Chapter Four

"Oh dear Lord," Giles exclaimed as he looked over at Elizabeth in shock. "How did you know about all of that?"

Elizabeth looked at him with the same amount of shock. "So you're not denying it then?"

"Ok," Giles began as he rose from his desk, placing his glasses on top of it. "I know this seems like its unrealistic and it's coming as a huge shock to you, but it is in fact true. Vampires, demons, monsters, and all of that--it's all real.

"As long as the earth has been here, there has been good and evil. The evil in the form of demons and vampires. The good came in the form of the Slayer. She alone will fight the vampires, demons, and forces of darkness. When one dies, the next one is Chosen.

"That changed about a year and a half ago. On the Hellmouth, a portal between our dimensions and demon dimensions, of Sunnydale the current Slayer Buffy had an idea that would stop the First Evil. She said using the power of a scythe and an immensely powerful witch, any girl who could be a Slayer, will be a Slayer. Since then, we've been locating these girls and training them through various Councils."

"Um…ok," Elizabeth said as she tried to take in the information. Most of it was still a bit surreal to her. It sort of made sense. If this guy was trying to make a new, supernatural television show, then he would have a very good back-story to it. But if it was actually present in her world…

Elizabeth let out a large sigh. She would need more time to think this job offer through. "I'm sure you're right, and you would be a pleasure to work with, but right now I don't know if I can work with people who believe in this."

"Miss Corday, it's not a matter of faith," Giles said as he reached for a large book behind his desk. He blew small bits of dust off it before handing it to Elizabeth. "There's a variety of demons in there. All of them real."

Elizabeth gave Giles a suspicious glance. She looked through and saw a multifarious amount of demons. Demons with horns, with spikes, covered in green goo. Demons that were small and demons that were tall. "And by working here, I would be susceptible to getting attacked by these things?"

"Just as susceptible as you would working anywhere else," Giles informed her. "I've had the numbers done."

"But if I work here, I'll be trained to fight them?"

Giles shrugged. "In a way, yes. All of our employees know the basics. But you're not chosen to fight them and save the world. You're job is to save those who save the world. The fate of the medical department is the only thing you're in charge of."

Giles carefully sat back down in his chair. "I know this is a lot of information to come flying at you, so I'll give you another few days to think this offer over," he told her. He reached for a post-it pad and a pen. "But here's an idea of what your salary would be," he said as he pushed the pad of paper across towards Elizabeth. "On a yearly basis," Giles added.

Elizabeth's eyes widened as she looked at the six-figure number. Not only were there six numbers written on the page, but they were large numbers. "Are you serious?" she asked.

Giles nodded. "Only because you are new. As you get more experienced in dealing with more supernatural accidents, it will raise. We'll give you a few days to think it over."

"A few days?" Elizabeth asked in shock. "I only need a few seconds. I'll take it."
