A Vampire with a Soul Becomes Human: "Angel"

"Oops, I may have made a tiny mistake. The uhhh word, sunshu, I said that meant you are going to die, actually I think it means you are going to live...sunshu has roots in so many different languages, the most ancient source is the protoo bantu, they consider life and death the same thing, only a thing that's not alive never dies. You get to live until you die, it's's saying, you will become a human... The vampire with a soul, once he fulfills his destiny, will sunshu, become human. It's his reward!"

"Wow, Angel human? Wait, where's that thing about him having to fulfill his destiny first?"

"Well, it's saying it won't happen today or the next day. He has to survive the coming darkness, the battles, a few plagues and some, ooohhh, several, but not that many, fiends that will be unleashed upon the world."

"So," Angel says "don't break out the champagne just yet."

"Oh yeah, break out the champagne Pinocchio," Cordelia says, "this is a big deal."

"I guess it is."

"Typical, I hook up with the only person in history who ever came to L.A. to get older!"
