Making A Connection

She must have been blind. She must have been blind to have not realized, to have not noticed that Angel was the one she was searching for – and not in the knight-in-shining-armour sense that she had believed was implied in the first of their conversations.

She shouldn't have so easily been persuaded that maybe, just maybe, it was her night.

Making a connection was just that – making a connection – and she had thought...

Well, it didn't matter what she had thought.

Angel was killer.

She should have seen it from the start. She should have seen it in the way he acted.

She must have been blind to think that maybe she had finally found the connection she had secretly been hoping for.

What she had found in Angel was as far from what she wanted as she could get.
