Synopsis

Buffy is still isolated from her peers - she understands that she will never be fully accepted because of her secret duty as the vampire slayer. As she carries out a 'normal' school day after a long night out hunting vampires, As she endures cruel stares and peoples whispers she notices in the distance an odd looking boy being pushed around by some school bullies. She empathises with him immediately, puzzling over his abnormal appearance. His albino white skin the mockery for all. She befriends him at once. At lunchtime they talk together, relating to each other's odd existences and their alienation by society. That night Powder secretly follows Buffy and Willow to the graveyard where Buffy is keeping watch and slaying. Tragically here, Powder is caught unprepared in the crossfire and is killed by a vampire. Buffy is left alone and isolated, wrapped in guilt.

In every generation there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer.

BUFFY
Great, now I'm going to be late. (She bends down and begins picking up her weapons to replace them in her locker.)
Camera pans to show surrounding students now silent and still, planting startled yet knowing looks on Buffy and her wooden contraptions whispering behind cuffed hands and knowingly pointing.
ONLOOKER #1
What a freak
ONLOOKER #2
What does she think she is?
ONLOOKER #2
We live in Sunnydale I mean hello?
Oblivious until now, Buffy suddenly becomes aware of the scene she has created as she overhears her fellow peers cruel taunts.
