LA...Night...

"She's not coming, William...She knows about you and couldn't care less...Neither for you or poor ole Angel..."

He said nothing...Ignoring the slight blonde, occasionally flickering, form taunting him to continuing swinging at the charging masses before him...The immediate horde to his front staggering back on their own ranks in shocked panic at his furious slashes...That super blood really is everything ole Angel said it was, he noted to himself...She watching...

"You think I'm lying...Where is she, then?...Andrew must've told her...William...It's all pointless...She doesn't care...She never did..."

"Girl..." he sighed... "Whether all you're saying is a lie or no, it doesn't matter...She's not obliged to me...Though ole Angel would have appreciated her showin'...I'm sorry..."

"He'll be past 'sorry' quick enough..." she sneered, indicating the reforming horde before them...

"No..." he shook his head... "I'm sorry for you...To never have the ability to love, let alone unselfishly...It must be terrible, seeing even weak excuses like the Brooding One and me manage it while you watch, unable to feel it in the slightest way, forever...You can never understand that joy, that glory...And so I'm sorry for you..."

A sudden wave of energy radiating outward from her...The horde suddenly flattened before him...

"Teach me..." she begged...
