Home In Sunnydale


Well, here's another mess that I got myself into. I'm stuck here in some dimension where I turn into some crazy monster and I run into crazy girls in caves. All I can say is that I'm glad that we got Cordy out of her "palace". She had to leave some guy behind that was a Gro..Grew.. well, something that sounded like a slug. After we all tore her away from her new found love, we started making our way back to car that was hopefully still hidden in the bushes.

We took a short pit stop and picked up a new friend to take home with us. She was a girl that we had been looking for back in LA and ended up here in Pylea finding her in a cave. Turns out she'd been here for five years or so living as a slave. Winifred, or "Fred" was a little.. interesting, crazy even. Well, who wouldn't be after spending five years as a slave and living in a cave? I was borderline crazy whenever I lived in alleys and ate vermin.

Fred and I arrived at the scene just as everyone had finished clearing the car of the branches. She somewhat clung to my arm which I thought was a little odd. I helped her into the car and we all stood around for a little bit. I looked up at the sky and saw the sun.. or suns. I was going to miss this being able to stand out in the open sunlight. Why couldn't our dimension be like this? Everyone made their way into the car and I looked around the area just to make sure everything was alright and that we'd be able to leave as easily as possible.

Just as I was about to get inside the car I saw a flash and heard a crackling sound. I fell forward hitting my head on the car door and fell to the ground. I sat up slowly and made my way to my knees. I could hear Fred in the background asking if I was alright.

"Angel? You alright? Cause if you're not I'm not sure if I wanna take this fun trip all the way back to LA wi--"

I decided to interrupt her. Who knows how long she might go on if no one does. "Fred, I'm alright. I just hit my head." I stood up and looked around. "What was that?" It was almost like a portal had opened up or something. I looked around some more, but didn't see anything. Frowning, I walked a few steps away from the car, trying to find anything that might have come out of a portal.

[Open to Buffy, Fred, Cordy, or anybody currently in Pylea]

I pouted the whole way there, I didn't want leave Gru behind not when there was so much we had in common. Plus there was always the fact he worship me, I was/am his Princess. A sharp pain jabbed at my side as the crown had started to slip out of my shirt. I hoped Angel didn't notice all the souvenirs I had decided to bring along.

He was making me leave my kingdom so he could atleast let me bring back all the jewels. I followed behind the both of them, Fred was so close to Angel I didn't know if I could make my way through them. It was nice seeing her smile, the first time I had met her that girl was far from the smiling.

I sat in the car as I heard some weird crackling noise. I didn't think much of it until Angel was sent flying, hitting his big head and all. I immediately got up, along with fred, to see if he was alright. I kept quiet as I listened to the both of them, after watching Angel get up I knew he was fine and that maybe I could possibly chime in along with Fred.

"Yeah I agree with Fred we shouldn't go back, when there is so many people in need here-"

I stopped as I began to hear a couple more noises above my head. My grip tightened on the crown, if I was going to be sent flying I was taking it with me.

I don't know where I am. I heard a loud noise and now I'm lying on my back. I open my eyes, and I shield them from the very bright sun. I thought I was dead. But, looking around, I see people walking around. No one seems to have noticed me just falling from the sky. Or, where ever I came from. I don't understand. I had died, saving the world. But, where was I now? This definitley was not Heaven. I'm not even sure if I was in Heaven before I came here. How did I get here is my big pondering question.

I started to walk, and I saw people going about their business. I just noticed, my head really hurts. I might still be dead. I am so lost.

I stop and I turn around. Just to see my surroundings, when I see a car up ahead. I don't know, I might be crazy, but If I'm not mistaken, thats Cordy standing right over there next to it. I wiped my eyes to see if it was just an illusion. But I really don't think it is. I started walking towards the car, when I noticed others there too. Then I stopped dead in my tracks. I put my hand up to my mouth and gasped as I saw who was also standing there with the look a-like Cordy. How could it be? Where the hell was I?

It was Angel.

I loved walking back to the car with Angel. Every now and then I'd look up at him and give him a huge smile. I got excited whenever he'd look down at me and smile back.

