~Monday, February 15, 1932~

YarnKittymon: : ::very early in the morning, well before sunrise, Joshua slips out of the bedroom he shares, and opens the door to Isaac's room, crawling in bed beside his brother, in the noisy manner of a nearly-11-year-old trying to be quiet::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::groans a bit at being woken up but opens his eyes to look at Joshua:: What's wrong?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::his face looks a little gray, and the only thing Isaac can think of is his mother waking him nearly five years ago, on Joshua's birthday, asking him to heal his brother as best he could; Joshua speaks very softly:: I don't feel good.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::automatically raises his hand to check Joshua's temperature:: Do you feel sick?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::feels rather cold, just like the last time:: Not like a cold or the flu... ::closes his eyes, snuggling closer to his brother::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sits up a bit more, looking worried, and takes Joshua's hand, trying to heal him with his powers::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::opens his eyes, looking a little scared; murmurs:: It only helped a little.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::tries to push his powers further, hating to see his brother like this::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::suddenly starts to cry, never mind that he's almost 11 and should behave better; hugs Isaac tightly:: It's like they're draining me...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::stops trying to heal him and hugs Joshua back, looking confused:: Who? What?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: It's like...::he stops himself rather suddenly, still crying::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::gently:: Like what?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::very quietly:: I don't want them to get you. You can't go after them.
Quantum Catz: IS: How can they be draining you from here? It's impossible
YarnKittymon: JH: ::defensively:: But that's what it feels like! I wish Mommy was here.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs, looking worried:: Why don't you try to sleep again, okay? Maybe you'll feel a bit better then...
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: Okay. ::even quieter:: Can I sleep in your bed though?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles slightly:: Sure
YarnKittymon: JH: ::lays down next to his brother and drops into a fitful sleep::

YarnKittymon: : ::a couple hours after Joshua went in to tell Isaac he was sick, Dolly seems to be deep in a forest, where it's a bit windy; she hears the crack of twigs that indicates someone's approaching::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::surprised by her new location and frightened by the sound of someone's approach, she takes a few steps backwards, glancing around her for an escape. She wasn't sure which woods she was in but she had no desire to come face to face with the monsters:::
YarnKittymon: : ::of course, the first thing Dolly sees is a frightful man dressed in neat clothes from the last century, though his skin is just about falling off his bones--he looks rather surprised to see Dolly, though not afraid of her, and he doesn't speak::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::her big dark brown eyes widen in fear but her legs seem to be rooted to the spot, only able to stare at the horrible looking creature::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster suddenly laughs, a rather frightful noise coming from a walking corpse:: You're half her weight, but I see you in her. Did you come to beg for mercy too?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::her voice trembling:: What.. what do you mean? ::she takes another step away from him::
YarnKittymon: : You must be her daughter, then. But I won't accept a trade this time. ::steps closer to Dolly:: Even if women *do* taste better.
Maeve Owens: (is that the same guy as before?))
YarnKittymon: ((Nope; he's dressed different (and his flesh is more rotted ^^;;; )))
Maeve Owens: DK: ::attempting to not appear so frightened, she straightens her spine and squints up at the monster before her:: What do you mean a trade? And I dont believe my mother would know someone as horrible as you! ::even so she continues to move backwards::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster follows her, grinning:: I gave her how many hours after the trade, and she never told you? ::grinning eerily, his white teeth almost glowing in his face::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she shakes her head sending her long brown curls tossing back and forth. She doesn't believe him but her curiosity gets the best of her:: What did she trade? ::continues to move backwards, glancing over her shoulder now and then::
YarnKittymon: : Her life, of course, for your baby brother's. But after he fell into that trap, I was free to take him again, whenever I like. And I choose now.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::before she can reply the forest fades from view and when she opens her eyes the ceiling of her bedroom comes into focuss. Surprised, she quickly sits up, the world around her still spinning as she does so. Once her head clears, she remembers the monster's words. Throwing the covers from her body she hops out of bed and runs towards Joshua's room, calling his name::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::scowls and groans, pulling the cover over his head:: People're trying to sleep here, you know
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she tops in the doorway:: Wheres Josh?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::mutters:: I don't know - isn't he in bed?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she doesnt bother to reply, instead turning towards Isaacs room. She knocks softly on the door:: Isaac?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::comes over to the door and opens it, quietly:: What is it?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she glances down at the ground for a moment, her voice low and barely audible:: I... just wanted to see how Josh was...
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is still sleeping on Isaac's bed, looking pale, and not kicking as he often does::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looking quite worried:: He wasn't feeling too good...but he felt better after a while the last time...::seems to be trying to convince himself::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::unsteadily:: Isaac... ::She looks like she wants to say something but she isn't sure if she should or even how to explain it::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::worriedly:: What's wrong?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she doesn't meet his eyes:: I had a ::her voice falters over the word:: dream... about the monsters and they said they were free to take Josh again...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::pales:: He said he felt like he was being drained...but I...it's impossible for them to drain him like this...it's... ::looks back at Josh, fearfully::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::curls up around a corner of the blanket, not waking::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she peaks over at Josh and she begins to tremble slightly:: They said they gave mom a many hours before...
Quantum Catz: IS: What d'you mean?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she glances away from him again:: A monster was there... and he said he wouldnt take anymore trades, even if women tasted better.. ::even quieter:: he said I looked like a smaller version of mom.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::remembers his mother's death, all those hours after Josh got ill the first time; clenches his fists:: I don't care what he says - i'm not going to let them take him. Or anyone else ::moves to find clothes to change into::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::scared:: What are you going to do Isaac? You cant go after them on your own!
