Summary: "No you don't, but thanks for saying it."
"I
do. And I'm not letting you go."
Response to a challenge by OffYourBird: ‘The Two Ghosts of Wolfram and Hart’.
“Spike tells Buffy to leave him in Chosen but, this time, she doesn't... and out pop two ghosts in Angel's office nineteen days later. How does Buffy being in W&H as ghost #2 affect AtS season 5? What kind of shenanigans does our ghost duo get up to? ...Angsty, fluffy, smutty (answering the question of if ghosts can touch each other!) - whatever genre you like, so long as it has a happy Spuffy end.”

Probably heading into the territory of melancholic despair at some stage, be warned. But happy ending guaranteed! It's in the challenge requirements after all ;)
Spoilers through AtS S5.
Bihaldan is Old English - 'to hold', or to keep/occupy/conceal/rescue/retain. And is also the origin of 'behold' - to see, to look at, or to instruct someone to look at.
