"You must keep your guard up or you wont last thirty seconds with an upper being." said Illyria bluntly as Serena tried to charge at her with her sword but she had forgotten about defense in her state of offences toward her.
"Why must you antagonist me"? asked Serena as she stopped a hit that would have connected to her left arm.
"I speak the truth nothing more" said Illyria.
"Yeah well I didn't train as long as you did." said Serena.
"That is no excuse, a move is not worth the practice, pick it up and you are set." she said swinging her sword That almost hit Serena in the head.
"Can we stop, I'm tired" said Serena as she panted down more breathes.
"NO, you must never stop. If you convince yourself that the only way to end a fight is by defeat, that will be the only method you will use in the future. It is a habit I plan to remove from your being" she said.
"Do you ever speak or talk like someone from this century" ? spat Serena in frustration.
"Your frustration is growing, your enemies will use it against you if you let it take over. It will make you weak" she said.
"I'm already weak, so it doesn't make much differences." snarled Serena.
"Stop" said Illyria suddenly.
"If you are as weak as you say, than you are not worth my time" and she stopped and state on the bench.
"look I know you don't want to be my like babysitter or whatever but please can we just get along in a professional sense"? asked Serena.
"Of course as long as you stop referring to your being as weak. You have power Serenity Selene Shiva. You just have to find it with in your centre" spoke Illyria calmly.
"What are you talking about" asked Serena.
"Your power is still dormant. It will a waken when you accept what is right" said Illyria.
"How do you no any of this"? asked Serena with surprise.
"When this shell could no long take my power my travel abilities was uncontrollable by me. I see the basic out prints of what is to come." said Illyria.
"When did I have this out break of power" questioned Serena with curiosity and anxiousness.
"When you reach the end of the consummations" said Illyria.
"Enough, I have already said to much let us continue forward and spar. I grow tired of your questions Serenity." said Illyria.
"My name is Serena."
"That is a simplified name, I have no use for that" said Illyria.
Whatever Ria" said Serena with no concern.
"Lets get back to work" said Illyria
"Illyria is training her" said Wes.
"When you say training, do you mean she is beating the girl to pieces or actual training" questioned Spike
"No, actual training" answer Wes
"Good" said Angel.
"Illyria told Serena that in one of her time flashes she saw Serena's powers awaking in a consummation" added Wesley.
"What kind of Consummation"? questioned Angel.
"We don't know, when she finishes her spar with Serena we will have to ask" said Wes
"I don't trust her, she is hiding something" said Connor, who didn't have a real trusting bone in his body.
"You spent your childhood with a person who Angel has a past with in a hell dimension, so that would explain why you don't trust anyone." said Spike bluntly.
"No that has nothing to do with it, my judgment is fine. She has spent time with the heart of vampire evil so who knows how much she has taken that evil in. As for this power, she might use it for evil acts. So like I said, I don't trust her." said Connor.
"Good, because I don't trust you either" said Serena and she entered with Illyria close behind her. They both took the empty seats next to each other with Illyria leaning close to Serena in case at any second someone would attack her. It wasn't likely but Illyria was always prepared for the unexpected, most of the time anyway. Serena looked at everyone in the room, slowly taking them all in, seeing if the had anything to hide. Serena knew at the end of her inspection they did but Serena saw it better to leave it as that. Angel soon broke the awkward silences.
"Illyria you know something." said Angel calmingly.
"It is not my place to say anything" said Illyria with anger in her eyes.
" We need to know what you saw in your moments of flashes" said Angel.
Illyria looked to Serena as if to ask permission. Serena just nodded. Serena herself didn't know everything so this might be the only chance for her to find out about this power topic. A part of Serena wanted to just let the future ride out with out warning because it was healthy but another side of her was just straining and urging her know to know what will happen and if her and Darien continue to stay apart of what was the deal with this strange consummation. She wanted to know what kind of consummation. That was what was pulling at her strings the most ever since Illyria mentioned it to her.
"Serenity's power is deep with in her but will be released when the consummation proceeds" said Illyria.
"Is the release good"? questioned Wesley with suspension as he looked at Serena.