As we made it back to the car I smiled. We were going back to my home where there were taco stands on ever corner, forks and spoons.. and sporks, I wonder if they still have sprorks, I never asked Angel about the sporks. Angel helped me inside the car and I again gave him a big smile. When I was about to open my mouth about sporks I heard a loud noise that sounded like it was coming from above us. I jumped and latched onto Cordelia who was sitting beside me. Frowning, I rubbed my side when something pointy poked into my ribs. Still, I held onto her arm.

"Angel? You alright? Cause if you're not I'm not sure if I wanna take this fun trip all the way back to LA wi--"

"Fred, I'm alright. I just hit my head. What was that?"

I looked down over the car door at Angel. He stood and looked around. I started to get a little scared because Angel, my hero, looked as if he was a little nervous too.

"Yeah I agree with Fred we shouldn't go back, when there is so many people in need here-"

Snorting just a little, I looked over at Cordelia. "People in need? What about those mean ones who tried to kill me.. and y--" Suddenly I sat up from the car seat and looked off in the distance. Raising my hand, I pointed up at a girl. The girl turned to face us and looked confused. She started walking towards us and I crouched back in the car seat a little.

Still pointing, I looked to Angel. "A-Angel? Who's that dirty-looking girl coming towards us?"

Still looking around, I heard Cordy chime in with Fred.

"Yeah I agree with Fred we shouldn't go back, when there is so many people in need here-"

Shaking my head wearily, I turned to Cordy. "No, Cordy. You can't go back to your throne and your puppy-man who calls you his 'princess'." I started to say something else, but I heard Fred.

"People in need? What about those mean ones who tried to kill me.. and you--.. A-Angel? Who's that dirty-looking girl coming towards us?"

Turning around quickly, I followed Fred's finger and her gaze and looked to see a young girl slowly walking towards all of us. As I turned around, she stopped suddenly and raised her hand to her mouth. The girl looked like she'd been through hell. I took a couple steps towards her. "H-hello?"

Squinting my eyes, I finally realized who the girl was. Buffy. I stopped in my tracks. "Buffy? W-why are you.. are you okay?" I walked quickly over to her and looked at her. Something had happened to her that I didn't know about. The last I had talked to her was after her mom died. That wasn't that long ago, but what could have happened since then. Why was she here in Pylea? I placed a gentle hand on her arm.

As Angel came up to me, I tried to make sense of all of this. He placed his hand on my shoulder, but I'm still sort of jumpy. I looked up at him about to cry because I was so confused and lost. I wasn't sure if I could talk, but I tried anyway.

"A-angel? I was dead. Are you dead too? Well yeah, but I actually died. And now I'm here. Where is here?" I knew I probably wasn't making any sense, but I didn't know what to say. How could I make him understand? We needed to get out of here and talk. I miss everyone back home. But how had I gotten here? A spell, yeah. But by who? I am soo confused.

"Angel, can we get out of here? I just want to go home." I said, starting to cry. I layed my head down on his shoulder and just cried. I couldn't help it anymore.

Buffy wasn't herself at all. She even jumped when I put a hand on her shoulder. When she looked up at me I saw tears forming in her eyes. When she spoke her voice sounded groggy, confused, and afraid.

"A-angel? I was dead. Are you dead too? Well yeah, but I actually died. And now I'm here. Where is here?"

DEAD? How in the hell.. Now I was starting to get confused by all of this. "Buffy.. you.. how did you?.. Yes, you're here. I'm here. We're in.. another dimension.. Pylea."

All kinds of thoughts started running through my mind. There was rage for the thing that did this to her, anger at myself for not being there to save her, confusion on why she was here if she was supposed to be dead.. yes, many thoughts. Had she really died since she was here? Or.. how long had she been dead? I'm guessing if she had really died that something had brought her back. A spell? Had to be.

"Angel, can we get out of here? I just want to go home."

She looked at me again and I saw a few tears fall down her cheeks. She laid her head on my shoulder and then I pulled her into a hug, wrapping my arms around her. I placed one hand on the back of her head, stroking her hair at times. "Yes, Buffy. That's exactly where we're headed.. home."

Talk would come later. Right now I wanted to keep her safe, plus we all needed to get back home. I lifted my eyes and looked up at everyone still standing over by the car. Gunn, Lorne, and especially Fred looked completly confused while Wes and Cordy looked utterly shocked by the whole thing.

