Part 7.

P3. . .

Paige took care of the club for her sister who's preparing to go home.

"Are you really ok?" – asked Paige.

"Yeah. I just want to sleep." – answered Piper.

"OK, take your rest. I'm sure he'll see you soon." – Paige grabbed her sister's hand – "He's probably waiting for you at home."

Leo's waiting for his wife impatiently at the Manor. He determined to draw her baby out after hearing the baby's powers were dark magic. But he'd never taken any life, he'd only cured people as a medic and a whitelighter.

"I'm not commiting a crime. I'm saving the world." – thought him – "You force me to do this, Piper. You've betrayed me. You deserve it."

Piper opened the door, his eyes became obscure to see her.

"You've returned from his place." – spoke him with his teeth clenching out of anger.

"I've been at P3 with Paige." – said her.

"Liar!" – cried Leo angrily.

"What're you thinking? I haven't seen him." – cried Piper – "I think you've re-examined your actions with a cool head before coming back here."

"Re-examine? I've already done. You slept with him even when I was living here and went over my head keeping his spawn."

She's speechless in amazement. What's her husband just saying? He thought she'd slept with Cole and got the baby.

"Get out of my house!" – said Piper sternly.

"You've changed." – Leo came to put his hands on her shoulders – "He's blindfolded your eyes, his evil spawn's covered your mind."

"Take your hands away." – she glared at her husband furiously, she couldn't know who'd stuffed those idea in his head. He's an angel, but he's so mean to see the situation soundly and objectively – "How could you judge me like that ? As if we've never known each other."

"The Elders told you cheated on me, your son with that bastard would be The Right Source."

Piper's surprised to find her angel husband had got those false information from The Elders who's supposed to be very good and noble.

"You trust them?"

"Not only them. Phoebe also admited you using your baby's demonic powers." – snorted Leo – "I myself saw you and that bastard kissing."

"Have you ever listened to me?" – challenged Piper – "You believe everyone except your wife. I don't think it was so easy to split us. I thought you're the one understood my temperament most. But you know nothing."

"If I'd known any clue, I would've let you use me?" - shouted Leo – "You copulated with me only to assure your evil son could cover his trace from both side's radars."

Piper burned with anger, she swung her hand to blow him up and walked straight upstairs. But she doubled in pain on her way, she turned around to see him holding a crystal ball on one hand and his other hand stretching out. He's using magic on her. Her stomach's griping sharply, she thought of her baby at once, and blew him up again.

Piper ran up to her room intending to phone Paige. While she's dialing, Leo re-appeared with the crystal ball. She dropped her phone down in panic, she couldn't think he resolutely determined to kill her baby to the end. He'd lost his sanity for jealousy, she blew him, and ran down going out. She thought he wouldn't use magic in public so that she'd possibly call Paige.

Pain overflowed her body on the last step, she fell on the ground, helpless. Leo's stretching his hand, a force of gravity spread out from his palm toward her stomach.

"No, Leo!" – begged Piper – "He's your own son. You can't doubt that, please stop harming him."

A beam of light escaped her to go directly to the ball. She felt a piercing pain tear her body part.

"No!. . ."

Piper passed out, her stomach turned flat.

Leo walked down to heal her, but he stopped a few seconds later. "She's dishonoured, she isn't my Piper I loved. She doesn't deserve my concern." – thought Leo – "She hasn't got injured by demon anyway."

He orbed out.

Phoebe came to Eric's apartment. He smiled opening his door for her.

"Nice to see you again."

She just glared at him and walked in.

"He's come." – said her briefly.

"Of course. All of us knew he'd come." – smirked Eric.

"Since when you worked with them?"

"A long time." – shrugged him – "Frankly, we haven't frequently contacted, just when we need each other's helps. Then we go on the game, good versus evil."

"What'll happen after we become almighty?" – asked Phoebe.

"They'll loyally serve us forever." – both of them looked at each other dreaming of it.

"I'll bring you my book, then you use it to summon yours. We'll copy the powers."

"I can't get my book this way." – Eric shook his head.

"You told me."

"I don't have this power. Just an Avatar can." – said him.

"What's Avatar?" – surprised Phoebe.

"He claims he's not good nor evil. I just know there's no way to harm him, he's invincible."

It seemed Phoebe knew a lot of creatures to be invincible recently. It showed her that The great Charmed Ones were becoming nothing in magic world. Their powers were limitted while that certain Avatar could summon two greatest magic book but he'd just given the Grimoir to the demons and returned the Book of Shadows to her family without destroying them to copy the powers. It meant he wasn't interested in them, it also meant they couldn't compare with his powers.

"What should we do?" – murmured her.

"Enlarge your powers and we'll force Clegie to deliver the Grimoir."

"It's very good." – smiled Phoebe joyfully – "I need militant powers."

"I've already asked the Avatar. We have to do something for him first."

"Everyone exchanges their benefits to each other like that?"

"For their own benefits." – added Eric.

"What he wants us to do?"

"Ask the Elder to bring Prue back."

