Last line: She was going to need it.

She was going to need it. Giles ordered burgers and sodas from the waitress and looked across the booth at Faith’s sad, pale figure.

“It’s over now. You did a good job.”

She made no answer and the sodas arrived. Giles blanched and ordered himself tea.

“What you saw,” he began. “The vision. It doesn’t mean it has to come to true.”

She looked at him.

“Faith, we defy prophecies daily. You are stronger than you realise. You are not going to blow your brains out in a cheap motel.”

“But it wasn’t me that I saw. It was you.”

A/N: written for giles_shorts for the last line “It was you.”

“It was you.” Giles had known immediately who had taken his red sports car. He slowly turned around to stare at the red faced young man staring back at him.

Xander gave Giles his most innocent look as he stammered. “But I... uh...I didn’t touch....”

Giles quickly cleaned his glasses. “You parked it in it a different space.”

Damn. He had thought he’d been so careful. And then it dawned on him. “You were parked in that same exact spot. I made sure to check...” At the look on Giles’ face Xander stopped talking. He knew he had been had.
