Summary: Sometimes he comes to her in the night
Sometimes, though it was happening less and less often now, she was awoken in the night by all too familiar footsteps. Then there was the swish of a duster rounding the corner, and he was standing in her doorway. What followed was always identical. He strips down to his jeans, and crawls into bed next to her. He takes her in his arms, his breath ghosting over her neck, and he's warm. If she concentrates, she can feel the dull thud-thud-thud of his heart against her back.
"Hello, Pet. Glad to see me again? But then I'm not the first lover you've sent to hell for the sake of the world, am I? And we just keep coming back don't we?" His voice is low and rough, making her shiver.
Then she looks around and her room is empty. Spike is gone, his clothes are gone, but the air still carries the faint scent of leather and tobacco.
