Tale As Old As Time

Author: Pumpkin Belly

Summary: Buffy was ready to turn around and leave when she saw the look of love for her, still in Angel's eyes.  Different ending to Lover's Walk

A/N: Ok we all know that I'm a true Spuffy believer, but even I love a good Bangel story. And yes some little part of me wishes that Buffy and Angel could have worked out, only a little part but it's still there and that is why I am writing this story.  The song is from Beauty and the Beast

Timeline: at the end of Lover's Walk when Buffy is talking to Angel about them not seeing each other anymore.

Tale as old as time

True as it can be

"Can't we just be friends?" Angel called out to Buffy as she was leaving.

Barely even friends

Buffy turned around to face him, "We never really were friends. We were just"

"In love." Angel finished for her.

"Yeah," she nodded slowly.

Then somebody bends

Unexpectedly

Buffy was ready to turn around and leave when she saw the look of love for her, still in Angel's eyes.  She knew that the same look was most likely reflecting out of her eyes.  She walked out of Angel's mansion knowing that if she looked at him a moment more she was never going to leave.

Just a little change

Small to say the least

The next day Buffy saw Angel sitting on a bench in the cemetery she was currently patrolling in.  Without a second thought she ran up to him pulling him into a loving kiss.

Both a little scared

Neither one prepared

Beauty and the Beast

Buffy wasn't sure what made her kiss Angel like that.  Maybe it was the way she remembered he had looked at her the night before or maybe it was because of the way she had looked at him in return. 

Ever just the same

Ever a surprised

Though Angel had been hoping that Buffy would come back to him, it surprised him when she kissed him.  Of course he kissed her back with the same passion, but the nagging voice in his head kept asking, why?

When the kiss broke, with Buffy gasping for air Angel took his chance and asked, "Why?"

Buffy, who had been asking herself the same question, looked at him with love shining through said, "Is I love you reason enough?"

Ever as before

Ever just as sure

As the sun will rise

"I guess it has to be," Angel responded before kissing her again.

Song as old as rhyme

Bittersweet and strange

"How are the others going to act?" Angel asked Buffy as they both started walking hand in hand through the graveyard.

"I feel like we're always thinking about others before ourselves. How 'bout this one time we not worry is the others will think if its strange or wrong and think about us," Buffy declared. Angel only nodded his head with a smile on his face.

Finding you can change

Learning you were wrong

"So I guess you've changed your opinion from early?" Angel asked. His only response was a kiss from Buffy.

Certain as the sun
Rising in the East

Beauty and the Beast

As the beast and beauty kissed under the stars, a wisp of laughter could be heard in the wind as the fates rejoiced that the 2 warriors had found each other.
