John Constantine finds a new Slayer in Sunnydale

The locater spell pulls at his hip uncomfortably. The sensation was really grating at his nerves. He'd been following it for nearly two hours and his hangover wasn't making things easier. The neighborhood around him was... nice. A bit too domestic for his tastes, really, but some people went for that sort of thing, he guessed.

Finally, finally, the magical pulling sensation grows to near painful levels, telling him that he was really bloody close. John pulls the taxi to the side of the road and gets out. He was in Sunnydale. Great. Home of the bloody Hellmouth. Just as well that he would find the Slayer here. Just. His. Luck.

He walks over to the closest house and is rewarded with a sharp stab to his hip. Yup. Slayer was here. John throws his smoke down on the perfectly manicured lawn and walks up to the door.

He knocks.

John might hear the muffled sounds of a girl saying something then the door opens to show a teenager that looks just the right age to be the Slayer. She is smiles, looking almost amused with seeing John here.

"Can I help you?" She asks.

"You might. Now, I know this might sound a bit creepy, but are you the only teenage girl livin' here?"

Permalink

"I don't creep out easily. Being able to defend myself helps with that, are you looking for someone that lived here before?"

Permalink

"Am looking for someone that lives here now, and might just be you. Does the super strength help much with the defending yourself part?"

This stuns the girl, she recovers, but a poker face isn't good if it fails at all.

"I don't know, do you have super strength yourself? Or know how to get it?"
Permalink

"Being a Vampire Slayer is one sure fire way to get super strength." He pauses. "I mean, I know some magic that would work, but that's mostly black magic an' you don't wanna know 'bout that."

Permalink
"Vampire Slayer..." She says, mostly to herself "or black magic..."

Quietly, but smiling she takes three steps away from the door. her posture is friendly, the door is open, but John might notice that at no point she invited him in.

John takes the silent invitation and smiles at her. "Cheers, love."

He steps over the threshold without any problems and closes the door.

"The names John Constantine. What can I call you?"

Permalink
"Arya"

Arya keeps the smiling, even as she circles around John Constantine with super-human speed and then knocks him on the ground with super-human strength, all in a single fluid motion that ends with John getting personal with the carpet while his arms are being held tight by the girl.

"Now tell me what is going on?"
Permalink
"Bloody hell!" John struggles a bit in her grip.

"The Watchers Council sent me, lemme go!"
Permalink
If he cares to, John should see Arya thinking for a moment.

"Ezra!" she calls "come here... and bring rope!"
Permalink
A teenage boy around same age as Arya walks downstairs.

"Why would you even... What the hell is going on?!" Ezra says when he sees John.
Permalink

"I'm not here to hurt you!" He grunts and tries to throw her off. "No need for the dramatics."

Permalink

"He knows... something. Mentioned black magic and a vampire slayer."

Permalink
Ezra's eyes narrow.

"Better let him go so we can hear what he has to say?"
Permalink
"You never let me have any fun."

Arya releases John.

John brushes off his trench coat and scowls at the two.

"Really, that wasn't too hard, was it." He turns to the boy. "Ezra, was it?"
Permalink

"Anthony, actually. But I prefer Ezra... and you are?"

Permalink

"John Constantine... from the something council."

Permalink

"That's the Watchers Council, love. They're the lot that run around and help the Slayer slay things. And going from that feat of strength you pulled just now... you're the Slayer. 'Grats."

Permalink

"I told you it was a magic destiny thing!" Arya says to Ezra "Can't believe the nightmares aren't clue enough to you."

Permalink
Ezra pinches the bridge of his nose "Arya..." he mutters.

"Okay...What is the Slayer? Why Arya is one? Just... explain?!"
Permalink

"So the lot of it is, the Slayer is a girl that the Powers That Be chose and gave a whole bunch of mystical powers to in order for her to fight the powers of darkness. Mostly vamps, since there are a right lot of them."

Permalink

"Powers That Be what?"

Permalink

"What kind of powers the Slayer gets?"
