  • Mood:

Sleep interrupted.

The night had gone exceedingly well, as far as I was concerned. Sure, the vampire slayers still lived, and the plot to kill them had been foiled, but minimal damage had been done, and in an election year and an even bigger year for me, personally, I thought that the way the damage had been managed was perfect.

After Boris, the nasty German vampire that I had hired because of his abilities, had reported to me that the two hitmen and all of the other demons had been taken care of, and that the waves had been minimal, and after Principal Snyder had reported to me that only two students had been killed as a result of this, I was able to go home and sleep with comfort.

Sure, in the morning, I would have to give a press conference about stupid violence, where I would also have to honor the victims and show support for their families, but that was easy, as long as it looked like the town was safe, and that this was just an isolated incident of terrorism.

I had votes to acquire from the parents of this town, and I had never lost an election, so in this year in particular, I needed to limit the waves that were so frequent in this heart, demon-infested town that I had run for one-hundred years. Sure, if I had opposition in the upcoming election, he would either have an unfortunate accident, or it would come out that he was a pedarest or a drug dealer, or something nasty, but I still had to make the appearance of being in charge of the community's safety.

I laughed at that one as I wiped my hands and tossed the remnants of the wet-nap into a trash receptacle near my bed, and lay down to sleep, missing my Edna Mae, like I did virtually every night. Before I could close my eyes, the phone rang and on the other line, was Allen, who was out doing routine surveillance like he so often did, to kiss my ass, and he reported to me, that Spike was back in town, and seemed rather agitated. He had even crashed his car.

I rolled out of bed and told Allen that I would handle this matter. I dressed again, and then phoned Boris. With Spike back in town, chaos would raign supreme and that was something that I could not allow. I had just the right person to handle this Spike matter and I got back into my car and drove to city hall, dialing Boris on his ceel phone to get him back to my office. I was paying him an ungodly fee for his services, so I expected him to put down his meal, drop that neck and get over to the office immediately.

He answered and begrudgingly agreed to, even though he didn't like being called on a whim to do what somebody else wnated him to do. Honestly, I thought, as I pulled up in the middle of the night at City Hall, vampires were entirely too cranky. Boris would like the objective that I next had for him, though, I suspected, and withn fifteen minutes, he came into my office, looking fresh, like it was the middle of the day.

I thought about it and laughed. It was the middle of the day for him, I supposed. He questioned me about my laugh, and I decided to get this night over with quickly.

"It seems that we have another wave that has come to town that you might be familiar with from your time in Europe, Mr. Reminger, and to answer your question, I laughed because I was just thinking how fresh that you look, like it was the middle of the day for you, which of course, I thought and laughed about, it actually is...Breath mint?"

I extended my arms with the jar, and he declined.

"It seems that we have another wave that has come to town that you might be familiar with from your time in Europe, Mr. Reminger, and to answer your question, I laughed because I was just thinking how fresh that you look, like it was the middle of the day for you, which of course, I thought and laughed about, it actually is...Breath mint?"

The implication that I needed a breath mint made me wonder what my benefactor, who would soon be a giant demon, which I planned on being here for, made me think that he believed that I had been feeding and making waves in his town. The issue of this European super vampire hardly caught my attention for the minute. We could address that a little later.

"I haven't fed, Wilkins, if that's what you are wondering. And if I were to feed, it wouldn't be in Sunnydale, and it wouldn't be public, even though I do like, generally, to make spectacles. No sir, I plan to hold off on feeding until I'm eating either of the slayers..."

I smiled, the very thought making me visualize and construct exactly how I thought that the battles would go. I had seen both of them tonight. I liked the brunette. She seemed like a hellraiser. Killing her might require a little of her feeding upon me as well. The blonde was perky, too, but she seemed stuffy and too serious. She would merely here her neck crack before I plunged into her neck.

"Now, who is the uber-European in town that isn't me?"
"I haven't fed, Wilkins, if that's what you are wondering. And if I were to feed, it wouldn't be in Sunnydale, and it wouldn't be public, even though I do like, generally, to make spectacles. No sir, I plan to hold off on feeding until I'm eating either of the slayers..."

"And nobody implied that you had, Boris. Geez, are all Germans so serious?"

I laughed and stood. The very idea of the slayers becoming memories was tantalizing. "I offer everyone breath mints, Mr. Reminger. It's just courtesy, which I realize might not exist in the world in which you hail, and I do appreciate your desire to keep Sunnydale safe. Killing the slayers might let other vampires run free, though, and we couldn't have that."

He seemed disappointed.

"Now, who is the uber-European in town that isn't me?"

"You, can, however, kill one of the slayers, or both, as long as you don't mind keeping this town safe by exterminating others of your kind. Now, getting to this new arrival in town. There are actually, or at least, were two uber-Europeans as you so eloquently referred to them as. One of them is Angelus, but it appears that he has left. Once he lost his soul, he couldn't take being around the slayer, Buffy Summers. I'm sure that he'll return and probably bring back with him the young beauty that he sired and took for the ride with him. As for the vampire here now, I'm sure that you know him. He's British and very vibrant, goes by the name of Spike, or William the Bloody if you prefer."

His face lit up. I didn't envy Spike right now.
"And nobody implied that you had, Boris. Geez, are all Germans so serious?"