Quantum Catz: IS: Watch me. I'll kill whatever one you saw just like the one i killed before. They're not getting Josh
Maeve Owens: DK: ::grabs onto her brother's arm. looking petrified:: Alone? They'll just kill you too!
Quantum Catz: IS: Well who else in this town would go? They wouldn't even let *me* go when he was trapped before!
Maeve Owens: DK: What about Maeve? She helped you the last time...
Quantum Catz: IS: She isn't here, is she?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::suddenly opens his eyes, not seeming to see the wall he's staring at::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::quietly:: You could send for her...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks over at Josh, scared:: There isn't time
YarnKittymon: JH: ::slowly comes to himself, gazing up at Isaac; softly:: I'm not better yet...
Maeve Owens: DK: ::shakes her head:: You cant go alone Isaac... please? If they get you then we'll... ::she cant even bring herself to finish the sentence, not wanting to voice the possiblity of losing both brothers and she looks closer to tears than before::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::hugs his sister, though he's looking worriedly at his brother:: I'm not going to wait days for Maeve to show up - if Josh died before then i'd never forgive myself
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she almost suggests to send Eli for her but cant get the words out, not wanting to put him into any danger. Instead she clings to her brother and tries to hold the tears back::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks more scared when Isaac says the word "died"; closes his eyes and hides under the covers::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::standing a bit back from the doorway:: If you need Maeve so much...i could get her...I'd go faster than any messenger anyway...
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she glances up at Isaac, waiting for him to answer::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates for a moment but he quickly turns back to getting out clothes:: You can if you want but i'm still going now
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she trembles again, but she says nothing else to stop her brother, knowing he's made up his mind::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::very softly, under the covers:: Don't...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::in reply to Joshua:: I'm not going to let them hurt you like this
YarnKittymon: JH: ::doesn't say anything more::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::quietly:: Eli, if you're going for Maeve... please be careful?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::mutters:: I can fly - nothing can hurt me in the air
Maeve Owens: DK: ::nods:: Then hurry? Before Isaac gets himself into too much trouble....
Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks at his brother, rather wide-eyed at the thought of him facing the monsters all on his own, and then he runs back to his room to get changed::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::very quietly:: Isaac? Can you heal me again?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::to Isaac:: What happens if he needs you while you're gone?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::winces and quickly moves to his bed, sitting on the edge and taking Josh's hand in his own, although he's sure that his healing won't do much good::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::peeks out at Isaac from under the covers; squeezes his brother's hand tightly:: Maybe...maybe the townspeople will...will help you...now that they know...they can kill the monsters...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks away:: The longer i spend trying to get people to help me...the more they'll drain you...
YarnKittymon: JH: But it helps a little when you heal me...
Maeve Owens: DK: You need to wait for Maeve and Eli to come back... that way if he needs you Eli can come and get you...you can hold it off that long cant you?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks uncertainly between Dolly and Josh and then finally sighs:: Okay...but if he gets any worse i'm leaving - help or no help
Maeve Owens: DK: ::looks a little more relaxed but she still looks nervous everytime her glance falls on Josh:: Has Eli left yet? ::looks towards his room::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::smiles weakly at Isaac, though he still looks pretty awful::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::doesn't bother to tell his siblings that he's going once he's dressed, he just opens the window, changes into a falcon, one of the fastest birds he knows, and leaves::

YarnKittymon: : ::not long after sunrise, Matthew, one of the town elders, tracks down Isaac and asks him to come with him for a few minutes::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::is still waiting rather impatiently for Eli to return with Maeve but he agrees to go with Matthew::
YarnKittymon: MT: ::takes Isaac down into the basement of the meeting hall, a place Isaac didn't even know existed. Matthew lights a candle and they can see a ghostly woman floating above the floor, what should be her feet trailing off into a mist--her eyes are closed, and, unbelievably, she looks like Isaac's mother the last time he saw her::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::pales when he sees the ghost-like woman, thinking of his mother:: What is this?
YarnKittymon: : ::the apparition opens her eyes, not looking in the least surprised; she seems to be looking at Isaac; softly:: As the monsters go, so does Saxton.
Quantum Catz: IS: What?
YarnKittymon: : If the monsters are destroyed, the town will perish too. ::then, looking rather worried:: But don't let them hurt Joshua!
Quantum Catz: IS: I'll never let them hurt Josh ::darkly:: What do you mean about the town?
YarnKittymon: : ::looks at Isaac for a few moments, rather lovingly, then repeats:: As the monsters go, so does Saxton. In a tide of blood.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::ignores the loving look, not believing that this is his mother he's talking to:: And what's that supposed to mean? I don't have any way to help Josh but to kill them
YarnKittymon: : If the monsters are destroyed, so is Saxton. ::and she closes her eyes again, as if in sleep::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::snaps:: *Why*? What do they have to do with the town?
YarnKittymon: : ::the ghost doesn't reply::
Quantum Catz: IS: Answer me! Answer me or i'll go kill them all right now!
YarnKittymon: MT: ::softly:: We've been trying to figure that out all this time, Isaac. She's the only clue we have.
