Given the number of females in his life with the ability to squeal high and loud and the frequency with which they exercised said talent, Xander knew his hearing would be the next of his senses to go. As he was engulfed in a fierce group hug, he couldn't bring himself to care.
"Did you find her?"
"Did she wig?"
"Did her parents?"
"Did she say yes?"
He grinned. The barrage of questions was the same each time one of them returned from contacting one of the girls Called in the aftermath of the battle that destroyed Sunnydale. "She's downstairs, getting the tour. Her dad's dead, a cop shot in the line a few years ago. Her brother's jealous but pleased for her, I think. Her mom..." Xander tried to find words to describe what he thought the woman had been feeling. "She's a bit wigged, a bit pleased... a bit... relieved, maybe? Having Ally here and the IWC paying for her education will be a relief for her, I think — they didn't live in the best part of town — and I think she's feeling a bit guilty about feeling relieved."
"And the girl, Ally?"
"Excited but surprisingly okay with everything. Interested in the physical training. Sees it as a great head start, professionally."
With the increased number of Slayers, 'day jobs' were not only a possibility for the newly Chosen but also actively encouraged, especially in complementary fields. "Why? What does she want to be?"
Imagining Buffy's reaction to the answer, Xander tried to contain his smirk. "Career Air Force."
