Summary: When Buffy ran away to LA she is confronted with a life she never knew about. She is thrown into a world and a war that was always meant to be hers but was stripped from her as a baby.

Disclaimer: I do not own Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Harry Potter. This story is just for entertainment value and nothing more.

Timeline: After Season 2 of Buffy and starts where book 5 of Harry Potter would have started but after those points this story is completely AU. Harry and Buffy are both 16 (before you say anything I know this is wrong according to the show and books but this is my story and it fits my purpose better if they are 16)

Pairing: Harry/Buffy, Hermione/Ron, Willow/Oz and Xander/Cordelia

(AN: Thank you to everybody that is reading my story and another special thanks to everybody that has reviewed my story. I am so sorry it has taken so long to update. I have no good excuse for taking so long but my computer with the story on it crashed and when we finally got it back up I was busy with college (I decided to go back to school yay me hehe). Again I am truly sorry for the delay and I hope you will forgive me. I hope you like this chapter, if not I am willing to take it down and redo it. Have a lovely day, I love you guys and you rock.)

Chapter 20


Buffy scrambled out of her bed and rushed off to find Harry and Giles. As she was rushing out of her bedroom door she ran smack dab into her fiancé’s chest.

“Harry!” Buffy cried as she flung herself at him clutching onto him for dear life, “It happened again,” She sobbed.

“I know, I saw it too,” Harry rubbed soothing circles on her back.

“We have to find Giles,” She pulled away from him quickly and rushed off in the direction of her ‘fathers’ room.

Pounding on the door Buffy called for him, “Giles!!! Giles!!! GILES!!!”

Buffy’s desperate calls for Giles woke most of the people in the house up but Giles had yet to answer the door. Buffy tried to open the door but it wouldn’t open.

“Harry what is going on?” Sirius questioned.

“We had a dream about Giles and Voldemort,” Harry turned to Buffy, “Can’t you just break it down?”

Buffy motioned for everybody to move out of her way and she did a powerful roundhouse kick to the door; the door busted apart into little pieces. She ran in frantically looking for him.

“Where is he?” Buffy searched through out the room looking in every possible spot he could be, “He isn’t here, we have to search the rest of the house,” Buffy hysterically cried.

Buffy frantically searched the whole house with the help of the other occupants of the house and couldn’t find Giles anywhere. While most searched the house for Giles, Hermione sent an owl to Dumbledore.

“Damn it,” Buffy roared, “He has him! He has Giles.”

“It’s okay Buffy,” Willow tried to soothe her best friend; “We’ll get Giles back.”

“No it’s not going to be alright,” Buffy whispered, “He already killed my mother, he can’t, no he won’t kill Giles too; I won’t allow it.”

“We’ll figure it out Buffy,” Xander tried to comfort.

“You’re right it will be okay,” Buffy’s face changed into a determined look as she marched to her room leaving a confused group behind.

“What is she doing?” Mrs. Weasley asked worriedly.

“I don’t know but I don’t think it is going to be good,” Xander stated as he stared at the spot Buffy disappeared from seconds ago.

Buffy was back in a few minutes; she had already changed into a tight pair of black leather pants, a tight fitting sparkly blue tank top, a black leather duster and a pair of black leather high heeled boots. She had a few stakes stashed in various places around her body, a dagger on an arm holster and one in her boot. She had a dagger in the waist of her pants, a sword on her back in a holster and a crossbow also slung over her back. Her hair was up in a messy bun and her wand placed in it securely.

“Buffy what are you doing?” Mrs. Weasley was the first to notice Buffy’s return.

“I’m going to get him back,” Buffy stated calmly, “And they aren’t going to surprise me this time.”

“Buffy you cannot go rushing in half cocked,” Xander cut in, “That will only get you killed with him,” Xander cut himself off quickly at Buffy’s sharp look, “I didn’t mean that he is going to get killed.”

“I’m not half cocked, I am fully cocked. I know exactly what I am going to do and nobody is going to stop me,” Buffy stated firmly, “I’m going to get Giles back and kick dear ole papa’s ass.”

Nobody noticed Harry slip upstairs to change. He emerged into the kitchen dressed and ready to go save his fiancé’s watcher.

“What do you think you are doing Harry?” Buffy demanded.

“I’m going with you,” Harry’s nonchalant reply came.

