Chapter 1: A Special Pick-up
Jamie sat in history class barely listening to her teacher as he taught the history of the Salem witch trials. Really she didn't need to listen, she knew it all already. After all she wanted to know what had happened to her fellow witches and it was the root to the powers she had inherited from her mother. She also knew that sooner or later the teacher would ask her a question, he did it every time. It was his attempt at trying to catch her off guard and embarrass her in front of the class. He was did it, but it never work.
"So Miss Halliwell, what was the last name of the mother and daughter team who made most of the accusations about witchcraft?"
Right on cue, Jamie thought to herself. She was just about to answer when his voice filled her head.
"Jamie, we're back, come find us after school." Jamie knew everyone was waiting for an answer, but she could stop replay his voice over and over.
"Miss Halliwell, if you would pay attention maybe you would know that-"
"The family name was Putnam. The daughter who made most of the accusations was named Ann Putnam Jr., and the mother was Ann Putnam, and although you haven't mentioned it her maiden name was Carr."
"Well, yes, that's correct-" Jamie started tuning out the teacher again. She didn't understand how did Wyatt contact her? After all he and Chris had gone a month with out a word and now this. But, Jamie thought to herself, who am I to question the powers that bound me to them. Just then another voice came into her head.
"Damn right you don't question it. After all nobody can explain it or understand it." Jamie smiled to herself. Chris she thought, she was happy to know that they were both back.
Just then she felt a tap on her shoulder. She turned to her best friend Alex. "So when we're on the bus tonight I have an awesome story to tell you!"
Jamie smiled at Alex. She never understood how they were best friends. Alex didn't talk to her family if she could help it, where Jamie had to talk to her family or at least had to know she could if she needed to. Alex couldn't stand her older brothers and loved when they didn't come home, on the other hand Jamie fell to pieces when Wyatt and Chris would leave and she loved spending time with them.
"Sorry, I'm not taking the bus tonight. My brothers are back."
Alex looked at her puzzled. "But you just said this morning that you hadn't talked to them and you didn't know when they were coming home. Besides how do you know that they're home when you said this morning that you fought your cell at home?"
Shit, Jamie panicked, how the hell am I supposed to explain that I have a telepathic connection to my brothers without using the words; magic, telepathic, powers, or witch? "I just have a feeling."
Alex nodded. "They must be back. After all your gut hasn't been wrong in the ten years we've been BFFs."
Suddenly the bell rang and Jamie jumped up, grabbed her books, and was one of the first people out the door. She practically ran to her locker, shoved what she needed for the weekend in her backpack and headed for the main doors. Just as she got to the doors she felt someone grab her elbow and gently tug. She turned around to see Kerrie her cousin, who was the same age as her.
"Hey J, where you headed? You got a second?"
"Yeah I've got a second. The guys are back by the way, don't tell anyone though I don't know who knows."
"Really? How do you know?" Kerrie asked a little surprised, though she knew she shouldn't have been.
"They used our tele connection to tell me." Jamie liked that she could use the magic short forms with her cousin, it let them talk about magic anywhere. "So what did you need?"
"I assume you'll be at dinner tonight?" Jamie nodded, once a week the entire family got together at P3 for dinner, and Jamie never missed one. "Okay, well at some point we need to talk, I think I found something on him."
"Okay we'll talk tonight. I've got to go and find them." She then turned and headed back for the doors.
"Okay I will talk to you at dinner." Kerrie yelled after her.
"Sure thing Ker-bear. See ya tonight." Jamie yelled over her shoulder as she ran through the front doors.
Once she got outside Jamie stopped at the top of the steps and scanned the crowd for her brothers. Then she saw them at the back of the crowd, both leaning against a tree not looking at her but talking to watch other. Letting a smile rest on her lips Jamie ran down the stairs and worked her way through the crowd, and finally reach them. When she was about two meters away she stopped and starred at them. As if sensing that she was there Chris and Wyatt looked up and returned her stare.
Jamie felt her throat drying and her eyes getting itchy, both signs that she was about to cry. She just continued to stare at them through her tears. She brought her hands up to grasp the necklace they had given her before they left.
Jamie sat that the island in the kitchen doing her homework. When she heard the jingle in her ears and Wyatt calling her name. Jamie closed her eyes and concentrated on her brother to orb to him. When she opened her eyes she was standing in the living room. She put her hands on her hips and stared at both her older brothers.
"You couldn't have just come in the kitchen could you?"
Wyatt shook his head. "Sit down J, we need to talk to you."
Jamie who was slightly nervous sat as Wyatt sat beside her on the couch and Chris took the armchair at the end. Chris was the first to speak.
"J, Wy and I are leaving for a little bit to track down a demon."
Jamie could feel the tears in her eyes. Before she could say anything Wyatt spoke. "We don't know how long it'll take but we'll be back but until then here, this is for you."
Wyatt handed her a box. Jamie opened it and found a beautiful metal pendant at the end of a long piece of suede. Wyatt spoke again. "The pendant is the symbol of the charmed ones, the amethyst stones are for protection."
Chris continued. "You wear that all the time okay sis? It will protect you while we're gone."
End of Flashback
She held the pendant so tight she was sure that it was imprint itself on her palm. The three of them just stood there as tears ran down Jamie's cheeks. The only thing she could get out came out in a squeak.
"Wyatt? Chris? Are you really here?"
Chris pushed himself off the tree and walked toward her a little before stopping again. Jamie felt the tears now stream down her face and she ran to Chris and jumped into his open arms. He picked her pick and spun her around a bit, as he did she wrapped her arms around his neck and couldn't help the flashback to a night when she was little.
Jamie woke with a start. She had had another nightmare and she began to cry. "CHRIS!" She half sobbed, half yelled out his name. Right now she didn't care who woke up she just wanted to know that her big brother was alright, to know that it really was a dream.
Through her tears she saw the blue light, followed by a worried Chris., who immediately came over to her bed and wrapped her in a big hug. Jamie laid her head on his shoulder and continued to cry.
"Another nightmare J?" Jamie nodded against his shoulder. "Why don't we go to Wyatt's room and sleep there, all three of us?" Jamie again nodded against his shoulder. "Okay, hang on kiddo."
End of Flashback
Chris gently put Jamie back on the ground and held at arms length. "Hey kiddo, nice to see you too."
"I'm so glad you're both home." She looked over at Wyatt and then back to Chris, slightly worried. "You are back home for good right?"
Wyatt came up beside Chris. "Yeah we're back."
Jamie squealed again and jumped from Chris to Wyatt. After a few spins of his own Wyatt put he back on the ground. "Are we orbing home?" Jamie asked.
Wyatt and Chris both broke out laughing. Their dad had sent them weekly updates about the family like they did to let him know that they were okay. Leo had told them that Jamie had been really depressed since they left and it made them happy to know that they were now the reason she was happy.
Wyatt spoke between fits of laughter. "Well we were thinking that we would walk home and catch up. What do you think?"
"Sure." And with that the three siblings started on their way home.
