The two girls ended up in the centre of town not long before the sun rose. There was only one house with the lights on so they headed there. River knocked on the door and hoped whoever lived there would open up.
“Can I help you…? Drusilla come in!” the girl said. “Bring your friend.”
“William’s childe still lives.”
“Yeah, Angel and Spike got me out before the world ended. We all ended up here,” Harmony supplied. “What about you Dru? Weren’t you still with a Chaos demon?”
“No, left him for dead. Saw forecast of doom, signs pointed to needing to leave. Hopped a ship and ended up in another world.”
River was looking around the strange girl’s house. It was obvious she was a vampire considering she had survived so long but she seemed bizarre by what River had believed vampires would be. She had plenty of unicorns adoring the cases that lined her walls. And it was by far the pinkest house she had ever seen.
“You can spend the day here if you like,” Harmony offered. “Or we have tunnels through to Angel’s lodgings. There are a lot of underground passages here, that way Blondie Bear and Angel can get around if there is trouble.”
“We’ll head to Angel’s,” River spoke up for the first time.
“Okay then,” Harmony said cheerfully. “I’ll show you the way because I was just about to head to work.”