Phoebe gasped, she hadn't got along well with her oldest sister, but she loved her. The important thing was everything were chaos enough, she didn't want to have more trouble. How was the situation if Prue came back. And why that Avatar needed her there?

"Why he wants her?"

"We never raise a "why", Phoebe." – said Eric – "We just approve or disapprove the exchange."

"OK." – mumbled her. She didn't know how to think. She wanted to see what's going on. She saw Eric more dangerous than Cole, moreover, he was supported by many resources. He's right, if she didn't try hard, she would have no place to stand in the magic world.

"Ready to meet your high-principled boss." – said Eric to Phoebe, then he called out – "Gerald."

Orb light appeared forming into a man.

"He's Gerald, an Elder." – introduced Eric.

"You call him as we call a whitelighter." – commented Phoebe.

"Phoebe Halliwell, you've done a good job." – said the elder.

"I've promised her to ask you to bring her sister back as a whitelighter." – answered Eric on behalf of her.

He didn't mention the Avatar to him, Phoebe thought Gerald probably didn't know about the existance of that creature.

"It's unfair. I just asked you give Leo a push, and now you intervene in our job." – protested Gerald.

"We haven't seen her since she's dead." – said Phoebe – "I don't think Leo's still our whitelighter tomorrow."

She didn't know what plan the elders are keeping for him, but she did know something would be changed. He'd killed his own son after all.

"We'll assign a new one to you." – said Gerald.

"I want Prue." – cried Phoebe – "She's sacrificed herself in action. But everything's a sham. What's good? What's evil? There's no justice on this world."

Eric put a hand on her shoulder to calm her down.

"It isn't a suggestion. It's my request, Gerald. If you still want to keep our business." – emphasised him.

"Fine." – answered The Elder. He orbed out.

"Take it easy!" – said Eric to Phoebe – "I don't think you love her that much."

She just glared at him, not bothering to explain. It wasn't involved in whether she loved Prue or not, she had to do what that Avatar asked to get her powers. It's a first priority. She's also disappointed The Elders and everything good or being defined good. What she just learnt was there's no good ever existed. The only rule was "survival of the fittest".

"Call the Avatar!" – asked her in a low voice.

"He said he'd show up once his request's fulfilled." – said Eric.

"It means it isn't ensured he keeps his words?"

A man flashed in, drawing her attention.

"Chris!" – gasped Phoebe.

"I never go back on my words." – said him.

"You two know each other?" – asked Eric.

"He's my nephew." – whispered Phoebe.

Eric astonished, but Chris ignored her statement.

"You ask me to give her some powers. Which ones?" – asked Chris.

"Phoebe!" – Eric implied her to tell him herself.

"I want active powers to fight." – she still wasn't composed enough.

"Good. But I have to make it clear first. You're going to get a new power as a Charmed One. You'll be an empath." – announced Chris – "If you receive the powers I give, you'll never get any from The Elders up there from now on."

"You won't need them, Phoebe!" – reminded Eric. After copying the powers from the books, she would be almighty, she'd have all the powers.

"I agree." – said her.

Chris smiled:

"You want white or dark powers?"

Phoebe never wanted to get dark powers, she's afraid of evil, she wanted to be noble and lofty.

"White." – answered her.

"OK. Listen, I don't give them to you freely, you have to exchange your current powers for them. You're owning 2, what you want to replace?"

"I'll lose them?" – hesitated her.

Eric put his hand on her again:

"New powers are more important, Phoebe!"

She glanced at him a little while, and turned her eyes to Chris, her nephew was smiling, he didn't look friendly, he didn't seem to be family, he's totally a stranger for her.

"You take my powers away and give me new ones?" – asked her. She wondered why he had that right, Eric'd said he's an Avatar, but she had no idea who an Avatar was.

"No. I'll take the owner of the powers you want, transfer them to you. That owner will be dead. And your old powers will be transferred to some other witches later."

Phoebe felt horrible to find her nephew have no feeling to speak of the death.

"If they're from two owners? You'll kill both?" – asked her.

"There're a large number of witches on this world. Whatever powers you want, there's one have them." – said Chris.

"You're evil."

"I'm not good nor evil." – stated him – "If you want dark magic, I'll do the same to demon."

"I think dark powers are more useful." – suggested Eric.

Phoebe thought of shimmering, she wanted to have a magic transport, she's sick of asking Paige for it. And she'd used to kill demons with fireballs when she'd been the queen, she loved it.

"Will I turn to a demon if I have demonic powers?"

"Nah. The former Source used to have witch powers." – answered Chris – "You can be evil. But you weren't born as a demon, you'll never be."

Eric and Phoebe sighed of relief. It meant they could still carry out their plan.

"I want the shimmering and fireballs." – said her warily.

"Fine." – Chris always kept his smile. He chanted a summons spell enigmatically. A demon appeared and his first action was throw a fireball to Chris.

Phoebe shuddered, but became more horrible to see the demon's attack couldn't harm him, meanwhile he raised his hand up and the demon writhed in pain. A beam of light emitted from the poor demon to enter Chris, his other hand held out toward Phoebe and that beam left him for her. When the process finished, that demon bursted into flames and vanished. Phoebe had absorbed her new powers completely, suddenly another beam escaped from her transfering to Chris, she knew it's her old powers, the witch powers. After it faded, she felt strange, new and a lot of emotion mixing up.

