Right, my disclaimer: Nothing belongs to me. But if I save up, I might be able to buy Buffy and Selene from Underworld. But that's just my daydream....
Because my Beta has not reply yet, so I'm just gonna get started without him...
*ducks flying shoe thrown by invisible beta*
Don't hurt me!
Oh, yes, and I would try and reply all the questions I can if you have any; just leave me a comment and I'll get back to them as soon as I can. *wink wink*
Now, on with the story.
“What is this?” Buffy questioned as she traced a finger lightly over the… thick, bulky metal contraption in her hand.
“A gun; have you not seen anything like this before?” Selene answered.
“Not in my time. It must have been invented sometime after my imprisonment.” She sighed.
“What is for?”
“It’s a weapon. Semi automatic.”
“Isn’t a cross bow more effective?” Buffy turned the gun in her hand; accidentally pulling the safety off.
“Be careful!” Selene snatched the gun away from her and stuffed it back into the compartment pocket. “While you and I will not die from mere wounds, it still hurts a lot if you shoot yourself with it. And no, in response to your previous question. Crossbow may have a more accurate range, but it takes a long time to reload.”
“Fine.” Buffy pouted.
Selene glanced into the rearview mirror as she took note at the older woman’s face. For someone so old, she does act young
. She mused.
The car was silent for a while as Buffy greedily took in the landscape around her; even though it was night, she could still see everything clearly as if it were day. The world has changed a lot since I last saw it
The vampire first broke the silence encompassing them.
“Pardon me for asking, but do you remember what had happened before you were locked up?” The brunette woman asked as she swerved narrowly to the side to avoid an oncoming car.
Buffy gripped her seatbelt nervously. She may be immortal, but the way how the other woman handled the machine so … fearlessly made her think twice about the limit point of her immortality.
Selene snorted and grinned when she saw the look on Buffy’s face. I’m sure my driving isn’t that bad.
She reasoned with herself silently.
“Don’t tell me you are afraid of the cars?” She teased.
“Of course I am not!” Buffy huffed and quickly changed the topic in getting embarrassed even further. A few centuries old immortal like her shouldn’t be afraid of a..a thing she could probably crush in one swipe! “So, what was it you wanted to ask me about? My memories before the incident?"
“Yes.” Selene answered.
“I do remember William creating havoc and turning villages into Lycans like him. Then Markus found and turned a warlord named Victor to help him capture our brother. After that, well, you should know what happened next.”
Selene breathed in slightly and looked at the slight flicker of anguish in Buffy’s eyes before it turned into a mask of cold indifference.
“Keep your eyes on the road!”
Buffy suddenly squeaked as they came so
close to yet another car; the two cars side view mirrors were almost touching one another.
“Don’t worry, we won’t crash, Princess.”
“Princess?” Buffy questioned.
“It’s just a nickname.” Selene said.
“He used to call me that…”
“Alexander. Before he locked me up and chained me like a rabid dog.”
Dun Dun Dun Dunnnnnnn...
Okay, that was just plain idiocy....
I still don't like the 'feeling' of the story; feels a little bit too fast for me.
So.. Got any ideas or comments that you could perhaps help me with?
