Even Girls Get to Have Fun
Disclaimer: I own nothing, everything Buffy belongs to Mutant Enemy and Joss
"Well Willow," Buffy said, sounding excited," Giles gave me the night off,
Xander and Angel are handling patrols, and I have been told to relax. I
guess Giles finally realized even Slayers need to have a break
occasionally. So, what are we going to do tonight?"
"You yelling at him had the desired effect, huh?"
"I couldn't help it. The boys get to go out and party, why can't I? It's
not like I want to go bar hopping every night or anything, but I need to go
wild every now and then. Especially after having to kill that chaos demon.
So, tonight we go out, get drunk, meet up with Xander and Angel, and I can
take Xander home and seduce him."
"He still trying to take things slowly?"
"Yeah. I think he's afraid if we sleep together it would mess things up.
I know we've only been dating a few weeks, but it's been building for so
long it feels much longer. I'm going to make him take advantage of me
"Sounds like a good plan. So, where do you want to go anyway?"
"Not the Bronze. Too many kids there. How about we try that new club
across town? We can get dressed up and do a little dancing?"
Later that night
"Damn this club is awesome," Buffy yelled over the music and their dance
partners. "I love this place. We have to bring our boyfriends here."
Buffy emphasized the word boyfriends for the benefit of the guys that were
hitting on her and Willow. Finally fed up with the way her dance partner
was trying to grope her; she dragged Willow back to their table.
"No more dancing for you.'" She told Willow giggling. "You're drunk and
have no slayer powers to defend yourself against all these guys."
Buffy ordered the girls 2 more drinks as Willow was dancing around in her
chair. Just as Willow finished her drink and was about to order another
one, a guy came up and asked her to dance. She said yes and was about to
head to the dance floor when Buffy grabbed her arm.
"Sorry," she told the guy, "she's had enough dancing for one night."
"But Buffy, he was cute."
"Willow! What about Angel?"
"Angel's not cute, he's hot. And sexy."
"That's not what I meant and you know it! I thought you two had something
going on? What's wrong? My ex not good enough for you? You know I'm okay
with this don't you? I want you and Angel to get together. You make him
happy in a way I never could. It was tough at first, when he got out of
hell and was closer to you, but now I'm really happy he has you. You guys
are such good friends, he and now never were friends. And you should be
friends first. Plus, I love Xander now. And "
"Buffy, stop babbling! That's my job and now everyone else is doing it.
First Xander and Oz, and even Angel. Now you."
"Willow, back to Angel."
"I really just don't want to start anything right now. It's too soon. Oz
and I just broke up a couple of weeks ago, and I need time. Angel
understands that, why can't you? Now, if you won't let me dance with cute
boys, you're going to have to dance with me."
"Of course. I guess my little wallflower grew up. Let's boogie."
About 2 AM, Buffy and Willow stumbled out of the bar, literally. Buffy
tripped on the way out and landed flat on her face.
"Ouch, that hurts."
"Poor Buffy, hehe, the slayer fell on her face. And I'm still standing.
And dancing," Willow said doing her best ballerina impersonation and almost
ended up beside Buffy.
"Help me up prima donna."
Willow helped Buffy up and they began walking home.
"I'm glad we live in a town where you can walk everywhere, but shouldn't we
page the boys and have them walk us home?" Willow asked, trying to figure
out if her and Buffy's laughing and stumbling would get them killed. Plus,
she really wanted to see Angel.
"Nope. I may be drunk, but I am still the slayer. Besides, I want to
surprise Xander. They should be finishing up the last patrol through the
cemetery. Let's head there."
The girls made their way to the cemetery still dancing, stumbling, and
The guys were fighting a couple of vampires. As Angel staked the last one,
the girls stalked out from behind one of the big crypts.
"BOO!!" The girls shouted in unison.
"Damn you two. You scared the shit out of me," Xander yelled at them after
he realized who they were. He had hidden behind Angel when they jumped out.
"Not me," Angel said "I heard you coming."
"Angel, you little blood sucking fiend you, you could have warned me."
"Ah, Xand-man, what's the fun in that. So, how are you doing? Did you
have a fun night off?"
"Oh yeah," Buffy said. "We had a blast. A little dancing, a little
drinking. I think Willow danced with every single guy there, and some of
the taken ones too."
"No I didn't. Only a few boys. And you danced with as many as I did!"
"Buffy," Xander exclaimed, as Willow doubles over laughing and pointing at
"Don't worry Xanderpoo, I was wishing I was dancing with you the whole
time. Well, except when I was dancing with Willow Xander, get that look
at of your eyes mister! Man, I mention dancing with Willow and you go off
in some sort of threesome fantasy."
"No, I didn't. Okay, I did. I'm sorry."
"Forgiven. Hey, where did Willow and Angel go?"
"I don't know, but Angel can take care of Willow. Come on drunken slayer.
Let me walk you home."
"Oh goodie, and Xander?"
"I just wanted to tell you I am planning on seducing you tonight."
