7. In Even More Danger


"Does it look as if it's safe to leave?" Daniel asked, when the train had stopped.

O'Neill, who was looking out through the hatch, closed it again quickly, plunging the train car back into darkness. "We'll have to wait. There's people nearby. We're parked in what looks like a pretty isolated part of the harbour, so that's good at least. As soon as those people leave, we should be able to escape unnoticed. Get ready to move, folks!"

Moments later, someone approached the train car, and SG-1 grew silent, hoping whomever it was would leave without discovering anything.

"This car is not locked!" a voice said from the outside.

"Let me see!" another voice said, approaching.

The members of SG-1 all took out the weapons they had gotten at the hunting store, and prepared themselves as the door was opened from the outside and someone shone a light inside.

"What the hell?" O'Neill exclaimed. "Major Davis?"

"Hello, Colonel O'Neill. Good to see you." He raised his gun. "Major Carter, Doctor Jackson, and Teal'c - you are suspected of kidnapping the President's advisor."

O'Neill rolled his eyes. "Cut the crap! Of course they haven't abducted me, Major!"

He hesitated. "Perhaps we should speak in private." He turned to the two men standing a short distance behind him. "Wait over by that building."

The two men left, not looking as if they agreed with the decision.

"Okay, what now?" O'Neill asked, as the other man jumped up into the train car.

"Major," Sam greeted.

"Carter?" O'Neill asked.

Sam pointed to her disruption device. A light was showing, proving it was active.

"Is something the matter?" Major Davis asked.

"No." O'Neill shook his head and gave him a relieved smile. "Nothing's wrong. So, you've been told I've been abducted by my teammates, huh?"

Major Davis nodded. "Yes." He lowered his gun. "I know that is not true, Colonel. I am aware of the alien infiltration, and I managed to maneuver it so I was the one sent to retrieve you. Do not be concerned. We are a whole group working to put things right again."

"That's great! When can we meet them?" O'Neill asked.

"Not right now. Everything has to be kept secret. That is also why you have to come with me for now."

"Back to the alien facility?" Daniel asked, suspiciously.

"Do not worry. I will not let them hook you back up. This is just part of the plan, until we are ready to move against them," Major Davis said.

"What plan?" O'Neill asked, starting to get suspicious.

"I cannot tell you of it right now. We cannot risk sharing the information with anyone else right now. So, are you coming?"

O'Neill hesitated for several moments, then he went to get the bottle of 'moonshine'. "Okay. We'll come with you. But first, let's drink to the successful execution of your plan - whatever it is." He handed Major Davis the bottle.

He looked at it for a moment, then took it and opened it. "As you wish." He took a large swig of it, with no apparent discomfort, then handed it back to O'Neill. "Thank you. Your turn."

O'Neill glared at him. "Any human would have reacted to drinking that! Teal'c, Carter!" He aimed his gun at him. "He's an alien!"

The others raised their weapons as well.

"So now you are not trusting me just because I can hold my liquor?" 'Major Davis' asked, a derogatory tone in his voice. Suddenly he raised his gun, and would have fired at Sam, if Teal'c had not been faster.

Teal'c shot 'Major Davis' in the arm, causing him to let go of his weapon with a cry. Purple blood immediately began to drip from him.

"You will never escape! Never free your world!" the alien exclaimed, before jumping out of the train car.

SG-1 shot after him, but did not hit him again. Several cries of alarm was heard, and people started running towards them.

"Shit! We've got to get out of here!" O'Neill exclaimed.

They all left the train car, abandoning all their stuff as they fled.

Except for Teal'c, they were all still heavily affected by the weakness from spending so long in the alien device, and so they could not run very fast. They fired their weapons in the general direction of the pursuers, and that held them off for long enough that all members of SG-1 made it out from the railroad area and onto the road beside it.

"Watch out! A car is coming!" Daniel warned.

Instead of moving aside, O'Neill stepped out in the middle of the road and pointed his gun at the oncoming car.

"Wait! Are you crazy?" Daniel exclaimed.

Teal'c and Sam joined O'Neill on the road. The car stopped, brakes screeching, a few feet before them.

O'Neill ripped open the door on the driver's side. "Out! Now!" he ordered.

A terrified man exited the car, as quickly as possible. "Ye... yes. Please don't hurt me!"

"I'm not going to hurt you! We need your car. Keys!"

Sam and Daniel had already opened two of the other doors and were getting into the car. Teal'c fired several shots in the direction of the men pursuing them, making them jump to safety.

"The keys... the keys are still in the ignition..." the car owner stammered, looking between O'Neill and Teal'c, who was now getting into the car as well.

"Great. Give me your wallet!" O'Neill insisted.

The man obeyed, too scared to do anything else. "Here."

O'Neill grabbed the money in it then threw the wallet at the owner. "Thank you - and sorry." He jumped into the car, and slammed the door.

"Contact the Air Force! They'll reimburse you!" Sam shouted after the car owner as they drove off. "Probably. Unless aliens have taken over," she added in a low voice.

The men that had been pursuing SG-1 now shot at them as they drove away, but fortunately they did not hit.

"This is getting tiresome!" Daniel cried out, when O'Neill took the curve in too high speed.

"Oh, I agree! What would you have me do differently?" O'Neill exclaimed, swerving desperately to avoid hitting an oncoming car.

"Sorry. I didn't mean it like that. I guess, I guess I'm just tired of being on the run," Daniel said, apologetically.

"We all are," Teal'c told him.

Sam let out a cry as the car made another sharp turn, slamming her injured arm against the side of the car.

"Sam?" Daniel asked, worried.

She gritted her teeth and shook her head. "I'll, I'll be fine."

