Written For: Challenge 67: Broken Glass at drabblesoup.
Spoilers/Setting: School Hard.
Summary: As if Parent / Teacher night wasn’t already bad enough, Spike just has to make things worse.
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Joss Whedon.
The windows shatter, exploding inwards as shadowy figures burst through, scattering broken glass everywhere. On a TV show it would make for an impressive stunt. In a high school, not so much.
Buffy pauses; she’d thought she was already in bad enough trouble from whatever Principal Snyder had told her mom, but this is beyond bad, bordering on the catastrophic. Spike has come calling with his merry band of vampires; everyone in the school is essentially a sitting duck with no way out.
At the risk of being grounded for eternity, Buffy takes charge. She’s the only one who can.
