Xander was hanging out in the hallway of Sunnydale High with his friends; Willow, Buffy, Oz and Riley. Another boring Monday, the only good thing about it was science class because he was partnered with the hottest guy in school, William ‘Spike’ Giles. Everyone had a crush on the guy even though no one really knew much about him.
Spike seemed to be a loner and liked it just fine. He wasn’t a jock, a nerd or a bully and he wasn’t in band. He was just there, but Spike was seemed like a nice guy he’d small talk with Xander and would even acknowledge him in the hall.
Xander noticed the dark circles under Buffy’s eyes, “What’s up, Buff? Stay up all night watching some girly movie?”
“No,” Buffy replied with a yawn. “I’ve been having some bad dreams the last couple nights. I can’t seem to shake them.”
“Me too,” Willow spoke up. “They’ve been really freaky.”
Oz wrapped an arm around her shoulders giving her a little squeeze but nodded his head in agreement.
“Not just me then?” Xander asked. He couldn’t help but be relieved, even though the fact that they were all having nightmares every night caused some concern.
“I haven’t had any,” Riley replied before kissing Buffy’s neck making her giggle.
“Don’t look now but Spike is coming this way,” Willow informed Xander with a sly smile.
Buffy grinned and poked Xander in the side, “It’s your boyfriend!”
“Shut up,” Xander hissed. “He isn’t my boyfriend,” he pouted. When Spike was close enough Xander plastered on a smile, “Morning, Spike!”
“Bugger off,” Spike growled as he stormed past the group of friends. He didn’t notice the hurt look on Xander’s face and if he had he probably wouldn’t have cared too much at the moment. There were bigger things to worry about than hurt feelings.
Buffy glared at Spike’s departing back, “Wow, rude much!”
“Well, can you blame him?” Cordelia Chase came up to them flipping her hair. “Xander is a loser, while Spike is the most popular guy in school! Of course he wouldn’t want to be seen with him.”
“Oh and I guess he’d want to be seen with you?” Buffy placed his hands on her hips.
Cordelia shrugged, “I’m sure he wouldn’t mind having the girl that is going to be in a commercial for the new salon that is opening up next month on his arm.”
“Right, I’m sure he wants to be seen with a superficial bitch,” Buffy replied her eyes narrowed.
“I’m superficial? I’m not the only one on a low carb diet. Which by the way, so isn’t working for you,” Without another word Cordelia stormed off.
Willow shook her head, “I heard her dad had to pay the owner of the place to get them to use her.”
“Maybe she won’t be that bad?” Oz offered always trying to see the good in people.
“I highly doubt that,” Xander replied just before the bell rang. “Got to jet, time for science!” And he dashed down the hall.
Spike was already in his seat when Xander walked into the room. Taking a deep breath he made his way over to the table he shared with Spike placing his books on it before sitting down. He refused to look at Spike not wanting to be caught and yelled at again.
Blue eyes looked over at Xander and saw his dejected demeanour and Spike couldn’t help but feel bad. He actually really liked Xander and he was happy that he had him as his partner. Sighing Spike turned to face Xander who was pretending to read some of the notes he taken the previous Friday.
“Look. Xander,” Spike leaned in close. “Sorry about earlier. I haven’t been having the best night’s sleeps.”
Xander’s head snapped up looking at Spike with huge hazel eyes, “You’ve been having nightmares, too?”
“What do you mean too?” Spike demanded he wasn’t the only one dreaming of this man?
“Me, Buffy, Willow, and Oz have all been having nightmares the last couple nights.” Xander explained and worried his lip. “We didn’t really get into it.”
Spike nodded and turned his attention to the front of the room when Mr. Lambert walked in. Throughout the class Spike didn’t hear a single thing the teacher said, his focus completely on the man from his dreams. He’d have to talk to Xander about what his nightmares were about.
