custody. He takes on more than he bargained for.
'This creature had created him. It was like finding that God needs you, more than you need him. The whole foundation of Spike's reason for existence shifted under him. He felt as if the earth had trembled. He felt his needed to howl like a dog that feels that tremble and fears what it portends. He felt as if the earth was being breeched and wondered what was being born in this breech birth.
The sequel to this story, 'Footsteps in the Sand' can be found in the Spike/Wesley/Angel section.
