YarnKittymon: : ::everyone in Marquis got rather upset when the sky turned crimson and the weather grew stormy, but the local radio has assured everyone that it's not the end of the world. More significantly, with the wall surrounding the island now breached, the whole island's radioes can pick up dozens of stations they weren't able to before, which is rather exciting for people used to having just one::
YarnKittymon: : ::Madeline, the producer at the Marquis radio station, doesn't seem particularly concerned by the new competition, but she seeks out Jack early the next morning::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::is having his breakfast in the inn::
YarnKittymon: : ::Madeline approaches Jack with a smile:: May I sit down?
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shrugs:: Sure
Quantum Catz: ((why is he always being approached by women? ;)))
YarnKittymon: ((He has that nice body, you know. Maybe it's a kinda Johnny Depp thing. :D ))
YarnKittymon: : ::Madeline smiles at him, whispering:: I was wondering if you'd be interested in helping me with something.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::smiles back, softly:: And what would that be?
YarnKittymon: : ::Madeline whispers more quietly:: Broadcasting equipment.
Quantum Catz: JK: Not much point to that if they fix the wall...
YarnKittymon: : ::Madeline smiles:: Not much point if they *don't* fix the wall, but they're already working on it. I can bring some of the stuff in under the guise of replacing broken equipment for the station, but not all of it.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shrugs:: I think i can manage that...how much equipment we talking about?
YarnKittymon: : ::Madeline grins:: I'd have to ask the engineer, but it shouldn't be all that much, except for the batteries. The whole proposition's risky, but with some luck it'll work.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shrugs:: Nothing like a bit of a risk to get your blood pumping
YarnKittymon: : ::softly:: Not just on *your* side. I'm betting we can get it built and running before anyone finds out, and that the public will protest if the government tries to shut us down. But it's worth it, I think.
Quantum Catz: JK: Doesn't bother me - not much of a radio fan myself
YarnKittymon: : ::smiles:: That's fine. ::stands up:: I'll be in touch once I have all the details worked out. I just wanted to see if it could be done.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::nods:: Alright
YarnKittymon: : Then I'll leave you to your breakfast. I have work to do anyway. ::leaves the bar::
YarnKittymon: : ::back at Toby's new residence, Joshua still hasn't woken, though his slight fever has fallen a bit::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::has stayed near him ever since he reached Marquis::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::puts a hand on Isaac's shoulder; softly, though it's not the first time he's suggested it:: You should go out and get some air, at least.
Quantum Catz: IS: I don't want to leave him
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: He's not gonna die, Isaac. It sounds like he just got drained.
Quantum Catz: IS: I know...but i guess i really won't believe it till he's awake
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods:: Can I get you something, at least?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::shakes his head:: No, i'm fine ::takes Josh's hand, not for the first time, and tries to heal josh a bit, in the hope that it'll wake him up::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::stirs slightly, and his eyes almost look ready to flutter open, but he sinks back into the pillow::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a knock on the door::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::goes to answer the door, cursing loudly when he does so::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks towards the door, although he doesn't want to go through in case he's interupting something::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::yells out from the front room:: Isaac, get out here!
Quantum Catz: IS: ::stands up and runs through:: What is it?
YarnKittymon: : ::a young man from town has carried his sister into the office and set her on the floor; she's bleeding badly from the side of her head, where she was kicked by a horse::
Quantum Catz: IS: Oh no... ::crouches down beside her and tries to heal her without even thinking::
YarnKittymon: : ::the bleeding stops, and the wound heals; the girl opens her eyes, a bewildered expression on her face::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles slightly at her:: You should be okay now...
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl slowly smiles, and her brother is just amazed; he instantly reaches into his money pouch:: How much do you want?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::shakes his head:: No...it's okay...
YarnKittymon: : ::the brother shakes his head, looking up at Isaac:: Please. You did more than a doctor could've--and Toby would've charged.
Quantum Catz: ((would he have charged people in saxton?))
YarnKittymon: ((No, but they also would've looked out for his family a bit))
Quantum Catz: IS: ::glances at Toby, rather lost, since he's never charged anyone before:: I...really...it's okay...i just couldn't leave her there...
YarnKittymon: TY: Of course you couldn't, but it doesn't hurt to take *something* for doing someone a favor.
YarnKittymon: : ::the brother nods:: It won't put us out, honestly.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::shakes his head:: I ...wouldn't know what to charge...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks, forming a glass container:: We'll just set up a tip jar.
Quantum Catz: IS: Okay...i guess...i'd better get back to Josh though
YarnKittymon: : ::the sister gets to her feet and hugs Isaac:: Thank you.
