Fights Among Cousins

~Chapter 1~

"Mom, have you seen my algebra homework?" Whitney asked with frustration.

"Where was the last place you saw it?"

Whitney thought then yelled, "Carli!"

"What, what, what - why does everyone always yell for me? Whit, your algebra homework's in your light purple folder in your backpack," Carli said coming into the kitchen.

"Hey sweetie, you take after your dad."

"Mommi, what do you mean?" Carli asked confused.

"Your dad gets yelled for, too, you know, just for different reasons."

"Hey, come on, we're going to be late," Prue said running down the stairs, "wait - where's Summer?"

"Coming Prue, hold your horses!" Summer said while running down the stairs and telekinetically picking up her backpack.

"Hey - that was personal gain!"

"No it was not, Whitney! I did it so you three wouldn't be late to school!" was Summer's retort.

Carli quickly interrupted with, "Will you two stop it before we're all late to school anyway!"

"Bye Mom," Prue said picking Summer up and leaving.

"Bye," Summer said as she was being carried out the door.

"You two better go, bye."

"Bye mom."

"Bye Mommi," Carli said with a hug, "hey Whit, wait for me."

*Prue's Car*

"Hey, you can't do that!" Prue exclaimed.

Why not? I just did. Thought Summer.

"Hey, I heard that," Prue said indignantly.

"That's not fair, Prue, I hate it when you read my thoughts." Summer said hotly, "Make her stop Whitney."

"What do you want me to do? It's Prue's car, she gets to decide what music we listen to, even if it is that classical crap. You know, Prue doesn't have to give you a ride to school. You could walk or ride the bus." Whitney said, trying to make peace.

Carli added, "How about you two call a truce? Prue, don't read Summer's thoughts and Summer, don't telekinetically change the radio station."

"Okay, Truce," Summer said with a sigh.

"Truce. You know, Summer, you could bring your CD player with you to listen to in the car." Prue said while pulling to a stop, "Bye Carli, see you after school."

"Bye Prue, Bye Summer, Bye Whit." Carli said as she got out and shut the door.

"Urgh," Whitney said in frustration, "what does demise mean?"

"Why?" Prue asked suspiciously, "Do you have another vocabulary test you haven't studied for?"

"I studied, just not a whole lot," Whitney explained.

"It means death, especially to some one in a lofty position," Summer explained from the back seat.

"How did you know that?" Whitney asked with surprise, "Did you cast Aunt Phoebe's smart spell?"

"No, I wouldn't do that. Mom would kill me if I did. Bye Guys." Summer said as she got out of the car.

"Later sis." Prue said

"Bye Sum." Said Whitney.

"Hey, you always tell Carli and Summer that we're gonna be late but we never are."

"I know, but we could be." Prue replied.

They pulled up to the high school and got out.

Prue said, "don't forget after we pick Carli up we have to go get Summer at soccer practice."

"Okay," Whitney said, "then at 6:30 we have to be back at school to practice before the game. See you later Prue."
