then, how'd I get stuck with the two of you," Spike said as he led the two
Xander's back to his, well, their apartment. Red thought she might be able to
fix them in a day or two, but someone had to keep them out of trouble in the
meantime. Spike wondered if the rest of them realized the irony of having him
keep the Xanders out of trouble.
took him a second to realize he was talking to himself. He whirled around and
saw them in a park next to the road with the shy one being pushed on the swing.
"What the hell are you two doing?" he snapped as he walked toward
them. "You get eaten by something and I'm the one who'll get staked."
don't stop yelling at him and I'll be the one to stake you," Xan said as
bent over to comfort Xander, who had started to tear up when Spike yelled at

one. "And you, quit being such a
ponce and let's get going."

done," Xan said, ignoring Spike's glare. "He'll be done in a few

crossed over his chest and finally sighed heavily when poncy Xander's lip
started to quiver. It reminded him of
Dru. "Fine, finish swinging."
was another five minutes before they were ready to continue onto the apartment,
and Xander seemed a lot happier when he got off the swing. "Thanks,
Spike," Xan said as they started walking. "He needed a break from
everything going on tonight. I'm inside him to keep him from getting

lighting it up and taking a deep drag.
you fucking asshole. We're both twenty-two, but we each got different traits
when we were split apart. He needed some time on a swing to calm down. You
better not forget that I won't have any problem dusting you if you piss me
off," Xan answered with a smirk.
call you pissy Xander from now on," Spike said, but he was laughing."Want a fag, mate?"
offering?" Xan asked, purposely misinterpreting spike's comment as he let
his eyes roam up and down the vampire. "And it's Xan unless you want me to
see how inventive I can get with names for you Deadrunt"
I'm offering. Know what it's like to
crave one, Xan," Spike snorted, putting a sarcastic emphasis on his name.
are you doing?" Xander whispered. He was pulling on Xan's sleeve and had
his twin between him and Spike. "He's mean remember? He'll try to hurt
protecting us, Xander," Xan said with an indulgent sigh."And if tries to hurt us, I'll stake
him in the balls, then the heart."
we know which one of you got the balls," Spike said. He was realizing he
could tease, but he'd have to be careful. Somehow he didn't think Xan would be
too upset about staking him if he posed a real threat.
don't forget it, blondie," Xan smirked.
He was enjoying the verbal sparring with Spike a lot, especially since
the Scoobies normally didn't treat him with any form of respect.
the mention of 'blondie', Spike sniped back and the two of them argued all the
way back to the apartment with Xander trailing behind. "Maybe we should
leave him outside the door," he whispered to Xan once they were at the

on or give him a book and he'll amuse himself."
can't leave me outside, Spike. This is my apartment, too," Xander said as
he quickly edged past Spike and ran to get the remote.
at least we know he can talk," Spike muttered under his breath.Even though Xander seemed to be less shy
around him for some reason, he was still annoyingly introverted and that's why
Spike preferred Xan's company.
I'm going to go take a nap with Spike," Xan said once the TV was on and he
had found cartoons. "If you want to take a nap, sleep out here on the
not gonna leave?" Xander stopped watching television and looked up at his
twin with imploring eyes.
neither of us goes anywhere outside the apartment without the other for
now," Xan said. His tone changed totally when he talked to his twin.
"Just watch some cartoons and if you really, really need me you can yell
for me, okay?"
okay," Xander agreed almost uncertainly, then his eyes shifted to Spike
before they darted away. "He
doesn't look tired."
on, pet, watch the cartoons and Xan and I will be out in," Spike paused
and looked Xander over. "In twenty minutes or so if I'm any judge."
both might be virgins, but that didn't mean Xan had to stay that way
anymore. Spike was sure as hell more
than willing to relieve him of the status.
"Be good, Xander," Xan said again and started to push Spike
towards the bedroom.
Xan," Spike said once they'd gotten in the bedroom. "Which side of
the bed do you sleep on?"
sprawled down the middle," Xander shrugged. "Not interested in
thought you had it in you, Xan," Spike smirked as he crowded up against
Xan. "In fact, I bet you never thought you'd have it in you either."
He started nuzzling Xan's neck as he talked. The little shivers of fear
combined with lust coming from the boy were intoxicating.
been wanting to get laid for ages," Xan sighed and unconsciously bared his
neck to Spike. "It's Xander that's
been holding me back since Anya left."
hmm," Spike mumbled. Now that he had Xan where he wanted him there was no
reason to keep talking. He pushed Xan back on the bed without moving his mouth
from his neck. He started pulling clothes off both of them as soon as they were
both on the bed.
already liking sex with you," Xan moaned happily as he was stripped.
seen nothing yet," Spike said. He looked down on Xan spread out below him.
He wanted to take his time, but he had a feeling Xander would be knocking on
the door if they were in the bedroom too long. With that in mind he kissed Xan
until he was desperate for air then started licking down his torso.
shit," Xan hissed and tried to grasp onto Spike's head as the vampire
licked and sucked at his nipples. He
was frustrated when he couldn't get a hold on the short hair. "More!"
slid down Xan's body and deep throated him with one swallow. Spike grinned
around Xan's cock when the boy was immediately reduced to incoherent
mutterings. He kept his head moving at a steady pace while he reached over to
snag his duster and pull some lube out of one of the pockets. He was sure Xan
was still too out of it to realize when he started to press one finger into

the sense to grab a pillow and bite into the fabric. He didn't want to frighten Xander, but the feelings were
overwhelming as Spike started to play with his ass.
kept working his fingers around until he had three inside the boy. Satisfied he
was stretched enough he sped up the movement of his mouth on Xan's cock while
brushing his prostrate repeatedly. Just to make sure the chip didn't go off he
was going to wait until just after Xan came before he started fucking him.

pushed against his prostrate a few more times before he felt him tense up
before cumming. Spike swallowed it down quickly. The only thing better then
fresh cum was fresh blood. While Xan was still twitching from the aftershocks,
he scooted up and slid smoothly into him. "Perfect," he hissed once
he was all the way in.

the bed. Just because he hadn't had sex
with a man before, that didn't mean he hadn't thought about it… a lot!

possible. His other hand was stroking Xan's returning erection. "Gonna
make sure you remember this."
my first, I'll always remember it, but shut the hell up," Xan said, but he
wouldn't let mushy crap interrupt this and added, "Now get on with it,
blondie. Make me feel it!Make me feel whole again!"
hadn't been a twinge from his chip yet, so Spike braced himself and started
really pounding into Xan. Hard enough to mix a hint a pain in with the
pleasure. From the way the boy's cock started jerking on it's own he knew he'd
made the right choice. He wondered if he'd be able to bite him at the end or if
he was going to have to bite his own arm.
started to pump his cock with the rhythm that Spike set.A part of him had always been drawn to the
erotic, enigmatic beauty of vampires.
The part of his old personality that was in the living room watching
cartoons had instilled fear and wariness, but now he could give into his dark
dreams. "Change…" Xan
was in game face and was gliding his fangs over Xan's throat before he'd
finished talking. He'd pushed the boy's hand to the side when he moved, but he
knew the bite alone would be more then enough to take him over the brink. He
was too turned on to try to draw it out any further. His fangs sunk in and he
started the very slow pull that was the most erotic bite a vampire could give.
couldn't help but draw in a sharp intake of breath as he felt the fangs slip
into his flesh. He didn't think there'd
be anything sweeter than Spike's cock taking him, but this topped even
that. He felt dizzy and his cock
started to twitch in a long, drawn out orgasm that wasn't even over after he'd
split all of his cum.
kept the slow pull going for as long as was safe. The combination of fresh
blood and Xan involuntary milking him as he continued to come was too good to
give up a moment sooner then he had to. Finally, he pulled this fangs out and
licked the bite closed before collapsing. "Now that was a bloody good
he followed me home…" Xan muttered stupidly with a slack grin plastered on
his face. "Can I keep him?"
chucked as he gave Xan a few more lazy thrusts before pulling out. "Much
as I'd like to that all night, the shy one's going to wonder what' we're doing
here," he said as flopped down on the bed and pulled Xan on top of him.
"You are a nummy treat though, pet."
call me pet, cause I’m the kind of pet that bite's back…" Xan smirked and
then chopped down firmly on Spike's fleshy shoulder.
Spike howled out as he came again. He hadn't been expecting that, and the boy
was a fast learner to top it off. Once he had broken the skin he'd started a
very slow pull that lasted for a good thirty seconds. He could hear Xander
knocking on the door, but didn't care until Xan stopped biting.
in Xander," Xan said lazily, licking the wound and his bloody lips.
"Just finishing up our nap."
door's locked," Xander called from the other side. "I heard Spike
yell. Are you okay?"
more than okay, brother," Xan laughed back, then he looked at Spike and
laughed harder. "It's Spike you
should be worried about. He just bit
off more than he can chew."
started cleaning Xan up. He knew how protective he was of his twin and Spike
knew that was one area not to mess around with. "Get some clothes on and
let's get the two of you some food," Spike said when he was done using a
pillowcase to wipe up.
bad Xander's so sensitive," Xan mused as he pulled on his pants."Bet you wouldn't mind having twins,
think he's ready for the Big Bad, but if he was up for it I wouldn't stop
him," Spike said with a leer as he thought about being in bed with the two

not stupid now am I? I'll leave the boy alone," Spike said. He gave Xan a
quick visual check before he opened the door. There was no hiding the fact that
he looked like he'd just been fucked, but all the clothes were on and there was
not visible mess.
was huddled by the door and literally ran to fling himself at Xan.He hid his face against his twin's neck and
wrapped his arms around him tightly.
"Why did you do it?" he whispered desperately.
Xander, it's okay," Xan said. "We were just having a little bit of
fun. It's alright." He glared at Spike while rocking his twin and trying
to calm him down.
more different now," Xander all but whined. "You trying to leave me
you I wasn't leaving. We're family, but you know I've wanted Spike for a while.
Let's eat some dinner then you and I can go to bed. Spike might sleep with us,
but he'll behave himself," Xan said as he guided his twin to the kitchen.
"You just had to howl," he muttered so low Spike could barely hear
lit up another cigarette and pulled the smoke deep into his chest."Damn right I did, pet," he
answered in his own whisper.
woke up the next morning to Xander crying on the side of the bed and Xan
growling in Spike's direction. "What's this then," he snapped. It had
been hard enough going to bed while it was still dark but now they were waking
him up after the sun had risen.

like if your demon was ripped from you?"
fucking upset him!" Xan yelled as he shoved Spike off the bed.
whoa!" Spike held up his hands in mock surrender. "Gotta do something
about this. Would it help if I fucked

are you talking about, Xander?" Xan asked, stroking his brother's hair.

talking like I claimed him," Spike sputtered.
did something," Xander got out before his eyes rolled back in his head and
Xan screamed at the top of his lungs and clutched his twin to his chest, trying
to wake him.
hell," Spike said. When Xan moved he could see that the bite from last
night was faint but still there. "Give me a sec, pet. I'll figure out what
going to die!" Xan screamed at him.
He petting Xander's face and trying to get his twin to wake."Xander, wake up… please, wake up…
don't leave me alone."
then, we're going to LA, Xan. Take some pillows down to the car for Xander and
open the trunk for me. When you come back to get him we'll go down
together." Going to see his Sire was the last thing Spike wanted to do,
but there was no way he could let the Scoobies know what was going on, and, if
he was right about how to fix Xander, Angel was the best choice.
in the fuck should I listen to you?" Xan yelled. "You're the one
who's trying to kill us!"
I'm trying to make sure he's okay. This is the only way and it has to be
quick." Now that Spike knew there was a bond there, even if it was faint,
he could use it to keep Xan calm.
still mad at you," Xan grumbled as they pulled up outside the hotel.He was standing outside of the trunk, giving
it a good solid thump. "This is a stupid idea. Give me one reason I should find a parking garage and let your
ass out of there…"
sighed inside the trunk. "Because I think I know how to fix Xander. Now
open the bloody trunk before I rip it open."
I open the trunk here you fry, fangless," Xan snapped. "I'm going to
pull around to Deadboy's parking garage."
Spike got out of the trunk he checked on Xander. He was looking worse after the
trip. Xan had picked him up and they headed for Angel's office. "Gotta
invite me in," Spike said from the doorway. He ignored the cheerleader and
the watcher until he was inside. "Put him on the couch, Xan, and
you," he pointed at Cordy. "Go get my poof of a Sire down here."

"Great, two Zeppo's the Great," she huffed and turned to go wake up
Angel. "But I'm telling him it's all your fault!"
still haven't told me what we're doing here, Spike," Xan said as he laid
his twin out on the couch. "You really think Angel can help or is Wesley
going to do a spell or something?"
an idea floating around in my head, but need to talk to Peaches first, don't
I?" Spike admitted. "He always manages to pull something out of the
white hat up his ass to help the innocent and can't more innocent than
Angel growled as he came down the stairs looking half asleep with Cordy
trailing behind him. "Why are you here in the middle of the day with….
Xander and Xander?"
Xan and he's Xander," Xan corrected motioning to his unconscious twin.

'Sire' would get his attention. "They don't need to hear this."
rubbed at his hair and eyes, ending with a grumbled sigh, "Cordy, Wesley,
Gunn… wait in the weapons room. Sharpen
my stakes for me…"
soon as they were out of the room, Spike explained what had happened during the
demon battle that resulted in Xander being split. "Thing is, after the
Scoobies sent me home with them, Xan and I were having a bit of a shag and I
kinda claimed him," he saw Angel start to glower and hurried on.
"That's why he's still mostly okay. They're not stable by themselves and I
think the only way to save Xander is for a vampire to claim him too."
of claimed him?" Angel groused, clutching at the bridge of his nose."You probably didn't even mean to, but
let me guess… you bit him… he drank some of your blood.He's not a whole person and that's probably
why he was claimed so easily."
want him to claim, Xander?" Xan said with a grimace. "You sure that's
the only way?"
way I can figure is Xander will stabilize if he's claimed by another
vampire," Spike explained. "I can't do it, already claimed you and I
don't know any other ball-less vampires."
Xan almost snarled as he moved away from the couch. "He always did like
you I guess, and if it will save him I can deal with being related to

let him die and I'll stake you myself," Xan snarled as he moved into
Angel's personal space.
other one like him?" Angel growled at Xan. He didn't remember Xander being so difficult.
my Xan got all the better traits like a willingness to stake you," Spike
said with a proud smirk. "Other one got all the poofy feelings and
long do you think he has if I don't claim him?" Angel managed a sideways glance at the figure curled up on the
couch. He wondered how long he could
put it off and maybe have Wesley search for another solution.

