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 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.
