Third Buffyverse / Batman drabble - revised

I've decided to change things a little - mainly, there were comments that the story was much too compressed, so I'm breaking it into two halves. Here's the first, the second will follow tonight or tomorrow.

100-word BtVS / Angel / DC crossover Drabble. Minor spoilers. Characters are the property of their respective creators and are used without any intention of infringing copyright. This story may not be distributed on a profit-making basis. Sequel to First Contact and Second Thoughts.

Third Party

By Marcus L. Rowland

Bruce's arrival in LA is high profile, but he shakes off the press to visit Angel Investigations. The building is closed, enquiries forwarded to Wolfram and Hart. He knows their reputation, doesn't want to get close without more information.

At the third cocktail party an acquaintance mentions the lawyers' reclusive new CEO. Their web site has pictures.

That night's local news mentions sick children, unconscious, their faces ghastly smiles. The Joker's work? If it is, Angel can wait.

Oracle suggests a link to a children's show. Batman scouts the studio, sees someone breaking in. He recognises Angel, follows him in.

Comments as always welcome.
