Valentine's Day

a/n: I know this is a little late for Valentine's Day but at least it's published in the same month. It's not really that late. :) Anyways hope you enjoy don't forget to review and let me know what you think.

Today was Valentine's Day. Supposedly the most romantic day of the year. Tonight Sam was supposed to go out to dinner with her husband but instead was stuck in the infirmary with broken ribs and a fairly deep gash on her upper thigh.

On SG1's last mission they ran into a little Jaffa resistance upon returning to the gate. They were relatively unscratched compared to what could have happened.

Daniel got his glasses broke and a few cuts and bruises, Vala had a few scratches, Cam got a bloody nose and some stitches, Teal'c, of course, didn't have a scratch on him, and Sam was the only one that landed in the infirmary.

They had all come by earlier and said their goodbye's and Happy Valentine's. Then they went out to celebrate. Now she was left alone in the empty infirmary.

She didn't know how long she'd been asleep but when she woke up she wasn't alone. Jack was there.

"Hey there." he said as she opened her eyes and rolled over on her side.

"Hi," she said with a smile, "what are you doing here?"

"Is it a crime to come visit my wife?" he asked with a smile.

"No it's not. I'm glad you're here." she said.

"Me too." he said as he leaned over and gave her a kiss.

Sam looked at him for a second then said "I'm sorry."

"Why?" he asked.

"Because I ruined our plans to go out to dinner tonight for Valentine's Day."

"That doesn't matter." he paused and took her hand in his and kissed it, "All that matters is that I'm with you."

"I love you." she said.

"I love you too. Happy Valentine's Day." he said as he gave her another kiss.

They stared into each others eyes and talked for awhile until Sam was to tired and lost the battle to stay awake.

Sam woke up at one point but Jack wasn't there. She fell back asleep within a matter of minutes.

The next time she woke up she saw Jack watching her with a big smile on his face.

"Why are you smiling?" she asked.

"Because your beautiful," he paused, "and because I have a surprise for you."

"A surprise for me?" she asked with a smile.

"Yes, close your eyes."

"OK," she said as she sat up and positioned he legs over the edge of the bed.

"No peeking." he said.

"I won't."

Sam heard him making lots of noise like he was moving things around. Which knowing Jack, he probably was.

"Can I look now?" she asked.

"Not yet."

She waited for a few seconds and said "OK how about now?"

"No, not yet."



"Jack can I please open my eyes now?"

"Ok open your eyes."

When Sam opened her eyes she saw a table sitting next to her bed. It had a beautiful table cloth, fancy looking plates and silverware, and even two lit candles sitting on it.

"What is this?" she asked.

"Well since we couldn't go out to dinner, I brought dinner to you."

"I love it. Thank you." she said as tears started to form in her eyes.

"Your welcome." he paused, "Sam what's wrong?"

"Nothing, it's just so beautiful."

"Well Happy Valentine's Day Sam." he leaned over and gave her a passionate kiss on the lips, "I love you."

"I love you too Jack O'Neill." she smiled as they shared another kiss.

A candle lit dinner in the infirmary wasn't exactly how Sam had envisioned her Valentine's Day. But knowing that her husband loved her enough to bring a romantic dinner to her, was the best gift of all.

The End

Well that's it. Please review and let me know what you think.
