    Lie'na

    Lie'na nodded, almost reaching out to look into the woman's eyes properly, but it would only taint what she had already done, instead she bowed her head again before speaking.

    "I forgive you for lack of 'tact'." She spoke the word oddly, as if it was new to her, well not even 'as if', it was new to her. "And wish it were... My place... To forgive be."

    She raised her head again, beginning to gently sing, not one of her strange lyric-less songs, but a true song, one she had sung aloud only twice. Once at the grave of her Mother, once in the cage of Camulus for her Father. She sung now for all that had been lost, by all assembled.

    'Hollow footsteps, cloaked by night
    Of sadness known through tortured sight;
    The willow weeps for solitude
    As Owl moans a gloomy interlude.
    - Reflection in the glossy lake
    "If I should die before I wake..."
    A tear shatters the silent face
    That seeks solace in this deserted place.
    Wind whispers through the willow's leaves,
    And Owl, perched high, silently grieves.
    The glow from city lights afar
    Swallow whole a falling star.
    A wish upon the trembling lips
    For peace. A raven gently sips
    The water near his honored guest,
    But soon flies to his hidden nest.
    Weary beneath the flowing cloak,
    The traveller rests against an oak
    And fights the lure of heavenly sleep.

    Forever lost, each journey taken
    Plagues the mind; the nights awaken
    Troubled visions, thoughts of yesterdays,
    That seem like beacons - lives away.
    Random comforts cannot ease this soul,
    For knowledge takes its weary toll
    'Pon one who suffers with each breath,
    Who slept once in peace, then awoke in death..'


    She trailed off, finishing with a repeat of the last line, unashamed tears running down her face as she spoke the last words.

    'Who slept once in peace, then awoke in death.'

    How she could sing the song from memory she knew not, it was one thing which had never faded from her troubled mind. She could not pick out individual words, only sing them as she had done twice before.

    She had not sung loud, but the silence she heard as she finished drove more tears down her face. She gently wiped them away with her hand, tasting the saltiness of the tears as she moved it over her lips.

    She looked back at Sorrel.

    "For all loss." She explained, her mouth forming into the smallest, saddest smile.

    "I once thought it better to be right
    But now I have finally seen the light
    Sometimes you've got to be wrong and learn from mistakes
    I live with serenity now, not self righteous hate.

      "Perhaps I'd better quickly finish this and go to bed" Alex said, after David's warning.

      But since it seemed that the argument wasn't going to escalate, Alex could continue eating his dessert at his own pace, and enjoy it more.
      "You know those people then?" Alex asked David, in between spoonfuls.

      "Um, not all of them, just Sorrel," Williams replied, somewhat glad for the intrusion in the scared thoughts. But then words failed again as the Jaffa began to sing. He listened, and the emotion was loud and clear. He couldn't help but swallow a lump away, he guessed that everyone in this room was probably affected similarly. As far as apologies went, wow, David had never thought that this would happen.
      It was a bit of a shock, and he knew he could not bear much more of this. Emotionally, he had had quite enough. The linguist knew he had to seek solitude now, there was no other way around it.

      When it was all quiet again, he whispered to Alex, "Sorry, Alex, but I have to go for now. I'll see you later perhaps. Bye bye." With a smile and a nod, and he was gone, very quickly, hopefully before anyone else noticed.

        Mess hall

        Lance nearly choked on his piece of streak that he was eating at Kim’s words regarding Zack and looked at Kim with wide eyes as Jenkins left to table. She just did not have Zack ‘pretending’ to be married. Seeing the smirk playing her face and the gleam that was tugging him at the same time, he had to wonder what she was cooking up. But he was sure she would drag him along in her plans soon enough. Polishing is beef off, he looked up to see Zack after the man threw the fork and bid them good night before walking out of the mess, “Whoa...Zack...wait...” but it was too late the man had already turned a corner and was gone out of sight.

