Author's Chapter Notes:
My first and probably only drabble. What a fluke. :-)

Alphagate's YOUR LIST LIFE DEPENDS ON IT! 100 word drabble challenge.
I know their footprints.

The first time I saw them starkly outlined in blood I started to understand.
I swipe my mop through one. That would be Jackson's, worn down in front.
Another right next to his is worn at the heel. Only one and a scuff.
In my mind's eye I see Jackson half-carrying O'Neill to the gurney.
The worn-heeled print disappears at the gurney's bloody tracks.
Teal'c's are easy. I heard he carried Carter home.

The prints blend under my mop until there's just a reddish stain on the gateroom floor.

Amazing what you can learn from footprints.
