Written For: Challenge 77: Fools Rush In at drabblesoup.
Spoilers/Setting: Never Kill A Boy On The First Date.
Summary: Buffy leapt at the chance to date Owen Thurman, until she realised she might well get him killed.
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Joss Whedon.
Owen is amazing; Buffy has the biggest crush on him. Amazingly, he’s noticed her too, which is surprising; Owen’s not much of a talker, he usually keeps to himself, reading, and brooding in that dreamy way he has.
Buffy only means to sit with him at lunch, maybe talk a bit, and next thing she knows she’s agreed to meet Owen at the Bronze. Then everything goes to Hell with the Order of Aurelius, her date takes a detour to the Sunnydale Funeral Home, and Owen almost ends up dead.
She was foolish to think she could have a life.
