It was on a warm Summer night that a beautiful maiden
Named Cordelia Chase was sitting all alone in
The offices of Angel Investigations and began to wonder
How would she be able to help her
Newfound best friend get out of the hell that he was in.
She had nearly allowed herself to call Buffy Summers
For some help,only to have her
Realize that they had a rivalry going on while they
Were students in their high school days
And calling Buffy would be a bad idea for her.
That was before she had let out a yawn,placed her
Head on the desk and fallen into peaceful slumber,
Only to have someone place a gentle hand
On her cheek which had felt so grand
Enough to awaken Cordelia from her
Little nap and discover that she had somehow been
Placed in a time back when
Angel was only a human being known as Liam and
Had not been tricked into joining the vampire band
By the fangs of Darla and her horde of sin.
And while she was examining the gown that she
Was wearing,Cordelia had realized that Angel had to be
The one who had woken her
From that one moment of peaceful slumber
Before she had turned around and saw with wonderous glee
That Angel was standing in front of her
And being more handsome than ever.
But just as she was about to place
Her hand on his face
And plant a kiss of true romantic pleasure
On his lips,Angel had grabbed Cordelia by the wrist,spun
Her around and began blowing his warm as a new day sun
Breath on the nape of her neck with his hands on
Her dress just before Darla had barged in on
Them with a sinister smile that would ruin any type of fun.
"What are you waiting for,Angelus?",that was what Darla had
Asked Angel,who had also became devilishly glad
Before puting his hand on Cordelia's forehead
And transforming into the creature of nightly dread.
And when Cordelia hads seen his face,she had became more than sad.
As a matter of fact,
She had discovered that Angel had already came into contact
With Darla and her deadly vampirish disease
And was about to release
His razor sharp fangs on her flesh upon contact
Which had caused Cordelia to look at Angel with pure fright
In her eyes and try to lure him out of the darkness and towards the light.
But she was interupted by the two bloodsuckers
Who had ripped open her
Flesh and drank every last drop of blood on that night,
Only to have someone place a gentle hand on her cheek
Which had made her wake up from that dream and shriek
To the top of her lungs before someone had put his hands
On her shoulders and
Said,"Cordelia,It's okay!I've only been gone for a week!"
And when she had noticed that a more human looking
Angel was sitting
Right in front of her,a relieved Cordelia had
Wrapped her arms around Angel,let tears run out of her sad
Eyes and apologized for what Darla had been forcing
Him to become those years before.
"That was Angelus back then.Now,I'm Angel and have a chore
Of protecting innocent human beings
To do.",That was what Angel had said before sitting
At his desk and hope that ot would not be like Nineteen Ninety Four.
