A/N : This is a complete AU fic, starting after the episode 'Prince Charming' in the sixt season. After Chris told them he wasn't saving Wyatt from a demon, but saving Wyatt from becoming the biggest evil in the world, no one believed him. This is the revelation story of Chris Perry.
It's Not Over
Chapter 1 : The Spell
The Present :
"So, what now ? We've been discussing this for three days and we still haven't gotten anywhere." Paige said as she sighed, looking at her two sisters and Leo.
It had been three days since Chris told them that Wyatt is the one that destroys his entire future. No one believed him and after both Piper and Leo threatened to kill him in several awfull ways, he had orbed out, not to be heard of or seen since.
"I don't know. All I know is Chris is lying. Wyatt is good, not evil. We need to know why Chris is really here. Maybe he's the one that wants to turn Wyatt evil, he wouldn't be the first." Phoebe said as she flipped through the book of shadows, hoping to find some answers.
Piper sighed, she was so frustrated, she looked over at her husband or ex-husband or whatever the hell he was now, who was helding Wyatt in his arms. "What do you think we should do ?" She asked him as she looked into his eyes. He looked back at her, knowing her, she wasn't going to be able to keep her calm for much longer.
"I think... we should find out what Chris Perry's plan really is. It's not to save Wyatt, it can't be, he's lied about so many things, he probably lied about that too. So we need to know why he came back here." Leo said, Piper stood up and threw her hands in the air, this was it, now she was loosing it.
Her anger had been botled up ever since Chris had told them that her little baby boy would turn out to be evil, now she had to let it out, on anyone, she didn't care who. "We know that! But how ? There's no way to know why he's here!" Piper yelled as she threw her hands in the air some more, suddenly, she pointed at an old sewing machine and it blew up, Piper smiled.
"Feel better ?" Phoebe asked as she had to contain a chuckle, Piper kept smiling as she sat back down.
"Much better, thank you. Now, any ideas yet ?" Piper asked as she looked from Phoebe to Paige to Leo.
Phoebe nodded as she slammed the book shut. "Nothing in the book that could help us. I mean, there is the truth spell, but we've discussed that, he's too smart to be fooled by that spell. So, nah, I got nothing." She said, everyone was so frustrated by the fact that their book of shadows couldn't help them in this situation.
"Wait... what if..." Paige began, with a smug look of content on her face, as if she just got a briljant idea.
Everyone looked at her with much curiosity, when Paige got that look upon her face, they knew it meant something good. "Go on..." Leo encouraged her, Wyatt still sitting on his knees, she took a deep breath before she continued.
"Okay, what if we write a spell of our own. One that would allow us to see his future, see where he came from and what his plan really is." Paige said, Piper smiled and Phoebe smiled, she was liking this plan, but Leo however frowned.
"I don't know, what if you go there and change something or get killed ?" Leo asked, but Paige raised her hand as she smiled an even bigger smile, she had it all figured out.
"Ah, but what if we write the spell so that we just go there, as a shadow, unseen by everyone else, just spectaters of a play. That way we can't change anything and we still get what we want." Paige said, Leo nodded, now he was liking this plan too. Piper stood up.
"Okay, but we have to write the spell so that Chris is viewing the memories too, I don't trust him to be here while we're in his memories. And Leo has to come too, this concerns Wyatt, so it concerns both Leo and I." Piper said, Paige nodded, she could already see the spell in her head.
"Leo, could you take Wyatt someplace safe ?" Piper asked as she looked at the father of her beautifull son, he nodded.
"I'll take him up there." Leo said as he looked at the ceiling. "They won't like it, but desperate situations call for desperate messures, besides, he'll be perfectly safe there." Leo said before orbing him and Wyatt out, taking him to the other Elders.
"Okay, now we have to find Chris, I doubt he'll come if we call for him." Piper said as she looked at Phoebe and Paige. Phoebe stood up.
"I'll work on a summoning spell. He's half witch, so it should work." Phoebe said before leaving the attic with the Book Of Shadows. Piper looked at Paige, but she didn't have to say anything, Paige smiled and stood up.
"I'll work on writing the spell." She said before orbing out, probably to a quiet place so she could concentrate.
