Back in the kitchen, Xander had managed to get off of the table without hurting himself. He spied Dawn standing, still frozen, in the living room and was about to move to her when he heard someone coming down the stairs. Quickly jumping up and sticking to the ceiling, Xander hid himself as Jen bounded down the stairs. Her blonde pony tail bounced around as she looked around the kitchen. “I swear I heard something break down here,” she commented to herself, investigating around the kitchen. “Oh well,” she shrugged and walked over to the fridge for some eggnog.
Xander gently let go of the ceiling and floated down behind Jen, in his first graceful move in months. He landed without a single sound revealing his presence. He reached forward, and in one smooth motion, wrapped his tail around Jen’s waist and pulled her to him. Gently placing one hand over her mouth, and another holding her free arm, he whispered to Jen. “Easy little genie, I won’t hurt you,” he said in a soothing voice as he started to drain her energy.
Jen gasped in shock, but it was muffled by Xander’s hand. She tried to struggle but she was feeling so weak, so tired, that any struggling she could attempt was futile. She slumped back into Xander and her mind fogged over causing her to forget what she was doing, or why she was feebly struggling. She just wanted to relax. The person behind her was so strong that she could just lean back and relax into him.
