Poetry Lesson VII: Revenge is a Dish Best Served Cold
Angel stepped into the apartment wearily, throwing his axe to the floor and shaking off his coat. Things between him and the Fang Gang were strained to say the least. Having met Angelus, some of them for the first time, his crew were looking at him through wary eyes and it hurt his soul to see the doubt and fear there. Cordelia had made her feelings perfectly clear on his actions in Sunnydale, and he sighed at the thought of the apologies he would no doubt have to make to his Childe and his Claimed - Spike would not make it easy for him, he knew that well.
As he walked into the bedroom, a strong scent hit him. Looking around, he could see no-one there, but the smell of Spike and Xander was incredibly strong.

S & X
P.S. For fucks sake, don't even think of ever changing that bint - she's scary enough as a human!
For a moment, Angel wondered what surprises Spike and Xander had left for him. Thinking about the sort of irritations they had visited on him previously he made a mental note to discard the majority of his toiletries. Their last prank had been to put hair removing cream in his shampoo, dissolved garlic granules in his aftershave, and superglue in his hairgel. He shuddered to think what they might have done this time.
Unable to stop himself, he sat down on the bed, then turned and gathered two of the pillows to his face.
