Into the Light

Summary: Somebody's tired of being in Buffy's shadow.

Timeline: nothing specific.

Warning: absolute crackfic; guess maybe slamming the phrase 'in Buffy's shadow'.

Thanks to my betas: AerynSpeedleCaine for inspiring this insanity.

Buffy's house

He sighed as he watched her get ready, knowing it would happen again…just like every other time. It's not that he didn't think she wasn't important or anything. Heck, he fell in love with her the first time he laid eyes on her. Nothing and no one would ever be more loyal and understanding to her than him.

But still…

There were moments when he wished she would consider his feelings about their situation. Couldn't she allow him to be in the front once in a while?

He felt her slide into place and sighed again, wanting to scream, 'Buffy, must you always hog the light?' And just as if she heard him, Buffy picked Mr. Gordo and rolled to her left so he was bathed in the warm glow of the seashell nightlight.

A/N: Musie is so twisted sometimes. I think she might be using drugs or something. Is there anything weird in Coke Zero?
