This story was up before, but now the lovely Katkin has offered to edit it for me, so I pulled it down and will be reposting it. Again I do not own them just like to play with them.
Sixteen years ago, William the Bloody (also known as Spike of Aurelius) and his mate Drusilla decided to enlarge their family. Spike chose a woman called Joyce as his childe, before changing her he decides to get to know her a little better and they create a child together. A baby girl by the name of Elizabeth. Spike decides to leave Joyce to the living and goes away with Dru, only coming back every so often to check on his daughter as she grows. What happens when Spike and Drusilla come back to America after three years to find that Elizabeth is now a vampire slayer. How will Buffy's watcher take the news that his slayer is the daughter of a most feared master vampire and also how are they all going to keep the council from finding out, especially when they send another watcher and slayer from England to investigate how Buffy is still alive after being killed by The Master. This is a different twist on the Spuffy relationship, it's a story of the love between a father and daughter. Nothing more.
After being run out of Prague, Spike and Drusilla flee to Germany. Where, in mid 1997 Dru becomes ill.
“Spike where are you.” Drusilla asks, the tone more ethereal than ever.
“I’m right here Kitten.” Spike answered his true love immediately, not wanting her to fear that she was once again alone. He walked quickly to her bed and slipped in between the sheets to let her feel the comfort of his body.
“I can’t see you.” Dru's voice clawed at his heart, the fear in it was almost too much for him. His once happy dark princess was growing weaker, only a third of the glorious demon she once was.
“Where almost there luv, rest now, for tomorrow we will see about getting you better. Your dark prince has found a man that will make you better.” He tells her, hoping against hope that what he said was true. He loved his mate and he missed their nightly excursions, he missed painting the town's that they past red, the deep crimson red of human blood.
“I feel so weak my Spike, Mummy needs you to promise one thing to her.” Drusilla turned to Spike, her eyes unseeing.
“Anything for you kitten.” Spike's lifeless heart lurched in his chest as his demon began growl it's fury at the possibility of loosing it's sire.
“If something happens to me, will you go to her? My grand-daughter will need you to take care of her too, Spike, promise me, promise that you'll to do as I ask.”
“Nothing is going to happen to you Princess, just wait and see, you'll get better. When you are strong enough to make the journey, I will take you for a visit. Sleep now, sweets and save your energy.” Spike placed a kiss on Dru's lips before he curled her up in his arms, holding her close. A short while after, knowing that she had her sweet William at her side, Drusilla fell into a restful sleep and Spike soon followed, knowing that she was safe in his arms for another day.
The next night.
“We found him, we found the doctor.” One of the minions yelled as he came into the disused factory where Spike and Drusilla were staying.
“Where?” Was all Spike could ask. If his heart had still worked it would have given a miss-beat at the hope that fled into his body, Dru would be all alright now.
“The other side of the city, he's set up shop in a warehouse.”
“Take me to him.” Spike demanded. Turning to another minion, he gave orders for Dru's care, “You stay with her, make sure she's never alone.” His growled words had the young vampire shaking and nodding his acquiescence.
Spike and the minion who had been charged with seeking out the doctor, left the the warehouse by the back exit. Taking no chances that a human could spot them as they climbed out the broken doorway.
After a bunch of twists and turns they arrived at the Demon Doctors hide out. Instructing his minion to guard the door as they came closer, Spike walked in without pause.
“Who are you and what do you want.” The Doctor asked, no tell belying the fact of the fear turning in his stomach.
“Name's Spike, my sire is really sick. I was told you could help.”
“Name's Raja, I will see what I can do but, you must do something for me first.” The Doctor watched to see if the master vampire took aversion to his order. The blond in front of him sighed impatiently but cocked an eyebrow all the same
“You must leave one of your minions to me, I need a few extra hands once in a while, consider it payment for services soon to be rendered.”
“Done, now come on.” Spike nodded, he'd thought that something like this would happen, no-one accepted cold hard cash any more, but the loss of a minion was easily remediable and nothing was too good for Dru. If it would, in the long run make her better.
Raja and the minion followed Spike out of the factory as he headed back to the warehouse where his beloved lay waiting in total darkness for her prince.
“Dru luv, the Doctor is here.” Spike took Dru's hand in a calming gesture, her blindness had made her jumpy with the loss of control it gave her.
“Oh Spike you came back.” Drusilla cooed, grabbing on to Spike's strong fingers.
“Always, now let the Doctor have a look at you.” Spike moved out of the way to give the Doctor some space.
Upon applying some potions to Drusilla, the doctor turned remorsefully to Spike, “I am sorry but I can’t help her, what ever is wrong with her is too great for me to cure. There is another Doctor who will be able to help you though. I know it is not much, but I have managed to take her blindness away, but as I said apart from this, there is nothing more I can do.”
“Where do I find him?” Spike asked, saddened that his Dru wouldn't be able to be cured by this man, but also grateful to him that he had given her back the use of her eyes.
“His name is Bacna and he is in Dublin, Ireland.” The doctor responded, relieved that the vampire didn't seem to want to kill him.
