01:22 am - Ficlet: Pizza at 2 am, Buffy, Giles, G
Written for agilesreader who wanted Buffy, Giles friendship and "pizza"

When he first moved to this country, there were a number of American foods he couldn’t stand. Greasy, so much grease. Pizza was top on the list.

But now…there’s something about the greasy cheese over thick chewy crust and juicy tomato sauce that seems warm, comforting.

Giles smiles as he orders it, and though it takes almost 45 minutes to come, the timing is perfect. The deliveryman is driving away just as Buffy returns from the hunt.

“Oh wow! That smells delicious!” she exclaims, and her smile lights up the room.

Giles allows her to walk through to the door and answers, “Yes, well, I know the cemeteries have been busy lately, so I thought you might be hungry.”

She blues, remember Faith’s comment which she’ll never share… “You have no idea!”

Giles watches her take a dripping slice and devour it in milliseconds before taking another. He takes one of his own and eats it slowly, waiting for her to slow down, waiting to hear about her day, eager to see if there are any new demons to deal with, smiling at the happy smile on her face that means the hunt has gone well, and so very, very happy to see her here, safe.

Yes, there is something comforting about pizza…and that she has made it back one more night to share it with him.
