And we're back after two fine months mellowing over at summer_of_giles. Be sure to check out the fine work that was done over there. It rocked!

For our August theme I figured we might as well go with the prompt of RETURNING. Seemed apt.

So ficlets or drabbles on that sort of topic are all welcome. Giles in the mix is about our only rule. Have at it!

The weekly prompts will resume next Friday.

Title: Trust
Author: T. Dunn
Rating: FRC
Pairing: None
Summary: There was trust once.


"Come on, I won't let you come to any harm."
"Promise" came the unsure question, from the five year old.
"I promise son. I will keep you safe." His father replied.
The boy waded out from the shallow end of the pool and into his father's out stretched arms. All his trust was in the man who had never gone back on a promise.
And while Rupert's father held his son he knew, one day, he'd have to break that promise.

Title: Penalty
            Author: T. Dunn

           Rating: G
            Pairing: None
            Prompt: Playing Hooky
            Disclaimer: Joss owns the characters I only put them in interesting situations.

            Dawn was visiting Buffy, when there was a knock at the door. “I’ll get it.” Two men stood before her.
            “Does this young man belong here?” one asked as he stepped aside to present Giles.
            Giles was looking down at his feet; feeling not only embarrassed but ashamed. After years of telling Buffy and her friends the importance of doing what was required over what they wanted; he had taken the day to just… be.
            Buffy arrived to answer the man’s question. “Yes he does, what’s wrong officer?”
            “We caught your son,” Dawn snickered, “playing hooky. He tried to tell us, in several colorful ways, that he no long went to school. If he is out again during school hours; he will have to go before the juvenile court for truancy." Buffy glared at her, now de-aged, mentor.
            "That's it! Get in here; you're grounded until you're forty mister.”