"Hang on, guys!" O'Neill said, just as he took a very sharp turn.

"Our pursuers did not react in time. They will have to turn around," Teal'c informed them.

"Yes!" O'Neill stepped hard on the speeder, accelerating away to put as much distance between them and the car following them as he could.

"It would seem we have lost them," Teal'c said.

"Yes," O'Neill agreed, relieved. "No sign of them."

"How far from Anchorage are we?" Sam wondered.

"Not as far as I would like to. We've got a long way to go, because I think we can safely assume we can't go back and hop a boat or something," O'Neill said. "They've clearly got us on watch."

"Agreed. We should probably stay away from any larger cities," Sam said.

"What about Canada? Could we go that way?" Daniel wondered. "I mean, I know we have to cross through parts of it if we're driving, but I mean could we stay there for a while?"

"I doubt we'd be safe there. To be honest, I don't even know if we dare cross the border anywhere near a border point. We'll probably have to find somewhere remote."

"Could we not travel by train again?" Teal'c suggested.

"I don't think we can risk it, Teal'c. They'll be guarding them now, I'm sure. Not to mention that there aren't a lot of trains that go the way we want," O'Neill said. He checked in the mirror. There were few cars on the road, and none that seemed to stick out. "I think we're in the clear." He let out a sigh of relief. "They'll have reported this car stolen. We need to ditch it as soon as possible."

"Maybe we could try find a rest area where trucks stop, and sneak aboard one of those," Sam suggested.

O'Neill considered it. "It's not a bad idea. As long as we don't dump the car too close to it they may not even suspect that's what we've done, and even so it would be pretty hard checking all of them." He made a decision. "Sure, let's try it!"

"We also need to get some antibiotics for Sam," Daniel reminded them.

Sam grimaced. "If we can just get some painkillers then that should do it for now. We'd better get as far away from here as possible, as quickly as possible."

"You have an infection bad enough that you're running a fever!" Daniel pointed out.

"The naquadah in my blood seems to slow it down, though, or maybe it's some other change from Jolinar. Janet had noticed it at some point, actually."

"In reality or in our fantasy?" O'Neill asked, bluntly.

"Reality. I think," Sam said. "I'm sure, okay?"

O'Neill sighed. "Either way you're right. We do need to get out of here, so unless it's immediately urgent, then escape is the only thing we can think of right now."

"One other thing," Daniel said. "We need to get something to eat soon."

"Indeed," Teal'c said.

O'Neill's stomach rumbled at that very moment. "Right, we do. I got some money from the poor guy we, ah, borrowed the car from. Teal'c, please check how much we got."

"Certainly." Teal'c picked up the money from the floor of the car, where O'Neill had dumped them when they left at full speed. "There are 159 dollars."

Daniel whistled. "That's quite a lot! We still have the 50 dollars we've gathered earlier, so that's more than 200 dollars!"

"We'll stop at the next store and buy some provisions - and painkillers, if they have them," O'Neill him.

"No problems?" O'Neill asked, when Teal'c, Sam, and Daniel returned to the car carrying their purchases.

The car was almost hidden behind some bushes, at the far end of the parking lot. Since O'Neill was the President's advisor - or at least O'Neill's imposter was - and he had just been 'abducted', it was best if no one saw him.

"No, we got what we needed," Daniel said. "However..."

"I think the shop assistant was suspicious of us," Sam said.

"I agree. We should leave quickly," Teal'c added.

They put the stuff they had bought into the trunk and got into the car, and then O'Neill drove out of the parking lot.

He turned on the radio, and searched through the channels. "I thought I'd see if there's a news program."

"...from our correspondent in Turkey. Now we return for more news on the kidnapping of the Presidential advisor, Colonel Jonathan J. O'Neill, known as Colonel Jack O'Neill. This case continues to escalate, with the information that he has been sighted in Alaska, in Anchorage, this morning. His abductors are still in full control, and while it seems he was trying to escape, he regrettably did not succeed. The local police reports that he and his kidnappers were last seen driving east on Interstate A-1, in a stolen blue Honda Accord, with the license plate..."

"Oh, no! We're on the news!" Daniel said.

"Shh!" O'Neill hissed.

"...described as armed and dangerous. As reported earlier, one of the criminals is a former US Air Force Major, Samantha Carter. She is white, 30 years old, 5 foot 9 inch, and blond. Her accomplices are Doctor Daniel Jackson, a 35 years old white male, 6 foot tall, brown hair, and a black man known only as Teal'c, 6 foot 3 inches, and about the same age as Doctor Jackson. He is described as bald and with a golden tattoo on his forehead. All three are to be considered extremely intelligent and Major Carter and Teal'c are skilled in military combat and highly dangerous. If you do see any of them, do not approach, but call the police on the following number..."

"Okay, I think we've learned enough to know that we can't let anyone see us - and that the people in the store almost certainly have reported seeing you," O'Neill grumbled.

"I can be dangerous too!" Daniel complained.

"I'm guessing this also means the three of us are now considered expendable," Sam said.

"I agree," Teal'c said.

"Not necessarily. Even before, Daniel was the only one they could probably use except me, since they can't access your memories or personality, and it seems as if they've decided to ditch him from the people they masquerade as now. It doesn't mean they'll kill any of you," O'Neill pointed out.

"No... not immediately, at least. They probably still need us in the simulation," Sam decided. "If that's the case, they can at least not shoot us outright."

"So we're safe in that way - unless some trigger-happy local policeman decides to help the country by killing us," Daniel mumbled.

"In any case, we should get rid of this car as quickly as possible, and try Carter's plan," O'Neill decided.
