Only got four more to go before I have to get off my ass and compose some more of these fics; even some for outside Dawn and Lisa's world. Hope you've enjoyed reading these elisi , there are more to come.
TITLE: Reflecting the Shadows of a Mother's Love
FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
CHARACTERS: Lisa; Dawn; Lisa's Dad;
SUMMARY: Lisa reflections as Dawn approaches for her answer to a vital piece of news.
A/N: Extensive re-write on this one, as I realised I'd basically written the same story twice; one hundred words in both cases; this one, ironically reading better than the original of the other I'd already finished. This might prove interesting as a discussion topic at a later date.
“It doesn't matter how old she really is. You're feelings are just as real.”
Lisa watched Dawn crossing the Quad from the Science building; Butterflies the size of Mothra doing manouvres in her stomach.
“I can't protect you forever; your Mother taught me that.”
She started counting down from a hundred; simultaneously reciting the lyrics to Lucretia, My Reflection; they're song, as well as listing the periodic table – in reverse.
She was nervous.
Her dad had just nodded; tears in his eyes, after she asked about her Mom.
“She cares about you, Lisa. Deeply.”
So neither needed to add a word.
Goddess watch over us all,
