Phoebe and Prue had just come back from their shopping frenzy with a new style for Prue.
"I don't know Phoebe the Betsy Johnson dress might be too much for work "Prue said who was unsure of this risk.
"Who said it was for work" replied Phoebe her eyes sparkling with humour I was just about to reply to that very crude comment. When in came a shirtless Leo and a giggling half naked Pipers she let out a little gasp when she saw us freezing Leo and sliding to our feet.
"I'm so embarrassed" said Piper who was bright red from being caught with Leo holding up her arms so Prue and Phoebe could help her up.
"Uh she has other things on her mind like having her way with the handyman" laughed Phoebe who found the situation hilarious.
"I thought you guys were supposed to be shopping" whispered Piper who didn't want Leo to unfreeze and find her halfway across the room.
"Oh obviously" smirked Prue teasing Piper was so much fun.
"Oh look she's wearing the front clasp Bra she means business" pointed out Phoebe while Prue was trying to see if Phoebe was telling the truth and pulled the shirt up a bit to see.
"Oh she defiantly means business" teased Prue while Piper swatted both Phoebe's and Prue's hands away.
"Do you mind" she snapped when Phoebe and Prue went for the shirt again.
"Oh we think it's great as long as you two use protection" Phoebe advised her she really was happy for Piper though those two were so cute together.
"Not what I mean I never know how long this thing lasts" she muttered to us she then turned around to find a pile of shopping bags "how much did you guys spend?" she asked surprised by the vast amount of bags there were clothes spilling out of the bags and piled on top of each other.
"Lots Prue's new look is perfect for an H.W.D" explained Phoebe glancing at the large pile.
"What's an H.W.D?" asked Prue looking at her sister quizzically.
"Hot Witch Dating" Phoebe explained Prue and Piper's confused look disappeared.
"Prue are you sure this has nothing to do with the Dean situation" two month's ago Dean's and Sam's Dad had called and the two of them had gone Demon crazy they were hardly here anymore always busy with a hunt. They hadn't even told them what their Dad had had them.
"Does this look like something an upset woman would wear?" Phoebe asked showing her a scanty red corset they had bought.
"Maybe you can borrow it" Prue offered holding it up to see it would fit her to which Piper slapped her arm away.
"Ok times up" she said pushing both Phoebe and Prue into the sitting room "now be quit" Piper cautioned.
"We will if you are" shouted Phoebe she sent us one last glare before getting back into position. Leo snapped out of it and ran up the stairs as if nothing had happened before slamming the door shut behind them.
Prue was trying some of the new clothes on when Kit started hissing at something. I glanced at my bag suddenly remembering that my Planner was still in there I got it out and placed it under my desk the usual spot. Knock, Knock "Come in" I shouted thinking it was Phoebe who wanted to gossip some more about Leo and Piper but I was shocked to find that it was Dean.
I wasn't sure if I should be happy or angry we stared at each other for while.
"Hi how are you doing" I think that was when I lost it.
"How have I been doing? I've worried sick about you" I screamed at him "For two months I haven't heard anything from you I was so scared, I thought something had happened to you, you didn't even give us a explanation no calls no warning of your sudden departure" I continued but he didn't say anything for while my anger died out and all I was left with was hurt I glared at him for a while.
"Look Prue I'm sorry and I promise I'll explain soon not now but soon" he promised me I was still and didn't say anything he caressed my face and hugged me tightly I responded to that and wrapped my arms around him tightly. I was still angry at him but I would look over that for now. I let go of him and studied him from arms length he looked tired but good healthy.
"You've got a new style" he said after a while snorted at this of course Dean would notice that it was a tight black dress which was also classy. I shook my head at him before getting undressed and climbing to bed
Rex glanced at Hannah who had been waiting for his return he smirked at how easy it had been to get her to do what he had said.
"How did it go?" asked Hannah leaning closer to Rex.
"Prue did exactly as I told her to" he informed her straightening his suit "You know I rather like this new power" he told her thinking of all the ways he could misuse it or in his case use it.
"You're sure she didn't see you?" asked Hannah still scared of being found out and vanquished.
"No no she didn't see me I was invisible" explained Rex extremely happy on how things were panning out.
"But how did you get there?" she asked confused about all this he sighed sometimes Hannah could be very stupid it was tedious.
"I've explained this to you Hannah" when she still looked confused he continued "It's called astral projection it's where I can transport myself psychically and implant a thought into someone's mind" he explained for the umpteenth time.
"I sort of understand how it works" she said I almost groaned Hannah really could be stupid at times. So I decided to show her.
"Watch" was all he said he walked to a chair Hannah's eyes were concentrated on to him excited to see what he would do next. He breathed in deeply before his conscious departed from his body.
"You want him desperately desperately" his conscious whispered into her ear. She began to unbutton her jacket and shrugged it off.
"Do you see what I mean now?" he asked her, smirking slightly she didn't say anything I really do love this power.
Prue was trying out different clothes trying to find something that was appropriate for work and looked good.
"Dean" I shook him awake.
"Hmm what?" he asked groggily rubbing his eyes he looked so cute when he was sleepy.
"What do you think I should wear this or this?" I asked him holding up multiple outfits.
"I like the dress but the suit would be good for work" answered Dean I tried a few more outfits until I decide to go with the suit that Dean recommended.
"Are you coming down stairs?" I asked Dean.
"Yeah in a minute" he told me I climbed down the stairs to only be ambushed by Phoebe who was wearing my suit.
"So how did your night go with Dean" Phoebe asked innocently.
"How did you know about Dean coming back?"
Phoebe inspected her nails before saying mysteriously "I have my sources" I eyed her.
"Phoebe that's my suit" I pointed out annoyed that she had borrowed my clothes.
"I'm recycling it" she said in her baby voice.
"I know I know but take it off" Phoebe pouted. That was when Piper came down the stairs in a brisk walk.
"Hi bye" she said trying to get away from her sisters before they could question her on her night with Leo.
"You have to go to work early?" Prue asked sympathetically.
