Death of the Green Fairy

"It's like before but different. No pretty spectacles or curls and no heart's blood scratched into paper, tearing holes into your soul with every broken word. No growling Daddy picking up the broken doll to take him home to fix him up as good as new, or as bad. No heart's desire, no want this in the dark that smells of horses and of shit and shame and need."

Xander curled tighter within Spike's arms.

"I don't like the world without you, Spike, don't want it. Take it back?"

The bottle smashed against the wall.

"It's gone, love, all gone."
