I'm back, missed you all. I've finished writing two and a half scripts for Buffy Between the Lines (and a promo that should be coming out sometime in the next few weeks.)
Title: Parting Words.
Character: Joyce, Buffy
Spoilers: 'I Was Made To Love You' and 'The Body'
Title: Girl in a car
Timeline: Post Graduation Day
Cordelia sat waiting for the next bus. A car pulled up.
“LA. Where you headed?” she asks.
“I’m driving to all 50 states.”
“I’m going to be an actress.” It be easy enough to pick apart both ambitions, but they don’t.
She gets out at the rich side of town. She knows won’t be staying.
“Thanks.” She gives him a winning smile. “I hope that I never see you again Xander.”
She leans in and kisses him on the cheek.
As he drives away, some part of her leaves too. She’s not sure what it is.
Every story has a resolution (unless it’s post-modernist or cancelled by Fox). I told the beginning on a stage to a audience of me - a spell went awry and my friends lost their memories and I woke up a demon. It would have happened but I sounded the starter’s pistol.
And now it ends because a pretty, dead lady laid out her own yarn. My chance at resolution - the thing I’ve been after.
I knocked back Seabreezes to calm my nerves. It makes it easier to smile as it pulls up.
Besides who doesn’t love a limo ride.
