BtVS - BuffyWillowXander
Voices startled her out of her sulk. Perplexed at the ongoing conversation, Claudia glanced around the bookshelf to the study area below her...

"...one lousy sucker," the dark-haired guy finished. "I had it, but nooo. You had to steal it."

The girls exchanged looks, obviously smothering laughter. "Uh... sorry?" the blonde said.

"You never let me win," he grumbled - and that set the girls off.

Great. Role-playing losers. Claudia had real problems: her parents were splitting up, her boyfriend had vanished, her grades were slipping; all she'd wanted was some silence in the deserted library. Couldn't these guys understand priorities?

Hee. If she only knew. (i'm not completely sure why she'd think role playing though?)

Wordcount totally stole the middle scene. lol. That's why the conversation starts with '...'.

I always wondered if anyone else ever overheard a conversation at the library... figured something like this was prompt to happen.

It was a nice read, kudos to you! :)

Everybody is in denial. That's the only way to explain how nobody ever said anything and yet Buffy got the Protector award at graduation. ;)

Heh. As much as the library was the Scoobies' inner sanctuary, it still was a public place and it was rather big. You did often wonder how they knew they were alone so they could talk freely.

Very nice!

I figure they used the well-known truth that the library is the LAST place any student wants to find themselves in. :)

For the majority, I would agree. My crowd hung out in our library before school, during break, and after lunch.Guess there weren't that many groups that wanted private time of their own without the noise of the rest of the student body crowding in the hallways. To each their own. ;)
