Ten : Xander's Death.

Ten : Xander's Death.

"Xander?" Willow stood in the cemetery, turning in a circle and called out again, "Xander!"

"What's up Wills?"

"It's Anya. She's dying."

"How?" he asked as they began walking.

"She said something about vengence and you."

"I didn't wish vengence on her Wills. I couldn't."

"I know. Do you know where Death is?"

"Somewhere nearby. Not sure exactly where though."

Willow nodded thoughtfully. "Come on. She's in Sunnydale General."

She was pale and thin, emaciated and wasting. Xander choked on his breath when he saw her. He stood beside her and gently held her hand, the one with fewer needles in it.

"I'm sorry Xander," she whispered.

He rubbed at the tears in his eyes and shook his head. "I didn't do this Ahn, I couldn't do this."

"I know. D'Hoffryn..."

"Your boss? Why?"

"He found out what happened between us and this was my punishment. He said..." she stopped to cough, a wet bark that caused blood to splatter the white sheets and her hand, "He said I wasn't worthy to be a demon for scorned women when I had so heartlessly scorned a good man like you."

"This isn't fair. Wills, can't we do anything?"

"It's too late love."

He turned to his girlfriend sitting at the head of the bed. "Dee, please?"

"I can't. It's too late. She has already begun to pass into the After. I came here for the woman three doors down or I'd have told you sooner. I didn't know. I'm sorry."

"Not your fault," Anya gasped. "Take care of him."

The high pitched whistle of the heart monitor drowned out her reply. "I do."
