What Jack Did During the Time Loop
Summary: It wasn't all just pottery, golf, and smooching Sam Carter in the control room. Implied Jack/Sam.
Disclaimer: yeah no i don't own anything
With the help of Teal'c, Jack managed to get a bunch of oil paints and paint brushes. They seated themselves cross legged in the gate room and they started to paint. Mind you, they weren't artists, but it was a good way to spend one of the many six hour loops. They just painted anything that came to mind, while onlookers stared at them with an incredulous expression on their faces. Their expressions probably wouldn't be any more different if Teal'c turned his back on SGC and went on a killing spree.
"Will we not get caught?" Teal'c asked, smearing purple on the metal walls.
"We're already caught. Plus, the loop's almost over. Look at this masterpiece! It's a shame it won't be here in the next loops."
Teal'c glanced at Jack's "masterpiece". It was a fine attempt at drawing landscape: a mountainside with a waterfall. The Jaffa noticed something off to the side that he wanted to ask about.
"O'Neill," he said. "What is the meaning of 'J t S'?"
Jack frowned and scanned his painting. In the sky a few inches near a badly drawn sun, there was a small drawing of a heart with the word 'J plus S' inside it.
"Teal'c, that 't' is actually a plus sign. So… J plus S."
"What is the meaning of J and S?"
This was going to be awkward.
"Well, J and S stand for a name, like the first letter of someone's name."
"Is it referring to you and Major Carter?"
Damn it, Teal'c. Was it that obvious? God, he felt like a teenager all over again. And the worst part was, he didn't even know he drew it in the first place!
"Uh, yeah," Jack admitted.
His stomach churned as he heard that familiar voice behind him. Turning around, he saw Sam, Daniel, and General Hammond behind him. Daniel had his eyebrows raised and his jaw dropped, General Hammond was frowning, Teal'c... well, he was being Teal'c, but Sam was biting her lips, cheeks reddened. Underneath all that embarrassment, she looked like she was trying to repress a smile. She didn't look at Jack, but more at his little "J+S" drawing.
"Do you like it?" Jack asked to Sam, catching her completely off guard.
"Um…" she stuttered, cheeks reddening even more. "I, ah…"
"Care to explain yourself?" Hammond asked. Jack could hear the anger slowly bubbling. Thank god they have a few minutes left. The General looked like he was about to explode.
Jack glanced at his watch. Ten more seconds.
"Nope," he said. He waved his hand at them. He winked at Sam, catching her off guard once again. "Bye."
