"You smell like Africa. Like five hundred thousand years of summer and blood."

Xander's fingertips touched Spike's thigh and it was like being touched by five burning brands – five live wires. The blush of rising blood all under Xander's skin added a musky saltiness to the scent of him and Spike's eyes closed, involuntary. His mouth wet with saliva and his teeth itching. "I dreamed you had paws like a lion." Xander's other hand skittered up Spike's hip – ribs – settled on his chest. On the fine net of scars there, years old. "You had silver claws, and you tore my heart out."
