<Woolsey's Office>

{Richard Woolsey} NPC

Richard had occupied himself with some data on his computer screen when his buzzer sounded. He picked up the internal phone receiver and spoke softly. "I'm sorry doctor, no word as yet. Have you place those children for now?" A female voice on the other end confirmed the Bakun kids had been sent to the Athosian camp and he relaxed. "Very well. I'll inform Doctor Keller when we hear from them." He replaced the phone and pressed his coms. "Chuck as soon as our guest arrives, send him in immdiately thank you."

"Err..Sir, we have another problem...." He answered before Woolsey could come back to his business.
"The Apollo is not responding, sir.... I've already tried four times."
The bad news were getting used to come during his turns.

"Bring him in Thurston and have your men stand down, meet me in my office."

"Yes sir. Stand down, lower your weapons."

The Wraith recognised the voice of the human, Woolsey, despite the tinny sound, and met the burly human warrior's hard gaze head on. There was an air of determination about this one, this Thurston, and Kenny cocked his head at an angle, waiting for a further response.

"Follow me."

Seeing no need to dignify such an order with a comment, Kenny fell into step behind the human, his escort in close formation. For all that, he was in one piece, and there had been a moment when he thought he would not survive. Now he was here, all he had to do was convince the humans they needed him as an ally. Kenny couldn't help the chuckle that ran through his frame, which earned him sidelong looks.

Ah, if life could ever be so simple again?

{Major Ruben Thurston USMC} NPC

Thurston remained silent as they entered the transporter, he dismissed his men although they did protest a little. A hand up in their faces was all they needed to obey. The door eased closed with a slight hiss and once on their way he spoke. "When you meet Woolsey, don't hide anything from him. I have an idea what this is about and it'll go a lot swifter if you are not perceived to be hiding anything."

{Kenny}

The Wraith looked at the human out of the corner of his eye, and gave a soft chuckle. "Major Thurston, I have no intention of prevaricating, as there is nothing for me to hide." He stared then at the doors of the transporter, his mood suddenly bleak. If he could not convince these humans to assist them, then the Alliance was lost, and everything the Old One had striven for with it. He could not voice this to the hostile warrior beside him, and would not, for to do so would be a show despicable weakness.

He was jolted from his thoughts by a flash, and then the transporter doors opened, leading out into a corridor.

Stepping from the transporter, Kenny walked beside Thurston, his shoulders set back, and stared ahead. Whatever awaited would have to be faced with courage, and conviction. The Commander would have demanded no less. The doors ahead opened, and beyond, the Wraith could see the ring of the Ancients, set against multi-coloured glass panes, light from them dancing on the floor.

"And so..." he murmured. "It begins."

Just when he thought surprises were over, the gate suddenly activated.
Chuck said in the coms "Incoming wormhole!"
When Woolsey arrived he typed on the console and raised the shield. Then he heard a beep from a monitor.
We're receiving transmission.."
"Atlantis this is Mckay, do you read?"

{Kenny}

The whoosh of the event horizon surging to life stopped the Wraith in his tracks, and he turned his head, looked towards the stairs just as the human named Woolsey appeared by the cleverman. A voice he recognised, that of Dr. McKay, came through the link.

Uttering a soft growl, Kenny took a step further into the command centre. "What is happening?" he asked.

<Gate Room>

{Major Ruben Thurston} NPC

"Just be wary Wraith. Woolsey may seem weak and ineffectual even by our standards. But he is wry and shrewd man, a negotiator and very cunning, he can see through people, even your kind." Ruben almost grunted the words out as he led Kenny into the centre of Atlantis's heart.

Chuck emitted a deep sigh of relief when he finally received the message from the Apollo

{Richard Woolsey} NPC

Looking up from his desk as Chuck made the call, Richard wasn't surprised. Colonel Sheppards timing was as always impeccable. "Thank you Charles, let me know the moment he is on his way."


{Kenny}

Stepping from the transporter, Kenny walked beside Thurston, his shoulders set back, and stared ahead. Whatever awaited would have to be faced with courage, and conviction.

As he reached the top of the stairs, the Major cast a casual glance over his shoulder at the Gate, he simply shrugged. "Probably Sheppard." He passed by the technicians and headed straight for Woolsey's office, tapped on the door. "Mr Woolsey sir, the emmisary sir."

"Come in, come in. Take a seat please. Oh and Major, see that we're not disturbed unless it is Colonel Sheppard. Charles..." he pushed his desk to coms. "The moment Colonel Sheppard and his team arrive, have them come up straight away."

{Kenny/Bonewhite}

As the door closed behind the Major, the Wraith tilted his head a fraction, eyeing the small man behind the large wooden table. A hand waved in the general direction of a chair, and Bonewhite huffed softly, edgy, aware he was on his own in the room, and wondered what game the Lantean played? If it was Hairey's intention to make him ill at ease, then the blade had succeeded. Still, it would do no good to allow him to see it.

Coming to a decision, Bonewhite sat in the chair gingerly, and placed his palms flat on his thighs. "Mr. Woolsey," he said, by way of a greeting, and tracked the objects in the room. Pictures, odd sculptures of strange beasts, of humans, and much more. "I come to offer you something that I know you desire."

((OOC ~ 'Bonewhite' is K's Wraith name and was invented by Jo Graham, author of Homecoming.))

<Main Office>

{Richard Woolsey} NPC

Richard removed his spectacles and wiped his brow, a sign of slight nervousness. he replaced them and looked at thurston standing there near the entry looking all macho and intimidating. He was probably more concerned about him than his 'guest'.

"Before we start, do you have a name? I abhor calling people simply 'you'. And it is timely that you have come to us, as strange as it may seem, I feel once again our two races may be in need of each other again. Have you ever see anything like these?" He turned his monitor around so that Kenny could see several obsidian ships, similar in profile to Ancient Aurora class but much more deadly and battle looking. "Two of these attacked the Apollo not twenty four hours ago, we tracked them to no avail. They seem to just appear and disappear as quickly, not wanting to have a protracted engagement." he sat back and clasped his hands before him awaiting the Wraith's repsonse.