YarnKittymon: : ::the ghost still doesn't open her eyes::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves towards the doorway:: Well i don't believe it - nothing happened when Maeve and i killed that last one
YarnKittymon: MT: ::quickly:: Don't! I don't claim to understand it, but the rest of us--even your other siblings--could *die* if you try it.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::freezes, wincing:: What else am i supposed to do? Let Josh die instead?
YarnKittymon: MT: ::looks away, sounding like he's not particularly fond of himself at the moment:: Yeah.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::turns to face Matthew, wide-eyed:: I can't *do* that! If Dolly's right then Mom died to keep him alive before - i can't let him die now
YarnKittymon: MT: ::sounding cold and tired, all at once:: So you'll sentence us all to death, to save him.
Quantum Catz: IS: We've already lost our parents - we can't lose Josh too...and i'm not going to sit and listen to some creature masquerading as my mother and spouting riddles at me ::heads for the door::
YarnKittymon: MT: ::follows after him:: She never showed you what she could do, did she? She could project herself like a ghost. What if this is something left of her?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::winces and then says:: Then she'll know that i can't do what you're asking
YarnKittymon: MT: ::shakes his head:: We won't help you, you know. ::turns and walks away without another word::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::has just reached the town with Maeve riding on his back as a flying horse::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::watches Matthew's back for a moment, wearily, and then notices Maeve and Eli and breathes a sigh, partly from relief::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she was a bit unsure about flying with Eli, but once high in the air she found it quite exhilarating. Of course the dire situation she was heading to kept her from enjoying it too much::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves over to Maeve and Eli; seriously:: Thank-you for coming to help. No-one in the village will...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she slides off of Eli and then gives Isaac a half smile:: Didn't have a choice, cant let them hurt Josh. And why wont anyone help?
Quantum Catz: IS: They think somehow it'll destroy the village
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns:: How would it destroy the village?
Quantum Catz: IS: I don't know - like the two are connected or something - but i can't let anything happen to Josh
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Hows he holding up?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::winces:: My healing him helps a bit but he doesn't get any better
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looking rather worried for her little friend:: Oh, well then, what are we waiting for? Lets go get us some monsters.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles slightly:: I was waiting for you. Really...thanks for this
Maeve Owens: MV: ::returns his slight smile:: You're welcome, and I'm ready when you are.
Quantum Catz: IS: Then let's go ::heads towards the woods::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::follows him::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::turns back into his human form and says softly:: Good...luck, Isaac. You'd better come back ::and then he runs back to the house where Dolly and Josh are::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::glances back at his brother and then focuses on finding the monsters::
YarnKittymon: : ::they hear a noise up ahead, something moving in the brush::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she forms a fireball:: Fry now and ask questions later?
Quantum Catz: IS: It's not likely to be any of the people round here anyway
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shrugs and pulls her hand back to throw:: Think theres a possibility of catching the whole woods on fire? ::smirks:: Would that be a bad thing if it did?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::darkly:: Not in my opinion
Maeve Owens: MV: ::lets the fireball loose, aiming for the bush::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a pretty awful scream as whatever Maeve hit catches on fire fairly well:: Don't! I come in peace!
Maeve Owens: MV: Dont bother unless you plan to release Josh.
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster shows herself--it's not the female who caught them earlier, and though her short hair is burned all on one side (along with the branch she's carrying), Isaac thinks she looks familiar, as someone he knew when he was small. The monster looks rather unhappy, and says:: For a price, sure.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Your life? Sounds good to me. ::forms another fireball::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::frowns at the creatures familiarity; mutters:: Which one of you's draining him?
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster cringes slightly when she sees another fireball; quietly:: The boss. ::looks at Isaac sadly:: But he'll let him go, in exchange for you.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::pales slightly:: He told Dolly no more trades
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster looks steadily at Isaac:: He told her he didn't want *her.* He wants *you.*
Quantum Catz: IS: ::clenches his fists:: Why me? Cos i helped kill that other guy?
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster turns away; quietly:: You're the only one who can kill us. Without you... ::she suddenly glares, bearing almost no resemblance to the woman Isaac used to know:: Do you want him to die? Are you a coward?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances over to Isaac:: She could be leading us into a trap.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: Josh is too important ::looks at the monster and swallows:: Take us to your boss then...
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster looks rather surprised, then turns away and motions for them to follow::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she looks nervous but she moves to follow the woman, her fireball ready and her whole body on guard, prepared for an attack::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::appears between Isaac and Maeve and the monster, with Guy at her side::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::their sudden appearance startles her so bad she jumps, the fireball sailing out of her hands and into the sky and she lets out a surprised squeak::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster looks back, eyes narrowed::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods to Becky, trying to keep his composure:: Thank you. ::smiles at Maeve:: I'm happy to see you too.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she's still wide eyed and shocked:: What are you doing here?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the monster, rather nervously:: He asked me to take him to you
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods:: Heard you left town without me, thought you could use some help, if you won't withdraw entirely and leave this to us men.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes narrow at Guy:: Most certainly not! I'm just as capable, if not more, than any man! What do you know about this anyway?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::doesn't reply to that, eyeing the monster:: Is this a friend of yours?
Maeve Owens: MV: Yes actually, we're were just about to go play in the woods... So why dont you and Becky return back to town and I'll see you in a few days? ::smiles sweetly at him and goes to move past them::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly at Maeve:: We could maybe help - i could at least get you away if you get in trouble...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: I don't want to see you hurt, Maeve. ::glances back at Becky, hesitantly:: *We* don't want to see you hurt.
