Chapter 30 - Falling Apart

"Leo come on. We're going to be late. I don't want Patty stood outside on her own -!" I called.

"Piper, you know they wont let her out on her own. She'll be OK. Are you sure you can -"

"I'm driving." I said, before he could ask. He sighed, and finally walked out of the door.

"Don't forget to lock it." I warned him. He locked the door without a word.

"We're going to be a whole five minutes late." I said anxiously. "What if she sneaks out?"

"Piper, try to - ah - calm down. They wont let her."

"At least she can't orb." I sighed. "By the way are you going to talk to the boys about that? Because Chris is doing it too now."

"I know. It's just hard to explain to them."

"Well you better try. Chris can't walk yet but he can orb?" I said sceptically. "How is that possible?"

"Piper, we knew they'd be powerful." He said. I nodded. The Elders had warned us we were making the next power of four. Which made me proud and scared all at once.

"Come on, come on." I muttered.

"We're nearly there." Leo assured me.

"I just hope we can find a parking space."

We pulled into the car park I bit my lip. "It's empty." I remarked. "All the other parents have left."

We climbed out and walked towards the entrence. Weird. It was closed.

"Hello?" I knocked on the door. "Hello?"


"Piper, stop it!" Leo hissed. I put my fist down. Finally, it clicked open.

"Piper? What's wrong?" Ms. Wilson asked.

"Where's Patty?" I asked, craning my neck to see past her.

"Piper, Patty was picked up a few minutes ago." She said in concern.

"Wh-what? By who?"

"Her uncle."

"What?" I looked at Leo. "Did you ask Cole or Andy -?"

He shook his head. I turned back to Ms. Wilson.

"Which one? Did he say?"

"No ... He just asked for her and said he was her uncle, that it was OK by you. I wasn't going to let him, but Patty seemed to know him ..."

"Cole, hi, did you pick Patty up?" Leo said quickly into his mobile. "OK, yeah, hang on, I'll call you back in a sec ..." He hung up and dialled again. "Andy, have you got Patty?" He asked. "But ... But ..." He hung up and looked at me. "He doesn't have her. Niether of them do."

"But ... But ..." I fell back against Leo.

"Call the police." He said to Ms. Wilson, who disappeared from sight.

"Where is she Leo? Who took her?" I gasped.

"I - I don't know. Breath. We'll find her."

"Leo, my baby's out there all alone." I gasped. My knees gave way and he caught me. Out of the corner of my eyes I saw orbs, which formed to reveal my sisters, Andy and Cole.

"What's happened?" Prue said quickly.

"Some-some one's taken her. Someone's got her Prue. They've took my baby."

Ms. Wilson reappeared and I heard them all talking, but I couldn't focus, couldn't make out what they were saying. All I could do was stand there as my life fell apart.

I couldn't hear, couldn't see, couldn't breath. My baby ... gone.

Evil me, I know. But the sequel will be up a.s.a.p. It's gonna be called 'Breakdown' and I'll put and A/N up on here when it's up. Thanks to everyone who reviewed ... and everyone who's gonna review on this chapter, hint hint ...
