Dawn: Blood Ties  
Title: Blood Ties
Theme: Loved Her Enough
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Spoilers for Btvs
Word Count: 170

Ever since she could remember she had been catching her sister late at night, hunched over the bathroom sink, scrubbing blood out of her clothes.
The first few times neither had said a word about it.
Dawn hadn't know the reason her sister was always fighting, always washing blood out of her shirts and jeans but never really being hurt herself.
For a while it had scared her, violent scenes playing out in her imagination, but after some time it all fell into a kind of routine. When Dawn could hear the bathroom faucets on at night she knew her sister was home safe.
It wasn't until she started actively covering for her sister that Buffy told her the real reason behind it.
When Dawn first willingly got grounded for ruining Buffy's new sweater with 'pizza sauce', that was when their silent midnight routine was given context for Dawn.
For Christmas that year Dawn gave Buffy stain remover. Joyce was utterly baffled with how much Buffy liked it.
