The Enterprise jumped out of warp and entered orbit around the planet. The portal reopened nearby the ship directly in front of it, bringing the vessel to a sudden halt

"Where did that come from?" Lena asked.

"I don't know, it just came out of nowhere," Triah replied.

"Use the deflector again," Lena ordered.

Triah nodded, she worked fast at her station.

The Enterprise fired a beam at the portal, a few seconds later the beam was fired back at the Enterprise.

The Bridge shook violently, most of the consoles and lights went off.

"Crap, what happened?" Lena asked.

"The portal seems to have adapted, it fired the beam right back at us," Triah said.

"Damn... it looks like they've took out nearly everything but the shields and life support," Lena muttered.

"It gets worse," Bryan stuttered.

"Really, how can it?" Lena asked.

"Look," Bryan said as he pointed at the viewscreen. Everyone saw Voyager jump out of warp, and fly beside them.

"Hail them, now," Kathryn ordered icily.

Harry nodded, he worked at the station, then he waited a few seconds. He shook his head. "I've sent a transmission, but they can't respond."

"What do you mean by they can't respond?" Chakotay asked.

"It looks like they've been in some sort of fight. They've only got minimum shields, basic life support, plus they're trapped in that portal again," Thompson said from Tactical.

The lights suddenly dimmed, the light from some of the consoles barely managed to light up the whole room.

"Same with us too," Thompson muttered.

"Claire, can we move?" Kathryn asked.

"No, that portal has pulled us into its gravity thing," Claire replied.

"If we get out of this situation, all of my kids are grounded for a month," Kathryn grumbled.

"Harry can you check how many human lifesigns are down on the planet?" Chakotay asked.

"The sensors aren't working too well, I can't tell whether the lifesigns down there are human or demon," Harry replied.

"Tell me, why do you want to know?" Kathryn asked.

"Well if there's five lifesigns, then we know the ceremony hasn't been attempted. If there's six, it's been attempted and worked. If there's four, it's been attempted and failed," Chakotay replied.

"I doubt the ceremony would've worked, there's demons down there and they probably have tried to stop the ceremony," Harry said.

"Even interrupted there's a likely chance it worked," Chakotay said cautiously.

"Er... what?" Claire said questioningly.

"It's likely? You said earlier that it would be close to impossible since he's not Native American," Harry said.

"I only said that to try and convince him not to do it. I have only heard stories of it, it has nothing to do with our people. Juna explained that this is a dark spell that feeds off power for it to work. It's not gonna defy an evil Chosen Slayer," Chakotay said.

"Harry, hurry up and fix those sensors, I need to know what's going on down there," Kathryn said.

"Ok, whatever," Harry muttered.

The planet:
Craig and Yasmin went inside the yacht, they went straight into the main room.

"Yasmin, how come the others haven't come back here?" Craig asked.

"I dunno, god," Yasmin muttered in response.

Craig started pressing some keys on the console. Yasmin heard what sounded like something heavy falling onto the floor, she turned towards the door. She glanced briefly at Craig who hadn't noticed, then she went through the door. A grin suddenly appeared on her face, and she screamed, "cool!"

Craig rushed into the main room with a phaser in his hands. "What, what is it?"

"Look at that, isn't that so cool!" Yasmin squealed as she pointed at a severely rotted corpse lying in front of her.

Craig's eyes widened in horror, "ohno."

"It must've fell out of that cupboard, it's just so cool," Yasmin said as she knelt down. Craig dragged her back onto her feet.

"Yasmin, do you know what this means?" Craig stuttered.

"Not really, do you see me caring," Yasmin replied.

"Yasmin, you stay here and try to contact the others. I have to go back," Craig said.

"Back where?" Yasmin asked.

"Yasmin, you divvy, back to the ritual site. You stay here and do as your told," Craig said and he left the room. Yasmin continued to stare at the body, Craig came back in and dragged her out with him.

The Enterprise:
Lena wandered down a pitch black corridor holding a rifle. She heard a strange noise behind her and she quickly turned around. The light on the rifle shone down the corridor, nothing was there. She turned back around, she quickly aimed her rifle in front of her.

The Bridge:
"They're everywhere, they have a lot more recruits than last time," Naomi said.

"How many are there?" Triah asked.

"Hundreds, and more are coming," Naomi replied.

"How are we going to stop them this time when we have barely any power?" Bryan asked.

The sound of the turbolift doors opening caught everyone's attention, and they all turned to look. "You can't stop us this time, this ship is ours," a demon said from the turbolift. Others with rifles came out from behind him.

The planet:
Tom was walking backwards and forwards, glancing around. Sasha was kneeling beside James, who was still unconscious.

"I wonder if the demons are gone, we haven't seen any since we got here," Tom said and he stopped walking

"I doubt it, they know dad's evil now.. they'll probably want him. Like Duncan was in my timeline he'll be easily brainwashed," Sasha said.

"Duncan turned evil just like him? What happened?" Tom asked.

"Yeah you don't want to know," Sasha replied.

"Fine. We'll be safer in the yacht, maybe we should head back," Tom said.

James woke up, he slowly rose to a sitting position. "What happened?"

"The demons decided that they wanted to trash the party," Tom muttered in response.

"Because of the interference, it didn't work," Sasha said.

"We can do it again, can't we?" James asked.

"No, we can't. Once it's been attempted, you can't attempt it again," Sasha replied.

"Uhoh, trouble's coming," Tom muttered.

Sasha and James turned to look where Tom was looking. About six demons were coming towards them. Sasha stood up. James tried to, but he stumbled. Tom glanced at Sasha.

"We're in trouble, our Slayer can't even get up never mind fight," Tom said.

"You're forgetting, I'm a Slayer too," Sasha said. She went forward, Tom sighed and he followed her.

Sasha raised her hands, the demons froze but two of them quickly unfroze and jumped onto the pair. Tom punched the demon with both hands clasped together, then he pushed it off him. Sasha pushed the demon, she got back onto her feet and kicked it a few metres away.

"How did they do that?" Tom asked just before the demon jumped on him again.

"Unfortunately I'm still practising my freezing spells," Sasha replied. She went to kick a different attacker but it grabbed her leg, dragging her to the ground.

The other demons unfroze and they all went over to James. He just managed to kick one of them away. The others dragged him onto his feet. He punched one of them, but the other two held his arms back as they dragged him away. The other two followed slowly.

The other two demons stopped fighting Tom and Sasha suddenly, they then went in the same direction as the others. Sasha and Tom climbed onto their feet, looking confused.

"Ok, that was sure strange," Tom muttered.

"Ohno, where's my dad?" Sasha asked frantically.

"I take my comment back," Tom said.

"Come on, if we follow those two demons they may lead us to him," Sasha said, she ran after the demons. Tom shrugged and he quickly followed her.

