SUMMARY: Xander Harris is dead. Drained by a vampire in the
Longview Cemetery. When his body is discovered

someone back in time to find out how he ended up there
and possibly save his life. Spike is reluctantly recruited.

1:00 pm Monday afternoon.
Xander Harris has 4 1/2 days left to live.

Spike woke with a start and bolted to an upright position
on the ratty, suspicious smelling plaid sofa. If it hadn't been
for the very distinct decor that surrounded him, he might have
dismissed the bizarreness of yesterday as too much drink or drugs.

God knows, the psychedelic sixty's had produced some really
wild days and nights of LSD trips that he and Dru had enjoyed
immensely once they got past the bitter taste of the hippies they were

Spike smiled at the memories of the good times while they lived on the
ranch in the California desert. Times that didn't last nearly long enough.
Just as they were settling in, that little bitch Charlie Manson had showed
up. Between the fact that Dru wanted to fuck him constantly and the
annoying tendency he had for attracting unwanted media attention,
Spike had had to knock her unconscious and drag her away in the
middle of the night.

She had moaned and cried for Charlie for weeks.
She always did go for the most disgusting species of demon.

Spike stretched and threw his legs over the side of the couch and
on to the cold hard floor. He glanced back toward the bedroom
and wondered if he should let the boy sleep or wake him up.

According to his calculations he had about 10 hours left before the
giant cosmic elastic waist band snapped him back to the underwear
of his own time and place where an impatient witch was waiting
for an answer that he really didn't have.

For all he knew there was no answer because, really, there was
no question. The boy couldn't sleep, he wandered out where he
shouldn't have and he became a giant twinky. A midnight snack
for a hungry beasty. Wasn't surprising. The boy looked delicious.
Spike took a minute to rub his palm over his cock. It twitched
in reaction.

Course that didn't explain the other. That was most unexpected.
Spike frowned. That still didn't answer the puzzle of why the

Spike jumped to his feet and eased silently to the bedroom door.
He wanted a peek. A quick look at the sleeping young man
who very shortly would be no more than worm food.
'Pity really.' He thought

He quietly pushed the door open just wide enough to stick his face in
and satisfy his curiosity. Focusing on the lump of blanket, he was
suddenly aware of the fact that there was no sound, no breathing, no
heart beat coming from the tiny, bleak room.

Marching in, Spike jerked back the cover to reveal an empty, cold bed.
The boy had apparently been gone for some time.

"You looking for me?"

Spike jumped, startled, and spun around to face a cheery, welcoming
grin and the smell of fresh, hot coffee.

"What's this then? Where did you go?"

Xander set the Styrofoam cups and the paper sack down on the small
kitchen counter.

"When I woke up this morning I felt great. I haven't slept that good in
weeks so I thought I'd run down to the Speedway and get some coffee
and donuts for us. Got you a bear claw. Get it? A little light humor
to start the day."

Spike sat down on one of the wooden chairs at the table and stuck
his face in the bag. He had to admit, it did smell like heaven. Not
that he would ever know what THAT smelled like.

"Yeah, some humor. Very little and very light. You get the coffee
black? Extra strong?"

Xander laughed.
"Figured that's what you would want."

Spike lifted his head and sniffed like a beagle searching for a bitch
in heat. He smelled something else. Something beyond the aroma
of freshly brewed coffee beans and over baked doughy delights.

"I smell the slayer on you. Is that where you went? You tell her I
was here with you?"

Xander pulled up his chair and sat down. He popped the plastic lid
off his cup and, like a magician, pulled a newspaper out of the seemingly
bottomless bag.

"Wow, are we a tad paranoid this morning? She came running in while
I was there and wanted a coffee and yogurt to go. I guess I smell like
her cause she hugged me before she dashed out. Yeah, I did mention
that you were bugging me last night."

Spike's eyes lit up with the memory and he laughed. He remembered
the conversation in the cellar. Was it yesterday? Last night? Next week?
Who knew.

At the time he would have bet all the money he didn't have that he hadn't
seen the boy in weeks, but he had. It was still confusing but Spike
thought that he just might be getting the hang of this Doctor Who stuff.

Xander smiled. He had never seen Spike really laugh. He had seen
him sneer, smirk, snicker and even snort but never this. Never an honest
open laugh. It was wonderful. It was gorgeous. It was infectious.
Although he had no idea what the joke was, Xander had to laugh with him.

Xander marveled at the strangeness that was his life. Just when everything
seems mundane, boring and sadly predictable, a certain vampire shows
up out of nowhere and spends the night.

He had been in such a terrible slump the last year or so. Things at home
had gotten intolerable, his friends lives had moved on without him and
he seemed to be running on a treadmill. Faster and faster and getting
nowhere. More than once he had thought of getting off.

He wanted to blame his lack of ability to hold down a job on the fact that
he spent half the night patrolling, or that the injuries from demon fighting
caused him to call off once too often, but the truth was he just didn't care.

He didn't care if there were enough Kotex stocked on the shelves, or there
was a customer blowing his horn waiting for his gas to be pumped.
He didn't care that the last showing at the theatre left tons of garbage
on the floors to be cleaned or that valet parkers are docked an hours pay
if they accidentally fart in a customers leather seat.
He just didn't care.

