“Ancient Languages….why Ancient Languages?....Why not Spanish? Or French, German, Russian or hell even Latin?”
A middle aged man held of a thick text and asked his son, a young man whose shoulder length hair fell in is face as he shook his head and smiled. Blue eyes rolled and the young man bounced several large texts in the air with an ease that was unexpected for his build.
“I took those before remember? And Ancient Languages sounds cool, you never know when you may need to know Ancient Sumerian, it may come in handy.”
The man raised an eyebrow.
“I don’t think its going to save the world….Demonic Studies? The Physics of Trans-dimension Portals and Travels? Are you taking any normal classes Connor?”
Connor dusted off his dark jeans and straightened his Flogging Molly t-shirt.
“Yes Dad, Advanced English, and math, plus those courses all apply to my degree; I just think they will be far more interesting and even Angel approved of them.”
The man frowned at the name.
“Son, I know you look up to him, and you should, he is your biological father, and he loved you enough to give you a better life with us, I will always be in debt to him, but…..he just feels off….”
Connor sighed and looked his father in the eye.
“I Know he can Dad, but trust me, he really is a good guy, I mean look what he did with that corrupted law firm-“
“He blew it up! As if it never existed – just a hole-“
“Dad Please! He did the right thing!”
“I know, I know you think so son, I just…” Mr. Reilly rubbed his forehead. “Maybe we should have left you to stay with him over the summer, ever since then, it seems you’ve changed….”
“I haven’t changed Dad, I’m finally just being myself, I finally feel like I’m being who I am, not just a good student and athletic, the all American Boy, but Connor….just Connor.”
“Son, you know your genetics, your blood doesn’t dictate who you are-“
“But its part of the equation, I know, we had this talk when we found out…now can we please purchase these books and grab a bit to eat? I’m still a growing boy you know…”
“Alright but your buying”
“Sure, oh hey can I borrow your credit card” Connor said with a smirk and moved just in time to miss his father’s hand as it reached for his head. “Hey watch the hair…”
Authors note: Ok so this is my first Angel/Buffy Fanfic. I didn’t actually watch the last episodes of Angel do to work issues, but I’ve read fanfics and summaries and I remember something blowing up so if I’m wrong please let me know so I can fix it. ^_^ This is a Connor/Dawn story, because I think there is so much more to those two and that had they met it would have been love at first sight. I started out with Connor cuz he’s a Stanford first and then it will be Dawn’s turn ^_^
