I'll actually finish this one. She is playing the roles of beta and cheering section in order to help me get this one done, God bless her. *vbg* She is also quite helpful with ideas here and there and I will try hard to remember to point those out.
The extended Scooby Gang had just dealt with yet another apocalypse and were kicked back on the couch with popcorn and watching a cheesy horror movie, laughing, joking and throwing kernels at the screen. Tonight was all they’d have before they would once more need to go their separate ways, each to their own special part of the world where they were doing the most good.
Faith was thinking how glad she was to be a part of this group, even with all the bad times over the years… her walk on the dark side, the coma, prison and even all their losses. She still missed, no-ached
-for her late husband, Robin Wood. With a sigh, she knew that was going to be a sore spot for a very long time, but also knew her friends, her family, would get her through it. With times like this, it would get easier.
A few minutes later, she got a phone call and walked away from the others and the noise of the TV before flipping the cell phone open, “You got Faith, shoot.”
The startled exclamation had the core group of Scoobies turning down the television and looking her way in concern.
Faith’s face was a study in consternation, “Are you sure you’ve got the right- Yeah, that’s her all right. Okay, yeah…” She was quiet and listened to the caller for a full minute before she said, “I’ll be there as soon as I can, I’m in Cleveland, Ohio at the moment.”
She flipped her phone closed and turned around to fully face her friends, “You know how, a few months ago, I hired a guy to look for my mom?” At her friends’ wordless nods and affirmative noises, she continued, “Well, they didn’t find her because she took off again, but they did find my baby sister. Good old Mommy Dearest took off and left her too. I’ve got to go to Cascade, Washington.”
