Pardon

by Marcus L. Rowland

"This one, Faith," says Toby's FBI friend, pointing at the woman on the left of the photo. "Criminal record, murder and aggravated assault. Pardoned by the Governor of California."

"Why?"

"Irregularities in the trial, she was technically a minor."

"And the others?"

"This one, the blonde, was a suspect for that murder, and on the wanted list for another murder a few months earlier."

"No convictions?"

"Nothing."

"Anything else I should know?"

"Two things. They were all on the last bus out of Sunnydale..." He hesitates.

"And?"

"And she was pardoned on Presidential advice. Very, very quiet advice."

"Oh crap."

"Exactly."
