Chapter 8: Sunnydale
********MEANWHILE IN SUNNYDALE********
Xander and Willow hadn't seen nor heared from Buffy in almost twenty-four hours. After checking to see if she was still alive only to find all of the vampires gone and the statue hadn't swollowed Sunnydale that meant that Buffy must have went to Giles' house. So thats where they were at the moment.
Giles answered the door looking distracted. "Uhm I am kind of busy at the moment, what did you need?" He asked running his free hand through his hair.
"We were wondering if you had heard from Buffy yet?" Willow asked.
Giles shook his head. "No not yet, have you tried going to see if she went home?"
"Not yet," Xander answered. "We should try that Wills."
"You two go on a head and we will meet back up in the library, yes?"
They nodded. "Okay Giles, see you later."
Giles just nodded and shut the door quickly.
"Do you think he is still mourning over Ms. Calender?" Willow asked.
"Probably, so we shouldn't bother him until we have more to go on about Buffy." Xander answered and started back towards Buffy's house.
Inside Rupert Giles' home, in the living room, there tied to dining table chair was none other than Joyce Summers. Taking the knotted sock out of her mouth he proceeded to ask questions about Buffy.
"Where is Buffy?" He demanded.
"I don't know nor do I care." Joyce snarled.
"You do know where she is wether you care or not!"
There was blood coming out of the corner of Joyce's mouth now. Spitting it into Giles' face smiling a evil smile. Wiping the blood and saliva off of his face his anger grew while his patience grew thin.
"You are her mother for God's sake! Tell me where she is dammit!"
"I am NOT her mother! She's no DAUGHTER of mine!"
"What do you mean?" He asked in a low, cold voice. Now he was curious but his face showed no signs of it.
"I mean that I adopted her. I was left barren because of an old ex-boyfriend of mine before I got married to that bastard, Hank." She spat out feeling bitter about the whole situation.
"Where did you adopt her from?"
"We found her at a church in the Bay Area in San Francisco.
"What did you do Joyce?" Giles asked in a cold voice.
"I gave Buffy her birth certificate before throwing her to the curb." She answered with a sneer. "It's no wonder her parents didn't want her, she was raving about vampires and that she was 'the vampire slayer'!"
"Well if you don't believe in vampires maybe Spike can help you believe."
Walking over to the bleach blonde haired vampire he was quick to untie him and Joyce before heading out to his car to find Buffy.
*******BACK AT THE HALLIWELL MANOR**************
"Well, how do you feel Buffy?" Phoebe asked curiously.
"I feel like I am ready to take on a nest of vampires." Buffy grinned. "But first, can you guys show me your powers?"
"Of course we can!" Phoebe agreed with great enthusiasm giving Buffy a sidelong hug.
"Why don't I go first?" Prue asked with a smirk. Prue's head slowly dropped to her chest with her eyes closed. For a few seconds Buffy wondered what in the world was she doing, then all of the sudden Prue was behind her saying hi.
"What the hell?" Buffy asked, startled to see the real Prue still in front of her. And then it clicked and she busted out laughing. "Astral Projection, very impressive!" Buffy said with a grin. When the Astral Prue disappered she looked back at the real Prue still grinning. "So is that your main power Prue or do you have more hidden away?"
"Well my main power is to move objects with my mind."
"Ah, okay that would mean you are telekinetic." Buffy said with a nod of her head. "So what's your power Piper?"
"Well since we are playing show and tell," she said with a smirk, "Watch this." Throwing her now empty coffee cup into the air she then threw up her hands and the cup froze in mid air.
"Oh my god! Did you just freeze that cup in mid air?" Buffy asked shocked and Piper nodded. "Wicked," Buffy exclaimed with a grin.
"If you think that is cool, look around the room." Piper said with a smirk.
Buffy looked around to find a cat sitting on the couch but wasn't moving. She reached toward it to feel its fur only to find out that the cat was real, just frozen in time along with the guys that were in the room. Letting out a shocked giggle, Buffy looked back at Piper, moved her hands again and the cup that was frozen mid-air, blasted into a million pieces. Moving quickly out of the way of any debris that might hurt her, she noticed that the men were now unfrozenand talking to each other and the cat was breathing again looking at Buffy. "Wicked, how did you do that, and what kind of power is that?"
"To put it simple, instead of freezing the molecules, I basically sped up the molecules which caused the cup to explode. Its called molecular combustion." Piper stated with a shrug.
Buffy laughed, exclaiming that power must come in handy. At that Piper smirked and nodded, "It has saved our ass multiple times."
"Okay mine are pretty basic considering the ones that were just shown to you, I'll just tell you. I have the power of premonition which is my main power and I also have the power of levitation." Phoebe said sounding a little put out.
"Oh, come on Phebs, your power of premonition has had to have saved a lot of lives!" Buffy exclaimed.
"Yeah Phoebe, you know we wouldn't be able to do the good that we do without your power!" Prue chimed in.
"You're right, plus it has saved our lives a lot of times." Phoebe agreed.
The clock downstairs struck midnight as Buffy and her sisters with Leo and Andy behind them headed downstairs for a late dinner. After dinner the sisters decided it was safer for Buffy to stay at the manor instead of getting her own place. Once that was settled Phoebe decided that Buffy could bunk with her and everyone settled in for the night.
