"Did we have to come to a Hellmouth
?" Piper gritted between her teeth for the eightieth time.
"'Fraid so," Paige said. She scanned the shadows for anything lurking mysteriously.
"Think the vampires would be afraid of you?" Phoebe asked Paige. "You were their Queen."
Paige gave her a look.
"Hello," a voice said.
All three women jumped, screamed, and whirled around. Piper had frozen him and Paige had sent a fallen tree branch at him before they even realized it.
Piper let out an, "Eep!" and grabbed the branch before it hit the young man. She waved the branch scoldingly at Paige. "Don't hurt the innocent bystanders!"
Piper hurriedly unfroze him. He blinked and said, "Woah. You guys must be witches."
The Charmed Ones glanced at each other. "You knew you were frozen?" Phoebe asked.
"'Course. That was cool, by the way. I was going to ask if I could help you guys, but it looks like you've got that covered." He began to walk away.
"WAIT!" all three women exclaimed.
Paige asked, "Do you know where we can find Frotochal? He's a demon. We want to vanquish him."
"I'll take you to Giles'. It's a few blocks this way."
