Perfume

A chill breeze slithers through Sunnydale Cemetary; the perfume of grief lies thick in Angel’s nose and mouth as his eyes sketch Buffy standing watch over her mother’s freshly-dug grave. 

Underneath the top note rests a base note of blood – Slayer’s blood, thrumming beneath warm skin.  

Closing his eyes, he tastes it, iron-sharp and laden with power.  She had given it to him as freely as she had once given him that sunny smile.  His body grows heavy with remembrance and Angel steps toward Buffy, filled with equal parts sadness, shame, and hunger.  

He can never forget what he is.

I'm so pleased that your new fic-writing explorations have included shows I'm actually familiar with. *rubs hands together with glee*

Thank you for the trip down memory lane with this one too; again, it's been years since I saw the episode but I can picture the scene in question so clearly from your writing. *applauds*

Really great job with the POV in this scene. From what I remember, it was focused more on Buffy in the show but it's intriguing to see it from Angel's side. Wonderful.

(Now, if I can just persuade you to write some Spangel slash... *g*)
