Notes: based on velvetwhip's prompt "Faith, Xander, what might have been". Massive thanks to telaryn for handholding!
Wordcount: 100 (dudes! I got my drabble mojo back!)

"Is this alright?"

It had been fast and frantic (exactly what she'd needed) but there had been a moment (more than one) when it could've been more; could've been... better. It had all been right there in his eyes in that moment: worry, wonder, hope. And she'd done what she always did; taken what she wanted and pushed him away.

Sometimes in the dark she can pretend. Can feel the warmth of his embrace; the touch of his fingers stroking her arm; the peace in the moment.

"Is this alright?"

Sometimes in the dark she can pretend she said yes.
