:: Heather was still trying to get a hold of Sean. Holly was in the shower, trying to relax after the confrontation with her sister, Hallie. Heather was trying to call up Sean, knowing that that was where Hallie was headed next. No answer. Sighing, she hangs up the phone and looks around. What had disturbed her most about Hallie's and her encounter was the look in Hallie's eyes. Hallie had never looked so cold, so insane before. A dark feeling rose in Heather's body, as she realized that Hallie might just be for real this time. Knocking on the door broke Heather out of her thoughts. ::

Heather Halliwell
Who is it?

Tyger Lilly
It's me, Heather. You called and asked me to come, remember?

Heather Halliwell
I did what?

:: Heather gets up and answers the door. A distressed looking Lilly holding a sleeping Katie stood on the other side. Heather narrowed her eyes in confusion and stepped back to allow her friend to enter. ::

Tyger Lilly
Don't you remember calling me? I was half-way back to the hotel to meet Sean when you called and said to meet you here, it's important. So whats up?

Heather Halliwell
Lilly... I didn't call you.

Tyger Lilly
How can you not of called me? You said that you needed me for something and to get to your hotel right away.

Heather Halliwell
How long ago was this?

Tyger Lilly
About five minutes ago...

Heather Halliwell
I still don't understand how... Oh shit, no!

:: Heather leapt off her bed and tried calling Sean again. Again, no answer. His phone, much to her chagrin, was turned off. Heather tried calling the hotel. The crisp, female voice told her that Mr. Graves wasn't accepting in coming calls at this time and to try back later. ::

Heather Halliwell
Fuuuuck meeee.....

Tyger Lilly
Heather, what is going on?

Heather Halliwell
*sighing* It's my sister, Hallie. She's up to her old tricks... I underestimated her this time.

Tyger Lilly
Hallie? But I thought she was in jail?

Heather Halliwell
She must have found someone to bail her out. Probably the same people she's working for, whoever they are. Lilly, stay here, because I fear you might be in danger. I'll be right back.

:: Without giving Lilly the chance to object, Heather flies out of the room. She runs down two flights of stares, stopping in front of another hotel room door. She knocks loudly, and Heff Bentley answers in no time. Heff is dressed in her combat gear, black boots, black pants, a red tank top and sleeveless black mesh over top of it. ::

Heff Bentley
Whats up, Heather?

Heather Halliwell
I think she went to see Sean. We need to tail her, quick.

Heff Bentley
Will weapons be needed?

Heather Halliwell
Nothing heavy. Bring the handgun.

Heff Bentley
Want your katana?

Heather Halliwell
No. We have to hurry, though... I don't know what Hallie has in mind, but I know it's nothing good.

:: Heff retreats back into the room. She puts a gun belt around her waist and slides two hand guns on each side. She checks the rest of her weapons and hides them before closing the door behind her. The two women, ready for battle, head out into the night. ::

~*~ Meanwhile... ~*~

:: The room is dark as Sean enters. He throws his keys on the dresser and walks towards his bed. With a start, he realizes there is a female figure on the bed. Thinking it's Lilly, he smiles and walks over to her. ::

Sean Graves
I was hoping I would get some alone time with you tonight.

:: Sean leans in and passionately kisses her. Hallie reaches her reaches her arms up and kisses him back, pulling him down on top of her on the bed. She then breaks the kiss. ::

Hallie Halliwell
Of course you were, Sean. I knew you'd miss this between us eventually.

:: Sean instantly backs off, realizing he's not sharing his bed with Lilly. ::

Sean Graves
Heather? Wha... What are you doing in here and in my bed of all places?

Hallie Halliwell
I've missed you, Sean. I've been hiding it for a while because of Lilly... But there's just no denying it anymore. About how much I want you... Need you...

:: With each pause, Hallie reaches up to plant kisses on Sean's neck as if to prove her point. Sean begins to breathe heavily and closes his eyes as Hallie kisses his neck. ::

Sean Graves
Heather... You know we can't do this...

Hallie Halliwell
That's just it Sean... We can... Lilly will never know, I know I can keep my mouth shut... Well, unless you want me to open it for you, then I'll make an exception, but let's stay on subject for a moment.

