Ok I've finally decided to get off my lazy ass and do something productive…I just haven't felt like writing lately…or drawing…or living…hmm, I should really do something about that, lol.
(A few months later)
"I'm telling you Piper, there's something going on! Cole's been acting really secretive lately." Phoebe said, picking at her Chinese food as her and Piper sat in the kitchen.
"I think you're overreacting. I think you're starting to pick up my bad habits." Piper replied and took another bite of her egg roll.
"And which bad habit would that be exactly?" She raised an eyebrow.
"The one where you freak out because demon activity has been light, and things are quiet, and you start getting a little neurotic just waiting something to ruin it." Piper said matter-of-factly.
"Oh thatbad habit!" Phoebe rolled her eyes. "You're probably right."
"Phoebe, when will you learn that I'm always right?" Piper joked and patted her sister's shoulder.
Phoebe chuckled. "Hey, where's Prue? Shouldn't she be home by now?"
Piper shrugged. "She probably had a meeting run long. She'll be home soon."
Prue stood up from behind her desk, completely out of breath. Cole got up next to her.
"Well…I've-- never done that before." She muttered and buttoned her blouse back up.
Cole chuckled. "I couldn't tell."
Prue smiled until she looked at the clock. "Omigod! Is that the time? I was supposed to be home an hour ago!" She said quickly as she pulled her high heels on and straightened her hair in the mirror. Cole came up behind her, wrapped his arms around her waist, and kissed her neck. "Cole, stop, I have to go."
"Did I ever tell you how beautiful I think you are?" He asked smoothly, watching her scramble around the room trying to collect all her things.
Prue smiled at him briefly before returning to the task at hand. "Frequently, now will you please help me find my phone?"
"This one?" Cole asked. Prue turned to see it sitting on her desk. Just where she had left it.
"Yes, that one." She picked it up. "I've been out of whack for a couple weeks. I think I'm losing it."
He kissed her gently. "And I think you're just working too hard. You need to relax, take a vacation."
Prue frowned. "Cole you know I can't do that. Besides, with demonic activity being at an all time low I've decided to use that little advantage to catch up here."
Cole shook his head as they walked to the door. "You're going to work yourself to death."
Prue touched his cheek and kissed him. "Don't worry about me. Worry about yourself and what Phoebe would do to you if she called your office and found out you weren't there now." She kissed him one more time and walked out the door.
Cole stood there for a moment, trying to regain his composure. How could one woman make him feel so weak? Everytime she said his name his heart jumped in his chest. He loved Prue so much. All he wanted to do was just hold her and never let go, but he was afraid she didn't feel the same. This was probably just a game to her, a way to prove to everyone that she could do whatever she wanted whenevershe wanted because she was the most powerful. Cole shook the thought out of head. No, Prue had to have somefeelings for him. "At least, I hope she does." He muttered and shimmered out.
"Piper! Phoebe! I'm home!" Prue called when she walked through the front door of the manor. She set her purse and jacket by the door and walked into the Conservatory to find her sisters sitting on the couch watching a movie, munching on popcorn.
" Well it's about time!" Phoebe said as she pulled Prue down next to her.
"It's sort of hard to have 'Sister Night' when only two-thirds of the sisters are here." Piper said and wrapped her blanket tighter around her.
"I'm sorry you guys, I got caught up at the office."
"No problem Prue, we understand. Popcorn?" Phoebe offered and turned back to the movie, taking some of Piper's blanket.
Prue took the bowl and popped a few pieces into her mouth. She loved spending time with her sisters. But lately it was becoming harder and harder to do what with work, demons, and Cole. She kicked the thought out of her head. She was here now, why ruin it?
Sometime after a random thought popped into Prue's head. 'Where'd I put my purse?' She strained to remember but couldn't. Her mind had been somewhere else for almost a month now. It was driving her insane. She couldn't remember where she put things, or what time appointments and auctions where. Maybe there was something demonic in the works. 'Or maybe Cole was right and you are just over-worked. You really do need a break.'
"Hey guys," Prue started. Both of her sisters turned their attention to Prue. "I think we should all take a week or two off."
"Wow, the Great Prue, Queen of the office, Lord of the late-night meetings wants a vacation?" Phoebe joked. Prue slapped her lightly on the arm.
"I'm serious, I think we should take some time off before the demons get through with their vacation."
Piper and Phoebe exchanged a glance.
"Seriously?" Piper asked skeptically.
"Seriously," Prue repeated.
Phoebe put an arm around her shoulder and squeezed. "We're gonna hold you to that."
"You do that,"
Piper clapped her hands. "Yay, Halliwell family vacation 2006!"
