I am so sorry that this took so long to post, I had a little writers block problem.
Chapter 2: Fairytales
"Are you ready, Babe?" Angel called to Buffy from his spot at the desk in their hotel room.
Buffy scuffed as she put her dangly ear ring in. "The Party doesn't even start for a few hours." She called, and then mumbled "Why you are making me get ready so early is beyond me."
"Because you take too long."
Buffy looked towards the door to see Angel leaning against the bathroom door frame with his arms crossed and a small smirk.
"So not funny!"
"Oh, I don't know. It was a little funny."
Buffy rolled her eyes playfully. "You think you're cute."
"I'm pretty sure I know I'm cute." He laughed. "You look beautiful."
Buffy narrowed her eyes at him. "Not too much?" She looked down at her new white strapless dress that she had bought after they met with Kate. "Your dad gave the okay."
Angel stepped further into the bathroom. "Since when did my dad start picking out your clothes?" He smiled down at her and put her arms around her waist.
"Since I told him we were going to a New Year's Eve Party and he asked me if I had anything to wear…" She shrugged.
"My parents love you." He smiled. "Not more than I do though."
"Well of course!" She smiled back, giving him a light kiss.
Buffy turned back to the mirror. "Just a few finishing touches."
"Ah!" Angel turned around and walked towards the bed. "I'm taking a nap."
"It won't be that long."
Angel laughed. "This coming from the girl who made us two hours late meeting our friends at The Bronze."
"They didn't mind." Buffy said before putting her lip gloss on. "Well, my friends didn't mind."
"We have the same friends." Angel said lying down on the bed.
Buffy shook her head, putting the top back on her lip gloss and checking her lips. "No. You have a friend that I don't."
"You still don't like Doyle?"
"He called me a prostitute!" Buffy exclaimed as she came out of the bathroom.
"He didn't say those words exactly…"
Buffy rolled her eyes. "Yeah well, he never said sorry either." Taking a deep breath she grabbed her purse and long sleeve half cardigan sweater. She hoped it would be enough, not having to deal with snow before she hadn't packed for this cold weather… and a big winter coat wouldn't go with her dress. Snow wasn't just pretty to look at, it was cold! "Ready?"
Walking out of the elevator hand in hand Buffy and Angel were greeted by the man at the front desk. "Hello, Mr. O'Connor."
"Hi." Angel smiled. "Is our ride here?"
The man nodded. "Yes Sir. It is out front."
"Are we taking a cab to the party? Cause that is going to take forever." Buffy said walking out the front doors. "Won't the subway be faster? Not that I am all that fond of the subway. I got boobed earlier."
"Excuse me?" Angel stopped walking to give her an odd look. "Boobed?"
Buffy nodded. "Yeah, you know… when someone is walking by and their boobs touch your boobs."
Angel closed his eyes and nodded. "Of course, why didn't I know that… because when a girl gets boobed you want to be able to fantasize about it."
Buffy laughed and lightly swatted him in the arm as they walked further out towards the curb in front of the Hotel. Buffy looked around but didn't see a cab. "Okay, so where is it?"
"There." Angel pointed to the left at a carriage hooked to two white horses.
Buffy's eyes got large and her mouth dropped open. "You're kidding me, right?" She looked in awe at the large white convertible carriage, when her eyes landed on the horses she smiled brightly.
"How often do I kid?"
Buffy gave him an annoyed look but smiled when he held his hand out to help her into the carriage. "Thank you."
Once she was in the carriage Angel hopped in and sat next to her. "Cold?" He asked holding up a blanket that was folded on the seat across from them. He unfolded the blanket and laid it across their laps.
"You know this doesn't happen in real life, right? This happened in movies and Fairytales."
"It happens tonight." He smiled.
Buffy leaned over and lightly kissed him. "I love you."
"Let's save the I love you's for later… okay?"
"Why? What else are you going to do?" She asked curiously.
Angel just shrugged with an amused look on his face.
Buffy cuddled up closer to Angel and he put his arm around her as the two white horses pulled the carriage along the New York City streets.
"Angel, where are we going?" Buffy asked looking around.
Placing a soft kiss to her temple he smiled. "It's a surprise."
"Don't be so secretive. I don't like it when you have secrets." She pouted.
Angel smiled against her hair. "And why is that?"
"Cause" she looked up at him still pouting. "You know something I don't."
"That is normally what a secret is, Love." He narrowed his eyes playfully.
Buffy sighed dramatically. "Well, it's not allowed." Causing Angel to laugh.
