Fic: That First Taste of True Fear  
Title: That First Taste of True Fear
Fandom: BtVS
Rating: PG
Summary: Remember that episode where a ghost (The First?) shared his pain with Angel, pain about a scene that Angelus had set up for him (the ghosty guy) to find? Angelus watching that guy find his daughters.
Character: Angelus
Concrit: Please, in Comments
Disclaimer: They aren’t mine, not yet, but they will be… once I’ve taken over the world. Bwah-ha-ha!
Word Count: 100
Prompt: Written for a prompt at Open on Sunday: savor



“Girls?” There was a touch of concern in the voice, but no true fear. That would come later.


As their father stood in the doorway and took in the scene – the two girls playing at formal tea – his smile suggested satisfaction, a sense that all was right in the world. It didn't last.


“Mandy? Beth?” Ah, there it was, that first taste of true fear.


The father fell to the floor, grabbed the bodies into his arms, and rocked back-and-forth and back-and-forth. His haunted eyes stared off at nothing. Killing could wait. Drinking in his pain was much more satisfying.

He set up a tableau for Giles with Jenny, too, so I imagine this was a thing with him.

Creepy and well done.

Yep, it must have been a thing. Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I love to hear that my stories are creepy, not to mention well done. ;-)

Angelus was a master at the full monty torture, captured so well here.

Thank you. Short because it's a response to a prompt from Open on Sunday which only accepts pure drabbles (100 words).

I could totally picture it. That's great to hear since I work on stories that can be visualized.
