One month.

 

It had been one long, arduous month since she’d crawled from her grave, since she had been expelled from heaven. Buffy’s head bowed, hair spilling over her shoulders and the sunlight warmed her exposed neck.

 

Buffy’s world was crumbling around her as the grave-dirt had crumbled over her, down on her. She flexed her hands, shook off the phantom feel of soil as a shadow descended over her. Her brows drew together, head lifting to frown up at the person, green eyes narrowing as the sunlight glittered around their darkened outline.

 

He stepped forward and her mouth curved down at the sight of the trench coat covering him from shoulder to calf as he moved to take a place beside her. His head inclined and she was struck by the prettiness of his features before she noticed the intensity of his gaze.

 

Blue eyes looked over her, into her and he stated with grave certainty, “You’ve been missed.”

 

“By who?” the sarcastic bite to the words made her flinch.

 

His hand rose to cup her cheek. “You know.”

 

She did know and Buffy’s jaw trembled as she buried her face in that offered warmth, offered comfort and wept.

I think she was and they do need cuddling.

*stage whisper* The next one should have the kiss.
Yay!
I'd so hoped to see some stories with Buffy and Castiel - I'm thrilled you've written this & I can't wait to see more!
Re: Yay!
Thank you! There might be more but the muse just got snagged by a Terminator bunny. *wonders off to try and catch it*
Eep,no OTP! Castiel wouldn't be able to be paired with anyone if canon is followed and I'm a bit of a canon purist. He can be an associate, a confidant and maybe, possibly a friend, but no pairings here. *pouts* Which sucks ‘cause he is so very much a hottie. ;)
LOL You have a point. Okay, cancel that OTP. lol

I've seen weirder stuff, though. Like Agent Smith having sex with a Mary Sue program.
I love this - there's just the right amount of detail and emotion to make this work.

That last half is the part that really gets me with Castiel offering comfort and Buffy taking it and I can see some sort of friendship between them - even if it's not always one of those smooth friendships because she doesn't always do as she's told and he would tell her things she wouldn't want to hear - but then what friendship has never had some bumps?

Sorry, I'm rambling! Anyway, I really liked this and now I'm off to read the crossover with TSCC.
