Secret’s Out

"I'm not angry. Really. I'm not." Xander said.

"You keep saying that, but I have the feeling that it's not true." Willow bit her lip.

"I'm...not...god dammit Willow! What did I tell you about magical experiments?! I'm supposed to be meeting Daniel in an hour! What am I supposed to tell him? Huh?!"

"Well, it's not that bad." Giles muttered.

Xander glared at him.

"I. Cant. See."

"Could’ve fooled me." Giles shrunk away from Xander's supposedly blind glare and cleaned his glasses.

"Everything looks funny. I can see you. I can see Willow. I just can't see the table that I know I'm sitting at or the damn wall. Willow. Fix. It."

"I'll try."

Thirty minutes later and they were no closer to fixing his sight. He had to leave in fifteen minutes or he was going to be late. He had the feeling that they would not be able to fix him in time. Xander didn’t want to cancel their date, but it looked like that's where this evening was heading. He sighed when Willow poked the side of his head with some unidentified herb.

Daniel was going to be so upset.


Daniel was pissed off. One of the machines in the medical lab exploded for some reason and he had been covered in gook. Then he had to rush through a shower only to be stopped by Jack in the hallway for a pre-date chat. He managed to get away from Jack only to be barred from leaving the base at all. Some unidentified alien was in the base so they had to shut it down. He was only a few feet away from the exit when the gates slammed shut.

All that work and he couldn't go on his date! What was he going to tell Xander?

'Oh sorry Xander. An alien is in SGC so I can't make our date. How about next month?' Daniel could see that going over rather well. He scowled as he reached for his phone. He looked at it in surprise when it buzzed.



"Hey Xander I was just about to call you. I-"

"Yeah me too. I can't make our date tonight. Sorry."

"Huh? Oh...I was about to say that. I'm kind of held up at work today."

"Yeah...Will has me helping her with some stuff tonight. I really am sorry though. Do you think you can get some time off next week?"

Daniel bit his lip.

"I don't think so. We've got a big project coming up." his regret was clear in his voice. Xander sighed.

"I guess I'll see you next month?"

"Yeah...bye Xander."

"Bye Daniel."

Xander hung up the phone with a sigh.

"I'm so sorry Xander! I should've just-"

"It’s fine Wills. He's too busy tonight too. Just...just fix my eyes okay?"


Two minutes later his eyes were fixed. Xander's shoulder slumped in defeat.


-Next month-

"Xander, I'm sorry but I can't make out date tonight. We've got a situation and...I'm sorry."

Xander sat on the edge of the bed and took off his fancy date night shoes.

"It’s okay. I'm sure we’ll find some time soon. Just call me when you have the time to chat."

"Okay. Good bye."


Xander unbuttoned his shirt and ran a hand through his hair. He had been totally prepared for this date. He had stayed away from all demon goop, magical spells, and malfunctioning washers. Unfortunately, his date cancelled anyways. The phone calls were nice, but...they weren't really enough. Xander figured it would be easier if most of his time wasn't taken up by demons or apocalypses. Then they would be able to meet up anytime and not just when the demon population calmed.

Xander didn't want to break up with Daniel. He would just have to find a way to make this work.


Daniel glared at the hostile alien as he shot him. Stupid. Stupid aliens. All he wanted to do was go on a date with an amazing guy, but nooo they decided to launch a stupid attack tonight. He wished he could tell Xander about his real job. Deep space radar telemetry. Bah. More like exploring space.

Daniel bet it would make great conversation. Once he got Xander to believe him that is...


"What the hell is that?!" jack pointed to the ugly giant monster like thing. It looked like a cross between the abominable snowman and a giant lizard. An ugly not so little, little bugger.

"Call in back up!" the general yelled to a soldier. "Code b659 omega."

Two minutes later a wind came out of nowhere. There was a bright flash of light and then there were people in the SGC. And then they were attacking the ugly lizard thing.

Daniel was focusing more on his boyfriend then the lizard though. There Xander was in his date clothes and an ax attacking the not alien. He shouted out orders to two of the females with him and they followed it without question. It wasn't long before the thing was down and Xander's axe was lodged into its head.

Xander pulled back the axe and slung it over his shoulder whistling. His whistled fizzled out when it landed on SG1. More specifically his pseudo boyfriend.


They just stared at him.

"You never date anyone normal do you, Daniel?" Jack asked.

The brunet next to Xander smirked and looked at him.

"I was just about to say that to Xander. Your boy is human right?"
