: Faith and Eve go head to head about her involvement
"Hey, Wills. You just caught me on my way out," Faith said with a bittersweet grin for the grandmother on screen.
"I figured as much, but we just caught someone using what looks like an unregistered to be scanning your basic background information and the computer looks to be located in New York. We're still trying to fine tune the triangulation of the source, but I thought I'd still give you a head's up just in case it gets bad," Willow informed her.
"Thanks for the info as always, my favorite Wicca," Faith said, signing off grabbing her patrol bag and heading out the door. She'd just turned the corner as she came out of her building when she heard her name called. The Slayer turned around to see Eve and Roarke walking towards her with a couple of vamps trailing not far behind them. Faith waited until the tow of them were both out of the way while she took out one her stakes and battled the two vamps. Once they were both dust, she helped Eve and Roarke back up from where she'd shoved them, and guided them back to her condo. Pouring them both small glasses of scothch, she sat down across from them both and waited for them to recover.
"So, where do you want me to start from?" she asked only a hint of sarcasm evident in her voice.
"Well, the dust bunnies seem unusual, but then, so is the information I received from a confidential source saying your birth certificate was falsified," Eve told her, taking another steadying sip of her scotch.
Faith frowned as she took the measure of the two humans before her. "Figured it might've been you guys from what Willow told me about you and your computer maven hubby. As for the first part, those two guys were vampires- probably part of the gang that wanted me to know about Merl. The birth records were supposed to be inviolate, since I need one every forty years or so," she said glibly with a smirk.
"What the hell are you hiding from the law for?" Eve demanded angrily.
Faith laughed. "No, nothing that bad anymore, anyways. I'm an Immortal- I never die, unless you cut off my head, so I need an new identity every so often before people start wondering about why I don't age."
"So it wasn't your grandmother we saw in the photos- it was you," Roarke concluded.
"Yep, pretty much. Angel said you two were levelheaded about things. Wasn't sure I'd believe him, but guess he was right again. So, gonna haul me outta here in cuffs, Lieutenant?"
Eve mulled it over and sighed. "No, I'll keep searching for whomever was trying to send you this message. I don't put much faith in the supernatural, but I saw what happened with those vampires. It was weird, but I'll figure something out."
