Willow lay beside Angelus, her finger drawing pictures across his chest.
"What's wrong?" he asked quietly.
She looked at him and smiled. "What are we going to do? Buffy is going to try to kill you. I know that. I can't be in Sunnydale without you."
"The slayer won't kill me."
"If she doesn't, it will mean that you killed her. I can't Angelus. I took away her Angel, I can't let you kill her."
"There is another option, you know?"
"I don't like LA. Besides, she could come here easily. You know Cordelia will tell them all you're back."
"Willow....Willow....Willow....There is more to the world than just LA and Sunnydale."
She raised startled green eyes to his amused dark ones. "Do you mean leave?"
"It's perfect. That way, no one will have to know I'm back. You said yourself that there will be no friendly faces in Sunnydale. I hate LA. Too dreary. I'd love to show you Europe. What do you say Red?"
"What about school?"
"School.....schmool...You can learn by experience. Besides, I will be turning you one day. What good will an education be then?"
Willow had to smile at the arrogance in his voice. "You have it all planned don't you?"
He smirked. "Always."
"OK. Let's do it. I love you Angelus."
"And I love you sweet Willow. Are you sure?"
"Always." she smirked, throwing his words back at him. He really was a bad influence on her.
He laughed. "Great. We can go get your personal
stuff tomorrow and be on the way by dawn. I can't wait to show you
She had to laugh at his joy. At times like this, it was hard to remember that he was Angelus. "Well, where to first, lover?"
He grinned wickedly. "I'm thinking Venice."
"What are you planning?" she asked, recognizing the smile.
"Nothing." he said innocently.
"Don't try that with me Mister. What is in Venice?"
He pulled her in for a kiss. "Not what, who. I have a little unfinished business with my favorite disobedient child. I just need to let him know Daddy's back and not too happy."
Willow felt his mouth on her breast and groaned. (Poor Spike.....)
