Buffy was sitting at the Bronze when the incredible happened.
"Angel?" she asked questioningly.
"Yeah," he said, "I realized that I had to come see you…
so I got into the car and drove. I’m not going to stay, but I
just had to see you once. I wanted to let you know that Spike
came to LA for the Ring of Amarra.
"He did?" she smiled at him, "I assume he lost."
"Yeah. Uh, Buffy, he did say something about you though."
Buffy got nervous. "Really? What did he tell you?"
"He mentioned that you and… someone else… a guy…"
"Parker?" Buffy realized the words she just let out of her
mouth and cringed. Looking at Angel, she realized that she should
tell him the truth. "Yeah, Parker. We, uh, well… I slept with
him. I guess he didn’t get truly happy though, ‘cause he decided
to get gone… from my life. Should’ve learned my lesson." Looking
at Angel she said hurriedly, "Not that you were my lesson! I just
meant that - "
Angel smiled, "It’s OK, I know what you meant." He cupped
her face in his hands and tenderly kissed her forehead. "Do you
know where Parker is?"
Buffy spoke before she thought again, "Yup, he’s flirting
with that girl over there at the pool table."
Angel smiled his thanks as he got up and walked over to the
pool table. He spotted the boy who looked surprisingly like Xander.
Except Xander would never do that to Buffy. "Hello Parker."
Parker looked up at the handsome vampire. "Can I help you with
"In fact, you can. I would like to talk with you outside for
Parker shrugged his shoulders and turned to the girl next to
him, "I’ll be back in a minute Kelli. Would you do me a favor
and miss me? My ego’s kinda fragile." Kelli smiled and nodded.
Parker followed Angel into the alley. Angel turned to the boy
as soon the door shut and said, "You know, there’s a girl I wish
would miss me. I know she does and that at least a small part
of her still loves me. But most importantly, I love her more than
I have ever loved anyone. You really never should have messed
Parker started to feel intimidated, "Hey man, I thought she was
single, and it was just a good time. You know how it is with chicks."
Angel gave him a blank look, "She’s single and can do whatever
she wants, but no one uses her and the only chick is you. At least,
you will be by the end of the night, or I’ve failed."
And with that, he lashed out at Parker with a left hook. Parker’s
head flew back and blood spurted out his mouth and nose. Angel
let fly with a sharp kick to the groin that left the boy in the
fetal position. Angel picked him up by the hair and took him head
first into the brick wall. Parker tried to struggle and fight
back by throwing a punch at Angel’s face. Angel grabbed his fist
and with a crunch, broke every finger in the fist.
"That’s for touching her…" He grasped his arm and broke it with
one swift movement,
"And that’s for thinking that you were worthy enough to hold her…"
Angel put Parker’s back on the wall and with a head butt, broke
"For kissing her…" He kneed Parker in the groin again so hard
that there was an audible crunch . "For having sex with her…"
And then her threw Parker on the ground and stepped on his legs,
"Of course, your real mistake was walking out on her." Angel stepped
back and surveyed the damage, "You’ll live but I hope you’ve learned
your lesson. You really should treat people nicer." And with that,
he walked to his car and drove back to LA After all, he got what
he came for. No matter how far away he was from Buffy, he would
always champion her honor.
