Author: darkhavens
Pairing: S/X
Rating: G
Summary: Aaaaaaaaaaw
Spoilers: None

It lived under the mattress. Pushed way, way to the middle of the bed, up under the pillows where it couldn’t be noticed if, say, the weight of two people, bouncing wildly, was to land awkwardly on a corner.

It only came out after all the precautions had been taken: bolts slid home, door chain secured, TV or radio turned off so he couldn’t miss the first tell-tale sounds of company arriving.

It was more precious than any family bible; it was his deepest, darkest secret.

Spike settled on the bed and reverently opened his notebook.

An Ode, to Xander

Aww, his poetry is still his deepest darkest secret - poor Spike.

::hugs Spike::

This was really nice, wonder what the ode said...

Thank you. It popped full-blown into my head as soon as I saw the challenge. It was the first post in the new challenge cos it just fell out of my fingertips.

And, as always seems to happen when I answer these drabble challenges, there is a drabblefic brewing... o.O

Aw, you know you always end up feeding the author anyways, you just have to do it direct when I bug you to 'just have a quick look at this'. ;op
