That was all it took.
In a split second, that tiny piece of lead forever altered my life.
I don't cry.
I don't even shake.
I simply let the scalding water pound over my battered body as I scrub the blood from my hands, my face. The face a gentle hand touched but for a moment before sliding away, leaving a crimson stain.
The water has flown clear for interminable minutes before I shut it off. Silence is shattered by the screaming of the klaxons, calling me back to my suddenly empty life. A call I must answer.
"SG-1 to the briefing room."
With a determined breath, I lock my armor back in place and turn to go, to continue the mission laid before me years ago.
As always, there's no time to grieve; we're needed now. The Goa'uld are still plotting and we have to keep standing in their way.
Far too soon I find myself back in the 'Gateroom, pack bearing down on my shoulders and weapon cold against my flesh.
Shimmering blue light calls.
And I answer.