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster suddenly says:: Hurry up! ::and starts walking again::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::darkly:: This is wasting time Josh doesn't have, we need to go - whether they're with us or not
Quantum Catz: IS: ::follows the monster::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she stops to look at Becky, looking worried:: Yes but if they get a hold of you there is no escaping them... ::she pauses; quietly:: It could be worse than what happened at the Madison estate.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::had been following Isaac, but stops to listen to Maeve::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster looks back at Isaac; very softly:: You don't need to meet the boss, unless you want him to make you one of us. I can drain you right here.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks worried but sighs:: I'm not the way i was then...and i can't just let you go off on your own...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::darkly:: I want to see him
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sighs, shakes her head:: well there isn't time to convince you otherwise but if they even come near you, you have to promise me you'll leave? ::smirks:: Toby will kill me if anything happens to you...*
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster goes on without another word; they pass a silent sentry--the female monster who caught them in the trap last time--and she cringes slightly upon seeing Isaac and Maeve, but doesn't otherwise move::
Quantum Catz: BM: Yeah, well, it isn't Toby's business anymore anyway
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks at the monster:: Yeah, told you this wasnt over. ::glances over at Becky:: Whether it is or isn't wont be an issue.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::doesn't look at the monster as he passes::
YarnKittymon: : ::finally, Isaac and the others find themselves face-to-face with a monster a good foot and a half taller than the others, balding, with dark brown hair and immaculate clothes that look like they came from the last century; he has a big smile on his rotting face when he sees Isaac:: Welcome, young man, but did you really need an entourage to come visit me?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::mutters:: safety in numbers
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her tone clearly sarcastic::
Quantum Catz: IS: I guess i need to be sure you won't just kill me and then take Josh too
YarnKittymon: : ::coldly:: I'm a man of my word; if your mother weren't dead, she'd attest to that.
Quantum Catz: IS: Well her death wasn't worth much if all you did was wait a few years before doing it again
YarnKittymon: : It's not my fault he fell into one of our traps. If he'd been a good boy...::he suddenly grins, and Maeve feels rather tired, though not incapacitated, which very well might just make her more angry::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::frowns:: What did they mean about the town dying if you do? I need to know
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she grits her teeth, her eyes narrowing at the creature:: So thats how you're draining him? Picking on a small boy... you should be ashamed of yourself. ::she starts to form a fireball::
YarnKittymon: : ::loses the smile, ignoring Maeve for the time-being:: If I die everyone in town will be killed. That includes your family, you know. Over 50 years ago, we made a covenant. That's all.
Quantum Catz: IS: But Saxton didn't exist then...
YarnKittymon: : ::laughs:: Like I'd make a deal with the so-called "leaders" of your town? I made it with the land itself, fool. And I'll drain you and the redhead too if you try anything.
Quantum Catz: IS: How...how can you make a deal with the *land*?
YarnKittymon: : ::sharply:: It's not hard when you know magic! Quit stalling!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances back at Guy and Becky; whispering:: They have traps hidden in the ground... be careful where you walk. Unless of course I can convince you two to get out of here now?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::coldly:: No chance. ::walks forward, glaring at Isaac:: You're not really going to strike a deal with this monster, are you?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sharply:: I don't have much of a choice - my brother'll die otherwise
Maeve Owens: MV: Isaac! Whats going to happen to them if you die? Whats going to stop them from taking anyone else? I say we end it here and now.
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster steps back a step:: I don't think you'll be doing that.
Quantum Catz: IS: Why not?
YarnKittymon: : Even if you try, my associates can have two of your friends dead well before you'd have killed me. To say nothing about that brother of yours.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::turns to look at Becky again. pleadingly:: *please* get out of here?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::winces. He really doesn't want to make a deal with the creature since he knows his siblings won't be any happier to lose him over Josh...but he doesn't see that he has a choice::
Quantum Catz: BM: But if they attack i can get you out of here - i'm not going to just run out and leave you here - if you didn't come back i'd never forgive myself
YarnKittymon: GU: ::pushes Isaac aside, glaring at the monster:: I don't know what kind of *spell* you have on him, but it ends now. ::looks quite ready to punch the monster in the jaw::
Maeve Owens: MV: And if you dont move fast enough and they kill you I'm never going to forgive mysefl! ::sighs:: Well, no matter what if they live they'll just do this again. ::the fireball in her hand has grown a bit larger from her holding it and she steps in front of the group and without another word she launches it at the leader::
YarnKittymon: : ::the leader's clothes catch on fire, though it's hard to imagine how the flames could make his flesh look any worse; he growls, and the first monster--the one who had trapped Isaac and Maeve--runs towards Becky, aiming to touch the back of her neck::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::teleports a few metres back towards the exit::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::runs forward and tries to grab the leader's arm, ignoring the flames:;
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she turns around to find the creature from before and with a slight grin she forms another fireball:: So we meet again. ::throws it at her::
YarnKittymon: : ::Isaac's hand gets burned, as the leader continues to burn as well, but Isaac's powers clearly do some good because the monster yells desperately:: You know where I'm getting the power to survive from, don't you?
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster dodges part of Maeve's fireball, so it only gets part of her arm, and then she runs forward at Maeve::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::steps in-between, and winds up on the ground, being drained by the monster who looks up at Maeve with a grin::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::swallows:: But if i kill you fast enough you won't be able to take the energy from him
YarnKittymon: : ::coldly (though still sounding rather afraid), to Isaac:: So he'll be swept away when the sea turns to blood. I'm sure he'll appreciate that.
