<Main Square>

They were all assembled on the main square. Aria and Taer side by side with Jon on Aria's left and Josh near the fountain. He was ready armed with his bow and shock lance. They had been spending a bit over Josh's place and now they were outside waiting for Jordon. Jon spoke trying not to sound a bit nervous, "So, we gonna get going soon?"

Aria spoke, "Soon. Be patient, Lieutenant."

Jon nodded and went silent while watching the fountain in the main square.

<Main Square>

A trail of dust could be seen coming from a little used side road, essentially a short cut if you didn't mind a river crossing, from the base. Jordan was beside Josile, as the two of them rode swiftly to pull up just short of the others. "You all look like you slept well. I hope so as this is going to be a long ride." Typical in her fashion, no greeting just straight into it.



Josile was much of the same mind, the intel they had gathered from Catherine was worrying. "We ride hard for Altan, I plan to be there before day break. Josh, let me know if additional rations are needed, we can stop by Elara on the way, tis but another two hours from here."

<Behind the pub>

"Fresh breads, cheeses and a brand new bottle of ginger beer...non alcoholic for the teetotallers." Elle told him with a refreshingly happy face. Holding his outstretched hand, she eased herself down setting the basket in front of him. "You know Mike, we should have done something like this at home, so often I wanted to get you to come down under, so, I'll ask you now. First chance we get, you'll come and see my home?" It wasn't really a request, not in that way at least, more of a statement as to 'you will come won't you?'



< Behind Judy's bar>

“And after last night’s indulging in the local brandy – your liver is going to thank you!” Mike teased back with a grin.
He gave her a tight, one armed hug as she sat down, nodding at her proposal, “Sure. I’m all game – as long as you keep those poisonous snakes that crawl all over the place away from me. I do watch Animal planet you know. Those slithering creatures are everywhere!” then gave her hair a kiss and started to dig in to the basket.
He placed the blue table cloth on the ground and began lining up the small parcels of cheese, glasses and drinks on it.
Mike halted his hand half way between the basket and the table cloth on the ground, holding a loaf of towel covered bread in his hand and turned to look at Elle “Did you manage to…” he paused for a second before continuing,  “…get hold of Cate?”
For some reason it had felt more natural that Elle would try and get hold of their friend than him. That ‘female to female’ kind of thingy. Women for some unfathomable reason always being the ones more able to talk about emotional things than males.

John had no real experience riding a horse but he figured that riding a horse on an alien planet was a dream come true for most people so he would accept the offer regardless.

"How far are we going?" asked John aware that riding could be rough over long distances

John wished he could have some time off to explore the small stores that were placed around the Alpha site but alas he was a soldier not a civilian who had those luxuries.
His horse was black which was his favourite colour when it came to horses while most preferred the white he liked the idea of his horse being but a shadow hidden from enemy fire.

"So this one is mine right what is it's name?" asked John curious wondering if he should even try talking to a horse like a person

As they started riding for Altan, Josh obediently checked the ration packs. He responded back to his leader, "We might need a few more rations."

Their horses were strong and sturdy for them. Even Taer seemed to be a natural horseback rider. He was Jordanian after all. He rode Arabian horses once in his childhood years. Aria looked at him and manged to stifle a giggle. Taer looked like a giant on horseback. Jon rode up beside Valentine and spoke, "Hey. You could name him if you want? I hear they are intelligent and sensitive about their names." 

They were soon moving away from the main square and through the town of Foreston. Even Jon was curious as to what they were doing exactly. Or where they were going. He spoke a question out loud, its direction to either Jordon or Joslie, "Where or what exactly is Altan? I'm not from around here..."

When you've been caught with your nose in the bottle red handed, you can't escape the outfall. That was Elle's former Captain's words, Jack Campbell, a lovable guy in any woman's language and in his day quite a hunk to. "Good sir you would not deny your lady a small tipple for purely medical reasons would you?" Elle feigned the most awkward Victorian era dialect imaginable, it sounded even worse because of the Aussie twang, yet the effect was there seen in her sparkling eyes; a huge difference to just a day and half ago.

