Chapter 1

A Few Hours later

"Don't you think we should set up camp for the night instead? I don't know about you guys but I don't fancy hunting for the Stargate in the night," Daniel said.

I swore rather violently under my breath. I need to find some food, I thought.

This was my mistake.

I should have heard them coming, I should've figured on them finding me. But, I lit the fire anyway, not even thinking about the smoke. Next thing I knew a pair of strong arms had grabbed me from behind.

"Let go of me!" I yelled.

"Okay," a female voice replied.

"Oof!" I hit the ground with a whump.

"Who are you and how did you get here?" O'Neill asked. Instead of replying, she sat down, criss-crossed her legs and clamped her mouth shut. She saw her bow and arrows and reached for them.

"Oh no you don't," Sam said pulling it out of reach.

"Please release me and let me leave," the girl said.

"Carter, can I talk to you?" asked O'Neill standing off to the side.

"Does she seem familiar to you at all?"

"No, why?"

"No reason."


Daniel went and sat in front of the girl and asked her to "Tell us your story."

"My name is Nataia and I am one of a few remaining survivors of the planet Anaos."

"Almost one year ago you visited our planet and talked with my adoptive parents. I listened to you-"

"I knew she looked familiar," O'Neill muttered.

"- in hopes of catching anything that may be of importance. Two days after you left, my parents led an uprising against the System lord Shaq'ran; when he learned of this, he sent an army of Jaffa to put a stop to it. The instigators, including my parents, were put to death. I managed to escape with several men, women and children from our village. We fled into the woods, but had very few supplies. We hoped he would leave a few days later. When he didn't, we grew desperate. We had an ally among Shaq'ran's ranks - she helped us steal a ship. We eventually found this planet. It seemed safe. We thought we had found a safe haven here." She stopped to take a breath, before resuming her story. "When you found me earlier I was hunting for food for the camp. I had a slight run in with an angry boar and ran farther than intended from camp. 'When I saw you, I remembered you and decided to follow in the hope of finding the Stargate again." Nataia fell silent.