"Yeah it took longer to get out of bed okay bye" she ran for the door but before she could open it her sisters were blocking her path so close yet so far I thought to myself I now know what that quote meant.
"You, Leo, last night, dish" Phoebe ordered.
"Well it was nice it was wonderful we just had a few problems" she said slowly turning red this was so embarrassing they would use this as blackmail forever.
"Problems?" Asked Prue who didn't know where this was going.
"Well it's been a while since you know I and I was a little nervous and I kind of kept freezing him?" Piper finished off awkwardly they were never going to let her live this down. Phoebe was laughing so hard now and Prue couldn't help but gasp.
"Piper you didn't" she said hoping that this was a joke on Piper's behalf.
"I didn't mean to the first time" she had joined in her sister's laughter now also finding the situation amusing.
"Okay so at what point did you freeze him?" I asked her she was silent for a minute. Oh My God she couldn't have Phoebe must have caught up with my realization because she now had tears streaming down her face.
"I've got to go" was all she said before she left for the door but we pulled her back.
"Piper we're just teasing you" I said feeling bad about are teasing.
"Yeah I'm just jealous" Phoebe consoled her "I mean between you and Leo, New hot Prue with her boyfriend back and a soon to be employed me things are starting to look up"
"Don't say that the moment someone says that everything goes south" warned Piper.
"Then why don't you just freeze him" Phoebe joked I couldn't help but snort but faked it and pretended it was a cough. "Sorry I couldn't help it, it was just so good" she apologised when Piper gave Phoebe a glare.
"Okay let's get the car" I took Phoebe's hand and led her towards the door that was when both Dean and Leo.
"I've got to go how about we get some Coffee when it's your break" he said I smiled up at him.
"I'd love that" I gently kissed him before leaving for work with Phoebe who had decided to accompany me. There were police everywhere; I glanced around to see if there was anyone I know who could tell me what was happening.
"Jamie, hey what's going on?" Prue asked.
"We've got a problem someone broke into the auction house and stole something" I gasped at what had he had just said if people found out we'd be out of business no one would trust us with their possessions again.
"What did they steal?" I asked I tried to think of any suspicious people that had been lurking around when I was locking up but my mind came blank.
"The Tiara" he told us grimly my eyes widened in shock how could this happen I mean that was put under heavy security. That was when I spotted Rex talking to a police. His appearance wasn't dishevelled or tired no he looked smart perfect even and that made me uneasy. It wasn't just that though I had been getting bad vibes from him all week.
"Hi Rex I heard what happened" I said feeling truly bad for him.
"Hello Phoebe nice to see you again" Rex greeted her politely but there was lust evident in his voice. I immediately became protective when he made subtle attempts to see what was under her shirt pervert Ithought venomously to myself.
"Hi and we are so sorry" added Phoebe giving her condolences.
"I am to" Rex said sadly but he didn't look that sad on the whole he looked quite pleased with himself.
"I mean this is going to severely damage our reputation, I mean who is going consign anything with us if..." Rex said and I suddenly saw the severity of the situation.
"No, no, no. We just have to get the Tiara back before word gets out" I quickly said as much as I disliked Rex I would put my difference behind us and would try to get it back.
"I agree" replied Rex quickly "Will you help me with this like talk to the police. You are the only one I can trust?" Despite him being a huge creep and all my bad vibes that coming off from him couldn't help but feel pride when he picked me out of all workers here.
"Sure. But what about you?" I asked.
"Unfortunately I have a commitment to attend to. I promised some friend that I'd go to their concert." He explained to us.
"Really what band?"Asked Phoebe who was curious about this but then again so was I.
"The Verve" he told her.
"The Verve, are you serious?" Phoebe asked in excitement she had a strange obsession with them to the point it that she knew everything and I mean everything about them.
"You know them?" he asked faking surprise I narrowed my eyes at him and was just about to interrupt when she started talking about Bittersweet Symphony. Phoebe could talk for hours when it came to that song it could get rather annoying.
"Now here's an idea. I could get tickets for you two" I made a face at this I really didn't want him going anywhere near Phoebe he must have noticed because he asked if I were okay with that.
"I'm fine why wouldn't I be "I made a quick excuse "but I can't come I've got a date with Dean" he looked upset that I couldn't make it but masked it with a smile.
"Well I've got to go" said Phoebe noticing the tension between us "I promise I'll bring the car back" she said facing me she sent one more wave before leaving for work.
"Thanks for pitching in Prue" he patted my shoulder I mentally cringed. That was when my Darryl and ... was, that Vivian.
"Prue it seems that we keep bumping into each other" she spoke hostilely.
"Nice to see you to Viv" I smirked at her she hated the nickname I had christened her with.
"I thought I told you not to call me that" Vivien snapped she really did hate Prue.
"And I thought I told you to piss off" was my retort but she smirked at me vindictively.
"Unfortunately I can't. You have to come with me I'm interviewing you since you were the last person to see the Tiara" Vivian was enjoying this a lot only if Andy could see this he'd be quite surprised by the trouble she was getting into.
"I'm thinking one clock" Vivian spoke hatefully I'm going to get her into prison one way or another she wouldn't ever forgive her for Andy's death after all he'd still be alive if it weren't for her.
"Three clock" Prue spat we continued glaring at each other with so much hate it was indescribable. Darryl quickly cut in before it could get out of hand like last time he flinched at what had happened he had had to tear them apart from each other and had gotten a black eye broken nose and a few cracked ribs. He counted himself lucky it could have been far worse.
"Okay we'll interview you at three clock" he said ignoring the angry glare that Vivian was giving him. She smiled at me and gave Vivian one more glare before going into her office. A hard pressure slammed against the side of my head.
"What was that "for? Glared Darryl rubbing his sore spot no matter how much he liked Vivian she was crazy and that was a fact.
"That was for giving into her" snapped Vivian before storming out I sighed she was defiantly crazy that was for sure.