Mike though knew well how to dazzle her, just that small touch of affection, the kiss of her freshly washed hair was something to hold close to her heart, the good Lord only knew how much she had missed that while they had been apart. This little setting, such a small thing to many people was to be cherished, its not often given the tempo of their work that an opportunity arose like this, Elle was determined to make the best of it. Her hand rested on his as he reached for the bread. "I gave Judy fifty crowns to make sure we are left alone......" Then he mentioned Cate, Elle's eyes saddened for a moment. "I missed her Mike, SG4 bugged out for home before I could reach her...I'm sorry." She felt lousy about it to.

<Main Square>



"Your mount's name is Arod, meaning swift in the old tongue. You chose wisely John Valentine." Josile had been told earlier by Jordan the names and identities of each from Earth, her memory was second to none even if she had never met someone; a year could pass and she would still remember you even if your meeting was ever so brief. "Elara is but forty miles due south in your measurement. Altan some two hundred miles south east further. Our ride will be swift, grave tidings have reached my ears of Borg movements in the region...." Her heart was palpitating like a forge hammer as she spoke, Altan was Josile's home town.

Jordan looked John up and down, he had scrubbed up well since the training and she knew he would pass well above the others, even the Sergeant failed in areas were Valentine excelled. She had already put his promotion papers through last night, by the time they return, he'll have his second stripe. "As Josile said Valentine, quite a ways. Since there is no such thing as mules here and the oxen are too slow, we'll only be able to gather what we can carry. Lieutenant Commander Israel, since we'll be riding in pairs, two abreast, you and I will have the rear." Jordan knew from the files she read last night, Aria had a head on her shoulders and between the two of them things should go smoothly as far as the tactical side of things went. Taer was a brilliant Marine, hard and tough, they'd worked together for a while now, so he would be up front with Josile; Jon and John in the center. The thought of the two names made her smile. "Take the lead please Josile, Taer with her. Move out!"

<<From Alpha Site>>>

 Not for any other reason than Bobbie found the pedals to reach on the Jeep a little bit of a stretch for her and she hated having the seat moved so far forward her nose could touch the steering wheel; so she asked/told Kim to drive. Actually that wasn't really even necessary as the moment they reached the motor pool after a mad dash from their rooms that hunk of a man who looked so much like Colonel Sheppard of the alpha site, sort of guided Kim into the driver's seat anyway. He knew the score.

 So along they went smoothly at first until they reached the yet to be surfaced part of the main road into town; this was tooth loosening territory and both girls kept their mouths clamped shut until they were on the flagstone paved section of the Foreston main Square. They went around the big fountain twice as Bobbie tried to jog her memory where that store was; it was then she felt slightly nauseous as that very shop was the girls were taken from by the Lucian Alliance not too long ago. But they were made of better stuff than that; Bobbie swallowed hard pointing to the place just up one of the five roads that led off the main square (it was in fact round). "Down there Kim, that pinkish looking shop on the left about 50 years. I'm sure that's it." They had to be quick, so Bobbie said nothing of what went down all those months ago.

Kim had to fight hard to bite back a smile as Bobbie gave up driving.  Her friend was usually the driver, yet this time her short stature was working against her.  Kim flashed the really good looking man who ushered her to the driver's seat a smile.  Darn, they sure did grow them good looking here.  Maybe her and Bobbie could find someone like Michelle and Alex had done.

On the drive to find the store Kim felt her stomach drop out from under her.  She wasn't normally one to get queasy, but as she glanced over at Bobbie she saw her friend remembered the same thing.  That time in their history was one she would rather forgot. They had been survived Zulu only to get themselves kidnapped.  The one thing Kim remembered the most about that was being extremely cold.  She never wanted to be that cold again.  She shuttered at the memory before pushing it away. "I think you're right," she agreed, heading for the building.  Kim finally found the place and pulled to a stop. "That was a lot harder to find then I remember," she laughed.

 "Okay we're doing this!" Bobbie said quite bravely, determinedly. The two girls walked to the store, with the little bell ringing as once before what seemed so long ago. (It was only months ago).

 A young woman looked up from behind the counter looking a little flustered as she brushed away a stray red lock of hair from her face. "Darn it, I've lost my seeing glasses!"

