Buffy was doing a quick patrol in Spike's cemetery. For some reason Spike turned down fifty bucks to do it, it was strange but she didn't question it. She whistled softly to herself. Buffy wasn't used to patrolling by herself; Willow was busying studying and Xander refused claiming he had something else to do but didn't give any indication on what.

A twig snapped about twenty-five feet in front of her. Quietly she made her way around a large oak tree, peeking from behind it to survey what she had heard. She didn't expect to find Xander standing in the middle of the cemetery alone with no weapon on him. Just as she was about to call out to her friend and ask him what he was doing there a vampire charged from the left.

She pulled out her stake ready to jump into the fight when out of nowhere Spike appeared staking the minion. Buffy watched as Spike sauntered over to Xander, she waited for him to start ripping into Xander about how useless he was just like he always did. So she couldn't help but be surprised when the vampire pulled her friend into a hug.

"Are you alright, luv?" Spike asked.

"Course I am, he wasn't anywhere close to me," Xander assured Spike with a smile. "Plus, I knew you were there."

"What the hell," Buffy whispered to herself. She watched as Spike kissed Xander's temple and smiled.

"Not going to let anything get you," Spike promised.

Buffy heard Xander laugh, "You say that every day, Big Bad."

"Cheeky, git," Spike growled playfully. "What are you doing here? I thought I was going to meet you at your place."

"Missed you," Xander kissed him. "I couldn't wait to see you."

Spike chuckled and kissed Xander back, "You are such a girl."

Buffy saw Xander mock pout, "You better be nice to me or you'll be sleeping alone tonight, buster."

"I'm sorry, oh manly Xander." Spike mocked and swooped in for another kiss.

"Jerk," Xander said with a smile. "So are you done with the killing and ready for the shagging?"

Buffy heard Spike moan, "Bloody hell, I love it when you say things like that."

"I know, why do you think I do it?" Xander grinned cocky at Spike. "Now move that arse of yours! We're wasting time." He took Spike's hand and led him out of the cemetery.

Neither of them noticed that Buffy still watched from her hiding place, "Huh." Buffy said, "I never saw that coming." With a shrug she followed suit and decided to go home and spend some time with her mom. Tomorrow she could grill Xander on his vampire boyfriend. An evil smile spread over her lips; some pay back was definitely in order.

The End