I was at the cafe waiting for Prue to arrive when in came a vey angry Prue, I glanced at her it was always safe to let her cool down before pestering her about what was wrong. I was quite for a while waiting for her to start talking.
"Hi sorry I'm late I was held up at work" she explained to me I nodded at her answer.
"I haven't been waiting that long anyway so it's fine" I reassured her.
"So what have you been p to these past two month's?" I asked curiously his eyes didn't stray from the menu.
"Oh the usual. What are you getting?" he quickly changed the subject before Prue could ask anything else about him self. She must have sensed it was a touchy subject. We talked for ages our food completely forgotten until I had to ruin it by asking why she had been so angry. She made a face at my question.
"Something got stolen at the Auction House and well I'm being interviewed about it" she said slowly she was approaching this with caution.
"So how does this have anything to do with your little tantrum" she gave me a glare when I said she had had a tantrum.
"Well someone who hates me and who I hate back is doing the interviewing" I made a face at this. I was upset that Vivian was interviewing me she would probably make it her life's goal to get me in jail. The two hours passed by quickly and soon she had to leave for her interview.
"Do you want to have dinner with me? Piper's going to be at work and Phoebe is going to a concert" Why not take advantage of the soon to be empty house I was suddenly very glad that Phoebe was going to that concert with Rex. It meant I could spend some quality time with Dean.
"Sure I'd love to. How about seven clock?" Said Dean cheerfully. I grinned at him before planting a small kiss on the corner of his lip.
Prue was now at the police station and it wasn't going well they thought she had stolen the Tiara.
"You said that you put the Tiara back in the vault before you left. Was anyone else there?" Vivian asked professionally this must be really hard to see my face and have to be polite to me but then again it was hard for me as well Vivian wasn't the only person who had to be civil.
"Yes and the security Jamie was there" I answered keeping it short and simple.
"Did he lock up the vault?" Vivian asked writing some notes down.
"No I did," I said Oh God if they didn't think that I was the thief now they would think so later.
"Ok did you happen to take anything out of the vault?" Vivian asked calmly I got annoyed by her endless questions.
"Is this an interview or an interrogation" I snapped at them.
"It's what ever you want it to be" smirked Vivian I glared at her and before any harm could befall her Darryl had stepped in giving Vivian a stern look before talking to me.
"There weren't any signs of forced entry on the vault or Auction House" Said Darryl.
"So you think that it's someone from inside stole the Tiara, someone like me" I was officially annoyed now.
"Now where did you get that notion from" Vivian said sarcastically.
"Ok we've got all the information we need, thank you and good bye Darryl quickly stepped in before it could turn into a full fletch cat fight. I gave Vivian one last glare before leaving.
"What the hell was that about?" snapped Darryl.
"I like pissing her off" Vivian shrugged getting bored of Darryl's ranting.
"Well one more peep from you and you are off the investigation" and before Vivian could protest he had left the room Vivian was left fuming over nearly being kicked off the investigation and Prue.
"I'm going to have you in prison where you can rot in hell if it's the last thing I do" she vowed to herself before to leaving the room.
I was watching a movie with Dean we had just eaten and I was now curled up by his side. He was getting restless I could tell I shifted slightly so I was facing him.
"Why are you so restless today?" I asked him softly.
"I got a call" he told me abruptly I could tell that he didn't want to talk about this I nodded my head at his short response and went back to my original position. Dean's eyes were glazed and I don't think he saw anything. That was when he snapped out of it he wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me on top of him. He kissed me passionately and I responded eagerly. His kiss was desperate, angry. His lips soon left mine and attacked my neck instead that was when the ringing of his phone broke the passion filled silence.
"Aren't you going to pick that" I asked Dean breathlessly when he made no move to pick up.
"I'd... rather... be ...here" he said in between light kisses but in the end his phone won.
"What" Dean spoke in a husky tone, he paused for a second listening to whoever it was on the receiving line.
"Could you give me five more minutes?" asked Dean he paused again an annoyed look passed over his face and after a while I think he had had an enough and hung up the phone.
"Now where were?" Dean asked me smirking I grinned at him before pulling him into another kiss this one was gentle but was just as passionate as the last one.
"Hello anyone here?" Shouted out Phoebe "Prue" she shouted out again wondering into the sitting room. Me and Dean were sitting on the couch watching the movie by the time Phoebe came in.
"What have you two been up too?" Phoebe asked eyeing the two of us.
"Nothing much we were just watching a movie" I lied to her yeah we had watched a movie but we hadn't just done that.
"Okay" Phoebe nodded not sensing anything wrong with my answer "I've got so much to tell you" Phoebe said excitedly.
"I guess that's my cue to leave" he interrupted Phoebe before she could get into full swing "see you later" he smiled at me and I pulled him into a hug "See you Phoebe" he said to her.
"See you later. Oh and can you tell Sam that he needs to visit more often and he needs to pick up his phone when we call?" asked Phoebe Dean nodded before leaving.
It was morning and Prue had just finished telling her about Vivian and the interview.
"But how could she think you stole it I mean she's known you for ages and you two used to be best friends" Piper said shocked that Vivian was being so spiteful and cruel to Prue I mean yeah she knew that after the whole Andy disaster they had became enemies but for God sake they used to share a bath together.
"Who used to be best friends?" asked Phoebe ambling down the stairs.
"Vivian and me oh there is a voicemail from Sam for you" I told her pointing to a phone that was next to the box of roses.
"Roses who are they for?" I asked curiously toying with them while I dialled in Sam's number.
"There for you from Rex" Prue answered reading her magazine
"Who opened them?" I asked I already knew who it was but I needed to check Piper quickly exited the room taking the roses with her while Prue tried to change the subject.
"Rex was just helping me find a job so what's the big problem?" Phoebe snapped not understanding why Prue couldn't be happy for her.
"Phoebe really it's none of my business" said Prue not wanting to get into another fight with her again the. She was saved by the door bell I felt like laughing of the irony of it all.
"It's just watch what you say there are certain things I don't want my boss to know" she warned me I rolled my eyes in annoyance after everything we had been through and she still couldn't bring herself to trust me.
