Feedback: Would love feedback on it.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but the plot. I bend to Joss Whedon's will and try my best not to murder his characters.
Summary: What if Buffy had to go out and look for Cordy and Oz instead of looking for Xander and Willow when Spike kidnaps them.
Warnings: It's AU. Xander gets vamped. There is A LOT character death in the non-vampy way in this chapter. Then there is a good amount of torture. Also, I'm not good at typing British accents, so use your imagination when reading for Spike. This is my first Vamp!Xander fic, so be gentle.
Notes: WIP - Part 1, Part 2, Part 3
Cordy closed the book, "How will books help us find Xander and Willow? I can't believe I'm saying this, but we need Buffy."
Giles took off his glasses and cleaned them, "I have been trying to call, but I get no answer. Of course, Buffy has probably left town again or something."
"Xander." Oz said.
Everyone turned to see Xander standing there. Buffy's limp body was in his hand, he hadn’t even bothered to dress her. He was smiling. He threw her at Giles, who backed away, letting the body hit the floor with a thud. Spike came in and inspected Xander's work before hopping over the counter, stuffing all the weapons they had into a duffle bag.
"This is it, luv?" He said to Xander.
"Giles keeps his shiniest weapons in the book cage." Xander smiled at them. "Hey, everyone. Good to see you. I'm here to kill you, hope that's okay."
Giles pointed at Spike then Buffy, "You! You killed her then turned Xander!"
Spike looked at the slayer's body, "Got it all wrong. I turned him, then he killed her. Was his idea to bring the body. He was made for this. I think it's his true calling."
"We'll have to get Willow to re-ensoul him." Cordy said.
Xander smiled and licked his lips, "Willow tasted like cotton candy and strawberries."
Oz lunged at him, maybe if he was a werewolf, he could have taken him, but he was human and Xander caught him easily. He snapped his neck and threw him aside.
"What did Buffy taste like, pet?" Spike was walking out of the cage. All the weapons in the library were stuffed into the bags. Then he looked at Oz's body with a strange smile on his face.
"She tasted bitter. Like lemons that had sat out too long, but it was a head rush and I enjoyed it. I enjoyed it a whole lot."
Cordy stomped her feet, "Great! Eaten by a vampire! I knew this would happen if I hung around you people too long."
Xander's laugh was cold, "Sweetheart," he addressed her. "I'm pretty much full. I'm just going to snap your pretty little neck."
Spike pouted, "Luv, you promised me a show."
"Did I?" He said like he never made a promise.
"Don't tease, baby."
“Now see here,” Giles said, stepping forward. “You are not allowed to come in here and just…”
“Kill you all?” Xander finished. “Face it, Giles. You failed me, you failed Buffy, you failed Willow, and you failed everyone else. But, hey, I’m a forgiving guy. I’ll let you join them.”
Xander handed Cordy to Spike, who struggled against his tight grip. Xander walked over to Giles. Giles held up a cross and Xander hissed. He knocked Giles back, his eyes filled with anger.
“Xander, I know you’re still in there.”
“Silly, naïve fool! I am beyond Xander now. Could your doughnut boy take out a slayer? Nope, I don’t think so. Now, go quietly or my mercy is going to run completely out.”
“Just… just let me re-ensoul you, Xander. Once you get your soul back, I’m sure…”
Xander picked him up and threw him across the room, “I don’t want it back!”
“You tell him, luv.” Spike leered.
Xander walked up to Giles’ body and kicked it. He huffed and snapped his neck for good measures, just in case he had somehow survived the brutal throw. He looked over at Cordy, she was whimpering. He glared at her.
“I honestly don’t feel like playing anymore. Just snap her neck, Spike. These people are pissing me off. Re-ensoul me. What self respecting vampire would willingly do that to themselves? Besides, I have to be home for dinner.”
Spike pouted, “You promised. This is the bird, isn’t she? The loud mouthed one. The annoying one who thought she was too good for you. Come on. How is your girlfriend like an apple?”
“She’s rotten to the core?”
“Hey! I’m not rotten!” Cordy said trying to summon some strength, but Xander could still smell fear on her. “And I am better than you any day, Mr. Undead Guy. So, you know, don’t forget, people will miss me.”
“Oh, I forgot all about the Cordettes.” Xander said taking a knife out of his boot. “I’m real scared of them. Will they give me a ticket for being undead after Labor Day?”
He licked the edge of the knife and grinned at Spike. His mood picked up as soon as he saw that evil twinkle in Spike’s eyes. The one that said, “Less talking, just more killing.”
“You haven’t solved the riddle yet, pet.”
He weighed the knife in his hand and looked at her, “She has the intelligence of one?”
“Nope, wrong again, pet.”
Xander thought as he playfully tossed the knife from hand to hand. He moved closer to his lover and ex-girlfriend and pressed the knife against her cheek.
“Wanna see if I can get her in one strip?”
Cordy screamed as the knife dug into her skin. Xander cut off a piece of her cheek and licked the blood as it streamed down her neck. He shuttered and pulled back.
“What’s she taste like, pet?”
“Filth. She tastes like the dirt under my fingernails.” He inspected Cordy’s perfectly manicured nails. “An eye for an eye, I guess.”
Cordy let out another scream as Xander gripped tighter on her hand. Spike watched as Xander tore her fingernails off. His undead heart soared. Spike knew from that moment on, he and Xander would be together forever.
