The cries and sobs coming from behind them echoed in the air. Spike and Dawn halted at the entrance of the alley and turned, watching the redhead who was crying hysterically on the ground. "Slayer," Spike whispered. "May be..."
"Let's go." Buffy ordered with a blank look on her face.
The chipped vampire knew they shouldn't leave Willow alone in that alley, but the slayer was clearly not in the mood to help. 'Better not piss her off.' He reasoned.
The trio finally walked away, leaving Willow continued crying in the dark alley, unaware of the dark figure in the shadow.
Willow did not know what to do. She knew she had gone too far this time. Looking through her blurred eyes, she saw Buffy and Spike walking away, taking Dawn with them.
She had lost... everything.
Suddenly, a noise from behind caught the witch's attention. She spun around, just in time to see a demon which looked exactly like the one she had killed before stepped out from the shadow.
"Looks like your friends left you, witch!" The demon laughed. "You shouldn't have interfered in the first place. For that, you'll pay!" Then, it launched at the redhead.
The redhead didn't move, or fight, or anything. She had nothing now. Everyone she cared left. First Oz, then Giles, then Tara... now even Dawn and Buffy had left her. Her parents had never been here for her, and Xander was too wrapped up with Anya and the wedding to care.
Not that Willow blamed them. No. Most of these were her faults. Who would want to stay with this plain old (and now junkie) Willow Rosenberg anyway? Might be death would do her good: at least she would belong to some place, whether it was heaven or hell.
The demon grabbed Willow's neck, and threw her against the opposite wall. Her head first hit the wall then the ground, blood started spilling out from the back of her head, mouth and nose. She watched as the laughing demon walked towards her, tearing her clothes into pieces, and sunk its claws into her stomach. The redhead opened her mouth to scream, but all she could do was choking in her own blood.
All the sudden, a fireball appeared from no where and crashed the demon from aside. It hit the ground, screaming as fire consumed its body until nothing except its burnt flesh remained.
And the last thing Willow saw was a tall figure standing in front of her.
Then, everything went black.
