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."

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.
