Characters: Buffy, Principal Flutie, Joyce.
Written For: Challenge 64: Thin Ice at drabblesoup.
Spoilers/Setting: Welcome to the Hellmouth / The Harvest.
Summary: Buffy is trying to stay out of trouble at her new school, but it’s already proving difficult.
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Joss Whedon.
Buffy has only been at Sunnydale High a few days yet already she’s on thin ice with the Principal. Flutie seemed, at first meeting, reasonably supportive and encouraging, but that had only lasted until he read the transcripts from her last school.
Since then, things have felt a little strained and when Flutie catches her attempting to leave the school grounds during the day he makes it clear that’s unacceptable behaviour. If she isn’t careful she’ll wind up getting kicked out of her new school, and she promised her mom she wouldn’t.
She doesn’t want to disappoint her mom again.