        His gaze turned to Kim, who was trying not to bit her lower lip and wince, “I think you might want to cut him some slack,” he told her as his hand covered hers, for a brief moment then he pulled it away, “He’s just starting out with her. I think all he’s asking is for some patience’s and a space. I know you are trying to protect him and her, which I think is great, but ribbing him like this Kim just might not what he needs. Not out in the open. Perhaps I’m taking a wild guess here. We both know Chris isn’t aware of it. They might be waiting on telling him before the ribbing could start.

        He gazed deep in her eyes, and watched a swirl of emotions inside the green depths, “Just keep in the private till say tomorrow. I know might not be much. But I’m sure they both would be grateful for it,” he knew this would get her thinking.

          Alex didn't show any sign that the song had affected him, but his dessert didn't seem so enjoyable anymore.
          "Yeah, OK, bye" Alex said, but David had already gone.
          Alex gave up on eating his dessert. His thoughts went to his family. All of them had died when the Earth was destroyed.
          Alex couldn't stay any longer. He got up from the table, and left the mess hall, heading along the hallway to the lift.

            Mess Hall

            Kim bit her lip when Zack glared and shot daggers through his eyes, oh yea the med were reacting. She chewed on her tongue when he stormed out. Trying not to wince, her head jerked when Lance spoke, “Oh come on. It’s not like I’m really going to tell Sharp. Of course he knows about what’s going on between the two of them,” she told him as they got up from where they were sitting, as she watched him pick up his dishes and place them for the wash, and saw the look he send her, “Oh....” she blew a raspberry at him only to see his eyebrow rise.

            You’re talking about the current situation?” she asked they made their way out of the mess hall, and poked the elevator button, “well then he doesn’t know. While I’m eager to tell the Colonel, I’m not going to. Just picking on Zack about it is more fun.

            Stepping in when the doors opened, “So we call it a night?” she looked at him, seeing how he could get a double meaning, “you know to our respective bedrooms.

              ((Alex and DG-Sorry this took so long. I've been running in six different directions with finals starting tomorrow, and kind of managed to overlook the activity in here, until I saw this post indicating that it was Sergio's turn to say something. Anyway, here it is. ))

              [SF Sergio Stricker]

              Sergio sat as still as a statue, in stunned silence, as the Jaffa woman began to sing. It was a song he had never heard before, but one that instantly touched him. Normally, the SF wouldn't have let any emotional reaction show on his face, but tonight, his expression was one that could only be described as awed. He noticed a few people, including the geek from earlier, David, get up and leave before the song was finished. He supposed that he really couldn't blame them. The song was hard to listen to after going through everything that the people left behind had experienced. And honestly, if he wasn't as trained as he was in the ways of emotional control, he might have joined them in leaving. But something more powerful than his own will kept him glued to his chair.

              Finally, Lie'na finished her song, bringing a stunned silence to the inhabitants at the table. Sergio was the first to speak in reaction to the beautiful tune. His voice was quiet, and almost strained sounding, as if it was difficult for him to get the words out. "That was beautiful, Lie'na. It, uh....it means a lot. I'm sure that everyone who heard it would agree. Thank you for sharing it." Sergio managed to say and then cleared his throat as if trying to regain some of the strength to his voice.

              Sergio looked down at his empty plate and realized that he had finished his food some time ago. Probably while that geek had been talking to the two women at his table. Looking up at Sorrel, he offered the Foreston woman a smile, and spoke to her. "So, you ready to call it night? I've got to get back to my post in the hanger, and I'm sure that you and Lie'na could both use a good night's rest." He tried smiling his encouragement to Sorrel, but the smile was only half-hearted, since most of his mind was still on Lie'na's song.

                Sorrel had found something she could understand as perfect common ground between them. Of course, a Palarian Singer would never work in an environment like this, but the song and voice was worthy of the highest-ranking Singers.

                She smiled and stood up, hearing Sergio mention that he had to return to his post. Sorrel curtsied to the Jaffa woman, words really didn't apply when acknowledging the abilities of a Singer.

