So, I was going over what had happened all through my head. Thoroughly couldn't believe what I was seeing. Actually, it was the only thing I was seeing. It was everything I'd been seeing for the past few hours. It wasn't even an it. It was a he. He was Spike.
And he was staring back at me, for real.
Now that, that was something that I didn't wager to ever come true. Ever. Spike was standing in front of me, and a few hours ago I was kissed by him. It was overwhelming, but it was a good kind of overwhelming. Like the kind you get when so many good things happen to you, and it's hard to even breathe. That's what I was feeling, but I think because I was a slayer, maybe I was feeling it at a higher level, but..
Okay, so I was rambling in my head. My mind was racing, and not even making sense. And yet.... I was still smiling. I couldn't seem to take it off my face, like I couldn't take my eyes off of him.
It was like he popped up, literally, behind me, and then next thing I knew, I was kissing him....or rather, he was kissing me, while I stood there in shock, but still. Then, he was eating chicken wings. Then, we were here, in the hotel. And the funny thing was, that no one else saw him. So it was still possible that I was being an idiot and dreaming. It was possible, but not probable, because, as bad as it sounds, I hadn't thought about him for maybe a month.
Yes, herego guilt trip.
So many things had happened, and especially since we came here, working under Wolfram and Hart. It was a confusing mess. Especially the part where Wolfram and Hart were evil, while we were cleaning up their mess? Maybe. Hey, that's what it felt like half the time. And Angel knew my animosity. But then, Bam! Spike. SPIKE.
I saw him die.
So he gave me the lowdown. Naturally, Wolfram and Hart were the center of this. I didn't understand half of it. All I basically got was, Spike, here. Angel knew. Angel CEO of lawfirm that funded the coming back. In Ghostly form?
So here we were. In my room. In the hotel. I couldn't begin to describe my feelings toward this situation. I didn't know them myself. But there was one thing that I did know.
Was that smile wasn't going anywhere for a really long while.
((Open to Spike.))
