Title: Getting to know you


Author's Note: So school just started and I'm really beat and tired but thanks to the last person that reviewed (aka Alex) you motivated me into finishing chapter 16. I also want to thank everyone that reviewed you guys rock. I hope you like this chapter and where it's going. I'll try to update soon but with me you never know. HOPE YOU ENJOY!! Btw when it's in italics that means that's what is going on in Faith's mind.


"Hey B" I said looking away. I love you B. I need you please don't leave me. I controlled what my heart was telling me to say.

"Hey Faith. Are…you okay?" Buffy said to me as she cautiously stepped in the room.

"Hell yeah 5x5." I said to her giving her a dimpled smile.

"You look more like your 2x5 there Faith but I'll take your word for it." Buffy said offering me a slight smile.

"Yeah…" Was the last thing I said before awkward silence settled upon us.


Meanwhile up in the heavens….

Hera is sitting in her thrown looking at the display of feelings or lack thereof being showcased in Faith's room.

"Hmm she is an interesting one." Hera said to herself as she watched Faith closely.

"You are no Aphrodite, Hera." Demeter said.

"What bring you here my dear sister?" Hera's voice dripped with sarcasm.

"Nothing, but I do see your playing with human lives again." Demeter said snapping her fingers conjuring up a seat.

"I'm not playing with anything Demeter and I wouldn't be so quick to judge if I where you" Hera said looking at her sister.

"Oh I see someone has a temper but no worries Hera I'm not the one you need to worry about. Remember darling you still need to pick your champion you're the only Olympian who doesn't have one. You don't want to be viewed as weak do you?" Demeter said and with a wink she was gone.

"She has to be up to something…." Hera said to herself as she disappeared from the room


Faiths pov

"So I'm going to let you girls talks, I'll be right outside if you need me Faith" Cordelia said to me as she walked out of the room, leaving only Buffy, the awkwardness and I.

"Well I think I hear the crickets chirping from this deafening silence." Buffy said walking towards a chair near by.

"Funny B. So have you and the scoobies decided where to go next?" I asked her trying to sit up.

"Faith I think you should take it easy." Buffy said getting up to come help me.

"Nah B I'm fine you can sit back down I'm 5x5." I said motioning her to sit back down but Buffy wouldn't take no for an answer.

"You need help Faith just admit it!" Buffy practically screamed at me as she helped me sit up.

"Your not 5x5 Faith a person who is quote un quote 5x5 doesn't go around cutting themselves into an oblivion." Buffy said giving a stern look.

"Look B I don't need a mom ok? I lived my whole life without one don't need one now." I said looking away from her getting a little agitated.

"Faith…" Buffy sighed out. "You can't keep going on like this, u barely came out of your room back at the Hyperion and now look at yourself." She sighed out sounding a little sad but I knew it was all an act. Angel probably told her to come here because he was to busy to come himself.

"First of all if I remember correctly you never gave a damn so why now huh? Angel's got you doing his dirty work? He couldn't take time out of his busy fucking schedule." I spat back angrily

"Faith I thought we had put our past behind us…" Buffy said shaking her head.

"Right, just get out of my room please and send C in" I said feeling my heart sink. To think I was with her, I was holding her close to me and she really was in love. Stupid fucking wishes all they are is trouble.

"Faith, don't be like that please." Buffy said with what looked like tears on the rim of those beautiful hazel eyes. Shit B is a hell of an actress I'll give her that much.

"Get Cordelia, Buffy." I sighed out not looking at B.

"Okay…" Was the last thing I heard come out of her mouth before I heard the door close.

Do you honestly think she was acting? A voice rang through my brain. I shook my head thinking I was going crazy. Remember what I said Faith, you are only as good as you think you are no one will take you seriously if you don't take yourself seriously. Get out of this rut Faith, you are better than this. Stop being so hard headed!

"God damn it Hera get the fuck out of my head!" I shouted out before I noticed Cordelia was in the room looking at me like I was crazy.

"I really think you need to see someone, you're really worrying me Faith." Cordelia said as she walked over to me and caressed my cheek.

"I'm okay C, I won't lie to you and tell you I'm 100% but I'll be alright." I looked up at Cordelia wondering why she was touching my cheek.

"Why did you lie to Buffy? Why did you make her cry?" She looked down at me with an eyebrow raised.

I shook my head at her. "She doesn't need to know my shit. It's not like she really cares anyway so why bother?" I said shrugging.

"If she didn't give a shit then why did she have tears in her eyes huh genius?"

"I don't know…can we please change the subject Cordy?" I said getting tired of the whole B subject.

"You're not getting off that easy honey but okay for now. Your cuts where bad but your slayers healing got you through it. The doctor wants a psychologist to look at you because self inflicted wounds don't scream, hey I'm doing great! To anyone so be ready for that. The doctor says if the psychologist gives you the go ahead you can be out of here in 2 days." She said sitting down in a near by chair.

"Two fucking days? Come on can't I just sneak out or something C? You know I hate hospitals."

"No, you did this to yourself, your not getting out of it and if I catch you trying to sneak out I swear to the powers I will find a way to make you regret it for the rest of your life." Cordelia said giving me her version of red's resolve face.

"You know how to scare a girl don't you C, I think I like it." I said to her with a wink.

"Yeah whatever. Don't get to comfortable because the psychologist is on her way." As soon as C said that the door knob turned.

"Hello Faith." A familiar voice said my name and I couldn't believe it.
