A/N: Double drabble.
Everyone loved Ted’s stupid mini pizzas. Everyone loved TED! Her mom just kept gushing about her new boyfriend, how great he was, how clever, how kind and thoughtful, like he’d hung the moon or something. Even Willow and Xander, the two people Buffy had always believed would be on her side no matter what, had been drawn to the dark side with pizzas and cookies. Apparently the price of loyalty was food.
After her talk with Angel, Buffy almost wished she could like Ted, if only because he made her mom happy, but she couldn’t; there was something not right about him, something that set every one of her Slayer instincts on edge. Mini golf proved it.
Okay, so she cheated, just a bit, but that didn’t give Ted the right to threaten her with physical harm, and the way he switched in the blink of an eye from evil incarnate to all sweetness and light when the others appeared… That was NOT normal behaviour, unless you happened to be a psychotic control freak. He had to be some kind of demon; that was the only explanation that made any kind of sense.
What was she gonna tell her mom?
