Ok, I'm totally lost. I don't know what I have to update. Ugh! It's horrible! Anyway, here ya go.
Um, just to clear something up, cuz I'm a spacing idiot, Wyatt's 8 and Meg's 7…this will probably be overdramatic, so sue me. FYI, I know ppl are gonna be asking, so I'll save you the trouble by telling you that Leo is a Therapist…how original.
"Kid's don't run in the house please!" Piper ordered as Meg and Wyatt zipped past the sisters in the kitchen.
"Okay mom!" Wyatt called from another room.
Piper shook her head and smiled.
"It feels so weird being back here all together, doesn't it?" Phoebe asked as she looked around her childhood home. Prue and Piper nodded.
"I just wish it wasn't under these circumstances." Prue added just as the doorbell rang. Piper stood up to go and get it but paused when she heard Wyatt's voice.
"Mom! Some policemen are here!"
The three exchanged unsettling glances and headed for the foyer. When they got there they found two uniformed officers standing inside the door. One of them was holding Megan.
"What are you doing with my daughter?" Prue demanded. "Put her down!"
"Wyatt, c'mere." Piper whispered and pulled him to her.
"Prudence Halliwell Trudeau?" The one holding Meg asked.
"Yes…" Prue answered quickly. Her eyes never leaving Meg's.
"Mrs. Trudeau, you're under arrest for the abduction of a minor." The 2nd one said and pulled out his handcuffs.
"What?" All three women screamed in unison.
"W-wait, you're making a mistake!" Prue cried, as she was handcuffed. "I didn't kidnap my daughter! My husband abused me! I was saving her! Please!"
The police ignored her plea and started reading her her rights.
"I know my damn rights!" Prue screamed and tried to break free from his grip.
"Mommy!" Megan cried. Tears streaming down her cheeks.
"It's alright baby, don't be scared." Prue tried to console her daughter.
"Mommy don't let them take Megan!" Wyatt tugged at Piper's shirt.
Phoebe looked down at her nephew then at the police. "Hold it! My husband's the ADA, so I now how it works. You can't take Meg without a warrant. At least, not when she has family near by."
The officer holding Meg looked at his partner for his approval. He nodded his head and Piper ran up and grabbed Megan out of his arms and tried to get her to stop crying.
The officers escorted Prue outside and down the steps.
"Don't worry Prue! I'll call Cole!" Phoebe called from the door and watched as her sister was placed in the back of the police cruiser and it pulled away.
When Phoebe stormed into the Conservatory she found Piper sitting on the couch with the two kids. Megan still crying and Wyatt sitting right next to them.
"It's okay Meg," Wyatt started. "We'll get your mom back. Uncle Cole is the best lawyer in the world." He comforted his cousin.
Megan quieted down a little bit but buried her head in Piper's chest.
Piper had finally convinced Megan to watch a movie with Wyatt. She walked into the kitchen just as Phoebe hung up the phone.
"Cole?" Piper asked as she sat down with another cup of coffee.
Phoebe nodded. "He said Andy called in the 'kidnapping' a few hours ago."
"Jesus, I can't believe he would sink so low. I knew there was something off about him."
"Piper, neither of us had any way of knowing what Andy was capable of. He sure didn't act this way when they lived here. He was like a big brother to us." Phoebe said.
Piper looked away briefly then turned back. "What else did Cole say?"
"Well… he said the police don't have any incriminating evidence against Prue. And once she shows them her bruises and tells them how she got them, Andy's screwed."
"That's good news. I hope that bastard rots for what he did to Prue and Megan." Piper said through gritted teeth.
Prue sat in the interrogation room and waited for the officer to return. She stared blankly at the double-sided mirror. Imaging a bunch of people staring right back at her. Judging her for something she didn't even do. She blinked and jumped abruptly. She could've sworn she had just seen Andy's reflection in the mirror.
She closed her eyes and massaged her eyelids. The door opened and caused her to jump but sigh in relief when she saw Cole walk in.
"Cole," She muttered and got up and hugged her brother-in-law.
"How ya holding up?" He asked as they both sat down.
"Not a whole lot better than when you asked me this morning." She somewhat joked then got serious again. "So…what's going to happen?"
"Like I told Phoebe, you have a clean record and once you tell them about Andy's abuse and show them the bruises that should be enough to at least get a restraining order."
"That's it?" Prue asked in a high-pitched voice.
"That's it? Prue, that may actually be the best we could hope for. Maybe a year in prison and some probation if Meg talks, but that's only if we get a reasonable judge." Cole told her.
"So we're definitely taking this to court?" Prue questioned.
"Of course, but I have to warn you. If he doesn't confess and insists on pressing the kidnapping charges, it could get messy."
"Well then, bring it on." Prue quipped.
"Shouldn't Leo be home by now?" Phoebe asked as they sat in the Conservatory watching the news. They had just tucked the kids into bed.
