He enjoyed laughing at teenagers fumbling all over themselves with their twisting hearts and raging hormones. They remained jokes while growing older, still constantly sacrificing everything. Spike couldn't believe the little Prom Queen went to rags while blindly following the Great Poof's hero quest with him still lamenting over Buffy.
But that was long ago. He's watched all but Angel die. He knows the truth at last as he cries while watching Angel mourning in sunlight. He's the greatest fool of all, because even now, he's still love's bitch, still reaching for the hero who'll never again caress the damned.
