Ok I know I have a lot of stories out there that are not done but I will get to them. I was at work when I heard this song from Lakeside. I never heard of the group before but I like this song and this idea came into my head. I hated the episode wrestling with demons because I was unrealistic, so I rewrote the part when they did the fighting and changed directions.
This takes place in season 3 and during the episode wrestling with demons. It will have all four sisters.
Prue makes a deal she will regret for the rest of her life and even tries to take her own as Leo deals with great loss and Phoebe deals with lying to her oldest sister about Cole and is fighting to keep her oldest sister from killing herself. A secret is revealed about their mother and Sam that will change their destiny forever as Piper fights to stay alive in order to keep her soul from the source and keep her sisters alive.
The sound of blood - The trumpets
There is a link in my profile for the song. I also have a link to the sounds in the sky that have been going on this year and is happening in real life. There is now explanation for them, but I think it is just someone playing a elaborate prank, either way it sounds really cool and creepy. It could be a natural phenomenon or something else and I am going to play with the something else in this story.
There was a woman driving down the road in a Volkswagen bug as she was listening to the radio The song Bloodflies by Lakeside was playing as she was driving to a funeral of someone she did not really know.
Want to get your eyes and feel it for real
Be somebody awaken that I used to be
Wake up one day
Want to hear it
I want to be a little twisted one in a bohemian play
I want to feel your heart now keeping up my heartbeat
A Lady Torment such a candy, suffering and waiting
Leo bent over the casket and placed his forehead on the rounded gold top while the top of his hand rested a view inches away. He closed his eyes as a tear rolled down his cheek and landed on the shiny top as he whispered that he loved her.
Meanwhile Piper had her forehead resting on a dirt floor while on her knees and her hands pressed against the course sand. Her face was contorted in pain as she grunted while raising her head. Sweat mixed with blood ran down her dirt covered face as she raised her head as a man was raising his hands in the air as the crowd cheered. His body was a canvas for scares as his muscles glimmer as the light hit the sweat that work like a varnishing. Piper's breath caused the loss dirt to billow under her as she gathered the strength to get to one knee.
Will you take me under the red lights, silver girl
Will you bring me high with your lips and with your hands
Will you hunt me, or are you haunted
Do you want to grab me into oblivion
Give me a last dance
Give me just one last dance
With the bloodflies
Phoebe put her hand on Leo's shoulder as she approached the casket with a rose in her hand. He nodded as she gave him a sympathetic smile. Her eyes were bloodshot and her mascara was beginning to run as she put the rose on the aluminum frame that held her sister. Her lower lip quivered as she put her two fingers to her mouth and kissed them and placed them on the casket.
Piper finely rose and the crowd began to boo as the man lowered his arms and did a chuckle as a horn blew and she began to look around on the floor as he rushed to pick up his large ax that was sticking out of the dirt. The horn blew again and a portion of the floor opened as a small trap door raised a shotgun from a platform. The man saw it and pulled out his ax as Piper made a run for the gun.
Will you suck my blood out of me
Suck my blood out of me
Drunk with blood and tied to the cross with chains
Are you special or does the light just make the change
Are we hunting or are we haunted
Or are we just damned in our miserable existence
Give me a last dance
Give me just one last dance
With the bloodflies
Will you suck my blood out of me
Suck my blood out of me
Prue ran her hand a crossed the casket and could feel the wetness from Leo's tears as she got to the front of it. Black circles under her eyes were mixing with the black mascara that was running. She put a rose on the top with Phoebe's as she used her other hand to try to calm her heart by placing it on her chest. She whispered she was sorry as she could hear a odd sound in the distance that sounded like a horn. She has heard it before and just blew it off to a car going by.
A man in the crowd was sitting on a bouncy and closed his eyes while Piper ran for the gun. The man she was fighting knew he could not get to her in time and with both hands, tossed the ax right at her chest. Piper picked up the gun and pumped it as the ax was coming right at her. She dove to the side and fired and hoped it would connect as it only had one shot. Her opponent had his hands outstretched as his eyes widened when the ax missed her by a hair and he saw the flash of the gun. He was hit right in the stomach and went flying backwards as she landed on her side.
