NOTE: I am not lucky enough to own any of these characters because they belong to Joss and the WB. But I own Skylar (in a way) and any other character you don't recognize.
A/N: Well, guys this is the very last chapter of the second Skylar story. I had loads of fun with it but all good things must come to an end. I hope you like this chapter.CHAPTER 11
Angel and Buffy were having dinner in Buffy's favorite restaurant. Buffy was wearing a red silk blouse, a black skirt, black shoes with red heels, and her hair was down. Angel was wearing a crimson red sweater (not a black sweater, for once), black slacks, and a black jacket.
"So what about that surprise you had for me?" asked Buffy, taking Angel's hand in hers.
"Hang on," said Angel, noticing several couples starting to get up as the music got slower. "Let's dance."
"You want to dance? Is the surprise a personality change or something?"
"Just come on," Angel smiled. He led Buffy out to the dance floor.
Dawn and Richard went out to the hallway of the high school. The dance was being held in the gym. Dawn was laughing.
"Richard, this has been a great night. Better than I expected," said Dawn.
"Great. Because I have something to ask you," said Richard.
"Yeah. Listen, I know we haven't known each other very well but ever since I first laid eyes on you… I couldn't stop thinking about you. I was so nervous about asking you to this dance. You're totally hot."
"Hot? Well, that's true. But I was nervous about you asking me. I made a huge fuss."
"But I was wondering something."
"Would you like to be my girlfriend?"
Dawn gave him a funny looked. Then she smiled. She moved up and planted a kiss on his lips. Dawn pulled back after a few seconds.
"Does that answer your question?"
"Totally," Richard replied. He pulled her closer by her waist and they began to kiss again.
"Here you go, Tammy," said Connor, handing her a glass of punch.
"Thanks, Connor. I'm having a great time," Tammy smiled.
"So am I." They smiled at each other. "Would you like to do this again… any other time?"
"What took you so long to ask? I've always had a crush on you."
"What? You have?" Tammy nodded. "I've always had one on you, too."
"I just hope you get better at asking me out. Now are we going to keep babbling or are you going to kiss me?"
"We could do both," said Connor joking.
"Well… I prefer kissing." Tammy grabbed the back of his neck and pulled him in. They kissed passionately.
Lorne was putting Skylar to bed. They'd been having fun the entire night.
"OK. Good night, princess. And sorry that I didn't believe you about that Kevin kid," said Lorne.
"It's OK," said Skylar. "Uncle Lorne, why do you think Kevin was being so bad?"
"Well, he is a kid. Just like you he gets worried, lonely, and just plain crazy." Skylar giggled. "Night, valentine."
"Night, Uncle Lorne. Love you." Skylar closed her eyes. Lorne smiled at the little girl.
"You know, Angel, for a broody freak you're pretty light on your feet," said Buffy.
"Right back at you," said Angel.
The slow dance ended. Angel led Buffy out to a terrace. Buffy leaned out against the balcony. Angel leaned in next to her.
"You know, Angel. This is has been a really great night. I've forgotten how great you are."
"Same here. But don't forget. You'll always be the girlfriend that sent me to hell."
"And you'll always be the pathetic boyfriend who deserved it."
"Shut up," Angel smiled. "You'll ruin it."
"Ruin what?" Buffy asked.
"Buffy, I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that we're together again. I know a lot of things have changed but some things are just the same."
"Are you trying to get to some type of point?"
"You called that one." Angel took a small velvet box out of his pocket and got down on one knee. Buffy's eyes grew wide. "Buffy Summers, will you marry me?"
"Shut up!" Buffy exclaimed. "Of course I'll marry, stupid!"
Angel smiled brightly. Buffy wrapped her arms around him. Angel hugged back lovingly. Buffy was all smiles. She and Angel finally faced each other. They slowly leaned in and began to kiss. This had been the best Valentine's Day ever.
A/N: Don't you just love happy endings? I'm suddenly a romance freak. Oh, well. I hope you enjoyed this story. Look for the next Skylar story coming in March. I hope you had fun with this because I did. Reviews for the final chapter would be greatly appreciated. And thanks for the ones I've gotten. You guys are great.
Second A/N: Hey! I almost forgot. I have to announce the contest winners! Skylar's new name is Skylar Elisabeth Helen Angel. Who are Elisabeth and Helen? They're the contest winners! Elisabeth is Pyro Bear (one awesome author), and Helen is Buffy-Spike-Mad (another great). They're the winners in the "what's Angel's surprise for Buffy" contest. Congratulations, guys, and keep writing!
