"Good morning to you too." Dawn received a very thorough wake up kiss. "So what happens now?" She felt rather than saw the answering shrug.
"Staying in bed with you for the foreseeable future is as far as I care to think at the moment."
Planting a fond kiss on his forehead, Dawn sighed. "I meant do you want to stay in Rome or do you want me to join you in LA?"
Pulling back to properly look at Dawn, Spike studied her face. It was so familiar, a little older, more mature, perhaps, but still essentially his Dawn. "Bugger that. How about we hit the road?"
A road trip was good idea, but Dawn really wanted to the chance to play tourist rather than just seeing the countryside through a car window. "I'd like to go somewhere where we can just wander around at our leisure, go to museums and art galleries and libraries. Look at old buildings, that kind of thing."
"Europe? Asia?" He settled back and pulled Dawn into his arms.
"I'd like to see more of Europe, it's been all hotel rooms and research. I'd love to see Paris and Amsterdam and Berlin and London and —"
"Okay, love. One at a time," Spike chuckled in amusement.
Dawn groaned. "I can't see Giles and the Council parting with money for a holiday and I'd like to get away from all of that for a while. So I guess it's just a nice thought."
"Not necessarily. I know a place we can crash in London that's out from under the Council's watch, so let's start there, shall we."
"Deal." Dawn straddled Spike and sealed their bargain with a kiss.
