Of course Patty hadn't thought it would take thirty seconds to convince younger, unmarried versions of their parents to trust Alex, but as the seconds ticked by, she grew increasingly more worried. She kept hold of her brother's hand, watching his physical body. The astral projection power had always been strange for her to watch when Alex and their mom used it. She understood the basics of how it worked, but the physical toll it could take was a little out of her comprehension. She'd never seen her mother use it to this degree, so it was hard to say whether Alex was straining or not. His physical body was merely asleep. But she glanced at the clock again. A couple minutes had passed all ready.
"Come on, Alex. You're worrying me here. Hurry up and say the magic words." Not that he could hear her, but Patty felt the need to express that where no one could hear her. She had always kept her emotions close to her heart, much like Prue had done when she was younger. Finally, she couldn't stand it anymore and she gave Alex's hand a squeeze. "Hey, I know you probably can't hear me, but you should really come back soon. Soon as in now." Because he was stretching himself well beyond what she knew he was capable of doing. It was dangerous to do that for longer than a couple minutes.
Prue listened to Alex, seeing the regretfulness enter his voice and body language. Now she was thinking perhaps he was telling the truth. His words about her mother hadn't exactly been crossing the line, it was just more of the fact Prue would always hate thinking of how her mother had died. It had affected her so deeply and changed the course of her entire life. It hadn't been until the year before she would die in her world that she even found what she really wanted in life. She'd finally pursued her love of photography as a career. The only thing she lacked was love, but she'd found that in this world, with Damien. And as Alex said that her being with Damien had saved him, she couldn't help but smile, looking over at Damien.
"That is true. It's hard to pick up on the P thing unless you've been around and know that history." Prue looked back at Alex, able to tell how hard it was for him to keep his astral self sustained here. "I'm seriously impressed he can project himself this far." She paused, taking a moment to consider that. When Damien took her hand, she looked back at him and nodded. "Yes, we should." Knowing the strain astral projection had, she looked back at Alex. "I'll write that spell and we'll meet you back in Lawrence in a few minutes. Are you at the complex?" Well, that would be obvious considering Patricia had scryed for them, which required things of theirs to complete. The only question was which apartment they should go to when they got there. All ready, Prue was starting to think of a spell that would teleport them back there. No need to bother Mel for this. There was no telling if her niece had gotten caught with someone from the future.