{Kenny/Bonewhite}

Somewhat startled by the question, Bonewhite considered the human opposite, and drew a breath across his sensory pits, and the back of his tongue. Woolsey's scent carried overtones of anxiety, and excited his predatory instincts, enzyme gathering at the maw on his palm in response to the sensory input. He decided not to grace the man with an answer, but grunted, turning his attention to the monitor.

"Indeed," he growled, eventually, and turned a hard canary gaze on Hairey. "We have been attacked by such ships, but we do not know who they are." Lifting his off hand, he brought it to his chin to stroke his goatee. "Yet..."

Richard leaned across his desk, he swiveled the screen back around. There was more he had to show, but he would withold that for now. Just what this enigmatic Wraith was after he could only guess but he would play his cards close. "Hmmm, I see you have learned the nuances of human shadow play well sir, it is usually 'but', though 'yet' is much the same. Very well, let's talk, what is on your mind?" As he waited he called Thurston over.

"Major Thurston!"

"Yes sir" he strolled in with that usual warrior ease and stood at Kenny's side.

"Do we still have the VIP suite set up?"

"We do indeed sir."

"Very well, that will be all."

"Sir?"

"Dismissed Major."

"Yes sir." Blunt, what the hell was Woosley up to, Ruben pondered.

Richard sat back, negotiation was his forte' at times ruthless even callous. He hoped the Wraith had some inkling of Atlantis's hosptitality. There was something else he had. He looked at the photo's on his desk laying face down. A young woman, she for all appearances had the look of a hybrid, a half-wraith and there was a bounty on her head. he would save that for later.

Chuck, nervous because of the Wraith that just passed next to him, almost forgot to lower the shield. With a sigh he quickly typed on the console and lowered it.
Then he opened transmissions "This is Atlantis, we hear you, and the way is clear. Oh, and Mr. Woolsey is waiting for Col. Sheppard and his team in his office. We have... uhm.... visitors.."

{Kenny/Bonewhite}

Leaning forward, Bonewhite rested his talons lightly on the wooden surface of the table, and gave a thin smile. "We have a need of one who came to us before under the tutelage of the Old One. The female known as Teyla." The human's face acquired a disbelieving look, and Bonewhite could see the words forming on his lips even before he uttered them. That would not do! "We do not come... ah... empty-handed, Mr. Woolsey."

He settled back in the chair, head cocked, anticipating a response, but not certain what it would be. The Commander had spoken of the way he had been handled by these Lanteans, and there was no reason to believe they would not treat him in the same manner.

"Medical team to the Jumper Bay, repeat, Med Team to the Jumper Bay!"
He hoped it just wasn't anything too serious.

Richard weighed it up in his mind before speaking, "Teyla? what do they need her for....Michael." He remembered that it was said that Michael had eliminated their last Queen, without a Queen the hives would be in disarray. Perhaps that might be a good thing, or.....maybe to Atlantis's advantage. But would she..

"Very well, we will have to wait and see what Teyla and of course Colonel Sheppard have to say, oh and yes Todd....he is still our guest I imagine." He had no idea at this time what had become of him, still it doesn't pay to show all his cards. He turned over the corner of the photograph, a young woman, no more than maybe 20 years old, mouth open in front of a cctv camera they had placed near a gate. Perfect white human teeth, for the exception of very sharp, longer canines, a vision of the mythical vampire, snarling before she physically ripped the camera to pieces. But the worst of it was, apart from her personal guard of Wraith drones, was the litter of human bodies around the gate. Limbs and heads missing, bodies torn apart in a slaughter. She must be found and stopped, the Athosian's call her 'Bane' or 'Ghost'. Richard had another description for her 'Eulalie', from and old French myth, The Devil's Daughter.

The Wraith's eyes widened, as the name Hairey spoke registered, and for a long moment he could barely speak. Slowly, enunciating each word with care, so that the question could not be misinterpreted, he said, "Todd? The Commander? You speak of him as if he still lives?"

"He was forty eight hours ago and Colonel Sheppard has only reported injuries to our own people. This world you will not have been aware of, Bakun. They were somehow protected from the Wraith and had never been culled in over two hundred years, but now after only making contact with them a few months ago, we return and find them gone. Not your doing we know this, they are not the only ones. Several worlds we have contact with are now totally bereft of people, I thought this might conern you as well." Richard felt a lump in his throat, he could not tell this Wraith, that Atlantis had estimated it to be over two million souls.

Modified Jumper

Mckay Zelenka

The Jumper appeared thro the gate and immediatly made its way to the jumper bay. There were several medics awaiting their arrival. As it touched down the back opened and the medical personel appeared and waited for the jumper crew to start bringing the ones that could walk down the ramp, then they immediatly strode into the jumper to look at the others. Mckay went ahead with Zelenka and Janus.

"Its so good to be back, im off to grab some food, anybody want to join me?" It was so typical of Mckay to think of his stomach, Zelenka declined
" No no Rodney I was thinking of showing Janus our lab"

Reeling from the news, Bonewhite barely heard another word the human spoke, and he uttered a low sub-vocal growl. Hairey continued to speak, but it was just so much white noise; Bonewhite could hear only the rushing of his own blood in his veins. Finally, he managed to zone back into what was being said.

"Where is he?" he demanded. Leaning forward, Bonewhite's yellow eyes glinted like stone. "Will he return to Atlantis, Mr. Woolsey?"

Teyla smiled, it was good to be home again. And it felt even more home with McKay's statement, it was so true. She was peckish too, she had to admit it. Ignoring the new warning sign of Wraith proximity (she was NOT going to be fooled twice :P), Teyla exited the jumper, with Ronon close on her heels. The Satedan had woken up as soon as they'd exited the Gate and landed. He meandered over to Keller, letting Teyla go off on her own.

Keller was busy with the med teams, and was giving them instructions. So Ronon hovered close by, ready to help where needed and to get some medical attention himself too.

John went to stretch, but unfortunately with his new bum leg, the medical team and the people on Atlantis had other plans. Not long after the jumper had landed he was hauled onto a stretcher so his bum ankle could be tended to.

