It’s funny, really.

I mean, you’re way better at this than I am, yet here I am holding your guts in after tracking your ass halfway across a desert wasteland.

I don’t even want to think about how you landed in this mess, so instead I snort while I reposition my hands on your wound. I’m sure that seems crazy, but if I don’t laugh, I might cry, and I don’t have the time or energy for that.

I laugh because I once let it slip that I barely passed my tracking exercises back in training, and you’ve given me grief about that ever since.

Oh, if you could see me now. The irony is just too much. I’m sure if you were conscious, you’d agree with me. Or at least give me the eyebrow.

But you’re not, and none of that matters.

All that matters is that you’ll live.

That’s all I care about.

Well, that and the fact that this’ll shut you up for good.

See, you once said I couldn’t track an elephant.

Wrong.

Apparently, I can follow a trail just fine, Teal’c.

I found you, didn’t I?

And like that elephant, I won’t soon forget that.

Thank you! I struggled with this, in that I had about five of these little guys all trying to be the one posted, but in the end I just had to go with my original idea (albeit a slightly less dark version of it). Thanks for reading and for the encouragement. More to come, I hope!
