…Under the Sea…
The cold, underground cave seemed like a tomb as the lifeless body rested on the wet, rocky ground.
Daniel coughed up water as he instantly lifted into a seated position. He gasped for breath and looked around at his surroundings. He looked down at himself and realized he was soaking wet.
"I remember this," Daniel said as he remembered the time his grandfather had rescued him from the river.
He shook out of his thoughts as he noticed that he was in a cave.
He rose to his feet and spoke once more, "Jack? Sam? Teal'c?"
He frowned as he realized that he was alone in the cave. He noticed a mirror of some sort revealed that he was underwater. Removing his desert BDU jacket, Daniel squeezed the water out of it as much as he could, the material did not give very much. The black t-shirt clung to his pecs and abs like a second skin.
Daniel turned as he felt another presence in the room with him.
A greenish-gray sea creature stood nearly in his space, uncomfortably close.
Daniel backed up a step. "Daniel Jackson," he pointed to himself as he tried to communicate. "You are?" he indicated the thing, whatever it was.
The creature remained silent.
"The creature of the week," he smirked at his own joke. "Where are the people I came here with?" he asked but knew he was not going to get a response at this point.
The sea creature growled and pointed to a wall.
Looking over, Daniel noticed carvings in the stone. He moved over to investigate and ran a calloused hand over the markings. He looked at the creature with a questioning light in his blue eyes.
The creature growled at him and pointed at the wall.
"It's a- um… very recent carving…" Daniel said as he looked over at the sea creature once more. "Did you carve this?" he asked in curiosity as he remembered that the creature had written in the sand earlier.
The sea creature gave a huffing growl that Daniel took as an affirmative.
Daniel shrugged and looked back at the wall, "Its cuneiform, one of the first forms of writing from my planet…" he trailed off in awe.
The creature growled once more.
"Alright, already," Daniel said with a frown as he looked back at the wall. "Akkadian… let me see…" he looked at the words and sounded them out carefully, 'Reveal fate Omorca'." He looked at the monster, "You're Omorca?"
The creature got in Daniel's face and growled loudly and long revealing ugly, pointy, fierce teeth and smelly, fish breath.
Daniel reflexively squinted his eyes and waved a hand under his nose as he looked at the creature, "I don't know what you want me to do, Buddy, but you sure need a breath mint."
The sea creature roared and backhanded Daniel across the face. He flew into the wall twenty feet away and crashed to the ground.
"You beating the crap out of me is not going to make me understand you anymore than I do now!" Daniel protested as the monster loomed above him.
