She was torn. She knew she should remain loyal to Buffy. After all, she was her sister, sort of, and the closest thing she'd ever have to real family. She was also the first Slayer, the one who tried hardest to stick good, and the one whose death had triggered the new Slayer who'd just hit town.
But there was something about the new Slayer. Something that made Dawn's big, brown eyes follow her every step as she walked with a seductive sway that also reminded Dawn of the big cats she'd seen on nature TV stalking their prey. There was something about her that made Dawn ache deep inside when their eyes met. She knew it was old hat, as Giles would probably say, but she felt like the moth who couldn't escape the candle's flickering light.
She wanted that light. She wanted that heat to curl up inside of her and explode her into a thousand million bits. Dawn swallowed hard as the Slayer moved closer to her. Her heartbeat quickened when she smiled. "You're a pretty little thing, aren't you?" Dawn trembled as Faith's fingers ran delicately over her flesh. The dark Slayer smirked. "Nothing at all like your big, wanna-be bad sis, I bet." Her lips lowered over Dawn's, making Dawnie's dreams come true.
They shared the same thought as they kissed: Buffy was going to be pissed! It made Dawnie afraid while pleasing Faith, but then her mind turned to mush underneath Faith's well-trained lips.
