Just arriving.

I swing my leg over the side of my motorcycle, looking at the nicest hotel in Franklin Springs, which isn't really saying much. "What the hell were you thinking Gwen?" I ask myself as I hoist a duffle bag over my shoulder and grab the other suitcase strapped to the back of my bike. I check in and take my bags upstairs, flopping on the bed. I look at my cell phone and wonder if I should dial Angel's number, doubtful that he'd answer anyway. I shrug and dial, rolling my eyes when his voicemail picks up, not bothering to leave a message. I pick up the phone in the room, calling the front desk. "Yes, hello, are there any decent oriental restaurants around here? Excellent, thank you." I hang up and grab my keys, heading out. I jump on my bike and drive to the restaurant, waiting to be seated.

I don't know why I let Willow talk me into going out into this god forsaken town? She said she needed some things, but I had to wonder, how many magick shops will we really find? None the less I left her to wander while I went to get take out, I could atleast take some food home to eat...and Cait should be home soon anyway.

As I walked in the lady at the counter said she already seated me. I was like umm no, I am not even eating here you psycho woman. You know the bible sure isn't helping these people's brains....wait a minute...

I look over and there I sit at a table...well not me, its another me, ok that isn't possible, is it? Not about to confront the other me I take off running not even caring that Willow will be waiting.
Finally found a place that had some herbs, not that they had all of what I needed, but it was something. I can't find Angelina anywhere, wondering if she walked back without me I try the last place in the shopping area that I hadn't looked already and that was the chinese restaurant.

When I walked in I was pleased to find her sitting there eating and drinking some tea...why is she drinking tea? That isn't like her...ok have to get to the bottom of this.

"Angelina?" I say softly as I walk up to her.
I look up from my jasmine tea at the small red head as she stands at my table. I give her a confused look and glance around, trying to decide if she is talking to someone else.

I set the small tea cup down and raise my eyebrows at her. "Can I help you?" I ask as I decide she must be talking to me.
"Angelina this isn't the time for games." I said softly "Did something happen?" I asked curious why she was acting as if she didn't know me.
"I'm sorry, Red, you must have me mistaken for someone else." I look back down at my food and take a bite, chewing and swallowing. I look back up at her. "Are you still here?"
I sit down across from her even more confused then before. "Angelina this isn't funny, stop the act, you know who I am." I said "We have to get back to the house." I added.

I couldn't believe she would do this, she seemed so mature, not the type to try and play games in public, especially with as much as I fear walking out the front door lately.
"Why do you keep calling me that? I've never seen you before, and like I said, you must have me mistaken for someone else. I don't know anyone here, I just got in town today." I shake my head, wondering why I don't tell her to just walk away. But, she's obviously mentally disturbed, so there's no reason to be rude.
"Ok look, I have had enough of your games Angelina. You know how I don't like going out, I knew you didn't want to leave, but we did. I had to get stupid herbs for Giles and Angel and here I am. So stop playing games and lets get back to the house already." Ok so I was being a bit over dramatic, but I was tired of her games.

"So are we going back to the house or am I leaving you here to fend for yourself and explaining to Cait why her sister isn't home?"
I raise both eyebrows at her. "Listen, first, I don't know who you are or who Angelina is. If you are homeless or hungry or something, I'll be glad to buy you a meal. Second, I don't have a sister. Third, who are Giles and Angel?" I obviously recognize Angel's name, but it's not wise to just ask 'so, hey, is the Angel you know a vampire?'.
"Fine you can walk home. I will tell Cait you needed the air." I said getting up. I wasn't playing her games anymore. She knew full well who Angel and Giles were, she knew that this wasn't the time to play games and I sure as hell wasn't going to waste time while she disregarded everything.

"Have a nice meal." I added as I turned to leave.

"You think you scare me?" I asked softly yet evily. "Lets test that theory." Ok Giles would be so pissed at me for this, I should back off and let her go, but I couldn't seem to bring myself to do that, which means I have already gone too far.
"I'm not trying to scare anyone, you crazy bitch. I just wanted some dinner!" I take a step and hit her with both palms on her chest, letting the charge flow through them.
I stand up to the power able to take it all. "You think you can hurt me?" I ask blowing her back into a tree. "Don't mess with me, the last two that tried that are dead and...well they didn't need to be burried when I was done with them." I told her.

"Having said all of that, we can end this civily, tell me who you are, who you work for, or are looking for and I will be on my way."
I flip my head up as I look up at her from my hands and knees on the ground. "You're the psycho bitch that won't tell me who YOU are!" I run, wrapping my arms around her waist and tackling her. I punch her in the face again, shocking her as hard as I can.
I scream out as she tries to electrocute me. "As I recall you were the agressor you freak." I said once more using the one word I shouldn't.

I blast her back again, the only course of action at this point and then freeze her in place only allowing her use of her mouth.

"Now, tell me who you are, who you work for, or are meeting here in this town."
I try to shake loose, growling as I realize I can't move. "Go to hell."
"Been there done that. Why don't you just tell me who the hell you are, and why the hell you are here, and who you are looking for and we can be on our way." I said knowing better than to expect it to work.
I roll my eyes as I can't do anything more emphatic than that. "And I say again, Strawberry, I'm the one who told you who I was and you're the one that's a fucking freak and not only started talking to me and then flip out, you fucking kidnapped me!"
"Why don't I just take you back to my people and let them take care of you. I am sure Angel would love to have fun with the clone of Angelina." I said angrily. She won't tell me anything this is when I start with the semi lame threats.
I laugh bitterly. "And who's this Angel? One of your little pet flying monkeys? I mean, you are the Wicked Witch of the West, aren't you?"
"No, no monkeys, he is a very moody vampire who could eat you for breakfast." Ok not so smart, way to go Willow, could you be more stupid?
I blink. "Did you say vampire?" I try to shake my head and just roll my eyes instead. "Please tell me you don't know him. I can't imagine why he would associate with someone as clearly bent as you."

"The name is Willow, not tree girl, you don't make me want to trust you, so why the hell would I let you go?" I asked though I am not cruel so I loosen up enough for her to breath. "Don't test me, the last man that pissed me off ended up fileted" I said not proudly, just informative.
"And then what? You had him for lunch with an nice Chiante?" I'm getting extremely annoyed, "And just for the record, I'm not in the practice of trusting someone that kidnaps me in the middle of my lunch, so right back atcha Merlin-ette." It's obvious the nicknames are bugging her, so I pull as many out as I can think of.
"look I am the one you should have enough trust in...but you say you know people here, fine, I will see what happens" I said and with a snap we were in the basement of the house. I was probably going to hear it from Giles, and everyone else about the amount of magicks I used...but I would deal with that later.

"We will just have you wait here until someone can tell me who the hell you are."
