Finally! A (slight) change of scene! I'll have added some paragraph breaks before you see this, but normally each scene gets a paragraph. Which means that right now I've got several paragraphs that are over a page long. Angel and Cordy are strolling down a hallway. We hear music playing, and Angel peers curiously into Cordy's room, where the stereo is still on. Right now it sounds like there's a Doors cover band playing on it. Angel turns back to Cordy and says, "Minstrels!" Hey! Hang on. Angel and Cordy went upstairs. And now they're in Cordy's room. Which was on the ground floor two weeks ago. Maybe when she moved back in this week, she moved everything upstairs? Whatever.
In the room, Angel leans in curiously and examines the stereo. Angel gingerly pokes the speaker with his sword. Cordy finally reaches over and shuts the stereo off. Angel whines, "You stopped the tiny men from singing!" Hee. Angel sits on the bed and looks forward to "a great cup of ale" when this is all over with. Cordy sits next to him and starts putting the moves on him. She rubs his shoulder while he apologizes for acting "womanish." Cordy squeezes his bicep and assures him that he's not at all womanish, then says, "What is it about danger that makes your blood just..." As she turns her head, Angel gazes at her neck and suddenly vamps out. Then he goes back to normal before Cordy looks at him. Angel jumps up and excuses himself as he rushes into the bathroom. He stops in the doorway, and looks at his lack of reflection in the mirror. He turns back and raises one eyebrow in a way that reminds me of Bruce Campbell, for some reason. I pause the tape to giggle, and than laugh some more in anticipation. Unpause. Angel runs back into the room and tells Cordy, "I'm invisible!" Cordy says, "No, you're not." Beat. Angel says, "Oh. Excuse me!" and runs back into the bathroom, shutting the door. Pause. More giggling. That "I'm invisible!" thing kept me laughing for day, honest. Unpause. Angel looks into the mirror and waves, then whimpers slightly at his continued lack of reflection. Flustered, he vamps out and feels his altered face. Devamps. Vamps. Devamps. And so on. Each time we get the creaky noise of bones shifting, or whatever that noise is meant to be.
