Past Featured StorySummary: Response to challenge by Killjoy: What if instead of the amulet being sent to Angel it got sent to Xander in Africa instead?
Going on a solo mission in the desert wasn't quite the therapeutic escape Xander had hoped for to help him move on with his life post Sunnydale. But, when Xander finds himself a new travel companion, he discovers that having an obnoxious vampire-ghost to keep him company might actually be worse than being alone in the desert.

Story Notes: For the most part, this is a buddy-fic with Spike and Xander but will be Spuffy by the end. It will also be short, less than 10 chapters. I plan to upload weekly.
 
Also, I have never been to Africa, so be prepared for generically written African accents, facts researched via Wikipedia and probably an accidental stereotype or two. I mean no offense; this is all for entertainment purposes only.