Craig reached the clearing, he then ran over to what looked like bodies on the ground. The portals had closed, but there were lots of dead demons littering the ground. Craig rushed over to the torpedo casing. He noticed the hole in the casing, then he glanced around and saw all the bits of metal scattered around.

In: "Yasmin to Craig."

Craig tapped his commbadge. "Yasmin, I told you to contact the others, not me."

In: "Yeah well smarty pants, I can't contact the others. They're too far away to receive the signal thingy, I could only reach you."

"Relay the signal to them using the signal you're using now," Craig said.

In: "You what? Why can't you contact them from where you are?"

"Because my commbadge won't be able to do it on its own, do as I told ya," Craig replied.

In: "Fine."

"After you do that I want you to meet me at the clearing, Craig out," Craig said.

Meanwhile in the woods:
Tom managed to catch up with Sasha, he grabbed a hold of her arm to stop her.

"What are you doing, Tom?" Sasha asked angrily.

"Sasha we've been running for ages, for all you know those demons went another direction to us," Tom replied.

"We can't just give up," Sasha said.

"I know, we'll just have to keep an eye out for portals, or other demons. Running non stop isn't going to get us anywhere except lost," Tom said.

"Fine, I guess," Sasha said.

"Why don't we head towards the mountains," Tom suggested.

"Why?" Sasha asked.

"Just a suggestion," Tom replied. He started walking ahead of Sasha. She sighed, she followed him.

In: "Yasmin to Tom."

Tom tapped his commbadge. "Yasmin? Where are you?"

In: "In that yacht thingy. Craig told me to contact you, but I have no idea why."

Tom stopped and glanced backwards at Sasha. "Erm, ok. Where is Craig?"

In: "He went back to that clearing where the dead body was."

"Didn't he say why?" Sasha asked.

In: "Not really... he freaked out when he saw a dead body in the yacht."

Tom's eyes widened, "oh god."

In: "Not you too, geeze."

"Was it in the back room?" Sasha asked.

In: "Yeah it was."

"Dead and decomposed?" Tom stuttered.

In: "Yeah, it was so cool. What is everyone's problem?"

"Yasmin, that's Unu. She was the sacrifice. If she's decomposed then it could only mean that the ritual worked," Tom said.

In: "And?"

"And, that means that the dead body you mentioned first is not dead anymore. It's alive and not decomposed," Tom said slowly.

In: "Oh, now I get it... cool!"

Tom rolled his eyes, he tapped his commbadge. "Great, James has been kidnapped and Jessie's somewhere, well I don't know."

"That witch said she will be evil if she was ever revived," Sasha muttered.

"According to legend, Sash. We'd better get back to the coffin just in case," Tom said.

"If she's an all powerful witch like that other witch mentioned, then she can get out of there, plus Craig's there isn't he. We need to save dad," Sasha said.

"Right, heading towards the mountains?" Tom said questioningly, he continued walking. Sasha followed him.

Kathryn went over to where Harry was carefully. "Harry, are you getting anywhere?"

"If I was I'd tell you," Harry grumbled from underneath the opps station.

"Harry, don't use that attitude with me," Kathryn growled.

Harry rolled his eyes and continued working.

"I don't understand, why are the demons just concentrating on the Enterprise?" Claire asked.

"Because they think Duncan and the younger Sasha are there," Kathryn replied.

"Oh, but they are aren't they?" Claire asked.

"Not anymore, before Lena decided to attack Voyager and everything, Doctor Jones brought the younger Sasha to our Sickbay, plus we beamed Duncan over," Kathryn replied.

"Well those demons are either dumb, or ... er or," Claire muttered.

"Dumb?" Thompson said, he was beside Harry at opps.

"Yeah, dumb," Claire said.

"Thompson, how are the sensors?" Chakotay asked.

"I'm still working on it. Just gimme a few seconds," Thompson replied.

"It doesn't really matter anyway. Even if the ritual worked we can't get Jessie up here to perform that banishing spell with Juna and.... the other one because we have no transporters," Kathryn said. Chakotay rolled his eyes.

"Yeah but it would be a step in the right direction, right?" Claire said questioningly.

"You never know the witch might have the ability to transport like that Unu girl," Thompson said.

"Yeah, but she wouldn't know about it unless someone told her, will she," Kathryn said.

"True I guess. Now I can tell if we have a new witch or not," Thompson said. He pressed a few buttons, he waited a few seconds while Kathryn, Chakotay and Claire watched. "Ok, there are over twenty demons, two unidentified aliens, and six humans.. yep we have our witch," Thompson said.

"Trouble is, like the Captain said, we can't get her," Chakotay said.

"Harry, keep working," Kathryn ordered.

"I am, I am, quit bugging me," Harry grumbled.

"I told you to stop using that attitude with me," Kathryn growled.

"I don't give a crap, I bet they'll even bring back Tuvok after this... what about Emma?" Harry grumbled.

Kathryn tried to keep her cool. Chakotay went over to opps. "Calm down, Harry. If you don't continue with this work, then there's no chance of it happening."

"Fine," Harry muttered.

"Yeah, don't turn evil on us," Thompson sniggered. Everyone glared at him, he cowered and continued what he was doing.

The planet:
Sasha and Tom finally emerged from the woods, they found themselves outside several cave openings.

"Thought so, these could be good hiding places," Tom said.

"So are the portals," Sasha said.

"We may as well have a look inside at least one, it beats wandering around the woods again," Tom said. He headed inside one of the caves, Sasha followed him looking rather uneasy. They quickly reached a junction, they went down the right tunnel. It wasn't long before they hit a dead end.

"Oh well this was a good idea," Sasha said sarcastically, she folded her arms.

Tom didn't hear her, he walked passed Sasha slowly. "Did you hear that?"

"Hear what?" Sasha asked.

"Footsteps," Tom muttered. He turned back towards the dead end.

"I didn't hear anything," Sasha said.

"Shhh," Tom whispered. This time they both heard the sound of someone coming towards them.

"I hear it, it's behind us isn't it," Sasha said.

Tom nodded slowly, he turned around even slower. He jumped a mile. "Sasha!" he yelled. Sasha turned around quickly, she saw someone running down the other tunnel at the junction.

"What was that?" Sasha asked. She didn't get a response, Tom was already following the person. "Er, hello?"

Tom stopped and he turned to Sasha. "I don't know, whatever it was ran away before I got a chance to look."

Tom turned back around and he went down the other tunnel. Sasha quickly followed him. They quickly reached another dead end. They both saw a girl facing the wall.

"Oh god, it's not.." Tom muttered.

The girl looked over shoulder, her eyes were full of black but she still looked frightened.

"Jessie? It's me, Tom," Tom said. Sasha glanced at him in shock. Tom ignored her and he slowly went towards Jessie. She quickly pushed her left hand out. Something that he couldn't even see stopped him in his tracks.

"Invisible Barrier," Sasha said quietly. Tom sighed.

