Love the chapter!  My one beef is the use of the term  "karate moves".  By "slicing her hands",I can only assume you meant a knife hand strike (shuto-uchi) but it also sounds like she punched.  If you or your betas don't know martial arts, just use generic kicks and punches. We readers will get the idea.  But we martial artists do not like generic terms for non specific techniques.  
LOL!  Yeah, sorry about the poor fighting terms.  I'll admit that it's laziness on my part and bad writing, not to do research in this area.  I have no clue about martial arts and any set of waving of the arms in fighting looks like karate moves to me. 

I'll keep you comments in mind for future stories if with fight scenes in them.

Hi Dawnie

I spotted it was on 199 and I gave you review 200 in SR so here I am doing it again!

I know I'm listed as a beta but I can still let you (and everyone else) know that I love this fic!

LOL!  Thank you for helping me break 200!

I'm so glad you enjoy reading this. Helps when beta'ing if you like the story.

oh poor crushed Spike. Hope he says something soon so that Buffy can clarify . Don't want him to hold it in and then have it blow whe the tie is n0t right
Thanks for reading.  I know, it's awful what he thinks, but it makes for good reading

Nice plot advance  - knew something was going to go wrong  - One thing that really needs to happen for Spike is that with that ring he has to understand that big responsibility comes with it -

Hope that he can control his rage and talk to Buffy about this plan of action for getting that ring back instead of having everything that is starting to go right for them turn into a huge fight -
Thank you.

Sigh. Secrets. It never works out people!

A very exciting chapter! Some good action, a little romance, some flirting and now a new demon to fight! Plus, the required misunderstandings . . .
Thank you.  I'm glad you enjoyed all the elements.

please don;t make spike lose the ring, that happens in EVER story . be original and let the vampire be able to keep his only means of walking in the sun
I haven't read too many Gem of Amara stories, so I have no idea how most of the end.  But, I won't give any spoilers away.  I'll just say, please keep on reading.

ugh, i can't believe what an idiot giles is.  buffy told him she couldn't do that, and he just assumes that her getting closer to spike is just an act, well, i hope he gets very disappointed when he finds out it's not.  he's helping them out, and giles still thinks that spike is a threat, dumbass.  i hope giles gets a taste of reality soon, before spike does really do something stupid.  him and buffy just need to have a decent conversation, and she needs to tell him that she's pregnant.  i'm waiting impatiently for that.
Giles is just being the watcher he is.

This is awful.  I hope that somehow Buffy and Spike talk this out.  Things were going so well.  I have faith that something good will happen.. Nice chapter even with the hurt feelings.
Thank you.  Yes, it's awful, but I promise to make it better.    Thanks for having faith in me.

Awww, poor Spike. She loves you really!! I hope she gets a chance to explain. Great update, Dawn!
  Thank you. 

I know, I pulled a Joss on you all, but I promise not to turn into him completely.  I'm a true Spuffy fan.
