Later that night, 4:00 am

The telephone wakes Buffy up and she growls as she reaches across the bed to answer it. Pulling it under the blankets to her face she sounds muffled as she answers. "Hello?"

There is a pause and Buffy's about to hang up when she hears a voice. "Hey B."

Buffy pulls the blankets off her head and sits up a little, looking at the clock. "It's 4am Faith, what are you calling me for?"

"Oh, were you busy?" Faith almost sounds disappointed. It's like she has no idea people sleep at this hour.

"Yes, I was in the middle of a very good dream and you woke me up. Now tell me what you want or let me go back to never never land." Buffy said, starting to get irritated. She hated being woken up.

Again Faith paused before answering. "Was I in it?"

Buffy was taken aback by that question. Then she thought about it, wasting precious seconds. Now she had been too quiet for Faith to believe a lie. "Yeah."

Faith smiled, glad Buffy gave her an honest answer. "You didn't answer my question. Are you busy?"

Buffy shook her head and leaned back against the headboard. "Not really, why?"

"Well, I've been pacing around my hotel room since I got back here an hour ago. I'm just too antsy to sit still. I've got this itch."

She stopped talking and Buffy's curiosity got away from her. She cleared her throat, "An itch?"

"Yeah. You ever had an itch you can't scratch? Well that's how it feels."

"Oh." Buffy swallows, not quite sure what they were talking about. "And this involves me how?"

"Wanna go patrol?"

'Patrol?' Not quite the answer Buffy was expecting. She wasn't going to be able to go back to sleep though. "Sure. I'll meet you on 5th in 10 minutes."

"Wicked. See ya there." Faith hung up the phone. Buffy threw the covers off and took a quick shower. Tossing on a pair of jeans and a tshirt she grabbed a zip up jacket and went to meet Faith.

They went patrolling for about an hour. They started with a couple cemeteries but soon found out that tourists thought they were haunted so they moved onto the docks. Faith jumped up and kicked one vamp's head back, landing and staking the one coming up from behind her. As the first whips its head back Faith punches him square in the chest, knocking him down and she dusts him. She stands up and sees B about 30 feet away.

Buffy throws one vamp up against a building and stakes him. While she's busy a second one walks up behind her and grabs her by the neck, lifting her off the ground and holding her against the wall. Faith starts to run over when Buffy brings her foot up and kicks the vamp in the balls. He loses his grip and Buffy lands on her feet. She clasps her hands together, bringing them down around his neck, pulling his head down as she brings her knee up. Faith stops and admires B's skill. Buffy spins and kicks the vamp, causing him to fly backwards into some trash. Buffy prances over and he shakes his head, looking at her. She smiles, gives him a wave and dusts him. Faith starts to clap. "Bravo. Good form old chap."

Buffy turns around and laughs at Faith. "So, is that itch scratched?"

Faith smirks. "Yeah but you know me." Faith starts to walk back towards their hotels.

"What does that mean?" Buffy questions, keeping pace with Faith.

"Scratching one itch just…causes another." Faith looks at B like she's surprised she has to explain. The look on Buffy's face says she needs to go a little further. "You remember how it is B….slaying makes me hungry…"

"And horny." Buffy finishes for her with a nod. She should have known that. It always struck a cord in her. She tried to keep it from Faith but she felt that too. She just got enough pleasure from her non fat yogurt. Yeah.

"Anyway. Thanks for coming out with me. It was nice to have some company for a change." Faith said as she approached her hotel's entrance. Buffy looked up, not realizing they were there already.

"So…have a good night Faith." Buffy said, turning to walk down the block to her hotel.

Faith watched her for a moment then shook her head. "Hey B?"

"Yeah?" Buffy turned around, grateful that Faith stopped her.

"Wanna come up and share some room service?" Faith offered. She'd been having fun with the blonde slayer tonight and wasn't quite ready for it to end.

"Sure," Buffy said with a smile. Together they walked into the hotel and went up to her room.

Faith ordered some burgers and fries from room service as Buffy pulled open the shades and stepped onto the balcony. Faith's room had a wonderful view of the ocean. She heard music start to play and stepped into the room. "Disco?"

Faith shrugged her shoulders, kicking herboots off and moving slowly, starting to find the beat. "I thought we should stick with tonights theme."

Girl, close your eyes, Let that rhythm get into you

Don't try to fight it, There ain't nothin' that you can do

Buffy slipped off her shoes and danced further into the room. Faith turned the lights down a little and moved closer to Buffy.

Relax your mind, Lay back and groove with mine

You got to feel the heat, And we can ride the boogie

Share that beat of love

Faith danced up close to Buffy and put her arm around her waist. Buffy responded by putting one arm around Faith's neck. They continued moving together to the beat.

I wanna rock with you (all night)

Dance you into day (sunlight)

I wanna rock with you (all night)

We're gonna rock the night away

They pull apart but are still dancing together. This time they are just touching fingertips. They smile at each other, watching the other move.

Out on the floor, There ain't nobody there but us

Girl, when you dance, There's a magic that must be love

Buffy turns her back to Faith and backs up against her. Taking Faith's hand she wraps it around her as she slithers her body up and down against Faith.

Just take it slow 'cause we got so far to go

When you feel that heat

And we're gonna ride the boogie

Share that beat of love

Faith turns Buffy around, holding her close with both arms as they move as one.

I wanna rock with you (all night)

Dance you into day (sunlight)

I wanna rock with you (all night)

We're gonna rock the night away

They break apart as the drummer taps the cymbals. Faith busts a few disco moves, almost putting Travolta to shame. Buffy giggles and grabs Faith's arm, pulling her closer.

And when the groove is dead and gone (yeah)

You know that love survives

So we can rock forever, on

They move slowly together as the song winds down, repeating the chorus over again.

I wanna rock with you, I wanna groove with you

I wanna rock with you, I wanna groove with you

They are awakened from their little world when there is a knock at the door. Faith pulls away and smiles, turning to answer the door. Buffy turns the music down and Faith instructs the delivery boy to put the food out onto the balcony. Tipping him well Faith joins Buffy at the table. They each begin to eat their food in silence, watching the sun rise over LA.
