Fic: Behind the Burden

Title: Behind the Burden
Fandom: Angel
Character: Cordelia
Rating: K+
Summary: She thinks back to her high school days and finds it is herself she doesn't understand.



She thinks back to high school and finds it is herself she doesn't understand. Gone are the days of caring about the latest style, the newest shoes, the perfect image. Popularity is a game played by those who care for themselves. There is no place for it here, where demons will kill who they want regardless of looks or wealth.

It took a lot to get her to truly understand this, despite her vampire-slaying Sunnydale days, complete with near-fatal injuries, kidnappings, magical spells. She used to think she did get it. She knows better now.

A vision strikes her, beating her with fresh shards of pain. Another demon. Another innocent in need of rescue. Sometimes it's a little too black and white but it works. There is always someone who needs to be saved. This knowledge is a burden, but behind the burden lies maturity she has stepped into and embraces.