Well at least I get a free ride! He thought as he leaned back making the best of it.

As he was wheeled to the medical wing he spotted, McKay Janus and Zelenka at the corner of his eye. Of course McKay was talking about food.

"Hey Rodney," John said as he was wheeled away again trying to make light of his handicap, "if you are going to the dinning hall could you get me a turkey sandwich?"

Mckay turned at the sound of Sheppards voice to see him being hauled off on a stretcher.

"Making the most of it are we? I'll see what i can do, not promising anything tho" And with that he glanced at Zelenka and Janus

"Ok ill meet you back there the minute ive eaten"

Janus inhaled sharply as he looked around. Atlantis. He hadn't been here in literally ten thousand years. It felt strange...it felt like he was coming home again.

But something had changed. He could tell. This wasn't his people's city anymore. It was theirs. The humans'.

He blinked, looking at Sheppard, McKay, and Zelenka. "I thought your leader wanted to "clear" me first?"

Catching a glimpse of Ronon hovering close by, Jennifer looked up and smiled at him. "I need to check that out down at the infirmary," she said, scanning him as he came closer. "And if I tell you you need to rest for 24 hours, you better do it, right?"

As she spoke, Jennifer glanced up at the office, where a Wraith head could be seen. She frowned, and nodded towards it. "What's going on?"

If you know what's good for you, you'll get to the infirmary asap, or I'll come down on your ass soo hard..."

"Would it have killed him to wait one more hour till we'd eaten, i've been shot at and had half of that hideous little planet dumped on me, I need food or I could go into hypoglycemic shock i'll have him know" His tirade over, he strode over to the staircase leading to the gateroom.

They didn't even make it to the infirmary when Chuck's voice came on the intercom asking for him and his team to meet in Wolsey's office.

"You heard the man!" Sheppard staring at the medical team, "I am needed, now take me to Woolsey's office!"

"Colonel," One of the men rolling the stretcher said, "Mr. Woolsey will have to wait we need to take a look at your ankle it is very swollen and could be broken."

John furrowed his brow. They were right, he needed to get his bum leg checked out before anymore damage was done. And more damage ment more time on his ass doing paperwork while his friends were out exploring the galaxy. He fiddled with his radio and contacted Chuck.

"Chuck, this is Sheppard, could you see if you could get me a line into Woolsey's office,", He said before glaring at the medical techs, "I am being held against my will by the medical team."

Now richard wa not normally a man given to anger, but he did give specific orders and to realise they had gone straight to the jumper bay when they could have quite easily have disemarked in the gate room riled him. "I don't care if he's ready for a lobotomy, tell them to carry him if they have to. I want the whole team here now including Doctor Keller, her second MO can take care of the wounded."

Feeling a bit guilty, he called Dr. Keller "Sorry ma'am, Mr. Woolsey said he needs Col. Sheppard whichever his conditions are, and he wants you too, now.... He's quite... irritated...."

Damn it... I have better things to do...! The thought galloped across Jennifer's mind before she could stop it, and she shared an exasperated look with Ronon. "I guess that means we've all been summoned," she added, unable to help the sour note in her voice.

Huffing loudly with irritation, Jennifer went up the stairs leading to the office, and glowered at the hapless Chuck, as she went past him. Fixing a long-suffering expression to her face, she opened the door, hearing the thud of boots behind her. Well, it served Woolsey right if there wasn't enough room in there.

"Thank you Jennifer please take a seat." Richard indicated the one and only spare chair beside the Wraith. "Major Thurston!" He called.

"Yes Sir?" Ruben said as he poked his head in the door.

"Organise some extra chairs will you please."

"Of course sir." Ruben detailed off two SF's who were nearby and within minutes they ahd dragged the required amount from an adjoining office.

"Thank you Major. Now where were we...?" Sheppard had to make him wait, there was nothing Richard could do. The truth be known his injuries were probably little more than an hangnail. Richard was of the opinion that Colonel Sheppard merely craved the attention he would find from the female staff in the medbay. There were thoughts in Woolsey's mind to make sure male nursing staff were sent on the next rotation.

A deep sigh left his lips as he felt the stretcher move smart idea saving the time to transporting him into a wheelchair. He leaned back against the proped up spine of the strecher and closed his eyes. Elizabeth wasn't here only this grumpy ol' bald politician who didn't care about anyone but himself.

He opened his eyes and furrowed his brow, and as he was wheeled into the gate room, he realized Woolsey reminded him, of a certain someone. Someone who crossed his mind one too many times today.

"Woolsey," John said looking darkly into his leader's eyes at the same time hoping he would see his swollen ankle, "have you not read protocol?

"Leiutenant Colonel Sheppard yes I do know what protocol is, I did afterall help to write the manual for both theSGC and Atlantis. That being said, I think you'll agree no matter how badly you are injured at the moment that the fact that almost two million humans have disappeared mysteriously from within our sphere IS an emergency. That and our 'guest' here has come willingly at his own risk with information that might help. This affects us all, and sooner or later these mysterious abductors will come gunning for us and I don't see how we can stop them unless we build alliances."

Woolsey was right in a way, John knew he had been thinking too much negative things today. And the fact that his ankle was throbbing and his boss not caring about it was not helping. However his surperior's response was rather....rude. What "that man" did left a scar in his memories, just like all the haunting events he experienced in his life. It was not easy to get over....but he would grit his teeth and bear it.

"Forgive me then," John continued, though it was kind of halirious to him that he compaired Woolsey to one of Atlantis' many thornes in her side, "I am in a lot of pain and want this damn ankle-"

He cut himself off when he realized there was a Wraith in the room. He frowned. Teyla's senses weren't off after all. And what the hell was a wraith doing on Atlantis! He listened further to hear that this Wraith apparently had information on the abductions that were happening throughout the planet. He was going to be wary. Last time they tried to ally with a Wraith hive, Earth was almost culled.

"Well how do you know these abductions aren't caused by him and his space vampire buddies?" He asked with a smirk as he adjusted himself in the stretcher. "As for Todd, he's with Colonel Hasluck, part of the team exploring was Baku when they were attacked by Rogue Genii....they managed to catch one of them fish before he swam away."

