This story is the third episode in the series Time
is the Fire, and it's highly recommended that you read that pilot
story, as well as Episodes 1 and 2, before this.
Spike is living in LA, running his own agency. He has recruited a demon,
Jordan, who can shift into different forms at will, and a human, Sam.
Together with help from Wesley, he is making a new life for himself as
a souled vampire.
Spike and Angel have formed a unique, passionate relationship that draws
in all those who come in contact with them. This relationship was tested
to the limit when, victims of a spell, Angel viciously attacked his childe.
Can they escape the self-fulfilling prophesy?
All my fiction deals
with adult themes: torture; blood play; rape; graphic male/male sex. That
doesn't mean that every story has all these elements, but some of them
might. If you find any of these disturbing, please don't read this fiction.
I don't put specific warnings on individual chapters or episodes because
I feel that spoils the plot.