"Yes, it will become a major part in the point of time when it appears" said Illyria.
"What is this power" asked Spike.
"It is a balance of good and evil" answer Illyria.
"Wait I have a question. How did I even get this sleeping power thing ? My ancestors my have had more strength than the average being but apart from that nothing in history says that anyone of uses had a dormant power. Questioned Serena.
"It because you had because the slayer was chosen instead of you but not all power went to her" answer Illyria.
"Wait did you say Slayer as in Buffy"? asked Angel.
"Yes" said Illyria.
"Explain." asked Connor out of the blue.
"A slayer is chosen every generation, even in my time there was a slayer. Many are considered. Many don't make the cut. When the final two are chosen it will be debated in time which will become the slayer They pre-chose slayers in about three generations a head." said Illyria.
"Wait are you saying I was one of the final two for this generation"? asked Serena.
Everyone was surprised and shocked by this news, Serena included. " Why was Buffy chosen instead of Serena" asked Connor.
"She was to be born younger and they needed a slayer fast and with her protection source from her ancestors of the Shiva's it made it almost impossible to embed the demon inside her. It could be done but in the end Buffy was the easier choice. So because of that she was given power that would a waken at the right time." said Illyria.
"When is the right time"? asked Spike.
"When the slayer falls" she replied.
"When will that be"? asked Angel.
"When the consummation takes place. When it does take place, there will be no reason for a slayer so she will be able to live a normal life." said Illyria.
"When will that be." asked Angel.
"That I'm not sure of."
"Why but what is the consummation" asked Serena .
"Its not time to know yet so I can not say" said Illyria.
Serena had left the room to train. Knowing she wasn't going to get anything out Illyria they began to talk seriously. "What is this consummation"? asked Angel with concern.
"It is the completion of her bond" said Illyria.
"What do you mean"? asked Spike and Wesley at the same time.
"Her bond with Endymion, I believe her goes by" said Illyria.
"What was the method of completion"? asked Wesley, he was fearing the answer and hoping for good news.
"I think you all know the answer to that" said Illyria.
"What it out of love your forced." asked Wesley.
"I believe it was out of love. She had this expression on her face that proved that much." said Illyria.
"I don't understand how this consummation will awaken her power" said Spike.
" I still don't know why, I might have to wait for my next flash." said Illyria.
"Can you control them at all now"? asked Angel.
"No I can't they happen when they want" said Illyria.
"Is there a chance that the powers that be is messing with these flashes, when you travel in time. They did it to Cordelia" said Spike.
"No that was wolfram and Hart before we took over, Lilah mostly" said Angel and he watched as Wesley flinched slightly. Lilah had been his lover before Fred, and there as still possible feelings involved. She died but still walked the halls of Wolfram and Hart when she decided hell was to red for her.
"Well whatever the case, chances are someone has purposely done this" said Spike.
"I don't think so, Illyria is so powerful for that kind of control" said Wesley and Illyria nodded to him in support.
"Well whatever the case I think its time we called on Buffy" said Angel.
" She is in Scotland and I don't think she would help up anyway" said Wesley.
"Wesley would you make the calls, Serena is not safe here." said Angel.
"I will go with her" said Illyria.
"Are you sure, it's a bit to early for you to leave." said Wesley.
"Angel, you gave me the task of being Serena's protector. I follow her till I know she is safe" said Illyria.
"Fine but please don't do anything wild while your there" said Angel. Illyria only nodded to say she understood and would follow that statement.
"You leave tomorrow, Wesley make the call" and that was the end of the meeting.
"Illyria would you mind putting on something a little less, look at me" said Angel.
"Go talk to Harmony" said Angel and he left.
Okay I'm really playing around with this and having some fun. Now the slayer/consummation/power thing was apart of my original crossover Idea so I'm happy that I can put it in. Also Angel watches my see that Illyria is not as blunt as she is on the show but this is after she has settled into human society. Also Connor is in this. So what happened in season three was right but not season 4( which happened to by the way, my least favorite season) He came back and after they took over Wolfram and Hart Connor stayed with Angel.
I hope you like it.
