CHAPTER 2 – Watcher's, Tea and Talking

Buffy and the Scooby gang, (minus Giles) stood around the small bungalow that held the vamps that Spike had told them about. Buffy and Willow were holding a rather large and thick sticks, and the others were holding a mix of holy water, crosses and fire.

"On the count of three – Willow and I will smash the windows, and what we don't smash, Tara will, while the others throw the fire, holy water and crosses in. Do we have a plan?"

They all nodded, and Xander started to count. "One… Two… Three… GO!" Buffy and Willow smashed the windows with a loud crash, and suddenly, everyone was moving.

Soon, there was nothing left on the bungalow except a smoking pile of ash, dust and rumble. Buffy and the gang stood around, not talking, just staring at the mess that they had made.


Spike and Giles sat around the table, each holding a cup of tea. Giles took a sip before resting it on the table. He looked at the vampire in front of him before starting to talk.

"Spike. Why did you really come here today?"

Spike looked at the Watcher before gently placing his cup on the table. "Am I really that see through?"
Giles laughed slightly before becoming serious again. "Only to me. And only because I am a Watcher, its my job to see things others don't." He took a sip of his tea before continuing. "Buffy herself is going through some serious things at the moment, but, if you like, you can talk to me."

Spike looked at the older and younger man, (Spike being 311 years old.) with a look that clearly said NO! before starting to laugh.

When he had calmed down, he saw the Watcher still looking at him with interest and understanding. Before he could stop himself, he started to talk.

"Giles, I'm in love with Buffy and I don't know ho to deal with it, how to get over it, or even how to get her attention for more then a millisecond! I'm going out of my bloody mind, and she knows that I'm in love with her, because I've basically told her without the words! And now…"

Spike stopped while he still could. Giles looked at the vampire before sighing and standing up.

"I think we're going to need more tea, don't you Spike?"


3 hours later, Buffy walked back into the MagicBox. She couldn't believe it when she saw Giles and Spike hunched over something together. Neither had noticed her entry.


The slayer smiled as they both jumped and turned to face her. "Is everything okay guys? I didn't know the two of you were so… Close."

She watched in amusement as both Spike and Giles recoiled from one another, before laughing as she walked away.

When the slayer had left, Spike uncoiled and stood, before saying, "That for the tea and the chat old man."

Spike was stunned when he heard the Watcher's reply, "Your 311 Spike. You're the old man."


Giles was alone in the front of the shop while Buffy was training in the back, when all of a sudden; a throng of customers came in.

"Where the bloody hell is Anya when you need her?"

Meanwhile, Buffy had her music playing on low, and was kicking and punching the boxing bag before the door burst open, revealing a pissed Spike.

"You want to do some extra training love? WELL USE ME!"

Buffy stood there for a moment before throwing her whole weight at the vampire. She landed on him with a soft thud before his arms banded around her as the rolled across the floor. Suddenly, Buffy was on top of him.

"YOU BASTARD!" Buffy screamed at him before punching him across the face over and over again. "What are you doing to me?"

Spike meanwhile, was trying to get a hold of his senses, and he had let the slayer go with the first punch, but he looked up at her before saying, "What exactly am I doing to you Buffy?"

But it was too late – Buffy had already jumped up and left the room, slamming the door behind her, leaving the bleeding Spike to stare after her in confusion.


Willow and Tara stood beside the cage that was still Amy's home. Willow closed her eyes and muttered what she thought was the right incantation, and then there was a loud 'pop' and a squeak as she opened her eyes again.

"You c-changed her fur colour to b-blue!" Tara exclaimed, shocked. "Even I can't do that, and I've been practising for years!"

Willow just stood there and looked as her girlfriend before turning back to the cage. She felt Tara come up behind her and felt Tara slip her arms around her.

"Willow. It's okay. You'll change Amy back one day." Tara's voice was soft, seductive even.

Willow turned and faced the other witch and gently placed her lips against Tara's.

Tara moaned lightly before running her hands down Willow's back. They broke apart, but only to walk and fall onto the bed with a giggle. Willow landed on top of Tara, and started to kiss and suck her neck, working her way down towards Tara's chest.

Tara lay writhing beneath the red-haired witch, and then she started to pull Willow's shirt over her head, leaving her in just a bra, panties and skirt. Willow looked up before pulling the buttons on the front of Tara's blouse open, revealing that she had no bra on.

Willow greedily sucked and bit Tara's sensitive nipples, before palming them as she moved her mouth down Tara's stomach, and slowly started to undo her skirt.

And soon, Tara was screaming.


A full night passed before Tara and Willow finally came down from there room. When they entered the lounge, they were holding hands and giggling, but it suddenly stopped when they heard two gasps.

Both the witches looked up and saw Buffy and Dawn sitting on the couch staring at them with happy looks on their faces. Buffy was the first one to break the silence.

"Well. You two finally come down." Willow and Tara looked at each other before Buffy continued. "Do you want some breakfast? There's some pancakes on the bench."

The two witches smiled at the slayer before running to the kitchen, leaving Buffy and Dawn to talk again.

"So, how's school going? Your grades are getting better." Asked Buffy as she smiled after the two witches before turning back to face her younger sister.

"School is fine, and yes, my grades are getting better. And my teachers are happy with me. I think… I think that I like school."

Buffy and Dawn smiled before Dawn got up and went to her room to get ready for school, and Buffy went into the kitchen.

The three girls started to talk when the phone rang. "I'll get it!" Sang Buffy cheerfully as she skipped to the phone.

"Hello, Buffy speaking."

"Buffy, its Giles. Something has happened. Get to the MagicBox."

The connection was cut off, and Buffy ran out of the house, Willow, Tara and Dawn following her.
