Summary: Sometimes, life just isn’t fair, Colonel.
Note: Written for a random word prompt of: Parity.
It was bad enough to be in the infirmary.
To have to stay there for a three day quarantine was brutal.
And when you added in that Janet was off this weekend, Jack was miserable.
Sure, Dr. Thornton wasn’t bugging him every ten minutes, like Fraiser would have, but that was only because the young, handsome surgeon only had eyes for the patient in the next bed: Carter.
Jack sighed, causing Sam to look up.
Jack raised his eyebrows. “Carter?”
“You alright, sir?”
“Fine,” said Jack. “Just hungry.”
“Me too,” said Sam. “But they should bring dinner soon.”
As if on cue, an orderly brought in two trays.
Both Jack and Sam dug in, despite the “hospital” food. The turkey sandwiches were decent, actually, thanks to the fact that the SGC infirmary patients were fed by the cafeteria staff, like everyone else.
When Sam finished hers, she reached for the cup of pudding on her tray. As she ate it, she didn’t notice that Jack’s meal lacked dessert.
Jack, for his part, did notice. He rolled his eyes. Then he shrugged, seeming to accept the fact that he was in for a long weekend.
So much for parity.
