Maybe Love Is Enough

Author: Pumpkin Belly

Summary: Sometimes love isn't enough, but then again sometimes it is.

Pairing: Dawn/Andrew

A/N: Ok everything that has happened in the series has happened. Dawn and Andrew are in Rome. They've been there for a while and have been a couple for a while too. The song is Back to California by Sugarcult.

"Andrew!" Dawn called, tears coming gathering in her eyes, "Why?"

How Long I'll wait to say goodbye

10 different ways to enjoy this night

Can't do this anymore

Won't feel you anymore

"You had to know that it was coming." The once shy boy answered, "We're too different now. You're going to college and what am I doing? Nothing."

"That's not true." Dawn interrupted

"Yes it is and you know it." He said looking her in the eyes, "It is Dawnie."

How long I'll wait to say goodbye

You could never let me in

Holding on until the end

The time I waste to say goodbye

"So," she exclaimed throwing her hands in the air, "just because I'm going to college and you aren't doesn't mean you have to leave. Don't you love me?" The tears were now flowing down her face.

"You know I do." Andrew said firmly.

"Then why are you leaving?" Dawn yelled.

Out of your way I could do this right

Can't see you anymore

Won't feel you anymore

How long I'll stay just to say goodbye

"Dawn," Andrew sighed, "I can't stay here. I do love you; I love you so much it hurts. But," He said sensing her objection coming, "It's not going to work out. It's already falling apart. All the fights."

"They don't mean anything. Every couple has fights, but then they make up." Dawn said wistfully, "We always make up."

Leave it all the fights and all

Summer's getting colder

Drive all night to hold you tight

Back to California

"It's just to much. I'm going back to California. Giles needs a watcher there anyway. It'll be a lot of help to him." Andrew said.

"Giles could find someone else to go to. Please, Andrew. I love you." Dawn pleaded.

"Sometimes love isn't enough."

"I guess sometimes it's not, but why couldn't it be for us?" Dawn said.

"Maybe if things we're different it would be. If I wasn't traveling so much and could just stay here with you, maybe it would be." Andrew said.

Days went by we waited and I guess we're getting older

We couldn't win in the end.

You're gone.

I'm miles away turning out the lights

"I have to go, Dawn. If I stay any longer I may not be able to do the right thing." Andrew said starting to turn around.

"Why do you have to do the "right thing"?" Dawn said, "The right thing for you maybe. Not the right thing for me. I want you, here with me." She added softly.

10 different ways I could end this night

Can't do this anymore

Won't feel you anymore

How long I wait just to say goodbye.

Say Goodbye.

"Say I did stay and we were together. I would be off traveling whenever Giles needed me, leaving you here alone. You would end up resenting me. I don't want that Dawn. If we end it now you could have a better life." Andrew sighed.

"Or none of that would happen and we could end up married with a nice house and 2.5 kids. Happy." Dawn said, a hint of a smile showing behind her tears.

Leave it all the fights and all

Summer's getting colder

Drive all night to hold you tight

Back to California

"Why won't you just let me do this? I don't want to end up hurting you more than I have to." Andrew said.

"And I don't want to end up regretting letting you go." She answered.

Days went by we waited

And I guess we're getting older

We couldn't win in the end.

We couldn't win in the end

We couldn't win in the end

"I have nothing to offer you." Andrew whispered.

"Maybe you have everything to offer me." Dawn said.

"I don't though." He yelled, "How can you possibly love me?" Andrew asked, softening noticeably.

"How can anyone not?" Dawn said, looking him in the eyes.

"I can get in that cab right now," Andrew said pointing out the window, "and go to the airport and get on a plane or I can stay here." He concluded.

"I've given you enough reasons not to go." Dawn said.

"It won't be easy if I stayed, you know." Andrew said a slight smile appearing on his features.

"It won't be easy if you go either." Dawn countered.

"True." Andrew answered.

"I love you, Andrew." Dawn said, stepping forward and kissing him.

"Maybe love is enough." Andrew answered.

"I think right now, love definitely is enough." Dawn said before pulling Andrew in for another kiss.

A/N: I know Andrew was a little out of character but I tried. My birthday is in less than a month; give me a review for a present. PLEASE.
