Elizabeth leaned forward from the seat behind the pilot's, her arms crossed around her middle. "Same old Rodney."
"In some ways," Teyla said. Of course Elizabeth was not aware of the silent conversation. She knew nothing of Rodney's experiences with the Wraith, or of how they had left him with the residual Wraith telepathy that allowed him to speak privately with her.
"What's the date?"
Teyla looked around.
"The date," Elizabeth said firmly. "What day is it?"
"According to the reckoning of your people, today is February 24, 2010," Teyla replied.
Elizabeth sat back in her seat, nodding slowly. "February 24, 2010. The last things I remember were in June, 2007. Not quite three years."
"Yes," Teyla said. "That was when we lost you to the Asurans. You truly do not remember anything since then?"
"Not until a few weeks ago," Elizabeth said. "When I was on Mazatla." Her frown deepened. "I have no idea what happened between."
"A great many things," Teyla said ruefully. There were so many things Elizabeth had missed. The war between the Wraith and the Asurans. Atlantis' return to Earth. The war against Queen Death. She did not even know that Torren existed. "I do not know where to begin."
