Author's note: My first crossover fic. Hope you like it! Remember to review!
Don't own any of the character's but Pepper!
"Mom, Aunt Piper, Aunt Pheebs, Aunt Paige! I'm home!" Pepper Stevens woke up after having the strangest dream. She'd had the same dream every night that week. She didn't know who the people in her dream were. Just that she would yell for them and then she'd always wake up. Pepper ran her hand over her face before rolling over and looking at her alarm clock. It flashed 7:20am so Pepper rolled out of bed to get ready for the day. Pepper took a shower and got dressed before leaving her room and heading to the kitchen. She walked in and her aunt Tabitha was standing at the stove. Pepper sat down at the island counter and rested her head on her hand.
"Good morning, did you sleep well?" Pepper shrugged and she rubbed her head. Every time she woke up after having the dream her head hurt.
"I had that dream again. Still have no idea who these people are." Tabitha tapped her fingers on the counter and Pepper caught on to it.
"Who knows? Maybe they are someone you're supposed to meet," Tabitha said. Tabitha turned away from Pepper and Pepper knew that Tabitha knew something.
"What do you know?" Tabitha moved towards the kitchen door but Pepper threw up her hands to stop her. Tabitha stood frozen in place. Pepper walked around so she was in between Tabitha and the door. Pepper threw up her hands again and Tabitha unfroze and ran into Pepper.
"It's not nice to freeze your aunt. Come sit and I'll explain." Pepper nodded and followed Tabitha into the living room.
"Okay, what is it I'm not being told?" Tabitha sat down on the couch and then patted the spot next to her. Pepper sat down and crossed her arms over her chest.
"So, first off I just want you to know that I love having you live with me." Pepper sat up a little bit and stared at her aunt.
"What do you mean? Am I going somewhere? Are you?" Tabitha held up her hand to stop Pepper from talking.
"Just hold on a second, take a deep breath. Let me begin by helping you understand your dream... The people in your dream are family members on your mother's sides. They are your mother's sisters." Pepper nodded slowly understanding what her aunt was saying.
"Why am I dreaming about them though?" Tabitha reached over and took Pepper's hand.
"I don't think it's a dream but more of a premonition. I believe you are foreseeing the future." Pepper looked at her aunt confused. She didn't have the power of premonition. She still wasn't sure how she had the power to freeze.
"But I don't have that power. Or at least I don't think I have that power. Do I?" Tabitha shrugged.
"It's possible. You see, your mother's side of the family are witches also. One of their powers is the power of premonition. They also have the power to freeze time and telekinesis." Pepper scratched her head.
"How do they only have three powers and we have so many? Why didn't you tell me they were witches?" Tabitha laughed. Everything she told Pepper, Pepper had a question.
"Well, we are different types of witches. Your mother's side is more of a 'practical' witch. They use their powers for the greater good and fight evil beings. Now, our side of the family is more of a 'whimsical' witch. We have powers and can do anything we want. We don't get attacked by evil beings and we don't use our powers for the greater good. We are more the type of witch that you would see on TV." Pepper nodded but still had a confused look on her face.
"Before we get into all the different types of witches. Why do you think I had a premonition about my mom's family? I never met them. I don't even know where they live." Tabitha nodded and then stood up.
"Come have breakfast and I will try to clear up those questions for you." Pepper nodded and then followed Tabitha into the kitchen.
Tabitha made breakfast for both herself and Pepper before sitting down and explaining to Pepper how she was going on to the witchy realm. A place where whimsical witches lived because they don't die. They can live on forever. Time moves at a different pace in their blood. They don't age as quickly as everyone else. Tabitha was looking forward to slowing aging down because she had lived in the mortal realm for so long. Now she was ready to retire in the witchy realm.
"So basically your leaving me with a family that I don't know. To live with a mother that gave me up a birth?" Tabitha nodded.
"Sort of, I have some bad news. You know how your dad had already left for the witchy realm and you aren't allowed to visit or see him. Well, your mother had been killed. She is no longer alive." Pepper looked up from where she was eating her cereal.
"What? So both my parents are gone?" Tabitha nodded and reached for Pepper's hand.
"I am so sorry for your loss." Pepper shrugged. She was sad that her mother was dead. But she didn't know her before she died so it really didn't make a difference.
"What if I don't want to live with my mom's family?" Tabitha looked at Pepper and rubbed her hand.
"It's what's best for you. They have the power to protect you. Your powers from that side of the family had just started coming in. Evil beings will start to come after you." Pepper nodded. She knew her powers were changing and she had gained new powers. She didn't understand them but everything was starting to make sense now.
"I'm gonna miss you," Pepper said. Tabitha nodded and leaned forward to kiss her nieces head.
"I'm gonna miss you too." Pepper nodded and then stood up to put her bowl in the sink.
"Aunt Tabitha, why did I just start getting my powers from them now?" Tabitha looked up at her niece before signaling for her to sit back down.
Tabitha explained how when she was born her powers were bound by her great grams. They were only to be unbound when she turned 18 or her mother passed away. When Pepper started experiencing new powers at 15 then Tabitha got suspicious and looked into it only to find that Prue Halliwell had died. Now that Pepper was 17 Tabitha got more nervous. She knew what needed to be done. Pepper had to be returned to her destiny. She had to go to the Halliwells.
