Summary: Jared talks to Angel

"I don't know how you did it, Angel. You must have balls of steel."

"You're telling me. First time I've had fresh blood sinceā€¦before I was cursed."

"But you had Buffy's after I went and tried to kill ya. Sorry about that, by the way."

"But that was Slayer's blood, though. I see now why Spike's been drawn to it since he drained that Slayer in China."

"So you don't see any consequences?"

"I'll just do the same I did after Buffy- double up on the blood bags. Once I remind the demon that's all it'll get, it'll quiet down. I had to do it though- they would have killed her otherwise."

"I just worry about you, is all. I've never really seen Angelus, but I don't want you running the risk of letting him loose," she said, concerned.

"Don't worry. I'll be careful."


Angel was leaving when he sensed someone behind him and spun around to see a dark-haired man.

"Are you Angel? Faith's friend?"

"Who are you?"

"I'm Jared. I want to help you."

"So how did you find out about me?"

"I'm Faith's friend. I already know what you are. You can ask Faith about me."