"Think nothing of it Colonel, I understand your predicament." Richard opened a drawer and took out a packet of Tylenol Forte, tore off two blisters and pushed them over along with a glass of water. "Doctor Keller these should alright for him?" He closed the drawer, the down turned photographs still bothered him but there will be time for that. He swivled his chair around to face the Wraith. "As for your Commander, the one we call Todd, the best I can do is try and contact the Apollo and see if they have picked them up. I assume Colonel that was the plan wasn't it?"

As he was speaking Major Thurston came and approached the table, standing next to John, he nodded and spoke low. "Colonel Sheppard, you still owe me fifty from last weeks poker game."

He slanted his head to the side, and examined them all again, then huffed, a little impatient but unwilling to give more. "If it was my plan to come here to destroy you, Colonel Sheppard, then I would have brought more than a single dart, do you not think?"

Turning to the Canadian scientist, Bonewhite chuckled. "Before I blindly give away my secrets, do you not think it would be wise of me to extract some guarantees for myself, the Commander and our Alliance?" He snapped his head back to Hairey. "So... I ask again - the Commander?"

Richard was about to reply to the Wraith when a ping sounded from his computer, a text message showed in timely fashion.

"Fothering replying. Confirmed, he is with Colonel Hasluck, we are due to return in minus fifty five minutes."

He swung his monitor around so that they could all see it. "There is your answer. Colonel Sheppard I asked you to confirm this earlier, were you aware they had beamed up to the Apollo? I take it none of our people are left on the Bakun World?"

"Carson went on the Apollo with Anne and those who were in worst shape, Richard," Jennifer said, and tried to address the burgeoning feelings of rage and distrust. Leaning forward, she scanned the screen of the monitor and addressed the irritated predator beside her. "Todd's on his way back here, I promise, and he is alive and well. Will you accept that from me, Sub-commander?"

Kenny's reptilian gaze rested on her; she could feel it like a brand.

"Yes, Doctor, I will." Hearing him shift, Jennifer sat back and risked a glance at the Wraith, to see him reading the test displayed on the monitor. "Though I feel that before I divulge anything I will need to speak to the Commander."

"That's fine," Jennifer said, and gave Kenny a small smile, and looked across at Woolsey, an appeal in her dark eyes for him to accept this. "I think we'd all feel the same in your position." She hardened her voice. "Wouldn't we?"

The meaningless sound these human's used to describe Guide was enough for Bonewhite to check the console as the young Doctor suggested. Around him, the waves of hostility projected battered at his mind, but he nodded acceptance once he'd finished reading.

Ronon stood behind the two, the doctor and the Wraith, never letting the latter out of his sight. So far, everything went peaceful, but he was wary all the same, even through his tiredness, crankyness, overall soreness, pain, and not in the least his hunger for food. He had to be wary, for Jennifer, although she did hold her own and he felt proud of that. She didn't seem easily scared anymore which was a good thing.

Teyla was sat in a corner, the only seat left available. She did not take part in the discussion but took everything in, hating the fact that her 'spidey sense' had been right, for once. The alliance with the Wraith had never sat right with her and she detested having to go through this, again. The news about yet another planet's missing people, bothered her greatly too. She really wished she had an idea to help but she didn't.

Just as McKay made his announcement/request and a stutter, Ronon's stomach decided to growl. Loudly. It caused a chuckle from Teyla, a much-needed one at that.

Everybody in the room went stock still, and every human eye fastened on the Wraith. For his part, Bonewhite was only interested in the response of the human Queen, Teyla. He could wait to see what she would say.

Jennifer turned her head and thinned her mouth. Subjected to Wraith 'humour' most of the time she'd worked with Todd, she recognised mockery when she heard it. "Time to play nice," she hissed, refusing to be cowed by his reptilian gaze when it rested on her. "Let's try something new... like... oh... an exchange without sarcasm."

Kenny did not reply, he merely smiled, and looked ahead, his face settling into boredom.

Teyla had known it was sarcasm before Jennifer had told the Wraith off. A small debate happened inside her whether or not she should answer as well. She decided not to in the end, yet her eyes told the room it was a struggle. A smouldering, angry gaze finally settled on 'Kenny', aware of his every move. He'd definitely crossed a line, even if it had been a joke.

Meanwhile, Ronon's hands rested on the shoulders of the Wraith, almost crushing them in an iron grip, effectively pinning 'Kenny' to his chair. They'd landed there as soon as the Wraith had spoken. "Careful, *Kenny*", he hissed in the being's ear. "Unless of course you *want* to be imprisoned. And *that's* why you came here."
At McKay's pointed look (even though it was directed at his stomach), he then let go and resumed his pose resting against the wall, arms crossed once again.

As the Satedan's hands left his shoulders, Bonewhite uttered a low rumble. The Commander could not arrive soon enough, in his opinion. This attempt at negotiation was becoming tedious. What made him think these animals, food, would listen to any suggestion he had to make? The presence of the runner spoke more of their prejudice than anything else. He pulled the threads of his patience back together.

"As much as we both dislike the necessity of my arrival here, Runner, you require my... our assistance, and once I have confirmation from the Commander we can proceed, or not." Taking a sharp breath through his nostrils and sensory pits, the air tasted of defiance and hate, and almost mildly, he added, "Imprisonment would serve none of us well."

Now he would wait again, while they ate, and he closed his eyes, effectively shutting them out to concentrate on the distant thoughts of his brothers.

"Proceed with what?" Teyla asked suddenly, her anger having subsided to a point where she could handle it better, though it simmered in the background of her mind, lacing her words.

"Why are you here?" She looked at Kenny directly, ignoring everyone else for the moment. And knowing from previous experience, she knew he would answer.

"It is not only to request Todd's presence here. Tell us. Why?"

Ronon watched her, sensing on some level there was something decidedly different about his friend right now. He couldn't really work out what though, and dismissed it for now. He looked at McKay and shrugged, their quest for food would have to wait a while.

