Cut to: graveyard, night. Pan across trees and graves. We discover Buffy and Angel sitting on the ground under a tree, leaning against it. Buffy has her legs curled under her and leans against Angel's shoulder. They both look at the grave as they talk.
BUFFY: "The funeral was ... (sighs) it was brutal, but it's tomorrow that I'm worried about."
ANGEL: "What's tomorrow?"
BUFFY: "That's exactly what I don't know. Up until now, I ... I've had a road map. Things to do every minute, having to do with Mom."
ANGEL: "Tomorrow the stuff of everyday living resumes."
BUFFY: "And everybody expects me to know how to do it, because ... (sarcastically) I'm so strong."
ANGEL: "You just need some time. I'm sure everybody understands that."
BUFFY: "Time's not the issue. I can stick wood in vampires ... but Mom was the strong one in real
life. She always knew how to make things better ... just what to say."
ANGEL: "Yeah ... you'll find your way. I mean, not all at once, but..."
BUFFY: (shakes her head) "I don't know. I keep thinking about it ... when I found her. If I had just gotten there ten minutes earlier..."
ANGEL: "You said they told you it wouldn't have made a difference."
BUFFY: "They said ... "probably" ... wouldn't have made a difference. The exact thing they said ... was "probably." I haven't told that to anyone."
ANGEL: "Doesn't make it your fault. You couldn't have done anything different."
BUFFY: (annoyed sigh) "I didn't even start CPR until they told me. I fell apart. That's how good I am at being a grownup."
BUFFY: "And it'd be okay if it were just me I had to worry about. But Dawn..."
ANGEL: "Look, it's okay. I know you don't feel like it now, but you are strong, Buffy. You're going to figure this out. And you have people to help you. You don't have to do this alone."
BUFFY: (looks at the sky) "It's going to be light soon."
ANGEL: "I can stay in town as long as you want me."
BUFFY: "How's forever? Does forever work for you?"
She turns her head to look at Angel, sighs and sits up to look him in the face.
BUFFY: (apologetically) "That's a bad idea. I'm seriously needy right now."
ANGEL: "Let me worry about the neediness. I can handle it."
They look at each other, then Buffy leans in and kisses him. They kiss softly for a moment. Then it gets a little more heated and they pull away, both breathing harder.
BUFFY: (looks down) "I told you. (Angel sighs) You better go."
ANGEL: (another sigh) "I'm sorry."
BUFFY: (firmly) "No. I'm so grateful that you came, Angel. I didn't think I was going to be able to make it through the night."
ANGEL: (looks up at the sky) "Well, we still have a few more minutes until I have to go."
She puts her head on his chest and leans against him. He puts his arm around her shoulders.
They sit quietly together.
"And cut! That was perfect! Print it!" The director yelled.
David and Sarah smiled at each other and got up.
"Are we done?" Sarah asked. "Yeah we are done." The director replied. "Great." She smiled happily.
Both Sarah and David walked to their trailers and changed. David waited outside of Sarah's trailer.
"Hi David. What are you doing here? I figured that you left already."
"Nope. I was waiting for you."
"Yeah. I was wondering since this might be our last crossover together and that if its not too late if you would like to have dinner with me tonight?"
"I'd love to. Great." David smiled at her.
"Where would you like to go? Your pick." David asked her.
"Ok. Lets see. How about we go to Claim Jumpers?"
"Fine by me. Lets go. I have my car how about I meet you there?" Sarah said.
"Ok. Meet you there."
They walked into the parking lot walking to their cars. David got into his Benz and was kind of sad that Sarah suggested that she take her own car. Soon they both drove off to the restaurant.
It didnt take them long to get there. Only took them about 15 minutes or so. David had got there a little before she did. Sarah parked next him. David got out of his car and opened Sarahs door for her.
"Thank you. Your Welcome." She smiled at him. "God I love her smile."
"Shall we" David asked holding his arm out. "We shall" She replied wrapping her arm into David's.
They got to the entrance and he then opened the door for her.
"Thank you." They walked in and there were quite a few people there.
"Here sit down, I'll get us a table." "Ok." Sarah found an empty seat and sat waiting for David. David walked over to the counter.
"Table for two." "Ok. The wait might be 10 minutes, is that ok?" "Yeah that's fine. Ok we will page you when your table is ready." "Thank you." He walked away.
David found Sarah staring outside at the sky.
"The table isn't ready yet so well be waiting for about 10 minutes, is that ok?"
"Yeah thats fine." "Good. How bout we sit outside?" "Sure." David held the door open for Sarah while they made their way outside.
"You are such a gentleman." "Thank you." They sat down on an empty bench.
