pregnant about a month after I moved to England, he doesn't even know about her and I'm kinda scared what his reaction will be considering what happened to Luke.
Wow, now I can see why you're worried. But I have a good feeling that he is going to be the happiest man alive when he arrives to find you here and a beautiful daughter greeting him.
Monica could help but smile, she hoped that Jonas was right. A knock on the door interrupted their conversation, they turned their attention to the door which opened revealing Jack.
Hey guys and girls. I'm sorry to interrupt but Brad Follmer is in the briefing room, he doesn't know you're here and we thought it would be a nice suprise for him. When he finished he opened the door for them to walk out and to reveal Missy waiting for her Mommy.
Monica got up and walk out, followed by Jonas who closed the door. They followed Jack towards the briefing room, Missy had her hand in Monica', holding on tightly. They entered the briefing room, as soon as Brad saw Monica his he was shocked.
Oh my God, Monica.
He stood up and Monica and him embraced in a long hug. He might not have been Monica's most favourite person in the world, but she had to admit she had missed him on some level and it was nice to see a familiar face. When they finally pull apart he looked down at Missy and looked back up at Monica with a questioning gaze. Monica picked Missy up into her arms.
Missy this is Brad Follmer an old friend of mine. Monica turned to Brad Brad this is my daughter Missy. He smiled at her and they say hello, he turned back to meet Monica's gaze.
God Monica I missed you so much. Monica just smiled at him as he lightly stroked her hair, he looked at Missy again. Is all he could get out.
She tells him, an angry look instantly came across Brads features.
Where is Mr Doggett any way? He asked in a smug tone.
He's on his way. Monica told him.
Thank you for getting me out of prison. He said.
It wasn't my doing. They asked for you. For the first time he saw all the other people in the room watching them.
What do they want? He looked at Monica for the answer, but she just looked towards Hammond.
Once everyone else arrives here, we'll tell you. He said and turned to Jack Show him to his room and keep a guard on him. Jack nodded and Follmer followed him out. After they had left Hammond turned to Monica. Miss Reyes we have set you up an office for you, its gonna be your work office. He motioned for her to follow and so she did as he explained. We would like you to familiarise yourself with some of the missions, and the way things work around here, we would also like you to help Dr Jackson and Jonas in there research, they will explain it all. He showed Monica to the office, it was pretty basic, a large desk, a computer with everything, shelves and units to hold books and other items. Monica already know one thing she was going to be putting up on the wall behind the desk, She couldn't help but smile as she thought of it. Well feel free to walk around the base, just make sure you have the badge we gave you, the computer will have every thing you need to know, and complete internet access and e-mail, feel free to search at you leisure. And with that he left her alone in the office.
Missy has wondered off back to her room to play or do what ever it was she was doing before Brad had arrived. Monica went back to her room and rummaged around in her bags until she found what she was looking for. Monica smiled as she walked into her new office, she unrolled the item and stuck it onto the wall, she stepped back, reading what it says out loud I want to believe. Monica was so glad she had found one of these posters on the internet. Monica was so lost in her thoughts that she didn't here the door open.
Monica Reyes. A voice said. Monica turned round to see Murry standing just inside the door, still wearing his hat Are you all right? He asked.
Hi, yeah I'm fine I was just thinking. So who are you really? She asked completely out of the blue. He looks at her for a minute and then take his hat off slowly, to reveal a gold mark on his head.
My name is Teal'c. He introduced himself.
So what are you? Goa'uld? Monica asked.
I am Jaffa. He also explained the difference between the Goa'uld and Jaffa, this is all to much information for Monica to take in at once, she just looked at him.
I need to meditate. She said under her breath, not thinking he would hear her, but he did.
What is to meditate? He asked.
It's where I sit down with my legs crossed surrounded by some candles and maybe some incense and sit quietly for a long time, it help me to relax when I need to. She explained to him.
I have to do that every day for an hour, maybe you would like to join me. He suggested. Monica thought she could see a little smile on his lips, but only a little one.
