Who: Cole and Ruby
When: Early evening
Where: Winchester house
What: Having a talk
Cole Turner didn't think he could be any less confused than when he first showed up. Just before the arrival, he had just aided Leo in saving Piper and fully intended on returning to Phoebe for what he hoped could be a good night out, maybe with steak and a fine wine. But it didn't seem such was possible now, if the current Halliwell's reactions were of any indication. He still couldn't fathom himself turning into The Source, which was usually done by ceremony, and there were names in line of succession.. which he definitely wasn't on, considering he was marked for death by the highest order of them. Plus he was only a hybrid, demon and human. None had been candidates before. There was a possible way around it, however. Any demon who killed one or all of the Charmed Ones could probably be assured the next in line after the previous Source's demise. Which was just as unlikely in his case since he'd never turn against them. And yet both those here had insisted he was still evil. Though.. that wasn't completely unforeseen, most of the sisters had not accepted him before either. They wouldn't seem likely to now as well, or anytime soon, if at all. He thought about it for a while and decided that it didn't matter if he was liked by them, his only concern was that it didn't turn into a vanquish first, ask later type of situation. He could help anyone else that wished it. Unlike their own world, there was a lot of other people around in the same boat as him, stuck in a war against total evil and chaos. Plus the only one of them whose opinion he would really value was Phoebe and she wasn't here. The others.. well, he had been a lawyer, so he wouldn't accept much claims completely, not without some sort of evidence.
But what if she was here, and held the same tune? He wasn't prepared for that. They were still together last he remembered. But the tone and feeling he was getting so far was that it changed in a huge way. As if she had moved on after he died however they thought he did. Such a scenario was impossible in his eyes. The alternative that it was true could be overwhelming for him, and for any man. So, he had chosen to suppress his feelings on that matter, along with all the possibilities on the negative side to it. He still couldn't accept that he became The Source. And he wouldn't. Cole at this point could never imagine himself setting out to become that level of evil, no matter how much they insisted he would do so. Unless there was some other way he had yet to figure out, but so far he had none. He did think it was wrong to judge based on actions yet to come and he suspected that maybe other people would think so as well. He agreed that he wouldn't be having anything to do with either Halliwell. And if Phoebe popped up later on and said the same and.. no. He wouldn't think on that at all now. He had agreed to keep his distance from them. It was clear they wouldn't want his advice or help even if he was proved to be not-yet-evil. He probably wouldn't be inclined to offer anyway after such a cold reception.. which he could understand if they were even a little right about his future, but at least someone else was giving him a chance. Keeping distance as per the agreement would not be so difficult since his teleportation power could take him anywhere in the world. If others wanted something, he was just a shimmer away from getting to them. But first he needed to prove himself to be a good demon, not merely for Prue or Mel, but so everyone could see he isn't a threat. Good demon. Now that was probably considered a contradiction of terms to most, but it was the truth.
He had spent the majority of the couple days securing his room at the motel and keeping it secure from threats, reading through books from the library, watching TV and movies, and going over the message forums. It wasn't long before Cole had gotten a message from Ruby about meeting up. He had previously thought she would come to him, or at least arrange a public area. But it turned out to be the Winchester residence. The convo also listed the address. Cole had looked it up on Google maps, going over the directions, images of the streets, such things of that nature. It was right on the outskirts of Lawrence. He immediately sent a message back that he would be at the door in a few minutes and to look out the window for him. So, this was it. He wasn't completely certain what the discussion would involve. Probably a series of questions about himself, his intentions, maybe also about demons and the like of his world. He didn't know how his innocence here would be proved or how Ruby would arrange such a thing, or what methods would be used to know the truth. Regardless of how it would be, he would hide nothing and freely give the information. This one was giving a chance so he'd be all about full disclosure. In no way did he intend on messing this up.
So right after sending it, he did a few last minute checks. Basic stuff. Pocketing his room keys. Making sure he had his wallet containing ID and cash. Shutting off the lights, TV, and other outlets. So now looking at his new phone to see the address, he focused his intent to go there, thinking of the place.. and then his body shimmered until he completely vanished from the room. A minute or so later, his form appeared the same way he left and he found himself at the front yard, just a few paces from the porch. It was quite a large house. It looked great too. He noticed the large barn/garage structure to the side. Grass was nicely green. But the house.. that had his intention. Taking a breath, he then made his way up the steps of the porch and stood in front of the door. He gave a couple knocks and then waited for it to be opened. If it looked this nice outside, he could only imagine the interior. But as of now, he was mostly focused on their talk and proving the truth, to show that this chance would not be wasted in any way.
