Another BtVS / West Wing Drabble

I seem to be on a Drabble roll at the moment - easier than writing long pieces at present.

100-Word BtVS / West Wing Crossover Drabble. Spoilers for The West Wing 2-14, The War at Home, and for BtVS 6-15, As You Were. All characters are the property of their respective creators, and are used without any intention of infringing copyright in the original works. This story may not be distributed on a profit-making basis. Sequel to Intervention.

Last Rites

by Marcus L. Rowland</center>

Bartlet salutes the coffins of soldiers and DEA agents, then meets the survivors.

In another war there'd be a ceremony at the White House. Here the best he can offer is a handshake and some encouragement.

"Captain Finn was seconded from our special unit," says Leo, introducing the commander. His tone tells Bartlet exactly which unit he means.

"I hope you'll take some leave before your next mission," says the President.

"We're visiting California," says Samantha Finn. "Seeing some of my husband's friends, but mostly business."

"Suvolte eggs?" asks Leo. She nods.

Driving back, Bartlet hopes the next coffin won't be hers.

Later edit: adding a question as a result of reading the first two reviews of this story:

Does anyone else read this as saying that Riley is dead, because I sure as hell didn't mean it that way?
