Clark was getting a rare moment of peace. Asleep in his bed without blue K until his door was kicked in by Faith. The slayer ran into the room fire extinguisher in hand and aimed at the ceiling. Clark just looked up and noticed he had lit his ceiling on fire and burned in a message. Clark super breathed it and the flames went out instantly.
Faith sighed this was one hell of a way to start a morning. "Clark you might be fireproof pal but the rest of us sure as hell aren't. Mind taking a reprieve from starting fires in the morning."
Clark just nodded as he looked at the ceiling why did he write that? He looked down and quickly got his answer. He didn't. Jor El did. Clark being the brilliant genius that he is dozed off last night with the key still in his hand. Jor El took control of sleeping Clark and burned a warning into the ceiling.
Jonathon and Martha rushed into the room nowhere near the speed of a slayer but pretty quick considering the smell.
Jonathon looked up at the symbols. "What does it say Clark?"
Clark was looking up at the symbols just reading the last of it. "It's a warning."
Martha looked at it. They're going to need paint. "What does it say Clark?"
"Kal El embrace your destiny before the sky burns."
In Smallville Chloe was looking over the wall of weird. Her life work in high school also undoubtedly the one thing that pushed Clark further away than anything. Chloe sighed taking down the story where Clark discovered the cave. She would have kept his secret why didn't he just tell her. Lois came in and saw the look on her cousin's face.
"So cuz, when you asked me about secrets when we first found you I assume you meant Smallville's."
Chloe just nodded. "I caught him flying a couple days before you came to get me."
Lois is still trying to wrap her head around it. "I still can't get there. I mean Clark is annoying farmboy that is a master at pushing my buttons not ET."
Chloe just looked at her. "You're not going to bring in the General are you?"
Lois shakes her head. "No, I think Smallville did more to the T-1000 then he let on and considering Fonzie Clark asked me to dinner for the two of you last night I think it's a safe bet to say he saved me again. You don't stab someone in the back when they pull you out of the fire."
Chloe just smiled relieved. Lois saw it and was hurt more than anything. "Chloe I've been in Smallville long enough to realize it's not just another small hick town. And I'm willing to bet that Clark has saved more than his share of people here. He's a hero I'd never do anything like that to him."
"I'm sorry I thought you would." Chloe answered ashamed.
Lois just nodded. "I forgive you I know how much you care for the guy. I just don't know how to treat him now."
Chloe shrugged. "Just treat him like Clark."
There was a breeze of wind and Clark was in the room. "Still talking about me huh."
Chloe smiled. "Actually we just finished."
Clark just nodded. "So who's going to Sunnydale first?"
Chloe just pointed at Lois. "She is."
Lois' jaw dropped. "What me?"
Chloe just smiled seeing Lois' face definitely worth it. "Yeah give you and Clark a chance to catch up."
Clark just smiled. "I don't know with how much she talks she might swallow a bug."
Lois rolled her eyes not amused seeing Clark is joking with her. "Oh please I'm just worried that if Clark spots Lana he'll make a sudden stop and I'll go flying trough the air then crash and burn."
Clark smiled. "Hey every Smallville boy crushed on Lana at some point I just followed the trend and grew out of it."
Clark picked up Lois and the two disappeared in a blur. They stopped at Clark's house in Sunnydale in front of Faith and Krypto whom the slayer was holding back.
"You still with us Lo."
Lois put her hands up. "Yeah, I just left my stomach in Kansas." Another couple seconds Clark comes back with Chloe. "Not even sick that is so not fair."
Clark just sat there as Lois and Chloe got the third degree from Jonathon and Martha. All things considered they took the lecture pretty well. They're journalists and Lois has trained herself to hide things from 3 star generals while Chloe has learned a lot the hard way thanks to Lionel Luthor. It's the other talk Clark is more interested in seeing how that one goes.
Giles is waiting at the food court in private. They hate him it's the only reason he can think of for why they would have the meeting here. Willow and Oz show up first followed by Buffy. Angel wasn't coming because he doesn't exactly do lunch. Willow got a hold of Xander and Cordy but they chose not to come.
Giles sees Clark and Faith coming with the girls. "Dear lord we really are having the conversation right here aren't we?"
Buffy just looks at him. "We're not that clueless. We just thought it would be a good idea to make sure we don't tell them on an empty stomach."
Chloe just turned to Clark. "I knew it. I knew they know too."