“No you’re not,” Buffy argued, “I’m not taking the chance of losing anybody else. I’m going, getting Giles back and then I’m going to destroy Voldemort.”

“You promised me you wouldn’t go after him on your own if at all possible. You promised me that we were going to take him down together and I’m not letting you go back on that promise. You cannot go after him and all his death eaters on your own and I’m not going to lose you,” Harry stated matter-of-factly.

“Neither of you are going,” Sirius informed the couple.

“I can’t leave him there,” Buffy sobbed, “You didn’t see it, they were torturing…” Buffy sobbed louder. She paused for a minute and collected her self, she started again in a calm voice, “They are torturing him to get me and I’m not going to leave him there. He is my watcher…my mentor…he is my father in every meaning of the word that counts. I am not going to leave him there on account of me; I will not allow anymore deaths to happen because he wants me. Can’t you guys understand that?”

“We do understand, dear girl, but we can’t let you go alone,” Dumbledore soothed as he stepped into the room, “Giles would never forgive us if we let something happen to you.”

“I will never forgive myself if something happened to Giles. This is my calling, this is my duty, I go and save the day and this time is not going to be any different. I don’t have time to argue this…Giles doesn’t have time for us to argue this. So you better tell me a better plan then me going in there to kick some ass and you better tell me quick ‘cause in about five minutes I am walking out that door and I am going to go get Giles,” Buffy passionately declared.

“We are going to call the Order members and we will set up a rescue mission,” Dumbledore soothed.

Buffy’s shoulders sagged in defeat and reluctantly gave in, “Fine…but I want in on the rescue mission.”

“I think it would be wiser if all the children stayed her with me,” Mrs. Weasley offered.

“No, they have demons and vampires on their side now and that is my specialty. I am going end of story, besides I’m in danger everyday of my life it’s no biggie,” Buffy argued.

“Buffy will come with us but the rest will stay here,” Dumbledore stated firmly.

“I’m not going to let Buffy go out there by herself,” Harry’s indignant cry was heard.

“Neither are we, we go fight the baddies with Buffy all the time,” Xander stood up in protest along with Willow, Oz and even Cordelia.

“Unfortunately, this isn’t the same as it is in Sunnydale; you guys will be unable to protect yourself from the death eaters. There is no way you guys can come with us,” Buffy shook her head.

“Fine,” Xander dejectedly sat back down with the rest of the Scooby gang.

“I’m still coming with, I am not letting my fiancé go out there without me by her side,” Harry stubbornly crossed his arms over his chest.

Buffy took Harry by the hand and led him to an empty room, “Harry I’m not going to do anything stupid, I won’t go after Voldemort on my own but you have to stay here. They aren’t going to let you come…you’re too important to the outcome of this war that is brewing, but this is something I have to do, I have to save him…he would do it for me,” Buffy pleaded with Harry to understand and to relent.

“You promise me you will be careful and have somebody with you at all times?” Harry hugged her to him tightly and kissed her forehead.

“She’ll have me to watch her back,” Sirius walked into the room, “We have to protect family after all.”

”Somehow that isn’t as comforting as you might think,” Harry teased, “You are about as rational as she is,” Harry gave Sirius a small smile.

“That means together we add up to one perfectly rational person,” Sirius teased.

“From my dream it appears that they are still at Malfoy Manor,” Buffy stated, “I guess that makes sense daddy dearest wants to make sure I know where to go.”

“What is the plan?” Moody inquired.

“I was thinking that I would show up, appearing to be alone, then once I am in the house you guys will break up into smaller groups and enter in a few places so you can hit them from all sides. We have to make sure they lead me to Giles first though,” Buffy stated.

“There is no way we are letting you go anywhere by yourself,” Mrs. Weasley looked horrified at the mere mention of it.

“It would set up for a surprise attack,” Buffy argued back.

“I must agree with Miss Summers,” Snape interjected.

“Professor I think it would be best if you stayed behind,” Buffy said worriedly, “Voldemort is going to be gunning for you since you helped me escape last time.”

“I certainly will not,” Snape looked affronted at the thought.

“I think Buffy is right,” Dumbledore agreed, “He would most likely go after you the most ruthlessly for your betrayal.”

Snape huffed and scowled at the two.

“We will need the lay out of the Manor and that is where you will be most helpful Severus. You could give us different entry points and the most likely places they would keep Rupert,” Dumbledore tried to comfort his colleague.

