Standing on the steps, all three stared back at the manor house till
finally, after sucking in a deep breath and blowing it back out, Xander
decided it was time to make a move.
"Look, all the other rats seem to have abandoned the ship so only
your cousin Billy must be left. I say we just march in there and toss
his lazy ass out. You two on board with that?"
Willow stepped up quickly.
"Sounds like a plan bro. Will?"
Will grabbed both Willow's and Xander's hands.
"One for all and all for one. Just like the Musketeers."
Xander squeezed his hand tightly.
"Just remember, this is real, not a story. You watch your back and
let me take the lead. O.k?"
Will lifted himself up on his tip toes and kissed Xander lightly on the lips.
"Gotch. Lead the way D'Artagnan"
Xander groaned but reached for the solid front door and gingerly pushed
it open. Sticking his head in he found the open entry space huge and dark.
He let his eyes scan quickly as his ears strained for any sound.
There was nothing.
Signaling to the others they all three stepped inside.
Will was overwhelmed by what he saw and it took all his strength
not to weep.
The beautiful manor house had been trashed.
The wonderful antique furniture was smashed and what wasn't
destroyed had obviously been stolen. Stained places on the walls
were testament to missing pieces of valuable art that had once
One thing was sure. In the short time Billy had been living there he
must have thrown some legendary parties.
Realizing Will was getting sidetracked by the things around them,
Xander grabbed him by the shoulders and shook.
"Not now, Will. We have to stay focused. All this can be straightened
out later. Right now we need to find the weasel that has taken up
residence on your property."
Xander could see his eyes clear and his focus return. He knew
Will was back with them.
"Think, Baby, in all this huge house do you have any idea where he
Will dropped his head as he considered the question. Just before
shaking his head "no", his face lit up.
"Yes. When ever he came here as a child I always used to catch
him sneaking up to my Grandfathers rooms. He said he wanted
to live like that when he grew up. I don't think he realized till he got
older that he had no claim on property that was on my Mother's side
of the family. Come on. If he's here I'll bet that is where he is."
Will rushed to the massive center staircase and bounded up the stairs
two at a time. Xander could see how comfortable and 'at home' he was
here and it only served to feed into his insecurities and fears that Will
would want to stay.
"God damn it Will, wait. I told you to stay behind me."
Xander dashed after him, but Will was already up the stairs and
waiting at the head of the long hallway.
As soon as the other two were with him Will whispered harshly,
waving his arms and pointing.
"Shh. This way."
Quickly and quietly they moved down the wide, carpeted
hallway. The doors to the rooms on each side of the hall were
closed and under other circumstances the builder in Xander would
have him happily exploring every inch of the incredible mansion.
Right now, however, he was entirely drawn toward the double
doors at the end of the hall that Will was indicating led to the
Reaching the doors, the three stood to the side and waited.
Each listening for any sound from inside the room or anywhere
else around them.
Xander wiped his sweaty palms on the front of his pants.
He wasn't so much afraid for himself as for Will and Willow.
Xander knew he would lay down his life for his lover and his sister.
They were his family, his life, but what if he wasn't quick enough.
What if this was a trap and Billy was expecting them?
Xander laid his ear flat against the solid thick door and strained to
hear any sound from within. The other two looked at him questioningly.
Xander shrugged his shoulders.
Unable to bear the tension any longer, Willow pushed past her two men
and reached for the door knob. Unlocked, it turned easily. With no
further hesitation she opened the door and stepped into the room.
Instantly she slapped her hand over her nose. The stench in the room
was over powering. It was the smell of body odor, vomit, urine
and way too much unwashed sex.
Her stomach involuntarily dry heaved.
Xander and Will had entered on her heels and were also having a
hard time controlling their reaction to the condition of the room.
Giving their eyes a moment to adjust to the dark Xander found his
way to the long heavy drapes that had been pulled tight against
the light of day.
With a snap of the wrist he went down the row and jerked all
Like flipping a switch the room was flooded in the blinding light of day.
Immediately all eyes turned to the huge four poster bed that sat in
Just as suspected, it was not empty.
In the midst of a mountain of tangled, soiled sheets and blankets
laid a lump with dark blond hair. Laying on his stomach
with his face turned away one leg and one arm stuck out of the
edge of the covers leaving no doubt to the fact that he slept naked.
Any fear Will had been feeling now turned to pure disgust and even
a little shame that this waste of a human being was related to him.
Approaching the bed Will leaned over.
"Billy! Get up! Get your ass out of that bed!"
Without turning his head or questioning who was giving him orders,
Billy buried himself deeper.
"Fuck you. Go away. I'm fuckin' sleeping you moron!"
Before Will could respond Xander took his arm and pulled him
back signaling him with a shake of his head.
Xander had had enough of this whole ridiculous charade.
As far as he was concerned it was "game over"
With one fell swoop Xander jerked the covers off Billy's entire body.
Without waiting to see what Billy would say to this Xander lifted
his foot and painfully kicked the sleeping man directly in the bare
ass knocking him to the floor.
"WHAT THE FUCK? Whoever did that better run cause when
I catch you you're dead meat!"
Xander's laugh was cut short when another head popped out.
"Billy, Honey, what happened?"
The room went quiet.
