Chapter 9: The End of the Beginning
Chapter 9: The End of the Beginning
When Buffy started to walk over to Damon she pulled out a knife and sliced her arm.
“Drink” she said offering Damon her arm. When Damon was hesitant she continued “drink or you’ll die.”
With that Damon grabbed her arm and started drinking. After a minute or two Buffy said “Ok Damon that’s enough.” When Damon didn’t respond she said it again “Damon stop that’s it.” He still didn’t stop so Buffy picked up her free arm and swung knocking Damon. Buffy dropped to her knees with a thud.
“Paige! Are you okay?!” Elena asked her cousin with worry in her eyes.
“Yea I’ll be okay just give me a second.” Buffy said still kneeling on the floor.
When she stood up her arm was already healing and the others stared at her with amazement.
“How’d your arm heal so fast?” Elena asked.
“it comes with the slayer package.” she responded when her phone started to ring. Looking at the caller ID she realized that is was Sydney so she answered it.
“Hey Syd what’s up?”
“Dixon called me and said he needs us both in the office….something about meeting a new agent or something.”
“Ok guess I’ll see you in a little bit.” She said hanging up the phone and sticking it back into her pocket.
“I have to go to LA” she said walking over to the group. “I’ll take you home and leave from there. How you feeling?”
“Sure let’s go.” Sookie said.
"All healed up" Damon said showing her his arm.
They all said good bye and Buffy grabbed Sookie’s hand and orbed out.
A few seconds later they orbed into Sookie’s house.
“I knew there was something else to you other than the slayer thing. I could sense it when you were at Fangtasia.” Eric said standing behind them.
‘Crap’ Buffy thought to herself.
“Ok so I don’t have time for this now……so buh bye.” Buffy said. “See ya later Sook.”
She orbed to about a block away from HQ and walked the rest of the way. When she got there she walked into the building and went into the rotunda. When she saw Dixon walking with some guy, she couldn’t see his face, into the conference room.
“So what’s with the new agent?” Buffy asked walking up to Syd and Marshall.
“He’s taking Weiss’s place since he left to DC.” Syd said.
“That was fast.” Buffy said.
“H-h-he seems nice enough though.” Marshall said walking over to the conference room.
“So is he hot?” Buffy asked Syd. “And how much?”
“Yeah and Billy Mitchell hot.”
“Huh…..Dibs.” Buffy said with a smile.
“I’m with Vaughn remember.”
“Oh yeah forgot about that.”
“Bristow….Summers in the conference room now.” Dixon said.
“Still dibs” Buffy said walking away laughing.
Syd laughed, rolled her eyes, and followed Buffy to the conference room. When they reached the conference room Buffy stopped abruptly and Sydney crashed into her.
“Paige why’d you stop?”
Buffy was standing there with a shocked expression on her face.
Then Dixon said “Agent O’ Connor, I’d like you to meet Agents Paige Summers and Sydney Bristow. Agent Summers and Bristow I’d like you to meet our newest agent, Agent Angel O’ Connor.”
“Angel?” Buffy finally managed to get out and then turned around and left the room.
“What the hell is that about?” Sydney said before turning around and going after her.
When Sydney caught up to her she grabbed Buffy’s arm and stopped her.
“What was that about?” she asked again.
“It’s Angel…..I can’t believe that he is here of all places he has to start working at my job really my job he couldn’t have signed up for like FBI or some other thing he has to be here in the CIA I….”
“Paige…Paige you’re rambling.” Sydney interrupted her. “Why is this guy so far under your skin?”
“It’s Angel” She said then realized her friend was still confused with her explanation so she continued. “My ex you know Angel.”
“Oh he’s that Angel.” Sydney said surprised. “Well then guess you just need to quit now.” she said as sarcastically as she could.
“Geez Syd thanks for the support.” Buffy said with a smirk and the shake of her head. "I wonder why he didn't tell me when I saw him a few weeks ago." she added after Sydney had already headed back into the conference room.
