Buffy was sleeping. She was on her side facing away from Faith. The sheets were down at the bottom of the bed. The lamp on Faith's side of the bed was still on.
Buffy was naked. So was Faith.
Faith looked at her lover. She looked at the marks she had left on her body. The signs of their passion. The scratches on her back and hip. The hickies, numerous on her neck and one on her butt. The flush of red on her buttock where the spanks had landed.
Faith knew that her body was marked too.
Come morning the marks would be gone.
When darkness fell again new marks would be made. The cycle would go on until one night one of them didn't make it through the fight.
