Part 6.

The screen showed Cole's pressing his head against Piper's stomach, then kissed hers. Another one, he's caressing her stomach at the penthouse.

"I don't believe." – murmured Leo, his face's all white, bloodless – "Why are you showing me these?"

"I'm giving you a task." – explained Gerald – "You need to know the whole situation to fulfil it."

Leo seemed not to be interested in his job anymore.

"It's involved directly in your family's problem." – added Gerald.

Leo looked at him.

"The Grimoir's been retrieved."

"I flung it to the volcano." – said Leo.

"It's able to protect itself just like The Book of Shadows." – informed Gerald – "And The Underworld are waiting for The Right Source to be born."

Leo's astonished at the imformation, he thought they wouldn't be annoyed about that anymore. They'd vanquished The Source three times.

"It's the son of the most powerful demon and the most powerful witch ever existed." – Gerald watched if his words rang any bell to Leo – "Who could be this demon?"

"Cole Turner."

"And this witch?"

"The Charmed One."

"Which one?"

Leo stared at his boss without blinking. It's Piper, his wife.

"It's impossible. We'll have a daughter, Melinda." – stuttered him.

"They're going to have a son, Leo!" – emphasized Gerald – "If she makes out with you while being pregnant, their son will be out of both our and the Underworld's radar. He'll grow up safely."

Leo couldn't believe in his ears, the imformation was too much. He thought he's having a happy family, and everything's suddenly shattered in a jiffy. Gerald gave him a crystal ball.

"Suck it out of her belly, and confine it inside this ball for me."

Leo took the ball hesitantly.

"Ask Phoebe, she saw your wife use the baby's powers to save the demon. Those weren't orbing and healing as you thought."

Leo looked at Gerald, the elder raised his hand making Leo's forehead glow a couple of seconds, then it turned to normal. He'd given Leo the power to carry out his task.

"Return the ball to me after finished."

Leo orbed out.

Later that day, Phoebe woke up in her bedmate's apartment. She found he wasn't on the bed.

"Eric!" – called her. She put her dressing-gown on.

Eric shimmered in.

"Oh my God!" – gasped Phoebe – "What are you?"

"Easy! It's just me, your sweet lover." – smiled him.

"Demon." – grunted Phoebe.

"What?" – he still kept his deceitful smile – "I think it makes our affair more ideal."


Eric raised his hand to make her body soften, he came to hold her and lead her to the bed.

"Come on, I'm not the stupid demon that is madly in love with you. Stop cursing me!"

"What do you want?"

"What I want brings advantages to both of us." – started Eric – "By the way, my mother was The Source's daughter. It makes me an upper level demon. While the Underworld's in chaos, I want to take a chance to ascend the throne with your considerable support."

"I never support demons." – growled Phoebe.

"Really?" – Eric dragged his lips – " Everyone knows you've helped Clegie, the highest priest of the Underworld, retrieve the Grimoir."

"It's a lie." – insisted Phoebe.

"By lending your Book of Shadows." – added him, her eyes opened wide – "Yours is the greatest book of witches, and The Grimoir is the greatest one of demons. We've just found out they're linked together, you can get another if you have one."

Phoebe's stunned discovering she'd helped the evil side to do an exploit.

"For your imformation, we can copy all of powers existing in this universe by these books. They'll be destroyed and no one after us has a chance to do the same thing. That's why The Source and every demon wanted it. To prevent the appearing of almighty magic being, the good side isn't able to touch the Grimoir and vice versa."

Eric smiled seeing Phoebe start to think.

"If we hold hands and each of us touches the books with the other ones, we can do it." – finished him.

Phoebe stared at Eric, if she worked with him, she could get all of white powers, and he'd get all of dark powers, they would become invincible. Speaking of that word, she asked:

"How powerful in comparison with Cole Turner?"

"This demon just absorbed vanquished demons' powers from the Wasteland. Consider that lower level demons were vanquished more than upper level ones."

She felt satisfied to hear it, she would love to be almighty in magic world. But was she going the way Chris had warned? The evil path?

"I'm good." – mumbled her.

"If working for the elders up there makes you good, then I'm very good, I'm collaborating with them so damn well." – smirked Eric.

He's leading Phoebe from one surprise to another. She's unable to dream of what he's telling.

"The baby your sister's carrying is destined to be The Right Source. It means his reign will last forever. The magic'll be died momently the day he's born. He's our threat."

"The son of an angel's never evil." – resisted Phoebe.

