Unexpected things...

It's been about three years now since Samantha came into this world, and she was a very active child.Since Sam's birth I'd switched from working at the office to working from home to watch her and spend more time with her. And Wesley finally won me over and got me to marry him, plus he had great taste in jewlery. For the most part I loved being married to him, although there were days where we'd fight over little things, such as Wes complaining that I could be way too high maintence, and me complaining that he didn't spend enough time at home.


Roger had eventually moved out of the house, but still visits enough that he makes Wes complain that he never really moved out. Speaking of Wes he spoils Sam like crazy and she has him wrapped around her little finger. She's his little princess, it's amusing to watch her play with him. She's getting so big and she's a very curious little girl, she's always asking Wes what things he's working on, and she reads all the time. I get to tease Wes endlessly about that. I'm always telling him she gets the 'big book love' from him and her fashion sense from me.


It was just another Tuesday morning at Casa MorganPryce, I was in the study I shared as an office with Wes, doing some paperwork. Sam was in her bedroom playing with her dolls. I'd been busy with work for the last hour. Sam walked into the study just as I finished off a case file. "Mommy can you come play with me?" I smiled at her. "In a few minutes sweety I'm almost done with this." Sam pouted and held up her barbie."But I wanna play Barbies" I sighed. "Not now Sam" Next thing I know the Barbie that had been placed on the desk went flying into the wall behind me just missing my head. I looked up at her, then down at the now headless doll that lay on the floor by my chair. "Sam.. what did.." I couldn't even form a real sentence. I picked up the phone and dialed Wesley's cell.

Three years seemed to fly by. Sammy was getting more beautiful and intelligent each day and Lilah actually loved married life. It only took a year and a half, a 3 carat ring, and a night I'm still paying for. Lilah had begun to work at home to be around more while I built up my own private investigation. I handled human and non human cases alike. With my and Lilah's combined reputation I had no problem with business.

Roger was like that brother-in-law that you just can't get rid of. He was always around decorating or singing with Cecelia. The Italian woman had moved out too around Sam's second birthday. She came twice a week but the usual upkeep was done by Lilah and I. Sammy called Roger uncle and Cecilia auntie. She loved to read and play dress up. She'd even join me for rugby games whenever they were on. My little angel was perfect in every way.

So far my Tuesday morning was going smooth. I was looking over some recon notes for a case. Preparing for going into the field was the main component of a good execution. I jumped when I felt the vibration in my pocket. Pulling it out I saw it was Lilah. With a smile I opened it.

"How are my two favorite women today?"

I sighed happy that he picked up on the first try. "We were great until barbie lost her head.." I looked back down at the headless doll that lay on the floor. "Literally. I need you to come home" I told him as I glaned over at Sam, who hadn't moved from the sofa by the door since I picked up the phone.

"Come home? For a headless barbie?", I chuckled."She's your daughter yes but she has tomboy tendencies. Put her in her room for a while for breaking a toy."

I sighed at Wesley's answer. "No she didn't take it in her hands and tear the head off of it. Wes it was sitting on my desk and it flew off the desk and hit the wall hard enough to behead it, and Sam didn't even touch it, she hasn't moved from the sofa since she put the doll on my desk. So can you please just come home?"

Hearing that Sam had made the doll fly across the room I closed the file."I'll be right home."

I was back to the house in minutes. I knew there was a small chance of me passing supernatural abilities to Sam but I thought it would take longer to appear. Hurrying up the stairs and into the office Sam was sitting on the couch, Lilah in the desk chair.

"good" I said then hung up and looked over at our daughter. I smiled at her. "Daddy's coming home " And shortly after I'd said this Wes came home and straight up to the study. I looked at him as I got out of the chair. I bent down and collected the headless barbie and the head and set them on the desk. "Care to explain what's going on?" I asked him. Sam just looked confused.

"What do you mean? Like I know exactly what's going on...", Lilah's face was set in stone and I knew there was no way to talk out of it."Yes...I knew she'd develop powers one day..."

