[For Jack]

Jane was beginning to worry. It wasn't that she had ever stopped, but now that the ball was fast approaching and months had now passed, she was beginning to worry once more that the subject of her physical intimacy with Carwood would be broached and Jane was still unsure as to what she was supposed to say to him or offer him.

She was perched beside the clothing box with crossed-legs, her dress covering every inch of them as she sifted through the materials and the clothes and she wondered at what precisely a woman was supposed to wear in order to...well, please a man. She felt hopeless, wishing that she could know more of this instead of be so haplessly clueless as she was.

Jack had laundry again. It was getting to be a habit, him and laundry, and he barely let it pile up before he was taking a load up to the Compound to wash. Never would have happened that way back home but hey, some things changed, especially when he had all sorts of available time on his hands. He settled the basket down with a less-than-graceful move and grinned a little when he saw Jane sitting near the clothes box.

"Looking for something or just thinking? Because if you can get that thing to give me a decent pair of swim trunks, I'm your new best friend."

Jack settled down next to her. "What did you have in mind? Cause I can try and ask it for you, but as a warning, it might give me something a little racier than what you're normally after."

He shrugged, sheepish. "At least, that's what it does when I try to pick for Sam. Gives me really short dresses. No class at all, that box."

Jack snorted. "You don't need that stuff, Jane. You're pretty without showing off everything you've got. But, if you really want me to ask it for something sexy, I guess I can try. I'll just think...Carterish thoughts. Cause I think you're gorgeous, but not that way, you know?"

Jack tried to stamp down his initial reaction, given he didn't really want to think about Jane in that way and tried to figure out how best to give her objective advice. It helped he'd met Carwood and thought he was an okay guy. Really okay guy.

"Look, I get wanting to wear something other than the neck to ankles get up you're used to, but I'm telling you, you're a pretty enough girl that he's not gonna care if you look sexy. I mean, I met him. I think he likes you a lot. That said, I'll help you pick a dress a man's gonna like, okay?"

He grinned a little and reached into the box. "Here's hoping, huh?"

Hmm. Black and short, maybe a little too short for Jane. Jack held the dress up so she could see.

"What do you think about this one? I'm guessing you have great legs under there, so this might work."

"I think so," Jack said, giving her an appraising look. "I met Carwood though, and I'm telling you, he likes you just like you are. I don't think you need to do this, unless you're doing it for you."

"No, it's not," Jack agreed, pawing through the box while she changed. "But I'm just saying that the whole physically attractive thing isn't as big a deal as you might think. It matters, yeah, but there's other stuff that's way more important."

Jack looked her over with a practiced eye, trying to forget about Jane's little sister nature and think more about how he'd look at Carter. Jane did have legs under there. Who knew?

He whistled lowly. "See, now that's classy. You look good, Jane. Mean that, wouldn't just say it to say it."

"Black's also classy and sexy where I come from. Carwood too, probably. You could probably get away with wearing red though," Jack mused, looking her over. "Carter wears red sometimes."

In his dreams, maybe, but he didn't need to tell Jane that.

"If he's got any sense he'll kiss you until your toes curl," Jack said, laughing a little. "I'm guessing the talk's about sex, right?"

"Well, you're ready to have it, I'm guessing?" Jack asked, watching her in the dress. "Try blue. I think that'd work. And really, all you've gotta do is say yes, Jane. He's a man. We tend to go running at that kind of encouragement."

Jack snorted a little. "I would, if I was getting any. Encouragement, that is."

"If he's worth a damn, he'll know you're worth it to be taught," Jack said sagely. "Mean that. He needs to take his time and teach you. Besides, you've gotta know some about it...you've got a kid, after all."

"That's hardly any fun," Jack said quietly. "It's supposed to be fun, you know, and not something to stress you out. I really think if you talk to him the way you're talking to me, it'll help."
