Cause and Effect

Cause and EffectSpike scented the air as Dawn handed him a mug. "You're hurt."

Holding up a hand, she showed Spike the cut across her knuckles. "I hit Principal Wood."

"In the face?"

Dawn nodded.

"The human mouth harbours some nasty bacteria, love. Let's get that seen to before you lose a hand." Spike applied Betadine and a novelty band-aid to the wound. "Want to tell me about it?"

"I told him he hurt you again I'd kill him."

"I did kill his Mum."

"He needed to know that hurting you hurts me the same way."

Spike kissed her forehead. "My hero."

Well, I like the idea of hitting Principal Wood, just on principle but this was a darn good reason.

Great drabble.

And I didn't even resort to using a stick.

LOL, we spawn shippers just insist on seeing things another way.

Good one.

We know who the smart sister is and we know Spike has more bloody sense. What more is there to know?

Thanks. Took a while for the muse to get it's finger out, but sometimes it's worth the wait.

Re: smashing
Wood should consider himself lucky she used her fists.

now there's a perspective i can sympathise with. i think thats the first 'real' image i've seen you use in an icon. oh wait, apart from the streets of rome...blast, grrr....
redwolf

Happy you like it.

I use lots of real images in icons. A lot aren't fandom based either. You're just after gorish icons, those I'll have to see abaout.

You know me so well, i'm always after gorish anything. Was it paint, in that icon? Of the fist? Looked like paint, being squeezed from a cloth maybe?

I don't usually comment in friends' of friends journals because I don't want to freak people out who don't know me, and I rarely feedback on drabbles, but I absolutely loved the sweet and tender simplicity of this. I read it last night and it has stayed with me ever since. Really lovely.

I like how Spike is so practical about treating Dawn's wounds, but he's also tender at the same time. The "novelty band-aid" made me smile. :)

There's a house full of teenage girls and Andrew is probably doing the shopping, I'd imagine novelty band-aids are more of a draw than the regular. I'm quite fond of novelty band-aids too.