Maeve Owens: MV: Guy! ::throws another fireball at the creature:: Pick on someone who can fight back why dont you?
Maeve Owens: ((the last part being directed at the monster))
Quantum Catz: IS: Tell me how to undo the covenant and maybe i'll let you live a little longer
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster laughs at Maeve, though the fireball burns briefly on her:: While I'm draining him you can't do enough to hurt me...I'm taking more than enough energy from *him* to keep healthy.
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster glares up at Isaac:: Magic doesn't work that way, boy.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::grins and then throws herself at the monster, hoping to knock it away from him::
Quantum Catz: IS: Then how does it work?
YarnKittymon: YarnKittymon rolled 2 6-sided dice: 1 4
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster's fingers seem to be burrowed deep inside Guy's neck, so Maeve can't separate them::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster leader looks at Isaac, suddenly realizing he very well might die here; quietly:: When I came to the town I helped put...put a hole in the wall around the island. It...it was mended...but once I'm gone...
Quantum Catz: IS: Once you're gone what?
YarnKittymon: : ::softly:: The wall will tear again. Probably explode. And the water level's a lot higher in the ocean outside. And your town's never had to bear its brunt; it wasn't made for it.
Maeve Owens: MV: Then take me? I've heard women taste better.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::eases up on his power a bit:: Why would the land make it that that happens if you're gone?
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster shakes her head, looking down at Guy:: I let the last man get away, and that boy too. I won't let this one live.
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster leader doesn't reply, seeming to be focusing on something else::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::shouts:: Why?
Maeve Owens: MV: Isaac! I cant get her away from Guy! ::she forms another fireball and lets it grow::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster leader opens his eyes, smiling at Isaac, before he can reply to Maeve:: At least you'll be miserable when I'm dead.
Quantum Catz: IS: Tell me how to stop it!
YarnKittymon: : ::the third monster--the one Isaac remembers from nine years ago---yells:: Get everyone out of Saxton! ::then she screams, falling to her knees::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she throws the fireball at the monster holding Guy::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks from Guy to the leader - not wanting to let him go incase he hurts Josh more, but not wanting to cause anything to happen to Saxton either, or let Guy die...::
Maeve Owens: MV: Becky! Maybe you should warn people in Saxton... see if they'll listen to you! ::goes back to trying to knock the woman away from Guy::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster yells, then glares at Maeve with bloodshot eyes:: Will you really trade yourself for him?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::grins, one hand behind her back with a growing fireball in it:: Come and get me.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates and then teleports away, to whoever would be the best person to try and evacuate the town::
YarnKittymon: : ::she finds herself in front of the man Isaac had been talking with earlier; he, and several other men in the town, are down in the basement by the apparent ghost, discussing what to do::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks around:: Um...hi...
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster drops Guy, who's half-dead anyway, and dashes towards Maeve::
YarnKittymon: MT: ::stares at Becky:: Who are *you*?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quickly throws the fireball at the monster, while another fireball forms in her other hand::
Quantum Catz: BM: Um...i was with a guy called Isaac and these monsters and...one of them said that Saxton would be flooded if he died...and Isaac didn't look like he was going to let the guy go...
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster is thrown backwards, landing right on Guy, and then, suddenly, she stops moving, her eyes fixed blankly at the sky, though her eyes, and her flesh, stay in place::
YarnKittymon: : ::Isaac's monster tries to struggle free::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::shouts at the leader again:: Tell me how to help the town! Don't you have any humanity in you?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::hesitantly she goes over and attempts to shove the monster off of him, trying to see if it really is dead:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster doesn't react at all, though Maeve shoves her off all right; Guy looks exhausted::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster leader looks at Isaac in cold triumph:: If I did, your brother would be alive now, wouldn't he?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she turns to face the leader, fire blazing in her eyes:: Well, if he isn't alive then theres no more reason to keep you around is there? ::trying to fight back her fatigue, she forms another fireball::
YarnKittymon: MT: ::looks at Becky blankly, then shakes his head, nodding at the men:: You heard her; she made up our minds for us. Everyone, go back to your families. Don't take a thing; we might not have much time.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::stares at the monster, in shock and then swallows:: Well if he's dead then there's nothing to stop me killing you - Eli can get Dolly to safety if there really is a flood ::uses his power more on the leader::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the ghost-like figure:: Who is that?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she approaches, moving around behind the leader and once she's close enough she throws the fireball at his back::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster leader closes his eyes, weakly speaking:: It hasn't been long...I could bring him back...::yells when the fireball hits him; it smoulders slowly, and he seems to be growing very weak::
YarnKittymon: MT: ::softly:: You don't want to wait in here; we're underground. ::heads for the stairs:: It's those kids' mother--Isaac and the rest. If that much is left of her. I don't think there's any way to take her with us.
Maeve Owens: MV: Why should we believe you? For all we know you're just trying to save your own neck! ::forms another fireball and waits for it to grow a little larger before she throws it at him::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::runs after the man, glancing back at the figure:: The poor woman...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::sits up weakly and starts slashing with a knife at the monster who nearly killed him, hacking at her flesh::
YarnKittymon: MT: ::nods, walking quickly towards the next house; motions to the edge of town:: Go up that path--near the graveyard, the ground's a lot higher. Should be OK there.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she's starting to feel pretty tired and she stops for a moment to catch her breath::
Quantum Catz: BM: What about Isaac's family? Where do they live? I'll go warn them...
