Okay...now this is my first fanfic. so please read and review, and be nice in your reviews. This is a Charmed story that i have been working on since at least 2 years ago. i just never got to the point of
putting it out there. I hope you enjoy my first fanfic.
Disclaimer: i don't own Piper/Phoebe/Paige/Prue Halliwell or Leo Wyatt or any of the original characters from Charmed.
Piper and Phoebe Halliwell sat in the kitchen eating a late dinner, chatting.
"I am exhausted!" exclaimed Piper. "Owning a club is a lot harder than you would think."
"Really? I thought you always wanted to own a club since our first anniversary as witches. You know, when Prue . . ." Phoebe stopped talking, remembering how Piper felt about the loss of their oldest sister, Prudence Halliwell. She had died in a fight against one of the Source's little but powerful pawns.
Piper took the sudden delay of talking as her turn to speak.
"It's alright Phoebes. Don't worry. I'm not going to start crying hysterically just because you mentioned Prue's name." Piper gave Phoebe a weak smile.
Hearing this, Paige Matthews, a long lost sister of the Power of Three trotted in, seeming unusually happy.
"Yeah Phoebe. I don't mean to brag, but I did save your life when Piper went into crazy mode over you-know-who's death," Paige said.
"You know, that is officially bragging . . ." Phoebe said but Piper cut her off.
Paige grinned at Phoebe.
"And I thank you for stopping me from grieving over Prue's death for the rest of my life, but . . ." Piper said, but this time it was Paige's turn to interrupt.
"Oh no, not the 'but'," Paige said, partly playing around and partly complaining.
"And I thank you for respecting my feelings, but you just don't understand how it feels to lose someone so close and dear to your heart." By now, Piper's eyes were getting ready to burst with tears.
Phoebe made the 'clearing-throat-to-get-attention' noise. "Um, hello? I'm right here, your other sister who had to deal with this too. The one who couldn't do anything because I was in the Underworld to save your life the first time? Remember?!" Sometimes Phoebe just wanted attention.
"No! You just don't understand!" Piper pushed out her chair, stood up, and ran upstairs to her room.
Paige and Phoebe exchanged the 'uh-oh' glances at each other.
Meanwhile, at the Jamesons' house, a lot of family action was going on.
"I hate you Isabel! You're the meanest person in the world! Momma, Isabel kicked down my block mountain on purpose!"
"Did not! Momma, Brandon asked me to kick it down, so I did."
"That is on purpose!"
"Man, stop fighting! I'm not going to get my stupid homework done with you fighting!"
The first voice was Brandon. He's five years old and loves to get his siblings in big trouble.
The second voice was Isabel. She's six years old. Usually she's just like Brandon, but she can be really nice and will accept punishments that she knows she deserves.
The third voice was the fifteen year old, Johny. He can be very ridiculous with what he wears, what he says, how he says it, and how he acts. Although he is like this, (and not very good at it either), he does great in his school; Great Duke High School.
Of course, to take care of all this mess, there has to be an adult. There was a mother. Her name's Willa. She's a nice lady. She works very hard each and every day to support her family.
But Willa didn't only have three children. She had one more who you wouldn't notice was there. That child's name was Posten. She has dark hair, brown eyes, and tan skin. She is nine years old and is usually very quiet. She cares a lot about people and would do anything to keep her family safe.
Momma came in the living room and stopped all the arguing and complaining. She always smiles broadly at Posten for not making any commotion. But everyone knows that Willa wonders why Posten never gets in any fights or arguments.
Sometimes Posten is a little too quiet for anyone.
Phoebe and Paige knocked on Piper's door. When no one answered, the two girls walked in to find Piper sitting on her bed with her head in her hands.
Phoebe was nervous so she asked, "Sweetie, are you alright?"
Phoebe and Paige walked over to the depressed Piper and sat on either side of her.
Piper's hands were wet and you could see a few drops of tears on her pajama pants.
"Do you want to talk?" Phoebe was concerned now.
"No. I'm fine. It's just that I miss Prue so much. I can't stand to forget her. She would do anything to protect me or you. She just wanted to keep us safe. I wish we could somehow talk to her or see her again. If we could somehow communicate with her one more time, it would ease my pain a little." you could tell that Piper was trying to be strong and not cry in front of her sisters.
