***************************************

Willow grumbled as she took a pile of bills out of Buffy's old post
office box at the post office. She put them all in the bag, and
then walked up to Mr. Johnson, the postmaster of Sunnydale.

"Hey Willow, here is the rest of the mail." Mr. Johnson said
kindly, as he handed her a few more bills. "Its getting so the
Summer house needs a bigger P.O. Box."

"I know Mr. Johnson, but we can't afford one. Thanks for keeping the
mail on the side."

"You're welcome Willow."

Willow sighed as she walked out of the post office and to her old,
beat up blue chevy nova. She opened the trunk of the car, and
carefully stacked the bills in some plastic containers, next to the
other bills. She knew she needed to tell the others about the bills,
but she just didn't have the heart. Xander and Anya were trying to
save up enough money to get married, they didn't need anymore
worries. And Tara, well she was doing such a good job of watching
Dawn while Willow was working, that Willow didn't have the heart to
tell her and make her worry. Willow pushed the trunk of her Chevy
down, and sighed again. She'd just have to get a second job, that's
what she'd do. Maybe she could get a job as a waitress. She already
worked days, what were a few nights a week, too?

Willow slid into the driver's seat of the nova and put the key in
the starter. Spike had scrounged the vehicle up from somewhere –
Where, exactly, she was afraid to ask. One never did look a gift car
in the mouth after all. She was just relieved it was running. She
turned the key, and the engine slowly sputtered to life, then died.
Willow's eyes went wide with panic and she muttered as she tried to
start it again. It was no good, the damn thing wouldn't start. She
leaned down against the seat in defeat, and a few silent tears
leaked out of her eyes.

"Damn it Buffy, why'd you have to go and die on us?" She whispered
softly again. That line was a mantra. Day in, day out, she felt the
pain of Buffy's passing. Sometimes she thought she'd never feel
anything but pain again. Willow got out of the car, grabbed her
purse and left the keys. "They want the thing, they can have it.
They can pay the bills too." She muttered as she began to walk home.

**************************************

Willow walked slowly down the streets of Sunnydale, her mind lost in
her own thoughts. She stopped at a news stand and picked up a local
paper, then headed in the general direction of home.
"Good thing its still daylight." She spoke out loud to
herself. Suddenly, she heard a car slow down and a voice behind her
"Hey! Willow! Need a lift?" She mentally groaned at herself.
It was Percy West. What the hell was he doing back in Sunnydale.
"I like walking!" She stated to Percy, as she continued to
walk briskly forward.
"Your miles from your house Will, come on, don't hold
grudges, let me give you a lift."
"Fine" Willow muttered as she turned to face Percy and his
car. Her jaw dropped. "Wow!" Percy was driving a shiny, bright red,
convertible "When'd you get this Perc?"
She slowly got into the front seat.
"I got it when I started working for the company after
graduation."
Percy grinned at her and patted the dashboard. "This baby and I are
in love"
Willow laughed at him. "What kind of job do you do that got
you so much cash?"
"Why I work for the WWE of course" Percy smirked at Willow.
"The WWE? What's that?"
"World Wrestling Federation. Its great Wills, I get to
travel all over the country, meet lots of people, see lots of
sights. I'm just home for the weekend to see the folks, they're
tired of only watching me on TV."
"Ah." Willow nodded at Percy. "Oh, hey, there's my spot. I'm
getting off at the old Summer house." Willow pointed at the house.

Percy slowed down and stopped in front of the Summer home.
He watched Willow nervously as she got out of the car, and then
cleared his throat.
"Hey, Willow, I know we weren't on the best terms in high
school, but would you mind going out somewhere with me tonight? I
don't really know anyone in Sunnyhell anymore, and I'd like to
escape the parents."
"YOUR asking ME out Percy?" Willow looked at him with
disbelief in her eyes. "You couldn't STAND me in high school,
remember? Only reason we talked at all was cause I did your homework
for you."
"I know, and well, I'd like to apologize for that. I've
changed a lot since then, and I'd really like to have a chance to
make up for it."
Willow frowned, and chewed her lip thinking.
"I guess Tara can watch Dawnie for a few hours tonight. Pick
me up at 8?" She asked. "I'll be here." She nodded towards the
house.
"Great!" Percy exclaimed, a big grin breaking across his
face. "I can't wait to see you tonight."
Willow waved, then turned and walked to the front door of
the Summer home. She smiled in disbelief at herself. She had a date.
With Percy. Could adult life get any crazier than this?