Clark just nodded. "They saw me use my powers wouldn't let it go until I explained."
"Clark has trust issues. Not that any of us are normal." Faith quipped.
Chloe looked at him. "You're telling me everything."
"After lunch" Clark insisted.
The group has lunch and has what qualified as a friendly conversation. Clark asked Chloe about college and she said she was undecided. Lois just smirked to hold the laugh in. It should not be this hard to tell Clark where she's going. After lunch they all headed off to Giles' apartment. They sat down waiting for the questions from the reporters.
Lois asked the obvious one first. "So what was with leather Clark from last night?"
Clark sighed knowing it was crunch time. "That was actually a vampire. Me as a vampire."
Lois looked at him. "Yeah you as a vampire. It can't be you as a vampire because you showed up and kicked the crap out of him and oh yeah vampires aren't real."
Chloe just looked at her cousin. She'll never forget Kal's game face. Those yellow eyes along with the fangs. "It was Clark, just talking to him I could tell but it wasn't at the same time. You want to explain that one."
Clark just smiled nervously. "I think Willow might be better off explaining that one."
Chloe turned to the redhead. "What do you have to do with this?"
Willow shrugged she actually sees a lot of herself in Chloe. "I'm a witch with magical powers which I used poorly yesterday."
Lois looked at the group not even sure what to say. "Witch huh; maybe you guys should start from the beginning."
The scoobies sigh as Giles goes into the usual watcher lesson he gave Xander and Willow when they first learned the truth about vampires. Clark just thinks to himself that they're taking it pretty well. Though of course they just found out aliens are real so what's the big deal about demons?
Lois just pulled herself together this is a lot to take in. "OK so all the things little kids have nightmares about is real. That still doesn't explain the double vision Smallville from last night."
Clark went on to explain the other world and how bad things were. The scoobies were shocked right there along with Lois and Chloe. Most of them are wondering how he stayed sane.
Chloe had the opposite reaction she smiled. "So in that world I was a vampire. Was I a badass vampire?"
Clark sighed. "Yes you tortured me, stabbed me, and killed Buffy."
Buffy shot up refusing to believe it. "How did I get done in by a vampire Nancy Drew?" She turns to Chloe. "No offense."
Clark just rubbed his head. "Wesley was your only watcher."
Lois and Chloe stood confused as that seemed to explain everything to Buffy.
Lois on the other hand was thinking back to their overnight in Sunnydale. She met Edward a cute guy but when she introduced him to Clark and Faith he disappeared. "Holy crap I hooked up with a vampire didn't I?"
Faith smiled and nodded. "You broke Xander's record that wasn't exactly an easy feat."
"Thanks for getting rid of it. And stop making fun of me anyone can fall for a vampire."
Buffy just quietly nodded at the in joke. She also remembers that the slayers got Clark and Angel to try the double date again. Hopefully no ones powers will screw up this time and even if they did it's a much simpler trip to the movies.
Lois stayed with the scoobies while Chloe gave Giles the third degree trying to find out about demons and all the sorts. Lois rolls her eyes. Smallville is a thick skinned alien Buffy and Faith are apparently Supergirls born specifically to deal with demons. Please tell me she is not still thinking of moving here in the fall.
Clark looked at Lois saw the she's lost in thought. "Lois are you OK with this?"
Lois nodded she is OK with it kind of amazed the things Clark is capable of. Though it explains last night she'd never check out farmer Smallville but this Clark was different there was no other explanation she'd find Clark Kent attractive. "I'm fine Smallville and I see you found a place for yourself here."
Clark shrugged. "I like it here. I'm always making a difference and it's a relief to have friends I can just be myself with no fear of rejection."
Lois smiled. "We'll you've got 2 more now."
Clark nodded thankful for it. "Thank you"
Lois was relieved to see it in his face he trusts her. But right now she needs a favor. "Clark can you talk to Chloe."
"About what?" Clark asked.
Lois wondered where to begin. "Chloe had an interview lined up for the Daily Planet it was surprising actually."
Clark put his hand to his heart. "My god you mean Chloe was panning to become an investigative reporter. I had no idea."
Lois punched him in the arm. "You're still not funny Smallville no matter what star you fell from. She didn't get it."
Clark was confused. "Why not Chloe's articles are better than what most other people write."
Lois nodded in complete agreement. "I'm right there with you 100% but whatever happened the interview didn't last long and she didn't get the job. Me and Lana tried to talk to her about it but she shut down. Maybe you will have better luck."