:: Hallie continues to kiss Sean's neck and then moves up to his lips and the two start kissing again. Sean then pushes Hallie back and tries to look her in the eye in the dark. ::

Sean Graves
Heather, this isn't like you. You don't want to hurt Lilly like this and you should know the last time we tried something before a wedding of mine, it almost got us both killed.

Hallie Halliwell
I'm changing Sean... I'm starting to put myself first. I know what I want, and I know what I need. I want you, I need you. And when you kissed me back, that told me that you felt the same way. Kiss me again, and I'll prove it.

:: Hallie reaches up and wraps her arms around Sean again, drawing him in for another kiss. Sean tries to resist Hallie's advances, but his feelings for Heather are overwhelming and he leans in for yet another kiss. ::

Sean Graves
Lilly might not be as psycho as Destiny, but there's no telling what she might try if she were to ever find out about this.

Hallie Halliwell
Honestly Sean, you worry to much. Don't you think that if I couldn't handle myself against her, I'd be here in your bed right now?

Sean Graves
Yes, but it's brazen and unlike you enough that you are even here. What has gotten into you tonight, Heather?

Hallie Halliwell
I'm tired of being the good girl everyone expects me to be. Perfect Heather Halliwell, having to live-up to my spot light as this tough chick wrestler. It's about damn time I stop doing what the public wants, and start doing what I want.

:: Hallie pulls Sean on top of her again, and wraps her legs around his waist to hold him there. The two kiss passionately for a long time, the desire to be with one another growing. Sean suddenly breaks the kiss and gets off of Hallie. ::

Sean Graves
Let me turn on the light. I want to be able to look into your eyes when we do this.

:: Sean walks over to the light and turns it on. His eyes adjust to the light for a moment, then he turns to the bed. With a start, he realizes the woman on the bed is not Heather. He can feel the anger growing in his body at the woman's sinister grin of triumph. ::

Hallie Halliwell
Why the look, Sean? Come make love to me, we both know you want to.

Sean Graves
Hallie... I'm going to be as nice about this as I possibly can. What the fuck are you doing in my bed?

Hallie Halliwell
*laughing evilly* Taking back whats mine, Sean. You. I'm back for good, and now that your kiss has told me that you want me too, you're not going to get rid of me that easily.

Sean Graves
I'm not yours. You misled me into thinking it was your sister. I never would have touched you if I had known it was your carbon copy face.

Hallie Halliwell
Now that's not very nice, is it Sean? We were having such a good time, too. Come back to the bed, lets finish, and THEN act like you don't want me, when we both know you do.

Sean Graves
I want you about as bad as I want a tooth ache. Get out of my room. Did I not once tell you that if I ever saw your face again, I'd kill you?

Hallie Halliwell
Yes, but I thought that was some sort of kinky sex game. You aren't going to kill me Sean, because you could have very easily done it by now. It's never stopped you before, am I right?

:: Sean stops dead. Hallie smiles, knowing she's just touched a nerve with him. Sean clenches and unclenches his fists, trying hard not to hit the smiling female on the bed. Hallie slides off the bed and walks right up next to Sean. ::

Hallie Halliwell
That's right, Sean. We both know your past... Rapist and murderer among other things. But unlike everyone else, I don't look down upon you for that stuff. I understood where it came from, and I love that side of you.

Sean Graves
You're sick, you know that? Get out of my room.

Hallie Halliwell
Not yet, Sean... I need you to do me a little favor... Well, I need you to promise me that you'll do me a little favor.

Sean Graves
No way, I'll never do a god damned thing for you.

Hallie Halliwell
Not even if it's for Heather's benefit? *Hallie eyes Sean slyly.*

Sean Graves
Why would you ever want to do anything to help Heather? All you've ever done to her was make her life hell. Why can't you just leave her alone for once?

Hallie Halliwell
You understand what revenge is like, Sean. It consumes you, so much so, that it gets to the point where the blood of the hated one is on your hands. That's what I want Sean. I want Heather to be nice and well, because when I start breaking her down, by the time I go for blood, it's going to be just the way I want it.

Sean Graves
You want me to keep Heather safe just so you can have more fun killing her? Hell no, Hallie, not doing it. I love Heather, get the hell out of my room. Now!

Hallie Halliwell
Fine Sean, I'll go for now, but this isn't over between us. I can see it in your eyes, the dark side is lurking. The Dark Prince wants to burst out from inside you, but you hold him down so deep. Let him go Sean... With him in contol, you could do great things, powerful beyond belief. I could help you with that, Sean. Face it, we're perfect for each other.

