Willow had never looked more beautiful then she did tonight.

Her velvet dress was a soft teal color, that offset the rosy glow of her cheeks.

Her husband had told her that even without the dress she looked beautiful. Then, he proceeded to show her.

Of course, they were going to be late.

"Are you ready, dear?" Her husband asked walking up behind her.

"As ready as I can be." She said, taking one last look in the mirror.

"I love you." Willow whispered these words up to Rupert's lips.

Rupert put his arms slowly around Willow. "I love you." He drew her as close to him as possible.

The kiss they shared was magical. It was full of love. It was passionate, yet gentle. Hotter, then, any movie or TV kiss.... The kiss was private and beautiful.

Willow regretted that they had to end the kiss.

"Rupert, we are already late."

"So...Buffy has shown up late, many times. Don't you think we should be allowed to show up late, once and awhile?"

"Rupert Giles, this is our anniversary party that we are going, too. Our friends went to a lot of trouble."

Giles signed.

"Yes, Dear."

"Anyway, today is a very important day."

"Yes, we got married four years ago. That is why our friends are throwing us a anniversary party."

"Nope, that is not why this day is special...Don't get me wrong...Our anniversary is important."

"There is something more important?"

"Of course, there is. I went to the doctor today. You are going to be a daddy...Now, lets get going!"

"W-W-WHAT! Willow!"

Giles' eyes reflected Willow's joy. His face was filled with happiness.

Giles reached out his hand and gently placed it onto her flat belly.

"We are having a baby?" Giles said with wonder.

Willow gave Rupert a beautiful smile.

"Didn't I just say that?"

Giles smiled right back. He could not help but ask...

"Are you sure you want to go to the party? I can think of many wonderful ways to celebrate...."

"Why, Mr. Giles, I am shocked!"

Giles gave Willow his famous Ripper smile.

"Are you really shocked, Mrs. Giles?"

Willow started to laugh...

"We are going...Now!"

"Yes, Dear...After you, Mrs. Giles."

Willow grabbed her beloved's hand.

"No, love..We go together. Side by side...Always."

"Of course, always. I wouldn't have it any other way."

They walked out the door hand and hand...The door shut softly behind them.
