A/N: 100 words first try!
Standing in her bedroom, Buffy stares at her reflection in the mirror. The girl staring back at her looks just like any other Californian teenager, a pretty enough face, blonde hair, decent figure, neither too thin nor too fat; fairly average if she’s brutally honest with herself. She’ll never be tall and willowy, that’s not in her genes; she’s destined always to be petite. Could be worse; at least she doesn’t have bad acne.
The mirror is a liar though, because she’s not like any other teen, or any other person. She’s the Slayer, the only one in the world.
