After The Line Of Duty

Samantha Carter lay on her side, staring into space. Jack OíNeill entered with a big smile, although he wasnít smiling inside. It had been three days since Jolinar had died, nearly taking Sam along with her. Jack sat next to her. "Hey there Captain, how you feeling today?" He asked, as he took her hand. "Not so good then hey Sam?" He sighed. He had been visiting her every day, but she hadnít said a word to anyone. He couldnít imagine how she felt. Poor kid. Jack thought. I canít begin to imagine what it was like.

"Danny said heíd stop by later, with TealíC, thatíll be nice, wonít it?" Sam didnít even look up at him. She just lay there, staring at the dull grey walls. "Are the walls really that interesting Carter?" Jack joked. He stayed with her for hours, and she still didnít say anything or look at him. She just lay there. Jack thought he was going to cry. It killed him to see her like this. "Cassie might stop by. You know, she doesnít blame you, she understands. Sheís still a little scared, but she doesnít hate you."

Another few days passed, and Janet decided that she was healthy enough to be let out of the infirmary, but she wasnít quite sure if Sam was okay inside. She hadnít spoken to anyone, or even moved, hardly. She hadnít eaten hardly anything. Janet felt that it was time for Sam to go home though, she was pretty sure that Sam wouldnít want to stay in the infirmary.

"Sir." Janet knocked on Hammondís door.

"Come in." Hammond replied. Janet entered the office, and closed the door.

"Sorry sir, I didnít know you were talking to Colonel OíNeill."

"Thatís fine Doctor." Both men told her, at the same time.

"Sirs, Captain Carter is okay to go home now, as herÖletís call themÖinjuries have healed."

"What about inside? She hasnít spoken to us in over a week! Sheís not eating much at all, and she spends most of the day staring in to space." OíNeill asked, angrily. "Iím sorry Jan, Iím not angry with you, itís just that I hate seeing her like that."

"I know. I think we should get someone to stay with her for a while."

"Jack?" Hammond asked him, in a tone that implied that he wanted him to take her.

"I think you read my mind sir. Iíll take her." Jack agreed. Janet returned to the infirmary, and

persuaded Sam to go and get dressed. Jack stopped by with her bag that he had got from her locker, and knocked on the door of Janetís office. "Hey Doc."

"Colonel. Sheís just changing."

"Okay. I can wait." Sam entered the room. Her face was pale, and showed her unhappiness.

"Ready? Letís go then." Jack walked out, with Sam behind him, still not saying a word. They passed by many soldiers, and scientists that asked Sam how she was, Jack just told them she wasnít feeling too good, and that they were going back to her house.

"Here we are." Jack announced as he pulled up Samís drive. He turned the engine off, and stepped out. He closed the door, and grabbed Samís bag out of the back. He found a key under the plant pot, where she had showed him at Christmas. Jack unlocked the front door, and Sam entered. Jack headed for the bedroom to put the bag down. He dumped it on her bed, and headed for the lounge. "Iíll make some coffee."


"Good morning campers!" OíNeill greeted his team merrily. "Are we all ready for SG-1ís first team mission in over a month?"

"Yes sir." Sam replied quietly.

"Yep." Danny said.

"I am. I am glad you are here Captain Carter, we have all missed you." TealíC told Sam. She smiled.

"Thanks TealíC. Iím sorry I was rather off with you all for the last few weeks, but, itís hard to explain how it felt." Sam tried to explain.

"Thatís okay."

"It helped that all of you guys were here for me. When Jolinar was alive in me, I felt like I had company, but when sheÖdied I felt so alone." Jack put a hand on her shoulder.

"But weíre always here for you Sam." Jack told her. They all proceeded to the Gate room, and walked up the ramp. The seventh chevron activated, and SG-1 stepped through the Stargate, wondering what lay aheadÖ