"I am going to have to agree with Dr. McKay," Sheppard said at McKay's suggestion. He was obviously in a lot of pain, even with the aspirin Woosley gave him. "We are hungry and some are obviously injured. A break would be good."

The wraith then made a joke about feeding. John growled and unconsciously resting his hand on his scar. A mark of a wraith feeding. His eyes moved from the Wraith to Ronon who like a approaching hurricane went after the Wraith. He waited for tensions to calm but they only increased. He waited for the answer to question Teyla asked....from the slight throbbing from where his scar was, he had a bad feeling about it.

To all human onlookers Teyla simply turned and left the room as per Woolsey's instructions, though not without a hard glance back at Kenny.
She thought of her last encounter with Todd, unaware she was sending an image of him along with her thought. Simply an image of him laughing, nothing more. ~Very well. Whilst I *understand* your reluctance to comply, I am *sure* the Commander would want you to answer Woolsey's questions. As would I.~ Her command came with a mental tug, Teyla hoped it would be enough but somehow doubted it. There was just something about Kenny's resolve to only talk to Todd, and it made her highly curious. What was so important? Her curiosity drifted along at the end of the thought.

Ronon found himself walking ahead of the group, the prospect of food highly enticing and somehow more important than dealing with all the aches and pains first. He'd always done that while on the run too, food first, pain and wounds later. Food helped the body to deal with its wounds better, it was a basic survival instinct. Memories of that time had flooded back when Kenny had called him a Runner. He hadn't been one for years now, but sometimes it still felt like it was only yesterday that Beckett had pulled the tracker out of him.

The stretcher left the room again and by god was John Sheppard glad of it. It was too tense of a situation to even comprehend with the dark thoughts in his mind. He felt was mistreated. His distresses ignored. He did not trust this situation not one bit. It was like he was gagged and he knew damn well what the feeling was like.

As the stretcher made it's way to medical wing he managed to come close to Rodney and Ronon. Of course Rodney was all excited to be outta there and agreed that it was too tense of a situation but Sheppard was more concerned about Ronon. So he raised his hand indicating for the people wheeling him to slow down.

"I happen to agree with Rodney," John said easing his way into the conversation,"This is a tense situation. I do not trust it nor do I agree we should be playing buddy-buddy with the wraith."

He then turned his head to Ronon and gave him a look of concern.

The Wraith sighed and turned his head to look at Hairy. "You may speak, though I cannot promise to answer, Mr. Woolsey."

It could not be soon enough that Guide arrived in Atlantis. He shifted in the seat, uneasy, and waited for the blade to begin talking. He didn't doubt it woud be more of the same.

Richard looked over the top of his glasses, he knew how the Wraith behaved and he knew of their hierarchial society and he would play on that. "I understand Commander, and I'm sure your leader would agree that anything you and I talk about would be with his approval"

Jaw tightening, Bonewhite resisted the urge to spill his guts like a youngling not yet ready to feed, even though the impulse was strong. The Young Queen was potent. A powerful mind, and he curled his fingers into tight fists.

"You do not understand, Mr. Woolsey," he rasped past clenched teeth. "Now the Commander is known to be alive, I am merely his Second-in-Command. When I came here, it was I who led the Alliance, but now, I do not." He leaned forward, tilting his head at an angle. "Whatever the decision it was that I had come to is no longer valid until the Old One agrees to it." He huffed. "It is no secret that we need a Queen, though, is it?"

"Hmm, I see. Nevertheless it would be unfair of me not to share this with you." He pushed the photographs of Reese over to Kenny. "Now suppose you tell me who this is? She is obviously a Wraith child, not yet developed, or a hybrid of some kind. She had her own squad of drones which she commanded." The photos showed Reese and half of her drones surrounded by a bloddy battlefield. Humans lay near the gate, the bodies torn apart in some wild blood lust frenzy. But there was more, he had film of her as well. "Now for my part I must say as a human I find this disturbing. But there is more. We know this young thing IS not responsible. One of our teams came across another who looks like her at a similar site of carnage. The team engaged with them and the young woman escaped, but not so four of 'her' drones. They were killed in the action and on inspection, we found them to be Genii imposters, wearing disguises to look like Wraith." He sat forward. "The gist of my discussion with you is this, someone is setting this young Wraith up and now there is a bounty on her head on many worlds, I felt you should know."

After Richard finished speaking her turned his monitor back around and played a short film. It was shot from a camera set on top of a gate. The scene showed Reese and her drones coming in, 'after' the battle was over. She is shocked, not by the death of the humans, but merely because she realises what is happening. Seeing the camera though she turns and places her face close and mouths the words "I will kill you for this." Before physically ripping the camera away.

"I'm afraid she is blaming us, so you can see why I wanted to speak to you of this." He said finally.

Her friends' voices brought Teyla back to reality. She briefly closed her eyes, trying to clear her mind. She severed the link with Kenny for now, and focused on the others.

"I'm fine," Ronon grunted back at Sheppard and McKay. "Just hungry." His stomach growled just as he reached the mess hall. The sight of food made his pace go even faster. He'd piled up a really big heap of it and was already shovelling it down his throat before the others caught up with him.

Teyla smiled a little at the sight, she sat down next to him with her own choice of a hearty meal. Far less than Ronon had, but substantial all the same.

Bonewhite's eyes narrowed appreciably when he saw the figure of Reese, and he uttered a long suffering sigh. "She is an outcast among humans, Mr. Woolsey, and I know of her." He moved forward on the seat to examine the scene more closely. "It would appear the Genii are a thorn in your side as well as ours," he remarked, and looked across the table into Hairy's small, dark eyes. "This is fascinating, but does not tell me anything new."

Opposite, the blade made an impatient sound, and the Wraith allowed himself a thin smile. "Perhaps if I were to suggest... hypothetically... that we may have some intelligence about the movements of the Genii?"

Richard's eyes shot up, there was something in the Wraith's tone that gave him away. He knew more about this young thing than he was letting on. But for the moment yes, intelligence on the Genii, at least what seems to be a rebel faction anyway, was imperitive. "Very well I agree, we will share whatever data we have on them. This much I can say, Laden Radim, the Genii leader has informed us that one named Sora is leading a faction against both him and us as well. I believe if we can find this woman, we may find the cause of our troubles."