"You What?!" Xander stopped dead and looked at Willow "How
could you agree to a date with PERCY! Remember him? The ass that
made you do his homework all senior year of high school! The ass
that almost beat me up on several occasions, `just because'! He's
gonna want to get into your goodies! I don't want him with his paws
up my Will's bra! I'd rather shove a stake up his ass than see you
go on a date with THAT boy!"
Xander shouted.
"Shoving a stake there might not be enough to kill
him. Actually, it's just plain twisted." Willow grinned at Xander as
she said it. "Sides, I don't let just anyone put there paws in My
shirt. After all, you know the only thing that gets stuffed in my
bra is stinky yak cheese, and that's only out of necessity.
Therefore there will be no paws in my bra. So cool it, Xan-man."
The doorbell rang, and Xander grumbled unhappily as he
answered the door. It was Percy. "If you hurt her, I get to kill
you." Xander said, and then he turned, and stomped angrily up the
stairs.
"Sorry bout that." Willow apologized. "Xan's a bit cranky.
Must be some mysterious Male-PMS thing."
"That's alright." Percy laughed and linked arms with
Willow. "I wasn't exactly the Mr. Nice guy in high school."
"You were more Mr. I'm to hot to bother with anyone else but
me." Willow teased playfully as Percy opened the car door for her.
"So… You think I'm hot?" Percy grinned.
"PERCY!" Willow laughed. "You may be hot but you still owe
me big time for all that homework!"
Percy winced and replied, "Damn, I think I'm scared."
Willows laugher rang through the night as they drove to
their date.

The night with Percy passed quickly and Willow found herself
amazed at the fact she was enjoying herself with him. He had taken
her to a small Italian restaurant, and they had enjoyed pasta and
some fine wine. Then they went and danced at a club that wasn't the
bronze. Willow grinned in amusement as she remembered the jealous
looks that several ladies had sent her. To bad they didn't realize
Percy West was barely a friend of hers… Although she had to admit,
privately, that Percy could become a good friend. Now there was
something she never imagined possible.
"Penny for your thought." Percy quipped and flashed Willow a
smile.
"I was just thinking that we shoulda done this a long time
ago." Willow replied. "Why weren't you this nice in high school?"
"Some people just had to grow up a little, and I'm one of
them, I'm afraid." Percy said.
"At least you didn't have to grow up the hard way." Willow
said with a little sigh.
"You? Rosenburg? Your parents gave you whatever you wanted.
I wouldn't call that exactly hard."
"Well you remember those … Problems, in high school? The
kind that goes bump in the dark? And Buffy's death? I'd call both
those things growing up hard."
"Buffy? Dead! No one told me that. Oh Will, I'm so sorry.
How'd it happen?!"
Without realizing what she was doing, Willow started telling
Percy the whole story. She told him about Dawn, and Buffy dying, and
then told him about putting the Buffy bot together again so that
they could fool the Social Workers into thinking that Buffy was
still around. She told him about all the monsters, and the slaying
and the hardships that the Scoobies had endured since. Finally, she
brought Percy up to date on all the bills, and the fact that she had
yet to tell Xander and Anya about the problems that she was having
keeping the house running. She sat back finally, running out of
steam, and ran her fingers through her hair distractedly.
"I'm sorry I told you all that stuff Percy, but thanks for
listening, I really needed a shoulder." She said with a small sigh.
"Wow, Willow, you were right about growing up the hard way.
I had no idea. I'm sorry I was an ass for all those years." Percy
said, a small frown on his face. He looked away for a moment, almost
as if he was thinking.
"Gee Percy, you didn't know. I was just mousy, quiet, dorky
Willow back then. No one really knew me except for Xander and Buffy.
And now … Buffy's gone." Willow wiped her eyes on the edge of her
shirt.
"Well, Willow…" Percy paused, as if he was trying to figure
out what to say. "You know, I think that I know the answer to at
least one of your problems."
"Really? What makes you think that Perc?" Willow asked.
"I know for the fact the WWE is looking for a Networking
Admin for its computer systems. I could be your reference and you
could get a job at the WWE. What do you say? I could phone them
right now." Percy whipped out a small cell phone, his fingers poised
to dial a number.
"Do you think they'd give me a job making enough money?"
Willow asked in a whisper, her eyes widening with sudden hope.
"Willow, baby, the WWE never does things half way. Trust me,
if you take this job you'll be making plenty of dough. Are you in?"
"Don't call me baby." Willow snapped automaticly. "I'm
nobody's baby. And, of course I'm in. Show me the money!"

A few days later, Willow found herself in a whole new world.
Percy had been good to his word. The WWE was in LA at that moment,
and after one look at Willow's resume, they gave her a job on the
spot. No interview, no questions, just a job with a contract. A
contract worth a LOT of money. Obviously Bill Gates wasn't the only
one who wanted Willow's computer expertise. Willow was thrilled. The
money from this job would be the means to keep Dawn with the group.
She had programmed the Buffy bot to act very adult like for while
she was gone. She had also shown Tara a few tricks for keeping the
robot up to par. Said robot even made pancakes. Dawn would be fine.

Xander, however, was less than thrilled about Willow's
leaving. He claimed that she would live to regret going to the wild,
wild world of the WWE. He didn't even calm down when she told him
she more than likely wouldn't see the wrestlers, unless they
happened to have a computer they needed repaired. He just didn't
want his Wills to leave. She finally got him to calm down with a
promise to call everyday, no matter what.

Percy was being especially nice to Willow. She couldn't get
over it, how much he had changed since high school. He even made
sure they had a suit of rooms together in the hotels, so that she
wouldn't feel all alone while traveling with the company. He had
said that had been his worst obstacle, at first, the feeling of
overwhelming loneliness that came as a part of constant traveling
and never being in one spot. They hadn't become anything romantic,
instead something better had happened. Willow Rosenburg and Percy
West had become close friends. Willow had even taken to working out
with Percy when she wasn't working on the computer systems, so that
she could keep in shape while she was away from Sunnydale. As a
matter of fact, she was supposed to meet him to work out in twenty
minutes.