YarnKittymon: MT: ::points towards the shore:: No time for euphamisms. It's that way and it's the most ramshackle hut in town.
Quantum Catz: BM: Okay ::runs for Isaac's house, knocking on the door when she gets there::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster looks coldly at Isaac; softly:: You could have had h--::but he seems to be cut off in mid-sentence, and he suddenly becomes nothing more than a skeleton::
YarnKittymon: : ::the moment the monster leader dies, there's a loud rumbling noise near Saxton, coming from the sea::
YarnKittymon: : ::in the house, Joshua has been doing so much worse the kids are sure he's going to die, but he's somehow managed to cling onto life::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::backs away, looking pale at the sound of the sea:: Oh no...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::gives up on the knocking and teleports past the door, running through the hallway and calling out::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she hasn't moved from Joshua's bedside and at the sound of someone shouting she hesitantly leaves his side to find out who it is::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sees Dolly and says:: You've got to get out of here - there's going to be a flood
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she staggers to where Guy is hacking away at the corpse:: Come on... its dead already...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: Not really. ::keeps at it::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she blinks at the woman before her and is about to ask who she is when she hears the rumbling:: Eli! ::she rushes back into the bedroom:: We have to get Josh out of here!
Maeve Owens: MV: What? ::sinks down to the ground beside him, warn out::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a sudden crack like thunder, so loud even Isaac and his companions are hurt by the sound, and suddenly, the whole sky seems to turn red::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she jumps:: Wha? What was that?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::opens his mouth to ask why but, seeing the look on his sister's face and hearing the rumbling, says:: I can't change into a horse or anything in here, help me carry him
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is completely unconscious, and doesn't even stir at the loud cracking noise::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she nods and grabs Joshua's arms:: Get his legs!
Quantum Catz: IS: The town's going to die - we killed everyone ::begins to run back towards the town, although he's been rather weakened by using so much of his power::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::grabs Joshua's legs and helps Dolly carry him out - Becky opens the door for them::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks over at Guy::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's another crack, and then the waters break loose from the sea, shining red as they wash up towards the shore of Saxton::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::gets up, weakly:: She's still not dead.
Maeve Owens: MV: How would you know? She looks dead to me.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up at the sky:: You need to hurry
Quantum Catz: EK: ::once they're out of the house Eli changes into a white winged horse again::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::sharply:: Can you burn her? Do it if you can! I guess I can tell if a monster's dead or not!
YarnKittymon: : ::Isaac meets up with about half a dozen people who are fleeing from Saxton; not content to stand on the high shore by the graveyard, they look rather like they'll run all the way to the next town, and don't even stop to greet him::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looking rather pale and weak; she mutters:: Fine... ::she forms another fireball, and throws it at the body::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster doesn't react, but the flames engulf the body, and in a couple minutes' time the body shudders and turns to a charred skeleton, too suddenly to be a natural process::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::Weakly:: happy now?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::just as weakly:: Yeah. What...what say we just wait here a bit? Even if it's the apocalypse we might as well face it here than...than running closer towards it...
YarnKittymon: : ::the waters approach like ocean waves, the first ones not overtaking the beach, but the next few coming higher, wetting the ankles of anyone in the lower half of Saxton; the next wave looks bigger::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head:: Gotta find out if Josh is okay... ::she starts to move towards the town::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is a bit surprised when Eli changes but she turns to Dolly:: Quickly - i'll help you get Josh on, once you are
YarnKittymon: GU: ::tries to follow, though he's in worse shape than Maeve:: Don't get your hopes up, if he said he was dead.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she nods, and climbs onto Eli, then reaches down for her brother::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: I tend to need proof before I believe the words of a *monster*.
YarnKittymon: : ::the next wave is higher, past ankle-height, and feels warm like blood, though it washes away clear when the wave falls back::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::lifts Josh up to Dolly::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::stamps his hoof when Joshua's on, to ask Dolly if she's ready::
Quantum Catz: ((is this reaching them?))
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she looks at Becky:: What about you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: Don't worry - i can teleport away
YarnKittymon: ((Should be))
Quantum Catz: EK: ::flaps his wings and lifts up into the air and away from the sea::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she holds on tightly to Joshua::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks down at the water, rather grimacing at the feel on her ankles and half checking to make sure that there isn't blood there::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::stops running when he sees Eli rise into the air and breathes a sigh of relief::
YarnKittymon: : ::the next wave is rougher and more violent, looking a foamy pink in the light; it looks like almost enough to take the Kindall's house away, though it barely holds::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::follows Maeve at a distance, completely winded::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::teleports away to where Maeve is, appearing beside her::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::jumps again, not use to Becky doing that for so long:: Geez... ::once she's caught her breath:: Have you seen Isaac? We need to see if Josh is okay...
