Chapter 10



The next day she felt a little bit better. It felt good to be able to vent; she felt a lot lighter, like she had less to carry. She had no idea if they would ever see each other again, and if they did what would happen. She just tried to push it out of her mind.

It was a rainy day with thick dark clouds with thick fog. She just sat on the ledge of the window. Watching the angels' tears roll down the window. 'I know how you feel' she thought to herself. She felt like time had stopped and she hadn't stopped with it. The only thing that she didn't know was that time had sped up for someone on the road and was coming right for her.

He couldn't stop thinking. The thoughts just kept coming and coming. His life was flashing before his eyes, only his life wasn't ending, it was only beginning.

He had no idea what he was going to say to her when he saw her. He didn't know how she would react or what to expect. He just needed to see her.

****

Tara was standing there unknown to Buffy. She was watching her, trying to figure out what she was thinking and feeling. She knew everything would work itself out; life had a way of doing that.

"What are you watching?" Tara finally asked.

"I didn't see you standing there. I'm just watching the rain. You know, I never thanked you and Willow for house sitting. How long have you been standing there?"

"Oh, not very long. Don't worry about it; it wasn't a problem at all. I was just watching you watching something and I started to space out."

Buffy just smiled and nodded.

"You shouldn't worry yourself about it so much. It'll work itself out, it always does. I know it doesn't seem like it, and you probably don't want to hear it, but it will get easier. I promise." Tara said.

"I know it, but I don't feel it. I'll just have to wait it out." Buffy replied.

Tara just smiled, kissed her on the top of her head and walked away. She knew what Buffy was going to get and it was right around the corner.

In a little while he would soon be at her house, on the beach where they first met. The thought of her always brought him back to this place.

He smiled.

He was in love with her and she needed to know that.

Before he knew it he was pulling into the driveway. He grabbed the box, stepped out of the car and began to walk towards the house. "Deep breaths, deep breaths." He told himself, and he rang the doorbell.

****

Buffy heard the doorbell ring and walked to the door. As she walked closer her heart began to jump. When she opened the door she sucked in a deep breath. In front of her stood a soaking wet Spike. His hair was matted down from the rain and his clothes were damp.

"What are you-you're supposed to be-how did you?" Buffy couldn't speak.

"I finally came to the point where I had to make a decision. You or her, and I chose you. You're all that I want and need." Spike said.

He stepped into the house and kissed a now grinning and crying Buffy.

He began to kneel.

"Buffy Summers, I love you more than life itself. Will you marry me?" He asked, pulling out a small white velvet box which contained a diamond ring.

Buffy's eyes began to grow with a fresh set of tears.

"Of course I will, I love you too!" Buffy said while jumping into his arms and being embraced by a tight hug.

Around the corner, Tara and Willow were hugging and crying. It was like a movie, every thing had worked itself out and they lived happily ever after.

Love took me by the hand Love took me by surprise Love led me to you And opened up my eyes

And I was drifting away Like a drop in the ocean And now I realize that Nothing has been as beautiful As when I was heaven skies In your eyes
