BtVS – Season 6 – Older and Far Away – Spike
Spike knew he wasn’t really invited to Buffy’s birthday celebration. Didn’t stop him from showing up, of course – beer and Clem in tow. It was easy to blame Red’s loose lips, too. Better than saying he was a lonely, pathetic loser holed up in a crypt. They all knew it, anyway.
Dealing with the ‘muscle cramp’ in his pants, fighting that sword demon, playing cards with Buffy… it wasn’t a hardship being locked inside the house. Not for him.
When Halfrek – who was definitely Cecily – broke the spell – she broke his heart for a second time. He wanted to stay.