He wanted something new. Something that would pop up and just
surprise the hell out of him. He wanted...........this.

Tipping back on two legs of the chair, Xander propped his feet up on
the cheap wooden table. He sipped his coffee, sucked the jelly out of
his cream stick and turned the page of his paper.

"So what do you say we go down to Kwik Shake after dark for a burger
and fries then do a bit of patrolling?"

Spike dropped the racing section of the paper. He was deep in the thought
process of how to get the winners of the horse races so that the next time
he came back he could put a bob or two on the nose of the money maker.
Not that he planned on their being a next time, but if there was............

"What? Patrol? Um, yeah, sure, why not? So, what'cha reading?"

Xander scowled and began drawing circles over several different
items, drawing lines through others in a serious, studied way.

"Jobs. Much as I hate to, I'm going to have to find gainful employment
before the end of the month. Money doesn't grow on trees, ya know.
Although there is a minny wage one here for assistant tree trimmer."

Spike let one side of his mouth twitch up as he went back to the
list of nags in todays first race and wondered if Clem was still
working runner for the local bookie down at Willy's.

"Nay, it's too nice a day to think about getting a job. Sides, I
have a funny feeling you ain't gonna need it anyway. Nope,
today does not feel like a work day."

He shook out the page and resumed his studies.

Xander grinned, Spike was right. Today was for fun, relaxation,
and possibly a bit of adventure. Scrounging through the other
sections, he looked for the funny page and took another bite.

The Bee enjoyed vegas.

So Xander is so depessed that even the prospect of getting himself killed just doesn't bother him. Spike needs to figure this out before Xander gets himself killed.

I'm glad you had fun in Vegas. Put Spike and Xanders face on those Chippendale Dancers and it would be perfect a BeeSpander. :D
16th-Mar-2008 12:05 pm (UTC)
You know what? I thought about that. Manippers?

Xander's attitude is past boredont to defeat.
He just doesn't have a reason to go on. Maybe
he can find one.
16th-Mar-2008 12:12 pm (UTC)
*steps back, coughs politely, and straightens her clothes*
Erm, I mean, of course: Hi, Bee glad you're back! Mys missed the Buzzy One! Woohoo, looks like da Bee DID have fun in Vegas, lol.

Okay story-time, awwwwww *cuddles the Xander* poor thing well at least he's not in THE BASEMENT, and now he has a time traveling Spike to play with (*shakes head* as TW invades, yet again, lol) so all's good, lol.

And here, I'd been baking for angst! Lol. *wink* Well, we're fully stocked for when the angst returns- cookies, brownies (with and without icing- still no nuts), and caramel bars, I'm considering adding cheesecake to the menu- what d'ya think? Vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry?

Glad you had fun, sweets, but next time take Mys with you!!!!! Thurs and Friday blew massive amounts of moldy morbid monkey chunks and I didn't even have my Bee Boys to cheer me up, wah! 's okay, though as quick as things went to hells it turned around again- worst 24 hrs in months of months, followed by finding out Sweden FINALLY got AtS 5 (I get Spikey tomorrow!), the reincarnation of not one but two of my comms that recently died, my writer's block lifted for AF (I'm seriously considering fic-icide, lol), found new NB toys (I'll share later, needs some sussing before I spam your comments, lol), next week that ep of CM is on (so I no longer have to hide it from Pup, she gets so touchy about me watching eps before her, lol), then week after TW Exit Wounds, then Green River and BotH (although I doubt I'll be able to get my hands on those for a bit, but they'll be out!), then the new eps of CM with boy toy, I finally got Shadow Puppets burnt to DVD (now to just find time to watch it in peace), and I even managed to get a hold of GotR's "Mad Brilliant" (gods, what tripe, it's like the musical equivalent os schlock... Mys loves schlock, lol)! *squee* Yeah, oh and Fredrick's song won the Melody Festival (evil singer but Fredrick always writes such good shit it's about bloody time one of his songs made it).
Okay Mys is going to go take her meds 'cause she seems to be being very manic atm, but mayhaps she's just happy her Bee's back! *hugs*
16th-Mar-2008 12:28 pm (UTC)
The Mys has a Spander schedule all plotted out!
I bought Shadow Puppets as soon as it came out.
Spoiler - the plot is weak, the ending stupid but
hey, it's JM in his underwear. WORTH IT!!
This time I will be ready for CM!
You haven't seen Spike in season 5? All ghosty
and not on near enough? Let me know what you think.

