An explosion of knocking on the bedroom door startled both
Wes and Alex awake. Bleary eyed and half-conscious Alex
said, "Come in."
"Mornin Pop, Mornin Dad." Wil said with disgusting cheer
for so early in the morning.
"What's got you so happy?" Alexander asked his son.
"I growed some more." Wil said happily.
"You did? How can you tell?" Alexander asked, while trying
to get his eyes to focus.
"My pants are too short and won't close." Wil said happily
as he modeled the obviously too-small item.
"Go put on your sweatpants. We need a minute to wake up.
Okay?" Alex asked quietly.
"Okay, I'll be right back." Wil said with cheer.
"I don't think I was ever that young." Alexander said to
Wesley who was falling asleep again.
"Grmmph." Wesley said into his pillow.
"Good idea." Alexander said and laid back down.
* * * * *
A few hours later Alexander awoke to find Wil asleep
between Wesley and himself. He looked at the sight and
smiled. Alexander began to think of the night before.
Although Wesley hadn't said so, it appeared that he had
never had a lover give him pleasure before. What a tragedy
to be ridiculed for a wonderful gift and to have selfish
lovers who took what they wanted and left him feeling
inadequate. Everything they shared last night was new and
wonderful to Wesley. Alexander had never known such a
treasure. He just hoped he was worthy of the trust that
Wesley had placed in him.
Wesley sensed that Alexander was awake. The things they had
done... Wesley knew the mechanics of what was going to
happen but had no idea of the pleasure that could be
achieved. He felt the slight ache and smiled at the memory
of Alexander tenderly preparing him for penetration. He had
been nervous, but Alexander made sure at every step to
reassure him and to check to see if he was comfortable.
When Alexander had finally entered him, the physical
sensation was equal to the emotional sensation of fullness,
He felt a slight sense of loss. That was what he had been
missing all these years. The possibility of more than one
climax a night just hadn't occurred to him. How had he
managed to find lovers who didn't know what they were
doing? Alex obviously had experience and had shown him so
many things in one night... and promised to show him more.
Regardless where the relationship between them went, there
was definitely no problem with the physical side of
Wil opened his eyes and looked at his Poppa who was awake
and watching him, then he turned and looked at his Daddy
who was awake and staring out into space. "Who's ready for
some breakfast?" Wil asked, causing both men to jump.
"I think I'd like to take my bath first." Alexander said
"Yes, quite." Wesley answered.
"You gonna bathe with us Daddy?" Wil asked excitedly.
Wesley and Alexander shared a look and Alexander finally
said, "Your Daddy is welcomed to join us if he wants, but
if he isn't comfortable, we won't force him."
Wesley thought a moment and said with a tender smile, "I
would be honored to share in a family bath."
Wil ran to the bathroom leaving a trail of clothes along
Alexander and Wesley got up and followed, a little more
When Wesley entered the bathroom and carefully removed his
clothes, Wil saw his ample endowments and his eyes got
large. Alexander noticed, and before Wil could say a word
Alexander squatted down to his level and said softly,
"Wesley has been teased by people and made to feel ashamed.
So please be kind."
Wil looked at the seriousness in his Poppa's eyes then
looked at his Daddy turned away from him. Finally Wil said,
"That was wrong of them."
"Yes it was." Alexander said and gave Wil a big hug.
The water was run and the family got into the tub and
relaxed. Wesley was concerned when Wil went under the water
and didn't come back up for a while, but Alexander
explained that Wil needed to get thoroughly soaked to get
through the day and that was the best way.
* * * * *
Eventually the family got dried and dressed and went down
to have breakfast. Wesley volunteered to cook pancakes for
everyone and Wil even said he would try to eat them without
any blood on them at all.
As the pancakes were cooking, a familiar voice said,
"Dawnie?" Alexander said as he whirled around to see Dawn
and Giles standing in the doorway with Angel behind
Dawn ran across the room and met Alexander as he stood.
