Characters Giles, Spike
“Forever is a long time.” Trapped with his unwelcome guest, Giles is drawn into desultory conversation with Spike. “Living history, so to speak.”
“You don’t know the half of it, book boy. Keeping up with fashion, you know, was a full time job. At the beginning it was all waistcoats, spats, watch fobs. Then things got more casual.”
“Plus fours?“ Giles suggested.
“Never! Finally I got to the classic look I have today.” Spike gave Giles a good look-over, “Have you always dressed like that? Because you’d have fit right in when I was turned.”
Giles smiled but said nothing.
