Chapter one- Finding you again

Artemis gathered a pile of papers up into her arm and turn to look into the mirror. She had hunter green eyes and long dirty blonde/ light brown hair that came a little below her shoulders. She was wearing a hunter green tank top with a cuff on her right wrist and a ring. Artemis had to admit that her body was average and that was coming from living under a curse that made you immortal. The only way she could be killed was the use of wolfsbane. She made sure her jeans looked good before heading over to Angel's office. The man had a good heart and tried to help when ever he could. He had a hard past and Artemis did not judge him one bit. Artemis knocked on the door and heard a soft "Come in". She slowly opened the big wooden doors and walked in, while shutting the door behind her.

" What is going on my golden angel?" Angel asked

"I was wondering what your plans were for tonight?" Artemis replied

"I figured we could head home and relax." Angel answered

"That sounds good to me." Artemis said

She walked over to Angel and sat down on his lap. He knew all about her past and her whole story. artemis was born Serenity Leos. In the year 1935 and she left after her father arranged a marriage for her at the age of eighteen. She then traveled the world and changed her name Serria Nicolo. While she went to england, she meet a group of gypsies. They took her soul and made her a killing machine to kill a clan of witches. Artemis traveled back to Sunnydale to kill the witches. She killed many innocent people and her stepmother, Cyrilla. She even killed the man she was supposed to get married to. A witch that survived the attack gave Artemis back her soul and cursed her. This made her immortal and see all the damage she had done. Artemis continued to travel until her father was about to die. She sneak in and was by his side for most nights. Artemis told him everything and how sorry she was. Artemis then took over her family things. She was a rare breed of werewolf. They were known as the pure werewolves because they could only transform to a humanized wolf. When she wolfed out her eyes would turn light blue and she would gain pointy ears. Artemis would have claws and fangs as well. She could heal fast, had keen senses, and was super strong. She could even shift into a wolf as well,that had for legs. She took the name Artemis when she meet Buffy. Now, she was dating Angel all because Spike sacrificed himself. Artemis missed him dearly and wished he would come back but, that was never going to happen.

Angel ran his fingers through her hair and pulled her closer to him. He had meet Artetim during the time he meet Buffy. He had felt so bad when he saw Artemis come to him. She looked like she had broken into a million pieces and gave up on life. It did no take her much time to give him a chance to be with her. He had always had feelings for her when he was with Buffy. He never acted on them until now. Angel was glad to have her in his life and working for him. Angel lifted both of them up with Artemis in his arms. They slowly walked down the hallway before stopping at the front desk and getting a set of keys from Harmony. Angel gently set Artemis down in the seat and went into the drivers side. He started up the dark green Camaro and took off down the road. Artemis leaned her head against the window; her green eyes glowed. Angel thought she looked beautiful in the moonlight. She seemed to glow everywhere. They soon arrived at their apartment and Angel carried her up.

"What has been on your mind?" Angel asked

"I have been thinking about the past. That is all." Artemis replied

"You are thinking about Spike again." Angel said

"Not now, I think about when I lost my soul." Artemis replied

In trueful, she was thinking about Spike. The way he used to make her laugh and how he would hold her in his arms. Spike realized that he loved in with Artemis when he got his soul. Artemis had been in love with him for awhile. She knew that Spike had feelings for her when Angelus came back and told her. Spike had come and helped her after Angelus attacked her. Artemis remember when he was sacrificing himself; he told her that he loved her. Now, he was gone forever. Artemis sat down on the couch and rested her head on Angel's shoulder and nuzzled him. Angle wrapped his arms around her and pulled her into his lap. They turned to watch the TV. They were watching a movie, it was about vampires and werewolves. Artemis was being filled with need for tonight was the night of a full moon. It was one night that she was not going to control it. She began nuzzling Angel's neck and icking his cheek. Angel closed his eyes for a moment to enjoy the feeling. Angel did not know the reason why he could keep his soul after he had sex with Artemis and had a blissful moment with her. Angel gently kissed Artemis' neck and glazed his teeth over the skin. Artemis closed her eyes and pulled Angel closer to her. Angel picked her up and carried her into the bedroom. They continued to make love and soon fell asleep.

Artemis woke up around eight thirty at night. She had gotten used to sleeping during the daytime and living during night. She had started this routine when she started dating Spike. He was only hunting her in her dreams.

The Dream

Spike would be standing by a window looking into the night sky. His back would be turned towards her and she would slowly walk over to him and wrap her arms around him. He would sigh and put his hands over hers, gently rubbing his thumb over her hand. She would nuzzle his back and he would turn her around in his arms. She would be wearing a dark green silk dress and he would be wearing black dress pants. Artemis would nuzzle his neck and lick in. She would whimper under his touch and whine for him to continue. Spike would smirk at her and pull her into a kiss.

"My sexy huntress, you will forever be mine and no one else can have you. You must look at yourself as a beautiful and delegate creature of the night. We were made to be will never truely leave you." Spike would say

Spike would then continue to undress her and him. He would make her moan his name as he made love to her. Artemis would enjoy every minute of it and would cry out in pure pleasure. It would end as Artemis would roll over looking for Spike after they made love.

This would make Artemis feel guilty after she made love to Angel. She slowly got up and took a shower and got ready for work. Artemis would be heading to the office before Angle and it would allow time to herself. Artemis slowly started to run through the streets fast that an average human could. She made it to the office in no time and went into her office. Artemis had a bunch of paper work to do and it was going to take a while. Artemis rubbed her face with her hands.

"Dam it! Why are always on my mind Spike." Artemis said as tears ran down her cheeks. She ran to the bathroom and washed her face off. She changed into her semi humanized wolf form. She snarled at herself and bared her fangs. She changed back and headed to her office to continue to on the paper work. She sighed and then felt something strange. It was like her inner wolf was pulling her towards something. Artemis followed her instincts and went into Angel's office. A box was sitting on his desk and she grabbed it into her hands. She used one of her claws to open up the box and flipped it over. The amulet that Spike used in battle fell out. Spike soon appeared in front of her and she covered her mouth with her hand. He was alive and standing right in front of her but, she could not be too sure of herself. He was standing right in front of her and all she wanted to do was reach out and touch him, She slowly walked towards him. Spike looked up at her and into her green eyes. How he had missed her and remembered telling her before he died that he loved her. Now she was standing in front of him, unsure if it was really him. How he had missed him and wanted to be in his arms. Spike closed the gap in between them. He reached out to wipe the tear away from Artemis' eye but, he passed right through her.

"My poor sexy huntress, what has happened to you while I have been gone?" Spike asked

"You will not like most of it. I thought I had lost you forever. There was never a minute that I was not thinking of you. You are going to hate me for what I am doing now. I thought I would never get you back." Artemis explained

"I could never hate you, Artemis. You know that and I may be upset with you but never hate you." Spike replied

"I started to date Angel, while you were gone. It took me awhile to let him in and to date. He told me I needed to move on and he would help. I can't even touch you or have you hold me." Artemis said

Spike stood there and watched Artemis almost fall apart. He was a little upset with her for dating Angel, he was also jealous as well. Spike did not blame Artemis for going on with her life and he did not blame her. what was killing him was him not being able to hold her and comfort her. Artemis fell to the floor on her knees as she was crying. Artemis stayed there with Spike watching over her, wondering if he would ever be held in his arms again.
