One disclaimer: I don't own Stargate, Yugioh, or the Geico commercial.
Bakura awoke lying on a bed in the infirmary with Anise sitting next to his bed. She looked like she was fast asleep, so he was careful not to make a sound as he sat up. Looking around, he saw that Yugi, Malik, and Kaiba were also here, but they were asleep as well. He nearly laughed when he saw that Kaiba was sleeping with the Millennium Rod in his hands.
He checked to make sure the Ring was around his neck, then slid out of bed and crept to the door of the infirmary. He heard voices outside the door and stopped to listen.
"Janet, are they awake yet?" asked Sam's voice.
"No, and it's starting to worry me. They've been asleep for four days straight, and I can't find the reason why," Dr. Fraiser's voice answered.
"Has Anise been in there the entire time?"
"Yes. She seems really worried about Bakura."
Bakura glanced back at the woman sleeping by his bed. He hadn't known that she cared that much about him; he'd thought only Ryou cared that much about him.
"Hey doc, is Yugi awake yet?" said a new voice, this one belonging to Jonouchi.
"No. You can go in and visit him, though."
Bakura jumped away from the door as it opened and Jonouchi walked in; the teen almost passed him, but his hair caught the light and Jonouchi stopped and stared at him. They were silent for a few moments until the teen grinned and walked over to Yugi's bed. Bakura walked back to his own bed as he noticed Anise was stirring. She looked confused for a few moments before Bakura placed his hand on her shoulder and she looked up at him.
"Thank you for waiting for me," he said quietly.
"It was the least I could do," she answered as she stood up.
"H-hey, could you guys k-keep it down?" asked a voice from behind them. "Y-yami and I are trying t-to sleep."
"Yugi! You're awake!" Joey exclaimed. Yugi slowly sat up and looked around sleepily.
"H-hey guys, is everything all right?" he asked through a yawn.
"Actually, we've been asleep for four days," Bakura answered.
"Yeah. Kaiba and Malik are still asleep."
"D-do you think we should w-wake them up?"
"No, we should let them wake up on their own."
"Um, B-bakura, Yami wants to ask you something." Bakura nodded and Yugi went on, "He wants to know what you called him during that spell."
"Atemu. It was his name I think."
"Okay. Thank you."
They decided a suitable cover story was to say there was a Duel Monsters tournament on the mountain that day and only the most elite duelists were invited. It made sense to anyone who really thought about it, since the best duelists in the world were Yugi, Kaiba, Jonouchi, Malik, and Bakura, and they were all at Cheyenne Mountain.
Dr. Fraiser made Bakura, Yugi, Malik, and Kaiba stay in the infirmary for the next day for observation until Jack visited them.
"Guess what? I've got good news," he said as he walked through the door.
"You just saved a load of money on your car insurance by switching to Geico," Malik said quietly. O'Neill snickered and shook his head.
"Nope, better news. Hammond says you all can go back to Japan."
"What?!" Bakura exclaimed. "Aren't we a security risk or something?"
"Well, the General believes that if you could keep something like the Tok'ra a secret for thousands of years, something like the Stargate should be a piece of cake."
"But…I don't want to go back," Bakura said quietly.
"What?" O'Neill's disbelief was echoed by several of the other occupants of the room.
"I just found out that an ancient relic thought to be lost to myth actually exists and is being put to use on a daily bases and you want me to just turn and walk away as if it never happened? I am involved; I've been involved for three thousand years. I can't just leave this alone." He stared at his feet sadly. "Aasir's memories are almost like they're mine own, but neither of us have ever been offworld. And now I know that I could go anywhere he dreamed of. You can't just ask me to leave."
"Bakura, you don't belong here," Yugi said.
"Yes I do! You don't understand. I've been involved in this for longer than anyone has been alive! I've known and loved ten generations of Tok'ra, and seen each of them die, several just to keep my existence secret. How can you say I don't belong here?"
"I'm glad to hear that," said a voice from the doorway. They turned to see General Hammond standing there.
"What do you mean, sir?" Yugi asked.
"I've decided, and the President agrees, that, in light of the help you given us, any of you who want to remain here may. I'll even authorize the making of a new team if enough of you stay."
"You mean, we could go through the Stargate?" Bakura asked. Hammond gave a small smile and nodded his head.
"If Ryou's staying, I am," Yugi said.
Malik nodded his agreement. "No sense in letting Pharaoh and Bakura have all the fun."
"I think…I'd like to stay here too," Kaiba said quietly. "Mokuba can handle the company on his own, I'm sure. And I must admit, the whole idea of the Stargate is fascinating."
"Then it's settled," Hammond announced. "You four will make up team SG-20–"
"Actually, I've got a better name," Bakura interrupted. "Since we have the Millennium Items, we should be SG-Millennium."
"All right, SG-M it is."
