Summary: "You know, if you're going to pretend to be someone's cousin, the least you can do is actually make sure he has cousins."
Warnings: This will eventually be slash however, this scene is pre-slash. All the fifty scenes take place in the Reunion 'Verse" but takes place prior to that fic (and while it seems some events in this contradict Reunion, this is not the case). Please note that in this fic I've given Clone!Jack O'Neill the surname 'Peters' (same as Clone!Jack in Fragile Existence. I found it easier being consistent). If ever mentioned, the original Jack O'Neill will be referred to as O'Neill.
Spoilers: Supernatural -- Season 1 Supernatural. Stargate -- Season 7.
Disclaimer: None of the characters of either Stargate or Supernatural belong to
Dedications: For kaylashay and azraelz_angel for being Reunion 'verse cheerleaders! And to delibby for being my beta for these 50Scenes.

"You know, if you're going to pretend to be someone's cousin, the least you can do is actually make sure he has cousins."

Sam sits upright in bed, sleep vanishing at the sound of the voice. There's no greeting, no familiarity to the voice, but the words tell Sam exactly who is calling him at two in the morning. "Jack?"

"That's my name," he says. "I can't exactly say the same for you."

Sam winces as the meaning of Jack's words sink in. The surprise and relief at hearing from Jack after six days of silence (six days and four more mysterious comas) is almost overwhelming. He and Dean had figured that Jack had split town after the police couldn’t find him (although Dean blamed Sam ‘accidentally’ showing him their dad’s diary for Jack’s disappearance rather than the fact that Jack was now the police’s prime suspect). Now, however, Sam understands why Jack never called.

"So," Jack continues when Sam doesn't say anything. "Sam… "

Damn. "My name is Sam," he tells him, for all the good it's going to do him. Suddenly, Sam finds himself wishing he never told Jack he was Harrison's cousin. "Sam Winchester."

"Sam Winchester," Jack echoes in a way that strikes Sam as a little odd. "So, Sam Winchester, want to tell me why you were pretending to be Harrison’s cousin?"

Sam hesitates, trying to work out how to answer this without scaring Jack off. Something in his gut tells him that this is his one and only chance to get Jack to trust him. If he fails… he has no doubt he’ll never see Jack again. The police have been looking for Jack since they found four more kids in inexplicable comas, the day after they met the teenager, and from what he and Dean had been able to discern, Jack had disappeared without a trace -- much to the frustration of the police and to him and Dean.

Jack is the only survivor, as far as they are aware, and he’s the only one who can tell them what’s hurting all these kids.

"We wanted to find out what really happened to your friends," he says, deciding to go with the truth. "We didn’t think you’d tell us the truth if we pretended we were with the police."

His confession is met with silence and when Sam begins to fear that he's blown his and Dean's one and only chance to find out what is hurting these kids, Jack speaks. "Yeah, well, you're probably right."

Sam tries to hide his sigh of relief that Jack seems to take him at his word.

"I guess lying is the only way you get information on a Hunt."

He freezes. "H…hunt?"

Jack ignores him. "You told me to give you a call if I had any further information."

"Yeah."

"Got a pen?"

Sam searches the bedside table frantically while Jack rattles off an address. He finds one and writes it down as quickly as he can, all the while a million questions going through his head. Mainly questions to do with how Jack knew they were on a hunt.

"I'll be here for a few more hours at least," Jack tells him. "Now that Dean's awake, the two of you should come over. We have a bit to talk about."

The line goes dead and Sam's head whips around to his brother's bed. Dean is sitting up, blinking his eyes sleepily.

"Who was on the phone?"

Sam doesn't answer, instead he jumps out of his bed and goes straight to the window, searching for any sign of Jack. The parking lot is empty except for the Impala. There's no Jack… so how did he know Dean was awake? Lucky guess?

Somehow, Sam doesn't think so.

"Get up, Dean, we have to go."

Willowy smile

OMFG I almost died when you removed me from your friends list at your personal journal. But I am alive and well now knowing you have a fic journal :P

Still a little bummed but I understand :)

*hugs* I'm sorry. The only reason I actually removed you from my flist is that you posted spoilers (or what looked like spoilers from what I read -- I stopped reading when I realised what I was reading) for recent supernatural episodes that I hadn't seen. I'm a huge spoiler phobe about TV shows (I was spoiled for character deaths in both Buffy and Stargate).

Because being such a spoiler phobe is my issue, I just thought I'd defriend you to be safe (I hate bugging people about spoilers -- some get cranky with me). However, if you put any spoiler discussion behind a cut, I can refriend you again. :D

pwned

Holy cow I forgot to put it behind the cut. I'm sorry hon I am usally a stickler about spoilers myself.

I understand about spoilers it sucks when you read by accident and it totally ruins the story.

I will remember from now on I promise :P

No that's completely okay. I've actually honed avoiding spoilers to a fine art. During the season, I avoid most fic sites (the character death spoiler for Stargate actually occurred because someone wrote the spoiler in the summary *shakes head).

And I've just re-friended you!