I heard Prue going to the door and answering it I went out into the hallway to see who it was only to find Darryl and Vivian. I had never liked Vivian even before they started hating each other I had disliked her.
"Hi Darryl" I sent a smile at him I then turned to Vivian only doing this to be polite "Vivian" I said coldly frowning at her presence.
"Nice to see you to" Vivian said sarcastically I ignored her and went straight to the point.
"So why are you here?" asked Phoebe curiously scrutinizing Vivian in distaste.
"Oh we got sent a search warrant" answered Darryl looking tire we stared at them i shock before hollering.
"How can you even that you think that Prue stole the Tiara" ranted Phoebe angrily
"Easy we..." but her sentence was cut when Darryl gave her a warning glare she shut up quickly but not before giving Phoebe a nasty smile .Darryl was looking under her bed and Vivian was looking through Prue's drawer. That was when Piper something sparkly caught her eye she concentrated hard on the object when she suddenly realized it was the Tiara she quickly froze the room before Vivian who was currently looking through the same drawer the Tiara was in.
"Why did you freeze them?" questioned Prue confused by her Piper's actions but Piper didn't answer her instead running to my drawer that Vivian was looking through she pulled out the Tiara facing me with accusing eyes.
"That's why" Piper said waving the Tiara in her face.
"W w wait that is not possible, how did it get there?" shocked by this new found discovery.
"I don't know but we have to come up with a answer before they unfreeze" Piper told them nervously glancing at the two frozen figures.
"Someone must have planted there" Phoebe said who didn't believe for one second that Prue had stolen the Tiara.
"Who somebody's been in our house" Piper said who also didn't believe that Prue had stolen the Tiara but was sceptical about someone breaking into their house to plant the Tiara in Prue's room.
"It doesn't matter just let them find it I have nothing to hide. I'm innocent" Prue said annoyed at all the fuss they were making over it.
"That doesn't look very innocent" Phoebe snapped pointing at the Tiara that was lying on the bed "Piper hide it" Piper nodded and hid it under Prue's pillow until it was completely obscured from view.
That was when everything unfroze. A thought was nagging her at the back of her mind it felt like someone was telling her to look under the pillow.
"Morris look under the pillow" Vivian suggested looking up from her search in Prue's drawer Darryl nodded making his way up to Prue's bed only to be frozen again.
"How did they know that" exclaimed Phoebe shocked that they had found the Tiara's hiding place so easily especially since it had been so well camouflaged.
"Coincidence" suggested Prue but even she didn't think this was likely not when it came to them.
"It doesn't matter now hide it in" Phoebe franticly looked for a hiding place before Darryl and Vivian unfroze. That was when it came to her Prue's underwear drawer they couldn't look in there without looking like perverts"your underwear drawer." Both her sisters looked at her as if she were crazy.
"No one ever looks in your underwear drawer unless they want to be labelled as perverts" I explained to them.
"How do you" Prue trailed off slowly I just shook my head at her.
"You don't want to know" I grimaced at the painful memory. That had to be the worst time of my life I thought to myself but my reminiscing was cut short when Vivian and Darryl unfroze just in time as well. Piper had got back into position seconds before time was revived. We watched them waiting to see what their next move was. Vivian was still for a moment and if it hadn't been for Piper who was standing right next to her she would have suspected that she was frozen.
"Morris look in the underwear drawer" Vivian spoke after being quit for some time Darryl looked at her incredulously.
"Why don't you look in there" snapped Darryl after getting over his disbelief. Vivian seemed annoyed at this reply and snapped back with a.
"Get over yourself" if the Tiara hadn't been hidden in Prue's underwear drawer Phoebe would have snickered. Vivian wore the pants then in their friendship which wasn't surprising at all since Vivian presence alone was very dominant and commanded attention.
"Freeze them" I murmured hardly moving my lips she nodded before freezing them for third time.
"This is getting ridiculous" I moaned unimpressed at the way things were going it was like someone was telling Vivian where the Tiara was hidden. I heard arguing making its way up the stair. I checked to see if it was Dean and Sam before pulling them both into the room.
"It's me" I yelled deflecting some of there attacks they stopped when they noticed us and all the people frozen.
"Sorry Phoebe" mumbled Dean who had been the most offensive while Sam sent me a sheepish smile I smiled back at him before advancing on to the problem that we needed help with.
"We need you hide this in the laundry" I said in a rush not pausing to give them a explanation before shoving them out of the room so they could hide the Tiara. Everything unfroze again that was when Vivian noticed that we were in different position. I winced at our blunder Vivian was stubborn she wouldn't give up until she found out how we had been in different positions.
"Weren't you in the middle?" Vivian asked confused when she saw the change in our arrangement.
"I moved when you were looking in Prue's cupboard" I quickly said Vivian narrowed her eyes at me she clearly didn't believe me and was just about to say something when Prue intervened. Thank God as well I'm a horrid liar.
"Whoa crazy as well as blind not the best of mix" Prue sneered momentarily causing Vivian to forget about our change in positioning.
"That's enough for now" Darryl said after scrounging every inch of Prue's bedroom. Fro the corner of my eyes I saw Vivian fuming about not finding the Tiara I couldn't help but smirk anything that caused Vivian to be angry was alright by her.
"Fine" Vivian spoke stiffly giving them a curt nod before exiting the room. It felt like another presence had left the room as well she hadn't noticed it until now and shrugged it off letting relief wash over her.
Somewhere in Buckland's Rex was fuming the Witch's had inhibited his plan.
"Stupid Witch's" Rex roared pushing all his stuff off his desk venting out all his anger. Hannah looked calm and didn't seem bothered by his outburst.
"Did they find the Tiara?" she asked seconds after he had cooled down.
"No Piper kept on freezing them and then moving it" Rex grumbled walking around the room restlessly.
"Bu then how are we going to frame her if they can't even find the evidence?" Hannah asked she knew it was close to suicide to disturb his thinking.
