Ep. 1 Moira
Xander Harris drove his new Mustang convertible down the open highway away
from Sunnydale, away from his life. He had suffered many hardships the past
year. All of his friends had. Willow had lost Tara and inspite of it tried
to destroy the world. Buffy was pulled from heaven and in her time of
confusion slept (or was raped if you think technically) with Spike. Anya
his fiance had her heartbroken when ,Xander himself, left her at the alter.
Things were looking up now though. Willow was on her way to recovery with
the help of Giles. Buffy had gotten out of her depressed and confused
mindscape to help her best friend kick the magic habit as well as the guilt
of murder. Anya, well she had moved on to better things. Mostly her work.
She was a vengence demon once again.
"Damn, my life sucks." Xander said barely hearing himself above the music
blasting from the speakers. He saw the hitchhiker up the road and noticed
how darkness was beginning to descend. Xander sighed. He couldn't leave
anyone out in the middle of nowhere when there were vamps and demons
around. He slowed the sports car down as he reached the man and lowered his
"Need a ride?" Xander asked as he looked over the young man beside his car.
About 6'1" good health, short hair, and black cloths.
"Yes. Thank you." The man said in a slightly forced sounding english
tongue. Xander only shrugged and opened the door.
"Names Xander. What's yours?" Xander said as the man sat in the passenger
seat and closed the door. The young man smiled slightly.
"Groosalugg, but for somereason everyone calls me Groo." Xander chuckled
slightly as he shook the mans hand and then put the Mustang in gear.
"Nice to meet you Groo." Xander said as he pushed in the accelerator.
"So. Where you headed?"
The duo rode in a comfortable silence for most of the ride. It was right
outside the town of Santa Carla the two finally began to talk. Why? Xander
couldn't handle the silence.
"So what do you do for a living?" Xander asked as he turned down the radio
and looked at his traveling companion questionably. Groo looked at him and
smiled a naive and well idiotic smile.
"I kill things." Xander looked at him for a second before turning his eyes
back to the road.
"That is NOT something you want to tell the guy who gives you a ride."
Xander whispered to himself while looking out the window. He wanted to ask
something else but decided against it. For a little while anyway. He was in
deep thought about his passneger when the young girl ran across the highway
with five men behind her. Her screams were heard in the car as she
dissappeared into the alleys beside the road. The car was stopped and both
men were out before any thought passed in there minds. Xander was the first
to reach mouth of the alley he was the first to see the five vamps gathered
around a young woman being held against the cold brick of the wall. And he
was the one to act first. He ran as fast as he possibly could and flying
tackled the vamps caused three of the five to fall with him in a pile of
twisted limbs. Xander spun as he landed and extended his right arm shoving
the stake in his hand into a vampires chest. Dust. Xander rolled to his
feet quickly and searched the alley with his eyes. Groo was fighting off
two vamps by the girl and he had two of his own trying to box him in from
the sides. As the one on his right charged Xander stepped forward out of
his path and spun right at the same time extending his right arm. Dust. The
final one wrapped his arms around Xander from behind and squeezed tightly.
Xander slammed the back of his head into the vamps face and was rewarded
with a crunch and the vamps hold to lessen slightly. He brought his right
heel down full force on the vamps kneecap causing it to drop him and scream
in pain. Xander felt a small smile come to his face before slamming his
stake home. He quickly turned to see Groo fighting off his two vamps well
but not finishing the job. He didn't have a stake.
"Groo!" Xander yelled even as he tossed the stake. He didn't watch as
Groosalugg dusted the two vampires he was already beside the young girl
cowering against the alley wall.
"Are you okay?" Xander asked as the girl shook uncontrollably. Finally the
girl looked up and took a deep breath..
"They....They took my friend....Allie. Oh god... They took Allie." The girl
began crying uncontrollably. Xander and Groo looked at one another. Finally
Xander uttered the word that summed up the situation.
Xander sat on the hood of his car with his head in his hands.
"Does this crap follow me around?" He asked himself outloud causing Groo to
look at him in curiosity.
"I would not know. After all I just met you." Groo answered the rhetorical
question with a serious expression. Xander looked at him strangly before
shaking his head and standing up.
"And who or better yet WHAT the hell are you?" Xander asked as he walked
menacingly toward the Groosalugg. Groo didn't seem to notice the hostile
act and simply answered his new friend.
"I am Groosalugg of Pylea. I came to this dimension when I was forced from
my throne." Groo answered in seriousness that made Xander believe him. It
also made Xander sick to his stomach.
"Why me?" Xander asked the sky then held up his hand to stop Groo from
"Rhetorical question." Xander said quickly. He didn't notice the confused
look on Groo's face. Xander sighed and looked toward the backseat of his
"She awake yet?" Xander asked Groo before moving toward the back of the car
himself. Groo only nodded his head in the positive. Xander smiled slightly
at the still frightened young woman. She had brown hair and green eyes. She
was around 5'5" and seemed to about twenty years of age.
"What's your name?" Xander asked kindly the small smile still on his face
as he leaned against his car. The girl looked at him in relief before
"Cassandra." Xander smiled a little more at the young woman and held out
"I'm Xander. Nice to meet you Cassie." Cassie shook Xanders' hand slowly.
She didn't want to let go but Xander pulled away gently.
"Do you have any idea where they took your friend?" Xander asked as he puts
his hand on the girls shoulder. She doesn't flinch away only shakes her
head no. Xander sighs and thinks about what he should do. Finally he looks
back at Cassie.
"Is there anywhere I can take you while I look for your friend?" Xander ask
gently his small smile still in place.
"We. While we look for your friend." Groo said gently as he walked slowly
to Xander's side. Xander stayes silent not wanting to cause a seen in front
of the still shocked Cassie.
"I have an apartment about three blocks from here. On the corner of Fifth
and Elm." Xander nodded and looked at Groo.
Xander opened the apartment door and watched as Groo led Cassie inside.
Xander stayed outside causing Groo to stop and look at him expectantly,
Cassie kept walking into her apartment.
"Are you coming in?" Groo asked with a look of confusion. Xander shook his
"I'm going to look for her friend, Allie. You need to stay here. I have a
feeling that IF Allie is alive they need Cassie as well." Groo grudganly
nodded his head and moved into the apartment.
"I will protect her with my life." The Groosalugg said as if saying an
oath. Xander nodded and shut the door as he turned down the hallway and
walked toward the darkness of the night.
Thats it people. What do you think? By the way NOT SLASH. Just a buddy fic.
