“Come with me?”

Buffy’s face was a mask of confusion. “Why?”

“Your friends, no matter how well intentioned did you a disservice.” Before she could ask Giles continued. “They pulled you out of Heaven, brought you back and assumed you would fit into your old life as if you had never been gone.”

Tears glistened in Buffy eyes as he spoke.

“I can’t bear to watch you try any longer. It’s too painful. You need a break. Come with me?” Giles repeated and held out his hand. “Let me help you.”

Without a word she slipped her hand in his.
