Part Two

An argument was the first thing Xander heard when he woke; he wondered when he had lost consciousness. Buffy’s voice was loud and angry and Dawn could be heard trying to calm her down.

“What do you mean nothing is wrong with him?” Buffy demanded to know, “Look at him! Does he look like a person that is healthy?”

“No, he doesn’t, but we can not find anything that is causing it,” The doctor spoke. Xander realised it was the same doctor that had looked after Joyce. “And before you say it is a stroke again, I am telling you that is not the case.”

Xander could picture Buffy placing her hands on her hips, “You have to do something. Have your diagnostics team look at him.”

“We do not have the resources for that. I’m sorry but I have to release him, we can’t be wasting a bed for someone that might need it.”

“You’re kicking him out,” Dawn’s voice rose, ignoring the fact that just a moment ago she was trying to stop Buffy was doing something she would regret.

“There is nothing we can do. Try taking him to Los Angeles, they have a diagnostics team. I’m sorry I can’t help.” With that the doctor left the room.

Xander decided it was time to try and tell them it was mystical. He had ignored this too long and it might be too late. Concentrating he was able to smack his hand against the railing of the bed. The girls were instantly by his side, “P-pen.”

“You need to rest Xander,” Buffy said softly tears filling her eyes.

“Pen,” he spoke again his voice cracking.

Dawn pulled out a pen and an old receipt from the Espresso Pump. It took far too long for Xander to simply write, ‘Mystical’ and ‘Willow’.

“Willow did this too you?” Buffy asked trying to make sense to you. “She’s in England though and she would never hurt you! The only time she hurt anyone was after Tara died.” A weak nod came from Xander, “Oh god. Why didn’t you tell us?” Shaking her head, “That’s not important right now.” She turned her attention to Dawn, “I need you to phone Giles tell him what’s going on and that we need help A.S.A.P!”

Dawn gave a final squeeze to Xander’s hand before leaving the room to make the call. Her hands were shaking; she couldn’t lose Xander she had lost too much already.

“I swear Xan; we are going to find a way to fix this.” Buffy promised.

“I… know,” Xander answered; Buffy had yet to let him down.

Just letting you know that I am really into this fic. Honestly, I always
wondered why Joss didn't write in some consequences to Xander getting hit
with that much dark magic.

You have developed that thought into a gripping story. I am eager to see
where you go with it.

*btw and completely ot; Dr. Horrible from the short with Harris and Filion?
where do I get the songs from it?*

Thank you so much! I always wondered the same thing, that was some major mojo he got hit with there should have been something even if it was a scar or somethin.

I hope you continue enjoying the story =)

I honestly have no idea where you can get the songs. it seems impossible to download. I found the songs on youtube and have been watching them none stop for the last week lol

Wow! Great chapter! I'm thinking about the fact Xander didn't ask for help ealier. Why not? Arrgh, very exciting. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you. I should warn you this is an older story I just recently got beta'd so I'm not too sure how well it is lol.

I like the story so far. I always used to wonder the same thing...why did Xander never suffer or show any effects from all that magic Willow zapped him with? Shouldn't there have been *some* effect?

Anyway, good job so far. :)

BTW..you can download the Dr. Horrible songs on itunes. I think they're all .99 each.

I would have loved if there had been some effects not that i wanted Xander to be sick but so there was more based around him. He deserved more credit and such in season 7

Thank you so much i hope you continue to enjoy =)

Cool thank you =D
