For over a hundred years, every time Dru shivered, Spike was there, putting his jacket around her shoulders. She'd never noticed until the night he didn't.

The night wasn't even cold. It had been a shiver of premonition. The tide was going out, exposing the barren expanse of the beach.

His cigarette hissed as it hit the waves. She hissed too, but he didn't hear.

She picked up a seashell and held it to her ear but couldn't make out the voices. It didn't matter. She could see in how he'd changed toward her.

The tide was carrying him away.

Aww. Nice, kinda sad little fic.

Thank you. I tend to think Dru saw that Spike was leaving before she let him go. Figured it would be melancholy for her.

Awesome icon. That was such a funny scene!

I agree with you that she saw their break-up coming. She mentions in a flashback that she can see the Slayer all around him, and I think that refers to him starting to fall in love with Buffy.

And thanks! I'm not the only one around who has this icon. Sometimes we see each other's comments and get confused. :P

Huh. I tend to feel for her, to figure she saw it coming and let him go because he'd already left her even if he didn't know it yet.

Love it when Dru is not being crazy.

Thank you. I didn't even notice that. I was just writing Dru and not thinking whether she was crazy or not. ;-)