"You got maybe ten minutes then I'll have to try it, but he don't like me

He already had enough guilt on his soul. He told himself it was only marking, the same that you'd do to
any human minion and there wouldn't be any emotions attached."Fine, but I'm not doing it here,"
Angel growled, already stalking towards the couch. "I'm taking him into my

his way, Xan. You know he'd never hurt a human and we don't have time to be
distracting him." He held onto Xan until he stopped struggling and just
watched Angel carry Xander up the stairs.
set the motionless body down on his bed and had to admit the boy looked near
lifeless against the black, silk sheets.
He sat there for a few seconds just looking at the boy who would soon
carry his mark. Angel reached down and
brushed hair from his clammy forehead.
one like you deserves to die…." he whispered softly.
knew Spike was right when he said Xander didn't have much time so he bent down
and picked a spot where his neck and shoulders met. He hadn't marked or claimed
anyone in all his years as Angel, and he was afraid it was going to prove to be
too much of a temptation. He knew that
when Willow had brought his soul back the spell had been changed. Because
Willow though Buffy was his true love, only Buffy could break the curse, but he
was still worried. Finally, he licked the spot once and let his fangs slide in.
The taste of Xander's blood slammed into him and he'd taken several mouthfuls
before he managed to stop himself. Knowing he'd already marked him as more then
a minion anyway he ripped his wrist open and let a good amount of blood dribble
into Xander's mouth. He didn't want the exchange of blood to be too one sided
or the bond wouldn't save him.
Xander started to slowly and sweetly suck on
the open wound as the blood healed him, even though he was still
unconscious. He made soft whimpering
sounds and tried to draw more blood from the closing cut.
hand Angel was using to hold the back of Xander's head started to move slightly
as his pinky finger began tracing tiny circles on the boy's neck. He thought
about stopping him from continuing to worry blood from the closing wound, but
the needy sounds he was making as he drank were too much for Angel to resist.
after the wound closed, Xander kept sucking on Angel's wrist, slowly waking
up. Angel watched as large, brown eyes
fluttered open and looked at Angel.
Xander didn't jump away in fright or disgust, instead he nuzzled Angel's
wrist and whispered, "More?"
wouldn't be safe for you to have more right now," Angel said almost
regretfully as he laid Xander back on the pillow and started carding his hand
through Xander's hair. The look of disappointment on Xander's face was too much
for him to resist though. "Maybe later," he finally added. "Do
you remember what happened and where you are?"
left me behind for Spike," Xander said quietly and pushed his head up to
meet Angel's hand.
didn't know that would happen. As soon as they realized you were in trouble
they brought you here." Angel looked away, embarrassed. "I know I
should have asked you about this first, but it was the only way, and I was not
sure if you would wake back up on your own."
lips were bright red from the blood and he licked at them lightly. "You
have created a bond this strong if I didn't want you, Xander. It's you who
didn't have a choice," Angel said. The feelings coming through the bond
were full of contentment and both Angel's hands were now running over Xander's
chest and arms without him realizing it.
would've died if you didn't." Xander realized the severity of the
situation. "Xan would've died,
too. You saved our lives."
bound us together, like Spike and Xan are bound, but maybe even stronger.I'll try not to push you. How far you want
to take this is up to you," Angel said. He looked down at Xander and
realized that his hand had moved to start ghosting over the boy's cheek while
he had been talking. He wasn't sure how long he'd be able to restrain himself
if Xander held back. Days were doable, weeks an outside possibility, but
already his body was thrumming with need.
turned his head and started to suck on Angel's fingers shyly."I'm a virgin," he mumbled with
the digits still in his mouth.
you want to stay that way you'd better stop now," Angel growled as he felt
that tongue dance over his fingers. His fingers were now moving slowly in and
out of Xander's mouth, and he knew his eyes had changed to gold. He let some of
the lust he was feeling slip through the bond and smelled the instant increase
not a virgin anymore and his vampire took him," Xander whispered and
looked at Angel with big doe eyes. They were more alluring than any seductive
gaze, but more so because Xander wasn't trying to openly seduce Angel."Unless you don't want me?"
shifted into game face as he straddled the boy. He had to be sure Xander could
handle having a vampire lover before he went any further. When he felt the body
underneath him arch up to meet the kiss, he growled in satisfaction. He nicked
his tongue against his fangs and quickly opened a small cut on Xander's lip.
There was not enough blood to give more then the barest hint of both their
flavors, but it was enough for now. "I want you," Angel said with his
face inches from Xander's after they broke the kiss.
Xander asked hopefully. With the bond
dancing between them, it was the first time he'd felt even vaguely whole since
he'd been separated from Xan.
Angel said as he started removing the boy's clothes. He used his strength to
remove each piece of clothing without letting him up off the bed. It gave him
time to work slowly and bend down to taste different parts of his body as they
I have to do anything?" Xander asked.
His twin had taken all of the assertive emotions, leaving Xander with
only submissive tendencies. He let
Angel undress him and position him however he wanted.
if you want too," Angel said softly. He knew he'd made the right answer
when he saw the trusting look on Xander's face. "Right now you can just
let me take care of things if you want." At Xander's nod he ran a
fingernail lightly up the underside of his cock and grinned when Xander's
breathing sped up.
Xander cried out when Angel started to play with the head of his cock."Always thought about this… with
else did you think about me doing?" Angel asked before grabbing Xander's
hand and sucking one finger into his mouth.
want me to tell you?" Xander squeaked and a dark blush started to rise on
his cheeks. He wasn't like Buffy and he
didn't know what would please this man.
want to know what you'd imagined me doing," Angel said after one last
nibble on the tip of Xander's finger. "I want to make sure you enjoy this
too, because I know whatever we do I'm going to enjoy it."
want more," Xander pouted, as close to a demand as he could get.
Xander was not too worried about what he did as long as he did something, Angel
put one of his own fingers in his mouth. When he pulled it out he rubbed the
few beads of blood over it before offering it to Xander. Once Xander was
focused on sucking any trace of blood off his finger, he twisted and bent down
to nuzzle and lick along his cock.
bucked his hips up and let out a sharp gasp.
Angel was being slow and gentle with him, which was the opposite of what
he imagined Spike was like with Xan.
The feelings were overwhelming and he knew he wanted more, but he
couldn't bring himself to ask for what he desired.
took one last swipe of his tongue up Xander's cock before taking it in his
mouth. At the same time he took his saliva slicked finger out of Xander's mouth
and moved it down to his ass. He moved slowly giving him time to protest if he
didn't protest, instead he spread his legs wide to expose himself better to
Angel questing fingers. He might be
shy, but he knew what he wanted. He
wanted to have everything Xan had experienced, but, on top of that, he wanted
to explore this new draw he felt towards Angel. He didn't know why he did it, but as he shifted his legs apart,
he also tilted his head back to expose his neck.
moaned around the Xander's cock when he felt and saw the boy signal his total
submission. He started stretching him as fast as he could without causing to
much discomfort. There was no way he was getting off the bed to look for lube
so he planned to use Xander's cum.
arched his back off the bed and cried out loudly as he came in Angel's
mouth. His cries of passion could be
heard throughout the hotel, and he didn't care if anyone heard him right now.All he carried about was the wet, cold mouth
around his cock.
savored the taste for a minute before pulling off him. He watched Xander twitch
lazily under him as the aftershocks of his orgasm kept hitting him. He bit down
hard on his tongue and mixed a decent amount of blood with the boys cum before
using it cover his own cock. He knew the blood would ensure there wouldn't be
any damage if he got a little rough. Seeing that Xander was starting to focus
again his shifted to start pressing into him.
whimpered softly and flinched a little at the slow stretch from Angel's
cock. Now he didn't feel like half of a
man. Now every emotion he possessed was
screaming at him that this was right.
hissed when he was all the way in his boy. Xander had moved around some while
he entered him, but as soon as Angel stopped moving he tilted his head to the
side again. Angel lunged down and as he fangs slid into Xander's neck he
started pistoning his hips faster then he had planned.
erotic gift of vampires was the ability to take pain and twist and mould it
into sweet ecstasy. What could have
been hell, was now Xander's heaven. He
wasn't lost anymore because now he knew he belonged to Angel.
knew it was going to be over quick. The combination of the bond, a warm body,
and fresh blood had stripped any control he had. It didn't worry him too much
because he knew Xander would be pulled along for the ride no matter how fast it
was over. He started pounding into him even harder and put one wrist to
Xander's mouth, hoping he'd know to bite it himself.
cock was hard and dripping as he seized onto Angel's wrist.The bond was telling him what Angel needed
and he bit into the skin roughly, remembering he couldn't hurt this man.
tearing through his skin pushed Angel over the edge and he drove into Xander
one more time. His body froze in place as he came and only the faint tremors
that shook his body betrayed his orgasm. After Xander's cum splashed between
them, he pulled his wrist away and lifted his head.
was out cold again, but this time his colour was normal and he had a soft smile
on his relaxed face. But more
importantly, the boy was now wearing his mark.
Angel had tried to lie to himself, telling himself that the boy would
only be little more than a minion to him, but now he knew the boy belonged to
him more deeply.
cleaned Xander off and arranged him on the bed before covering him up. That
large a blood exchange would have caused him to sleep for hours, and he wasn't
sure how long recovering from the split would add to that. Once he was sure his
boy was comfortable he took a shower and went to look for Spike.
found the pair still in the lobby, with Xan pacing back and forth and Spike
trying to calm him. Spike could sense
his Sire as he came down the stairs and his eyes snapped up."Hey boy, the poof's done."
is he?" Xan snarled. "Why'd you leave him alone?"
passed out again," Angel said calmly.
He looked at this boy, who was the mirror image of Xander, but not the
sweet, submissive boy he'd just marked.
should be fine, Xan. From the smell of him all through the poof, I'd guess he's
gonna be asleep for a while as the bond forms," Spike said before turning
an amused look on Angel. "Didn't expect you to take him as a mate, Peaches."
took him as a mate?" Xan yelled at Angel. "No… No, he wouldn't
have. Angel isn't capable of stuff like
that. Xander needs someone to love
really your choice was it, boy. He's safe now and I'll make sure he's taken
care of," Angel said. "I just wanted to let you know he's going to be
fine and get some food. Then I'm going back to bed."
what? I'm just supposed to leave him
here?" Xan challenged.
did you explain to him what would happen at all?" Angel asked in exasperation.
said you'd bite him like he bit me, then he'd be fixed," Xan huffed.
more then a bite, Xan. They had to bond on some level to stabilize him, and the
poof created a mate's bond. There's no way either of them will agree to leave
the other. Would you want to leave me here and return to Sunnydale?" Spike
asked. He honestly wasn't sure what Xan's answer would be. They hadn't bonded
nearly as deeply as Angel and Xander. Spike planned to remedy that as soon as
possible though. There was no way his Sire could refuse the two of them the
right to mate now.
Xan snapped at Spike and headed turned towards him, moving in on his personal
space. "You're mine and you're not
running away from this mess. You do and
I'll find you and stake you, you British bastard!"
gonna leave," Spike said as he let Xan grab him and push him against the
wall. "But Xander feels the same way and he's going to want to stay. I'm
sure Angel would be happy to have us live here with them though. One big happy
family right, Sire?"
scowled heavily at the thought of his troublesome Childe coming back into his
fold. He wanted Xander close, but he
wasn't sure he wanted Xan or Spike.
"If this… change is permanent, then Xan and Xander should learn to
live separate lives."
talked to your mate yet about how he's going to feel if you send his twin
away?" Spike asked. He was sure Xander would be as upset at the idea of
separation as Xan was.
Angel grumbled. "I suppose you can stay for awhile, but if you act up in
anyway, William… don't think I won't remind you that I'm you're Sire!"
us find a room with a bed," Spike called out as he immediately pulled Xan
up the stairs. "Make sure you call Sunnydale and let them know we're here
so they don't start casting spells or looking for us." Spike smirked at
the sound Angel made when he heard that, but kept pulling Xan along. He had
plans for his boy.
decided he should make the call so he'd be able to answer Xander's questions
when he woke up. There was also his own
employees and friends currently in the weapons room he would have to deal
with. He reached for the phone and
dialed Buffy's house from memory. It
ran once before he lost his nerve and hung up.
After getting out his address book, he dialed Giles's house instead,
opting for the less dangerous member of the Scooby gang.
wrong?" Giles asked as soon as he picked up the phone and heard Angel say
hello. Ever since Angel had left Sunnydale, any contact from him had been a
portent of trouble. Actually, he realized, that had been true even before he'd
notice that you're missing two boys and a pain in the ass vampire yet?"
are you talking about? How do you know about Xander?" Giles asked as he
very carefully didn't analyze Angel's statement.
and Xan, you mean," Angel corrected, showing Giles that he knew the
secret. "They're in L.A."
are they in L.A.?" Giles said with a sigh. "Never mind actually,
Buffy or I will be down shortly to retrieve them. You're welcome to keep Spike
keeping all three." Angel wanted
to make it clear that they were under his protection now.
You can't keep Xander. If he went down there, Spike must have taken advantage
of what happened and found some way to control him," Giles said.
has Spike more under control than you realize," Angel snorted.He didn't want to admit that he had a bad
feeling that Xander could possibly have the same power over him.
please cease the cryptic comments and tell me what is going on down there. If
you think I'm going to let you take in Spike and a magically separated Xander
because you feel like it, you are sadly mistaken."
Angel sighed heavily."Fine.
You wanted the plain truth. I've
taken Xander for a mate and Spike has taken Xan."
was a long silence from Giles. "And why did you do that?" he finally
asked. He couldn't come up with a scenario where Angel took Xander as mate no
matter how he tried.
what I understand my Childe accidentally initiated a bond between himself and
the boy… well, the one called Xan. The
other one, Xander, was going to die if he didn't also bond with a vampire like
hell!" Giles wasn't sure if he was swearing because of the bond or because
he was going to have to explain this to the others. "I noticed that one of
them seemed less inhibited then Xander normally is and with them separated like
that they would latch onto a bond. I suppose they are sleeping now?"
turned his hearing into the second floor and confirmed that Xander was still
sleeping, but Xan and Spike were thumping the bed vigorously against the
wall. "Yes, they're both
sleeping," he lied. "I'll get them to call you tomorrow
well, I'll try to explain to the girls, but they may still show up there
tonight," Giles warned. He hung up the phone and glared at it. He was not
looking forward to this.
hung up the phone and knew it was time to face his own friends before he would
be able to join Xander in bed. He went
into the weapons room and found Wesley, Cordelia and Gunn polishing and
sharpening various weapons. They should
have gone home hours ago, but he knew they were hanging around to find out what
all started when Angel walked in, then went back to cleaning weapons that
obviously didn't need cleaning, except for Cordelia. "Okay, Angel, what is
going on with the howling and the bleached menace and my ex-boyfriend holding
us at bay?" she said.

explosion. If the boy was going to be

was separated into two separate people by a demon's spell.The one with Spike calls himself Xan and the
one with me is Xander."
Xander gets hit by some magic, again, and decides both of him wants to sleep
with you two? I guess he ran out of evil female demons." Cordy blushed and
glared at Wesley and Gunn when they started laughing at her comment about
Xander and evil female demons.
going to have to show him more respect now," Angel said, his eyebrows
dropping into a soft scowl. He wouldn't
have his new mate the butt of jokes around here.
man, I wasn't laughing at this Xander, I don't even know him, and I don't think
English was either." Gunn said. "We were laughing at Cordy pointing
out that her ex has dated all the available 'evil demon women'… including
herself I take it. Don't promise to be nice to the annoying vamp if he stays
not even nice to Spike," Angel said with a half smile."He's always been an annoying shit,
just don't stake him."
I'm going home then," Cordy said. "I'll talk to them tomorrow and
until then denial is good. You better make sure Spike knows to stay out of my
remember that he can't hurt humans because he has a chip in his head.You'll be safe," Angel told her, then
turned to the rest of them. "But
don't bait him, he's still dangerous."
Spike had always needed tough love to keep him line and if he was going
to be sticking around, Angel had to be prepared to use a heavy hand with him
Angel was explaining things to his people, Giles was pacing around his living
room. He'd called Buffy and Willow to tell them to come over as soon as they
could. He knew if they thought he'd kept this information from them it would be
harder to calm them down. He jerked to a halt when he heard a knock at the door
and then went to let them in.
this better be good," Buffy said as she came into the living room."I was watching Sex in the City."
well, not good, but definitely important. Why don't the two of you sit
down." Giles took a second to run over what he was going to say. "It
seems that there were more side effects to Xander being split in two then we
thought. Neither of them were very stable and after one of them 'bonded' with
Spike the other started to degrade quickly. Spike took them both to L.A. and
Angel bonded with the other Xander. They are both fine now though," Giles
managed to get out before he was interrupted.
do you mean… bonded?" Buffy demanded.
She didn't like that something bad had happened to Xander again, but she
really hated that Angel was somehow involved.
resisted the urge to berate her for not spending time reading the books he gave
her to study. It was clear from the look on Willow's face that she knew what
was going on. "From what I could gather Angel and Spike have each taken
one of them as mates. They will all be staying in L.A. with Angel."
are we going to L.A. to get Xander back then?" Buffy demanded.Her mind was still reeling from the fact
that Angel had supposedly taken Xander as a mate. He must have been forced to do it somehow and it would be best
for everyone if they were separated.

each other. Trying to bring Xander back would only result in a fight,"
Giles said. "Both Xanders would be fighting us as well."

