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.
