An ounce of prevention
Title: An Ounce of Prevention
Challenge: #56 Proverbs
Summary: Xander finds someone who agrees with him about Angel
Disclaimer: Not mine. Just playing with them a bit.
Notes: FFA Pairing Xander/Alfred
Buffy was gonna kill him, he knew it. Of course, if he was gonna have to hide for the rest of his life, he could think of worse places than Bruce Wayne's mansion. And really, he didn't see Buffy even looking anywhere near Gotham for him. He only found out about his uncle a few months ago, and there had been so much focus on the next apocalypse that he never found the time to tell even Willow.
"It's not like I planned on it Uncle Alfred. But I saw the way Angel and Cordy looked at each other. And I just got this feeling like a knife in my gut."
"I understand my boy, you care for the girl, yes?"
"Yeah, I do, but it wasn't jealousy. If it were any other guy I'd have been happy for her. But I just kept thinking about what happened before. Loving Buffy made him lose his soul and start killing people. I just kept thinking of all those people he killed back then, and next I knew my crossbow fired and he was dust."
"I don't blame you, Alexander. After all, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
