Prologue: Return to the Past

Laying in the darkness of the alleyway, Tara Maclay reflected on the last year of her life. She knew that her life was coming to an end soon, she felt in as her consciousness drifted and the cries of her only love began to fade. Tara struggled to hold on, to stay with her, but she knew that she couldn't. So instead, she closed her eyes and let her memories take her away.

Disclaimer: I do not own any of the characters from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. All those amazing characters belong to Joss Whedon. I only own any new characters. The idea for the story came from listening to Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend".

A/N: I know it's super short, but I wanted to start off in the future and leave you at a very curious peak. Please forgive me if I take some time writing this. I work a lot, and I rarely feel like thinking after a long day. This is a Willow and Tara story for anyone who wants to know. I would never interfere with their love. Enjoy and please review and follow.