Bonewhite's mind raced, thinking on the evidence before him and of how he would deal with Reese when he returned to the Hive. Sometimes, the child gave him more trouble than he needed, and for a nanosecond he regreted the impulse that stayed his hand. Still... such rumination would serve no purpose. The Wraith turned his attention back out towards the human.

Cocking his head, he asked, "Sora? The name has come to our notice, though the level of her involvement until now was in question."

Looking pleased Richard was, after all a negotiator he held out his hand and then stopped. "O..um then we have an agreement, shared intelligence on anyhthing dealing with this rebel faction. And to honour this, this is my first instalment." He pushed a large file over to Kenny, within was suspected rebel genii base locations, photograph of memebers and their activities and lastly a signed order from the IOA to eliminate this threat to the Pegasus galaxy in any way possible. "I think that might be helpful" he said at last.

He tapped his coms. "Chuck could you have Dcotors McKay and Zelenka come up here please, oh and I'd like to meet the guest they brought with them."

Somewhat startled by this show of goodwill, the Wraith was at a loss to speak for a moment, and reached tentatively over the table to retrieve the folder. Opening its cover, he scanned through the pictures until he reached a letter, and he paused to read it. Its contents made his brow ridges lift, and he looked up. "This is a death warrant, Mr. Woolsey. Is your IOA so certain they wish to pursue this route?"

"Zero twenty two you are on auto landing cue Colonel welcome back."

"Roger Apollo. Todd you can leave your hands on the controls if you like, so you get the feel for the landing sequence."

The little craft was now being controlled by the Apollo's auto lander. She came around in a broad curve and was in the hangar bay withing seconds. The moment the throttles and brakes shut down Ted opened the canopy. "Major get us out of here, back to Atlantis....now!"

The ship ran up it's familar whirring of engines and as both Ted and Todd exited their 302 the Apollo shifted and was on her way home.

"I know it is, but we have tried diplomacy and failed, they give us no other option I'm afraid and we believe they may be aquiring technology to at least put them on a par with us."

"We'll be right there" He looked over at Janus and nodded

"I believe it's time for you to meet Mr Woolsey, our boss, if you would like to follow me please" And he made his way towards the lab door.

Mckay had joined Teyla, John and Ronon at their table, his plate was only marginally less filled than Ronon's he was part way down it when he heard Chuck, tapping his commlink he spoke with a weary voice

"On my way" He shut it off and with great irritability shoved a big spoonful of potato mash in his mouth.

As soon as the scientist had left, Ronon saw his chance and stole the remainder of the food of Rodney's plate. Upon Teyla's 'look', he just shrugged and continued eating. It was an unspoken contest between them, and he claimed this 'score'.
Teyla had long since finished with her plate and stood up from the table. "I will be in my quarters." She told Ronon and John, smiled at them, and then left, clearly needing some space.

For long moments Bonewhite sat silent, unable to give a response, and he shut the file, placing it on the table, his long fingers resting on its manilla surface. There were stories of humans sacrificing others of their kind to Wraith, of course - offering them up to their gods like the cattle they were. But it was not something he'd expected from these lanteans, and he huffed softly. "This is... a... most unusual circumstance, Mr. Woolsey, and I ask again if this is a step you truly wish to take?" The Wraith allowed himself a dry chuckle then, seeing the humour too. "Certainly, we will be glad to fill our holds again, but we must be certain that such a cull may proceed unhindered."

John was temporarily split from the group. The doctors did not have time to do a full examination so they did the simple tests on pain threshold before wrapping his ankle in an ace bandage, tonight after this mess he would get x-rays. He hobbled on his crutches to cafeteria and sat with Teyla, Ronon and Rodney. There was a nice Turkey Sandwich waiting for him at the empty spot across from Ronon.

He couldn't help but snicker in amusement at Ronon pigging out on his food. Rodney seemed to be taking in the delights of his plate as well. Unfortunately he couldn't stay long since Chuck called him back to meet with Woolsey. With a bow of his head John watched McKay leave in a hurry, leaving his plate behind. Teyla followed suit.

With McKay's plate empty, it seemed that Ronon did not hesitate digging into McKay's plate as well. John laughed before taking a bite of his Turkey sandwich.

"I officially have a new nickname for you," John joked, "King Henry."

He pretended to think about it, holding up a drum stick in the air. "I prefer Chewie." The character the nickname "Chewie" came from, actually was a fond favourite of Ronon's.

"Oh, well, maybe later when i have time, lets go see what Woolsey has for us, altho it cant be good if a wraith is involved" He looked over at Janus as they approached Woolsey's office

It was not the sudden slowing of the human ship that told Todd they had finally arrived back in orbit around the world on which Atlantis floated, rather the sudden and totally unexpected presence of one of his brothers. And not just any presence. This was his Second, the one who should have taken command of the hive in his absence but if that was the case, what was he doing here?

Todd cast a quick look in Hasluck’s direction but it was obvious the Colonel’s many unique skills did not include the ability to tune into the Wraith telepathic network. So flexing his hands and ignoring the warning looks of the mandatory little group of marines who had shadowed him since the 302 arrived back on board, Todd walked over to a large portal that looked out onto blue and green world below. Knowing the Second would have sensed his arrival, there was only one succinct question on his mind. ~Why are you here?~

The mere mention of Lavin was enough to put Ronon of his food, at least temporarily. He pushed his plate away, nothing on it but inedible scraps anyway.

"Okay." He grunted, thinking. Which was when the various pains and aches made themselves known again. He grimaced a little but forced himself to focus on the conversation.

"So, was he a good guy? Or did he fight a lot?" Ronon thought Henry didn't sound like he had been a dictator or anything, but in his experience, kings that had many wives often were. It came with the territory, they had to fight for their place at the top of the food chain.

Returning to survey the surface of the planet below he then extended his thoughts back to his lieutenant. ~We must be cautious.

