Wedding Gifts / A Lovely Couple

This one is a pair of 100-word Dexter / Angel / BtVS drabbles. Naturally I own none of these shows, and this story may not be distributed on a profit-making basis.

Wedding Gifts / A Lovely Couple

By Marcus L. Rowland


His aunt’s invitation comes back marked "Addressee deceased." Dexter shrugs and crosses her off the list. He's surprised when he glances across the crowd at the reception and thinks he sees her, nibbling a canapé and talking to Harry. Both are dead; is it mistaken identity, or some fluke of his imagination?

Before he can check it out it’s time for another dance; by the time he glances that way again both of them are gone.

Later he’s surprised to find a present bearing his aunt’s name; razor-sharp kitchen knives. He’s sure they’ll be useful, one way or another.

"They’re a lovely couple," says Lilah Morgan. "You must be very proud."

"He's coming along nicely," says Harry. "My last project was over-ambitous, but this time I think... well, wholesale destruction is good in its place, but fine craftsmanship is just as rewarding."

"And much more likely to stay under the Slayer's radar."

"Exactly."

"And avoids annoying the Senior Partners, of course. Canape?"

"You know I can't..."

"Touch things? Of course. One advantage of working for Wolfram and Hart, the post-life package includes everything. Mmmm, these are really rather good."

Harry, AKA The First Evil, glowers but doesn't answer.

End.

No apology for revisiting a theme I've previously explored in my story Family Lawyer
