YarnKittymon: LB: ::had asked Jack to come to
her house for supper that night--though she didn't say it'd be
an event or anything, she's wearing one of her nicest dresses,
quite form-fitting and more flattering than a flapper dress, and
is wearing quite a bit of make-up,
which makes her look quite striking--though the effect is somewhat
marred by the rather anxious, almost scared expression she has
on her face as she leans against the kitchen wall, waiting for
Quantum Catz: ((does she often ask jack for supper? i.e. would he bother to dress up at all?))
YarnKittymon: ((She would've asked the same day, but saying something like she's going to cook him a nice dinner--usually when she asks him over she'd probably just say what she's cooking and ask if he wants to come))
Quantum Catz: JK: ::knocks on the door::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::answers the door, smiling to see Jack, though she seems a little pale:: Hello.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::has dressed up a bit since Libby slightly implied that this dinner was more than a normal occasion, though he's not as fancily dressed as she is and he looks just a bit shocked:: You look amazing. What's the occasion?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles at the compliment, though she still looks kind of upset; steps back:: Sometimes it's just fun to dress up. Come in.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::walks in, frowning a bit:: Are you okay?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::closes the door, looking away from Jack:: Um...supper will be ready in about half an hour...
Quantum Catz: JK: ::reaches for her arm, worriedly:: Libby...?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up at Jack; softly:: I'm not tryin' to scare you or anything...
Quantum Catz: JK: What's wrong?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::takes a deep breath, looking closely at Jack, speaking quickly:: I'm not as young as I used to be, and...I want to settle down sometime pretty soon.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::is a bit taken aback:: What...?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: I want a family someday, and I don't want to wait 'til it's too late. And Doctor Manners said...the later I had children, the more likely they'd turn out like Denny...
Quantum Catz: JK: ::repeats:: like Denny?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks down; very quietly:: She was 36 when she gave birth to him...and he's an idiot.
Quantum Catz: JK: An idiot...like a retard? ::is looking rather lost in this conversation::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods, looking up at Jack anxiously:: He's very sweet, but...I really wouldn't want...I'd want my children to lead normal lives.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::nods, rather dumbly:: I can understand that...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::takes Jack's hand; softly, looking up at him nervously:: I want to spend the rest of my life with you, Jack. But if...if you're not going to be ready...I need to...find someone who will be.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::still looks rather dumbstruck but a flash of guilt crosses his face and he pulls his hand back, turning away:: I dunno...maybe that'd be for the best
YarnKittymon: LB: ::her eyes widen, then fill with tears; softly, looking at Jack's turned back:: I...should've known...
Quantum Catz: JK: ::suddenly turns back: No...I...it's not... ::sighs:: I ain't who you want me to be - i ain't ever been
YarnKittymon: LB: ::her voice breaking:: I *want* you to be my husband...
Quantum Catz: JK: ::sighs and looks away:: Would ye want t'wait around for me if i ever got caught again?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::not moving; softly:: What are you bringing in?
Quantum Catz: JK: ::is a bit surprised at her lack of surprise:: Mainly helping with bringin in the liquor...but i got a good enough name fer myself for people to come lookin for allsorts
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shudders, and closes her eyes; quietly:: You're gonna get yourself *killed*, Jack!
Quantum Catz: JK: ::clenches his teeth:: It's what i do - it's what i've always done - i *tried*, okay?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: But you're working with *gangsters,* right? They'll...they'll set you up someday...
Quantum Catz: JK: And who do you think i worked with before? i know how to handle these people
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shudders, tears coming to her eyes again; softly:: I could wait...if you were in prison...but I don't want to lose you for good...
Quantum Catz: JK: ::looks down:: I ain't ever going to let them kill me - before...i had to stay alive for my mom and my sisters...now i guess i gotta stay alive for you...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::suddenly hugs Jack, hard, crying softly::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::hugs her back; suddenly smirks, rather weakly:: I'm sure the whoe things meant to be more romantic th'n this. Bended knee n pretty ring n all that...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles up at him, tears still on her face; softly:: I love you.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::smiles slightly, looking a bit embarrassed:: I love you too
YarnKittymon: LB: ::grins, and then pulls Jack into a kiss::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::kisses her back::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after a couple minutes, pulls back; softly:: I'd better finish supper.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::hesitates:: Are you sure you're...okay...with the smugglin stuff?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks back at Jack; softly:: I drink liquor, so I guess I can't get upset with you for bringing it in. ::smiling weakly:: And if you're locked up too long I can always get a divorce.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::laughs:: I guess so
YarnKittymon: LB: ::kisses Jack on the cheek, then goes back to attend to supper::
