Willow smiled at Tara and walked over to her mini-fridge, taking out a bottle of water. "Would you like something to drink?"
"N-no thanks..." Tara looked over at Willow through her blonde locks and watched as she sat on the old, worn grey couch in her dressing room. "Tomorrow's the opening s-scene, right?"
Willow nodded and curled her feet under her as she leaned into the armrest of the couch. "Yes, Giles wanted to shoot the end first so he knew what he was working towards. It's always easier to get death scenes over with."
Tara nodded. "D-did you have anyt-thing specific in m-mind for your character?" Tara silently cursed her stuttering, as she pictured Willow in a few of the leather outfits she had seen earlier in the costume room.
Willow smiled and perked up some. "You're giving me a choice?"
Tara smiled and looked down, then to Willow. "You k-know the character best..."
Willow laughed. "That's what I keep telling Anya, but she won't listen."
Tara smiled. "She is kind of b-bossy..."
She moved to join Willow on the couch, but was interrupted by a knock at the door.
Willow sighed. "Come in."
A little girl of no more than five years of age entered the room. Her alert brown eyes scanned the room and smiled immediately when she saw Willow. She ran over and hopped into her lap. "Mommy! I missed you..."
Willow played with her soft red hair and tickled her slightly. "How was school?"
She smiled and began to relay her day in detail, when Xander entered. "Hey, Wills, sorry about that... she told me we were playing Hide and Seek, but she never seeked."
Willow smiled and tickled the girl again. "That's alright, I want Tara to meet her anyway." She turned toward Tara. "Tara, this is my daughter... well, me and Xander's daughter, Sybil."