I narrowed my eyes at him when he tried to play the innocent act. "Don't play stupid with me."I snaopped at him. After a second he finally knew that wasn't going to fly and told me the truth. I looked at Sam. "Sweetie go play in your room, mommy needs to have a talk with daddy."

Sam just nodded then giggled when I said I had to talk to Wes. "Daddy's in trouble" She sing songed as she walked out of the study and back to her room.

I shut the door and then turned back to Wes. "So when exactly did you plan on cluing me in to the fact that she'd have powers?" I asked as I folded my arms across my chest.

Sam's little song made me feel worse about what was to come. Closing the door behind her I let out a sigh."I have powers..strong ones at that. By the time of her conception I was a warlock in my own right. It only makes sense I would pass them on."

As I listened to him talk all I wanted to do was throw things. I let out a frustrated sigh. "You still could've told me. So much for having some semblance of a normal life.How exactly are we supposed to control this?" I swear I could kill him. "Oh and then there's the firm, they find out about this we're screwed." I got the look. "What just because I left them doesn't mean they aren't keeoping tabs on me, they'll find out and you know how relentless they can be.I can't believe you didn't tell me."

"I didn't think it would appear so early.", I fell onto the couch."Maybe thirteen when she hit puberty. Our daughter is about ten years ahead of herself."

"Yeah well it did so now we have to figure out what to do about it, and by we I mean you." I walked back over to the desk. I was still pissed at him for not telling me that this could possibly happen, I mean I knew Wes knew some magick and had a good amount of mojo, but I never even thought that something like this could happen. I sat back down at the desk.

"I can bind her powers.", I replied walking to her."As far as the firm that's already been covered. Fred helped me find a masking spell. Their people won't know about her."

I looked at him and sighed. I didn't want to be mean and do such a thing to her, but then again I could just see her trying to use it to do god knows what, and I couldn't imagine how strong she'd be with time. "If we were to bind them, would she get them back later on down the road?" I was still mad at him,but I also knew that the powers were a part of Sam, and that taking them away might do more harm to her later on than good. "And oh goody The Texas Twig actually managed to be useful.."

"Binding them won't take them away...they'll just be controlled in a way she can't control them yet. They can only be used for spells instead of day to day activities."

I sighed as I leaned back in the chair and looked at a photo of us and Sam. "What if we just do nothing; just let her grow into them, and teach her when to use them and not use them?" The more I thought about it the more I didn't like the idea of binding her powers. And I was pretty confident that we could handle teaching her right from wrong with her powers.

"Let her grow into them? You mean like teach her ABCs, 123s, and how to control her powers?"

I didn't want to bind her powers but teaching any under five how to control themselves was a very draining feat.

"Sure,unless you don't think you're up for the challenge" I smirked a little. It was no secret that Sam was a very active three year old. It was hard keeping up with her somedays now as it was. Wes liked to continually blame me and my coffee addiction for Sam being an overly active child. "She's a very smart little girl, it shouldn't be too hard to do."

"Her intelligence isn't the problem...her emotions are. One's power is strengthed with hightened emotions."

"So you're saying that we should bind her powers?" I asked as I pushed the chair forward again. I didn't get was so hard about this, we either bind them or don't I couldn't think of a third option.
forsakenwatcher
Apr. 15th, 2007 02:17 am (UTC)
"I don't really want to because she'll possibly hate us later on in life.", I swallowed."We'll just have to work with her on controlling them."

I sighed. "That's bound to happen anyway once she hits teen status, but yeah we can work with her. It'll be fine. So now we have the fun of trying to explain it to her, because I'm sure she's very confused about what's going on."
forsakenwatcher
Apr. 15th, 2007 04:41 am (UTC)
"She will go through her rebellious stage sooner or later.", I replied."Maybe then I'll have no choice but to bind her powers."

