second birthday drabble of the year. This is for makd's birthday, and all Buffyverse. I have a name in mind if I write this character again, which I think is likely, but it is not revealed here.
Word count: 100
A/N: a) Chattel slavery, also called traditional slavery, is so named because people are treated as the personal property (chattel) of an owner and are bought and sold as if they were commodities. It is the original form of slavery and the least prevalent form of slavery today.
b) Louisiana became a U.S. State on April 30, 1812 and on December 10, 1817, Mississippi was the 20th state admitted to the Union.
c) This would have been the US flag at the time of this drabble.
Chattel born and lived.
She was valued less than a hound when sold in Mississippi, just before it became a state.
She wouldn't have known her mother from any other woman in the fields.
If not for her watcher she'd not have known her father.
Or that she had been born in Louisiana, just before it became a state.
He had owned her mother before her, and used them both in the same way.
But he wasn't a vampire; he was Human.
And she was Human; not a monster.
So she left him lying there.
Chattel she would not die.
Hope you have a great birthday.
Goddess watch over you in the coming year,
'tis ok to be Takei,
