The moment Angel held their newborn daughter in his arms, he knew. Knew that after living for over 200 years, life was just beginning. Elizabeth yawned, snuggling deeper into his arms and his heart melted. From the doorway, a teary Cordelia smiled.

She made her way across the room, joining her family with a kiss to Angel's lips. "Hey," she whispered.

Angel smiled softly.

They watched their daughter in silence for a few minutes, neither wanting to break the peacefulness of the moment. For the first time, they had everything they wanted. Each other, a child. And life was perfect.
