#72 forgotten and remembered Summary:
Ezra makes a vow.
Ezra stared at the paper, his mind reeling from the top story. A town most did their best to forget once they had escaped was no more. The authorities blamed Sunnydale’s collapse on the cave system that ran under the entire city, but he knew better. He would bet money that Buffy and her friends were responsible.
He hadn’t stayed in Sunnydale long, just a mere three months before he turned eighteen and was able to escape Maude’s grasp. When he had first arrived, he couldn’t believe his mother had dumped him in such a backwater town.
It didn’t take him long to become aware of Sunnydale’s dark secret, and shortly after that, its gold savior – in the form of Buffy Summers. She raged against the darkness and asked for nothing in return. He had quietly petitioned the school to make sure she was recognized for her efforts on Prom night.
She never knew that or him, but the look on her face that night was reward enough. He turned eighteen the next day and left town. It was because of her he decided to enter law enforcement. Others may forget the town and her, but he would always remember.
