Fic: Let's Eat  
Wrote this for drabble_much. Challenge is over, posting it here. The prompt was "Dinner Date"

Title: Let's Eat
Pairing or Main Characters: Angel, Wesley, Cordelia (no pairing)
Rating: K+
Word count: 298

Cordelia set the blood down in front of Angel. "I changed it up to make it a bit more festive."

Angel sniffed the blood when Cordelia turned her back to get the TV dinners out of her oven. His nose wrinkled momentarily but he appreciated the thought. "Smells like pumpkin pie."

"Duh. Because I put pumpkin pie spice in it." She rolled her eyes at the clueless vampire. She took one tray, setting it down in front of Wesley and then one at her place. She sat down.

"Thank you, Cordelia. This looks lovely." Wes was relieved that when Cordelia had invited them over for Thanksgiving dinner, she wasn't planning to cook.

"Hey, only the best for my guys. I sprung for the Marie Callender ones instead of the cheapo Swanson ones. And that is fresh pig's blood. As in, I stood there and watched them do it. You owe me a new pair of shoes, Angel." Cordelia raised her glass. Angel then raised his glass of blood. Wesley was the last to raise his glass.

"Okay, I made the dinner; one of you slackers has to do the toast." Cordelia said.

"I don't do toasts." Angel said. It was another thing to add to his lists of "don'ts".

"Well, I think I might be the right man for the job." Wesley cleared his throat and straightened his tie. "There comes a time in every man's life when he must look to his friends and I say to you that this time is now and the friends are…"

"Wes, hurry up, my gravy is turning into the revolting blob here." Cordelia poked it with a fork.

"Ah, yes, where was I…" Wesley struggled to remember.

"I think you were at 'let's eat'." Cordelia replied.

"Yes, then, well…let's eat."

Oh come on! Those Marie Callendar's dinners are damn expensive! I remember when I was really hard up for money right out of college, it was like a little treat to get the chicken cordon bleu. How sad is that? LOL It is like wee! No ramen tonight! We are living it up, buying MC, AND IT IS NOT ON SALE!!

I have kind of a thing for the cuteness and closeness of the trio of Wes, Angel, and Cordelia. I really liked that time in the series. I wish we got to see more of the guys invading Cordy's apartment after TSILA

Well, jeeze, come on over, I will take some out of the freezer, and we can have a regular old feast! See, won't even have to pay for it then. LOL (Unless, you know, I bill you!)

And it is Sunday, brains are allowed to be fried. My brain is fried every day that ends in day. :)

"I think you were at 'let's eat'." Cordelia replied.

"Yes, then, well…let's eat."

Love the ending - it's just a perfect Wes trying to be pompous moment and Cordy shutting it down. Fabulous ficlet babe.
