A chair flew across the room, crashing into the wall! A lamp crashed to the floor along with a few picture frames! Wyatt was on a rampage while Chris, Paige, and Phoebe watched it all happen. Bianca lay on the couch, watching too.
"Wyatt." Phoebe said loudly.
"I should have killed him!" Wyatt shouted, "I'm going to strangle him after I throw him around a few times. This is the second time!"
"He's not going to hurt him, not from what you told us." Paige said.
"Oh, somebody's going to get hurt!" Wyatt raged.
Chris walked over to the bloody Bianca, "Are you alright?" he asked.
"Bloody." Bianca said, looking over her shirt, "Just got tortured."
"You're okay now." Chris said.
"You should be helping your brother find Drake." Bianca said, shivering a little.
"I will." Chris said, "After I know you're alright."
"I'm good." Bianca said, "Chris."
"Yeah." He said.
"I'm not a demon, I'm a witch." She said.
Wyatt and the sisters looked at her in shock.
"A witch?" Chris asked, "Why didn't you tell me?"
"I'm a Phoenix." She said, "An assassin witch."
Chris looked at her in shock. Wyatt had a looked of shock on his face, but soon it turned to a look of realization and he turned to the sisters.
"You knew." Wyatt said.
Christ turned to them, "What?" he asked, "You knew?"
Phoebe sighed, "When you came back from the future, she came after you." She explained, "She took you back to Wyatt. You were engaged."
Chris and Bianca looked at each other.
"Chris, I'm so sorry." Bianca said.
Chris felt like he couldn't take anymore, "You know what, it's fine. We need to find Drake." He said.
"But she did save you, she died to save you." Paige said.
Chris said nothing, he just walked past them, Wyatt right behind him.
"I think he's mad." Paige said.
"Ya think." Phoebe said, following the boys.
"You can't keep me here." Piper said, straining against the chains, "Where is he?"
"Piper, Piper, Piper." Cole said, "Doesn't that mouth of yours ever take a rest?"
"Cole, I swear to God, if you hurt him or the baby I'll send you to Hell myself!" Piper said.
"Someone really needs to shut you up, lady." Cole smiled.
"What happened to all that bull you said before, about being good?" Piper asked.
"He?" Piper asked.
"Oh Hell, you caught me." Cole said, morphing into Caleb, "I slipped up."
"You son of a bitch!" Piper said.
Caleb slapped her viciously, "My mother wasn't a bitch!" he said, spitting a little, "You're a little bitch, you know that?"
"Kiss my ass." Piper spat.
"I'm going to enjoy breaking you, Piper." Caleb said, "You see, I've got all these people under my power...I could easily have you go blow up that annoying son of yours or those sisters, or, maybe that husband."
Piper just stared.
"No, I'm different." Caleb said.
"Know what you were thinking?" Caleb said, "I don't know, maybe I'm getting another power."
"Maybe it's cause the sane part of you is thinking the same thing." Piper said.
"Me and you need to have a little heart to heart." Caleb smiled, "It all started when you first met my mother..."
Wyatt stood in the attic, flipping through the Book of Shadows. He was so frustrated! He loved Drake and it was tearing him apart not being able to be with him, especially when they were so close to having the baby.
"We can help you, Wyatt." Odin said behind him.
Wyatt turned to see three Elders standing behind him. He knew that as his parents had described them. Sandra, the petite blonde, Odin, the old guy, and Kevin, who looked teenaged. Wyatt wondered what they were doing down here.
"We're here to help." Sandra said.
"Help? You know where he is?" Wyatt asked.
"We know he's in the Underworld." Kevin said, "Rumblings say that he wants your baby."
"He's campaigning for Source." Odin said, "We have a proposition for you."
"I'm listening." Wyatt said.
As I woke up, I found myself tied to a table. I tried to blow them up, orb away, or break them manually, but I couldn't.
"Magical bonds." Peter said.