work over long distances. I will find a
way to make this right."
cast any spells on him without checking with me first," Giles said.
"We have to find out how two vampire mating bonds will effect it, and
there's a decent chance that they will not want to be recombined. If it takes
too long they will have developed into different people who may not be able to

determinedly. She wanted her best
friend back and wasn't going to loose him to vampires.
just don't do anything without talking to me first, and, Buffy, you are not to
try to go to L.A. under any circumstances," Giles said.
Xander could get himself into this mess," Buffy sighed dramatically with
the roll of her eyes. "And leave
it up to us to rescue him."
Giles sighed and pinched his nose. "If we can find a way to undo the spell
safely we will, but if you or anyone else tries to take them away from their
mates all four of them will kill to stay together if that's what it
if we just killed Spike?" Buffy perked up.
Xan would make it his goal in life to kill us, maybe even if he was restored to
one person. We have to leave them alone for now," Giles said. He sat down
and prepared for a long night of arguing.
woke up with his head planted firmly in Angel's armpit.Sometime, while he'd been sleeping, Angel
had joined him in the bed and Xander had managed to crawl on top of the other
man. It was odd not to have the chest
he was resting on raising with the intake of breath or the lack of a heartbeat,
but he would get used to it. It didn't
take much for him to turn his head and start to nuzzle Angel's neck.
are you felling?" Angel asked as he rubbed Xander's back. He wanted to
make sure Xander remembered what had happened before they went any further, and
before he heard the thumps and howls coming from the room down the hall. He was
surprised that Xan had enough energy to keep up with Spike for as long as he had.
better. Thank you…" Xander stopped
and tried to think of what he should call Angel now. He knew that they shared a bond together now and vampire
hierarchy demanded that there was no such thing as equals in clans."Thank you… Master?"
hardened instantly with Xander still nuzzling his neck, naked, and calling him
master. "You don't have to call me that, Xander," Angel said. His
voice came out a lot huskier then he'd intended. "We're fully mated
you like it…." Xander whispered, starting to nip at Angel's neck now as
his hand snaked down to massage his cock.
don't have to call me that, but I'm not going to stop you if you want to,"
Angel groaned. Xander squeezed his cock one more time and Angel decided talking
could wait and flipped them over so he was on top of Xander.
had sex again and Angel was sure he had made more noise than Spike, even though
Xander was a quiet lover. "I'll
just call you Master in bed if I get that reaction," Xander teased, still
recovering from panting heavily only minutes ago. Maybe I better not do it in
front of other people though.
might be best," Angel said as he forced himself not to try for round two
just from hearing Xander say it again. "We need to get cleaned up and you
need to eat."
kind of food do you have?" Xander asked suspiciously.He knew there would be blood in the
refrigerator, but what kind of food would a vampire have around the house?
and Wes keep some basics in the kitchen in case they get stuck here later then
normal. Tomorrow we can go shopping and replace whatever you two eat today and
get food for you and Xan," Angel said with a hint of a grin. He swiped a
thumb over Xander's lips and showed him the faint red smear before licking it
off. "You're still human so you'll need more then my blood."
like junk food," Xander informed him between nips of Angel's thumb.
"But it's not as good as your blood."
can get some junk food, but you're going to eat healthy," Angel said.
"You'll need the energy for training anyway."
Xander laughed and he patted his stomach.
"Look at that six pack. I'm
a lean mean fighting machine… who really, really digs Twinkies."
know you are, but both of you are going to have to train. Being mated to
vampires is going to make the two of you targets even more then working with
the Slayer." Angel snatched his hand away from where he had started to
stroke Xander's stomach and then drifted lower. "No, not getting
distracted. You need to eat, and so do I," Angel said.
didn't you say so?" Xander beamed at his lover and bared his throat.
I've eaten some of the blood I have in the refrigerator," Angel said as he
cupped Xander's neck with his hand. "Much as I enjoy that, bonding is
taxing and we both need food. We better get Xan and Spike too. He never
listened to vampire lore and probably forgot all about that fact."
if you're Spike's Sire, does that like make you Xan's father-in-law?"
Xander asked with a smirk on his face.

matter as long as he realizes that as the mate of my Childe I'm the one in
charge," Angel said as they left the room. Outside the room Spike had pick

in five minutes or I'll be back, and, Spike, you won't like it."
nudged the figured moaning on the bed with his foot. "Better get up, pet.
Peaches wants to play daddy dearest to his new horde."
don't want to get up," Xan moaned. "And when he comes in here I'm
going to blame it all on you. He did say you were the one who'd get in
that means I'm the one that has to get your pretty arse outta bed then, don't
it? I'll carry you if I have to."
fine, I guess I am a little hungry. Angel's not going to think he can tell me
what to do now though, is he?" Xan asked. He got up and pulled on a pair
of shorts and Spike's black t-shirt. "I'm not eating any pigs blood with
you now, just so you know. He better have real food or Xander and I are getting
ya want to eat is fine with me, pet," Spike agreed, getting out of bed and
happy to see that Xan was wearing his shirt.
He sure as hell didn't mind walking around in just his jeans and nothing
else. "And the poof kinda is in charge as long as we're under his roof… at
least he has to think he's in charge."
thinking it's a good thing he still has the soul then. Angelus as my mate's
Sire would not be fun. Angel can't be too bad compared to that," Xan said
as he followed Spike toward the kitchen.

they got to the kitchen they saw Xander seated in Angel's lap and working his
way through sandwiches and a glass of milk while Angel sipped on a mug of
blood. "Hey, Xan, isn't this great?" Xander asked with his mouth
still half full.
the Twinkies?" Xan asked his Twin.
He wanted to make a snarky comment, but Xander looked healthy and happy.
we have is food Cordy and Wes leave here, and neither of them eats junk food,
but Angel said we can go shopping and get some good stuff tomorrow,"
Xander said still eating. "You better make lots of sandwiches if you and
Spike have…." Xander blushed beet red before continuing. "If you've
been busy I mean. Angel told me I'd be hungry from the bond, and I didn't feel
that hungry but once I started eating I'm starving."
sighed as his brother babbled, happy that Xander had inherited that particular
habit in the split. "Fine, then
we'll pick up some Twinkies for breakfast and some Fruit Loops for lunch or
supper like usual then." He picked
up a sandwich and opened it, noting the peanut butter and stuffed half of it
into his mouth.
heat yourself up some blood," Angel said evenly. "You should know how
taxing a bond is for the two of you. Xan, you and Xander will both be limiting
your junk food and eating better. You're going to need it for the training, and
if you want to continue to let Spike feed from you."

pulled a pack of cigarettes out of his back pocket and went to light one up.
kissed Xander lightly on the neck before sliding out from under him and
standing up. "Spike, you're not going to smoke inside," he said
pulling the cigarette out of Spike's hand. "And you are going to listen to
me. Both of them are going to be targets because human mates are so rare. They
will eat right and they will train." Angel crowded Spike against the wall.
"Letting you run wild when it was just you was fine, but I'll assert full Sire's
rights if I think it's needed to keep them safe."
wouldn't, you soddy poof!" Spike challenged. He wasn't sure why he was pushing his Sire, but it probably had
something to do with the unconscious habit of a Childe of any age, even a
Master, to push their Sire's limits… to see what the boundaries were.
gave Spike a grin that would have looked entirely natural, for Angelus.
"I'm not going to be unreasonable, Spike, but if I think anything you're
doing is endangering the health of my mate you won't like the results. That
includes endangering his twin. Are we clear on that?" Angel asked in a low
voice, but still loud enough for the others to hear.
swallowed deeply and was the first to drop his eyes away from Angel's dangerous
glare. "Yes, Sire…" he said
through gritted teeth.
Angel said going back to reclaim his spot with Xander. "There's plenty of
pig's blood here and I'll arrange for human blood starting tomorrow if you want
it. You don't have a soul telling you not to drink it, and I can get some
that's been rejected by the blood bank due to traces of alcohol."
goody," Spike sounded thrilled, but the truth was he was looking forward
to a steady supply of human blood. He
sat down sullenly on a chair, then looked at Xander still sweetly in Angel's
lap. He looked over at Xan who was on
his third peanut butter sandwich and patted his knee.

eyes wide. "You think I'm like a
growled at Xan then growled at Spike for good measure. "You're not a
puppy. They're just being annoying." His lips brushed Xander's neck and he
took a sip of blood. At the same time he used a fingernail to put a small cut
on one wrist and hold it to Xander's mouth. "This way lets us have more
fun while we eat," he whispered as Xander started to move his ass back and
forth in his lap.
sucked on Angel's wrist for comfort, making little whimpering sounds and still
watching his Twin with wounded eyes.
Spike was in pure agony as his cock filled at the erotic sight before
him. He wanted Xan in his lap feeding

the slutty one…" he groused.
him alone, Spike," Xan said. "I'm the only one that's allowed to
tease him and that's cuz it's like teasing myself." He started eating
faster as he watched Angel's wrist fall away and Xander continue to rock back
and forth with a smear of red on his lips. "I'm almost done then we can go
take a shower or something."

of cold pig's blood out the fridge. He

looked between the two of them.

he whispered was quiet enough that Xander couldn't hear and hopefully Angel
couldn't either. "Angel would probably take care of that for me, right?
Isn't that that his job as my mate's Sire?" Xan had gotten so close that
his lips brushed Spike's ear as he talked.

boy!" he snapped as he started to drag Xan out of the room.

showing him who he belonged to. Spike
might be topping, but Xan was getting what he wanted and it sounded like he was
getting it hard when Angel heard a loud crash from the bathroom.

was leaning back against Angel. He had heard the crash too, but was sure they
were just playing up there.

of food. "I'll be able to get some work done and when the boys are done,
you and Xan can go shopping. Spike can
go with you for protection."
Xander said happily. "I want to see Cordy and… wait, you want me to go
shopping without you." He snuggled back against Angel. "That's
alright. I can just tell Xan what I want and stay here if you're not
Angel sighed softly. "You're just going to get some groceries.Besides, it will allow me to get some work

trying to get rid of you. I want
I'll stay here until you have time to go out with me," Xander said.
"Can we get some new clothes too maybe. They didn't pack much and I know
you never liked my clothes. You can get me things you like."
I suppose I could for just today…" Angel caved in quickly to this big,
needy brown eyes. "But, when we shop, you can pick out whatever you
find something you like," Xander said. "There are lots of leather
stores in L.A. right?" He twisted around in Angel's lap while fe was
talking and by the time Cordy and Wes walked in they saw Xander straddling
Angel on the chair. Xander's ass was moving back and forth in Angel's lap while
they made out.
get a room!" Cordy said in a disgusted voice. "Some of us have to eat in here."
blushed deep red, but didn't move from his spot in Angel's arm any more then
was needed to turn his head and look at her. "Hey, Cordy, Wes," he
said shyly. "We weren't really doing anything."
I'd say by the dazed look on Angel's face that you were about to do
something," Cordelia laughed.
meet you in the office in a minute," Angel finally managed to say. He was
sure if he tried to hurry Xander off his lap or acted embarrassed in front of
the others it would just upset him.
a minute?" Wes asked with a completely straight face.He didn't have much of a sense of humour,
but when he did say something, it was usually pretty good.
Angel could say anything, a howl echoed down from upstairs. "If you think
we need more time I can send you to go get Spike," Angel said with a
smirk. He could feel Xander grin at that, even though his face had been pressed
into Angel's chest since the teasing had started. "I think he and Xan are
in the shower."
it! I'm buying earplugs," Cordy
whined loudly. "Are vampires
always so loud?"
waited until they were both gone before he straightened up on Angel's lap.
"Wow, Cordy has gotten a lot nicer working for you," he said
seriously. He got up after one more kiss and started putting away the dirty
dishes from the four of them. "I'll clean up in here okay?"
Angel sighed loudly and got up. "Why don't you read a book or watch TV… I think
there's a working one around here somewhere.
If you need me, I'll be in my office."
should talk to Xan and make sure he's okay. Then we need to decide what to tell
everyone back in Sunnydale, and I want to talk to Cordy then I'll come help
you. I can research stuff for you or Xan and I could do some repairs on the
hotel. How long are you going to be working?" Xander said on one breath.
blinked at him and then turned to Wesley.
It wasn't like they had a schedule or anything.As things stood, when Cordy had a vision,
then they'd go into action, but if not they would just go out and kill whatever
vampires or demons were causing problems.
Xander was definitely excitable to say the least.
Angel's helpless look through the kitchen door, Wesley came back in. "We
don’t have set hours really, Xander. We get some people who come in to hire us,
and we also take care of messages the Powers That Be send us through
Cordelia," he said. "Other then that it's just paperwork and whatever
comes up." He turned to Angel. "You have told Giles and the others
what is going on already, right? I don't fancy a visit from all of them."
I told them," Angel quickly agreed. "And I told them the boys would
call them tonight. I'd rather be here
for that… Xander, why don't you collect Xan from Spike and do that now?"
Xander agreed as he put the last of the dishes in the sink. "Are they
done? I don't want to interrupt him and Spike doing that."
tuned his hearing in and could only hear one person moving around
upstairs. He chuckled fondly and told
Xander, "Spike has the energy of a log after a good fucking.Sounds like Xan wore him out."
glad Spike picked Xan and not me. Do you want us to call from your
office?" Xander asked as he stood in front of Angel and waited for a kiss
before he went upstairs.
gave him a quick kiss, wondering how he'd gotten so whipped, so fast.He'd never had a lover so sweet and trusting
or so needy. He shooed Xander upstairs
to collect his twin, telling him to meet back in his office.This time he'd like Xander sitting in his
lap when he made the call. It would
allow him to overhear anything that was said, but also keep the boy close if he
Spike poked Xan as he tried to block out the sound of knocking by covering his
head with a pillow. "Better get that Xan. It's the other you and he's
getting upset because you're not answering. You get him upset and the poof's
going to yell at us and ruin the post shagging mood."
lump," Xan grumbled as he got out of bed.
He pulled on some jeans and nothing else as he stumbled towards the
door. "I'm coming… I'm coming…"
Xander said excitedly. "Are you and Spike having fun? Angel said you wore
him out and I could come get you. We need to call Sunnydale so they know we're
okay and don't try to come get us." He grabbed Xan's hand and started
pulling him downstairs.
gone for a few minutes, honey, have to call your in-laws," Xan called out
to Spike sarcastically.
Slayer is not my in-law," Spike called back as he dragged himself out of
bed. If he knew those chits, they were going to try to screw everything up and
he wanted to be where he could hear what they said.
lucky they don't make us have a shotgun wedding to protect my virtue!" Xan
shot back as Xander dragged him down the hall.
He loved the constant bickering between them that continuously built up
the sexual tension until it ready to burst.
you think they're going to be really mad at us?" Xander asked as they got
close to the office. "I think Buffy's going to be mad at me, but not as
mad at you."
the same person to them, Xander," Xan sighed. "They'll be mad at
Angel and Spike. We can't let that
won't let them be mean to Angel," Xander said showing his first spark of
real anger since the split. It passed quickly though and he hurried over to
Angel, dragging Xan with him.
Peaches!" Xan called out as they entered Angel's office.
winced at the thought of putting up with nicknames from Spike and Xan for the
foreseeable future then glared at Cordy who was checking out the bare-chested
Xan. Her looking at Xan like that got him almost as jealous as if she was
looking at Xander , and he immediately pulled Xander into his lap. "Close
the door," he hissed when Spike sauntered in.
picked up that Cordy was checking out his Xan and changed into game face just
long enough to snap at her with his fangs.
He closed the door after she shrieked and fled through the door. "Guess
that means we can't saunter round here naked?"
just shook his head at Spike before turning back to the twins. "I brought
two phones in here so you can talk to them at the same time. I talked to Giles
last night yesterday and explained what had happened, but they all want to talk
to both of you, just try not to upset them and don't let them upset you,"
Angel said. He had considered having Xan talk to them so Xander didn't have
too, but realized Xan by himself would probably piss them off enough to come to
was sitting comfortably on Angel's lap and Spike grumbled to himself.Xan might not sit in his lap, but he was
going to get close to the boy whether he liked it or not.He came up behind Xan and wrapped his arm
around the boy's waist. "Better
make the call and let them know no one is taking you away from me."
dialed the phone and waited for Giles to pick up. "I'm going to put them
on in a second," Angel said after hellos were exchanged. "Make sure
you keep Buffy and Willow under control. I don't want either of them
upset." Giles was still sputtering when Angel passed the phone to Xander
and pushed a second phone toward Xan.
tell us he hasn't turned you," was the first thing out of Buffy's mouth
when she got hold of the receiver. Of
course, it didn't cross her mind that if Xander had been turned, he wasn't
likely to confess it.
wouldn't turn me unless I wanted him too," Xander said shaking his head.
"Are you and Willow okay?"
fine," Willow said over the other phone in Giles house. "We're just
worried about you. How could you let

do you mean? You were there and there was no way to stop the demon from
spitting us," Xander said. He looked over at Xan questioningly.

what's going on can explain why this happened. I didn't think you'd do
something as dumb as letting a vampire bite you."
spread your legs for a vampire too, you know why I did it!" Xan snapped
over the line. He hated it when Buffy
put him down like he was some stupid little pet.
why are you being so rude?" Willow asked.
Xan," he snapped. "And I knew what I was doing.She did the same fucking thing!"
put the phone down on the desk and snuggled further back into Angel's lap.
"I don't want to talk to them anymore," he whispered.
rubbed the back of his head and settled Xander's neck against his neck."You don't have to, pet."

will take care of us," Xan snarled into the phone.

grabbed the phone off the desk. "You try casting any spells on my Xander
without my permission and you won't like the consequences," he growled. He
and Angelus were in total agreement on this point and Angel could feel his
anger at a threat to his mate like it was a physical thing.
plucked the phone out of Xan's hand, "Me and my Sire are on the same page
here. You mess with my boy and I'll
show you how I got the name Spike."

