Crusade
by Marcus L. Rowland

"You're resigning?" asks Leo.

"I can't take politics seriously," says Toby, "not knowing what's out there."

"Going public?"

"Who'd believe me? But my heart isn't in this any more."

"What're your plans, then?"

"Damned if I know. Write, sail round the world. Something different."

"You'd die of boredom. Guys like you need a crusade, a cause to work for."

"Maybe... but not this one."

"Okay... I think I saw this coming. Before you do anything too hasty, I'd like you to call someone."

Toby takes the card. "Rupert Giles? Who's he?"

"A man with a crusade, and a job opening."