I looked at him angrily, "You better be glad you're under a spell!" I said.
"You can't break them." Peter said, "I'm sorry."
"No, you're not, but you will be." I said.
"He just wants an heir." Peter said.
"An heir?" I asked, "Why would he need an heir? And why am..." I realized what he had said, "He wants my baby?"
"Yes." Peter said, "We're going to be a family."
"You can't have my baby." I said.
"Not really your choice." Peter said, walking over, showing the blade of the knife he was holding.
"What are you going to do with that?" I asked.
"C-section." Peter smiled, plunging the knife at my stomach!
"Then Drake got pregnant." Caleb said, "Imagine that! My family is gone and he's building a new one. Guilt-free."
"None of that was his fault." Piper said, "Or yours."
"Mine? Of course it's not mine." Caleb said.
"Sounds like you blame yourself. It wasn't just your family, it was a family. Families take care of each other." Piper said.
"I don't blame me." Caleb lied, "I blame you."
"Me?" Piper asked.
"Offer poor, lowly Drake a room..."
"You were gone." Piper said, "I never even thought you want..."
"But you did?" Piper asked.
"Truth is, I'm really angry! My mother had an incurable disease and she was trying to stay, but you and your family said it was wrong! It wasn't, she just wanted more time." Caleb said.
"I loved your mother too, but if she wanted more time, then she should have been around more." Piper said.
"How dare you!" Caleb said, "My mother was a great mom! My dad, when he was around, was a great dad! I was a great big brother, protected my kid brother whenever I could."
"Who protected you?" Piper asked.
"I protect me." Caleb chuckled, "Drake never needed me, he always had you and your family."
"It's not too late for you to join our family." Piper said.
"Sorry." Caleb smiled, "Got my own."
"Ugh!" Phoebe said, lurching over behind him.
Caleb turned to see the sisters, "Now it's a party!" he said.
"Caleb!" Paige said, waving her hand to the wall and causing Caleb to orb out and fly into the wall!
Paige and Phoebe ran to Piper, "Are you okay?" Phoebe asked.
"Peachy, now break these things so I can kick that little snot's ass!" Piper groaned.
"What the fu..." Peter said as the athame bent upon touching the skin.
"Oh God, thank you!" I smiled.
Wyatt showed up beside me, "Baby, are you okay?" he asked.
Chris waved his hand, causing Peter to fly away and hit the cave wall!
"I'm good. What took you so long?" I smiled.
"It was hard tracking you." Chris said, looking around.
"Paige and Phoebe are on it." Wyatt said.
"What's with the crazy knife trick?" I asked.
Wyatt looked at me oddly, then continued to untie me, "I don't know." He said.
I kissed Wyatt, "We've got to go." I said.
"Yeah, I think I feel someone coming!" Wyatt said.
"That's the baby." I said.
Chris and Wyatt both looked at me, "What!" they both said.
"My water just broke!" I said impatiently.
"Push!" Phoebe said.
"What the fuck do you think I'm doing?!" I shouted. My voice echoed through the Manor as I sat on the dining room table, pushing my child out. I wasn't exactly sure how it was going to come.
"Wyatt, you ready?" Leo asked.
Wyatt just nodded.
"Take him out of me!" I screamed.
The Sisters, Leo, Chris, Bianca, and Warren stood by, in awe. Wyatt raised his hand, "Matthew!" he shouted. I shrieked as my stomach opened up and the baby levitate into the air, surrounded by orbs. Wyatt reached out and grabbed him, then cut umbilical cord. Phoebe took him and cleaned him up a little, then handed him to me. I just stared at his dark hair, wondering what happened to the blonde from my vision, but I just smiled. It was all great.
"Look at what you did!" Piper said excitedly, hugging Wyatt, who was dumbfounded.
I looked down at him, "Wyatt Matthew Halliwell, Jr." I smiled.
Wyatt kissed my forehead and looked down at him. As we just watched the baby, I felt as happy as I ever felt.
