Dashing and daring
Courageous and caring
Faithful and friendly
With stories to share
All through the forest
They sing out in chorus
Marching along
As their song fills the air

Spike clenched his teeth together as Xander belted out the words to the child's song as loud as he could. For the last hour Xander had been hyped up on sugar, bouncing around like an idiot. They were sent out on patrol but because of Xander's horrible singing, it appeared that every single demon in town had gone into hiding. He wouldn't have been surprised if a few of them offed themselves just to get away from the noise.

Gummy Bears
Bouncing here and there and everywhere
High adventure that's beyond compare
They are the Gummy Bears

Xander continued to sing now bouncing to the next lyrics in the song.

"For the love of all that is unholy!" Spike shouted.

Xander blinked owlishly at Spike, bouncing a little less, "What's wrong?"

"You have been singing that bloody annoying song for the last hour pet and it's getting on my last sodding nerve," Spike told his lover irritatedly.

Xander stopped his bouncing completely looking at Spike with big brown eyes. "You think I'm annoying."

"Of course not, pet," Spike replied with a soft sigh, silently thanking whoever would help out an undead evil bastard and would stop Xander from bouncing around. "I love you; you just have annoying… quirks. Eating three pounds of those goobers…"

"Gummy bears! Were you not listening to the song at all?" Xander asked with slight annoyance.

Spike rolled his eyes, "Gummy bears, then. You are hopped up on a sugar high bouncing around like a twit on the Hell Mouth. Does that seem like the brightest thing you should be doing?"

"No," Xander replied with a mumble. "But I like candy."

"I've noticed," Spike replied dryly. "How about from now on you only eat that crap at home when we don't have to be walking around where any intelligent demon would want to snack on such a nummy treat?"

Xander beamed brightly, "You think I'm still a nummy treat?"

Spike grinned at Xander and pulled him in to a kiss. "You're the nummiest thing I've ever tasted, luv."

Xander kissed Spike back before pulling away. "I don't think we're gonna find any demons tonight."

"Looks like," Spike replied with a leer. "How about we get you home and I help you take care of all this pent-up energy you have?"

Xander bounced again, causing Spike to worry that he would begin singing again as well. "Good thing I don't work tomorrow." Xander tried a leer of his own which failed miserably.

"Bloody good thing because I don't plan on letting you get to sleep until noon," Spike answered, pulling Xander towards their apartment.

Xander gulped before giggling. He'd have to remember to go back to the bulk store Willow had told him about. He planned on stocking up on candy in the very near future. Very quietly Xander began humming the gummy bear theme song.

The End
