Willow closed her eyes and leaned her head against Spike's shoulder, hoping the cell phone would stop ringing. She was glad when it finally stopped and she went to more pleasurable tasks of watching the candlelight flicker on his pale skin.

Spike checked the cell phone "Chubs, again."

"I don't want to talk to them."

"You need to talk them sometime, pet."

"How can I tell them what happened? 'Hi guys, I'm a vampire now?' They'll look disgusted right before they stake me."

"You are not a vampire."

"What do you mean? That vamp drained me and you gave me your blood making me a vampire."

Willow shivered thinking about that night. She had been walking home alone from a research meeting and was attacked by a group of vampires. One drained her to the point of death before Spike staked him and gave her his blood. When she woke up, she drank three bags of bittersweet pig's blood. She could understand his complaining about the taste now.

Spike sighed. He really didn't want to get into this, but it was looking like he would have to.

"You are not a vampire. You have a heart beat, a pulse and body warmth. You need to breathe too."

"You're right, but what am I?"

"A Nevel Falcon." He brushed aside her silky hair to look at the back of her neck. As he thought, on the nape of her neck was the black circle.

"A what? And why did Giles never tell us about them?"

"When most are turned, they become vampires like their Sire. However there are certain people are born a Nevel Falcon, but don't actually show signs until they are turned. The Watchers don't know because they pass as human."

Willow stared off into a crack in the wall before asking "Why did Buffy never sense me?"

"The full change didn't take place until I turned you, and Nevel Falcons feel the same as a human unless you know what one feels like. They occasionally need blood, like you did when you first woke up but mainly exist on normal human food."

"If I went over to Giles' would I feel like a human or something else to Buffy?" she asked.

"Human, the Slayer doesn't pay attention"

"I suppose I will have to go over there to get them off my back."
