Story: Feeling Lost

Dawn had always known that Xander had the Sight—she hadn’t needed a preacher to tell her that unlike some people she could name—so when he had pleaded with her one day to immediately go to a specific bistro in one of Brazil’s coastal towns, she hadn’t hesitated to arrange a flight, firm in her belief that Xander wouldn’t have sent her there for nothing. He would have gone, but he was busy killing zombies; he had, after all, previous knowledge of how to deal with those.


The minute Dawn walked in through the door, she focused on a dark-haired young man with a beard sitting at a table for two. She simply knew that he was the one Xander had sent her for; Xander’s vision had been very detailed. Sadness could be read in every line of his body; his slumped posture, the lines around his eyes, the way he trailed a finger up and down the table leg as if he didn’t know what to do with himself. She came out of her thoughts when an older man walked passed her and joined the young man at the table.


Keeping a close eye on them, Dawn chose a table near them, ordered a cup of coffee and unashamedly eavesdropped. From the conversation going on next to her—and thank god she had studied Portuguese—she gathered that the young man, Francisco, missed his brother Thomás. Making a mental note of that piece of information for future reference, she drank her coffee and impatiently waited for the older man to leave, so she could talk to Francisco about losing someone close to you—something she was, unfortunately, very familiar with.


When the older man finally got ready to leave, Dawn ordered a second cup of coffee for both her and Francisco, knowing without a doubt that a drink would be needed to fortify them for the coming conversation. Steeling herself for a minute, she got up and walked over, intent on making Xander proud.

End of “Feeling Lost”.

A/N: This is the result of another challenge concocted by me and lothlorien for one of our weird celebrations. The point is to put five different Buffy characters in five different fandoms and write something short centred around the word “coffee”.

Third prompt: Dawn, From Beginning to End.