Willow looked at the computer she was currently tinkering
with, a old PC that had seen better days, and grumbled under her
breath. She now understood why the WWE was so desperate for computer
help. These people were clueless about machines; they didn't even
know when their systems were so old and outdated that they'd be no
good anymore.

"That bad, eh?" A male voice, that sounded full of
amusement, asked.

"You people should just junk all your computers." Willow
snorted, as she pulled out an old video card. "These things are
worthless. But, they'd make great door stops."

The man looked at her a minute, and then laughed. "I'm glad
it's you and not me looking at those." He said as he watched Willow
replace the card. "I get near one of those things and it
automatically breaks. And my sister back home bitches cause I never
email her."

"Well, this one should work fine for email." Willow placed
the case back on the computer and stood up, hooking the box back up
quickly. "I wouldn't want to try much else though."

"My name's William Regal." The man said smoothly as he
handed his hand out to Willow. "I hear you're the new computer girl
in these parts."

"Willow Rosenburg." Willow replied, standing up and shaking the
man's hand. The man's eyes widened slightly. "Are there many
Rosenburgs in the U.S.?"

"No, why?"

"I just happen to know a Rupert Giles. He's mentioned your
names plenty of times in his letters. Said you were an amazingly
bright girl with superb researching abilities. I never thought I'd
get to meet you in person."

"You know Giles?!" Willow exclaimed in disbelief. "Giles
never mentioned knowing anyone in the WWE."

"That's because he knew me before I was into Wrestling. We
went to school together. How is Ripper, anyhow?"

"He's gone back to England." Willow replied absentmindedly.
She looked at her watch and frowned. "I'm sorry to cut this short,
Mr. Regal, but I'm supposed to go meet someone right now. I'd hate
to be late."

"That's fine, Willow, it was a pleasure meeting you. If you
ever need any help, please, feel free to ask."

"Thank you sir, the pleasure was all mine." Willow smiled a
charming, Willowy-smile at the man, and was gone.

William Regal walked back to his desk, and sat down. So,
Rupert Giles was in England, was he? That meant there was only one
place he could be. William picked up the phone, and placed a call to
the Watcher's Council.

Willow sprang up from the mat, and started bouncing lightly on the
balls of her feet. She and Percy had been working out in the ring
for a half an hour or so, and they were gathering quite an audience.
Most of the people didn't realize that Willow's moves were
defensive, meant to protect herself from Percy's offensive moves.
She got one or two moves of her own, but mostly she was having fun
ducking in and out of Percy's arms and teasing him.

"Come on West, Can't you even get your arms on little Mousy
Willow?" She jeered playfully as she ducked between Percy's legs and
scrambled across the ring. "People are gonna think your afraid of
hitting a girl. What's the matter, Scared? If you aren't careful
people are gonna start calling you Red's Bitch."

Percy laughed at Willow, and lunged, catching her foot and
sending her down into a controlled tumble.

"You want Xander to kick my lilly-white ass?" Percy
responded. "I ain't trying to hurt you Wills, just trying to make
you move around a bit."

"Scared of little-boy Xan-man?" Willow mocked, laughingly as
she danced playfully around Percy, giving him a wedgie. "Xander
wouldn't hurt a fly, and you know it!"

"He threatened to put a stake up my ass!" Percy grinned at Willow,
and snapped her bra strap just for fun. "And that would be downright
painful."

"Aww, what's a little staking Perc? Adds some spice to your
life!" Willow slid down to the floor, grabbed Percy's shoelace and
pulled. Percy lost balance, and toppled down on Willow, pinning her
to the floor. "Bring in your flying monkey's now, Witch."

"I'd call on my flying monkeys, but they're in a match
right now." Willow giggled up at Percy, causing him to laugh in
response.

"Bravo!" Cried someone from outside the ring, and then the
clapping began.

"You sure you aren't a wrestler, girl?" A man asked, as he
handed Willow a towel. "You sure looked good up there. Better than
the Bra and panties matches, that's for sure."

"Lay off Christan." Percy growled, his eyes flashing. "If
any of her other friends heard you talking about Willow like that,
they'd be apt to kill you."

"Over react much?" A redhead asked, as Percy stomped off
towards the shower.

"I guess he feels responsible for me." Willow grinned at the
girl. "Hi, my name's Willow. I'm the new Network/Computer girl. I'd
shake your hand, but I'm all sorts of sweaty right now." Willow
wiped her for head with her towel.

"Lita. Thank god they finally found someone for these stupid
things. Think you could fix my lap top?"

"I'd love…." Willow trailed off as her phone rang. She
smiled apologetically as she picked up the phone and turned it on.

"WILLOW!" Angel's voice bellowed from the phone. Willow
winced and held the phone out a bit from her ear.

"Angel?" Willow asked in a soft, confused voice.

"WILLOW! What the hell do you think your doing! Running off
from home like that and joining some three ring circus!"

"Its not a three ring circus, Angel, it's the WWE."

