“Daniel Jackson?“

The archaeologist looked up at his tent mate with raised eyebrows. “What’s up?“

Teal’c’s right eyebrow was raised slightly. “Is it not time for us to make a bet, again?“

Daniel sat up a little straighter, clearing his throat. Questioningly, he widened his eyes. “Bet?“

Teal’c suspected that Daniel knew very well what he was talking about.

“It is my understanding that all your memories have returned by now, Daniel Jackson. If that is the case, then your memories of our bets have returned as well.“

Daniel cleared his throat again, glancing to the tent’s entrance. “Right, but it’s been a while since we’ve done this.“

“I for one have always had a good time, Daniel Jackson.“

Daniel smiled. “Who didn’t?“

Teal’c raised an eyebrow. “What do you mean? Are we not the only ones playing that particular game, Daniel Jackson?“

In an effort to calm Teal’c down, Daniel raised both his hands. “Sure, it was just ...“ He sighed when he saw Teal’c’s lips twitch at the corners.

“You should really stop playing dumb. It doesn’t work as well as it did.“

“It works perfectly well with O’Neill.“

“Yeah, whatever. Okay … to get back to topic … what’s at stake here?“ Daniel was fiddling with his pen while Teal’c thought about it.

“If I lose, I will join O’Neill on one of his fishing trips.“

Daniel grinned. “Perfect.“ Then he thought what he could afford to lose.

“You could do what we already talked about at length,“ Teal’c suggested.

“Uh … you know, actually … I want to not do that.“

“Why?“ Teal’c asked, “Major Carter thinks it is a great idea and O’Neill does too.“

Daniel’s mouth opened in shock. He gasped. “I … I thought that you were the only one Sam talked to about it? Did she tell Jack? I’m toast.“

“Major Carter and myself have honoured your wish to not tell O’Neill. However, it is not a secret among the base and even O’Neill knows.“

Daniel glared at Teal’c.

“Should you feel embarrassed to do it, I will ask in your name-“

“No way. Alright, I’ll ask Janet out, okay? Me. Not you or Sam or Jack. What’s the matter with you? I can decide on my own when I’m going to ask a woman out and when I don’t.“

Teal’c smiled softly. “There is no reason to be nervous.“

Daniel ducked his head. “Okay. So … you’re going to go fishing and I’m going to go out with Janet.“

“No, you are going to ask Dr. Fraiser out.“

Daniel sighed. His team colleagues knew very well that he had gigantic difficulties in appealing to women. “That’s clear then. Who do you want to root for?“ Daniel asked to deter Teal’c from the topic of his dating habits.

Teal’c thought about it for a moment. “Major Carter.“

“Why are you so sure about that?“

“I do not know. I just have a feeling that it will play out that way. Are bets not about having feelings, Daniel Jackson?“

The younger man nodded. “Right. Well, then I’ll root for Jack.“

“You have already lost, Daniel Jackson.“

“Oh, I don’t think so. I know Jack.“

The sun was already penetrating the tent’s walls and Daniel was just putting on his right boot when he heard Jack’s voice from outside. “Morning, Carter.“

“Morning, Sir.“

He looked meaningfully at Teal’c and the Jaffa nodded at him slowly. While Daniel was tying his laces and Teal’c was putting on his vest, they eavesdropped to outside. They heard Sam passing by their tent and sitting down with Jack at the fire. The colonel cleared his throat and Sam asked, “Did you sleep well, Sir?“

“Me? Like a rock,“ he answered, “And you?“

“I was working with the samples the whole night.“

“Daniel Jackson, O’Neill does not seem to be in the mood to-“

“Wait,“ Daniel hissed, “Just because he’s doing it later today doesn’t mean that he won’t do it at all.“ He crawled to the tent entrance and shoved the tarpaulin a little aside to be able to see outside. After a couple of silent minutes, he turned around to face Teal’c again. “You win. Even though Sam’s looking really tired today. I don’t know why Jack’s doing that.“

Teal’c smiled. “I knew that Major Carter would have to get her coffee on her own.“

“Yeah, you did,“ Daniel sighed, “They’ll never get it right.“
