Spike's Tale

Chapter 1

"Hey Jesse!" I said. I had just driven over his apartment on my way to school. I was at his door and he was smiling at me. He looked a little groggy, but also very clean. See Jesse is the guy who loves to get up early. The complete opposite of me - but you know what they say, opposite's attract.Frankly, I like my sleep. But he gets up for work anyway, though I really don't see the point in getting uptwo hours earlier than you have to. That will always remain a mystery to me. Screw the sunrise. I mean its beautiful and all when you see it, especially in Jesse's presence, but I need my sleep or I'm a total bitch the whole day. That's partly why Dopey can't stand me. I'm a complete bitch to him everyday because I never get enough sleep. Well, I'm not a bitch around Jesse because he is so nice to me and we're in love. You don't want the love of your life seeing you PMSing when its not even that time of the month. Actually, sometimes I do get up early, because I have to see Father Dom in the morning for some things. You know, mediating things. Not very unusual, eh? Uh..yeah...the rambling...its gotta stop.

Anyway, Jesse had opened the door and was beaming at me. Uh, okay. Is there something I'm missing? "Hello, Susannah," he said in that silky smooth voice of his. He leaned down and gave me a little peck on the lips. However, I had other plans. When he was about to pull away, I pulled him back toward me and gave him a nice long kiss that he fully returned. I don't think he really understood what happened until he was looking at me again, kissing aside.

"Susannah," he smirked, "can you not do that? At least not in the doorway," he stated. What? You don't like my kisses, Jesse? I like yours...

"Sorry, Jesse, I couldn't help myself. How about we go inside then?" I offered.

He just looked at me and shook his head, "What am I going to do with you?"

I stepped closer to him, "Kiss me?"

He chuckled, "Aren't you supposed to be somewhere querida?"

Uh, with you. "Oh come on Jesse, school doesn't start for another hour," I whined.

"Susannah, you have a meeting with Father Dominic this morning, do you not?" He inquired.

"Jesse," I groaned, "I'm sure Father Dom with understand if I'm late." I grinned at him.

"Susannah!" He yelled. Meanwhile we were still at the doorway.

"What?" I asked all innocently, "I was just gonna tell him there was traffic."

He rolled his eyes and said, "Fine, come in Susannah," we walked in and he closed the door behind him, "I have a surprise for you anyway." Oh, so that's why he looked so happy.

I saw Spike on the windowseat in the living room. I went over to pet him. Yeah, that thing had a grudge against me. But I wanted to make ends meet and see if I could get him to like me. I'll just start by petting him. So, I went over to pet him. He was sleeping, so I started petting his head. He opened his eyes and looked at me. And hissed.

I backed away, for fear of attack. Jesse just came up behind me and chuckled.

"That cat is evil," I stated.

"I'm sure he thinks the same fo you," he said. Hey! That was mean.

"Hey! I'm the one who saved him. He should be grateful for that," I muttered. I looked back at the cat. He was glaring at me.

"True," Jesse agreed.

"Maybe he's gay," I suggested.

"What?" Jesse asked, surprised.

"Maybe he's gay. I mean, the cat hates me and loves you. Maybe he's got a kitty crush on you." Then I started giggling. It's kinda funny. I mean if he were human, he'd probably be putting the moves on my Jesse.

"Susannah, shut up," he said. Did he just...? Hmph.

He went over to the cat and started petting him and scratching his head. The cat was purringreally loudly. God, it sounds like a broken refrigerator. If only Jesse would give me that much attention. It makes you think he's gay with his cat. Um, eww...

"Jesse.." I whined.

"Yes, Susannah?" He asked. God, he can be so infuriating sometimes.

It would be nice if you did that to me, I thought.

"Excuse me?"Jesse asked, kind of laughingly.

Huh? "What did I say?" Oh god, I didn't! "Did I just say that out loud?"

"Yes you did, querida," he said.

"Oh god," I groaned.

He smiled and came over to me. I plopped myself down on his plush couch. He plopped himslef next to me. "Susannah, its okay," he said.

"Uh, no its not, I just completely embarrassed myself," I said.

"You shouldn't feel embarrassed around me querida," he said. And then he leaned over and kissed me. Hmm, maybe I should embarrass myself more often.

I kissed him back. Just the way to start my day, kissing my boyfriend.

He pulled back and looked at me, "Feel better now, querida?"

I grinned, "A little."

Then he leaned in for another one. Jeez, this guy is really horny this morning.

That thought made me giggle a bit and I pulled away to giggle more. Jesse just looked at me strangely. "Querida, are you alright?"

"Yes," I said between giggles.

"Okay then," he said and stood up. He walked into his bedroom for a minute and reappeared moments later.

"Would you like that surprise now querida?" he asked.

"Boy would I," I said and got up. I walked over to Jesse, who was beaming again, by the way.

He led me into his bedroom and shut the door. Okay...he's not gonna jump me or anything right now, is he? I wouldn't mind that, but I'd be late for school.

"Susannah," Jesse said. I turned my attention back to him.


He picked up a blanket with something in it and gently handed it to me. It was rather warm. And it was moving. I opened the blanket up to reveal an adorable little Pomeranian puppy.

"Oh my god, its so cute!" I shrieked. I've always wanted a dog, but my mom would never let me get another one because of Max.

"So you like her?" he asked.

"Of course I do!"

He smiled and kissed my cheek, "I knew you would."

Then I sighed, "But Jesse, my mom will never let me keep her." I frowned.

"I know querida, that's why I'm going to keep her here and take care of her," he said.

"Oh, thanks SO much Jesse!" I exclaimed.

He chuckled, "No problem Susannah." Then he glanced at the clock on his wall, "Susannah, you must get to school now. You are already late for Father Dominic's meeting," he said and rushed me out the door. But not before giving me a nice frencher to start my day.

I smiled the whole way down to the parking lot. I was even smiling when I got to school.

Father D was puzzled by my sudden rush of happiness, but he didn't say anything to me. I could just tell.

Okay, kindly review people. Can I have a minimum of 10 reviews? Please?

I would just like to know that at least ten people are reading it.
