“I’m here, sweetheart. Sorry that I’m running a little late; Cassie called as I was heading out of the house. She said to tell you hi. She and Kyle and the twins are coming for a visit next week. It’ll be really nice to see them. I bet the twins have grown three inches since their last visit. Oh, I talked to O’Neill last night. Would you believe he actually caught a fish up at his cabin? He even sent me a picture of it. I’m more surprised he figured out how to send a picture with his phone than the fact that he caught a fish!”
She glanced over at the sergeant waiting for her as she wiped her eyes.
“Daniel and Sarah are on an extended dig on P7X-489. They’ve found ruins very similar to those on Easter Island, including moai. Daniel is beside himself with excitement about being able to see a dig through from beginning to, well, if not the end, at least not having to leave after only a few days. Sarah certainly seems pleased to be in one location for an extended period. I think she’s getting weary of planet hopping. I think this long-term assignment will be good for both of them. And the big news is that Teal’c and Ishta are grandparents again. Rya’c and Kar’yn now have a daughter. Teal’c couldn’t be prouder. Rya’c has already declared that little Drey’auc will get the same training that her big brother Bra’tac gets, keeping alive the traditions of the Hak’tyl. I guess—”
“What is it, Sergeant?”
“You said to let you know when it was 1300.”
She nodded. “Go back to the car. I’ll be right there.”
She let out a sad sigh. “Well, you heard him. Unfortunately, I have to go.” She kissed her fingers, then reverently placed them against the cold, marble headstone. “I love you, Sam. Same time, next year.”
