Part 5.

Phoebe entered the Manor angrily and worriedly. That time she not only failed in killing Cole, but also exposed her plan to him. She couldn't predict what he's going to do, but she thought it wouldn't be kind. Paige had agreed with Piper to ignore Cole as long as he didn't interfere in their family, Leo was Piper's husband, Phoebe didn't see anyone willing to stand up for her. She determined to draw Leo and Paige in supporting her and impute every blames to Piper. She saw her younger sister in the living room.

"Ha! Any good news?" – asked Paige – "You used a spell on me?"

"It didn't harm you a bit." – defended Phoebe.

"But you cheated on me. Why didn't you just tell me what you're going to do ? I think we're sisters."

"I just wanted to know how effective it was." – explained Phoebe – "I'm sorry. But we've got a bad news to talk."

"Oh, It means he's still very alive." – mocked Paige.

"Thanks to Piper. She's healed him."


Orb light appeared and formed into Leo.

"Hi!" – said him – "Where's Piper?"

"Staying with her love." – replied Phoebe promptly.

"What?" – asked both Leo and Paige.

"Yeah, you should've seen the view."

"Wait a min!" – said Leo – "She's told me you're with Cole killing him."

"And your wife healed him then."

"How could she come there in time?" – asked Paige.

"She used the baby's powers." – guessed Leo.

"That's right." – approved Phoebe – "When he's dying, she appeared, and rushed to him to hold him in her lap, cry for him, and heal him."

Leo felt puzzled, he remembered Piper'd pleaded him to save Cole, she'd said she'd been in danger twice, but she'd never called him. Finally she'd called him when Cole'd been in danger. He became jealous thinking about his wife holding Cole while he'd been totally naked.

"No." – protested Leo firmly – "She never loved him, she loves me."

Meanwhile, Piper walked down the stairs. Phoebe used a taxi to come home, she'd stuck in trafic jam about one hour. Now Piper appeared from upstairs, she could guess who'd brought her back.

"OK, ask your beloved wife." – said her.

"Piper!" – murmured Leo.


"Where've you gone?"

"I went to save Cole."


"She said she love him. She couldn't let him die. That's why." – answered Phoebe.

Leo backed away, shaking his head.

"No, Piper!" – stammered him - "No."

"Leo, I want to talk to you alone." – proposed Piper, she intended to tell him everything about their past love, and their last decision.

"Forget, Piper. You don't deserve me." – Leo orbed out.

Piper glared at her sister:

"What have you told him, Phoebe?"

"I told the truth. You're committing adultary. You opposed me to kill Cole just because you love him." – Phoebe gritted her teeth.

"Any truth else? You used an evil spell. You work with evil." – snapped Piper.

"And you're sleeping with evil." – retorted Phoebe.

Piper slapped on her face, she pushed her back in return, Paige ran to hold Piper.

"Paige, you support her? She betrayed us." – shouted Phoebe.

"You shouldn't be rough to her, Phoebe. She's pregnant, remember?" – said Paige.

"Do I need to remind you that she's invincible? She's accusing me to be evil. But all we saw is she wants my man."

"Cole isn't your man anymore." – cried Piper – "What did you do to get that priest's help?"

"I don't know what you're talking. He's seduced you, you're not yourself anymore, Piper." – Phoebe stomped off.

Leo walked into a bar. He had been walking around for quite sometime and he needed a drink. How and why would Piper commit such an act? Part of him wanted to confront Cole and hurt him really bad and then another part wanted to go back to Piper and talk to her. To understand why.

Surprisingly, he saw Phoebe at the far end of the bar being lost in thought and twirling her glass. She saw Leo and smiled slightly. Leo sat next to her and ordered some scotch. He saw Phoebe had several shots of whisky already.

"Out getting drunk too?" he asked.

Phoebe nodded. "Yup my ex-husband's banging my sister what a way to toast it off"

She caught the hurt look on Leo's face but shrugged it off.

