BtVS – No Spoilers, no set season - Spike
Big Bad Marshmallow
He’d been prowling the neighborhood for the stray fledge that might have escaped the Slayer’s patrol. This was his time of night, after everyone else had pulled up stakes.
As Spike rounded the corner heading into the alley, he heard a faint scratching and the smell of fresh blood. He found her twisted body lying amongst the detritus of Sunnydale’s slobs, blood pumping out at an alarming rate – her kittens mewling and crawling over her in blind panic.
Nothing he could do for Mum but take care of her kiddies. Maybe Buffy and Dawn would take in the helpless orphans.
