Teal'c watched, concerned, as his friend pored over the alien console. Her determination hadn't waivered over the years, but the constant guilt pushing down on her had slowed her movements.

Her face was tired, the glow she once possessed barely present. She was no longer the girl he had steadfastly protected. Turning her blue eyes on his, he saw their years of companionship reflected back at him. But he also saw a desperate plea: Help Me.

He didn't hesitate as he reached out, folding her tight into his arms. A whispered name, "Samantha", cemented his new place; he would help.
