Who: Cordelia Chase, Fred Burkle
What: Cordelia arrives at the complex to see Fred.
When: 4 PM April 23
Shortly after the brief communication with Fred, Cordelia managed to catch a taxi to the apartment complex that the other woman had given her the address to. Her stomach was tight with anxiety as she stared out the window at the houses and businesses they passed as they drove. Her mind was spinning with all of the information she'd already gathered. Angel, Buffy, Dawn, and Faith were all there, too.
Batman was real.
They were facing an apocalypse that involved the actual devil.
And it was the year 2012. Holy crap.
She chewed nervously on her nails, something she only did when she was very stressed, and if all of that wasn't enough reason to bite her nails, she didn't know what else was. When the car pulled to a stop outside the building, she reached for her purse instinctively only to realize she didn't have a purse with her.
She winced and looked at the driver. "I'm so sorry. I don't have any money on me."
He glanced back at her, frowning. "Seriously?"
"My purse was stolen." Okay, so it was a lie. But she doubted he'd believe that she was from the year 2001 and the Powers That Be had somehow yanked her from the past and thrown her into Lawrence, Kansas, to help fight an apocalypse.
He sighed. "All right. Just go." He waved her out, shaking his head.
"Thank you. I'm sorry," she said again, quickly climbing out of the car and making her way up the sidewalk to the complex.
