Then I saw the familiar blond head that didn't look like Buffy or Tara's and I knew it was not.
It was Spike. He leaned over me and tightened the ropes on my wrists. Ouchie. "Well Red, guess who I happened to run into?"
"Your mother?" I rolled my eyes.
He flipped out his zippo lighter lighting his cigarette and blew smoke in my face. "No, the Slayer and your blondie witchy girlfriend. Have to say she was quite feisty."
I narrowed my eyes ignoring the smoke. "What did you do to them?"
He snickered and smirked in my face. "Not what I did, but what my lizard friends are going to do. I think you met them before you know." He leaned in very close. "Though now that we're alone, I think we can finally get to know each other better, doncha think?"
I gulped, twisting my head away. "No, I think I know you well enough."
He slapped me. "You'll show some respect to your happy host!"
I flinched a little. It really stung but I couldn't start crying. He'd really go for it then. I mean he might still go for it, but I was trying to be a brave little toaster as Xand often called me. "Respect? I don't think you deserve anything of that Spike. And you know they are coming for me."
Oops. Wrong move. He grabbed me from the ropes and threw me down to the ground hard. "We'll just see about that."
I tried to crawl away but he dragged me by the leg. "Ohh, no can't be running away now love, we've got work to do."
He picked me up by the throat. I could feel myself losing oxygen. "You and me, we're going to have a little fun. You're going to do a spell see. The lizard men well they'll take care of your friends and that annoying bint the Slayer, and then well they'll come back. I'll bleed 'em and you'll well you'll do your whatever, mojo and use their blood to infuse their being into me and I'll be impervious to the light."
"And if I refuse?"
He threw me down hard. "Let's just say you'll be bled to death. Still I think I like the latter myself. Always wanted to taste you Red." He then grabbed me and threw me against the wall again. Ok I'm pretty sure this is going to leave a mark.
He moved forward very quickly I might add and then threw me on top of his crypt bed. He got right on top of me and started to tear at my clothes. Hard. Oh goddess, no no I thought. Anything but this. I squirmed as much as I could. "No, please! I'll do whatever you want, no"
He pinned my shoulders down, my shirt collar ripping. "Oh beg all you want, I love it when you scream."
I tried to move my legs. I was able to a little bit and I managed to knee him solidly in the crotch. He grimaced and fell backwards off of me. I tried to make it to the door but he got up. "Oh. No. You don't you stupid bint!" He charged and threw me down.
I don't know what was going to happen next but I just kept thinking it'll be over soon.