((OOC - Trill would you mind using this '~' when Wraith talk mind to mind or to each other? Ta. Mwah))
Sorry it's been so long since Todd spoke to other Wraith he forgot himself for a moment... :S

{Todd}

The hesitation in his Second’s voice was not lost on Todd. Turning back to Hasluck, he felt a sudden sense of apprehension that things, the Alliance in particular, had not been going well in his absence. “Colonel, I would like to be beamed down to Atlantis as soon as possible.”

Returning to survey the surface of the planet below he then extended his thoughts back to his lieutenant. ~We must be cautious. As you have no doubt already noticed, these Atlanteans are a skittish race especially when we are on their home territory.~ Yet again Todd looks around, this time to cast a disdainful look at the marines. ~I will be there as soon as I am able.~

Ted heaved his over large shoulders and grinned mischeviously. "We'll still have that Bourbon Todd, today, tomorrow. Major Fothering, drop us in on the control room platform platfrom."

"Aye Sir!"

The familar old blue white Asgard beam did it's job and the two T's lobbed right in front of Woolsey. "Woolsey." Ted said blankly. "I've brought a friend.." He noticed another wraith and nodded in a casual way. "Now if you don't mind, I need a bath, I'll debrief you in half an hour..sir." With that he turned and started away, he spoke quietly to Todd before he left. "Don't leave without me."

On his way down the stairs, Ruben Thurston caught up with his old boss. "Sir team two is back, Lorne is in the com sir."

"Thanks Ruben, I'll see him first."

Ted went to the commisary on swift legs, well for him it was a waltz. He found Lorne eating alone. "Major.." he sat down. "..so how did the flyboy go, find anything useful back on Bakun. Oh and sorry I had to disappear back there, the Wraith and I had some 'business' to do."

The mere mention of Lavin was enough to put Ronon of his food, at least temporarily. He pushed his plate away, nothing on it but inedible scraps anyway.

"Okay." He grunted, thinking. Which was when the various pains and aches made themselves known again. He grimaced a little but forced himself to focus on the conversation.

"So, was he a good guy? Or did he fight a lot?" Ronon thought Henry didn't sound like he had been a dictator or anything, but in his experience, kings that had many wives often were. It came with the territory, they had to fight for their place at the top of the food chain.

It seemed that the mere mention of Lucius Lavin was the only thing that could make Ronon Dex lose his apetite. And John couldn't help but agree with him.

"Eh," He said continuing on with his little history lesson to Ronon, "he really didn't need to fight, anyone who pissed him off never lived to tell the tale."

He then notice the grimace on his friend's face.

"You alright buddy?" He asked in concern, "I know you were injured today too, maybe you should go get checked out."

Evan was sitting on a table near the balcony. He forgone a shower for a bite to eat, all that running through tunnels had his stomach protesting rather loudly the moment he'd gotten off the Jumper.

Swallowing some chicken, he washed it down with juice, made from that strange fruit the botanists were growing on the mainland.
He'd have preferred soda, but with only this and coffee to choose from, the choice was made easy.
Evan tried to keep his caffeine intakes to meetings and late night paperwork shifts. He didn't need himself going through withdrawal on a week long off-world mission.

Inhaling the rest of his meal, the Major was down to licking his fingers clean when someone sat opposite him.
"Colonel." He nodded stiffly, not really looking all that forward to speaking with Hasluck "Save for a minor injury, Sheppard was fine."
Pushing his plate to the side, he leaned slightly back into the chair, wondering why Hasluck didn't just wait till the debriefing "We discovered an Ancient facility, probably an early attempt at Atlantis, but I guess we can ask Janus more on that." Not really sure whether the Colonel knew who Janus was, he then added "Janus is an Ancient we brought back with us. He was hiding there, or something like that. You'd have to ask someone else. But we also got his modified Jumper."

This time he did wait purposefully for the dramatic effect "A Jumper with hyper capabilities. Minor, but still." And so what if he couldn't keep the grin off his face? Evan didn't join the Air Force because he liked things that went slow.

He choose to ignore the 'business' part, not really wanting to know what the man had been up to with the Wraith and pretty damn sure he wouldn't tell even if he asked.
If anyone asked him, Evan was a little concerned at how well his superior officer had taken a liking to the Wraith.
Sure, Todd wasn't an idiot and you could probably hold a decent conversation with him. But he was still a Wraith! His diet consisted of humans!

He listened to the 'history lesson' and just shrugged. "Okay." Too tired to really care about the conversation, though he did like to spend time with Shep since they were close friends, and he felt he at least needed to contribute *something* to the chat.

Upon John's expression of his concern, Ronon replied, "Yeah. Was going to anyway. Figured Keller was too busy so went to get food first." His headache hit him full on then, and he winced just a little. Had the ear injury left him with a concussion after all? It seemed like battle adrenaline had finally worn off, although he knew he would be ready in a second if it was needed. He allowed himself the rest for now though.

"Let's go then." He pointedly looked down at John's ankle and then back to his face, one eyebrow raised. It was clear he intended for John to join him.

{Todd}

After taking his customary few seconds to recover from the beaming process, Todd was just a little surprised to find himself standing face-to-race with his Second and the human commander of Atlantis. His immediate response was a curt nod to his underling before being distracted by his fellow traveller's words, particularly those directed at him.

"Don't leave without me."

Todd growled softly, watching Hasluck's retreating back as he left without waiting for a response of any kind. The growl morphed into a hiss. Enjoyable as it had been working with this rather unusual human, Todd now had more pressing priorities than waiting around for this one to have a bath.

"Mr Woolsey..." his deep multi-toned voice carried an exaggerated tone of mock respect as he tilted back his head and surveyed the human's serious face, "...a pleasure to see you as always." Then keeping his dark eyes on Woolsey he reached out to his Second. ~Now, an explanation.~

Richard was out of his chair in a sprightly flash he looked at his 'guest' as he left his chair. "This should be interesting, would you come with me please." As he reached the control room he tapped his coms. "This is Richard Woolsey, commander of Atlantis. If you are on a planet with your craft, you should land and come through the gate, we will lower our shield. We have others of your people with us." He turned his head to Kenny. "I hope you can vouch for this fellow."


