Alright guys, here is the end.
I know it's been forever (sorry about that), I mean it's been like over a year since I updated this story.
Once again, sorry.
I'm not gonna lie, it's a bit lighter compared to the other chapters. More fluff than angst.
But c'mon it's summer, who wants to read about stressful situations. It's time to smile!!!!
Oh, and I noticed I had this under Buffy & Angel, but it should really be under Buffy & Angelus. So that's been changed.
**Warning** Long ass AN at the bottom. Make sure to read!!! It's mucho importante!!!
One Year Later
Angelus sensed Buffy coming to the door and opened it right after she knocked.
"I'm here to get Andy." She said.
"No shit." He replied.
Buffy gave him a look that screamed 'Go to hell' and then said, "How is she?"
"Better. She's really strong, maybe stronger than both of us. And she definitely has no respect for the rules."
"Remind you of anyone?" Buffy said.
"Or maybe two." He replied.
Buffy chuckled quietly to herself.
"What?" Angelus asked confused.
"Nothing. I just remembered that Xander is coming over today. And, well, Andy loves to play with and mess up his hair to annoy him. Last time she put it in a bunch of little pig tails and took thousands of photos."
Angels started to laugh a long with her. "That sounds like Andy. Always into mischief. She certainly seems to like that camera."
"Technology is new to her. I don't blame her. If I had never seen a TV before I would have been amazed, too."
"Remember when she first saw one?"
"Yeah. first she was startled, then frightened, then fascinated with it. She almost jumped it."
They both laughed at the memory. They assumed that in Andy's previous dimension technology was nonexistent.
"You know," Buffy began softly. "Having her back is really great."
"Yeah, who knew such a little ball of hell could carry so much life."
Buffy was about to say something else when Andy appeared at the door.
"Okay, I'm ready." She declared.
"Did you clean up the broken vase?" Angelus asked.
While Andy was running around that morning she had crashed into a vase that was almost a hundred years old. Angelus wasn't really mad about the vase, he said he was more mad that she was causing such a ruckus. But really, he was more worried that one day she would hurt herself from her careless attitude and ball of energy spirit.
"What vase?" Andy replied innocently
Angelus glared at her, but Andy merely shrugged. It continued to amaze Buffy how fearless Andy could be. Despite the fact that Angelus was a blood sucking, creature of the night Andy acted as if he was just another human. When she first arrived she created a facade of bravery and confidence, when really she was terrified of her knew surroundings. Everything was so different compared to what she was used to. But soon that facade became a reality. she got used to her surroundings and faced things head on.
Andy stepped out side and said bye to Angelus as she waved. Andy never called him dad and rarely ever referred to him as Angelus. She preferred to steer clear of names.
"Bye, my child." Angelus said as Andy walked towards Buff's car, another amazing creation of technology that fascinated her.
As Buffy turned to follow her, Angelus lightly grabbed her upper arm to turn her back to him. "Just to be clear," He said. "I still despise you, but... you're doing a good job with her." He said in almost of whisper.
Buffy smirked at him. "Same here." She said and then her face softened. "You're not so bad yourself." She added.
Buffy walked to her car with a feeling of mutual respect between her and the vampire of her once lost lover.
Well Buffy and Angelus still hate each other and I wouldn't have it any other way. Angel is awesome, Angelus is awesome... but he's not an okay guy.
But it looks like they aren't going to be killing each other anytime soon, seeing as how that would probably really piss of Andy. And, I don't think that's a good idea.
Well anyway, I know it was short. But I still hope you like it for what is was worth.
It's just that I'm not really into Buffy anymore (at least not right now), but I've always felt guilty for just leaving the story, so I compromised.
This originally was going to be like a 15 chapter story, but then I lost interest. So as a compromise I forced myself to write you guys one last final chapter to somewhat wrap up the story.
I know it's not nearly as good as the story could have been, but I hope you guys still like it. And, I hope you like the softer, somewhat happy ending I wrote.
Originally, it was going to be a bitter sweet ending, but as an "I-am-so-freakin'-sorry" apology gift I made it happier, actually much happier. No one died yay!!!!
But I might one day decide to write the original story, If I get hooked on Buffy again (It could actually happen). If I do I will post a notice here. So you might want to keep this on your alert list or add it if it's not.
Well, it's been real guys. Until my next love for Buffy and her world...

P.S. I'm not gonna lie after writing this AN. I'm contemplating whether or not I want to post this or continue writing the original. But I'm going to make myself post this, because if I don't then I worry I will just end up leaving you guys hanging again, and if I did that I would feel terrible. But I do hope you guys still like this version, too.
Still contemplating. LOL
