Pairing: Xander/Spike, Willow
Willow sat across from Xander in the coffee shop and sipped her chai like it was the finest wine. Xander slurped at his coffee and waited for the inquisition to begin. “So, Xan, what’s going on?”
“Um. I’m having a problem. Well, not so much a problem as a dilemma. Okay, well, dilemma might be too strong. Quandary? What exactly is a quandary anyway? I think I’ve been hanging around Giles too long. Cause doesn’t that sound like a Giles word? And so, yeah, my quandary is that I kind of, sort of, well maybe more than kind of but yeah, I like Spike.”
Willow smiled at him indulgently. “Xan, we all like Spike. It’s okay, you know. The whole ‘we hate you just because you’re a vampire’ thing has exceptions.
Xander sighed. Yeah, there were exceptions all right.