"Angel! Angel, calm down, I don't care what Giles has been
telling you! I'm not doing bra and panties matches! No you will NOT
come and get me right this second! We're fucking broke Angel! We
NEED the money!" Willow paused and her eyes widened as she heard a
baby crying in the background. "Angel, who the heck is that?" She
asked into the phone. "WHAT DO YOU MEAN, DARLA HAD YOUR BABY!"
Willow gasped out, in a half shriek, half shout. "YOU can not be a
200 plus old first time Daddy!" Willow listened to Angel babbling a
few more minutes and then said "Listen, Angel, you are in NO
position to tell me what to do. You are not my father, and I am not
a child. I'm doing what I need to do to keep my family together! So
deal!" Willow hung up the phone, without bothering to say goodbye.

"The nerve of that man." Willow muttered, walking out of the
ring. Lita watched the girl with amusement. She obviously was
overwrought about the telephone call. Lita made a note not to get on
the woman's bad side, and wander out of the ring.

A tall dark-haired woman gazed thoughtfully after the red
heads. She turned to a blond haired, cheerleader type girl and
said "Spikey's ex… Oh Spikey's ex… Little tree has found out some
very interesting information."

"The name's Harmany, Dru. How many times must I tell you?"
The woman snapped, her eyes scanning the area for more of the
luscious men she knew were out there.

"Little tree just talked to Daddy. It seems that Daddy is a
REAL daddy now. Just like mommy is a Real mommy. I wonder if Mummy
and Daddy would like Little Tree served up as a peace offering.
Maybe then Daddy would take care of his little girl once again. He
so loved his Dru, once upon a time. It was so long ago… I bet little
tree would make daddy love dru again." Dru twirled, her dress
spinning around her. Harmony looked at Dru with disgust. "Sure he
would, Dru. Why do you want this girl so badly?"

"Don't you want to make Spikey mad? Harming Willow would
hurt Spikey… Spikey always liked red heads. Not as much as he loved
me, but he likes red heads a lot."

"Revenge." Harmony whispered harshly. "Revenge is as good a
reason as anything." Druscullia and Harmony followed the red head as
she made her way to the locker room.

Willow walked into the locker room, sat down on a bench, and started
untying her sneakers. She wanted nothing more than to take a long,
hot shower. She looked up as the door slammed suddenly and her eyes
widened with fear. She couldn't quite believe what she saw.
Drusculla and Harmony were standing up against the door, side by
side, with their arms linked. Or at least she assumed it was Dru.
The vampire didn't have her doll, so Willow wasn't quite sure.

"Dru! Harmony! What are you doing here?" Willow asked, backing up
against the locker.

"Little tree talked to daddy. Daddy doesn't love Dru anymore… He
thinks Dru is bad." Drusculla said in a sing-song voice. "Dru
decided to give Willow to daddy as a prezzie… Maybe daddy would like
Dru again."

"What kind of prezzie are we talking here, Drusculla." Willow asked
nervously, her mind quickly forming a plan.

"The dead kind, Willow. We plan on turning your ass, and making you
one of us." Harmony stepped closer, and her fangs hovered inches
from Willow's neck. "I can't stand you, but it'll be fun to be your
Sire. You'll have to do whatever I tell you. It will be just like
High School all over again. Only instead of being a geek, you'll be
my pet. What fun we'll have."

"That's what you think." Willow said coolly and then sprang into
action. Two stakes appeared out of no where, and Willow's eyes
flashed a dark color. "How dare the two of you think to turn ME?
Don't you realize what kind of games you are playing?" Drusculla
went flying to one side of the locker room, Harmony to the other.
The stakes flew towards the women, and stopped, pointed directly at
their chests. Willow raised her hands up and looked the two women up
and down. "I'm not the mouse you thought I was… No, I'm the cat and
you two ladies are now officially the mice." Willow's sly smile held
some malice as she let the stakes dig a little deeper into the two
women's chests. "And Buffy's the real "Cat" But Buffy's away. So
now… We get to play."

"Hey Willow, you decent?" Percy's voice rang out, and he entered the
locker room. "I want you to meet my friend Jeff…." He stopped, and
the other man stared at the scene in disbelief.

"What is going on?" Jeff asked, his eyes puzzled at the sight.

"Remember those "troubles" I told you we use to have at home. Gangs
on PCP type troubles?" Percy asked Jeff, as he backed up to a wall,
grabbed a chair, and broke it to get a makeshift stake. "It appears
that trouble follows Willow." He quickly flung another part of the
chair to Jeff. "Need help, Wills?" Percy asked, his eyes trained on
the two women.

Willow shrugged and pretended to think about it.

"Naw, they're not worth it." She replied. "I spent half my life
scared of these two, and they're way to easy to take out now. They
just aren't worth it."

Willow walked up to Dru, who was pinned to the wall with Willow's
magic and smiled chillingly at her.

"Listen woman." She said, getting right in Drusculla's face, while
grabbing the stake and bringing it up to Dru's neck. "I'm letting
you go, just this once. Try it again and you'll find out why
everyone's so scared of the Slayer's pet witch. Angel is gonna be
very angry with you, so I suggest you run far, and run fast. Spike
is gonna want to stake you himself, so Sunnydale isn't the place for
you, my pet. Your not welcome anywhere Dru, so start running, hard.
If you come near me or mine again, I'll do worse things than stake
you. Understand?"

