Note: It's been awhile, but I managed to get this written after a night of drunkeness. Ha! Hangovers? What are those?
Lilah Morgan did not, contrary to the popular theory presented by students, spend her lunch hour devouring baby heads instead of eating in the teacher's lounge. Sometimes, however, she wished she did, because it was times like these that she never wanted to be witness to anything. Especially anything associated with Ethan.
Ethan had been twitchy for a few minutes now, watching Rupert read across the room. A strange energy seemed to radiate from him and Lilah was knowledgeable enough to know that he was in a moment of total and complete chaos. And not the fun evil kind, but the crazed kind of a man at the end of the proverbial rope. Lilah really wished she wasn't the one to witness this, but she couldn't seem to remove her eyes from Ethan as he stood up and stalked toward Rupert.
Glances were shared throughout the lounge. Wesley turned pale. Charles, who had been making sad and love filled eyes at Wesley, stared with his jaw hanging open. No, none of them were planning on missing this.
Rupert looked up at Ethan approached. "Oh, hello, Ethan."
"Rupert," Ethan replied.
There was a moment of silence. Then, Ethan sighed and grabbed Rupert by the collar and dragged him to his feet. Rupert sputtered in an undignified way that made Lilah smirk and slapped Ethan's hands away. "I beg your pardon, but what do you want?"
"I'm sorry it's come to this," Ethan announced rather loudly. "Well, actually, I'm not sorry at all, but I'm trying to be polite here."
"Is there a point you're trying to make?" Rupert asked, looking confused.
"Yes, actually," Ethan responded. Another moment of silence, with Rupert appearing expectant. Then Ethan grabbed him roughly and yanked him forward, kissing him for all he was worth.
Lilah had never seen the appeal men had for lesbian porn. Yet, watching these two men make out Lilah had to admit that maybe men had the right idea and she should have been ordering gay porn all along.
Too bad Rupert didn't share this sentiment, because he was trying desperately to shove Ethan away. It didn't work. Ethan was holding on like steel, gripping him close in what could be considered a hug to some.
Lilah could practically see Ethan's tongue slip into Giles' mouth.
Finally, however, all good things came to an end. As Ethan's hand trailed down to grab at Giles' buttocks, Giles wrenched himself away with a yelp. The two stared at each other for a moment, both panting. Slowly, Giles noticed the other teachers watching. Redness erupted around his neck, quickly spreading up into his cheeks.
Lilah couldn’t help it. She raised her hands and began clapping. Giles glared, but Ethan only had eyes for him and didn't even bother to acknowledge Lilah.
"I believe that will be quite enough, Ms. Morgan," Giles ground out.
"But it was such a lovely display," Lilah replied.
Giles ignored her. "Ethan, really, this must stop."
"Actually, it's only begun," Ethan said, a manic sort of glee appearing in his eyes. Giles' eyes widened. "I have no problem with turning into a creepy stalker, Rupert, and you very well know it."
Giles looked thoughtful. Then, before Lilah's eyes, she saw a determination wash over the librarian. She realized he had just taken Ethan's words as a challenge. A challenge which would determine who would survive Ethan being a stalker.
Lilah really was thankful she got the transfer to Sunnydale High. Life was so entertaining here.
