~ Song Lyrics ~

~ You keep saying you got something for me

something you call love, but I call it sex

you've been kissing when you oughta be

screwing now someone else can kiss your ass

these boots are made for walking

that's just what they'll do

one of these days these boots

are going to walk all over you ~

Spike was following the time honored tradition of getting so drunk he couldn't see straight after getting dumped by Xander when the brunette had walked in on him and Willow fucking. He had been called an undead bastard and thrown out into the sunlight; smoking the whole way back to his crypt. He wondered what Xander did with Willow after he left and snorted. Probably comforting her after being "raped" by the undead evil guy.

He couldn't remember the evening clearly, but he thought he remembered a spell in there somewhere. Oh sure, she casts a spell on him, but he gets blamed. Even when everyone knows how unpredictable her magic is. Slayer engagement ring a bell?

Xander didn't believe him the next day when he tried to tell him it was Willow's fault. Accused him of trying to switch the responsibility onto the innocent person. Innocent his ass, she caused it. He was the innocent one. But with his reputation and everyone believing she was the pure as snow, shy sweetie that didn't have an evil thought in her head, no one would believe that she had done something like this.

He swears to himself that he will never fall in love again. It only hurts, and there is nothing worth the pain.
