All characters belong to their rightful owners, not the author.
Spike watched silently in futile desire every time Buffy bit into a juicy hamburger, Xander dipped fries in ketchup, and Willow nibbled chocolate. The loss of savoring food was another sacrifice. The flavors had never been the same after he'd turned. That didn't stop him from cooking or from letting his Nibblet enjoy what he couldn't.
One morning, when he served Dawn fluffy pancakes drowning in golden, maple syrup like he'd enjoyed in his youth, Spike was unprepared for her gratitude. He licked his lips after she kissed him. Now, that
truly was a taste to savor throughout the ages!
