Grow A Spine

"Grow a spine," he says. "That's what Gunn told me."

She studies him with wide, innocent eyes. "Why would he... I mean. Why would anyone, how would anyone even grow a spine?"

He raises an eyebrow.

"I know you don't meant it like that but sayings... they intrigue me. 'Grow a spine'. Can you imagine if someone actually did grow one?"

"Well, Fred. I –"

""I mean, Wesley. It would be amazing! Creepy as that fluke man in the X files but amazing."

"That's great, Fred. I feel so much better."

She grins at him. "As for Gunn, ignore him."
