Buffy and Giles were sitting in his apartment, sharing a companionable silence. After a while, Giles spoke.

"So, do you think the episode has started yet?"

Buffy said, "Only one way to find out." She got off her Watcher’s lap, and did a high kick. Then she punched the wall

"Nope, no abnormal desire to go ‘Hah-yah!’ Don’t think we’re on air yet. And I nearly broke my hand. I hope you appreciate what I go through for you."

Giles yanked her back into his lap. "You know I do, love. Any ideas what’s happening this week?"

"Not sure." Buffy grinned. "You know it’s supposed to be top secret. But I think I’m finally going to break up with Riley."

"At last! I was getting worried."

"Oh, don’t look so smug. You’ve yet to give Olivia the elbow, so you’re no one to talk."

"Oh, come on. Like she’s ever going to be able to compete with you, alcoholic little tart that she is. I was insulted when they wrote her in, you know."

"You, Watcher mine, are too charming for your own good. Do you think they’re ever going to get us together?"

"Maybe. I am considering bringing it up in our next contract. At least give us a few more emotional moments. I mean all those little looks and touches are very sweet, but they don’t give us that much to work with."

"You just want a sex scene with me, don’t you. Go on, admit it!"

"Well that pillock Angel got one, and you were only together once!"

"Officially, we’re not together at all. Keep your mind on business."

"Oh, but it’s so difficult, what with you being distracting all the time."

"Flatterer! Not that I mind, of course, but try to stay in character. Stutter a bit. It’s so adorable."

"O-o-o-ok-k-k-kay, d-d-d-d-dear."

"And don’t you be snarky with me either!"

"Sorry," he said, meekly. "Would you like some tea?"


He left the room. Buffy curled up on the sofa, and began undoing her shirt……….

When Giles came back in, he dropped the tea.

"Are you sure that the episode hasn’t started yet?"


"Oh, good. Because what I’m going to do to you now is definitely not family-orientated…"
