"Hey, how do you say, 'Wank off' in Italian?"
"What is it, princess. Lose your magic marble?"
"Right. The foulest evil that hell ever vomited forth."
"He was spotted in Rome near Buffy's-"
"Good. I'll go to Rome, get the capo, say hi to Buff, and then bring it back."
"I know you did not just try to boss me around, now did you?"
"It's about time you two sleepy heads woke up."
"He's gonna curse the day he ever crossed paths with Angelus."
"And William the Bloody."
"And, Annabelle the Poisoned Thorn."
"Thanks, a lot, Angelus, now I'm hungry."
"Spike, Lilith! Oh, mio dio!"
"Buffy and Dawn are letting me crash. My place was incinerated when that thing happened."
"Yeah. Jeez, William, your memory really is awful! Remember. about a year ago. Give or take a few days. Sunnydale gets incinerated. Any of this ringing any bells?"
"So, I have plans tonight but I can cancel, you know if you guys wanna hang. You should see Rome at night. Oh! I'll take you anywhere you wanna go, anything you wanna see."
"Angelus! You're back."
"Did he hurt you?"
"Not like him."
"Time for another pony ride?"
"The both of you?"
"He felt like sunshine."
"It's not like we were the only ones."
"That's why he had us tossed. So he could violate-"
"Violate our women!"
"Violate, in succession!"
"Punching idiotic little boys who can't do as their told."
"Let's go home."
Chapter 7 The Spell
Lilith walked through the halls of her house gathering candles, thoughts swirling around in her head.
"I have to know..." She kept on whispering as she picked up her laptop and scrolled through the Demons, Demons, Demons page before she grabbed an ancient textbook that she had taken from Wesley's office and flipping through the dusty pages.
Her eyes widened as she felt yet another translation that was of no help to her.
She narrowed her eyes before she allowed a grin to spread across her face before she picked up a pad of paper and started to scribble words down onto it. When she was done she quickly ripped the piece of paper off of the stapled spot attached to the pad of blank pages. he placed it down before she spent the next few hours translating it and writing it down.
She then gathered nine black candles and spread them around her on the floor before she lit them, picked up the two pieces of papers, sat down on the floor before she started to read from the paper, the latin dripping from her voice like lace.
"Oh, Dea de Lumine,
Largiaris mihi sapientiam tuam." She chanted as she ran her well manicured long black finger nails across the ancient pages of the book she was translating from, her latin not being the best in the world.
"Antiqua numina testor,
De caelum et terram.
Ad dirigendos me per meam rimanti,
Ad quærendum responsis,
Ad unspoken quaestionem." She picked up a daggers and carefully cut off a lock of hair from her head before she place part of it on one of the candles til it lit on fire and then placed it on the ancient text book.
Dico ex spatio et tempore,
a praeteritis et praesentibus.
Ad adjuvandum rege me.
Et impende super me reasurrance,
mei." She sliced the palm of her hand and allowed the blood to fall off of her hand and onto the pages of the ancient text.
Et impende super me,
Quid fuit olim." She yelled the last line as she slammed her hand down on the text to allow all the more blood the go onto the text book. Wind whirled around her and blue smoke swirled around out of the book and around her before it transferred to the area outside of the ring of candles and swirled around up and down.
Lilith blinked in confusion as she stood up to see nothing like she was expecting. She blinked a couple of times at the same time as the 5'4 girl in front of her as she looked up into her own navy blue eyes.

"What the fuck!? The spell wasn't supposed to do that!" Lilith ranted as she paced back and forth inside the circle of candles. "It was supposed to bring forth from the future my little decendent so why would it bring a different version of me!?"
"You think you got problems? Try having your creepy ass grandsire constantly hitting on you, then we'll talk about who's life sucks." The Lilith that had come through the time portal snapped.
"Been there done that." Lilith muttered. "And technically he's our great-grand-sire. Seeing as Spike sired us, Dru sired him, And Angel cakes sired Dru." She added.
"Okay so what the bloody hell is even going on?" Portal Lilith questioned as she crossed her arms over her chest, opting to ignore her correcting herself basically.
Present day Lilith sighed before she rubbed her temples. "Okay first off, what year are you from?" She asked.
"1998." She answered.
"Oh perfect. That year was hell for us." She groaned in annoyance.
"Tell me about it." Past Lilith stated as she plopped down on the couch.
"Okay so what point in that year are you from? What's just happened?" Present day Lilith questioned.
Past Lilith sighed. "Nothing much really. The slayer burnt my hand beyond recognition. Sire boys in a wheelchair from what the slayer did while he was performing the ritual on Dru." She commented.
"Okay, anything else happen?" She questioned.
