"Spike. Sweetheart. Love of my life. Schnookums," Xander said as he walked out of their bedroom into the living room where Spike played Donkey Kong on the X-box.

Spike winces at the nickname 'schnookums'. Whenever Xander called him that, it meant he was in trouble. "Yeah, Xan-pet?" He put the game on pause and looked at Xander.

Xander walked over to Spike and sat on his lap running his hand through gel-free hair. "You know I love you, right?" Xander asked as he curled a lock of hair around his finger.

"Course I do, pet," Spike smiled figuring everything was fine. "I love you, too."

"Good," Xander smiled before glaring down at Spike. "If you throw your demon gooed clothes on my side of the bed one more time I am going to let Dawn bedazzle your docs like she has been begging to do for weeks, understand?" Xander threatened Spike.

Spike's eyes widened in pure fear, "Yeah Xan, it won't happen again."

Xander climbed off of Spike's lap, "Good. " Xander smiled again and made his way back to the bedroom. "Oh, schnookums?"

"Yeah, luv?" Spike asked looking wary.

"I love you," Xander said before going in to change the covers on the bed.

The End
