"You worry too much," Willow told her lover softly, fingers stroking along Tara's cheekbones.
"No I don't… you just take so many risks." Tara did smile, catching those fingers to kiss on them.
"Buffy needs me."
Tara nodded, letting go of Willow's fingers. "And I need to worry over you. Because I love you." She slid up against the pillows so she could kiss Willow lightly. "I support you, all of your friends. Because it's right, what we do. But I will worry. You can't take that from me."
Willow smiled and kissed her back. "I think I understand now."
