Drabble For open_on_sunday - #1

This week's challenge: write a drabble based on a title from a Tori Amos song, in any way that said title inspires you.

BtVS – Season 7 – Post Chosen – Character Death


Heart Attack at 23
When all was said and done, it was rather anti-climactic. It wasn’t the Hellmouth, or any of the assorted demons or vampires she’d fought. It wasn’t the collapse of Sunnydale, nor was it losing the one who was steadfast and true in the face of derision and hatred, first from her, and then from those who claimed to love her.

No, it was rather simple, actually. She was sitting in a room provided by Angel, away from everyone else – alone, again. In the end, a Slayer is always alone. Her obituary read: Buffy Summers, deceased… A heart attack at 23.

Lovely job, ma belle. Of course, it raises more questions than answers, such as WHY did she have a heart attack, and why did Angel set up a room for her, etc. *grin* That means sequel, doesn't it? :-P

So glad you enjoyed, Robin! Gee, you raise such interesting questions. Perhaps you'd be interested in writing a continuation?

I can't believe I killed Buffy. Really. Just sorta hit me by title - 'cause I don't know one Tori Amos song from another. Glad you liked.

I really need to know more.

I loved it but I need that backstory.
