Getting Away, by flyingcarpet
Sam and Buffy go camping for the weekend. As it turns out, neither of them know about the other’s secret identity.

{‘ "What did you say?" Buffy asked. Did college boy over there just tell her to step back? Dropping out of her attack position, she turned to face Sam, keeping one eye on the thing in the shadows. She was just in time to see him pull a shiny silver gun out from under the car seat and take aim at the creature. "Oh, you have got to be kidding me."

She hadn't seen him put any bullets in the gun, so it must've been loaded all along.

"You had a *loaded gun* in the car this whole time?" Buffy asked, incredulous. "Hello, bad idea?"

"Hey, at least one of us was prepared for this thing."

Buffy just looked at him. It's true, he was prepared. Who went on a camping trip with a loaded handgun under his seat? Who would be prepared for a demon attack on a weekend getaway? Okay, sure, she would. But she was the slayer. She-who-gets-attacked-on-weekend-getaways. But he was just—

"You have got to be kidding me," she said again. ‘}