him to Angel. I should come show you why I'm the Slayer."
you look good in high heels and like holding something long and pointed isn't
very scary," Spike growled back. "The boys are staying here."
you've talked to them and know they are fine," Angel said. "If they
want to talk to you they'll call you. If you want to talk to them, send a
letter." He hung up the phone before they could answer and motioned for
Spike to do the same.
was shaking in Angel's lap and Xan looking like he was ready to kill
someone. Spike pulled Xan into a tight
hug, locking his arms so the boy wouldn't get away. "You're still mine!"
stiffened for a minute before started to wiggle out of his clothes while trying
to pull Spike's off at the same time. "Show me," he hissed. Out of
the corner of his eye he could see Xander blush then follow his lead on Angel,
but more hesitantly. Xan grinned. He knew Xander needed Angel to claim him even
more then he needed Spike's claim after that call.
for a brat like you," Spike hissed into his ear. "Gonna show everyone
who you scream for."
going to be the only one who screams," Xan promised before latching onto
Spike's neck and biting hard enough to draw a little blood. While Spike's
surprised howl was still echoing through the small room Xan kicked his pants
off before sliding to his knees and tugging Spike's pants down.
had always liked his lovers feisty and more than half crazy.Xan certainly fit the bill as he engulfed
Spike's cock in his hot mouth. He knew
it was just a matter of time before the boy got it in his head that he should
take Spike and maybe, just maybe, Spike would let him do it after a little
moaned happily when Spike got a good grip on his hair and started thrusting
into his mouth harder. He was planning on getting fucked though, so he was
making sure he didn't let Spike get too close. He knew from experience that
Spike could stay hard, but he was more forceful if they fucked before he got
off for the first time.
sounds and sights nearby were turning Xander on as he stripped off Angel's
shirt completely. He noted the effects
Xan's actions had had on Spike, so he decided to try it on Angel.He leaned forward to bite Angel, but it
wasn't savage or fierce, more like a kitten pretending to be a big cat.
rumbled encouragingly. He hadn't been to sure this was a good idea, but it
seemed like Xander was getting some good ideas watching his twin. After Xander
had managed to get a little blood he pulled him back up and tasted his own
blood on his boy's lips. He took in the glazed look in Xander's eyes after the
kiss and decided he'd start pulling Xander's pant's off.
leaned in close and whispered, "Master, please…"
like we're a good influence on them," Spike whispered to Xan as he pulled
his boy up for a kiss. As much as he liked Xan on his knees in front of him he
needed to fuck him after that call to Sunnydale. He pushed Xan's hands aside
and quickly divested himself of his pants before pushing Xan facedown onto the
desk Angel and Xander were sitting behind.
fuck me good this time, Blondie…" Xan hissed out his challenge.He wanted Spike to fuck him in front of
Angel. He knew the man was his lover's
Sire and there was something kinky and powerful about the idea of doing it in
Angel's personal space.
diverted his attention from a moaning Xander while one hand kept preparing him.
He eyes met Spike and he smirked for a second. In spite of all the things that
had happened between them, this brought back memories of previous times when
things had been better between them. He got an answering smirk from his Childe
then focused back on his mate. He claimed Xander's lips in a kiss as he lifted
him up and let him start to slowly sink down on his cock.
wasn't about to let his Sire outdo him and entered Xan only a few seconds after
Angel had entered Xander. He knew his
boys hands were braced on the desk and started to pound into him, wanting to
make him scream for everyone. To let them all know who the boy belonged to.
Xander moaned louder and louder as Angel picked up the pace. He could hear
Spike and Xan behind him, but it wasn't really registering anymore. Even when
he threw his head back and to the side, asking wordlessly for Angel to feed
again, he was focused on his mate. He knew Angel would protect him.
sank his fangs deeply into Xander's shoulder and he could feel the bond dancing
between them, echoing and reverberating their ecstasy.Feeding from Xander wasn't like feeding from
a normal human. The blood tasted the
same, but Angel could sense something different and unique lingering on his
tongue. Blood always told a story and
slightly opened the mind to the giver's soul.
Angel knew that Xander was only half of a soul that was living in Xan.
Angel feed, Spike couldn't help but speed up as he pounded into Xan. The desk
was starting to shake between his thrusts and Xan's movements. He watched Xan
barely tilt his head. Nothing as blatant as Xander, but enough to let Spike
know that his boy needed the same connection his twin did. "You haven't
screamed yet," he whispered as his fangs dragged along Xan's neck below
his ear. "Let go."
bastard!" Xan wailed as Spike bit into the marks on his shoulder.For whatever reason, since Spike had bit him
that first time it was always more sensitive than any other part of his skin,
other than his cock.
could feel himself getting close faster then he'd expected. The pheromones in
the room were almost overpowering and the sounds of his Childe and his mate was
making it even harder to slow down. He pulled Xander's head down to his neck
knowing that his boy was so responsive he'd come just from the blood and
followed Angel's lead and bit into his lover's neck. Again, it wasn't a savage bite, but it was driven by
passion. His cries as he came were
muffled against Angel's skin.
grabbed Spike's wrist when it was dropped in front of him and bit into it. He
was shoving backwards into Spike's thrusts while drinking heavily. As soon as
he started to cum he dropped Spike's wrist and screamed. Spike and Angel both
answered his screams with howls and Xander's moans increased in volume to
match. Finally they slumped into their mates.
nearly whole again…" Xan and Xander both panted in unison.
shag will fix almost anything," Spike said with a smirk as moved around
inside Xan a few more times before slowly pulling out. "Isn't that right,
bastard," Xan repeated his earlier curse with a purr, but now it sound
like a term of an endearment. "It
was all right, I guess…"
could give it another try," Spike said. "But I'm sure the poof's pets
are going to be sore if they stay crouched against the door much longer."
He said the last part loud enough for them to hear and Xander blushed when he
heard them moving away from the door.
now, Xander," Angel whispered in his ear, "Nothing to be ashamed
of. I'll have a nice little talk with
them about privacy."
okay," Xander said quietly. "I'll do whatever you want, but sometimes
I can't help the blush. I think I got all the blushing and Xan got none of
thought for a moment that Xander was going to cry with the way his body
shaking, but then he heard a soft laugh from his lover.The laugh got louder until Xander was
hiccupping with the effort to stop.
"You hired perverts!" he burst out suddenly.

Sunnydale," Cordy called back. "Are you all done in there?"
have great stamina and I bet we could suck them off in no time flat!" Xan
Xander hissed as he blushed again. He slid out of Angel's lap and sat on the
floor next to him while he pulled his clothes back on. "Do you want me to
get you some blood, Angel?"
"What, you really
believe what mom told you that a way to a man's heart is through his
stomach?" Xan snorted. "It's
through his cock. Take a lesson from
me. If Peaches wants a snort of the old
blood juice, he'll get it himself. You
don't see me pampering Spike here!"
"Spike, control him or
I will," Angel growled when he felt Xander press back against his legs
shaking slightly. Once he was sure he'd gotten his point across, he pulled
Xander to his feet. "Some blood would be nice, pet. Get yourself something
to drink, too."
"Do you have any root
beer?" Xander asked. He doubted it
since Spike and Xan hadn't exactly managed to out shopping yet, but it didn't
hurt to ask for his favourite drink.
Angel paused for a second.
He knew he'd seen root beer somewhere. "Ask Wes to give you some of his.
We can replace it later." He waited until Xander was out of the room
before turning on Spike and Xan. "I meant it when I told you to leave him
alone. That goes for you as well. Xan," Angel said. He hadn't wanted to
threaten Xander's twin in front of him, but he was going to warn him now that
they were alone.
"Leave him alone?I was him!" Xan spat back. "He's
acting like a pussy."
Angel was half out of his
chair before he remembered that Xander wouldn't handle the sight of him beating
Xan too well. "Spike, if he doesn't behave himself you and I will have a
long, long talk," He said meaningfully.
"Shut your cake hole,
Xan," Spike said. He remembered
that look on his Sire's face and he wasn't to be messed with."Why don't we go out and get some
decent nosh. I gotta stock up on some
Before Xan could answer,
Xander rushed back into the room with his hands full of drinks. He carefully
handed Angel a mug of blood, then pushed a mug of blood and glass of root beer
in front of Xan before sitting back down in Angel's lap. "Wesley said to
make sure we replaced his root beer," he informed Angel after he was
"Xan and Spike will do
that," Angel said and wrapped his arm around Xander's waist. "Will
you need a list, or will Xan know everything you like?"
"We like the same
things," Xan said quietly. He passed the blood over to Spike and drank his
soda. While he was drinking he caught Xander's eye and gave him a small smile.
It pissed him off to see himself that meek again, but he didn't want to upset
Xander too much.
Angel huffed, a little happy
to see that Xan wasn't going to upset Xander anymore. "You can buy junk food like Twinkies, but I want you to buy
some healthy food as well. I want both
Xander and you eating fruit, vegetable and good meat. Oh, and Spike… no cigarettes."
"Bloody hell, I'll
smoke them outside, but I'm not going to give up my fags just because you don't
like it. I'm already playing nice with humans and can't hunt. I've got to have
some vice," Spike groused.
"I can think of a fag
you can have anytime," Xan cracked with a snort.
said. "Send Wesley and Cordy in when you leave." He loosened his grip
on Xander enough that the boy could get off his lap if he wanted too. He had
promised to talk to his people about privacy and he wanted to get it out of the
"You want me to go
now?" Xander whispered in his ear as the other two left, sending them in
with a quick, "The poof wants to see you."
"You're welcome to
stay," Angel said. He knew Xander didn't want to leave and was hoping if
he wasn't pushed away he'd get more comfortable. Maybe then he wouldn't be so
worried every time Angel was out of his sight.
"I'll be good,"
Xander promised and snuggled in closer to Angel. "Won't even know that I'm here. Quiet as a mouse. Oh, you'd
better drink your blood before it gets cold.
What setting do you usually nuke it on?
Too bad there wasn't a blood setting, like the popcorn one."
Angel was still grinning at
Xander's babble as a clearly nervous Cordy poked her head through the door. He
could see Wesley hovering behind her. "Come in you two," he said.
We're dressed now."
"Will this be a…
regular occurrence?" Wesley coughed after the question.The cries of all four men had echoed through
the old hotel, making it impossible to ignore.
Of course, he'd had a first row seat with Cordy in front of the door.
said, not fighting his smirk. "We'll try to avoid giving you free shows,
but if we do, I expect you to avoid spying on us in the future."
spying!" Cordy tried to deny the accusation. "We were just making
sure you were okay. Spike sounded like
he was killing Xan."
"Spike wouldn't really
hurt him," Xander said quietly. "Xan just pushes a lot. I think they
"Remind me of an old
married couple always nagging at each other," Wesley chuckled."But that fits into one of the
stereotypical categories of master vampire's mate."
Dawn was not far off when
all four of them sat down to dinner. Spike and Xan had been moving around the
hotel all night after they went shopping. Angel knew they were having sex in as
many rooms as they could, but they had been far enough away from the lobby that
they hadn't scared anyone. He had been busy with paperwork, and Xander a few
times. The boy hadn't left his side all night and every few hours had all but
asked to be fucked. If Angel hadn't known he was doing it to reassure himself
that Angel was still happy with him, it would have been perfect.
"You buy enough
Twinkies, Xan?" Xander asked. He had
found the nutritional meal that Wesley had cooked for them distasteful.Angel swore he'd learn to cook, but Xander
had the feeling he was the one who'd have to learn if they wanted something
decent to eat other than bland English food.
"Yup, it's all stashed
in the cupboard. Angel gave us lots of money to shop with." He looked up
at Angel with a slight smirk. "Have we eaten enough health food yet,
"Be more like
father-in-law!" Spike snorted. He loved it that his boy was able to get
under Angel's skin, even a little bit. "Oh Peaches, got some of those
little marshmallows if you want some to float in your blood.Really nice when they melt and get all
"You two can have some
now," Angel said while ignoring Spike's comment. "Not so much you
can't sleep though. We're going to start your training tomorrow night and
you'll want to be awake for that."
The Twins bolted out of
their chairs and Xan seized the Twinkie's box, throwing three to Xander."That should be enough to start
with," he mumbled as he tore into his first Twinkie.
Angel pulled Xander back
into his lap and grabbed one of his Twinkies. "Maybe I should try one of
these," he said thoughtfully as he pulled it out of its wrapper. He hid a
grimace of distaste at the sweetness. Deciding to put the remainder to good use
he broke off pieces of it and fed them to Xander. The filling got all over his
fingers and required a lot of sucking on Xander's part to get it all.
Spike watched the scene
jealously. "Suppose if I rubbed
that on my cock would be the only way could get Xan to accept food from me that
way," he grumbled to himself.
Xan grabbed a few more
Twinkies out of the box with one hand and Spike with the other. "We're
going to bed now. Goodnight Xander." He ignored Angel's chuckle as he
dragged an unresisting Spike after him.
"Night Xan!" He
called out to his Twin than whispered in Angel's ear. "Would you like me more if I was more like Xan?"
"I like you not
him," Angel said carefully. "I'm sure you'll get more confidence with
time." He felt Xander start to tense up in his arms. "It's okay, I
just want you to be yourself."
"Not gonna get us mixed
up?" Xander asked. His twin was
the other half of his soul, but he didn't want Angel touching him the way the
vampire touched him. He was damn
insecure, but Xan did look exactly like him.
You're mine and Xan belongs to Spike. Any vampire would be able to tell the two
of you apart by smell alone," Angel said. "Spike knows I'd stake him
if he touched you and I'm not going to exercise my Sire's rights with
Xan," Angel said as he tried to calm Xander down with touch.
Xander asked softly.
Angel wanted to curse when
he realized what he'd said. "Spike, and everything that's his, belongs to
me as his Sire. I'm not going to do that with Xan though."
"Xan belongs to
you?" Xander's voice cracked."So does Spike?"He didn't like theses possibilities.If he screwed up, Angel would have his
choice of Xan or Spike to replace him with.
"Pet, stop worrying.
Spike has belonged to me for a long time. If I had wanted him I could have had
him, but I didn't. He and I don't get along and Xan is too much like him to
interest me." Angel gave up trying to explain it when realized his words
weren't calming Xander down. Leaving a mess in the kitchen, he picked him up
and started carrying him to their bedroom where he could show him there was no
reason to worry.
"Gonna fuck me
now?" Xander started to babble. "Cause you always fuck me to shut me
up now. You don't think I know, but I
"I don't this to shut
you up," Angel said as he started pulling Xander's cloths off. "But
if you won't believe me when I tell you not to worry, I thought I could show
you not to worry." He felt like he was rapidly getting out of his depth
and had no idea how to make it better.
"Do you love me?"
Xander asked quietly, but still clutching at Angel. He thought Angel did, but he'd never said it.
Angel carded his fingers
through Xander's hair for a second while he thought about it. He'd wasn't sure
if he'd ever told anyone that before, but he could tell that Xander wouldn't be
content with having feelings just demonstrated. "Yes, Xander, I do love
you. We wouldn't have bonded like this otherwise."
Xander's reaction was
instantaneous and he pushed Angel back onto the bed. "I love you, too," he pronounced eagerly and started to
kiss his way down Angel's body. "I
wish there was a way to mark you…" He stopped to quickly undo Angel's
shirt. "Xan said that he wanted
everyone to know that Spike belonged to him.
I want everyone else to stay away from you. Figure the easiest way to do that is to say near you…"
Angel chuckled. "You're
staying near me to make sure I behave?" When Xander nodded Angel pulled
him into a hug. "There is a way. I could see if Wesley has a copy of the
spell and the ingredients. I'll ask him tomorrow."
"I'm glad this happened
to me," Xander said, nipping at Angel's nipples lightly."I never would have found you any other
way. And you're saying that Wesley can
hook up a big mystical neon sign that flashes 'Vampire Stud Belongs To Xander
"To other demons
maybe," Angel said as he let Xander take the lead. "And you'll get a
mystical sign of your own that lets them know you belong to me. Even the ones
that can't smell it will know." He moaned as Xander slipped down lower.
Xander could sense that
Angel was enjoying him a little more aggressive. He scanned all of the conversations with Xan concerning what
Spike and he did in bed, trying to think of something he could do."Would you like it if I rode your cock
hard?" he said, using the exact phraseology Xan had used in their
Angel groaned when he heard
Xander say that. He probably didn't realize it, but riding Angel like that
would be even more of a submission then the other things they'd done.
"Yeah, pet, I'd like that," Angel growled out.
"See, I can be
forceful!" Xander crowed, unbuckling Angel's belt. "I'll ride it
really hard. You'll see.I'll take it all!"
"I know ya can, pet,
and I'm going to enjoy it," Angel said. He was in full game face and
watching intently as Xander prepared himself. The way he was biting his lower
lip as he focused on getting everything just right for Angel was almost more of
a turn on then watching him move and twist in reaction to his own fingers.
"This is way better
than sex with a woman ever was," Xander panted and he continued to work
his fingers in and out. "But it's
not enough… I need you."
"I'm right here,
pet," Angel said as he kept himself from just grabbing Xander and slamming
into him. "I want to watch you take all of me on your own." He
ghosted his hands over Xander's chest and arms without actually touching him.
Xander gripped Angel's cock
firmly and lowered himself slowly into his length. "Oh," was all he
managed to gasp, but it was the look on his face that showed his pure ecstasy.
Once Xander was fully
impaled and moving on his own, Angel brought his hands up to rest on Xander's
thighs. Not directing him at all, but giving him more contact. He let Xander
fuck himself until he could tell his boy was starting to tire. Once he felt the
first tremor in Xander's legs, he ran his finger from the root of Xander's cock
to it's tip and whispered, "Cum."
Xander brought himself up,
with his legs tense and shaking, he drove himself hard onto Angel's cock.Only when Angel was buried into as far as he
could be would he cum. He looked
beautiful with his head thrown back and eyes closed.
Angel held out for the first
few seconds of Xander's ass clenching with his orgasm before giving in. He
threw his head back and howled until they were both done then arched up off the
bed to sink his fangs in Xander's neck.
groaned, knowing full well the effect it would have on Angel in this state.
Angel growled as he used his
strength to twist around with Xander underneath him. He was still close to the
edge from the blood and the way his boy was acting that it didn't take more
then a few stroke before he came again. This time he made sure Xander could reach
his neck as he fed again.
Xander bit down on Angel's neck harder than he ever had
before. His blunt teeth were able to
cut Angle's skin enough to pull a few drop of blood free before the wound
healed. In the back of his mind, this
whole encounter managed to lesson at least a few of his insecurities.
"Sire, this isn't going
to work," Spike said so softly Angel could barely hear him. They were
watching their boys work the punching bags after trying to spar. "Xander
can't bring himself to hit you even in training and mine, well, all he wants to
do is convince me to fuck him on the mat. Neither of them is learning
"I saw Xander… the full
Xander fight and he was good for human," Angel sighed. "It's not that
they lack technique, it's just…"
switch," Spike answered then took a half step backwards at the look on
Angel's face. "I meant for sparing you fucking stupid ponce." He
glanced at the door to the training room, wondering if he could make it out if
he needed to.
"I think we should
train ourselves," Angel growled, cracking his knuckles."You're too rusty and talk back too
"Come off it, Sire. I'm
exactly the vampire you wanted. Not my fault you got a soul and changed the
rules now is it? We should be figuring out how to make sure our mates are safe,
not fighting with each other."
"You don't fight enough
with that chip in your head," Angel shot back, launching a series of
punches and kicks that Spike dodged. "And if I made you this way I can
mould you into what I envision again."
"Fought plenty back in
Sunnyhell," Spike ground out as held his own. "I'm all growed up now
and you're not gonna change me." He could sense the boys watching them and
knew they needed to end this quick, but he wasn't going to submit.
"Already have you under
my roof again!" Angel growled as he tested his Childe.He wasn't using life ending moves, but he
still wanted to push Spike and himself.
"I got no problem
taking Xan and getting the hell out of here. Don't know if your pet's going to
be very happy when we leave because of you," Spike growled back.
"And you think yours
will leave either?" Angel challenged, now just circling Spike.
"Better get it through your head that we're stuck together.I don't care if you're a Master Vampire or
not, you'll always be my Childe!"
"You're not going to
leave are you, Xan? I don't want you to leave, but I won't leave Angel,"
Xander said as they watched the two vampires fight. When Xan didn't answer he
wedged himself into a huddle in the corner of the room.
Angel could sense his mate's
distress, but the demon caged deep inside him was crying out to subdue his
unruly offspring. Angel hissed at Spike
in game face, wanting to lunge at him and drink from him to re-establish his
dominance, but he knew Spike wouldn't go down without a fight.He hissed again, but backed away to corner
were Xander was huddled.
Spike laughed at Angel.
"Knew you were a poof," he said moving back to Xan who was still
standing by the punching bag.
His own Childe laughing at
him and looking at him like he was no threat made Angel snap.He lunged at Spike, pushing him again the
nearest brick wall with a loud crack.
Angel didn't even bother to talk, instead plunging his fangs into his
Xander started almost
subsonic whines as he started rocking in the corner. He hadn't thought Angel
would leave him so soon, but it was the next day and he had Spike in his arms
and was feeding from him.
Angel gulped down his
Childe's blood from the gash on his neck and pulled away to howl loudly.Blood dripped down his chin and he pulled
Spike after him towards his mate.
Angelus was more in control than he had been in decades.
asked. His eyes darting between Angel's snarling face and Spike's neck which was
currently being held right in front of him. He had no idea what was going on
and Xan's angry pacing off to the side was adding to his unease.
rumbled out the command. His Childe had
to be shown that his mate ranked higher than him. This would re-establish the hierarchy in his clan.
Xander started at the barely
contained violence in Angel's voice. He bent down and lapped at the open wound
on Spike's neck. He was used to Angel's blood already, but feeding from someone
else felt wrong. He got a small mouthful down before he pulled away with a
grimace. There was a faint resemblance to Angel in the blood, but he didn't
like the taste of it. He wiped the back of his mouth against his mouth as he
looked up at Angel, hoping that had been enough.
Angel threw Spike onto the
floor and his eyes were flashing fiery gold.
"My Mate! My Childe!My Family!"
"Angel, what's going
on?" Xander asked from the corner he'd huddled in again after Angel pulled
Spike away. He watched as Xan darted around Angel to grab Spike and pull him to
the side of the room.
Angel snatched Xander from
the corner and easily picked him up, to crush him against his chest.Still in game face, he pressed against
Xander's neck and rumbled, "My mate…"
yours," Xander answered. He still wasn't sure what was going on but he
knew that the answer to that comment almost instinctively. "Is he going to
be okay?" He gestured to where Spike was starting to stir in Xan's arms.
"That was barely more
than a mosquito bite for a vampire," Angel snorted.Spike's pride would be more hurt than
anything else and the worst he would have to deal with was conflict between
being a Childe and Master Vampire at the same time.
moaned from his spot in Xan's arms. He couldn't believe his Sire had managed to
best him like that, and let a human feed from him. He was raging and wanted to
destroy something. Knowing he was restrained by his chip as well as his Sire
just made the anger worse. His thoughts were interrupted when Xan thrust his
bloody wrist in front of him.
Spike seized the bloody
wrist, letting the newly familiar taste of his mate's blood comfort his wounded
pride. He started to gulp down the
blood, getting lost in the dance of the ruby liquid gliding down his throat.
Xan started to pull away
when he started to get lightheaded. He saw Spike's face twinge with a brief
flash of pain the chip fired lightly, before he wrist was released.
"Better?" he asked faintly while he tried to focus on Spike enough to
see if his wounds were closing.
"Yeah, pet," Spike
answered back, not even thinking about the use of the endearment.Right now his demon was screaming in his
head, but he couldn't attack Angel. Angel
had just reminded his Childe of his rank and if Spike wanted to stay in Angel's
territory, he'd have to submit at least the most basic level of respect.
"Xan, not pet,"
Xan mumbled quietly as he leaned back against Spike. He just wanted to go to
sleep with Spike near him and away from Angel. He could see Xander and Angel
moving around in the corner and it looked like their clothes were coming off,
but, for once, he was too tired to even think about initiating sex with Spike.
"My pet," Spike
repeated. He'd never told the boy home much he meant to him and he probably wouldn't,
but he wanted him to know at least a little.
Xan thought about arguing,
but he was too tired. Plus, he knew that it was true. "Yours, but still
don't like pet," he mumbled. He wasn't going to give in totally. He yawned
and snuggled a little closer to Spike. "Sleepy, hungry."
"Gonna get outta
here," Spike mumbled back, but his own speech was starting to slur.Sleeping on the floor of the combat room
wouldn't normally appeal to him, but Xan was close and his mate's blood was still
running through his system.
mean," Xan said as he and Spike slid down onto the floor. As tired as he
was he still tried to put himself between Spike and Angel.
Spike settled on to the
floor and pulled Xan against his chest, wrapping his arm around the boy's
waist. "I'll protect ya,
pet," he managed to mumble.
Xander hadn't been able to
hear what they were saying but he'd looked over every now and then while Angel
was calming him down. He was tired of getting so confused by things between all
of them, but as long as Angel kept coming back to him it was alright.
"This was important wasn't it?" he asked softly after it looked like
Spike and Xan were asleep.
Angel whispered back, still not calm enough to return to his human face
yet. "After the binding Wesley
cast on us, Spike needed to learn to respect your position as my mate.He might be barking about leaving, but he
"Good, I don't want Xan
to leave." He pulled himself out of Angel's grasp. The mere mention of the
binding had his whole body pulsing with need, but he had to make sure Xan was
okay first. "I need to get them a blanket. Xan will get cold sleeping
there even if Spike won't," he explained as he went to the storage locker
to find something to cover them up with.
"Spike always was my
most difficult Childe," Angel huffed under his breath.Now that he was tied down with Xan in his
life, his troublesome Childe seemed to be more stable at least.
"He's just like, Xan.
They both like to fight just to fight," Xander said. "But I think he
likes you just like Xan really likes me." He draped a blanket over the two
off them and scuttled back to Angel's side when Spike growled in his sleep.
Angel welcomed Xander back
into his embrace, petting the back of Xander's head. "The bond between a Childe and Sire is… difficult.Especially when they aren't fledglings
anymore. There was a time that Spike…
William was dependant on me."
"Kinda like I am
now?" Xander asked. He couldn't imagine Spike as anything other then the
"No, not exactly like
you," Angel smiled at his mate.
Xander didn't have a savage bone in his body, where as William the
Bloody, later to become Spike for his affinity for torturing victims with a
railroad spike, had been a terror.
Angelus used to call him his savage beauty and would relish and beat the
maliciousness more so into his Childe.
"He was never as sweet as you."
wasn't sure what time it was when he woke up again. The lights were out in the
training room and it was hard to see in the inky blackness even for him. He
could feel Xan wrapped around him and a blanket over them. He listened for a
second to make sure his pet's heart rate was back to normal after the blood
loss. It was still a little slow and he bit his wrist open and pressed it to
Xan's mouth. It would wake him up and give him back his strength. Plus, it
would make him horny and Spike wanted a good shag before he faced his Sire.
woke up as the blood slipped down his throat.
His hand seized Spike's wrist so he couldn't take it away.He was quickly becoming addicted to Spike's
blood and the effects it had on his body.
Spike could fuck him roughly, but he would heal quickly afterwards.
it," Spike moaned as Xan sucked on his wrist and started moving his body
against him in time to his swallows. "Finish up now. Gonna bend you over
and fuck you hard as soon as you've had enough blood."
answer to Spike's panted command, Xan bit into the healing wound to draw more
blood. "Never enough," Xan
ain't ya?" Spike let Xan take a few more gulps before he pulled his arm
away and pushed him face down on the mat they had been sleeping on. "Too
many clothes," he muttered as he pulled a knife out of his boot. Holding
Xan relatively still with one hand, he started cutting off his clothes. The
knife scored the flesh below the clothes in a few places and Spike's mouth was
watering. He'd have to remember just how much the chip would let him do as long
as it was foreplay.
you fucking talk too much!" Xan growled back. "You're acting like a
bunny with fangs! Fuck me
few more cuts and Spike ripped off the last of Xan's clothes. He started
licking each of the cuts, enjoying the blood and sealing the wounds. He was
pulling his own clothes off at the same time, and was naked by the time Xan had
been thoroughly licked. "Fuck," he grumbled as he lined his cock up
with Xan's ass and realized they didn't have any lube. Shifting quickly down,
he bit lightly into his pet's ass and shifted back up to rub his cock through
the blood collecting between the cheeks. It would still be painful for his pet,
but not more then he could handle with the vampiric blood he'd just had.
you don't fuck me, I'll fuck you!" Xander spat out the threat, but it lost
any hostility with the large groan he sputtered out when Spike rubbed his cock
against his hole.

