Summary: Giles as a child was a handful.

Words: 140 (oops a little over)

A mother chased her five year old around the garden. “Gregory get out here and help me; he’s at it again!” she called to her husband when he pulled into the drive.

The little boy gave a merry chase; laughing as the fresh, green grass tickling his toes.

The parents came at him from two angles and was halted by his father. His mother approached with as stern a look as she could gather.

“Rupert, how many times have I told you? You cannot run around outside, in all your glory. Now get in the house and put your clothes back on.”

The boy walked solemnly back into the house. The parents looked one to the other and burst into laughter, eventually Gregory said, “His teacher is going to have her hands full when he goes to primary this autumn.”

Disclaimer: For fun, not profit.

A/N: I often write to music and sometimes I forget to write down which piece has inspired a particular scene. This one was written to a beautiful piece of music called Falling Leaves by Christian Smith.

Giles sits beneath the great oak, book in hand and her head in his lap as she counts the falling leaves. He’s lost interest in his novel so he caresses her cheek, murmuring loving endearments. Buffy’s eyes sparkle and she laces her fingers through his, bringing them up to her lips.

Lifting his eyes upon hearing their children laughing and chasing each other in the field below, Giles smiles, watching their antics. She kisses him and takes off running, triumphantly catching both boys in her arms, twirling them around. His heart is full and he revels in their glorious giggles.
