BtVS – Season 7 – Post Chosen – Xander
Xander was alone in the middle of the lush green African veldt. Let’s face it, after growing up on the Hellmouth, what did he have to fear from lions and tigers and elephants?
Flat on his back, staring up at the full moon, he was reminded of Simba, the lion cub, looking for his father for guidance. Only Xander wasn’t seeing his father, the bastard drunk. Nope, he was seeing Spike – the former Big Bad vampire who saved the world.
Xander remembered how hard he worked to hang onto his hatred of Spike, when really it was over long ago.
