A/N: If you want an explanation for my long-time hiatus with my B/A fics, I've written one in chapter 5 of Alternate Ending to Becoming, Part 2. I'm too lazy to do it again :P

Buffy groaned as she was thrown against a stone mausoleum, and managed to get to her feet as yet another female vampire attacked her. There were five of them and they had been preying on lonely male teenagers leaving the Bronze. She ducked a blow sailing towards her head and bent to trip the vampire. The fallen demon screamed as a stake was plunged into its dead heart. She stood and back-kicked another vampire, when suddenly a dark shadow jumped from the sky. Angelus.

Buffy caught her breath as the female vampires backed off, but one dared to try to catch her while she was caught off guard. She found herself on the end of a stake as she turned to dust. Buffy stood, and glared at Angelus.

"What do you want?" she asked, walking over to the tombstone where she had left her weapons bag, and bent to pick it up.

"I think I've made it pretty clear what I want," he answered, stalking after her as she headed towards the exit of the cemetery. She stopped in her tracks, and sighed.

"You really just love rubbing it in, don't you?" she murmured, her back to him. She turned to him. "Gone on, Dru's probably waiting for you," she added with a bitter bite in her tone. She turned her back to him and strolled out of the graveyard, looking unscathed although feeling anything but. He glared at her disappearing back.

"Why isn't working?" he murmured, not noticing the remaining female vampires gathering around him. "Hey!" he shouted, as they began stroking his arms and chest. "Get off!"

"Oh, I plan to," one of them said.

"Hey, he's mine!" the brunette vampire exclaimed, turning to the redhead. His gaze narrowed.

"I do not believe this!" he groaned loudly. "I am going to kill that witch." He began to move, but found the three vampires clinging to him. "I don't have time for this," he murmured, staking them in succession. He headed out of the cemetery, ignoring the feeling within him pulling him to Revello Drive.
