Chapter 2: Angel's reaction

Angel stumbled back into the Hyperion, ignoring the questions and curious glances he got from everyone as he ran up the stairs and into his bedroom, locking the door.

Angel squeezed his brown eyes shut as he collapsed to the floor, knees bending as he held them to his chest. A single tear ran down his cheek and fell onto his arm, while he buried his face into his arms.

In one single moment your whole life can turn 'round
I stand there for a minute staring straight into the ground
Lookin' to the left slightly, then lookin' back down
World feels like it's caved in – proper sorry frown
Please let me show you where we could only just be, for us
I can change and I can grow or we could adjust
The wicked thing about us is we always have trust
We can even have an open relationship, if you must
I look at her she stares almost straight back at me
But her eyes glaze over like she's lookin' straight through me
Then her eyes must have closed for what seems an eternity
When they open up she's lookin' down at her feet

He stood, grabbing a crossbow that was on his table in his bedroom and walked out the room, intended to killing something. Once again he ignored the questions and now concerned looks as he walked out the hotel, letting his vampire side take over at the thought of his mate and his son having a child, that one day he himself could have had with Buffy.

Dry your eyes mate
I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up
There's plenty more fish in the sea
Dry your eyes mate
I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts
But you've got to walk away now
It's over

Angel, Angelus or Liam were never ones to admit they had lost someone. When Angelus had killed his sister, he felt nothing as Angel he felt the guilt that had settled there throughout the years. But as Liam, he felt the love for his sister and he would only show it to her, never the outside world.


So then I move my hand up from down by my side
It's shaking', my life is crashing' before my eyes
Turn the palm of my hand up to face the skies
Touch the bottom of her chin and let out a sigh
'Cause I can't imagine my life without you and me
There's things I can't imagine doing, things I can't imagine seeing
It weren't supposed to be easy, surely
Please, please, I beg you please
She brings her hands up towards where my hands rested
She wraps her fingers round mine with the softness she's blessed with
She peels away my fingers, looks at me and then gestures
By pushing' my hand away to my chest, from hers

Any vampire or demon that crossed his path as he walked through the streets of Los Angeles, were instantly beaten to the street and killed without any feeling apart from rage. Angel felt Buffy near by, deciding that killing every demon wouldn't hide the anger and sickness he felt, Angel began to follow what he called his Buffy signal.

Dry your eyes mate
I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up
There's plenty more fish in the sea
Dry your eyes mate
I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts
But you've got to walk away now
It's over

And I'm just standing' there, I can't say a word
'Cause everything's just gone
I've got nothing
Absolutely nothing

Connor took Buffy's hand and squeezed it slightly as they walked into the airport, holding their bags that didn't contain much since Buffy lost half of it in Sunnydale. Lucky for her, Connor had stopped by and gathered what he could without being noticed by the Scooby Gang as they walked around the house.


Tryin' to pull her close out of bare desperation
Put my arms around her tryin' to change what she's saying
Pull my head level with hers so she might engage in
Look into her eyes to make her listen again
I'm not gonna fucking, just fucking leave it all now
'Cause you said it'd be forever and that was your vow
And you're gonna let our things simply crash and fall down
You're well out of order now, this is well out of town
She pulls away, my arms are tightly clamped round her waist
Gently pushes me back and she looks at me straight
Turns around so she's now got her back to my face
Takes one step forward, looks back, and then walks away

Angel quickly ran into the airport, trying to find the couple as he turned his head every which way he could. Finally he stopped them and started to walk, but was stopped as many people began to rush for the plane to Italy, Rome. He growled, shoving past people as he caught up with the couple, but was once again stopped as Buffy and Connor boarded the plane.

Dry your eyes mate
I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up
There's plenty more fish in the sea
Dry your eyes mate
I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts
But you've got to walk away now
It's over


Once the couple gave their bags, passports and whatever else, they quickly boarded to the plane that would take them to Rome. Buffy quietly sat in the window seat, stretching her short legs out as Connor sat beside her, slightly nervous for the first time in his as they got ready for take off.


I know in the past I've found it hard to say
Telling' you things, but not telling' straight
But the more I pull on your hand and say
The more you pull away

Dry your eyes mate
I know it's hard to take but her mind has been made up
There's plenty more fish in the sea
Dry your eyes mate
I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts
But you've got to walk away now.

Angel watched the plane fly off into the sky and sighed, turning away as he walked out the airport and off to the graveyard he had ran from in the first place. He knelt in front of his grandchild's and smiled slightly as he fingered the lettering. "Goodbye," he whispered to the grave, his soul mate and his son as they left his life, just as quickly as they entered it.
