Disclaimer: To my great disappointment I don't own Ardeth Bay or anything to do with the mummy movies. But Kamilah is mine…. And I may use her to get to Ardeth at some point in time…. Mwahahaha!!

(A/N) This is simply just an idea of what could have happened when Ardeth returned to the Medjai camp after the whole Mummy encounter. Hope you enjoy!

The moment he entered their tent she rapped her arms around him and kissed him with such passion it left him speechless. He scooped her up in his arms with ease and carried her across to their bed. No words were needed for the rest of the night.

He lay awake as the sun rose, watching the sunlight crept up her perfect body, somehow enhanced her beauty more then ever, making her glow like the goddess she was to him.

"Good morning, my love," she murmured, as her eyes slowly opened, "How I have missed waking up by your side." He smiled at her and brushed a few strands of hair behind her ear.

"I have missed you too, my darling Kamilah." He said with a smile, but his expression suddenly changed to that of pity. "I'm sorry." She looked up into his eyes completely bewildered by their sorrow. "You deserve better, better then any thing I can give you. You deserve a husband who is always by your side. You should be living in a big house in the city, not out here in the dessert. I love with all my heart and soul, but if you ever get sick of living like this I will understand."

She caressed his cheek with her fingers the softly began to speak. "Ardeth, stop this foolish talk. Surly you must know that love you more then any woman has loved a man and nothing is ever going to change that. A big house and fancy clothes mean nothing to me. All I ever wanted and needed was you, even when you're absent from my side for long periods of time, it's the time spent when you return that matters" She suddenly pulled him down to her, riding him of all his previous worries, and kissed him with such a fiery passion it left him, for the second time since his arrival home, completely speechless but he did not care in the slightest.