"And I'll work on some potions, in case we do need them." Piper said to herself before leaving the attic as well.
The Present :
About two hours later, the sisters and Leo were back in the attic, all ready for the next step in their plan.
"Paige, you got the spell ?" Piper asked, Paige nodded as she waved around a piece of paper.
"One Power of Three spell ready to be read." Paige smirked, she loved writing spells. When she thought back at her first spell, she had to contain herself from laughing, she still remembered how bad it was, but it had still worked.
Then Piper turned to Leo, she was not smiling or anything, she was dead serious about this plan, since it did involv her son. "Is Wyatt safe ?" Piper asked, she didn't really trust the Elders.
"Yeah, they made a fuss about it, but since I'm an Elder now too, I didn't let them say no. Besides, they all think we should take care of the Chris situation." Leo explained, Piper nodded, satisfied with the answer she got.
Finally, she turned to Phoebe. "Are you ready to summon him ?" She asked, but Phoebe sighed.
"Well, I kinda tried it already and it backfired, but, don't worry, I have the perfect solution to get Chris here." Phoebe said, Piper sighed as she put her arms to her side, seeminly pissed of with Phoebe.
"And how is that ?" She asked, the sarcasm flowing through her voice, Phoebe smiled as she put up her hand and looked to the ceiling.
"Chris ? Chris, can you hear me ? It's Phoebe, I'm under attack, I need your help! Chris ?" Phoebe yelled, Piper huffed.
"That's your great plan ? It's never gonna work." Piper said as she rolled her eyes, but suddenly, bright blue and white lights appeared in their midst.
"Oh no ? Get ready." Phoebe said as she Piper joined her and Paige, Leo holding Piper's hand. Chris had appeared before them.
"What is this ? I thought you were under attack ?" He said, looking very suspicious, well, he always looked that way, but now more so than ever. The three sisters didn't say a thing, but emmediately started chanting.
"Power of Three, Hear of Plea
Take us to the memory
of this possible enemy.
Allow us to see his plan
See inside the mind of this man."
They chanted, before Chris could orb away, they all fell to the ground, Phoebe and Paige lying next to each other, Piper and Leo lying on the ground, still holding each others hand while Chris laid in the middle of the room. None of them moved.
Memory Lane :
Chris looked around him, they were still in the attic, but it looked different, older. He looked at the sisters and Leo staring at them, he had no idea what was going on. "What did you do to me ?" Chris asked them, he knew they used a spell on him, but he didn't know for what.
"We used a spell to see into your memories, so that we can know who you really are." Paige said as she crossed her arms, she was very content her spell had worked.
"You did what ? What about future consequences ? You can't just bring us here, this isn't for you to see!" Chris yelled, he was so angry that they did this to him, but even more afraid that they would find out who he really was.
"You drove us to it, Ch..." Leo started but stopped talking when he heard footsteps running up the stairs.
"It's okay, we're not really here, so no one can see us." Paige said, explaining again that they were just in a memory, Leo nodded as Chris sighed and threw his hands in the air.
They saw two boys chasing each other as they ran into the attic. One that Piper emmediately recognized as Wyatt. A small blonde haired boy, maybe 8 or 9 years old, being chased by another small boy with hazel brown hair, he was crying.
Chris emmediately knew this memory of him and Wyatt, he only hoped that he didn't call Wyatt his brother, or otherwise. Phoebe looked from the boys to Chris, she saw his eyes widen, she could feel it was because he didn't want them to know something.
"Wyatt! Give it back! It's mine!" The little boy with hazel brown hair yelled to Wyatt. Wyatt just laughed as he hid behind the book.
"Action figure!" The hazel brown haired boy, who Chris knew as himself, yelled. The action figure doll dissapeared from Wyatt's hand in a swirl of blue and white lights and appeared back into Chris's hands.
"What does this memory have to do with you ?" Piper asked as she looked from Wyatt to the other kid to the grown up Chris, Chris just shrugged.
"Catch me if you can." Wyatt said as he stuck out his tongue and orbed away, little Chris groaned and followed Wyatt in a swirl of blue and white lights.
"Okay, why did we just see that ? Where were you ?" Paige asked as she looked at Chris, he didn't respond, but Phoebe nodded.
