#94 Be My Valentine Summary:
Tony picks Buffy up for their date. Serious Threats
Tony winced as Dawn loudly announced his presence to her sister.
Her eyes raked over him and then her lips pulled into a frown. “You didn’t bring a gift,” she pointed out.
“I sent her flowers today,” he assured her, hands raised in surrender.
The brunette shook her head. “Doesn’t matter. It’s Valentine’s Day. You don’t show up for the date without a gift, no matter what. It’s a rule.”
He rolled his eyes. “I’ve got another gift, don’t worry.”
She looked him over again. “I don’t see it.”
“Some gifts are small,” he said with a grin.
Dawn’s eyes widened. “Really?” She asked in a near squeal.
Tony’s eyes softened as a glow infused them. “Yeah,” he quietly admitted to her.
She stepped up to him and he suddenly found himself wanting to take a cautious step back but stood his ground. Her face was pure steel as she whispered, “Don’t screw this up. You hurt her and there will be no place for you to run. Not even Abby would be able to prove that I had something to do with it. Capiche?”
He swallowed nervously and truly believed that she could carry out the not-so-idle threat. “Capiche.”
