"Please, don't go" Sam pleaded as Jack stood in front of her in the main departing room.

"I have to go" He told her, as she looked away worried.

"Why?" she whined.

"Don't worry, I'll be ok" he told her tilting his head as she looked back up at him.

"I've almost lost you too many times on accident Jack, I can't watch you walk right into danger. Let me go with you" She looked at him with hope he would agree.

"I'll be back before you can even doubt" he told her. She looked away again as she felt warm tears start to swell up in her eyes.

"Sam, I'm going to fine" He told her as he lightly put his hand on her chin and directed her head to face him. She tried to fight her tears. She bit her lip when she finally nodded.

"Yes sir" she told him as she sniffled. He took his hand away and brought his arms around her. He hugged her, as she hugged back tightly. Daniel, Dr. Frasier, Teal'c and the Colonel stood away from the two but waited close by. Sam and Jack started to separate as Jack leaned in and kiss her lightly. She kissed back as she put her arms around his neck. After they kissed she squeezed him tightly for another hug as he put his arms around her just as tight.

"Come back" she whispered as they slowly started to separate.

"I won't disappoint you" he said as they let go of each other entirely. She looked down at the ground as the rest of the group came over. Dr. Frasier stood close in front of him as she put her hand on his wrist to check his pulse.

"His pulse is fine" She reported to the Colonel.

"Good." He simply stated, as Dr. Frasier stepped away.

"Let me go with you O'Neil" Teal'c said.

"Thanks, but you still got to rest from that cut" Jack refereed to Teal'c and the cut he got from another Ga'uld just the other day. Daniel came up to Jack next, but Jack interrupted him before he could say any thing.

"I guess you want to go with me too?" Jack asked.

"No, not really. I just wanted to say good luck" Daniel smiled. Jack nodded and hit his shoulder lovingly, but roughly. The group stood back, and went back into the control room. Sam held one hand over her mouth as she tried to fight back her tears. Dr. Frasier kept an arm around her as Daniel stood next to the doctor. Teal'c stood on the other side of Sam, as the Colonel sat in front of the group along with the assistant at the controls. Jack looked back up at the group as the Stargate opened. His eyes rolled across the line of them standing there watching. His eyes locked with Sam's before he turned around again. He stood at the foot of the ramp and looked up at the Stargate. He knew he had to go, but everything inside of him told him to stay. That he wouldn't be coming back. He took off his tags and turned back around. Sam took a step forward as Jack spoke loud enough for the team to hear.

"I love you" he said as he set down his tags on the floor then turned back around. He ran up the ramp and jumped into the Stargate, as it closed behind him. Sam closed her eyes then turned and walked out. She walked out to the departure room and picked up Jack's tags that lie on the floor. She gently picked them up with her hand as the team watched. She looked at the tags as she ran her fingers along the etching of Jack's name. She took in a deep breath before she went back up to the control room.

"Colonel" She said not coming in the room and keeping her head down.

"Yes Major Carter?" he asked getting up and walking toward her.

"Permission to stay on base until the return of Colonel Jack O'Neil" she asked squeezing the tags in her hand, the chain they were hooked on by, dangling from her white knuckled fist.

"Permission granted"

"Thank you Sir" Sam nodded as she turned and walked away, her head still down. The colonel waited until the door she had left by was shut. He turned around and walked up to Dr. Frasier.

"Make sure she's alright in awhile"

"Yes Sir." Dr. Frasier nodded as she started for the door herself. She stopped to wait for Daniel as Teal'c did, when Daniel turned to the Colonel.

"Colonel?" Daniel began as the Colonel turned around to face him.

"Yes?"

"Do you think he'll make it?" he asked. Dr. Frasier looked away, as the Colonel took in a breath.

"I have no doubt that Colonel O'Neil will not return" He said before he turned away and went off to his office. Daniel sort of nodded as he turned and walked off with the doctor and Teal'c.