One minute Princess of all the Pylea land and the next staring at good ole' Buffy. When Angel started to walk over to her I kept quiet, I was sure my mouth wasn't needed, or wasn't really wanted for that matter. I stood close to them and tried to figure what exactly was going on and why she had been sent here of all places.

"A-angel? I was dead. Are you dead too? Well yeah, but I actually died. And now I'm here. Where is here?"

Dead? My face could have looked like a deer in the headlights. I put my hand over my mouth the stop myself from saying anything inappropriate. Anything is possible and if her death has sent her here. I shrugged myself from thinking about it too much.

She looked so scared and I didn't know what to do. I've never seen her scared, not in the years that I had known her. I tried to stay close to Fred, this probably wasn't something she'd know alot about and I couldn't probably fill her in, in five seconds.

"Yes, Buffy. That's exactly where we're headed.. home."

I could barely make out what they were saying but I got the slightest hench that we were going back. Questions came into my head but I knew it wasn't the time. I headed back to the car but before I got in I looked over at them and back at Fred..

"We better make some more room in the backseat.."

I again look back at Angel, hoping to get something from his face anything if possible. Of course I could only tell he was worried of course he would be but I didn't know if there was something I could do to make things more comfortable for everyone. I turn to him one more time,

"Is she okay?"

Angel walked over to the girl and he seemed to know her from somewhere. What was the name he called her?.. Buffy? Well, that's not a name you hear everyday, is it? I looked at Cordelia who seemed to be holding in her shock. Did everyone know this girl who seemed to pop out of the sky? Popping out of the sky.. that seemed to be happening a lot lately.

This girl had been dead?.. and now she's back? I don't think I could think of an answer that solved that problem in my head. She was dead.. but now she isn't? I looked over to Wesley and he seemed to know who this girl was as well, but when I looked at Lorne and Charles they seemed just as confused as I did.

I watched Angel hug Buffy and I frowned. I had no idea what was going on. I wanted to ask Cordelia hundreds of questions, but I kept my mouth shut for now.

We better make some more room in the backseat.."

I took it that she was coming back to LA with us. We were definatley going to be sitting tight in the car for the ride home. I finally looked at Cordelia and tapped on her arm. "Hey.. who's that? And why is Angel hugging her?" I kept my voice low, not wanting Angel to hear me or the Buffy girl for that matter.

"Is she okay?"

After holding her for a minute or two I heard Cordy. I looked up at her and nodded slightly. Or at least I hope she's alright. Slowly, I withdrew and stepped back only slightly from her. There was still confusion in her eyes, but she didn't seem quite as scared as she did at first.

I looked again at Buffy. Lifting a hand, I smoothed out her now darker hair and brushed a tear away from her cheek. Helping her, we headed over towards the car.

I let Angel lead me to the car and I slowly got in, ending up sitting next to Cordelia and some other girl I didn't know. I just sat there, eventually turning to Cordy and smiling slightly to her.

I sure hope we were going home. Home is the only place I want to be right now.. with my friends and family.

The car started and we were off.

Buffy sat down between Fred and Cordy and I went to the front of the car and sat in the driver's seat. I turned around and looked at everyone. There was Cordy looking sympathetically over at Buffy, and Fred.. well, looking at Buffy like she was some new species or something. I could help smile to myself. Fred was going to be quite an addition to the group.

"Alright guys, here we go." Turning back around, I looked over to Wesley who started chanting or something. Looking forward, I saw a portal start to open and I braced myself as I put the car in gear.

Fighting the urge to close my eyes, I pressed my foot on the gas and the car sped towards the portal. We ran into the portal and all I saw was a bright light that swirled around us.

Just like that, I could see something in the distance. It got closer and closer when finally it was right infront of us. We left what was left of the portal and we found ourselves in the middle of Caritas. Tables and chairs flew everywhere and we slammed into the bar.

"Uh.. woops?" I turned around in the seat and looked at everyone. "You guys alright?" I looked at Buffy to make she she was fine after looking at everyone else.

I sat there in the car, bracing for what would come next. I was still very jumpy, so when the car went through the portal, you can I wasn't prepared for the impact it had.

We slammed into the bar at this restuarant I guess. I got up, after sort of stmbling from the lading and smiled to Angel when he looked to make sure I was alright.

