Drabble: 10/30/98  
Part 1/4, 2/4, 3/4

Title: 10/30/98 (Halloween set 4/4)
Author: Gilescandy
Rating: FRC
Characters: Core Four
Prompt: Running

10/30/98

“… in a meeting with Snyder.”

Willow frowned, “Poor Giles.”

“It’s time to step it up, Ladies.”  Xander entered with a bag.  “G-man thinks he can ignore us?  Ha!”

Buffy examined the contents.  “Double-sided tape, cotton webs, Bottle-O-Blood…?”

“You girls get started.  I’ll look-out.”

“But, how do we know where he’ll go?”

Willow sighed.  “Take a book from that section and put it on his cart.”

“Look at our resident evil genius,” Buffy grinned.

“And remember he’s over six foot, so put the webs high and stretch them thin.”

It wasn’t long before Xander sprinted though.  “…with the running now!”

“…with the running now!” *laughs and laughs and laughs* Lovely use of the prompt!

Thank you. I'm so glad it made you laugh. These kids are getting annoying. I don't know how much more Giles will put up with.

Lol. I do love 'with the running now'.

Want the rest now. Post the rest!

I am very happy you liked my prompt use. It's not like you were tossing me softballs this month... You guys did nothing I expected!

Ha! Always leave 'em wanting more! You will get the main feature soon. I promise.

Truthfully, we got lucky. Two nights ago my laptop died the death on me. I have to take it in and hope they can resurrect it. Thank the Lord, I had already sent the story to my mom and sis for proofreading. I can use one of their computers to post it. Just cross your fingers that all my work on the xmas fic and others can be saved. I cried.

UPDATE: The laptop lives!

I like to think of the flamingo prompt as my breaking ball ;)

Yay for the laptop!

Looking forward to the rest of the story too.

I am very familiar with laptops and their inopportune time to wig out. Praying you have your other pieces backed up somewhere.

Thank you. Me too! It's very hard for me to wait to post new work. Almost time though.

The laptop is behaving very well now. I took it and had a 'geek' threaten it. But, I think another full backup will be happening soon.

LOL I imagine finding a time when Giles is out of the library is tough.

Run, Scoobies, Run! :)

Funny enough, finding ways to get him out of the library was the hardest part of this set. Glad you enjoyed.
