Nor Iron Bars a Cage

A drabble for this month's Crime & Punishment theme.

Sort of a companion piece to my January drabble Oh, Bondage, up yours!.

Setting: BtVS season 6, around the time of Dead Things
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Astonishing as it may seem, Spike/Buffy, though mention of Spike/Drusilla
100 words
For the prompt: Imprisonment

Iron Bars Do Not a Prison Make



Makes him all nostalgic, this does.

What was it he said back then?

Oh yeah, that he'd tie Dru up and torture her until she loved him again.

Not that Buffy needs to tie him up. He's just as stuck as if she had – afraid to leave his crypt in case he misses her. And torture? No need for that either, though the endless waiting-will she come today, or not?- feels like torture anyway. And it's not like he doesn't love her already.

But it's the spirit of the thing that counts. Bondage and pain.

He's always been a romantic.

Oh darling! This is exquisite! Very Spike.

Mmmm and I just love watching him squirm, happily tormented by his love! YAY!

All Spike's romantic dreams are agonizing, aren't they?

I'm afraid so. At least, at this point in his life.
