Sighing heavily, Spike opened his eyes, blinking several times to clear them. When hewas fully able to see, he found himself staring up into a blue sky with the rays of twosuns burning down upon him."Aah!" Spike screamed as he jumped up, looking around for shelter. He was standingin an open grassy field. The only shelter he could see was a forest of trees, far in thedistance."What is it, Spike?" Drusilla said from the ground. "You're making too much noise.I'm tired."Her voice snapped him out of his panic enough to notice he was not becoming a pileof ash. "What the...?"Turning his hand one way, then the next, Spike watched as the sun played over it,amazed. He looked down at Drusilla, bathed in sunlight. He couldn't believe his eyes."Dru?" he said in a choked whisper.Drusilla moved her arm and looked up at him. "Spike, you're all lit up."*****"Ok. Here's what we have: a pocket knife, a lighter, chapstick, two guitar picks, threecombs, a bottle of black nailpolish, a pack of gum, a candy bar, six crosses, a smallvial of holy water, eight stakes and 78 cents in change," Buffy said as she lookeddown at the small pile in front of her."We also have water," Giles said, pointing to the pond. "It's fresh.""Right. Water, check," Buffy said."Buff, I want to know how you managed to hide
stakes on your body, when allyou're wearing is a pair of jeans and a crop top," Xander said."Talent, Xander. And lots of practice," Buffy responded with a smile."I'm glad we have a lighter," Willow said. "It'll make it easier to start a fire. I haven'tlearned how to do that yet in my studies of witchcraft.""That's ok, Will," Oz said, putting an arm around his girlfriend."So, what now?" Cordelia asked from her perch on a rock near the pond."I would suggest we gather some wood and prepare to spend the night here," Gilessaid. "I don't know how much longer we'll have daylight."
