Truly Not Evil (Quick little one shot that I couldn't get out of my head)
"You guys can't do this to me! I'm not a super! This makes no sense!" I shouted at my sisters who were talking to the principal of Sky High.
"We know that Miss Halliwell, but you have powers, and while you can train here in your potions and spells, your powers are another story and we would like to help you with them." Principal Powers explained.
"Plus, with you developing a new power, they really could be of assistance, don't you think? Plus you'll be able to have friends who you can actually talk with about your powers. It's not an option, you're going, and so you may as well try and enjoy it." Prue insisted.
"Go get dressed." Piper spoke and I groaned, running upstairs and tossing on some red skinny jeans and a black veil brides tank top. I then grabbed my bag, filled it with my new books for my classes, and pulled on my combat boots.
"Let's get this over with." I was given the coordinates of the school so I knew exactly where to go and shimmered to the front door. I got my schedule and principal Powers walked me to Mr. Medulas class herself.
"Sorry for the interruption. You've got a new student Mr. Medula." She explained.
"Ah, yes, Halliwell, you may sit next to Mr. Peace. Raise your hand please Peace." I saw a boy in the back of the room roll his eyes before raising his hand and I went and sat beside him.
"I'm Peyton." I introduced and he looked at me for a moment before responding.
"Warren." He grunted.
"Not much of a talker?" He didn't even look at me. "Do you just want me to shut up?"
"First time I open my mouth in my new school and I've already made someone hate me, this is why I didn't want to come here." I muttered to myself, but I knew he heard it as I pulled out my book and started the reading.
"Hey, I don't hate you. I'm sorry, I just don't really talk to people."
"Oh, okay…" I sighed, beginning the work and I could see he was having some kind of internal debate with himself.
"Do you need some help?" He offered and I couldn't help but smile.
"I would love that, I have no idea what's going on. This is really different than the science I'm used to." I explained and he nodded, beginning to explain everything. We went on like that for the rest of the class until the teacher stepped out of the room.
"Look Speed. Peace found himself a girlfriend." A tall boy laughed making the class snicker. Warren ignored them and I tried to as well as we finally finished the work. "Better get a fire retardant suit for your more intimate activities." I was starting to get pissed off at the fact that most of the people in the room were laughing. "If you want a villain then you're set babe." I looked up at him and glared before sliding slightly behind Warren and moving my hands, hoping my powers cooperated today, effectively blowing his books to smithereens.
Everyone jumped back just as the bell rang and I grabbed Warren's arm, pulling him from the room. "Don't listen to them. They're all assholes." I told him as I stopped at my locker, dropping off my books and grabbing my money. "Want to sit with me at lunch…and show me where the cafeteria is…?"
He chuckled slightly before pulling me along down the hallway into the lunch room and sitting at an empty table after getting our food.
We sat together all of lunch talking, he told me why Lash was picking on me, all about his father and how people think he's going to turn out just like him, also why he hates some kid named Will so much since Will's dad locked his father up. "Hey, you're not him okay? What he does doesn't dictate what you're going to do." He looked at me as if he was trying to decide whether or not to believe me when all of a sudden I was drenched in water and someone's lunch.
"Oh my god! I'm so sorry!" I looked up to see a scrawny freshman stuttering in front of me when Warren stood up. "Please let's not do this?"
"You think you can do whatever you want just because your name is Stronghold?!" Uh oh…
"Look, I'm sorry that my dad put your dad in jail but-"
"Nobody talks about my father." He growled and I watched as his hands caught flames before he started throwing fire balls at Will. He chased Will under a table until Will finally had enough and lifted the table off the ground which I quickly realized wasn't normal for him. He then tossed my friend across the room making him crash into the table.
"Hey! Leave him alone!" I yelled trying to stop him from going after Warren again but he just shoved me aside, of course with his new found strength I flew into the cafeteria doors, smashing them to pieces, before colliding with the floor.
"Don't Touch Her!" I opened my eyes to see Warren light up again just before Will broke a fire extinguisher putting the fire out as Principal Powers walked up. I was taken quickly to the nurse.
"You have a fractured collar bone, but other than that it's all bumps and bruises, you'll be sore for a few days. Now go on to room 300, Principal Powers wants you in detention." I sighed before doing as she said and walking into a room which contained Warren and Will.
"Hey, are you alright?" Warren asked and I nodded painfully.
"I have a broken collar bone, and 90% of my body is bruised but I'm fine." I was stunned to say the least when I felt him pull me onto his lap and bury his head into my neck.
