A Matter Of Love, Friendship and Forgiveness

By RaeAngel

Piper Halliwell-Wyatt walked along the sidewalk outside her nightclub P3 toward the next building. She was inside the nightclub when she decided that she needed some air. She still couldn’t believe what had happened nearly three months ago. She, Phoebe and Paige are still Charmed and Piper is pregnant with hers and Leo’s child. She walked till she reached a nearby park. Piper found a bench and sat down. She took out a book and was about to start reading when she saw a young man with bleached blond hair sit down in a bench about ten feet away across from her. His face was buried in his hands and his shoulders were shaking. Piper realized immediately that the young man was crying. Poor guy. She thought in sympathy. Something must’ve made him that upset to make him cry like that. Piper got up from her bench and walked over to the other bench and sat down next to him and laid a hand on his shaking shoulder.

Spike sat down on a bench in a nearby park not caring who saw him. He buried his face in his hands and began to cry. He was crying so hard that he almost didn’t feel a hand touching his shoulder. Spike looked to see a woman sitting beside him. The woman looked somewhere in her twenties with long brown hair and eyes. She had a look of kindness and sympathy on her face. Several minutes went by before she spoke in a clear voice.

“Are you okay?” she asked in a concerned voice.

Spike shook his head before he began to cry once more. He could feel the woman’s arms wrap around him. That made him cry harder. He could hear the woman whispering words of comfort to his ear. He buried his face in the woman’s shoulder sobbing.

Piper held the young man tightly in her arms. She didn’t understand why he was upset or why she was comforting a stranger but she knew that she couldn’t stand seeing someone else in pain. She felt the young man burying his face deeper into her shoulder sobbing uncontrollably. His tears wetting her shirt. Twenty minutes went by before the young man stopped crying. He looked up at her.

“Thanks, pet. I needed that.” He spoke in an accent Piper recognized as a British accent.

She smiled at him. “Don’t mention it. I’m glad to help you…” Piper paused. “I’m sorry. I don’t know your name.”

“The name’s Spike. What’s yours?” Spike asked.

“Piper. My name’s Piper.” Piper replied. “Look, if you want to talk about what’s bothering you, you can. But you don’t have to. I mean it’s none of my business so I shouldn’t pry into your business.”

Spike paused before speaking. “It’s all right. I really don’t want to talk about it right now.” He didn’t understand why a stranger was so kind to him. But then again he didn’t understand anything about humanity at all. He saw Piper getting up from the bench.

“I have to go back to work.” She said.

“What do you do?” Spike asked curious.

“I own a nightclub called P3. It’s not far from here.” Piper explained. “You’re welcome to come with me if you want. Just to get your mind off of whatever’s bothering you.”

Spike considered it. “All right. I suppose a little fun would get my mind off of this thing that’s bothering me.” For a while anyway. Spike got up and followed Piper back to the nightclub.
