It didn’t matter how much she begged, he wasn’t going to give in. No amount of bargaining, reasoning, whining, or even threatening bodily harm was going to prevent him from staying in. If she wanted to go out clubbing with the gang, that was fine by him, but there was a fire in the hearth, a mystery novel by the arm of his chair, and he’d just made up an Irish coffee.

But when Buffy came down the stairs in that little black dress, stilettos, and the bright red lipstick that accentuated her pout, he knew his plans were doomed.

But when Buffy came down the stairs in that little black dress, stilettos, and the bright red lipstick that accentuated her pout, he knew his plans were doomed.

"Where do you think you're going?" Giles cautiously asked.

"I'm your 'plus one'."

"The invitation doesn't include a 'plus one'."

"The invitation doesn't include the bit about it being a big fat trap for gullible watchers." She smiled sweetly. "Maybe the card was too small?"

Giles turned and tugged at his bow tie in the mirror.

"I can look after myself, you know," he griped. "You can't possibly be carrying any weapons."

"You can't possibly be carrying any weapons." Giles stared open mouthed at the purple mini skirt and lacy top Buffy was wearing. "Aren't you patrolling tonight?"

Buffy nodded. "Uh huh."

"But your clothes aren't..." At the look on Buffy's face Giles stopped talking.

"Get with the times, Giles." Buffy grabbed her stake from the top of the desk. "Just because I'm the Slayer doesn't mean I can't look good while I'm slaying."

His eyes narrowed as a thought occurred. “Is Angel meeting you there?”

She tried to shrug nonchalantly. “He might.”

A deep sigh escaped him.

He should have known.

Practice Makes Perfect

Rating: PG

Summary: A slayer needs lots of practice.
A/N: written for giles_shorts for the last line "“You better get some practice.”


“You better get some practice.”

Buffy bristled at the words. “Practice and patrolling is all I ever do.”

Giles held up his hands. “I didn’t mean...” He removed his glasses and quickly cleaned them before pushing them back up the bridge of his nose. “What I meant was this new creature, if the ancient texts are correct is something you’ve never faced before.”

“How bad can it be?” She’d been the Slayer since she was fifteen, she was positive she could handle herself.

He pointed to the drawing in the book.

“I’d better practice.” She was going to need it.
