Private Eyes and New Love
Disclaimers in Part 1
Author's Note: I'm leaving for vacation early Saturday morning, but I'm going to try and get as much finished as I can for all of you before I leave. Thanks for the reviews!
"O'Neill, this is pointless. If DanielJackson and DoctorFrasier have come here, they want to be alone. What are we watching for?"
Sam glanced at her CO. He seemed focused on the apartment complex. She sighed. "Sir, Teal'cs right. We should just go to your place and watch the movie before it gets too late or Daniel sees..."
She trailed off. Jack's gaze went to her. "Carter?
"What the hell?" she muttered
Jack looked out the window again. Daniel and Janet were sitting on a blanket in the grass and they were... they were making out?!? "Damn! Where's the video camera when you need it?"
"Sir, this is wrong. We shouldn't be watching this!" Sam cried.
Jack grinned. "Aw, come on, Carter. This is way better than Showtime."
Teal'c raised an eyebrow and Sam gasped. Jack turned around again. "What?" he asked. "Holy shit!" Before Teal'c or Sam could say more, he put the car in gear and gunned the engine.
Daniel and Janet began to laugh hysterically as soon as they were gone. "Good thing Mrs. Freemont asked us to walk her dog," he replied, petting the german shepherd.
Janet wiped away the tears of laughter. "I can only imagine what they were thinking."
The couple got up and grabbed their things. After letting the dog do his business, they returned to Daniel's apartment. "So ready for dinner?" he asked.
"I'm starving!" Janet replied. "Plotting certainly give you an appetite." Daniel nodded, kissing her. "Let me reheat this. I hope it's still good."
"If not, we could always skip to dessert," Janet said with a twinkle in her eyes.
Monday morning Daniel whistled happily through the corridors of the SGC. He and Janet had a fantastic weekend. On Saturday, they took Cassie to the zoo. It had been her first trip there so she was really excited.
And finally, on Sunday, they relaxed at Janet's watching movies together. Daniel hadn't felt so happy or needed in a long time. He really felt that it was almost time to ask Janet to marry him.
He was so lost in thought that he didn't see Teal'c coming towards him until he was on the floor. The man helped him up. "Are you all right, DanielJackson."
"I'm fine, Teal'c, thanks."
Teal'c nodded. "DanielJackson, I wish to apologize for our behavior last night. O'Neill was not very clear on his intentions. What you do with creatures is your own business."
Daniel started laughing and Teal'c raised an eyebrow. "I'm sorry, Teal'c," he said. "Janet and I only brought that dog out so you guys would leave us alone. We didn't do anything with him."
"I see. A clever deception, DanielJackson."
"Thank you. Now, have you seen Jack? I wanted to talk to him about stalking people."
"I was heading to the commissary to meet him," Teal'c replied. "Would you like to join me?"
"I think I would."
Sam found Janet in her office dealing with paper work. "Hey, Sam," she said, a smile on her face.
"Wow, you look really calm for someone who hates Monday mornings."
Janet put her pen down and looked up at her friend. "I had a spectacular weekend. Although, I suspect you might know how it started out..."
Sam's face turned red. "Yeah, I guess so. I thought what you and Daniel did with that german shepherd was classic! You should have heard the Colonel!"
"That's good. Maybe it'll teach him to mind his own business," Janet replied. "If you would have asked me who I was seeing, I would have told you."
"Okay, now I'm embarrassed. I had no idea you were dating someone!"
Janet laughed. "You know, for someone as smart as you are, you can certainly be dense!"
"Okay, enough," Sam said, laughing as well. "Want to join Colonel O'Neill and I for lunch?"
"Sounds good. Just let me put these file away and we'll get out of here."
Jack was already seated in the commissary, happily eating the last bowl of blue jello. He looked up when he saw someone enter. It was Teal'c and Daniel.
Oh, crap! I'm going to hear it now, he thought. Easy, O'Neill, you have leverage.
"Hey, Jack," Daniel said. "Have a good weekend?"
Jack nodded, taking a bite of his jello. "It started off a little bumpy, but after that, I had a great time. Teal'c and Carter are great company."
Before Daniel could reply, Sam and Janet arrived and headed over to their table. "What's going on?" Sam wanted to know.
"We're just wondering what Daniel did this weekend," Jack said, grinning evilly.
Daniel crossed his arms. "Why ask me, you were there."
"No way, Daniel. That couldn't have been you! Those no way in hell you'd do something like that."
"Like what?" Daniel asked. He looked upset, but you could tell he was holding in his laughter.
Janet grinned. "Oh, you mean like having more fun with dogs than one should?"
Jack's face went white as a sheet. That had to mean it was true! Even Janet acknowledged it. He gulped down the jello and gasped out, "Yeah, something like that."
"Sir, isn't it obvious?" Sam asked.
"Daniel and Janet only did that to get us to leave them alone."
Teal'c agreed. "Indeed, O'Neill. It was wrong of us to follow them. They would have told us about their relationship when they felt ready to."
"What's there to tell?" Jack questioned. "So the two of you are going out."
"Well, we weren't sure how the fraternization went with a civilian and the chief medical officer. We found out yesterday afternoon when we were summond into the General's office."
Janet continued. "He wasn't mad per se... He just doesn't want us to make out in the middle of the infirmary."
"Thanks for the mental image," Sam replied with a shake of her head.
"It's better than the dog image," Jack muttered, finishing off his jello.
