There was a knock on the door. Xander put the cup of juice he had in his hand, and his newspaper down. He really hoped it wasn't an annoying sales man. It was his day off and he planned spending as much of it at home as he could. Xander sighed and got up and went to the door. Usually he would stare into the peep hole until he thought they meant no harm, but today he just wanted to get whatever this was, over as soon as possible.
He opened the door and his facial features hardened. Standing in his door way was none other than Buffy Summers. Six years ago he would have been happy to see her, but he was decidedly less happy now. She looked the same as she had the last time he had seen her, except for a few more lines on her face. He shook himself out of his thoughts.
"What are you doing here? “he demanded angrily. Whereas, Buffy was smiling nervously she responded with
"I was kind of hoping for a hi." she raised her hand up nervously.
"What are you doing here?” Xander repeated with a growl. Buffy cringed slightly, and smiled overly cheerful.
"I wanted to see you." Xanders face didn't change at all; the hostility was still there plain to see.
"Why?" her smile toned down slightly.
"I haven't seen you in six years, I've missed my Xander shaped friend." she said seemingly earnestly. Xander however turned around in a circle and snorted.
"Are you just going to leave me out here, or you going to invite me in." she asked. He was silent for a minute thinking, and then backed away from the door, the Sunnydale version of saying come in. She came in and looked around the house.
"Nice house." Xander didn't say anything, just starred at Buffy in a way that seemed to make her really uncomfortable. Then as Buffy starred at Xander she suddenly exclaimed.
"Oh my gosh Xander you have two eyes." she reached towards his eyes but he batted her hand back.
"Xander?" she looked hurt, touching her finger like it had been burned.
"Yes I have two eyes." Xander said annoyed.
Just then a girl about 5 skipped in the room and skipped over to Xander. She had black hair and hazel eyes and looked quite a bit like Xander.
"Daddy, Daddy! Can we go to the store and buy ice cream." she suddenly seemed to notice Buffy.
"Daddy? Whose is she?" The look on Buffy face transformed from confusion to shock.
"Em." Xander said with a sigh, he knew what Buffy was going to ask.
"Daddy? You have a daughter why didn't you tell me?" she looked hurt.
"First of all Buffy, I don't owe you anything. And second of all you can't just come here, after all this time and demand answers."
"I knew things were bad with us, but I never thought that you wouldn't tell us when you had a daughter.
"As always you underestimated how mad I am at you." He said fighting to keep from yelling at Buffy in front of Emily. She didn't seem to notice and asked another question.
"Does Willow know?"
"I haven't seen Willow, since the last time I saw you." Xander replied through gritted teeth.
"Why haven't you told me?"
"You didn't and don't deserve to know." Xander snapped. Buffy indigence faded to sorrow.
"What! What Buffy!" Xander losing his fight not to yell.
"Daddy? Why are you mad? Did I do something wrong?" Xander deflated a little and knelt so he was at Em's eye level.
"No of course not sweetie." he said softly.
"Then why are you yelling? “She said her bottom lip jutting out a bit. Xander smiled down at her and said softly and earnestly.
"I'm sorry sweetie, I promise not to yell anymore and I promise I'm not mad at you."
"Ok!" she said once again perky she looked at Buffy. Buffy was staring at Xander and the longer he starred the more angry she seemed to get.
"Well what?" Xander said not having any clue, and not really caring what she had to say. Buffy scoffed and said.
"Whose is she?"
"Sweetie the grownups have to talk." Xander had to force his voice to be calm, when what he really wanted to do was throttle her.
"Okay Daddy." she obliviously skipped out of the room. Once Xander was sure that she was gone he turned to Buffy very angrily.
"Whose she is, is delicate matter that you shouldn't have brought up in front of her." she seem slightly chagrined.
"Well she's not here now, can you tell me now?"
"Is she Faith's?"Xander gave a short laugh.
"I haven't seen Faith since we separated ways after the hospital let me go. And if you've forgotten, the last time I was with her she tried to strangle me shortly afterwords, not a great basis for a relationship." Buffy scoffed.
"That's never stopped you before."
"It's never stopped you either, in fact I seem to remember you like your boyfriends room temperature." Buffy opened her mouth to say something then closed it; she took a few deep breaths and then said.
