This is a short chapter for what I think would happened in Family episode. I added so little to this chapter because I think Spike being with a soul or not wouldn't change anything in the transcript of this chapter . I know I am not good with the conversion but I am trying to improve myself.


Spike is sitting at the bar drinking whiskey when some demons come along.

"They gonna take care of the slayer tonight. the Lei-Ach demon was recruiting his brethren to kill the slayer!" one of the demons said.

Spike is suddenly paying attention

" How's that?" Spike said

" we do not talk with you . you are a traitor . you work with the slayer and help her kill our kind . get the hell out of here "

Demons begin to throw spike out of the bar .

" bloody hell ! I totally forgot about those demons attacking Buffy. I should start making notes of the previous attacks "

Spike entered The workout and found that Buffy is wrestling with a demon. Buffy breaks out of the demon's grasp and shoves it backward, off of her. As she stands up, the second demon grabs her around the waist from behind. Spike stops grinning as the first demon gets up. Spike rolls his eyes in exasperation and hurries forward. He tackles the first demon and pulls it aside, landing on the floor on his back with the demon on top of him. Buffy punches the second demon over her shoulder, then flips it, grabs it and shoves it against the wall. It slumps down and is still. Buffy enters the main shop area and runs forward.
" Where'd it go" Anya said.

"It's over there!" Xander said.

"How many are there?" Giles said.

"I've already been injured once this month!" Anya said.

"Shut up! " Buffy said.

Silence as Buffy looks around. The front door opens and Tara enters. She walks forward a few steps, looking anxious.

"Buffy, behind you! " Tara said.

There is a demon standing immediately behind Buffy. She turns just as it grabs her and throws her onto the table. She rolls off the other side of the table onto the floor. The demon punches Spike in the face several times; he flies backward and hits the wall. He notices a rack full of weapons hanging on the wall and grabs one. It looks a bit like a scythe, only with a short handle. The demon rushes at Spike but he kicks it and it falls to the floor. Spike lifts the weapon and chops downward.
"Tara, where is it? (looking around) Can you see it?" Buffy Said.

"Oh, god." Tara said.

Tara comes forward as the demon punches Buffy in the face. Punching noises continue as Tara rushes into the middle of the room and stops, looking down to concentrate.
"Blind Cadria, lift your veil. Give evil form... (The demon turns away from Buffy to glare at Tara) ...and break my spell. " Tara said.

There is a light flash in Buffy's eyes and suddenly she can see the demon, which is rushing at Tara. It hits her in the face; she goes down. The demon turns back to Buffy. She punches it, then it grabs her arm and throws her to the floor. She rolls over several times. Then Tara's dad enters, followed by Donny and Beth. The demon stands over Tara, who is still lying on the floor.
"Tara! " Mr. Maclay said.

The demon looks up, rushes toward Mr. Maclay. He falls backward onto the floor. Buffy, still on the floor, trips the demon and it falls on its stomach across the three steps up to the higher store level. Buffy flips up to her feet and puts one foot on the back of the demon's neck, gives it a shove. We hear the crack as the demon's neck breaks.

"What in god's name is that? " Mr. Maclay said.

Spike enters from the back.
" Lei-ach demon. (Everyone looks at him) Fun little buggers. Big with the marrow-sucking. "

Mr. Maclay gets up. Shot of Tara sitting on the floor, looking guilty.

"I don't understand." Mr. Maclay said.

" I'm not sure I do either." Buffy said.

" I'm sorry. I'm s-s-so sorry. (sniffling) I was, I was trying to hide. " Tara said.

Willow comes forward and kneels by Tara.

"I didn't want you to see ... what I am."

" Tara, what?" Willow said.

" What do you mean, what you are? " Buffy asked.

Tara tries to speak but can't.

"Demon. The women in our family... (Everyone looks up at him) have demon in them. Her mother had it. That's where the magic comes from. " Mr. Maclay said.

Tara looks down, then looks up at Willow, who stares at her.

" We came to take her home before... (sighs) well, before things like ... (points at the dead demon) this started happening."
" You cast a spell on us, to keep us from seeing your ... demon side. (to Buffy) That's why we couldn't see our attackers. " Giles said.

