'Xander turned the heavy stone over and over in his hand, the titanium chain spilling with tiny clinking sounds as it fell from palm to palm. His eyes absently watched the changing colours caused by the late afternoon sun, the drusy quartz pretty but not gaudy. He had bought it for what it represented rather than how it looked – unconditional love. It was supposed to be a welcome home present for Spike and he had even asked Willow to check that there was no adverse mojo on it and bless it as well. In light of what Angel had told him, it seemed paltry. How could a stupid gift from him even go a little towards making Spike feel better? The whole concept of Sires and childes possibly made more sense to him than to other people because of the whole hyena thing – he got the concept of pack, ownership and possession of a person.'
