"Previously, in Hanging By A Thread…"

On his hands and knees Jack peered into the hole and the chamber beneath, which was lit by several lanterns. "Daniel?"

"Jack!" Daniel's voice echoed up, sounding muffled. "You are not going to believe this!"

"What is it?"

Daniel suddenly appeared… "There's another chamber! Another burial chamber with just one coffin in it… the walls are covered from floor to ceiling in writing and pictures, and the coffin– I think there's two people in it! Not one!"


"Daryas and Shaii." Daniel said quietly, his eyes moving across them… "It goes on to describe their reign together, how under their wisdom and guidance the people flourished, and how their love became legendary. They had– three children. Ashad, their eldest son, Shahnam Saqi, their daughter, and Reias, the youngest son." With a nod he closed his journal and set it in his lap, then looked up.

"I know what happened." Daniel whispered. "I know why they left… There was a drought, or a famine, as they called it. They waited it out the first year, hoping that rain would come. But it didn't."

"Daniel," Jack said. "Are you saying you can figure out where they went?"
Daniel didn't look at him. "I already have."
Sam's eyes grew large. She shifted her weight; one could see her mind racing. "You found the Gate address?"
Without a word, Daniel bent down and picked up a stone lying next to the wall. It was the stone that had been put in backwards, in the wall of the ruins. On the side that had been hidden were seven symbols, clearly painted in black.

And now… Back to "A Silken Thread"