"Shush" he said sharply holding his finger up to silence her she quickly shut up waiting for him to come up with another better plan.
"We're going to up the stakes" Hannah looked at him confused how they were going to do that.
Prue Piper and Phoebe had just finished explaining to a very confused Dean and Sam what was going on.
"Someone must have used magic to set me up" Prue came up and she knew exactly who.
"But who?" asked Piper cleaning the shelves.
"Who else hates me and always try's to make my life at work a living hell" I pointed out.
"You think its Hannah?" Piper asked sceptical about this Hannah may have hated Prue but she didn't believe that Hannah could have thought of all this without someone's help. Hannah may have been a Bitch but she wasn't smart enough to think of all that. The phone rang breaking there reverie.
"It might be Leo" suggested Phoebe she didn't want to even think about that but Leo was always there not to mention he had become a great deal closer to them making them vulnerable if it did turn out that Leo was the one trying to frame Prue.
"Leo no what" spluttered Piper upset at even the thought of it "why is it always my boyfriend?" Phoebe and Prue both gave her a look.
"Don't answer that" Piper said quickly when Phoebe opened her mouth "answer that it's safer" she said when no one made a move to pick up the still ringing phone.
"Hi Rex" she paused listing closely to what Rex was saying "Yes but" she started again sounding exasperated "I'll give it to right now" she mumbled her voice didn't portray her annoyance but her facial expression did.
"It's for you" Prue announced hostile thrusting the phone into Phoebe's waiting hands. Phoebe looked at Prue from the corner of her eye waving me off when I tickled her. She sent me a hard glare mouthing me to stop it but I pretended that I couldn't understand that she was mouthing to me.
I blanked out and ignored her conversation catching a few words that made no sense when put together "Yeah I'd love to" blushed Phoebe a big smile painted on to her face, I was shocked Phoebe never blushed notice the emphasis on never. I saw Phoebe walk out of the room to somewhere more private before turning my attention back on to the important matters. I was surprised that Prue, Sam and Dean were already conversing on what to do next, how long had I blanked out for?
"So what are going to do?" I asked Prue wanting to catch up on what I had missed.
"Well my sister is dating my boss. What can I do?" I smirked at that I could tell she had wanted to say that for ages, she had at least released some of her anger.
"I don't think she meant that Prue" Dean mentioned earning himself a glare from a not yet calm Prue; I couldn't help but laugh at those two and their antics.
I slowly opened the door cautiously making my way to the multiple chests that surrounded the attic. I glanced through the different chests looking for one thing and one thing only. I used my power to open the drawers and then flicking my hand to close them. That was when I heard footsteps hastily slamming all the drawers shut with my power there was a drawer slightly ajar but hopefully whoever it was wouldn't notice it.
"What are you doing up her?" Piper asked sharply mistrust evident on her face. I looked at her and lied lie after lie rushed out of my mouth. I saw her relax and she smiled up at me relieved to see that it was just something innocent. My guilt and love for her clouded my better judgment and I told her something I shouldn't have.
"Piper I might be leaving soon" I admitted grudgingly.
"Is home far?" she asked softly I nodded she closed her eyes trying to hide her pain. I caressed her face gently and let my lips gently brush against her forehead before leaving her to wallow in her sadness.
I felt like a coward,
Phoebe was at the door of Rex Apartment Phoebe wasn't sure what she was expecting but she knew that it wasn't going to be in poor condition. That was when I felt something leave I wasn't quite sure what it was like a though or an itch or even a presence. Shock after shock went through her entire body engulfing her in excitement and setting her nerves alight.
"I'm so glad you could make it, come in" Rex welcomed me in taking my coat. I let out a gasp of amazement his home was amazing no amazing could not describe how breathtakingly beautiful it was.
"Your home..." I began not being able to form a proper sentence to stunned by it I was also intimidated here he had the most amazing house ever. He really does have everything I thought wistfully to myself.
"Spectacular" he boasted I decided to ignore that flaw "I mean if I had a house like this I would boast as well) since he has helped me so much and he is a really nice guy.
"How did you know what I was thinking?" I asked him
"We must be on the same wave length" he answered quickly looking shifty "Champagne" he poured me a glass before handing it to me I took it thankful that he had given me a drink. For some odd reason I was really thirsty.
"Am I early" I said breaking the awkward silence.
"No you're right on time" he said vaguely dancing away from the truth.
"But I though there was supposed to be a Dinner Party?" I asked at him staring at him expectantly my drink completely forgotten.
"With a very exclusive list" when he saw that I was still confused he added on "you and me" he laughed at his own little joke and I laughed with him (I didn't find it particularly funny) I suddenly wish I had listened to Prue or taken Sam's offer on drinks.
"A toast to you interview" he raised his glass before taking a small sip I stared at him confused this guy was creating more questions instead of answering them.
"I got an interview for you at Zeitgeist magazine. For the fashion selection" he told me proudly I could have kissed him right now but instead settled for a smile.
"Thank you but what's the catch" it was meant to be a joke but obviously Rex took it seriously.
"You have to sleep with me" he said in a serious tone I looked at him angrily Rex was just like rest of them (not counting Dean or Sam) I couldn't believe I had thought he was a nice guy he was just a slimy greasy douche.
"Phoebe I was joking" he placated me my scowl melted away and in its place was a sheepish smile. I felt so stupid of course Rex wouldn't say something like that he was a gentlemen "What type of man do you think I am" he placed a soothing hand on my arm chasing away the last of my doubts.
"I hope you enjoy Sushi its imported fresh from Kyoto. Please make your self at home" he told me before leaving to get the Sushi. I looked around and memorised all the details before getting out my mirror to do my make up. That was when I had a Premonition it felt like I had been run over by a train. It didn't feel like my usual Premonition but I was to busy watching the scene in front me unfolding to notice the small difference. I watched horrified as I saw Prue get hurt that was when I was yanked out of it.
"Prue" I gasped.
"Is everything alright?" Rex asked rushing over to me I nodded.
