Fifth Drabble

Here's the next story of the Batman / BtVS series. I'm beginning to wish I hadn't used numbers in the titles, this is already looking a little strained...

I'll post to archives later today if there's nothing too horribly wrong with it. Let me know what you think...

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, Second Thoughts, Third Party and Fourth Possibility.

Fifth Ring

By Marcus L. Rowland

"You're a wee puppet-man," jeers the blonde Englishman, "With a little bat-puppet pal."

Angel growls and leaps at him, Batman throws a felt Batarang and line to entangle his legs.

The blonde topples through a glass wall, Angel head-butting him as he goes down. Batman kicks his ribs, realises he's still got his strength. During the fight he notices that Angel and Spike are both much stronger.

. . . . .

"You could be stuck like this," says the girl called Fred, "unless we can find a counter-spell."

"Not acceptable," says Batman, pressing phone buttons with stubby fingers.

On the fifth ring Zatanna answers.
