"Yum!" I said licking chocolate chips off the spoon, "Piper, you make great cookies."
"Yes, I know the cravings." Piper said, putting a tray of cookies in the oven, "I miss cooking here."
"You do know you're welcome any time." I smiled.
Piper smiled too, "Thank you, but when this baby comes, you're going to be looking for a way out." She said.
"Piper, you're scaring me." I chuckled.
"Where are Wyatt and Chris anyways?" Piper asked.
"Well, they're holed up in the nursery." I explained, "They're seriously trying to get it done."
"They don't have long." Piper said, "You're not ready to get it done?"
"I'm just...ready for this kid to be here." I said quickly, "Is that bad?"
"No." Piper said, "There were many times when all I..." but she stopped.
I noticed her eyes were fixed on something behind me and I felt hands grab my head and suddenly, everything went black.
"So, mom, what happened again?" Wyatt asked angrily.
Piper, distraught, replayed the moments back in her head, "We were just talking and having a good time and a demon came in..."
"Shimmer?" Chris asked.
"No, puff of smoke." Piper said, "And he...he electrified Drake's head and Drake passed out and..."
"Okay, so, we scry." Chris said.
"Not if it's cloaked." Wyatt said, "Dammit!"
"Wyatt, just calm down, we're going to find him." Piper said.
"Yeah, bro, we'll try to scry and if it doesn't work, we'll do something else." Chris said, walking out of the room.
Piper looked to Wyatt, who was very distraught, "Wyatt, I'm sorry. It all happened so fast." She said.
"It's not your fault, ma." Wyatt said, "What am I doing? I need to be doing something." He said.
"I'll call your aunts and see if they have any ideas." Piper said, leaving the room.
"Fuck!" Wyatt said, causing plates to fly off the counter, "Damn." He said.
"You were sleeping daddy." A child's voice said.
I opened my eyes to see a mixed little girl standing in front of me and I realized I was laying on my stomach, so I jumped up and noticed that I wasn't pregnant.
"What's wrong, daddy?" the child asked.
I looked at her with confusion, "Nothing." I said.
"Charlotte." An older Wyatt said. His hair wasn't cut and it was shoulder length, but in a ponytail and he was growing out his goatee. He looked so hot, "Leave your daddy alone."
"But Matthew is teasing me!" Charlotte whined, "He says the demons are going to come and the Elders will take us away!"
Wyatt came over and picked the little girl up, "You tell him if he doesn't stop teasing you, I'm going to ground his orbs." He smiled, kissing her on the cheek.
Charlotte smiled a big, beautiful smile and Wyatt put her down and she ran out of the room, excited.
"You okay, honey?" Wyatt asked, lying beside me, "You look like you just saw a ghost."
"Wyatt...what's going on?" I asked, "Why aren't I pregnant?"
"You're pregnant?" Wyatt asked.
"I was." I said, "When did Charlotte..."
"Are you okay, babe?" Wyatt asked, looking at me, concerned.
"Yeah, I'm just..." I yawned, "Charlotte walked me up."
"I'm sorry, I thought they were in their rooms." Wyatt said.
I just stared.
"Maybe you should call in today." Wyatt said, "We could have some...alone time."
"Why, Mr. Halliwell, are you trying to seduce me?" I smirked.
Wyatt kissed me, but stopped, "Oh, sorry babe, my charge needs me." He said, "Can you get the kids ready?"
"Yeah, of course." I said, gaining a kiss on my forehead.
Wyatt smiled as he orbed away. He was so happy.
I got up and walked through the Manor and noticed the subtle changes. The wallpaper and general feel of the Manor was still there, but furniture had been replaced and pictures of our families were hung everywhere. Suddenly, a boy and a girl came from inside a door and ran around me. I stopped, a little shocked at the little blond boy that was running around me. Matthew.
"You guys." I said, still a little shocked.
"Daddy, he's still bothering me!" Charlotte said, stopping.
"She came in my room and started it!" Matthew said.
"You guys need to learn to get along." I said, "Now, both of you, go and get dressed."
"Do we have to go to school?" Matthew asked.
"Yes." I smiled, "Now, go."
"I scried." Chris said.
"And." Wyatt said.
"Nothing." Chris said, causing a large sigh to come from Wyatt, "But, bro, I'm on it."
"Wyatt, just be calm, we'll find him." Paige said.
"No, Wyatt is right to be freaked out." Phoebe said.
"Phoebe!" Paige said.
"Well, this looks bad. Real bad." Phoebe said, "Who knows what's going on?"
"Phoebe." Piper said.
"She's right." Wyatt said, "Who knows what he's going through."
In the future, I leaned over the counter, kissing Wyatt passionately. Future Wyatt hadn't lost his touch. Or kiss. His lips were just the best thing.