"Look Rex I've got to go, I can't explain I'll call you later" I blabbered not waiting for his response and leaving before he could squeeze a word into my incoherent garble of words.
Just when she was leaving her thought she heard Rex beseeching for help from the police but she shook it off she had Prue to worry about.
I was walking down the dark hall I had decided to stay late at work despite Dean and Piper's attempts to dissuade me.
"Working late" a mysterious voice commented I let out a little shriek of surprise "Oh sorry Prue I didn't mean to scare you" he quickly apologised I gave him a weak smile. I waited for my heart to go back to its usual rate before speaking.
"Its ok I'm just a little jumpy" I consoled him he looked at me sympathetically, normally I would be very defensive when someone was pitying me but this was Jaime I couldn't get mad at him he had to be the kindest most gentle man she had ever had the fortune of meeting.
"I don't blame you with everything that's going on" Jaime sighed looking miserable that terrible things were happening to such a hard working women.
"Hey Jaime was anyone else here yesterday night?" Prue asked looking hopeful.
"Sorry no" I shook my head I saw her deflate and she looked miserable "Hey if it means anything I know that you didn't do it. You are the most hard working person I have ever met" she smiled that happy that someone believed her.
"Thanks Jaime" she said before leaving to go home I nodded at her continuing my patrol happy that I had been able to cheer her up. I didn't know why but I felt no needed to go to the Warehouse. I walked outside I didn't see anything so I was just about to walk back outside. That was when I felt something collide with the back of my head that was when everything went dark.
I was in the elevator when I heard someone scream my whole body froze oh Go don't be Jaime I ran back inside to the Warehouse ignoring the weird sensation that had engulfed me.
I rushed to his motionless body "Jaime, Jaime" I shouted desperately shaking him.
"He's dead" Phoebe's soft hands pulled me away from him, when did Phoebe get here? I thought to myself but that was pushed to the back of my mind when Phoebe's words really hit home and to make matters worse the Police had arrived. From the corner of my eye I could see Vivian and Darryl walking towards me and from Vivian's smug expression it was not good.
"You would have saved yourself a whole lot of trouble if you had told us that you had stolen the Tiara" smirked Vivian Darryl sent her a reprimanding look but she ignored it and continued on "you wouldn't be charged with murder as well" I was not in the mood for Vivian right now,I never was but right now she was asking for it she was being Bitcher then usual.
"What the hell are you talking about?" I snapped putting all my energy into a glare directed at her.
"You know the Tiara the one you stole" she spoke in a condensing tone as if she were speaking to a five year old.
"Prue didn't steal anything if you don't remember it wasn't in the house" Phoebe pipe in smugly Vivian sent Phoebe a scathing look one that could match my own but by the time she had sent it Phoebe was already talking to Darryl.
"Don't play innocent with me we saw you on CC TV taking the Tiara out of the vault" snarled Vivian she looked just about ready to tear Phoebe and me apart.
"What that's not possible" I shook my head "Someone must have manipulated me" I said desperately I needed someone to believe me especially my sisters.
"Someone must have manipulated me as well to be a witness for my own sister" U relaxed she didn't believe that I had stolen the Tiara. I heard Darryl asking Vivian asking what we were talking about and her answering with I don't know.
"Look can we ask you a few questions" Darryl asked politely.
"I already told you what happened" she snapped at them but he only watched her patiently waiting for her to retell him all the details "I was working late I heard a noise I came downstairs I found Jaime" Prue said listing all the major details.
"So you didn't know that Jaime had the missing tape" Vivian stated in disbelief.
"So you think she killed him. Vivian?" Phoebe spat.
"No Prue I want to see how far she is going to go through with this" said Phoebe before turning back to Vivian "and this has nothing to do with Andy" both Vivian and Prue flinched at the way Andy's name was used so coldly.
"Stop it" Prue said through gritted teeth she may not have had any feelings for him anymore but that didn't mean she didn't care.
"Look we have got her standing over the dead body with the weapon in her hand. What else do you think we're supposed to expect?" Darryl said trying to get Phoebe to see his point of the view but Phoebe was having none of it and refused to see it from their perspective.
"You know she didn't do this" pleaded Phoebe trying to crack Vivian's shell and show her that Prue wasn't a murderer.
"I'm sorry" Vivian's words were sincere and she seemed more like the old Vivian who she had been able to share everything with"Brian" Vivian called. A tall burly man walked towards them.
"Your under arrest" but Vivian didn't look happy she looked upset angry even maybe she was beginning to see that Prue never kill someone. I watched them take Prue away, I watched and couldn't do anything.
They were all outside Rex's apartment trying to figure out what to do next. Piper and Phoebe had never had to work by themselves it wasn't that they weren't independent because they were it was just they had always had Prue power of three or otherwise.
"We could always get a Lawyer" Sam suggested just as concerned for Prue ass the others Phoebe shook her head.
"With what money" Phoebe pointed out the boys were broke and the girls weren't that rich.
"That's why we go to Rex?"Dean asked both him and Piper had been reluctant to go to Rex with him being so close to Hannah.
"We don't have any other options so unless you have a better idea" no one said anything at this and Phoebe went back to knocking but no one answered, so Phoebe decided to open. The whole room was empty the grandeur that Phoebe had told me about was gone and in its place was dark and unwelcoming room.
"Wow this is amazing I can really what you meant when you said it was spectacular" Dean said sarcastically I couldn't help but snicker which earned me a glare from Phoebe and a disproving look from Sam.
"This was all an illusion all of it even my Premonition" exclaimed Phoebe horrified that she hadn't listened to Prue and had fallen for his trick.
"How is that possible though" Sam asked curiously.
"Mind control Astral projection throwing charms who knows" she listed all the possibilities
"I dated a Warlock" still shocked that it had been her who had dated the Warlock instead of Piper who had the tendency to date the wrong people at the wrong time Piper smirked at me.
"Already done that" she joked and with their laughing ringing in my head we leftRex's apartment with a new battle plan.
