Sam and the Capture
A/N: See chapter 1 for disclaimer, spoilers, notes on AU, and why Xander has his eye back.
Sam moved nearly silently along the walkway. Teal’c moved even more silently on the other side of the motel room. Daniel managed not to make too much noise. Teal’c stealthily moved into position and put his weapon away before he inserted both keys into the door.
Sam gave Teal’c the signal. Teal’c snapped both keys in the locks and swung the door open, somersaulting through the opening and pulling out his Double Eagle as he did so. He expertly took up position with his handgun aimed at the bed. Sam ducked through the door going the other way, and ended up against the wall, with a dresser on her right. Daniel stayed out on the walkway in backstop position, just in case Anise had something handy to take them out, like a Gou’a’uld hand device or a zat’nik’atel.
Unfortunately, Sam’s position gave her an excellent view of the display panel of the motel room’s video camera. It had obviously filled up its memory and had stopped recording. Now it was merely looping through the recorded video, which was something Sam really didn’t want to see. It was Anise and this guy Harris. Stark naked. Anise was sitting in the guy’s lap, facing him, with her legs up so high they were on either side of his head. His legs were behind her, bent at the knee to hold her in place, and she was obviously screaming her lungs out, even if the sound was off. Sam uncomfortably wondered why she had to be the one who saw the video.
As for the real Anise, she was lying naked atop Harris, and kissing him while he wrapped his arms about her. Sam didn’t want to watch this either. Jack would have just made a scathing comment that would have had her biting the inside of her mouth to keep from grinning.
Anise stopped kissing the guy and looked at them. She calmly said, “Colonel Carter. What a surprise to see you here.”
Sam couldn’t help herself. She glanced at the image on the video camera and said, “Anise. So nice to see you’re maintaining your flexibility.” Jack would have been so proud of her.
The guy looked at Sam and Teal’c. He closed his eyes and quietly said, “Oh crap.”
Sam was starting to get worried. More worried. A normal guy ought to be a lot more upset and frantic when armed forces suddenly burst into his motel room and caught him in flagrante delicto
, as Daniel would have said.
Anise turned back to her partner and said, “It is all right, Xander. They are not going to hurt you. They don’t do that.”
The guy looked at Sam and said, “What are you doing here?” He looked back at Anise and asked, “Freya? Are you sure you’re gonna be okay?”
Anise tipped her head down toward the guy’s muscled chest. Sam suddenly noticed the guy had scars. A lot of scars. Scars that definitely did not look like construction accidents. A couple possible knife wounds, a couple burns, a couple things that looked like bitemarks from God only knew what, and a few things that looked frighteningly like clawmarks. Really huge clawmarks. Where the hell did you get scars that looked like that? Hand-to-hand combat with grizzly bears? Even Jack didn’t have scars like that!
Anise’s eyes flared white. The guy didn’t even flinch. He just said, “I wish you wouldn’t do that again.”
Again? Great, so Anise had already blown national security into tiny fragments.
Anise said in a colder, firmer voice, “You may call me Anise again.”
Sam tried for a save. “Do you realize that you just took advantage of a psych ward patient with multiple personality disorder?”
The guy had the nerve to laugh. He was naked, with two large caliber automatics pointed at him, and he laughed. “Colonel Samantha Carter, U. S. Air Force, I take it? Nice try. Really. Way better than I would’ve managed. And a great delivery. You gotta give me the name of your drama coach. But seriously? Do you think I can’t tell the difference between a human out of a psych ward, and a demon?”
Oh God. Anise, what have you done?
Anise turned her head enough to look at Sam and complained, “Why couldn’t you have waited until later? Xander promised to show me the reverse cowgirl next, and then the side saddle cowgirl, and even the lazy doggie!”
“I… I don’t want to know. Really, Anise.” Sam didn’t even want to know what the name of the position was that Anise was doing in the video camera image. Hell, she didn’t even think she could bend that far. And Jack’s knees probably wouldn’t take that kind of stress for that long. Sam felt like she was blushing all the way down to her feet. And she wasn’t one of the naked people.
Daniel said from outside the door, “They’re American names for common Kama Sutra positions.”
“I was pretty sure of that already, Daniel, but thanks.”
Teal’c didn’t look at Sam as he asked, “Are there any records of the images on that camera system?”
Sam said, “We’ll clear ‘em after we make sure there’s nothing Anise shouldn’t have said.”
Xander looked at Anise and said, “He’s got the same speech patterns as you. Another demon?”
Anise growled, “I have told you, Xander. I am not a demon! The Gou’a’uld are not like us. We are Tok’ra!”
Teal’c solemnly said, “Indeed. I am not a demon.”
The guy stopped and stared at Anise. “Tok’ra? Umm… Opposed to Ra? You’re fighting a sun god?”
Sam stopped blushing and started blanching. Who the hell was this kid? A ‘construction crew guy’ from Ohio, with enough money to buy at O’Malley’s for his whole crew? Who also had scars like he’d been tortured, maybe using wild animals? And he also
knew enough ancient Egyptian to figure out the meaning of the word Tok’ra off the top of his head? God, that was getting up toward Daniel’s skill level! She didn’t know who this kid was, but she was going to have to find out fast. She was going to have to cover up what could turn out to be the biggest leak for the Stargate program since the NID almost got their intelligence on the Stargate program released on national television. She was going to have to handle what was already a diplomatic fiasco.
How could this get any worse?
Anise smiled smugly at Sam. “Not only does he know much of the language of the Tok’ra, but he also speaks some Ancient. He knew what the astria porta
Sam groaned inwardly. Okay, things just got a lot worse.