Buffy looks behind her at Dawn.
BUFFY: Nearly got us killed.

"I'll go. (scrambles to her feet. To Buffy) I'm very sorry." Tara said.
"The camper's outside." Mr. Maclay said.
"Wait! Go? (grabs Tara's elbow) I, she just did a spell that went wrong. It-it was just a mistake. " Willow said.

"That's not the point and it's not your concern. She belongs with us. We know how to control her ... problem. " Mr. Maclay said.

Willow looks at Tara in distress.

"Tara ... look at me. (Tara does.) I, I trusted you more than anyone in my life. Was all that just a lie?" Willow said.
" No!"

" Well, do you wanna leave?" Willow said.

"It's not your decision, young lady." Mr. Maclay said.
"(sharply to him) I know that! (more softly, to Tara) Do you wanna leave?"

Tara shakes her head, crying.

"You're going to do what's right, Tara. Now, I'm taking you out of here before somebody *does* get killed. (Tara wipes her face on her sleeve) The girl belongs with her family. I hope that's clear to the rest of you. " Mr. Maclay said.

Willow looks anxiously at Tara.

" It is. " Buffy said.
"You want her, Mr. Maclay? You can go ahead and take her." Buffy said.
"You just gotta go through me. " Buffy said.

Tara looks up in amazement as hope begins to grow.
"You heard me. "
" You wanna take Tara out of here against her will? You gotta come through me."

" And me! "

Tara smiles. Dawn walks up to stand beside Buffy. They both give Mr. Maclay the same steely glare.

" Is this a joke? (steps down one of the stairs) I'm not gonna be threatened by two little girls." Mr. Maclay said.
"You don't wanna mess with us." Dawn said.
"She's a hair-puller. " Buffy said.
you're not just dealing with, uh, two little girls." Giles said. "

"You're dealing with all of us." Xander said.
"This is insane. You people have no right to interfere with Tara's affairs. *We* ... are her blood kin! Who the hell are you? " Mr. Maclay said.

Giles, Dawn, Buffy, Willow, Tara, Xander, and Anya all standing together in a group, with Spike in the background.
"We're family. " Buffy said.

Tara smiles through tears. She looks at Willow, who smiles back. Mr. Maclay looks angry.

" Daaad. You - you gonna let 'em just... (stomps forward) Tara, if you don't get in that car, I swear by god I will beat you down." Donny said.
"And I swear by your full and manly beard, you're gonna break something trying. " Xander said.

Donny looks cowed
"Well. I hope you'll all be happy hanging out with a disgusting demon. " Beth said.

"E-excuse me. What kind?" Anya said.
"What?" Beth said.
" What kind of demon is she? There's a lot of different kinds. Some are very, very evil. And some have been considered to be useful members of society." Anya said.

" Well, I-I ... what does it matter?" Beth said.

"Evil is evil." MR. Maclay said.

"Well, let's just narrow it down." Anya said.

"Ohhh Why don't I make this simple." Spike said.

Spike walks forward and taps Tara on the shoulder. When she turns, he punches her in the face.

Spike acting that he is in pain and Tara reel backwards in pain. Tara grabs her nose, Spike his head.
" (angry) Hey! (suddenly realizing) Hey..." Willow said.
TARA put both hands over her face .

" He hit my nose!"
"And it hurt! Uh, him, I mean. " Willow said.

Tara looks at her in surprise.

" And that only works on humans." Buffy said to Mr. Maclay
"There's no demon in there. That's just a family legend, am I right? Just a bit of spin to keep the ladies in line. Oh, you're a piece of work. I like you." Spike said.
"I'm not a demon." Tara said softly to Willow.
" You're not a demon." Willow said smiling.
" He hurt my nose."
"Yeah, you're welcome. " Spike said then he began to walk towards the exit door.

" Hey, you. What is seriously wrong with you?. first you help me than now Tara . why are you doing this ? what is your game now, Spike ?" Buffy asked.

" there is no game . I am just trying to make peace with you and your friends. It is just some kind of truce between us . I am being hunted by demon and so now I can ask for your help in return " Spike said that then walk out .

" I don't buy it . I think he is up for something " Buffy said.

" then we will wait and see " Giles said.
