It was the little things that hurt the most, like tiptoeing by Buffy's door only to remember there was no way for her to check on her. It wasn't the lack of presents or jovial spirits. It wasn't the failure to buy for her family.

It started, instead, the first time she poured herself a glass of eggnog. A drop of the creamy liquid splashed the table, and no one scolded her. Spike looked forlornly at her and reached for a towel. Her chin trembled. Her lips quivered. Her tears began. He dropped the towel and held on to her.

The End

Awwww. I love stories where Spike is comforting Dawn.

I'm a sucker for them, too. I just like Spawn -- rather they're romantic or just the best of unlikely friends.
