More of an Idea Man


"Spike, I don't think this is going to work," Xander said, looking at his mode of transportation. It was a wooden box seven feet long and two feet high; it had something written in Polish spray-painted on the side in bright red and looked like it had been sawed open once before. Xander thought he could almost fit if he went in a sort of diagonal way, but it would never be comfortable. Having snuck into LAX, they were standing in the cargo hanger outside a cargo plane destined for Nicaragua. "And I don't think that plane is pressurized outside the cabin."

"Bloody hell, Dru and I used to do this all the time," Spike said, dragging a crate of "supplies" he had managed to collect before they left Sunnydale the night before.

"First of all, the big huge issue of me not being dead and wanting to stay that way," Xander said. "And second of all, I'm not going to fit in the box."

"Oh, just bring along a cooler of blood, oh wait, you're not dead yet, are you?" Spike said as he managed to stagger while sitting down. Xander just glared at him.

"Spike, just how drunk are you?"

Spike held up a hand with his thumb and forefinger about a centimeter apart.

Xander raised a disbelieving eyebrow.

Spike increased the distance to a more accurate measure of his current inebriated state.

"That's what I thought," Xander said sarcastically. "Now, how exactly are we going to get to Costa Rica before Glory finds Dawn?"

Spike took a moment to think many deep and difficult thoughts. These ponderous ponderings came to an end when the Master Vampire snapped his fingers as if he had suddenly been so divinely inspired into thinking the very essence of Creation.

"We'll take a ship!"

'This is going to be a long trip,' Xander thought to himself with an audible sigh. He rolled his eyes at the blond vamp before climbing back into the black convertible they had stolen from Angel.

In a darker part of LA, Angel walked into the alley and found it empty. Keeping to the shadows he went back inside the building. Ducking his head into the office he asked: "Cordy, where's my car?"

The brunette shrugged and went back to talking on the phone.


Yep, the return of the dastardly duo! I'll add more soon, thanks for reading!
