SPOILER WARNING! TSCC SEASON 2, especially the final episode, "Born to Run".

This is my first attempt at any fan fiction. I've read various FF for years, but this is the first time I'm writing. All reviews are welcome, but please be kind as I've never done this before, and I don't claim to be a master writer.

Of course, I don't own any of the characters. They belong to Fox. I'm simply borrowing them for a bit of fun. I promise to put them back when I'm done g.

I do, however, own this here little story. I wrote it, Fox didn't. Unfortunately, they suck like that, and decide to cancel really awesome shows… anyway, on to the story.

Kyle Reese stared at the young man before him. He was naked, only wearing Kyle's jacket. "Who are you?"

"He says his name's Connor. John Connor. Nobody in my squad's ever heard of him." His elder brother Derek answered.

"Well, Connor, I don't know who you are, but…"

"I do." A soft voice John recognized spoke up. His heart skipped a beat at the sound, but quickly deflated as he realized it wasn't Cameron who spoke.

"Allison? You know him?" Kyle looked at the young woman questioningly. He didn't know how Allison, who had been in his squad from the beginning, could know someone he didn't.

Allison? John looked at her too, surprise evident on his face. A few puzzle pieces started clicking in place. So this is Allison. This certainly answers a lot of questions… It certainly proved that Cameron wasn't completely delusional, if that was even possible. Allison existed, and from the looks of her, she was obviously the template for Cameron's likeness. Cameron never explained to John who Allison was. He just assumed it was a glitch in her chip, a former infiltration personality perhaps. He never imagined she was a real person. But how could…

Allison ignored Kyle's question and stared back at John. He was smaller than she had imagined, and a little younger. There was a fire in his eyes that was undeniable though; one she recognized immediately. She gave him a reassuring smile.

"I've been waiting for you."
