The One Person I Can Always Count On.... [Wednesday, August 17th, 2005 @ 12:26am]

I couldn't believe Buffy slept with Angel..not after everything that happened, everything she knew. Not even the fact that she slept with Angel...the fact that she slept with him as...well the blood thirsty demon he is. What was she thinking? Was she even thinking at all? To many questions and not enough answers. Not that if I asked Buffy I would get them anyway. I mean she probably wasn't even going to tell me about Angel..poor little Dawnie right, can't tell her anything because wouldn't want to hurt her little feelings or turn her into a puddle of worries...I am sooo over that.

I wasn't really sure where I was heading..but I did know that it had to be anywhere that wasnt near the house. I had a feeling Buffy would come looking for me like she always did. I may be young..but I'm not stupid. I mean hello a sister for a slayer, two bad ass wicca's in the house and a carpenter..they would think by now I could at least take care of myself. Sure..there have been reasons that would deny that but lets not dread on the past.

I stopped at a house that I had gone to often when something was bothering me. I knew I could always come here. I was always welcome and they loved having me around. I think it's because we both share in the same kinda interest. Truth was though...this place was now empty.

I looked at it as I saw the living room light flip on.

Okay..it was suppose to be empty. I walked slowly up the walk way and made my way to the front door. I reached for the door knob and turned it..and it was unlocked. Okay in any other town that could be a good thing. But you kinda learn fast that people don't usually just leave there doors unlocked. I guess it could have been worse..it could have been wide open.

I opened the door and walked in. The first place I looked was in the living room. Since that was where I had saw the light come on. Then I smelled a familiar scent. The smell of a nice pot of tea coming from the kitchen. I turned to look in the kitchen and sure enough there he was.


I ran over and gave him one of my big Dawnie hugs.

[ mood | sore ]

The one thing I hate most about demons is the slime. I hate being slimed. Tonight's adventures pitted me with a Kylatick demon. They aren't all too bright but they do seem to be quite pussy. The fight was hard and long, since there was so many of them, but I do believe we got most of them. I would hope so because I think I'm covered in most of their bodily fluids.

When I arrive back to the mansion, I start to think how a long hot shower would do me a world of good. The slime and dirt is starting to make my skin itch and crawl. Parking my car, I get out and go up to the front door. When I open it, it seems awfully quiet in there. I wonder where everyone is?

I deposit my weapons by the front door, promising myself that I'll come back later and clean them. Now I just want a cup of hot tea, a shower and to see Fred. I walk through the foyer and look around.

"Anyone home?" I ask the house. It doesn't answer me back.

I sigh and go to the kitchen to make myself a cuppa, not caring if I'm dripping slime all over the place.

[ mood | pessimistic ]

Dru kind of staggered back to her so-called home, feeling depressed and sore. Buffy had definitely given her a "run for her money" (though there was no money involved, and Dru had mentally pointed out to herself) and, sadly, Dru had been forced to run away. And now she was incredibly disappointed with herself. And she knew Angelus, would be too.

"Princess is a bad girl," Dru mumbled to herself, walking past the door into the abandoned "home" and made her way to the back. She sat down slowly on the dead, brown grass and stared at the ground. She couodn't go inside. Angelus may be in there, along with Darla, and they both would be grumpy with her for failing. So instead, Dru sat outside, secretly wishing that Angelus would come punish her. Sighing, she used the tips of her fingers to break the ends off the ends of the dead blades of grass, passing the time until her Daddy came looking for her.

finding answers [Monday, July 4th, 2005 @ 11:33pm]

[ mood | bitchy ]

I stormed out the door, not following Dawn but to get some answers. I wasn't exactly sure where Drusilla was..or where she would be after I just kicked her ass but I knew one person who could help me.

I walked cautiously into the cemmetary I usually patrol and found a crypt I knew well. I knocked on the stone door, hoping he would be there. I needed his help, and also I wouldn't mind talking to him right about now either.

I stood there and waited.

So after being down and out of the action as of late .. let's just say it's a long story involving the dissolution of my parents marriage, forcing me to more or less leave the country and see if everything was okay down there. I'm back and I'm good as ever. At least in the sense that one can be good in Sunnydale. Which, more or less, doesn't happen. I arrived back at Angel's old mansion, which wonders of wonders, we were staying at and dropped my bags off in an empty room which I claimed as my own.