I'd like that. Monica smiled back at him.
Monica followed him to his room were he had already set out candles and some incense sticks, as they begin Monica feel a little strange, realising she was meditating with an alien, but soon she relax into it and found a sense of peace that she hadn't been able to find since the X files was shut down. Monica lost track of time as she heard a knocking at the door, Monica opened her eyes and saw that Teal'c was just opening his eyes. He looked above Monica's head towards the door and she follow his gaze to see Jack, Daniel, Sam, Jonas and Missy at the door.
Sorry but some one wanted there Mommy and it's time for us all to get some food from the cafeteria. Jacks said and they all go to the cafeteria and get some food.
Monica wasn't really hungry so she only had a sandwich, Missy decided on a sandwich and a piece of chocolate cake. Everyone took a seat at the same table and Jack decided to start the conversation.
So Miss Reyes tell me about this human teenage fly case you investigated. Jack requested with a boyish smile on his face, Monica looked around and saw everyone smiling as well as they started to eat their food. Except Teal'c, it looked as though he wants to though.
Please call me Monica, and sure. Did you ever watch that Tv show Dumass?
I love that show! Jack almost yelled. It's a shame the guy who did all the stunts died. What about the show? He asked.
Well, Agent Doggett and I were set the task of finding out who had killed him because, the fact that when we went to the morgue to see the body that a load of flies flew out of his flattened head was considered strange. Monica continued to tell them about this case in between bites of her sandwich. I get ready to pull my gun out, but he opens his mouth and wraps me up in a giant, sticky web. They were all listening to her every word.
Then what did you do? Sam asked, eager to find out more.
I was stuck, barely able to breath, luckily John came and found me before I was dead and got me out.
As Monica finished the story she realised that they had been sitting there for well over an hour, even though every one had finished their food a while ago, they were here hanging onto her every word.
Wow, were all the cases like that? Jonas asked.
No, sometimes it got really exciting. Monica laughed at the looks on there faces. It was a mixer of shock, amazement and disbelief.
Jack was the first to speak.
No one was in any hurry to move for awhile, everyone told stories, so they all got to know each other a little better. SG-1 were amazed by the stuff that happened in the X Files and it's Agents. After Everyone finally decided it was time to leave, it was time to sleep. Monica was extremely tired and so was Missy from all the excitement from the day. As Monica putting Missy to bed and tucking her in she asked her Mother if she would ever meet her Daddy. Monica couldn't help but smile.
Tomorrow you'll meet him and he will absolutely adore you. Missy smiled widely at that answer. Monica pulled the cover over her, enough to keep her warm. She leaned in and gives her a kiss on the cheek as Missy fell into a restful sleep.
Monica closed the door quietly and went into her room. As she got ready for bed, she realised how scared but excited she was to see John. Monica was excited because she had missed him so much, but was petrified of what his reaction will be towards Missy, whether or not he would be happy or not. Monica closed her eyes and instantly fell asleep under the warmth of the covers.
That night Monica had a dream, it was strange, there was a man in black, it was kind of like a grim reaper robe he was wearing, Monica couldn't see his face, it was frightening, something about him scared her. Seven symbols flashed in her mind. That was when Monica woke up with a start and realised it was morning. Monica knew that the dream meant something, so she quickly wrote down the seven symbols before they left her mind. She quickly got dressed and went to Missy's room to find it empty. Monica walked down the corridors searching for any sign of her, as she walked around she saw Daniel walking with a cup of coffee in his hand and a book he was reading in the other.
Dr Jackson have you seen Missy any where? Monica asked worriedly.
Yeah I have, she's in the cafeteria with some of the others having breakfast. He informed her. Monica thanked him and walked into the cafeteria to find Missy eating a bowl of cereal with Jack, Sam and Jonas. Jack saw Monica and waved her over. She took a seat next to Jack.
Good morning, how'd you sleep? Jack asked.
