Fiction, early draft

Yeah, okay, this sort of happened. What the hell. It needs another draft at least, but I am feeling impatient. Either it gets another draft or I abandon it entirely because I'm not sure I can make the transitional moment work.

Pairing: Giles/Buffy, mention of G/E
Rating: FRAO
Spoilers: Set between seasons 3 & 4.