The dark haired woman nodded slowly, and a tear trickled out of her
eye. "All I wanted to do was make daddy love me again." She
whispered.

Willow dropped Harmony and Dru to the floor, and then used her magic
to fling them out the door.

"Remember girls. Touch me and mine again, and your dust."

The two vampires quickly walked away.

"What WAS all that?" Jeff Hardy asked, his eyes puzzled.

"Would you believe, gangs on PCP?" Willow asked, and then promptly
fell to the floor in a faint.

"She did something with those girls, and then fainted." Willow heard
Percy's voice. "Are you sure she's all right Xander?" She heard
Xander's muffled voice coming through the phone. "What do you mean,
stuff like this drains her energy? She does magic all the time?"
Percy paused listening to Xander then snapped at Jeff "Go. Get her
Gatorade. Xan said its what she drinks after these fainting spells."

"The red kind please." Willow whispered, without opening her eyes.
Jeff could be heard sprinting out of the locker room, and down the
hall.

"She's awake." Percy sounded relieved "Will, are you up to talking
to Xander?"

"Yea." Willow nodded opening her eyes. Percy handed her the cell
phone.

"Xan, I'm fine." She said slowly and clearly into the phone. "The
magic just took a bit out of me, you know? And yes, Dru's gone. I
don't think she'll be bothering me anymore after this stunt." She
listened for a moment and then said "Yea, Xan, I did meet someone
that knew Giles, why do you ask?" She laughed a little shakily at
Xander's reply and said "Damn, so Giles knows does he? How'd he take
it." She listened to Xander's agitated response and sighed. "Listen,
Xan, you knew it had to be done. Someone has to make enough cash to
pay the bills. If you can come up with a better way then fine, I'll
come home. But until then, I'm staying. Dawn needs us, and we need
this cash, got it? If you all could do so much better, then I
wouldn't have to be here. But noooo… we couldn't make ends meet, so
Willow has to bring home the bacon. I know this wouldn't have
happened if Buffy was here, but that's just it Xander, Buffy isn't
here! We have to do something! Listen Xan, that's enough of this
argument, I've got to go. Yea, I love you too. Kiss Dawnie for me."
Willow clicked the phone off.

Jeff came sprinting back into the locker room, carrying a red
Gatorade.

"Good, your awake. Are you ok?" Jeff asked, panting slightly from
the run.

"I am now that I have this." Willow said, taking large gulps of the
red goodness. "Goddess, this stuff normally tastes disgusting, but
boy does it feel good after an overdose of magic."

"So I wasn't imagining things?" Jeff asked in a little boy
voice. "You can really do Magic?"

"There's more to life than most people want to believe, Jeffy-boy,
magic and vampires are two of those things." Willow answered
tiredly. "I could kill you with a floating pencil, if I really
wanted to."

"Remind me not to get this girl angry." Jeff whispered to Percy. "It
seems like it could be deadly."

Percy flashed Jeff a grin then replied "Come on, we gotta get Red
here back to the hotel room."

"Where to Perc? " Before Willow could stop him, Jeff picked the
small girl up in his arms.

Percy grinned at the sight. Jeff Hardy didn't pick up just anybody.
Things were bound to get interesting around here.

Xander dropped the phone into the cradle with a sigh, and hung his
head down in defeat.

"What's wrong, love?" Anya asked Xander.

"Willow. Drusculla. Harmony. Magic. Man, I wish Willow hadn't taken
the job. Then she wouldn't have had to use magic while facing those
two. I wish Buffy was here to stake them…If only… If only there was
some way to bring Buffy back to us."

"Well, there is one way." Tara admitted, popping her head into the
room. "I wasn't sure if we could do it or not, but I did the
research and it's difficult, but possible. We have all the
ingredients we need in the Magic shop, as a matter of fact, and the
Moon is in the right alignment. Would you be interested in doing the
spell?"

"Yes!" Xander and Anya exclaimed as one.

"Then lets go get the stuff to do the spell." Tara smiled shyly at
the two.

Late the next night, Xander, Anya and Tara hovered over Buffy's
grave, breathlessly waiting to see if the spell they had performed
worked. It had been a nasty little spell with bits and pieces that
Xander didn't really want to think about, but the girls seemed to
know. Xander smiled to himself. Man, did it help having a couple of
Witches and an Ex-demon for friends. The time ticked slowly away…
first midnight, and then one, two, three in the morning rolled
around. It wasn't until nearly four in the morning that the dirt
began to stir at their feet. Anya and Tara clutched at Xander's arms
excitedly, hoping against hope. Xander would later find that he had
two sets of bruises along his arms, but at that particular moment he
didn't care. The earth suddenly pushed upwards, and Buffy crawled
out of it quickly.

"Hi guys." She said calmly, dusting herself off. "Miss me?"

"Buffy!" Three sets of arms encircled the girl, bringing her into a
long awaited group hug.

After several long minutes of hugging, kissing, and crying Buffy
disentangled herself from her three friends. She turned around
slowly as if looking for something, or someone.

"Hey guys? Xan? Where is Willow?" She asked, puzzled. "I would of
thought Willow would be here."

"Well, you see, Bufster…" Xander began, drying his eyes. "Its kind
of a long story… lets get you back to the house and we'll tell it
there."

