Hey, Sorry it's been such a long time since I last updated but I've been backpacking for the past 12 months! Travel is INCREDIBLE! From now on I'll be updating often...on the sequel to this... hope you will read it!
Hope you Enjoy!
Remember to review and thanks so much to my reviewers.
"Piper", Phoebe shouted for her sister as she entered the Manor, "you will never guess who I bumped into today".
The elder of the two Halliwell sisters bit her lip in thought, "um..."
"Joyce that's who..."
"I thought I was meant to guess Phebes"
Rolling her eyes Phoebe ignored her sisters comment, "remember Joyce...Joyce Summers...Prues best friend from Bucklands?"
"Oh, she has a daughter a few years older than Rose doesn't she? Bunny, Betty, Beth...something like that...no Buffy, right?"
Phoebe nodded, "Yes Buffy Anne Summers, she turned eight two weeks before Rose turned four," here she hesitated, "I um...I actually invited Joyce, Hank and Buffy to dinner tonight Pipes, that's not a problem is it?"
Sighing, Piper shrugged, "I don't really have an option do I. I'm going to assume you want me to cook...unless your going to serve your speciality of uncooked beans on burnt toast?"
Phoebe mock glared at her sister, "Well I was hoping you would cook, but I suppose I could always do as you suggested"
"Its cool Phebes, it'll probably be good for Rose to have a few more non-magical friends as well".
Phoebe ran a hand through her hair as she watched her niece fiddle with the ring on her finger. Over a year had passed since she had married Cole and they were still no closer to finding a way of removing the band from Roses hand. The elders had known nothing about it, Demons knew nothing about it and the Avatars had know nothing about it. Not that it had caused any major problems, the only magical property the ring had displayed, since it had first been put on, was causing Rose pain whenever anyone tried to take it off. So long as no one was attempting to remove the ring, Rose seemed to pretty much forget she was wearing it. As the doorbell rang Phoebe jogged herself out of her internal monologue and went back to facing the issue at hand, "So Rose, what do you need to remember tonight?"
"Not to use any magic in front of Mr Summers, Mrs Summers and Buffy"
"What else do you need to remember?"
"Not to talk about magic at all...that's all", Rose went to jump off the couch and head towards the hall where the voices of her Aunt Piper and the expected guests could be faintly heard.
Phoebe hid a grin, "No I think there are three more important things that you need to remember tonight Ladybug!"
Scowling, Rose kicked her heels against the side of the seat, "...to eat all of my vegetables, to be polite and to share the chocolate glazed doughnuts".
Phoebe smiled "good girl Rose, I'm sure you and Buffy are going to get along just great".
"Buffy, this is Rose. Rose, this is Buffy"
Rose eyed the older girl standing shyly in front of her. Taking in the girls matching pink dress and cardigan along with her shiny, white, unscuffed dolly shoes before looking down at her own outfit, the sunflower flip-flops (one missing a sunflower), a pair of rainbow striped, grass stained shorts all finished off by Uncles Coles old, faded, 'shrunk in the wash', Acdc T-shirt. "I'm Rose and I'm four"
Smiling, Buffy showed that she was currently missing her two front teeth, "I'm Buffy and I'm eight"
Rose bit her lip, "do you want to play in my room?"
Her earlier shyness disappearing, Buffy nodded as the younger girl grabbed her hand and pulled her towards the staircase leading to her room. "Can we play pretend?"
Rose looked thoughtful, "as long as I don't have to be a cowboy!"
The two girls sat legs crossed on Roses bed, "cool, I wish I could ice skate, all I can do is ballet"
"I could teach you. I've been having lessons for a whole three months now and when I grow up I'm going to be just like Dorothy Hamill, she's really really good!"
"Wow...teach me", Rose demanded excitedly, before tacking on a quick please as an afterthought, then smiling winningly at her new friend.
"OK, stand up"
Rose copied Buffy and slid off the bed, "now what?"
Brow furrowed, Buffy looked around the room. "We need to make more space. I don't think we are going to be strong enough to move all this furniture though, I suppose I could ask Daddy...but I don't think he'd do it".
Rose knew she was going to get in trouble for what she was about to do, a lot of trouble, but she really wanted to learn how to ice dance...and if nobody found out what she was going to do, well she couldn't get in trouble then, could she! "Can you keep a secret?"
