Here me go again, eh, eh!
Before starting the umpteenth new FF, I just wanted to assure you I’m going to complete all the others I’m working on, too, don’t worry! ;)
By the way, this is the longest one I’ve ever written… ok, let’s start:


Author: Lu
Pairings: Spike/Buffy (Obvious!), and..

Disclaimer: I know, I know, they’re not mine ( sigh) Joss owns everything and everyone. Plus, thank you to the writer of ‘ School Hard’, and a big part of Season 2, too ( and also a bit of Season 1 and other stuff, too).. Anyway, let me give you an advice, before you begin reading... forget Joss’ Season 2!

Thanks to: my wonderful beta Maribel, as always!

Setting: This is an AU fic. In this story Angel didn’t arrive to Sunnydale on the beginning and he had never watched over Buffy at L.A., so he doesn’t know her; and although Buffy is the Slayer, in certain aspects she is more like the cheering and a little bit flighty girl she was before becoming the Chosen One.

Summary: Watching ‘School Hard’ for the umpteenth time, I wondered ‘What if things went * a little bit * differently?’
And title says everything.
Yeah, I know, lots of people have already wrote about it, but believe me, this one is kinda different... so if I were you I’d give it a chance! ;)
Of course, there’s a lot of drama, angst, tragedy… who am I kidding?? If you need a good laugh, this story may be the answer to your prayers! ;-)

Chapter 1: Looking for you (I)

Spike mowed down the Welcome to Sunnydale sign with his car as he entered the city limits on his way to what would become his new abode.

Once he got there, he made sure that all the other vampires understood whom they were dealing with and that they’d better not interfere while he tried to earn the Anointed One’s trust, or the Annoying One, as Spike mockingly called him behind his back.

After settling Drusilla on what would be their room, Spike had shot off on a reconnaissance with just one goal, to find the Slayer.
After all, he had hereby sworn to his beloved Princess that he would kill the Slayer for her and then they would dance over her grave.

But it wasn’t his style to rush into anything; it was always better to know his enemy and her weaknesses before facing her.
The other vampires on the lair had informed him about the places that the young people preferred to attend.

Since there weren’t that many in Sunnydale, it wouldn’t take him long to find her. Not that he knew how she looked like, because he had preferred not to know anything about her appearance. He wanted to find out who she was on his own.

With the absolute certainty that she was there, he had decided to go to the coolest pub in that town, the Bronze.
Although that pub was crowded, his supernatural sense had made him fix his icy stare on a table where two girls, a redhead and a blonde, were chatting.

Oddly, he had chosen to concentrate just on the blonde.
There was something different about her, something exciting and maybe a bit dangerous.
He couldn’t be wrong; she must be the Slayer.
But to be sure, he still had something to do.

In the meantime, the two girls were talking animatedly.
“Look, Will, the most popular crowd from Sunnydale High is here tonight, the football captain, the basket and water polo captains, and they are all at Cordelia Chase and Harmony Kendall’s feet, the school queens, grrrr!” Buffy snapped.

“Yeah, but not only them, Xander is there also... he claims he does it just to annoy Cordelia. But he spends much more time with a girl that he supposedly hates... than with me. After all, I’m just his best friend…I’ll never be anything more to him,” Willow sighed upset.

“You know what? Xander doesn’t deserve you! And I shouldn’t waste my time thinking about those big idiots! Ok, they are popular, but they are so shallow... I want a guy that’s different...”
“Such as?” Willow asked.

“I don’t know. Maybe one that’s a little bit older than me, a guy with a temper that can challenge mine... a handsome man with dark appeal, maybe surrounded by mystery... a guy that could take my breath away at first sight...” Buffy sighed. “But you know what, Will? Those kind of things just happen in the movies...” she added upset, as Willow seemed more and more distracted, looking somewhere else.

“Buffy, it seems that your desire has materialized, and he’s been staring at you for a while...”

Willow hadn’t finished saying that when Buffy had already turned to look around, fixing her gaze on the blue eyes of a mysterious and fascinating stranger, but only for a second before turning back to her friend.

“Oh, Will, he’s gorgeous... and he’s staring at me!” she exulted in a whisper, very pleased by that fact.

“Well, if you are so lucky, why don’t you buy a ticket and win the lottery?” the redhead commented, maybe a little bit envious due to the fact that the blond guy’s attention was only for her friend.

“Believe me, if I have a chance with that guy... I’ve already won the lottery!” the other girl smiled, getting up and dragging her friend to the dance floor.