"Hmn? Well if you can't the fact that Dru, Spike and I brought back the judge only for it to get killed by the slayer and the fact that our creepy great-grand-sire is evil once again, cause' you know, it was so much fun the first time, then no nothing really."
"I see I had a sense of humor. That's good to know. A girls memory can get very crappy with old age." She commented.
"What year is it now?" Past Lilith questioned.
"2004." She answered absentmindedly.
"Wow. No, shit?" Present day Lilith nodded. "So I really lived to be a century, eh?"
Lilith chuckled. "More or less. Now, about Angelus and William. They still fighting?" She questioned.
"Yeah pretty much...Oh christ." She growled out as she saw the look in her future self's eyes when she thought about Angelus. "Don't tell me I actually fall for that prick in the future?"
"Afraid so, Love." Lilith responded.
"Wait a second...Oh shit!" Past Lilith yelled as she stared intently at her eyes. "Don't tell me I get a soul in the future."
"Once again, you are correct-" She was cut off as Wesley and Gunn came in mid conversation to see two Lilith's sitting there.
"Woah. When did Lilith get a twin?" Gunn commented.
"About 123 years ago but that's besides the point."She stated as she stood up. "I cast a spell and for some reason it brought forth a past me." She explained.
"Hey it was no picnic for me either. Though," She said with a chuckle. "I wish I'd been there to see the look on Spike and Angelus' faces when I was sucked in by that spell of yours."
Gunn laughed. "That does sound like it'd be pretty funny." He commented.
"So what was this spell supposed to do..." He trailed off as he spotted a piece of paper lying on the floor. He carefully picked it up before he read it over and gave Lilith a look.
"Take a picture, mate, it'll last longer." She snapped before she flicked her wrist causing the paper to fly out of his hand and into her own. "I'll just take that, thanks."
"Okay this will get way too confusing! Didn't you have a nickname or something when you were human that we could call your past self?" Gunn questioned.
The two Lilith's exchanged a glance, obviously both thinking the same thing before they both simultaneously nodded. "Well what was it?" The lawyer questioned. The two Lilith's blinked at each other before they grinned.
Sunnydale, California, 1998
"Okay, what the hell was that?" Spike questioned as he stared at the spot where Lilith had been moments before.
"Our little Lil went for a visit." Dru grinned. "With herself."
"What do you mean, Love?" Spike questioned.
"What do you see?" Angelus breathed in her ear.
"She was carried away on fairy wings. Psst, Psst, Psst. She's in a different time."
"Different time?" He echoed thoughtfully. "You mean...she's in the future?" Dru nodded.
"Is that even possible?" Spike questioned as he placed one hand over the other.
Las Angeles, California, 2004
Angel and Spike waltzed into Lilith's apartment arguing only to find she wasn't there. There were black candles that had clearly been lit recently as well as a bunch of crumpled up pieces of paper and one ancient dusty text book in the middle of the circle with a single piece of paper lying on top of it.
"What the bloody hell happened here?" Spike questioned as he looked around.
"I don't know. But whatever it was, it wasn't good." Angel answered gravely as he picked up the piece of paper laying on top of the book. "Looks like Lilith wrote herself a spell."
"Keen observation, peaches."
"I mean honestly. I thought you were going to give her a job at your big fancy lawyer firm but no you have to please your bosses." Spike sneered as he continued to walk around the apartment while Angel read the piece of paper.
"And you know, it's common courtesy to keep track of a girl your supposed to care about-"
"Spike!" Angel yelled.
"What!" He yelled back.
"Look." He said gravely as he passed him the paper.
"Is this what I think it is?"
"Oh, Goddess of Light,
The guardian of the future,
Bestow upon me your wisdom." Spike and Angel found themselves reading the paper aloud, the blood from their veins that had been shed in the fight against the demon on their way over here, fallen onto the floor with each word.
"I call upon the ancient powers,
Of Heaven and Earth.
To guide me through out my quest,
To seek the answers,
To the unspoken question.
If need be,
Ask the right questions.
Be silent." They said in almost perfect unison as they gazed at the paper.
Sunnydale, California 1998
We'll have to check around the under-" Angelus broke off as a swirling cloud of smoke seemed to pull him towards it. He glanced to the side to see Dru get pulled into it along with Spike, the force of the portal causing him to get flown out of his wheelchair. Angelus clung onto the railing of the abandoned warehouse with all his strength but soon gave up and let go.
Las Angeles, California 2004
"I call forth from space and time,
from past and present.
To help guide me.
And bestow upon me reassurance,
of my family." They were starting to feel uneasy and a bit confused but continued to read aloud, not noticing the cloud of purple mist that was gathering in front of them.
I gather here,
And bestow upon me,
What once was." Their eyes widened as they dropped the paper in shock. There, stood in front of them, inside the circle of candles, were Drusilla, Angelus, And Spike.
