This final prompt in this ten part series is the one that started it, and almost killed it too. I think I started working on these fics about Dawn and Lisa on the Saturday evening, properly anyway; managed to write fics for a few other prompts, but could not quite get these done before the remainder week finished. I'm pleased that I wouldn't give up on it though; even managing to create a new character; giving more depth to two others. Most pleasing is that I'm finally able to write the two main characters as an adult couple at last. Even if nobody reads, or comments, I feel able to say I have exceeded what I set out to do, and that ain't nothing.

A/N: Trillium is at the centre of a triangle of Hellmouth's, situated in Cleveland; Syracuse and Washington DC; known as the Tri-mouth, it has become the main base for the Slayer's. Another base has been established near London, under the command of Kennedy; others will, in time, follow.
They were shown a small room, with bed, shower, toilet and a kitchen of sorts.
Sarah had found a new life, briefly, before her girlfriend had left to take care of her parents.
She had a house now; left in her name in case her new life could not be rekindled.
Thrown out of her community for her 'sins against nature', and with the money left her by an uncle who, unknown to her, had been 'guilty' of the self-same sins she had bought the lease on the hardware store years ago.
She was still going to teach carpentry and plumbing and other self-sufficient life skills she had grown up with to locals seeking more independence.
The whole room was only a little less than twice the size of their own rooms at home, and they'd no space for books or much else; Sarah hadn't needed them.
But they'd have a place of their own, with only their own utilities to pay for, with the store below to use for study space, since they'd be locking and opening up for Sarah; helping out when they had free time.
As they held each other, the women saw the remainder of their lives unfolding before them.
