Characters: Giles, Ethan
"Better get some rest." Ethan cast the spell quickly, catching Rupert by the chest as he fell unconscious.
His doorbell had rung furiously at 2am, and there had been Rupert, tired, panicky, and more shit scared than Ethan had ever seen him. The First Evil had declared open war against the Council, against it's Watchers, against Buffy. He needed weapons, he needed a phone, a fax, a computer even.
Crazy talk of course, because Ethan knew best how to survive being hunted. What Ripper really needed was a place to hide, a place to think. He needed to go dark.
