After talking to Cordelia, I decided to take a trip back into town. I didn't think Angel would have gone to my house yet, and I wanted a few things. Books, bells, candles. No, actuall, books, clothes and a few physical components for spells.
I want a compatriot in crime, but that didn't mean I was going to trust the new, demonic Cordelia. Come to think of it, I'm not sure that made her much different than she'd been as a teenager. Still, this could be fun, and I was pretty sure my Master would love having another follower. And I was willing to bet (likely my life) that Cordelia would love more power. I know I did.
Making it home in the moments right before dawn, I made sure nothing was waiting for me in the dark. I had to clean up, to look more presentable, and like 'myself'. For some reason, I didn't feel as badly about the baby idea as I had the night before. Perhaps my conscience was dying.
I wondered, just for a moment, why that didn't bother me the way it should.
"Bloody hell," I said to the man in the mirror, "you're not some puffed up, brain sore watcher anymore Ripper. You've found your path again, and it doesn't have to do with rules, or right, or anything else you tried to be. You were a ponce, no better than the sodding piece of offal Wesley when he first arrived. But now...now you're something to be proud of." I laughed, and didn't find it at all odd to be talking to myself.
I packed a few more clothes, several important books, and the spell components that I figured I would need. And then vanished them, sending them to the cave near the campsite, so I'd be able to get them when needed.
"Say good-bye to all of this, and Hello to oblivion," I laughed at the Rocky Horror reference, and locked the door on my way out. The sun shone brightly off the windows of the down town shops, as I strolled along the street, a new day without feeling so badly about the evil things I was asked to do.
Anything could happen today.
