Three Words

Prompt: What I should have said

Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Characters: Buffy Summers, Spike

Pairing: Buffy Summers/Spike

Summary: What Buffy should have said in Chosen.

The cavern shook and Spike's amulet began to glow. Faith cleared all the girls out, but waited for Buffy.

"I love you"

"No you don't, but thanks for saying it."

Buffy knew she should have said something as she clasped hands with him, but she didn't. She should've just said those three words.

"Yes I do"

That was all she'd had to say, and she couldn't do it.
