Regret

RegretAnya leaned on the counter, a wistful smile on her face, as she listened to Spike telling Dawn about the places he'd been.

One of the benefits of working for D'Hoffryn was that it was a great way to see the world, and the odd demon dimension. It wasn't until she lost the power of the wish that Anya realised that, while she may be well-travelled, she had never seen anything of the many places she'd visited unless an act of vengeance was required.

Anya picked up the phone. Travelling for the sake of travel itself held a certain cachet.

Not just vengeance demons, you know. And even people on pleasure trips often miss so much as they hurry from sight to sight. *sigh* Very nice little character insight.

Having seen some dodgy tour groups in passing, especially the tours that herd Japanese tourists enmasse, I can only agree.

The current dodgy tour gimmick are the ones that do the bus tours of supposed duty free stores. If the tourists had the chance to look for themselves they could find what they want cheaper elsewhere.

Nice to see something from Anya's POV, after all the Spike/Dawn stuff.

This one just cried out for Anya, so Anya it was.

Anya was into her work in a big way and never relaxed like Halfrek did, so she would have missed a lot.

Very nice. It makes sense that Anya, being the workaholic that she is, wouldn't have been able to see the sights on her travels. Now, I wonder where she's going to go. ^_^

Don't know where she'd go. Just playing to the challenge.
