Promises. What good were promises when they weren't kept? Her father had promised to always be there, but when the IRS came, he'd ran, leaving her behind.

She thought about Angel. Angel had never broken a promise to her. Angel's word meant something. He was a man of integrity, a good man.

Angel silently watched Cordelia. He watched the gamut of emotions dance their way across her features. Everything from disappointment to joy.

He sat down, pulling her into his arms. "I love you," he whispered. "And I always will. I promise."

Cordy kissed him softly. "I know," she smiled.
