Part 6

"So you tried to lose your soul," I say glaring at him. "Not thinking of all the people who could get killed. All your *friends*, all of *my* friends, my family and oh yeah *ME*!" I say shouting.

I see it again. My favorite feeling. My only feeling. Expect that one night that was so very long ago. PAIN.

"Buffy, I didn't.I wasn't thinking. I didn't mean to hurt-" But I cut him off.

Pissed, beyond pissed. My God. What if I had to take care of Glory and Dawn but not only that also Angelus. Didn't he think of anyone but himself?

"Didn't think!" I yell. "I have to agree with you there. But did you forget who Angelus's favorite toy to play with is. ME"

I stare at him. My eyes blaring in fire.

"I'm sorry. I'm really, truly sorry," he says, looking at me straight in the eye.

He comes towards me and takes hold of my shoulder. I'm so mad, so tired, so unaware that I didn't even push his away.

"Baby, I love you,"

My heart flutters slightly and I have to admit I guess I'm sort of jealous. The fact Darla could have sex with him and not me. Hey what about his soul.

Like he read my mind he answers my thought, "I didn't even lose my soul. The only thing she gave was despair. And my epiphany. I didn't. I don't. I love you. I want my life to be with you," he states.

And now I feel like the leader of the world and I could do whatever I wanted to do because he loved me. Hey, that's just like the song, we sort of match to that. Really match to that. If we ever get married. And then I hear the irony in his words. Remembering the day so long ago when he told me the exact opposite. But everything was different back then. Angel couldn't go into sunlight, he couldn't eat, and they couldn't make love. Now they could. She felt like she was going back in time.


Angel: You deserve more. You deserve something outside demons and darkness. You should be with someone who can take you into the light, someone who can make love to you.

Buffy: I don't care about that.

Angel: You will. And children.

Buffy: Children. Can you say jumping the gun? I kill my goldfish.

Angel: Today. But you have no idea how fast it goes, Buffy. Before you will know it, you'll want it all. A normal life.

Buffy: I'll never have a normal life.

Angel: You're right. You'll always be the slayer but that's all the more reason why should have a real relationship. In stead of this. Freak show. (Pause) I didn't mean that

Buffy: I'm gonna go.

Angel: I'm sorry, Buffy. You know how much I love you and it kills me to say this.

Buffy: Then don't. Who are you to tell me what's right for me. You think I haven't thought about this.

Angel: Have you? Rationally?

Buffy: No. No, of course not. I'm just some scrawny little school girl. Right?

Angel: I'm trying to do what's right here. I'm trying to think with my head instead of my heart.

Buffy: Heart. You have a heart. It isn't even beating.

Angel: Don't.

Buffy: Don't what? Don't love you? I'm sorry. I didn't know I had a choice in that. I'm never going to change. I can't change. I want my life to be with you!

Angel: I don't.

End Flashback

I look at him, my memory spinning. "Yeah, really since when?"

He looks hurt, but personally I don't care. He hurt me. He broke up with me in a *sewer*, and yeah I sort of made him tell me there but still.

"Buffy, I made a lot of mistakes in my life. But this time I'm not. You're my life, my heart, my whole world. I love you. Please," he says desperately almost.

Taking hold of me I look at him and tears struck my eyes and I hug him tightly. I have never been anyone's whole world before!!!!!! And I am ANGEL'S!!!!!!!!!!
He pulls me tightly towards him and kisses my crown and I feel his tears falling down on my hair, He pulls back so he can look at me.

"Run away with me," he says.

"What about Dawn, Connor," I say.

He looks at me and pulls me towards the car and I see through the window two almost fully grown children sleeping on the seat. I smile slightly.

"And how long have you had this child?" I ask surprised at seeing a grown child in the car seat.

"Long story and if you come with me I could explain," he joked slightly.

"Let's say I do say yes. Would I get anything I want? Like tons and tons of clothes?" I say smiling slightly.

He looks at me and nods, "Yeah, anything you want."

I smile and come very close to him, "Do I get a lot of sex?" I whisper in his ear.

I feel his middle harden at my words and smirk faintly.

"Uh huh," he nods, "Count on it."

"You are aware you have a lot to make up for, so this may influence my decision to stay with you, when *we* run away,"

The second I ended my sentence Angel picked me up and swung me around the cliff.

"Angel, I'm going to fall," I giggle.

Actually giggling, smiling, and laughing for the first time in who knows when. I hold on tighter to him and he brings his lips towards mine.
It's soft and beautiful and Angel treats me like I'm a present. His present. At least it's better than mine. Death. But that's long and gone and now my gift is an Angel. My beautiful Angel.
When we come up for air he smiles and I feel a squeeze in my thighs and I know I feel a very big bulge in *his* pants and its nice to know I turn him on.

"Ohm," I hear someone cough.

I turn and I see Dawn and someone else standing next to her having an amused smile on his face.

"So you're Connor?" I say and he nods. "You look so much like your dad. Expect for the eyes." I touch his face and he doesn't flinch at all.

"So you're like going to be my mom," he says.
I smile and look at Angel. He nods and I smile again. I look at Dawn and she is checking Connor out. I grin and look at my new family. My family. Family. I like the sound of that. With Angel. And lots of sex. Oh. This is going to be fun.

Angel comes up behind me and wraps his arms around me, "I love you."

I look at him and kiss his chin. I turn around in his arms and say, "Oh, but I love you too, my Angel"


AN: So tell me, like it, hate it. I want to know!!!
