Loving Buffy is heaven, the sweetest of all emotions. She’s so young, so vibrantly alive, that it almost makes his heart ache to look at her, and if it were still beating it would pound out the rhythm of her name all day long.
The scent of her, the sound of her voice, the touch of her hand, so small and deceptively fragile… everything about her gives new meaning and purpose to his existence after decades of emptiness.
But loving her is hell too; it hurts, because however much he longs to be with her, his curse makes it impossible.
