Here's an almost-a-drabble, almost-a-double-drabble that wouldn't quite manage to be the right wordcount in either direction.

It's for [livejournal.com profile] still_grrr's happiness month, and stars Sophie (from work).



Tentatively

Working at the Doublemeat isn’t interesting, really. But there are nice bits. And nice people.

And speaking of nice people, Sophie really should show Buffy the unofficial list of Absentee Excuses, because she keeps on using the same one.

“…weird rash, and puking everywhere, so I had to go home and help, because my brother really can’t do medically things. Nope. So – family emergency.”

Michael listens to her explanation with bored scepticism. “Uh-huh. Well, next time, let your shift supervisor know before you leave, okay?”

“Sure. Sorry.” Buffy looks contrite, and he nods and walks over to check on the fries.

There is a reason sick family members are only at number seventeen on the list. It doesn’t even sound believable when it is true.

Sophie coughs politely – and raises an eyebrow. “A family emergency?”

Buffy looks around, and shrugs. “Big demon. Weird exploding eggs, secret army guys… it was a whole thing.”

She nods. “Oh. Okay.” And they share a brief smile.

It’s nice having friends at work.

Buffy could wow them with a list of excuses. Nice bit with Sophie.

Nice for Buffy, too, I imagine.

Aww! Poor Sophie, vanished after an episode. I hope she got out of Sunnydale okay.

Sophie is sadly neglected in fic. But you do her justice here!

Aww, what a nice who-knows-what kind of drabble! Yeah, I can't imagine Buffy being too good with the excuses. :P