I should have been happy getting Prue in prison had been a life long vow. She was a murderer and a thief and should have been happy that I had made the San Francisco a little bit safer. I should have been happy and celebrating but instead I was wallowing in my own guilt because deep down I knew that Prue wouldn't and couldn't kill someone. I tried to forget it thinking that she deserved it but I couldn't let an innocent women go into prison and let people suffer because of it because that was everything that I had to stop. So I decided to do the one thing I could search up Hannah and Rex's names up on the internet. My eyes widened at what I had found or more like didn't find.
"I've got to go to the station" I said out loud grabbing my coat and car keys before leaving.
"Prue, Prue" she felt someone shake her awake from her pleasant dream "Prue" the voice was hushed I slowly woke up only to find my sisters and Dean and Sam in the same cell as me.
"What are you guys doing here?" she asked them groggily rubbing away the sleep in her eyes.
"We're breaking you out" Sam replied nervously glancing to the frozen guards.
"Come on Prue we need you to get out so we can vanquish Rex" Piper said impatiently "and the guards won't stay frozen for long"
"Rex?" I questioned.
"We'll explain at home" Phoebe said dragging me out with the help of Dean and with that we escaped back to the Manor. They quickly explained what had happened while she was in prison. That was when Rex appeared out of no where literally.
"Quite photogenic this is" stated Rex waving the photo of them that he had just token of them in their face "the police would be quite interested in this don't you think2 he smirked to himself waiting eagerly for a reaction that was bound to come.
"You Bastard" seethed Prue shaking uncontrollably from her anger.
"How did you know that we be here?" asked Sam.
"I've been watching you" gloated Rex and she instantly felt sick to the stomach what had he seen. Prue had always known he was a pervert but this.
"What are you some stalker" snarled Dean.
"Ina figure of speaking yes" Rex leered "and I wouldn't get angry if I were you" he smirked when he saw me just about to throw him into the wall "I'm your only way out, Hannah is at your house getting the Tiara just as we speak" he told us.
"Astral projection" we all looked at Phoebe weirdly "his power is Astral Projection" she said clearer.
"What do you want" I asked
"Your powers of course that's the only reason why I hired you" Rex sneered even though I hated Rex I was slightly hurt that the only reason why I had been hired was because of my heritage not my skills.
"Why all the Drama though why not kill us when you had the chance?" Phoebe asked I mentally face palmed my self; of course Phoebe had to ask that.
"Don't go giving him any ideas" Sam warned her.
"I've seen what you can do when you are faced directly so I decided to use blackmail instead, you see there is a special spell that gets rid of your powers you then give it to me" Rex finished telling us his mastermind plan he looked victorious.
"Go to hell" I spat there was no way in hell or heaven was I going to give my powers him.
"Already been there and I miss it" he said wistfully "and in return for your powers I'll give you the photo's and tell the police that I had misplaced the Tiara" and before we could say anything he was gone.
"What do we do now?" I asked my voice was weak and quite there was so much at stake.
Me Piper and Phoebe surrounded the Book of Shadows while Sam and Dean hovered over us. I flicked through the Book of Shadows not seeing any spell to get rid of our powers.
"It's called a Relinquishment spell. If we read it out loud it takes away our powers" Piper said gloomily so far the situation wasn't looking up. I guess we weren't so charmed after all.
"Is there a way to get your powers back?" Sam asked looking over our shoulders.
"No it doesn't say" Piper sighed closing the big book.
"Well I say that we flip to another page so we can kick Rex's ass" Phoebe said not understanding why they jut vanquished Rex.
"For all we know he could be right her listening and watching us" Prue leaned closer talking in a hushed whisper.
"So we're just supposed to give up our powers without a fight" Phoebe snapped in disbelief.
"Phoebe" I began but she interrupted me trying to make me see reason.
"Prue these are our gifts they are a part of us" she continued on.
"They are who we are" Piper added quietly.
"Exactly these powers are gifts" Phoebe repeated again for emphasis "Gifts that are used to save innocents and ultimately pass down to the second generation."
"Don't you think I know that we wouldn't be in this situation if it hadn't been for me? I said I had a look of defeat "we wouldn't be giving away our powers if I had followed my instinct and not trusted Rex" I said sadly ignoring the looks I was getting from Sam and Dean.
"Prue it's not your fault" Piper said softly.
"None of us blame you" Phoebe added and it was true they didn't blame Prue for this.
"There has got to be a way to get you all out of this" Dean mused to himself.
"Like become fugitives cause something tells me that isn't the best way to save innocents" Piper snapped.
"Well we can't give our powers up either especially not to evil" Phoebe quickly came to Dean's defence.
"No we can't let that happen" Prue shook her head it was still a win win for Rex they'd be separated if she went to prison and Rex could easily kill them without their powers.
"Well we can't leave you in prison" Dean argued hotly, he was already thinking of way to protect them when or if they gave their powers to Rex.
"Dean's right" Piper added joining in Dean's lecture. I sighed in exasperation.
"Then what d we do" I snapped I saw some hurt flicker in Pipers eyes and instantly felt bad for my sharp words.
"Well what we don't do is give up our powers" Phoebe said stubbornly trying to get her point across. I rolled my eyes at her why does she have to be so dam stubborn. A slight breeze slipped into the room we all stared at each other hard refusing to back down. A battle of the wills.
"I guess we say the spell" Phoebe said sadly.
"From whence they came return them now vanish these words vanish our powers" they said in union. The breeze got stronger and all the spells, Demon information everything that was in there all there history rose into the air leaving the Book a blank empty abyss of former words and beautifully illustrated drawings.
"Well it was fun while it lasted" Phoebe said breaking the stiff cold silence.
"Yeah" I muttered it was like spell had relinquished part of ourselves as well our power and Prue knew that nothing would be able to complete that part except their magic
"Let's get this over with" I said mostly to Sam and Dean who had not yet snapped out of their shocked filled stupor.
"Ok do you remember the plan I distract them while Sam gets the lamp you guys then stamp on it" Dean whispered too them urgently retelling them the plan for the millionth time I nodded in response after the nineteenth time of telling us the plan I had zoned off.