"Well, he had an important meeting today. So he had to push all of his clients back. Sooo I'm guessing he'll be here soon." Piper replied checking her watch.
Just then the doorbell rang.
"Who could that be?" Phoebe asked cautiously as they stood up.
"Police?" Piper guessed as she opened the door and gasped. "Andy, what the hell are you doing here?"
"Piper, that's no way to talk to family you haven't seen in years." Andy smiled and tried to walk in but Piper stood her ground. "Is Megan here?" He asked.
"That's none of your business Andy. Get out of here before I call the cops." Phoebe ordered.
"Megan!" Andy looked over Piper's shoulder and screamed. "Megan its daddy!"
"Get out of here Andy!"
"I'm here to get my daughter." Andy declared through gritted teeth. As if on cue Meg appeared at the bottom of the stairs.
"Daddy?" She asked groggily, rubbing her eyes. "What are you doing here?"
"I've come to take you home sweetie." Andy said calmly still behind Piper's barricade.
"Megan, honey, go back to bed, please." Phoebe waved her off.
"Don't listen to her Megan, come on." Andy protested.
"Ok, I'm calling the police." Phoebe declared and began dialing her cell phone.
"Meg, go back upstairs, please!" Piper ordered and started shutting the door on Andy but her pushed back forcefully, causing her to fall to the ground. Megan screamed. Phoebe helped her back up and hung up her phone.
"The police are on their way Andy. So I suggest you get your sorry ass out of here before they get here." Phoebe said strongly as her and Piper backed up.
"Phoebe, Phoebe, Phoebe. This is none of your concern. This is between Prue and I. And Megan is in the middle. Now, let me get my daughter." Andy dictated. His voice becoming more and more sinister with each word.
"Megan," Piper started, never taking her eyes off of Andy. "Go upstairs and wake up Wyatt and tell him to hide you two in his emergency hiding spot. Ok?" She said calmly.
Megan nodded and ran upstairs.
"Megan no!" Andy called but it was no use. "That was a bad idea Piper. Very bad."
"Andy—don't do anything you're going to regret. All you have to do is walk out of this house right now and we'll forget this whole thing ever happened." Phoebe tried to reason.
"Phoebe, do us all a favor and just shut up already. I mean, seriously, it's bad enough you make all of San Francisco suffer on a daily basis. You don't need to bring your work home." Andy scoffed, cornering them. "Now, I'm sorry I have to do this ladies, I really am. But I want my little girl back." He raised his fist and was about to bring it down when…
"Stop right where you are! Put your hands in the air, now!" A voice from behind ordered.
"This isn't even close to being over. Believe me. It's only the beginning." Andy threatened in a whisper and turned around slowly and found himself staring down the barrel of a gun and two police officers.
"Are you ladies alright?" The woman officer asked as she handcuffed Andy.
"For the most part." Phoebe replied just as Leo rushed in frantically.
"Piper! Phoebe! Are you two alright?" He asked as he hugged Piper.
"We're fine sweetie." Piper reassured him.
"And the kids?"
"Fine," Phoebe answered.
The woman officer started reading Andy his rights and guided him outside. He turned around and sneered at the three of them before disappearing out of site.
"I know this must be traumatizing for you. But, I'm going to need a statement." The remaining officer informed them. Piper nodded.
The officer didn't leave until around midnight. Even then, no one was tired. Leo had calmed Wyatt and Meg down and walked back into the kitchen where Piper and Phoebe were nursing their millionth cup of coffee.
"They're asleep." He said as he sat down next to Piper and wrapped an arm around her. "Are you sure you two are alright?"
"Yes Leo, we're fine." Phoebe insisted. Getting a little agitated because that was the hundredth time he had asked that night. She was just too tired to dwell on it.
Cole called and updated them through the night. He said with Andy in custody, and Prue giving her report, she would be home by morning.
Prue burst in the door the next morning followed by Cole. They walked into the kitchen to find Piper, Leo and Phoebe along with both kids eating breakfast.
"Mommy!" Megan cheered when her mom walked in. She jumped off her chair and ran up to her. Prue picked her up and kissed her.
"Meg, are you okay? I missed you." Prue replied, hugging her.
"Mom, what was wrong with daddy last night? He pushed Auntie Piper down."
"Uh, nothing sweetie."
"Does it have anything to do with him letting us come stay over here?" She asked.
"Smart kid," Cole muttered.
"Something like that. But let's not worry about it, kay?"
"Alright," Megan nodded. "I saved you my cereal, cuz Aunt Phoebe said you were gonna be hungry."
Prue chuckled. "That's sweet, Megan. Thanks."
Just then the phone rang. Piper picked it up.
"Hello? Yes…Yes…Omigod! A-Alright. I'll tell her. Thank-you."
She put the phone down slowly and gave Prue a grim look. "That was the police." She started solemnly. "They said Andy escaped custody."
