When in your life did you know you were not alone?  
It was Xander. Right after the mix up with Amanda and me thinking I was one of the potentials I was feeling useless. I mean what did I really do? I researched and played the little sister and I played that part so well. There was always something to remind me that I wasn’t special and I’ve never considered being not real as being special and no one is going to convince me that it makes me special so there’s really no reason to try.

Anyways, Xander made me feel like I wasn’t alone. He called me extraordinary and he reminded me that yes, we may not have super powers but we are just as important to the world and saving it as any of the slayers or other good guys because we knew and we were doing something to help.

Nothing is too small a contribution. For once in my life the world didn’t seem so bad because we were saving it. It didn’t matter then that I didn’t have the kind of higher purpose that made me a slayer like Buffy or Kennedy or any of the other slayers/potentials. I still had a purpose and Xander reminded me of that. It was nice, to not feel so alone in the face of everything that was to come.

Even if he did kidnap me on Buffy’s orders later.

The whole kidnapping thing? I still say it was never my idea. You know me, I might not be the run into the whole battle screaming some battle cry type, but I stick around for the most part.

It's true though. You are extraordinary, and in the purest definition of the word too, you'll always be that too. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you are any less.

If they do tell them there is a pissed off carpenter waiting to tell them otherwise.

Xander's good that way, isn't he?
