Blame it on Willy

Prompt: Salamander's Blood
Setting: 'Lover's Walk'.  Spike's activities post-shopkeeper snacking, but pre-kidnapping.
Rating: G

Some of us are creating 'verses with our prompts.  And some of us are setting a prompt in every season, and trying to keep it within the realm of canon.  Here is S3.

Blame it on Willy

“Spike!  Buddy.  Pal!  How you doing?  Been a long time since we’ve seen you in these parts, not since that mess with Acathla.”  Willy was oozing full-on smarmy charm, an arm around Spike’s shoulders as he guided him to a corner booth.  “You’re looking good.  What can I get for you?  Here-”  He thrust a laminated menu into Spike’s hands.

“No need.  Just Jack.  And none of that watered down crap, you hear?  A full bottle will do me nicely.”  He’d already had a bite to eat, and now he was in search of less nutritive refreshments.  Here was the downside to feeding – it sobered you up, and Spike wanted none of that.

“You hang on to your menu, in case you change your mind.  We got all kinds of new drinks.”

Spike waved him away.  “Just the Jack, mate.”

Willy didn’t reappear right away, and Spike soon found himself bored enough to peruse the menu.  Ah, good old Sunnyhell.  With the demon population around here, a bloke could get his hands on just about anything.

Werewolf Blood
Otter Blood
Goat Blood
Salamander Blood

Spike did a double take.  Salamander Blood.  That was a new one.  Intrigued, he read on.

Health Boost for vampires!  1oz shot.  Grants increased resistance to fire and sunlight.  Said to have been used in creating the mythical Gem of Amarra.

He leaned back in his chair, absently stroking his almost-healed burns.

Resistance to sunlight.  Now, wouldn’t that be grand?

Hahaha, sounds to me like Spike's getting taken in by marketing! Nice idea and use of prompt.

Good marketing is key. :)

But perhaps this is why he seems so much more resistant to sunlight than other vamps. Daily doses of salamander!

But does it work? That's the important thing. And how is he going to test it?

Perhaps this is why Spike can be out and about with nothing but a blanket. He's discovered the secret. And also why he's always broke. Salamander blood ain't cheap. :)

Wouldn't it just?

If it works on dragon fire too then I better be investing, it's getting awful clammy out here...

LOL, you'll need a LOT of salamander blood...