Quantum Catz: BM: He was unconscious but not dead...his brother changed into a horse and got him and the girl away...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sighs in relief::
YarnKittymon: MT: ::is up around the high ground outside of Saxton, trying to count and figure out if everyone's made it safe or not::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::lands near whereever the people are gathering::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::was watching Eli's flight and runs to meet his siblings, tearfully:: Josh, is Josh okay? He said...he said he was...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sees the waters flooding the town, even more convinced that her hatred for oceans is definitely founded and moves off to find Isaac and everyone else::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows Maeve:: The water felt like blood...it was horrible...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks back at Becky, frowning:: Thats strange...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::finally catches up with Maeve and takes her hand, looking at her and Becky:: Are you all right?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is still in his sister's arms, eyes closed, and looking a little flushed now::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::gives him a small smile:: Tired but fine. Are you okay? ::mutters:: You should have gone back when I told you to.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::smiles:: You should've too...and I knocked that monster out, anyway. I wasn't useless.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she tears up when she sees Isaac standing before her, very much alive.::: He's alive, just unconscious.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::closes his eyes:: Thank God
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she narrows her eyes at him:: Oh and I am? And for your information the only reason you are standing here is because *I* killed that monster... if I hadn't you'd still be on the ground getting your life drained away!
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks at Maeve sharply:: I know for a *fact* I knocked that monster unconscious.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head:: Nope, it knocked *you* unconscious.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looking rather frustrated, as if he wants to argue more, then turns away:: Fine. Call yourself a hero. And you *did* kill her for good; I'll concede that much.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: There's not much point in arguing over it - the monsters are dead, aren't they?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::rolls her eyes; muttering:: I just got a whole village destroyed, I wouldn't call myself a hero.

YarnKittymon: MT: ::is looking around, trying to see if everyone's accounted for; he mutters something about all the horses being drowned::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she approaches the group of people and looks around for Isaac and Josh::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::is leaning against Eli, his eyes closed, tiredly::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is still completely unconscious, but his breathing is steady and he doesn't look like his sleep is troubled::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she comes to stand beside Isaac; softly:: Hey.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::turns his head slightly and smiles at her:: He's okay...he's really okay...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::is leaning heavily against a tree, about ready to faint::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles back:: Yeah, I'm glad he's okay.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks up at the sky:: You think it's going to stay like this because of what we did?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::goes over to Guy:: You okay?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::after a very long pause, quietly:: You don't believe in ghosts, do you?
Quantum Catz: BM: Kinda...i sort of was one for a while - why?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances up:: I don't know... I hope not. Looks kind of creepy.
YarnKittymon: MT: ::stands next to Isaac, looking out at the flooded town, which is little more than a few rooftops at this point; points out at the distance:: The wall's fallen down. That's where the water came from. Maybe that's why the sky 's red.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::closes his eyes, not answering Becky::
Quantum Catz: BM: Guy?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::falls down, his eyes closed::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::leans his head on Eli again:: At least no one died
Maeve Owens: MV: :: she nods, looking out at the flooded homes::
YarnKittymon: MT: ::nods, still looking out at the water; softly:: Your mother would be proud, I think.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::drops to her knees, touching Guy's shoulder:: Guy? Guy, are you awake?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::doesn't open his eyes; softly:: I'm so tired.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles slightly:: I hope so
Quantum Catz: BM: You'll probably be alright with a bit of rest...
YarnKittymon: : ::the town elder's wife sidles up next to him, looking rather upset:: *Proud*? The whole town's been destroyed, most of us don't have a single coin--we're going to starve.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: Maybe. It's payback, isn't it?
Quantum Catz: BM: Payback?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::very quietly:: Ask Mr. Quinn.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::winces:: I'm sure near by towns will help out in anyway they can... ::she looks over at Isaac::
Quantum Catz: ((don't they get stipends or something to live there?))
YarnKittymon: ((The variants do if they know about it--but maybe the folks in Saxton don't (or else Isaac's family wouldn't have so much trouble getting by :P )--and they aren't all freaks either))
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks up:: We'll find a way - at least now no-one's living in fear of the monsters, and no-one else like Josh'll get hurt
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't think you're gonna die...Donald was ill before he came anywhere near here...you're just tired
YarnKittymon: MT: ::nods, looking out at the town one last time:: We need to get moving if we're going to make Hollowburgh before nightfall. ::more loudly:: Come on, everyone.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: He died once before he left.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates:: He did?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looking at Isaac:: If you need a place to stay you're welcome to come back to Marquis with me...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::curses softly:: What am I saying?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: Thanks...but we couldn't impose on you like that...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: I don't know...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: But if it weren't for me..::slowly opens his eyes::
Quantum Catz: BM: If it weren't for you...what?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks at Becky, rather troubled, silently::
Quantum Catz: BM: You know...i can be a good listener...if you want to talk...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::closes his eyes again:: A good talker too, I'm sure.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates:: I...wouldn't tell Maeve if you didn't want me to...if that's what you mean...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::opens his eyes again, looking rather surprised, then looks past Becky at the red sky showing through the trees; curses softly:: I must be tired. Listen to me.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Well, i offered. If you don't want to talk...maybe you should rest...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: Yeah. ::closes his eyes, and is fast asleep within a couple seconds::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::watches him for a minute and then stands up and goes over to isaac and maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles at him:: You wouldn't be imposing... just like you said I wasn't a few months back.
Quantum Catz: IS: Yeah but this is me and my whole family
Maeve Owens: MV: And you made two round trips on my account... Its no trouble, honest.
Quantum Catz: BM: I heard...Toby's living at the doctor's place now...he would have plenty of space...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::glances over at Becky:: Ah, see? Not imposing at all then.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: But i don't even know this guy...
