Part one: Asking for Truth

"Are we sure we want to do this?" Paige asked her sisters.

Chris Perry. The neurotic Whitelighter from the future. The sisters were sick of his mind games. After the most recent encounter with him, let the sisters unsure of his intentions. After all, letting a demon into the house was bad enough. But letting it near the baby. And saying everything was FINE. The girls wanted to know what was up.

"Yes," Piper and Phoebe chorused.

"I'm sick of not getting answers from him. I want to know the truth about him," Piper continued.

"Ok. But I'm not sure the 24 hour truth spell is the way to go," Paige pointed out.

"Yeah. That one has a tendency to back fire," Phoebe said, scribbling on a sheet of paper.

"Ok, here," She said, 30 seconds later.

"The truth of Chris we wish to know now,

Another way we don't know how

Thoughts he's kept concealed,

Who he is, now revealed," The sisters chanted in unison.

"Ten bucks says Pheebs spell back fires," Paige said after a few seconds.

"There was nothing wrong with my spell!" Phoebe said.

Right as she said it, the wall to their left began to glow. Well, not all of it, but the outline of a life-sized Triquetra glowed.

"Uh, huh," Piper grunted sarcastically, as two people tumbled out.

"Oops," Phoebe said innocently.

The first was a girl, at least 14. She had shoulder length curly blonde hair. She was wearing dark blue jeans, a black shirt and a trench coat that faded from black to green.

The second was a boy, seven or eight. He had short, light blonde hair, bright green eyes.

"Phoebe?" Piper asked. "What did you do?"

"I don't know."

"Ten bucks people. I could be 20 bucks richer right now," Paige said, under her breath.

"Who are you?" Piper asked, hands raised to freeze.

The two children didn't seem to notice anyone else was in the room until Piper spoke to them. They had been to busy standing up and brushing themselves off to notice.

"Who the hell are you?" The girl asked hands on her hips, as she stood in front of the boy, who seemed frightened.

"I believe we asked first," Paige retorted.

Not the right thing to say. The girl raised her hand, and a bright green energy ball formed. She threw it at the sisters.

Piper raised her hands to freeze it as it neared, but nothing happened. They all had to duck to avoid being hit.

The girl sent another. This time Paige called for it and sent it back at them.

"I cant believe were fighting kids," Paige said.

"And there winning," Piper added, eyes wide as the energy ball bounced off a green energy field.

"What the hell?" Phoebe said and Piper called for Chris.

"Isn't this kinda his fault?" Paige asked.

"No. This is kinda Phoebe's fault. Besides, we don't even know if its related to the spell. Does it seem related to you?" Piper said, before "CHRIS!"

"Now you want to see me," the neurotic Whitelighter said sarcastically, orbing right into the path of an energy ball.

Phoebe pointed franticly at the energy ball. Chris looked over just in time to put a hand up. The energy ball absorbed into a pure white force field.

"PENNY!" Chris cried.

"CHRIS!" Penny seemed just as surprised as everyone else.

"What are you doing here? Why are you sending energy balls at me?" Chris asked.

"I don't know. One minute were talking to Prue, Mel and Victor, the next were on the floor here. Where is here?"

"The Halliwell Manor. What do you mean? How did you get here? Where's your brother?"

"Here," the little boy squeaked, poking his out from behind his sister.

"Allen!" Chris cried and the boy orbed over to him and gave him a big hug.

"You mean this...Here...Is the Halliwell manor?" Penny asked.

"Yeah."

Meanwhile, the Charmed one watched confused, as there Whitelighter reunited with these people they didn't know.

"Penny and Allen," Phoebe said. "That's ironic."

Piper nodded.

"So," Chris asked again, "What are you two doing here?"

"Like I said," Penny repeated, "One minute we're talking to Mel and Prue and Victor, the next, were on the ground. That one," She pointed to Piper, "Got bitchy at me, so I sent an energy ball at her."

"Well, its a good thing it didn't hit her. You know who that is?" Chris asked, after hugging the girl as well. She shook her head. "That's Piper Halliwell. And Paige and Phoebe."

The girls eyes got wide. "Sorry," she squeaked.

"Its okay." Then he turned to the sisters, "As for you three. What did you do?"

"Nothing," Phoebe said innocently, as her sisters looked at her.

"I find that hard to believe. Considering these to are to young to understand the meaning of time travel, let alone accomplish it."

"Hey!" Penny exclaimed, "I'm 12."

"Looks older than that," Paige muttered.

"That's not uncommon in my time. What did you do?" Chris asked again, more forcefully.

"Ok, so maybe we cast a little spell," Piper said.

"To do what?" Chris asked, anger growing.

"Find out who you really were," Paige said quietly, so quietly, her sisters, who were stand inches away, had a hard time hearing her.

"YOU DID WHAT!" Chris shouted.

"Well if you weren't so damn secretive..." Phoebe started.

"Let me see the spell," Chris said more calmly.

Phoebe handed it to him.

He read it, then closed his eyes and sighed. "Let this be a lesson. Never. Never. Say Another way we don't know how. Never. It always backfires."

"Right. Lesson learned. Now what's going on? Tell us who they are." Paige said.

"No." Chris turned to the kids. "Follow me."

----------

"Chris?" Penny asked after the trio landed on top of the Golden Gate Bridge. "Why are they so mean to you?"

"They don't trust me."

"What! Why the hell not? You're family."

"They don't know. And what did I tell you about that language?"

"Prue says it. And why don't they know?"

"Because I didn't tell them. I don't care if Prue says it, I though we've discussed, Prue is not a good place to learn from. Unless you're Mel. God knows she needs to be a bit more social."

"Why didn't you tell them?"

"Because I didn't want to mess things up. You cant tell them either, ok."

Penny sighed. "Fine. Can we go back now. I want to see mom."

"Yes. We can go back. But you can't tell your mom who you are, okay." Penny nodded. "Allen?" Allen nodded. "Good."