Clark just nodded. "I'll talk to her but don't expect anything."
Lois shrugged realizing even with all his powers it was all he could do. "So X-ray vision you ever take a chance to see all of me?"
Clark sighed. "Here we go."
In Chicago a blond girl was running through the streets. She ran up to an apartment building and repeatedly banged on the door. "Mr. please, help me! Please!"
The door opened and a dark skinned bald man with a black goatee opened the door and the blond haired girl ran right in.
The man just looked at her. "You just can't run right into someone's house."
The blond girl was starting to calm down but catching her breath. "I'm sorry...it's just m-my boyfriend was missing for a couple days and I got a call from him telling me to meet him at the abandoned factory at 2nd and market. I went there and talked to him but his face transformed it was the most horrible thing I ever saw. Yellow eyes and his teeth I don't understand what happened."
The man was listening realizing he has work to do. "So what's your name?"
"Alicia, Alicia Baker"
"Well Alicia my name is Robin Wood and I need you to stay here while I set your boyfriend straight OK there's cable TV and there's food in the fridge."
Alicia watched him leave. He really sucks at stealth she saw him pocket some stakes and knives. Once he's out of sight Alicia starts ransacking the place in search of what she was sent here for. She guts the furniture and destroys the living room trying to find it. She doesn't know why they mayor wants it he just said it would help with what's coming up.
Lois was spending time with Buffy, Faith, Giles, Oz and Willow getting the lay of Sunnydale. This left Clark alone to have that talk with Chloe. Clark walks to her wondering what to say they exchanged stories over the phone but he realizes they never really opened up about their lives. Well no time like the present to try to set this right.
Chloe can see the awkward look on his face. "So what does Lois want you to talk to me about?"
"That obvious huh." Clark asked. "Lois told me about your interview at the Daily Planet."
"Clark for someone that keeps secrets you have no problem digging into other peoples."
Clark just looked at her. "I didn't dig. Lois just asked me to talk to you about it she's concerned about you apparently the interview didn't go well."
"There wasn't an interview." Chloe admitted.
Clark just looked at her. "Chloe you wanted to be a reporter since the moment I met you. Why would you not apply for an interview with the Daily Planet?"
Chloe just frowned. "That's the thing Clark I did."
"What Happened?" Clark asked genuinely confused.
Chloe sighed if he blames himself she will not be held responsible for her actions. "I wrote for the Daily Planet a couple years ago remember."
Clark nodded. He remembered and he wasn't exactly happy with how she got it. "The column Lionel helped you get."
"The column Lionel strong armed the editor into giving me." Chloe corrected him. "You weren't the only one who had a problem with it. The current editor wasn't a fan either. She sat me down and told me in no uncertain terms that now that Lionel is dead they were going to wash his stink off the paper for good and that includes any of his little flunkies."
Clark sighed she lost her shot at the Daily Planet. "You know you'd figure Lionel trying to kill you would be worth something."
Chloe just laughed at the dark humor. "Apparently not and when did you gain a dark sense of humor?"
Clark just shrugged. "Must be a part of Sunnydale, so what are you going to do in the fall?"
Chloe just smiled not yet. "I'm still weighing my options."
Clark can tell she already has. "Chloe?"
Chloe puts her head down. "I start UC Sunnydale in the fall."
Clark put his hands to his head. OK don't be angry. "Chloe there are safer schools out there. There are safer prisons honestly."
Chloe just gives Clark a stare that just says my choice. "I've made up my mind Clark I'm going here, Demons and all."
Clark collected himself and calmed down. "Fine but you will get your own place no hotel rooms."
"Never under any circumstances do you invite someone in you just open the door and step away."
"And you will wear a cross or keep a cross on you at all times."
"You got anything else you want to say dad?"
Clark smiled he knows he can't stop her but she will take care of herself. "Yeah it will be nice having you here in the fall."
Alicia had gone through his house and finally found the little box that she was sent for. She got up to leave and saw a bloody Robin waiting for her at the doorway. "So considering there were 8 vampires there instead of one. I think it's safe to say that this was a trap."
Alicia just put the box in her pocket. "I knew you could handle it just needed enough time to get what I came here for."
Robin saw what Alicia has. It was his mother's. It's kind of a slayer emergency box. "You're not leaving here with it."
