Disclaimer: No I don't own Angel. Someone else does. You know who they are. So yeah.
"What did you just say?" he asked me.
"You heard me. I want to know if you have any plans on helping me going back home?" I asked with my arms crossed over my chest.
"Cordy, give us a minute" he told her.
"You'll be okay?" she asked him. He simply nodded before she headed out the office door.
"Meg, I'm wondering now, why the hell are you bringing this up?" he asked. "You could've told me earlier."
"Um, excuse me don't go all postal on me about letting you know earlier cause you're too wound up on this demon thing" I replied.
"This demon might end this world" he said.
"Right and me going home isn't?" I asked crossing my arms over my chest.
"Look that's not what I meant" he started to say.
"Then what did you mean then huh? Was I destined to be stuck here forever? Well, let me tell you something. It's not going to work for me. If you don't want to bother helping me, that's fine by me" I said, starting to turn and walk away.
"Wait" he called out and I stopped. "You don't have to do this by yourself."
I spun around and laughed bitterly. "Really now? Then what are you going to do when you got a demon on your mind that you want to hunt down and get rid of then?"
He was silent after I asked him that. "That's what I thought" I said and I exited the office.
"What the hell was that for? He was only trying to help" Cordy said angrily at me.
"Take it from someone who was a bitch back in high school and only cared about her popularity" I retorted back.
"What does that suppose to mean?" she asked.
"Uh oh catfight" Gunn whispered.
"Shut up!" we both yelled at him.
"Look, you should be grateful that he is at least attempting to help you out. You would be so lost in this world you wouldn't even know where to start" she said.
"You're right. But still, he should at least get going on destroying that demon, right?" I asked and then I walked around her and made my way upstairs. I got up there and groaned in frustration.
Life sucks. Especially when you're stuck in a alternate world.
I decided to go out tonight. I know that I wouldn't go too far. I only let Fred and Gunn know where I was going and to rely the message on to Angel if necessary. I walked down the streets of LA until I came across the bar that I was in a week ago.
I'd gotten through the security check and made my way over to the bar. I sat down and just stared ahead, letting today's events fall into place. I sighed and I looked down.
"Something seems to be troubling you" a voice interrupted my thoughts. I looked up and saw that it was Lorne that was behind the bar tonight.
"No, it's nothing really" I said.
"Come on kid, you to have at least a drink or something" he said.
"Fine. What do you have?" I asked.
A few minutes later, I was drinking what it appears to be a sea breeze. I'll admit, when I did taste it, it had a weird taste but after awhile, it wasn't so bad.
"Now, that you're settled, can you tell me that's bothering you?" he asked.
"I don't have to sing in front of everyone do I?" I asked.
"Maybe so that way I can get a feeling on what is bothering you" he replied.
"Can I ask you something?" I asked.
"My, your full of questions tonight" Lorne said. "You can ask me anything but hold that thought." He disappeared around the bar and went up towards the stage and introduced someone else to sing karaoke.
"Okay sugar spill" he said.
"Have you ever had to keep a secret so big that someone else had made that discovery on its own?" I asked.
"Whoa, um not really. Why what is it?"
"You can't tell Angel or anyone. I was exploring the hotel one night cause I couldn't sleep and I was exploring the room, not intentionally or on purpose. Then I came across this room. When I went to open it, it was locked" I explained.
"Wow. I didn't know he would hide something in that room" I heard him mumbled.
"You know something about that room" I stated rather than questioned.
"Look kid, I wouldn't try to go putting your nose into something that doesn't really belong. It would either make it better or worse, whichever comes your way" he said.
I was left alone in my thoughts. I had to know what was behind that door.
Even if I was to risk my life, nothing would stop me.
I headed out of Caritas later that night. It had started to get cooler so I snuggled myself into my sweatshirt. Then, I made my way down the street by myself.
As I was making my way back to the hotel, I had one thought that was coming into mind. Claire. My roommate and best friend since we were kids. What the heck was she going to think when she comes home to an empty apartment? What will she think when I come back told her I got zapped into a TV show?
Will she believe me?
All I know, is that I need to get out of here and fast.
I was near the hotel just only a few steps away when I saw two people standing by a dark car. I got nervous as I was getting closer. I didn't know who they were and what were they up to.
I got closer and when I saw who they were, I froze.
What the hell were Gavin and Lilah doing at the hotel?
Gavin then turned and when he saw me, he nudged at Lilah, who then gave me a sly smile.
This wasn't going to be good.
"Just the person we wanted to see" she said, coming closer.
"What the hell do you two psychos want?" I asked.
"Come on, can't you just be nice for two guests?" she asked.
"Not to those who aren't welcomed" I replied snidely.
"Look, Morgan, let's cut to the chase" Gavin interrupted. "The point is we want you to do something for us."
"I'm not buying it" I said. What do they want from me?
"Let's just call it a proposition. What do you say?" he asked.
A/n: Dun, dun, dun!
Hi, long time eh? Well like a week after I posted last, I was putting Christmas decorations in my basement when I fell of the third to last step and sprained my ankle. Long story short, I missed two weeks of school, a month of work and I was in an air cast. Not fun at all.
But now I'm back so yeah. I wanted to put some Lorne time in, cause as some of you may know or not know, the actor, Andy Hallett, passed away a year ago unexpectedly from congestive heart failure at the age of 33 on March 29th . That was a shock and unexpected thing that happened. From my face book account, there is an event that's going to happened this March 29th as Remembering Andy Hallett. It's going to be an annual thing so if you do have a face book, check that out. The link is somewhere on my profile but I am going to do it. You can wear green to honor him, sing, call people food names( I don't know how that works out!) or if you are the legal age, drink a sea breeze which is mentioned in this story.
Don't forget to review! Only ten chapters left until this story is over! Yikes, where has the time gone?
Signing out for now,