Sasha heard more footsteps coming from behind her. She turned around quickly, she saw a couple of demons in front of her. One of them grabbed a hold of Sasha's arm. "Hmm, this one's a cutie. Can I keep her?"

Sasha pulled her arm out of the demons grip, she pushed him into the wall. "Keep your hands off, pervert."

Tom turned around, he then spotted the demons. "Oh crap."

All of the demons headed over to them. Sasha pushed one of them away, but he quickly hit her in the face. He pushed her into the wall, he then put his hand around her neck. The others went over to Tom. Two of them pushed him hard into the wall, he fell onto the ground. One of them went up closer to Jessie, she still had her left hand out but the demon seemed to go through the barrier.

"So this is the one, is it?" the demon said.

"Yeah, that's her," another demon sniggered.

The main demon went closer to Jessie, she backed against the wall. "God look at her, so small and weak looking. The mighty witch we came here to stop is so scared she's trembling." The other demons laughed. "If we'd have known earlier, we wouldn't of bothered to hurt the Slayer to stop the ritual."

"What should we do with the other two boss?" one demon asked.

The main demon turned around to face the others, "I don't know, I don't really care what you do with them. Kill them if you want to." He turned back around, he was immediately kicked in the stomach, and then punched hard in the face. He fell onto the ground.

"Finally, I think she's back," Tom said whilst trying to get up.

The demon holding Sasha squeaked painfully or even fearfully, he let her go in order to retreat, with a limp. Sasha couldn't keep her balance and breathe easy, she had to lean against the wall for support. Tom rushed over to her. As he did Jessie managed to block the other demons from coming near her with the barrier.

"What's she doing?" Sasha managed to say.

Tom glanced back at Jessie. What looked like purple sparks were coming from her right hand, she then pointed her hand towards the demons and a purple lightning strike was fired towards them. They all collapsed onto the ground with burns on their skin.

"I think we won," Tom muttered.

As soon as Jessie put her right hand back by her side, she glanced at all the demons. She then ran passed Tom and Sasha, and ran out of the cave. Sasha and Tom glanced at each other briefly, then they followed her. When they reached the outside of the cave there was no sign of Jessie anywhere.

"S*** we lost her," Tom muttered.

"We have to find her, that witch was right wasn't she?" Sasha said.

"Hell yeah, Jess couldn't do anything like that before she died," Tom said.

"It was strange, she didn't seem evil when we first saw her, and after she killed those demons. She seemed more scared than anything else," Sasha said.

"Yeah, I noticed that. That's not important now though, we have to find her," Tom muttered. Sasha nodded, and they both went back into the woods.

In one of the caves:
Two men came around the corner and bumped into a couple of demons. All of the demons nodded their heads at them.

"Xillian, Janan, you honour us with this meeting," one of the demons said.

"Yes, I wish I could say the same," the taller man muttered. He pushed passed the the demons, the other one followed.

The shorter one turned towards the demon that spoke. "What have you got to show Xillian?"

"We have a Slayer to show him," the demon said.

Xillian stopped and he turned around. "A Slayer, yes well.. that's not what I want. I want those kids, I can raise them into evil fighting machines. Older Slayers are useless to me."

"You don't understand, Xillian. This is not any old Slayer," the demon said.

"Then what is it then?" Janan asked.

The demon tried to hide his smile. "The Chosen Slayer, the evil one."

Xillian pushed Janan out of the way and stood in front of the demon. "Does that mean you could still brainwash him?"

"Yes sir, as simple as a child," the demon said.

"I like this, this is good news. I can take this back to the boss, he will be happy," Xillian said, he continued walking in front of the demon and Janan.

"Has he already captured the children?" the demon asked.

"It is not your place to ask," Janan said.

Xillian smiled, he turned around again. "My dear Janan, don't be like that. Both of the Slayer's brats are still to be found, and believe me they will be."

Another demon ran up to the group. "Sir, he's woken up."

"And?" the main demon asked.

"I just thought you'd want to know," the demon stuttered.

"It won't make any difference, not even he can get out of magical restraints. Get back there now," the main demon said.

The demon nodded and he ran back the way he came. Janan, Xillian and the main demon followed him at a normal pace.

"You must warn your leader that we were unsuccessful in stopping the ceremony," the demon said.

Both Xillian and Janan stopped. They both turned to him. "You mean there's an all powerful witch on the loose? Do you realise that as soon as she finds out about our plans with her and the Slayer's brats she'll not make things easy for us," Janan said.

"Yes sir, I have teams searching for her. They'll kill her if they find her," the demon said.

Janan and Xillian continued walking. "For your sake, I hope so," Xillian said. The three reached the dead end, the tunnel had widened so that the dead end was like a small room. There was six other demons in the room. All hanging round a stone slab. James was lying on it, tied to it with strange glowing chains.

Xillian, Janan and the demon went up to the slab. "I take it he was the one who tried to bring the witch back," Xillian said.

"Yes, that's right. By trying it made it easier to capture him," the main demon said.

Janan stood over James. "Tut tut, you've been a bad boy."

Xillian smiled, "now Janan, there's plenty time later for that."

"When is the leader expecting you back?" the main demon asked.

"As soon as we're finished here. Sedate him, we'll take him to him now," Xillian replied.

The main demon nodded at one of the other demons. He came over and injected James with a small needle. He lost consciousness.

"Now you lot help Xillian and Janan take him out," the main demon ordered. The others weren't listening, they were all staring at something far in front of them.

"Sir.... we got company," one stuttered.

Xillian, Janan and the main demon turned around. Jessie was standing at the entrance. "You fools, get rid of her," Xillian ordered. The purple sparks came from her hand again, purple lightning strikes came out of both of her hands, they struck the six demons. They fell to the ground with burns all over them.

"Don't worry, sir. I'll take care of her myself," the main demon said. He ran over to where Jessie was, he pushed her into the wall by surprise. He pushed his right arm against her neck and held her there.

Xillian turned to Janan. "Get a portal open, we may as well take the Slayer while the witch is distracted."

"Yes sir," Janan said, he pulled out a remote. He pressed a button on it. A portal started to open nearby.

Jessie kneed the demon where it hurts, he loosened his grip then she punched him hard in the face. He fell to the ground. She then glanced at Xillian and Janan, they noticed.

"Just go," Xillian ordered as he rushed into the portal. Janan stopped un-tieing one of James' hands and ran in after Xillian. The portal closed.

Jessie looked around at all the dead demons, she tried not to look at them as she went towards the stone slab. She knelt down beside it, gently placed her right hand on the side of James' face. She moved it away, and started un-tieing his hands. The only alive demon groaned from the ground, he was unconscious. She stood up and left the cave.

Yasmin was kneeling beside one of the dead demons, fiddling with its arm. Craig was trying not to look at her, or anything, with a grimace on his face. Sasha and Tom ran over to him.