Leo, Phoebe and Prue stood in front of a empty spot at the mausoleum as two men put a metal plate to cover the opening. The name Piper Halliwell born 1973 to 2001 was engraved on it. They drilled the plate in as tow other men placed the casket into the empty spot from behind. There was a woman behind them who blew out some candles, "Blessed be," she said and the others repeated. Cole waited for Phoebe outside with Darrel as a redhead woman walked up to them.
Piper was on her back while trying desperately to get her breath back while the man on the balcony opens his eyes and tried to contain his worry. Two men brought a stretcher and lifted Piper up and put her on it. She was in and out of consciousness as her lips stuck together because of the lack of moisture. She was whispering someone's name but it was impossible to make out over the crowed and her lack of voice. She was bleeding from her abdomen and legs as they took her away.
"Looks like your fighter does not know when to quit," a man said next to the man on the balcony.
"She has made me a lot of money so I hope she never quits," he said and gave a small smile as he started to leave but stopped to talk to a older man. "Begin the healing immediately," he said and the older man nodded.
Phoebe and Prue came out of the mausoleum as Leo orbed away when the coast was clear.
"Hay you ok?" Cole asks Phoebe as he put his arm around her.
"No this was hard really hard," she replied as she put her head into his chest.
"Um sorry to interrupted but I just wanted to give my condolences," the redhead woman said.
"Oh its ok and thank you, how did you know Piper?" Prue asks while using a napkin to wipe her face.
"I used to go to her club all the time it is a cool place," she replied.
"What's your name?" Phoebe asks.
"Paige – Paige Mathews," she replied and put out her hand to shake Phoebe's. "Are you ok?" she asks as Phoebe looked like she was going to pass out while holding her hand.
"Fine I'm fine," Phoebe replied rapidly.
"Ok well I'm sorry again," Paige said and walked away and to her car.
"Phoebe what happened?" Prue asks as she knew a premonition when she saw one.
"I don't know yet but we need to get home," Phoebe replied.
The man stood outside the cage as the healer put a black tar like substance on Piper's leg and abdomen. He began to remember when she was first brought to him over 1 year ago.
One year earlier
Piper, Phoebe and Prue walked out of the elevator while holding each other as the acceleration of the fall was a little unexpected.
"Remind me again why we are doing this?" Piper asks as she walked out with them.
"Because your sisters have a thing for saving bad boys," Phoebe replied.
"If I die before I get married, I'm gonna be really mad at the two of you," Piper said while fixing her hair that was a little disheveled. "Okay, I'd still like to point out that I have a really bad feeling about this," she continued as they saw two wrestlers on a wrestling mat. The wrestler holds the guy on the mat and a hole opens up beneath him. The guy falls into the flames.
"Next," Kellman said and Tom goes into the ring.
"Tom," Prue said and she starts to walk over but Phoebe and Piper stop her.
"Hey, hey, hey, hey!" Piper said.
"Whoa!" Phoebe said.
"Are you nuts?" Piper asks.
"Maybe we need to go back up top and rethink this whole thing," Phoebe suggested.
"Oh, well, you know what, Phoebe? That would be such a great plan if Tom weren't seconds away from annihilation," Prue replied.
"Okay, so we're supposed to risk our lives to save a demon? Of course, it's okay now that it's your demon, right?" Phoebe asks.
"The thing is, isn't it silly for the three of us to sacrifice ourselves for one guy, whatever kind of guy he was?" Piper asks.
"Alright, what kind of witches would we be if we started playing the odds, if we started picking and choosing our innocents? I mean, this is what we do, isn't it?" Prue Replied.
"Then let's do it," Phoebe said.
"Okey," Prue said.
"But," Piper said.
