"Oh, now look who's there", said Phoebe as she opened the door of the Halliwell mansion. "You've got some nerve showing up here, after all that happened." There was some movement in the hall behind her as her sisters came to have a look.
The coach was visibly uncomfortable standing on the sunny porch. "You know what I've come here for", he finally managed. "But you're going to make it hard, aren't you?"
A hint of a smile touched her pretty face. "No idea what you're talking about."
"Oh alright", he sighed. "I guess I deserve this. Look. I was out of my mind. I didn't mean those things I said. We've had some time to cool down. I've rebuilt the team. It's actually in pretty good shape again. But it's not the same without you. We miss you. And I know you miss playing, don't you?"
She shrugged. "Maybe we do. Doesn't mean we'll play for YOU."
"Oh come on woman, give me a break. I've said sorry. I've even donated to charity. What do I have to do? Get on my knees and beg?"
This time she smiled for real. "Now there's a sight I'd like to see. Whatcha think, sisters?"
So, I've actually completed the rebuild of Walpurgis 2
, and Borak even gave me my accidentally retired +AG Catcher back. Took the better part of a year at the pace I could manage but I'm glad I stuck with it! The donation drive certainly provided some motivation towards the end. And it fits really nicely with the fluff, too! :-)
