"Spike?" Dawn stuck her head in a half-open door of the crypt. She took a look around, but the vampire was nowhere to be seen. The girl stepped inside making sure to close the door quietly.
"Spike?" she called again. There was no answer. Dawn cautiously walked through the crypt, inspecting the interior. An old armchair in front of a very outdated TV set, a stone bier, candles on windowsills, two massive sarcophagus at the back wall, a fridge in the corner.
Behind a column supporting the ceiling she spotted an entrance leading to the lower level of the crypt.
Dawn took a deep breath and started climbing down the ladder.
