Dear Diary,

I hate Tara's family.

Dear Diary,

I'm not real! Some crazy lady came to the house. She said Buffy had her key, she was threatening mom and me when Buffy and Spike came running in. She is really strong and Buffy and Spike got beat up but she left. Buffy and Spike went upstairs after that and when they came down Buffy sat us down and told me and mom that I'm the key that lady was looking for. Some stupid monks made me and gave me to Buffy to protect. Buffy and Spike said I'm real and they still love me so did mom. But I'm not so sure. I went outside to think and Spike came out and sat down next to me. I told him I was worried I was evil. I mean that lady was evil and she said the key was evil. Spike told me it doesn't matter if I was evil. What matters is what I do now. I guess he would know. He used to be evil and now he helps us out. So maybe it doesn't matter how I got here or what I used to be.

Dear Diary,

Mommy is really sick! She has a brain tumor! She can't die, I need her. Spike was there when they told us. I saw Spike crying later but I didn't let him know I saw. He is trying to be strong for us but I know how much he loves mom. We brought her home but she has to go back in for surgery tomorrow. Some demon attacked while Buffy and Spike were helping mom into bed. Spike gave me a weapon and told me to stand by mom while him and Buffy went after the demon. Buffy was kinda mad at him for it but he calmed her down.

Dear Diary,

Mom had her surgery. The doctors say she will be fine but Spike wanted to make sure. He took her to a healer a few days after her surgery. It took forever for the lady to finish. When she came out of the room she had mom in she said everything would be fine now. Spike and Buffy went to talk to her in another room I tried to listen in but I couldn't hear everything. When they came out Buffy was wiping tears off her face but she wouldn't tell me what she said. Buffy treats me like such a baby! I asked Spike about it later, he said the healer found a complication from the surgery but she fixed it. He's going to bring mom back to her again in a few months just to make sure. I know Buffy didn't want me to know but I knew I could ask Spike. He wouldn't lie to me; he never treats me like a little kid.

Dear Diary,

That crazy lady is a Hell-God! Her name is Glory and she wants to use me to go back to her dimension, but if she does really bad things will happen. Spike said she is working with some guy named Ben at the hospital but it doesn't make sense. But I believe him; Spike never lied to me before. The Watcher Council showed up, that's how we found out about Glory. They wanted Buffy to tell them where the key was so they could destroy it. Remind me to never ever do anything to get Buffy that mad at me she's scary when she's mad! Spike was just as mad! I thought he was going to kill someone! Okay yeah that stupid chip would stop him but I don't think he would have cared about the pain. I have to be the only girl in the world with a vampire bodyguard. How cool is that?

Dear Diary,

Spike gave everyone charms to wear. I thought it was funny to see Xander and Giles wearing a necklace until we ran into Ben one day. Ben is Glory! We barely got away from him or is it her? Ugh, confusing! That was what Spike was trying to tell us. Spike knew but only demons could tell so Spike had the charms made, it blocked the magic Glory used. Spike and Giles have been talking for days trying to figure out what to do. Glory grabbed Spike a few days ago and really beat him up. She wanted to know who the key was but he didn't tell. Giles and Xander thought he might have but not me. Mom and Buffy knew he wouldn't either. They finally convinced Giles to give Spike that ring he found last year so he can't get hurt. Stupid Giles, Spike should have had it all along!

Dear Diary,

We're in LA. We ran from Glory and these human knights that were trying to get us. We slipped out in the middle of the night. Spike planned it; he knocked on our door and told us to get in the van. Everyone was inside the van already; we took off and wound up in LA at Angel's hotel. Giles says we only have to stay a few more days and then Glory can't use me anymore. Angel wasn't here when we got here but man was he mad when he got back! I guess nobody told him Buffy was dating Spike and he walked in on them kissing! There was big fight in the lobby and Spike totally kicked his butt!

Dear Diary,

Giles says it's safe to go back home now. He was reading the paper and there was a story about that Ben guy. They found him dead in an alley in Sunnydale two days ago, with his neck broken. I think Giles might have thought Spike did it, but Spike never left my side the whole time we were here. He even slept in my room on the floor! And mom and Buffy stayed in the room too! The article said the police don't have any leads but I'm pretty sure I know who did it. Maybe he isn't such a jerk after all.
