Lovely story, Lilichigh! I'm sorry it took me so long to read it but I've been very under the weather lately, and it seems to be quite a heavy storm. Thanks for the entertainment.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review, especially as you haven't been well. I do hope you are in calmer waters very soon!

A lovely tender moment. It was a shame they never addressed this question on the show. Their S7 Buffy internalised her feelings far too much and tended to pretend the whole relationship with Spike hadn't happened after that outburst in 'Beneath you'.
Yes, that's exactly what I feel. I just wanted them to talk about what had happened. Just for a couple of seconds would have been enough! Glad you enjoyed the little fic. I think Season 7 is grossly underwritten by most of us.

Nice story. I'm glad they had that conversation. It was never really covered in canon.
Thank you! Yes, that always annoyed me. It was obvious that they would have had to talk about it sometime. Glad you enjoyed the little fic.

What a sweet interlude! Love this and wish they had a moment of such a conversation in canon because it was needed. You only let them touch on it (and I think that IS as far as they'd go at that point).
"Being careful not to rock the boat, Spike eased himself down so he was stretched out next to her, taking care not to get too close." How wonderfully you have the physical echo the emotional here! He is walking on egg shells, not rocking the boat of the peace between them, the tentative friendship. He is also guarding his own heart by not letting himself get too close either in body or otherwise. BRILLIANT!
Thank you! I can always rely on you to read the understory as well as the plot! You can't always explain it to people.

Lovely.. Buffy trying to let Spike knows she cares.. him making sure he keeps his distance yet letting her know..
And finally.. the touching.. and the feeling of being in the arms of someone that loves you.. even though they didn't quite say it..