"Rockefeller Center?" She asked as Angel jumped down out of the carriage, holding both hands out for her. She took his hands and carefully stepped down, not wanting to break a heel or fall. "Where is everyone? This place was packed the last time we were here." She looked around, not seeing a soul in sight other than the carriage driver.
Angel smiled knowingly. "I don't know." He pulled her gently by the hand. "Come on." He lead her over to a booth where an elderly woman sat with two pairs of ice skates sitting on a counter. Angel picked them up in one hand and took her by the hand again.
"Angel, as much as I love Ice Skating I don't think I am wearing the right clothes."
Angel sat down on a bench and set both pairs of ice skates down. "I think you are dressed just fine." He smiled looking at her tight white dress.
"For Ice Skating."
He gave her a small smile. "Please? For me?"
"Fine, but only because I am a sucker for you." She smiled back, sitting next to him to take her high heels off to put the white Ice Skates on.
They Ice Skated for about 45 minutes before Buffy noticed there was a man with a camcorder pointed at them. She kept glancing at him in hopes he would go away but he never did.
"Angel, I'm getting a little creeped out." She whispered as they skated while holding hands. "That guy over there has been recording us for a while now."
Angel shrugged. "Maybe he is waiting for me to fall so he can send it into America's Funniest Home Video's."
"Is that show even on anymore?" She asked. "Wait, that is so pointless right now. You're not even a little weirded out?"
"Right now I am just trying not to fall on my face." He smiled. "You're the Ice Skater here, I'm the fall-flat-on-my-ass guy. Besides I don't going after him would help, it's not very intimidating when someone falls on ice and has to crawl to the edge while trying to scare someone away."
Buffy laughed. "Point taken. You are actually doing very well, you haven't fallen." After Thanksgiving Buffy and Angel had gone Ice Skating on a date and she soon found out that her boyfriend wasn't perfect at everything like she thought he was. He spent more time on his butt, back and clinging to the wall at the Ice Skating Rink then actually skating but they had been working on it and he wasn't that bad anymore.
"Yet." He pointed out. "I haven't fallen yet."
"So I take it we are just going to ignore the guy and let him take out video home and add it to his creepy collection of videotaping random people."
Buffy gave him a small smile. "As long as we are clear."
Suddenly, Angel stopped skating. Buffy felt him lightly tug on her hand as she was moving forward. She stopped and looked back at him. "You okay? Do you want to stop now?"
"Just for a minute."
"Do you want to go sit down?" She asked him.
Angel slowly slid down on the ice.
"Angel, when I asked if you wanted to sit down I didn't mean ON the ice." She laughed.
"I know." He reached into his pants pocket and pulled out a small box. She gave him a questioning look. "Buffy… you are my best friend, my shoulder to lean on, the only person I know I can tell anything to and you won't judge me or think any different of me. The one person I know I can count on. I can be completely myself around you and happiness just comes so easily when I am with you. I want to have the non-biker stereotype life with you- big house with a fence, a dog, 2.5 kids… even though you don't know what that means." Buffy let out a small laugh remembering their conversation on Halloween- the night they got together and Angel smiled as he opened the box to reveal a diamond ring. "Babe, I will even let you hold the remote control… unless I am watching Sports Center… or Pretty Little Liars."
"I like that show too." She whispered. "Did you see what people are saying on the message boards, they think Ezra is in on the A-Team. If he is, I'm going to be so pissed!"
"Well, we know from previous episodes that none of the Liars are safe from their personal lives being dragged… wait…" Angel shook his head to clear his mind, this conversation was going somewhere else. "Was there a yes in there somewhere because my leg is almost numb."
Buffy smiled. "There was meant to be a yes in there." She grabbed him by the forearms to help him get up.
He almost lost his balance but steadied himself and grabbed on to her. "It's so much easier going down than getting up." He looked behind him at the ice.
"Angel." She whispered. "Can I have my ring now?"
"Of course!" He smiled taking the ring out of the box and slipped his mother's ring off her ring finger, putting it in the small jewelry box to give back to his mother later. He slowly put Buffy's new official engagement ring on her finger. "Does this mean you forgive me?"
"For lying to you… telling you I was with my dad when I wasn't." He told her.
Buffy pointed at her finger which now had a very beautiful and most likely very expensive diamond ring on it. "This is where you and Gunn where?"
She smiled and kissed him. "By the way, 2.5 kids means the average amount of kids that families have… it doesn't mean someone wants half of a kid."
Angel laughed and kissed her again. "So you were listening to me."
As they walked back to the carriage she couldn't help but feel like a Princess and thought back to earlier in the night when she told Angel horse pulled carriages where only in Fairytales. Buffy stopped and looked up at Angel "Angel, your my Fairytale." She whispered.
