Faith: an act of betrayal
Title: Need
Word count: 100
Characters/pairings: Buffy, Faith (unrequited Faith/Buffy)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Buffy tries not to wonder what Faith needs.
Warnings: abuse implications (?)
Disclaimer: The boys and girls belong to Joss, even though I’m often much nicer to them than he is.
Author’s Notes: This was written for open_on_sunday’s current prompt, denial.

Buffy wondered sometimes where Faith was getting the money for the motel room. How she was eating.

Buffy wondered sometimes where Faith was from. Where her father had been. What her mother was like, other than drunk.

Buffy wondered sometimes where Faith had learnt that her sexuality was the first and best approach to meeting people and making them like her.

Mostly, though, she invited Faith over for dinner occasionally and slayed with her and tried not to think about what Faith might need. If she did, she’d have to notice the invitation in those dark eyes and parted lips.

Very nice. Even though Faith is the one with the unrequited side of the relationship, it seems like she's on Buffy's mind quite a lot which I like. Well done!

Oh yeah - I actually hesitated over describing this as unrequited, since Buffy is blates in denial! Thanks :)