Alicia rolled her eyes. "Pretty sure I am." Alicia went to teleport out but Robin tackled her to the floor in a rage. It was bad enough that he couldn't find the vampire that killed his mother. Alicia and Wood disappeared in a green haze and reappeared in city hall. Robin had no idea where they were but heard an older man chuckle. Alicia took advantage of the situation pulled out a tazer and shocked Robin getting him off her and back to her feet.
The mayor looked down at Alicia. "Now Alicia what did I tell you about bringing work home with you."
Alicia held her head down. "Sorry boss he got the jump on me and I wasn't much of a fighter."
The mayor just smiled. "Don't worry about it. Besides it gives the boys something to eat."
Two vampires come in and take the dazed Wood away. Alicia just swallows hard she can't believe she did that but he attacked her first and she retaliated. "So what was so important about this box?"
The mayor just smiled as he started to explain. "That box is going to help with you not being much of a fighter."
Alicia just looked at it. "How is this little thing supposed to help me?"
The mayor puts his hands down over the box to keep the young teleporter from opening it. "Wait for our guest young lady."
A mage enters the room and starts chanting. Alicia finds herself pinned down and can't move as the box is opened and living shadows enter her mouth. The mage keeps chanting and Alicia's eyes glow green for a second as she falls to the floor. The mayor throws a stake at the floor and waits for her to recover.
Alicia gets to her feet causing the Mayor to smile. Alicia just looked at him. "What exactly did you do to me?"
The mayor just chuckled as the mage left. "You'll see it's a surprise."
Alicia has the feeling she's not going to like this surprise and she's right when the Mayor calls in a vampire and tells him to bite her. Alicia acts quickly and throws a spinning back fist amazing even her. The vampire stumbles back and Alicia quickly throws a roundhouse kick causing the vampire to soften the crash with his hands so he doesn't fall flat on his face to the floor. Alicia then grabs the vampire and throws him over the table with relative ease. She grabs the stake and goes to finish him off but the Mayor puts his hands on her shoulders to stop her. "That's enough."
Alicia just looked to the mayor. "How did I do that?"
The mayor smiled as the vampire walked away sore. "Ends up you were one of the chosen a potential?"
Alicia just looked at him even more confused. "What's a potential?"
The mayor smiled. "A potential slayer like Buffy and Faith once were. Ordinarily the watchers would have come for you but you young lady are a special one you slipped through the cracks. Likely because of your life in the lead room."
Alicia smirked. "Chalk one up for deadbeat parents. So what exactly did you do to me?"
The mayor smiled. "I jumped the gun and activated your powers you young lady are now 100% genuine slayer."
Alicia smiled as an idea comes to her mind. "Does that mean I can beat up Faith?"
They mayor is ecstatic seeing the excitement in Alicia's eyes. "You might I also had the mage give your mind some martial arts upgrades. But as for now play your part and wait for the opportune moment to take what you want young lady."
Clark had the two girls back in Smallville by dinner time. "So are you two OK with this."
Lois nodded seeing why Clark kept it secret all this time he's so afraid of rejection. "I'm fine Smallville I swear I'll keep your secret."
Chloe nodded in agreement. "Same here Clark as long as I live I'll never betray your secret."
Clark just nodded in gratitude wondering how he was so lucky to get wonderful friends. "Thank you so I'm heading back to Sunnydale call if you need anything."
"See ya later Smallville"
Lois looked at Chloe and saw the intrepid blond with a smile. "No, no, no, tell me you are not still thinking of going to UC Sunnydale in the fall."
Chloe tried to say anything about it. "Yes Lois I am."
Lois rolled her eyes this better not be about Clark. "Look Smallville is a great guy but how many anvils are you going to let him drop on you? I mean there's other schools where garlic doesn't have to be used like mace."
Chloe put her hands up. "I'm not. As a matter after why I learned that thing came after me last night I have officially dropped anything I might have for Clark."
Lois was shocked she was happy about it. "Why the sudden drop from crush to friend zone?"
Chloe smiled. "Listening about the me of that other world how she gave up her soul and how that thing knew exactly how to play me and if Clark didn't show when he did I think I might have let him bite me."
Lois just smiled her little cuz is growing up. "So what did you learn?"
"That Clark is my Lana and has too much control over me." The words struck Chloe as she said them. "Dear god Clark is my Lana."
Lois smiled. "Well look at the bright side cuz maybe you'll meet a new farm boy to make your own in Sunnydale."
