The bright light shined into her eyes as she walked out into the prison courtyard. It had been a difficult four years and you could see the remnants of it, as it shown through in this young woman’s eyes. Her name was Faith and as she walked toward the outdoor gym her eyes scanned the crowd. She was looking for her sister, because while they were not related by blood, her family had welcomed Faith with open arms. All of that just made Faith feel guiltier. As she started her reps she thought back on everything she had cost her sister. As a result of her actions, her sister lost her friends, her soul mate and the chance to see her daughter grow from baby to toddler. She cost her sister, the person she has looked up to, the person who understood her best, the time to live her life as freely as she possibly could. The time, which was so precious to them, they both had so little of. Still doing her reps and deep in thought Faith almost missed her instincts telling her that there was a threat approaching her from behind.
The sun blinded her for a moment as she walked into the courtyard. Her name was Elizabeth Angela Daniella Halliwell but everyone called her Buffy. She was a special Slayer and the only one of her kind in history, but she did have time to think about that now, as her attention was drawn to the large crowd around the outdoor gym. She jogged over, her instincts telling her that while her sister was annoyed and slightly amused she wasn’t in any immediate danger. As she pushed her way to the front of the crowd green eyes met brown as she checked to make sure that her sister had everything under control and didn’t need nor want any assistance.
“Ok Scarlett. What is your malfunction?” asked the brunette. When she spotted the jewel encrusted atheme in her attacker’s hand. The atheme showed the true reason behind the girl’s attack. Ever since the girls had been arrested for the murder of the Deputy Mayor of Sunnydale the Watcher’s Council had been sending assassins to kill them. They had also sent representatives to ask them to end their own lives with the reason that the Slayer line couldn’t continue without one of them dying.
“Ahh, I see. The council found another lackey to do their dirty work. Ok, quick question. How much time do you get added on to your sentence for premeditated murder? Although I seriously doubt that you can even scratch me with that, such a big weapon for a spineless child such as yourself.” Faith taunted with a smirk on her face.
“I don’t know what you’re going on about but I do know that you’re going down bitch,” sneered the other woman whose face was almost as bright red as the mop of hair on her head. She charged at Faith only to stumble past her as she stepped out of the way.
“Tisk, tisk, tisk, Scarlett you should really learn to control your temper. It will only get you hurt,” Faith said condescendingly as she picked up one of the weights that were littering the yard. Not noticing Scarlett charge her only to fall to the ground in agony, her hands cupped around her broken nose, which was gushing blood. As she had been running Faith had lifted the weight and smashed it into her face and broke her nose.
“See? I told you. You gotta watch that temper. It will only get you into trouble.” Faith said as she smiled down at the girl.
“Ok, ok. Break it up ladies,” ordered one of the on-duty officers. After that everyone wandered off as one of Scarlett’s flunkies helped her up and half carried her to the door.
“Hey B. How’s the leg?” Faith asked when she saw Buffy walking towards her with a slight limp.
“I’ll live but watch Donna. She likes to sneak attack you. Pretty sure it’s your turn next,” Buffy replied sarcastically.
“Summers! Lehane! Get your asses over here!” shouted an officer at the door.
“Well if it isn’t our favorite guard, Officer Brody,” Faith purred jokingly as the two women headed towards him.
“What’s up Brody?” Buffy asked ignoring Faith’s flirting as usual.
“Warden wants to see you two in his office now,” he answered.
“Aww, gezzz. What’d we do this time? I swear Scarlett started that fight not me,” Faith whined as they were escorted to Warden James’s office.
“What do you mean ‘we’? it was probably just you.” Buffy said with a smile on her face. A smile that quickly faded when she saw who was present in the room with the warden. A.N. -
