A/N: Double drabble.
Spike’s heard rumours about this Slayer, although he doesn’t believe everything he hears. Vampires and demons like to talk big, so when they come off worst in a scuffle they always make their opponent out to be bigger, stronger, smarter than is actually the case, just to save face.
Then again, this one is reputed to have finished off the Master; that’s a rare trick and no mistake.
If it’s true.
Could be she just got lucky; it’s been known to happen. The older a vamp gets, the more powerful they become, but some get too sure of themselves; they grow careless and then all that’s left is a little pile of dust.
Slayers; Spike makes mincemeat out of them. He’s done two already, so why not go for the hat trick? That would secure him a high level position in the vamp hierarchy here in Sunnydale. The trick is not to go rushing straight in; taking out a Slayer requires careful planning, and the first step is to test her mettle, see what he’s up against. If a few other vamps get dusted in the process, so what? It thins out the competition.
This is going to be fun!