"Er, Tom... where's James?" Craig asked nervously.

"The demons have him. We'd have better luck finding him if we all look," Tom replied.

"What about Jess, have you seen her yet?" Craig asked.

Sasha and Tom glanced nervously at each other. "Oh yeah, and Juna was right."

"So she's evil, oh crap," Craig muttered.

"Not fully evil," Sasha said quietly. Tom and Craig glanced at her confused. "She was terrified of us and those demons that attacked, somebody fully evil wouldn't be afraid of anything. She just suddenly started to attack the demons when they.. er actually I don't know.."

"The lead demon mentioned that they hurt James when they interrupted the ritual. That was when she just suddenly lost it," Tom said.

Sasha nodded. "After she did it she seemed guilty, and she ran. I'm guessing that Juna was right about her not being able to control the part of her that can control all her powers. But she's definitely not right about the evil part."

"So in other words she's the witch version of James now," Craig said.

"Not exactly, she doesn't seem suicidal," Tom said.

Sasha looked confused, "suicidal?"

"Forget I said that," Tom muttered.

"So we got to find both of them, that sounds fun," Craig said sarcastically.

"Problem is James doesn't know the ritual even worked, we're going to have to find her before he does," Tom said.

"Why?" Yasmin asked as she raised a dead demons arm and let it drop.

"God knows what'll happen if he finds her first, he became evil cos she died right," Tom replied.

"I doubt he'll suddenly turn goody goody if he finds her," Craig muttered.

"I know, he never was to start with. It's just we have no idea what'll happen, I think it would be easier if we tell him she's alive rather than him find out on his own that she is," Tom said.

"He has a point," Sasha said.

"Ok fine, let's go," Craig said.

"Aw, do we have to... I want to play," Yasmin moaned.

"Yes we have to," Craig said as he pulled her to her feet.

"Oh, no fair," Yasmin muttered.

In the cave:
James woke up to the sound of the only alive demon crying. He slowly sat up, he looked to the side. The demon was lying on the ground with his back to him. He then climbed off the slab. He made his way out while trying not to look at all the fried demons.

"Oh the pain, the pain," the demon cried.

James rolled his eyes before leaving the demon to cry on his own. After a long walk through the tunnels, James finally got out of the cave. He looked around, there was no one in sight. He then headed towards the woods, he stopped suddenly. He turned his head and he saw somebody at the edge of a mountain ledge. He glanced towards the woods, then back at the mountain. He started his climb.

A good way up, he reached a straigh almost path like ledge. He went along it and up towards the top. Not far in front of him was the ledge, his pace slowed considerably when he got closer to the girl on the ledge. The girl glanced behind her, she quickly glanced back in front of her.

"Jess, is that... is that really you?" James stuttered in disbelief.

Jessie glanced back briefly again, she stepped forward slowly.

"Please say something," James said.

"Why did you bring me back?" Jessie asked quietly.

James went a little closer to her, "I had to."

"Why?" Jessie whispered without even looking at him.

"Because I need you, and.." James replied.

"Did you even think for one second that I might've been happier where I was?" Jessie said.

"Were you?" James asked.

"No, but that's not the point. I feel like I've just woke up from a nightmare with a hangover," Jessie said quietly. She glanced around, then she looked down from the ledge. It was a good thirty feet drop. "And that's the cure."

"What are you talking about?" James stuttered fearfully.

"Do you have any idea what it feels like to wake up in a cramped space, with no way out? Do you?" Jessie sighed.

"No... no, I'm really sorry, I didn't even know the ritual had worked. If I'd have known I'd have... you wouldn't..." James said.

"You would've got me out of there, I know. It wouldn't make a difference," Jessie said. She then glanced at James, immediately a frown formed. "What happened to your eyes?"

James glanced away, he pulled some glasses out of his pocket and he put them on. "You don't really want to go there."

"There I was thinking that you had no idea what I was going through. When I tried to get my way out of that coffin it felt like I lost control of myself. The next thing I knew I was standing next to the damn thing staring down at a group of dead bodies," Jessie said as she looked back at the drop before her.

"I killed and I felt good about it," James mumbled. Jessie glanced back at him with widening eyes. "It felt like I was being possessed, but at the same time it was still me."

"You don't need to explain it to me, I know. Right now I feel like there's a bomb ready to go off, and eventually I'm going to hurt someone I care about, maybe even kill them. I can't let that happen," Jessie said, she started to walk further forward. James went up to her quickly and grabbed her arm.

"What are you doing?" James stammered.

"What does it look like," Jessie said plainly in response. She looked down again.

"Believe me that's not the way out at all," James stuttered.

"It is, I was dead before, it isn't going to make any difference," Jessie said.

"But.. I need you, Duncan needs you, the crew need you.." James said pleadingly.

"The crew need me? James please, this isn't the time to joke," Jessie groaned.

"Isn't Duncan needing you enough?" James said, instantly regretting it and wincing.

Jessie glanced back at him. "I only told you this once, but.. I love you. So this is for the best."

"If you love me you won't do this," James said with a frog in his throat.

"I'm sorry but I can't live like this. I don't want to live in fear that I may hurt or even kill someone I care about, especially you," Jessie said, she looked down again.

"We both are in similar situations, we could work together to defeat this. There is no point in letting it win like this," James said.

"I don't want to hurt you, at least if I do this that'll never happen," Jessie said.

"I'd rather have you turn evil and try to chop me up with a knife than you jump to your death, it wouldn't feel half as bad. I will continue to fight this evil inside me if you are there with me, we can help each other through this, I know," James said.

"But.. there's no way we can win," Jessie mumbled on the verge of tears.

James shook his head defiantly, "there is. We can do anything, we're a team. I promise it'll be work."

"You can't promise anything," Jessie said.

"I can and I did," James said, he held out his hand. Jessie slowly took a hold of it.

Tom, Craig, Sasha and Yasmin emerged from the woods. They all looked around.

"Where do we go now?" Craig asked.

"I don't know, there's so many caves," Sasha muttered in response.

Tom looked around, he spotted the ledge where James and Jessie were.

"Hey, guys! I found them!" he yelled. Sasha, Craig and Yasmin quickly turned to him.

"What both of them, where?" Craig asked.

Tom pointed towards the ledge. Everyone glanced that way. "So much for us finding him first."

"Doesn't matter," Sasha said and she walked towards the mountain side.

"It's made it easier to find them hasn't it, but how on earth do you get up there?" Craig asked.

Sasha spotted a steep path leading up the mountain, she started to go up it. Tom glanced at Craig. "Does that answer your question?"

Tom, Craig and Yasmin followed Sasha up the path.

Meanwhile, again:
James and Jessie were heading away from the ledge, still holding hands.

Jessie stopped, James did as well. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to scare you. I was too busy being scared myself to know what I was doing."

"Why does that sound familiar?" James said.

