BtVS – Season 5 – Post The Gift – Spike
From the Heart
The harsh light of day kept Spike from her funeral. Her friends weren’t about to make it vampire friendly – not for strays, and certainly not for him.
He had to find some way to pay his respects. No dosh for flowers, and she was beyond appreciating them anyway. All he had to give was himself, even if it wasn’t good enough for the likes of her.
Hours spent alone in his crypt, attempting to create a bit of prose to do the woman justice, afraid he’d fall short once more.
But he’d give it his all, as his heart spoke.
