Piper's eyebrows rose in surprise as she lifted out a red ribbon, knotted in the middle. Where did this come from? she wondered. She was just reaching for the phone to call information when she heard a vibrating sound behind her. She turned to see a tall metal shelving unit, loaded with heavy canned goods, teetering. She watched in shock as it began to fall toward her. Piper threw up her hands-a reaction that usually froze time. But the shelving continued to fall. For the space of a heartbeat, Piper felt stuck in place, unable to summon the power that would save her. She screamed as the shelf swayed forward and the heavy cans tumbled through the air. What's happening to me? Piper asked herself. What's going on with my powers? Why didn't they work?
A brittle tension gripped the room as Paige sat up and flexed her fingers. She hesitated, and then boldly thrust out her hand. Remote!" Leo frowned when nothing happened. A moment later the remote control slowly dissolved into orb particles, which drifted into Paige's hand and slowly re-formed. At first glance the device seemed fine. On closer inspection, she noticed that the lettering formed nonsense words and the buttons were out of line. "Oh, boy," she winced. "That's definitely worse than yesterday." "Which is what I wanted to find out." Leo kept his tone matter-of-fact when the three sisters looked to him for clarification. "Something happened to start the power drain in the first place, and whatever it was, it happened to each of you again since yesterday." The girls looked baffled. "Nothing happened," Paige insisted. "Yes, it did," Leo said firmly. "Nothing else can account for the diminished powers and the excessive physical and emotional side effects you're all experiencing. You've all encountered something in the past few days that you've never run into before. "And whatever it was, you came into contact with it twice."
I'm glad i ran into you, Paige," josh said. "Why?" Paige asked apprehensively. She leaned back against the clammy brick wall of P3's alley. "Because," Josh continued, leaning in. His voice got deeper, almost robotic. And his face began to change too, darkening into a sinister glower. Paige could feel his breath-hot and fetid-gust onto her face. "You've got my heart." Paige glanced down and saw Josh's hand reaching toward her chest. His arm was shaking, as if infused with some sort of electricity. And as his fingertips brushed the bare skin above the low-cut bodice of her dress, his nails instantly grew into glinting, razorlike talons.

rapped in paradise "I'm sure you already know this, but I have to tell you, your home is beautiful," Paige said, walking along the periphery of the library, taking in the leather-bound titles as Micah followed closely behind. "And I'm sure you already know this, but so are you," Micah said. "It was so important to me that you love this place as much as I do," he continued quietly. "But I knew. I knew the moment you saw it that you had fallen in love." A warm rush raced over Paige's skin as he moved his hands to her waist. She looked up at him, her eyelids heavy. "How could I not?" she said. "It's ... fascinating." As they gazed into each other's eyes, Paige felt the same dizzying sensation she'd experienced at the restaurant the night before, but it was okay. She was beginning to enjoy it-this feeling of being lost in his eyes. "You haven't even seen the best part yet," Micah said, his voice throaty. "The best part?" she repeated, temporarily incapable of forming her own thoughts. "The garden," Micah said, his eyes flashing with excitement. "You have to see the garden."

A Deadly Prediction With a knowing smile, the tarot reader walked over to Prue, Piper, and Phoebe's table. "I am Elena. You wish me to look into your future with my cards?" This is going to be a joke, Prue told herself as Elena laid down the first card. Elena's hand began to tremble. Prue jerked her gaze to the fortune-teller's face. It grew pale, a ghostly white, as though all the blood had been drained from it. "What is it?" Prue asked, trying to ignore the irrational prickle of dread that was raising the hair on the nape of her neck. "Th-this card has always been in the deck, but I've never drawn it during a reading," Elena stammered. She set it on the table, and Prue saw that it showed a crumbling black tower struck by lightning. "What does it mean?" Prue asked. Elena trembled again. "It is the most powerful card in the deck," she said slowly, her voice an ominous whisper. "It means that darkness will surround you."

Withdrawing her toe and standing elegantly next to the bath, Paige told the second servant that the jazz station he had just selected would be more than adequate for her needs. 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.
All IN All, paige thought, GOLDEN GATE Is A super spoocky place with NO ONE ELSE Around. "Timothy?" she called, hoping he was here somewhere, maybe just hidden by the roling clouds of fog. "Where are you?" A full minute passed, maybe more, before he answered. "Back here, Paige," he said, sounding strangely distant. "In the trees." She looked to where the sound of his voice had come from-a thick growth of trees across the grassy patch and flower be is from the windmill. Staring through the mist between the trees, she finally spotted a pale oval she thought must be Timothy's face. "What are you doing in there?" she asked with a nervous chuckle. "Come on out here." "It's safer in the trees," Timothy replied. "Safer?" Paige echoed. "Safe from what?"
00* SNAkES. "Ahh! Ahh!" Doreen shifted from one foot to another to avoid a mass of wiggling green, yellow, and black snakes. She was terrified and fell into Larry's arms. "Okay, dear. Time to go." Larry slung Doreen's arm over his shoulder and helped her stumble forward. He started into the next tunnel and stopped dead. "I hope there's another way back." "Me too." Paige shone her flashlight inside the narrow stone corridor. The passage floor was covered with snakes. Several began shedding their skins. "Cross-country," Tammy said, taking charge. Ignoring the snakes sliding out of the rock pile, she climbed it. "This way." Paige let Joyce and Daniel go first, then steadied Larry as he carried Doreen up the rock pile. When Paige reached the top, she realized that cutting through the woods was only a slightly better alternative than taking the tunnels. The ground was alive with thousands of writhing snakes.
Lucile Marshall was absolutely terrified. "The evil moaned. the evil's been set free," she Then, as abruptly as she'd lost her composure, Lucile regained it. She stood up straight, shaking free of Paige and Phoebe, and looked Maxwell Harrington in straight in the eye. "You fool. You pompous, arrogant idiot," she said. Then her eyes rolled back in her head and, gracefully as a silk handkerchief, Lucile Marshall folded in a dead faint to the floor.

flie first incantation Phoebe's heart pounded as she clutched The Book of Shadows. Maybe I should just put the book back, she thought. But she couldn't. She had to read on. " 'Hear now the words of the witches/ " she chanted. " "The secrets we hid in the night.'" A bolt of lightning shot through the sky, followed by the rumble of thunder. Phoebe jolted upright. Could the incantation summon lightning and thunder? she wondered. She shook her head hard, trying to knock that crazy thought away. She returned to the book. " 'The oldest of gods are invoked here. The great work of magic is sought.'" Lightning tore through the sky again. Then a strange light faintly glistened in tike center of the room. Phoebe laid her trembling hands on the ancient book. Had she somehow summoned this light by reading the incantation? What would happen if she finished it? the Ancient Power. Bring your powers to we sisters three. We want the power. Give us the power! Based on the TV series.
