The Sunnydale Leap
"Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished .... He woke to find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not his own and driven by an unknown force to change history for the better. His only guide on this journey is Al, an observer from his own time, who appears in the form of a hologram that only Sam can see and hear. And so Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home." (Words from the opening of Quantum Leap)

As the blue light faded, he looked around and noted that he was alone on a small street, beside a bar. Sam became aware of the sounds of screaming around the corner and immediately ran towards it.
As he rounded the bend, what he saw startled him more than anything else he had ever seen before. There was a women surrounded by four men whose faces were extremely distorted. They had yellow eyes and fangs.
For a moment he froze. At the same time, a tall dark stranger approached the group. "It's not nice to gang up. No sporting at all."
The men...things stopped and looked up at him. One called out. "Get your own, brother. This one is ours."
The dark stranger smiled a dangerous gleam and said, "I don't think so."
Sam shook off his hesitation and went to help the other man. He wasn't going to let him fight them alone. Sam performed one of his spin kicks and was mildly surprised when the thing he kicked just smiled at him.
"Nice Kick," the stranger called out, "but if you want to kill it you have to stake him through the heart like this." Sam spun around to see the stranger thrust a piece of wood into the thing's heart and it turned to dust.
"Thanks," he called out and caught a stake that was thrown to him.
Within a few minutes, the stranger had dispatched another of the things. Sam finally got the upper hand on his and dusted it. He turned around to see if he could help the other man and noticed that his face had changed to look like the others. He staked the final one and his face shifted back to look human again. The woman on the ground hadn't noticed, but Sam did. The stranger, unaware that Sam had seen his other face, walked over to the ground and started to help her-up.
Sam was torn the man had helped them, but his face. Sam moved between the woman and the man. "I'll help her. Thank you for your help."
The dark man nodded at him and disappeared into the shadows.
"Are you alright?" Sam asked the woman who was looking up wide-eyed at him. Sam noticed that she looked badly beaten up, with bruises already forming on her cheeks and eyes.
"Tony?" The woman's voice squeaked.
"Answer yes" Al interjected.
"Yes. Are you okay?" Sam asked helping her-up. He glanced over at Al, grateful that he finally showed up.
"Sam, her name is Jessica and she is your wife." Al told him.
"Let's get you home." Sam said as he started to guide her home. Al guided the way.
Jessica kept looking at her husband. She could hardly believe this was the same man who had beaten her only an hour before while he was in a drunken rage.

Sam guided Jessica into the bedroom. He told her to change her clothes and he would get her something to drink. He left the room. Jessica was again staring wide-eyed at him.
Sam got to the kitchen. He really wanted to talk to Al.
"Sam, you are Anthony . . ."
Sam cut him off. "That can wait for a minute Al. When I leaped in there were four things attacking that woman."
"Well, if you hadn't cut me off, I was going to tell you. You are in Sunnyhell" Al hits the side of the handlink. "Ah . . Sunnydale. Anyway, Sunnydale is on a Hellmouth. What you saw was undoubtedly a vampire."
"Vampire? Al? You have got to be kidding me. You don't really believe this stuff do you?" Sam asked incredulously.
"Oh, I do Sam. I once dated this gal. She was beautiful. It was right after I broke-up with my third wife, or maybe it was after my second wife. Anyway, she was always talking to the stars, but man she was . . ." Al paused looking quite pleased with himself. "Anyway, it turned out she was a vampire so we broke up.
"You are making that up."
"Nope, in fact maybe I could try to find her again."
"Okay, I give up. So, what am I here to do?"
"Well, it's 1980 and you are supposed to stop a vampire called Motor from killing a girl named Emily." Al said looking at the link. "Actually, Oh man you already dusted the vampire. In the original history, he escaped after attacking Jessica."
"So why haven't I leaped?"
"Because, Bucko. It looks like you changed something you shouldn't have. In the original history, Jessica was saved by a guy named Poof. Poof?" Al hits the hand link again. "guy named Angel who is a vampire with to much hair gel."
"er . . vampire with a soul. Sorry Sam, I'll have to have a talk with William, he's filling in for Gushie for a little while." Al explained. "Anyway, he is destined to be a real force for good, but in 1980 he rarely helps anyone. In fact he doesn't deal with people often. So, he gets her home. She is grateful and he hasn't been around people in decades and well ba-ba-bing. Nine-months later,
Jessica gave birth to a bouncing baby boy."
"Al, I don't know much about vampires, but I thought they couldn't have children."
"Well, Angel is unique." Al tried to explain.
Sam ran his hand through his hair. "So, we have to get them together?"
"Ziggy says that the child's father is not as important as the fact that Jessica conceives within the next 48 hours." Al said.
"Okay, so what about her husband.?"
"Well, he is a drunken bastard who beats her regularly. I think you will find that most of the bruises are from him."
"You better go check on her Sam. She looked like she was in a bad way." Al prompted Sam.
Sam entered the bed room with a cup of tea and sat on the edge of the bed. "How are you feeling?"
"Better." She hesitated before looking up at him. "You're aura is different and it is surrounded with a light blue energy. You aren't Tony are you?"
Sam dropped his eyes to the floor.
"Its alright, you don't have to tell me. Your actions speak louder than any words." She said softly as she reached over and kissed him on the cheek. "Nice to meet you. I'm Jessica LaVelle Harris" She smiled.
Sam blushed. He thought for a moment and finally answered. "I'm Sam. Samuel Alexander Beckett."
The two talked the rest of the night. Jessica told him all about Tony, her family, and the weird occurrences in Sunnydale. He told her what he remembered about the project, Al, and his family.
They spent the following day together having fun. A well deserved break for them both. Jessica was use to being scared and dominated. Sam had been leaping for . . . he didn't know how long.
By the end of the day, they went home and Sam leaned in and kissed her softly.

As the blue light faded, Sam found himself standing in front of a woman in a white lab coat. Her name tag read 'Dr. Walsh'.
"Mr. Finn, you know that sample you took from subject 003, the slayer's friend?" Dr. Walsh asked.
"Yes, ma'am." Sam said uneasily.
She continued, "there is something different about it. The are some minor discrepancies
on a quantum level."
Sam's mind swam with the possibilities, but he doubted he should know much about it so he answered, "How is that possible?'
"That is a good question, it would imply that he or one of his parents were exposed to some form of quantum radiation. I suspect it could attract some demons. I want to learn more about subject 003, this . . . Alexander LaVelle Harris." Dr. Walsh said.
The name sparked some form of recognition in Sam's mind. Al appeared and announced, "Welcome back to Sunnydale, Sam"
