The last Straw
Summary: What if the Elders taking Leo away was the last straw for Piper, and she was ready to get even? Will Paige and Phoebe be able to stop her in time? Focused around the time Leo became an Elder.
Disclaimer: Am I the only one who's tired of doing these stupid things? They're a waste of time, but for legal purposes I'll say this; I do not owed Charmed or anything I could get sued for!
Dedicated to Alexywill22 because he has stuck by me from the very beginning and has always given me great reviews, thanks.
Chapter 1- Piper's breakdown
Piper couldn't understand, why did 'they' make Leo an Elder? She knew that they hadn't done anything wrong, but now he was gone and this time he wasn't coming back.
"Why?" Piper mumbled angrily. She picked up their wedding photo and stared at it. Looking back at that time she realized that everything was perfect; Prue was still alive, Phoebe was with Cole, and Piper and Leo were at their best. Now Paige was too busy trying to be 'Super-Witch' to want to bond, Phoebe's boyfriend Jason was in Hong Kong all the time, and Leo was gone. "Why do things have to change?" Piper thought glumly. Everything was so screwed up because the Elders were hell bent on seeing her and her sisters miserable. It was their fault Leo was gone, and it was their fault Prue and Mom and Grams were gone, and it was their fault that anything bad that had happened to them as witches had happened.
"Everything happens for a reason my ass!" Piper grumbled. So missed Leo so much and it killed her that she couldn't see him anymore, but she did see him, every time she looked at Wyatt she saw him. He was a result of their love and there would always be some of Leo in him. Piper started to cry. "Why me? Why us! She cried into her pillow. She heard a knock at her door and in walked Phoebe.
"Sweetie, what's wrong?" Phoebe asked as she hugged Piper.
"I miss Leo so much!" Piper cried Phoebe hugged her tighter.
"Shh, I know." Phoebe assured her.
"Why didn't he choose me?" Piper asked in between sobs.
"Honey he did choose you. It's just…he really didn't have a choice." Phoebe explained.
Suddenly Piper stopped crying and her appearance grew serious. "Well I'm sick of 'them' ruining out lives and I'm gonna put a stop to that and get Leo back… even if it kills me." Piper stood up and headed for the attic with Phoebe following close behind.
"Whoa, wait, Piper don't do anything rash." Piper said as Piper started to flip through the Book of Shadows.
"I'm not doing anything 'rash' I'm simply doing what we've wanted to do from the beginning."
"Color-coat the Book?" Phoebe asked hopefully even though she knew this was wrong.
"Funny," Piper said blankly as she started writing something down.
"What are you doing?" Phoebe questioned as she looked over Piper's shoulder
"If you must know I'm writing down our most powerful vanquishing potions, which would be; the one for the Source, Belthazor, and Cole."
"Piper you're scaring me. What are you going to do with that potion?" Piper just flashed her a huge grin. Phoebe gasped. "Omigod, you're gonna try to vanquish the Elders, aren't you?" Phoebe put her hand over her mouth.
"That's the hope," Piper closed the Book. "Ya know, I should just hire a Darklighter to do this for me, but where's the fun in that!" Piper smiled again and headed for the kitchen with Phoebe following once again.
"Piper stop, you don't have a clear mind. You're angry, I get that, but would you please think about what you're doing. They could recycle you for this, or worse, kill you!" Phoebe tried to tell her as Piper started pulling out ingredients.
"Granted that any of them survive." Piper told her as she began mixing items.
"Piper, what's wrong with you?"
"Why? Why? Piper you're mixing a vanquishing potion, for the Elders!" Phoebe almost laughed at the fact that she had to explain this.
"So? Phoebes is there a point to this?" Piper asked, annoyed.
"Yes! The point is that you're losing it!" Phoebe screamed.
Phoebe groaned. This was getting nowhere. She picked up her cell and dialed Paige. After a couple of rings she picked up. "Hey, I need you to get over here pronto, no time to explain, just hurry." Phoebe hung up, seconds later Paige orbed in.
Immediately noticing Piper mixing the potion she moaned. "Okay, what demon are we after this time?" She crossed her arms. Piper looked up and smiled.
"Paige, just in time to help me vanquish the Elders!" Piper pulled out at least 20 little vials and started filling them as she said this.
"Wanna run that by me again? Did she…" Paige started.
"Umhmm," Phoebe nodded. "I don't get it, one minute she's crying over Leo and the next she's considering hiring a Darklighter.
"Oh I wasn't gonna hire him." Piper interrupted. "I was going to take it out in exchange for his life." Paige's eyes shot open in amazement and nodded in an I-told-you-so way.
"You think she's possessed, or under a spell?" Paige asked.
"It wouldn't be the first time." Phoebe agreed.
"I'm not possessed or under a spell!" Piper scolded them.
"That's exactly what a jinxed or possessed person would say!" Paige shot back. "Quick, break out the Holy water!"
Phoebe shook her head at Paige's obvious attempt to joke.
"Done!" Piper cheered in a sing-song voice as she carefully placed the last vial in her purse. "Wouldn't want the house blowing up, would we?" She muttered. "Paige would you orb me up 'there', please. I would like my husband back soon."
"Sorry Piper, but we can't let you go through with this. Think about the cost; dammit think about your son!" Paige hollered.
"I am thinking about him! He gets his dad back and we get rid of the Elders, all in one night. Pretty good I think!" Piper shouted. "Now are you gonna help me or not?"
"You're not going Piper." Phoebe said sternly as she crossed her arms and took a step closer to her but Piper backed away.
"Wanna bet?" Piper challenged. "C'mon, try and stop me!" She paused for a second and smiled.
"All the clouds in the sky,
take me there so I may see
the ones who have ruined me!"
Piper started to disappear in a swirl of gold and white lights. As she disappeared she waved good-bye.
"Holy crap," Paige stated the obvious.
"After her! I'll stay here with Wyatt! Hurry!" Phoebe commanded her.
Paige nodded and quickly orbed away.
