"Harris, Xander Harris. But, please just call me Xander."
"Very well Xander. These are my associates and friends, Sharon Macready and Craig Stirling."
"Nice to meet you all. Now what do Vi and Rissa need to talk to me about?" He looked at the two Slayers drinking cocoa.

"Nope. They are not demons in any way shape or form. 100% human."
