Warnings: AU. Slight spoilers.

Pairings: Sam/Daniel (like I write anything else), hints at Daniel/Vala and Cam/Vala

Author's Note: I am not a D/V fan so if it's mentioned its most likely in a rather negative light.

Time line: Season 10

Feedback: Nice but no big. I do not own Stargate SG1 or any of the characters contained therein.

QUESTIONS LEAD TO ANSWERS

Sam stood in the doorway of Daniel's office. She watched him quietly he did not acknowledge her presence, she doubted that he even knew whether she was there or not.

"Daniel, are you in love with Vala?" asked Sam breaching the silence. Daniel spit out his coffee in surprise and started choking. Sam was right he hadn't noticed her, but she hadn't intended to make him choke. "I'm sorry." She rubbed his back until his coughing subsided and his breathing returned to normal.

"No. No, I'm not," answered Daniel his voice raspy from choking. "Why do you think that?"

"It seems like you are. You went on a date with her and you're always together," offered Sam.

"It wasn't a date," grumbled Daniel. "It was just a thank you because she's doing her best to behave and contribute."

"She told the entire base that it was a date. I overheard Harriman and Siler talking about it," shugged Sam.

"I'm not in love with Vala. As for spending time together, it's more her following me around than anything else," stated Daniel.

"Are you together?" asked Sam. Just because Daniel wasn't in love with Vala didn't mean they weren't involved.

"No!" exclaimed Daniel vehemently. "Did she say we were together?" He really hoped Vala hadn't said they were involved, because they weren't and he knew the never would be.

"I accidently eavesdropped on some of the nurses saying that they were surprised that you and Vala were involved," said Sam deadpan.

"I'm not in love with Vala. I'm not involved with Vala either. At best we're friends and nothing else," answered Daniel firmly.

"Good," said Sam. She then leaned forward and kissed Daniel soundly on the lips. He at first sat there stunned, but before long was responding. "I'm in love with you," murmured Sam mere millimeters from his lips.

"God, Sam," whispered Daniel before he captured her lips. "You can't believe how long I've wanted to hear you say that."

"I think I can. You don't know how long I've wanted to tell you that," said Sam when the kiss broke. She giggled and then proceeded to kiss Daniel again.

Out in the hallway Cameron was walking by Daniel's office and spied Sam and Daniel kissing, "Now that's what I'm talking about!" Cameron grinned and continued past Daniel's office. He was hoping he'd find Vala before she interrupted the two scientists. If she knew that Daniel was off the table than maybe he'd have a chance with the feisty raven-haired alien. Cameron felt that it was going to be a good day.
