Selena's eyes were wide with shock and astonishment. She would have backed away, but her father stood directly behind her keeping her in place. The young girl remained there in shock and awe looking at her mother who was also now a young girl albeit with red eyes. Gone was the middle aged woman that she'd seen just moments ago.

Ariana spoke to the SGA team, "This stone ruin is one of the many gateways to my home world – our home world." – nodding to Drakari who still knelt at her feet. "Our home is not a planet like the ones you have visited countless times, but actually another dimension. A dimension where magic reigns and beings beyond your imaginations dwell."

She stood regally as she continued to explain, "I was promised to another of my kind when I wished not to be. I ran away. Came here and found love." She smiled at Trudon who lovingly smiled back.

"I quickly became pregnant and decided to raise the child in this world. With my powers I aged along with my husband. I knew my father would be looking for me so I cast a cloaking spell around the ruins." At that confession, Drakari made a sound of realization – that is why her trail was so hard to track!
"Once Selena was born her father and I made it so that this place was forbidden and for 20 wonderful years I have been content with my life."

Ariana placed a hand upon Drakari's shoulder, "Stand and show my daughter your true self!"
He struggled with himself to obey his sovereign's daughter. He had kept his identity concealed from Selena. He did not want to frighten her. He knew from pure instinct that she was his true mate. He knew it from the first time he laid eyes on her. That was why he had given her the binding necklace to make her his.

"Show her!"

The muscle in his jaw ticked. Drakari stood – his six and a half foot frame towering over Ariana. His eyes were just as red as the princess's when he looked at Selena. He then spread his arms out wide and large black wings – such as a dragon's – emerged from his back – each nearly ten feet with a clawed hook on both. The total wingspan – from tip to tip – was a good twenty feet. Drakari's hands had the razor sharp claws and his teeth had elongated into fangs. Everyone gasped and raised their guns towards the terrifying creature.

The only reaction Drakari was waiting on was Selena's. He was ready for her to show horror and disgust. To his surprise, she walked towards him, reached up and placed a gentle hand upon the side of his face. With the smile that she bestowed upon him lifted the dread from his heart.

Within seconds he retracted his wings, claws and fangs. Smiling back down at her, his light blue eyes showing pure joy, he said, "I have something that belongs to you – if you still want it." He reached into his coat pocket and withdrew the binding jewel. She beamed.
"Yes!" she exclaimed, but before she could take it her mother voiced her concerns.
"Tell her what it means to accept such a gift."
He took a deep breath in looking at his love. Drakari stated simply, "If you accept this gift, then we are bound to each other. We will be wed. Do you accept?"
Selena looked at the pendent and it felt as if her soul had been returned to her. Taking the necklace she proclaimed, "I accept!"
Drakari released the breath that he had been holding; picked her up and spun her around. Both were smiling and laughing together when a clearing of a throat brought their attention back to the group.

Trudon now stood behind his wife. Ariana hugged her daughter and looked sternly at Drakari. "Take care of her or you will personally deal with me!"

"Yes, Your Majesty! As you command!"

Taking Selena's hand, Drakari walked over to where Ronon and Jennifer stood. The small team of Marines situated behind them shifted their weapons to the ready, but Sheppard indicated with his hand to lower their guns.

When Drakari came to stand in front of Jennifer, Ronon protectively took a step forward ready once again to do battle. Both warriors stood facing each other. Jennifer placed a hand on Ronon's arm to reassure him that everything was okay.

Looking down at her, Drakari stated in his low-toned voice, "You are a very brave woman. You stood in harm's way to protect an enemy that did not show you much kindness." He took Jennifer's hand and placed within it a perfectly cut ruby stone then closed her fingers around it.

Ignoring Ronon's rumbling growl, Drakari continued, "If you are ever in need of my blade, all you need do is place this jewel at the base of the ruin and call my name. I will be yours to command." He let loose her hand and stepped back beside Selena.

Jennifer took the jewel without saying a word but nodded her understanding.

The sun was starting to make its appearance known by streaking the sky with beautiful soft pink rays.

Drakari bowed to Ariana then spoke, "I will speak with your father. I am sure he will understand your situation and will be quite pleased to have gained a granddaughter in the outcome."

Selena hugged her mother and father, then walked through the portal with Drakari. He had promised her that they would visit any time she wanted. He would do anything she wished.

Ariana magically turned back to an older version of herself and bid the SGA team to return anytime the desired. It would be a safe haven for them, she would see it so. The princess then waved farewell and left with her husband to go back to the village.

Ronon told Sheppard and Teyla to go ahead; that he and Dr. Keller would be along in a bit. John agreed but told him that they'd wait at the gate for them just in case. He did not want to come back again for another rescue.

Ronon stood in front of Jennifer as she looked at the jewel in her hand. It was beautiful she thought, but she was sure that she would NEVER use it. Jennifer planned to hide it in her keepsake box that her father had given her years ago and that's where it will stay!

Ronon cupped her face and softly kissed her lips. He gazed into her eyes. He realized how close he'd come to losing everything!

Leaning his forehead against hers he said, "You are a very strong woman, Jennifer Keller! I am a very lucky man!"

She hugged him tight and whispered, "Take me home Ronon!"

He scooped her up into his arms and carried her back to their home; back to the safe haven of their realm – Back to Atlantis.
