Chapter 11: Reactions
As soon as Piper and Leo arrived in the living room of the manor, Piper whirled to face her oldest son and her daughter’s Seer. It didn’t even seem to register to her that Henry, Paye, Blake and Ryder were in the room, along with everyone who had been in the cave moments before.
“Do you two care to explain yourselves?” she asked furiously and continuing without giving Wyatt or Josh a chance to reply. “Six months? You hid this for six months? You didn’t think we should know?”
“Um, what’s going on?” Henry asked as Piper paused to take a breath.
“These two,” Piper motioned to where Wyatt and Josh were standing, Wyatt’s arms still around Josh, “have apparently been dating for the last six months!” she exclaimed.
it!” Paye exclaimed, blushing slightly as everyone turned to look at her. “Well, not in the sense that I actually knew, but I kinda thought they might be.”
“Well, apparently they have been,” Piper said. “And Melinda, Chris, Tara and Darla knew about it too! And don’t think you aren’t in trouble for not telling us,” she said as she looked at her two youngest children.
“What?” Mel asked incredulously. “Why? It wasn’t our place to say anything. It’s Wyatt and Josh’s business, nobody else’s.”
Chris, Darla and Tara all nodded their agreement.
“She’s right,” Cordelia pointed out, “they would have told us eventually. It’s their business who they tell and when. And from what Mel said, they didn’t even tell the people who did know, they found out on their own.”
“You don’t have a problem with this?” Piper asked as she turned to look at Cordy incredulously.
“Problem?” Cordy repeated in confusion. “Why would I have a problem with it?”
“Yeah, Mom,” Wyatt added a bit angrily, “what problem do you have with this?”
“You’re too old for him!” Piper exclaimed. “He’s only sixteen, Wyatt!”
Darla let out a very unladylike snort at that statement, causing Piper to whirl on her.
“Something you want to add, Darla?” she asked.
Darla smirked at the witch. “Just that you’re being incredibly hypocritical right now,” she replied.
“Exactly how old is Leo?” Darla asked. “He was born in, what, 1924? That’s makes him about ninety-seven, right? And you’re forty-eight, right? That puts your age difference at forty-nine years. So I think you lecturing them on a four year age difference is a bit hypocritical.”
Piper’s mouth opened and closed a few times as she searched for a response to Darla’s words.
“She’s right,” Tara added. “There’s also a ninety year age difference between Cole and Phoebe. Which, again, is way worse than four years.”
“And neither of those have anything on the two hundred and fifty-four year difference there was between two of my friends,” Cordelia added with a smile, glancing quickly at Melinda before turning back to Piper.
Piper’s eyes went wide as she stared at Cordelia. “Two hundred and fifty-four years?” she repeated in disbelief.
Cordy nodded. “Yup. And that’s not even taking my other friends into consideration,” she said. “One of my ex’s dated an ex-demon who was, like, eleven hundred years old.”
“See, Mom?” Chris asked rhetorically. “Four years really isn’t that big of a deal.”
Melinda nodded. “They’re happy, Mom. How can that be bad?” she asked.
Piper struggled to find words as she looked at her two youngest before turning to look at Wyatt and Josh, the defiant look on Wyatt’s face letting her know that he didn’t care what she thought, he wasn’t giving Josh up. Sighing in defeat, she nodded her head slowly. “You’re right. They’re happy, that’s all that matters,” she said. “And compared to eleven hundred, four years really isn’t that bad, I suppose.”
Wyatt and Josh relaxed slightly as Piper reluctantly gave her blessing, knowing that, while she didn’t completely approve, she did accept their relationship. Turning to look at the others in the room, the two waited for everyone else’s reactions.
Leo just sighed as he looked at his son, “As long as you’re happy, you won’t hear any objections from me. It’ll take some getting used to, though.”
Phoebe, Cole, Henry and Paige all nodded their agreement.
“Hey, as long as I don’t have to watch the two of you make out, I’m good,” Blake said and Ryder nodded.
A slow smirk spread across Wyatt’s face as he looked at his cousins. “Oh, so no doing this?” he asked as he swiftly turned Josh in his arms, pulled him close and pressed their lips together.