Sean Graves
You're out of your mind. Get out before I kill you.

:: Hallie only smiles at Sean before walking obligingly out the door. She pulls her leather jacket on and once outside, she lights up a cigarette. Men are staring at her as they pass her down the street, but she ignores them. A dark alley way not far from Sean's hotel appears before her. Hallie looks around, making sure that no one is following her, and walks into it. There is silence for a few seconds as she takes a drag, then she speaks up. ::

Hallie Halliwell
Dakon? Kavan? Are you back here as planned?

:: There is silence for a few moments. Then two candles light up, and two hooded figures appear. They set the candles down on garbage cans and remove their hoods, removing the two men searching for Sean Graves, Dakon and Kavan. ::

Dakon
Can it be done?

Hallie Halliwell
Yes, he can be turned back to the Dark Alliance. I saw it in his eyes, The Dark Prince is still there, and as strong as ever. He only needs the right trigger to bring him out completely.

Kavan
Do you know anyone or anything that can cause this to happen?

Hallie Halliwell
Those two little Spicks he hangs out with might be the key. They seem to be as close as brothers to him...

Dakon
What about the women? Heather Halliwell and Tyger Lilly? Could either of them be used effectively?

Hallie Halliwell
Do what you will to Lilly and her daughter... Heather is mine. Don't forget our deal, boys.

Kavan
Heather Halliwell is indeed yours to eliminate. We must be off, there's much work to be done.

Hallie Halliwell
Wait... Heather could be used to turn Sean back to us... But it's complicated. I'd have to keep her alive a bit longer.

Dakon
What were you thinking?

Hallie Halliwell
My original plan. If I could find an effective enough disguise where no one would know the difference between me and Heather, then this could work to perfection. He'd turn to the dark side for her.

:: Hallie nods at the two men as she backs out of the alley. They blow out their candles, and darkness surrounds them once more.::

~*~ Not so far away... ~*~

:: Heather and Heff are making their way back to Heather's hotel. Heather was thinking hard on the clips of conversation she'd heard Hallie share with the two men. Who were they? Who was she working for? What were they planning? ::

Heff Bentley
Do you think it's going to come down to a physical fight?

Heather Halliwell
Between me and Hallie, yes. When it comes to that, I don't want anyone else involved in that.

Heff Bentley
Fuck that, Heather. You're my sister till the end, any battle you fight, we fight together.

Heather Halliwell
I really appreciate that, Heff. But I can't afford to have anyone's blood on my hands. Hallie seems to have gotten smarter since last time, which means we can't take her lightly. I don't want anyone else involved, if I can help it.

Heff Bentley
I'm already involved. You brought me here tonight, you got me involved. Now you're going to have to keep me involved, because I'm not going to let you go this one alone. Not this time.

Heather Halliwell
That means a lot, Heff. Not a lot of friends, no matter how close they are, would stand by each others sides, knowing their lives were in jepordy.

Heff Bentley
Like I said, we're family. Besides, I love the thrill of a fight. This is right up my alley, things have been way too tame for a long time.

Heather Halliwell
Becoming a bounty hunter might not have been the best thing for you. But you know what, it's gonna pay off in the end, so I can't complain too much.

Heff Bentley
Besides, with me being with the hunters, it'll keep you off any list someone might try to put you on.

:: The girls reach the hotel again. They stop off at Heff's room first. Heff goes inside and comes back out a few seconds later, handing Heather a sheethed Katana. Heather takes it and nods. ::

Heff Bentley
Take it with you... Just keep it with you in case you need it. You've got the skills of any bounty hunter, so use them if it comes to that.

Heather Halliwell
I will... I have to go get Lilly. I'm going to walk her back to her hotel.

Heff Bentley
Good idea. Check with me in the morning before you leave.

:: Heather nods, and the girls hug. Heather goes back up to her room, and motions for Lilly to come with her. The whole way back to her hotel, Lilly asks Heather questions about whats going on, but Heather says nothing. She keeps her eyes scanned for any suspicious figures or activity around them. They make it back to the hotel safely, and Heather bids Lilly a good night. She turns around and heads back to the hotel. On the way, a sudden pain crushes her hard on the back of the head and she blacks out...::
