"Yep." The other Cordelia yawned impateintly. "Now, I'm taking over." She grinned evily and advanced towards the original Cordelia. Cordy ran out of the way, dodging to one side. She tried to run past, but was grabbed by her hair. She then felt herself getting smaller, and then she flew into her compact, and then was looking out a small hole at herself. Her counterpart grinned, and so did Cordelia. She was now the reflection. The Cordelia on the other side smiled, and closed the compact. She then turned and exited the room.
Willow walked through the halls, grinning at the boys who whistled in her direction. One of the football playing boys was watching her, and Willow shook it a little more to keep his attention, licking her lips. The football player stared at her, swooning. Willow laughed wickedly. She then ran into Oz. He smiled at her. He then looked down at her new revealing clothes. "Uh....hi Willow. What's up with the new look?"
"Well, Oz, I'm just trying to attract some boys with the guts to....well, put out." Willow said. Oz's jaw dropped in disbelief. Willow waltzed past him. "Bye,Oz." She said. Oz watched her walk down the hall, waving to several boys who stared at her.
Cordelia walked into the library, and saw Buffy and Xander sitting alone at a table. Buffy was laughing. Xander must be on. Cordelia opened her compact, and spoke to her reflection. "I'm going to do what you never had the guts to do. He walked all over you, and now it's time for us to get revenge." She closed the compact, after making her reflection smile and nod. Cordelia walked over, and put both hands on the table, leaning over Xander. "Hi,Xander." She said.
"Uh, hi Cordy." Xander said nervously.
"I just wanted to say that I missed you." She said, running her hand through his hair, running a finger down his cheek seductively.
"I...I missed you... Cordelia." He said, trying hard to form his words. Cordelia pulled him gently to his feet, and moved in to kiss him. Then she kneed him in the crotch and smacked him. She walked away, laughing
"That wasn't Will" Oz said, sitting on a table, Buffy, Giles, and Xander all sitting around him.
"Yeah, I think I got a look at her new wardrobe." Xander commented.
"Our little Willow has grown up." He paused, looking around. "This is really bad." he added.
"And then there was Cordelia." Buffy commented. "She came in, hit on Xander and then..well..."
"She kneed me in the nuts." Xander admitted "I'm still afraid I can't have kids. is there a spell to reverse that type of thing, Giles?" Giles flushed at the subject, and then hastily changed the subject.
"Wh-what was Cordelia doing before she...well..." He asked.
"She came in, looked at her compact, and then walked over." Xander replied "And she beat me up."
"In her-her compact." Giles repeated.
"Yeah." Xander nodded. Giles looked down, deep in thought.
"You have a theory?" Buffy asked.
"Of course he does." Xander said "It's some mirror demon,right?" Giles just looked at the floor.
"I have a theory, but I need time to ponder it." Giles said "Excuse me." he walked into the back
Angel walked slowly into the bronze, unsure of what he would say to Buffy if he happened to run into her. He walked through the crowd of dancing teens and found his way uncounciously to the usual spot. There sat Buffy, Oz and Xander. He walked over. "Hi." He said, half smiling "Where's Willow?"
"Over there." Xander said, pointing. Angel looked over to the bar, and saw her sitting alone with a trip of boys, flirting heavily.
"She and Cordy have been acting strange." Buffy said.
"What's wrong with Cordy?" he asked. Buffy pointed over to another section of the Bronze where Cordelia stood alone, dressed for battle. She wore a skin tight green tank top, army pants, and combat boots. Her hair was tied up in a bun, and she looked around menicingly. "That is rather strange." he said.
"Giles has a theory." Xander said, "But he needs time to figure it out."
"I'm going to the little girls room." Buffy announced getting up.
"Can I come?" Xander asked. She glared at him.
"Hey, it was worth a shot."
Buffy finished going to the bathroom and walked out. As she was leaving, she noticed the mirror shimmer like water. She paused, waiting for it to happen again. It did. She stepped closer to the mirror, looking into it. Her reflection reached forward and grabbed a hold of her shirt. Buffy fought back, putting her hands against the counter to brace herself. But more hands reached out, grabbing her. Her left shoulder went into the mirror, and Buffy still fought. More hands reached around her and grabbed her face. She was pulled through after a few more minutes of struggling.
Angel watched Buffy walk out of the bathroom and immedietly noticed the change. Buffy walked out and instantly cringed when someone came up to her. He watched as she slid her way across the back wall of the bronze, trying to get out of the place, fear lighting up her eyes. She walked over towards Cordelia and stood, but Cordelia looked at her angrily and she walked away, cowering. "What's wrong with Buff...."
Xander began. "Great, her too."
"Okay," Angel said, "I'm going to see Giles. You two get Willow, Cordelia and Buffy and get over there."
"Brilliant plan, deadboy." Xander said. "How do you suggest we do that?" Angel walked away. Now was not the time to fight with Xander. Not with Buffy at stake now. Oz put an arm around Xander.
"Let's get this over with. You get Buffy, I'll get Willow. We'll worry about Cordy after." Xander nodded, and the pair took off.
Xander walked up to the new Buffy and she cringed from him in fear. "Hi, Buffy." he said, waving.
"Hi." She squeaked out "Please, don't hurt me. I'll move. I didn't mean to be in your spot..."
"Stop" Xander said "i just wanted to know if you wanted to go hang out."
"I dunno." Buffy said nervously "What if you hurt me or something..."
"Buffy," Xander said "The last thing I would ever do is hurt you. If I hurt you, you'd be upset, and when you're upset, I'm upset." he said, smiling.
"Really?" She asked "You care?"
"Of course." He said "So will you come?"
"No." Buffy said, cringing again.
"Buffy, go get in the car." Xander said, annoyed.
"Okay." She whimpered.
Oz walked up to where Willow stood with three guys, her hand touching one of the guys chest. He walked up behind her. "Didn't I dump you this morning?" Willow asked.
"I want you" He whispered fiercly. He figured this Willow was just a little more amorous, but still loved him. "More than life itself."
She turned and looked at him. "I was wondering when you'd come around" She said
"Are you good?"
"The best you've ever had, or ever will have." He said, grinning. She put an arm around him.
"I'm all yours."
Giles looked into his mirror intently, watching his reflection closley. He stared into it, just watching, when the hands grabbed him and dragged him into the mirror. He fought momentarily, but soon was dragged in. Angel walked in right after in time to see the other Giles step out and get down on all fours. He began to giggle. "Giles, what...?" He began. Giles just laughed stupidly and sat indian style on the floor. "Great, now what the hell am I going to do?
