Spike's talked to Andrew loads of times, but he can't remember ever thinking about talking to Andrew before. But tonight he's clocked seven actual minutes trying to find a better opening line than "we have to talk," and still come up with bugger all. He's brought a bottle of Scotch, as much for himself as to get the boy talking -- a few days ago he'd have said the only trouble was to make him stop.

At least Andrew should be alone, if he hasn't imported company from Milliways. Spike knows Jonathan is out on a mission because he made it up himself.

He knocks.

Yeah.

*There's a touch of a wince in his voice there, a note of chagrin.*

This is the first time anything like that's happened. I didn't know it was even possible.

*Andrew nods.* Me and Jonathan keeping a secret, I think he pretty much expects that by now. Like you said, he puts up with it. Probably because he still doesn't take us too seriously.

*A very small wry smile accompanies that last.*

You getting in on it, that changes things.

*There's a long pause.*

This is another one of those conversations I can never tell anybody we had, isn't it.

stilljustandrew: (serious 1)
From: [personal profile] stilljustandrew
That's not really an or.

*No trace of smile left in Andrew's face.*

Whatever's happening has to be stopped. Whether or not we tell Angel. It's not just here, and it wasn't just River. People at Milliways are getting thrown into other people's worlds -- and not always where other people can find them and get them home that quickly.

At least one guy's still missing.

stilljustandrew: (contemplative)
From: [personal profile] stilljustandrew
No, I get that.

*And he does. It's a fair condition to make. This has become a situation where what you don't know can kill you deader than a -- well, in Angel's case, deader than you already are.*

I want to run it by Jonathan first, in case he thinks of anything we haven't, but ... maybe it's time this comes out in the open.

*Beat.*

One thing.

I've seen Angel at Milliways. Long while ago, but it was him.

Except it wasn't our him.

stilljustandrew: (yeah um about that...)
From: [personal profile] stilljustandrew
Pretty sure he was, yeah.

I mean, I've never met him without the soul, but um ... the difference would be pretty obvious, wouldn't it?

Date: 2007-09-25 04:28 am (UTC)
stilljustandrew: (hmmm)
From: [personal profile] stilljustandrew
Yeah. And he hasn't, not in ... more than a year, I'm pretty sure. But I figured you should know.

So in the meantime, I'm thinking let's see what we can find out about this world-shuffling thing going on. And give me a chance to talk it over with Jonathan. And then ... I guess then we'll have a conference, or something.

Sound good?