"Alright, I guess." Buffy said, frowning slightly. "But I want my
Willow-shaped friend. I missed her. Where is she?"

Xander made a face and wrapped an arm around Buffy, kissing her on
the forehead.

"Be patient Buffy, its gonna be a long night. Let's just say we're
all very, very glad to have you back."

Raw was on. Willow was watching the show avidly, on a TV in the
company lounge. She had never been that much into wrestling, but
since she had met Jeff, she though she ought to take more of an
interest in the show. She couldn't believe the antics of some of the
wrestlers, and wondered how in the world the wrestlers did what they
did without getting to hurt. She couldn't believe the match that she
was currently watching, which Matt and Jeff were in, and was
wondering what the outcome would be. It sure looked like they worked
hard for THEIR money.

Willow muttered under her breath when she heard the phone ringing.
She wasn't thrilled about the fact that she was being distracted
from the match. She glanced at the phone, and turned it on when she
saw Xander's number.

"This better be good." Willow growled into the phone. "I'm watching
buff men getting all sweaty and yummy looking and stuff. Better be
something earth shattering."

"Well gee, Wills, if you feel that way, I won't tell you who came
back to Sunnydale last night." Xander said teasingly into the phone.

"Was it some bad guy?" Willow asked, instantly going on alert. "Do
you need me to do some research?"


"Hmmm… Actually we DO need you to do some research…" Xander said
teasingly, sounding especially cheerful.

"Xander! Just stop being a pest and give me the phone!" A girl's
voice cried out in the background. "Stop teasing Willow!" Willow
heard a tussle occur and then the girl's voice came on over the
phone. "Geese, you'd think he liked bringing back the dead just to
fight with them. Hey Willow, how are you? When are you coming home?"

"Buffy?" Willow gasped. "Buffy, what have they done?"

"Tara found a spell to bring me back." Buffy said, and Willow could
almost hear the girl shrug. "Which is of the good, because I felt
like I had a lot of things left undone. She let me have another
chance at life. That Tara girl is one cool chick. We were gonna call
and tell you last night, but everyone was beat, I didn't come back
till like, four in the morning."

"Buffy? Your back?" Willow's mind couldn't seem to grasp the
concept.

"Yea, I just said that. Sheesh Willow. Are we on the same page yet?"

Jeff and Percy walked into the room and saw Willow staring at the
phone she was holding in shock. Jeff touched Willow's shoulder
lightly and looked at her with concern.

"You ok, Red?" He whispered to her.

"Buffy. Is Back. Back. Buffy. Buffy's back?!" Willow stammered out
the confused sounding words, then crumpled to the floor in a faint,
dropping the phone with a loud clatter.
"Way to go, Jeff, you really have a way with girls." Jeff's brother
Matt said as Jeff knelt down beside Willow. Matt eyed Percy who had
gone white at Willow's words "Who's Buffy?" He asked Percy
curiously.

"I thought she was dead…"Percy muttered softly, looking down. "We
all did." Percy, too, then crumpled to the floor in a faint. Matt
and Jeff looked at each other, bewildered, and then Jeff picked up
the phone that was still on and asked "Hi, Who's Buffy?"

"I'm Buffy." A confused girl's voice stated. "Who are you?"
"Jeff. Listen Buffy, I don't know who you are, but whatever
you just said made Willow AND Percy faint. Who are you? Why'd Willow
react so strongly?"

"Oh er… um… well…" Buffy stuttered. "I'm er… Willow's
Friend. I had er, been in an accident and everyone thought I was
dead. But I wasn't. I'm back and safe now, see? That's what shocked
Willow. Is she ok? Now, I need you to answer a question… Who the
heck are YOU?"
"Jeff Hardy. I work with Willow. She's been amazing with our
computer systems here."


"Yea, Willow's quite the Computer Wiz. Is she ok?"

Jeff looked down to the red head who was slowly opening her
beautiful, emerald green eyes.

"Yea, I think she's ok… Still seems rather shocked though.
She's had a hard day or two."

"Well, no more hard days for my Willow." Buffy stated firmly
into the phone. "Put her back on the phone if she's awake. I was
calling her because I wanted to find out when to make plane
reservations. We want Willow to come home as soon as possible."

"Here." Jeff listlessly handed Willow the phone and looked
at her curiously as the green eyed girl took it. I can't believe
she's going home. He thought, dejectedly. I had just gotten to know
her.

Willow eyed Jeff thoughtfully as she took the phone. He
looks so sad. Wonder why? She resolved to find out after she got off
the phone.
"Buffy. You freaked me out girl. Why didn't the others tell
me you were coming back?" She phrased her words carefully, and
glanced over at Percy who was slowly coming too. "You scared me and
Percy to DEATH."

"Well, I didn't mean to. I shoulda known it would have been
such a shock, sorry about that." Buffy said, and then paused before
continuing. "You know, that Jeff guy has a cute voice. Is he a
hottie?"

"Mmmm yea." Willow replied glancing at Jeff with a small
smile.

"Well its to bad you didn't get him while you had a chance
girl, seeing as your coming home as soon as we can get you a flight."

"I'm WHAT?" Willow asked, slightly confused. "Buffy, just
cause your back doesn't mean I can come home. I have to work, we
need money. Or did you not see all the bills piled up at your
mailbox."

