"Piper! Paige!" Phoebe called out loud as she descended the stairs and started walking into the foyer.
"Phoebe, what is it?" her older sister asked as she came out of the kitchen, where she was preparing dinner.
"Where's Paige?" was Phoebe's response.
"Right here," came the answer through some blue and white orbs as Paige reappeared next to her sisters. "What seems to be the problem?"
"Well…" said Phoebe slowly, starting to squirm.
"Phoebe…" said Piper slightly worried, "What is it?"
"It's um… uh… well, ya see… it's, uh…" Phoebe answered trying to find the right words.
"Spit it out!" said Paige.
"Is it another crazy demon-hunting quest Chris wants to send us on?" Piper asked, obviously not in the mood for going off to vanquish something. "You know, coz if it is, it's gonna have to wait coz this is one dinner I'm not putting on hold!"
Phoebe smiled sympathetically at her sister. She knew how happy she was that they'd gotten rid of Gideon and this was their sort of 'celebratory' dinner but still, this was way more important so she tilted her head as if to say 'not really'.
"Is it to do with Wyatt?" asked Piper getting anxious.
"Well, kinda…" answered Phoebe starting to back away slightly from her big sister, cracking under the pressure. Hadn't she told Chris she wasn't good at keeping secrets!
"Phoebe, where is my son!"
"He's with Chris, but…"
"I… I had a premonition…"
"Yes… about what?"
"Well, um, nothing we can't handle… I think…"
"Oh, oh, ok!" Yip, she'd cracked. "I had a premonition of someone taking Wyatt…" said Phoebe, shielding herself with her arms.
"Who did you see taking him? And when?" asked Paige trying to keep her cool since Piper obviously wasn't doing a very good job of it.
"I… I can't tell you…"
"Future consequences?" Phoebe tried desperately.
"Phoebe!" Piper was so mad that she had taken to blowing up everything she could get in eye contact with. "Where," the vase went first. "Is," next was the chandelier. "My," the flower pot exploded into tiny pieces. "Son!" the glass in most of the windows shattered. She then placed her hands in front of Phoebe in a 'you're-my-sister-and-I-love-you-but-if-you-don't-tell-me-where-my-son-is-you're-never-gonna-get-to-see-the-light-of-day-again' way.
"Piper, breathing is good." Paige placed an arm on her sister's shoulder.
"Phoebe I asked you a question!" said Piper completely ignoring Paige's futile effort to calm her down.
"I told you – he's with Chris."
"Chris! Get your whitelighter butt down here!"
"What?" Chris appeared in front of the three sisters with Wyatt in his arm.
"Chris what the hell is Phoebe talking 'bout? She said she had a premonition of someone taking Wyatt - but we already got rid of Gideon…" said Piper with her hands still poised as if she was gonna blow him up any second if he didn't tell her exactly what was going on.
Chris stole a sideways glare at Phoebe who just shrugged embarrassedly. He looked back at Piper, first to her hands, then to her chocolate brown eyes which had a warning look in them, and finally back to her hands.
"Don't make me use them…"
"Ok, ok, relax –" said Chris putting his hands out in front of him defensively.
"Relax! How dare you tell me to relax where my son's life is concerned!"
"Piper, I think he's right… just… defuse a little before you blow up the house – I've kinda gotten used to it, you know! And besides, Chris came all the way to the past to protect Wyatt – I don't think he'd risk letting all his efforts be in vain…" said Paige trying to prevent her sister from doing something she might regret.
"Thank you!" said Chris throwing his hands up in the air in exasperation.
Paige just gave him a 'I'd-better-be-shutting-up-right-about-now-if-I-were-you-coz-I-just-saved-your-ass-but-I-can-just-as-easily-reverse-it' look. Chris gave her a semi-glare in return.
"Yeah, honey, Paige is right, Chris would never let something happen to his bro- to Wyatt" Phoebe corrected herself while giving Piper a hug. She glanced at Chris apologetically who looked ready to telekinetically throw her against a wall for almost revealing his secret.
Paige, who had been watching this encounter, gave Phoebe a strange look.
"Ok, calm down… I can do that…" said Piper slowly putting her hands down.
"Yeah and don't forget to breathe…" added Paige. Piper gave her youngest sister a 'what-the-hell-does-it-look-like-I'm-doing!' glare.
"Sorry!" Paige raised her hands in defence. Chris rolled his eyes at his aunts and mother.
"Ok so can we get back to the matter at hand?" asked Chris getting into 'protecting-Wyatt' mode.
"Which would be what, Future Boy?" asked Paige with her hands on her hips.
Chris glared at her. "Well…"
"Yeah…?" said Paige impatiently. More glares.
'Well, since Phoebe already told you about the premonition, we can skip that part," Paige opened her mouth to interrupt but was quickly cut off by Chris. "So I was writing a spell in the attic before I was summoned" he said sarcastically, "to take us to…" he paused at this.
"C'mon, I know you can do it!" said Paige with mock encouragement, who received yet another glare from Chris.
"To…" he took a deep breath. "The future."
Ok guys, that was it – for now anyway! I promise I'll try update sooner than I did last time! ) Hope you enjoyed it and please, please review! (:)