"You get the kids ready?" Wyatt asked.
I nodded, "I did." I smiled.
"So, you want to make love?" Wyatt asked.
"Now? What about the kids?" I asked.
"Well, they're off to school in a few minutes, that leaves us all day." Wyatt smiled.
"All day?" I smiled, thinking about the proposal, "What about work?"
"Work can wait." Wyatt smiled, "Lovin can't."
I chuckled, "Lovin." I smirked.
"What do you want me to call it?" Wyatt asked.
I just smiled.
"What's happening?" Caleb asked, standing beside his seer, who seemed to be in a deep concentration.
"I am setting up the betrayal." The Seer smiled.
"My, how I love betrayals." Caleb said, "The leaders are waiting."
"I am trying my hardest, but there's some block." The Seer said.
"A block? Interesting." Caleb said, wide-eyed.
"Annoying." The Seer said, "He's experiencing something."
"You can't see it?" Caleb asked.
The Seer frowned, "I set the betrayal in motion, but the block is keeping me out." She said.
"Any way to speed it up?" Caleb asked.
"He must be weakened." The Seer explained, "There is no other way."
"Be careful not to kill him." Caleb said quickly.
The Seer looked at him oddly.
"I want him to survive long enough to watch his family die." Caleb smirked.
"Pahras!" Melinda shouted as she stepped into the house. I walked around the corner, still trying to figure out what was going on. I was in the Manor and I was older. I had kids. Wyatt was still my husband. The Manor held the Book of Shadows, which seemed to attract Halliwells. Little Henry, Pandora, and Paige's other twin had been there before heading off to college and work. Phoebe's oldest daughter, Ladybug, had come, but her others hadn't showed yet. Now Melinda was here with a bag in hand.
"Hey, Mel." I said, hugging her, "What's up?"
"I brought the stuff." She smiled, sitting the bag on the dining room table.
"The stuff?" I asked.
"Yeah, you know, the pregnancy test." Melinda said, looking me over, "Are you still nauseous?"
I thought I was about to fall, "I'd say so." I said.
"Are you okay?" Melinda asked.
I looked at her, "I'm pregnant?" I asked.
"You are?" Melinda asked.
"Am I?" I asked.
"I don't know, you just said you were!" Melinda said.
"Give me the test!" I said, snatching it.
"Yeah, I know that snatch." Melinda said, then thought about it, "You know, the way you grabbed the...thing, go pee on it already!"
"Right." I said, heading upstairs.
"What are they doing?" Wyatt asked.
"Oh, I remember this." Piper said.
"What is it?" Chris asked.
"He's got him in that trance." Piper said, "It happened to me, they tried to get me to relinquish my powers."
"What is Caleb doing?" Chris asked.
"I don't know, but I really don't like it." Wyatt said about to step forward.
Piper caught him, "Wyatt, this is a trap." He said.
"I don't care." Wyatt said, walking out into the open. As he did, fireballs flew past him, nearly taking him out! He looked up and the fireballs were frozen in place as Piper and Chris walked out with him.
"Told ya!" Piper said.
"Thanks, mom." Wyatt said, waving his hand and causing the fireballs to fly back at the demons!
"Pah..." Wyatt said, but before he could get the rest out, Caleb punched him, "You son of a..."
"Watch your mouth!" Caleb said intensely
"Let my husband go." Wyatt said.
"Get against the wall!" Caleb commanded them to line up on the wall, "He was my brother first."
"You're sick!" Wyatt spat.
"I'm quite healthy." Caleb said, "As a matter of fact, I'm pretty powerful. First born and all."
"Sire..."The Seer said.
"Not now!" Caleb said.
"Sire!" The Seer said.
"What is it?!" Caleb shouted, looking back to see Phoebe's foot!
"Positive." Melinda said.
"Yeah." I said, stunned, "That's...three?"
"Yeah." Melinda said.
"At least I'm married." I said.
"Yeah." Melinda said.
"But Mel...duck!" I said, seeing the fireball coming at us, but it was too late! Melinda was hit and flew across the room, crashing into the grandfather clock! I looked around for something to vanquish him with, but I couldn't. Wyatt and Chris orbed in beside me. The demon shimmered out.
"You're pregnant?" Wyatt asked, looking at the pregnancy test.
"Melinda!" Chris said, running over to her.
In all the confusion, the demon shimmered back in and stabbed Chris in the back!
"Chris!" I shouted as the demon hopped into the air and sent a fireball that went right through Wyatt and he fell to the floor! I just stared and the demon threw a fireball at me!
I woke up.
"You're awake." Phoebe said.
"What happened?" I asked.
"Your brother." Wyatt said, "We've got to stop him."
"I think we've got bigger problems." I said quickly.
