Chapter 1

January 2026:

Feeling slightly lightheaded, Paige landed with a thud in what used to be her bedroom. But to her surprise, it did not look like Baby Wyatt’s room either. Especially, as it was currently being occupied by a tall, slim girl glancing at herself in the mirror.

“Hello!! Hey!! Can I talk to you?” yelled Paige out loud to catch her attention.

“Hang on. Just trying to adjust my aura” replied the girl while splashing some perfume on herself.

Few minutes later, she noticed Paige just as as she was done fussing with herself in the mirror.

“Hi Paige! When did you get here?”

“Um. Just now” replied Paige wondering who in the world this teenage girl could be. But the moment that thought crossed her mind, her eyes fell on a picture frame that stood on the bedside table. A picture that included herself hugging the girl that stood in front of her at the moment. Feeling warm and relieved, she picked up the frame and kept staring at it.

“Yeah. The photo we took last year, Can’t believe it’s been a whole year since then” commented the girl who stood still gazing at Paige.

“Yeah. Can’t believe it” agreed Paige with tears glistening in her eyes for reasons she couldn’t figure out. And the moment she set the picture back on the table, she noticed the words on the frame “PAIGE & PENNY HALLIWELL  - HAPPY NEW YEAR 2025”.

“Penny Halliwell ! You are Penny Halliwell? Oh my God!” yelled Paige out loud feeling a shockwave flow through her entire body.

Noticing Paige’s reaction and the words spilling out of her mouth, Penny felt warning bells ringing in her head and with a quick wave of her hand threw Paige in the corner of the room. Surprised by that action, Paige felt disoriented and groaned weakly,” What was that for? You are Penny. You are family. As far as I know, family doesn’t do that to each other.”

“If you are family, you wouldn’t have been surprised to see that picture. I have taken that picture with Paige Matthews and that is the best memory I have of her” yelled Penny.

“I am Paige Matthews and as far as I know, the only Penny Halliwell I know or I should have known is my grandmother” yelled Paige back at her while trying to get back on her feet.

“Wait. What are you saying?” asked Penny looking warily towards Paige.

“This picture was taken in 2025. Well, I am from 2003. So why don’t you tell me who you are and we will call this fight even” replied Paige with a menacing tone.

“I can’t” replied Penny in a broken voice.

“Why not ?” asked Paige feeling annoyed.

“Future consequences” answered Penny instinctively.

Feeling slightly defeated by that answer, Paige sat on the bed and let out a breath while pouting her lips slightly. Noticing the annoyed-Paige look that she had seen plenty of times in her past, Penny sat beside her and chose to change the topic by asking, “So, how come you are here from 2003?”

“Huh ? Oh yeah! I wore these boots from Penny’s box and they brought me here. But we thought they belonged to Grams. Never thought I would come to the future.”

“We thought? As in you, mo-. I mean more witches from the power of three?”

“Yeah” replied Paige having a nagging feeling that Penny was hiding something crucial.

But the moment she opened her mouth to question Penny regarding those potential secrets, she heard a very familiar voice shouting out loud, “PENNY!! PEN!! YOU IN HERE?”

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette.
