Jack entered the large team tent and stepped towards Makepeace who was sitting at a metal table in the corner, staring at the laptop screen with a morose face. Jack whistled softly, leaning casually against the edge of the desk, and dropped a video tape on the table when Makepeace shot him a questioning look.

“Oh, my God,“ the colonel groaned.

“Teal’c’s making really headway with the recordings,“ Jack grinned.

“That temple didn’t look that big from the outside,“ Makepeace replied, placing a small tower of tapes he hadn’t watched yet, on the new one.

Jack sighed. “Yeah, well, at least the weather’s great.“

Makepeace glanced at him, murder in his eyes.

“Oh sorry, I forgot for a minute that you can’t enjoy the sun on your face,“ Jack said.

Makepeace dropped the legal pad he was holding on the keyboard. “What am I really doing here, O’Neill?“

“Working.“

“No. What am I doing here? I’m a soldier, a marine. Why did Hammond want me to do this? You of all people should know how awful this job is ...“ Makepeace looked at Jack with a hopeful expression.

Jack put on a thoughtful face. “I like this job.“

“Your idea of fun is really strange.“

“And your idea of boosting morale is, too,“ Jack answered.

Makepeace was confused. “I don’t get it, O’Neill.“

“What a shame,“ Jack said. Then he settled for an explanation. “You’re messing with one of my people, Makepeace. I can’t stand that.“

“Jackson?“ Makepeace asked.

“I’m surprised. You’re admitting it.“

“O’Neill, you’re a soldier, just like me. Guys like Jackson – even Carter – they’re not like us. They’re geeks … you understand that, right? You’re a soldier, after all.“

“Soldier’s not the equivalent to ignoramus, Makepeace. A lot of soldiers at the SGC are having civilians under their command. Not one of them is complaining. You don’t even have a civilian in your team, so you’re harassing mine. Carter’s able to break your neck faster than you can say ‘wormhole’, because she’s not only a scientist, she’s a soldier, too, and you know that. Don’t you dare to underestimate her, because she’ll notice. And when she does, you’re in big trouble, Makepeace, believe me, I know – my first conversation with her proved that to me. And if there’s anyone in the SGC who has the right to curse and harass Daniel, it’s me, you understand? I don’t do it – most of the time – because I respect him and his work. Get this, Makepeace, Daniel’s one of the most brilliant people on Earth. He’s already solving the universe’s mysteries while you’re taking your morning shower. And if I hear one more time – just once – that you’re messing with him, I’ll-“

“Jack?“

The colonel turned around, pasting on a smile for Daniel. “What’s up?“

“Sam wants to know when you’ll bring her the microscope she asked for. She’s getting impatient,“ the archaeologist explained.

“Sorry,“ Jack said with a shrug and fetched the device from the cupboard, “Well, Makepeace – keep looking for new characters. The archaeological department wants the complete alphabet of this language until seven p.m. Just keep copying whatever you think is a new letter ...“ Jack grinned and turned around to head outside. He pulled Daniel with him.

“What’s going on?“ the archaeologist asked.

“Nothing.“

They stepped into the sunlight and Jack walked the one hundred feet back to the ruins with Daniel on his heels. The ruins were situated under large, juicily green trees.

“Fantastic weather, don’t you think? Carter, catch it.“ He acted as if he wanted to throw the microscope her way.

Her eyes wide in terror, Sam called, “Sir, don’t you dare!“

Jack laughed, dropping his arms and putting the microscope on the young woman’s working table with infinite care. “Don’t worry. I would never break your toys. Is Teal’c still filming?“

Daniel nodded. “I can’t believe that he needs this long for just four walls.“

They went into the temple.

“Hey, Teal’c!“

While Daniel was staying near the entrance to compare some of the characters, Jack was joining Teal’c. “How’s it going?“

“Very well.“

“Don’t you think that you should start to film another wall? Apparently, Daniel’s still aware of the outside world and he noticed that you spend the last two days filming the same walls. Besides, we’re gating back tomorrow, and the archaeologists want to have all of the temple on film.“

“I’ll film this text one last time, then I’ll head on to the next wall.“

“Cool,“ Jack said.

“Colonel Makepeace is not noticing anything?“

“Please: A guy like Makepeace noticing that he’s been staring at the same damn wall for two days?“
