A/n: I do not own Stargate SG-1 or any of the characters. I wish I did but I don't. That being said, There are no spoilers in this chapter how ever I do use names from the ep Benieth the Surface, I believe is the naem of the episode when SG-1 is underground on some planet. Slight change in conversation wise and I have changed the ages of the twins. Anyway,I've had a hard time writting a stargate story and I'm not sure why but this is the first chapter of many, I hope, to come. Please enjoy.

Ilovesg1-thanks for the review

Chapter one

"Daddy, can you tell us one of your stories?" Ryan O'Neill asked from his bed where he laid next to his twin sister, Sara who won't go to her own bed. Jack walked back into the boy's bed room and sat on the end of the bed.

"Which one do you want to hear? I think you've heard them all." Jack said with a smile when the children were born he would use his missions as stories to tell his children, only he would make sure his kids didn't think they were true. He had told a majority of them but not all and as he told the stories he would mix things up a bit so that the kids would laugh and stuff.

"How 'bout the one where the warrior, Jonah, his friends Carlin and Tor, and the princess, Therra were captured by the evil lord of the universe, Bob." Sara said and then Ryan turned to his sister and said, "Nobody cares about the princess, Sara!"

"Ryan, be nice to your sister." Jack said interrupting his son, "Everyone cares about the princess. Have I told you the one where Jonah and the princess get married?"

"No daddy, tell us. Please tell us!" Sara said excitedly while Ryan sat with his arms crossed, mad that he wasn't going to get his way but Jack could tell that his son would listen intently none the less.

"Well the story begins when the warrior retires and says that he's through with fighting the good fight because he's found love and wishes to marry the princess. Just when the warrior was going to ask for the princess's hand she is….."

"Dad, can I talk to you for a moment?" came Rebecca's voice. Jack turned his head and saw his eldest daughter standing in the door way with a cross look on her face.

"Rebecca, daddy was just about to tell us a story!" Sara whinnied pouting like her brother.

"I'll tell it to you later kiddo." Jack said picking Sara up and kissed her on the forehead and said, "Now go get in bed and no getting in Rebecca's bed, or Ryan's for that matter."

Little Sara ran out of the bed room and Jack followed Rebecca down stairs. Jack closed the door and saw a piece of paper in her hand so he took it from her and asked, "What's this?"

"A note that mom left saying that you're not suppose to tell Ryan and Sara the stories."

"Why's you're mother so against my stories?" Jack asked knowing why but also knowing that Rebecca knew nothing of the Stargate. Sam didn't like that Jack used his missons as stories becuase the kids could believe that thaey were ture and they'd tell other people and then some reporter may find out about the stargate, Jack thought that Sam worried too much and that's why he ahd assured her that the five year old twins didn't beileve that it was true and that they were just stories.

"I don't know, she just doesn't like you telling the stories. She thinks its bad for Ryan and Sara or something like that."

"What do you think about them, Becca?" Jack asked his eldest. He hadn't started telling the stories until Ryan and Sara were about two becuase Rebecca was adopted when she was thirteen, five years ago, and Jack thought she would be too old for bed time stories but every now and again, he would catch her listening to one of the stories.

"Dad, you know I like them but I don't see why you have to go against mom on this. there just stories aren't they?"

Before Jack could say any more the phone rang and he turned to Rebecca and said, "It's almost ten, go climb in bed."

As Rebecca ran upstairs to he bedroom, Jack answered the phone, "O'Neill Residence, This is Jack can I help you?"

"Hello Colonel."

"General Hammond, it's good to hear from you sir, although I take it that this isn't a social call, sir."

"No Jack, it isn't I was calling to inform you…."

"That Sam and Daniel got captured again."

"Actually…yes Jack. How'd you know?"

"Oh just a feeling her at home base, sir."


"Yes Sir. She hasn't said anything yet but I know she's worried about her Sam. Every time she gets worried she starts acting like Sam."

"Jack another reason I was calling was to inform you that I'm recalling you to active duty effective imediantly. I expect you to report at 0600 hours tomorrow morning."

"Yes, sir." Jack said as he hung up the phone and then sat on the couch and said, "This is not good."

A?N: Like I said before this is actually my first attempt at an actual stargate story. I have one other one that is up but it doesn't have all the fighting and drama that this story will have. I hope you like it. Thanks for reading and please review.
