Dean woke up really early the next morning to hair tickling his nose. He opened his eyes and saw the back of Buffy’s head. He was holding her body tight to his. That was the best night’s sleep he’d had in a long time. He slid his arm from around her waist and brushed her hair out of his face. When he went to move she moaned and he stopped. His arm was trapped under her pillow so he lifted it up slightly and pulled his arm out. He threw on some clothes and turned back to the bed. The headboard was busted where Buffy had been gripping it. He smiled and sat down on the bed next to Buffy. He watched her for a few minutes before she started to stir.
Buffy wasn’t comfortable anymore. She opened her eyes and saw Dean sitting on the edge of the bed looking at her. “Morning beautiful.” He had a cocky smile on his face and was already dressed.
“Morning.” She sat up taking the covers with her. “What time is it?” She glanced at the clock on the nightstand and groaned.
“Why don’t you throw some clothes on and show me where I can get some food in this place?” He started slowly sliding the blankets off of her and she let him. When she went to reach for her clothes though, he stopped her. “I think I changed my mind. It seems like such a waste to let you get dressed right now.” The kiss he gave her was very deep and passionate. She laid back pulling him down with her.
Sam woke up to muffled noises in the hallway. It took him a minute to realize where he was, but when he did he jumped out of bed and threw his shoes on. He opened the door to his room and walked out to find the noises her heard earlier were Xander and Willow talking. “Come on Will. It’s good to get away from here sometimes and make with the fun.”
“I don’t know Xander. I just got back from helping the coven track down girls, I have a ton of work to do here, I haven’t been sleeping well lately, and honestly, I just don’t feel like it.”
He put his arm around her shoulder, “Come with me tonight and I will help you with your work tomorrow.”
She smiled knowing that the only reason he offered to help was because he knew he wouldn’t be able to. It was an offer he knew he wouldn’t have to follow through with. She nodded, “Alright. I’ll go.”
“Whew hoo! Maybe Buff will come too.”
“When did she get back?”
Sam smiled and decided he would answer her, “Last night and she brought a couple of strays home with her.”
They spun around at the sound of his voice, “Sam!?” they said in unison. Willow ran up and gave him a hug followed by Xander.
“How have you guys been?”
“We’re great! How about you? What have you been doing? Is Dean here too?”
Sam laughed. “It’s okay. I’m okay for the most part. I’ve been traveling with Dean for the last few months looking for our dad. Dean is here too, but he’s probably still asleep.”
Xander slapped Sam on the back, “Good to see ya man. Hungry?”
“Yeah, actually I’m starving.” His stomach had been screaming at him since last night but he didn’t want to leave his room and not be able to find it again.
Willow grabbed him by the arm and started leading him down the stairs, “Ooh have you seen Sarah yet? She does most of the cooking.”
His stomach did a little flip which had nothing to do with being hungry. “No, you guys are the first I’ve seen since I got here. We crashed as soon as Buffy showed us our rooms.”
“So how is everyone else? Where’s Oz?”
Willow stumbled a little on one of the steps, “Oz and I broke up freshman year of college. I haven’t seen him in years. Everyone is good. Dawnie is at college but she comes home a lot. Giles is still British. Faith is…well you’ll see.”
“I thought Faith was evil?”
“Not anymore. She is back with the good guys.”
They rounded the corner and ran into a group of girls talking about the best way to take down a Turok-Han vampire. Another girl was naming demons from pictures that her friend was showing her. Willow and Xander just kept walking like this was a normal thing to see. This was a very different kind of school.
Willow opened a set of double doors leading into a large cafeteria. There were people everywhere eating, talking, and laughing. Sam spotted Giles sitting at a far corner table with Faith and another guy. They started walking toward the table when Giles looked up and spotted them. His expression was one of surprise. Faith was waiving her hand in front of Giles’s face and turned to see what he was looking at. She had a confused look on her face before it dawned on her who he was.
“Well if it isn’t the littlest Winchester all grown up.”
“Hello Faith. Nice to see you’re not evil anymore. How’ve you been?”
“Five by five.” She stood up.
Sam’s eyes almost popped out of his head. “You’re pregnant!?”
She laughed, “Yeah it’s new. Figure…what the hell right?” She gestured to the man sitting next to her, “This is Robin Wood.” He stood and shook Sam’s hand. “He’s the one to blame for ruining me. Making me all monogamous and crap.”
Sam appraised him, “You’re brave.”
Robin laughed, “No, I’m just that good.” Sam laughed with him and Faith hit him playfully.
Giles stood and shook Sam’s hand next. “It’s good to see you again Sam. There isn’t any trouble we should know about is there?”
Sam shook his head, “No trouble. Buffy brought Dean and I here to talk to Sarah.”
“Oh, very well then.”
The door opened next to them and out walked Sarah. She was followed by several girls carrying huge dishes filled with food. Sam’s heart started to race. Part of him had been expecting to see the cute young girl that he dated in Sunnydale. Instead there was a beautiful woman standing there. She had to be close to 6 foot by now with her dark brown hair reaching almost to her butt. The skirt she was wearing had slits up to her hips on both sides which showed off her long legs very well. His staring was interrupted by his brother coming up behind.
“Hey Sammy. I see you found the food.” He slapped Sam on the back, “Hey guys, long time no see.”
Sarah turned and noticed the Winchesters for the first time. There was a squeal of excitement, a ‘Sam!’ and Sarah jumped on him, wrapped her legs around him, and hugged him. He didn’t have time to think about it, he wrapped his arms around her and squeezed. She jumped down quickly and jumped on Dean.
“What are you doing here!?”
“Getting attacked by a crazy girl.” Dean gave her the once over, “Look at you all grown up. You’re lookin’ good sweetheart.”
He winked and she rolled her eyes at him. “You haven’t changed at all have you?”
“Nope. And not planning on it anytime soon.” Right then he caught site of Faith’s belly. “Buffy said you were pregnant.” He shook his head, “Didn’t believe it.”
“Next time you should listen to me.” Buffy had walked up behind Dean. “What’s for breakfast? I’m starving!”
