A/N: Sorry, everyone. But I have a major writer's block for this story, so updates for it will be far and few between, until I get a brainstorm. I'm sorry for making you wait. This is a sad to fluff chapter and it sucks, I know. But like I said, I have such a writer's block.
There Is A Reason For Everything
Chapter 8: The Big Sister Gig
Luna's eyes bubbled with hot, salt filled quivering hand covered her mouth, as she stared at the white sheet that covered her grandmother's body.
Penny placed a careful hand on Luna's shoulder. "I'm so sorry."
Luna took Penny's hand, and with her help, pulled herself to her feet. "I don't know what I'm going to do without her."
"You're going to do just what you would have done if she'd died naturally." Penny replied. "You're going to become the next High Priestess of your coven."
Luna's bottom lip quivered. "B-but..."
"No, dear. It's your destiny and it's what Maylin wanted."
Luna wiped her tear drenched face. "H-how?"
"You go get cleaned up." Penny ordered. "I'll take care of things here."
"How are we going to explain this?"
"I said that I'll take care of it." Penny said, before pointing to the bathroom. "Go get cleaned up."
"Thank you, Mrs. Halliwell."
"Penny." Luna whispered, before lumbering off to the bathroom and shutting the door behind her.
Penny turned to face Prue. "Take your sisters home. I'll take care of things here."
"But what if Pyro..."
"Use your powers."
Prue sighed, waving her arm towards her younger sisters. "Come on, I'll call a cab." She ushered her sisters out of the room and then followed.
-2 Hours Later-
Phoebe twiddled her fingers, as she sat at the edge of her bed with her baby sister. "So..uhh..."
Paige bit her lower lip. "What do we do now?"
Phoebe shrugged. "I don't know. I've never been the 'Big Sister' before."
"I've never been a 'sister' before." Paige giggled, as did Phoebe.
"Well, we've got the whole night to do whatever."
"Oh no you don't."
Paige and Phoebe looked up to see Prue in the doorway, with her arms folded tightly over her chest. "Huh?"
"You two have to get to bed."
Prue wagged her index finger, cutting off Phoebe. "Bed, now." She ordered. Suddenly the sheets on the bed pulled back.
"Whoa!" Phoebe said, as she jumped off the bed. "Man, I wish I could do that!"
"Yeah." Paige agreed. "I could kick total butt at school."
Prue smirked inwardly. "Are you sleeping in here tonight, Paige?"
Paige and Phoebe exchanged looks, before nodding in agreement.
"I'll go get the sleeping bag."
"Thanks." Paige said.
"You could always share my bed." Phoebe offered.
Paige raised an eyebrow.
Phoebe shrugged. "Piper and I used to share her bed when I was younger." She grabbed the top pillow, she had two, and handed it to Paige. "I mean, if you want to..."
"Sure." Paige agreed, grinning from ear to ear.
Phoebe smiled proudly. This big sister gig is pretty cool. She thought, as Paige settled under the covers.
"Goodnight." Prue said, as she flicked off the light.
"'Night, Prue." Phoebe and Paige muttered, as Prue left.
"Goodnight, Paige." Phoebe said.
Paige, all ready groggy from the day's events, let her eyes flutter closed. "'Night, sis."
Phoebe smiled, before closing her eyes and drifting off to sleep as well. She'd face her problems tomorrow, with her sisters; all of her sisters.
