pairing: buffy/tara summary: post-Dead Things, tara attempts to comfort buffy with a tarot reading. a/n: for @tattooeyes again, i love dali read on AO3
“I could read for you,” Tara says, once Buffy has calmed down enough to sit beside her on the couch. “T-Tarot cards, I mean. Um, I’m not very good, but I find it calms me when I’m… when I’m going through something.”
Buffy nods and pushes stray hairs from her eyes. They’d stuck there while her tears had dried up. She can’t speak yet, but the nod is enough.
Tara fetches her cards from her bag and passes them to Buffy.
“Will you shuffle them?”
Another nod. Buffy takes the cards and, after wiping smudged mascara from her fingers onto her pants, begins to shuffle them.
