Summary: "Here, hold this while I pee."
Author's Notes: Part of the LJ
I'm taking forever with this, I know. The only reason
I finished this one is because sage_theory
got me out of my funk and started me on another track than the one
I'd gotten stuck on.
Many many thanks for that. *smooooooooch*
500 words exactly. Hope you enjoy :)
"Here, hold this while I pee."
Daniel grabbed it. "Wow. It's kinda…squishy."
"Daniel!" Jack glared. “Will you be careful? If you break
Daniel snorted. “I don’t think you *can* break it, Jack.”
Jack continued to glare and Daniel eased his hold a bit, rolling
his eyes. “Alright, already. Geez, sensitive.”
“Hey, you’re not the one who has to explain it to Carter if it’s
Jealousy surging through him at the mention of her name, Daniel kicked
a bit at the ground, momentarily forgetting that their legs and arms
were tied together and almost managed to tip them both over.
Jack straightened them both up, using his free hand to grab a hold
of Daniel’s shirt.
“Sorry,” Daniel said breathlessly.
“God damn sicko goa’ulds,” Jack grumbled. “What’s wrong with the
old fashioned way of tying people up?”
“It’s not as funny.” He wasn’t going to say it. He wasn’t. Wasn’t.
“I didn’t think you were into ropes.”
Damn. Almost didn’t.
But, instead of sounding amused, his voice sounded husky and a bit
Jack looked at Daniel in surprise and for a moment they just stared
at each other. Then Jack’s eyes turned heated and Daniel started breathing
a bit heavier. He twisted; fought to lean towards Jack; only three
inches to his mouth, two, o-.
A branch snapped and they spun around. Well, more like carefully
turned, as they both tried to avoid crashing to the ground.
Sam appeared, followed closely by Teal'c, both looking dirty and
tired. "Colonel, thank god, we thought-" She caught sight
of Daniel's hand and what he was holding. Her mouth opened. "Wow."
Teal'c raised his eyebrows. "I am impressed, O'Neill."
Jack shrugged modestly. "What can I say. Some things just come
Sam looked amused. "Like stealing, sir?"
"Hey, are you complaining?"
She raised her hands. "Wouldn't dream of it." Her expression
turned dreamy. "I've been wanting one of those ever since...since..."
"Hadante," Daniel supplied.
Sam smiled happily. "Right."
She must really be happy, Daniel thought, for her to be able to forget
the name of that place. She was a menace at Pairs.
Teal’c pulled out his military issue knife and cut through the rope
that tied Daniel and Jack together. Daniel couldn’t help but feel
a pang of loss as Jack rubbed his now free wrist in relief. "Next
time get your own electric plant thingy, Carter."
She smiled at him and started walking back towards the gate. “Yes,
“So,” Jack said quietly as he came up to Daniel’s side, Sam taking
point and Teal’c watching their sixes. “What was that thing earlier?”
“When I mentioned Carter’s name, you got all funny.”
“Just…” Daniel felt silly. “Would you get *me* an electrical plant
if I asked for it?” No wonder he felt silly. He was silly.
“Daniel,” Jack whispered hotly in his ear, “I’d even get you ropes.”
With that, he increased his pace and walked up to Sam.
Daniel thanked god that BDUs were roomy.
