Piper ran downstairs worriedly and saw Cole wheel in the living room.
"What was that?" she asked.
Cole shrugged as he looked around. Piper spotted a whole in the window and groaned as she walked into the living room and saw the culprit on the floor. She picked it up and held it for Cole to see.
"A baseball" said Piper sighing. They heard the door shut and in came Leo with two bags of groceries. "Leo we have a broken window"
Leo grimaces as he surveyed the damage.
"Didn't Paige have a spell for that?" asked Leo.
"Ok ok" said Leo rolling his eyes. He looked to Cole who gave him a small smile. Leo had tried everything to make Cole comfortable but he knew that the only person that could do it would possibly never show up again. Paige's birthday was coming up in a couple weeks. Maybe she'll show up then. Time will tell…
"Leo what did you buy?" asked Piper.
"A bunch of stuff we needed and some Chinese food" said Leo knowing that was Cole's favorite take out dish.
Piper rolled her eyes and nodded. "Fine"
Leo and Piper started walking to the kitchen. Leo turned around and looked at Cole.
"Hey man you coming?"
Cole nodded and wheeled towards him. The thoughts that were running through his mind scared him. How could he ever think to kill himself? He couldn't do that to Evelyn or to Piper and Leo. He was family…finally.
Later that Night
Phoebe walked in the Manor holding her high heeled shoes. She had just come from a date and it had been a relatively good one. That was surprising. Lately she didn't feel the need to date especially what happened with Cole but her sister had advised that she get out of the house and not just for work. Whether a second date was in question she didn't know. She saw that the kitchen light was on and a voice. Phoebe walked in the kitchen and saw Paige holding her daughter lovingly and humming to her. Paige truly looked like an angel.
"Hi" said Paige looking at her.
"Hey" said Phoebe.
Evelyn looked to Phoebe with her sleepy eyes.
"Does this mean you're staying?" asked Phoebe.
"Not exactly" said Paige sighing. "They're playing games with me I think. There are a few times where I can get out but then I get called upon. I just wanted to visit my family and my daughter"
"Did Cole see you?" asked Phoebe. "He misses you, we all do"
"No he didn't" said Paige. "He needs to rest and I don't want to get his hopes high. It's better this way"
"But Paige he's depressed" said Phoebe.
"I know he is" said Paige. "He tried to kill himself this afternoon"
Paige nodded sadly and cast her eyes down. "He doesn't have hope. He believes he's weak and that even Evelyn doesn't need him. Now he has more of a will to stay alive but that doesn't mean that he doesn't think about it"
Phoebe leaned against the doorway.
"This is all my fault" said Phoebe. "Everything was good between the three of us and then I had to cast that spell. I'm so sorry Paige you have to believe me"
"I know you are Pheebs" said Paige as she rocked her daughter. "But Cole doesn't know that. He doesn't want to forgive you so easily. You have to earn his trust back Phoebe. He needs you I know he does. You two need eachother to get through this"
"Paige what do you mean?" asked Phoebe. "Cole and I are over. You're the only one in his heart"
"Phoebe I'm not saying get married to the guy" said Paige. "But you were his first and true love. You brought the Cole we love out of that shell and you will always be in his heart no matter what. He will always need you, he'll always love you"
Phoebe wiped her tears away. "So much wisdom from my younger sister"
Paige smiled. "Use it as much as he pulls away you need to push. Trust me"
"Ok" said Phoebe nodding.
"Alright" said Paige sighing. "I have to go. Don't tell anyone I was here"
Phoebe smiled confusedly as Paige put Evelyn in Phoebe's arms. Phoebe was even more surprised when Evelyn didn't even cry or squirm.
"She trusts that you mean well" said Paige. "Cole will see that and that will be the first step"
She kissed her sister on the cheek.
"Thank you Paige" said Phoebe.
Paige smiled and orbed away.
"Starting tomorrow" murmured Phoebe.
Tomorrow she would make things right.
