Numb

NumbAndrew dismissed the class and waited until the last Slayer had left the room before waddling over to the wall. He'd have preferred to collapse on the floor, but his sumo-like padding would have just resulted in an embarrassing turtle impression.

He'd agreed to take over the training classes, while Xander sorted out the mess at their apartment, which was only tangentially Andrew's fault.

Sighing as he heard the approach of the next class, Andrew levered himself upright and wondered whether sensation would soon return to his body or if he'd be spending the rest of the week mercifully numb.

Only tangentially? And what universe is he living in, pray tell?

Also, Turtle!Andrew! *cracks up* (My mental image is something like a cross between a demented mummy and the Michelin tire man.)

It wasn't his fault that Dawn gave the Retjull's his address and they destroyed the wrong collection, even if he did start it by insulting them with decaf.

I think turtle!Andrew would have killed what respect he's managed to earn with the Slayers.

I'd love to know who he thinks he's sharing the blame with. *smirks* I don't seem to recall anyone else pissing the demons off.

Andrew did screw up with the coffee, but Dawn sent the Retujulls around and they got the wrong collection. Apparently, paper is more fun to shred than little plastic men. Who'd have thought?

Admittedly, paper is much easier to ruin.

Poor Andrew, he's a lover not a fighter... or something. ;)

Maybe he's just desperately trying not to be a turtle. He means well, he just seems to make things worse.

Amusing as usual. Poor Andrew!

He does seem to make life complicated for himself.

He does try. I think he would be much safer being beat up by Slayers than hanging about watching Xander clean up his shredded comics anyway.

Wonderful visual image. I can just imagine Andrew flat on his back, wiggling his arms and legs until someone comes along to turn him over. Love the way you write Andrew.

I can't see the Slayers helping him either. Taken incriminating photos on their phonecams for certain, but I think actually helping the poor lad up would be beyond the realms of possibility with the laughter involved.

I love Andrew's awkwardness. He is my not so inner geek.
