"I got it!" Xander said rushing into their bedroom where Spike was asleep. He jumped on the bed. "Spike, wake up! I got it!"
Spike burrowed his head underneath his pillow. Why couldn't Xander ever remember the rule of letting him sleep until two in the afternoon?
"Come on, Spike! I know you're awake!" Xander said with a slight whine. He nudged Spike.
"Xander, why do you always have to come in and bother me while I'm asleep?" Spike asked. "It's not even with a blow job!"
Xander rolled his eye. Spike always did have a one-track mind. "Come on, Spike! I solved the problem to our nickname!"
That made Spike interested. His head popped out from under the pillow. "You mean the girls aren't going to call us Spander anymore?"
"No more Spander," Xander said happily. "Our new nickname is going to be… Xanike!"
"Xanike?" Spike repeated.
Xander nodded. "How cool is that?"
Spike sat up. He was about to crush his pet's dream. "Luv, Xanike is a name of a demon."
"No, it's not!" Xander denied. "Is it?"
"Back in 1902 me and Drusilla ran into one. Nasty demons, somehow related to chaos demons. Not nearly as slimy."
Xander's shoulders slumped. "Damn."
"I guess were stuck with Spander," Spike commented.
"I guess so," Xander agreed sullenly.
Spike pulled Xander so the both of them were lying down. "It's not that bad."
"No, but I don't know why your name has to be first."
"Because I'm sexier," Spike said and received an elbow to ribs. "I don't know, pet."
Xander sighed. "Spander is sort of catchy."
"It is," Spike agreed.
"And it makes us special no one else in the group as a nickname as cool as us," Xander added getting excited.
Why did Spike suddenly have a bad feeling about this? "Pet, what are you thinking?"
Xander had a shit-eating grin. "Since we have such an awesome nickname I think everyone should know it!"
"Bloody hell, pet," Spike whined. He looked at Xander who was now pouting. With a low growl Spike caved. "Fine! But one snicker from anyone I'm gonna tan your hide!"
Xander gave Spike a quick kiss on the lips before he jumped off the bed. "All I see is a win/win situation!" He ran out of the bedroom to call Buffy and tell her the great news.
Spike threw the blankets over his head. Where had they put their paddle?
