The hot sun beat down as he chased the creature who had been ransacking stores. Sweat poured down his body. He almost slipped, barely caught himself, and still tore his outfit. He looked down at his ripped shorts; several palm trees had been sliced in half.

A curse slipped from him. Giles' gaze darted between the squawking, running flamingo and a nearby store. He would take care of his own problem first, then slay the flamingo Demon, and make Xander think he was slayed when he returned for replacing all his sensible clothes with Hawaiian shirts and Bermuda shorts. "Children!"

The End

Lol. All the credit shall be yours for actually using flamingoes. You made me giggle!

LOL. Very nice. And you did the flamingo thing.

But careful. If we keep giving Capitano what she wants, she'll just keep finding new was to torture us.

Torture, inspiration? Who can really tell the difference?

But any way, I'm glad this one went over so well and you enjoyed it. I also found it rather surprising that, after writing this drabble, my beloved Drew and I spotted a Witch flamingo in a leftover Halloween sale.

I love the imagery, just where were those palm trees. :-) Love the idea of a flamingo demon too.

Hahahaha Xander. That might be the best prank on Giles ever!

And go you! for getting that flamingo in there. That Capitano... she likes her little crack challenges... ;)

I never mind a little crack myself. :-) I'm glad you enjoyed it; thanks for the comments!