“We will leave tomorrow night. How much longer do you think she will have if we can’t get her cured?” Spike asked, it was a question he really didn't want the answer to, but he asked it all the same .
“I would say 2 years tops.”
“Thank you.” Spike said as he saw the Doctor out. Turning to his men he gave orders to pack up for the move. “ Tomorrow we leave for Ireland. Get everything ready, we'll start at dusk” With that he walked back to the room where Drusilla laid unmoving.
“Oh Spike I can see again.” Dru said in greeting as she heard Spike return to her.
“That’s great luv, it’s a start, isn’t it.” Spike replied hoping that with her sight returned she would start fighting the illness again.
“Yes it is and tomorrow we shall go off to find this other Doctor and he shall make me better.”
“That he will, that he will.” Spike said whilst kissing the top of her head. “Get some sleep, luv.”
After he was sure that Dru was asleep he headed out to get himself something to eat. Once back in the Warehouse, he himself started to pack up his and Dru’s things. Then with that finished and with a long night's journey ahead of him he too went to sleep.
Late the next day, an hour before dusk, Spike lined up the minions.
“Alright I will be leaving tonight with some of you and will be leaving the other half to stay here and run things while I am away.” He told them.
“When will you be back?” One of them asked.
“I don’t know, right now I am only interested in getting Dru better and I also promised her a trip to see Elizabeth. I will contact you, to give you forward information in case you hear from Joyce or Elizabeth.” Spike tells them.
“Who is going and who is staying?” another of the minions inquired.
“I will take four of my best minions and leave the others here. I do believe you know who you are so I don’t need to name names do I?” Spike started to walk away before turning slightly and adding over his shoulder, “Be ready in an hour.”
One hour later, they started out on their three day journey to Dublin.
Finally making it there in the dead of night, Spike sent two of his people to find an abandoned warehouse that they could hole up in. Within hours they were safe and dry in an old building situated at the heart of an industrial area that had lain silent and unused for years.
“Alright, tonight we get settled and tomorrow we start searching for the Doctor.” Spike instructed, all the while keeping an eye on Drusilla.
Days past by with no luck, then on the eve of the tenth day, one of the minions came running back into the Warehouse, shouting all the while for his master, “Sir, master Spike, Sir, we found him!”
“About Bloody time.” Spike growled, his patience was about worn through. “Bring him to me.”
The minion ran out, returning half an hour later with the Doctor in tow.
Spike had been pacing around the front of the warehouse waiting for them to appear. Only stopping when he had the Doctor in front of him. “Name's Spike and you are going to help me get my sire better.” Spike's voice brooked no argument.
The Doctor nodded, knowing that he better help the demanding Master Vampire, to his mind, it was the only way he was going to get out of the place alive.
Following Spike into the room where Drusilla lay prone and unmoving, he looked to the male vampire for permission to touch the very sick woman who was on the bed. When Spike nodded in acquiescence, the Doctor took in a deep breath before examining the dark beauty. Seeing the mark on Drusilla's neck, he turns towards Spike. “You’re from the order of Aurelius aren’t you?”
“Yes...” Spike replied, “Why?”
“I can give her something to help take the pain away, but she needs the Hellmouth, there is a powerful one in Sunnydale, California. It is the only way to restore her strength.”
“What do you need to help her?” Spike wearily asked the Doctor.
“To be alone with her for an hour or so. Go out and get yourself something to eat and bring her back something as well.”
“I’ll give you an hour, then I will be back.” Spike replied before leaving the bedroom.
After he was sure Spike was gone Bacna started chanting, his words and the mystical medicines he used surrounded Drusilla and within a matter of minutes they started to cure her of her pain. An hour later Spike returned, sated with a good feed and looking optimistic. Carrying out the orders that the good Doctor had given him, he brought Dru a live body for her to dine on.
Walking back into his room, he was greeted by a cheerful Drusilla. “Look Spike I can walk again, I can eat too.” She said, showing her childe and lover that what she said was true by bringing out her game face and attacking the neck of the girl, who Spike had brought for her to feast upon.
“That’s great Princess. I’ll see the good Doctor out and then we can eat together.” Spike happily told her, he hurriedly sent the Doctor on his way before dotingly looking on as his sire drained the human dry.
“Can we see Elizabeth while were in America, Spike?” Dru asked when she had licked the last drop from her lips.
“Yes Kitten. we can go and see her. I believe she is living in or around Sunnydale. I will check the last address we got from Joyce.”
“I miss seeing her, it has been almost 3 years now. You should redo her protection claim.” Dru told him, she was worried that her Elizabeth would be eaten, she was such a beautiful child, and that would appeal to every vampire out there, male or female.
“I know, when I see her again I will, but it doesn't seem like we have to worry too much about her... there is a Slayer I hear, in Sunnydale. She would likely keep the population of our kind down to a minimum.”
“Kill her Spike, kill the Slayer for me.”
“I’ll try Kitten, now get some sleep, tomorrow we set off to the other side of the world.” Spike informed her, he himself happy with the turn of events. With the trip to the U.S.A. He would have the chance to see his daughter for the first time in three years.