"Dawn, what are you doing here? Aren't you supposed to be
"Giles got a call from Wesley. He said that we were needed
here. So here we are... Your eye? What happened to your
eye? I mean, it was gone." Dawn asked from Alexander's
"Long story, I'll tell you later, but first... Dawn, G-man,
this is my son, Wil." Alexander said with pride in his
"My word!" Giles said in shock. Dawn just stared at Wil and
finally said, "He looks like a little Spike."
"M'not little." Wil mumbled.
"Yeah, he does." Alexander said with a smile to Dawn, then
turned to Wil and asked, "Do you remember Dawn and the
"Lil bit! You're growin up real good." Wil said to Dawn as
he ran to give her a hug.
"He talks? And that accent... What is the meaning of this?"
Giles asked with worry.
"He has some of Spike's memories. I'm actually glad,
otherwise I'd have a seven-year old who doesn't know how to
talk or feed himself." Alexander said calmly.
"Xander, no one told me he was... I understood that he was
just born four weeks ago." Giles said mystified.
"Yeah, G-man, he's growing up quick. I didn't think the
Sunnydale crew needed to know about that yet." Alexander
said with a smile.
Giles noticed Wesley standing by the stove, watching the
events quietly. "Wesley, how are you?" Giles asked
"Very well, Mr. Giles. And you?" Wesley responded equally
"I'll be better when we decide what to do about this
doorway that Drucilla told you about. It has me very
concerned." Giles said in watcher mode.
"How so? I mean, I sent you what information I could from
my interview with Drucilla, but I couldn't decipher the
meanings of what she was saying." Wesley said, achieving
his own watcher mode.
"That's quite understandable. I had to consult various
resources, including the watchers journals to determine any
meaning from what she said." Giles said seriously.
"What are you talking about?" Alexander asked.
"Drucilla said some things that concerned Angel, so he
asked me to look into them. They didn't make sense to me,
so I sent my notes to Mr. Giles to see if he could make
sense of it. Apparently he did." Wesley said, a bit
"Your pancakes are burning." Wil said as the adults began
to notice the burning smell.
Wesley quickly dealt with the burnt food and started
another batch, then asked, "Mr. Giles, Miss Summers, would
you like to join us for breakfast?"
"Sure!" Dawn answered while still looking at Wil.
"Yes, thank you Wesley." Giles responded properly.
Everyone took their seats as Wesley prepared pancakes
enough for everyone. Soon he said, "Alexander, the food is
nearly ready, would you like to prepare William's
Giles and Dawn had questioning looks but Alexander didn't
notice. "Angel, I'm heating blood for Wil, would you like a
mug?" Alexander asked as he went to the refrigerator.
Angel nodded and Alexander went to work like the blood
heating professional that he was.
When all the food was placed on the table, Wesley, Angel,
Alexander and Wil began to eat as Dawn and Giles stared at
Wil. Alexander couldn't understand what they were looking
at until he realized that they hadn't seen his demon form
"Isn't he something? Wil, show them your hands." Alexander
said, not wanting Wil to feel freakish under their
Wil promptly showed his webbed fingers and even lifted the
back of his shirt and showed off his dorsal fin.
"Most extraordinary. I had assumed that he was progeny of
Spike... But how?" Giles asked in shock.
"Remember the swimteam thing? It changed me a little more
than we knew. I passed it on to Wil. And that's how I grew
my eye back too, I think." Alexander said before taking
another large bite of pancakes. "Great pancakes Wesley." He
mumbled through his mouthful.
"Yes, very good." Giles said absently before taking his
second bite. "Why is he so..."
"...big." Dawn finished.
"We think its because of the steam too, it doesn't really
matter. It's the way he is and I wouldn't want him to be
any other way." Alexander said with certainty.
Sensing Alexander was about to become offended on his son's
behalf, Wesley jumped in and asked, "So what are you and
Miss Summers doing here?"
