Author's Note: A few changes to the Buffyverse: 1) Anya did NOT come back. Xander is still not seeing anyone. 2) Riley doesn't work for the Initiative, he works for someone else alot more evil. 3) Spike isn't chipped. But he decides to help the Slayer and friends anyway.
Author's Note 2: This is a crossover fic. Can you guys guess what it is a crossover with? A life-time supply of cookies to the ones who guess right.
The sound of footsteps echoed off of the metallic walls of the corridor as a tall, muscular form made its way to the door at the opposite end of the hall. Once the man stood outside the door, he shifted the twin manilla folders he held in his right hand to his left, then knocked on the door.
Another man's voice, although muffled by the closed door, called out from inside the room. The new arrival reached down and grasped the doorknob. Opening the door, he walked inside, making sure to close the door securely behind him. The man then turned fully into the light that was generating from the lamp sitting on the lone table positioned in the middle of the room.
He was young, mid-20's, with sandy blonde hair and a clean cut, good guy image. No one would have ever guessed who or what the man holding the folders really was...or his purpose.
The other man,even though he appeared to be in his late 30's had a headful of white hair, with rectangle-shaped, granny-style glasses perched on his nose. He stood behind the table, waiting as the new arrival approached the table. The young man walked up and promptly slammed the folders down on the tabletop.
"What's the meaning of this?" He demanded, gesturing to the objects he had just threw down.
The white haired man simply smirked. "Why agent Finn, I have no idea what you are talking about."
"I'm talking about this!" Riley Finn demanded. Opening up the files to the first page, which showed a picture of a man and a woman, Riley pointed to the female. "I know this girl. I attend classes with her and her friend. I got these with the order that I was to bring them both in for questioning. What is this all about?"
The smirk melted away.
"You know this girl?" The other man picked up the indicated file and examined the picture. "Interesting. Then this should make it easy for you to get close to her then, wouldn't it?"
Riley paused before answering. He had been very shocked when he had recieved his orders from headquarters that morning. He was to isolate and contain Willow Rosenberg and some guy named Alexander Harris and bring them back to this man standing before him. He knew that Willow was friends with that blonde, what was her name? Oh yeah, Buffy. Riley had really began to warm up to them both, and had thoroughly enjoyed Buffy's company. But this was direct orders, and as much as he liked Buffy, he valued his life even more. He knew that if he disobeyed this man, then he would not live to regret it.
Resolving himself, Riley stood at attention and saluted. "Yes, sir, very easy." Then pivoted on his heel and walked out of the room, determined to carry out his orders.
