Look at me - I'm drabbling!

"How's that cramp, Spike?"

I had a hard time keeping the shock and surprise out of my voice as I answered. I'm not sure I managed.

"How's that cramp?" This from the bird that wouldn't say boo; meek, mild-mannered Miss Maclay?

I look at her and I realise, I'd never really looked or seen before. Her shy demeanor, her habit of hiding behind her hair - an effective smokescreen, that. Allowing her to work steadily, unobtrusively, towards her goal of letting the light in, making it reach the farthest corners. This girl is anything but weak; she's strong, made of steel, and observant. She finds her strength within her heart, with which she loves, without judgeing, without fear. And with a profound sense of humour.

"How's that cramp, Spike?"
I think it may just be starting up again -- for you, pet.

And me! But I always had the feeling that of the Scoobies, Tara was the only one who saw something of the true value of Spike as well.

Thanks for reading, BTW.

Yeah - I know I'm being silly but...I just never thought it would be so hard to give up a few lines to the world. I'm still tempted to delete the whole entry!

Who knows? Although I must admit that this kind of response is quite encouraging, I'm not sure inspiration will strike again soon...This may just have been a fluke, I don't know.

Just saying - don't get your hopes up.