Maeve Owens: MV: Well, once you meet him then you'll know him and he isn't going to say no to you staying there anyway.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::uncertainly:: Are you sure?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: He's a nice guy and he does have the room since he's staying at the doctors office. He wont turn you away. I promise. And if he does he'll know he'll have a few burns he's going to have to heal. ::smiles::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks up at Dolly:: What do you think?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::shrugs:: Sounds like we have a better chance of finding a nice bed to sleep in if we go to Marquis.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::nods and then smiles slightly at Maeve:: Guess we're going to Marquis. Thanks for all of this, Maeve...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles back:: No need to thank *me*, but you're welcome anyway.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up at Dolly and Josh:: I could take Josh ahead if you want...get him into a bed... ::glances back:: Although Guy looks like he could use one too right now
Maeve Owens: MV: ::follows Becky's gaze, she gasps when she sees him laying there and looks a bit guilty for having forgotten about him:: Oh... what happened to him?
YarnKittymon: MT: ::is gathering up all the townspeople; returns to Isaac:: Are you coming?
Quantum Catz: BM: I think he was just really tired...he's sleeping just now
Quantum Catz: IS: ::shakes his head:: We're going to go to Marquis for now...
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh. Can you take both Josh and Guy back? The rest of us can go on foot.
YarnKittymon: MT: ::frowns, nodding; softly:: That's probably just as well. Good luck, kid.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: Thanks
Quantum Catz: BM: Probably not - i already brought Guy here - and i wouldn't want to try it and end up only getting half way
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh, yes. Forgot about that... sorry... cant believe he went and asked you to do that. ::rolls her eyes::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: He was probably worried about you
Maeve Owens: MV: ::mutters:: Men... think you cant walk across the street without their assistance.
Quantum Catz: IS: If we found a cart...Eli could take all of us...otherwise he can probably only take three...
Maeve Owens: MV: I'm not sure how easy thats going to be...
YarnKittymon: : ::one of the townspeople murmurs:: The hearse is still up there, from Mr. Quinn's burial.
Quantum Catz: IS: The hearse? ::winces::
YarnKittymon: : ::the townsperson shrugs:: I think the rest of the carts are down there. ::motions to the water:: Not much fun to fetch them.
YarnKittymon: ((And it's probably not like a real hearse...it's just what they'd call the black painted wagon they use mostly for dead people ^^; ))
Maeve Owens: MV: ::grimaces as well:: Better than nothing I suppose and theres only one of us that will be laying in it. ::glances back over at Guy:: If Eli isn't up to carrying us all I can walk and find something else to do with Guy...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::glances at Eli and the horse makes a sort of nodding motion:: I think it's okay with him...he'll manage
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods and looks over at Becky:: Are you sure you're up to taking Josh back?
Quantum Catz: BM: Yeah, i'll manage - wouldn't offer otherwise ::moves over to Dolly and Josh::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles at Becky:: Thank-you - i'll feel a lot better to know he's safe in bed somewhere
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she smiles at Becky and loosens her hold on Josh so she can take him:: Thanks...
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is still unconscious, and a little warm::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::with Isaac's help, takes Josh and lowers him to the ground; smiles:: See you when you get to Marquis ::teleports to Toby's place::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is sitting at Floyd's desk, which is still there, staring at the prayer beads Becky gave him, and he almost falls out of his chair when Becky appears with an unconscious child; immediately:: Is he all right?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks at Maeve:: I guess should go find that hearse so we've got somewhere to put your friend...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Just unconscious i think, though he's a bit warm...Maeve and i kinda volunteered your place for him and his family to stay at...
Maeve Owens: MV: Yep. ::sighs:: Sorry you have to be burdened with him...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Becky, rather startled, then picks up Joshua to carry him to one of the downstairs examination rooms; quietly:: Sure. But why do they need a place to stay?
Quantum Catz: BM: Their town flooded...there's a hole in the wall or something...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: It's okay...he helped fight the monsters...i feel like i owe you and your friends for that...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: So *that's* what happened. Some people were pretty scared. ::sets Joshua down on the bed in the examining room, the same bed Lu laid on after her "miscarriage"::
Quantum Catz: BM: Yeah...and trust Maeve to find a way to get caught up in it all...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly, looking down at Joshua:: Is everyone OK?
Quantum Catz: BM: Yeah...everyone managed to get away in time...Maeve and the others are going to ride here...but it seemed like Josh was better off just being brought staight here...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles:: Well, I guess we better get a move on before its gets any later...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Joshua a moment longer:: How many other people are coming?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::whinnys and begins to walk towards the graveyard and the hearse::
Quantum Catz: BM: Isaac and his brother and sister
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, instantly crossing the room and getting to work forming another bed::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sits beside Josh, checking his forehead to make sure he hasn't got any warmer; not saying anything::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is still just a little warm, probably not dangerously so::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::finishes the bed; quietly:: Should I make another bunk here or have one of them sleep upstairs in my room, you think?
Quantum Catz: BM: I doubt they'll mind
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: I'll just put him in the storage room. Push the books aside, I guess. ::looks back at Becky; softly:: You mind keeping an eye on him while I'm making the other beds?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shakes her head:: I figured i'd stay a while and make sure he was okay
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, then, quietly, but sincerely:: Thanks for inviting them to stay here.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Well i figured you'd have the space...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, looking away:: And I could use the company. ::walks out of the room before Becky can reply::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces at Toby's words, looking sad, and then turns back to watching Josh::
