Xander rolled onto his side, his arm went out to wrap around Spike. When all he hit was cool sheets Xander pried his eyes open. "Spike?" With a frown he crawled out of bed and grabbed a pair of sweat pants.
"Ow! Bloody hell, you little beast!" Spike cursed loudly, which made Xander dash from his room, forgetting about the sweats.
"What happened?" Xander had grabbed a bat that was beside his bedroom door.
Spike was growling at Nudd who sat on the kitchen counter licking his paw. "This little bastard bit me!"
"Aww come on, Spike. He's just a baby." Xander scooped Nudd into his arms. "We just need him to get used to you."
Spike scowled at them. "A vampire can't even get a mug of blood."
Xander walked over to Spike and kissed him. "Morning."
"Morning pet," Spike replied and kissed him back. "How'd you sleep?"
"Mmm… best sleep ever." Xander said with a smile. He looked down at Nudd who was hissing. "Behave, Nudd!"
Nudd scowled but stopped hissing.
"See, you just need to be firm with him. But not mean!" Xander shot Spike an accusing look.
"I'm nice," Spike said with a pout. "Nice to you anyway."
Xander grinned, "You are nice to me. That's why I know you'll be nice to Nudd."
"Should have named him 'pain in my bloody arse'," Spike complained.
"Like I would have named him that," Xander replied and set Nudd onto the counter. "I need to take a shower before I take Nudd over to the girls. Can I trust you two to behave yourselves?" Xander asked looking between the two.
Spike pouted, "I was just getting some blood. I am completely innocent!"
Xander grinned and kissed Spike. "We both know that's a crock of shit." He turned and made his way to the bathroom.
"You heard what my nummy said." Spike stuck his finger into his blood and then proceeded to flick speckles of blood on to Nudd's dark fur. "Behave."
Nudd's tail swished side to side wildly as he brought his paws up to clean himself.
Spike chuckled and downed his blood before making his way back to Xander's bed. It was to damn early for this vampire! He ignored the fact that Nudd trailed after him.
