"What's wrong with him, I wonder?" Vala asked.
She, Daniel and Cameron were sitting in the middle of the commissary,
licking their wounds from their latest encounter of the Orii Priors
over dessert. Cameron and Vala had gone for the flavor of the day
Jell-O, while Daniel found himself in front of a large slice of
apple pie. Both men looked up to see who the "him" was
that Vala was speaking of, finding her gazing upon Teal'c who was
near the front of the dinner line-up.
Daniel looked away and dug into his pie, "I don't know what
you're talking about."
Vala put her spoon down to rest her head on her left hand while
she continued to stare at Teal'c, finding herself mesmerized by
the sheer amount of food he was helping himself to. She idly wondered
if the Jaffa's fat intake went straight to his biceps since his
stomach was once gutted to incubate a symbiote. There probably wasn't
room left to store any fat there, and it would certainly explain
a lot about his build. Vala couldn't help but notice the way he
forcefully threw all of the different offerings onto his tray. "I
don't know," she said, as she continued to watch. "He
looks- frustrated. Hmm, sexually frustrated perhaps," she stated,
eliciting a choked cough from Cameron as he swallowed a spoon full
of Jell-O down the wrong pipe. "I thought he had a girlfriend."
Cameron wheezed out, "I really didn't need that picture, thank
"Well, I didn't tell you to visualize anything now, did I?"
Vala asked indignantly.
"Why do you think he had a girlfriend?" Daniel
asked, before he could remind himself that it was best not to encourage
She leaned over towards Daniel, whispering in a conspiratorial
manner, though Cameron was able to hear every word. "I've heard
a lot of rumors over the years regarding the infamous S.G.1. You
guys never went for subtle did you?"
Cameron wondered if Daniel had developed a special glare just for
her, "Your point being?"
"Well, I know that you've fought the good fight together for
a long time now. So you must know what his different moods look
like." Vala said, as she picked her spoon back up for another
slurp of gelatin. Pointing towards Teal'c with an empty spoon, she
asked, "Tell me that doesn’t look like a man who's suffering
from not getting any horizontal recreation."
Daniel reached out and slowly pushed her spoon down with his fork
while he looked around to see if anyone was listening in to their
conversation. He doubted Teal'c would appreciate anyone taking special
notice of his "little" problem. "Look," Daniel
said once he was sure no one was paying attention to them, "Teal'c,
has a very healthy- sexual appetite. He's usually able to- uh, have
his fill when the need arises, but with current Jaffa politics,
he and Ishta haven't been very amicable to each other."
"Nicely put." Vala said with a small appreciative smile.
"None of the reports I've read made any indication of his
sexual prowess." Cameron couldn't help but add to their conversation.
Daniel nodded, "I'd imagine they wouldn't."
"Now your sexual antics on the other hand-" Cameron continued.
"What?!" Daniel exclaimed, finding himself looking around
the commissary again. Satisfied that he hadn't drawn any extra attention,
he whispered a little more quietly, "And what- exactly, would
you be referring to?"
Cameron decided to explain everything with his filthiest smile.
"Daniel, you dog! I thought we had something special."
Vala tried to pout, though her 100 watt smile got in the way.
"Nope. Nothing special between you and-"
All three looked up to see Teal'c with a very heavy tray full of
food in hand, from meat-loaf surprise to cottage cheese.
"Uhm, yes Teal'c?" His cheeks flushed a little as he
thought of the phenomenal distance of which Teal'c could hear.
"I wish to speak with you."
"Sure!" He exclaimed, perhaps just a little too brightly.
"O- kay." Daniel got up as Teal'c dropped his tray onto
the table in front of Vala and Cameron. Vala started to get up as
well, only for Cameron to pull her back into her seat. Daniel glanced
back at Cameron gratefully before he and Teal'c left the commissary,
the double doors swinging wildly after them.
"I wager that when they come back, Daniel's shirt will be
missing a button." Vala said while grinning at the still swinging
"Really?" Cameron asked, around his last spoon of Jell-O.
"I bet that they won't be coming back until breakfast."
