A/N: Here's the next coffee related prompt for the prompt war I am currently waging on CorruptedSmile. Her counter attacks can be seen on her page :P


Jack O’Neil was not in a good mood. A new member has been assigned to his team without his approval and to make things worse she was actually competent. Extremely so. She didn’t complain about orders, she didn’t freak out if something weird happened on a planet and she was physically able to keep up. More than keep up really. She was the only person he knew that could spar with Teal’c and actually win 3 times out of 5.

Relatively speaking all those are good things of course. But they’re not so good when you’ve been camping on some jungle planet for the past week with limited supply of everything in order to spy on a Goa'uld mother ship. Everyone was tired and grumpy. Except the new kid. She went into some sort of hyper-alert mode. She slept very little and seemed to keep constant surveillance of her surrounding area. And instead of this making her tired and grumpy it made her hyperactive and bouncy. And now Daniel had the bright idea to give the girl some coffee. As though she needed additional energy.

After listening to Buffy’s babbling report of the exciting wildlife she spotted on her patrol, Jack finally snapped.

“Stop. Just stop. No babbling, no bouncing and no over excitement. Now, you are banned from any further coffee consumption on this mission. Is that clear?”

Buffy just nodded in shock.

“Good. Now repeat your report in a calm and coherent way.”

After getting his report, Jack sent Buffy to replace Teal’c on guard duty and made a mental note: get some Ritalin before the next mission.

A/N: So, did you like it? Please review and let me know. Then you can go over to CorruptedSmile's page to check out the prompt answers she's posted so far
