The Potential

Chapter: What do you do after a demon attacks?

Author: Pumpkin Belly

A/n: ok guys I know it seems like I forgot about this story and writing all together but I didn't. It was always in the back of my mind I was just having major writers block. Then I thought why not write another chapter. I can't guarantee that this will be good but I'm going to try my best.  Also I think I'm going to make this a Spuffy story too but that'll be after awhile so please tell me what you think.

Last chapter: Angel and Cordelia found out that Connor and Dawn are together. The demon that had been after Dawn in Sunnydale has followed her to L.A. He attacked her but Connor saved her.

Connor held Dawn all night.  Her tears had subsided after awhile but she hadn't felt safe alone and Angel had said it was all right if Connor stayed in her room that night as long as they kept the door open. 

Dawn had enjoyed being with Connor all night.  It felt so right having him hold her, she wanted to stay that way forever, but she knew she couldn't.  That was the last thought Dawn had before she feel asleep.

When Dawn woke up the next morning she notice that Connor's arms were still around her.  She snuggled closer into him.  Dawn once again thought how right this felt.   After a while Connor woke up and pulled Dawn closer.  Dawn turned around so she was facing Connor.

"Hey Baby" Dawn said giving Connor a kiss. 

"Ummmm" Connor said after the kiss was over.  Dawn gave a little giggle and then leaned over to look at the clock.

"It's almost 10" Dawn said snuggling back into Connor.

"So, it's a Sunday" Connor said before leaning into kiss Dawn again.  They laid in bed kissing for another 10 minutes before getting up to get breakfast. 

Connor quickly put on a shirt since he had only been in a pair of sweat pants while they slept.  Dawn took one of Connors sweatshirts and put that on before they went down stairs.

Conner draped his arm around Dawn's shoulders as she leaned into him with her arm around his waist.  Coming down the stairs like they were Cordelia raised an eyebrow but didn't say anything, just went back to fixing breakfast. 

"Just have a seat and your breakfast will be ready in a few minutes." Cordeila instructed

"Cordy", Connor said sitting down next to Dawn, "since when did you cook?"

"I'll have you know I use to cook all the time, well ok maybe I didn't cook all the time but I made coffee and I wanted Dawn to have a good meal after what happened last night, you must be pretty shaken up." Cordelia said moving around the kitchen getting everything ready for breakfast.

"Awe, thank you Cordy that means a lot to me," Dawn said leaning in Connor's embrace.

Cordelia looked over at the two and smiled to herself has she got two plates out. 

"Ok you 2, your eggs are all ready," Cordelia put the plates filled with eggs in front of Dawn and Connor. 

"Thank you, this is great," Dawn, said taking a bite. 

Connor mumbled something that could have been an agreement to what Dawn had just said, but the all the food in his mouth made it hard for anyone to understand him.

"Chew, swallow, then talk," Dawn instructed then rolled her eyes when Conner mumbled something that sounded like 'yes dear' and went right back to eating his eggs. 

By the time Dawn was done eating Connor was finishing his second helping. 

"That was great Cordelia, you're a much better cook then Buffy will ever be," Dawn stood up and put her plate in the sink. Connor followed suit and then suggest that Dawn and he go for a walk in the garden. 

Connor took Dawn's hand and led her to a secreted part of the garden that Dawn hadn't seen when he had first showed her around the day before. 

After a few minutes of comfortable silence Connor turned to Dawn,

"Dawn do you think this is moving to fast I mean I know we just met the other day but I really, really like you and I've never felt this way about anyone before and I just don't know how you feel and," Connor was interrupted by Dawn.

"I know what you mean.  I really, really like you too and even though some other people might not understand I don't think this is moving to fast," Dawn leaned up and placed a light kiss on his lips.

Connor let out a sigh of relief, "Good, cause I didn't think we were going to fast but if you ever feel like we are just tell me and we can slow down. Dawn I want you to feel like you can tell me anything and I already feel like I can tell you anything and oh did I got far." Connor stopped seeing a look on Dawn's face that he didn't understand

"No, Connor, you didn't go to far at all. I'm glad you feel that way. I'm really, really glad," Dawn smiled and stood up. Connor gave her an odd look. 

"We're going shopping. I have to start school tomorrow and I feel like I need a little pre-school shopping.  Also I have all this unwanted tension and I need a way to release it." Dawn said and then seeing the look on Connor's face realized that what she said could be take the wrong way and quickly amended it, "cause you know shopping is a great way to release tension."

Dawn started to walk away when Connor grabbed her hand and pulled her back.  Dawn landed in Conner's lap.  Connor wrapped his arms around her and said, "Least just relax a little before you drag me around all these stores,"

"Hey, I need that after the demon that attacked me last night and besides you have never been shopping with me before," Dawn started to protest

"Yea, but I have been shopping with Cordelia before," Connor said leaning down to capture Dawn's lips in a kiss.

Dawn giggled a little at the thought of Connor shopping with Cordelia before returning the kiss. 

A/N: ok there's an update finally I don't know how good it is cause I really haven't written anything in awhile.  I think the updates will be coming sooner if anyone wants to read this story. I'm not begging for reviews I just want to know if anyone is interested in reading this. Cause if there not then I could do homework instead of writing this. And I'm sorry if this sounded kind of harsh because I didn't mean it to. I just broke up with my boyfriend so I am a little upset but no one cares about me. SO please just tell me if anyone is interested in me continuing this story
