A few days after the picnic, Caitlin found herself the new owner of a pair of white feather wings. She had thought she wouldn't get any, but Kade said it made sense. After all, she had the ATA gene, which no other Sangui had. He also said her transformation was now complete. She was no longer human and a full Sangui. Caitlin didn't know how she felt about that, but kept her feelings to herself. She knew Carson, Rodney and Kade couldn't stop putting their lives on hold for her.
However, keeping such things to yourself was hard. Caitlin needed to talk to someone about what she was feeling. It wasn't her wings that were bothering her. What was truly getting to her was all the sacrifices Carson was making for her. They could no longer go to Earth, which meant he could never see his mum and family again. She hardly thought it was fair, but didn't know what do to about it. She loved Carson so much that it hurt to see him giving up so much for her.
After finishing a few projects for the day, Caitlin found herself wandering around the city. As she walked by medical, she peeked in and saw Carson was busy with a patient. She didn't want to bother him so she continued on her way. She went up to the control room, and smiled at Chuck when he looked up at her. "How are you?" she asked.
"Good," Chuck said with a grin.
Caitlin was about t say something else but stopped when she saw Sam was in her office. They really hadn't talked a lot since the explosion, and Sam was always good with her advice so Caitlin found herself wandering into Sam's office. "Hey," she said as she sat down on the couch. "Got a few moments? I need some advice on something."
