Summary: Season Five. Riley's just left town, and when Spike is gravely injured saving Buffy's life on a nightly patrol, he needs help. Buffy, indebted, takes the wounded Spike into her care. An borderline fluffy romance.
Rated R, for now because there isn't any sexy stuff yet (I'm still writing it), but it will be subject to change later on. You have been warned.
 
WINNER! BEST CHARACTERIZATION (BUFFY)
NOMINATED BEST DRAMA, BEST PAIRING (CONVENTIONAL), BEST PLOT- SPUFFY, BEST ROMANCE and BEST UNFINISHED at SUNNYDALE MEMORIAL FANFICTION AWARDS
Author's Note: This story has not been abandoned. It has been put on the back burner. My other story is just taking up most of my brain at the moment. It will be updated!

Ok guys, this is one I've been working on for a while, but have only just decided to post it. i am still (almost) finishing Bad and Drowning In You, so they will take priority, and this is my first really angsty fic (apart from my one shot Cold Comfort, but still, that was more just depressing), so I'm posting the first chapter as a trial run. Please let me know what you think, I do have more chapters ready to post, and would love to know if you want to read more.

I think I've rambled long enough, Please Review!

Hi guys, I am so sorry it as taken me so long to update, but things have been hectic of late, what with work and other obligations. Team that with a serious case of LTB writer's block, and I'm seriously behind. I'll try to be more frequent from now on. :) Please review :D
