Joyce couldn’t deal with the questions anymore, she needed some answers. What was her daughter caught up in, what pressures had lead to her claiming that she was something called a Slayer, and that the safety of the world rested on her shoulders. Rupert Giles was the man with the answers.
She had little trouble making her way to his house, and only a moment’s qualm about going right inside. He’d offered to try to explain things if she wanted to listen, but at the time, she’d been too angry, too distraught over Buffy’s disappearance. The house seemed oddly quiet, and she wondered where he could be.
She made her way to the top of the stairs, and heard a small noise from the bedroom. She wasn’t quite certain what prompted it, but she reached out to the doorknob, and flung the door to his bedroom open.
The door opened, creating a draft that had the interesting side effect of pulling open the front of his robe, allowing her to see… Rupert Giles. There was absolutely nothing else under his robe but Rupert Giles. Her jaw dropped.
“Oh my…” Joyce gasped, her eyes wide. The questions were all gone now.