"Tom," Prue said and the men start to run over to them and Piper freezes them all but Kellman, Tom and the wrestler. Kellman makes a ball with three sharp blades sticking out of it hovering near Tom.
"Your little parlour tricks may work on some of the newer boys but the rest of us will be a little tougher," Kellman said and he pulls up his sleeve to reveal eight chevrons on his arm. "Now, you see that? Now, that's what I call a quick recovery, huh? Knocked the humanity right out of him and we got a perfect kill for him too."
"Uh, not if we put him on ice. Kind of hard to make him kill an innocent now, huh?" Piper said.
"Unfreeze him," Kallman said and starts to walk towards Piper.
"Nope, Ah! If anything happens to me, he's gonna stay that way," Piper said as Phoebe walks over to her.
"Is that true?" Phoebe whispers.
"Yes," Piper whispered back.
"Your bluffing," Kallman said.
"Are we?" Prue said.
"I'm listening," Kallman said.
"Alright, how about three witches in exchange for Tom's soul?" Prue said.
"Prue!" Phoebe said in disbelief.
"If we win, we get Tom back. If we lose, you get Tom and the three of us. Risk one to gain four," Prue said confidently.
"You really think you can win in the ring?" Kallman asks.
"Well, you know, we don't really have much of a choice. But if we do win, we don't go into the training program. We go free," Prue said and before Kallman could reply a man came out of the shadows.
"I have a better offer," the man said as Kallman looked at him.
"Who the hell are you?" Kallman asks.
"Not important, here is the offer if you lose I get one of you," he replied.
"Ok I'm a little confused we just made a deal," Prue said.
"And I am changing it, if you lose I get one to train for the arena," he said.
"Could we have a moment," Piper said and pulled her sisters out of ear shut.
"What's changed Piper?" Prue asks.
"The fact that he doesn't even know that guy and why would he take one instead of three?" Piper asks.
"It doesn't matter we are going to win," Prue said and started to walk away but Piper grabbed her.
"Prue you don't know that," Piper said.
"Yes I do Piper now listen you need to keep them froze so Phoebe and I will do the fighting," Prue said.
"Wait who will be the one who goes with him if we lose?" Phoebe asks.
"No one is going with him Phoebe because we are not going to lose," Prue replied sternly.
"Did I already mention I have a bad feeling about this," Piper said with a awkward smile.
"Lets just get this over with," Prue said as she walked back to the men.
"Well?" the unknown man asks.
"If we lose, which we wont then you can take me," Prue said.
"Prue!" Piper said.
"No I want to one that will not be fighting," he said and Piper closed her eyes tight as her stomach was about to overturn.
"Fine," Prue said and headed for the wrestling mat.
"Prue," Piper said as Phoebe gave her a concerned look.
"Piper it will be fine just keep them frozen," Prue said as she and Phoebe stepped in.
"Yeah its not your life on the line," Piper said.
"Okay, our powers seem to have a limited effect on these guys. So we're gonna have to outmaneuver them," Prue said as she got her self ready.
"And outsmart them and keep our shoulders off the mat. Piece of cake," Phoebe said.
"So I guess we're as ready as we're ever gonna be," Prue said.
"Uh, Prue, there's one more thing," Phoebe said.
"Now? Now is your perfect moment?" Piper said as her panic was increasing.
"Piper, we might die in there," Phoebe said.
"That doesn't mean you should tell her now," Piper said.
"Okay, tell me what?" Prue asks.
"Cole is still alive. I never really vanquished him," Phoebe replied.
"What?" Prue asks angrily.
"By the way, since you're witches, I think it's only fair that I even the playing field," Kallman said and
two very large wrestlers come out.
"Alright, and people think this is entertainment," Prue said as the men entered.
"Prue…" Phoebe said and touches Prue's arm and she pulls away.
"Ooh!" Prue said.
"Are we okay?" Phoebe asks nervously.
"Not by a long shot. Look, Phoebe, if you waited till now to tell me about Cole in hopes that we would die and you wouldn't have to deal with me, you have another thing coming," Prue replied and walked away from her.
