The next morning when Giles woke up there was a delivery waiting for him, from London containing the last of the contents from the old council vaults. He signed for them. And began to sort through the contents stopping suddenly when at the bottom he found an envelope yellowed with age which had "Scooby's" written on it.
He picked it up and carried it to the school where he met Willow, Dawn and Faith and the three sat down to open the letter, he read out loud so that they would all know what Buffy had written.
I know you've probably guessed from the fact that I'm writing this letter that the spell worked. I'm in the good old 1800's and I'm a married (rich) woman now. You would not believe the amount of clothes I have to ware each day, especially under my dresses! I'm sure Giles is blushing as he reads this but Wills, Faith honestly count yourself luck and never ever complain bout your underwear again ok? Thankfully we don't have company that often so I normally walk round the house in a pair of Spike's trousers.
We're in the house now, you know the one you guys are living in, it's weird I keep walking into a room and remembering what it's like.... What it will be like when you guys live there. I miss you all so much, thank you so much for doing this for me I know somehow I'll see you again. I'm happy now truly I am. When I saw Spike after I realised the spell had worked I fell into his arms and told him how much I loved him, it was like coming home. We were married three weeks later on the 26th of January and I don't think I've spent more than a minute away from him since that time. We still argue but it's different now, I'm different now and I know that I made the right choice to come back here. I can't really imagine my life without him.
I've had five children so far, Boy lets just say a big Hallelujah for Slayer healing else there wouldn't have been more than one, let me just Say "Oww" and tell Faith that doing light stretches during the beginning really takes the edge of the pain.
I've got four girls and my baby boy. The eldest is Charlotte she's sixteen now, then Iris who's fourteen, Mary thirteen and Anya who's three. And my baby boy we called William. I'm expecting twins this fall. If they're girls we're going to call them Willow Faith and Tara Dawn if their boys Liam Rupert and Alexander Timothy. I'm not sure if I'll have any more after these two are born but I'd not rule it out as a possibility, maybe one more to make it even?
Dawn, I love you so much and even though I'm not there any more it doesn't mean that I don't care about you, I've set up a bank account for you the account numbers and everything are in the smaller envelope, it's just my way of providing for you and to make sure you have a good life.
Willow words can't describe what you mean to me, I wish you every happiness possible with Paige you two were made for each other and I know that the your both going to be so happy together. I know that we're going to meet each other some day, I'll be waiting for you and remember carpe diem. I want you to have the silver cross Angel gave me when I got to Sunnydale. Please wear it and think of me.
Faith, you've grown to mean so much to me over the two and half years we spent together after Sunnydale was destroyed. You're an amazing slayer but I think you're going to be an even better mom, watch out for the other slayers they need you, your strength wisdom and screw ups. If you don't help them then what's to stop them from making the same mistakes as you did? Say hi to Tim and Emma for me. See you soon.
Giles, we've had a problem's in the past, but that's what they are. They're in the past. You are the best father I ever had and I know that you and Maya Lin are going to be very happy together for a long time to come. Give Amber a hug from me and tell her aunty Buffy said hey and give her Mr Gordo she's basically his adoptive mother any way. You're the man who I've always thought of as 'Dad' ever since I met you. I'll see you soon Dad.
Say Hi to all the girls for me and wish time good look in their training and Lives.
I should go now, I love you all, Have good lives and like I've said so many times in this letter, I'll be seeing you
I love all of you
1 Year Later
Willow, Paige, Faith and Giles all walked up the hill to where the two graves stood,
William "Spike" Owens Died age 93 November 1911 And
Buffy Anne Owens Nee Summers Died age 86 October 1911
Beloved Parents, Loving People who were unable to live apart. Joined for an eternity of peace.
Willow and Paige were holding hands, they had just returned from their honeymoon in Las Vegas, Faith was holding her young daughter Emma in her arms and Giles was just standing thinking of his family those who were present, those who were waiting back at the school and those who were gone. The small group smiled amongst themselves as they looked at the graves, each taking a moment to bend down and trace the names inscribed on them and sparing a moment to think of the person the name belonged to. When they had all done this they stood back, and Giles placed a bouquet of white lilies on the graves before the group began walking away each of them thinking
"I'll see you soon."
Before walking back down the hill to the school, which was their home.
A/N I'd like to thank everyone who has read and reviewed this story, especially:
JaneAlso, to answer Stacy75 question about the last chapter, Anya is dead. The cave of Passion's is sort of an alternative universe. It's a place, which D'Hoffryn created for her as a reward for her service as a vengeance demon. With regards to Chastity and Craig, I don't know if it had been 4months or what, it just seemed like a good idea because that was the thing Xander had always craved, to have a family. When he lost Anya he'd thought that he'd lost that. So when he found her again I wanted to show him not only going home but also finding peace if you get me. Craig and Chastity aren't dead in my mind, but they're not alive either. They'll grow up but they won't have normal lives, maybe they'll work for D'Hoffryn or something lol. I hope that clears it up for you.
