Xander snuck carefully out of the library, it was just not safe anymore there. His enemies were sure to search that place first. As he walked across the corridor he cursed Giles and Angel again. If that Watcher just had kept his mouth shut about the Zombie incident and that he was the one that forced Angel to help him save Buffy. If only they had kept quiet, then his enemies wouldn't know about it and then he would not be in this terrible situation.
The movement of a shadow saved him and quickly, before the guard had time to turn around, Xander dove inside a restroom. Luckily no one was inside. He was especially lucky, considering it was the girl's restroom.
"Cool," Xander said, watching the large mirror and clean floor of the toilet."They must actually clean the girl’s restroom."
A pair of feet suddenly stopped outside the toilet. Xander could hear his enemies talking outside.
"He is not in the men's room and eww it was totally unclean," one of them said. "Shall we check the girl’s room?" the other one said and the last of them said, "No, the wrong individual may find us. It is best if we continue tomorrow we will get him. Let's go home."
Xander breathed out a sigh of relief. Finally he was safe and could leave the school and go home. As he walked out a pair of strong arms suddenly grabbed him and locked him into a hold.
"Hi Xander, you didn't really think you could escape, did you?" Buffy asked.
Willow nodded, "You can't get away."
Cordy added "Yea you're a hero, time to face the consequences of you actions."
Buffy spoke, "We will give you a wardrobe make over. Time to lose those Hawaiian t-shirts and Angel even agreed on paying for your new shirts and pants."
Cordy added, "I think a leather jacket will look good on you hero boy!"
Willow agreed, "That's right Xander you are a hero. Time you look like one, time to go and shop till we drop."
Faith nodded, "Yup boytoy, I bet you look good in leather and I know exactly where we will get some."
Xander's screams of fear and calls for help went unheard by the grateful females.
Angel looked over at the librarian, "That really felt good to do."
Giles without looking up, said, "Better him then us."
Angel agreed, "To true."
