Chapter One: Sweet Violet Moonlight
It was midnight. The night is young like some people might say. She was sitting at the bar. She had a beautiful young face; she had purple hair that reached to the small of her back. Deep and dark like violet silk. Her skin was a creamy color from far it seemed to glow but he was sure that it was soft as a rose petal. He couldn't see her face because her bangs covered the curve of her cheeks so he could only see the back of her head. But that alone made his imagination wander, like what it would be like to cradle her head in his hands while he kissed her. But as he sat in the darkness he could see the lights of the bar illuminate her like a sweet sin. But he was sure that she couldn't see him after all he was sitting at the last booth far from her view. But she was something to look at. He wondered what color her eyes were or what her lips tasted like. But most of all how old she was, she couldn't be younger than seventeen years old. And in a bar like this a girl her age could get into some big trouble. She had temptation written all over her. She shouldn't even be here, especially in those jeans. They fit her like a glove.
"Uh? What? "
"Stop ogling the girl you slob" said the buff looking man that sat in the booth with him and grinned at him across the booth's table.
"Oh hey Jet, I am not ogling"
"Well why the hell not? " Jet said almost outraged, then gave Spike a hardy laugh.
"I'm just kidding Spike but she is a pretty little thing. I wonder how old she is"
"Yeah I was wondering the same thing "
"Well why don't you go up to her and ask her before-" Jet stopped in midsentence as he turned to look at the bar.
"Oh damn look at that "
Spike turned to find a handsome young man great the girl with an embrace and a kiss on the cheek. Spike frowned and thought, 'what the hell? Who was that?' he turned back to Jet to find him staring at him.
"Nothing" said Jet with a knowing grin.
Spike grunted in response.
"Well what the hell you want, Jet? "
"What? Can't a guy just come to see his buddy? "He said with an innocent look on his face.
"Right" said Spike with a bored look on his face.
"So what do you want?" he said with a determined look on his face.
"Oh alright" he said with a scowl.
"Look I need you too watch Ed for me"
"WHAT!" Spike yelled in a mix of outrage and irritation. He sneaked a look at the girl and noticed se was laughing. It sounded bubbly and sweet. He wondered if he could make her laugh like that-"
"I have to travel and I can't take her with me"
Jet's statement pulled him out of his thoughts and back to focus on what Jet was saying.
"And I will only be gone for a week "
"I am not keeping the little monkey "
"Come on Spike please?" pleaded Jet with a tired look on his face.
"Plus she will only stay with you "
"Arg…alright! But if she touches anything I will be ten kinds of pissed "
"She won't! And I already got her a babysitter to take care of her if you need to leave "
"Ok so when do you leave for your trip? "
Jet glanced at his watch and said "In an hour "
"Wait where is Ed now? It's a little past midnight and she isn't with you "
"She is with one of the other babysitters cause her babysitter had the night off so she hasn't meet her yet I just hope that Ed will like her"
"Oh ok" said Spike and sneaked another look at the girl. She was getting up and hugging the guy she had came with. She smiled at the guy they walked to the exit.
"Holy shit, Spike!"
"Uh? Spike turned to see Jet staring at the table. Spike looked down and saw his drink had gone up in smokes.
"Oh shit" he said with a sheepish smile.
His drink had burned when his cigarette end fell into it while he was watching the girl leave.
Spike pushed the cup aside.
"So what's the babysitter's name?" he asked.
"Faye Valentine" answered Jet.
