Author: baudown

Pairing: Spike/Xander

Disclaimer:  Don't own them or make a profit

Written For:  open_on_sunday

Prompt: Cook

Word Count: 100

"What're you doing?" Xander asks.

"What's it look like, pillock?" Spike sniffs.  "Making beans on toast."

"Yeah, food.  People-food.  So what for?"

For you, comes the thought, an unwelcome burst of awareness.  Spike grips the counter, staggered by the sudden prospect of longing, and certain disappointment.

"Since when do you cook?" Xander continues, failing to notice anything amiss.

Since you trusted me enough to stop tying me up.

Since I realized that stupid means stupidly brave.

Since the night I dreamed of kissing you.

"Can I have some?"  Xander asks.

"Yeah," Spike answers, helpless, resigned.  "Just take whatever you want."

OUTCH!!! Xander, you bloody ... !!!!!! *headdesk*
Poor Spike! Always love's bitch, right? *sigh*
Love the voice of Spike's thoughts and his reactions to it. You got it very well.
And Xander's blindness? Oh, boy! :D

It always takes him by surprise, and with a wallop!

Thank you!

Spike making his oblivious boy beans on toast. Ever the romantic, our vampire! *g*

I figured he could manage beans on toast!

'Just take whatever you want.'

Clever and lovely as always.:D I so enjoy your writing.

And as always, thank you.

Awwwww.... This kinda breaks my heart. Spike's answer... oh. Poor thing.

He gets sucker-punched by love every time. And it always breaks my heart.

"Just take whatever you want."

You're killing me; I am dead.

I will resurrect you with the laying on of (imaginary) hands.

This sounds just about right. Give him another ten or so years Spike, I'm sure he'll figure it out.

Unless, of course, Xander stumbles across Spike's Xander-shrine first.


Oops! That reply was from me.

His obliviousness is part of his charm. Kinda.

Thank you!