I walked up to him and looked around, through blurry eyes. I could just make out where we were.

"So..what now? Are we back in Sunnydale?" I asked, quietly.

"So..what now? Are we back in Sunnydale?"

Everyone got out of the car and Buffy stood at my side. I placed a hand around her and gave her a reassuring smile then shook my head.

"No, not Sunnydale. We're in L.A. right now, but as soon as everything gets settled I'm gonna take you back, alright?"

I looked around at everyone again making sure that they were alright. Fred gave me a nod and I told her that it was probably best if she stayed close to Cordy until we got back to the hotel.

We made our way through the rubble around us, and finally back outside. Looking up at the sky, it was dark and the moon barely was visable through the clouds. I looked at everyone and nodded.

"Let's get back to the hotel so we can get everything back to normal." I turned back to Buffy as we walked. "Do you want me to call Willow or Xander when we get back?"

As we were walking, I looked around L.A., trying to get more comfortable with it I guess. I hadn't been here in a while. Before Sunnydale. I looked back at Angel. I paused to think before answering. I still don't know how or why I came back, so I'm guessing Will and Xander won't expect Angel to just call out of nowhere saying that I'm back from the dead. They probably wouldn't believe him, well Xander wouldn't. Maybe Willow would..I don't know.

"Uh..yeah I guess so. But, their going to be weired out. I still don't even know how or why I'm back." I sighed. What was I going to do now that I was back? Get back to life like it was before? I'm so confused, and very tired.

I turned to Fred and gently helped her out of the vehicle.

I hugged Cordelia out of delight to be home again and then immediately reassumed my normal stoic attitude towards life.

After our tumoltous journey through the portal I felt the old sense of belonging that I had return to me. We were now in LA where I could pursue my life's work. Which was, specializing in obsessing over the fight against evil. And of course I foresaw that I would be sacrificing a great deal of my social life. After all- we had to. Our work demanded it.

Now that I was out on solid ground after that journey through the portal I felt revitalized. As if I was stronger. Or perhaps it was merely the side affect of being on the same world that I had been born into.

I think I might have made permanent marks in my skin from my fingernails. As we came out of the portal, I caught myself grabbing onto the 'back from the dead' girl who sat next to me. As I looked around, I saw that we were inside some building. It almost looked like some club. I think that's what they were called anyway.

Wesley helped me out of the car and I smiled just a little back up at him. We stood around for just a little while and the green one looked a little.. upset about the fact where we came out of the portal.

We walked outside and onto the streets of what I assumed was Los Angeles.. or something like that. I clutched onto Cordelia's arm, squeezing it tighter everytime we passed someone on the street who gave me a look. Finally, we arrived at some building that everyone seemed to recognize. It was a big building and had a huge lobby when I walked inside.

Giggling, I grinned and looked over at Cordelia who gave me some sort of look. The grin was partly gone from my face then. Looking for Angel, I noticed him as he walked up the stairs with that girl. Frowning, I turned back to Wesley and Cordelia.

"So.. do y'all live here or somethin?"

"Uh..yeah I guess so. But, their going to be weired out. I still don't even know how or why I'm back."

Nodding, I understood what she meant. They had no idea that their best friend and sister had just come back from the dead.. again, after a long three months.

"I'm sure they'll probably be a little.. confused, but I know they'll get over that soon enough once they let you're being alive again set in."

She was so confused, and.. there was something else about her that I couldn't place. It almost seemed as if it was painful to be back. I wondered where exactly she'd been for the past three months that she was gone. I know that when I was dead, I spent a fun hundreds of years in hell. She didn't act at all the way I did when I was brought back. Something was different. But, of course, that would come later.

"I know you're confused. But we'll figure this out. I promise."

I tried to give her a reasuring smile as we arrived at the hotel. Most everyone stayed in the lobby as I took Buffy upstairs. We arrived at my room and I took her inside, helping her into the bed. She looked so tired, and I knew she needed rest. Finding out that you just came back to life for the second time after being who knows where and actually being in another dimension? That can't be good for the mind.

Pulling up a chair, I sat by her until she fell asleep, and watched her sleep for a little while. After a while, I went back downstairs to make a phone call that I knew wouldn't be that easy.
