Fic challenge for 2014 #10 ~ An Honorable Farewell


this one was just written for open on sunday's (un)dress prompt.

Title: An Honorable Farewell
Author: kerkevik
Fandom: BtVS (post-series)
Characters: Buffy; Giles; Willow; Dawn; Sam; Riley; Kennedy;
Summary: A simple man gets an honorable send-off
Warning: Character death

Silently the honor guard assembled.

Eighteen of them; four to a coffin, except one.

Buffy wore a black dress of her mother's; Giles a simple black suit.

In front of them, Sam wore a simple black beret, with a single lavender bloom. She nodded at them, then raised her ceremonial sword.

Willow parted from her girlfriend, and joined Dawn beside them.

A tall finely held african-american couple, in neatly tailored dress suits handed a flag, to Sam's husband.

In full dress uniform, Riley slowly raised the flag to half-mast, and saluted.

Kennedy played her pipes.

And a simple carpenter went to his rest.

Goddess watch over us all,
'tis ok to be Takei,