"Since these are your memories, you must have been in it. You were that other boy, weren't you ?" She asked as she looked at Chris, he sighed.
"Not that I should tell you, but yes, I was. Now can we go back already ? You're not supposed to see all of this." Chris said, anger in his voice, but a tint of fear in his eyes, Phoebe saw.
"Sorry, no can do. The spell is suposed to show us your memories so we can see if you're really evil or not." Paige said, smirking, Piper looked confused as she looked at Chris.
"You knew Wyatt ?" Piper asked, but before Chris could respond to that, the room dissapeared in a flash of white smoke as they reappeared in a new memory.
Memory Lane :
"Okay, where are we now ?" Leo asked, Chris looked around, they seemed to be in a dark room, but Chris didn't remember where or when this was.
"I don't remember." He honestly respondes, the sisters said nothing, they just looked around them, to see if they could see Chris.
Then they heard some crying and suddenly, the lights turned on. They saw they were in a girl's bedroom, a boy, who looked a lot like a 11 or 12 year old Chris stood by the doorway, he had turned on the lights. He was looking towards the bed, to a girl with light brown hair, which was in a pony tail, who was crying. She seemed to be about 7 or 8 years old.
"What's wrong, Mel ?" Chris asked as he sat down next to the girl, she cried even harder and hugged Chris, who hugged her back, rubbing her back side, comforting her.
"W... Wyatt... H... He...B..Broke my D...Doll house." She cried in between sobs, Piper was shocked, her son breaking a little girl's doll house, no way!
"I'm sure he didn't mean to." Young Chris said, all though he didn't sound very convinced
"Y... yes he did. He... he laughed at me... Why does he have to be so mean ?" She cried as she now looked into young Chris's eyes, he just sighed.
Adult Chris looked at the specticall, he could clearly remember this now, this was only the beginning of Wyatt's tirade, and then he was just 13 years old. He avoided Piper and Leo's shocked stares as well as the stares of Phoebe and Piper.
"I don't know Mel, I don't know." Young Chris said, before everything turned white again, sending the Charmed Ones, Leo and adult Chris into an other memory.
The Future :
"Any word on Chris ?" A male voice asked as he sat in a chair, looking at his demon minions. It was Wyatt, his hair was dark blonde and very curly, his eyes turned black as his minions shook their heads.
"Leave me, now!" Wyatt said as he sent his demons away. He sunk into his own thought, ever since Bianca had brought Chris back from the past and he had escaped again, no one could find any information on his wherabouts. He was getting pissed of.
Sure, Chris was his little brother, but if he wouldn't stop opposing him, he would eventually kill him. He had let him live much longer then he would anyone else, he had proved that when he killed Bianca.
"Krista!" Wyatt yelled for his cousin to come, and sure, from the moment he had called out for her, she appeared in a swirl of black and dark blue orbs.
"Any words on the resistance ?" He asked his cousin, one of his only family members who had followed him to the dark side. The others joined Chris as he formed the resistance.
"No, it seems as if Chris covered his tracks very well. I can't sense them at all, he probably clocked them, you know, with his powers as half Elder." Krista said, Wyatt let out a groan of frustration.
"And your dear mother ? What about her ?" Wyatt asked as he thought about his aunt, the only of the Charmed ones still living, well, living, she was a white lighter now, officialy, she had died three years ago. But she had been brought back as a white lighter, but still, she wasn't such a big threat, she didn't have her Charmed powers anymore.
"No, no word on Paige. I have several dark lighters tracking her down, if they find her, they'll kill her." She said with no remorse in her voice, she had stopped feeling any emotions when she had joined Wyatt. Unlike Wyatt, she thought everyone who defied them, should die, including family. But Wyatt, he punished his family, but he didn't try to kill them, not all of them at least. But Paige had caused enough problems, and since she was technically already dead, he had no problem with finishing her all the way.
"Fine, you can go. But let me know if you find her." Wyatt said before ordering his cousin away. Other than her, he had two nephews, Phoebe's sons, who had followed them. Her daughter hand't, and Paige's twins and son hadn't either. But he sweared, if he could get them to join him, he would kill them. Even his own sister, Melinda. But Chris, he was much more reluctant on killing Chris, yes, he had tried, but he hadn't tried hard enough, he knew Chris would have survived his attack either way. He just wished his foolish brother would stop trying to save him and just join him.
