Disclaimer: I don’t own Moonlight or Buffy
Timelines: After the first episode of Moonlight, and Post S7 for Buffy, except all the potentials turned slayers went back to being potentials.
Buffy knocked on the door. She prayed that Bethy was home, when the door opened, she found a man, a man who claimed to be her boyfriend. He gladly directed her to the friend Beth was visiting.
Walking through the hall, she got a squirmy feeling in her stomach as she approached the door. She knocked, and waited for the man to open the door. When he did, she inhaled and went to say something, but Beth pushed past the man and pulled her into a hug.
Buffy patted her older sister on the back, “Hi Beth.”
Beth pulled back and smiled at her sister, she didn’t notice the bruises on her arms, or the ageless eyes, “Oh, Lizzy, this is, uh, a friend of mine, Mick, Mick St. John. He’s a private investigator.”
Buffy smiled softly and stuck her hand out, “Buffy, Buffy Summers. So, you aren’t by any chance related to the Nest family, are you?”
Mick’s eyes flashed in danger, “I’ve had dealings with them in the past, why?”
“Oh, nothing, I just thought I’d heard something down under about you,” Buffy shook his hand, squeezing tightly. His eyes widened with shock.
He recovered quickly, “It is a pleasure to meet you, I didn’t know Beth had a sister.”
Beth wrapped an arm around her sister, “We were brought up as cousins, we didn’t find out we were actually sisters until we were in our teens.”
Buffy smiled, “So, what’s happening with the mild mannered reporter?”
Beth smacked her forehead with her hand, “Oh, I forgot my notes on the story in my car. I’ll be right back.”
Beth dashed out the door, leaving Mick and Buffy alone, “Would you like something to drink?”
Buffy shook her head, “I doubt you have anything I would touch.”
He looked puzzled, “Okay.”
The slayer looked at him, “So what is it with vamps with morals becoming dicks?”
Mick stared at her in shock, “What?”
Buffy just smiled, “Beth doesn’t know, does she?”
Mick avoided her stare, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Let me put it this way, I know, you’re a vampire. Hell, I’ve dated two of them,” Buffy grinned.
She watched him gulp, “I-uh…”
She took pity on him, “Don’t worry, I won’t tell, I’ve been in on the secret since I was fifteen. I am the slayer after all.”
Mick tensed, “S-slayer?”
“You said you dated two vampires?”
She nodded again.
“Are you going to kill me?”
“Depends, are you planning on ending the world this week?”
Mick shook his head, “No.”
“Then no. I’d rather drink with a vamp than try to kill him, especially when the try to help people, I mean I’m kind of a twelve step program to becoming a good vamp. Just ask my first vamp boyfriend.”
Mick nodded but before he could say any more, Beth walked back in.
As Beth led Buffy away, Buffy turned around and smiled at the handsome vampire leaning against the doorframe, “Hey, Mick!”
He smiled before calling back, “Hey what?”
“If you’re free tomorrow night, I make a kick ass Bloody Mary, extra Bloody,” she grinned.
He crossed his arms, “I’ll be there, and I’m brining a friend, you’ll get along with him. Your sense of humors almost identical, it’s frightening really.”
Buffy stuck her tongue out at him but turned away, a little bounce in her step, anticipating just what other vamp he would bring to the table.
