More pictures flashed through his mind.
**What? Oh sheesh...you saw those too?**
**Yes. Stop it.**
**I can't help it. It's how I think of you.**
**None of your business.**
**I'm naked and stabbed in all of them. I think it's my business.**
**You are not. Just most of them for maximum pain.**
**You are severely demented. I'd rather be connected to Carter than you.**
**You mean Dr. Fraiser.**
Jack grimaced and then really panicked.
**What if she saw?**
**Stop it. Yuck!**
Jack barely noticed her objections, his thoughts roiling.
**Bad enough I went through that...**
**What? I did not maul you.**
**It was disgusting.**
**Now that I agree with. For a doctor, your teeth are pathetic.**
**No wonder you were disappointed. I'm not into biting.**
**I'm talking hygiene.**
**I got my insult in first.**
**Mine was better and started before yours did.**
**No kidding. Must be your age that slowed it down enough for mine to slip in.**
Jack felt his eyes open.
He closed them just as fast.
**No way. I'm not staring at you for eternity. Am I dead? This is definitely a possible version of Hell.**
**At least you're not deluded about your final resting-place. What did you see? Mine still won't open.**
**You didn't see what I saw?**
**No. I get a lot of sickening stuff involving Dr. Fraiser and disconnected memories of SG-1, but not with each thought.**
**Same here. I mean, I'm getting signals with each of your thoughts, but the pictures are just kind of a small stream now with a few strong ones. Except for the ones involving my death, I don't recognize anyone.**
**Good. Let's keep it that way.**
**Just determined to be a sweetheart about this, aren't ya.**
**What did you see?**
**You. White everything and you lying down, your head turned toward me. Still fuzzy, but definitely you.**
**Okay, mine are open now. I only see you, too...wait...okay...other shapes are forming. You may just have to keep them open.**
Jack opened his eyes again and saw her staring at him.
**Seeing anything yet?**
**Shapes moving around, but nothing concrete yet.**
Pain lanced through Jack.
**Was that me?**
**No. It was me. I think it's a penlight. Oh it hurts.**
**What do you mean?**
**I remember thinking maybe I was wrong about you and then we were suddenly kissing...why?**
Jack felt intense disgust radiate through him.
Then he realized the disgust wasn't his.
**Ugh...feeling a bit sick are we?**
**I just had a feeling that wasn't mine. Different than the anger. I almost couldn't tell it wasn't mine.**
**I wonder what kind of connection we have. It's strange.**
Jack felt his body shudder and felt hands pressing on his chest.
**Are they doing CPR? Great. I may be dying or something.**
Fear raced around his stomach.
**That's how you feel afraid? I'm different.**
**I know. Your toes curl. That's why I never saw the fear before today. I wasn't looking inside your shoes.**
He could tell she wasn't amused.
**Do I really look like a statue?**
**I can't help it. I didn't realize just how...I mean I did, but it didn't really hit me...I don't know.**
**Real coherent there Corvores.**
**Call me Amber.**
**No, I don't think so.**
His vision was slowly gaining definition.
He saw colored blocks moving around.
**Legos? Aren't you a little old for that?**
**Okay. That's it. We need some ground rules.**
**Why? So you can break them whenever you feel like it?**
**That's your problem? Rules?**
**I can see pretty well now.**
**Why should I answer you? You may have somehow gotten into my mind, but I'm under no commitment to you of any kind.**
**I'm in charge.**
**Not here you aren't.**
**Dr. Fraiser is the one who apparently was bathing you. Nurse Morhs is taking your blood. What?**
**Demona? You call Angela Morhs, Demona? What a typically childish...**
**She is a demon. Maybe even a vampire. She blew in my eye and that's when my brain went weird and I started thinking you were nice.**
**I am nice.**
**No...nice is not the word that comes to mind when I think of you.**
**Which is apparently often.**
**No. Besides, when did she blow in your eye? Make out with her too did you?**
**Wouldn't you like to know.**
**You do seem to have a preoccupation with teeth...fangs would probably apply.**
**You think too much.**
**You don't think at all. No wonder I scare you.**
**You do not.**
**Red flag. I saw the red flag on that one. Red flag obviously means a lie.**
**So you don't hate me.**
**I can see!**
**So can I. Ugh! I really didn't need that.**
**Shut up. It's my mind and seeing Janet first thing is what I wanted so just deal.**
Jack looked into Janet's concerned face and watched her beautiful mouth move.
He ignored Corvores disgust as much as possible.
**Can you hear?**
**No. Weird. They want to know what happened.**
**How do you know?**
**I read lips.**
**Huh? Hey! Stay out of there!**
**It's not like I meant to see it. The memory flashed with the words.**
**If you swear you'll follow the rule, too, and not reveal anything of mine, I'll agree to not reveal anything I learn through this link without your permission.**
**Thank you and yes, I agree.**
**Good. Now please look at someone else for a moment...preferably non-SG-1.**
**No can do. They're filling my entire line of sight....Aack!**
**She's not a demon.**
**Yes, she is!**
