Theme: Five Firsts: First Kiss
Disclaimer: They belong to Joss Whedon, not me.
Author's Note: I'm finally catching up, as promised! And I swear I won't be this late with this upcoming round.
It wasn’t one of those typical first kisses. Though if you went by the fact that he was now dating not one but two vampires, maybe it was. He’d been pissed because of his dad and he’d been muttering about things he sometimes wanted to do but never would because the guy was still his dad. And of course, his muttering was interrupted.
“Such pretty Spike thoughts. You’re letting it out more and more, kitten.”
Xander paused and glanced over at Dru, who had appeared on his left. Just beyond her, Spike stood, studying him with a look that was entirely too calculating for Xander’s peace of mind.
“It? What it?” he asked. “What am I letting out?”
Dru smiled. “You know,” she said, her voice vague.
Xander scowled. She probably did it on purpose. Yeah, Dru was probably much more sane than she let on, but she wanted to drive him crazy as well so she was deliberately vague. That was it.
“Don’t let the riddles get to you. Eventually you learn to figure them out. Even if that one was the most obvious one I’ve heard her say in years,” Spike told him.
“Just because you’ve had a hundred years to figure them all out...”
“A storm...would you like me to calm you down?” Dru trailed a hand down his arm, stopping him and all Xander could do was wonder what she wanted to do. He didn’t have to wonder for long though because suddenly Dru’s lips were on his, cool and soft. He tensed for a moment before relaxing into the kiss. It wasn’t wild, which surprised him, but it was still demanding, searching, as if she knew he had secrets and was determined to find them out through his mouth. Vaguely, he registered Dru pulling away and running a nail from his temple to his neck.
“Very...um, effective,” was all Xander could think to say.
Spike snorted, yanking him over. “We’re not done yet.” And then it was Spike’s lips and they were just as cool and soft but there was something very different about his kiss. Spike kissed him as if he were reading him, as if he were meant to be explored, not as if he needed to be searched. He didn’t realize that he was close to just coming apart right there until Spike’s grip tightened on him as if to keep him there. Then Spike was pulling away and kissing Dru and it was wild and full of love, love that he’d once thought vampires incapable of.
“Don’t feel left out now, luv. You’re ours, you’re family,” Dru whispered and Xander felt something tremble inside him before it clicked in place. Family. Theirs. He nodded, a knowing grin on his face but it was all he had time for before they were both there and kissing him and then all Xander could think was that he could definitely get used to this.
