Disclaimer: I do not own any of the Charmed characters, though at times I wish that I did. All of the characters and character names, are my own creations, so please don't take them without my permission. If you would like to use one of my characters, please ask first.

Author's Note: Chris is still alive and is still Piper and Chris's son. The new baby hasn't arrived yet, either. This is just something I've wanted to write about for a while and I still wanted Chris to be in the picture. You'll figure out why, later, though.

Also note that I have included the Four Horsemen in it. I'm almost positive that the sisters had already vanquished them, but in this story, no witch or demon can vanquish them.

Chapter One

Paige flipped through the Book of Shadows, looking for a protection spell for Piper, since she was getting along with her pregnancy. She wasn't invincible like she was with Wyatt and she felt as though Piper wouldn't take it easy with this baby. Paige blamed it all on the hormones, though.

"Paige?" Piper called from the second floor landing. "Are you up there?"

"Yeah!" Paige called back. She then heard Piper walk up the stairs.

"Are you still looking for that spell?"

"I can't help it. You worry me, sometimes."

"relax, I'll be fine. You act like I've never been pregnant before."

"Will you please let me do this? I'll just feel a lot better after I do this."

Their conversation was interrupted by Chris orbing into the room. His hair was disheveled and his clothes were torn.

"Chris, what the hell happened to you?" Paige asked.

"We have a problem." He said.

"What kind of problem?" Piper asked.

He didn't get the chance to explain. A demon entered the room in a cloud of dark blue smoke. Piper let out a loud gasp. It was War, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

"Didn't we already vanquish you?" Piper asked. He looked at her with an evil gleam in his eye. She froze him as he formed energy balls and was ready to throw them at her and Paige. "How did this happen, Chris?" She asked.

"Don't ask me. He was the one who attacked me. When I got the chance, I orbed out of there, but he must have followed me."

"Why would he just attack you?" Paige asked.

Chris shrugged. "I dunno. What kind of demon is he, anyway?"

"Very upper level." Piper said, examining the frozen demon.

"Very?" Paige asked.

"Paige, he's one of the Four Horsemen."

"What would he want with Chris?"

"Let's find out, shall we?" Piper unfroze War's head so he would be able to answer her questions and not be able to attack her.

"Wha?" he asked as he found out that he wasn't able to move.

"Why were you following my son?" Piper asked.

"I won't tell you anything." He growled at her.

"Really?" She blew off his left hand, knowing that he would be able to heal himself. "Talk!"


She blew off his right hand. "Talk or you'll lose something you won't be able to grow back."

He glared at her for only a minute. She raised her hands as If she was going to blow off something else, but he gave in. "Okay! There is a huge reward for his head."

"Reward? What kind of reward?" Paige asked.

"Something that no witch could ever imagineā€¦ The chance to be the ruler of the underworld."

"Why would you need to kill him? You're already powerful enough to rule any demon you wanted." Piper pointed out.

"But, it would show that I am even more powerful than my brothers. I would rule all that there is."

Piper gave him her evil smile as she approached him. "Well, listen here. If you come near my son again, I will vanquish you and you won't be able to come back from that." With that, she blew him to pieces, but she knew he would be back.

"This isn't good." Paige said.

"You're telling me." Chris spoke up, a worried look on his face.
