A couple of days ago Andrew and Bethany were doing some research on a vamp who calls himself Fangdan. Not a big fan of the name, but whatever. I didn't pay attention long enough to get the scoop. I was too busy arguing with Buffy about leaving me here, while she goes to Los Angeles to save the world. I wanted to be apart of the action. I've been training more, and I felt like I was up to it. Buffy didn't agree, so she left me here with Andrew, Bethany and Amanda. Andrew was ok. We had our little fun moments. He just gets a little overprotective and thinks he can tell me what to do. Then, when I yell at him, he apologizes. He's weird like that.
We both left the house in a hurry. Andrew tried to get a hold of Amanda, but we realized she left her cell phone here. She went out to party. I guess she didn't want to be bothered. As a slayer, that was irresponsible on her part. Boy, will she feel bad if something bad happens to Bethany. They are supposed to go out in teams when going after a big bad. Bethany figured she could handle it herself. Which brings me to the present. Me and Andrew, in a car, trying to find Fangdan's place.
I argued with Andrew most of the time in the car. He was talking to me like a child and I hate when people do that! After I let him have it, he pulled back. If I would have known better I think he was flirting with me, too. Yikes.
"No, you are certainly not in fourth grade anymore, and don't look like you are."
If that didn't tell me he was flirting, I don't know what to think. I looked over at him with a little smirk on my face. It was a nice compliment, I guess. Why not enjoy it. Besides, it was easier to get what I want. He even told me I could drive back to the house when we found Bethany. My job is done.
Andrew pulled over five minutes later. We were at Thames. "Let me guess...we have to look for the tunnel?" He nodded. "Great. I don't think we have any flashlights." Andrew pulled two out of his man bag. I rolled my eyes. "Aren't you so prepared?" He smiled and got of the car. I followed behind him. We eventually came to the tunnel entrance. I gulped hard. I grabbed the flashlight out of Andrew's hand. "Let's just get this over with."
The tunnel was wet and disgusting. I tried not to flash the light on the walls. There was no way I wanted to see what else was in here with us. You know like roaches, rats, those sort of disgusting things. I kept my eyes forward, along with my light. There was a light up ahead. "That must be where this tunnel ends." I started to run. Big mistake, since I managed to trip over a rock and got myself all wet and dirty. I slammed my hand on the ground, making a bigger splash. "Dammit!" I screamed. Andrew held his hand out. "I'm fine." I stood up and tried to wipe myself off. There was no use. These clothes would be coming off as soon as we get home.
We climbed up the exit and on to the grand field. "Oh my god." I looked up at the house, then I turned and saw the view. I must admit, the view of London was beautiful. Why couldn't we find a place with a view like this? Damn vampires and their spectacular views. It's not like they can enjoy it during the day. What a waste. "This place is beautiful and huge. Bethany can't be in there. Can she?" I looked at Andrew. "She knew exactly where to go. This is not good." I looked back toward Fangdan's lair. My heart began to beat faster and faster.
"How are we supposed to get in there undetected, genius? If he detected Bethany, she's probably being held captive by him. Then he'll capture us and no one will save us." I stopped and slumped over a bit. I had to get a grip on myself. Fangdan was just another vampire. I can handle this. "Let's go."
