Part One

A phone rang in a flat in a suburb of London.

"Yes?" was said into the piece in a cultured English accent.

"It's done. The Watcher and the witch won't be interfering any more," replied a similar voice, but with less of a refined air to it.

"Good. Pity Mr. Finn did not do as he was ordered."

"Well, what do you want me to do, mate?"

"Watch him for a while. Find out where the DeMornay's are, then eliminate him."

"All right."

"Oh, and William?"


"Don't get staked." With that, Travers hung up the phone, confident that soon, no one that knew of him and his methods would be around. He smiled. No one knew what he had become. So, when Spike brought him the DeMornay's and Riley Finn, he could get rid of all five of them at once.

Adam Pierson, also known to very few as Methos, oldest living Immortal, leaned back in his chair and stretched. He had decided to take a break from transposing the Methos Chronicles and check his long-forgotten email. He saw that had sent him four messages recently, all about the same thing. He clicked to open one, and, as he read the message, his expression grew more and more grim. The Initiative he had helped found in 1965 was not what the Watcher's Council was using it for now. Then, he saw another message from Riley, dated yesterday, and opened it as well.

Sir it read, I have previously sent you details about the predicament of the DeMornay family. Since that time, I have discovered that Robert Travers had ordered another team sent to Sunnydale to try and find them, and, if they did not, to kill all family and friends of Willow's, since, as you already know, Angel's family have all been dead for a while now. I have already told Willow and Angel about the murders of Jenny and Rupert Giles, but not of the murder of her parents, though it seems like her parents, at least, were murdered by Spike, and may or may not be connected to Travers. (I wouldn't put it past him.) Spike is also the one who killed Buffy DeMornay, Angel's first wife, in 2005. He also, during that same incident, killed Willow's first husband, Alexander Harris. I fear that, now that everyone else is gone, he will try to flush them out and eliminate them as well. If you haven't already, please meet with them soon, and make sure they are safe.


Agent Riley Finn, #2471

After checking the rest of his messages, which included a couple from Duncan, one from Alissa, and a couple from Joe, he decided to try and find out where the DeMornay's were. He brought up a white pages search engine, and inserted 'Pierce', which Riley had informed him in an earlier letter that that was what Willow, Angel, and Rose were going by in England.

"David and Natasha. Ha! It's not them, and why Alissa hasn't had it taken out is beyond me. Ah! David and Elisa. Perfect."