"Yep I'm really good at keeping secrets"
"You can't tell anyone..not ever!"
Buffys eyes widened as she took note of the unexpected seriousness in the younger girls tone, "I won't, not ever. Unless you tell me I can".
Rose squinted in concentration and raised her arms, using her telekinesis to move her bed, desk and chair out of the way, making more space for them to play in.
"That's so Cool! I wish I could do it...can you do anything else?"
Rose smiled, pleased she had impressed Buffy, who could already read big girl books all by herself as well as being able to do proper joined up writing and count to a thousand. "yep, I can also freeze stuff, blow stuff up and levitate. I have premonitions and forcefields, but my bestest power is projection...it's the coolest one!"
"...being a Witch sound awesome and being a Dhampir...I wouldn't want to have to fight Demons and Strigoi though"
"Aunt Piper, Aunt Phoebe, Uncle Cole and Uncle Leo do most of the fighting, because they say I'm not old enough yet. I only really help when they need the Power of Three, like with the Avatars, The Source, Zancou and Shax, or when the Manor is attacked"
Buffy looked thoughtful, "so your Aunts and you make up the Power of Three, but you sorta have it on your own as well, even though they don't?"
Rose nodded in affirmation, "they are the Charmed ones and I'm kinda the Charmed One...it's cos I have all the charmed powers as well as two of my own...that's what my Uncle Leo said anyway".
Buffy and Rose lay stretched out on the floor of the lounge, "Your Aunts are really lucky...I wish I had a sister"
"I think being a only child is rubbish"
"Me to. My friend Vika has two sisters and a brother, sometimes she lets me borrow them...but not very often."
"I wish you were my baby sister"
Rose sighed, "I wish you were my big sister".
Buffy sat up excitedly, "Why can't I be?" she looked at Rose, "from now on I am Buffy Anne Summers-Halliwell-Hathaway and you can be Primrose Marie Halliwell-Hathaway-Summers. Sisters forever and ever!"
Rose nodded, "Primrose Marie Halliwell-Hathaway-Summers...it's a long name"
Buffy held up her pinkie finger.
Smiling Rose sat up and linked her pinkie with Buffys, before whispering excitedly "Sisters forever and ever".
"Time to go Buffy, honey"
"No. I don't want to go yet Mom, Rose and I are playing".
Joyce placed her hands on her waist, "Buffy it's almost nine...and you have been playing all evening, it's time to go home".
Rose pouted, "Please Mrs. Summers, please let Buffy stay and play a little bit longer"
Joyce looked at the two girls, both wearing pleading puppy-dog expressions, "I'm sorry Rose, but it really is time for us to go home".
Piper walked into the room, "and it's close to being two hours past your bedtime Rose, you can see Buffy again soon".
"Can I go to ice skating lessons with Buffy...please Auntie Piper...please!"
"Please let her Mrs. Halliwell...it's only two hours on a Saturday morning and it's soooo fun"
Piper bit her lip,"I don't know,"
"Please..." both Rose and Buffy pleaded
"Maybe. I'll talk to Phoebe, Leo and Cole about it"
"Yay" Rose high-fived her brand new sister Buffy.
"That's a maybe Primrose, not a yes".
Leaning in Rose whispered happily to Buffy, "maybe always means yes".
Piper closed her eyes, pretending not to have heard the comment.
"So if you could write down the number to call along with the time and place of ice-skating it would be great Hank".
Hank lent against the table as he wrote the information down, "If there is room in the class, give us a call and we can carpool".
Phoebe smiled, "it was so good to see you again Joyce and lovely to meet you to Hank. Rose and Buffy really hit it off".
Laughing Joyce agreed, "Buffy told me earlier, over dinner, that Rose is her new honorary baby sister. So it appears that we have picked up a second daughter and you four have got a second niece".
That is actually the end of the first story. I know not much has really happened in this instalment but it was mainly just setting up some of the relationships that are really going to help Rose develop as a person. She will be really close to Buffy, it won't be like her bond with Lissa though. Personally I think that Rose sees Lissa as her baby-sister, someone she needs to protect and look out for. Whereas Buffy is her big sister the one who looks out for her and Vika I think is kind of like her twin.
I hope you all enjoyed it The first chapter of the sequel will be up in a few days. I will put a note on this story. So that anyone with alerts is notified.
Thanks so much for reading. Please review
