He hadn’t lived there since the night she’d died, having first moved into her house to take care of Dawn, then back to England, and then to her couch, but she suddenly found herself at Giles’ apartment, staring at the ‘For Lease’ sign on the door.
It had been her haven, a place she’d felt welcome and cared for.
Letting herself in, she found it empty. Not one reminder that he’d lived there remained: no lingering smell of tea, not one book left behind. Giles was gone.
Her anger flared. Fuck this. She’d find welcome and refuge at The Bronze.