"I think that went well," Phoebe said to Piper.
"Alright, I am going to win this fight and save your ass. That way I can kick it myself later," Prue said and jumps up and kicks both of the wrestlers in the head.
The fight goes back and forth until Prue and Phoebe are put down on the mat with their shoulders pinned. The unknown man smiles as he sees that he may win the bet.
"Why her, she is the middle and hardly capable of fighting?" Kallman asks as Piper was too busy yelling at her sisters to get up.
"I have my reasons," he replied.
"Come on Prue get up!" Piper yelled as the floor began to open and the heat filled the room.
"Get off of me!" Phoebe yelled but could not budge from under the massive musclebound man on top of her. Prue was also struggling as she felt the pit of her stomach rage against her.
"Something's wrong," Prue said.
"Enough!" the man said and the two wrestlers stood up but kept a firm hold on Prue and Phoebe.
"We didn't lose," Prue said as she struggled to get away from him.
"Yes you did, the rules are simple if you get pinned for longer then 3 seconds, you lose," he said and walked over to Piper who was going pale.
"No that is not what we agreed," Phoebe said while she too was trying to get away from the man that held her.
"I thought you knew wrestling," he said as he took Piper's arm.
"Prue," Piper said as their eyes met as Piper tried to freeze him but nothing was happening.
"The original agreement was if you died then you would go into the training program, not if you lose. You should really learn to listen," he said and shimmered away with Piper as Phoebe and Prue stood stunned.
"Oh my god," Phoebe said as the men let them go.
"Your free to go but Tom stays with me," Kallman said as he put his arm around Tom.
"Prue what the hell just happened?" Phoebe asks and Prue just shook her head a little.
"I don't know but we can fix this, we need to get back to the manner," Prue said and headed for the elevator.
"What do we tell Leo?" Phoebe asks as she followed her.
"We tell him we will fix it," Prue said.
The unknown man shimmered into a dark cavern that had a cage in the corner.
"Let go of me," Piper said while taking in her surroundings.
"Welcome to your new home," he said as another man came walking in. He was in his 40s and was dressed in something that looked like it belong in ancient Japan and stopped while looking at both of them. "Consider this my payment," the unknown man said.
"You want to exchange her for your debt?" the other man asks.
"Yes," he replied.
"Excuse me but I am not for sale," Piper said while backing away from them.
"Your sister lost the bet so you are for sale," he replied," Well Sesu?"
"Fine it will do," Sesu replied and open the cage.
"Good, have fun," the other man said and pushed Piper into the small cage.
"Oh it will be fun to vanquish your sorry ass," Piper said as the door slammed shut.
"She is a witch?" Sesu asks.
"Yes but not very powerful at least not as powerful as her older and younger sister," he replied.
"Is she a charmed one?" Sesu asks as he looked at her through the Cage.
"Does it matter?"
"No but I should get a lot of bets against her," he replied.
Just as the other man left anther came in flames wearing a hod.
"Is it true?" the source asks.
"Yes," Sesu replied.
"Give her to me," the source said as Piper backed into the corner of the cage.
"No she belongs to me now," Sesu said and the source formed a fireball and tossed at him, but it just operated once it hit him.
"Sorry you know how this works," Sesu said and shrugged his shoulders. The source sneered as he walked over to the cage.
"If your down here then your sisters are free for the picking, maybe I should pay them a visit," the source said and started to walk away.
"Wait," Piper said and went to the front the cage.
"What would keep you from going after them?" Piper asks and the source gave a half smile.
"Your soul would be a good start," he replied.
"No," Piper said.
"Here is the deal, I will not go after them or any of my demons if you give me your soul if you die in the arena," he said and Piper stood silent for a moment.
"But only if I die in the arena, not anywhere else," she added.
"Fine but you will not last long," he said and put out his pale hand with long black fingernails.
"Fine," she said and put her hand in his. She felt a cold chill go up her spine.
