AUTHOR’S NOTE: Hi guys and gals! It's been a while since I've written any stories. Real life, writers block, and other factors played a hand in this. But this idea for a continuation of my 2008 Crossing Over Award winner “Your Home Security Bites” (thanks to whoever voted for me!) hit me and I had to write it. As always, thanks for reading and reviewing!
Xander looked down at Calleigh.
He always hated seeing her hooked up to machines.
Xander knew the dangers of her job, but seeing Calleigh like this always bothered him.
"Thanks for calling me, Delko. She..."
"Doesn't want to worry you."
"You guys risk your life every day and she worries about me."
"You're her favorite cousin," Eric said. "Are you staying long?"
"Can't. Willow's picking me up. Thanks again, Eric. Tell her..."
"No problem. And she knows."
Xander bent down and kissed Calleigh on the forehead.
Before he could rationalise an excuse to stay, Xander walked out of the room.