“I can’t let you go in by yourself Buffy I promised Harry I would be by your side the whole time,” Sirius interjected.

“If I show up with anybody they are sure to realize there are more. We can’t risk it and it’s not like he is going to kill me, he wants me alive remember?” Buffy tried to reason with the group, “Plus I won’t be alone for long you guys will be right behind me.”

“I believe that it might be the best option at this point,” Shacklebolt offered his opinion, “It is sure to distract You-Know-Who and the death esters.”

“Good, it’s a plan,” Buffy stood up quickly, “I have plenty of weapons if anybody wants to load up on anything besides wands.”

Shacklebolt, Remus and Sirius were the only ones to take Buffy up on her offer. They loaded themselves up with a stakes, swords and axes. Remus even took a crossbow. Besides weapons and wands each member of the group were given a port key so they could port key out in case of an emergency and or they retrieved Giles.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

“Please, watch out for her, she doesn’t have the magical knowledge to go up against Voldemort and his minions,” Harry begged Sirius.

“I will protect her with everything I have,” Sirius tried to comfort his godson; “I know how much she means to you. She means a lot to me too. She has this aura about her that makes you want to protect her, doesn’t she?”

“Yeah she does,” Harry let a small smile form on his lips, “She even has Draco and Snape looking out for her. It’s a miracle to have one of them doing something like that but both of them is unthinkable.”

Sirius and Harry laughed at that as they both lapsed into silence thinking about the petite blonde.

“I hope you guys get Giles back in one piece, I think she will break beyond repair if she loses anybody else right now. I don’t even think I could help her if he were to die tonight,” Harry whispered in despair.

“That lass is a tough one,” Moody appeared out of nowhere, “I think she can take a lot more then you give her credit for. She has a fighting spirit about her. She can handle anything that bastard throws at her and then some. She is too strong and stubborn to let somebody like him break her.”

“I know she is capable of enduring enormous amounts of pain and torture he might cause her but I don’t think she can handle anybody else she cares about dying,” Harry paused, “She thinks it is her fault.”

“We will make sure Giles makes it out of this more or less in tact,” Sirius’s determination eased some of Harry’s tension. With that statement the three men gathered with the rest of the group.

“Watch your back,” Oz’s monotone voice was heard.

“I will Oz,” Buffy smiled at her friend.

“Yea Buff, you better come back to us in one piece,” Xander threw his arm around her shoulders.

“And kick some ass,” Willow jumped in excitedly.

“Don’t break a nail,” Cordelia piped up.

“I’ll be fine you guys,” Buffy tried to comfort her friends; “It will be a piece of cake.”

Harry walked up to Buffy and swept her up in his arms. He gave her a passionate kiss that earned a few cat whistles from the twins and Sirius.

“Remember your promise to me,” He leaned his forehead against hers, “Come back to me.”

“I will. I love you,” Buffy whispered as she gave him another kiss.

“Love you too,” Harry smiled down at her.

The rescue team then gathered around the port key and disappeared.

“Do you think Giles will be okay?” Willow asked quietly.

“Of course, they all will, they have the Buffster on their side,” Xander piped up, “She can get anything done when she puts her mind to it.”

“I hope she doesn’t do anything stupid,” Harry whispered.

“Don’t worry Harry, she seems to always figure out how to get out of sticky situations while saving everybody,” Willow tried to comfort.

“I think you children should go get some rest,” Molly stated, “It will probably be awhile until they return.”

“I’m not going to sleep while she could be in trouble,” Harry stubbornly sat down in the living room in a comfy chair.

Ron shrugged his shoulders, “I’m with Harry,” He sat down next to Harry, “You want to play a game of Wizard’s chess, mate?”

Harry looked up at Ron and slowly nodded. The rest of the teens all gathered in the living room to pass the time as they waited anxiously for their friend to return.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Buffy and the group arrived a little ways from the manor. Buffy failed to stay on her feet yet again.

“I hate your transportation; I’ll never get use to it,” Buffy wiped herself off quickly, “Okay I’ll go first and once they take me in come after me a few minutes later.” She waited for confirmation from the rest then she took off.

As she approached the door to the manor multiple death eaters and vampires popped up all around her.

“What? A welcome party just for me?” Buffy quipped.

A few vampires started circling her waiting for an opening to take her down for their master. One lunged at Buffy’s legs which she easily jumped over.

