She is so screwed.

Tongue to her breast.
Daniel hadn't said anything the next morning
as she took watch on zero sleep and he kept her company on too much caffeine.
It hadn't even been light yet, as they'd
sat near the dwindling fire. But as the sun had begun to peak over the mountain, she had caught him looking at her with an
odd expression on his face.
"What?" She'd demanded, snatching a cup of the cooling coffee for herself before the team
addict consumed it all.
"You look tired."
She'd managed to resist the urge to roll her eyes, but only just.
"I think you'll find that I look like someone on guard."
"And you're grumpy," He'd continued, apparently oblivious
to the fact that she'd opened her mouth at all. "You're never grumpy."
"I'm not grumpy."
"And snippy." He'd
raised an eyebrow at her. "You're never snippy."
"You never pick at my moods, either."
"Sure I do." He'd nodded
and shrugged, "You just never hear it."
She'd glared at him.
A really really
intense glare and she'd
almost been able to see the blood drain from his face as he realized that he was up the proverbial creek, minus a paddle.
"What I meant, ah, is that... you're never grumpy."
"Well, I am today." She'd growled - which really didn't
help her defense in the long run - before rising, dumping her half-empty cup on the ground and taking off to check the perimeter.

at his gentle voice. He's always so softly-spoken towards her and she is reminded of a large teddy bear. One that could snap
her neck within about two seconds, but a teddy bear nonetheless. "I'm fine, Teal'c."
"Daniel Jackson was concerned."
he now? "I'm fine."
"And yet you appear troubled."
"Just thinking." She shrugs.
"Shall I present you
with a penny?"
She loves it when he makes a joke. She doesn't always get them at first, but they're always funnier
when he tells them. She smiles. "That wont be necessary."
He is silent for a moment and she envisions his head tilting
to the side as he thinks. "O'Neill also appears to be troubled."
It's a casual comment, said as he moves around behind
her, hanging his jacket in the locker and retrieving his shower gear, no doubt. "I hadn't noticed."
"Nor has Daniel
Jackson." Thank God for small mercies. "Perhaps you should converse with him?"
"Why would I do that?"

"Why do you say that?" Was there a neon
sign above her head? 'Here is Samantha Carter. She fucked her boss. On a mission. Everyone knows about it.'

Does he mean that?
"I love you, too."

well-intentioned trek back to her lab had landed her at the door to his office. She'd been knocking before she could talk
herself out of it. He was never in his office anyway, he did everything humanly possibly to avoid being there. There was the
paperwork, he didn't want anything to do with that.
But he'd answered the door.
this isn't the least bit awkward. "Teal'c is worried about you." Good opener, Carter. She mentally slaps herself.
She doesn't say anything to that. She raises her eyebrow and he sighs, moving back from the entryway and gesturing
for her to enter. He knows as well as she does that this will hang over them until they have The Conversation.

"We're OK with that?"
Haven't they had this conversation before? "Yes Sir. None of
this has to leave that room."
It's the right thing to say.

She leaves his office quickly.
He doesn't try to stop her.
