AN: An answer to Challenge 3292: Faith and Older Women
Faith couldn’t believe that she was in Las Vegas with Buffy. When Buffy had asked her to go on a road trip, it kind of surprised her, but she was enjoying the chance to actually bond with her Chosen Two partner. They started off going to San Francisco where Faith ended up daring Buffy to kiss and get the number of a woman she danced with in a club, and Faith was completely shocked when the blonde came back with Phoebe’s number. So now, it was Buffy’s turn.
Remembering back to when they first met, Buffy wanted to see these mad skills that Faith had bragged about, so one night they headed into this bar, and Buffy scoped out what was going to be Faith’s conquest. When the older blonde walked in, she knew Buffy had found her, but unbeknownst to Buffy, Faith liked older women.
“Watch and learn, B,” Faith said smiling as she drained the last of her drink.
“Just remember, the same rules apply to you, F.” Buffy retorted smirking, “Number and kiss or you have to strip on amateur night.”
“Gee, I don’t know if I want this to work or not.” Faith shot Buffy her dimples before walking up to the blonde and sitting beside her at the bar, “Damn, is it really hot in here or is it you?”
Catherine turned in her stool and looked at Faith, “Are you kidding me?”
“What?” Faith tried to play it cool and brought out her dimples for the new blonde, “I’m Faith, and there must be something wrong with my eyes, I can’t take them off you.”
“Catherine,” Faith shook the blonde’s hand, “And you might want to lay off the lines, they aren’t doing anything for me.” The smile Catherine gave her surprised Faith.
“Damn, I knew I should have started off with One of us is thinking about sex… Okay, it’s me.” Faith was surprised again as Catherine laughed.
“Hmm, that might have earned you How about never? Does that work for you?” Catherine said, “Here is one you can try if the woman is walking away. Hey, are you forgetting something?” and when they look back, finish with, “What? Me, of course.”
Faith threw her head back in laughter. She hadn’t had this much before, “How did you handle it?”
“I said. I don’t care. I don’t have to,” Catherine took a sip of her drink while turning her napkin over and writing her number down, “If you are staying in town, give me a call.” Catherine took Faith by surprise by giving her a kiss on the lips, “And tell Buffy I said hello.”
Faith sat on the stool in shock as Catherine walked out of the bar until she remembered the last thing Catherine said and looked over at her friend who was wearing a huge smile.
“B, you set me up?” Faith asked she sat back down at the table.
“Like you did with Phoebe and I,” Faith couldn’t believe the witch ratted her out, “Relax Faith, Catherine is one of Mom’s oldest friends, but I have to warn you that she has a daughter.”
“That just gives me someone to goof off with, but what about our road trip?” Faith didn’t want to ruin this bonding chance.
“We can stay in town awhile, and with Catherine’s schedule, you guys will have to plan your dates ahead of time. Plus, it gives us a chance to use our Council funds by flying all over the place,” Buffy said before draining the last of her drink, “Now lets head back to the hotel for some room service, I’m starved.
Faith couldn’t argue with Buffy on that one as she tossed some bills on the table before heading out.
