A/N: Written for the 2008 iwry_marathon a
nd beta’d by the wonderful eowyn_315. Many thanks to only_passenger for listening to me whine, and providing invaluable support and help with initial story planning and characterization. I couldn’t have done it without you both. 

I love FITB fics and, for me, this particular moment on the show left a wealth of unanswered questions. Where did Buffy and Angel meet? What did they do? How long was she gone? Why did she describe it as “intense?” I tried to address all of those unknowns in turn, as well as foreshadow and explore how she ended up falling into her affair with Spike. Step in to see the mystery unfold.