I wasn't in the mood to unpack. In fact, I wasn't in the mood to do much. I mean, I hadn't talked to my parents in a million years and when they finally do contact me? They're getting a divorce. With a roll of my eyes, I headed downstairs towards the kitchen. I needed coffee. Or a very strong, knock you out of your socks type alcoholic drink.

I settled for coffee and grabbed the pot, pouring myself a cup. It was then I realized that hey, not a soul came back to say hi, how was your trip and your lack-of-parental marriage? Which, I guess was sort of a good thing. But not.

"Guys??" I asked, walking out of the kitchen, mug in my hands. "Yoo hoo. Anybody home?" I asked.

Then I started to glow. At least I didn't drop the mug on my levitation trip.

coming home [Tuesday, June 28th, 2005 @ 1:41pm]

[ mood | cranky ]

I quietly opened the door, not wanting to wake anybody up. I poked my head inside before I actually came in. I saw Dawn sitting in the living room, watching TV. Coming in, I closed the door behind me. I brought my hand up and lightly touched my eye. I now had a nice shiner from my fight with Drusilla. I gritted my teeth as I thought about it. I should've just dusted her when I had the chance. I sighed, shaking my head. Putting my coat up on its rack, I went over to her and somewhat smiled.

"Hey.." I said to her. She looked kind of out of it, or that something was wrong. Guess it was because I sort of just bailed on her earlier, and she still has no clue why.

I sat myself down next to her, pushing hair out of her face.

"Dawn, I'm sorry I just left earlier. I needed some time to think..about stuff." I said, hesitantly to her.

I sighed, glancing out the window. Just wanted to make sure no one followed me home. That would be just what I needed.

((open to Dawnie))

Coming home again... [Wednesday, June 22nd, 2005 @ 7:34pm]

I stepped into our home and looked around. I didn't see anything but I could tell. A smile spread across my face.

"Somebody's been playing without me. Naughty, naughty children...And after I did all the work too."

Leaning against the wall, I bit my lip and waited for Angelus to make his appearance.

"Lover? Oh come on...don't I at least get a hug? I did after play an instrumental part in bringing you back. Not to mention, I'm the one who created you in the first place... I've missed you. Dru and I have had such a dreadful time. And you, well I know we can't actually blame you, but really Angel,...no love loss there let me tell you. Knocked me up, stole my baby, and then runs off to be with the slayer."

Looking down I flattened the wrinkles in my clothes...

"Oh well, by gones. We can all be one great big murderous family now. Doesn't that sound fun? Oh and once we've settled all of our scores here in Sunnydale, maybe you could help me get Connor back. After all, I'm sure if you were to ask for your son back those fine upstanding southern folk would have no trouble handing him over. But for now tell me...that soul didn't hurt you too badly do it? That I've never understood. How it can change someone so much."

I closed my eyes and allowed myself to take in everything around me. A human perhaps would say I breathed in the night air. Of course, hello, vampire, so not a whole lot of breathing going on. But still, things were starting to become right again. My family was coming together once more.

sudden ideas [Sunday, June 19th, 2005 @ 5:08pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

Dawn had disappeared from our room to go talk to Buffy. She had been gone for quite a while, but I think Buffy had gone out to do some patrolling. Tara had fallen back asleep and I sat there, just watching her, my hand softly stroking her hair. Then, suddenly it hit me. I stood up from the bed and went into Buffy's room, just to see if she was there. Nope. Patrolling, just like I thought. In the room though, I felt something. Something not right. I couldn't put my finger on what it was though. I just walked out and headed down the stairs. I had left a little note on the kitchen table for Tara and Dawn in case they wondered where I was. Then, I grabbed my coat and headed out.

I began to walk down the street, putting my coat on as I went. I glanced around me, and subconsciously my hand went to the wooden stake I had put in my inside pocket. I felt that it was there and sighed in relief;just in case.

I finally came to my destination. I stood out in front of the door, hearing the sounds coming from inside. Music, laughter, people, or demons talking away. I hugged my coat closer to me as I made my way inside. I took a deep breath just as I saw all of the demons, vampires and only god knows what else in there. Then, I saw him. He was up on stage, singing a song. I should've known his voice as soon as I had walked in. I decided to sit and wait for him to finish. I walked over to the bar, took a seat and declined a drink from the tender.

I smiled up at him as he looked my way. It almost looked as if he was singing to me. I kept my eyes on him the entire time, until his ballad was over. He said a few words to a couple people when he was finished, but then came right over to me with that warm smile of his.

"Hey Lorne." I said with a smile back. "Liked the song."

((open to Lorne or maybe Angelus trying to stir things up in the non-violent demon bar? :) ))

"Hide and go seek isn't any fun if the other party doesn't play," Dru said, closing in on the little girl she had snagged away from her mother earlier. It was night, and Angelus had said Dru could go Slayer hunting. And what better way to hunt a Slayer than to have live bait?

"So you see," Dru said, smiling pleasantly and extended her hands. "You need to scream in order to be heard." The grave yard was quiet and dark, and she knew Buffy had to come through this way. She just had to! She was going to show Angelus that Buffy was no threat to him, or Dru herself. She would show him.

"YOU believe in me, don't you?" she said, putting her hand on the girl's shoulder, who promptly began screaming.

Prophecy Like Dreams [Thursday, May 26th, 2005 @ 11:55am]

"Maybe we should tell Buffy about it.."

I had looked at Willow when she said that. I really didn't want to tell Buffy. That was all she needed to hear. I mean she was finally happy for once. Willow had gave me a little nudge cause I had been kinda quiet. Just kinda thinking about not only what I was gonna do..but just how I was gonna do it.

I got up from the bed and looked to Willow and Tara. I told Willow she was wrong. We shouldn't tell Buffy....I should. And from there I took a deep breath to kind of gather my thoughts and opened the door. I looked down the hall to where Buffy's door was and it was closed. Oh please let Angel not be in there. I looked at Will who was standing behind me and I said to her. "Maybe she isn't home" Willow smiled and gave me a little push and I went down the hall.

I knocked on the door and looked back down the hall to Will and Tara's room and she had gone back into her room and now her door was closed. I waited to hear a voice..but got nothing. I knocked once more and still nothing. Okay so this means two things...she is either not home...or asleep. And if she is asleep..please let her be alone.

I turned the door handle and it wasn't locked. Okay..thats a good sign. Usually Buffy is smart enough that if she is with someone she will lock the door. I heard the music on..it was soft so okay here goes nothing...

"Okay, Buffy I need to tell you something...I don't know how so I'm just going to say it....."

I looked in her bed and she wasn't there. Where she usually is. It wasn't that late..or early..Huh maybe she went out to patrol. Usually she says something. Then I heard something. I looked down the floor and saw Buffy. I could see her due to the light shining in from the hallway.


I flicked on the light switch. I walked over to her and knelt down beside her.

(Kay sis, it's open to you)

Drusilla was pitching a fit. Her room, the room that Angelus had stomped out of not too long ago, was now almost completely in ruin. The only things left standing were her dolls and her bed. The chairs had been thrown against the walls, the walls themselves had aquired a few holes curtesy of Dru's now bleeding fists. The lamp had been broken as well, along with the dresser.

Drusilla had definately pitched a fit. The sky was screaming at her, all sorts of horrible, nasty things...Images raced through her mind like little bugs in mating season, and what she was seeing had caused her to be very content with breaking and destroying everything in her room. And now she sat in her room, overly calm and waiting. Waiting for something to happen. Waiting for her Daddy to come back. Or possibly Grandmum.

But at the present time, Dru was all alone. "The Princess is all alone," she drawled out sadly. "And something tells her that the tick-tock of time is chasing the rabbit faster down the hole than before."

Well, it's been an unexpected week.

I hadn't opened Caritas2 in days, because I had been spending all my time with Nia. And admittedly, I felt kind of bad that I was literally hogging her, I mean given the fact that she'd come to Sunnydale in the first place to see Angel.

However, not to be too hard on myself, throughout the entire week, the both of us had tried to get ahold of that big brooding lug and we hadn't been able to. It's like he just wasn't around. I wonder what he's gotten himself caught up in? Probably a marathon broodfest, so I wasn't going to try to interrupt. I mean, the guy needed his 'time', although I was usually the one who'd been there to pull him out. But, I was busy. Ironically enough, and even stranger enough, it was because I was with.... a woman. I know, I know, pretty uncharacteristic, but hey -- there were things about me some people just didn't know. And one of those things was that this particular demon had a soft spot for raven haired Irish girls with the greatest set of legs this side of the Pacific. I mean, who wouldn't?

