Exchange

ExchangeHolding Spike's hand, his fingers warm from her body heat, Dawn applied the final touches to his now black, thank you very much, fingernails. She blew gently on his nails, surprised at the moan her soft breath had drawn from Spike.

Looking up from her work, Dawn met Spike's eyes, bright with lust. Her first thought was something Janice had said; boys could be friends or boyfriends, and if they were boyfriends they may never be friends again.

Swallowing that small niggle of doubt, Dawn leaned in and met Spike's lips. Sometimes following your heart was worth taking a risk.

If you're gonna make a move on a guy, it might as well be when you're applying their nailpolish ^_^ Loved this, more please. Bye, Weds

It's not like they can do much when they're still tacky, is it.

This is one of those sets of drabbles where I never planned to write a second, so continuation is at the behest of the muse. I won't promise that I'll write more, but the muse is trying to avoid a ficathon entry and looking for excuses, so you may be in luck.

Thank you. I wasn't planning to go here, so I don't know if it's going further. Ah, the fun of unexpected challenges.

Janice seemed the perfect choice for this advice, nobody, other than Spike, seemed to have time for Dawn. Many thanks.

Oh! Ohohoh! I loved this one. Just. So true. And something I've been thinking about lately. And... I could just feel it.

(Also, I see there's a whole "Hand!verse" of its own now! Whee! I feel special, to have spawned something worthy of its own memory category. ;) )

I never intended to continue, but the muse is procrastinating over something else and seems obsessed with hands at the moment. Funny, it's usually leather pants and sharp, shiny things.