 That single statement alone told Bobbie this girl wasn't Cavalieros, well her hair color said that as much. Still she knew that over the last year or so refugees from other worlds had settled here, they could only assume she was one of them.

 "Excuse me Miss, can we help?" They really didn't have the time, yet without the girl's eyesight being 100% there wasn't much else they could do.

 "Oh! Oh yes please if you would. I will be ever so grateful to you both."

Kim pushed back a shutter as she followed Bobbie out of the Jeep.  She couldn't and wouldn't let fear rule her life.  Although at the moment it was coming close.

Kim stared in shock as she watched the woman trying to find her glasses.  She wasn't sure what she expected, but a red head with missing reading glasses was not it.

"We'll gladly help," she agreed, stepping up by Bobbie.  "Any idea where you last saw them?" she asked, looking around the store.

"I had them here on the counter a moment ago." She said with frustration building up in her voice.

 Bobbie tapped Kim to just start searching while she got down on her hands and knees to try and see things from that perspective, low level recon as she would put it. She looked under some of the display cases first, then as she was turning around something caught her attention right under the counter. A glint of light reflecting off glass. Bobbie crawled over in that direction then squeezed her arm under, she could just fit and it was right up to the shoulder. "Got them!" As her hand closed over one arm of the glasses before she stood up again. "Here you go Miss..."

 The girl took them gratefully, even more so when she saw they were undamaged. Slipping them on she squinted. "Thank you, thank you. It's Marley, Marley Arafesk. I am truly grateful to you." She gave both girls a respectful lowering of the head. "Now what can I do for you ladies today?"

 Bobbie looked over to see if Kim was back with her, she was. "Lovely to meet you. Well we're attending our commanding officer's wedding today, or tomorrow, it depends on the timing. She has asked us to be here bridesmaids...erm you know what that term means don't you Marley? Oh..forgive my manners. My friend here is Kim Paine, I'm Robyn Hatfield, we're from the Alpha site base but I guess you know that already." If she kept this up she was bound to get confused, so Bobbie tried to quicken it up.

 "Why yes of course I do. We use the same description on my world. You must be proud if it is your commander."

 "We are so very proud. Well we're looking for identical dresses and we were hoping since we're roughly the same size that might make it easier." She couldn't wipe the smile from her face now.

 Marley thought for a moment before she answered. "Well getting an identical fit normally would be hard. But I did receive a new collection only yesterday. Let me check the inventory list." The young girl started flicking through papers, her head lifting every now and then to look at Kim and Bobbie as if measuring them with her eyes. "Oh you are in luck. We have six dresses and two of them are size P, to you I suppose that would translate as petite. Here, have a look at the image I have and they are in that color." She slid the top cover of the inventory list over, there were four photos, Marley's finger was on the top right picture.

 Bobbie's eyes popped, you could almost hear the champagne corks. "O-M-G! Kim!!!! Look at this." She was so excited the words barely left her mouth.

Kim hid a smile before turning to start looking.  Her and Bobbie seemed to be losing things all the time too.  She was just about to drop to her hands and knees to look when Bobbie exclaimed she had found them.

Kim stepped back up by her friend.  "Pleasure to meet you, Marley and yes we are very proud and excited." Kim bit her lip, hoping Marley could come up with something,  she didn't know what they would do otherwise,

She moved closer to Bobbie.  "Those are perfect!" She exclaimed, clapping excitedly.

 Once again the girls were acting with such excitement as if their teen years were still upon them. Bobbie looked around in wonder at the store, they'd need shoes as well but that would be a minor issue. "Look Marley, we don't have much time for a fitting, so we'll take our chances, I'm sure we'll be okay."

 "Okay?" Marely asked.

 "Um, yeah it means we'll be alright. Big question, how much?" Not that it mattered, living on the Alpha site both girls bank accounts had more than they could spend in several years to come.

 Marley leaned over the counter, measuring them up again with her practiced eyes. "Yes you both will be...okay. For you both since its such as special event, 65 crowns."

 Bobbie did a quick calculation, that was a little under $250. She looked at Kim. "Well what do you think? I'll go for it."
