Title: Smoking Habits
Disclaimer: I own none, all belong to Joss Whedon
Summary: This was my entry for the first round of jossverse_las, off the prompt "Habits."
Spike's smoking habit both annoyed and intrigued Xander. Xander couldn't stand the smell of the smoke and often found he coughed until his sides hurt because of it. Spike tried not to smoke around Xander as much since they gotten together but it just lingered on everything. That really annoyed Xander.
What intrigued Xander about Spike smoking was that Spike didn't need to breathe. Why did Spike spend so much time doing something when he didn't have to do it? It wasn't like Spike was actually addicted to smoking. He just loved having something in between his lips. Spike often blamed Xander for that. He often told Xander that if he would let Spike suck him off at the Scooby meetings he wouldn't smoke as much. Xander just snorted at that and told Spike he got more than enough nookie at home.
Xander would never understand Spike and his need to smoke but in the end he didn't really need to. Spike liked it and Xander liked Spike. That's all that mattered.
