~Monday, June 20, 1932~

YarnKittymon: : ::Libby left her shoppe in the care of Maeve, simply asking her not to burn it down while she's on her honeymoon...but as Maeve unlocks the door when she makes it to work, a wastebasket that was empty last night has been stuffed with newspapers and is now merrily ablaze; some of the garments nearby have been scorched, but nothing else has caught yet::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she visibly pales at the sight of the flames, her heart plumetting to the floor and all she can think is that Libby is definitely going to kill her. She pulls the waist basket away from anything flammable, knowing the fire can't hurt her. She then tries to smother the flames attacking the other garments::
YarnKittymon: : ::the fire seems to falter like any normal fire would, though the flames in the wastebasket suddenly leap higher, glancing the wooden ceiling, and throwing off sparks that burn a couple tiny holes in Maeve's blouse::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::rushes into the back to find a bucket or a hose, or something to fill up water with:: Libby's gonna kill me! ::her hearts racing and she can barely think clearly just sure the whole store is going to burn to the ground::
YarnKittymon: : ::the back room does have a bucket, and there's a faucet in a small bathroom in the room adjoining the back room::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she grabs the bucket and fills it with water. She returns to the front and dumps the water on the burning waist can::
YarnKittymon: : ::the flames are doused, leaving smouldering newspapers, but suddenly, near the entrance door, a rack of sweaters catches on fire; Maeve thinks she hears a curse as the flaming rack topples to the ground::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her mouth drops open:: What in the bloody hell is going on? ::rushes back for more water and when she returns she throws it on the burning clothes:: Where is my sister when you really need her! ::she looks up, tearing slightly, mumbles:: sorry. ::she looks around, looking completely lost::
YarnKittymon: : ::the flames on the sweaters are doused as well, but a couple of the skirts near the wastebasket are charred, and the whole rack of sweaters are a total loss; the floor beneath them is charred, and the whole shop smells strongly of smoke::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::is it overwhelmed to do anything but stand there and wait for something else to catch on fire. She coughs a little, the smoke getting to her::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::is walking down the road, an annoyed, almost dangerous, look in his eyes; he stops short in front of Libby's shoppe, looking inside, with a frown:: Maeve?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks over at the door; a little dazed:: Harry?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::walks inside, looking around warily:: What happened here?
Maeve Owens: MV: I dont know. ::frowns:: The waist can was on fire when I unlocked the doors. And I unlocked them... unless the back door is unlocked... ::shakily, she starts to move towards the back::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::looks around silently, following Maeve::
YarnKittymon: : ::the back door is locked, just as Maeve left it::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowning, she wraps her arms around herself tightly and walks back to the front once again, looking at the mess around her and wondering how to fix it before Libby gets back::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::slowly:: You don't have any idea who could've done it?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head, not wanting to mention she heard voices less he think her mad::
Maeve Owens: MV; ::murmers:: Mabye Toby can fix it. ::cringes::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods:: I'm sure he can. You're lucky Libby's out of town...if my lady had been maybe she wouldn't've thrown me out.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: What did you do? ::starts cleaning up what she can, and putting off asking Toby, feeling guilty that this happened on her watch::
YarnKittymon: HR: Nothing at all, but she heard this stupid old lady saying something or other about me, and the next thing you know her bakery's missing fifty dollars, and guess who the blame falls on? ::shrugs::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns:: Some old lady? How'd she find out?
YarnKittymon: HR: She might've been making it up, for all I know, or maybe she spied on the two of us. Whatever the reason, if I don't find the real thief, and soon, I'd probably better get out of Marquis for a while.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes widen:: You're going to find the *real* thief? ::frowns:: Uh, Harry, what do you plan to do here in the long run anyway?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shrugs:: Marquis is nearly as big as Gate Town, and I've grown to like Ruby pretty well. I'm not so worried about money anymore.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Really now? That's interesting. ::looks at the mess and sighs:: I guess theres no putting this off. I'm going to have to see if Toby will help me. ::pouts::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::looks around, frowning again:: You don't think this could be the work of the same person, do you?
