Synopsis

Responsibility sucks. And sometimes, there's no avoiding it. You are what you are. You do what you do. For newly minted fifteen-year-old Buffy Summers, that means being the Slayer — a protector against the demons that shadow mankind. Or on this night, a fate worse than that… a Friday night stuck dragging her little sister around the Santa Monica pier!