"Look I know it may not seem like it, but I didn't' come here to fight.."
"Then why did you come here?" snapped Xander.
"To see how you were doing?"she said earnestly.
"Like you care."
"I do care." Xander believed her for about a second then it wasn't so much like he didn't believe her but he was so mad that he didn't care.
"Really you care?" he challenged her.
"Why is that so hard for you to believe?"
"I don't know, maybe because all I tried to do is help you, and threw me out!" Xander yelled.
"I did not throw you out! You left, you’re the one that left us, and yet you think you’re the one who was wronged."
"I can't believe you’re saying that this is my fault." Xander said softly, after all this time she still thought it was his fault, he may have left but he wouldn't have left if she hadn't pushed him out. Buffy opened her mouth and then starred at him for a few second and let her breath go.
"I wish we wouldn't fight." she deflated a little, and she looked a little less like the slayer who pushed him out, and a little more like the slayer who had been his best friends for years.
"Me neither." Xander admitted, he had missed her these many years, there had been several times when he had the phone in his hand, but just couldn't dial the number. Sometimes he had half dialed the number and then hung up. He just couldn't ever finish the call.
"I wish things had been different." Xander didn't say anything, part of him wished that too but mostly he was glad things ended up this way because of Em. Apparently noting his discomfort she attempted to change the subject, unfortunately what she changed it wasn't going to go any better than the last one.
"So Xander what do yo do for a living?" Xander know she wasn't going to like the answer, so he started towards his study.
"Follow me.” Xander said without looking to see if she was following him. When he heard her come in he closed the door. He sat on his desk and waited for her to sit in the chair across him.
"So why did you relocate us to here, what do you do?" she said curiously.
"I'm a hunter." Xander stated plainly.
"What!" she said outraged.
"I. Am. A. Hunter." Xander said slowly in a condescending tone.
"But Xander there's a reason...I mean your normal." she looked worried and angry.
"Every hunter is normal, but that doesn't stop them does it? No they kick ass and take names without supernatural powers." Xander said proudly glad of his chosen profession, no matter what she or anyone else had to say about it.
"But you’re." Buffy trailed off.
"Go on; go on Buffy continuing telling me how useless in a fight, I am though you don't even know me anymore. Go on, tell me how I couldn't save anyone, and even though I saved many people's lives in these past few years go on tell me!" Xander shouted.
"That not what I meant." Buffy said loudly but not quite shouting.
"What did you mean?" Xander snarled.
"I just meant it's dangerous."
"Too dangerous for me, because I don't have powers."
"I know about hunters too, and I know that they don't have long life spans, most of them die within 20 years from when they start hunting."
"Yeah and how long do slayers usually live a year or two? Even now with many vampire slayers you still lose at least 1 a year, so how is it any different."
"Because!" Buffy shouted and Xander shook his head partially from anger and partially because it was a very childish thing to do.
That's when the door opened and Em danced into the room, she was wearing her princess outfit and danced all around the room. She came up to him.
"I'm a princess." Xander couldn't help but smile she was so adorable.
"Yes you are Em." she danced around the room a bit more then she curtsied, and danced out of the room. Xander closed the door behind her, in case Buffy wanted to talk about private things again. He looked at her again she looked contemplative.
"Does she knew what you do?" despite the fact that Xander felt like he didn't owe her any answers he answered her anyways.
"She if you mean Em will know as soon as she old enough to understand it."
"Buffy, this isn't your decision you have absolutely no say in this matter!"
"Buffy you have no say in the matter and that's final!" Xander started moving away and Buffy shouted.
"Where are you going?" Xander turned around noticing that Buffy wasn't following him, he went to her and grabbed her arm.
"To show you out!" he started again towards the door and Buffy let him drag her to the door but then planted her feet.
"What if I don't want to leave?" Xander couldn't take it anymore, her barging into his house and thinking she was entitled to be part of his life when it was her fault that
"Buffy get out of my house!" she was visibly bristling.
"Fine but if you ever take the stick out, and want to find me I'll be at the Holiday Inn, room 12."
"I very much doubt you'll be seeing me any time soon." Xander said angrily and Buffy glared at him and left through the door.