Good morning, I slept all right thank you except... Monica trailed off, unsure whether or not its worth telling anyone about.
Except what? Jonas looked at her worriedly.
Is there a Goa'uld who wears what looks like a grim reaper black robe and who's face you cant see? Monica asked instead. They look at her strangely, except Missy who was to busy eating her cereal to pay attention to the conversation.
Yeah, Anubis, how did you know? I didn't think you had a chance to read any of the missions. Sam asked.
No I haven't, but I had this strange dream last night and I could see this Anubis guy and I saw some symbols. As Monica told them this she took out the piece of paper out of her pocket and showed it to them. I have no idea what they mean, but I cant shake the feeling that its important.
We know what they mean. Remember what we told you about the Stargate, we explained everything except how it works, how you get to a planet, well each planet has an address of seven symbols, the seventh being the point of origin, this is an address to a planet. Sam explained. Monica was in a bit of shock. How on Earth did a Stargate address end up in her dreams when she didn't even know what the symbols looked like.
What else happened in your dream? Jonas asked.
It was like he was preparing some kind of army for an invasion or something then I saw the symbols flash in my mind that was when I woke up.
Monica looked at the symbols again, she had definatley never seen them before her dream. Jacks took the paper and said he would talk to Generald Hammond about it later. After everyone had finished eating they went to the briefing room as AD Skinner should arrive any second, they entered and see General Hammond, Daniel, Teal'c and Brad already sitting waiting. Monica sat down opposite Brad and Missy sat down next to her colouring in a picture of what Monica couldn't tell yet. The doors opened and Skinner came in, asking why he was brought here, but stopped as soon as he laid his eyes on Monica.
Agent Reyes oh my god. He gasped out. Monica stood up and they embraced in a strong, warm hug.
Sir I thinks that title has been dead for a while, please call me Monica. He smiled at her and then he noticed Follmer sitting with a smug look on his face, Monica can see Skinner instantly turn angry, he turned to her with a questioning gaze. They asked for him. Monica told him, he looked at everyone else in the room and then looked back at Monica.
What do they want? He directed the question to Monica, but Hammond answered for her.
Lets wait until every one is here, Dana Scully and Fox Mulder we're expecting any minute. As he said that everyone could here Mulder yelling and demanding to know why they had been brought here.
Agent Mulder, Skinner said with his boss voice as soon as Mulder and Dana walked through the door.
Mulder and Dana instantly turned around and looked at Monica and Skinner in disbelief. They stared at them for a second, Dana was about to say something but was stopped by Missy.
Mummy look! She practically yelled.
What is it baby? Monica asked as she walked over to Missy and knelt down next to her. Missy held up her drawing and Monica could now see that she had drawn a picture of Hammond, Jack, Sam, Daniel, Teal'c and Jonas. That's really great, why don't you show them? Monica suggested and Missy spent the next few minutes showing every one she can find.
Meanwhile Dana, Mulder, Skinner and Monica were catching up. Monica and Dana were crying almost uncontrollably. Missy finished showing every one and they all had huge smiles on there faces.
Missy come here please. Monica called and she came over. Monica picked her up into her arms and turned to the other three. Missy these are some friends of mine, this is Dana Scully, Fox Mulder and Walter Skinner, guys this is my daughter Melissa. Monica introduced them, Dana looked at Monica and smiled. Monica hoped she didn't mind her naming her daughter after her sister. They say hello and Dana seemed to be okay with Monica naming her Melissa.
Blue eyes. Dana said suddenly and looked at Monica She questioned, Monica can only nod her head yes as she kissed Missy on her temple.
Monica put Missy down and she went off and started to draw another picture.
Does he know? Skinner asked, Monica again could only nod her head no this time. That was when Dana noticed Brad in the room, leaning back in his seat, watching the reunion.
What the hell is he doing here? She questioned and looked questionably at Monica.
