Come Pick Me Up - I Think I've Landed...
I didn't care what he said, in fact, I didn't care about alot right now, but Mr. Pryce? Yeah, so didn't care because ... he just ... it's not the same. I missed Giles and the fact that he wasn't so rude to me, but I knew that was ... I don't know, selfish? Maybe I should give Mr. Pryce a try, but it's just hard. I didn't want to get close to anyone again besides the friends that I already had. What if something happened to him? Or me? Or something, I didn't know, but I didn't want that attatchment. Ever. Again. |
"Buffy, Xander's here!" I heard my mom say and I rolled off the bed and stood up. Tonight was the night that we were breaking into the Mayor's office and of course, Mr. Pryce didn't know, and it was better that he didn't because then I'd have to hear him lecturing me the whole time.
"Alright, I'm coming," I told her and grabbed my jacket and a few stakes. Xander had everything else we needed from his garage so pretty much? This was going to be smooth. Hopefully.
Walking down the stairs, I saw him waiting in the living room with my mom.
"Buffy, your mom baked cookies, you know I'm a sucker for something sweet. Well, anything moist and --"
Grabbing Xander's arm, I gave a smile to my mom. "We're going now, I won't be out late," I told her and headed out the door.
It didn't take us long to get there and we pretty much just talked about school because the topics that we used to talk about aren't ... alive anymore, so we stay away from those. I could tell then though, that Xander didn't really like Angel. I didn't know why and I guess I'll never know, but I never asked and I won't.
Looking up at the building, I noticed some people walking out and some people in the actual office. "Up there," I said and pointed up at a window with a shadowy figure. "That's him."
"And how do you know the outline of our beloved Mayor, Miss Summers?" He asked with a grin, but I just rolled my eyes. "I had Willow look him up and I saw a bunch of pictures and blah blah," I mumbled and grabbed Xander's arm again, pulling him into an alley.
"Now it's time we wait a bit and make sure everyone that's not supposed to be in there, isn't," I said and stood there for a second before feeling something coming up behind us. Vampire. Great.
Grabbing onto my stake in my pocket, I pulled it out slowly.
"What are you doing out here?" I heard and turned around. A vampire in a suit. How ... professional?
"You know, just hanging out ... outside of a building ... talking ... about school," I said and shrugged. "Eventual, right?"
Wait ... he's not going to try to eat me? Was I not eatable? He's not even ... trying! But, he was in a suit ...
"You two should come with me," he said and I gave him a look. "Where?"
"Down here," He pointed down the alley.
"Right, cause I'm that stupid," I said and pulled out the stake, sinking it into his heart. He exploded into dust and I sighed, "Now, I think I would have gone if he was offering candy."