"Much better. Stick to the moaning and you'll get in less trouble."
if you could do anything to me…" Xander snapped, but thrust his hips up to
meet Spike's thrusts.
stilled instantly and held Xan in place as well. "That's the point isn't
it, pet." He flexed his cock a few times without moving. "I could
just not do anything." One hand played over Xan's cock just enough to
drive him crazy with need but not enough to give him any satisfaction.
I'll fuck myself on your cock."
Xan tried to thrust back his hips to impale himself on Spike's
cock. He was so hard and desperate
stayed silent as he held them both still for another minute to get his point
across. Finally, deciding he'd waited long enough, he started moving again. The
thrusts were hard and fast. He knew he was causing some pain, but from the
moans coming from Xan there was a lot more pleasure. "Mine," Spike
hissed without losing his rhythm as they both started to get close.
"Always gonna be mine, pet."
your fucking pet!" Xan grunted. "I'm your mate and you belong to
pet, I do," Spike agreed. He was so close that he wasn't really even
paying attention to what he was saying. He thrust a wrist in front of Xander as
he leaned down so he could reach the stretched neck below him.

would allow. It was getting to the
point that Xan couldn't cum without tasting the blood of his lover anymore.He associated blood with sex and sex with
vaguely hoped his Sire's humans were in the hotel as he howled loud enough to
echo in the training room. By the time he was done and pulling out of Xan, the
boy was already falling back asleep. "Need to work on the sleeping thing,
pet," he sighed as he picked him up and started carrying him up to their
room. He made sure to walk through the lobby and enjoyed the comments coming
from the cheerleader. He wiggled his ass a few times while walking up the stairs
just to make sure she kept shrieking. Let his Sire deal with her while he and
his pet took a nap.

lobby carrying an unconscious Xan, he'd fled despite Cordelia calling him a

at him. "I know Spike has to be here because of the other Xander, but the
two of them need to wear clothes in the lobby. I don't want them scaring
customers away, or distracting them from paying us."

"What customers?" He
knew Cordy was obsessed with the almost non-existent profits of the agency
because more profit meant more money for her, but sometimes the girl really was

that we don't want to scare any of them away. Anyway, why are you trying make
sure Spike can keep wandering around naked?"
vampires tend to do whatever the hell they want to," Wesley sighed,
adjusting his glasses. "Besides,
both Angle and Spike are newly mated, so they'll still be in the first stages
of bonding, which happens to involve constant… conjugals."

definitely don't want to see you and Xander naked in the lobby." When
Angel didn't answer right away she turned to Wesley again. "So how long
does this fucking like bunnys phase last?"
consorts of vampires if they take regular doses of blood can live up to 150
years old, at least in documented Watcher records, perhaps longer.So I would say at least 100 years,"
Wesley said rather seriously.

asked, shocking Angel and Xander back into silence just as they were getting
ready to speak up.

don't need vampire blood to keep a woman satisfied."

the calculating look in Cordy's eye. "You two need to return the favor
if a lady or myself could move after love making," Wesley said in a deadly
serious tone, but he had a little smirk on his face. "The British have
always been underrated."
finally laughed as the three of them continued to verbally spar. "You two
are a lot cooler now," he finally said when he stopped laughing. There was
something comfortable about the playful arguments that reminded him of the
early days of the Scoobies, and it made him feel more at home in the hotel.

It was nice to have someone familiar around, even if it was Xander."Wesley on the other hand is still a
big dork-a-sorus. You should have seen
him trying to pull off leather, Xander.
So, now that you're gay, how do you feel about shopping?"

them here." He didn't relish the thought of trying to shop with Spike.

his position on the couch. "Stole the pants from Xander's closet.He won't miss them from all of the things
Peaches bought him. At least some
people buy their mates things."
tried didn't I, but you lot have a problem with me nipping some dosh. If I'm
broke I can't go shopping." Spike scowled at Xan. "Not that I want to
do something as poofy as buy you clothes anyway," he added quickly.
Xan snorted. "This coming from the man who was just dying his roots last
if you were a little more respectful you'd get pressies, too," Spike
snapped back. He was already starting to get hard and knew it would just take a
few more minutes of arguing before one of them jumped the other.

stand up to you," Xan said and lay back on the couch and spread his legs
wide. "I just think you don't appreciate me enough."
was just moving forward to show him exactly how he was appreciated when Angel's
bellow from the lobby interrupted them. "Sorry, pet. Sounds like the
cheerleader had a vision and the great poof wants us both." Spike grinned
at Xan's reaction to 'pet'. The boy would be wound so tight by the time he was
done they'd be shagging all night.

hear his latest insulting nickname for Spike, "I'd stop grinning like

an ax and a crossbow. They'd both actually been doing okay in their training
over the last few days, but neither of them had been allowed to help on a case

"We have to hurry because she saw it in the sewers under an elementary
and the twins get to come with this time?" Spike asked as he picked out
weapons for himself and Xan.