"But you paid all those Will." Buffy said. "Xan said the
money you sent home covered all of it, and then some. You can come
home asap. Isn't that great?"

"Xander NEVER told me the bills had all been payed!" Willow
screeched into the phone. "Why didn't he tell me?"

"He didn't?" Buffy asked, confused. "There's this great new
couch, and a big screen TV and all sorts of new stuff. He said that
your money had MORE than covered everything. There's even enough for
a ticket for you to come home. You do want to come home don't you?"

"Buffy, I'd love to see home again. But no one told me the
bills were all paid. And Xander did NOT have permission to spend all
my money. I had sent money for Dawnie, and for bills. Who said a
word about a TV?"

"Oh Willow, cool down" Buffy said soothingly as she clicked
some gum in Willow's ear. "The TV and stuff is just really nice to
have, you know? Xan meant well. And, Dawnie likes the TV."

"Put Xander on the phone. Now." Willow's eyes narrowed
dangerously as she talked into the phone.

"Hey Willow, so can we book you a flight for tomorrow?"
Xander asked into the phone cheerfully.

"XANDER HARRIS! How DARE you just go out and spend the money
I send home any way you please. That was for bills and for Dawn. Not
for TVs and god knows what else. And how dare you just assume that
I'll go running back home the minute you guys want me too? I am not
your beck and call girl. If you want a beck and call girl you better
be talking to Anya! I have a job to do here, and a contract! I'm not
even halfway done and you've already spent most of the money from
it! There's only a LITTLE money left! Why didn't you tell me you
payed the bills? I'd have kept some money in savings so that we
wouldn't be in a bind again. Xander I'm so mad I could SCREAM right
now. You lot are just… big old USERS. I go, find a job, and YOU
spend the MONEY! I worked hard for that! And hard for all of you!
Have I heard one thank you yet? Not a ONE!"

Willow paused for breath and listened to Xander's shocked silence on
the other end of the phone. She had never, ever exploded to Xander.
Well ok, there was the "YOUR KISSING CORDY!" Moment. But, other than
that, nothing major.

"Xander Harris, I'm so mad at you lot it isn't funny. I'm the only
one making ANY kind of cash for the group, and you all are spending
it like its going out of style. And then you just expect me to drop
everything and act all happy about life. Life is work Xander.
Someone has to pay bills. YOU certainly are not. Buffy, well,
Buffy's been dead! So she hasn't! Let's not even talk about your
little Miss Spender, Anya. We SO don't want to go down that road.
So, Xan, you can save yourself some time by NOT buying me a plane
ticket. I have at least a 3 month contract here that I can not
break. I have to go now, I have WORK to do. Later."

Willow clicked the phone and sent it flying across the room, then
clenched her fists, and started to mutter furiously. She stood up
and glanced at the guys, her eyes furious.

"I have to go blow off steam." She announced, and then stalked out
the room door.

Jeff and Percy gazed at each other in confusion then Jeff quipped
happily "I guess this means Willow is NOT going home!" Jeff paused a
moment and then asked. "Why did you guys think Buffy was dead?"

It has been about a month since Willow told Xander and her friends
off. She felt a little bad about it, but she was standing firm for
once. Her friends would no longer be walking all over her; Willow
Rosenburg had her own life to lead. Willow and Percy had taken turns
telling Jeff a highly edited version of their life in Sunnydale,
California, and Jeff seemed to take the idea of Magic and Vampires
in stride. She smiled at the thought of Jeff. He was an impressive
guy.

Willow and Jeff had started dating, and were getting closer every
day. She was also slowly meeting the other members of the WWE as she
was fixing computers, and she found, to her surprise, that she liked
almost every member of the company. The people in the WWE were
mostly a close nit group of people, almost like a family, who were
highly committed to giving fans entertainment.

The WWE was currently in Las Vegas for the week and Willow was
bouncing up and down because she and the girls were going out for a
night on the town. She had never had a chance to gamble, and,
despite the fact that it was nighttime, Willow figured that there
were safety in numbers from the vampires that roamed the night.


Willow looked herself over in the mirror one last time. None of her
friends would have recognized her at this point. Willow was wearing
a pair of green leather pants that were cut low at the hip, and a
tight, black, leather tank top. Her vampire self would have been
proud! She had dark makeup, and her hair had black streaks carefully
braided in by one of the hair and makeup girls. Willow liked the
black braids. They made her hair different, without her actually
having to dye it.

"You ready to paint the town red?" Tori asked Willow as she walked
into the room.

"Of course!" Willow grinned happily at Tori, grabbed her purse, and
locked her hotel room door.

A few hours later Willow, Tori, and Lita found themselves all
sitting in front of slot machines. Willow would take her time
putting her money in, and then she would carefully caress the handle
of the slot machine while whispering a prayer to the Goddess for
luck. Then she's slide her hand up and down the handle and pull.

"If I didn't know any better, I'd swear that you enjoyed that. Got a
fetish I should know about?" Lita asked Willow teasingly.

"No, I just like doing things a certain way." Willow grinned back at
Lita. "It hasn't hurt any; I'm up $500 tonight."

"Damn girl, what are you doing?! I wanta win that kind of money!"
Lita grinned.

