Non dimenticar...
Play
Non dimenticar means don`t forget you are my darling
Don`t forget to be
All you mean to me
Non dimenticar my love is like a star, my darling
Shining bright and clear
Just because you`re here
Please do not forget that our lips have met
And I`ve held you tight, dear
Was it dreams ago my heart felt this glow?
Or only just tonight, dear?
Non dimenticar although you travel far, my darling
It`s my heart you own, so I`ll wait alone
Non dimenticar
Se ci separ, se ci allontan
L`ala del destino
Non ne ho colpa, no, e mi sentiro sempre a te vicino
Non dimenticar although you travel far, my darling
It`s my heart you own, so I`ll wait alone
Non dimenticar

Rome...A fashionable hot spot, Eurorock blaring...Early morning...

"Ok, nix one love spell..." Angel nodded to William... "How's she doin'?..."

Just went from adoring beam to full Buf glare...William noted... "Lets move...No, wait..."

She got him...he smiled...

"That's my girl..."

A frown from Angel... "Ok, our girl, poof...Anyway, 'mission accomplished'...And His Benevolence, The Immortal is ready for burial at sea..." Will eyed a confused waiter, now trying to sweep up the sudden mess in the midst of dancers...

"Lets go after her..." Angel looked after the clearly pissed, fast-moving Buffy...

What?...He looked at a hesitating William...

Ummn... "You go, Angel...I'll wait..."

"She'd be glad to see you, Will...Much as I hate to admit it, probably happier to see you than me..."

Sure, sure...But some other time...

"What the hell's wrong with you?..." Angel stared...William sighed...

"Angel...We finished on an 'I love you'...From her...I waited a long time to hear that, even if she didn't really mean it...And kind thought to a dying soldier or no, I can't quite give it up..."

I go say hi...She's pleased to see me...We talk...And within an hour, she's explaining that she'll always care for me...In a way...

Hell, I settled for that...Angel thought, frowning...Still...I can see the point...

"Let me hang on to one lil' romantic fantasy...That Buffy loved me for a moment..." Will smiled sadly...



Well...Angel sighed... "If that's how you feel...Lets head home..."

Dawn and Buffy's apartment...

Angel's reassuring call having brought an end to her anxious wait, a relieved Dawn picked up a buzzing cell phone...

"Buffy?...How'd your date...?"

Oh...

"Well, sis...He did seem a lil' too good to be true..."

No...Ummn...Nothing special goin' on here...Dawn lied...Rather equally relieved if slightly miffed that William had chosen not to return and present himself...

Ummn...What?...

"Buffy, I thought we agreed...No, I didn't throw it out...But...C'mon Buf, it's way past time you...Ok, ok..."

Buffy?...

"Sis, don't cry...Of course he understands...William knows...Wherever he is...That you love him...This was just a spell..." A spell I wish to God had worked...If the damned bastard hadn't been a vamp...Dawn sighed to herself...

"Yeah, yeah...Ok, ok...I'll put it in the wash...You can have it back when you get home...Buf...Try and have a good time for the rest of the evening, ok?...Oh, Buf...C'mon...He'd want you to..."

Stop crying, sis... She hesitated...Pondering...

Well, what the hell...

"All right, listen Buf...Stop crying and come home, cause I got something to tell you...Somethin' important...Yes, it'll be in the wash when you get here..." she closed the phone...

Then sighed and went to the laundry hamper, pulling out a black bra which she threw in the wash...

God, Xander's just as bad with that black underwear...she thought...But at least sis washes her mourning clothes...
