Time: Season 6
Spoiler: to Season 6
I Think I Love you
Bufffy was standing outside of Spike's Crypt. She came here after she had confessed to Tara, that
she had slept with Spike. The Question that Tara asked her was still echoing through her head.
"Do you love him?"
She came close to an answer as she possible could at this moment and it scared her. She was
standing there for at least five minutes, before she took a deep breath and the courage to open the
door to the Crypt.
"So, you decided to come in after all." Spike said with cockiness in his voice. He was watching tv
and didn't even look up from it.
"Yeah." Buffy responded and she walked further into the Crypt closer to Spike. She stopped at five
feet away from the bleached vampire. Spike was still ignoring her. "I told Tara about us."
This got the attention of the chipped vampire. He cocked his head toward Buffy with mixed
emotions on his face. On one hand he was glad that it was out or at least with another person, but on
the other hand he was afraid that Tara would disapprove and tell Buffy to stay away from him.
Buffy saw the emotion play on Spike's face and inwardly smiled wary at it.
"She asked if I love you." Buffy said with not much emotions in her voice.
Spike waited for a few more moments and was almost afraid to ask her the next question.
"What did you tell her?"
"I didn't had an answer for her."
Spike waited again. "And do you have an answer for me?" He knew that it would kill him if she
said 'no' now. But he needed to know.
Buffy looked down, took a big breath and looked up again. Spike didn't like what he saw. He saw
pity and sorrow in those eyes. He almost wanted to run away, but he couldn't move.
"I think I'm falling in love with you."
At the first moment he couldn't believe, what she told him. It took a moments to sink in and a
satisfied smirk appeared on the corners of his mouth. It was a smirk of victory of a predator that
caught his prey.
"Well, well, Luv. I knew you would fall for my charms eventually."
Buffy rolled her eyes at that statement. It was typical something Spike would say. Spike stood up
and stood cool and cocky in front of Buffy with a satisfied smile plastered on his face. Her face
saddened a little.
"I'm sorry." Buffy said with genuine remorse in her voice.
Spike looked confused and with compassion. "For what, Pet?"
Spike stretched his arm out to touch Buffy's cheek. Before he could touch her, he felt a pain sting in
his chest. He looked down and saw that Buffy had put a stake in his heart. He crumbled to dust
before he even could ask why. Buffy nevertheless answered.
"I couldn't take the chance to fall completely for you and have to stake you later."
Buffy turned around and left the Crypt with a heavy and sorrow heart.
A/N: I didn't kill Spike because I hated him. I like the character. But he was a Vampire and Evil. It
didn't matter how much he loved Buffy in the end he would have done something that would have
made Buffy stake him. And that's why she staked him, because she knew that it would be too hard
for her to kill him when she was throughly in love with him.