Memory Lane :
"Enough already." Phoebe complained as they appeared in another memory. The first thing they saw was Chris sitting on the highest point of the Golden Gate Bridge. He seemed not much older than the last memory, maybe a year older.
Chris looked at his younger version, he knew what memory this was. He was 13 and he had just yelled at Wyatt for upsetting Melinda again. Then Leo had to come in and again defend Wyatt, as he always did, that's when he orbed up the bridge, a good place to think. He knew he was having a fight with Leo in this memory, he just hoped Leo didn't call him his son, or his cover was blown. He knew he wouldn't call Leo 'dad'. He hadn't done that since he was 9 and Leo had started to ignore him even more then he already did.
"Next memory please." Piper pleaded, she wasn't fond of heights, especially, since if she fell, she wouldn't be able to orb herself to safety. The others however kept their calm, including Phoebe, he also couldn't orb, but then again, she wasn't scared of heights.
"How old are you in this memory ?" Leo asked, looking at Chris, Chris didn't turn to face Leo, he just stared at himself. "13." He simply replied, the anger towards Leo flowing through his voice.
Before anyone could say anything else, they were distracted by a swirl of blue and white orbs. It was future Leo or memory Leo or whatever he was, they got a headache just thinking about it, all they knew was, that he didn't look too pleased.
"You shouldn't be so hard on him, Chris." Future Leo said, the Leo from the past, or their time, or whatever, watched as he looked at himself. He was wearing golden robes, which meant he was still a full time Elder. Leo sighed, he had hoped that in the future, he and Piper would have more time together with Wyatt.
"It's Wy's own fault, he shouldn't have done that to Mel." Future young Chris said, Piper looked at Chris in confusion, Wy ?
"Wyatt." Chris said without any further explanation, Piper nodded as she looked back to the other Chris and Leo.
"He was just playing a prank, he didn't mean to hurt her." Future Leo said. As Phoebe looked at Chris, she could feel what he was feeling, anger, and lots of it. As an empath, she could feel other people's feelings, but never as clear with Chris as she could feel them now.
"Fine, defend him, it's what you always do. Bye Leo." Future young Chris said before he orbed out, future Leo looked pissed of.
"Damn it Chris!" He cursed at himself before orbing away himself.
"Okay, why were you so angry with Leo ? How do you even know him or Wyatt ? And who's this Mel chick ?" Paige questioned Chris, he just shrugged, if he answered those questions, his cover was definately blown.
"Can't tell. Future consequences." He simply said, but Piper raised her finger at him.
"If I hear future consequences one more time I swear I..." But she was cut of when the white smoke appeared again, bringing them to a different memory.
The future :
"Aunt Paige! Aunt Paige! I need your help!" A young brunette yelled, she seemed to be about 18 years old. She was covered in blood from head to toe and was kneeling down besides a young boy about the same age, maybe a little older, maybe a little younger.
Paige Matthews orbed in in a swirl of white and blue lights, finding the source of the cry she heard. Then she saw it, Melinda Halliwell was kneeled down besides her youngest son, Henry Junior. Around them, the room was filled with crying people and possible several dead people too.
"What happened ?" Paige asked as she rushed towards her niece and son. She saw Melinda was crying.
"We were helping the resistance save inocents when they found us. Henry got hurt, but he's still alive. You need to heal him." Melinda cried, Paige nodded and placed her hands over Henry, a yellow glow forming from them.
Seconds later, the glow dissapeared from them and Herny Jr. opened his eyes, rubbing the back of his head, he sat up.
"Ah, that hurt too much for my likings." He said as he sat up, emmediately getting hugs from his mother and Melinda.
"Was it Wyatt's demons ?" Paige asked as she looked around, she would have to heal a lot more people, but first she needed to know who attacked. Melinda shook her head.
"No, the government. They were searching for witches again, half of the people here are humans, but you know them. They want to prove they're doing something to protect their own, at no cost." Melinda said as she sighed and looked at the massacre around her.
