BtVS Drabble: Not Like Them

Title: Not Like Them
Fandom: BtVS
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Angel, Buffy, Scoobies.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 30: Almost Human at drabblesoup.
Spoilers/Setting: Season One or early Season Two.
Summary: Being with Buffy makes Angel almost feel human.
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Joss Whedon.

When he’s alone with Buffy, or when they’re hanging out with all her friends, for the first time since he regained his soul Angel feels like he belongs. He’s part of something good after being out in the cold, isolated and alone for so long.

Sometimes he almost forgets that he’s not like them, not a living, breathing human being. He’s a monster, a demon in a stolen body, it’s just that in his case the body’s previous owner is also in residence. Does that make him half human, or half demon?

It hardly matters; he’s still just as dead.

The End