Xander said quietly. He was settling
the crossbow onto his back and axe into his belt. "He believes me."
by me. It's about time you two do something useful," Spike said as he
handed Xan a sword and a few throwing daggers. He didn't approve of giving
anyone crossbows, but wasn't going to bother saying anything about the one that
Xander had. "Watcher and gang boy already gone for the night I take

locks, ignoring Spike's comments about how he could have picked them, and they
headed down. Angel had warned the twins to stay behind both him and Spike. They
were there for the experience and to watch in the rare case that the Chimera
had anything working with it.

hard battle. Spike took a deep wound in
his side when she first of all knocked the weapon out of his hand with her
serpent's tail, then swiped him with her lion claws.
darted up to Spike's side and sliced her tail off when it came for a second
pass. Her enraged cry echoed through the room and she whirled on Xan,
forgetting Angel for the moment. Spike tried to push Xan to the side but he was
too slow as the claws arced back and ripped a huge gash across the boy's chest.
Xander screamed as his twin fell to the floor.
He was the one who finally struck the fatal would to the Chimera.First driving an arrow through her and then
driving Xan's fallen sword straight through her heart.
Spike cursed as he tried to slow the bleeding. "He's not going to make it,
Sire. I need to drain him so I can turn him." Spike knew letting him bleed
out was not safe and he couldn't bite if it wasn't part of sex.
drain him," Angel said without hesitation and knelt down before the fallen
boy. "But you can turn him. He'll
be your Childe."
right, now get on with it. My Xan dies and you know your Xander won't last
long," Spike said as he ran a finger though Xan's hair and tugged his head
to the side.

his every move. Xan's head was resting
in Spike's lap and Angel had to grasp the back of the boy's head as he sunk his
fangs into the carotid artery. The
blood tasted almost exactly the same as Xander's, but he could still tell the
soon as he was done, Spike shoved Angel out of the way and pressed his bleeding
wrist to Xan's mouth. "That's it, pet," he whispered when he felt him
start to suck. He watched as the cut across Xan's chest close up and heard his
heart stop. He wasn't sure how much blood to feed him. He'd never really paid
attention to those lessons because he never planned to have a Childe.

you'll put yourself in danger."

himself?" Spike asked without moving his arm.
drunk most of your blood, Childe, so the answer would be yes," Angel
sighed, moving over to pull a shaking Xander into his arms."Besides it's the blood you give him
over time that will reinforce that bond."

being trapped in the dark. Reminds us of getting locked in the closet when we

better to tell him the truth right off instead of shocking him later.

and Xander. "Don't think we really need to lock him up."

to control him."

still carrying Xan, and, after arguing almost all the way back, he had agreed
to let Angel chain him up.
was pale when she saw Xan being carried in.
She was so sick from the vision that she'd only been able to tell Angel
about the Chimera before she'd started to barf. They'd left before she was able to tell them that one of the
twins was going to be killed.
god!" she cried out and covered her mouth with her hand.
alright," Xander said quickly. "At least I think it's alright. Angel just
said we had to make sure Xan was chained up before he woke up."
up? What happened…" Cordy started
to ask and then a light went off in her head when she considered whom Xan's
lover was. "He's a vampire now, isn't he?"

you can get your ass out of here." He was acutely aware that he couldn't
protect Xan from humans and they were both vulnerable at the moment.

front of Cordelia.

not going to have Xander's soul ripped away from him to give to Xan. Spike and
I will control my grandchilde on our own. You may want to start wearing a cross
again for a while though," he said.

remembered Xander from the alternative universe.
was different. He's not going to be allowed to run wild this time," Angel
said. "Now please, leave us alone." They continued on up the stairs,
leaving a stunned Cordy and Wes in the lobby.
long before he wakes up?" Spike asked as he settled Xan onto Angel's
bed. His Sire had said on the way that
it only made sense because it was the most secure location in the hotel and had
restraints built into the walls. He'd
have to ask his Sire later exactly why it had restraints, but he couldn't think
about that right now.
I'd say late tomorrow night, but it could be a lot faster with him. Being split
like he was, I have a feeling he'll turn quickly just like he bonded
quickly," Angel said. "We'll all stay here and as soon as he starts
to wake up Xander can go heat up blood. We'll need a steady stream of warm, human
blood to start."
wanted to go out and get his boy a nice fresh, living treat, but knew Angel
wouldn't go for that. Looked like his
new Childe was going to living off bagged blood, just like his Sire.He was going to miss the beating of his mate's
heart and the gush of warm blood as he fucked him, but now his mate would
always be with him.
can you get Spike and I some blood. Get some food for yourself too," Angel
said. He wanted to get Xander out of the room for a minute and he wasn't going
to leave Xan and Spike alone at all.
got up and started to babble on his way out of the room."He can still eat Twinkies right?Xan likes Twinkies… he can dip the Twinkies
in the blood…"
grin on Angel's face at his mate's babble died as soon as he left the room.
"You do realize how difficult this is going to be?" he asked Spike.
"You're going to have to handle him carefully from the moment he wakes up.
I'm hoping by skipping most of the 'proper' steps in the creation of a Childe
he'll be calmer, but there's no way to know for sure."
ya mean by proper steps?" Spike hissed. "I'm not gonna beat or rape
him." Spike would never do that to
are the steps I want you to skip," Angel said with a quiet sigh. Spike was
going to be difficult as always, but this time he couldn't really get upset
with him. Angel knew if it was Xander chained up he would be having trouble
handling it himself. "You are going to have to establish your control
though blood… and so am I."
do you have to do with this?" Spike hissed protectively."He's my Childe!"
also my Childe's Childe. You know as well as I do that I have rights where he
is concerned and you'll need my help to keep him under control," Angel
said. "He's not going to get a chance to hurt Xander or the others."

not going to take him, Spike, but he will know to obey me if you're not around.
Xander's almost back so there's no need to discuss this anymore. We'll all be
staying here until he wakes."
Spike said after a moment. "I'll all work out, eh?"
hope so," Angel said quickly. "It's just a matter of time before
Xander gets turned to." Having shocked Spike into silence, he settled back
in his chair just as Xander opened the door.
was carrying a tray with three mugs filled with blood and one can of root
beer. He also had two spare bags of
blood, knowing with out being told that everyone would want refills."I brought Twinkies for Xan and
me," he said. "And brought
those little marshmallows Spike likes."
won't be awake for a while," Angel said, passing the third cup of blood to
Spike. "But Spike's going to need more blood then usual for a few days to
recover." He pulled Xander into his lap and they all sat watching Xan long
after they were finished drinking. Several hours later, Wesley came in to make
sure they didn't need him before he went home. Xander was sound asleep, curled
up in Angel's lap, by then and Angel had silently waved Wesley away.
woke up slowly, starting to run his tongue over his teeth and noted the sharp
fangs. Then he wrinkled his forehead
and felt the new ridges. "Holy
shit! I'm a fucking vampire!" he
snorted out with a laugh.
quickly roused Xander and sent him to the kitchen to heat up some blood. Once
his boy was out of the room he stood up and hovered behind Spike as he
approached the bed.
wasn't in pain from any injuries, but he was so hungry that he felt like he'd
die. His eyes flew open when he sensed
Spike and Angel approach. "I'm
hungry. I need something to fucking eat
getting you something now," Spike said. He was barely restraining himself.
He instinctively wanted his Childe away from Angel, out of chains, and allowed
to feed on humans like a vampire should.
this is evil?" Xan asked stretching his arms and testing the
restraints. "Don't feel like evil
incarnate. Just hungry… Hey, is that a
Twinkie? Score!"Xan spotted the sweet treat still on the
side of the bed.
I take the chains off, Sire?" Spike asked. He was running both hands over
Xan's face and chest now. There was no way his Childe was starting off with
bagged blood or a Twinkie. He was going to feed from Spike as soon as he was

him a little nostalgic. "One hand
know," Xan said thoughtfully while trying to rub against Spike. "If
you free me, we can take care him then go out and get something to eat. I
promise to share."
sighed heavily, "He stays chained up." It had been a long time since he'd been around a fledgling and
he'd forgotten what a handful they could be.
"And you can forget about killing me."
kill you, Angel," Xan said with a pout. "Just tie you up to play with
when we got back. Gotta keep things interesting for my Spike." He waited
for the shocked look on Angel's face then started laughing. "You're too
you're a rotten, spoiled fledge," Angel shot back. "And don't try
that pout on me. It didn't work with
Spike and it won't work with you."
snickered and quickly undid one wrist and tossed the key to Angel before
getting in bed with Xan. "I see you got some of my better qualities, pet.
Now drink up before Xander comes in with some human blood for you." Spike
held his wrist up to Xan's mouth as he talked.

Spike was closer, he was more likely to be able to tease him into fucking him.
was tempted, but he knew he had to exert his control at the start. Letting Xan
get his way on his first order would not be a good idea. "Not this time,
pet," he said firmly. "Maybe later after the others are gone and
you're unchained… or maybe still chained now that I think about it."
Xan said and started to purr literally.
He was so hungry that he didn't care how he got blood.He took Spike wrist and started to lick and
then bit down.
was still feeding when Xander walked in with the two largest mugs in the hotel
full of warm blood. "I don't look that bad as a vampire," Xander said
as he passed the mugs to Angel. He was fascinated by his vampiric self, but was
definitely not ready to get too close. He watched from behind Angel's back
while the warm blood was passed to Spike.
would look good in a paper bag," Angel said sincerely.
grabbed one mug of blood out of Angel's hands and gulped it down. "K, pet,
that's enough from me," he said as he pulled his wrist away and replaced
it with the other mug of warm blood. "Can you two get us some more?"
He looked over at Angel and Xander, wondering if Angel would be willing to
leave him alone with Xan or if they were all sleeping in the poof's room for a
felt the urge to hover over Spike and Xan, but Xander needed to be kept
calm. "If I leave you alone with
your new Childe, will you leave him chained up?"
now, yeah," Spike said, not really focusing on Angel. "Not going to
do something stupid now am I?"
Childe do something stupid? No…" Angel said sarcastically and then sighed
heavily when Xan growled at him.
tugged Angel out of the room and toward the kitchen. "He'd hurt me now
wouldn't he?" he asked Angel quietly once they were in the kitchen.
"I mean he's really a vampire with no chip or soul."
not sure," Angel answered honestly. "You're not just a regular human
to him. You're… the other half of his
old soul. It would be like biting
dunno, he kinda scares me now. Maybe it would be better if you made me a
vampire too. Then we'd both be the same again," Xander said. He knew Xan
had been better at him in training and stuff. He didn't want to get left too
Angel said carefully. "I don't want to turn you. You wouldn't be the same…."
not going to be the same and Spike doesn't care. If something happened to me,
you wouldn't just let me die instead of turning me would you?"
groaned heavily and held the bridge of his nose. Xander was just so damn sensitive sometimes… okay, all of the
time. "Of course, I would."
but if you decide you like Xan better as a vampire and want to turn me too I
won't mind," Xander said as he poured the large bowl of blood into four
mugs?" Angel asked, raising his eyebrow.

Maybe if we're nice to Xan instead of mean like most Sires are he'll be more
like himself," Xander said. "Vamp Willow told us about the me that
was vamped in the other world and he wasn't nice at all. I don't want Xan to be
moved closer to his mate and laid his hand on Xander's shoulder."I don't think either of you could
really be evil unless… things were done to you. We won't let that happen."
When it came down to it, Xander trusted Angel implicitly and if he said it
would be alright then it was going to be alright. "Do you want me to get a
room ready for us? I mean if Spike and Xan are keeping your room for the

carefully. He knew that even if he was
sleeping, that he'd be able to protect Xander if Xan if so much as licked him.
Xander's hesitated then forced a smile on his face. "If that's what you
want to do."
don't have to," Angel said quickly, sensing Xander's tension. "It's
just I don't want either Childe to get into trouble."
it's okay if you think you need too, but maybe I can just wait until you three
are all done then come in when you're ready to sleep? Unless you want me to
Angle sighed in exasperation. "Sleep as in, eyes shut and dreaming.That's all I wanted to do."
I know that that usually happens, but I don't really want it too unless you
think it's for the best then it's okay. I mean I still wouldn't like it, but
I'd understand. The blood is going to get cold if we don't hurry, we should go
back now. I can wear clothes to bed tonight right?" Xander babbled as he
started walking back to the bedroom.
Xan came up behind Spike and whispered in his ear. He didn't say it often, but he knew the reaction it would get.
shivered into Xan's embrace, instantly distracted from the conversation he was
having with Wes about prophesies. He wanted to make sure that he and his mate
hadn't gotten sucked into some world ending battle through Angel. He'd waited
until Angel and Xander were out on a date, and he snickered mentally every time
he thought of that. Poor Angel was wrapped around Xander's finger and Spike
used that fact to keep Xan out of trouble when he did something he wasn't supposed

it can be messy sometimes…" Xan whispered with a purr, his hand snaking
around Spike's waist and starting to undo his belt. "But it does usually
get pretty noisy."
no you don't," Cordy said when she saw Xan nibbling along Spike's neck.
"Didn't Angel tell your two there was no sex, no nakedness, and no
scariness like this in the lobby?"
poof is a big ol' prude," Xan laughed and his hand snuck successfully into
Spike's pants. "We’re just having
a little fun."
sighed and he watched them move toward the couch. "I'm not sure they're
listening to you, Cordy. I don't plan on being driven out of here while I'm working
just want to watch them, you perv," Cordy laughed and picked up a nail
file to continue what she prioritized as her most important project of the

the couch and started pulling clothes off. He'd never been able to resist an
audience. He could tell his boy was the same way about people watching, too.

eye after checking out certain of his assets.
probably meant both of you," Xan snickered. He wiggled his hips as Spike
pulled his boxers and pants off. He knew Spike like having him naked when he
was still dressed, at least until he got too excited then the clothes disappeared
Wesley huffed and his eyes snapped from the books he was looking at to Xander's
ass. "Some of us are… trying to work."

Xan's body. He deep throated his boy for a few seconds before continuing.

Now toss some lube over here."

tossed over a tube of lilac scented hand lotion. "Enjoy boys and I'm not taking the stains out of the
sofas. You spew it, you wash it."
Cordy…." Xan's voice trailed off into a howl as Spike dragged his fangs
along his cock. He was trashing around on the couch and knocked the pillows to
the floor. It was such a turn-on to know that the others were watching him
naked at Spike's mercy.

frantically. He didn't think the sex
between him and Xan could get any more intense, but now that the boy was his
Childe, it had.

vampires. As far as he knew nothing like this had been observed by humans
before and he couldn't very well pass up a chance to increase his knowledge. At
least that's what he was telling himself.

said absentmindedly. When he realized what he'd said he looked over at Cordy
and got even more embarrassed when he saw her smirk.
now that's a nice kinky thought," Spike purred, loud enough for Wesley and
Cordelia to hear. "Get a photo
album of me taking your ass nice n' hard."
yeah!" Xan moaned as he thrust back onto Spike's fingers. One nice thing
about being a vampire now was he didn't really need to be stretched. Just a
quick lube and he was ready. "Want you now! Want them to watch my Sire
claiming me again."
gonna claim you!" Spike howled and pushed his cock deep into Xan.

his fangs into the flesh. He knew Xan
would soon do the same, thus completing the cycle.
head bent forward to hover over Spike's neck. He'd learned to wait for a sign
that he could feed before sinking his fangs in his Sire. Some rules between a
Sire and Childe transcended the bond between mates, and he'd learned about this
one the hard way. Spike never really denied him though so it didn't bother him.
As soon as he felt a light touch on the back of his neck he bit into his Sire's

become something more with the blood.
Sex had become secondary to the blood.
Sex with a human was lovely, but sex with his own Childe was an
experience. It was the ultimate
combination of everything good about fucking and blood.Spike was almost there when he felt Angel
come into the hotel. Deciding he wasn't going to get in any more trouble if he
finished, he ignored Angel's growl and Xander's shocked gasp as he sped up his

called back over her shoulder, "Thanks for the show, boys.Wes is gonna get some! Knew he wasn't cute
enough to be gay!"
we're going to talk about this later," Angel warned as he let Xander pull
him up the stairs. He could tell his boy was turned on by what he'd seen, not
just trying to keep his twin out of trouble so he restrained his urge to

before he fell asleep still half on top of Angel.
Spike and Angel woke up at the same time when they realized that Xan and Xander
were gone from the bed. Since Xan had
been turned, they'd spent the nights together crowded into Angel's large bed.Both of them extended their senses at once
and heard a heartbeat in the bathroom. They could smell them too, but something
was off with the scent and both of them stalked toward the door as one. They
were both trying to find any threat that could have Xander so scared. Xan had
been so well behaved since he was turned that it didn't even enter Angel's mind
that Xan could hurt his twin so both of them were searching for outside
then threw open the door, they found Xander huddled in the bathtub.His knees were pulled up to his chest and
his face was streaked with blood tears.
He was rocking back and forth, his golden eyes shining in the darkness.
no, we're not supposed to be like this," he mumbled. "We were happy,
but now it's all wrong. We have fangs and a heartbeat and everything feels
wrong. Fix us, please."
Angel whispered in shock. He knew deep
down what happened without having to ask.
He could see a distinctive bite pattern on each of Xander's shoulders,
one marked the boy as his mate, but the other was exactly placed where Spike's
mark had been on Xan.
on, Xan, what's going on?" Spike asked as he reached out to pull him out
of the bathtub.

bints back in Sunyhell had anything to do with this and I'll make sure they're
killed slowly," Spike hissed. "Why don't you try to find out what's
going on, Sire, and I'll take care of Xan."
no!" Xander cried out frantically.
"Don't leave us."
not going anywhere, Xander," Angel said, emphasizing his name.
"We're all going back to bed and I'll call Giles from there." He was
fighting the urge to throw Spike out of the room and lock the door. Angelus was
screaming that another's taint was on his mate and it was hard to concentrate.
He just hoped Spike could control himself as well.
was licking his fangs like he was getting used to them.He looked between Spike and Angel, still
stuck in game face, but the eyes were much softer than Xan's had ever
been. "I'm hungry," Xander
started to push Spike aside, which got him a growl. "Silence,
Childe," he hissed then wanted to curse when Spike and Xander both shrunk
back. "Into bed, then we'll talk."
hungry!" Xander repeated a little more vehemently.Whatever happened had pushed the hunger in
him to new limits he hadn’t felt since he had first been turned.

