Well it's finally here; the end of this longass story. I do hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I promise there'll be a new fic up possibly today or tomorrow. Enjoy, review, and read more of my stories! Thanks.
"I'll get it!" Buffy called out from the kitchen, though it was much too early for anyone to give a damn.
She opened the door and was bombarded by a kiss.
When it was finally over, she gaped at the person standing in front of her.
"I couldn't let it go, B. Was just too good to let go. I've let go of a lot of good things in my life, Buffy, and this was just one thing I couldn't let go." Faith splurted out, hands wringing by her side.
"I don't know how you do it, B, maybe you just don't care for me like I do for you but I couldn't keep going not knowing what this meant."
"Maybe I'm crazy, maybe I'm just fucknuts dumb, but you kissed me first, B, and I want to know what it meant."
Faith's eyes bored hopefully into Buffy's.
"I...am I just crazy, B?"
Buffy didn't know what came over her but she tilted her head slightly, smiled softly, and leaned in for another kiss.
When they opened their eyes, Faith was beaming, and Buffy was blushing madly.
"I guess I'm not crazy, then?"
"Oof!" Faith's breath went straight out of her as Dawn came tumbling down the stairs into her arms.
"You're finally here!"
"Buffy's been moping like a wet rag ever since we left L.A.!"
"Oh has she?" Faith asked, quirking her eyebrows at Buffy.
Buffy blushed again.
"Well it's not as if she could hide her emotions all that well, now could she?" Anya's voice came muttering from upstairs, while Willow and Tara came down hand in hand.
"It's g-good to s-see you, Faith." Tara said softly.
"Good to see you too, T. Red."
Willow nodded her greeting towards Faith as well, smiling cutely.
"So...ah...how are things?" Faith asked awkwardly, drumming her fingers against her thigh.
"Well, Faith, it seems we have another demon on the loose, but it's certainly nothing we can't handle if you'd do us the honor of assisting us." Giles' voice came from behind her, as he stepped into the house with an open book in his hand.
"Sure, G-man. That's no problem. Just let me call Soulboy first." She glanced over at Buffy, who seemingly couldn't stop staring at her.
"Gotta let him know I got here all safe and sound." She finished as she headed over towards the phone in the adjoining kitchen.
Her thoughts were in perfect harmony as she dialed the numbers.
"Wolfram and Hart, Cordelia speaking."
"Hey Cor, things going crazy over there yet?"
"Considering the crazy left us to go back to Sunnydale, no, things are quite calm around here, thank you."
"Aw, still bitter I left?"
"You hardly came back for two days, you slut."
"Come on, C. I'll be back to visit."
"And I bet you'll find an awful time to do it, too. You just have the most horrible timing, did you know that?"
"I know, I know."
"So you got there okay?"
"Yea. New bike Angel got me runs as smooth as-"
"I don't want to know."
"...well, it's nice."
"What about the losers?"
"Getting along great, surprisingly."
Faith couldn't help but grin.
On the other line, Cordelia smiled softly, though her heart sighed with slight discontent.
"Well good. I'm glad it's all turning out for you, Faith. I'll let Angel know you called."
"Thanks, Cordy. For everything."
"Well you know how good charity looks on the resume, Faith."
"Not your job, thank you very much."
They shared a laugh.
"Oh and Faith?"
"You tell that blonde bimbo that if she even thinks about breaking your heart, I will personally drive down and shove a stiletto up her uptight ass."
Faith was about to respond when the phone was grabbed from her hand.
"I hear you loud and clear, Cordelia. And I promise I won't." Buffy said assertively into the receiver, eyes gazing into Faith's.
"Good. I suppose I'll let you two go and fornicate like rabbits in a field. Thank god you two can't reproduce."
"Haha, very funny. Goodbye Cordy."
"Goodbye, Buffy. BYE FAITH!"
Buffy glared at the phone from a foot away, ears still ringing from Cordelia's shouting.
Faith couldn't help but laugh.
"She's got a pair of balls on her, don't she?"
"God, I hope not. That's frightening beyond frightening."
"Well, what are we waiting for?"
"Let's go fornicate like rabbits in a field!"
"You know you want to."
Faith grinned devilishly as she grabbed Buffy's hand and dragged her out of the kitchen and up the stairs.
Time for a good night.
