Something To Talk About by Dariclone

"Oh, I know... Oz is so un-communicative sometimes, I... just want to... not talk to him!" Willow Rosenberg exclamed, humour evident in her eyes.

Cordelia Chase nodded in agreement, a quiet laugh escaping her lips. "Our men. They drive us nuts, but what would we do without them?"

The two women were at their favourite hangout, the Bronze, enjoying a few sodas and some girl talk.

After getting over the inital shock of Cordelia dating Xander and accepted her as a member of their core group, they bonded. The two were now almost best friends.

Willow felt bad about not spending as much time with Buffy as she she used to but she and Cordelia were both in relationships now and she knew Buffy was feeling like a third wheel lately.

Oh well, Willow mused, at lest Buffy had her work to tskr her mind off thingd. And now, she had company. The blonde Slayer had been training and patrolling with Faith three times this week.

Cordelia's voice broke into Willow's thoughts. "Hello! Willow, where were you?" she asked, good natured-ly.

"I was just thinking about everything that's happend lately." Willow answered. "It's kind of funny."

"What is?"

"The way we're friends now. There was a time I would've thought someone was crazy if they said we'd be close as we are now."

"Tell me about it." Cordy grinned.

Something about her companion's expression made Willow feel different, warm inside.

"Willow? What's up? You're such a space case today."

"N-nothing. Willow said, heat rising to her face.

"You sure?" Cordelia said,with concern in her voice. She leaned forward and gently pushed a hair out of Willow's eyes.

*Just a little closer,* Willow thought suddenly, *and I could,..*

Willow hadn't noticed that she'd pushed herself slightly forward in her chair. She didn't notice anything untill she noticed he lips pushing gently, yet forcibly, against Cordelia's's lips.

Then she noticed something else. Cordelia was kissing back.

After a minute of gentle but passionate, Willow pulled away.

Cordelia looked at Willow, hurt evident in her eyes. "Let me guess... this was a mistake, you're not really gay?" Cordy asked, trying her best to sound like the bitchy Queen C she once was.

"No!" Willow interjected quickly.

"Good." Cordelia mumbled. "I had enough of that with Harmony."

"What?" Willow asked.

"Never mind." Cordy replied a little too quickly. "So what's the problem?"

"It's just that..." Willow began hesitantly, I want to try this out with you bu we have Xander and Oz, they're nice guys, *good* guys. What do we tell them?"

"Whoa, whoa. Calm down, Willow." Cordelia quickly moved to sooth her companion. "We'll think of something." she said, trying not to let her concern show.


That night, Willow was sitting in her room, apprehensive about phoneing Oz. How could she tell him she'd kissed *Cordy* of all people? Sighing, she rubbed her temples. She was just about to give up on calling Oz 'till the next day, when the phone rang. She glaned at it warily. It rang once before she decided it was best to pick it up. She had to face the music sometime.



It was Oz. He sounded distressed about someone. Willow momentairly wondered if Cordelia had decided to tell Oz herself, but she knew this wasn't the case. They had each decided to tell their own respective boyfriends and that was one agreement they would stick to.

"Oz, what is it?"

"I... I have something to tell you."

"Me too." Willow quickly blurted out.

"You first." Oz implored, urgently.

"No, you first. Willow replied, nervously.

"Well, I don't know how to tell you this... but today Xander and I were just hanging and we, um sort of made out." Oz said, quietly. Willow couldn't help it. She therw her head back and laughed.
