Epilogue

Buffy and Spike pulled up in front of Conner's house.  They were going horse back riding with Dawn and Conner.

It was the end of the summer, almost time for college.  Buffy was going to Columbia with the girls, and Spike applied so he could be with Buffy.

Conner and Dawn were still together.  Conner was still friends with Jesse.  Dawn had dumped Cordelia and Harmony, and now had a new group of friends.

They met Conner and Dawn at the front of the house.  They walked to the stables together, discussing college and friends.

Xander and Anya were still together.  Their relationship had been rocky at times, but they eventually worked out their problems.  Anya was going to attend Columbia.  She and Xander were going to rent an apartment so she could attend college and he could work.

Willow and Oz began dating shortly after Prom.  They broke up once in the middle of the summer, due to a girl who was a singer for a rival band.  They solved their problems also, and got back together.  Willow and Oz were both going to attend Columbia.

Jesse and Fred started dating shortly after Prom, also.  They are still dating.  Fred is also attending Columbia, and Jesse will be going to a community college near the area.

Amy and Tara are still together.  They will be attending Columbia also.

Angel got fired from his modeling job the day after Prom due to the fact that his nose was purple.  He is still pursuing modeling jobs.

Buffy sat in front of Spike on the horse.  They rode along slow, stopping to watch the sunset.

"So, you ready for college?" Spike asked.

"Yep.  It's gonna be so much fun.  I'm glad you're gonna be there."

"Well, I couldn't stand to be away from you that long."

"I know."

Buffy turned her head towards Spike and kissed him.

"I love you."  Spike said, after he pulled away.

Buffy looked at him, shocked.

"Really?"

"Yeah."

"I love you too." she said, pulling him in for another kiss.
