Warmth
By KindKit

Vampires are cold all through. They lust, they fuck, they kill, they feed, but love vanishes with the soul.

All Giles' training insists on this. But then there are the things that he knows.

Spike smiles differently, secretly, for him. Reminisces with him about '70s pop groups. Leans into his touch. Sometimes even makes him a cup of tea.

Spike's body warms from contact, during sex and afterwards, when they lie cradled together under the duvet. He could almost be human, then.

Giles holds Spike's warm body, his dead soulless body, and tries to span the gap between his knowledges.
