The Eleventh Man…

"No Rusty, not even for Danny ." Buffy could hear Giles' voice from across the street, "That's not something I do anymore."

"We're talking a lot of money here…" An unfamiliar voice joined in, "Enough to get this place cleaned up..."

"I have commitments here. I've gone straight; I'm not in the game anymore. Ask Bobby Caldwell."

"Yeah maybe. You're walking away from a fortune here…"

"Goodbye Rusty."

"See you round Ripper." The door opened, and a tall man in a casual suit walked past Buffy, smiling as he went, "Hey."

"Hey." Buffy smiled back, and then walked into the shop, "Giles, what was that all about?"

The End
