SUMMARY: This story is a follow-up to
"What Happens In Vegas"
The newly mated couple decide
to take a little holiday.
Xander's eyes were big as saucers. His smile bright
as the sun Spike was no longer privy to see.
His entire body vibrated with the joy and excitement
of the mysteries of the desert.
"We're here Spike! We really are here!"
Xander threw his arms around Spikes shoulders.
He gave the vampire a tight hug, and a deep kiss.
With no further comment or conversation, Xander turned
and took off running into the moonlit expanse ahead of him.
The thoughts and emotions flooding from Xander were
so jumbled and overwhelming, Spike was temporarily
Slapping his hands over his ears to try to stifle the mental
chaos shooting unchecked from his consort, Spike
squeezed his eyes shut and fell to his knees.
After a few minutes he was able to block the images that
were weakening as the distance between them grew.
Pulling himself to his feet Spike strained to see where
Xander had gone.
Thankfully the landscape was flat and the moon was full
offering a surprising amount of light that combined with
Spike's enhanced vision allowed him to catch sight of
Xander as he leaped over a sand mound into a crevass
and out of sight.
Spike took off at a dead (of course) run.
Switching to his vampire visage to enhance his speed, sense
of smell and ability to see, Spike tried desperately to follow
the path his consort had taken.
He was amazed at the distance Xander, a puny human,
Recognizing the upcoming sand cliff as the one he had
seen Xander leap into Spike flung out his arms allowing his
trademark black coat to billow around him dramatically.
Flying into the air, Spike landed face first with a "whomp!"
The sand dune was less than five feet high.
Xander was sitting cross legged behind it waiting patiently.
"Hey, Spike, there you are. What do you think? Good
How long do you think it will take for them to come?
Do you think they will come close enough to get a picture?"
Spike rolled over spitting sand.
His first urge was to spew forth an unchecked stream of
insults and obscenities, and if this had been anyone else
he would already be on his third "Ignorant motherfucker".
But this was his Xander. His Consort, and knowing Xander
was in for one of the biggest disappointments of his young
life, Spike just could not hurt him further.
"Yea, looks like a good spot, Love, but you know they don't
come every night. Maybe we missed them.
Why don't we go find a room in town and tomorrow soon
as the sun goes down we can do the museums and gift shops."
"So what are you saying Spike? Cause I thought you
wanted to be here too."
Scooting over to sit next to his pet, Spike put his arm
around Xander's shoulders.
"I do, Xan. Can't think of anywhere I would rather be than
sitting here with my favorite guy."
Xander squinted at him suspiciously.
'Only one way to really know' He thought.
Slipping on his mental moccasins, Xander decided to
take a stroll through the complex junk yard that was
Xander leaped to his feet and faced off with his vamp.
"What? Hey, stop that! Somethings are just private, Boy!"
Spike also stood and, with his hands on his hips,
held his ground.
"Let me tell you something, smartassvamp. There is
scientific evidence to prove the aliens come here. And
this is NOT as you so eloquently thought it, as pointless
as a vampire with life insurance."
Xander turned his back to Spike and with a huff crossed his
arms over his chest.
Then as an after thought tossed over his shoulder,
"And by the way, FUCK YOU!"
Now outraged Spike stomped his Doc Martin in the sand
causing a dusty cloud to puff up around his legs.
"Fuck me? Seems last night you were begging me to fuck
you, you ungrateful brat. Brought you here without
complaint didn't I?
Did all this just for you. Just cause I don't believe in them
doesn't mean I don't believe in you, you shithead."
Xander was dumbstruck. Whirling back he faced Spike with
tears in his eyes
"Oh God, Spike. That was the sweetest thing any one
has ever said to me. I am so sorry. I love you!"
Xander threw his arms around his master vampire and held
him close. Pulling back only marginally he dove in for a
deep plunging kiss.
Spike humbly accepted the apology while trying frantically
to remember what he had just said in the hope to save
and use it again in the near future.
Clutching and groping at each other in the dark cool desert
Xander and Spike were both too engrossed in each other
to notice the huge air ship silently approaching from behind.
