My Immortal"

my immortal

i'm so tired of being here

suppressed by all of my childish fears

and if you have to leave

i wish that you would just leave

because your presence still lingers here

and it won't leave me alone

these wounds won't seem to heal

this pain is just too real

there's just too much that time cannot erase

when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears

when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears

and i've held your hand through all of these years

but you still have all of me

you used to captivate me

by your resonating light

but now i'm bound by the life you left behind

your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams

your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

these wounds won't seem to heal

this pain is just too real

there's just too much that time cannot erase

when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears

when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears

and i've held your hand through all of these years

but you still have all of me

i've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone

and though you're still with me

i've been alone all along ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Spike blinked again."Luv.I hear your heartbeat. Even though there's a steak knife right into it.I still hear it." His body shook.

Eliza flinched. "Yeah, hurt like a bitch too."

Spike sat there as he stared into her once again vibrant eyes. "I don't understand.Even though I'm bloody thankful. I don't understand."

Eliza brought up a shaky hand and grabbed the rubber grip on the knife. She gritted her teeth as she pulled it out. A small moan escaped her lips. She sat up a little more. "I don't understand most of it either. But from what I do understand, I can't die."

Spike tilted his head and spoke softly. "How do you know? I mean besides the obvious." He shrugged.

A tear peeked out from one of Eliza's bright green eyes. "She-She told me."

"Who?" His voice was gentle, like he was talking to a lost child.

"Buffy.She said I would last forever."

Spike sat up straight as the name of his last love was spoken. He chuckled, to Eliza's amazement. "Yeh, she was always the bringer of bad news."

"No that was Giles."

He raised an eyebrow. "How do you know about Giles."

"I don't know. I guess I was filled with some of her memories also. It's just so confusing right now." The tears started to flow. Spike reached a hand to her porcelain face and wiped it away.

He shushed her small cries she was fighting to keep away. "We don't have to talk about this now."

She stood up which Spike tried to prevent her from doing.But it seemed she was filled with so much energy now.

"What else is there to talk about?"

"Tell me about when you were alive."

Eliza laughed a little. "I was basically the weirdo of the school."

"You?" He snorted sarcastically. "Nooooo." He pulled himself off of the ground and sat at a barstool.

"Shut up. You wanna hear the stories of my uneventful life or not?" She shot right back.

"Oh please miss." He put a finger up to his chin. "I think miss. Thang is what you young kids these days call it?"

Eliza dismissed the smart ass remark and continued. "Yeah well I was always stronger then all of the guys, and they didn't like that. I guess they didn't like the feeling of being dominated or whatever."

"Imagine that.I always like a good spankin'" He winked.

"Yeh well a freak like you would." Eliza said.

She yawned and rubbed her eyes, showing her innocence. Spike just had to laugh at that. "Come on luv, lets go to bed."

"Is that an invite Mr. Spike?"

"You wish. Let's go." He said starting upstairs to the bedroom.

She followed up the stairs slowly. She was enjoying every minute of being alive, feeling of belonging.

As they lay in bed, she tossed and turned while Spike was out like a light. After about an hour of her thinking about her life, all the things she was leaving behind and all the things that were about to come, Spike started moaning. It wasn't an erotic type of moan, it was more of a scared type of moan.


(Spike's Nightmare)

Buffy was right in front of him, only she wasn't Buffy, she was a vampire. "Come on Spike, join me.Join me into the night. I now know the feeling. And I can't believe I tried to fight this." She raised her arms and did a little spin. "It's quite comfy in the dark, I suggest you come back to it." She said matter-of-factly.

"Spike don't." A voice came out of the dark, Eliza walked out of the shadows. The light played across her face. A fierce look was in her eyes when she looked at Buffy, but when she looked at him her features softened. "It isn't Buffy anymore. It's not really her."

Spike looked back and forth at the two. His eyes met Buffy's. They weren't as he remembered. There was a certain darkness dwelling behind her bright colors. "No." He said to her.

Buffy growled and it was like she disappeared and reappeared behind Eliza, grabbing her by the throat. "No!" He screamed

Buffy smiled evilly. "Join me Spike. Join me or she dies!"

"No no no no no no!" He screamed coming after her.

Eliza smiled inside. "Forever" She whispered.

Buffy snapped the young slayer's throat. "No. Not forever. I decide how long forever lasts."

Spike's heart sank when he realized that Eliza wasn't moving. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eliza crawled out of bed. Now Spike was screaming. She snuck into his bed and started rubbing his back. "Shhh my love. It's okay. No more fears."

She started humming a lullaby that her mother used to sing to her. It seemed to calm him a little. She scooted closer to his ear and hummed a little louder. Now Spike was calm.


Spike awoke at the telephone. "Bloody hell! Damn that god forsaken phone!"

He reached for it and picked it up.


"Spike don't get that tone with me." Darcy's voice was on the other line. "I have to talk to you. I've been reading and it seems as if Eliza is very special."

"Yeh yeh, she can't die, we know this already."

"Yes she can Spike.But only one can kill her."

Spike paused."Buffy."

"Yes. Only the strongest, keenest, and greatest slayer in all time. It seems as if there are a group of demons who are planning to bring her back. The Slayers are going to fight, only Buffy wont be Buffy."

"She'll be evil."

"Right again. Only by her hand the blood will spill and no more slayers can be brought on this earth. We don't know when, we don't know where, we just know that when it comes, if the girl shall die and Buffy live.Well lets just say, evil wins."

"Good lord." Spike said low. "I've got to talk to her."

"No I don't know if she should know of this just yet. Until we have all the details."

"She needs to know!"

"Spike-" Darcy started.

"I know what she needs. She doesn't need some prissy watcher babying her all the time. She needs to know."

"Well if you think it's right."

"And I do."

"Well then I bid you good day. I suggest you train her today."

"I will. Goodbye Darcy."

"I love you William."

"I love you as well." He hung up the phone and looked around, he couldn't see Eliza anywhere.

"What was that about?" A small fragile voice from behind startled him. Spike jumped.

"Love we need to talk." He said gently.

She nodded as Spike told her what was said on the phone.

"I had a dream about it." She stated, it seemed as if this news didn't phase her at all.

"So did I."

"I know. You were crying out in your sleep. I had to sing to you to get you to calm down."

"I was wondering how you got up here." Spike smiled.

A pause came between the both of them, finally Eliza spoke up.

"Do you think I'll win?"