"So er, did I miss anything when I was gone?" Jessie asked nervously. James pulled her to him, he wrapped his arms around her. She put her arms around him too, a soft smile appeared on her face. "That much, huh." As they hugged each other the blackness from Jessie's eyes faded away, and turned back to their normal colour.

Meanwhile Tom, Craig, Sasha and Yasmin were going along the side mountain path. Tom, Craig and Sasha heard Yasmin briefly scream. They all turned around quickly, a group of demons were coming their way, one had grabbed a hold of Yasmin. The demons carefully went passed Yasmin and went over to the other three. Sasha was about to hit one when Tom grabbed her arm to stop her.

"Don't start a fight here, one false move could mean someone falling down twenty odd feet," Tom said.

"Damn it," Sasha muttered as two demons took a tight hold of her.

"Open a portal, take them to the ship. The rest of us will get the others," one of the demons ordered.

The demon who had a hold of Yasmin got a remote out, he pressed a button on it. A portal opened behind him. He pulled Yasmin into it, the others who had a hold of Tom, Craig and Sasha followed. The rest of the demons continued along the path.

They eventually got to the ledge. Four of the five demons went over to James and Jessie, and pulled them away from each other. The last remaining demon went up to them all.

"Enough of this mushy crap, let's reunite you with someone you least expect," the demon said. He started laughing, the others joined in with him. The lead demon got out another remote, he quickly pressed a button. A portal appeared, they all went through it.

The Bridge shook violently. Then the lights suddenly came back on, so did the consoles. Kathryn turned to Harry.

"Good work Harry," Kathryn said.

"I didn't do anything, I was still working on fixing the problem," Harry said.

"Yeah he's right. The Enterprise sent us power using their deflector," Thompson said.

"Good, beam up the crewmembers who are on the planet, and.." Kathryn said.

"Can't, all the human lifesigns are gone. We're being hailed by the Enterprise," Thompson said.

"On screen," Kathryn ordered.

The viewscreen changed to show the Enterprise Bridge. Nobody could see anyone there. Then someone very familiar stepped into view.

Kathryn narrowed her eyes, "Damien.. I should have known." The camera tried its zoom in as usual, but Kathryn pushed it away without even looking at it.

"Yes you should have. How do you like my little present?" Damien said, he laughed evilly. Xillian and Janan walked over to stand at both sides of him.

"What present?" Chakotay asked.

"My, the present.. you know bringing you all back to the Delta Quadrant. Oh darn, I knew it wasn't going to be good enough. I'm so glad I gave you my second present which was kind of screwed up by a certain someone I keep nameless," Damien said.

"Second present? You really shouldn't have bothered," Kathryn said.

"Yes, you're right. Sending Unu to do all the dirty work in the beginning was a bit nasty, but it paid off," Damien said. Janan and Xillian laughed.

"Sending Unu?" Claire said questioningly.

"That's right, it was such a clever plan that you had no idea, even though it was ruined it still paid off," Damien said.

"What are you talking about?" Kathryn asked angrily.

Damien, Xillian and Janan all burst out laughing. "You still have no idea. Do you want me to tell you? Of course you do." He turned to Janan.

"You see, Unu was sent to posses a member of your crew by us. She wanted to get her own body so badly so we thought we'd let her do it," Janan said.

"You sent her to kill Jessie, what on earth for?" Chakotay asked angrily

"Well for one thing, to get rid of a witch but the main reason was to get this," Damien said and he clicked his fingers. Janan went over to the Conference Room, he came straight back out. He was followed by a demon with a tight hold of Yasmin.

"Let go of me, this is so unfair," Yasmin moaned.

"I don't get it, what has she got to do with this?" Kathryn asked angrily

"Well you see, you remember over a year ago when I took the Slayer. Well it was the perfect time to take DNA from him, fiddle around with it, and make this. Pretty nice huh," Damien replied, he smiled evilly.

"Eeew.. er that is gross right?" Yasmin asked.

"So you took James's DNA to make Yasmin..." Chakotay said.

"But why? And what has this got to do with Unu and Jessie?" Kathryn asked.

"We knew that if the witch was murdered in a way that she couldn't be brought back, that the Slayer would turn evil. Then all we'd have to do is get another sample of DNA, capture the difference, and adjust Yasmin's DNA some more," Xillian replied.

"To make her evil," Kathryn muttered.

"That's impossible. For one thing getting DNA off James when he's evil wouldn't change Yasmin, secondly there is no way you could've gotten a hold of DNA while he was evil," Chakotay said.

"He's got a point," Kathryn said.

"If you say so..." Damien said. He turned to somebody offscreen, he beckoned them over with his finger. Denara came into view.

"Denara?" Kathryn said questioningly.

"What? Do you really think that I was a real psychiatrist? Wow, you're dumber than you look," Denara said.

"That's it, I officially have a headache," Claire muttered.

"I can cure that. All I had to do was provoke the Slayer and I'd get a sample of DNA for sure. There is a special gene inside a Slayer that does control the evil. When they're far gone it degenerates, weakens. This way I knew which one to tweak," Denara said.

"What I want to know is why?" Kathryn asked.

"What? You want to know why we dumped Yasmin on New Earth and gave you and her false memories?" Damien replied sarcastically.

"Spill it Damien," Chakotay said.

"Well the original plan was that Yasmin would be evil enough to turn against you. Thus helping us capture the next generation of Chosen Slayers, and raising them to help me take over the universe. But fortunately for me I didn't need her after all. Trying to bring the witch back gave me an advantage. So now instead of having two Chosen Slayers, I have three... and there's still two more to go," Damien said. He and everyone started laughing evily.. including Yasmin. She stopped looking confused.

"What was the joke?" Yasmin asked.

"I see she's just as dumb as her so called brother," Jalan said.

"I don't understand, Damien. If you wanted Slayers why didn't you just make simple clones of James when you captured him a year ago?" Kathryn asked.

Damien stopped laughing. "Yeah why didn't I do that?

Yasmin started laughing again. "You dumba**."

"Er I mean, I had thought of that earlier but I didn't have the time. Switch that damn viewscreen off..." Damien turned to Xillian. "So er, we can still do that now right?"

"No sir remember, the original would have to die for that to work," Xillian said.

"How do you know that?" Damien asked.

"Well there can only be two," Xillian replied.

"But what about the girl?" Damien asked.

"She doesn't count, she is the next generation's Chosen Slayer," Xillian replied.

"Damn it," Damien muttered.

"Er... how do you switch the viewscreen off?" a demon asked.

Damien, Xillian and Janan all glanced at the viewscreen. The Voyager Bridge crew were still watching them.

"I'll kill you, you son of a..." Damien said as he went towards the demon. The viewscreen went off.

"I switched it off," Harry muttered.

"Thompson, get to Tactical," Kathryn ordered.

"Er... Captain the Enterprise is firing another beam from its deflector.." Thompson muttered. The Bridge shook violently again. The lights and consoles went back off. "They drained our power."

