There was a time when I was fickle with my loyalties. Maybe fickle isn't the right word. Careless probably works better. I was known for giving my loyalty to people who were not really all that deserving of it and it really did lead to some problems.

Take for instance, Clay.

I met him during the time I had left San Francisco and had gone to New York. He was my best friend for a time. he helped me out, he kept me safe. He soon became my boyfriend and we moved in together. It didn't work out between us... as evidenced by the fact that I am currently engaged to Cole.

Clay was a nice guy, but he was a little bit lacking in the "taking responsibility for his own actions" gene. He also lacked that nice little "don't get involved with the wrong people and bring trouble home" gene. It was that last one that made me finally call it quits with him. He just cut too many corners and I got tired of waiting for the New York Police to come to my door to tell me he'd been arrested... or worse.

After I had been back home with Prue and Piper for a few months, Clay showed up in San Francisco. Foolishly, I believed in him and was loyal to him again.

Phoebe: Don't take this the wrong way, but why are you here, with me, now?
Clay: What, can't a guy visit?
Phoebe: Yeah, but you're not just a guy, you're Clay, and Clay comes with strings attached.

Of course, I didn't know he had brought a stolen, cursed urn to get my sister to sell for him. An urn that had killed two people and endangered us... endangered me. The one thing I had sworn to Prue that he would never do, and he did.

After that? I started being a lot more careful about who besides my sisters I gave my trust to.

"If..." (Complete the sentence and write your ficlette. Your ficlette must begin with this sentence.) ... Challenge #133

If only she could remember how all of this had happened.

She did her best to swallow her fear as she was handcuffed and chained to the metal rigging. She didn't know how this had happened or why this had come to pass in this manner. She didn't understand how her future self had managed to use her power to kill someone. It was impossible! Her power wasn't active. It was passive and harmless!

Yet, here she was.

If only someone would tell her what had happened...what she had supposedly done.

There were no answers forthcoming and even the one person who knew she wasn't the right soul in the right time wasn't telling her what had occurred. He also wasn't willing to help her. Her own whitelighter thought she needed to pay for her crimes...even though they weren't really her crimes to begin with.

Leo had told her that he couldn't help her that she needed to see the punishment through. Whatever her future self had done, it had led to a modern-day witch trials and witch hunts in the country.

If she was executed for that murder, then maybe other witches would be safe again.

The senator told her that the pyre was made especially for her and that she was going to die the way a witch was supposed to die. They were going to be burning her alive. She yanked against the chains, and he smirked at her.

If only she wasn't so scared.