“Is that really all you’ve got?” Buffy taunted the vampires.

The vampire on the ground quickly got up and threw a punch at Buffy’s head. She quickly grabbed his arm and used his momentum to throw him into one of his companions that was starting to charge her, knocking them both down. One of the wizards shot a binding spell at her which she dodged, letting it fly over her head hitting one of the vampires behind her. He fell to the ground from the curse that caused his body to stiffen completely.

“I haven’t even broken a sweat yet,” Buffy shot a stupefy spell at one of the wizards knocking him out cold, “You guys aren’t going to take me by force this time boys. You should bring Voldy out right now so I can have a little chat with the evil son of a bitch.”

“How dare you speak about him so disrespectfully,” A female voice shrieked. That same one then threw a cruciatus curse at Buffy. Buffy couldn’t dodge it completely and fell to her knees in pain, but she quickly forced herself back to her feet. She gritted her teeth and dusted a vampire that was sneaking up behind her.

“Take the curse off of her now Bellatrix,” Voldemort’s voiced boomed behind the group.

“She was saying awful things about you My Lord,” Bellatrix tried to argue.

“I said take the curse off of her NOW!!!” Voldemort roared.

Bellatrix followed orders and then bowed to Voldemort. Buffy sighed in relief the second the curse was lifted. She swayed a little bit but quickly backed handed another vampire that was sneaking up on her.

“I want Giles back now,” Buffy ordered.

“I will be happy to release him if you would like to trade places with the pitiful muggle,” He hissed.

“I’ve fallen for that one before,” Buffy did a roundhouse kick to another vampire she was fighting, “You didn’t follow through with your promise.”

“Smart girl,” He seemed to beam with pride.

“What can I say,” Buffy did a backwards flip snagging one vampire in the chin with her heel, “I’m not as blonde as I act.”

“I will leave all your family and friends alone if you stand by me,” Voldemort coolly informed his daughter.

“Never gonna happen,” Buffy staked another vampire causing him to burst into dust, leaving only three more.

“Why must you be so difficult Isabella?” He roared in frustration, “I am your father, does that mean anything to you?”

“The only thing it means to me is that I have to work hard to make sure you are destroyed before you can cause any more pain. It means that it is my responsibility, more so then any other time before, to take you down,” Buffy ducked under a sloppy punch from one of the vampires and quickly jabbed him with her stake causing him to explode in to dust particles.

“Crucio,” Hissed Voldemort.

Buffy fell to her knees once more. She fought not to scream out in pain this time. Her limbs were weakening from the power behind Voldemort’s curse and since this was the second curse her poor body had to withstand in such a short time it was really wearing her down. She still was able to push herself up onto shaky legs and force them to become steady.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

“What are we doing? We need to go help her?” Sirius whispered harshly.

“Come down Sirius, she will be alright. If she can’t handle it she will let us know,” Dumbledore tried to calm the anxious man down.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Buffy continued to fight the vampires still under the cruciatus curse. She did a powerful jump kick to one of the remaining two vampires’ chest but she was so weak that she fell to the ground along with the vampire. She slowly made it back to her feet. She dusted the vampire quickly and then collapsed to the ground from the curse.

“Have you had enough my darling daughter?” Voldemort walked closer to Buffy, “Will you stand beside me?”

Buffy gritted her teeth and flipped to her stomach slowly pushing herself up with her arms. Voldemort crouched down in front of her as she pushed herself on all four. She looked him in the eyes with firer in her eyes.

“You can torture me all you want but I will never…” Buffy paused in pain, “Stand by your side.”

Voldemort released Buffy from the curse and stood in frustration, “I must say I am impressed with you, Isabella, you stick to your beliefs and you don’t back down but why must you fight me?”

“I guess I’m just ornery that way,” Buffy panted trying to regain her strength.

“Capture her,” Voldemort roared.

Buffy finished standing and dusted the last vampire that was trying to capture her for Voldemort. She ducked under a curse thrown at her and shot a stupefy curse back at the death eater, knocking him out. The numbers were against her but she fought valiantly. She knocked out four more death eaters and broke two more death eaters’ legs before she was finally hit with a petrifying curse.

Voldemort levitated Buffy into the house.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

“Does everybody know which entry point they are going to use?” Dumbledore questioned. Everybody nodded their heads in confirmation, “Good let’s go.”

