It had been an interesting series of events since Faith's arrival to Rosewood.She made some new alliances and was able to reconnect with Buffy, to strengthen their fragmented relationship, to hopefully become better allies and friends.They were both slayers and Faith felt that it is a lot better for them to coexist and get along, rather than be constantly at each other's throats.She was honestly thankful for Buffy's forgiveness and welcoming nature towards her redemption.Faith recalled times when they weren't so kind towards one another.Not that Faith exactly deserved kindness back then.After accidentally killing a human on a patrol, Faith fell down a very slippery slope.She was so consumed with guilt and self hate, that she rejected everyone's attempts at helping her.She descended into the shadows and committed many heinous acts that she could never undo, she just had to move forward.Thanks to the help of Angel, who brought her back from the darkness, she had since been trying to make amends for all the horrible things she had done.
After receiving a tip from one of her contacts, regarding the latest spree of "animal attacks
" in Rosewood.Mostly occurring in the wooded areas of the community, the Rogue Slayer decided to scope out the wilderness, to see if she could find anything supernatural to slay.
Faith was all geared up in her usual dark jeans, black tank top, leather jacket and combat boots.She carried a wooden stake, along with a couple of other weapons in the inner pockets on each side of her coat.She made her way carefully down a steep path, keeping her slayer senses sharp for anything that wasn't just a simple forest critter.Moments later, the brunette heard screaming off in the distance.Without even processing a thought, Faith darted towards the location of the sound.
The slayer stumbled upon a couple of teens being attacked by a vampire, one was already dead and the other was just in the middle of being the vamps dessert.Faith ran over to pull the bloodsucker off the girl.When she got a closer look at the fanged one, her eyes went wide.Spike
, the infamous vampire with a history of chaos and violence, who ended falling in love with Buffy, to an obsessive degree.Though last she heard, he had a soul ?.
"Well, well.If it isn't William the Bloody ? Last I checked you were all soulful ? Guess you fell off the wagon huh ?"
