For what felt like the millionth time, Sam searched her and Cam's cell for any weaknesses it might have, moving methodically from wall to wall. The dim light didn't help at all – she could barely see in it – but still, she went on.
Over in the corner, Cam watched her, knees pulled up to his chest and his hands clasped together loosely. After the first four or five searches had turned up nothing, he had given up and taken up residence there.
Again, once Sam had finished her search, she glanced up at him with a frown and shook her head before moving over and joining him.
"No luck, huh?" Cam threw at her, earning himself an exasperated glare.
"No. But we're not going to get out of here if we don't try."
He rolled his eyes. "Yeah, well, what can I say? We've tried! I say we wait for the others to come save us."
"And if they can't get to us?" Sam pointed out, reasonably. "We can't just sit here and do nothing!" She pulled herself to her feet and began pacing their enclosure: seven steps forward and another seven steps back.
Cam continued to watch her, eyes roaming over her at their own accord. After a few minutes, he couldn't help it. "Best kept secret?" he asked.
Sam paused and turned back to stare at him in disbelief. "What?"
"Best kept secret?" he repeated. "I figure we have a whole lot of time on our hands here and not much to do, so…best kept secret?"
The corner of Sam's mouth twitched up in amusement and she felt some of her irritation fall away. "Like I'm going to tell you that!" she retorted. She smirked at Cam's disappointed look and an idea suddenly hit her that she knew was truly wrong and stupid and did she mention wrong!?, but hey…she was bored!
"I may not be willing to tell you that, but I'm sure we can find something else to do," she said suggestively.
