CH 9: Listen to Teacher

CH 8 Costume: Tom Sawyer from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Xander growled, pulling clothes from his closet looking for the old cargos and black shirt. A green vest was already on the bed with his two dollar find from Ethan's.

The troll wanted everyone to dress as teachers? Fine. He'd dress as a teacher.

The troll would regret leaving the loophole about them having to be real.

Now where were his sandals?



"Tell me how to break the jutsu you placed on the children."

"It'll break at dawn on its own!"

"NOT GOOD ENOUGH! TELL ME HOW TO BREAK THE JUTSU YOU PLACED ON THE CHILDREN!" The last of the teacher's legendary patience was well and truly gone.

"The bust! Break the bust!"

Disgusted with the man a swift blow knocked him out as a kunai flew and knocked the bust from the pedestal.

"Hey Buffy! Try, whoops, one sec!"

A quick kick and a spin later and three more vamps were dust.

"Right, try kicking three degrees further to your left next time you try that flip move."

"Got it Xander!"

Grinning she spun back into the fray. At first she'd been a bit doubtful about how useful any teacher could be in an actual fight. He had given her a smile, walked out and returned two hours later with a video.

That fixed any doubts she had.

Since then he'd been helping her with her forms, correcting little things that Giles missed, helping perfect what was already there.

And he was so much more fun to spar with now!

The next vampire set himself for her new favorite flip move. She watched, grinning gleefully as the vampire flew twice the distance as the last time.

"Nice one, Buff!"

The Slayer grinned back at her new teacher/friend as he smiled and rubbed the new scar across his nose in embarassment.

Her eyes roved over Xander when he wasn't looking.

Who knew that being a Xander-shaped comic geek of a friend could pay off so well!?

Or look so good?
