BtVS – Season 2 – School Hard – Spike/Buffy
Death Becomes Her
He watches, silently. Baby bottled blonde; all lush ripe curves in motion. All rub and tease against the boy she’s merely toying with. Sixteen years old if she’s a day and nobody has a clue what she’s all about.
Spike can feel the sparks of Slayer energy crawling up his spine, sending messages of ‘danger’ and ‘flee’ to his muscles. He closes his eyes and luxuriates in the feeling, using it to fan the flames of his goal – her imminent death.
Her dance with the minion is far more exciting. High kicks, mini-skirts and vampire dust. He applauds her efforts.

A Thin Line
The shotgun sits comfortably in Spike’s hand, cool, smooth and ready to take the bitch out once and for all. He tries to prepare himself for the brain searing agony the chip is bound to inflict if he follows through with his plan.
He’s furious that the chip has made him resort to mechanical means to take out the Slayer. Always been a fists and fangs brawler, but he’ll end her life any way he can.
Cocks the gun, takes aim and looks into her tearstained face. That’s all it takes. “What’s wrong?” he asks, as a new dance begins.

Let Me Count the Days
The kiddies and Rupert make sure Spike reaches his crypt before the sun rises. They forget or don’t care enough to realize he’s not able to reach his fridge for healing blood.
He’s been here before – beaten, broken, bruised, and bleeding. And alone… so it’s just another day. Nothing new, really.
A mass of pain, it’s difficult to isolate what hurts the most. Ribs, leg, and cheekbone feel like an unmade jigsaw puzzle, not to mention the knife wound that’s still oozing. He really could use that blood now.
And his heart breaks as the first day without her passes.
