Movie Endings

"Looks like our work here is done," Agent Mulder said cheerfully as he, Scully, Giles, Buffy, Willow and Xander walked out of the building. "Come on, Scully."

Scully glanced at Giles, then back at Mulder. "I -- "

"I think they need a couple of minutes," Willow stage-whispered to Mulder, standing on her toes to reach the man's ear. Mulder smirked at Scully. Giles glared at Willow, who widened her eyes in a remarkable 'what did I do?' look.

"I'll be at the car," he said, and walked off. Scully and Giles looked expectantly at the teenagers, all three of whom smiled back innocently. The pair moved a few feet off and tried to ignore the trio.

"I don't suppose," Giles said quietly, "that there's any chance of you staying in Sunnydale any longer?"

"I'm afraid not," Scully said solemnly. "Our investigation is finished."

As she and Giles looked away from each other for a few moments, she smiled slightly. "But," she added, and he looked over at her, "I do know that one, the Bureau allotted me three weeks paid leave this year, two, it's early November and I haven't used a day of it, and three, the Bureau has a use-it-or-lose-it policy regarding leave, so I need to take two weeks off by the end of the year."

Giles's face was graced with an awkward smile, which Scully returned, standing on her toes as the two of them moved in. Just as their lips brushed against each others' --

"Scully!" Mulder called from out in the parking lot. "Let's go, G-Woman!"

Scully and Giles both swore quietly. "I should..." Scully said.

"Yes, of course," Giles answered, and watched sadly as she hurried off.

"The G-man and the G-woman," Xander said from behind him, and Willow giggled. "Could it be any more perfect?"

"You got the digits, though, didn't you, Giles?" Buffy asked intently as Scully looked back at him from the parking lot with a smile and a small wave. "Gonna spend the next few weeks rackin' up each others' phone bills with cross-country calls?"

"Excuse me a moment," Giles said as both agents stepped into their car. He raced down the steps and into the parking lot, stopping and rapping on Dana's window just as Agent Mulder was starting the car. The man said something to his partner with a smirk, too low for Giles to hear, and Scully rolled down her window without acknowledging her partner's comment.

"Is something -- "

Giles swallowed his own nerves and, ignoring the cheers and whistles coming from Buffy, Xander and Willow and the amused look on Agent Mulder's face, kissed Dana, who, after a heartbeat, kissed him back.

When he finally pulled away, Dana wore the same awkward smile that he felt sure he did. They gazed at each other for a few seconds before she slowly, reluctantly, rolled up the window and the car pulled out of its space. Giles watched for a few seconds as they drove off, then turned and headed back to the steps, where his Slayer and her friends were waiting. All three of them wore predatory grins.

It was, unsurprisingly, Xander who spoke first. "Go G-Man!" he whooped, pumping a fist in the air above his head.

"Very impressive, Giles," Buffy said approvingly, patting him on the back. "I think Agent Honey was sufficiently moved."

"That was so romantic!" Willow sighed happily. "Like something out of a movie!"

"Xander," Giles said simply, "if you ever call me that again, I'm afraid I shall be forced to kill you."

And then, the three teenagers teasing him every step of the way, they went back inside.
