When both were gone, she locked the door, slid off her robe, and removed the towel from her hair. She eased herself into the bath, which felt heavenly, and held her breath as she dunked herself, wetting her hair. Then she got out once more, put on her robe, and orbed away in a shimmer of blue-white light. She reappeared in her room in the Towers, a very different kind of wardrobe laid out for her. Phoebe and Piper had already changed, with Chloe fussing about them, handling a few last-minute details. The young woman didn't even jump around an orb anymore, which was nice. She had the makings of a truly terrific Wiccan. "My alibi's in place," Paige said, tossing off her robe and trying not to think about what she might do if their imminent encounter did not go as planned. In moments she was dressing for war.
