Chapter Two

Chapter Two

Disclaimer: see Chapter One

After convincing Jack that vampirism probably wasn't the ideal form of immortality, Angel and Cordelia had fled to Giles' cabin. Cordelia was currently in deep conversation with the former Watcher, discussing her new life as a higher power, while Angel watched Anya and Jack on the dock below as she attempted to convince him that, 'no, he really didn't need to come with her to defeat the First'. Tuning out the pair below, Angel finally voiced the question he'd wanted to ask since first arriving.

"How did you wind up a pirate?"

Giles looked up with a distracted, "Hm?

"Oh, when the Hellmouth, um..."

"Went nuclear?" Cordelia supplied.

"Well, yes," he grinned at her. "We actually arrived on a beach in Florida where Jack had just beached a dinghy left to him by those who had taken his ship. This ship, actually. He was searching for the Fountain of Youth."

That piqued Angel's interest.

"Did he find it?"

"No, we were forced to take to the open ocean before a proper search could be conducted."

There was a story behind that, they could tell, but before Angel could push for more Anya entered the cabin, a slight frown marring her pretty features.

"Is everything all right, Anya?" Giles asked.

She looked up and pasted on a smile.

"Oh, I'm sure he'll be fine," she said. "Jack's just pouting about not being able to go. He's worried about me, even if he doesn't admit it, but the sooner we go the sooner we can get back. So. Are we leaving now?"

Giles looked to Angel who shrugged and turned to Cordelia.

"Alright," she said, standing. "What say we blow this popsicle stand?"