"I couldn't give a piss about how most Germans are. I am serious, which makes it easy for me to get things done, Mayor."

"I offer everyone breath mints, Mr. Reminger. It's just courtesy, which I realize might not exist in the world in which you hail, and I do appreciate your desire to keep Sunnydale safe. Killing the slayers might let other vampires run free, though, and we couldn't have that."

If I wanted to kill the slayers, or turn one of the slayers, then nobody was going to stop me, but it left me confounded. Leashes weren't for me. Within reason, I would play ball for this Mayor that was paying me, but only within reason.

"You, can, however, kill one of the slayers, or both, as long as you don't mind keeping this town safe by exterminating others of your kind. Now, getting to this new arrival in town.

He's British and very vibrant, goes by the name of Spike, or William the Bloody if you prefer."

The first part of his statement made me happy. I would keep this town safe until the Mayor's big day, and would kill both of the slayers in the process. As he went on, I felt rage seething. Angelus and Spike. Spike and Angelus. They had spent too much time in their days, with their skinny little trollops, Darla and Drusilla, doing whatever they wanted to, on my turf. I laughed when I had heard that Angel had acquired a soul. Now, it seemed he had lost it again. And Spike, well he was a short, pain in the ass. Killing slayers and Spike and Angelus. Coming here was a brilliant.

"I'll kill both slayers, although I do plan on turning the young brunette and making her my love slave, Mayor, just from one glance. After that, I will become the vampire and demon slayer, if you will, and I'll kill Spike tonight, and Angelus, whenever he returns."
"I couldn't give a piss about how most Germans are. I am serious, which makes it easy for me to get things done, Mayor."

"Splendid, Mr. Reminger. There are few qualities in this world, my mother used to say, more admirable then a good work ethic. I know that my bringing you here was the best decision that I could have made."

"I'll kill both slayers, although I do plan on turning the young brunette and making her my love slave, Mayor, just from one glance. After that, I will become the vampire and demon slayer, if you will, and I'll kill Spike tonight, and Angelus, whenever he returns."

"I know that you are formidable, Boris, and certainly commanding, and you have all of my Faith, pardon the pun, with your plan involving the two slayers, and if I might say, an excellent choice. From my one glance at the little brunette, Faith, she seems like quite the little firecracker and therefore, companion for somebody like yourself, however, do you think it wise to take Spike so lightly? He and his little brunette created quite the trouble here last year, and the slayer, Buffy, was unable to kill him. Do you think it wise to go about this non-chalantly? I wouldn't want to lose your services due to carelessness."

I wouldn't want to lose your services due to carelessness."

I hardly even heard his compliment of me, for he had made the dumbkopf move of questioning whether or not that I could kill little William not thirty seconds later.

"Mayor Wilkins, you've been Mayor of this hellmouth town for a long time, which means that you must have some brains. Observe the facts. I'm six feet, eight inches tall, nearly a foot taller then Spike, which leaves him no chance against me. He may be a warrior. He may have killed slayers in the past and evaded Buffy Summers, but he will not evade me. Secondly, I am a warrior, and believe in war strategy. If I had taken over for Adolf, this country would be speaking German, Mayor. I will not take him lightly when I go in to end his immortality."

If I had taken over for Adolf, this country would be speaking German, Mayor. I will not take him lightly when I go in to end his immortality."

I thought, briefly about arguing his semantics about this country speaking German if he had been in control over the Nazi's. I didn't want to anger this formidable employee of mine, and I didn't wnat to talk about the Nazi's. A chaotic bunch of people who earned no respect and would certainly get none from me, even if Boris respected heir ways and strategy's so long ago, when I kept my eyes closely on things from afar, as Mayor here.

"Once again, I say, splendid. Go forward with your plans for Spike and the two slayers. Again, I need not remind you to exercise caution and to make it discreet. Do your worst, make me proud and once again, you have all of my faith."

He stood and while I wasn't short, he was very imposing. I didn't envy Spike or the slayers, now. There was this isuue of this new vampire in town, who might create trouble for Boris, and I felt the need to bring this up.

"One more thing, Boris, before you go. What are you going to do about this vampire that was aiding the slayers earlier while you executed the executioners in the slayerfest program? He could make life difficult for all of us. What do you make of him as a threat, comparatively to Spike?"
"Once again, I say, splendid. Go forward with your plans for Spike and the two slayers. Again, I need not remind you to exercise caution and to make it discreet. Do your worst, make me proud and once again, you have all of my faith."

I didn't need his blessing, but I appreciated his strategy, like a war would have one, for the big picture. He wanted it quiet, but welcomed the destruction of the precious vampire slayers and seemed to consider Spike a pest, which, let's face it, he was.

I walked to the door after shaking his hand, but stopped as he seemed to have something else bothering him.

"One more thing, Boris, before you go. What are you going to do about this vampire that was aiding the slayers earlier while you executed the executioners in the slayerfest program? He could make life difficult for all of us. What do you make of him as a threat, comparatively to Spike?"

I smiled. "He killed some demons and looked formidable in doing so, but like Spike, he has no chance against me. I had already considered him being a menace to my getting to the two slayers. I doubt that he is as formidable as Spike, Mayor."

I smiled again and opened the door. "Now, I have work to do, Mayor. You sleep well, knowing that I'm on these issues. Aufveidezein."
