Samantha Carter called as she entered his lab.
“Hey, I thought you'd
have gone home by now,” He smiled, looking up from his book.
“Oh I'm on my way out. You know me, never leave on time!” She replied,
looking down at her leather jacket, Guns N Roses tour shirt and jeans.
“Right. What is Guns N Roses?” Jonas asked, puzzled.
“It's a band, a rock band. You know, music. I'll play them to you some
time,” She made a mental note to introduce him to the whole Rock Genre
before someone else got to him. Teal'C was rather fond of Opera for some
reason, not that she minded. And the Colonel was in to classical and rock,
a weird mix. But Daniel had been a different story.
“Cool,” He nodded. “You look nice by the way. It's weird seeing you in
“Yeah, the Colonel found it very hard to believe I had any, or a life
outside this place at first. Of course at that point I didn't,” She
“Clothes?” He frowned.
“I find that hard to believe,” He laughed.
“Thanks for the compliments anyway,” She blushed - she didn't take
compliments well. “We are positive there are no more creatures.”
“Good! So, I guess I'll see you tomorrow?” Jonas replied, putting his
book back on the shelf, and pausing for a moment, deciding which to read
“Daniel was fond of this one, I think you'd find it fascinating,” Sam
told him, picking out a large black book. “But I was wondering if you'd
like to join us tonight. Teal'C and I always spend the first Thursday of
every month together, provided we're on Earth. We have a drink, order a
pizza and watch a couple of movies at my house. It gets him off of the
base, and gives us some time alone. It's nice.”
“Sounds it. But it also sounds like a tradition. I don't want to
impose,” he replied.
“Please, Jonas, we'd love it if you joined us. Teal'C is taking the
guest bedroom as the sofa bed is too small for him, but you're welcome to
it,” she still felt bad for not believing him about the 'bugs,' even
though she had apologised. Besides, he was a friend now, a good friend,
and she did want to spend some time with him outside of work.
“In that case,” He beamed, “I'd love to. I love my work, my job here.
But I also love to get away from it, out of the mountain, you know?” He
paused, “Of course you don't.”
“Ha ha. Elevator, ten minutes,” She took the book out of his hand and
put it down on the desk. “This will still be here tomorrow unless there is
some kind of obsessive compulsive cleaning fairy like the Colonel
“Move,” she ordered in her best Major voice.
“Ma'am, yes ma'am,” He laughed, saluting like he'd seen officers doing.
