Buffy called him, not sure if she should, and yet… who else could she confide in? Her friends were doing everything they could to help with all the minutiae, there was so much involved in planning a funeral, but they were grieving too, in their own ways, and Buffy needed someone to be strong, just for her. She only knew one person who could do that.
He didn’t let her down.
Angel came, as she’d known he would, and she poured out all her doubts and fears, leaned on him as he held her, and drew strength from his love.