YarnKittymon: : ::the brother nods silently::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::approaches the doors to the doctor's office and peeks in::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: That's okay
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes the coins the brother offers him, dropping them into the jar where they sound against its glass walls::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::when no one pays any attention she slips in quietly and stands against the wall where she patiently waits for their company to leave::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::cleans the blood off the girl's head for free, and then the two leave; glances up at Maeve:: Hey.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles:: Hi... I was just coming by to see how Josh was doing.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: He still hasn't woken up...
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh. ::looking a bit worried::
YarnKittymon: TY: But he's just resting. It's OK.
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh, well, thats good then I guess.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: I'll be a lot happier when he wakes up and says he feels all better though
YarnKittymon: JH: ::from the bedroom, calls softly:: Isaac?
Quantum Catz: IS: Josh? ::runs through to see him::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::hasn't sat up, but his eyes are open, and he grins when he sees Isaac run in::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she follows him but hangs back at the doorway to the room::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::pulls Josh into a tight hug:: Thank God
YarnKittymon: JH: ::still quietly:: Mommy said to thank you.
Quantum Catz: IS: Mom?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: I thought...thought I was gonna die...but then Mommy was there...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::was watching the scene but now she feels more like she's ease dropping so she backs out of the doorway not wanting to intrude on a private family moment::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::isn't really sure if he believes that his mother was there but he smiles:: Well, i'm glad you're back with me now...and i'm glad Mom's happy too..
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is still back in the waiting room, smiles slightly at Maeve:: I told you.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: She said she was whole again, and she said she loved us.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Yep, well, I'm glad he's finally awake.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::remembers the ghost-like being:: I'm glad
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods:: I felt awful for Isaac.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::whispers:: I'm so tired.
Quantum Catz: IS: It's okay...you can go back to sleep if you want
Maeve Owens: MV: ::softly:: Yeah.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::closes his eyes again, and drops off into sleep::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles, glad to know that his brother really is okay::
Maeve Owens: MV: I should probably get going. I'll see ya later Toby.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: Bye.
Maeve Owens: MV: Bye. ::she leaves::

YarnKittymon: GU: ::is still rather weak and tired from his adventure, and hasn't left his bed more than once or twice since he's been there::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::knocks on Guy's door::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::doesn't answer, as he's still in his bedroom, but the door is unlocked::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she opens the door and peeks her head in:: Guy?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::from the bedroom:: I'm in here, Maeve.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she enters, closing the door behind and then heads towards his bedroom:: Hey...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks completely exhausted; softly:: How are you?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles:: Oh, I'm fine. You look exhausted though.
YarnKittymon: GU: I am. That monster got me pretty good.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Yeah... sorry I couldn't lure her away quicker... It doesn't take them long to drain most of your energy. I'm just glad they're all gone now.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: All three?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns:: Yes, I suppose all three of them are gone. I mean there was no sign of the third one. Actually, I kind of forgot about her...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: Are you all right?
Maeve Owens: MV: Yes, of course. Why wouldn't I be? I wasn't drained completely like you were.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::after a long pause:: But it's the same way Mr. Quinn was killed.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes drop to the floor; softly:: Yep.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks at Maeve with a rather troubled expression, and then closes his eyes::
Maeve Owens: MV: What? Were you afraid you'd end up like Donald or something?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::opens his eyes; sharply:: I am not afraid!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes widen:: Okay, sorry... then what has you so troubled?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::shakes his head, then, softly:: I'm sorry you lost him.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes shift back to the floor, hiding any pain that may be lurking in her gaze and she nods::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::after a very long pause:: How do you feel about me?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her head jerks up to look at him, completely caught off guard by his question and it takes her a few moments to formulate a response:: Um, well, I...we have a good time... ::frowns:: Thats a little forward dont you think?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: How would you feel if I left you?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her frown deepens:: What are you trying to get at here?
YarnKittymon: GU: I don't know, Maeve.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head, still frowning:: Maybe I should let you get some rest. We can talk later.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: It's a terrible way to die.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sadly:: Yes, it is. But you're going to get better... Donald on the other hand, well, he was sick to begin with.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks rather pale:: I'm not *dying,* Maeve.
Maeve Owens: MV: I know that... just making sure *you* knew that. ::looks rather confused about Guy's state of mind at the moment::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::closes his eyes; softly:: I didn't mean for it to happen.
Maeve Owens: MV: Didn't mean for what to happen?
YarnKittymon: GU: For him to die. I did mean it, but not...
Maeve Owens: MV: What?
YarnKittymon: GU: Mr. Quinn.
Maeve Owens: MV: I dont quite understand what you're trying to say... why would you even want him dead let alone be responsible for what happened...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: Then I'll stop talking. Forgive me.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowning:: Yeah, as I said before I should probably let you get some rest. I'll talk to you when you're feeling better.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::smiles weakly:: I'll take you on my next case, OK?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Sure.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: Then I'll just go back to sleep now.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods and then leaves the room.::