Phoebe and Paige looked sad for a moment and then all of a sudden Paige lit up and said, "The Book of Shadows!"
Piper and Phoebe had a puzzled look on their faces.
Paige decided to clue them in. "The Book of Shadows might have a spell or something in it that could get us to communicate with Prue. Besides, I kinda want to meet Prue myself."
"Now Paige. You know that you cannot use magic for personal gain. There are always strings attached to things like that. There are always consequences," Piper warned. She had a lot of experience arguing with skill.
"Well, this isn't personal gain. Instead of doing this for only one person, we're doing it for three people. You, Phoebe, and I all want to see Prue." Paige had a lot of experience too.
Phoebe really wanted to see Prue. "Yeah, Piper. Let's try it. We've never done it before."
"Okay. Fine. Majority rule. You win. But if there are strings attached, I'm blaming you two." Paige could tell that Piper wasn't sure about this plan.
The three witches headed upstairs to the attic where the Book of Shadows lay open on its lectern.
All of a sudden the pages in the book starting flipping to a page way in the back of the book.
"Grams? Are you there? Grams?" Piper called. Piper and Phoebe knew that it was always Grams who had been turning the pages of the book to a page that she thought could help the sisters when they needed it. Later, they told Paige about Grams when she saw the pages rapidly flipping.
After Piper and Phoebe called Grams a couple more times, they finally gave up.
When the sisters saw that the pages stopped turning, they walked over to the lectern and looked at the book. It was turned to a page that they had never seen before. And the writing looked like it was freshly inked.
They looked at the page more and they realized it did not have a title or name for the spell. Instead, it only had two paragraphs. One that was probably the spell that read:
We don't have anything to give,
Just please let us find our relative.
The other paragraph or sentence was at the bottom:
WARNING: Do not try to change anything in this spell because it could come out as a whole different thing if you do.
Phoebe and Paige knew that this warning would make Piper more nervous, so Paige started to flip to a random page.
But before she could even put the page down, Piper stopped her.
"Wait!" Piper said, sounding curious. "Maybe Grams was trying to get our minds off of Prue and on something else to do with one of Paige's charges-to-come."
"What?" Paige sounded surprised.
"Or . . . a demon is tricking us by setting a stage for Paige and splitting the power or three apart for any amount of time." Phoebe always went to the worst possible answer first.
"No, that can't be it. No. How about we just try this spell the way that it already is. Okay?" Piper didn't want to get into more mayhem.
"Alright. Fine." Phoebe is a person of adventure and risk.
"Okay." Paige always wanted to do magic as much as she could.
When Piper, Phoebe, and Paige got settled, they started the spell.
"We don't have anything to give, just please let us find our relative."
They chanted this a few more times then finally gave up. They got up and walked back downstairs.
"Oh well. We tried." By the way Phoebe murmured, you could tell that she was really disappointed. The same could be said about Paige's face.
By now, the sisters were exhausted, so they went on to bed to get a good night's sleep. But not for long.
"It is time Sabraxa, Niko said with a hissing voice.
"Yes master. I will leave as soon as I can," Sabraxa said back.
Sabraxa is the sister of the demon, Abraxas. Her goal is to find and kill the first child born of the Charmed Ones. Just a short while ago, Sabraxa and Niko received a very strong reading that that first born child had been discovered from a spell that one of the Charmed Ones had put on the child for protection.
Even though demons can't love, Sabraxa at least cared for Abraxas. And she knows that the Charmed Ones are the ones who killed him, so she wants revenge.
It is also her job and duty and not just her goal to kill the Charmed Ones' first born.
But even though she is Abraxas's sister, she does not have the same powers that Abraxas did. She wanted to show Abraxas how powerful she was with different powers.
So, for all these reasons, Sabraxa went back to Niko to tell him she was going to go but when she got to Niko, he put his hand up to stop her.
"Just a minute, Sabraxa," he said. "I will need you to do a favor for me and you will come back with honor. I need you to destroy the Charmed Ones once and for all."
This was a big task but she took it and shimmered out.
"Too bad she does not know what is coming," Niko said.
Please Review! and remember: review nicely. This is my first fanfic. And don't worry, I have more of the story to come! =)
