Angela had just finished her last final and was humming "Silver Bells" as she packed for her Christmas trip home. Out of habit, she called into her Fandom voicemail -- and the smile slowly died on her face as she listened to Anakin's message.

So. Angelus was back, and she was ten years away and useless. Even though she hadn't kept her notes from that horrible time two years ago -- she had wanted to block it from her mind -- she hoped that, if she just went back to Fandom, she'd be able to help *somehow.*

After calling him back, she made two other phone calls, then logged into Portalocity to see how fast she could get to Fandom.

It was late Friday evening in Hong Kong when Parker got Angela's message. She went out on the balcony of her hotel room, and watched the ships come in to harbor while the phone rang.

"Hey, it's me. You heard, hunh?"

"I called Isabel just to talk, and she told me. Otherwise, I think she would've kept it to herself until everything was fixed. I think she thought I'd have another bleeding ulcer, as it was." Parker shook her head, leaning against the balustrade. "Who called you, and how much do you already know?

"No one's dead," this time hung over the conversation without being uttered. "But yeah, Isabel said a few people got hurt and bit, some people got their minds messed with, and Willow's unconscious in the clinic. Which is probably why they haven't already done the curse. Give Angelus credit for not being completely stupid." She rubbed the tips of her fingers against her temples, trying to unclench her jaw. "I remember some of the curse? But not much, it was in Latin, and you know how I suck at magic. And there was that damn Thesulah stone that I had to back-order. It went all glowy when Tara finished it." She dropped her fingers to the railing, gripping it tightly. "I talked to Logan, too."

"It really, really sucks," Parker agreed. "And Logan's being stoic. But sober. Seems to be handling it okay, but no bets on how long that'll last. He talked to Angelus in jail, I can't think that was any kind of fun." Parker tapped her fingers on the railing. "I want to be there, but my dad is actually expecting me to be here in Hong Kong until after Christmas. And Portalocity just refused to consider booking a trip for me with any kind of time-travel, damnit. Hong Kong is some kind of hub, they claim it won't work."

"Maybe," Parker admitted grudgingly. If it hadn't been Angela, who'd been there for the first go-round, she would've tried to lie. "I wish there was something I could do from here." She was quiet a long minute. "I had nightmares about that guy for months afterward. He's still in my top three of people I want dead. Are you ready for this?"

"He's behind bars this time, so that has to help." Probably not enough, though. "If you see him, don't let him get to you? He's not going to be there long. The good guys have already won this one. You and Marty already stood up to him when practically no one else did, or thought they had to." Parker took a deep breath. "Call me if the situation changes. Please?" For good or bad.

"At best." Parker grimaced. "Okay. Hope things go okay with Portalocity, tell Marty I said good luck, and be careful. And if you do see that sonuvabitch, maybe you can flick a cigarette at him for me."

"Even better," Parker said, sounding more cheerful. "Talk to you later. Bye, Angela."

Twenty minutes later there was a knock at the door and a very concerned man on the other side.

"It'll be fine," He said holding on to her firmly. "Do we know anything else?"

Marty nodded. "I already got a bag packed in the car."

Granted it was filled with stakes and other vampire hunting weapons but it was a bag.

"It's probably a good idea to get back there just in case something happens. Maybe we can help somehow."

Marty nodded. "We don't have to make any crazy stops, do we?"

"Well it could have been worse. At least we're not ending up in a woman's restroom this time," Marty said in a feeble attempt at humor.

"I don't know. I think my hips gave me away," he joked. "Do we have to go to a weird place to catch the portal?"

"Um. Maybe a little out of place," Marty said rubbing his neck. "We can always say we're there waiting for a friend. Or somethign."

"No. I don't think I'll ever be," Marty said with a dark look. "But if us being there can stop him from hurting anyone else then we have to go."

Marty took a deep breath and opened the door. "Fandom, here we come."