The groups separated into their individual teams and located their entry points. All of the groups quickly and silently entered the manor.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Buffy was exhausted from all the spells she had to fight off but she tapped into her remaining strength and slowly broke the petrifying curse. Once she shook off the remainders of the curse she quickly did a backwards flip out of the levitation spell landing safely on her feet in a crouch.

“I want Giles NOW!!!” Buffy demanded as a burst of power came from her knocking all the surrounding villains down to the ground.

Voldemort slowly pulled himself back to his feet, “It seems like your power is increasing sweetheart.”

“Don’t call me sweetheart,” Buffy gritted out between her teeth, “Now where is Giles.”

“Follow me,” Voldemort ordered.

Buffy stiffly followed Voldemort; she was surrounded by all of his minions. Buffy was on her guard waiting for a strike to come from any direction. She hoped that the Order was near by to follow in the shadows; otherwise she was on her own to get Giles out of harms way.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

“How did she break the spell?” Sirius whispered to Dumbledore in amazement.

“She is very powerful and has an inner strength that would astonish anybody,” Dumbledore whispered back with a twinkle in his eyes.

The three different groups followed quietly hoping that their surprise arrival wouldn’t be ruined.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

“Here is your precious watcher,” Voldemort hissed in disgust at the relationship his daughter had with a muggle, “I will let him leave if you stay in his place.”

“Neither of them are going to stay Tom,” Dumbledore’s voice boomed through the room, “They both are coming with us.”

All of a sudden spells started to fly everywhere you looked. Bright colorful streams of powerful curses and spells shot pass various heads and body parts. Buffy quickly made her way over to Giles and activated the port key placing it in Giles’ hand. He looked up dazed to see Buffy disappear along with the other scenery.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Giles reappeared in number twelve Grimmauld Place in front of ten anxious teens and one surprised Molly Weasley.

“Giles!!!” Willow cried as she rushed over to the tortured form of Rupert Giles, “Are you okay?”

“I am as fine as can be expected,” Giles moaned, “Where’s Buffy?”

“We were going to ask you the same thing,” Xander joined the conversation.

“Last I saw was when she thrust the hairbrush into my hand and everything disappeared,” Giles murmured in pain, “She looked pretty exhausted and beaten up.”

“What was happening? Do you remember?” Harry asked worriedly.

“There were curses being cast everywhere,” Giles mumbled.

“Okay children move let me look at Mister Giles,” Molly ordered.

Molly quickly patched Giles up as much as she could and then ordered Fred and George to take him up to his room to rest.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Dumbledore and Voldemort were locked in a vicious duel without a clear winner as of yet. Alastor Moody had already knocked two death eaters unconscious and was now dueling with his third. Remus was fighting back to back with Shacklebolt fairing pretty well against the death eaters they were up against.

Buffy was fighting three new vampires. She quickly dusted one of them but was sent back flying from a powerful kick to her chest, she was sure a few ribs were broken in the process. Jumping to her feet she backhanded a vampire coming after her sending him flying a few feet. Spinning around she dusted a second one with a quick jab to the chest. The third one was back in the fight and Buffy was starting to tire from all the strain her body had recently gone through. The fight lasted longer then it should have with the vampire gaining the upper hand. He had her arm pinned behind her back possibly breaking it or at least dislocating it. She head butted him causing him to loosen his grip on her arm making it easy for her to spin away from him. Making sure to cradle her hurt arm close to her, she then did a roundhouse kick to his face causing his neck to turn to the side with extreme force. Right when she was about to dust him she was caught by another cruciatus curse, which she was completely unprepared for. She couldn’t hold back her cry of agony this time. Buffy fell to her knees trying to overcome the pain and get back to her feet. Tears started to flow down her cheeks unbidden. Then all of a sudden the pain was gone and she could think clearly again. Buffy stayed on the ground for a few more minutes trying to regain her bearings. She looked around and saw that Sirius had saved her from Bellatrix and now he was in a grueling duel with the evil vixen. Buffy quickly dispatched of her last vampire and went to help Sirius.

As Buffy approached the dueling duo she heard two dreaded words leave Bellatrix mouth, “Avada Kadvra.”

Buffy put on an extra burst of speed she didn’t know she still had at the moment and pushed Sirius out of the way taking the spell full force to the chest. The occupants of the room sudden stopped as they all realized what happened.

