Multiple crossover challenge-

Xander needs to meet at least one Man that he really wants to be his father and/or one person he hopes his not related to.
Have Fun Writing everyone. ^^ -----
2) Author’s note: I know that more could be written for this story and yet I feel that have answered the question of who Xander’s father is and his trip over. It was time for him to move on.
Anything more would just drag the story on with too many details. I feel that I have provided everyone who’s read the story (many, many thanks by-the-way) fuel for their imagination. A lot of what happened, what ifs, how did they do... etc... I’m leaving it up to you to image it. Think of the stories that can be spun with that. -----
