Xander got up the next morning and called out for Tim. When he did not hear anything he called Giles to find out what Book he was to pickup. “Hey G-Man what am I picking up and from where?”
“I really wish you would stop calling me that. Well…” He went ahead and gave all the detail he had about picking up the book.
When Xander got to the magic shop it was to find the book was not due in till the next week. Xander was not happy but he figured that at least he could spend the time with Tim.
“Bro you want to do lunch today? I just found out my book will not be in till next week,” Xander said to his brother’s voice-mail as he went about went about his day. He tried to call Tim at lunch time and again went to voice-mail. “I guess you’re busy on a case. Try to make it home for dinner. I’ll talk to you later.”
Xander went to the beach for the rest of the day and around 7 he realized that he was getting hungry. He tried to call Tim again and still no answer. He decided that he would just stop by the station.
“Hi I’m looking for Tim Speedle. I was hoping that he was in since I see his bike is out front.”
“Um let me get one of his team. He was hurt at a scene and they would have more detail. “Delco I have a gentleman up here that is looking for Speed.” He will be right up.”
Xander was starting to wonder what was going on. He was getting that end of the world feeling while waiting. This was his only family that he cared about. He was part of why he stayed with Buffy for so long so that he could keep his brother safe. It was not right that everyday humans had gotten his brother hurt.
Eric watched as the young man paced the hall. “Hi I’m Eric Delco I was told you were looking for Speed” Xander turned around and shook his hand.
“Ya I got in yesterday and he dropped me at his place. He was not there when I got up today so I assumed that He had to come in today too. When did he get hurt I have not been able to reach him all day?”
“May I ask who you are because we don’t give out Information to just anyone.”
“I’m his Brother and yes we only have the hair and eyes in common. We have the same drunk ass father but different mothers.”
“Your plane came in from were and what why did you come here?”
“Africa and for a book.” Xander shoot his head. “Who pretended they were me and are they in jail?”
“He wont give his real name still saying that he is Alexander Harris and no prints on file. Speed is in the hospital. He was shot in the shoulder area and he was not stable enough for them to operate till about an hour ago. He is still in surgery from the last update I got about ten minutes.
They walked out to the Hummer and headed to the hospital
