Terror Nova part Twenty Eight and a half (Buffyverse/NCIS)

Cos I felt guilty about not giving you ANYTHING, here's the first part of the next part.

“You know, in a way, I’m really sorry about this, Grumps,” Buffy Summers said cheerfully as she landed a hefty punch directly into Gibbs’ ribcage. Following it up with a spinning kick, she practically bounced up and down in the corridor as Gibbs flew to the floor. “It’s just, y’know, nice to stretch again after sitting down for so long.”

Her head snapped round, and she expertly stepped to the side, avoiding Elizabeth Summers’ rush. “No, really don’t think so. Now I’m over that whole unexpected wrestling with yourself in the dark debacle, I’m not going to go easy on you anymore.”

Her eyes narrowed as she watched Elizabeth’s face intently. The FBI agent managed to spin around before she hit the wall, and automatically fell into a fighting stance. “Though I will give you one free shot,” Buffy smirked, “.....if you tell me what that lipstick is.”

Elizabeth Summers stared at Buffy Summers who stared right back. A small smile crossed both their faces.

Elizabeth Summers started circling Buffy, who just turned in place, tracking her. “Why should I tell you?” she asked Buffy, raising one eyebrow. “It could be Avon, could be Cover Girl, could be any number of brands...”

Buffy smiled and made a beckoning gesture with one hand. “’Cos I know you. For a free shot, and you know I’d let you, you’d tell me.”

Elizabeth tilted her head, but still kept her guard raised. “Point,” she conceded, “Okay. Why don’t you tell me what you think it is?”

Buffy’s eyebrows also raised. “Ooh. Tricky,” she breathed, studying Elizabeth carefully. “Okay, well, please don’t say it’s Urban Decay cos everyone keeps trying to give me that because they like the name.”

Elizabeth rolled her eyes. “No. That’ll be the guys only going by the name, right?”

“I know! How hard would it be to get me something sharp and pointy like all the other girls, but no! Must remind Buffy of her feminine roots. Mind you, Faith only ever gets given knives, and I think she’s getting fed up of that.”

Buffy paused, mid-flow. “Wait. I’m digressing again. Hate that.” She studied Elizabeth again consideringly. “Could be Clinique, but I doubt it. I’d bet on Lancome, with a slight possibility that maybe it’s Maybel..”

She was abruptly cut off as a charging Agent Gibbs hit her from behind, carrying the two of them directly into Elizabeth Summers. “Damn it, Gibbs!!!”
