Arriving at the gate Willow and Will offered Xander a cup of coffee
as a peace offering and took a seat. One on each side of him.
Willow reached up and tucked a stray curl behind his ear.
She knew this trip was off on a bad start and she really
did want it to turn around.
"Forget all about it Xan. Everybody else has."
Xander glanced over at Will who winked and grinned.
Xander groaned and shook his head.
"Only me. Why does this shit always happen to me?"
Before she had a chance to respond, a flight attendant dressed
in a perky little blue pants suit picked up the microphone and
started her oft repeated announcements.
"Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen. We will begin boarding
immediately starting with passengers needing assistance, small children
and all rows in first class."
Xander leaped to his feet and began collecting all their carry on
bags. He then rushed for the loading ramp before she was half way
through her speech. It was just more gobbledy goop about
over head compartments. Crap he had heard before.
Hand in hand his sister and lover followed close behind refusing
to look at each other for fear the uncontrollable giggles would
again give them away.
Leading the way, Xander boarded the jumbo jet and found their seats.
He was relieved to note that in first class there were only two seats
to a side. He and Will would at least have a little private time while
Willow would be across the aisle.
Where he irritatingly felt she belonged.
At the last minute he stepped aside letting Will slide into the window
seat. "You sit there, Baby that way you can nap and no one will
Xander looked pointedly at Willow who rolled her eyes and
found her seat across the aisle.
The rest of the plane filled quickly and Xander chose to pretend the
other passengers weren't pointing and snickering as they passed.
30 minutes later and they were taxying down the runway.
Xander was concerned to see that all signs of humor had left
Will's face and he now shifted from side to side attempting to
He seemed to be in a lot of pain.
Fishing through his case he found the pain pills and asked the
stewardess for a cup of water.
Will removed the gauze, took the pills and let Xander arrange
him around for a nice long nap.
Xander fluffed the travel pillow and tucked the blanket
lovingly around him.
With all the tending to Will, Xander had not noticed that a
large, burley, Neanderthal type had claimed the seat next to
Willow and was in the process of charming her pants off.
Xander checked his watch for the 23rd. time and yes, they had
only been in the air for three hours. Seemed longer. Seemed
a lot longer. Will had curled up and dozed off immediately.
Xander had considered taking a couple of those pills himself.
Xander loved watching Will sleep. He snored and snuffled softly
like a puppy. It was a good thing Xander loved him so much
because this certainly wasn't the way he had envisioned the long
cross country and over seas trip. He kissed Will's head lightly.
The only thing worse than the tedium of the trip was the nonstop
twittering and giggling Willow and her Neanderthal were doing
across the aisle.
He couldn't remember ever hearing her act this.
Like an 11 year old girl at a Sangaya concert.
He wondered just what the fuck could be so all fuckin' interesting
"Cuse me Darlin' I need to see a man about a horse."
Willow laughed as though she had never heard anything
as funny in her life while her seat mate stepped over
her legs and headed up the aisle to the lavatory.
"Oh my God, Xander. Isn't he just the coolest guy you have
Xander frowned. "Yea Gidget, he's just the ginchiest.
You two going to the sock hop together?"
Temporarily the smile dropped from her lips as she reached over and
slapped his arm, but just as quick the grin returned.
"Nope, you can't spoil this for me. His name is Teak and he was in
the Marines and then he worked on an oil rig and that's why he is so
big and strong and dreamy. Then he won this trip on a radio show
and he is going to London too."
Willow finished her speech with a deep sigh and kept her half hooded
eyes on the restrooms at the front of the plane.
Xander was in shock. Was this Willow? His Willow?
His level headed no nonsense, don't bull shit me, Willow?
"Yea, well don't get too attached. Once we get there we are renting
a car and heading for the estate so you and Mr. Tweek will not
be spending time together. Besides I'm sure he has a whole sightseeing
trip planned out and we are here on business. Serious business."
Sticking a terse pink painted little fingertip inches from his nose
Willow shook her finger. "It's Teak not Tweek and you be nice
Mister Grumpy Pants. Anyway, I kinda already gave him the address
and he is going to come out to the estate one evening this week
to see me."
"WHAT? No! Willow, how could you do that? We don't even
know what is going on there. It might not be safe. Besides he may be a
psycho serial killer. A notorious cat burgler. A Republican!"
Before Willow had the chance to reply, Teak stepped out of the
bathroom and smiled as he returned. Although Xander hated to admit
it, he was a good looking guy. If you like that type. Which he didn't
Willow waited till he was settled back in his seat with his belt buckled
and decided it was time for introductions.
"Teak, this is my brother, Xander. Xan, this is Teak."
Teak leaned around Willow and stuck out his hand.
"How's it going?"
Xander accepted it and matched it firm for firm.
"Good. It's good."
Suddenly Teak's eyes and smile lit up like a neon beer sign.
"Hey, I know you. Weren't you the guy at the metal detector
that held everybody up with the tube of lube?"
Xander groaned and slid down in his seat.