Chloe smirked two can play this one. "Yeah how about you Lois are you going to find that billionaire of yours or just settle on radio disc jockey?"
Actually Lois has already decided on journalism. Smallville is the ultimate hick town but she liked getting to the bottom of things here. And writing those articles gave her a sense of pride and comfort even if it does take 30 minutes to do a spell check. Chloe will not find out until next spring though because Lois firmly believes that her cousin does not need the ego trip. Now however she just doesn't know where to go to college.
That night in Sunnydale Buffy, Faith, Clark and Angel walk out of the theater among a midst of movie goers. Faith just smiled seeing she managed to get Clark to calm down after a certain trailer. Buffy wasn't sure what to say so just started with an uncertain.
"Well" Angel said in confusion.
Clark just added his two cents. "Next time someone else picks the movie."
Faith punched him in the arm. "You loved it and you know it."
Buffy looked Clark over. "You have calmed down a lot since you saw that trailer."
Angel didn't see what Clark was so upset about. "I'm not a fan of Johnny Cage either but that Al…" Angel's thoughts were cut off by a stiff elbow to the ribs from Buffy.
Buffy aired her thoughts on the movie. "Wasn't what I expected with the title I thought it would be about food?"
"Well there was food?" Angel pointed out.
Faith looked at them. "Wait there was actually food where was I at that part?"
Buffy smirked jealous of her that she could have that. "On Clark's lap." She turns to Angel. "So hot chocolate…cold shower"
Angel just sighed this was a failure. "I'm sorry. I wanted to take you out somewhere fun. It's been a long time since I've been to the movies. They changed."
Buffy nodded. "A little scary…and a little not, which is also scary. I'm sorry. I just, I don't like getting you worked up like that. We can't actually do any of those things. You'd lose your soul. Besides, I don't even own a kimono."
Angel just smirked at Buffy's concern. "You don't have to worry about me."
Buffy just shrugged. "Just don't like to rub your nose in it…Suddenly wondering
where that expression comes from."
Angel shot her a smile. "Look, I don't need to see movies to get worked up. Just being
around you does that just fine. Doesn't mean that I'm gonna lose control, that I'm going to be frustrated around you. It feels nice, just to feel."
Buffy looked at him a little hurt. "It doesn't drive you crazy, when we're close?"
Angel just holds her. "Watch this." He gives her a long kiss. "See? Safe as houses." They kiss some more.
Faith rolls her eyes and turns to Clark both knowing its time to go to work. Clark sighs as he stops listening to Faith's heartbeats and listens for random noise. It doesn't take long for screams to start. "Group of demons at a church."
Faith turns to Buffy and Angel. "OK lust bunnies we're going to go patrol don't do anything…I usually do."
Clark is throwing Fyarl demons around like rag dolls while Faith is holding off just one. Clark knocks his four out and realizes what they need. "I'll be right back." In a blur he was gone.
Faith let out a grunt which was her way of saying OK as she's a little busy right now. Clark comes back with a silver knife which he throws to Faith as the other 4 Fyarl demons get up. Clark runs over and loud sounds are heard as bones break and they're all laid out on the floor. Faith stabs hers right in the heart and threw the knife to Clark who did the same and burned the bodies to ashes.
Faith sighed. "Well that was fun."
Clark rolled his eyes at her. "That was a lot of words fun would not be one of them."
Faith smiled at him. "We're alive they're not what would you call it?"
Clark shrugged. "I don't know but getting covered in paralyzing mucus and supershaking it off not exactly what I would call fun."
Faith just shrugged. "Well I know a way to take the edge off." She wraps her arms around Clark's neck and buries his lips in hers. "You up for it?"
Clark just picked her up bridal style ready to carry her back to their home. "Always"
An idea came to Faith. "You think a store near here sells kimonos."
Faith woke up from Clark's bed that was great as always but the Kent's will be checking on them soon enough when they get home. Faith got her bra and shirt on. She was pulling her underwear back up when she 'gracefully' fell back onto the bed. She got up and heard Clark mutter the three words she never wants to hear. "I love you."
Clark muttered the words in his sleep and Faith heard him. Faith instantly shook him awake. Clark came to. "What's going on?"
Faith looked at him. "Did you just say you loved me?"
Clark probably did he was having a very nice dream which was a continuation of what they were doing. "Probably why?"
Faith smiled she knows the truth. "Clark you're an incredible guy but you don't love me."
