Sunnydale High School basement

November 3, 1997

"Are you sure Cordy's down here, you dweeb?"

Harmony Kendall's voice carried an amusing mixture of uncertainty and disdain as she followed Xander Harris down the stairway and into the lowermost regions of the school's support facilities. Behind her, Aura, Aphrodesia and Claire trailed along, like the obedient, well-trained minions they were.

"Yeah, Harmony, I'm completely sure Cordy's down here, just like I'm sure she'll be delighted to see all of you," the dark-haired youth confirmed the answer to the would-be social queen's question, not letting her see the smile that slid across his face as he did so.

{ After all, } he reflected, { I'm the one who dumped her body down here last night, and there hasn't been sufficient time passed for anyone to notice and report her missing, yet. }

{ And I'm just as certain she'll be delighted to see all four of you bimbos, because we haven't fed her or Amy yet since they woke up a little while ago. }

"Here you are," he said as he indicated one of the locked doors that filled the hallway. "Cordy's inside there.

"I'll stay out here," he added as he opened the door and ushered the four girls inside, shutting the door behind them.

His hyper-acute hearing allowed him to catch Harmony's "Oh my God, Cordy! What in the world happened to you? You look like death warmed over!"

{ Funny you should use that particular phrase, Harm, } Xander thought to himself, an instant before the screaming began. { 'Cause that's gonna be the perfect description for all of you bimbos. }


Sunnydale High School basement

Approximately twelve hours later

"Now that's something you don't see everyday," Buffy Summers commented as she stood next to her fellow Scooby Gang member, Xander Harris , and looked at the twitching dead body of Harmony Kendall that was lying along side that of her former classmates Aphrodesia, Aura and Claire.

"True," Xander nodded his agreement with the blonde vampire's observation, "but then again, this is Sunnydale, so something being weird here is actually kinda commonplace."

Seeing the small flashes of blue-white lightening which seemed to dance along the edges of the gaping wounds in the blonde's throat, leaving unblemished flesh behind, the two vampires glanced at each other before giving a mutual sigh and saying, in unison, "Research party!"

As the now-resurrected blonde opened her eyes and looked around in dazed confusion, she spotted her two undead classmates staring at her and asked indignantly, "What the hell's going on here, you dweebs?"

"Welcome back, Harm," Xander grinned at their moronic classmate, while Buffy gave her a wide smile and said, "Yeah, Harm, welcome back. You're just in time for lunch!", right before both their faces shifted into their new furrowed-forehead and fanged state.

The screaming that began a moment was music to both their ears.
