"But you do feel like it's ours, and not just mine?" Wesley asked.

Although it would have been easy to answer in the affirmative without actually thinking about it, Spike considered the question before saying, "Yeah, I think I do. We picked it together, and the fridge has always had my blood in it." He looked over at the window, through which sun was shining brightly, although not directly into the tub. "I can walk around with the shades up. Feels more like I'm not just fitting in around everything else."

"That's very true, pet," Spike said, aimlessly caressing Wesley's skin. "It's a big change for both of us."

"Most people wouldn't call New York peaceful," Spike said with a laugh.

"Not day-to-day, anyway. Would've had to go a lot further than this to get away from everyone." Spike's hands moved over Wesley's chest, palms resting briefly over his heart before sliding upwards to trace his collar bones with dripping fingertips.

"No," Spike agreed, idly exploring the planes of Wesley's chest. "I like you."

Spike shrugged, the movement making Wesley's body shift a bit in his embrace. "We've both got people we care about," he said carefully, re-adjusting his hold on Wesley so that he didn't go anywhere. He wasn't sure how touchy of a subject it was going to be for either of them.

"If it were up to me, I wouldn't see anyone but you, the clerks at the video store, and a bunch of teenagers in brightly colored take away hats," Spike said lightly. He knew that Wesley was going somewhere with the conversation, though, and wasn't likely to be dissuaded, even if it wasn't what Spike would have chosen to talk about in the bath.

Spike tried not to sigh. The topic made him feel like he was treading on eggshells so he wouldn't upset Wesley, which partially negated the relaxing effect of the bath and what had occurred before it. "If she ever comes to New York, I'd want to see her." He smiled a bit and added, "Like we could stop her from breaking down the door if she wanted to see for herself I'm not a big pile of dust. But I'm not in any hurry to rush across the pond, love. I've told you I'll stay here with you."

"I'm sure Dawn would jump at the chance," Spike replied, choosing to talk about the easier Summers sister. "She was complaining in her last letter about not being able to get a proper bagel."

Spike bent his legs up slightly, cradling Wesley between them. The movement sent gentle waves through the bath water, lapping against the sides of the tub. "Yeah, I think she would," Spike said. "She'd like to see the city." He hesitated and then added, "And me." That fact still surprised him, given the tension that had been between them in recent years.

His brows drawing together in a faint frown, Spike said, "I thought you didn't want to see her."

"I think she will," Spike said with something of a laugh. "She's very curious about you. I think she's figured out something's going on." He bent to kiss the top of Wesley's head. "Must be how I talk about you."

Spike smiled. "Well, I haven't hidden how much I like you and respect you. Aren't a lot of people I feel that way about; that's got to send up a big red flag for her right there."

"I'm afraid to think about it," Spike said with a nervous grin. "But she's heard how worried I've been about you. And she knows what I'm like when I'm in love. She's too smart not to be suspicious."

"Would you want someone who was like a little sister imagining your sex life?" Spike asked.

Spike sighed. "Yeah, I'd bet she's heard way too much about that." He closed his eyes for a moment, trying to block out the thought of what Buffy would have said about their tumultuous time together. "I'm not worried about her knowing; I'm worried about her giving me a lecture on human anatomy and then sending us The Joy of Gay Sex and a big case of lube."

"That and worse," Spike replied. "There could be diagrams."

"She's too bloody curious for her own good," Spike agreed. "I think she's confused about why I'm not with Buffy, but once it's out in the open..." The possibilities of her 'help' were horrifying and endless.

Spike chuckled and nodded. "Now you see why you're wrong about her not wanting to see you. She's going to have a lot of questions."

"She'll probably go through your closet, too," Spike said, wrapping his arms more tightly around Wesley. "She doesn't believe you don't wear suits every day."

Spike took a second to form his answer, since he didn't want to make it sound like Dawn had been giving him lots of details about Wesley's time in Sunnydale, which, maddeningly, she hadn't. "Is that a problem?"

"Why's that, love?" Spike asked, nuzzling gently against Wesley's hair. He was fairly certain that he knew the answer, but he wasn't going to pass by the opportunity to get Wesley to talk about his past.
