She’s waited for this night all year. She lays in bed now, eager for the last few minutes of the fading year to tick away, thankful her husband’s gone somewhere on another White Lighter mission, and waiting as patiently as she can to be made whole again.
It starts like it did when they were children. Fingers slip underneath the covers and press against hers. Another hand, one she knows as well as her own, holds hers. Tears spring to Piper’s eyes. She’s waited all year for this, after all, and she knows they only have tonight.
“Prue!” she sobs as her older sister, long dead, takes her into her arms. Prue kisses her forehead first as her hands gently cup Piper’s cheeks. “I’ve missed you!”
“I’ve missed you, too, but I’ve been with you every step -- “
“It’s not the same!”
“I know, baby; I know. But do we want to spend this time crying or -- “
Prue doesn’t have to finish her question. Piper already knows what she’s going to say. It’s the same thing she asks her every year as All Hallow’s Eve blends into All Saints’ Day. She answers her the same way she always has. She kisses her long and deep, their tears slipping into their kiss. For a while, they can be whole again, together again, and although Piper’s grateful for this time they do have, she knows one Halloween night a year will never be enough to give her sister all the love she holds.
