The Ultimate Christmas Gift
Buffy stared down at the note in her hand, lit only by the lights of the Christmas tree in front of her. It didn’t matter, she’d read it enough to know what it said. Hank wasn’t her father, her real father was coming to see her; spend the holiday with her. She couldn’t believe it. Her father was Hercules. It explained so much that all she could do was wait, excitedly, for his arrival.
There was a knock on the door and she jumped up to answer it, seeing a handsome man standing there with dirty blonde hair and a body like she couldn’t believe. “Are you Hercules’ son to?” She asked, confused, she had thought it would just be her father coming to see her but this man looked much to young to have been the father of a twenty year old young woman. Hell he only looked about twenty-three himself.
The man laughed and she looked surprised at the way the sound seemed to settle her soul. “No, I’m Hercules, and you must be Buffy. I’m so happy to finally get to meet you.” He told her, smiling and Buffy stepped aside to let him in, though she didn’t verbalize it.
“Yea, I’m Buffy but there’s no way you’re my dad….you’re way too young.” She said, only slightly surprised as he was able to step inside. She’d been sure that he had been turned into a vampire probably not long after conceiving her. She turned on the lights and smiled. “Forgive me for being so surprised but I didn’t know that the man who raised me when I was young wasn’t my father until I got your letter.”
He nodded in understanding. “Joyce couldn’t handle the truth when she found out. I’m a demi-god and she couldn’t take it so she left when she was pregnant with you.”
His words made Buffy nod, remembering when she’d been first put in the insane asylum then kicked out both times her mom had found out the truth about her.
The rest of the night was spent with the two superheroes getting to know each other, laughing and talking about stories of saving people and defending the world.Fin!
A/N: this was just a one shot and I hope you all enjoyed it thanks for reading!
