BtVS S6, Post Tabula Rasa. Spike takes his own course of action, trying to become a better man for his slayer.
Set sometime after Tabula Rasa. With Giles’ departure, and her growing attraction to Spike, Buffy can’t resist the offer of answers to her questions, but will the answers be what she expects?
Buffy is broken, and Spike is determined to again make her whole by giving her what she needs most: an ear to bend, a shoulder to cry on, and, most importantly, someone who understands.
