Spike walked out to the balcony, the sight of New York City spreading before his eyes, although sunrise was mere minutes away, lights colored The City That Never Sleeps, it amused him how much NY didn't change. He could smell the sunrise coming and closed his eyes, letting the rays wash over him and he couldn't help chuckling. He opened his eyes and stared at the sun while shielding his eyes with his hand.

Once the sun detached from the horizon, Spike went back inside and to the bedroom, he sneaked in the bed as silently as he could. He rolled to his side, mirroring the sleeping redhead next to him, at least this time I didn't wake her up, he thought just as the seemingly sleeping woman, her eyes still closed, broke the silence.

"You are insane, you know?" Scarlett said, "every sunrise you do the same."

"You have any idea how many years I spent without seeing a bleeding sunrise?", he replied softly.

"Don't you ever get tired of getting up this early to see it?" She asked, her voice ever so sleepy.

"I promise, tomorrow will be the last day I do it," he answered, refraining himself from laughing.

"Liar," she said while moving close to him, resting her head on his shoulder, "now hush and sleep."

Spike put an arm around her and mentally chuckled; she was right, he would watch the sunrise the following day and tell her it would be his last. He closed his eyes, and as he fell asleep he couldn't believe he had been saying that one little lie for the last eighty years, and it felt good.
