November 3rd, 1997
“Buffy! Xander’s being taken out of the school by the military!” Willow Rosenberg shouted as she entered the library. Buffy looked up in shock, as did Rupert Gles, Watcher to the Slayer.
“Why?” Buffy asked in shock, “Slow down Willow, take a breath. What’s going on? What do you know?”
“Well, we were in the halls passing the office when some people in uniforms came out and saw Xander. I-I think one of them I’ve seen before…oh! His grandfather.”
Rupert sighed with relief, then Buffy also did, the Watcher nodding, “Ah good, then, then perhaps it’s a family matter…”
The doors to the library opened abruptly to reveal their friend and an older man in uniform who looked around in recognition.
“Hey guys…” their friend said with a wan smile, “Guess you heard?”
Willow and Buffy both ran up and hugged their friend, who turned to Giles without letting go of the girls.
“Hey Giles, I’m moving to Colorado…today.”
“Oh, th-that’s unexpected, Xander. I hope all is well?” the Watcher responded with a half-suspicious look toward the adult.
“Yeah, you could say that,” the young man smiled, “I’m moving to live with my grandfather because of what happened last Friday night?”
The Scoobies looked up at the Halloween reference, the Heart of the Gang continuing, “Yeah, I dressed as grandpa and we both remember most of each other’s secrets. So while Tony and Jessica deal with the police and rehab, I have to move to Colorado Springs so I’m not a security risk.”
Rupert looked to Xander’s grandfather, who seemed a man of character, “A-and what else should we expect?”
“Myself and a select few will keep in touch with you via Alexander here, Doctor Giles. No one else would believe me if I tried to involve official channels. So you can expect Alexander to have a few friends with him when he visits.”
“Oh, then that’s fine, uh…”
“I’m sorry, son, I’m Hammond. Major General George Hammond, US Air Force.”
