Elise got home, to find that Daniel had not yet arrived. She breathed a sigh of relief; she wasn't able to face him just yet. She put her coat on the coat rack and had just finished changing into her pajamas when she heard the door open and then the sound of someone cursing under their breath.

She turned the hall light on to find that Daniel had stubbed his toe, for the tenth time, on the table that they put the mail on. She giggled at the sight of him, holding his toe and cursing in Ancient Egyptian and, what seemed to be, Goa'uld.

"Danny, do you want to move the table so you stop bumping into it?" Elise asked, with concern.

He looked up at her, love in his eyes, "Yeah, I think that would be best."

Daniel let go of his foot and walked over to his wife, pulling her toward him in a passionate kiss. "I missed you."

"I missed you too, Daniel." She pulled back when he tried to kiss her again.

"What's wrong?" he asked, worry evident in his tone and eyes.

"We need to talk about something."

Elise led him into the living room and the two of them sat down, "Daniel, what do you think of having children?"

"I don't think it's a good idea."

"Why? You've always told me that you didn't think it was a good idea, but you never told me why."

Daniel sighed and looked down at his hands, "Because when I was five my mom gave birth to another child. I had a baby sister, Camille, for all of two years before she died of leukemia. Cancer runs in my family, Elise. I don't want to take the chance." Tears welled up in his eyes and Elise pulled him into a hug.

"Honey, you didn't have Thor or the Tok'ra then, we do now."

"Why did you want to know?"

She took a deep breath and decided that there was no point in beating around the bush, "I found out today that I'm pregnant. I've been a wreck all day thinking about how you would take the news."

Daniel kissed her again with love and passion, "You shouldn't have been worried. You're right, we have Thor and the Tok'ra and the Nox, all willing to help us if something were to happen."

Elise smiled at that, "You know what the problem with keeping secrets is, Daniel?"


"You make pregnant women worry too much. Oh, I was thinking of a name if our baby's a girl, and I like Sha're Janet Camille Jackson."

"Was the Camille added just now or before?"

"Before, I've always liked that name."

A solitary tear fell down Daniel's cheek, "Thank you."