"So how have you been?" David asked.
"I'm doing good, and you?"
"I'm ok. Enjoying the single life." He laughed.
She smiled at him. "Weren't you dating that Jaimie girl?"
"Yeah for a while, but it didn't work out."
"What happened? If you don't mind me asking."
"I wasn't ready to give her the commitment, I didn't love her."
"I know what you mean. I didn't think I was in love with Freddie at first, but now I think I do." Davids' smile fell with the mention of Freddie's name. He couldn't stand him. He hated him really.
"Well I guess you are since you are engaged to him now."
"Yeah I guess I am." He gave her a weak smile.
"Have you guys set a date?"
"No not yet, weve been so busy we havent got the chance."
"Oh." He didn't like asking her questions that involved him in them but they did. Soon they got paged saying their table was ready. They got up and went back inside. They were showed to a small table for two in a corner in the back.
"Good evening. What would you like to drink?" The waitress asked.
"I'll have tropical ice tea." David replied.
"And I'll have the same." "Ok I'll be back with your drinks."
"Thank you." It went quiet for a while.
"So how are Ally and Nick?"
"They are ok. Ally misses Alexis, and Nick got engaged toTressa."
"Yeah I heard about that. I have to come by and say congrats."
"How is Charisma?" She's good.
"And everyone else?"
"Glenn went to Long Beach for a while, Seth is just hanging around, Eliza is spending time on her movies, August is spending time with his girlfriend."
The waitress came back with their drinks, and placed them on the table.
"Are you ready to order?" She asked politely.
"Yes we are." David replied.
"You first." "Ok. I'll have the Pasta Alfredo, and a Caesar Salad."
"Ok. And for you sir? "
"Lets see I'll have the Filey Minon" (s/p? Its steak)
"How would you like it?"
"Medium rare. What would you like on the side?"
"I'll have a bake potato with everything."
"Ok. I'll be right back with your order. Enjoy your meal." She said with a smile.
"So Sarah how do you feel about your show moving to UPN?" David asked after taking a sip of his drink.
"I'm still kinda mad about. I love the WB I don't want to leave. But they got a deal and I got no choice, I want the show to keep going. It's bad enough that I don't get to see you or Charisma, since you guys shoot in Santa Monica."
"I know, I miss seeing you guys to."
"So anything new gonna happen on Angel?"
"I'm not really sure. Iv'e heard rumors that Angel and Fred will have some type of relationship, Lindsay might come back for a few eps, and Julie might come back. But I'm not sure if any of those are true."
"I doubt they are."
"And why do you say that?"
"Ok, since Angel finds out Buffy is dead he will be brooding a lot more, not sure about Lindsay, and Angel said that if Darla ever came back that he would stake her. But things can change."
"Yeah. That's true. But I don't know if they are going to make him brood so much, I think they want him to be more happier or something. What about Buffy? Are they going to reincarnate her?"
"You know what they never told me what they are going to do. "
"Nothing huh. Must be good if they arent telling anyone."
Soon their food had arrived. The waiter had put their food on the table.
"Is there anything else I can get for you?" their waitress asked.
"No were fine, thanks." Sarah replied.
"Enjoy your meal." The waitress said before walking away.
After they had eaten their meals and had a few more ice teas, they continued talking and eating dessert.
"So what are you up to this weekend?"
"I'm not sure why?"
"Well I was wondering if you would like to come for this little barbeque that I'm having at my house I had bought 3 months ago."
"I'll see if Im not doing anything."
"Great. Why this party all of a sudden?"
"Well no one has never been to my house, and I want to see everyone together having a good time."
"Yeah, you can even bring Fr.... Freddie if you want." He said giving a fake smile. He didnt want to say it but he had to. Plus he wanted to see if he was treating Sarah right.
"Really? Well I'll ask him. When is it?"
"Tomorrow, ok." She gave him a sweet smile.
"God she is so beautiful." David thought to himself.
They had shared a few more laughs and more conversations. Freddie had been brought up a few times and if David has anyone in mind of dating. He told her that there was this one girl that he loves. He told her about the day he was going to tell the girl he loves that he loves her but then he found out that she was now dating someone else. He told her that it broke his heart.
"Don't worry you'll find the girl of your dreams."
"I did but I let her slip through my finger and now she loves someone else. I dont think I'll find anyone who loves me and much as I do her."
"I love you David." Sarah thought to herself.
"So tell me again about your love life. I heard that you were dating some girl named Kat? Then now I hear you are dating Jaimie Bergman, and then you told me you guys broke up? I'm confused."
David let out a small laugh.
