I have decided to update all my stories and start a new one all at the same time, so sorry that it's so late!

Chapter Three:

'Okay, this is awkward' Dawn kept thinking.

She was currently sitting in a comfy chair across from the couch. And you'll never guess who was sitting on that couch.

'Spike' Dawn thought.

As if on cue, "Umm. So, do you want something to drink?" Spike questioned nervously. It was much easier to say you'll do something, than to actually do it. Apparently, talking to Dawn was very much like that.

"Well, uh... do you have anything besides blood?" Dawn asked shyly, blushing slightly.

"Er, beer?" the Vampire chuckled out.

"I'll take it!" Dawn grinned as everything slipped back into the comfortable mode they had years ago established.

"So, what were you doing, before?" Spike asked an hour later, after some slight conversation and mostly just relaxing.

"I was.. I came to see you. I'm leaving and I just wanted to say good bye," Dawn whispered, a silent tear slipping down her cheek.

"Bit," Spike whispered, sliding over to her and wrapping his arms around her in quiet comfort.

" Spike?"


" I... I love you," She whispered, blushing madly and ducking her head into the crook of his arm.

'what? did she just say... Well, then, I guess I better answer'

"I love you too"

"Really?" Dawn's eyes sparkled.

"Yeah, but... you're going away to Harvard. How's this gonna work?"Spike questioned.

"Well? You do always say you wanna get outta SunnyHell. Why don't you come to Boston with me?" Dawn asked, slightly nervous.

"Hmm. You know what? That might work."

They sealed the idea with a kiss and left for Harvard University the next morning after a rather special night.

And they lived Happily Ever After!

Or atleast as close as you can get with Spike and Dawn.
