"He's evil." she states firmly, and the blonde's eyes softened. "I could never have feelings for him." "I'm sorry, Wills." Buffy consoles her softly, sadness building inside of her.

"I don't love him," She repeats, her voice wavering, and as massive tears form in her eyes, they both pretend not to know she is lying.
