"Sir." Sam said not sure what else to say.
"You're getting married?" He said cutting straight to the point.
"Yeah, me and Pete patched things up."
"Congratulations." He said. Both were so shocked that neither of them showed any emotion.
Trying to leave this awkward conversation Cassie said, "I'm gonna go check on the baby." It wasn't until after she said it that she realized that was the worst thing she could have said at that moment. Sam glared at Cassie while Cassie gave her an 'I'm sorry look' back. Jack just stood confused.
"What baby?" Jack asked.
"My sister's" Cassie tried to cover her mistake with another stupid mistake.
"You don't have a sister." Jack said getting more suspicious of this baby.
"Right I forgot he knew that about me." She said to herself "I meant Sam's sister's baby."
"Colonel Carter doesn't have a sister either."
"Sister in law, you know, Mark's wife."
"Carter," He looked over at Sam who was still in shock, "What's going on."
"I told you, her brother and sister-in-law have a newborn baby that I'm going to check on." Cassie said knowing Sam was too emotional to deal with it.
"Why aren't the baby's parents taking care of it."
"They are, I-just-uh-um, ok, I'll be straight with you, this situation seemed like something you two might want to be alone for and I just needed an excuse to leave."
"Then why have you been acting so-"
"Enough!" Sam cut him off finally saying something. "It's my baby. I had a baby and now Cassie is going to check on her."
"This is crazy Cassandra, why won't you just admit you had a baby?" Jack asked looking at Cassie.
"Excuse me?" Cassie said offended. "I did not have a baby. Why would you even think that? The baby is Sam's. Geez dick much?"
"Wait what? Carter couldn't have had a baby."
"And I could?" Cassie asked pissed off.
"I'm sorry. You were acting weird about the baby and you're an attractive young lady I just assumed-"
"That I'm a slut. Thanks Jack" Cassie said walking away.
"For crying out loud! I didn't mean it like that." He yelled after her. "Boy did I misread that situation." He said then turned his attention to Sam. "You had a baby?" he asked still in disbelief.
"Yeah." Sam said not sure if she should tell him or not.
"Ok?" He waited for an explanation. "Well?"
"I don't know maybe you should tell me when you were pregnant or why you didn't tell me or why I wasn't told about your wedding."
"I didn't see any need to tell you. I already told you before, I didn't and don't want you in my life. Which reminds me why are you here?"
"Because I wanted to see it with my own eyes."
"Well here you go." She spun around in her big puffy white dress. "I'm getting married it's real. Now you've seen it now go."
"I will. But I have one question for you." He took a few steps towards her. "Are you happy?"
"What kind of question is that? Of course I'm happy. I'm getting married."
"Then I'll leave." He turned to walk away.
"Wait Jack!"She lifted her dress up enough so she wouldn't trip and then she ran at him. She put her hands on his cheeks and kissed him. "I can't do this." She said pulling away from him and running down the hall.
