Piper flipped on the TV the family kept in the kitchen to avoid making contact with each other during meals, and it worked pretty well too. The whole family was gathered around the table eating breakfast as they mindlessly watched Piper channel surf.
Piper stopped on the news. The blonde weathergirl with the fake nose was on. She kind of looked like Matt Damon in drag.
"The Bay area is expected to be hit with the biggest storm in years." The bimbo began. "A strong current is blowing through from…. Whichever country is closest to California and is not going to let up for at least 2 weeks, until then you are advised to stay in your houses. Wind speeds up to 85 miles and hour are expected." She continued.
"Hey Phoebes, you should go fly a kite." Paige joked to her older sister.
"Great idea Paige," Phoebe beamed back. She actually considered the idea until she turned to Cole, who shook his head in advisement.
"Shush!" Piper ordered, never taking her eyes off the screen where a male reporter was outside somewhere trying to talk over the massive wind.
"So all schools and businesses will be closed, along with many roads, due to the storm…" He tried to continue but he was suddenly swept away by a massive gust of wind. The camera cut off. Piper turned off the TV and turned her attention back to the table.
"You think this is Prue's way of telling us she's okay?" Phoebe asked as she took a bite of her cereal.
"I wouldn't put it past her." Cole mumbled. The two chuckled and Piper shot them her famous 'shut up-you-sorry excuse-for-a-human' glance. They immediately stopped.
"Do you know what this means? I'm gonna be stuck here for 2 weeks with you people!" Piper moaned.
"Maybe we could orb somewhere, like the Bahamas." Leo suggested.
"That has personal gain written all over it." Piper responded. She looked out the window and gasped. "Holy crap!"
Everyone turned to the window.
It was as dark as night outside, even though it was only 9:30am, rain poured down, and wind threw leaves and debris every which way.
Paige walked over to the back door and suddenly something hard hit it. It was Kit. Paige opened the door and let in the shaking cat "Poor kitty," She said as she watched Kit run under the table, leaving muddy prints behind.
"All over my clean floor!" Piper screamed. Kit hissed. "Shut up!"
"This should be fun." Paige grumbled glumly.
"Hey Cole, wanna go upstairs and play, uh Twister?" Cole asked. It was a stupid cover up because everyone knew what it meant. Phoebe had been using that euphemism since she was 14.
"Sure!" Cole happily replied as the two jumped up and ran from the room.
"Sounds like a good idea, doesn't it Piper?" Leo raised an eyebrow.
"You wanna go play Twister with Phoebe and Cole?" Paige gave him a disgusted glance.
"You have fun with that." Piper said blankly as she started washing dishes.
"Forget it," Leo stood up. "I'm gonna go write in my diary… ah I mean I'm gonna go… watch football!" He quickly left.
"He never writes anything good in that thing." Piper said without turning around. "Just a bunch of crap about his feelings."
"Bummer," Paige replied. "So I'm gonna go barricade myself in my room. I suggest you do the same, or heads are gonna roll." She got up and went to the fridge and started pulling out food. Piper turned and stared at her, completely confused. She put a soapy hand on her hip.
"What the hell are you doing?" Piper spat.
"What part of 'barricading myself from you people' did you not understand?" Paige asked, arms full of food that would probably spoil in a couple hours and end up giving her really bad food poisoning. Piper loved it.
She shrugged and turned back to her task. Paige walked off.
Leo's up in his room writing in his diary, which is pink and covered in crappily drawn flowers and unicorns. It has 'Keep out' scrawled across the front.
Leo sighed as he wrote.
"Ugh, I'm stuck here because of a storm. I hope the Elders call me soon. Piper shot me down, again! I swear, I'm getting really tired of everyone walking all over me just because I'm not as strong or intimidating as other guys… I wish…" Leo stopped scribbling as Piper walked in. He quickly closed the book and threw it under his pillow.
"Hey, do you know where the Aspirin is?" Piper asked as she looked around the room.
"Yea, I think it's in the bathroom." He replied. Piper nodded and headed for the bathroom. Leo pulled back out his journal and swiftly wrote. "XOXOXO" at the bottom of the page and returned it to its place. Piper walked back out.
"I'm gonna take a nap and try to take care of this splitting headache " She started as she sat on the bed.
"How'd you get a headache?" Leo asked, concerned.
"Oh Phoebe and Cole were goin at it and I was stupid enough to stand under their room, the ceiling broke and about 200 somethin pounds of naked flesh fell right on top of my head."
"How pleasant," Leo said mockingly.
"Very," Piper mumbled, laying down and closing her eyes.
Leo decided to use this opportunity to get close to his wife… Not that way you prick, Gaw is that all you people ever think about! Anyway, he laid down next to her and wrapped his arms around her.
Piper thought that Leo had left, and then he laid down, she was glad he did, they never really did anything anymore, maybe this wouldn't be so bad after all. She could spend the time with Leo….Boy was she ever wrong.
That was just the pilot. Tell me what you think then you get chapter 2! Trust me, it can only get funnier from here..
