Time of the Enterprises

The guy resembles a young Christopher--


...7:58 PM...

"I am here to pick up Daniel Jackson." Teal'c said.

"Well, he is a suspect for breaking in and entering, and may I add: killing someone." Esposito said.

"Daniel Jackson is not capable of killing another man." Teal'c said.

"That is what the parents say," Esposito said. "And it turns out they are wrong."

"I am not wrong about this man, Detective." Teal'c said.

"What makes you say that?" Esposito asked.

"I have known this man since I rescued him from the Goa'uld with Carter and O'Neill." Teal'c said.

"Hah, next you are going to say is that you are still searching for away to find his wife." Esposito said.

"Yes, we are." Teal'c said.

Esposito snickered.

"Damn, it is like I can read your mind." Esposito said.

"That is technically impossible as the one procedure I am aware of is harmful to the human mind." Teal'c said.

Esposito rubs his face then looked at Teal'c.

"Okay, enough with the act," Esposito said. "What is your name?"

"Teal'c." Teal'c said.

"Tealic?" Esposito said, at first startled.

"T-e-a-l apostophy c." Teal'c said.

"Teal'c," Esposito said, leaning back into his chair. "You must be obsessed with Stargate. It is a old show and outdated."

"I am not obsessed with the Stargate." Teal'c said, clearly offended.

Esposito sighed.

"Are you a friend of Richard Castle?" Esposito asked.

Teal'c looked at Esposito strangely.

"I am aware that he passed away unexpectedly last year." Teal'c said.

"No, he is quite alive." Esposito said.

"Interesting," Teal'c said. "I am in a reality where Richard Castle lives and I do not."

"Uh huh," Esposito said, dialing a number on the nearby dark desk phone. "Hold up." Teal'c raised a brow. Esposito tapped his pen on the desk lightly waiting for Castle to answer with the phone to his ear. He leaned forward a minute later putting his hand on the counter. "Yo Castle!" He looked toward Teal'c's direction. "I have a guy who resembles a young Christopher Judge in front of my desk asking about a suspect named Daniel Jackson." He had a short laugh. "Yeah, he has the emblem AND the spear."

Esposito's brightened mood turned into a questionable mood.

"You want me to what?" Esposito asked. "Uh, no way Castle. Goa'uld do not exist."

Teal'c leaned the spear against the table then stood up.

"Do you need proof that I am real?" Teal'c asked.

Esposito looked up toward Teal'c holding the phone against his ear then he lowered the phone.

"Yeah, I do." Esposito said.

Teal'c zipped down his jacket and then pulled up his white shirt. There is a pouch in the shape of an 'X' placed where his belly button should be. Esposito froze as his jaw dropped witnessing a white worm like creature poke its head making a squealing kind of sound. Esposito's eyes had enlarged.

"This is my second Goa'uld," Teal'c said. "My son has my first."

Esposito stared at the Goa'uld in shock half wanting to shoot it out.

Like O'Neill, Esposito was disgusted at first by the worm.

"Thanks for reminding me," Esposito forced himself to say. "I forgot."

The Goa'uld slipped back into Teal'cs body. Teal'c pulled down his shirt then zipped up his jacket. Teal'c believed that he had proved his existence to Esposito. Esposito lifted the phone back up to his ear and then said, "Castle, what the hell is going on?" He seemed more eager to hear the story then get informed that there is a government conspiracy with the government and alien beings.

Esposito cocked a brow.

"What do you mean the box is not of this century?" Esposito asked. He looked toward Teal'c lowering the phone. "Tell me exactly how you arrived to our world and rather we should expect any Goa'uld army any time soon."

"Since I do not exist in this world; there is no threat." Teal'c said.

"But you are here." Esposito said.

"I arrived through a reality changing room," Teal'c said. "It has a Dial Reality Device. I dialed the same address Daniel Jackson dialed and arrived here . . . It was a random dial. I would like to see Daniel Jackson and speak with him."

Esposito lifted the phone to his ear.

"So what about the box?" Esposito asked.

Esposito listened intently then nodded with 'uh huh, I see.' and 'uh huh'.

"You go do that, Castle." Esposito said.

Esposito lowered the phone then put it down on the receiver.

"May I now see Daniel Jackson?" Teal'c asked.

"Why you are lucky that this box indicates you are right," Esposito said. "It is something not a man has ever seen in real life. Not even Castle. Now if you contact a Klingon and that results in the death of my friend then we will share a lot of words. I will also personally hunt you down. Am I clear?"

"I am only interested in seeing Daniel Jackson,Detective." Teal'c said.

Esposito narrowed his eyes toward Teal'c.

"Get interested in your livelihood,Teal'c." Esposito said.

"I agree to your conditions,Detective." Teal'c said.
