You'd think after last night
, Xander would be sleeping in, and he did try, but he woke sometime long before he felt really rested. Rather than stare at the ceiling until it was a decent hour to call...people, he got up, showered, and did stuff that wouldn't wake anybody up who wasn't already awake.
It was hella later in Brazil, so he did try to call there, but he was met only with Kennedy's apologetic voice. He left a message for Willow with her and a Happy Birthday one on Buffy's cell, then went back to peering at his laptop. Noting the number of truly new
e-mails that had already come in, he decided the old ones could wait until he'd saved everybody some WTF.
To: ( E-mail flood victims ) ( Sorry about that... )
Then and only then did he let himself read through the messages he'd been sent
while he was gone, with the cellphone on hands-free so he could finally listen to the rest of his voicemail
while he read.
When the last 'old' message
started playing, though, Xander lifted his gaze from the screen and just stared. And then made a call
it was always
going to be too early to make.
When three hours had passed with no response, he made another
Which was ALWAYS a link, yes.
__[OOC: Open for a call from izzyalienqueen that he's not expecting, as well.]
