Summary: Together, Daniel and Jack brave a few more steps along the road to Daniel's recovery
Daniel sat heavily on the bed, He had most of his mobility back; it was months after the staff weapon incident – yet he still had weary moments. He looked up and saw Jack walk into the room.
Both Jack and Daniel were still members of the SGC, still worked for the Stargate Program, but they weren't in the field as much, off-world... Daniel now, because of his injuries, and the recovery time; Jack because he said he didn't have the knees for it anymore..! They were, however, still on call, still to be found, more often than not, in their offices and the corridors of the SGC. It wasn't as if they had that much more time on their hands, but they did some nights like this...
"Hey..." Jack said, with his usual affection, and he bent to kiss Daniel's lips.
Daniel leant back on his hands, his head tilted upwards to await, enrapture, and encapture Jack's lips...
Jack climbed onto the bed; helping Daniel to slide further back on to it
"I suddenly seem to have woken up again..." Daniel whispered into Jack's mouth.
"Are you sure?" Jack asked.
"Jack, just undo me before I burst!" Daniel admitted.
"You need me that much..!?" Jack smirked. His hands met one of Daniel's at the waistband to Daniel's jeans, and Jack began to unbutton, and then, unzip his lover...
"Jack..!" Daniel answered impatiently.
Jack smiled, and obliged, carefully leaning over Daniel... He shimmied out of his own underwear, letting that which had covered him to fall to the floor. His erection hit denim. Daniel's denim.
Daniel and Jack yanked his jeans off, letting them fall with Jack's underwear... Daniel's whole body buzzed as he felt Jack, hard, against his flesh...
"What do you want??" Jack asked.
"We have to try it out sometime..." Daniel mused... "Might as well be now..."
"It doesn't have to be, Daniel..." Jack breathed into Daniel's ear.
"I'm sure!" Daniel said emphatically, finding that, actually, he was. He was yearning for Jack, every part of his own body, reaching for Jack's.
Jack tried not to let his hands, his whole body shake, as he aligned himself with Daniel, being careful, so careful around those scars... He was nervous of hurting Daniel, yes. He had to try and maintain a confidence for himself as well as Daniel, but the shaking wasn't only about all that – he found that he wanted Daniel so incredibly much... That wasn't so unusual, but it was particularly overpowering tonight... Yet it wasn't as though anything had, even subconsciously been missing from his love life before... Daniel had opened up everything for Jack – Heart, body, mind... Daniel was right alongside Jack, with him, now, in every good thing, and helping him through the bad more than ever before, though that was barely possible...
"It's okay, Jack..." Daniel meant his words. "I'm excited about it, too! It's like you said last night, don't worry about whether it means anything; just enjoy it!!" He smiled.
Jack saw that smile, and, at the same time as its heart and brilliance nearly stopped his heart, it made it beat all the faster... Jack moved forward, and truly entered into Daniel... He managed, on some level, to stop worrying about all of it, including that he might somehow, literally, crush Daniel's original bits... It wouldn't be funny. He let that fear melt though, so that his erection wouldn't, and he felt Daniel's own tip touch his body as, together, they began to tend to one another. He looked at Daniel, as their magnetised bodies clung to each other, moments before the rhythm started for them both... "You still okay?"
"Fine!" Daniel smiled, and kissed Jack. "Fine!" He emphasised again. "I promise you!"
They caught each other lips in a kiss mirrored by their bodies, knowing already, and as always, that their hearts and minds were together on this, too...
It was, as ever, a union and communion both men were unfalteringly grateful for...
