Drabble: Last?

From the Three Sentence Ficathon, for Brutti: Faith, one last job.

I wrote S8 fic, y'all. The end is nigh. This is just post-NFFY. Also, 'tis my first Faith fic, yay! Rated R for her mouth.

Last?

‘One last job’ was what Giles told her, what she's slapping herself with over and over so she can wake the fuck up and walk like she could never walk before: into sunshine and daisies or beer foam and strobe lights and crushing bodies, whichever she'd like and no question which she’ll choose. Only, B’s still out there putting the hurt on evil and calling Faith names in her head – Faith’s head or Buffy’s, it’s not real clear and does it matter which anyway? - and like hell is Faith is gonna let Buffy show her up this time.

Damn.

Ooooh I like very much. Also, I love how you used one sentence just to say "damn". Totally en pointe.

Thank you! It seemed a Faithish way to express all those conflicting emotions. :)

It's always going to be "one last job" for Faith — and for Buffy. Those girls get the fuzzy end, and Faith really never catches a break.

P.S. Forgot to say: nice job!

Yeah, I think Faith sealed her fate when she went to the church in "Who Are You?" She's in it to stay, now.

And thank you!
