Thanks to: Everybody who's still reading and commenting, despite my breaks between chapters. I love you guys.
Feedback: makes my heart overflow, just like the hot chocolate machine.

Author's note, take two: The overflow thing actually happened at work tonight, only it was Rain-chan's fault, and it was the raspberry flavor shot that was overflowing. Raspberry flavoring stains badly, and it is very fragrant, and we lost about a large cup full of the stuff, which is a lot considering. My hands are stained red and smell like raspberries.
Really Lame Summary of the story so far: Everybody is human. Spike is a published poet who works by day at Barnes and Noble, and Xander is a college student who works tech on a stage and whose mysterious past is starting to crop back up. They've been together for a while now, but Spike's ex, Oz, has come back into town and is willing to do anything to get Spike back. Spike's not interested, but Oz isn't about to take no for an answer...
