Warning: Beware if you like Riley or Olivia!

It had been a few years since Rupert Giles had seen his sister Eva, but time and distance had not diminished her joy for life nor her sense of humor, when she learnt that her older brother had a crush on his Slayer.

"So tell me, Ru. Are there any wedding bells ringing for you and Buffy?" Eva asked, the sparkle in her eyes made the Watcher groan and roll his eyes with annoyance at his sister's teasing.

He sighed. "Honestly, Eva! It isn't like that. Buffy doesn't have feeling for me not in the way that you're implying at any rate." Eva shook her head and snorted.

"And whose fault is that, may I ask? I'm sorry brother dear, you had your chance to tell Buffy when is she was what? Nineteen?" She shook her head again this time in utter disgust. "But oh, no. You decide to take up with that tart Olivia. It's no wonder your Slayer settled for- what did you call him? Oh yes, that Nancy- ninja boy." Again Eva shook her head.

 "Can't say that I blame her," she said. Giles stared at his sister in utter shock.

"You're taking her side." He said, his voice sounded like someone had kicked his favorite dog. Eva rolled her eyes at how childish he sounded.

"No, I'm not taking her side, or anyone else's for that matter. But, let's just say I know how she felt because there was a time where I felt the exact same thing, back when I was in University." Eva took Giles' hands and gave them a gentle squeeze. "What I am saying is that you need to tell Buffy how you truly feel about her before you lose her for good."

Giles sighed and looked down at his sister's hands and realized that she was right. He needed to tell Buffy how he truly felt, the sooner the better before he lost the chance to someone else or worst yet, to time.

He smiled  "Thank you, Eva."

"For what?" asked Eva.

Giles grinned. "For giving me a much needed kick in the arse." He replied.  Eva grinned back.

"You're welcome Rupert. See you next year?"

"Absolutely. And maybe I'll bring Buffy I'm sure she'll love to meet you." Eva smiled.

And with that Rupert Giles went in search of his Slayer to tell her exactly how he felt.

FIN.

Nice, I like the idea of Giles having a sister who isn't afraid to be completely honest with him and give him a shove in the right direction now and then.

Awww. Go get her, Giles!

Very sweet story between Giles and his sister. Hopefully they will actually see more of each other now that they are both living in the same country!
