Safeguard

Andrew cocked his head, hearing the familiar dull roar in the distance. He hurriedly made his final rounds of the gym, making sure everything was locked down and in its place before the arrival of his new group of Slayers.

The girls filed into the room in a chattering mass loud enough to wake the dead; or, in the case of Slayers, make the undead wish they'd never risen.

Andrew introduced the girls to their new responsibilities as protectors of mankind. He handed out their Nerf stakes, knowing someone would still manage to inflict damage before the day was done.

Do they special-order the stakes? And if so, does anyone ask questions? Inquiring minds want to know! :-)

Considering some of the toys you see, I'd be surprised if anyone questioned anything these days.

Yeah I can see a nerf football as a stake.

I don't think anyone in their right mind would give hormonal teenage girls to keys to the weapons cabinet. Well, not after that first incident that Giles still refuses to speak about.

Come to think of it, you'd think there was some kind of "breaking in" weapon used, even back when there was only one slayer. Otherwise, I wonder how many watchers had to be replaced?

Fun to think of what Andrew's life consists of these days.

Nice to see him taking his duties so seriously. Great capture of Andrew, truly.

Thanks! I didn't expect to have an affinity for Andrew, maybe I should get out more.
