TITLE: A Price Above Rubies - Part Three
PAIRING: Xander/William (Yes, again, I know!) - Eventually Oz & Wesley
SUMMARY: Set in Victorian London. Xander is half-Indian, half-British - he's come to London to open a brothel, which he hopes will become the city's preferred establishment. William is a whore in the employ of another brothel.
Now prostitutes are beginning to turn up dead - it's 1888 and Jack The Ripper has begun his killing spree. Is William in danger, or involved in even worse ways?
A/N: In the first couple of chapters more will be revealed about Xander's heritage, why he fled India, as well as why he's chosen to become a brothel-owner. You'll also find that I've taken some liberties with historical fact. The title, I believe, comes from the Talmud - which says something to the effect that the one you love should be held above all others, that their value should be "a price above rubies".

I'd be very interested to see if this one is something you'd like to see continued.
