Charmed - Piper and Piper/Leo Drabbles

Piper was stifling a giggle as she watched Leo struggling to zip his jeans.

“What’s so funny, Piper?” he asked, an unfamiliar edge in his voice.

“I was just thinking that marriage and fatherhood seems to agree with you.”

“What do you mean?”

“Well, you’ve put on a few pounds since you’ve been back . It’s not a bad thing.”

Leo breathed a sigh of relief as he finally got his jeans fastened. “Well, I did miss your cooking.”

Piper’s eyes twinkled. “I love you, Leo.”

“Even though I’m chubby?”

She smiled as she reached out and unfastened his jeans.

Title: Anticipation
Character: Piper

Piper slowly turned the key in the lock. Her hands were shaking with a combination of nervousness and excitement. The door opened and she took her first step into her club. Her club. She still couldn’t believe it. It wasn’t the five-star restaurant she had always dreamed of owning, but it was hers.

Well, hers and her sisters. She was still shocked that Prue and Phoebe had mortgaged the house to make her dreams come true. So much had changed for the three of them in the last year.

She looked around the club, eagerly anticipating the good times ahead.

Title: Nightmares
Characters: Piper, baby Chris
Written for: Charmed 100

Hush now, don't you cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
You're lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head

Piper woke with a start. She realized that she had been awakened by one of her babies screaming.

She rushed into the nursery, expecting to find a demonic battle waiting. Instead, as she made her way to Chris’s crib and picked the baby up, she realized he had just had a bad dream.

She held him tightly, rocking and cooing, trying to sooth her baby boy.

The baby finally settled down and Piper was able to gently lay him back in his crib. She watched him sleep for a few minutes enthralled by this miracle she and Leo had created.

Title: Worst Fears Realized
Characters: Piper, Leo
Written for: Charmed 100

Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game of life

“Piper you have to fight it!” She could hear Leo yell, but all she felt was the overwhelming pain that she had failed her sons and they were gone.

She fell to the floor sobbing. Her precious baby boys were lost forever because she wasn’t strong enough to protect them.

“Piper, the boys are fine. It’s Barbas. You have to fight it. Your sisters and your sons need you.”

Through her pain, Piper vaguely comprehended Leo’s words.

Barbas. Again.

She stood up, ready to fight.

“How many times do we have to vanquish your sorry ass before you’ll finally die?”

“Hi honey, I’m home.”

Piper smiled as her husband walked up behind her and planted a kiss on the top of her head as she sorted new recipes.

“How was your day?”

“It was perfect. I took the boys to playgroup and then we stopped at the park. When we got home, I fed them lunch and put them down for their naps. They’re at the park with Phoebe now. How was yours?”

“It was wonderful. I watched over the east coast today and there were no problems at all.”

“Paige offered to watch the boys tonight so you can come to the club with me.”

“Sounds great.” Leo looked at the recipes his wife was sorting. “What are you making for dinner?”

“I’m going to try a new recipe for lemon pepper pork tenderloin. I just need to run to the market for a few ingredients.” Piper stood up and put the recipe in her purse so she wouldn’t forget anything she needed to make dinner.

Leo stopped her with a hug.

“Aren’t you glad you listened to me and trusted the avatars?”

Piper gave her husband a soft kiss. “I’m glad we’re able to be a normal family.”
