It’s not the first time Xander’s had this nightmare, probably most people have had it at one time or another, but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. On the plus side he’s not completely naked, he still has his shorts on and they’re not even an embarrassing pair, pretty tame by the standards of his underwear drawer. If it had been the Superman ones, that would’ve been worse, but…

He’s in Hell.

The whole class is laughing at him, standing there in a state of undress that he has no desire to be seen in, or NOT in, as the case may be. It’s beyond embarrassing, it’s humiliating, and so much worse than he’s ever experienced because always before he’s been able to wake up and know he was only dreaming. This time he’s not waking up, no matter how many times he pinches himself, and anyway he has a horrible feeling it’s not a dream. It feels too real.

But if that’s the case, why is it happening and where are his clothes? Because he was fully dressed right before he stepped through the door. Those are questions for later though.

Time to make himself scarce!

The End


Xander had a habit of that.
He had a good sense of self-preservation.

Thank you!

For the most part, yes. I think the rest was due to plot points.

No problem.
