A/N: Written for the kissing meme at btvs_hp. This is my first time writing this pairing, takes place sometime after Buffy burned the gym down and after Draco got the dark mark. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
She turned her face upwards to the moon letting the cool night air caress her skin and a single tear fell from her lashes traveling down her cheek glistening brightly like a beckon in the night. Arms slipped around her waist and she felt herself be drawn back into a warm body his breath dancing across the nape of her neck as he whispered to her.
"I love you, I don't think I've ever really loved anyone before but I love you."
Buffy closed her eyes tightly against the tears her voice broken as she whispered back "I know."
She turned in his arms eyes searching his remebering all that he was and her hand came up to trace his jawline fingers caressing his lips. "This isn't fair." she muttered bitterly.
Her anguish was reflected in his eyes and Draco Malfoy smirked painfully "I know." His arms tightened around her and he leaned down to press a hard kiss to her lips as time ran out and all that they would have left was this brief passsion.
He thought he could get away from it all, thought he could run from the war, from his family, from HIM
and he had ran all the way to the City of Angels in America and had found her. Bloody and beautiful a true warrior like no other and for awhile he had fought beside her fooling himself into believing that he could be just as noble.
But their time was up and the mark was burning on his arm a stark reminder of what he could not leave behind and she was leaving in the morning with her mother in a moving van to a life that would grant her normal.
She returned the kiss just as desperately and as they drew apart panting she told him flat out "Don't die."
He smiled and pressed one last kiss to her lips this one soft and filled with sorrow then he was gone and Buffy was alone.
