“Xander... It's a little late to be calling.” Giles said into his phone. “Well, when you put it that way I suppose it isn't. No I'm not going to apologize.”
He sighed. “How can I help you Xander?”
“No. I've never heard of Space Vampires.” Giles said with an exasperated tone. “While there are demons that can be summoned to feed on insanity that is an entirely different class.”
“What do you mean you found one?” Giles said as he started to clean his glasses. “Xander I really don't have time for practical jokes. Once you have something more concrete for me to look up than what you have I'll do something.” Giles winced as he took the phone from his ear. The language of that boy.
“Look.. just call me back if something important happens. I don't need to hear about any flights of fancy because you fell asleep watching that accursed 'Mistress of the Dark' you went on about in High School.” Giles said before hanging up the phone.
“Damn.” He muttered. “I wonder if it's still on?” He mused before heading to his slightly concealed Television to check.
“No luck huh?” Vampirella smirked at her new...friend.
“He didn't flipping believe me! You've sorted through my brain, you know with the stuff I've seen. Something like you is entirely plausible right?” Xander said with a shake of his head.
“Yes, but barely. Aren't older folks just a fair bit more set in their ways? Maybe he's just not as... flexible as you.” Vampriella said as she snuggled up to Xander and started to let her hands wander.
“Again? The spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised.” Xander said before pausing. “Man. I can't believe I just said that.”
“Well... your mouth still works right?” Vampirella asked him.
“Oh... all right.” Xander said with a shrug. “Remember I'm pretty new at this.”
“What's the phrase?” Vampirella asked. “Oh yeah, I'll steer you around the curves.” She told him.
A few minutes later....
Xander made a muffled 'Ow' sound and twitched, setting into motion a series of events that would show up several weeks later....
The Bronze at the end of Summer.....
“Thanks for meeting me here Giles.” Xander said as the older man sat down at the table with the teen.
“I didn't even know the club opened this early.” Giles said as he looked at Xander. The younger man was dressed in black jeans and rather snug black T-shirt as well. It was a far cry from the usual attire he was used to seeing Xander in.
Wardrobe change usually meant a different type of change for the lad.
“If you have a cross, I'll hold it.” Xander told Giles before the Englishman even had a chance to voice his thoughts.
“Good idea.” Giles said before handing Xander a crucifix.
The teen took the silver cross in his hand and let it rest there. No smoke or pain.
“So you haven't been turned. That's good.” Giles said softly.
“Not exactly.” Xander said with a small grin that showed he had extended canine teeth. “Turns out 'Ella's vampirism is catching. It just took a little while for it to kick in. It's blood based like the kind you know.”
“You let a vampire share blood with you?” Giles asked. “Of all the stupid things to do!”
“First off, you were the one who told me there were no such thing as 'Space Vampires'. Turns out you're wrong. Secondly... the whole blood sharing thing was an accident.” Xander defended.
“So 'oops' you're a vampire?” Giles asked as he cleaned his glasses.
“Look, Ella was new to this world when she crashed here. She's more than a little telepathic and the first groups of people she came into contact with worked at Ladies and Gentleman's clubs where the customers could get what they wanted if the price was right. I didn't know that was even going on until after I stopped working there.”
“So her first impression of mankind isn't a good one.” Giles said.
“It's where she got her dress sense from too.” Xander admitted. “Don't get me wrong I love how she dresses, but even her more conservative clothes make her look like an off the clock Hooters Girl that's still acting as eye candy.”
“I'm almost scared to meet this girl. Is she here?” Giles asked.
“She's in the bathroom feeding on the early arrivals that came up from the tunnels.” Xander told him. “On the plus side... we smell like very nummy treats to vampires. Which is ironic since we feed on them.”
“Exactly how did you become a vampire?” Giles asked him. “Or Space Vampire... what an odd thing to say. Not to mention those fangs. Are they permanent?”
“The fangs stay extended when you're hungry or sexually aroused.” Xander told him. “That's actually how I got turned. We were going to town on each other and she nicked a vein in... you know. Naturally I flinched pretty badly and she ended up biting her tongue in the process. That caused our blood to mix.”
“I freaked out at first. There was some swelling involved but no pain. Considering the general mood of that evening and the following ones, neither one of us were complaining.” Xander told him. “I started to notice some changes about a week afterward. Well.... besides the swelling.”
“So... you said the fangs come out when you're hungry or... that. Have you eaten?” Giles asked him.
“Oh yeah. Had a trio before I called you.” Xander told him. “She's... kind of flirty.” The teen said as he tapped his temple with a finger. “Might be the whole Sire/Minion thing. She's never turned anyone before. She's technically really old but most of that was in stasis as her ship traveled here.”
“So... what's it like?” Giles asked him.
“Better than the Hyena. Downside is I'm pretty much always at half mast.” Xander told him. “Also the hunger doesn't go away completely. I can feed on a whole pack of vampires and still not be 'full'.”
“What about humans?” Giles asked him.
“Nah.” Xander said with a shake of his head. “They just don't do it for us. Food wise anyways. Besides... we really don't want to start spreading this type of vampirism around. 'Ella's seen what the regular vampires are capable of. The last thing we need is irresponsible people like the two of us.” Xander told him before smiling broadly. “Here she comes now.”
Giles turned his head and froze. “Good lord!” He said softly as he gazed at the otherwordly beauty.
“I know right?” Xander chuckled. “Hell in Hotpants.” He said as 'Ella sat in his lap.
“Hi.” Vampirella said to Giles before kissing Xander.
“Hello.” Giles said softly. “So... what do I tell the others?”
“Not to kill us would be good.” Xander told him.
“I'm really only fond of one type of staking.” Vampirella said as she wiggled in Xander's lap.
“Good lord there are two of them.” Giles said with a shake of his head.
“She's got my sense of humor.” Xander agreed. “Which is good because we're off to the movies.”
“Just don't cause any trouble. Or be arrested for exposure.” Giles told them.
“That only happened the one time.” 'Ella pouted. “It was a big misunderstanding.”
“No it wasn't.” Xander said with a shake of his head. “Trust me, it wasn't.”
“I feel a headache coming on.” Giles sighed.
“And stay out!” The Theater manager shouted at the two.
“I told you the popcorn tub thing was a bad idea.” Xander told 'Ella.
“Still fun though. My hand was already greasy from the butter.” 'Ella grinned.
“Sneak back in tomorrow?” Xander asked her.
“Only if I get to wear a nun outfit.” 'Ella grinned.
“Man... Is it too soon to tell you I love you?” Xander wondered aloud.
“No. No it's not.” She told him. “Let's go get a quick snack and go back to our hotel room.”
“You got it.” Xander told her before tossing her over his shoulder and heading towards the nearest cemetery.
It wasn't far.