"Just a little right now. We need to figure out what's going on," he
ordered as he felt Xander's fangs enter him for the first time.

his bloody lips. "Tastes different
than it did before. Richer…"

them. "It's close enough to dark that I can get out through the sewers and

bitterly. "Once he exercises Sire's rights on you he can break our bond.
You won't even miss me, pet."
my Sire and my mate!" Xander said.
He said it as forcefully as Xan would have, but with the vulnerability
matter, does it? Angel's not gonna share you and I'm not going to play the
puppy dog waiting for scraps again. Damn you, Sire!" he hissed. He went
into game face and stepped forward, hands balled into fists, before he
restrained himself. "No, even if I could kill him you'd never forgive me,
would you pet?"

"You're both important to me… the same… my head hurts.Why don't you just kill me instead of

"We don't share well and I don't know if it would work out."

"Stop being such an asshole, Angel. You don't know if it work out?
That's not your decision to make.
And you'd better fucking learn to share because I'm not giving either of
Spike said as he stepped forward and edged around Angel. He was cursing himself
for being a fool and not getting out before it was too late, but he couldn't
leave his boy. He wouldn't leave unless Xan told him to. Once he was close
enough he offered his neck. Blood was the best way to fight the poof's
influence on his boy.
got up from cowering position in the tub to stand. He had to stand to take blood from his Sire and he had ever
intention of taking blood from Spike.
He was still hungry, but he also craved the closeness and reassurance
for their bond. Shifting close, he put
his hand behind Spike's head and slowly sunk his fangs into his lover's neck.
growled behind them but didn't interfere. For once Spike had gotten things
right. If either of them killed or drove the other away, Xander wouldn't forget
and he wouldn't forgive. So he kept his hands at his side and waited for them
to finish. They would have a long talk soon enough, and then he was going to
scare the hell out of the Slayer and her friends. He was thinking he might even
hurt them a little.
pulled away, licking his lips.
"You'd better fucking learn to share," he muttered. "Not
giving Spike up."
Angel ground out as Xander stepped out of the tub. He and Spike went back to
the bedroom with Xander, using him as a buffer. Angelus was closer to the
surface then he had been in a while and Angel almost wanted to let him out to

down onto the bed and scratched at his skin.

dropping his eyes from Angel's as they stood on separate sides of the bed.
"If not then we can call your Watcher in."
mean you want Wesley to try and separate me again?" Xander asked.He wasn't sure how he felt about that option.He was upset at suddenly being forced
together without warning, but he did feel whole and stable again.

safe for you like this. Once we're sure you're safe we can decide what we want
I want now is to go back to sleep," Xander huffed.His head really was pounding and he was
laying spread eagle on the mattress.

snarky pout, "I want to go to sleep with you on one side and Angel on the

to call Giles. He was a little pissed
off that Angel thought he'd fall apart.
can be a bastard, but he's right. Dunno what happened to you and I don't fancy
the idea of you going to sleep and not waking up." Spike brushed his
fingertips over the barely visible ridges on Xander's face. He wondered if they
were permanent or if his boy was just staying in game face unconsciously.
"Not sure if you could even be turned again if it came down to it,

came close to his mouth. "But I

in. He scowled at Spike then settled down on the other side of Xander.
"I'm going to call Giles first." He leaned over Xander for a brief kiss
before pulling back. He didn't even realize he had been in game face since
Xander had fed from Spike.
would they change me back without even asking?" Xander blurted out
suddenly, assuming already that it was them.

said. "Isn't that right, Sire?"

"I think they're cursed," Angel agreed and then held up the
mobile phone to punch the number in. "I

dialed the phone. "I mean, I'm okay so there's no reason to kill them is

them all for hurting his mate.
Spike snorted in disgust. "They were already warned not to mess with my
Xan and if they did I'll handle them if you won't. It's my right to avenge
threats against my mate and Childe, Sire. You can't tell me not to."
I can," Xander whispered to Spike. "Now make the call, Angel.Let's find if they did it, then I decide

"And oh, hello. Nice to
talk to you too, Angel."

was used. There could be… side effects due to some changes Xan went
through," Angel said. His voice was a promise of barely contained violence
and he hoped Giles stopped pissing him off.

them not to tried anything… if they even…"

I decide we need to come up there, none of you are going to like it."
be just a moment…" Giles said and then put down the phone.Angel could hear him walking away and
yelling in the background. At one point
he heard Buffy accuse of him of acting like Ripper. A few minutes later Giles came back to the phone and simply said,
"They did it."
the growling sound Spike was making and the resigned look on Xander's face they
had both heard. "Get them on the phone with Wesley. Have them explain
exactly what they did. I want you to go over it too. Figure out if…" he
paused, not sure how this was going to go over. "Figure out if the fact
that Xan had been turned and Xander now seems to be a living vampire is going
to be dangerous to him."

figure it out and stay in touch with Wesley. He'll be calling you in a few
minutes after I get off the phone with him," Angel said. He could hear the
phone start to crack and forced himself to relax slightly then hung up. He
quickly dialed Wes's number to explain things to him.
slammed the phone into the hook and whirled around to glare at Buffy and Willow
with Ripper's stare "What in the
hell where you thinking? You could have
killed the boy!"
okay, isn't he?" Willow asked hesitantly. "I checked the spell really
carefully and there shouldn't have been any side effects. Is he coming

sounds like one of the boys was turned.
You didn't figure that into your stupid little plan."

can give him his soul too then we're going to stake Angel and Spike. You told
us he'd be protected with them."

alive. There appears to have been some
aberrations when the merge occurred. My
best educated guess it that he's now some sort of human, vampire hybrid.Now tell me exactly what you did?Tell me where you got this spell from and
the exact ingredients you used so I can tell Angel."

"We did it before we came over and I didn't have time to put everything
away because it took longer then we expected. If I hadn't sped it up we would
have been late."
grabbed the spell out of her and quickly glanced over it."You silly little twit!You rushed through a transformation spell of
if we were late you would have asked us what we were doing and I didn't want
you to yell at us. We just wanted to fix Xander so he'd come back," Willow
I'm yelling at you now! And it wasn't
your right to try and change him back.
Tell me at least you measured the crocodile dung correctly?"
checked everything twice," Willow said as the phone started ringing.
"I'm sure it would have worked fine if Xan had still been human."
just a bigger freak now!" Xander snapped when Angel shut off the
phone. He'd heard Giles shock when
Angel had told him briefly had had happened to him.
anger vanished when he realized just how upset his mate was. He trusted Wes to
take care of things with the Sunnydale crew. He was going to focus on making
sure Xander was okay. "You're still my… our mate," Angel amended.
"And you're not even close to a freak. You're beautiful like this."
He moved them so they were all lying down with Xander in the middle.

marks. "What kind of human… or
whatever the fuck I am carries the marks of two vampires?"
you need to stop worrying. Angel's got a soul, I've got a chip, and you've been
claimed as a mate by two vampires," Spike said with a snort. "You
tell that to anyone who understands what a claim mark is and they wouldn't
think you were the strange one."
now that I'm… whatever the fuck I am," Xander repeated and continued to
argue. "Now that I have a beating heart, what if I die of old age?I can't leave either of you!You need me."

knows what he's doing." Angel pulled Xander's face against his neck.
"Feed from both of us and then we'll all sleep."

lick Angel's neck.
didn't answer as he felt his mate's fangs slid into his neck. Spike's eyes were
on both of them and Angel had to fight to keep a smirk off his face. He knew
Xander would be feeding from Spike next and there was no need to egg him on. He
closed his eyes and let Xander feed as long as was safe before gently tugging
him off and rolling him into Spike's arms. "Spike's turn," he said
right," Spike growled and decided to test exactly home much of his Xan was
left. "Get over here, pet."
can call me pet. I'm used to that," Xander said as he rubbed up against
Spike. The blood was making him stronger and more confident again. "Don't
know if we like you calling me that though." He held Spike's head for a
minute then darted down to start feeding from him.
bite into Spike much harder than he had with Angel and Spike noticed, moaning
loudly from Xander's efforts. One of
the things that had unsettled Spike about this Xan was he was far too
nice. His Xan was a troublemaker and

was as weak as Angel by the time Xander was done and neither of them complained
when Xander pulled them up against him on each side until they were all pressed
tightly together. Even with all the blood, he was exhausted as well and just
wanted to fall asleep knowing Angel and Spike were close.
Xander's whisper drifted into both Angel's and Spike consciousness.Xander was taking turns nuzzling between
their necks, nipping and biting. He
wasn't as hungry as he had been, but his body was still coping with the change
and needed more blood. He didn't want
to feed from pig's blood or regular blood when they were right there.And he knew they'd let him because both of
them usually let him get away with anything, especially when he called them
'ell, Xan," Spike moaned and arched his neck for his boy. He wasn't
totally awake yet, but if his boy wanted to call him 'master' using that tone
he could feed all he wanted.
hungry, Master…" Xander whispered and nipped again harder at Spike's
skin. Even though he wanted to bite, he
knew he needed Spike's permission.
ahead, pet," Spike said, pulling him tight into his neck.
grunted happily and sunk his teeth into Spike neck. Angel woke up to watch Xander feeding from his Sire and felt a
spike of jealously, then concern. Spike
might have bitched and moaned, but when it came to his Childe, he would give
the boy nearly anything. "Xander…
don't over feed."
could feel Spike getting ready to respond so he lifted his head and licked the
puncture wounds closed before twisting around to face Angel. "You want
your turn too, Master?" he purred. His tongue was tracing lines up and
down Angel's neck, waiting for permission, and he was thrusting slowly up
against Angel then back against Spike.
Angel also was wrapped around Xander's little finger. "Okay, but just a little…" Angel said, grasping the
back of Xander's head.
could hear the knocking at the door while Xander slowly fed, but he refused to
acknowledge it. He'd been more then a little jealous when Xan had been such a
well behaved Childe for Spike. As much as he'd shared with Xander there was
another level of intimacy with mutual feeding between vampires. He didn't want
to stop Xander a second before he had to.
whimpered against Angel's neck, now more nursing for comfort than really for
feeding any longer. "Shush, it's
okay Childe," Angel whispered, not being able to stop himself from calling
the boy Childe. He wished he had been
the one to turn him, but at least the boy was of his line.

going to say anything to whoever was knocking. He spooned up behind Xander and
started to nibble at his neck. "We'll take care of you, Xan."

the threesome. He coughed loudly and
stuttered, "I have some information… about… the transformation."
up a seat, Watcher," Spike said. "I'm sure Angel is paying attention
even if it doesn't look like it."
up, Spike," Angel growled with a tint of affection. "Spill it,
Wes. If it's something Xander shouldn't
hear, then give me a few minutes and I'll meet you in the office."
no actually, he should hear this too. I'll just wait until he's done so we can
talk," Wesley said as he sat down on the chair and started thumbing
through his notes.

his hand through Xander's hair. Fledges
always preferred the blood of their Sire or at least of their line over the
blood of a human. It was an addiction
that most Sires broke quickly.
alternate between you and Spike so you could take turns getting more
blood," Xander said with a smirk as he pulled his mouth away from Angel's
neck. He could feel both Angel and Spike's eyes on him as he slowly licked the
traces of blood off his lips and fangs. "So what's the news?"
Willow selected the correct spell as far as I can tell," Wesley said
quickly, eyes dropping down to his notes.
"But there appears to be problem.
She rushed through the spell and I think threw the timing off…"
Xander in danger?" Angel growled out loud enough to silence Spike's
mumblings about gutting them.
not per say…" Wes carefully. "It's just that the transformation was
thrown off. That would explain the
abnormalities…" Wes tried not to look at Xander. The boy's game face had faded to display soft ridges above his
nose, but his canine teeth were still prominent fangs and his once brown eyes
were flecked with gold.
he's gonna be fine, and all they did was make it so my boy looks this eatable
all the time?" Spike asked. He knew Xander would get upset about the way
he looked if given a chance to brood. Rolling so he was on top of Xander and
half on top of Angel, he shifted into game face and kissed him. "Fucking
really think so?" Xander asked, showing more vulnerability in his combined
state than he ever would have as Xan.
right, pet," Angel said, snuggling up against the two of them. "Don't
think there'd be a vampire out there who wouldn't want you. Not that they can
have you." Once Xander looked a little calmer he twisted to look at Wes.
"That's the only side effect, right?"
might be another abnormalities," Wes said softly. "Now I can't be
certain, but I've been researching other human-vampire hybrids.It is a very rare phenomena, but there are a
few recorded incidences in the Watcher records."
bloody tease us, Watcher. What else you got to tell us," Spike said. He
didn't like the way his boy tensed up at Wesley's words and wanted to get this
over with so he could calm him down. After that he'd think about making some
calls to some demons that owed him to see what they could do in Sunnydale.
reactions of a normal vampire may be affected," Wesley explained.
"For example, he might be able to go out into the sun, but he will be much
more vulnerable than a normal fledge.
And he'll most likely need regular food and blood to survive.But this could all be a theory, mind
of that sounds overly dangerous," Angel said with clearly forced patience.
"As long as he's not in any danger from the spell we can worry about the
details later. Can you inform Giles for me? Tell him we may pay him and the
others a visit soon."
and I have already arranged to rent a car for the event," Wesley informed
him, starting to gather his papers.

stuck you back together without asking," Spike said. "They just need
to have it explained to them that you belong to us now, right Sire?"
Angel growled. Having Xander feed from
him had had a very distinctive effect and having his favourite Childe in the
same bed didn't hurt either. "Now
get out of here, Wes. We're not done
dropped his notepad in his haste to get out of the room. "Don't forget he
needs human food too, and soon," he blurted out as he tried to grab all
his notes and escape. "Before you get started would be best." Wes
about ran out of the room.

his stomach growled as he thought about melting some chocolate chips over a

Xander a quick kiss. "Go get some food, pet. Spike and I need to work a
few things out while you get some human food. Do you mind bringing some blood
back with you?" Angel wasn't sure if Xander was going to complain about bringing
blood like Xan used to complain to Spike.
not," Xander smiled at Angel.
"Especially after I just fed from you."
turned to Spike after the door had close and sighed when he saw how guarded and
suspicious his Childe was. "I'm not going to take him from you, Childe.
There's no way he'd give you up and I don't want to drive you and I apart like
that again." Angel reached over and grabbed the back of Spike's neck,
pulling him closer. "Can you accept sharing him with me?"
you can stop treating my like a bloody fledge!" Spike grumbled, but didn't
struggle away from his Sire's grasp.
are my Childe and you always will be. All I ask is you acknowledge that and
I'll avoid playing Sire as much as I can. Xander needs both of us supporting
him and I'm willing to compromise some to make sure he feels safe." While
he talked, Angel moved until his mouth was hovering over Spike's throat. He
wouldn't force it, but Spike needed to allow him to re-establish both their