Paige shook her head in disbelief, how could the government be so stupid. Instead of bonding with the good guys, they're killing them all, shooting them, torturing them, burning them at the stake, so stupid. She stood up. "I need to heal everyone that can still be saved. You two need to go back to the safehouse, no but's, just do it. It's not safe here." She said, Melinda was about to protest, but Henry stopped her, he knew his mother was right. He took her hand and orbed her out and Paige began the healing.
Memory Lane :
"Okay, where the hell are we now ?" Phoebe asked as she looked around her, but she didn't have to ask that question, they were at the manor again, in the attic.
"Okay... what... ?" Piper began but stopped her questions when she saw someone orb in, not just one person, but two. It were Chris, again, not much older than the last memory, and, much to her suprise, he was holding Piper's hand. He looked very scared.
"No... I...no..." adult Chris said, shaking his head. This was one memory he deffinately didn't want to see, it wouldn't blow his cover, he knew that, but it was one memory, he had tried so hard to block out since it happened. Everyone looked at him as the colour drained from his face.
"Chris.. what... ?" Leo asked, but Chris shook his head, he tried so hard to hold back his tears, this was just too painfull for him too see. Seeing Chris wasn't answering, they looked back at future young Chris and future Piper.
"Chris, go! They could be here any second." future Piper said as she looked at her son, her eyes filled with fear and concern, something that almost never happened. Present Piper wondered why she would be so concerned about him in the future.
But before future young Chris could protest his mother's order, they saw several demons shimmering in, surrounding them.
"Oh my god." Piper, Paige and Phoebe all said as they looked at the demons, they were with about 20. Leo looked at their Chris, silent tears were running down his face as he watched himself and future Piper being surrounded by demons.
Phoebe could feel Chris's emotions more clear now than ever, he was so scared and sad. Her heart almost broke as she felt his pain, she didn't know why, but she grabbed his hand, holding it. Chris flinged, but didn't pull away from her.
"Chris! Go, now!" future Piper yelled at young future Chris, but he shook his head.
"No! I'm not leaving you." young future Chris said as he looked at the laughing demons, they all formed fire balls or energy balls, ready to throw them. Chris and Piper turned their back to each other and each faced a pack of demons.
Future Piper started blowing them up as Chris threw them across the room, appearantly he had the abbility to move things. But that wasn't all he could.
"Fire balls!" He yelled as he orbed the fire balls away from them and forced them back at them, vanquishing about 6 demons in the process.
"Waw, you have some seriously good aim." Present Paige said as she looked at the present version of Chris, who just shook his head, she frowned.
The demon fighting between Future young chris and Future Piper continued for several more minutes, untill all the demons were gone, and future Piper and Chris had won.
"Are you okay ?" Future Piper asked young Future Chris, he simply nodded and smiled.
"I always tell you you need me in battle." He joked as they both burst out in laughter.
Present Paige frowned, this was a good memory, so why was Chris so pale and sad suddenly. "I don't get it. This is a good memory, you guys kicked some demon a..." She started, but Phoebe stopped her.
"Paige..." She simply said as she looked from Paige to Chris. Paige looked at him now too, as did Leo and Piper. Tears were streaming down his face, guilt dripping of him along with sadness, much sadness. Piper almost felt sad for the boy, but that didn't change the fact that she still didn't trust him.
They looked back at future Piper and Chris, who were still laughing, but the laughing was about to stop very soon, present Chris knew as he looked at the last happy moment he ever shared with his mother.
And he was right, suddenly, they stopped laughing as not 10, not 20, not even 30, but almost 50 demons shimmered into the attic, Future young Chris was stunned by this sight, that it was too late for him to react. Future Piper saw what was coming.
"No!" She yelled as she pushed Chris into the ground, before he could react, one demon send a fire ball directly at her, it went straight through her chest as she fell to the ground. Future young Chris got up, he seemed pissed of. The present Charmed Ones, Leo and Chris just watched in pure horror, as present Chris kept shaking his head.
"Nooooooooo!!" Future young Chris yelled and before any of the spectators knew what was going on, future young Chris litt up, the spectators were blinded by the sudden flash of bright light and saw nothing, all they heard were the screams of demons.
