My father...

You want me to write about my father.

What can I say about Victor that would be fit for public viewing? Don't get me wrong, I love my father. It's just... it's difficult to explain.

See, I used to have a very romanticized idea about my father. True, he had walked out on our family after our mom died. True we didn't hear from him again until a few months after we got our powers.

I wasn't even two when Victor walked out on us and a big part of my life's drive when I was younger was to find my dad and reunite him with me and my sisters. I never knew him and I wanted to. I had this stupid idea that if I had my dad in my life, things would be so much better all around.

Then he came back and things got even more confusing. The first time I saw him... he called me Piper. He didn't even know who I was. I guess I understood. I was a baby the last time he saw me, but the first sting was still there.

That first time he came to see us, he wanted us to stop being who we were, he didn't want us to be witches. That's when he learned that we weren't little girls any longer and that if the three of us stuck together we'd survive.

"Prue, you can't fight this. I couldn't."
"I'm not you."
"Are you sure? Are you sure you can protect your sisters forever?"
"We'll protect each other."
"Then you'll die together.
"No one can hurt us as bad as you."

He left shortly after that... of course, that leaving included standing us up... again. The last time we saw Dad was at Prue's funeral. He didn't even come to Piper's wedding

He comes in and out of our lives a lot now, kind of like a moth going from light to light. I try to keep him away from Cole. He's never liked the fact that I'm in love with a demon, and I doubt that's going to change now that Cole is back.

I know Dad is trying to change... I have to fight to remind myself of that sometimes. He loves us and we love him.

I just know now that having a dad around doesn't automatically solve all of the problems in your life, no matter how much you want them to.