Apr. 15th, 2007 02:09 pm (UTC)
"Yeah well we'll worry about that when it happens." I got up from the chair and headed out of the room. I walked down the hall and into Sam's room. I waited for Wes so we could explain this to Sam together. I just hoped that she'd understand what was going on.

When we walked in Sam was levetating her Barbies. With a sigh I lowered them. Sam looked confused before looking over at us."Hey there Sammy."

I sighed when we walked in and saw Sam and several floating barbies. I watched Wes lower them back to the floor with just a flick of his wrist. I was begining to wonder if our plan of just teaching how to use her powers would really work. I stayed back and watched Sam and Wes.

Sam frowned when her Barbies were suddenly back on the ground. She looked over at her parents as they came into the room. "Daddy, my Barbies can dance" she smiled up at them.

I sat down on her bed and watched them, ready to jump in to help Wes if needed.

Apr. 15th, 2007 03:25 pm (UTC)
Sitting down on one of her insanely small chairs I grinned."They can...do you know why they dance?"
It wouldn't be easy or quick but I figured the earlier the better.

Apr. 15th, 2007 03:34 pm (UTC)
I stayed on the bed watching as Wes sat down in one of Sam's chairs. I might just have to help him get back up after this.

Sam looked at him and shook her head. "I wanted them to dance and they did" She smiled as she started brushing one of the doll's hair.

"Earlier when you wanted Mommy to play and she said no you made it fly across the room and hit the wall.", holding the doll I made it float."You're very special Sammy."

Apr. 15th, 2007 03:50 pm (UTC)
Sam frowned. "Mommy wouldn't play cuz she was busy.." She'd been mad when told no and the doll had flown across the room and hit the wall hard. She looked up from the doll at Wes. "I'm a princess" was her only reply as she continued to brush the doll's hair. I looked at Wes and sighed this wasn't going to be easy like I thought.

"Yes, you are a princess, Daddy's princess. Daddy can do what you can too.", I made the Barbie do a flip."But you see Daddy controls himself. You can't allow yourself to make things fly when you're angry."
notquitegood
Apr. 15th, 2007 04:07 pm (UTC)
She smiled as he agreed with her. She then looked at him, as he made her Barbie float. "How come you can make her float too?" She completely ignored the part where he told her she couldn't just get angry and make things fly around hitting other things.


I looked at them not sure what to do.

Apr. 15th, 2007 04:10 pm (UTC)
I let out a sigh, Sam was completely ignoring what I said."Because you get your powers from me.", I replied."Just like how you have my eyes you have my abilities."
notquitegood
Apr. 15th, 2007 04:21 pm (UTC)
"Oh" I looked at Wes and sighed. I decided that I'd try talking to her abou this. "Sam sweetie, daddy's right you can't get angry and make your Barbies fly into walls, it's the same as not getting angry and psyichally throwing them at the wall or at someone. Okay?" I glanced at Wes wanting to know how we were going to be able to tackle this. I didn't know what else to tell her, unlike Wes I didn't have any flashy powers to help me demonstrate my point.
forsakenwatcher
Apr. 15th, 2007 04:25 pm (UTC)
She looked up at Lilah with her big blue eyes.'Do you have powers too?", she asked.

I wanted to slap my forehead but I refrained. I knew children were hard to raise but having one with magickal abilities makes things more complicated.

Apr. 15th, 2007 04:44 pm (UTC)
I sighed at her question. "No sweetie I don't have powers." I told her. I glanced at Wes again, he didn't seem to be liking how things were going. And I was at a loss for what else we could or should do.

"Samantha.", my use of her full name in a serious tone made her stare at me."Luv, you can't use your powers when you're angry. Just like Mommy said, it's just like breaking something with your hands. If you throw a tantrum and use your powers you will be in trouble."

Apr. 15th, 2007 05:12 pm (UTC)
Sam looked at him, giving him her full attention as he talked. "Okay Daddy" I sighed happy that she finally seemed to understand what we were talking about.I kissed her forehead. Then went back to the study to finish up my paperwork.
