Say Anything

Summary: Xander calls Willow.  Takes place in season 3 after Xander and Willow kissed.  No one knows but them.  SONG FIC Say Anything by Good Charlotte

Xander didn't know what to do.  The fluke with Willow was so fluky.  He didn't even know how to think about the kiss.  He was with Cordeila and Willow was with Oz.  Willow and him were best friends.  'ughhh' he sighed.

"I should just call Willow and talk about this with her" Xander said to the wall. 

Making his choice he picked up the phone and dialed Willow's number

"Hello" said the person on the other end

"Hey Wills its Xander"

Here I am on the phone again and

Awkward silence is on the other end

"Xander hi" Willow said after a few seconds, "Did you want something?"

"Umm yea I did" Xander said "I wanted to talk about the umm fluke"

I use to know the sound of a smile in your voice

But right now all I feel is the pain of the fighting starting up again

"Xander I though we said we weren't going to talk about that" Willow said very seriously.

"Will we have to.  What does it mean? Are we just gonna chalk it up to the fluke thing.  Cause to me I don't think it was."

All the things we talk about you know they stay on my mind, on my mind

All the things we laughed about will bring us through it every time after time after time

"Will" Xander said when Willow didn't answer him

"I don't know Xander.  I don't know anymore."

Don't say a word I know you feel the same

Just give me a sign say anything say anything

Please don't walk away I know you want to stay

If you just give me a sign

Say anything say anything

Xander didn't know what to say.  He use to know what Willow was thinking.  When stuff happened between them he would know how to make it better cause he knew Willow so well.

Some say that time changes

Best friend can become strangers

But I don't want that no not for you

"Will I don't know either.  But I know that I don't want to lose you.  We have to talk about this.  We can't just ignore it.  Please Will. Talk to me." Xander was pleading now. He didn't know what to do.  He just knew that he didn't want to lose Willow.

If you stay with me we can make it through

So here we are again

Same old argument

Now I'm wondering if things will ever change

"Xander" Willow paused.  She didn't know what to say, "I don't want to lose you either" The tears were becoming evident.

"Don't cry Willow, things will be ok.  We'll get through this." Xander said not sure if he believed what he was saying.

When will you laugh again?

Laugh like you did back when

We'd make noise till 3 pm when the neighbors would complain

"Ok" Willow said composing herself "It's just that I got Oz and you have Cordeila and all the things we've been through I don't want what we have to change"

All the things we talk about you know they stay on my mind

On my mind

All the things we laughed about will bring us through it every time

After time after time

"Willow remember that time in 7th grade were your parents left you alone for the first time.  And I came over cause you were scared. And when I was about to leave I gave you your first kiss." Xander said

"Yea and it was your first kiss too.  But you didn't want to tell Jesse so we pretended like it didn't happen" Willow laughed

"Yea.  I don't want this to be like." Xander said taking Willow by surprise.

Don't say a word I know you feel the same

Just give me a sign

Say anything say anything

Please don't walk away I know you want to stay

If you just give me a sign

Say anything say anything

"Ok.  I don't think I want it to be like that either" Willow said after going over the idea in her head for a few minutes

I'm falling I'm falling I'm falling down

Don't say a word

I know you feel the same

Just give me a sign

Say anything say anything

Xander breathed a sigh of relief.  He didn't know how he would have reacted if Willow had said no.

"We're gonna have to tell Cordeila and Oz you know" Xander informed Willow with a happy smile on his face that was clear in his voice

"I know but I think it will be ok.  But Xander if things start not to work and we have to break up.  I don't want us to be not friends."

"Me either. I love you Willow"

"I love you too Xander"

Please don't walk away

I know you want to stay

If you just give me a sign

Say anything say anything