The scene darkened again as the light dissapeared, now Piper, Paige, Phoebe, Leo and Chris saw clearly again. But all they saw was future young Chris standing in the middle of the room, smoke coming of his body, future Piper lying in the ground, she still seemed to be breathing, and ashes surrounding them. All the demons were gone.
"You vanquished all of them at once ?" Leo asked in disbelief, but present Chris said nothing, he couldn't snatch his eyes away from the scene before him. He never imagined he had to live through this twice.
"No! No, no no NO!" Future young Chris yelled as he bowed down next to Piper, she was in pretty bad shape, her hands were shaking, there was a small hole in her stomach, blood was pouring from her body as she took Chris's hand.
"Leo! Wyatt! Help!!" Future young Chris yelled as he looked to the ceiling, but nobody came. Why didn't they come ? Couldn't they hear him ?
"C... Chris... L...Look at me..." Future Piper said in between heavy breaths, her voice was shaking very hard and tears were running down her face as well as future young Chris's face.
"Leo! Wyatt! Please! I need help!" Future young Chris said, ignoring his mother's cries for him to look at her, he knew what she wanted. She wanted to say goodbye, but he wouldn't let her. She could still be healed, if only someone would come. Leo could heal, Wyatt could heal too, so why didn't they just come ?
"C...Chris...Honey...p...please..." Future Piper begged, future young Chris swallowed as he looked down at his mother. She smiled at him as he stared into her eyes.
"I... I...love...you C..Chris...I...I always...will." Future Piper said in between heavy breaths and sobs, future young Chris only cried harder.
"I love you too...b... but you have to hold on... okay ? I need you...you know I do..." Future young Chris said in between sobs, still holding his mother's hand, she just smiled.
"No...y...you...don't..." Future Piper said as she gave Future young Chris one last smile before closing her eyes, she was dead. But Chris wasn't ready to accept that.
"No, please, d...don't die... Help! Anyone, help me! Please!" Future young Chris cried as he burried his head in his mother's chest, crying even more.
No one of the spectators knew what to say, present Chris was crying, looking at the ground as everyone else looked at Piper, who was suddenly very pale too. No one thought about why Chris loved Piper so much or why she loved him so much, all they could think about was that she would die in the future.
"I guess Halliwell witches really do die young." Piper said, trying to make it sound like a joke, but unsuccesfull. Before anyone could say something to comfort her, do anything, the scene turned white with smoke again, transporting them to yet another memory.
The Future :
Henry Jr. and Melinda orbed into the safe house in a swirl of white and blue lights. Melinda struggled to let go.
"Let. Me. Go." She said as she pulled her arm away from Henry's grip. She could orb herself and hated when someone orbed her somewhere, but she hated it that he had taken her from that massacre, she should have stayed to help.
"Why did you do that ?!" She yelled, poking Henry Jr. in the chest with her finger, he knew very well how angry she could get and quickly orbed away, only to appear again behind her.
"Mom told us to get out of there and she was right, it was too dangerous." Henry Jr. said, Melinda snickered, causing Henry Jr. to rol his eyes.
"What ?" He asked as he looked at his cousin, who looked at the verge of breaking down, which would not be good, considering how powerfull she is.
"What ? I should have stayed there, I should have helped! I promised Chris I'd look after the resistance while he was gone, and you and Aunt Paige and everyone keep stopping me from doing so!" Melinda yelled, waving her hands in the air, if you didn't know her, you'd think she was an escaped mental patient.
"No, we keep stopping you from getting yourself killed. These mission are dangerous Mel. I almost died back there! Chris made me promise to keep you safe, and I'll make sure nothing happens to you." Henry Jr. said, the only reason he kept going one those dangerous missions was to protect her, otherwise, he thought he would probably be too scared to go.
"Protect me ? I'm 18! You're 17! I should be the one protecting you. But, whatever, I don't care anymore..." She said, and with that note, she orbed out, Henry Jr. wanted to follow her, but he knew she just needed to cool down.
The Future :
An upper level demon appeared in a hurdle of flames, bowing before his master.
"You summoned, sir ?" He asked as he was still bowing before Wyatt Halliwell, but keeping his eyes on him. Wyatt waved his hand, signaling him to stand up straight.