"You scared me."
"Hey…its okay, I'm fine." I promised him, hugging him tightly.
"I told you I was evil, I've known you for 3 hours and you've already gotten hurt."
"Hey!" I scolded just as the bell rang for the end of the day and Will took off quickly. "You're not evil!" I grabbed my bag from the floor just as a brilliant idea popped into my head. "Can you hang out today? I have something that might be able to help…and I would really like to tell you some stuff about me."
"Yeah, sure, I can put off the screaming my mom's going to put me through when I get home."
I chuckled. "Well we're going to my house, so you're going to get to see the screaming match between Prue and me."
He looked down at me confused as we got to my locker and I grabbed my homework. "Prue?"
"Oh, my sister. That's one thing about me, I live with my 3 older sisters, Prue, Piper and Phoebe."
"Prue, Piper, Phoebe and Peyton, wow." He chuckled.
"Yup, my mom loved the letter P apparently. She died just after I was born, our dad left a while before that so they take care of me since our Grams died 4 years ago."
"I'm sorry. That sucks." I shrugged.
"Yeah, I mean they're my sisters and I love them but they piss me off sometimes. Like today, forcing me to leave my school to go to some flying school in the sky, but I guess I'm okay with it, I got to meet you right?" He smiled down at me as we walked down the hallway and outside where I took his hand. "We're not getting on a bus. Hold on tight, you may start feeling light headed." I then shimmered from the school, landing right outside my house where he stumbled slightly before catching himself. "Come on, looks like my sisters are gone." I told him as we walked in the door. "I want to show you-Cole?" I cut myself off as I saw my sister's demon boyfriend on the couch.
"Hey Peyton, are you allowed to have a boy over without your sisters here?" He asked condescendingly.
"Are you allowed to be in the house with no supervision from one of us?" I asked back, knowing Prue would kill him for being here alone, she still hated him.
"Well, you're here now. You can watch me." I sighed angrily.
"Why a 16 year old gets stuck looking after a fully grown 200 year old man like she's a baby sitter I will never know! Oh, Warren this is Phoebe's boyfriend Cole, Cole this is Warren. Warren, this is the first thing I have to explain to you, Cole is a demon." I stated, taking his hand and pulling him upstairs. "I'm a witch, one of a few that go to your school, you know about them right?" He nodded stunned as we got to the second floor with Cole following us. "Principal Powers wanted me to join the school after I developed my second power, my sisters and I got ours 3 years ago after Phoebe read a spell from the Book of Shadows. I can shimmer, which is how I move from one place to another, Cole can as well. I also developed the power to blow stuff up quite recently and I'm still getting a handle of that." We finally got to the attic and I opened the Book of Shadows up to Balthazar. "This is the Book of Shadows. It's our family's book full of spells. This right here, is a demon. That's Cole." Warren looked at the drawing of the demon on the page before looking to Cole who turned into Balthazar. As that happened Warren lit up, ready for Cole to jump at him. "Okay! Power down. He's just showing you. Cole won't hurt us, hurting us hurts Phoebe and Cole loves her."
"But I thought Demons couldn't love…" He questioned confused.
"Cole is half human, that gives him human emotions. There's a reason I'm telling you all this. Several actually. I really like you and I don't want to lie to you, you told me about your life and now I'm telling you about mine. Also, I'm going to prove to you you're not evil. Here, hold this I want you to see something." I handed him the book and he held it in his hands waiting for me to do something.
"What?" I held up my finger, taking it back from him.
"Cole, think fast!" I yelled, tossing him the book which immediately electrocuted him when he caught it, making him drop it.
"OW! Why am I always the guinea pig around here?"
"Cause I don't know anyone else that's evil that I some-what trust." I picked the book up off the floor holding it out to Warren again. "This book can't be touched by evil, or people with evil intentions, like Cole, he may be good now but he's still a demon, he can't touch it. If you were truly evil you wouldn't be able to out your hands on this book." I handed it back to him and he looked at me stunned. "You're not going to be a villain like your father, you're a good man and I honestly don't think there is an evil bone in your body." With that the book was dropped to the floor and I found myself in the arms of my new friend, feeling his warm lips against mine.
"You're amazing, did you know that." I smiled up at him before connecting our lips again.
"What the hell?" I pulled away sighing as I heard Prue's voice.
"Time to face the music." I laughed, knowing this was the start of something truly amazing in my life.
