Title: Sandalwood
Word Count: 100
Notes: Post-Chosen. This was a direct result of a silly conversation Otter and I had.

Giles smelled like sandalwood again.

For as long as she knew him, Giles always smelled faintly of sandalwood. Except last year when he was on the run and sharing a bathroom with more than a dozen girls. Then he just smelled like soap. First, the cheap stuff she would buy on sale and then hotel soap after Sunnydale fell.

But now they were back in London, reforming the Council, and things were finally looking up. And Giles smelled like sandalwood again.
“Buffy, are you alright?”

“Yeah, Giles. Why do you ask?”

“Well… You’re crying.”

“Am I? Just happy, I guess.”

Title: The Best Laid Plans
Word Count: 100
Notes: Again, post-Chosen. I suppose you can fill in whoever you like as the girl in question. But Otter and I both know who she is!

He was never good at this part. The asking. Even when he was confident he was going to get a positive response. And he wasn’t all certain that he would in this case. He usually found it much easier to skip straight to the tumble into bed. He was good at seduction. But not with her. An evening chat was too familiar a setting for her to pick up any romantic overtones, even if he substituted a bottle of wine for the pot of tea.

Finally, he just gave up his plans and kissed her instead. At least, it worked.
