Chapter One - First Patrol

First Patrol

Dawn was sitting at the kitchen counter finishing a bowl of cereal.

“Dawny, should you be eating this late? It’s almost ten.”

“Don't see why not. It’s not like it’s going to spoil my breakfast.”

“You didn’t get enough at supper? You didn’t like it?”

“It was fine, Willow. Not my favorite, but it was okay.”

“But I thought you liked . . . .”

“It was FINE. I just wasn’t that hungry. I ate a snack when I got home from school, and I guess I just ate too much and wasn’t that hungry at supper.”

“Well, okay then. You weren’t planning on waiting up for us, were you? ‘Cause it’ll probably be pretty late when we get in.”

“Buffy’s first patrol since her vampification. You think she’s nervous?”

“I don't see why she should be. It’ll be just the same as it always was, except for her extra strength, and extra speed, and extra keen hearing, and extra sharp night vision, and extra sensitive sense of smell. Other than that, just the same as always.”

“You don't think she’ll have any problem staking vamps, do you? I mean, it’s kind of like they’re her, you know, undead brothers and sisters.”

“I’m sure she’ll do just fine.”

They were silent for a few moments.

“She’ll be down in a few minutes.” Willow answered Dawn’s unasked question.

“Willow, you’re the most powerful witch in the world, right?”

“Well, I don't know about that.”

“Everyone says you are – Buffy, Xander, Giles.”

“So what’s you point?”

“Since you are so powerful, why can’t you unvampify Buffy? I mean, it can’t be as hard as putting someone’s soul back into their body, or brain, or wherever it goes.”

Willow gave Dawn a small, patient smile.

“I thought I explained that once before. But since it’s obvious you have forgotten, I’ll go over it one more time. Just because I have all this power doesn't mean a thing if I don't know how to use it. When I re-ensouled Angel, it was because Miss Calendar had already done all the work. She did the research, translated the ancient writings, put everything into the proper context, did everything necessary to make sure the spell was correct. And if Angel hadn’t . . . .”

Willow took a breath.

“If Angelus hadn’t killed her, she would have done the spell, not me. And when I put Buffy’s soul back in, I based it on what she had done. But I have absolutely no idea of even how to begin to turn a vampire back into a human. There are no texts or manuscripts that do more than just speculate on it. To my knowledge no one’s even come close to figuring it out.”

“Figuring what out?” Buffy asked as she walked into the kitchen.

“How to turn a vamp back into a human.” Dawn answered.

“Oh. Well, if you do, you be sure to let me know.”

“You about ready to go?” Willow asked, uncomfortable talking about it in front of Buffy, and not wanting to continue.

“Ready as I can be. Dawn, make sure you’re in bed by eleven. You have school tomorrow.”

“Willow already told me. You think you’ll be out late?”

“There’s no telling. But we’ll be quiet when we get back so we won’t wake you up. And no, you can’t go.”

“I wasn’t going to ask.”

“No, but you were thinking it.”
