It's not that cold, not by the standard of some of the places she's been in the last decade or so of her life, but then again, she's not used to braving the weather in heels and an evening dress.
Why This Must Be Read:
Sam is now assigned as the captain of the Hammond and is Earth-side for a shindig involving politicians, younger colleagues, and... Jack O'Neill. She's at a point where she's looking around and thinking she's now the 'village elder' -- a slightly depressing thought.
Jack walks her back to her hotel and and a mutual admission of feelings ensues.
It's a lovely first-time fic, where Jack and Sam finally get together.
MrsPollifax is generally better knows for some of her other fic, but this is a lovely fic all on its own. Well worth reading, especially for any Jack/Sam fans.
She's been busy; her life has a structure built by duty rosters and protocol, made challenging by the occasional crisis or puzzle to solve. And somewhere in the back of her mind she knew it, but she hadn't felt till right now exactly how much she'd missed him.
Or maybe she's just getting a bit maudlin as the years go by.
She turns away, deliberately putting the mood aside, and spots Paul Davis heading her way.
"I'm surprised you didn't find a way to get out of this," he says.
She raises her eyebrows. "Was that an option?"
He shrugs. "Not for us Washington hacks. But Caldwell sent his XO, and Ellis escaped with his entire crew - had to chase down some anomalous bit of noise out near PGY-934, apparently. And I don't know about anyone else, but General Landry's sure as hell not here."
Sam laughs. "I think we're all better off for that."