"If I understood what you sent me, there is an opened
doorway that is ready to flood the earth with demons from
another realm if we don't close it. Dawn is a dimensional
key. If I understand the process correctly, she should be
instrumental in closing the door." Giles said
"Any idea where the open doorway is?" Alexander asked while
scraping the last of his pancake into a final bite.
"I believe it would have opened in Sunnydale, as it was the
greatest dimensional vortex in the area. However, since it
has been neutralized, the next closest dimensional
instability is the most likely to be opened." Giles said
"So we're all heading to Cleveland?" Alexander asked with
worry in his voice.
"No, a hellmouth isn't required for this type of
dimensional crossing, just instability enough to allow
emergence into our reality. The nearest instability is
outside Santa Fe, New Mexico. If that one wasn't unstable
enough to open, the next instability is in Marfa, Texas."
Giles said carefully.
"Oh, so we're just going to fly on over there and look
around for a door?" Alexander asked, knowing it was never
"I was thinking of driving. Either Dawn or your son will
feel the dimensional forces building gradually and guide us
where we need to go. If we were to fly into the area, the
sudden concentration of the forces would blind them to the
proper direction for hours, possibly days before they
became accustomed enough to sense directionality." Giles
said in full-on watcher mode.
"Why would Wil be able to feel anything to do with the
portal, don't tell me he's a key like Dawn." Alexander
"No, no. It is possible that your son's birth is somehow
connected to the dimensional opening. I'm going on what
Drucilla said, so I can't be entirely sure about that
point. Dawn and I will bring him along with us to give us
the best chance of closing the door." Giles said with
"It won't hurt him, will it?" Alexander asked with
"No, he should feel drawn to it, that's all." Giles said
"When do we go?" Wesley asked calmly.
"Only the three of us are needed to take care of this."
Giles said, making it clear that Wesley wasn't invited.
"Alexander and I will be coming along to protect the best
interests of William." Wesley said with finality.
Giles looked at Alexander to back him up and was surprised
when Alexander said, "We trust you G-man, but there is
nothing on this earth that will take Wil away from me. If
we have to take two cars, then we will."
"Actually, two cars is a good idea. There is always a
chance of mechanical difficulties on a trip such as this.
That along with the supplies we will no doubt need to carry
would make two cars a necessity." Wesley rambled.
Alexander just nodded.
"So when do we leave?" Alexander asked.
"Do you have any plans right now?" Giles asked flatly.
"I had planned to buy a few things today..." Alexander said
looking at Wesley, then continued, "But I suppose it can
wait, what with the fate of the world hanging in the
"Alexander, if you'll clear up the kitchen, I'll attend to
packing our things for the trip." Wesley said properly.
Giles caught what Wesley had said about 'our things' and
decided that it was none of his business.
Dawn and Giles followed Wesley out of the kitchen and
waited in the lobby for them to be ready to leave.
* * * * *
"Xander, I think you should take Wil up to say goodbye to
his grandma Dru, she won't be here when he gets back."
Angel said quietly.
"Oh, yeah, we did say that she would be leaving when she
got better." Alexander said sadly.
"She can't live with us, she needs to be free. I've seen
how she becomes when she's been kept somewhere too long. It
has to be this way." Angel said with certainty.
"We'll go up as soon as the dishes are done. Would you mind
staying with Giles and Dawn?" Alexander asked.
"No, I don't mind." Angel said and walked into the lobby
where Giles and Dawn were standing.
"Grandma Dru is gonna leave?" Wil asked sadly.
"Yes, she has to. Angel is right, she can't be happy in a
place like this. She needs to be free to hunt and dance and
listen to the stars sing. There are too many people here
that might hurt her if she stayed." Alexander said as sadly
"You don't want her to go either?"
"I guess I don't, she's our family, she should be with us,
but we want what's best for her, right?" Alexander said to
Wil nodded bravely.
"We're done here, let's go talk to your Grandma Dru."
Alexander said with false enthusiasm.