"Care to try?" – proposed Chris.

Phoebe lifted her hand up instantly and zapped her nephew without hesitance. She let fire attack fiercely to him as if she wanted to burn him forever. Chris quelled the fire with just a wave. Eric was also freezed with it.

"Who are you?"

"I'm an Avatar."

"What do you want?"

"I don't have to explain to you."

"You warned us to keep our bond, but you're willing to give me dark powers, you helped the Underworld retrieve the Grimoir. And don't tell me you didn't know your father was going to kill your brother."

"Do you want to take my other advice, Phoebe?" – Chris raised his voice up – "Stay where you're staying, don't try anything else, you'll make the tragedy less tragic."

"You know everything and you help it happen?" – stunned her – "I can't believe the son of a Charmed One and an angel are such evil."

"I'm not good nor evil." – stated Chris again – "I'm here to make sure everything will happen the way they should, including you turn evil and my brother is taken."

"Why don't you keep your own family from falling apart? Why do you have this right? Why do you exist this way? And where am I living? Everything is nothing. You've already known where I'll end up, how I'll finish my life. . ."

"That's good, Phoebe! Let your humanity dominate over yourself. You're not original evil. Keep it in your mind!" – said him.

"What you talk is different from what you do. Why?"

"You have ten minutes until he's unfreezed. Kill him, you'll reverse everything's just happened here. Or go on. Your future depends on yourself."

He flashed out. Phoebe turned to Eric, he kept freezing. She conjured a fireball on her palm.

. . . . . . . Cole's Penthouse. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Cole felt weird while lying in bed. It was only ten but he had been tired and thinking about Phoebe's claiming to be pregnant. He didn't know what to believe. He knew she wouldn't be cool about being pregnant with his child. He would have to get proof somehow.

He felt an extreme pain and heard distant crying.


She was hurt. He got out of bed and dressed quickly.

. . . Manor. . .

Cole blurred in the living room. He found Piper trash the manor in a fit of rage. She was sobbing terribly.

"Piper" called Cole running up to her.

She saw him and pushed him away from her.

"It's your fault!" she screamed angrily. She punched him in the jaw.

"Piper" said Cole trying to grab her flying fist.

"My baby's dead!" shouted Piper. "Dead…dead,dead,dead…"

Cole grabbed her as she dropped to the floor in tears. He embraced her while whispering comforting words. He rocked her.

"I hate you" she sobbed while burying herself further next to him.

He kissed the top of her head.

"I'm here" said Cole. "Tell me."

"L…Leo. He killed my son" sobbed Piper.

Cole perked his head up. Leo killed their child. Why? Cole didn't care why. All he wanted to do now was kill Leo.

"Don't leave me" said Piper looking at him. "Please take me with you"

Cole nodded and blurred them away, but not before waving his hand and repairing the living room.

Leo materialized in the heaven, holding the ball in his hand. The Elder's council was having a meeting, so he had to wait until it finished. He couldn't banish the image of Piper lying lifelessly on the ground. He closed his eyes, but it just became clearer. Suddenly he heard the conversation between his bosses echo from inside.

"It's done. Leo Wyatt has killed Piper Halliwell and sucked the baby's essence out. He's waiting for us outside." – announced Elder Gerald.

"Good. Everything's good again." – commented a deep voice from the present leading Elder.

"Congratulations! Long live Eldest Hayes!" – cheered all of The Elders.

Leo had never seen Eldest Hayes since he didn't meet whitelighters. He's supposed to be very sainted, but Leo didn't feel it while hearing their meeting. Those walls were soundproofed, but he did hear clearly that they had been expecting him to kill his wife, Elder Gerald hadn't told him that.

"All of us have benefits." – said Hayes – "We'll share the essence's powers."

"Before it we have a thing to discuss. The Halliwell witches need a new whitelighter after we got rid of Leo Wyatt. . ." – said Gerald.

He still kept saying, but Leo couldn't hear them anymore, the space sank in silence, he turned around, startlingly realized Chris there.

"Who are you?" – asked Leo.

The question has been answered, Chris is an Avatar in this story. So chapter 3 is ended here.

The next chapter will be : Complications.

Phoebe's got two effective powers and been co-operating with Eric to become almighty. Is she really pregnant with Cole's child? What's her plan?

Leo's found out The Elders use him for their benefits and they're going to kill him. He won't let them do it for sure. What's he doing to survive? Will he accept to lose Piper? What's his plan?

Chris is there to make sure what happen? He is a friend or foe? What's his plan?

Paige is becoming alone. In the future she's begged Chris to warn her sisters and her past self to keep the bond. What's she doing now to prevent this wrong future? What's her plan?

Cole and Piper are not friends to both of sides. How will they manage to be together and overcome in such a complicated situation?

We have a little adjustment that the rest of this story will be posted by GrantingTroyTurner under a new tittle "I love you, Cole II". Please keep following it and supporting us to the end!
