Summary: Buffy had thought things were looking up…
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Joss Whedon.
Everything should’ve been looking up; the bad stuff over and done. Buffy’s mom had come through her surgery well; she was recovering, and the doctor had sounded optimistic.
Life should’ve been returning to normal, slaying, college, boyfriend… She’d trusted Riley, completely, and all this time he’d been… What? Cheating on her? Yes, because paying vampires to bite him and suck his blood was a betrayal. He was going to the monsters she was sworn to kill to get something he apparently couldn’t get from her.
She’d thought she was out of the woods, never realising just how deep they were.
