Chapter One: Through the Veil
Disclaimer: I don't own Buffy or HP.
Buffy woke up and looked around her. The bed was empty. Where was Angel? She had just given him her virginity and he was now gone.
She stood up and quickly got dressed.
“Angel! Angel! Where are you?!”
When there was no answer she noticed that she needed to be at school in an hour. She quickly made the trip home and got dressed. Giles would know what to do. She arrived at school early, a first for her, and then ran to the library. Willow, Xander, and Giles were in there.
“Have you seen Angel?”
“I thought he was with you!” Giles exclaimed
“He was, but then he disappeared.”
Later that day
Buffy walked into the library down. Giles was, as usual, sitting at the table reading a book which looked like it had prophecies in it foretelling her death.
“Giles do you mind if I skip training and go on patrol and then look for Angel?”
Giles was about to answer when there was a curtain appeared where Giles’ office door was a few minutes before and a man with long black hair stumbled through. His face was gaunt. He had a long thin stake outstretched in one hand. He looked at them with unseeing eyes.
He seemed about to do something with the stake when Giles said sharply, “BLACK!!!!”
The man, for the first time seemed to really notice Giles, “Ripper?!!!!”
Time seemed frozen as the two men stared at each other.
“Giles, since you two seem to know each other, I’m going to go find Angel.”
She turned to leave when the man grabbed her arm.
Buffy studied the man carefully before saying, “What of it?”
“Ripper, you kidnapped my daughter from Joyce while I was in Azkaban?”
“Azka-what?” Buffy asked not really noticing the rest of the sentence.
“Azkaban,” both men corrected at the same time.
“It’s a prison, Buffy,” Giles informed her.
“I have to go!”
With that Buffy finished walking out the door.