"Actually Willow, you seem to be bringing good luck. Let's go hit
the blackjack tables!" Tori giggled, as she grabbed Willow's arm and
dragged her off in the direction of the Blackjack tables.
Two hours and a couple of winnings later, the girls decided that it
was time to meet the boys for dancing.


When they got there, it seemed the boys had started without them.
Matt, Christen, and Edge were all dancing with girls from the club.
Jeff, however, was intently searching for Willow, and a broad grin
broke over his face when he saw her.


"Willow!" He cried happily, and then grabbed her up in his arms and
kissed her. He spun her around until she began to laugh.

"Did somebody miss me?" She asked teasingly as she ran her hands
down his strong back.

"You better believe it baby." He kissed the tip of her nose
tenderly.

"He was completely useless." Matt walked over, a random blond on his
arm. "All he could do was wait for you."

"Aww, Jeffie, its nice to know you care." Willow smiled, and then
kissed him again.

"Get a room!" Tori catcalled teasingly.

"What a brilliant idea Tori. We have a perfectly good hotel room,
let's go use it Willow!" Jeff picked Willow up and started towards
the door. Willow clung to him laughing helplessly and called
out "I'll see you tomorrow guys!"


********************************************************************

When Willow and Jeff arrived at the lobby of the hotel they were
staying at the desk clerk stopped them.

"Miss, I just wanted to let you know, someone dropped off these
flowers for you. We couldn't find you, so they're here at the desk."

Willow turned to Jeff and smiled. He shook his head slowly,
indicating that he didn't buy the large, brightly colored vase of
flowers. She frowned a bit after and looked about, clearly confused.

"There is a card, miss." The man stated, and handed it to her.

"Thank you." Willow replied.

She read
sorry I am about all the fighting… and you'll find a check enclosed
for the money I spent… Please forgive your bestest buds? Life's no
fun without you. Love, Xander>


Willow looked at the flowers, looked at the check, and tears formed
in her eyes.

"When did they get here?" She asked the clerk.

"A man in a Hawaiian shirt brought them about three hours ago. He
asked where you were and when I called the room, and then said you
were out, he went to the hotel bar."

"Was anyone else with him?"

"No, he was alone."

"I have to go talk to him." Willow said to Jeff. "Xander's my best
friend. I can't just leave him there."

"Right, you need to go see him." Jeff kissed Willow and
smiled. "I'll be upstairs."

Willow kissed Jeff back, and went to face her best friend.

Willow paused in the doorway of the lounge, and let her eyes adjust
to the dim light. After a minute of squinting, she saw Xander
sitting on a bar stool. His whole body showed signs of dejection.
His shoulders were slumped, his hair was down in his eyes, and he
looked as if he hadn't shaved for a while. Willow's eyes softened
slightly at the sight of her best friend's pain. What he had done
was wrong, but he knew it… and she was glad that he had admitted it.
All she had wanted was for the gang to acknowledge that she had been
being used all along, and that she had been struggling so hard for
the good of the group.

Xander didn't even look up when Willow slid into the chair next to
him. He just played with the label on the beer bottle, and continued
to stare down till Willow touched his knee.

"Hi Xander." Willow said softly to him. "I wasn't expecting to see
you here."

"I couldn't not be here." Xander said softly, raising his warm, pain
filled eyes up to Willow's face. "I'm so sorry for everything that's
happened Willow. I didn't mean to use you. The others didn't either.
I never, ever, in a million years meant to hurt my bestest bud.
Please, forgive the Xan-man?"

"Already forgiven Xander. All you had to do was ask." Willow said,
wrapping her arms around Xander for a long needed hug.

Xander's wide smile reached all the way to his eyes, and he hugged
Willow to himself, hard. "Next time I'm being an idiot, just thwap
me ok?" He asked playfully.

"Sure Xander." Willow grinned up at her best friend, relieved.

"So, will you come home to us now, Wills?" Xander asked his voice
wishful and full of a little lost puppy dog quality.

"Xan, about that coming home bit…" Willow bit her lip and sighed. "I
have a life HERE now… Sunnydale isn't my whole world anymore. I have
Jeff, and the girls, and my friends, and my contract. I can't just
leave. It doesn't mean I don't love all of you, its just that being
research girl isn't my whole life anymore. I can still be research
girl by email, when there is a need, but I'm truly happy with my
life as it is. I can't go back, I've grown too much. I'm needed
here."

"I guess I can understand that Wills." Xander sighed, and then
smiled. "As long as I still have my bestest bud I guess I'll live."
Xander kissed Willow on the forehead and Willow grinned up at him.
He paused for a moment then asked, "Hey Wills? Who's Jeff?"

"Come and meet him!" Willow beamed happily "He's my boyfriend, the
most wonderful man on the face of the earth… And he's THE Jeff
Hardy!"

"Man! Willow! You sure know how to pick them!" Xander laughed. "You
think he'd give me an autograph?"

"There is only one way to find out!" Willow grinned at her best
friend since childhood. "Common, he's upstairs waiting." She linked
arms with Xander and pulled him towards the elevator. She was so
happy that Xander had accepted the fact that she was staying in the
WWE world. And that her two worlds were finally going to become one.
Could life truly get any better than this?
