BtVS prompt #1
I don't own them. They belong to Joss Whedon.
CorruptedSmile and I decided to try this prompt thing again. We chose 5 fandoms and each of us supplied one prompt for each. Hope you like it. Leave a review and then go check out Corrupted's take on the prompt.BtVS prompt one: Suppose Giles were in love with one of the Scoobies. What would be his thoughts on the subject and would he do anything about it?
It was wrong. He knew it was wrong. But he couldn’t help it. He was drawn to Xander. Drawn to his laughter and his pain and his annoying habit to make the most inappropriate jokes at the most inconvenient times. But Xander was young and hurt and so innocent and he did not need a broken old man lusting after him. Especially not now when he was recovering from the loss of his eye. And yet Giles looked and couldn’t stay away and recently there was a look in Xander’s eyes that wasn’t there before. He wanted to ignore it, wanted to convince himself he was seeing things, but that look was more and more common when Xander looked at him and a lovely little smile often accompanied it. And then came the battle and Giles feared he would never see that smile again. So tonight he was taking a risk. He sent the girls home and went to sit beside Xander’s hospital bed. And when Xander woke up Giles didn’t give him a chance to say anything, he just kissed him. Gently, tentatively. And when he lifted his head and looked at Xander the smile was there. And Giles could do nothing but smile back and know that this could never be wrong. A/N:
