Note: Written for a prompt at Open on Sunday: unusual

She'd been a girl when he'd come for her. Mother and father had given her up, had told her it was an honor. She never saw them again.

Each morning she woke at dawn and ran fifty miles before breakfast. She could perform all of the katas perfectly by the time she was twelve, although free-form fighting took her longer to master. She could cite, often word for word, the ancient tomes without referring back to the original documents. When she was sixteen, she killed her first demon.

Before Sunnydale, Kendra never stopped to think that her life was unusual.

Poor Kendra! She was the dutiful slayer who followed all the rules, and look where it got her.

It's always nice to see Kendra in fic. You did a very good job with this.

Thank you. I think this is my first time writing Kendra.

Aw, Kendra. That girl must have been very shaken after leaving Sunnydale the first time (the only time?).

Thanks. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that messed with her worldview. ;-)

Ah, poor Kendra. Buffy's version of Chosen One-ness must have come as a terrible shock to her. It's probably lucky that she never knew Faith :D

*laughs* I had never thought about Kendra's reaction to Faith. You're spot on with that! ;-)
