BtVS - Pre-Series - William
Little Tin Soldier
William was a good boy. Small for his age and quiet, he always listened to his mother and father. Children are seen but not heard being the edict around the Bartlett home.
As well behaved as he was, William was still only ten years old, and occasionally acted his age. The day he re-enacted a battle from the Crimean War with his tin soldiers in the dining room, his father confiscated the toys and berated the boy for making a mess for hours.
William no longer played; he became as stiff and formal as one of his little tin soldiers.