"Well I never would've guessed that on my own," Harry muttered.

"They must have just sent us power just so we could talk to Damien," Kathryn said.

"What do we do?" Chakotay asked.

"There's nothing we can do from over here, for now," Kathryn replied.

The Enterprise, one of the Brigs:
Kiara and Lena were sitting down next to each other, Nikki was standing by the wall. Only one demon was standing guard. The doors opened, more demons came in dragging James, Jessie, Craig, Tom, Sasha and Yasmin in with them. The original demon lowered the forcefield, the demons pushed the prisoners where Lena was and the forcefield went back up. All but one of the demons walked back out.

Lena glanced around at the newcomers. "I take it the mission went well."

"If you say so," Tom muttered.

"Well at least Jess isn't evil like Juna said, that's something to be thankful for," Lena said.

"But... I am," Jessie muttered.

"You could've fooled me, you look normal to me plus if you were evil I'd sense it," Lena said as she stood up.

Everyone glanced at Jessie. "Well I felt evil before, so I must be still."

"The black has gone from your eyes," James said.

"Really, wow," Jessie said.

"Okay, now that's strange," Sasha said.

"No it isn't, James take off the sunglasses," Lena said.

"Why?" James asked.

"Oh I love this bit, it's so cool," Yasmin said. Jessie glanced at her with a confused look on her face. "What, it is."

James took off the sunglasses, everyone but Yasmin and Lena looked shocked.

"Damn it, no fair..." Yasmin muttered.

"What?" James said in a confused tone of voice.

"Just as I sensed, the blackness has gone," Lena said.

"But how's that possible?" Craig asked.

"Well it's obvious, they both must've lost the blackness in their eyes when they reunited," Tom replied.

"Ugh, I wish I was evil like he said.. I'd show you two how it's done," Yasmin said.

"Don't you think we should be thinking of a way out of here?" Craig asked.

"No I don't, I already have a plan," Jessie replied.

"If it involves killing I'll help," Yasmin said.

"Actually it does," Jessie said.

"Yey, this is more like it!" Yasmin laughed.

"Someone tell me, who is this girl?" Jessie asked.

"Er..." Tom muttered, he glanced at Lena and then James. "Janeway's daughter, long story."

"Erm, how come she's the opposite of Lena then?" Jessie asked.

"Because we don't have the same dad, that's why. Now what's the plan?" Lena replied.

The Bridge:
"I showed that son of a b**ch how to work that station didn't I," Damien laughed.

Xillian and Janan pretended to laugh. "Er, yes sir."

"Now that I've finally got something to celebrate about I think I'll put some music on, and eat in style," Damien said. He went over to the Captain's chair, he started fiddling with the side console.

Janan and Xillian glanced at each other in horror. "Music, ohno not again." Xillian muttered.

The new Hear'Say song Lovin' Is Easy started playing, Damien started dancing to it.

"We really have to kill him," Janan muttered.

"We can't though, we'll only kill his current host. He'll probably choose one of us as a host," Xillian said.

Things got worse as Damien started to sing the chorus of the song.

"It could be worse, his host could be Enrique or Ronan Keaton," Janan said.

"That's not worse, but it's still bad," Xillian said.

"I've got a brilliant idea!" Damien yelled suddenly.

Xillian and Janan jumped out of their skins. "Er, you do sir?" Janan said questioningly.

"Since that witch is alive now, I can use this to my advantage..." Damien said.

"Ohno, I see where this is going," Xillian muttered. Janan nodded.

"I will make the witch my bride," Damien sneered.

"But I thought you hated her," Xillian said.

"I do, but I can brainwash her so she'll be likeable," Damien said.

"That might be handy to know for later," Xillian said.

"What did you say?" Damien asked.

"Nothing sir," Janan replied.

"I think, sir, that you are a bit high on yogurt again. At least wait until you've sobered up, you may change your mind then," Xillian said.

"Yes you're right, I mean she's no use to us now right," Damien said.

In: "Uhinini to Damien."

"Uhinini? What a stupid name," Damien laughed.

In: "Aaaw, that wasn't nice sir..."

"I made another demon cry. I'm getting good at this," Damien said.

"Er, Uhinini what have you contacted us for?" Xillian asked.

In: "Er... sniff.. the witch wants to speak to you. She says that she wants to join you."

"Really! Er I mean, excellent.. I'm on my way," Damien said. The transmission cut off. "She must want to be my bride, she's very smart."

"Er, yes sir," Janan muttered. He glanced at Xillian, he just rolled his eyes.

Damien headed into the turbolift. As soon as he did Janan rushed over to the Captains chair and fiddled with the console.

"Hurry up, get that so called music off," Xillian said frantically.

The thing that Hear'Say call music switched off at long last. Everyone on the Bridge sighed in relief.

"He's getting worse," Xillian said.

"Yes he is, he can't even tell that the witch turning to our side is too suspicious to be true," Janan said.

"Yes. Let's put some real music on," Xillian said. Janan nodded, he pressed some buttons on the console. Liberty X started playing instead. "Ah yes... this is more like it. Sexy, everything about you so sexy. Come on baby.."

Everyone but Janan and Xillian looked scared stiff as both of them continued to sing.

"Oh god in hell help us," one demon muttered.

The Brig:
"Are you sure this plan's a good idea? I'm not even sure if what I did worked," Kiara whispered.

"What did you do?" James asked. Everyone tried to avoid answering the question by pretending not to hear him.

"Yes it is, but it's dangerous," Jessie whispered.

"Dangerous enough for me," Yasmin giggled quietly.

"This isn't a good idea, are you sure we'll be safe in all this?" Tom asked.

"Do I look sure?" Jessie asked.

"No," Tom replied.

"Great, I feel a lot better now," Craig said quietly.

"Was it just me or did Damien seem happy about the news?" James asked quietly.

"It wasn't just you," Sasha replied.

Damien walked in looking a little too happy. He stood in front of the forcefield. "Let her out," he told Uhinini. Uhinini sniffed as he pressed a few buttons on the console. The forcefield lowered, Jessie stepped out.. the others tried to get out too but the forcefield went back up.

"Ah Jessie, long time no see," Damien said.

"Whatever, erm why did you come alone?" Jessie asked.

"To be honest I don't know. It doesn't matter though, how would you like to be my bride?" Damien asked. Tom, Craig, Yasmin and Kiara tried to keep straight faces.

Jessie pretended to think about it, she then kicked Damien in the leg and she punched him in the face. He fell onto the ground. "Sorry, I'm already engaged."

Uhinini quickly pulled a phaser out, he shot Jessie. She fell onto the ground near Damien.

"Ok Kiara it better have worked," Lena muttered as she kept an eye on James.

"It's working, I think," Tom said nervously. As soon as he said that James went straight through the forcefield. Uhinini's eyes widened in horror, he was about to fire the phaser at him.

