Drabble: Paying the Price  

I warned you this was coming. Also, I felt like it was time to give Faith her turn in Giles shorts!  Psst, you forgot tags for Faith.

Prompt: Running (Flamingos)

Paying the Price

Giles felt like he couldn’t take another step. But he was damned if he’d go out this way, and they were right behind him. He looked up… no, ahead of him. How could they be so fast? He was surrounded.

Feeling a presence behind him, he turned.


“Hey, G. Some scrape you found.”

“You must run! There are too many to fight. Get yourself to safety.”

“Relax…” was the Slayer’s final word as the flock of zombie flamingos ran her down.

Giles lurched upright, clutching his stomach… and again renewed his vow to stay out of the candy bowl.

A flock of running, zombie flamingoes. I think I wanted that to be real!

I can't believe I missed Faith from the tags. I love me some Giles/Faith. Added

Do you see what you've reduced me to?!? I used to write in-depth, thought provoking pieces... And now this!

I'm glad you liked it. Seemed like a good little 'night after' glimpse to cap the month off.

I think that's what must've affected my eldest too, who spent many wee hours this morning perched over the toilet bowl. I must ask him about flocks of zombie flamingoes.

Anyway, that was funny. Thanks for the laugh this morning!

I hope he feels better. Sometimes finding your candy limit is a hard lesson learned.

I'm glad it gave you a laugh.
