Yeah, so I had a random idea of a powerful/completely overpowered entity showing up in the Charmed Ones' home. Don't worry; he will definitely be limited and his powers will be blocked off or something. No Mary-Sue. This story is written pretty much on an impulse, but if people actually like it I'll keep writing it. And no, for anyone who's reading Alliance, I'll keep updating that story as well. My writing methods are rather strange; they consist of writing on impulse rather than planning anything out. As a result, my updates tend to be irregular and the story may take unexpected turns. So, with that out of the way, here is my story and disclaimer: I own nothing other than my own characters.
It was extremely early in the morning, about 1 or 2 am, when Piper was woken by a loud crash. The dark haired woman jumped out of bed, waking her husband, Leo, in the process. The Whitelighter looked up, a curious look on his face. Piper bolted out of the bedroom door and ran down to the kitchen. She looked around in the kitchen; everything seemed to be normal. She turned and jumped in shock. Her younger sister, Phoebe, was standing in the doorway. "What was that crash?" Phoebe asked.
"I don't know," Piper snapped. She then saw a faint glow, similar to a glow from Orbing. She walked over to it cautiously. What she saw was a man, about twenty five years old, laying on the floor.
"Phoebe, why is there a man in our kitchen?" Piper asked.
"I don't know, but he's cute," Phoebe replied.
"Phoebe!" Piper smacked Phoebe on the arm. The man groaned and moved. Phoebe had a point, Piper conceded. The man was cute. He had dark hair and, if he were standing, would be rather tall. Maybe six one? He also looked very muscular. Piper picked him up, figuring that if he were a demon he wouldn't have crashed so loudly and collapsed on the kitchen floor. Piper carried him into the living room and dropped him on the couch. The man stirred, but remained unconscious.
Piper then realized something. "Why aren't Paige or Leo down here? There's no way that Paige didn't wake up; she woke up last night when I turned the bathroom faucet on," Piper said. Phoebe just shrugged and sat down on one of the chairs.
"What are you doing?" Piper asked.
"Well, do you want him to wake up in our house without any of us to tell him what happened?"
"Phoebe, we don't even know what happened. We just found him lying on our kitchen floor," Piper replied.
"All the more reason to stay here until he wakes up," Phoebe said.
Piper sighed and sat down on another chair. She had been sitting for about a minute when Leo came running down the stairs. "What happened?" Leo asked.
"Took you long enough," Piper snapped.
"Sorry, I figured you would have sorted it out by now and would be back upstairs telling me what happened," Leo said.
"Yeah, well, a mysterious man showed up in our kitchen and is currently sleeping on our couch. Phoebe wants to wait for him to wake up," Piper said.
"Well, we need to found out who he is, why he was in our kitchen, and what he wants from us," Phoebe said.
"We don't even know if he wants anything with us. Maybe he's like Paige; a half Whitelighter trying to figure out how to Orb properly. And he just happened to really mess up," Piper said.
Paige then stumbled down the stairs, muttering "Why are you shouting?"
"Wait, I turned on a water faucet and you wake up, but you completely sleep through the sound of a man crash landing in our kitchen?" Piper asked.
Paige woke up a bit more. "What man?"
"The one sleeping on our couch," Phoebe said.
Paige walked to the couch, saw the man, and immediately woke up. "Whoa, he's cute!"
Phoebe grinned while Piper rolled her eyes. The man's eyes opened. He looked at Piper, then Phoebe, then Leo, and finally Paige. His eyes seemed to linger on Paige for half a second longer than on anyone else. "You're the Charmed Ones." It was a statement rather than a fact, but Piper still said yes.
"And we also want to know why you were in our kitchen," Piper asked. Paige shot her a look.
"So, I landed in the kitchen? Well, looks like the Council decided to send me to you. Figures; they always did have a rather sick sense of humor," the man said.
"What are you talking about? What council?" Piper asked.
"I'm gonna go check with the Elders and see if they have any idea what he's talking about," Leo said. Leo Orbed out.
"Yeah, like the Elders will know anything," the man said.
"What makes you so sure the Elders won't know about you?" Phoebe asked.
"How often do the Elders actually know anything useful?" the man replied.
"Well, he's got a point," Piper said. Phoebe and Paige stared at her. "What? He does."
"Well, anyway, what's your name?" Paige asked.
"My name is Jerome. And since I have a feeling that this is coming; I'm not evil," Jerome replied.
"Well, okay. I'm Paige," Paige said, "this is Phoebe," she pointed to Phoebe, "and this is Piper." Paige finished by pointing to Piper.
"I know who you are. Interfering with you three is how I wound up in the kitchen. My... leaders cast me out of my home," Jerome replied.
"What do you mean leaders?" Piper asked.
"My people are very powerful. Each one of us has every power you could ever think, and then some. However, a society this powerful must have rulers to dictate how the power is used. The Council is a group of the most powerful of my people, and they dictate the rules. I broke a few and so they banished me. And cut me off from my powers," Jerome explained.
"Wait, so they stripped your powers?" Phoebe asked.
"No, not stripped. Inhibited. They cursed my body to be unable to handle the strain of using all my powers. All they left me with is Orbing and Shimmering. Any other power will drain my body of its strength and may destroy it," Jerome said.
"Great, so you're basically completely invincible and unbeatable, but you can't use any of it. Can you do anything else?" Piper asked. Paige shot her another look.
"I have some basic abilities and several inactive powers. I can cast spells, among other things, and cannot be killed. I may be unable to get hurt, though I doubt the Council would let me keep that power. I have also been trained in swordplay. My sword should still be in the kitchen," Jerome said.
"I'll get it," Paige volunteered. She left and went into the kitchen. She came back a few minutes later with a long sword. The sword had a red handle and was sheathed in a black metal sheath. Paige handed the weapon to Jerome, who unsheathed it and tested it. The blade was also black, and narrowed as it went towards the point. Jerome sheathed the sword, satisfied that it was fine.
"Is your sword magic?" Paige asked.
"No, just very sharp," Jerome replied. Paige frowned, seeming a bit disappointed.
"Well, if it's all the same to you, I'm going to bed," Piper said. Leo then Orbed into the living room.
"Let me guess; the Elders know nothing?" Jerome asked.
"As a matter of fact, they do know something. They know that you are extremely powerful, but they also suspect that you can't use most of that power," Leo replied.
"Well, they're right. I am, and I can't," Jerome replied.
"Great, now why don't we all go to bed and deal with all this tomorrow?" Piper said. Her family agreed and went to bed, leaving Jerome on the couch, thinking.
So, how bad is it? I'll be honest, I have little hope for this, but I figured it can't hurt to try. Leave me a review if you think I should continue, or if I need to give up on this story.
