Willow studied Buffy’s hand, tracing the lines, referring occasionally to the open book beside them on her friend’s bed in their dorm room.
“This one’s your life line. See that little break there? That’s when the Master killed you and Xander brought you back, but see how long it stretches after that? You’re going to have a long life.”
“Not like other Slayers, huh?”
“Well, you’re not like the Slayers who came before you. You’ve got a whole team backing you up.”
“I have, haven’t I? Go me!”
“You’re teaching the Watchers Council a thing or two.”
“Yep! Slayers are more effective when they don’t work alone and in secret.”
“It’s the truth! Now let me see your love line… Hmmm, you’ll have one, two, three, four, five… Wow! A lot of lovers.”
Buffy smiled wistfully. “I’d settle for just one, some nice, normal, decent guy who’d be mine forever.”
