“Close, but no cigar,” Faith sighed. “No Council. No Slayers. Not even a Sunnydale.”
Xander nodded in agreement. “None of the websites we usually use. Demons Demons Demons doesn’t exist, and the only references to vampires I can find are in horror movies.”
“So what are we doing here?” Xander just shrugged and pushed through the library doors out into the street. “Let's look around. Whatever it is will probably find us.”
“Maybe we should try looking for a wizard, so we don’t have to rely on that stupid portal.”
Xander nodded. “I’m game.”
“I don’t like bein’ jerked around by the friggin’ powers. Let ‘em solve their own problems for a change.”
“Suits me.” He looked around. “So… Where do we begin?”
On a world that, by all appearances, lacked demons and champions to fight them, finding a wizard proved difficult. Eventually, though, they found a small storefront with an intriguing sign on the door. They watched the place from across the street.
“Think it’s worth a shot?”
“We got nothin’ better to do,” Faith pointed out. “What are the odds, though, that a genuine wizard would advertise like that?” she asked, nodding at the sign on the door. “Probably some kook or con man.”
“I guess. Even back home, did we ever see someone put ‘Wizard’ on their front door? Suppose he has business cards? An add in the yellow pages?” Faith just shrugged. “Nothing to lose I guess. Lets go talk to this Dresden guy.”