                "Yes, yes, yes, of course. You must return to duty, not good to be late. And it is late. Must get some sleep, open shop tomorrow like always. Business doesn't run itself, after all." She waited for Sergio's guidance on where exactly she would sleep. She wasn't going to wander aimlessly around a military post.

                  Sergio stood as Sorrel did, but turned to Lie'na before leaving the mess hall. "Lie'na, would you like an escort back to the guest quarters as well? Since you came with the Romans and the children, I assume that's where you're staying?" He considered it part of his job as an SF to offer his assistance to every guest on the base, regardless of who they were.

                    Lie'na

                    Lie'na cheek's tinged red slightly as people started leaving, because of her song, and because of Sergio's remark, she merely nodded, words couldn't describe what she wanted to say. Not even if she knew every single one of them.

                    She nodded again at Sergio's question, doubting she would actually get more Kelnorim over the evening. The song might have affected everyone in the room, but it always affected the singer the most. Tonight she would have unpleasant memories for sure.

                    Mind already partially away she waited for Sergio to lead her where she needed to go, following him on automatic.

                      Sergio found Lie'na's sudden silence a little disquieting, but didn't question her on it. Instead, he simply grinned and led the way to the elevators that would take them to the guest quarters. "It's not far, ladies, be there before you know it." He idly chatted as they walked, just to hear his own voice and keep the short trip from being too boring.

                        Sharp walked into the mess having had quite a good sleep. "Let's see here..." He said to himself as he grabbed a tray, cup, plate and silverware. He piled on the cheese-eggs but left enough room for the sausage.

                        He made his way over to the chocolate milk- it had just been refilled. He poured a glass, took a gulp, and then topped it off, setting it on his tray.

                        He turned to see who was there.

                        ((I have yet to read back a page or two to see what time-continuum all the people here are in- but for Sharp this is his morning breakfast

                            Claire arrived into the mess hall a little bit more awake, and perhaps just in time to see Sharp top up his plate with eggs and sausages along with an overfilled glass of milk. Smiling fondly as she made her way to the chow line and settled for the eggs, coffee and a glass of his chocolate milk. Grabbing her choices she made her way to annoy her favorite Colonel, plus try to work up the courage to tell him about Zack and her, which was still working its way through her system, since the whole thing was still new. She wondered how he would take then news. Would he kill Zack or was he likely to lock her in her room; or do both.

                            Finding the whole thing amusing she took a seat at her old table and when she realized what she was about to do she winced, habits were going to be hard to break, “Need some company?” she asked looking at him.

                              [From Quarters]

                              Ray walked in, nodding happily at Sharp as he passed his table, grabbing a tray and grinning at Swanson, who already had two eggs just the way he liked them on a plate.

                              "Anything else Ray?" They both grinned at each other, and Swanson added the extra's Ray asked for. "So no Queen to go with that then?"

                              Ray chuckled, Swanson had obviously heard talk from somewhere of his morning routine.

                              "Already had my fill this morning." Swanson chuckled too, passing him the plate. "Mmm... smells great. As usual, cheers mate."

                              With that he stepped away from the counter with a glass of juice, which was anything other than orange.

                              "Morning you two." He said, the grin still firmly in place, to Sharp and Davis. "I wouldn't be interrupting any private chat if I sat down with you would I?"

                                Sharp turned from his scan of the mess hall to see his former team-member. "Well, good morning!" Things weren't too different at all....

                                He followed her to a table and sat down, immediately putting a sausage into his mouth. "You sure caused some emotion..." He commented. (I guess you can choose whether she replies before Vincent and Ray get here or not).

                                Sharp looked over his shoulder. "Good mornin- take a seat!" He took a sip of milk. "Good news you too- I'm supposed to find out where the hell our little gray friends have been these past few months...hopefully we can have one of their guys look over that shielding plan."

                                "It's the one we got in the alternate reality."
                                He said to Claire- trying not to exclude her from the conversation.
