“Hmm.” Buffy moaned trying to open her eyes. She tried to get up but an arm around her was stopping her from moving.
“Give me a few more minutes.” He mumbled into her shoulder, before realizing where he was. He moved his head to see his surroundings then lay back down.
“What time is it?”
Buffy stretched to see the clock. “Just after six…I think.”
She turned so she was facing him. “Where’s Spike?”
“He thought you had went to Angel’s so he went there. I phoned explaining everything after you fell asleep and he said he’d be back tonight as soon as he could.”
“She knows your okay and wants to see you as soon as she can.” He rubbed his face.
“Thank you,” she looked up at him. “If you hadn’t turned up, I don’t know what would have happened.”
He moved her hair so he could see the bite mark and smiled. “You weren’t joking when you said you healed quick were you?”
“Slayer healing,” she yawned. “I need some more sleep before I have to face everyone…”
“Well, I‘ll make some breakfast then.” He got up and left her to rest.

“So who is this Bobby anyway?” Angel turned to the other vampire who was driving.
“He’s Alex’s partner in the cop shop,” Spike shrugged. “Apart from that and the fact that he’s a big bastard I don’t know much about him.”
“Well Buffy seems to trust him.” Angel sighed.
“Doesn’t say much Peaches she trusts us as well.”
He heard the older vampire sigh.
“Last time I was here was just before I moved to Sunnydale and Buffy,” Angel answered. “It brings a lot back.”
“I get that.” He nodded as his cell rang
“Answer that will you?” he fished it out and handed it to Angel. “Wish Blondie had never got me the thing.”
“Hey its Buffy.” She was surprised to hear his voice.
“Are you okay?”
“Yeah, I guess I healed in more ways than one.”
“Yeah,“ she replied after a few minutes of silence. “It was just to say we are going be at Alex’s. Spike knows where it is.”
“Okay we’ll be there as quick as.” He said goodbye and shut off the phone.
“We’ve to met them at her Aunt’s.”

“Maybe this is a bad idea.” Buffy stopped just outside the door.
“She needs to know your okay.” He pushed her into the building not taking no for an answer.
“Big stupid guy.” She grumbled.
“Stupid little woman.” He shot back as they walked in.
She grinned to herself as she knocked the door. She had really got him wrong when she first met him. He was a cool guy.
She heard Alex running and opening in.
“Buffy!” she sobbed before pulling her into a hug, causing the younger woman’s tears to fall again.
“Let’s take this inside.” Bobby ushered them in shutting the door behind him as the two women walked to the couch.
“I’m so sorry,” Buffy sniffed as they sat down. “I wasn’t sure if I could ever stop..”
“S’okay it’s your way of dealing. I know you didn’t mean it. I was so worried about you,” she checked her over. “What happened?” she noticed the bruises.
“Well I was attacked then my hero came and saved me.” She smiled over at Bobby.
“But your okay though?” she asked.
“Yeah…that will be Spike and Angel.” She answered as the door bell rang.
Bobby answered it and was almost knocked off his feet as the blonde vampire rushed past him.
“Buf, your okay?” Spike grabbed her and twirled her around.
“I’m fine honest.” She smiled into his shoulder before he let her down.
“Angel.” She looked over.
“I’m thinking maybe we should go back to Sunnydale now,” she looked at Spike. “I’ve been gone longer than I said I would.”
“Yeah plus Red and the Whelp are frantic about you,” Spike kept his arm around her. “Well my bags are in the car so I’ll wait on you packing sweetheart.”
“Not a problem some ass took my bag the other night,” she looked at Bobby. “But I want to talk to Lurch in private.”
“I’ll help you down with her coat.” Alex walked out behind the others leaving Bobby and Buffy alone.
“Thank you for everything. You didn’t have to do that even though I was being a total bitch to you.” She walked over.
“It‘s okay, kind of my job.” He smiled.
She pulled him down to her level and kissed him on the cheek. “Still, thank you.”
He couldn’t do anything but nod.
She walked to the door. “Bye big stupid guy.” She left a parting shot as she walked out.
