EPILOGUE

"Feeding time, dead boy!" Caitlyn said in a singsong voice.

Angelus glared at the girl in contempt. "When I get out I am going to kill you."

Cat pouted. "What no torture?"

"I don't like you."

"Well gee. You're no fun." She said and tossed a thermos in to the cell. "Enjoy!"

Angelus took a long drink as he watched Cat go back up the stairs. "This is humiliating."

Buffy leaned against Xander with a sigh. "This is nice."

Xander grinned at her. "Yeah it is." He kissed her softly. "Happy endings are good aren't they?"

"They," Buffy replied as she kissed him back, "definitely are."

Jesse shook his head at the couple. "Guys. I'm trying to eat here."

Xander grinned. "No you aren't your just mixing everything together in an attempt to gross people out."

"Ok. That too." Jesse said.

"Hey." Oz greeted as he sat down. "How goes it so far?"

"You mean Willow?" Buffy asked.

Oz nodded. "Yeah."

"She's doing alright. She's coping. She's been looking all over the net for some form of that gypsy curse."

"Cool. Any luck?"

"She has a few leads. Nothing concrete though."

Oz nodded again. He glanced at Jesse's so called 'lunch'. He just raised an eyebrow.

"That's it?" Jesse asked. "No 'eww'? Or even 'gross'?"

"Nope."

"Damn it. I give up." Jesse said.

"Ugh. Immature much?" Cordelia Chase said as she walked by. "That is so disgusting!"

Jesse grinned. "Success!"

"Any luck, Willow?" Doyle asked. He pulled up a chair next to Willow's.

Willow's newly short red hair bounced as she shook her head. "I haven't got any replies yet. Keep your fingers crossed."

"Eh. We'll find something for Angel boy."

"I hope so." Cat said as she entered the room. "Angelus is just plain mean."

Willow smiled, "I take it annoying and brooding is preferable?"

"Yes." Doyle and Cat replied in unison.

Willow chuckled as she turned back to the computer.

Peter took a sip of his coffee. "So let me get this straight. We now have a very angry vampire locked up in a cell in the basement."

Joyce nodded. "Yes. I always wondered why Cat wanted that in there."

Charlie chuckled. "I have ideas but um.. I better not mention that here."

Joyce smiled. "Good idea."

"And now instead of a male vampire with a soul on our side we have Willow?" Peter continued.

"Mhm." Joyce replied and sipped her coffee.

Peter shook his head. "This gets more complicated day by day."

"Yes it does." Joyce said. "And as much as I'm enjoying this psuedo happy ending, one thing is bothering me."

"And what is that?" Peter asked.

Joyce set her coffee cup down on the table. "Just how that jewelry box got cursed in the first place."
