She had been known like the Air Force's Golden Child, the one everyone deferred to.

The scientist able to work on projects nobody else dared to.

Challenges had made her feel alive.

Being the top of her class.

Driving a motorcycle.

Flying faster than the sound.

Feeling her molecules disassembling and reassembling through the Stargate.

She craved the adrenaline running in her system.

But all she had experienced so far paled in comparison to the intimacy with Jack.

The feel of him moving inside her.

He made her reach pinnacles so high she wasn't sure to still be on Earth.
