Drabble: Counting...

I couldn't survive Valentine's Day without the antidote. This years anti-Valentine is...


Counting… A drabble by Bogwitch


23:55

Five minutes to go. Twenty-three hours of waiting.

She isn’t coming. Spike knows that he should have guessed, but his stupid heart always hopes anyway.

23:56

Even if she does turn up now, it’s too late – some romantic she was.

23:57

He wonders if she’s been delayed. Perhaps something nasty decided tonight was good for a little mayhem.

23:58

It was more than sex, wasn’t it? He thought he’d meant something to her. Bloody women.

23:59

One minute and he’ll know.

00:00

Fine. Angel was right again; he was too optimistic to hope that Illyria would understand Valentine’s Day.


ETA: I forgot to say The canteen at work went all out today. We all had heart-shaped shortbread and all the women got a flower. I repressed my queasyness and partook of the free stuff. :)

Poor, poor Spike.

But lovely drabble! His heart is always on his sleeve.

I think he know it was a longshot.

most fun...except for Spike, clearly

Poor Spike, he keeps making the same mistakes.

Yay! There is not enough Spillyria fic in the world.

I've had a nightmare of a time thinking I could pair him with this year as I've already done Illyria, Harmony and Buffy Valentines fics/drabbles/events.

This started out as Buffy, but Illyria was funnier. :)

Poor Spike. He really knows how to pick 'em, don't he? *g*

Sometimes, a man just gets lonely...

So good! I actually thought it was about Buffy to the last line. :)

Hee. You fell into my cunning trap!

*snerk* Poor Spike. Always so optimistic.

And always picks the wrong ones!

Awww. He's a hopeless romantic, he is. Illyria, not so much. Great anti-Valentine.

I don't think she undestands the fudamentals - like showing up.

You got me. I thought it was Buffy. Hee. So Spike.

Hey. Free food is free food, heart shaped or not.

I couldn't resist that twist.

How could I refuse?

I love this! Poor little Spike, always choosing the crazy ones. :D

I also love, love, love your icon. Is it a sharable one? Ha! Did you notice how many times I used the word L-O-V-E in this comment? Tee-hee. A very merry un-Valentine's day to you, Miss Bogwitch. *kisses your cheek before darting for the door*

She's emotionally cold and distant, she's skinny and she's powerful, she has a superiority complex...

The icon is shareable, it was from my icon advent calendar.

Poor Spike, but definitely, Illyria doesn't seem to be of the romantic type. :)

She'll take him out to fight something and she'll forget all about it.

Boy, Spike knows how to pick 'em. *g*

Personally, between you and me, I think rather dodgy taste.

Ehehehe... that was unexpected!

Another falls into the trap!

Aw - poor Spike!
I read this yesterday, but LJ wouldn't let me comment on anything, only read things!

She'll turn up eventually and make it up with a tentacle or two.

You tease!
It was fun . Do you think Spike is the kind of guy wanting to celebrate Valentine ? Maybe with Drusilla , bringing her pretty girls all dressed up . ;-)

;)

I think Spike would do whatever his girl wanted. But he must secretly hope...
