A/N: Drabble and a half, 150 words.

Buffy learned early on to improvise weaponry. She carried at least one stake with her wherever she went, because it paid to be prepared; vampires could still sneak around by daylight if they kept to the shadows. It wouldn’t do for her to be caught without some means of defending herself.

Nevertheless, even properly armed, accidents could happen; her stake could be stolen, lost, or knocked from her grip in a fight. It wasn’t like vampires just stood still and waited for her to stick pointy pieces of wood through their hearts. She’d be kinda worried if they did.

In a way, it’s lucky that a bit of wood is all it takes to kill vampires; it’s easy enough to come by. Tree branches, broken picket fences, the legs of chairs and the handles of garden implements have all served her well, and stakes are more easily concealed than swords.

The End
