covers back from the body and laid his head softy against his wife's
beautiful stomach, pressing a kiss on a rounded curve.
It's Daddy," he whispered. John ran his hands slowly over the expansion
of his wife's stomach. His hand was greeted with a bulge pushing
out of the skin. John smiled and kissed the spot.
Aeryn Sun slowly
opened her eyes to her husband kissing her rounded belly. She smiled
and ran her hand through his hair.
Sunshine." John greeted his wife.

by kissing him back passionately. John bit down lightly down on

sarcastically. John smiled at her amusement and held out his hand

Aeryn lay on
the examination table as Jool scanned over her body with the medical
equipment. John had been called up to command to take care of a
little problem. Frell you, Rygel! Jool finished scanning and looked
at the control panel to get the readings.
"How much longer
do you think?" Aeryn asked as she sat up.
this is the first Sebacean/Human pregnancy, I have to take the information
that John has provided with human gestation. A Sebacean gestation
is average of six monens, whereas Human gestation is nine monens.
You have had a gestation period of seven monens." Jool said as she
turned toward Aeryn with a smile on her face. "According to my scan,
it looks like that the child has turned in the womb and you are
in the beginning stages of labor."
this would be good news. Since you said that you are tired of being
pregnant." Jool teased.

look at her husband.
"You wife is

But just remember one thing, I am the one pushing this child out

"And the mood

that he needed to speak with us in his den," he said as he wrapped
his arm around her waist.
"I think we
should head up there then. I am sure that he has an answer to the
request we asked of him and Moya." Aeryn said as she laid her head
on his shoulder.

Aeryn sat on
the side of Pilot, resting her aching body. Her labor has started
in full force, but she did not lead anyone on to the knowledge.
John was standing in front of Pilot.

over his chest. Pilot looked up from his console.
Moya and I have agreed on a name for you offspring." Pilot said.
Aeryn smiled as the memory of a similar situation played in her
mind. Moya had wanted Aeryn to name her offspring. She named him
Talyn after her father.
you two decided?" Aeryn asked as she caressed Pilot's brow.
"Moya and I
have decided on the name Amara for your offspring. Moya and I are
very honored to name your offspring." Pilot said as he looked both
at John and Aeryn. Aeryn slid closer to Pilot, taking on of his
fours arms, putting a hand on her belly.
"John and I
are both even more honored to have a child named after one of Moya's
creators. Amara will be loved by all." Aeryn said looking into Pilot's
eyes. She felt another pain grip her middle. Aeryn tried to ignore
the pain, but it became stronger. John saw the look of alarm on
her face. He went towards her.

a hand on her shoulder.
"No, I think
there is something terribly wrong." She said trying to stand up,
but blackness fell over her. John caught her as she collapsed. John

looked down and saw blood on them. " Frell!" he exclaimed as he
ran out of Pilot's den with his unconscious wife in his arms.

place. She opened her eyes slowly to see John and Jool standing
over her. Aeryn felt pain rip through her body. She screamed in
"What the frell

"Jool is doing
another scan. Just remain still." John said. Aeryn looked into her
husband's eyes, knowing that something was terribly wrong. Jool
finished scanning Aeryn's body and turned to exam what had come
up on the screen. John left Aeryn's side and stood next to Jool.
"What is wrong?"

pale. "Then deliver that baby and save my wife." He said with alarm
in his voice. Jool went over to her workstation and grabbed an injection

please tell me what the frell is going on?" Aeryn demanded through
clenched teeth as pain ripped through her body again. John got to
his wife's side, taking her hand in his. "There have been some complications.

as he saw his daughter for the first time. He loosened his grip
on Aeryn's shoulder. Her body leaned against his for support. Jool
placed the baby in Aeryn's awaiting arms. She looked down at the
child that she and John created, tears coming to her eyes. John
wrapped his arms around both his wife and child.
Erin Sun-Crichton." Aeryn whispered as she brought her lips
to her daughter's brow, kissing her softly. John looked in wonder
at the small life that his wife held in her arms. He brought his
finger to his child's hand and Amara wrapped her hand around it.

out her arms for the baby to be placed into them. Aeryn reluctantly
placed the baby in Jool's arms. She had a worried expression on
her face. Jool smiled softly, "I will bring her right back to you
after she is done. I promise."
Jool left medical

table, caressing her pale cheek. "Who would have guessed that fate

to be repaired. We don't have that option." Tears began to slide
down her cheeks.
"You are not
going to die. You are not going to leave me again." John said as
tears ran down his cheeks. Aeryn looked up at her husband.
"I love you
and nothing will ever change that. I don't want to die here. Take
me to the terrace. I want to hold my daughter in my arms before
I die." Aeryn said through her tears. John was reluctant at first,

John was crying hard.

That we never did.
All the things I should've given,
But I didn't.
"I don't want
your life to end like this. You still have so much time a head of
you." John whispered into her ear. Aeryn pulled her face away from
his shoulder, her blue eyes full of tears.
"I don't regret
one microt of my life that I have spent with you. You have made
me the happiest person," she said as she looked down at her sleeping
daughter in her arms. "You have given me so much more. John, you
taught me how to love and to be loved. I brought our daughter into
this world out of love."

all my heart and soul. You have given me your love and our precious
daughter. Thank you for all of that." John said as he tightened
his arms around his wife and daughter. Aeryn slowly felt a force
pulling her soul away from her body. No please! Not yet. I just
need more time. Aeryn brought her lips to John's and kissed
him. John pulled back a little to look into her blue eyes. "I love
you, John Crichton. Take care of our little girl." Aeryn's eyes
closed and her breathing stopped.
John shouted. "Come on baby. Don't leave me. Don't leave me..." John
cried as he began to rock back and forth with his wife and daughter
in his arms.
Give me these
Give them back to me.
Give me that little kiss.
Give me your hand.

took his daughter into his arms. John rocked back and forth. "Shhh...precious.
Daddy's here. Daddy's never going to leave you." John walked farther
out onto the terrace, looking down at his daughter. Amara had the
same blue eyes as Aeryn. Amara wrapped her tiny hand around his
finger. He sighed and looked out into space. A star twinkled brightly
