The Maze

Part 7

" Ok we have shown Buffy what her future would have been like and Spike what his life was like. Now what?"

" We put them back where they were and let them work it out."

" That was amazing. I have never felt like that ever. I mean the sensations were beyond words." Buffy said when she finally had her breath back.

" I didn't think that it could ever be like that. We both know that we have amazing sex because of Slayer and vampire strength but my god that was incredible. I don't think that I will be able to walk for a few days." Spike said.

" Spike can I tell you something?"

" Sure luv, what ever you want."

" I know that you love me and that you know that I can't love you because of who you are but I think that I was wrong. I do love you. More than I thought was possible. Now before you say anything please hear me out."

" Ok."

" I think I loved you when we first made love in that abandoned house. I let everything go and just felt. Afterwards I didn't know what to think. I just went back to the hating you. I didn't think that I could love you because I had loved Angel and look where that got me. I want to spend my life with you Spike but I also want to have a semi-normal life. I want to get married and I want to have children but since you are a vampire I don't see that happening."

" Buffy, I want those things for you also. I don't want you to miss out on anything. I want you to have a marriage and children. You deserve those things. And me knowing that I could never give those to you tears me up inside. I wish that I could."

" Your wish is granted." The voice from above spoke.

Buffy and Spike looked at one another and then at the voice.

" You both have completed you quest to find true love and this is your reward. Go, be happy. Remember always this quest and the trials you had to bear to learn what you already knew."

Revello Drive five years in the future.

" You mean I am going to be a father?" Spike asked.

" Yes you are, and I am going to be a mother. I love you Spike."

" And I love you."