Clark just looked at her. "I don't exactly do this with every girl I know just you."
Faith climbed back on the bed and straddled him. "This is just screwing right now…good screwing but still screwing. You don't love me but it means something for you to think that you do."
"Oh really so why don't I love you?" Clark asked not letting this drop.
"Because you don't trust me." Faith answered honestly.
Clark was taken back. "Faith I trust you with everything and my life."
"But not enough to make my own decisions." Faith countered. "It hurt when you didn't trust me to help you with your vampire double and how you keep using this." She fiddles with the cross around his neck taking it off and putting it in a lead box. "You don't trust me and you don't even trust yourself."
Clark just held her close. "Faith I trust you with my life and I actually got much better with the heat vision as the movie showed but I can still rip your arms off if I lose control."
Faith looked at him he's so innocent at this it's almost funny. "It's a load of crap you know."
"What is?" Clark asked curious.
"The whole myth about two people finding each other and losing themselves in wild abandonment, sex is about control, if not it leads to quickies which I was never fan of."
Clark just looks at her. "Is that right?"
Faith just nods as she straddles him and moves her hips. Clark just groans. "Did you enjoy that remember I can tell when you lie farmboy."
"Yes" Clark answered.
Faith smiled. "Good now I know you're afraid of losing control but believe me there's a big difference between losing yourself in the moment and losing control. I'd love to go deeper into it but your parents will be home any minute." Faith leaves for her own room before the Kents get home and start looking.
In the library. Buffy, Xander, Cordy, Alicia and Willow sit at the table. Wesley stands by it. Giles stands in the door of his office. Clark and Faith enter hearing a bit they're talking about the Ascension. More specifically the books of Ascension which Buffy and Angel were offered last night for the price of $5,000.
Wesley was amused. "And you say this demon wanted cash? That's very unusual."
Giles looks appalled. "Demons after money. Whatever happened to the still beating heart of a virgin? No one has any standards anymore."
Clark rolls his eyes this isn't exactly how you should start a morning he thinks to himself as he leans against the book cage.
Buffy looked at everyone. "Well, he said the books were worth the price."
Xander looks at everyone. "What's this Ascension mean?"
Clark shrugged. "Not really sure I asked Giles 2 weeks ago but he hasn't come back with anything yet."
Everyone turns to Giles as he stutters out. "I'm not sure."
Wesley shrugged reaching the same agreement. "No, not really a common term in demonology."
Willow shot up. "Ooh ooh! The Marenschadt Text. I think in the section on genocide, they mention Ascension."
Buffy smirked. "Well, we have a winner."
Xander pointed at the watchers. "And, more importantly, two losers."
Giles looked at her. "Where did you find that volume?"
Willow looked down at her feet. "In the top of your book cabinet with the stuff you try to
Giles disappears into his office to get the book.
Faith turned to Clark. "You read everything here. How come you don't know that?"
Clark shrugged. "I always considered the books in his office private. Although after Buffy's birthday I should probably start reading them."
"Hidden? Are there any engravings I should know about? Uh, frolicking nymphs of some kind?" Xander asked.
Cordelia rolled her eyes. "Noticing your focus point Xander."
Faith caught on noticing the little bit of anger in Cordy's voice she knows what they got up to yesterday.
Willow shakes her head. "No. Just magic secrets Giles doesn't think I'm ready for."
Giles returns with the book skimming for the information Willow supplied. "Ah, yes, yes, here we are. There's a reference here to the journal of Desmond Kane, pastor of a town called Sharpsville. 'May 26, 1723. Tomorrow is the Ascension. God help us all.' it was the last anyone heard."
"Of Kane?" Wes asked hopefully.
Giles rolled his eyes he's starting to see Clark's logic. "Of Sharpsville. The town more or less disappeared."
Buffy stared at him. "So Ascension possibly not a love-in."
Giles nodded he should have known the hellmouth would leave them with a big finale. "I think you should meet with this demon, Buffy."
Buffy felt the urge to slap him. "Yeah? Anybody got five thousand dollars?"
Alicia looked at the scene this was bad. They could use those books to find out about the mayor which would mess up his plan along with hers. The time has come she'll get the red meteor rock necklace and use it on Clark today. She'll tell the mayor of the books and cut off the demon from the slayers then she'll have the mayor happy and Clark where he belongs.
Thanks for the reviews.
Would anyone really miss Robin?
Up Next: Red K Clark is unleashed on the scoobies.
