The Search Begins
Ok, its been pointed out that John's dad's name was Patrick and that John has a brother named Dave. Yeah...I'm just gonna ignore that, LOL! I'm changing 'Frank' to 'Patrick', but Dave doesn't exist in my world! Mostly because it would be a pain in the ass to figure out how to add him in. I think that's it for now!BtVSxSGAxBtVSxSGAxBtVSxSGA
Chapter 1: The Search Begins
Cordy sat down at one of the computers in the Sunnydale High computer lab. After a week of weighing the pros and cons, she had decided to look up Patrick and Diane Sheppard.
She stared at the screen for a moment, not really sure where to start looking. “Well, I guess Google is as good a place as any,” She muttered as she pulled up an internet window and typed in the address. Once the page came up she started her search.
Thirty minutes later, Cordy groaned and let her head fall forward to thump on the desk. “Willow would definitely be useful right about now,” She mumbled to herself, silently wishing that she was on good terms with the redhead but knowing that there was no way she was ready to even think about forgiving the other girl or even talk to her yet, not after walking in on the redhead with Xander at the factory.
Cordelia heard a soft snicker nearby, but ignored it until the person started talking. Her head shot up and whipped around to look at the brunette flopping into the next chair over.
“Problems, Queen C?” Faith asked with a smirk, amusement dancing in her eyes.
“What do you want, Faith?” Cordy asked with a sigh.
Faith shrugged, “Nothin’. I’m just bored. Everyone else is in class. I was on my way to bug G, but I saw you in here and figured I’d bug you instead.”
Cordy rolled her eyes. “Gee, lucky me,” She muttered sarcastically before turning back to the computer.
The brunette Slayer chuckled and looked at the screen in front of the other girl. “So, who are Patrick and Diane Sheppard?” She asked curiously.
“No one,” Cordy replied shortly as she clicked on yet another link.
Faith raised an eyebrow at that, “Riiight, you’re just researching random people for the hell of it then?”
Faith just shrugged at the other girl’s response before turning to the computer she was sitting in front of and pulling up an internet window and typing in the address for another search engine. She quickly typed in ‘Sheppard, Patrick’ when the page came up.
Cordelia shot the younger girl a confused look, “What are you doing?”
“Researching random people for the hell of it,” Faith replied, “Though, I’m not really sure what it is I’m looking for.” As she noticed Cordelia’s now incredulous expression she continued, “What? It’s better than hangin’ in the library with G and the Three Musketeers. Not like I really fit in with them.”
Cordy stared at Faith for a moment longer before slowly replying. “You really want to help me?” She asked.
“Sure, why not? Though, if I’m gonna help, I’m gonna need to know what I’m looking for.”
Cordelia studied the other girl for a moment before nodding slowly. “They’re my birth parents. I found the adoption papers last week and I’m kinda curious.”
“Huh. That musta been a shock. Do you know anything other than their names?”
Cordy shook her head, “Nope. I mean, I guess they were married since my birth certificate had both of their last names listed as Sheppard. Though, only Patrick’s name was on the adoption papers, I don’t know if that means anything or not.”
“No clue,” Faith replied before turning back to the computer in front of her and continuing to search for Patrick or Diane Sheppard.
Another hour later and the last bell of the day rang through the school. Cordelia groaned as she stretched.
“Find anything?” She asked.
Faith shook her head, “No. God, this is gonna take forever. But, hey, I gotta meet up with B in the library, see what the plans are for tonight. I’ll meet you here tomorrow, though?”
“Sure. I won’t have my free period though, so it’ll have to be after school,” Cordy replied as she shut down her computer, Faith doing the same.
Faith nodded, “No prob. I’ll just tell B and the others that I have plans.”
“See you then,” Cordy replied, hesitating for a moment before continuing, “Hey Faith? Could you not tell the others about this?”
“Not a problem, Queen C. Not their business, anyway.”
Cordelia smiled, “Thanks.”
Faith smiled back, “See you tomorrow.”
With that the two brunettes went their separate ways, Faith to the library and Cordelia to her car and home.BtVSxSGAxBtVSxSGAxBtVSxSGA
