The Big Moments

Chapter Text

Jesse spots Cordelia on his first day at Sunnydale High. “Who’s she?” he asks Xander, who’s showing him around.

”Out of your league, my friend,” he says. “Oh, this is my best friend Willow.” The red-haired girl blushes as Xander introduces them.

“Willow’s really smart,” Xander explains. “If you need study help, she’s your girl.”

“Thanks, Xander.” Willow looks a little put out.

“Uh-huh,” says Jesse, his mind still on Cordelia.

“New loser for your posse, Xander?” Cordelia asks on seeing them. Her surrounding friends giggle.

“See? Not in the human league,” Xander tells Jesse.

He smiles. “Give it time.”
