"I'm so tired of all the crap," John said in a steady voice, as he sat down on the soft at Cameron's apartment. "I mean it. Between having my authority
constantly questioned, the fact that I have a civilian on my team is not the issue. It's the attitude that I have to deal with all the time."
"Yeah, I know what that can be like," Cameron said his voice low and filled with a soft southern accent. "I've run up against that issue more than a few times with both Carter and Jackson...I mean they're the best but still..."
"Yeah well at least you aren't having to deal with Rodney, 'I'm perfect', McKay. Even Weir is ready to shoot him at times and she's a civilian and a
Cameron chuckled softly at that. "I'll concede the point that he's bad, but Jackson's always running towards trouble rather than away from it. So it's just
as hard here. But it sounds like you need a serious break, before you go off the deep end John...and I might just have the solution to it."
"Oh really," John asked his voice dropping a bit till it was huskier and hinting at the lust bubbling underneath it all.
"Yep...but not how you're thinking buddy...or at least not entirely," Cameron said softly. "While you were on Atlantis, things have been going to hell here, and in a bit more than the usual way."
"What happened Cam," John asked his voice filled with concern as the picked up on the sudden tension in his friend as well as the pain in his voice. "Talk to me....it works both ways you know."
Cameron let out a soft sigh at that. "I know you remember what happened with Bryce and the crash he was in...he passed on about six months back. I pulled in every favor I was owed and owe a hell of a lot of them as well and for nothing."
John let out a pain filled sigh of his own at that. "I'm so sorry Cam...I know that you two were a lot closer than you and I were...but damn it."
"Yeah....at the end, I was at least able to let him know part of the truth of what I was involved in, but I couldn't save him. I lost it for a bit and
well...found someone at the end of it who it just completely clicked with. Of course we're taking it slow, relatively speaking at the moment, but it's fairly
"Uh huh, and who is the lucky person you fell for? Since I know you swore not to fall for anyone and especially that you weren't going to get involved in
anything serious...so give."
"It's complicated...but it's pretty serious like I said. Plus he heard rumors about the gate and all that and showed me things that completely blew my mind and all that...so before we go any further tonight, let me give him a call and make sure it's not going to be an issue. Maybe see if I can get him up here while you're on leave as well and see what happens."
"Uh huh, why does it sound like you're asking his permission and like you're trying to set me up at the same time?"
Cam just smirked at that. "Well like I said it's a tad complicated...basically I needed forgiveness and I ah...hired someone to put me through the wringer...you remember that one place Bryce ended up getting both of us memberships to."
John choked at that, as he remembered what all had gone on, the few times they'd gone there. "God damn it Cam, what the hell were you thinking?"
"I wasn't...I was in pain and I needed a way to deal with it, before I got booted out of the program. From there things just built and now here we are."
"So what exactly is there between the two of you?"
Cam blushed ever so slightly at that. "He's involved in things that I can't, not won't but can't, talk about. He can respect that I can't talk about the program here, and well....I like the fact that with him, I don't always have to worry, I can just give up control if I want...or take charge as well on occasion."
John let out a soft low whistle at that. "You're telling me, you've switched to more of a Dom/Sub ship, and you're the sub? You the one who always was in charge and didn't want to give up control, now don't have the control? This has got to be a serious thing then...."
Cameron just blushed even brighter red at that and nodded his agreement.
"So tell me about him already," John said with a smirk. "Who's this mystery man that finally hooked you."
"Just let me call him first, and then I'll fill you in on what I can. I think you two would definitely hit it off very well together, as he's a switch and
good at both roles," Cameron said slowly trailing off and shivering. "Or maybe I should say he's more than good but you'll have to wait and see for yourself."
"Yeah, I'm sure we'll see if he's as good as all that...I could definitely use someone to vent on...maybe even on you, make you squeal just like you and Bryce used to do to me."