Josh froze in surprise for a moment before his arms came up to wrap around Wyatt’s neck. He deepened the kiss, pressing his body as close to Wyatt’s as he could get it.
Cordelia snorted in amusement as almost everyone’s eyes went wide and Paye let out a short ‘eep’ while Melinda, Chris, Tara and Darla didn’t even bother trying to hide their amusement.
Wyatt broke the kiss and loosened his grip on his boyfriend slightly, Josh turning back around and leaning back into Wyatt’s chest.
“So no doing that, then?” Wyatt asked Blake, laughter coloring his tone.
“Oh Gods, I think I’m scarred for life…” Ryder murmured.
Chris snorted in amusement. “No you’re not,” he said, “just wait until you walk in on the two of them, then
you’ll be scarred for life! I swear, I couldn’t look at either of them without blushing for a week!”
Melinda just nodded her agreement. “That’s something I never wanted to see.”
“You two are…” Piper started in shock as she looked at a blushing Wyatt and Josh before trailing off and turning to Chris and Melinda. “And you two have…”
Mel nodded, “Why do you think we don’t orb into Wyatt’s room anymore? Or Josh’s? Or pretty much any room that can afford two people privacy?”
Piper let out a tiny whimper, not wanting to accept the fact that one of her children was apparently having sex.
“I want to give them the sex talk!” Darla exclaimed as she grinned evilly at Josh and Wyatt.
“NO!” Wyatt and Josh exclaimed in unison.
“Oh, come on,” Darla said. “Do you really want to have that talk with your parents?”
“We’ve both already had
that talk,” Josh pointed out, hoping Darla would just drop the subject.
“Well, yeah, but those were the ‘when a boy loves a girl’ version of the talk,” Darla countered, “this would be the ‘when a boy loves a boy’ version. Do you really want to have that talk with your parents? I mean, if you thought it was embarrassing the first time around…”
“Oh Gods,” Josh muttered, a look of horror crossing his features.
“Ya know, I think we’ll be fine,” Wyatt said. “I mean, the basics should still apply, right? I don’t think we really need another talk. Besides, I don’t think you’re really qualified to be giving that talk, what with you being a straight woman and all.”
Darla merely arched an eyebrow in response. “Honey, I was a vampire for over four hundred years,” she told him, “I know more than enough to be able to give you two this talk.”
“It could be worse,” Tara pointed out, “I had a friend before I died who would have given you a sex talk that lasted hours…complete with pictures, videos and diagrams.”
Wyatt and Josh looked at her in horror, along with most everyone else in the room. Cordelia just laughed and nodded her head.
“She would have,” Cordy agreed. “Along with detailed instructions.”
Josh and Wyatt exchanged a look before turning back to look at Darla. “We’ll take Darla’s talk,” they said.
Tara grinned, “That’s what I thought.”
“As amusing as this conversation is,” Paye cut in, “I have a question.”
Everyone turned to look at her curiously and Paye turned to look at Phoebe.
“How come you didn’t know?” Paye asked her mother curiously.
“What?” Phoebe asked, not sure why her daughter thought she should have known.
“Well, shouldn’t you have been able to feel their emotions?” Paye asked. “Shouldn’t your empath abilities have picked up on what they were feeling?”
Phoebe blinked for a moment as she realized that Paye was right, that she should have felt something from the two boys but hadn’t.
“Empath-blocking potion,” Josh answered and everybody nodded in understanding.
“Alright, you two,” Darla said, “you’re coming with me. Time to have a little chat.”
Wyatt and Josh swallowed thickly, not looking forward to the talk they were about to have but also knowing it would be useless to try to run. They could run and they could hide, but Darla would eventually catch up to them. And knowing Darla, if they tried to avoid this talk, she would make it as painfully embarrassing as she possibly could. So it was better for them to just go along quietly and get it over with. With a sigh, the two stepped over to Darla and she put a hand on each of their shoulders before the three of them disappeared in a swirl of orbs.
I hope you all liked it! Next chapter will be back in L.A. Sadly, I won't actually be writing the boys' talk with Darla, as amusing as it would be. Mostly because I don't think I'd be able to do it justice and I'm pretty sure your imaginations can come up with funnier more interesting talks than what I'd come up with. Anyway, hope you liked this one!