"Maybe you playing Sire a little bit wouldn't be so bad.I'm not sayin' I need taking care of or
anything, mind you."
grinned against Spike's neck before he bit. He took enough that Spike could
feel it, then pulled back. "Missed that," he said with blood still
showing on his fangs. Before Spike could muster a retort, he pulled Spike's
face to his own neck. "Feed, Childe." It had been a long time since
he'd allowed Spike to feed from him and not since his days as a fledge had he been
allowed to drink from anything other then his wrist.
though he didn't need to breath, Spike made a short gasping sound.He didn't even bother to make a snarky
comment, not wanting to give up this chance for anything right now.He wanted to taste his Master's blood again.
fought the almost instinctual need to stop his Childe before there was a chance
he would be strong enough to defeat his blood weakened Sire. There was no need
to fear Spike like that anymore. He felt Spike switch to a slow nurse after he
realized he wasn't going to be shoved away, and for a moment regretted being
the eldest of his line left. He didn't want any of them back, but he was
jealous of the sensation he knew Spike was feeling.
actually closed his eyes and continued to nurse on Angel.So what if he moved a little to cuddle to
the still familiar body? It didn't mean
anything. He was still a Master Vampire
in his own right. If he had known he
was softly purring, then he might had reconsidered his concern.
managed to almost bounce as he came back into the room even though he had a
tray with three mugs of blood, a small pile of Twinkies, a bottle of chocolate
syrup, and two sandwiches. When he saw his Sire feeding from Angel he stopped
and smiled at Angel, a silent 'thank you' in his eyes. Then his smile twisted
into a smirk. "If you two are done kissing and making up, I brought food
for all of us."
broke away from Angel's neck when he heard Xander's voice.He was still purring and his eyes had a
distinctly dazed quality. "Just…
just… taking a little nourishment, that's all." Even his normally perfectly quaffed hair was sticking every which
way. Xander suspected he must look very
much the way William used to when he was first turned.
tastes good, doesn't he?" Xander said in a deep whisper as he slid onto
the bed and between the two of them. His coordination had improved even over
what Xan's had been and he twisted while moving to end up sitting between them,
still holding the tray. Once it was balanced on his legs, he picked up two of
the mugs of blood and handed one to each of his mates.
okay," Spike mumbled and took a sip of the warmed blood, then
cringed. It was like drinking a fine
wine and switching too bad stilled potato hootch.
talked to me a little more while we were getting food," Xander said with
his mouth full. He was alternating bites of the sandwiches and Twinkies.
"It actually sounds pretty cool. I'm not too sure about the eyes and the
fangs and the ridges being a full time thing but as long as you two like it
then it's okay. He said I'll have most the strengths of a vampire too, but
fewer of the weaknesses. He said we should try to keep Wolfram and Hart from
finding out about me as long as possible though."
Wolfram and Hart!" Angel growled.
Now he had two more members of his family to protect.Spike was his Childe and couldn't fight
humans with that chip in his head, thus re-triggering all of his instincts
towards his offspring. Xander probably
was more than capable, but he couldn't get the image of his sensitive Xander
that he had first mated out of his head.
haven't bugged us over the last few weeks," Spike said. "Maybe
they're scared of me." His voice got calculating. "Though, that would
be a good reason to get rid of this chip now wouldn't it, Sire?"
it would," Angel agreed, sipping at his own blood.He noticed that Xander hadn't even bothered
to bring him pig's blood. "But we're not going to even try that until we
have a completely safe method."
can do it!" Xander said suddenly. "She figured it out a few weeks
before all this started, but Buffy was going to stake you if we got rid of it.
I didn't want to tell you when I thought Angel would throw you out without the
chip." Xander was trying to calm down an angrily growling Spike all the
sudden. "Now that Angel's okay with it we can make her do it. She owes us
and I want that chip out too, but I couldn't risk having to choose between the
two of you before."
the more reason to take a trip to Sunnydale," Angel answered in a tone
that was far too calm to be genuine. In
fact, he was imagining new ways to tear the Sunnydale crew new assholes.
Spike, it will all be okay and you'll have the chip out. You're not really mad
at me are you?" Xander said. He'd actually stopped eating for a minute to
make sure that Spike was not too upset with him. He knew how badly Spike had
wanted the chip out and felt bad he'd kept this from him.
had to admit this combined Xander had his moments. His own Xan wouldn't have looked at him with those golden and
chocolate brown puppy dog eyes.
"No, not mad at ya pet."
I want to have sex with you later. Well, you and Angel then Angel and you then
we'll see," Xander said as he started eating the rest of his food as fast
as he could.
mouth hung open a little bit and he leaned over to whisper to Angel."The boy's a bottomless pit and I think
he's more… well, not sure of what to call it, but he's just more like
whole again," Angel agreed with a smile. "It may take both of us just
to keep up with him if he has the sex drive of an early twenty's human and a
new Childe. Should we let him finish eating before we start?"
looked at Xander who was already hard and licking whip cream off of his fingers
from the Twinkies. "How could he
get a hard on from eating that?" Spike asked in amazement.He was starting to feel old and was starting
to understand both the aggravations and joys of being a Sire.
you start now I won't get my desert," Xander pouted. He picked up the
bottle of chocolate syrup and popped the cap. "I wanted Angel and Spike
sundays for desert." The bottle was tilted on it's side over Spike's
chest. "Can I have desert, Master?"
hell, pet!" Spike growled, instantly transforming into game face and
getting hard so fast it almost hurt.
"You can have whatever the hell you want."
bit his lower lip and scrunched his face up as he started to drizzle the syrup
on Spike's chest. When he was done there was a slightly smudged railroad spike
on his Sire's chest. Once he was done he twisted around to kiss Angel.
"Wanna share my desert with me, Master?"
smiled at Xander's antics. It had been
decades, well actually since he'd left Spike since he'd had such an exuberant

saw where the chocolate was starting to run and leaned down lick up Spike's
side to his chest. "Yummy," he said flashing Angel as smile as they
both bent down to start cleaning the syrup off.

one," Spike mumbled and tried to stifle a moan as Angel licked his nipple.
had most the chocolate craving, but he was too shy to do this with Angel,"
Xander mumbled. "Don't worry, Angel, it's your turn next. I just haven't
decided if we should do right after this or if I should see what the chocolate
tastes like on Spike's dick."
sure Spike will give you whatever you want…"Angel chuckled with amusement
and then bit down on Spike's nipple hard.
It have been decades since he'd bedded his Childe, but he remembered
that Spike had always like that. "I know I will."
howled as the cool syrup splashed across his cock right after Angel bit into
his nipple. Xander nudged Spike and handed him the bottle. "Get Angel
ready for us, Sire? I need to clean up this mess," he said before starting
to lick the chocolate of Spike's cock.

hand. Xander was already doing wicked
things to his cock. Angel flopped back
on to the bed next to Spike without any grace.
"Close your eyes. Gonna be
took one more look at Xander before he closed his eyes and took an unneeded
breath. He wasn't used to waiting like this. "I'm sure it will be
enlightening," he said with a smirk. "Then again, as long as you two
clean it off, I don't care what you draw."
a shaky hand Spike started to spell out something on Angel's chest.He normally would have been chuckling with
delight, but he was too busy groaning at Xander's talented tongue."What you think, pet?" Spike
asked, waving his hand at the chocolate POOF spelt out on Angel's chest.
you're a bad, bad vampire, Spike," Xander said after a few more licks.
"I think the only thing we can do now is clean that off." He watched
Angel's eyes go from annoyed after reading what Spike had written to glazed
when Spike started cleaning him up. He flashed Angel a sweet smile that would
have looked in place on the old Xander before joining Spike.
I can clean it up," Spike answered and lap up the F in POOF."Wouldn't be me if I didn't give him a
bit of trouble."
they were done cleaning Angel off, Xander sat back on his heels with both of
them staring at him. He enjoyed the attention for a few seconds. "Can I
decide what I want to do next, Masters?" he finally said when they looked
ready to pounce.
do you want, Xander?" Angel asked.
He had this over whelming urge to lick the boy's ridges.
want you to fuck me, hard," Xander purred. "While I'm blowing Spike.
Then, if you both feel up to it, you can switch positions." He knew he
belonged to both of them now, but that Angel should be the first to fuck the

looked at the chocolate syrup for a minute then shook his head. "Going to
have to get chocolate flavored lube," he muttered as he tossed it aside.
As tempting as it was, he knew it wouldn't work too well. He grabbed some lube
off the nightstand and squeezed some out onto his cock. Xander had been
stretched enough to take him without preparation if he started slowly and the
addition of the vampire wouldn't have changed that.
in the mean time had scrambled eagerly to get on all fours to crouch in front
of Spike. When he had been separated
this never would have happened. Xan had
thought of it as a possible sexual escapade, but Xander didn't want to share
Angel because of his insecurity.
started to growl with frustration when Xander placed his head right over his
cock. The warm, moist air was driving him crazy but the boy wasn't moving.
"Gotta wait for Angel," Xander said after a loud growl from Spike.

here if you don't get his arse ready fast."
you were always impatient." In some ways this was Xander's first time with
each of them and he was going to do it right. Taking a firm grim on Xander he
leaned over a little. "You ready for us to make you ours, pet?" he
asked quietly as he let the tip of his dick tease Xander's hole.
yeah… please?" Xander started to beg, trying to rock back on Angel's
cock. He couldn't help that whenever he
was interacting with Angel, he tended to be more submissive, while when Spike
was dominant in a situation, he showed more of his Xan personality traits.
tightened his grip a little and started to slowly slide into his mate. He
stilled again when he was all the way in, giving himself a change to calm down.
The period since the Xanders had re-combined had been, by far, the longest he'd
gone without this since Spike had shown up with both of them.

have. Angel was always careful with
Xander before the recombination.

mouth. "Xan liked it rough and he's mostly vampire now." He could see
that Angel wanted to let go but still wasn't sure. "It's what he
was what cinched it for Angel and the way Xander was thrusting back his
hips. He was already eyeing Xander's
shoulder and thinking about how wonderful it would be to bite harder than he
ever had before with his mate when he came.
moaned happily around Spike's cock when Angel increased the speed and force of
his thrusts. There was no fear of them getting board of him or picking the
other him. He could judge how close Angel was, and, as soon as he got close, he
pulled off Spike and used a hand on Spike's shoulder to pull himself up some.
"Want you both biting me at the same time," he said while his other
hand continued to push Spike to the edge.

Angel rumbled in agreement as he started running his tongue over the side of
Xander's neck with his claim mark.
Xander tried to urge them on. He wanted
to cum and feel their fangs sinking into his flesh.

Childe, but he knew better then to try to bite first this first time so he
waited for Angel.
locked eyes with Spike, signaling that they should bite in unison.The blue eyes he was starring into were
still the eyes of his beloved Childe, even though now they carried the pain,
wisdom and power of a Master vampire.
Spike was even more compelling like this than even maybe he had been as
a fledge. Now Spike was willing to give
in and not have to be forced.
screamed and started to come as soon as he felt both pairs of fangs slice into
his neck. He knew both his mates were coming too, but barely noticed it as his
orgasm just kept going as they both slowly fed on him and alternated deeper
pulls. It had never felt anything close to this with either Spike or Angel.
and Angel came only a few seconds later, their eyes still locked together.As they collapsed into a pile on the bed,
Angel felt whole for the first since he had gotten his soul back.He kept licking at Xander's wound, almost
nursing like a fledgling.

pressed back against Angel and pulled Spike up against him before falling
we weren't already dead, the boy would be the death of us," Angel mumbled
sure they're not going to try to stake me, or Spike, or you?" Xander asked
again as they finished dressing. Cordy had started yelling ten minutes ago when
they hadn't shown up in the lobby on time for the trip to Sunnydale, and they
were trying to rush. Xander was nervous about anyone other then his mates

tone. He saw Xander buttoning up his
shirt and batted his hands away to finish the job for him.

door. "Wes already saw you, even though you don't remember it, and Cordy
and Gunn are not going to have a problem with you." He grabbed Xander's
hand and started tugging him out of the bedroom and down the stairs as soon as
Angel was done.
still think I look like a freak…" Xander complained."Maybe if I wear some big sunglasses
they could hide my ridges…"
we like the way you look and you're not going to hide it unless you need too,
and there's no need to hade it around my people," Angel said in a voice
that both his boys knew better then to argue with. He moved ahead of the other
two as they stepped into the lobby and gave everyone a warning glare before
Xander could step in.

like Xander expected, instead she gave a delighted squeal."Wow, Xander! You look so exotic. Love
the eyes! I wonder if we could pierce

over. "Though I could think of a couple of other places I'd like to pierce

vampire was fetching. "Just for
that I should let Cordy pierce my ridges."
took one look at Angel's annoyed expression and stopped laughing. "Forget
I said anything. I'm not going to try to get anyone to pierce anything… any
vampires anyway," she said as she fixed Wes and Gunn with a glare, trying
to stay regain her poise. "The truck's all packed for the trip. I got the
biggest one I could find. It's a black Ford Excursion with blacked out windows

Xander asked with a smirk on his face.
When he smiled you could see his fangs.

then he was already making plans for how to sneak his head onto his mates laps

men jump out of the truck as soon as they were in front of the Magic Shop.
"Xander merging back into one person basically restarted the 'honeymoon'
period…." He let his voice trail off, knowing the last 'honeymoon period
was firmly stuck in all their minds.
thought you said the honeymoon period would last over a hundred years?"
Gunn said with a raised eyebrow.
"I'd call that more the horny vampire in heat period.They kept knocking the back of my goddamn
seat all the way here."
last time they calmed down a little after the first week," Wesley defended
himself while ignoring Angel's amused chuckle. "The journals are not very
exact on sexual habits as most Watchers are avoid that subject."

"Giles had this whole book on the sexual habits of vampires… I read
it after Spike moved in."

porch how he wanted them. Spike and Xander were flanking him and behind them
Wes and Gunn were flanking Cordy. "The Slayer can sense us already and I
don't need any of them coming out in the middle of a discussion about our
sexual habits." He knocked quickly on the door and waited.

face. "Please, come in.I've already had a discussion with the girls
Xander said as they all trooped in. He hadn't missed the look of surprise when
Giles had seen him, but at least nothing had been said about it. As soon as he
was inside he hissed. "How can you stand to be around her for any length of
time." Being near Buffy was causing a really weird tingle thing in his
blood that pulsed every time his heart beat.
like a mosquito," Spike shrugged.
"Annoying as hell, but you kinda get used to their irritating buzz
like it's any more fun from my side," Buffy said. Before she could say
anything else, Giles glared and her and she started over. "So how is
not okay, Buffy," Willow said. Her
eyes were locked on Xander's face and she started to cry. "Oh goddess, I'm
so sorry I turned you into a freak Xander.
Maybe we can fix it? I can get a
spell… or maybe a plastic surgeon…"
I hurt her just a little bit, Sire, please?" Spike said to Angel before
glaring at Willow. "He's fucking perfect they way he is, bint. Last thing
he needs is you lot trying another spell on him."
but… he's stuck like that!" Willow nearly wailed. "We could just put
some makeup on his ridges and some coloured contacts to hide his eyes.If he doesn't smile no one will see his fangs…"
won't talk anymore," Angel said in a deadly soft voice. "I still
haven't decided if what you all did to my mate warrants retribution, and this
attitude is not helping. You did explain to them the likely result of casting a
spell on my mate didn't you, Giles?" He had wanted to keep this on at
least a polite level, but feeling Xander tense up next to him was pushing his
limits. Giles at least would understand how serious this was now.
wrath of two Master vampires doesn't seem to work on these particular
girls," Giles sighed. "I
would like to make it perfectly clear that they went against my wishes."
Giles, it sounds like you're trying to throw us to the wolves, or the vampires
here," Buffy said half amazed as she listened to her Watcher distance
himself from her and Willow. "Angel's not going to do anything because we
were just trying to help. I'm sure if Xander stays here we can get everything
fixed in a week or two."

the surface and he was very close to attacking both the Slayer and her pet
knew things were getting out of hand and it was because both Angel and Spike
felt like they had to protect him. "Enough," he growled,
unconsciously mimicking Angel's tone. "We came to make sure you understood
not to cast a spell on any of us without permission again, and to offer a
trade. We'll call it fair and forget about your screw-ups after Willow removes
Buffy snapped. "We told you what
would happen if we removed his chip!"
mate is not being left defenseless. He'll be in L.A. and won't give you a
reason to stake him. Hell, Xan was soulless, chipless, and a fledge for over a
week and he didn't hurt anyone," Xander said in disgust. "If you
won't fix him there's no reason I shouldn't ask my mate and my Sire to take
revenge for a potentially harmful spell miscast on me against my will."
what? You've just given up on being
normal again? You've give up on your
old life? You've given up on us?"
Buffy challenged, getting up from the couch and moving towards Xander.

everyone from L.A. got up to meet Buffy's advance. "The evil we face is
L.A. is much better organized then it is up here. If Spike has the chip in, it
will get him killed. That will most likely kill Xander which will kill Angel
and leave the Powers That Be without a Champion. You already let him get split
in two, left him with Spike, then almost killed him with that ill advised
spell. Do you want to make sure he's killed now?"
suppose we could take it out…" Willow said in a quiet voice. "It
really is a simple spell, just obscure."

to the terms, with the understanding that Spike will not be feeding on

start another round of arguing. "I work with Spike and if it doesn't
bother me that he'll be chipless it shouldn't bother any of you."

cheeks. "I'll have you out of here tonight."
time, get a car that has an upgraded stereo," Gunn said after he finally
gave up trying to drown out the noise from the back of the Excursion with the
pitiful stereo . The three humans were all crowded into the front with Cordy
sitting on Wes's lap. All the other seats had been folded down to made a large
bed in the back.

orgy in the back, but rather more concerned with Cordy's very tiny mini skirt
which he was getting up close and personal with at the moment.
slapped Wes's hand off Cordy's thigh. "No, you want to do that you crawl
in back with them."
back the three vampires had just finished up their second round. "That was
a good start to celebrating the end of that fucking chip," Spike said once
he could form words again. He pulled Xander on top of him. "Course, just
watching you scare them all into taking it out was more than enough to get me
hard for you, Xan."
yeah, I was very butch and scary," Xander growled, snapping his teeth
playfully at Spike.
we're back I'll show you both how proud I am," Angel said, pulling both of
them on top of him and letting them wiggle into comfortable positions.
