Sort of a sequel to good days ahead, but instead set 2 weeks after their marriage.
Summary: Rick is asked to do one more thing for the legion before he can retire for good & 2 weeks after getting married; this is not good news to Evy. To make sure her new husband gets back safely, Evy must do the unthinkable.

Dedications: I'd like to dedicate this to my readers, thanks without you all I'd be another obsessed 15 year old girl with nothing to do, but drive my family crazy. This also goes out to my best 'guy' friend Kyle. Kyle, we may have our ups and downs, but you're still always there for me. Thanks, and if things never work out between us, know this, you'll always be my friend.
The Egyptian sun rose around an hour ago and it only now hit my eyes from the window, waking me fully up. It's hard to think that only last week I'd been in Paris on my honeymoon with my husband. Husband…ooh that word still sent chills up my spine. We'd only been married two weeks and every night was magic. I feel so embarrassed talking about this, but seeing as how I'm in bed, nude, next to Rick, I really have nothing to talk about, right?
Rick slept soundly next to me, that is until I could no longer strain myself and kissed his arm, shockingly waking him up.
"Good morning, Mrs. O'Connell." He said sleepily as he took me to his side and I rested my head on his chest.
"Good morning, Mr. O'Connell." I said giggling. This had become a daily routine for us, waking the other up and greeting each other the same way, and this was something I was not willing to change, I loved my life. Who would have thought, the librarian and the legionnaire together, well not me, that's for sure.
Rick turned over and faced me.
"So what do you want to do today?" he asked.
"Whatever you want, I really don't care."
"What do you say to a walk in the garden?"
We got ready quickly and walked out of the house Jon and I shared as children with our parents on our visit to Egypt. We were only staying in Egypt for a little while longer; we grew tired of the desert fast and thought it would be great to move to London. We had a house, well mansion really, that Jon and I inherited after our parents pasted on. We are going to let Jon live with us seeing as how he does own half the house; and if we ever start a family he'll come in good use as a baby-sitter. Rick seemed very excited to come to London with us and I know we'll be happy where ever we go.
As we walked in the garden my parents had planted over the years we lived here, Rick and I were talking about how wonderful it would be to be away from the desert for awhile. We were, of course, going to keep the house here, in Egypt, incase we ever came back for any reason we would have a place to stay.
My white cat Cleo ran past us and jumped on the nearby wall. I had Cleo for about a year now, and she come in handy, especially with Imhotep. Thank goodness I got Jon to fetch her from the boat while in fort Brandon, he had also fetched me some new clothes, since I'd worn that lovely black dress for quiet awhile.
"Evy, honey, are you hungry?" Rick asked as Cleo ran towards the house. I nodded and looked him in the eyes.
"Well what do you say to a little something to eat?" I nodded again, for some reason I couldn't find my voice. That happened a lot when I was with Rick. Sure we were married and in love, but I still felt like a school girl around him.
We said good bye to Jon who sleepingly pushed us out of his room and left the house and went to find a restraunt.
We arrived at a quiet café and ordered something to eat, we talked about what we were going to do for the rest of the day and embarrassingly, we ended up agreeing to going back home and back to bed, but not to sleep mind you.
"O'Connell!" a voiced yelled from somewhere in the café, a voice I had never heard before, but never the less, Rick got up and covered me, his hand hovering over his gun unnoticing.
