Banner by Me!Demon Hunters: EpilogueBefore dawn, 2 Days Later
There was quite a bit of movement in the Halliwell Manor today, Dana had arrived to help Chris with breakfast while Connor sat with their guests from LA and Wyatt was generally being a pain about having to be up so early on a Sunday.
Before they knew it they were all seated at the table enjoying a delicious breakfast and generally laughing and having a good time. All too soon Wyatt, Connor, Chris and Dana were standing outside the Manor as their guests prepared to leave.
While Wyatt helped Wesley load the bags, Spike was in the car asleep, he had already said his goodbyes. Angel stood next to his son.
“You sure you’re okay here?” Angel asked.
“Yeah, I’m okay here. Besides it’s not like you’re not going to see me again. I’ll be home for Christmas,” Connor said smiling.
“Home?” Angel questioned.
“Yeah, Home. Chris said home is where family is. And we’re family,” Connor stated. Angel hugged his son and was ecstatic when Connor returned the hug.
Angel reluctantly let go of his son and turned to his son’s partner and held his hand out. Chris smiled and shook the offered hand. Connor smiled at the pair and walked over to Chris’s side and wrapped his arm around the taller man’s waist.
“I’ll see you both at Christmas,” Angel said smiling. They turned to Wesley and Fred who were talking to Wyatt.
“The spell on the windows of the car will hold out for the next few days,” Wyatt said to Wesley who nodded. Wyatt had performed a spell which would block the rays of the sun from the car so that they could drive through the day without worrying about two of its occupants bursting into flames.
“Everything ready?” Angel asked.
“Yes. So this is Goodbye. Pleasure meeting you all. No doubt we will see one another again soon,” Wesley said as he shook everyone’s hands before getting behind the wheel. Fred hugged everyone good bye before getting into the car. Angel hugged his son once more and just held him for a moment.
Angel nodded at the others before climbing into the car and next to his Childe who, even in sleep, automatically moved to sprawl onto his Sire to the amusement of everyone else. Angel gave them a wave and they all waved back as Wesley pulled away from the curb and drove off.
They were left standing on the lawn and smiling at one another.
After a moment they all laughed. “I’m going back to bed,” They all said in unison and headed back inside to their respective rooms.
In the distance the sun started to rise covering everything in a beautiful shade of blue, pink and light. Connor and Chris were snuggled in the bed with peaceful smiles on their faces.
9 months later Connor gave birth to a baby boy that weighed 8lbs 2oz at Magic School. The little blessing was named Luke Nathaniel Halliwell. Luke has Connor’s blue and had gotten sunshine blonde locks from his grandmother and uncle.
3 months after Luke was born Chris and Connor had their commitment ceremony at the Hyperion and 1 year after that Angel and the LA gang were in San Francisco celebrating their one year anniversary. That was the night that Wyatt proposed to Dana. She said yes. The wedding was held at Halliwell Manor 4 months later.What have you done today to make you feel proud?
It's never too late to try
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
You could be so many people
If you make that break for freedom
What have you done today to make you feel proud?The End
That’s it’s for Demon Hunters…well until I start the sequel, which should be about 3-5 chapters. The song I use at the end was Proud by Heather Small. I was listening to the Peter Presta Mix when I was writing many chapters of this story. I could see them all dancing at P3 with this song on.
Thanks for the reviews. Let me know what you think of this chapter.
