The first thing Buffy noticed when she walked into the library was a blonde man. He wasn’t old, but the man was clearly too old to be a student. “Who’s he,” she asked Giles.
“My names Edward,” the man replied, but he didn’t turn around. He just kept looking through Giles’s book collection.
Glaring at Edward, Giles added, “He’s your new watcher.”
Giving the blonde another glance, Buffy asked her mentor, “Is he evil? The last one was evil.”
That caused Edward to chuckle and face her, with an eyebrow arched over glacial eyes. “Whether I’m evil or not has been a matter of much debate, but I don’t have any interest in mass destruction, unlike Mrs. Post.”
Buffy looked him over. His eyes, the way he moved.
He wouldn’t tolerate being blown off under any circumstances, that was clear.
