I Do Not Own BtVS or Babylon 5
Buffy stepped down onto the landing and watched as Xander stood still and he stared out the living room window of the Summers home. He had a slight smile on his face, as if he kept some hidden joke from the rest of the world while he watched the comings and goings of the Halloween inclined.
“Good evening, Miss Summers. Your dress is very… awe inspiring.” Xander said in a shallow tone as he continued to stare out the window.
Blinking in shock Buffy finally grinned as she saw him glance into the reflection of the window with a smirk.
“Ha ha. Very funny. Who are you supposed to be anyway?” Buffy asked as she took in the black uniform, complete with boots and gloves, the only point standing out from the dark clothes was a single badge on his left breast.
Turning to face her, Xander made a small bow. “I am called many things, most of them by Mister Garibaldi and most of them not very nice, but my friends simply call me Alfred.” Xander said in the same tone that both mocked and assured at the same time. “Now if our little ghost will come down the stairs I’m sure we can get on our way.”
“Hate to disappoint you Alfy but tonight Willow ’s dressing as...” Buffy announced as her friend stepped down to stand beside her in her ghost costume. “ Casper .” Buffy finished with a sigh.
“An amazing distinction, Miss Summers. Miss Rosenberg, a very impressive BOO you have there” Xander said as Willow bounced under the cloth.
“You Got it.” Willow squeaked as Xander simply nodded.
Looking between the two, Buffy finally voiced her confusion. “I don’t get it, who is he?” she asked as the two females walked down to stand beside their dark haired friend.
With a sigh, Xander hung his head as the three walked out towards the school. “His name is Alfred Bester and he’s only one of the best villains ever created. How can you not know about Babylon 5?”
It was going to be an interesting night.
