“Who are you?”
‘He asks a question I do not know how to answer. Who am I? I’ve lived so many lives now. Once I was Buffy Summers, Slayer. But she died, several times. Until she died one last time and ended up in this alternate dimension. Curse to live her life for a few years until death came again. That wasn’t the worse part of it all. No, dying she could do, even as Buffy Summers she overcame it. But to find love, real love, only to lose said love over and over again. She had found a new detest for magic because of the curse placed on her and her lover.’
“Miss?” he questioned and pulled me from my thoughts.
“You can call me Buffy.” Buffy answers, ‘maybe it was time to be Buffy again. It’s been about a hundred years since she took that name.’
“Buffy?” he questioned, finding the name strange.
“That’s right. Buffy Hall.” she responded.
“You’re Carter’s wife? I thought your name was Shayera.” A brunette woman standing near the imposing man questioned.
“I went by a lot of names over the years. Shayera and Buffy are the most common ones.” Buffy explained, then paused. “Carter’s dead?” she questioned in a sad tone.
Seeing the man nod, Buffy closed her eyes fighting her feelings for control. She had died and left him alone, now that he had died. She was alive again and he would be reincarnated. As was the curse placed upon them by one of their enemies. She wasn’t sure why she didn’t reincarnate the same as Carter did. Maybe it was Willow’s spell or maybe it was the Slayer part of her still residing in her even as she became Chay-Ara so long ago. She had chosen to not be Buffy at the time. She had fallen in love with Khufu and he with her. While he was reincarnated in the truest sense of the word. She simply woke up somewhere, usually where they had been placed to rest.
“He died saving my life.” The brunette spoke up.
Buffy smiled proudly, “He’s like that. Did you know him well?”
“He was a good man and friend.” The man replied. “I’m Clark, Clark Kent.”
“Lois Lane” the brunette offered her name.
“You part of the Justice Society?” Buffy questioned.
“Not exactly, a lot has changed since you’ve been…” Clark started, but drifted off uncomfortable.
“Dead,” Buffy offered smiling at the man’s uncomfortable feelings around the subject.
“Yeah,” Clark quickly agreed before continuing to tell the blonde what’s happened since her death.
When he was done, Buffy was silent. “I see, well I have to find my husband reincarnation.” She paused, thoughtful for a moment. “Has the world reached the point where cell phones are finally a reality yet?”
“How did you know about cell phones?” Lois questioned.
“That’s a long story.” Buffy answered, “I take it that cell phones are invented then?”
Clark nodded, “They are.”
Buffy smiled and then continued to tell the two that she would buy one and pass on her number to them for them to call her if they needed her. After getting Lois’s number, Buffy bid them farewell before spreading her wings and flying off to find her love.~ Fin ~