"I have a mission for you. A difficult one." Wyatt said as he stood up and walked towards the window of the Halliwell manor. He didn't face the demon as he continued to speak, he just stared at the window.
"I want you to find my sister, Melinda Halliwell. Don't kill her, just capture her." Wyatt said, still facing the window.
"Yes, sir." The demon said as he bowed once again, even though Wyatt wasn't looking, the demon knew he could tell if he didn't bow before him. His power was too great.
Suddenly, Wyatt turned to face the demon, utter and complete concentration on his face. "If anything happens to her, I will find you, hunt you down. I don't care if she kills you in the process, I have more demons, but I want her captured and brought here immediately. Understood ?" Wyatt said, and with that last note, his eyes turned pitch black, revealing how truly evil he was and how everyone, including his minnions, should fear him.
"I understand, sir. I will bring her to you as soon as possible." The demon said as he bowed once again, trying not to show his fear for his master, knowing in doing so, he could sign his death sentence.
"You can go." Wyatt said, once again waving his hand, the demon bowed one last time before dissapearing in a hurdle of flames again.
Wyatt opened his arms, as if he were reaching out for something, as he closed his eyes, concentrating. Only seconds later, he got what he wanted, the Book Of Shadows. It was his heritage, only he had full controll over it.
He sat back down, the book still in his hands, but he didn't open it yet. He just sat there, thinking about his plan. He needed to get Chris back to this time, before he changed the future in ways Wyatt didn't want them to change. And he had the perfect plan to do so, capture their sister, Melinda Prudence Halliwell. He knew she was the only living soul left that Chris cared the most about. If he threatened to kill her, and he let Chris know that, he would come back to save her.
And when he came back, Wyatt would have the chance, to either persuade Chris to join him, or finish the battle between him once and for all. But the plan would take time, capturing Melinda would not be easy, she was too well protected, too powerfull even. He would have to send several demons after her, one would not succeed, he knew that.
Memory Lane :
Present Chris didn't look at his family, he was still looking at the ground, trying to stop the tears that left his eyes. Phoebe didn't look at her family either, she just looked at Chris, he didn't know it, but she felt his heart break, and it was killing her.
"Hey, why all the sad faces ? It was a good thing we saw that, now we can change it." Paige said as she looked from Piper and Leo to Phoebe and Chris.
"Yeah, I get that seeing my death is upsetting, but why is it for you, Chris ? Why are, were, will we be, oh whatever, why are we so close ?" Piper asked as she looked at Chris, who just shook his head.
He finally looked up at the memory playing out before him. He saw himself, just days after Piper had died, crying in his room, he was wearing a suit, it was right after her funeral. He sighed, he knew what was to come, now they would all know who he really was, his cover would be blown.
Piper frowned as she looked at future young Chris who was sitting on his bed, holding a picture frame, crying his eyes out. She had never seen him so vulnerable, he was always strong and decisive as their white lighter. But now she realized, the one look in his eyes she had never been able to figure out, wasn't one of deception, but one of pain.
Paige looked at Piper, was this how they were going to live out all of Chris's memories, seeing their deaths ? Were they all dead in the future, or was it just Piper ? She shook her head, she tried not to think about it, they were here to figure out who Chris was, not to see how they died. This just was an important time in Chris's life, appearantly.
Leo had turned completely pale, he had no idea how Piper could stay so calm after she just saw herself die. And where was he ? Why didn't he respond to Chris's call ? Was he so obsessed with being an Elder that he didn't even care about his family anymore.
But whatever they were all thinking, their thoughts were cut of when they heard a knock on the door. Future young Chris looked up, his eyes filled with hurt.
"Go away." Future young Chris said, his voice was shaky, nothing like the voice of the Chris they knew.
But whomever had knocked didn't go away, instead, that person opened the door, revealing a very sad looking future Leo.
"Chris, we need to talk." Future Leo said as he walked over to the bed and sat down next to future young Chris, taking the picture frame out of his hands and looking at it. Now they all saw who the picture was from, it was a picture of Piper, smiling, she seemed so happy in that picture.