“NOOOOOO!!!!” Voldemort and Sirius cried out in unison.

Bellatrix froze when she realized what she did. She killed Voldemort’s daughter, she fell to her knees in horror of her actions.

Sirius was the closest to her and he quickly felt for a pulse. He looked up in Dumbledore's direction in shocked relief.

“She’s alive,” Sirius whispered.

Voldemort was rushing to his daughter when all of a sudden Dumbledore cried out, “Everybody go NOW!!!”

In a flash the order members disappeared.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Sirius arrived first crouching and with an unconscious Buffy cradled in his arms. Harry was the first to notice him. He had terror written all over his face as he rushed to the two new arrivals.

“What happened?” He demanded.

“Bellatrix sent a killing curse at me. Buffy…” Sirius stated shakily paused for a moment to regain his composure, “She pushed me out of the way and took the curse for me. I don’t know how she did it but she is still alive. It’s amazing after everything else she endured tonight.”

Dumbledore and the rest of the Order arrived then. Dumbledore moved towards Buffy causing everybody besides Sirius and Harry to move back.

“How is she doing?” Dumbledore questioned.

“Her pulse is faint but steady,” Sirius answered, “But she hasn’t woken up yet.”

“Where is Mrs. Weasley?” Dumbledore questioned.

“She is with Mister Giles,” Ron answered.

“Go get her,” Dumbledore order and Ron quickly followed directions.

The three men laid Buffy on the couch and Willow appeared with a cool wash cloth for Buffy’s head. Mrs. Weasley appeared in the living room.

“What is it? I am trying to take care of Rupert…” Her words trailed off at the sight of Buffy. She quickly rushed to the blonde’s side.

“What happened to her?” Molly demanded as she fluttered around her.

“She was hit with at least three cruciatus curses, one of them by Voldemort himself, a petrifying curse and then she fought at least seven vampires, I think a few of her ribs are broken and she seemed to be favoring her arm so it might be broken or hurt in some way also. Finally she was hit with the killing curse,” Sirius answered.

“What? How is she…” Molly’s thought trailed off as she continued to fuss over the unconscious girl.

“We have no idea but thank Merlin she is,” Sirius answered her unasked question.

“Let’s get her to her bed,” Molly ordered.

Harry scooped his fiancé into his arms bridal style and swiftly carried her upstairs.

“Why don’t you put her in my room Harry? There are no other roommates in there it will probably have more room to care for her properly,” Sirius offered.

Harry’s only reply was to rush to Sirius door.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

After Molly had made sure Buffy was as comfortable as possible and taken care of to the best of her ability she left the room. Harry and Sirius refused to leave the room and both of them sat in comfortable chairs awaiting the girl’s awakening.

Hours passed and both men had fallen asleep. Buffy started to toss and turn in bed all of a sudden screaming.

“Sirius look out!!!” She cried in her sleep.

Harry jumped to her side, “Buffy, Sirius is okay. You saved him.”

Buffy’s screams quieted to whimpers. Harry brushed the hair off of her forehead realizing she was burning up.

“How is she doing mate?” Sirius quietly questioned.

“She’s burning up,” Harry murmured.

Sirius conjured a bowl of cold water and a cloth to put on her forehead.

“She seems to be plagued with nightmares,” Harry observed as she kept tossing and turning whimpering and it appeared tears were slipping down her cheeks.

“MOM!!! GILES!!! SIRIUS!!!” Buffy cried out the names in terror, “No stop leave them alone. Please stop no not Harry. No never! I will never join you.”

“Buffy, love, wake up please. You are having a nightmare,” Harry pleaded with his injured fiancé.

Buffy’s eyes flew up and her eyes looked around wildly, until they landed on Harry. She quickly threw her good arm around his neck and hugged him tight as she sobbed into his shoulder wincing in pain at the same time.

“Where’s Sirius? Where’s Giles? Are they okay?” Buffy managed to ask her questions through her sobs.

“I’m right here Buffy, you saved me,” Sirius soothingly comforted her.

“Giles is in his room resting. He is a little worse from wear but he is alive and for the most part unscathed,” Harry answered.

“Did anybody else get hurt?” Buffy slowly fell back to the bed.

“No, a few cuts and bruises but nothing major,” Sirius answered.

“Good,” Buffy then promptly allowed the waiting blackness of unconsciousness claim her once again.

TBC…..