"Yeah me and Kat dated for a while but things didnt work out. As for Jaimie, we went on a few dates but I couldnt love her like the girl I love." David replied looking at her happily. Sarah couldnt help but smile.
After they had talked, they had decided to take a walk along the beach to catch up some more.
David and Sarah were sitting on the beach.
"So is there anything else new?" Sarah asked.
"Uh, let me see. I went to New York last week. What you do there?"
"I went there to just relax, get out of LA."
"Thats nice. What about you? Anything I dont know about yet?"
"Let me think. No nothing new, everything is normal."
"You sure? Youre not hiding anything that'll hurt my feelings?"
"I'd never hide anything from you David." Except, the fact that she loves him.
"Ok." He smiled at her.
They talked more, whats happen in the pass months, and so on.
David had seen that Sarah was shivering a little so he took off his jacket and put it on Sarah.
"Aren't you going to get cold?"
"No its ok, I got my long sleeve on."
For the time being they looked at the sky and the stars.
"It's getting late we should get going."
"Yeah we should."
David helped Sarah get up and both walked to their cars. While walking Sarah and entwined her arm with David's. It wasn't a long walk to their cars.
David walked Sarah to her car.
"Thank you for tonight." Sarah said turning around from her car.
"It was my pleasure." He said smiling.
"Well I'll see you tomorrow."
"Ok I'll see you then." Then Sarah leaned in for a hug and David replied happily. It was a nice long, warm hug.
"Once again thanks."
"No problem we should do it again sometime."
"Yeah we should. Oh that reminds I don't have your address."
"Oh yeah. Ok hold on a sec."
David walked over to his car and took out a piece of paper and wrote his address. He then walked back to Sarah. "Here you go."
"Thank you. What time should I be there?"
"Around 1 is fine."
"Ok. Well see you tomorrow."
"David gave her a kiss on the cheek."
"I will. "Sarah got into her car, waved at David then drove off. David waited till her car was out of sight before he drove on home.
He got into his car and drove off himself. It took him about 30 min to get home. He got out and went inside his house. He went straight to the kitchen to get something to drink. He opened the fridge and got a bottle of water. He got it and went for the couch. He sat down and played his messages.
"You have 5 messages:"
Message 1. "David its CC, I just wanted to know if you wanted anything for me to bring tomorrow. So call me when you can. Bye."
Message 2. "Hi David its me Jaimie."
"Oh god." David complained.
"I just wanted to say hi and that we should get together sometime, k. call me."
Message 3. "David its Beth. Just calling to see how my baby brother is doing. So give me a call. Oh and your nephew says hi. Bye."
Message 4. "David its me Jamie again. Where are you? Call me."
Message 5. "David where are you? This is my third message. Its Jamie. Call me k."
"End of Messages."
"Geez wont that girl ever stop?" David said out loud.
He had deleted all the messages and headed to his room. Went into the bathroom brushed his teeth and took off his clothes leaving him in only boxers. Slipped under the sheets still thinking about the night he had just had with Sarah and then fell asleep thinking about her.
While Sarah was driving home she couldnt stop thinking about David. Just thinking about him gave her shivers. She missed spending time with him. Then she started thinking to herself. She kept telling herself that she had Freddie. But is that what she really wants? In her head she kept talking about David then made herself come back to reality where she had Freddie.
"Oh but David is so, he is so, so, the one for me. Oh where did that come from? I have Freddie. What am I saying? Ive always loved David; since I first met him I knew I loved him. But what does he feel about me? Sure weve flirted quite a lot but did it mean anything? Was there anything at all? Well I guess Ill never know since Im engaged. But you never know something could happen, Ill just have to wait and see.
It didn't take long for Sarah to get home. She parked her car and went inside. Freddie was on the couch watching TV.
"Hey baby, its late. Where were you?" Freddie asked.
"Oh me and some friends went out." She lied. She knew that he has a tendency to get really jealous.
"I'm tired Im gonna go sleep now."
"Ok, I'll be there in a minute."
"Ok. Oh that reminds me David invited us to his house for a lil barbeque around 1 tomorrow."
"Really. That'll be fun." He said trying to sound excited.
"Yeah you'll have fun." Sarah then walked off to her room.
Sarah didnt want to tell Freddie that she was really with David. She wanted to keep that night to herself. Freddie turned off the TV and walked into the room thinking to himself that tomorrow is going to be so much fun.
Or is it? Its Davids party and they have a lot of chemistry together. Then saying to himself that he should relax cause nothing will happen between them since they are engaged. But then started thinking that he should keep an eye just in case. Sarah walked out of the bathroom and lay down on the bed.
"Night Freddie." "Night baby." He replied still thinking to himself.
