Fics for 2015 #023 ~ Promises Made to a Lady IX. The Trapping of the Mouse

 Penultimate episode now; though if this was a TV show, or possibly one of the better movies this would be the last of the main action before the scene the real fans are rewarded with at the denouement.
 This was the other part I had to rework a bit to remove the creeping errors that occur when you have to make changes earlier in the story; it remains the case this ten-part pre-series WWII buffyverse story was conceived and written in a few short hours last Sunday afternoon, while I was internet-less and unsatisfied with what I had on my external hard-drive.
 Think I should maybe do that more often?

  TITLE: Promises Made to a Lady IX. The Trapping of a Mouse
  AUTHOR: kerkevik_2014
  LENGTH: 100
  A/N: Yes the title IS a play on the title of, possibly, British theatre's most-famous play, and Gustav is finally free of his obsession and is about to be a proper Watcher again, or..?

IX. The Trapping of a Mouse (November 1944)

     Burnt down weeks ago, the barn was but a shell, but Gustav settled there to plan his next move anyway.
     Finally he understood the leeches movements during the Occupaton. It had never intended escaping Dunkerque; killed Emilie. He had trailed it only to let her real killer escape.
    There was still a chance the Slayer was alive; there was silence from the Watcher's.
    He kicked a scorched pail; verdamnt, he should have...
    It had too patriotic...

    Spike rose from the corpse; deliciously licking a trail of it's blood from his chin.
    Even he wasn't so stupid as to turn him.

 May the Goddess watch over us all,
