Buffy screamed as she held the hand of her sister slayer. “When this is over I’m killing him for doing this to me Faith.” Buffy told her before another contraction hit her.
“I’m definitely sure I’m never going to have kids now B.” Faith replied.
“A wise” Buffy grinds her teeth together as another contraction hit her “Choice.” It had better be time to push Carson or I’m going to put you in my slay category.
“Buffy don’t threaten the doctor who has the nice drugs.” John told her standing on the other side of the bed a bit out of the distance of Buffy’s arms so she wouldn’t crush his hand or try to kill him for knocking her up and putting her through labor.
“Can I have another shot?” Buffy asked pouting at Carson.
“You just had one 40 minutes ago.” Carson told her.
“She’s a slayer, we burn up drugs pretty fast.” Faith pointed out and Buffy shot her a grateful look before grinding her teeth again in order not to scream out loud as another contraction hit her.
Carson sighed and gave her another shot before looking back to see how far along Buffy was. They were at this for 4 hours already. And she was now finally far enough dilated to begin pushing.

Pegasus Galaxy, Atlantis, hallway,
John came out holding a small bundle wrapped in a pink blanket close him. His face seemed to be glowing with love and adoration for the small bundle in his arms.
John looked at the small group gather in the hallway, there was Buffy’s old friends which had reconnected with her, Willow, Giles, Xander and Andrew. There was Buffy’s father, Jack with his wife Sam O’Neill. There was Dr. Weir, Dr. McKay, Teyla, Stackhouse, Ford, Illyria, Daniel Jackson and Teal’C.
John looked down at the bundle again and grinned widely before saying “Hey General, you want to hold your granddaughter Callista Joyce Sheppard?” John asked. Callista was his grandmothers name and Joyce had been Buffy’s mother. They had already decided to call her Cali for short.
Jack nodded eagerly and John carefully handed him his daughter. Jack expertly held the little baby. “That’s your grandfather Cali. You better remember him because I have a feeling he’s going to be spoiling you rotten.” Buffy ‘s tired voice said from the doorway.
John looked at her disapprovingly “You shouldn’t be out of bed.”
“You know I’m not comfortable in hospitals. I want to sleep in my own bed.” Buffy told him.
“I swear she’s going to be the death of me, where did she….there you are Buffy. Back to bed.” Carson said coming out of the infirmary into the hallway.
“I’m fine. I just need some rest.” Buffy told him “Which I can do in my own bed.” Buffy hastily added.
“Maj- Colonel, a little help.” Carson asked Sheppard who had been promoted to Colonel shortly after the battle with the Wraith.
Sheppard looked at Buffy who pointed her finger at him “Don’t you dare John.”
John merely grinned and walked closer to her and scooped her up in his arms. “No I don’t want to go back there. John, no. Please?” Buffy begged as he took her back into the infirmary.
Carson watched and shook his head he looked at Jack and said “I want that Cali back too.”
Jack looked at the doctor to the precious little girl in his arms. “5 more minutes?” he asked.
“You’re as bad as your daughter. You can have 10.” Carson told him.
Jack grinned and looked at the little baby who looked at him with wonder. She reached her tiny arm out to reach his face but couldn’t reach.
“Can I hold her?” Willow asked.
“After me, I am her Godmother.” Illyria stated holding her arms out expectantly.
Jack looked between the two woman and handed her to Willow, “you can go next.” Jack told Illyria.
Just as Willow held the baby it began to cry and Willow panicked and quickly handed her to Illyria. “Stop crying infant.” Illyria ordered and amazingly the baby actually stopped for a few seconds anyways. As it started crying again Illyria hurriedly passed the baby on to Giles.
