6 PM
Six Pack bottles #1 and 2
“No need for an ID… the liquor store’s abandoned. Just like everything else.”
“Booze definitely takin’ the edge off the mind numbin’ fear.”
Six Pack bottles #3 and 4
“Tch… I never even bothered to keep count. Wha’bout you?”
“Uh…” He counted off on his fingers, running numbers in his head. “Let’s see…. Two.”
Six Pack bottles #5 and 6
“D’ya ever think we’d do it again?”
“I’d have to be a lot drunker to even talk about it.”
“We’re outta beer.”
“Guess I’m not thinking, then.”
She looked at his pants, “Yeah y’are.”

8 PM
“Full house,” Dawn declared, placing her cards down in the middle of the circle of the potentials and Andrew. Whimpering, the single male looked own at his five cards, clutching them to his chest and shaking his head.
“Come on, Andrew.” Amanda egged.
Vi poked him in the shoulder. He shook his head more vigorously.
Dawn sighed and snatched the cards away revealing his measly pair of twos.
A chorus of “Oooooh”s erupted from the circle of girls, Vi was turning red, Amanda had a slight smirk on her lips.
“Alright Andrew.” Dawn said, “Time to lose the Power Rangers boxers.”

10 PM
Willow stared at her reflection in the bathroom mirror. Looked at her eyes, her skin her hair, every detail, and realized just how tired she looked. She hadn’t actually stopped and looked in the mirror for a very long time, because for a very long time she didn’t want to see the person staring back at her.

And as she stared, a second face appeared in the mirror, leaning on her shoulder, and arms slipped around her waist.  It wasn’t a perfect picture, she thought, but still she smiled. Being unalone was a little thing that was a big improvement.

11 PM
Buffy sat out on the back porch, a mug of cocoa clasped in her hands getting progressively colder as she ignored it. Sitting beside her with an equally ignored cup of tea sat Giles.
“When do you think this all happened?” She asked.
“What exactly is ‘all happened’?”
“This… this house full of people, this wannabe army, the people dying, the end of the world?” she prompted with a wave of her hand saying she could go on and on.
“The beginning,” he said as he removed his glasses for cleaning, “I believe… was when you first moved to Sunnydale.”

Enjoyed these, the Andrew one was a hoot and I don't like Andrew. Lovely Giles and Buffy interaction.
