After their outer world experience, everything fell back into place. The Angel Investigation team's life was back to normal. Well, if you could call their lives normal.
They got call and they worked cases. They got paid when a client could afford to pay.
The days turned into weeks and quicker than they realized, they, from when Cordy reappeared to Fred, had been together for three months.
Gunn moved into the Hyperion. He found that he felt more at home with Angel Investigations than he did with his gang.
Connor was still being a normal college student during the day and being a warrior at night. His life was at a complete balance. He even had a girlfriend.
Fred and Wesley began to formally date as soon as they s the Texan settled back into the hotel. It was like they never parted and by the end of their second week together, Fred moved into Wesley's room.
As for angel and Cordelia, they had come to a truce when they were transported back to the hotel. Cordy who was always civil to Angel before began to treat him like she used to. And Angel began to slowly realize she was really his Cordelia and started to treat her as such.
One day, on the third month anniversary of when she first appeared she and Angel finally sat in Angel's room at night.
"I think it's time we finally talk," the Vampire said.
Cordy stared at him shocked. She had thought it would take her locking them in a room herself and forcing him to talk about their situation.
"Okay, shoot," she said.
"I…" Angel said running his hand through his hair unsure of what exactly to say. "I know you really Cordelia Chase, my Cordelia Chase."
"It's about time," the seer said.
Angel glared at her.
"I just want to apologize for my behavior the last few months."
Cordelia smiled sweetly up at him. She approached him. Placing his cheeks into he r hands, she tilted his face towards hers.
"You really didn't need to apologize," she said. "I understand why you treated me the way you did. Hey, I don't blame you. If it had been the other way around, I would have staked you the moment I saw you."
"I love you," he said before he realized it.
Cordy's smile widened and she leaned up to kiss the vampire sweetly.
"I know," she said. "I've know for a while now."
"And?" Angel asked nervously.
"I love you too," the Seer said.
"Good," Angel said smiling at her and kissed her with deep longing.
"You know this mean you going to have to star wining and dining me," Cordy joked.
Angel joked as he first thought about the cost then thought about it.
"I think it will be worth it," he said and they laughed.
