Thirteenth in my Alphabet Holiday series



Daniel placed a hand on Cameron's forehead.

"Still here Jackson." Cam slurred.

"Do you want some water?"

Cam nodded and Daniel held his head up giving him a little bit.

"Sam and Teal'c?" Cam asked breathily

"Working on the gate."

Cam nodded.

"How's the leg?"

"It's fine." Daniel lied.

"I was gonna go home...ya know?"

"See your girl?" Daniel teased.

"Yeah." Cam smiled.

"We're gonna get you home." Daniel patted his shoulder.

"Go home...eat myself full...watch the games...go to midnight mass...you ever been to one Jackson?"

"One what?" Daniel asked wincing at the throb in his leg.

"Midnight mass. All candlelit...and the choir sounds...like angels."

"Sounds nice."

"You should come."

"I have plans but thanks for the invite."

"You and...General O'Neill?"

"Yeah."

"Glad ya won't be...alone." Cam nodded and coughed wincing.

"Just hang in there Cam."

"Tryin'...tell me...yours."

"My what? Christmas?"

"Yeah."

"When my parents were alive we'd celebrate,have whatever the traditional meal was wherever we were at the time. I got books mostly but I loved them. The books and my parents." Daniel clarified.

"After...that...?"

"Not much to tell til I came back to Earth from Abydos. Jack insisted on the whole shebang,tree,lights,meal,gifts. I know he did it for me."

"Good...friend."

"The best I've ever had." Daniel nodded,"I consider you my friend too you know?"

"Same...here."

"DanielJackson,ColonelCarter has opened the gate,help will be here soon."

"Told you Cam." Daniel smiled at their injured leader.

Cam,Amy and his parents attended midnight mass then returned to the farm for a good nights sleep.

"Who the devil called while we were at mass?" Mr. Mitchell wondered seeing the light blinking on the answering machine.

He pressed the messages button.

'Hey Cam,it's Daniel,I know you're at mass--yes Jack,I know Santa can't come til I go to bed,I'll be there in a minute. You'd never know he was a two star General! Anyway,just called to wish you a Merry Christmas. See you on the second--Jack give me the--Hey Mitchell,it's O'Neill,Merry Christmas,now it's time for all sleepy archaeologists to hit the sack--that's my sore leg Jack! Can it Daniel,go to bed. Bye Mitchell.'

Cam chuckled at the men.

"You have some very odd co-workers honey." Mrs. Mitchell said.

"Yeah...they're the best. Merry Christmas Jackson." Cam smiled and they headed to bed too.