"He'll be born in satanic time. Elder Gerald stated he wasn't your whitelighter's son." – said Eric.

Phoebe's about to argue, but Eric continued:

"I don't mind who's the father. He needs to be dead. Your whitelighter's going to take care of it. To make sure he'll do what he should do, you have to tell him that his wife blurred in and healed the demon by dark magic when he asks you."

"He's my niece." – murmured Phoebe.

"Think if he's alive. Where's your position to stand in your family, in this magic world?" – challenged Eric – "We love powers, we need them to exist. Do you like magic transport? Do you like active powers to fight?" – he formed an energy ball in his palm.

"Take your time to think. Call me after your talk to Leo, if you want." – he kissed gently on her lips, she turned away. He raised his hand again, and she recovered her strength.

Phoebe's working at her office. In fact she wasn't able to do anything, she just waited to see whether Leo appeared. There's a secret that no one in her family but herself knew, she knew Cole had been possessed. She'd kill the wizard on her own to make certain Cole would've been enthroned. She knew it'd been against his free will but she'd wanted to be the queen. However, she'd changed her mind after that, and shifted off all guilts and responsibilities on Cole. Because she not only loved powers and glory, but she also wanted to be holy and lofty. The queen of all evil wouldn't make her a venerable goddess. She thought her blames would've been buried along with his death.

She wanted her husband to be the most elevated son-in-law of the Halliwells. If he's non-magic, he had to be a very successful and wealthy man. If he's magic, he had to be some kind of angel. It's also the reason she'd fallen for Cole at the first time, he's an attorney, and he'd appeared in an angel's clothes with the wings in Halloween day. She'd tried to seduce Leo recently, but failed.

Leo orbed in cutting her thought.

"Leo!" – gaped her, she wondered if he asked about Piper as Eric had told.

"I won't waste your time. I want to ask you something." – said Leo.

"What. . . is it?" – asked her warily.

"You've witnessed Piper came and healed Cole the other day?"



"You want to know what?" – frowned Phoebe.

"How did she do that?"

"Are you sure you want to hear?" – asked her.


"She. . . blurred in."

His eyes looked distant and unexpressive.

"She healed Cole, but it's nothing like your power." – added her.

"It's true." – mumbled Leo. He punched the table.

"I don't know what it meant, but I swear she wasn't using whitelighter's powers."

"Those're her baby's powers." – growled Leo.

"What're you talking?" – she pretended to be confused.

"She'll pay for it." – gritted him. He orbed out.

"Yes, it's true, Leo!" – whispered Phoebe. She's talking about another truth. Eric really had a relation with the elders, at least one of them. Her ancestors, her mother, her oldest sister had died for fighting demons, but their seniors, the famous elders up there and demons down there were entertaining intimacy with each other. It made her dispirit to carry out her sacred duty.

"Where's your position to stand in your family, in this magic world?"

If she's just a witch, a Charmed One with her gifts of premonition and levitation, where's her position after Piper's son became The Right Source? Perhaps vanquishing him would be impossible, perhaps the power of three would be broken, Piper would never accept to kill her own son. How about Chris? He hadn't been friendly to her and Paige, perhaps she's just their pitiful aunt. Who'd support her? Leo's an angel, Cole's very powerful, both of them were Piper's. Speaking of them, she had to break her sister's marriage up, and win Cole back.

Eric's right, she loved powers and needed them to exist. While good and evil were mixed up chaotically, why she had to care of Cole's dark side? She could work with Eric in that plan to become the almighty magic being, but he didn't love her, he would find a way to get rid of her one day. So she decided to reunite with Cole again, and asked him to kill Eric, then they'd proceed the plan. It's safer for her since he'd never betray her.

Cole got up from the couch when he heard a knock at his door. Half hoping it was Piper he opened the door and slammed it shut, but Phoebe pushed it open in time.

"Get the hell out of my house, witch!" spat Cole.

Phoebe walked in practically chasing him.

"Cole, please listen" said Phoebe.

"I don't want to hear it" he said turning on her. "Where do you get off trying to kill me like that?"

"Listen I'm sorry" said Phoebe. "It's unlike me. I mean I was so desperate to get you out of my life. I love you and it scares me"

She was really convincing. Her eyes were full of pain and Cole found himself sympathize with her. He shook his head. He couldn't fall for her tricks again.

"If you won't leave" said Cole. "I will"

She grabbed his arm. "Cole I'm pregnant"

He gaped.
