Author Notes: This takes place during season 7 so yeah like I said before there's major spoilers for that season. Buffy & Max already have a pre-existing friendship. Max/White also have a pre-existing relationship. Sorry but my muse is totally obsessed with them. Also Willow/Kennedy aren't gonna end up in this one. Mostly because I don't like them all that much. This is also mostly in the Buffyverse so you probably really don't need to know much about Dark Angel to read it seeing as a lot of stuff is explained in later chapters.
Max was in the living room when her cell phone rang. “Hello.” Max said answering her phone.
“Hey Max. It’s Buffy.” Buffy said on the other end.
“Oh hey Buffy. What’s up? Another demon trying to cause the apocalypse again?” Max asked.
“Yeah pretty much. We could really use your help.” Buffy said.
“Sure. Any excuse to kick some demon ass.” Max said.
Buffy couldn’t help but laugh at Max’s enthusiasm. “So how soon do you think, you can be here?” Buffy asked.
“In a few days.” Max replied.
“Ok great.” Buffy said.
“Hey say hi to Dawn for me.” Max said.
“Sure. See you in a few days.” Buffy said.
“Yeah in a few days. Bye.” Max said then hung up the phone.
“Who was that?” Ames asked.
Max jumped slightly. She hadn’t heard him come in. She’d actually been living with him for the past six months though they’d been together well over a year. She turned and looked at him. “Oh just Buffy.” Max replied.
“Is that your friend from California?” Ames asked.
“Yes.” Max replied.
“What did she want?” Ames asked.
“She needs my help to stop the apocalypse.” Max answered.
“You mean the Coming?” Ames asked.
“No, that’s not the only apocalypse Ames.” Max said. “The world’s actually come close to ending several times, each time Buffy’s stopped it. She even had to die once to do it.” Max added. Max had actually helped Buffy a few times. Though she hadn’t been there, when Buffy dead, she came after to help with Dawn though. She’d been bummed when she found out she’d missed Buffy blowing up the school. Who knew the mayor was a giant snake demon? Max thought.
Ames looked at her. “Ok but if she died how is she still alive?” he asked.
“You better sit down.” Max said.
Ames took a seat on the couch, while Max sat on the table across from him. “Ok so how is she alive?” Ames asked.
“Well see Willow, a friend of hers, did a resurrection spell and brought her back.” Max answered.
“A resurrection spell?”
“Yes. Willow’s a witch. A pretty powerful one too.” Max said. Yeah so powerful she almost caused an apocalypse herself. Max thought but she wasn’t about to tell him that. She needed him to trust them. She’d felt bad for Willow though. Max had liked Tara.
“Ok so why is it that Buffy’s always the one to stop the world from ending? What’s so special about her?”
Max debated whether or not to tell him Buffy’s secret but decided he’d find out eventually. “See she’s a slayer. She kills vampires, demons, basically anything that goes bump in the night.”
Wow, vampires, demons, witches. And to think I thought they were only from the movies. He thought.
Max saw the look on his face. “Hey I know it’s a lot to handle. It was for me too when I first found out. It gets easier.” Max said.
Ames nodded. “Well if you’re going, I’m coming with you.” he stated.
“Figured as much.” Max said. Then she thought of something.
Ames saw the thoughtful look on her face. “What?”
“I was just thinking. If we’re both going, what are we gonna do about Ray? I mean it’s too dangerous for him. I don’t want him getting caught in the crossfire.” Max said.
“You’re right.” Ames said. He thought for a minute. “We could leave him with Alec.”
“Yeah unless you want to come back to a mini Alec.”
“Yeah your right forget that.”
Max thought for a minute. “We could leave him with OC. Ray seems to like her enough.”
“Ray likes everybody.” Ames said.
“No, he doesn’t like Logan.” Max stated.
“Yeah that’s true. Cindy’s fine, we can leave him with her.” Ames said. At least I don’t have to worry about her corrupting my son. He thought.
“Ok well I’ll go see her and find out if she minds taking Ray.” Max said, standing up.
Max walked into her old apartment and waited for OC to get home.
Cindy walked through the door. “Oh hey boo. What’s up?” OC asked.
“I need you to do me a favor.” Max answered.
“Sure what is it?”
“Well I need you to take Ray for a while. See Buffy needs my help and Ames is coming with.”
“Sure no problem.” Cindy said. She liked Ray. He was a good kid.
“So when are you leaving?” OC asked.
“Tomorrow. I’ll drop him off in the morning.”
“Ok. Any idea how long you’ll be gone?”
“Well it’s not a problem anyway.”
“Thanks. I should probably go though.”
“Ok I’ll see you in the morning.”
“Yeah.” Max said heading for the door.
Cindy hugged her before she got out the door. “You be careful, ok.”
“Always.” Max said then walked out the door.
Max walked through the door. Ames came out of the bedroom when he heard her come in. “So?” he asked.
“She said it’s no problem. We can drop him off before we go.” Max said.
“Where are we going?” Ray asked as he walked through the door, Alec following close behind.
“You’re going to stay with Cindy for a while. While your father and I go help a friend of mine.” Max said.
“But I wanna come with.” Ray said.
“No.” Max said.
“But...” Ray said.
“No. Now got pack.” Max said.
Ray ran into his room to pack. Fighting with her was pointless. She was just as stubborn as his father.
Once Ray was out of sight, Alec turned to Max. “So where is it you’re going?” Alec asked.
“Sunnydale. Buffy called either, said she needed my help.” Max replied.
“Oh.” Alec said. He’d never met Buffy but what Max had told him about her, he liked.
“You sure you can handle things while I’m gone?” Max asked.
“Yes. I’ll call you if I need you.” Alec said.
“Good. I’ll call you when we get there.” Max said.
“Ok but I better go. Just be careful Max.”
“I will.” Max said.
Alec turned and walked out the door.
Max turned to Ames. “I guess we better go pack too.” Max said. Ames nodded. Then they both went into the bedroom to pack.