It was not my choice, they asked for him. Monica told than as she indicated to the other people in the room. Dana and Mulder set a glare onto Follmer that could kill. Monica realised that Dana had obviously told Mulder all about the last year on the X Files, including Brad. Brad got up from his seat, he came over to stand next to Monica.
I was hoping we could start off fresh, since it has been seven years and all the stuff that happened is in the past, I think we should all start over. He suggested with a false smile.
Skinner soon shut him up with his fist. As Brad recovered from the punch that just gave him a bloody nose, Skinner finally spoke.
Okay, I just had to do that before we started over.
Monica, Mulder and Dana all tried not to burst out laughing but it failed miserably and they all laugh until it hurts. Monica looked over at every one else in the room and see they are also fighting off the urge to laugh like them. Once every one is calmed down and Brad had been taken to the infirmary to get his nose fixed Mulder finally looked at Monica seriously and asked the question she had been waiting for.
What do they want? The question was directed at Monica, but again Hammond answered.
We should wait until every one is here so we can tell you all together. He paused then continued John Doggett should be here within the hour.
After all the introductions were made Skinner, Dana, Mulder, Missy and Monica sat around the briefing room table catching up on what had happened since they last saw each other and were talking about all the good times they remembered. Hammond and everyone else entered the room, John should be there any second. Monica stood up ready to see him. He entered and as he looked at her, they both smile a huge grin. Monica instantly ran into his strong arms. They embraced each other in the biggest hug ever and their lips soon found each others. This was what Monica has been dreaming about for seven years. When their lips finally parted, he spoke.
God you cant imagine how much I've missed you. He smiled as tears escaped not only Monica's eyes but his as well.
No way near as much as I've missed you. Monica answered back at him, he was about to say something else but there was a tug at Monica's jeans, they both looked down to see Missy, Monica took Missy's hand in her own and held it tightly.
John there is someone I would like you to meet. This is Melissa. Monica paused, seeing him smile at her, encouraged her to continue. Your daughter. And with that he stared into Monica's eyes with a shocked expression on his face. Monica could see the tears in his eyes threatening to come out, he looked down and picked Missy up, he had a wide smile on his face at that moment.
Hi Daddy. Melissa said. Instantly knowing that this man was her father and throwing her arms around his neck.
Hi, its an extreme pleasure to finally meet you. He whispered as he kissed her cheek. He looked over at Monica and pulled her into the embrace.
They were interrupted by the sound of some one clearing their throat. All three of them turned to see that every one in the room was trying to cover there smiles but failing miserably. After everyone has said there hellos' and cried, it was time to get down to business.
Well thank you all for coming with no clue why. Hammond spent the next couple of hours explaining every thing that they had told Monica in the beginning when she had first arrived. After he was finished explaining Mulder asked.
Who was it who told you told find us? Why were you able to find Monica first?
Well that's the tricky part, some friends of ours has been keeping an eye on Miss Reyes for a while and they told us where she was. He explained, but Mulder was unsatisfied, so was everyone else. Brad had been bought back in the room and was listening to what Hammond had been saying. He had a pretty bad bruise on his nose.
Who are these friends? Mulder asked.
Aliens known as the azgard. He stated and everyone looked at each other with confusion.
Why the hell would aliens be watching me? Monica questioned.
Because of who you are, ever since you were abducted... Monica cut Hammond off quickly.
Whoa wait a second I was never abducted! Monica told him.
You have no memory of the abduction, any way ever since you were abducted they new you were special and kept an eye on you. Hammond paused and looks at Monica's reaction before continuing, as he expected, she was shocked. In most cultures of aliens races in the universe they speak of six humans from the first world, who will save worlds from the Goa'uld, by destroying the most powerful of the Goa'uld when they try and take over the first world in a planned invasion. One of these humans was said to have certain abilities, they would be able to sense a Goa'uld, feel things no ordinary person could feel and a lot more, we believe Monica that you are this person and the rest of you are the other five. He finished and waited for them all to take in the information. Every one was shocked, but Monica was beyond shocked and had gone to stunned.
