Last chapter was about BA and we will have a little more of it here, but what is W&H up to? A certain brunette slayer is coming in. And it is time for father-son bonding.
"Our... our… well, the first time we… you know. It was... "
Angel opened huge eyes and bolted from the bed so fast that Buffy almost fell from it.
"Angel, what… did I say something wrong? Was it not good for you?"
"What did you remember?"
"And… and… you are still here looking at me like…"
Buffy got out of bed with her hands in her waist.
"Like what? That was incredible! I could feel how much I loved you. How much I wanted it to happen? There was no regret after it, just… just happiness."
Angel slowly closed his eyes when he heard the word happiness. His knees gave up. When he hit the floor he finally realized she didn't remember it all. Buffy mistook Angel's behavior.
"I see... it... it is not a good memory for you. I am sorry if I were a virgin and…"
"It was the best night of my life!"
Angel slowly raised his head and Buffy saw his eyes full of unshed tears. She gazed at him confused when she saw so much pain all over his face. His anguished eyes gave up so much pain that she just ran and gathered him on her arms. After a while, she felt his tears ran down her shoulder.
Buffy caressed Angel's hair and proceeded to kiss his face. She held it between her hands and kissed his lips slowly.
"Angel, what is it?"
"I… I don't want you to remember."
"It is my life. I know I said some hours ago that I didn't want to remember the pain, but… but there was no pain when we made love. There was utter happiness…"
Angel got up and walked away from Buffy.
"Don't say this word."
"Why? It is how I felt that so longtime ago. It was what I felt… I felt just minutes ago and… it is how… how I feel right now."
"You don't understand."
"Explain it to me."
"I already told you before. That moment of true happiness triggered the curse. I lost my soul. I killed again and almost sent the world to hell."
"NO! I killed Buffy. I killed a woman named Jenny Calendar, a computer teacher who happened to be the love of Giles life."
Buffy stared at Angel when another image surfaced. She got the red sheets around herself when she woke in the same bedroom alone. Then, she threw a woman with black hair in a table while Giles dismissed a class.
"Oh, God! Angel. I'm so sorry for you."
"FOR ME? You should be sorry for your Watcher."
"But… but it was not your fault. He wasn't you, right? You said it yourself back in my house that when a demon takes someone's body, the soul is gone."
Angel looked at Buffy like she had grown a head. With or without full memories, Buffy still thought of him as an innocent. He gave a sarcastic laugh.
"I was a scoundrel the first time I was a human. Just whored around, didn't work, and shamed my father."
"What? And you think you deserved to be turned into a vampire because of this. Nobody deserves to be turned into a demon, Angel. You made amends didn't you? You helped me, didn't you? You overcome a lot to be here today."
Angel sat in a dark corner of the room. Buffy thought he wasn't hearing her. So, she got and went to the bathroom. Twenty minutes later she got out decided to go see her son and the others.
She touched the door handle and spoke again without turning back.
"I can see you still feel responsible for what your demon did. I don't have the whole picture, but if some higher powers thought so good of you to even turn you back human, I think you should stop with the hiding and the mea culpa act. For some reason, I think everyone is tired of it. These powers forgave you. I think you should do the same to yourself."
"… so, Vi was just cornered in the end of the alley. The vampires were just salivating to finish her off. When I and Ronda arrived, we saw something… wow… Vi just gave this somersault and when she landed on the floor behind the vampire they were already dust…"
Buffy stopped at the end of the stair when she saw a brunette doing kicks and punches in the air. Everyone got silent when they saw her and Faith turned around. Buffy gasped when she saw the woman face. She remembered they were fighting. It was vicious. Then, she stabbed the other girl.
Buffy woke up in the couch in the office. She had passed out after finding out she had tried to kill another human being. She groaned and opened her eyes slowly. Faith sat in the other side of the main desk in the room.
"So, B, you are wake."
"Why are you talking to me when I tried to kill you?"
Faith's red lips got up in a ghost of a smile. They said Buffy didn't have her memories so she didn't know what to say to her. Angel was the one to carry Buffy to the office, but Faith had asked some time alone with the other slayer. He wasn't happy, but granted her the time.
"That is a long history... and actually it was me who tried to kill you. Well… not you… your hunk of a honey vampire back there."
"Huh… the dark side had its charm. I was working for this guy who wanted to be a big demon. One of my jobs was to let you out of the loop for the big fight. What better then kill a girl's heart. I poisoned your honey."
"It was… it was you!"
Buffy gave in to the urge that overtook her, although she didn't really know where it was coming from, and lunged for Faith so fast the other slayer almost didn't see it coming. Buffy tried to punch Faith, but the brunette sided stepped her.
"I knew you were there somewhere… sister!"
Faith got up and ran towards Buffy making both of them go crashing through the door towards the main room of the Hyperion to everyone surprise.
Angel had jumped between both slayers before everyone had fully realized what was happening. He held Buffy while she tried to get to the brunette again.
"Faith, can you please tell me What. Did. You. Do."
"Hey, boss. This is just…"
Faith never ended what she was going to say because several commandos attacked the hotel.
AN.: I'm nowhere near the amazing Nurjen08, when it comes to write fight scenes. So, no Slayer's catfight for you.
