A/N: Double drabble.
Buffy was learning a lot under Giles’ tutelage; according to him, her fighting skills, speed, and stamina had all improved beyond expectations, her skill with the weapons of her trade was coming on by leaps and bounds, and as for her knowledge regarding the various demons she had to face…
Well, okay, she was still lacking in that department, mostly because she preferred the action side of things. Reading books made her fall asleep, but wasn’t that why she had Giles and her friends? They were so much better than she was at the book stuff.
Which led her to the other part of her problem, namely schoolwork.
Being the Slayer didn’t leave a lot of time for her curricular duties; she was too busy with her extracurricular ones. She could hardly tell her mom, “Sorry about the failing grades; I was busy saving the world from vampires.” Never mind that it was the literal truth, she’d still never be believed.
Fortunately, there was something she could do about her academic failings because one of her best buds just so happened to be the smartest girl in school. Buffy knew that under Willow’s tutelage she would soon get caught up.
