Author's Note: Takes place about a year after Not Fade Away. Cordelia doesn't die in You're Welcome.
Cordelia watched Angel as he held their newborn daughter. Big strong man that he was still had the gentlest of touches. She smiled as she thought about all the times he'd shown that with her.
Angel was softly caressing their daughter's cheek with one finger, a look of awe shining in his dark eyes.
Cordelia walked over and joined her family. "What are you thinking about?" she asked.
Angel looked up and smiled. "How lucky I am."
Cordy smiled. "It's been an amazing year. We defeated the Senior Partners and won the Apocalypse; you got your humanity back."
Angel nodded. "Then we got married and you gave birth to Katie." He looked at her for a moment. "You're amazing," he told her.
Cordy lay her head on Angel's shoulder, watching Katie with a smile. She turned to Angel. "I love you so much."
Angel kissed her softly. "And I love you."
