Double Edged Sword

Xander practically bounced into the training room and Giles allowed himself a small smirk at his energy.

“You may not be so happy when we’re done,” he said wryly.

“Bring it on,” Xander replied with a grin and headed to the practise swords that hung on the wall. Giles coughed.

“Not those,” he said quietly. Giles picked up a wooden case and presented it to Xander.

Inside was a rapier, with an elaborate, gilt guard. Xander gasped and reverently picked it up.

“For me?” he said. Giles nodded.

“It once belonged to a Spanish friend of mine. It’s yours now.”

*-*

A/N2: Yes, the Spaniard in question was Inigo Montoya. I was feeling silly ;-)

"My name is Xander Harris, you killed my Mentor, prepare to die!" Xander cried out.

Giles sighed in the background. "I'm not dead yet and don't plan to be for a while!"

:D Love the drabble!

Now I'm imagining Inigo, Fezzik, Westley and Buttercup as Immortals. Or at least Westley and Buttercup. Would they be as wonderful as Robert & Gina de Valicourt?

I suspect that they would, and would probably argue just as much, possibly more!
