Summary: Angel has no idea what’s going on, but Buffy is there so it has to be okay, right?
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Joss Whedon.
Angel’s confused. What is this place? Why’s he here? And why’s he holding a sword? Were he and Buffy battling some kind of demon? Why can’t he remember? Although…
Some demons can mess with memories; maybe that’s what happened. At least Buffy seems unaffected, and really that’s all that matters. He’s sure she’ll explain, but right now she seems more worried for him, and sad, like her heart’s breaking. He wants to tell her it’s okay, he doesn’t know what’s going on but he hasn’t forgotten her.
“Close your eyes,” she tells him, and he loves her, so he does.
