Chapter Three  - Changed for Legal Reasons

"Xander?" Said Buffy.

Why is it that she can say my name better than anyone else? There is just something about the way she says it that, which is lucky since I couldn't describe it even if it wasn't.

"Xander? Are you listening to me?"

"Oh, yeah. I'm listening."

"I have something to tell you, something important."

Something important? This sounds...important. Best act undisturbed.


Buffy hesitated for a moment as if she was working out the wording in her head.

Why isn't she saying anything? Oh my God! It's bad; I know it's bad. It's terrible; it is the worst news possible. I just know it. Why won't she say anything!?! Say something damn you! Say something!

"For the love of God say something!"

Not again.

"Okay, calm down Xander."


"It's just is kind of sensitive."

Sensitive? That doesn't sound like me.

"It's about you."


"You and me."

Me and Buffy? Or should that be Buffy and I? Damn stupid grammar. I know I should have paid more attention during English class, if only they hadn't sat me next to Buffy.

"What about you and me?"

"Well, it's complicated."

Complicated? Is she sure it's about me?

"You see, we can't see each other anymore."

"We aren't seeing each other now."

What? We aren't.

"No, I didn't mean it that way."

Told you.

"I mean we can't be friends anymore."


"I can't go into that now."

"What do you mean you can't go into that now? You just told me we can't be friends. I think I have a right to know why."

"You do, just...I can't, not now." With that Buffy ran out of the building leaving a bewildered Xander behind.

I am bewildered, completely and totally bewildered. Why the hell doesn't she want to be friends anymore? Was it something I did? Maybe it was that prank with the toilet...but she pranked me back. No, it couldn't be that. Then what? What did I do? What did I do that was so bad?

Author's note: Man, where did that story come from? I just want to use this space to tell you that if you have any suggestions about what the story should be then by all means include them in your reviews. I ask because I don't know if you have noticed but I haven't got a clue what the hell this story is about. Also I am rather lazy and I wouldn't mind if you lot did the work I am supposed to do. And finally I would also like to use this space to insult the French; I fart in your general direction, now that is done onto the next chapter. That is unless it hasn't been written in which case use your reviews to attack me into action. I recommended comments about my poor writing ability and abysmal spelling/grammar.
