I know! I said the last chapter was 'The End'. But my beta demanded it. And I like my beta. She gives me TimTams and Mocha. Never annoy your TimTam and Mocha supplier, it is not wise. You don't HAVE to read it...it doesn't really matter...it just winds everything up...but yeah.
Jack's POV - 6 years into the future.
How many people do you know that can say that Fruit Juice changed their life? Probably not many. I can. One night, on a distant planet, in a celebration of harvest and fertility I drank some fruit juice. And my life changed forever. I got a wife, a woman who I adore, and a beautiful baby girl out of it. And eternal happiness. Thanks to Fruit Juice.
How many people do you know that have to reply 'classified' when they are asked where you went for your honeymoon. Probably no-one. Sam and I do. Because we, along with our 3 month old daughter went to the planet that changed our lives forever. Except this time we didn't have any Fruit Juice. But two weeks in heaven, sitting in the fields and by the river enjoying the sun, the warmth and the people who had made my dreams come true.
Of course, it wasn't always easy. After nearly 2 years of trying for another baby, we went to see Janet and after a battery of tests, we were informed that Sam was infertile. We were both devastated, of course, we so wanted another child. For our 3rd anniversary we paid a follow up visit to P4J-666. This time we did have some Fruit Juice. 9 months later we welcomed Jacob Patrick O'Neill into our family, with his brown eyes and unruly chestnut hair that refuses to lay flat he's the spitting image of me (and that worries Sam no end…two Jack's, she just shakes her head and smiles lovingly at her son).
Seems Fruit Juice is some miracle fertility drug. Not that I'm complaining, I love being a father, and I love my wife more than anything. Janet is trying to synthesise the component that…makes babies. Sam would be able to explain it better than me, she's the brains in this family. Daniel says that ever since we got married I've had a perpetually confused look on my face, I just can't believe that someone as brilliant as Sam loves me…wants to have children with me. But, I'm not going to complain about that, who would?
It's been 6 years since that first mission, 6 of the most incredible years. And as I sit here, contemplating the miracles that have befallen me (that may shock some people, yes Jack O'Neill does think…occasionally…about things other than his incredibly sexy wife and The Simpsons), my brand new baby girl in my arms, as her proud mother blinks at us through tired eyes, I can't help but whisper a thank you to the heavens. For fate was surely on our side when we found that planet, otherwise none of this would have happened. Sam, now my wife of 6 years, with our beautiful children, Rosie, Jacob and now Grace Catherine O'Neill. My prayers were answered in the form of Fruit Juice on a distant planet.
And they all live happily ever after! Because I said so. :)
