Rupert's Secret Revealed

The door to The Magic Box opened and the customary little bell above it rang to let Anya know a potential customer had arrived.  However, Anya could tell right away this was no ordinary customer.  She radiated power and energy like she hadn’t seen in a long time.  The woman was tall, dusky and incredibly gorgeous and Anya couldn’t stop staring.

  “Good afternoon, I was wondering if Rupert Giles was here?” The woman said in a clipped, very proper British accent.

  “Um, I ah, ah…..” Anya stammered. She was mesmerized by the beautiful woman standing before her.  Just then, Giles, as everyone called him, walked up from the storeroom and stopped dead in his tracks.

  “Anais, what, what are you doing here?” Giles asked as he ripped off his glasses stunned to see the woman standing before him. 

  “Rupert,” She said softly as she walked up to him and laid a hand on his cheek, “The covenant is broken and we are no longer bound by it.”  By this time Willow Rosenberg and Buffy Summers had arrived at the shop and were wondering what was going on.

  “But, that means…….”

  “Yes, that does mean.”  The other occupants of The Magic Box were near bursting with questions when all of a sudden Giles roughly took the mysterious woman by the shoulders and kissed her very passionately.  The onlookers’ mouths all dropped open and even more questions flew through their minds.  It was at this moment that Xander Harris walked in carrying a set of color swatches….

“Anya, what color were the tablecloths you wanted?” He looked up and at the two people kissing “Oh, okay, I seem to have walked in on something? Maybe?” he looked to Buffy, “Help?” 

  Buffy whispered, “I have no idea what is going on.  She just walked into the shop asked for Giles and then this happened.”

  “Ahem, so, if we are done with the kissy face Giles, can you please tell us what’s going on? Please?”  Buffy asked.

  Giles and the mysterious woman broke apart, and while he was still looking at her said “Everyone, this is Anais Hennessey, my” here Giles paused, took a deep breath and said “wife”.

  The shock left everyone, even Buffy completely speechless.

  “Um, you’re what now???” Buffy asked after what seemed like forever.

  “My Wife, Anais, meet everyone”. Here he looked at the young people he had come to know and love, with the understanding that they were bursting with a million questions said “I know, I have a lot of explaining to do and it’s a long story.  I’d rather not discuss it here at the store.  I am going to take Anais to my place and why don’t you all meet me there in about 2 hours.”

  Of course their curiosity got the better of them and they agreed to meet Giles and this Anais woman later. What they didn’t realize was this was going to change all of them, forever.

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging.

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Liz Aguilar, author of To Have And to Hold a fast-paced, gripping, adrenaline rush from start to finish, one of perhaps the finest pieces of writing I've ever read, in particular because of its' telenovela-like feel, May she continually find success as an author. Bravo my dear, bravo!

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

DarkSide Consulting: This was the first book I have read on the Inkitt app so far. It had me hooked from the start. I loved the first person dialogs and how the Creepypasta Characters fit perfectly in their scenes and how they acted and reacted. Don't worry about the grammar in a story like this because I wouldn't...
