Disclaimer: The Covenant and Buffy the Vampire Slayer are not of my own creation. They belong to Sony Pictures / J.S. Cardone & Joss Whedon. Also the text used in this chapter aren't mine; they're borrowed from the opening credits of the movie and the TV series.

PhoenixRae's Notes: This story pretty much picks up where the movie ended and post-season 7 of BtVS.

Summary: His remains weren't found in ruins left by the burnt down barn. No one knew what happened to him or where he went, but he was back now and intent on draining the power of the one person he underestimated...

Buffy's Covenant
by PhoenixRae

Prologue: Foreword

No one really knows how The Power came to be.

Not even the Book of Damnation recorded its beginning.
But those who mastered it have always been hunted.

In the middle of the 17th Century, many
escaped the brutal Witch-hunting in England
and France by coming to America.

As the brutal prosecution of those with The Power
spread throughout Massachusetts, the families of
Ipswich formed a Covenant of silence.

And for 300 years, it has kept them safe.

Until now.

Into each generation a Slayer is born.

One girl in all the world, a Chosen One.

One born with the strength and skill to fight
the vampires, to stop the spread of their
evil and the swell of their numbers.
