"Eeek!" Willow made a yelping noise as a clawed hand thrust upwards from the new grave, followed shortly after by another hand, a head in full vamp-face, and a pair of shoulders.
"Let me help you out," Xander leaned forward and reached out a hand to the newly rising vampire, hiding a stake behind his leg in his other hand.
The fledgling vamp gave him a surprised look, blinking dirt out of its eyes, then muttered something that sounded like, "Thanks."
"No prob," Xander grasped the vamps wrist firmly, and then leaned back, pulling it forward and outwards from the grave. There was a moist crunching sound as Cordelia shoved a sharpened mop handle through its exposed back, followed by a startled look from the vamp and an explosion of dust.
"Score," Oz remarked.
"And that, ladies and germs, is how it's done down on the Hellmouth," Xander said. He picked himself up from where the sudden release of tension had dumped him on his butt when the vamp dusted as Cordelia came around the headstone.
Cordelia took a short bow, "And I would like to thank all the little
people who have come together to make this moment possible."
"Now, that wasn't very sporting, people," said a voice from behind them.
"Uh oh," Oz said. The four turned to see a trio of very non
-new vampires standing a few yards away.
“Well put,” Xander said, sourly.
