Theme: The Elements - Air
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters at all. They belong completely to Joss Whedon and I'm only only borrowing them.
Spike swore as he flew through the air and slammed into a wall. Scowling, he immediately jumped back up and stalked back in the direction of the demon he’d been fighting, glancing to be sure Dru and Xander were okay. He smirked when he saw Dru move to help Xander.
“Right, that’s it. No more playing. I have better things to do,” Spike said as he swept the demon’s legs out from under him. Grinning, he reached down and snapped the neck. He turned and watched as Xander thrust his sword into the other demon, letting him fall. He snorted as he listened to Xander mutter about how he could have taken the demon. Dru didn’t respond, just laughed and knelt next to the dying demon. She studied him for a moment before dipping the tips of her fingers in its blood.
“Um, Dru? What are you doing?” Xander asked, shooting a glance at Spike, who shrugged. He loved Dru, had for over a hundred years, but he wouldn’t deny that she was completely insane.
It kept things interesting.
“He paints such pretty colors. Can’t you see them?” Dru said, dragging her fingers through the air and making invisible patterns. “I could make a rainbow.”
“Why don’t we save the rainbow for later, Dru?” Spike frowned when she ignored this. “Come on, Princess. What fun is a rainbow with only one kind of blood?”
Dru paused at this and then turned towards Spike as a light breeze blew strands of hair across her face. “Buckets and buckets of blood for me to paint with…” Her eyes lit up at the thought as Xander wrinkled his nose.
“And on that note, I think I’m going to head home. That’s so not something I need to see. Ever,” he said.
Spike didn’t argue since this was the easiest solution for the three of them. Spike and Dru went out with Xander to help patrol (as long as it was away from Buffy) and Xander didn’t say anything when they went off to find something to eat. His only request had been that they not kill the people they took blood from. It worked for all of them.
“She shines blue, Spike.” Dru stood. “Can we have her?”
Spike followed her gaze. “Yeah, luv, you can have her.” He turned back to Xander. “We’ll meet you in an hour,” he added, turning to go. He paused. “One last thing.”
Xander was cut off as Spike yanked him forward and pressed his mouth against his. Xander moaned as Spike’s tongue wrapped around his and he felt cool hands go up and under his shirt.
“Such a pretty picture,” Dru whispered from behind him as he and Spike pulled a part. “The wind wraps itself around you so you can dance, dance, dance…” She licked up the side of Xander’s neck and he shivered.
Spike stared at him for a moment, taking note of the glazed lust in his eyes, and then grinned. “Changed my mind. We’ll be meeting you in less than an hour,” he decided.