OH, YEAH, the Bee had herself a time!
Glad to be home. I need the sleep.
Pack your bags and let me know when you want to go.
We would have a time.
16th-Mar-2008 12:36 pm (UTC)
Yeah, like I expect ANYTHING with either of our boys to have a plot- I watch for the eye-candy! I will say what I always say in these situations: PINATA- 'nough said, lol.
As for AtS, I HAVE seen S5, once, the first go 'round, but not since, I've been waiting and suffering through, gods, 3 consecutive airings of S4 and then the one and only bloody station that owns AtS doesn't even bother to announce it- and it's not like they don't know ppl are waiting for it, hells it's been the top question on their website for ages, lol. Gits!
Oh, a bit of useless information, if you ever want to get a Spikeys' attention in Sweden just tell them you know what happens in S5, lol.
16th-Mar-2008 12:50 pm (UTC)
Yay another chapter. Its sad how oblivious Buffy, Willow, and Giles are to Xander apparent depression. Hopefully Spike can find him a little happiness. And if that means Spander sex then by all means I'm all for it XD.
16th-Mar-2008 01:29 pm (UTC)
I'm sure Spike can force himself to do the generous thing
and give poor Xander a little bit 'o Spike.
It is just the perfect meds for depression.
16th-Mar-2008 01:41 pm (UTC)
Very nice chapter, and good to have you back!
16th-Mar-2008 02:21 pm (UTC)
Very glad to be back. I'm too old for that much fun.
16th-Mar-2008 01:42 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you're back. Glad you've enjoyed Vegas. I know I did when I got there even though some of the shows I wanted to watch got cancelled.

Anyway, onto the story.
I got to tell you, I love your comparisons and this? This was fantastic:
is friends lives had moved on without him and
he seemed to be running on a treadmill. Faster and faster and getting
nowhere. More than once he had thought of getting off.

Treadmill. Hm.
Things just get more and more exciting with this story somehow another.
Next chapter please.
16th-Mar-2008 02:23 pm (UTC)
Feels good to be home, sleeping and back in the RL.
I'm too old for this kind of shit.
Glad to be posting again.
16th-Mar-2008 03:01 pm (UTC)
You're back, it looks like you had a great time. Wonderful update - had to laugh at Spike getting the horse odd's in case he come back. Cindy Lee
16th-Mar-2008 03:05 pm (UTC)
Glad to be home. Spike has big plans for
the racing news. He is more interested in that
than in Xander at this point.
16th-Mar-2008 05:52 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad to see the Bee back!!! (and let me see, with those two hunks, I cleverly deduced that you had a great time)

And, as for the fic, Spike'll be Spike. Betting? Cheating at horse races by time!travel? Only him would think of it.

And, as for Xander, I so want to pet him... And sneak a grope (or a dozen).

Till tomorrow, then!!
16th-Mar-2008 06:01 pm (UTC)
The Bee had a great time but needed to come home.
You can only stand so much fun before you explode.

Things will start to heat up quickly now for our Spandery
Spike can always figure an angle to benefit him.
16th-Mar-2008 08:12 pm (UTC)
Glad to see Bee had a wonderful time in Las Vegas. And Xander is enjoying his time with Spike. And argh, we still don't know what Spike smelled on Xander.
16th-Mar-2008 08:18 pm (UTC)
That is something not explained till later.
Right now Spike needs to show Xander a little fun.
16th-Mar-2008 08:51 pm (UTC) - FB on 5 days more
So glad that the Bee had a wonderful time in Vegas. Nice looking eye candy you have draped around you. What does hubby think, or did he take the pic? Whatever, you look very happy. Which is good, a happy writer is a prolific writer. LOL.

So, Xander is feeling better having Spike around. The oblivious one, doesn't realise that yet. Horse races and time travel. Hmm, cheating is such a Spike thing.

However, if Xander begins to feel better then perhaps he won't get killed. Hmm. I can feel the angst coming. Must look for big umbrella.

Glad you're back.

16th-Mar-2008 09:13 pm (UTC) - Re: FB on 5 days more
I could say you will need the umbrella and the rubber boots
but that may give things away. Hubby was standing off to
the side laughing. Nothing I do suprises him anymore.
16th-Mar-2008 09:57 pm (UTC)
Thanks for another intriguing chapter. I think spike's idea of winning some money is very practical! Unless if takes away from xander duty. Could be spike just hanging around with xander doing some things xander suggests might just do him a world of good. Not that spike would intend that *lol*

Glad you enjoyed your special weekend! So you're all relaxed and happy and rearin' to write more ASAP ?
16th-Mar-2008 10:08 pm (UTC)
Oh, yeah, Baby all relaxed. Since this story will run for a while
I am on a writing break but a few new ideas are starting to
form and swim around.

At this point in the story Spike is still thinking of Spike
and how it will benefit him but that may soon change.
17th-Mar-2008 02:45 pm (UTC)
So not fair...Hot strong men...never fair;) I am uber glad you had a good time though,lucky duck. So tell me are they all hot and sweaty and hung?;) LOL!

Anywaaayyyy I am just now catching up on all my reading, and this was an awesome chapter. I love how the sparkle if you will came back into Xander's eyes the next it.

*heads off to read ch 10*
17th-Mar-2008 03:29 pm (UTC)
Although not sweaty, they were warm, smooth and smelled great.
If you noticed while they were feeling my boobs I was groping
an ass in each hand. Nice firm round asses. WONDEREFUL ASSES.
The Bee hangs her head in shame *snicker*

Oh, yes, the story.
Spike is a vampire with a plan and although he
starts out very selfish, who could resist Xander?
17th-Mar-2008 04:40 pm (UTC)
SOOO lucky:D

No one thats who;)