"I will vouch for your safety, Mr. Woolsey," Bonewhite said, irritated. "It is a single dart, so scarcely a huge threat to this city."

~Our Alliance is in tatters, Commander, brought about by the destrction of the uber-hive, and without a Queen we cannot bring others to support our faction ~ Bonewhite watched Woolsey, but inclined his head towards Todd respectfully, speaking aloud for the benefit of the humans. "I am pleased to see you alive, Commander, and regret that I have not had time to inform you of my presence here." Straightening his shoulders, Bonewhite huffed as he continued to mindspeak, ~I came to offer assistance to the Lanteans in the form of information, and as a last resort... a ZPM ~

Mckay Zelenka

Mckay and Zelenka stopped in their tracks as Woolsey came past them and the familiar white light of the Asgard beam left two people standing in front of them, Mckay spoke with the sarcastic tone he was known for

"Oh, great,he's back"

Zelenka just mouthed almost inaudibly.

"Yes" While Janus just looked on placidly.

Mckay looked towards Woolsey

"So whats the problem,?"

And so it was that Sheppard and Ronon made their way to the Infirmary. Sheppard on his stretcher and Ronon walking beside him. They found the place to be crowded and Ronon looked around, trying to spot Keller or Beckett.

"Doctor? You got a minute?" Ronon called.

{Todd}

A succinct explanation. Not what he wanted to hear but then Todd was getting used to being the recipient of bad news. Contacting the Lanteans would have been his own course of action so finally turning his eyes to Bonewhite, he responded with a subtle nod. ~I am surprised to see you here but we can discuss this later.~

Anxious as he was to know more of the Alliance’s problems, the priority now was to calm the agitation being generated by this single dart. Turning back to the Lantean commander a condescending smile flashed briefly across Todd’s face. “I agree with my Second that a single dart is no threat to you Mr Woolsey and I think we should go together to find out what brings it here.”

{Janus}

As he walked behind Zelenka and - Doctor McKay, was it? - Janus regarded the room with a thoughtful gaze. Human technology was everywhere...it was home, but so unlike home.

He shifted uncomfortably, noticing the guards' wary gazes. They had had trouble with his kind in the past. He could sense their distrust, their wariness. It was very unsettling. He heard voices and realized that they must have reached their destination.

He looked to the origin of the voices, and immediately his eyes widened in shock. Wraith. Wraith in Atlantis. Anger boiled up within him, and before he knew it he had snatched a weapon from one of the nearby security officers and was pointing it at the offending Wraith. He took a step back, shouting in Ancient, and aimed the weapon at them. It flew through his mind that he didn't know how to use it, but he'd figure it out.

"What in the hell are they doing here?!" the former ascended Alteran snarled with anger.

The Wraith looked up, shocked to hear Ancient spoken so fluently again after so many decades, and he took an involuntary step back. "Lantean...!" he hissed.

The figure of the Ancient pointed a weapon towards where he and the Commander stood, fury coming at him in waves. Unarmed, Bonewhite could do little more than rely on the goodwill of the humans around him.

Surprise flickered across Janus' face. "A-allies?"

He lowered the weapon, feeling foolish. The sight of the Wraith had surprised and angered him so much that he had acted in haste. He stared at his feet for a moment before looking up at McKay, his dark blue eyes flickering to the Wraith for a moment, anger welling up in him, before looking away, sighing.

Janus handed the gun back to the nearby security officer, who looked rather annoyed, and took a calming breath. "I apologize, I acted in haste. It is just that the sight of Wraith in Atlantis...after what they did to my people..." his voice trailed off, and he shook his head.

<Teyla's room>

Sighing, Teyla rose to her feet. This session would not be fruitful. She'd been meditating for a while now, or at least tried to. But she did not find the calmness she sought, she simply could not. There was too much on her mind it seemed. And the fact that she picked up the Wraith minds constantly didn't help matters much either. There were two of them now. Todd had returned. She'd recognised his mind-feel instantly and had sent a greeting thought, almost absent-mindedly so. Even if he'd laughed at her before, she would remain courteous.

Sighing once more, Teyla left her room, in search of.... anyone but the Wraith, even though she knew she was going to run into them sooner or later. It was simply unavoidable.

<Gate room>

She arrived at the gate room just at the end of a possible fight, it seemed. Teyla stood at the balcony overlooking the gate room and watched the scene impassively.
Two Wraith, an overexcited Ancient and of course Woolsey and others. Was she going down there? Best not. She did not have the wish to interact with them, not when her mind was this fragile, this easily upset. It had been this way since the first day they'd discovered people missing from their planets, and Baku was just one in a long row.

~We must watch this one carefully.~ Todd kept his eyes fixed firmly on the Lantean as he uttered this warning to Bonewhite. Despite the apology he knew their old enemy was even less trustworthy than the new inhabitants of Atlantis.

“Thank you Doctor McKay.” He nodded briefly at the scientist before returning to the Lantean. He knew he should be civil to this one but memories of the war and flashed across his mind and he could not resist an opportunity to gloat about the victory in which both he and Bonewhite participated. “Many things have changed since you lost the war but I see you are still prone to assume the worst before fully understanding the truth of a situation. You would do well to remember why you were defeated.”

Mckay beathed a sigh of relief when Janus handed back the gun,he half smiled at the ancient and acknowledged Todds thanks with a nod

"Well, glad thats over, and FYI, we wernt so keen on having them here either, i can understand how you feel, them nearly wiping you out and all, despite all your technology and might i say your arrogance, but thats all water under the bridge now so,lets try to get along shall we" He looked over to Woolsey completly oblivious to his own foot in the mouth disease.

A smug smile crossed Todd’s face as he contemplated taking the energy from this Lantean remnant but such an action was not achievable now so he satisfied himself with one more dig at his old enemy. “How true to character. Even after ten thousand years a defeated Lantean is still as arrogant as ever.”

But he would not allow this little confrontation to sidetrack his and Bonewhite’s purpose so, without waiting for a reply, he turned back to Woolsey. “We were on our way to find out why one of our darts has come to your city before being distracted by this one’s arrival. I believe that is still more important than wasting our time here.”
