Xander knew he had to do something.
Things could not be this way any longer, and if they did, he knew he would truly lose his mind. Plus…this really was for the better. The world would be a better place if he did this. Maybe his brain would calm down…and he could relax.
The sun just beginning to set, he set off across town, hoping he would make it in time. This didn’t happen every day, and with his luck, something strange would prevent him from doing what he had to do.
Wandering through a dark cemetery at night probably wasn’t the best idea…and yet, it had to be done.
He paused, just in front of the crypt, staring at the stake gripped in his hand. Silently, he pushed the door open.
“Can’t a man dress in peace?” he muttered, his thick accent filling the air. Xander threw the stake aside, and moved forward. “Are you on something, Harris? Did Red leave her herbs out near the cooking cabinet again?” Xander nibbled on his lower lip, pacing just inches in front of him. He glanced towards the door. “Do I need to make a quick exit?”
“I need to do this.” he muttered. “Have to do this.” The other man turned to run. Xander quickly blocked his path. “You’re not leaving.” The other man recoiled noticeably.
“Well, if it’s my time…” Spike slowly moved forward. Xander put a hand up, and slowly shook his head.
Then, as Spike quizzically tilted his head, Xander kissed him.