Kiara glanced at Lena, she clicked her fingers a couple of times. The phaser turned to dust in Uhinini's hands. James got a hold of him and threw him into the wall, knocking him unconscious. He then went behind the console and keyed in some commands. The forcefield dropped.

"Ok Jess you can stop now," Lena said.

"What?" James said in a confused tone of voice.

Jessie sat up a little groggily, she pulled herself to her feet. Everyone but her and James tried to keep a straight face.

"Ok, someone explain," James said.

Kiara eyed Lena guiltily. She gave her a nod in return, "she changed the phaser setting to barely stun," Lena said, clicking her fingers for emphasis.

"I feel a bit used now," James muttered.

"Wait, that's why you..." Jessie said a little dangerously.

Lena went over to him and patted James on the arm. "It's ok, you can calm down." She briefly glanced at Jessie, "it's cool."

"I don't get it though, how did he get through the forcefield?" Jessie asked.

"Simple, Evil Slayers just unearth future abilities. James gets mad enough he can walk through forcefields, maybe he'll figure out how to do it later without the getting mad part," Lena replied.

"Enough talk more demon killing," Yasmin said and she ran out of the room. Everyone else followed. James and Jessie stopped at the door.

"Sorry, my plan was simpler," Jessie said.

"I'll let you off this once," James said.

Jessie glanced at Damien who was regaining consciousness. She went over to the console, she picked up another phaser and she went over to stand beside James. She aimed the phaser at Damien. He looked up at her.

"Oh Damien, this is for proposing and your actor being engaged to my actress," Jessie said.

"Oh great, not again," Damien muttered as Jessie fired the phaser at him. He collapsed.

"Let's go," Jessie said and she left the room. James followed her.

The Bridge, 10 minutes later:
Xillian and Janan were still singing to Liberty X, this time they were singing their new single. The other demons felt like killing themselves. Suddenly Xillian collapsed. Janan knelt beside him.

"Sir, are you alright?" Janan asked.

Xillian woke up suddenly, he cringed. "I would be alright if you'd turn that traitorous music off."

"But sir, you like this music," Janan said.

Xillian got onto his feet. "Don't be stupid, Janan. Now the witch lied to me, and killed me, so I want her dead."

"But... ohno.. Damien?" Janan said questioningly.

"Yes, that's right. Now that witch tricked me, the ones in the brig escaped. I want them all found, and I want that witch dead," Damien said.

"I could've told you it was a trick sir," Janan said.

"Shut up, I am more intelligent than you!" Damien snapped.

"Yes sir, of course you are," Janan said sarcastically.

"Good that's better," Damien said.

The turbolift doors opened, James and Jessie came in.

"Oh my god, what is this s***?" James asked.

"I think it's Liberty X," Jessie replied.

"There she is, kill her now!" Damien yelled.

"Er yes sir," Janan said, he nodded at all the demons. They all brought out phasers.

"Ok, now this is not fair," Jessie muttered.

"No it isn't, but this is," James said, he raised a rifle. He fired at everyone, but Damien and Janan ducked.

"Damn, it's always the nameless guest stars that get hit only," Jessie said.

Damien looked incredibly pi**ed, he grabbed a phaser off one of the dead demons. "I'm sick and tired of you always getting in my way, die die die!" he screamed as he fired the phaser manically. James didn't have time to get away from them all and he was hit. He fell onto the ground.

Jessie knelt down beside him, she then glanced back at Damien. "You b***ard."

"Haha, no fiancée, you can now be my bride," Damien said.

Jessie picked up the rifle, she quickly stood up. "In your dreams," she said and she fired it. He ducked and the blast hit the viewscreen.

Damien then ran over to where Jessie was and he pushed her to the ground. He started strangling her. "I don't want you to be my bride witch, I want you dead."

Jessie pushed him off her, she got up. "Been there, done that," she said before kicking him hard in the head. She picked up the rifle again and she aimed it at Damien.

"You never learn do you, all you kill is the host. I'll be back again, you can never be rid of me," Damien said.

"Drop the rifle," Janan said. Jessie glanced over at him, Janan was pointing a phaser at her. Jessie dropped the rifle onto the ground.

Damien got up. "You lose this time, man that feels good to say." Jessie smiled and she shook her head. "What's there to smile about, I've won and there's nothing you can do about it."

"Look behind you," Jessie said.

Damien rolled his eyes, he turned around. James was behind him, not hurt at all. He hit him hard in the face, and he fell to the ground again.

Janan panicked and he aimed the phaser at James instead. Jessie quickly picked up her rifle and she fired at Janan. It hit him in the arm, so he dropped the phaser. He pulled out a remote, pressed a button. A portal appeared, he ran through it.

James went over to stand beside Jessie. She handed him the rifle. "How did..." she started to ask.

"Why won't you just die, Slaye? How come you're not dead, I had that phaser on kill," Damien muttered from the ground.

"Well phasers on kill only stun Slayers who are evil, even just a little bit," James said.

"It doesn't matter, I will get revenge on you godforsaken people someday. After all this host is a new host, even if I lose this one I can get another one. You can't get rid of me," Damien said.

"Well you won't be able to get anywhere if we keep killing each host straight away," Jessie said.

"You never know who's a host until it's too late," Damien laughed.

"Are those your final words, or would you rather have a chance to say something different?" James asked.

"You have not seen the last of me. I will be back in a brand new host that's played by an even more annoying actor than the previous one. Er, can I start that again?" Damien said.

James and Jessie glanced at each other, then back at Damien. "Erm, no," James said, he fired the rifle at Damien.

"Captain," Thompson said.

"What is it?" Kathryn asked. The ship shook violently. The lights and consoles came back on once again.

"The Enterprise has fired another deflector beam at us. They've given us more power than before," Thompson said.

"We're being hailed, audio only," Thompson said.

"Let's hear it," Kathryn said.

In: "Enterprise to Voyager? Anyone there?"

"James? When I get over there I'm gonna.." Kathryn said angrily

In: "Er... hi to you to."

"Oh great, Jessie's there too," Kathryn muttered.

"James do you know where Juna and Annika are?" Chakotay asked.

In: "No idea, I thought you'd know."

Kathryn turned to Harry. "Well?"

"They're both on Voyager, Captain. Should I beam Jessie over?" Harry asked.

"Stand by," Kathryn said.

"James, does she know?" Chakotay asked.

In: "Know what?"

In: "Haven't had a chance."

"Great, we'll beam both of you over. We need to get that spell done as soon as possible," Chakotay muttered.

Harry keyed in some commands, James and Jessie appeared on the Bridge.

"Er, there was no one else on the Enterprise's Bridge," James said.

Chakotay tapped his commbadge. "Chakotay to Lena, where are you?"

In: "Ow, watch it... er dad I'm a bit busy now..."

"After you've finished get to the Bridge, there's no one there," Chakotay said.

