Calm Before The Storm

Calm Before The StormSpike's avoidance of Buffy throughout the week had won him Dawn's approbation and, more importantly, a breather in which to fully heal.

While still casting wistful looks in Buffy's direction, Dawn also noted that Spike was steady in his resolve to honour his word. Although she suspected his promise to her meant far more to him than did concern for his own welfare.

Unfortunately, Buffy was getting impossible to live with. Twitchy and irritable, she had started to lash out at those around her. Sooner or later her sister would crack and Dawn feared it would be sooner rather later.
