Stooping to pick a damaged metal object from the mess, Spike noted that it smelled of blood. "This wouldn't have anything to do with a phone call that consisted of a shriek, a thump and a dismissal would it?"

Dawn explained that Rachel has been excited over managing to assemble their new flat pack bookcase with the cryptic instructions. She'd just finished when they were attacked by a rampaging Hefrelth demon and Rachel had swung around, accidentally decapitated their assailant with a spirit level.

Spike laughed in admiration. "Remind me to stay away from that girl when she's wielding tools."

I would expect it was literally a shriek, a thump, then a curt Never mind as Dawn hangs up to make a quick call through to Giles to organise a cleaning crew. Just enough to make you panic and wonder what the hell is going on.

lol, things like that just make me laugh. like when someone trips up behind the main action on-camera. i'm a fool for slapstick, when it's done right.

Wow, Rachel is impressive. She actually managed to assemble furniture; color me jealous.

It was a good day, she assembled the furniture and disassembled the demon.

Adam -- worst of both worlds
One thing I've learned as a firefighter is that destruction is a whole lot easier than building something. I'll take a demon over assembling office furniture, any day. Unless I had to assemble the demon.

Wow, that was some phone call! :D I liked how you phrased that accidental decapitation part.

I like the old comedy routine of the guy spinning around and not realising he's smacked his workmate in the head with the ladder. Sometimes you just have to run with the classics.