Xander started walking faster, almost braking into a run, as they headed to
the apartment she and Willow shared. Buffy just giggled and tried to keep
up. But a part of her couldn't help but wonder what Willow and Angel were
As Buffy and Xander headed back to Buffy and Willow's apartment, Angel and
Willow were walking across the other side of the cemetery.
"Thanks for walking with me Angel. Buffy needs some time alone with
Xander. For what she has planned for tonight, I think it would best if I'm
"And just what does Buffy have planned for Xander?" Angel asked with an
amused sound in his voice.
"I can't tell you that. It's private," Willow said, turning redder by the
"That's okay. I can tell by the look on your face what it is. So, Buffy's
planning on making her move tonight?"
"Yep. Xander won't know what hit him. He doesn't stand a chance."
"Oh, I don't think he'll protest too much. He's really in love with her."
"And she's in love with him too. I'm glad they got together. She needs
someone who understands who she is. Someone who knows she is the slayer.
Xander understands what her life means and he can help her. Plus, they
look so cute together."
"So, do you want to stay at the mansion tonight? To give the lovebirds
some space? The guest room is free." <I just wish you would stay in my
room, but I can be patient.
"I'd appreciate that." <I want to stay with Angel in his room. Hmm, maybe
I can seduce him tonight. Hehe.
They continued on to the mansion, with Willow stopping occasionally to try
to get Angel to dance with her. In order to get Willow there without
running into any more vamps or nasties, Angel finally decided to just tango
their way home. It was late enough that no one saw them, but if they had,
they would have assumed they were a couple in love. And behaving in a very
By the time Angel managed to get Willow inside, she was close to passing
out, but she wanted to have another drink anyway. <Maybe this will give me
the courage to seduce Angel. She headed straight to the kitchen
"Angel, don't you have anything to drink besides blood?"
"Oh yeah, I have OJ, Coke, water, and maybe even some apple juice if Xander
didn't drink it all."
"Cool, OJ. Now where's the vodka?"
"Willow, I think you've had enough to drink. Let me get you a glass of
water, " Angel said as he steered Willow to the living room. "Now, have a
seat and watch TV."
Willow just sat there and pouted until Angel got back. "But I want a
"What do you mean, a courage drink?"
"So I can get up the nerve to seduce you."
"You need to be drunk to seduce me? Should I be flattered or insulted?"
"I don't have to be drunk to seduce you, but to get the COURAGE to seduce
"Oh, well no offense Willow, but in your state I don't think I can let you
seduce me. However, when you're sober, feel free. In fact, I'll even help
you out. Just knowing you want to seduce you will help me get the courage
to seduce you. Now, drink your water and we can watch a movie."
"Only if we can watch 'The Little Mermaid' again."
Ever since she had introduced Angel to Disney movies, he had begun
collecting them. They usually watched a least one a week.
"Okay, but I am NOT singing this time."
"You're no fun."
Angel put the movie on and settled in on the couch beside Willow. She
decided he would make a better pillow and snuggled up against him.
"Angel makes a nice pillow," Willow said, sounding very sleepy.
Angel sat enjoying the feel of Willow resting in his lap. She had her head
on his shoulder and he could feel her heartbeat beside him. About the
time Ariel got her legs, he could tell Willow was fast asleep. Angel
carried her into the guestroom and placed her down on the bed. On an
impulse, he got in the bed next to her and cuddled her close to him. He
thought about the sweet, loving women he held in his arms. Her offbeat
sense of humor that always made him smile. Her intellect and insatiable
curiosity that amazed him; she always hungered for knowledge, whether or
not she wanted to learn about the things she researched. She never tried
to pretend that monsters and the like were just myths. She faced things
head on with courage rarely seen in one so innocent and sweet. Her
dedication to studying magik was rooted in a desire to help the slayer and
others. She wasn't the slayer, but she stood by the slayer's side time and
again. She was a true friend to all who knew her, especially him. She
always listened intently when he talked about how his life used to be and
how he wanted it to be in the future. She made him want to open up in a
way no one else could. He had shared everything with her, and she never
turned away. She accepted him for who he was and who he could be. When
she didn't understand a part of him, she would talk to him, not pretend it
didn't exist. How could someone as sweet as her ever know the life he had
lead? But she wanted to find out and she used that knowledge to learn how
to understand him. She had given him the peace he had never been able to
find. In all years on earth, as a mortal or as a vampire, she had given
him the unconditional love that no one else had. And he had never loved
anyone as much as he loved her.
Never has someone attacked my soul like you,
Never have I felt so secure,
Today I do.
Finally someone sees me,
The real and complete me
Understands when she does,
And she does not lie
When she really don't see
The thought of love to me was just a dream,
Unattainable like a quilt without seams-
Like an angel you crept inside as I lay musing,
Wrapped your healing hands around my soul so abused
We hand and hand stepped out that cage into reality,
And pushed aside the walls of distrust beneath me,
Cries of redemption, the longing to be free
Fulfilled by an angel infiltrating my dreams.