"It's not like Piper" he said thoughtfully. "We're expecting a child. I have to believe her"

"Leo even you have to admit you haven't been with her a hundred percent with the pregnancy" explained Phoebe. "Her hormones are on the high and she's feeling needy. She's a woman with needs and she needs what you and her have been lacking lately"

"But she understands I have other people to take care of" said Leo.

"So?" said Phoebe taking another shot. "What does that mean to her? She's been around Cole, she has lived in the same house as him. You guys heard us before. Cole can give her all that. He's good looking, really fit, and charming"

"He's a demon who tried to kill her more than one occasion" reminded Leo. He looked at Phoebe. "How would you know this?"

"Remember when Piper was kidnapped" said Phoebe. "We asked Cole for help. He found her and they blurred off somewhere. Stayed there all night"

He ordered his third glass. Already he was feeling tingly. He wasn't used to drinking so much hard liquor.

"So what about you?" asked Leo. "Aren't you angry? Do you still love him?"

Phoebe looked down then inched closure to him. Their faces were barely touching.

"I hate him" she said coldly and slowly.

Paige walked in the kitchen cautiously.

"Hope you're not expecting a buffet" said Piper bitterly. She pointed to the bagel bag beside her.

"I wasn't" lied Paige. She sat across from Piper. "Piper what happened yesterday when you went to Cole's"

"I wasn't going to let him die, Paige" said Piper slightly glaring at her. "I couldn't. It's not right"

"It wasn't right what he did to us last year" said Paige as a matter a factly.

Piper shook her head. "I never really believed he could just turn back to us like that"

"It's over and done with" said Paige. "That was a nightmarish year and I don't care to discuss it"

She pulled out an onion bagel and cut it open.

"You're mad at me too, I guess" said Piper sighing. She took a drink of her orange juice.

Paige looked at her. "I don't know, I just don't understand why"

"Because, Paige, two past lives ago I loved him" said Piper. "He sacrificed his life for mine. I was dead and so was our baby, so he made a deal with an Avatar. In order for me to live he would have to die and we could never be together in future lives"

"This is precious" said Paige shaking her head and laughing.

"It's not funny Paige" said Piper getting up.

Paige's laughter ceased. "Piper please don't tell me you love him"

Piper turned around quickly. "No…yes…maybe"

Paige raised an eyebrow.

"I do" said Piper leaning against the island and sighing. "The thing is I can't love him. I have to love Leo because I did. I married Leo, I'm pregnant by Leo. Cole is not and cannot be in the picture. For both our sakes"

"Good" said Paige. "You must keep us together. We can't let the future turn out the way it's supposedly destined to be. It would be better to vanquish Cole or for you to never see him again. Can you do either?"

Motel Room

"So it's bang and run, huh?" asked Phoebe after throwing up in the toilet.

Leo threw up again in the trashcan and put his pants on. He had one major migraine. He would go recover "up there" then talk to Piper.

"I told you" said Leo putting on his shirt. "I love Piper, not you. It was a mistake. A drunken mistake"

"Go!" shouted Phoebe. "Go to your unfaithful wife and I hope she breaks your heart"

He orbed out.

"Leo Wyatt."

He turned around: "Elder Gerald."

"Love lost?" – asked Gerald while smiling slightly.

"She isn't worth." – grumbled Leo – "She leaves me for a demon. What a disgrace!"

"It isn't this simple." –said Gerald – "They're predestined love."

He waved his hand, a screen appeared hanging in the air.


Leo gazed at it to see a floating boat. The elder flipped his fingers and the view showed clearly a couple on that boat. Cole and Piper were cuddling and kissing each other. Leo's face became red with anger, then it turned to pale. Gerald observed him, and smiled:

"Old flames are burning again."

The view changed to the scene they're kissing in another realm, the next kiss happened the day Piper had brought dinner to Cole.

"Bitch!" – growled Leo – "She's carrying my child, but sneaking with that bastard."

"You're mistaken." – said the elder – "It's their son, not yours."