"Maybe you do, but I don't." Future young Chris said, not looking at future Leo at all. Now all the spectators heard the cockyness in Chris's voice again, as they were all too familiar with it.
"Look, I know you feel bad about what happened, but it wasn't your fault." Future Leo said, never even tearing his eyes away from the picture.
"No, it was your fault." Future young Chris said as he snatched the picture out of future Leo's hand.
"Hey! Why is my death Leo's fault ?" Present Piper questioned as she angrily looked at Chris, he just shook his head.
"I know... I know, son." Future Leo said, by which everyone of the spectators, except for Chris, gasped for air.
"Son ?" Present Paige repeated as she looked at Chris, as did Leo, Piper and Phoebe, but they were just too shocked to say anything.
"I'm not your son, I never have been. She was my mother, but you were never my father. You only proved that when you didn't respond to my call, you were just too busy training Wyatt again." Future young Chris said, standing up and looking at a wall, avoiding all stares of his father.
"What ?! You're my son ?" Present Piper asked, shocked by this new piece of information.
"Only if you and Leo have sex in the next couple of weeks, or I will have simply never existed." Present Chris said, by which both Phoebe and Paige, even though they were shocked too, laughed. Only to receive glares from Piper. Chris sighed, this wasn't supposed to happen, they weren't supposed to know who he was.
Present Leo simply watched at the scene playing out before his eyes. He let Piper die. Chris was his son, and appearantly he hated him. What did he do when that it all turned out so wrong ? He asked himself.
"Chris, please, I tried, I am trying, you know that." Future Leo pleaded to his son, but future young Chris just shook his head as he huffed.
"No, you're not trying, not with me. You barely even know I'm alive! You're always there for Wyatt and you try to be there for Melinda, but never me!" Future young Chris yelled, and apparantly he had made a good point, because future Leo looked defeated as he shook his head and left Chris's room.
Future young Chris looked pissed of, and suddenly, out of nowhere, electricity shot out of his hands, destroying half his room.
And if the spectators thought this memory was over, they were wrong, because before they could say anything, Chris's door flew open, as he was still destroying his room. The present Charmed Ones, Leo and Chris looked at the doorway, they saw the future Phoebe and Paige. They looked very sad, but even sadder as they saw how Chris was destroying everything in sight.
"Chris! Chris! Stop it!" Future Paige yelled, future Phoebe didn't do anything, she was holding her hand to her chest as she was bending over. She seemed to be in pain, but present Phoebe knew what it was, it was her heart that was breaking, she knew.
Future young Chris didn't stop when he heard his Aunt Paige's cries, he was to angry to stop, he needed to vent, and this was the only way he knew how.
Future Paige looked at future Phoebe, when she saw she was bending over, she knew she had to stop Chris on her own. She sighed, before orbing out and appearing behind Chris, throwing her arms around him, trying to calm him down.
"Chris, stop it! This isn't helping you, you need to calm down!" Future Paige yelled, but future young Chris wouldn't stop, he couldn't.
"God damn your half Elder part!" Future Paige cursed under her breath as she was still struggling to make future young Chris stop.
"Half Elder ?" Present Leo asked, more to himself then to anyone else, because it did make sense, he was an Elder after all, but, if Chris was his son, shouldn't he have just been half white lighter ? Can anyone really be a half Elder ? He asked himself, he looked at Chris, but at the point, he didn't seem to be showing any emotions. He had stopped crying and his face was simply blank.
"Chris, baby, we miss her too, very much. But she wouldn't want this for you, she wouldn't want you to destroy yourself. She loved you too much for that." Future Phoebe managed to say through her tears, and evidently it had worked, because Chris stopped destroying things, the electricity from his hands stopped, as he fell to the ground, still in future Paige's arms, crying.
"What did she mean by destroying yourself ?" Present Piper asked as she looked from the memory to Chris.
"I can't use my powers like that, or they could burn me up, kill me. Especially when I'm in that state." Present Chris simply said, not tearing his eyes from his memory, no emotions flowing through his voice.
"It's my fault, it's my fault. I let her die, it's my fault." Future young Chris cried in future Paige's arms as future Phoebe sat down besides him. Before any of the spectators could say anything, they were blinded by a flash of white smoke again, bringing them to yet another new location...
