Holiday Firsts – Part 10

Thursday, December 02, 2004 – 4:29pm, San Francisco

Piper handed her mother the teddy bear and watched as she put it in her carry on, “Not the suitcase?”
Patti shook her head, “She’s gets this in the airport.”
Phoebe looked over, “How will we know what they look like?”
“I’ll know,” Patti assured her.
“Just like you knew that giving them away was a good idea,” Prue mumbled.
Piper glared at her sister, “Prue!”
“Okay, so while you guys are gone, I’ll keep an eye on Grams,” Prue was quick to change the subject.
“Nobody needs to keep an eye on Grams,” Penny entered the room. “Besides Grams is going to New York when the time is right.”
Sam walked into the room behind her, “One very well hidden photo album.” He handed it towards Patti.
“Thank you,” she hugged him tight. “Have I told you lately how great you are?”
Sam kissed his wife, “Not lately. And while we’re fine, I still don’t agree with your course of action.”
“Glad I’m not the only one,” Prue smirked.
“Prue, stop!” Phoebe growled.
“You, stop. Be realistic. This is not just going to be a beautiful reunion. There are loads of issues – this will get so ugly before it even thinks of getting better. They’ve never even heard your voice.”
Phoebe narrowed her eyes, “And you never told us they existed! This,” Phoebe moved her hands back and forth between herself and Prue, “Will get ugly before it thinks of getting better.”
Prue rolled her eyes, “If this is such a good idea, why isn’t Grams going?”
“Because they should have a little time with their mother and sisters.”
“When they called, they were only expecting time with their mother,” Prue reasoned.
“That’s not why you’re not going,” Phoebe excused.
Piper sighed, “No, but she has a point. They weren’t expecting us. Maybe . . .”
“Piper, they knew I was going to invite you. Paige said it was fine.”
“But who suggested it – you or her?”
“I don’t . . . I don’t remember.”
Piper sighed, “And she’s right about them never hearing our voice.”
Patti shook her head, “It’s okay. Look, I’ll call and double check, just to make sure.”
“No,” Piper stopped her. “I’ll call,” she said quietly and looked at Phoebe.
Phoebe nodded her agreement, “Can you . . . can you speakerphone it?”
Patti nodded, “That is a good idea, Piper.”
Piper took a deep breath, “Okay, where’s the number?”
Patti nodded and handed it over, “It’s after seven there. I’m guessing they should be home.”
Piper went to the nightstand, dialed the number, and hit the speakerphone button.

New York

“Mmmmm,” Pollux groaned to the sound of the ringing phone. She felt Drew’s arm wrap around her and was confused for a moment. ‘Oh yeah, invited him back after funeral, comforting embrace led to . . . deal with later, get phone now.’ Pollux yawned and reached a hand over, “Matthews.”
“Matthews?” Phoebe said confused. For some reason, it had not dawned on her that their last name would be different.
Piper waved a hand for her to stop, then leaned towards the phone, “Pa . . .” She stopped when Prue shook her head. Piper took another deep breath, “Pollux?”
“Uh – huh,” Pollux yawned. Realizing it wasn’t a work call, she was headed back towards sleep.
“Pollux, its Piper.”
“And Phoebe,” the youngest sister in the room added.
Pollux thought a moment, “Hello,” she said heavily.
“We just . . . just wanted to make sure it was okay that we . . . that we came with Mom tomorrow.
The phone was silent for a moment. Drew raised up and looked at Pollux, realizing she had tensed slightly. Pollux closed her eyes and thought about how bad Paige wanted this. Finally she spoke, “Yes.”
Piper let out a breath, “Are you sure.”
“Yes,” the anger was returning slightly.
Piper was taken aback for a moment, unsure of what had fueled Pollux’s rage. Prue saw the confusion and a little hurt flash across Piper’s face and stepped forward, “Pollux, how’s it going?”
“Been better,” Pollux answered honestly and more calmly once she recognized Prue’s voice.
Phoebe shook her head, “Great, she doesn’t want us.”
Prue held up a hand, “Pollux, Phoebe thinks your bad day has to do with us.”
Pollux yawned, “Nope. Work sucks.” She started running her hand through Drew’s hair as he laid his head on her chest and hugged her tighter.
“Want to talk about it?” Piper offered.
“Anything but, actually,” Prue and Pollux answered together.
Pollux laughed a bit and shook her head, “Yep.”
Prue sighed, “Pollux, do you feel like talking at all?”
Piper looked over at Prue and mouthed, ‘How?’.
Prue smiled, “Short answers,” she whispered.
Piper threw up her hands and made a mocking ‘of course’ motion. Phoebe just sat on the bed, deciding it best to listen. Piper decided to try again, “You’re sure it’s okay.”
“I’m sure.”
Patti sat on the bed next to Phoebe, “Pollux, would you mind if we talked to Paige since you’re not in a talking mood?”
“Not here. Long day at work.”
“I see,” Patti sighed.
Phoebe found her voice, “Is it okay with her if we come?”
“Very much so.”
“You’re sure?”
Patti hugged Phoebe, “Is it okay if we call her later with the flight arrangements? You sound sleepy.”
“That works.”
Patti looked at Prue. Prue shook her head and rolled her eyes, “Pollux, we’re going to let you get sleep now.”
“I’ll talk to you later, okay?”
“Sounds good. Still not coming?”
“No. Sorry.”
“All good. Bye.”
“Bye,” Prue hit the button on the speaker phone.

Drew raised up and looked into Pollux’s eyes, “Biological family?”
Pollux nodded, “Yeah.”
Drew looked around the room, then to Pollux’s naked body, then to his own. They were wrapped together in sheets that were anything but uniform on the bed. “Did we really?”
Pollux laughed, “Yes, we did.”
He smiled, “How?”
“I honestly don’t know.”
“No, not at all.”
“Does that mean we can do it again?”
Pollux leaned up and kissed him, “Many, many times.”
“Starting now,” Drew put himself completely on top of her and began kissing her neck. Both of them groaned when Pollux’s cell phone rang.
“Damn it,” she growled and grabbed the phone. “Matthews . . . When? . . . Where? . . .” Pollux looked unsurely at Drew, then turned her attention back to the phone, “Yeah, call him. Have him meet me there . . . meet them there in fifteen.” Pollux hung up the phone and looked at Drew, “Your cell is going to ring. They think they found the gun in a phone booth downtown.” She got up and started moving around the room collecting clothes as his phone rang.

He pulled the jacket tighter around him. It wouldn’t be long now. He had seen the cops respond to the distraught Mother’s call about the phone booth. He had planted the gun to get CSI on the scene and his plan had worked perfectly. Putting out his cigarette, he raised up, put the scope to his eye, and watched the phone booth. It wouldn’t be long now. Before New York City knew what happened, he was going to deplete the CSI population by at least seventy-five percent.
