Challenge: # 47: Holiday/Vacation at drabble_weekly.
Spoilers/Setting: Between seasons one and two.
Summary: Slayers don’t get to take vacations.
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the amazing Joss Whedon.
Being the Slayer means Buffy doesn’t get vacations; even during summer break she still has a job to do. She can’t afford to shirk her responsibilities because if she does, all Hell could break loose, and she means that literally. Vampires and demons aren’t big on kicking back and relaxing.
Spending a few weeks with her dad makes no difference; she talks to Giles every day, and patrols every night. Same old same old, just a different location. So much for hanging with friends and having fun. Vamps just love L.A.
On the other hand, at least she’s not bored.