In: "What do you think I'm doing, god!"

Chakotay tapped his commbadge again. Kathryn couldn't take it any longer, she went over to James.

"What the hell were you thinking, young man. I really outta ground you for all eternity," Kathryn said angrily

Everyone but Jessie rolled their eyes. "She's high on coffee again right?" Jessie giggled.

Everyone glanced at each other. "Uhoh, I forgot about that," Chakotay muttered.

"Should we do the spell now?" James asked.

"Please," Chakotay replied.

"Spell, what spell?" Jessie asked.

"I'll tell you on the way, where are the witches?" James asked.

"They're in Juna's quarters," Harry muttered in response.

James and Jessie left the Bridge. Harry pulled an awful face at Jessie but she didn't notice. Only Chakotay did.

"Oh give it up Harry," Chakotay muttered.

Juna's Quarters:
Juna was looking through the spell book with an angry look on her face. Annika was sitting nearby pouting.

"There had like better be a cure. Shippers will like hate you even like more if the spell like stays on," Juna said. Annika rolled her eyes. The door chimed. "Like come in."

James came in, slowly followed by Jessie. "Oh, so it like worked.. good," Juna said.

"Is it just me or is there something odd about Annika I didn't notice before," James said.

Juna's eyes widened, after a few seconds so did Annika's. Juna glared at Annika, and she flicked through the book faster than before.

"What, what did I say?" James asked.

"You're like lucky that Jessie is like back, if she like wasn't you'd be in like love with Annika," Juna muttered.

"You what?" Jessie said in disgust. James looked deathly ill at the thought.

"She like put a spell on her that like makes dumped men and like men who've lost girlfriends in like death fall in love with like her," Juna said.

"I was just curious," Annika muttered.

"How can Annika cast spells?" Jessie asked.

"Like her sisters she's a witch, and I mean literally now," James replied.

"Hey, was that an insult?" Annika asked.

"I've like found the banishing spell, we'd like better get on with like it," Juna said.

"One question, if you're chanting the words will it still work?" Jessie asked.

"Like what?" Juna asked.

"Well you say like all the time," Jessie replied.

"I'm not like chanting the words, like Annika will be since she's the like oldest of us three," Juna said. She put the book on the ground, and she knelt down in front of it. Annika sighed, and she knelt down on the ground nearby. "We need to like form a circle," Juna said to Jessie as she passed the book over to Annika.

Jessie glanced at James briefly before kneeling on the ground next to Juna and Annika. Juna looked up at James. "Outsiders need to like be at least like two metres away from the like book during the spell." James went over to stand by the wall. Juna nodded at Annika.

"Er wait, what do we do?" Jessie asked.

"It's simple like Annika will chant the words like from the book, that's like all there is to it," Juna replied.

"If there's only one or two then it isn't a circle and it doesn't complete the spell," Annika said.

"Oh, makes sense now," Jessie said.

Juna nodded at Annika again. Annika began reading from the book. A golden mist emerged from the book and circled the three witches, when Annika finished reading a bright light engulfed the whole room, and then the whole ship. It spread to the planet and the Enterprise too. After a few seconds it died down.

The Bridge:
"The portals are all collapsing," Thompson said.

"I take it that was the spell, it seems to have worked," Chakotay said.

In: "Stuart to Bridge..."

"Yes it's worked, James," Chakotay said.

Juna's Quarters:
"The like spell infects whatever is in the like area, its range is like huge. Both ships like should be protected now like," Juna said.

In: "Ok, good work. Bridge out."

All three witches stood up. Juna picked the book up as she did so. She sat back down in her chair. "I'd better like continue to find that like undo spell."

"Fine you do that," Annika said, she collapsed on the chair she was sitting on earlier.

"We'd better leave them to it," James said.

"Yeah," Jessie muttered. She and him both left the room.

One day later:
Captains Log Stardate, oh who cares what the Stardate is.... ahem.. the portals have all been closed, the banishing spell has stopped the demons from ever coming onboard the ship again. Life onboard ships is slowly returning to normal, but for some that isn't a good thing.

The Mess Hall, Enterprise:
James, Jessie, Lena and Duncan were all sitting at a table near the window. A few people passed Jessie some odd looks as they went by but the group just ignored them. Duncan was sitting on Jessie's knee, drinking a Cherry Coke bottle.

"Mum has left Craig in charge of the Enterprise for a week, so that shows just how mad she is with me," Lena said.

"Craig, are you serious?" James laughed.

"Oh yes, she was in the mood when she chose him. You know what I mean the angry hyper mood," Lena replied.

"Yeah, I know that one too well," Jessie muttered.

Tom came up to the table. "Hi everyone, just thought I'd check to see if you're getting on ok."

"Er.. why?" Jessie asked.

"I thought I'd better be friendly. Harry isn't exactly one of Jessie's best friends anymore... he hates it that you got killed after Emma yet you've been brought back and she hasn't," Tom replied.

"Well we're ok, some people have given me a few odd looks but that's it," Jessie said.

"So Lena I heard about the punishment," Tom said.

"Don't remind me," Lena grumbled.

"What did she punish Yasmin and you with, James?" Tom asked.

"I don't know about Yasmin, with me she just keeps yelling everytime I see her," James replied.

"What about you Tom, haven't you and Craig been punished too. You went on the mission didn't you?" Jessie asked.

Tom glanced at Lena and then at James. They shook their heads at him. "Oh yeah, me and Craig er got screamed at last night."

"Is there something you guys aren't telling me?" Jessie asked.

"No," the three of them replied.

"Yes," Duncan said.

"Duncan, stop it," James said. Duncan glanced at him confused.

"But why don't you tell mummy that.." Duncan said.

"What that I burnt our old quarters down, oh yeah I forgot about that," James muttered.

"I didn't..." Duncan said.

"You did what?" Jessie said questioningly.

"Well I didn't burn it down, it did it itself. I don't know why I said that," James said.

"Oh well looks like I'll have to start replicating more new stuff," Jessie said.

"Oh by the way Jess, I meant to ask, what's it like being dead?" Tom asked.

"I thought nearly every main character has had a brush with death at some point," Jessie said.

"Yeah I have, it's just you've been dead the longest, well you know what I mean," Tom said.

"Tom please, I don't want to talk about this anymore," James said.

"Yeah, sorry.. don't know why I even asked," Tom said.

"Why don't you want to talk about it, do you not want to know what heaven looks like now?" Jessie asked.

"I don't need to know, I'm already there," James replied. He and Jessie then started kissing.

Tom, Duncan and Lena rolled their eyes. "Oh please," Duncan groaned.

"We'll have to get used to this again won't we?" Lena moaned.

"It's better than Mr Evil killing people," Tom said.

"Good point," Lena said.

The three of them waited a while patiently. Tom rolled his eyes again. "Geeze, would you two get a room already!"
