Curse in the Blood

Author: MH <mh_7[at]>

SUMMARY: Xander has a family curse, one that he finds out... the hard way


DISCLAIMER: You know the drill by now. So why should I waste time writing down what everybody knows now by memory. 'I don't own the rights to any of the characters that I'm using' and all that crap.


Chapter 1

Jenny Calendar walked into her classroom holding an arm full of papers and her coffee mug. She set down her mug and the papers on he desk and began to go through them.

Behind her a man in a dark suit and hat approached her.

"Jenny Calendar," the man said.

Jenny quickly span around to face the voice, startled.

"Uncle Enyos," Jenny said, "what are you doing here?"

"I was coming to ask how the situation with Angelus was coming," Enyos replied, "but an older evil has taken higher priority for the safety of our clan. The elder woman has been reading strange signs. Dracula, once believed to have been destroyed by our savior Van Helsing, has returned from hell to exact vengeance on our people and the Van Helsing bloodline."

Chapter 2

Xander walked quickly down the hallway.

'This is so cool,' Xander thought, 'knowing Giles is finally paying off. Free pass outta classes whenever Giles needs us to help him in the library.'

Xander walked in to find that everyone, even a new face, was already in the library.

Giles, Buffy, Willow, Cordelia, and Oz were here. Even Dead Boy seemed to have found time in his dead schedule to attend this meeting. Ms. Calendar was here with an old guy... older than Giles.

"So," Xander announced, "what's this meeting about."

"Xander," Giles said, "I think you should sit down before we begin."

Xander finally noticed the strange face that Giles was making. As if someone had kicked his puppy, or something.

"This is my uncle," Jenny stated, "Enyos Kalderash."

"I have come to ask for help," Enyos said, "an old enemy of our clan has resurfaced and is threatening our very existence."

"I wish we could help," Buffy began, "but we got big problems here in Sunnydale with Spike and Drusilla."

"It is not necessary for you to leave Sunnydale," Enyos said, "our enemy has driven us out of Romania, and is coming here to finish what he started many centuries ago."

"WHAT?!?" several voices cried out at this news.
