Ficlet: Scream and Slither

Our prompt for ficlets this week was photographs, and I chose the picture mydeira tossed into the pot. I wrote this morning after getting my LLGA stuff done, since my week is probably going to be busy.

TITLE: Scream and Slither
AUTHOR: Eurydice
RATING: PG13, for mood I think. A darkish fic.
DISCLAIMER: Not mine, which is a shame because usually we're nicer to them than Joss was.
LENGTH: 900 words
SETTING: Set in early summer after the end of S6, Spike on his way back to Sunnydale
AUTHOR'S NOTE: I've never written Spike in this time period before. I've read so many fics that are either truly awful or give him such an amazing voice that I've been terrified to try it. But the sepia tones of mydeira's picture put the bugaboo in my brain, so I wrote it, for better or worse.

And for reference, here is the picture that inspired it:
