My fingers moved slowly over the skin of her stomach before finally I stopped and opened my eyes. It was Dawn ... still and she was here. Movin' away slowly, I laid on my back and grabbed a fag, lightin' it up and smokin' it as I looked toward the window. The sun was almost fadin' away, I could see it through the curtains and I was sure that we would be leavin' again. I guess goin' to London since I'm this bloody relic that she's thinkin' that I am. Whatever that is, don't much care, least I'm not alone now. Pushin' myself out of the bed, I gave her another look before walkin' around to the other side. She looked asleep and by the sound of her heartbeat, she was. Took another pull from my smoke before crushin' it out and openin' up the door, seein' my clothes there folded and such. Least I had some clean clothes.
Pullin' them on after I closed the door, I sat on the edge of the bed and felt her movin' around. Turnin' around when I put on my boots, I looked her over before layin' on the bed behind her and grinnin'. "Wake up Nib, nighttime, need some blood," I whispered and squeezed her tight before lettin' go and gettin' off the bed. Movin' my fingers around in my hair for a bit, I waited for her to get up. Needed blood, needed more fags and there were also some other things I needed.
Needed to talk to Buffy. Needed to make sure she was alright and all that rot, specially since what we parted on. Didn't mean it, didn't ... want it get that far, but it's too late and that's what happened. Now it was ... years later and I didn't even know what day it was, I didn't know what month, didn't know anythin'.
Angel was dead and gone and now it was just me left. Wondered for a moment if Dru was here or not, could see her, but what good would I be to her? Had a soul, wonder if she'd take me in anyway. Could use a bit of my dark princess ... and some of my light, but the light was somethin' that I couldn't have anymore. She wouldn't want me after what I did to her.
Turned my head and saw Dawn gettin' up as I stood there, watchin' her.
"Gonna go up to the store, be back in a jif," I said and tilted my head. "Need anythin'?" Course I didn't have any money, but there was no harm in pilchin' it was there? Least I wasn't killin' anyone.
