Hunger gnaws at Angel, but it’s not blood he craves. Buffy’s provided the sustenance he needs; pig’s blood, not human, but it satisfies his appetite well enough, even cold and not as fresh as he’d like.
He doesn’t need food, what he wants is something more personal, and more forbidden. He longs to feel the warmth of the girl he still loves, yearns to be close to her, show her how much she means to him.
These days he’s always cold, and perhaps that’s best, because Buffy lights an unquenchable fire inside him. He can’t risk losing his soul again.