Anyhow, things between us were going pretty well. I was being as much of a gentlemen as I possibly could, even though it took every ounce of my will to not just throw myself at her. After all, she was Angel's (long-lost) younger sister, and as vamped out as she was, Angel would probably have my head on a stake if I tried anything. He's the overprotective sort, and I know how much he loves his sister, especially now that she's back in his life.

So.. we spent most of our time together in the evenings, that way I could go out in public and not draw too much attention to myself. Conversation between us hadn't been awkward, and thankfully the girl laughed at my (sometimes) lame jokes. It wasn't until last night that the two of us had been walking down at the beach and I was completely elated when she slipped her hand into mine. My heart lept from my ass into my throat and it was with that one simple gesture that I became a very happy demon. I couldn't help grin from ear to ear.

I suppose it might not be a bad idea to try to get into contact with Angel, and it was starting to worry me (and Nia even moreso) that he just wasn't answering his calls. I guess now would be as good a time as any to try to track him down so he could spend some more time with his sister. I didn't want to hog her after all.

Guess that would be the next item on the agenda..

weird [Thursday, April 28th, 2005 @ 8:03pm]

I was standing there, ready to face Darla when all of a sudden, I got the strangest feeling. I couldn't put my finger on it. It was so weird. It was almost as if my heart had like been ripped out of my chest. It didn't really hurt, but it was just this sensation I felt in my chest, like something was being pulled out or something.

I shook my head, bringing myself back to seeing Darla's vampiric face in front of mine. I gave her a good punch and she was down. I walked away and went into my house. I shut the door behind me and looked out the little window at her. I could see her frustration as she got herself up, but I was really wigged out by that feeling I had just had. It was so strange. I wonder where Angel was..I hadn't talked to him in a day or two. I sighed as I stood there and watched her. She gave me a look before strutting away to where ever she came from.

I was about to go upstairs when all of a sudden, I got that feeling I get whenever Angel is around. It's just something that we have towards each other. I ran back to the door, but didn't see him. I frowned, disappointed. I walked back from the door and sat on the step, resting my chin on my knee. I just sat there and thought some.

Where do I belong? [Friday, April 8th, 2005 @ 8:16am]

I had decided to not sleep on the roof for awhile. Sure it was fun and sitting up there when the sun is up and bright sure. But I mean Spike got up there simple with no effort so whats to say that nothing else will come up there to. Plus it does freak out Buffy...sides I can do that already without adding the roof to the list of what gets on Buffy's nerves.

Ever get that feeling where you don't really fit in? I mean okay I know thats stupid. I fit...just sometimes I'm not entirely sure where. Buffy has Angel, Fred seems to have Wesley...if not they should cause they looked cute together at the Christmas dinner. Willow has Tara...okay I'm not saying I want a boyfriend or anything like that, that's not where I am going with this. But it's like everyone has someone...so where do I fit. Gotta love it when your mind just thinks about stuff that you really don't want to think about.

I walked down the hall and headed to my sisters room. I knocked first cause I didn't know if maybe her and Angel had came back in there. I didn't get an answer..and odds are they weren't sleeping. I opened the door slowly and looked inside. The room was empty...see they have each other. I pulled the door closed and walked down the opposite side of the hall.

I was going to go into my room and do...pretty much nothing. Maybe read or surf the net something like that but kept on walking. I stopped at Willow and Tara's room. I am sure they have had plenty of time to spend together. But if not then I would just get in the way. They deserved time together. I had my hand just inches away from the door. My hand in a fist ready to knock. But I lowered it back down. And turned and walked away.

Spin spin spin... [Thursday, April 7th, 2005 @ 4:47pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Drusilla paced around the dark room, then stopped, realizing she had been pacing too much lately. So instead, she began to spin around.

"How long?" she asked the demon, who sat in the corner, the only thing visible of him being his eyes and his claws on his fingers. "How long before Angelus wakes up?" she asked again, stopping her spinning game and kneeling beside the bed where Angel lay, unconscious.

"Soon." The demon muttered. "Angel is still subconsciously fighting Angelus away. But Angelus will win. Right around now," he said, nodding at the bed, where Angel had "mmm"'ed lightly...
