Chapter 10

"This place?" Xander asked, peering through the windows of his car with Buffy in the passenger seat.

Buffy nodded, her heart skipped a beat as she thought of what she may have to do.

"This is where Clem said." She said. Reaching for the handle, Xander stopped her. "Buffy wait."

She turned to face him.

"Good luck."

"Thanks," she paused; hardly believing she was asking this of her friend, "If something happens,"

"I know what to do." Buffy got out of the car and watched Xander drive away.

Buffy ran into the abandoned warehouse, praying she wasn't too late.

"Spike." She gasped when she saw him feeding form a defenceless pregnant woman.

"What are you doing?" spike dropped the woman to the floor, she was dead.

"I told you Buffy, you're too late. I'm too late, we're all too late." He screamed like a mad man.

"You can stop Spike." Buffy told ihm.

"No, it's too late. He's coming."

Buffy's eyes went wide and filled with tears. "Who?" she asked, too scared of the answer.

"Lucifer, Satan. The devil."

Buffy was now scared. She couldn't take on the devil.

"Why?" the ground began to shake violently. "Why would you?" she shouted over the roaring of the ground moving.

"He told me to, the only way you can stop it is by killing me." He grabbed her and kissed her lips softly.

"I love you. God I love you so much." Spike said to her, caressing her cheek.

"I love you too," she replied, pulling out her stake.

"We'll be together again, soon. I promise you." He said, tears down his own cheeks. Buffy nodded and kissed him one last time. She stood back and pulled back her stake. Closing her eyes, she plunged it into Spike's heart.

The ground began to shake more wiolently. Bright lights flashed everywhere red, green, and blue. The lights now had faces; they began to screech, like nails on a chalkboard. Spike turned into a pile of dust. Then, suddenly, everything went quiet once more.