"How do we know this isn't a trap" Piper whispered agitatedly she had been reluctant to come here now that we were vulnerable she was scared that Rex might kill us now without powers we were easy to pick off.
"You don't" Rex said cheerfully it was like he was drinking our fear as if he flourished under our hateful gaze.
"Where's Hannah?" I demanded when I noticed her disappearance.
"Lurking after all that is what she does best" he said mysteriously with a evil smile "the lamp" I gave the lamp to him my hand lingering for a few seconds to long before dropping dully by my side.
"Does this seem a little anticlimactic to you I think it needs a more...satisfying end. Don't you?" that evil smile graced his featured.
"Now" he shouted. A panther appeared behind the corner sleek and graceful. I stared in horror Piper had been right Dean and Sam started shooting at it but it had little effect and only made it angrier. I started backing away with Piper and Phoebe behind me but Dean and Sam made no sign to move I grabbed them by the back of their shirts pulling them with me. That was when the Panther pounced ready to devour us. I closed my eyes and waited for the painful impact for claws and teeth to tear at me, but it never came. I peeked a little and was shocked and relieved to find the Panther frozen.
"How?" I asked dazed by the turn in events.
"Doesn't matter" Phoebe quickly said hastily moving Sam and Dean who were currently frozen "a little help here?" Phoebe asked breathing hard.
"Oh yeah sure" I said coming out of my shock infused daze I squinted my eyes at them moving them to safety before moving Rex into the Panthers way. That was when everything unfroze again the Panther didn't pause in its attack and his death was quick. The panther transformed into... Hannah I stared shocked that she had been the Panther.
"No" she screamed in pain.
"What have you done" she screamed again uncontrollable sobs now racked her tiny frame. Fire encircled her wrapping around her body creating something that looked a lot like a tornado her scream was the last thing we heard before she exploded sending them all into a wall.
"We need to get me back into prison" I exclaimed urgently paling at the thought of going back there.
"I'm here to see Prue Halliwell" stated Vivian formally she had never thought that she would be getting out of instead of in prison not after Andy at least. The police showed her Prue's cell I wrinkled my nose in disdain the cell was small and shabby. There was a distinctive lump in the middle of the bed.
"Prue, Prue" I shouted again when I got no response from the unmoving lump I was about to shout again but she woke up.
"What is it" she scowled but the wanted effect was ruined by her grogginess.
"You're off the hook" I grumbled she perked up this straitening up and smoothing her wrinkled clothes.
"Turns off you were right Hannah and Rex were setting you up. Or whoever the hell they were?" I explained to her.
"I don't understand" Prue feigned innocence I narrowed my eyes at her I knew when Prue was acting and this was it she knew something.
"We think they killed two people and took their identity's, took over the auction house the bilked it blaming it on the missing Tiara. Which I found in their office." I told her she didn't seem surprise but again she acted like this was all new to her.
"Thank you" Prue said quickly she looked uncomfortable "and I'm sorry" she hesitated for a while "for everything" I stiffened at that it wasn't a enough to cover up all the hurt but it was a start and with that I left Prue to mule over what she had just said.
The sisters were surrounding the book trying to look for something missing or a clue to how they had got their powers back.
"Spells, incarnation Demon stuff its all there" Piper finally said after looking through the book.
"Thank God" Phoebe exclaimed relieved that they were Witches again.
"But how?" Prue asked who was much more wearisome and cautious then Phoebe and Pip[er who accepted it and were happy.
"Maybe we screwed it up" Phoebe suggested me and Piper both gave her look "what it wouldn't be the first time" she defended herself although now she could see it was very unlikely.
"Well whatever it was it wasn't us" I said. I heard a knock and turned to see who it was expecting Leo but instead it was Sam and Dean.
"Hey. Have you guy's figure who it was who gave you back your powers?" Sam asked eager to know who it was who had saved al their lives.
"No not yet at least" Phoebe said smiling widely at him.
"Knock, knock" a masculine voice emitted we all spun around to see who it was not recognizing Leo's voice.
"Leo" Piper said happily walking to him to give him a kiss.
"Hey the door was open and I forgot my toolbox" Leo answered when he noticed our questioning gazes.
"That's funny it wasn't there last night" Piper looked around confused.
"Yeah you know what they say Freud" Leo joked.
"That you want to secretly want to come and get it back" Piper said hugging Leo tightly.
"Guilty" he smiled.
"Please don't say that word" I groaned I never wanted to hear that word again Leo gave me a bemused look and was just about to ask when Phoebe intercepted him.
"It's a long story" she told him he got a knowing look and nodded.
"You're leaving aren't you?" Piper asked sadly.
"I'm afraid so" Leo sighed.
"Do you have to leave?" I asked him I know it sounded childish but there was a small part that thought there was still a chance for him to stay.
"I've fixed everything I've need" his words seemed to have a double meaning and I stared at him curiously for the first time I wondered who he was.
"And nothing can keep me away from you" he told me he kissed me gently his lips lingering longer then should be.
"See you later" he said addressing it to my sisters and Dean and Sam. I smiled at him watching him leave.
"Well at least he's not a Warlock" I heard Sam say.
"Piper you don't think that Leo could have" she pointed at the book "what are you doing?" Phoebe asked surprised that Prue was tearing it out.
"Just getting the Relinquishment spell out. However we got them back I don't want to risk it again" Prue explained carefully tearing the page with it on out so she didn't damage the book.
"I second that" I said tiredly happy that it was over well for now at least.
"I third that" Phoebe said enthusiastically.
"Here" Dean chucked his lighter at Prue and she set it alight staring happily at the now burning spell. ...
Downstairs Leo was leaving not forever and not for long but for now. I smiled at the thought of Piper beautiful sweet Piper; I would miss them all Dean and Sam Prue and Phoebe. I wonder if they will change he mused to himself but somehow he doubted they would change much and with that in mind I orbed using one of my many powers to close the door.
