Before John had left Ronon and Jennifer on the planet by themselves, he had told them that he would keep a line of communication open just in case something went wrong. Well apparently it had - no big surprise there with Jinx involved.

When Chuck had received Ronon's frantic radio transmission, John was off-world with Teyla, Rodney and Major Loren and his team of six Marines. They were protecting Zelenka's science group who were trying to locate five ZedPMs on a planet which was reported to have quite a few hostiles. Actually Rodney was more like ordering poor Zelenka and the science team around rather than protecting them.

Chuck immediately contacted Colonel Sheppard. He told John how Ronon was going on and on in regards to a dark haired Wraith with red eyes and something about Dr. Keller disappearing through rock.

Sheppard ordered Rodney, Maj. Loren and his team to stay with the science team. John took Teyla and four Marines to go check out Ronon's story. Not that he didn't believe the big guy, but a wraith with red eyes and black hair? And not that ZedPMs were more important than Dr. Keller's life, but Ronon was talking nonsense. The common enemy that they all knew and hated did not have black hair nor red eyes.

While making his way back to the village, worried thoughts flooded Ronon's mind like a swarm of angry bees. Thoughts such as: Where had the creature come from? How did it have the ability to walk through a solid piece of stone and take Jennifer with it? Why take Jennifer in the first place. Were there more? Was she unharmed? What was it doing to her? With each new concept, the knot of fear grew. A dark foreboding feeling coiled tight in his gut; it was ready to strike out with the worst thought of all – Was she dead?

Growling – he mentally swatted that last troubling thought from his mind – and ran even faster. Drawing upon his military training, he focused on the most important objective: Get Jennifer Keller back safe and sound! The second most important objective: Kill the son-of-a-bitch that took her!

By the time Ronon made it back, Sheppard and Teyla were talking to the elders and their wives in front of the council building. Four Marines were standing off to the side waiting for orders.

Sheppard saw Ronon and started walking in his direction.

"Ronon, so what's…." Colonel Sheppard's question was cut short when, without breaking stride, Ronon interrupted, "This is all you brought?!" Then proceeded to walk right past him.

Ronon's sights were set on the elders – the look on his face had them moving back a few steps! Ronon demanded to know what the hell was up with the ruins in the forest. They had said this was a peaceful planet - Wraith-free! The terrified men swore that what they had told him was true! That their planet had never been invaded by the Wraith before.

"We cannot explain it, good sir, but our planet is free of the Wraith!" said a meek little man whose robes nearly swallowed him whole. His squeaky little voice grated on Ronon's last nerve.

"Bullshit!" roared Ronon, pointing his finger at the councilman. Ronon's expression had the man's wife fainting dead away. The timid little man barely caught his wife in time before she hit the ground. Struggling, he carried her to a nearby bench - patting her cheeks to revive her.

Feeling that he was being called a liar, he stated in a deadly tone that held no room for contradiction and he looked at each councilman as he spoke, "I've seen with my own eyes a black-haired Wraith with red eyes take Dr. Keller and disappear through a large fragment of stone!"

Turning towards John and Teyla he said "Either it was a hybrid of some kind or something indigenes to this planet.". The three councilmen began muttering amongst themselves.

The chief elder, Trudon, caught Ronon's attention. The man was wringing his hands; shaking his head when his wife spoke to him. She looked extremely agitated. Ronon walked up to him and grabbed him by the front of his robes – lifting him practically up off the ground. His wife jumped back startled – her eyes wide and her delicate hand covered her mouth. Trudon whimpered. Ronon was just only inches from the man's face. He could barely contain his rage. Ronon demanded the truth or he was going to start creating some major damage - starting with the man's face.

John stepped up to Ronon trying once again to talk to him. "Hey Buddy calm down a bit, okay?" He did not touch Ronon because he knew, from past experiences, that when he was like this the only one to calm him was Jennifer and at the moment that was not happening. "We're going to find her. I promise!"

Neither letting go of the man nor taking his eyes off him, Ronon snarled, "Calm down?! He knows something" gripping tighter to the man's robes and shaking him, Ronon bit out "and I want to know what it is!" Trudon just stared helplessly. His wife softly pleaded "Please sir! We…we are telling the truth!" After a few seconds Ronon let go of the man's robes with a disgusted snort.

The chief elder adjusted his clothing with trembling hands and suggested that they all go inside the council building to discuss this matter away from prying eyes. There had been a growing number of townsfolk showing up to see what all the fuss was about.

"We don't have time dammit! The sun is going to be setting in less than an hour! We need to go back to the ruins before it gets dark!" he said standing in front of John. "She's there! We can't waste time with them!" - waving his hand towards the men and their wives.

John took Ronon off to the side. "Okay, this is how we're going to handle things. Teyla and I are going to go inside with the elders and get to the bottom of this."

"You", John had placed his hand in the middle of Ronon's chest to stop him from going inside the building - dangerous move he knew but...- "are going to stay out here. We can't have you scaring the crap out of them with that Death Stare thing you got going on now. Besides they might clam up and not tell us what we need to know. Okay?"

Jaw clenched; Ronon gave a curt nod.

"I'll have the Marines spread out and canvas the surrounding area." Then John dropped his hand from Ronon's chest and lowered his voice for only him to hear, "I know big guy how you must feel." John glanced over to Teyla who was ushering the elders and their wives into the building. If the roles were reversed, he'd feel the same way. He now felt terrible that he had not taken this situation more seriously and brought Rodney along with 20 more Marines.

Continuing John said, "We just can't go off half-cocked and rush into something that might end up getting Jennifer killed." Once again Ronon nodded his understanding. "You stay out here; cool off, and when we've got something we'll go find her together. Okay?"

Ronon stared at John and said in a tone that left no room for debate, "I'll give you 15 minutes. If you haven't gotten the information we need by then, I'm coming in and getting it! One way or another! Understood?!"

John nodded, "Perfectly!"