Maeve Owens: MV: Maybe. ::frowns and goes over to check the cash register::
YarnKittymon: : ::the register doesn't appear to have been touched::
Maeve Owens: MV: Well, the firestarter didn't mess with the register so why would they steal from the bakery but burn down Libby's store?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shrugs:: Maybe revenge, I guess.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns:: I dont see how anyone would want revenge against Libby... I dont know her to have any enemies anyway... ::she bites her lip, looking at Harry like she is begging him not to voice that it was meant for her::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::looks at Maeve; then, slowly:: You didn't have *any* other clues of who it might've been? Didn't see or hear anything?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she looks over to the sweater rack then heads towards it, her steps deliberate as she goes over to inspect the area::
YarnKittymon: YarnKittymon rolled 2 6-sided dice: 3 4
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a matchbook laying under the sweater rack, half a dozen matches taken from it; it lists the name and address of a club in Los Angeles::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::mutters:: great, the matches *strike* again. ::she looks around some more, thinking that maybe she was mad for hearing that voice::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's nothing at all out of the ordinary to be seen; the unburned newspapers at the bottom of the basket are all a couple weeks old::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::picks up the matchbook, and murmurs several curses, at least one of which Maeve hasn't heard since she was enslaved by those sailors::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sighs, picking up the matchbook and then walks over to have a closer look at the articles::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes widen and she swallows hard. Schooling her expression she glances at him:: What? ::she looks away, going over to get a closer look at the articles::
YarnKittymon: : ::there doesn't seem to be anything of particular interest in the articles, though she does spot a headline that catches her eye in a balled-up piece near the bottom--"POWERS OUT," it reads, the top headline::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::just mutters one word:: Penny.
Maeve Owens: MV: Penny? ::frowns:: She's not... invisible is she? Cause I thought I heard something over here earlier... ::turns around, looking a little nervous::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::looks at Maeve for a moment, then kicks the wall, letting loose with all the words he'd held back earlier::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sharply:: Harry! ::looks a little perplexed::
YarnKittymon: HR: Completely invisible when she wants to be, Maeve. ::curses:: How are we going to deal with *her*?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::thinks about how much damage the woman has done and could still do in her life and wants to cry:: I dont know...
YarnKittymon: HR: ::in a low voice:: We'll think of *something*. We have to.
Maeve Owens: MV: So where do we start? What does she hope to accomplish by burning down *Libby's* store?
YarnKittymon: HR: It's not like she spent much time in Marquis...she might've just been in Saturday and assumed you own the place, that "Libby's" is just a witty name for it.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head:: And I promised Libby I wasn't going to burn the place down.
YarnKittymon: HR: :: moves towards the door:: Come on; let's lock up and get your friend to fix everything. If she's still in here, we lock her in, and if not, we'll at least be locking her out.
Maeve Owens: MV: Are you sure she cant pass through walls? Unless I locked her in yesterday... the trash can was on fire before I opened the doors this morning.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shakes his head:: I don't *think* she can, but she could've come in here last night and waited until morning. Probably snuck out as soon as you opened the door for her.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Then she has a lot more patience than me. And this floor cant be that comfortable to sleep on. ::starts to head out the door:: I dont feel good about leaving the place unguarded either. ::frowns::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shrugs:: Fine. I'll stay here and wait, if that'll make you happy.
Maeve Owens: MV: Maybe you could go get him... ::smiles uneasily but a little hopefull::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shrugs again:: Sure, if you like. But be careful...if she just wants to kill us, she'd have both our throats slit before we could move, hm? ::walks off::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::mutters:: Great. ::continues to clean up some things, glad she doesnt have to ask Toby directly::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shows up a couple minutes later, wearing a short-sleeved button-down shirt that's slightly rumpled; he opens the door and looks around inside, scowling, and gets to work re-forming the sweaters without a word::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::walks over slowly:: Uh, hi Toby. Thanks for coming... I can, um, pay you for your trouble... I'll just have to go ::she pauses, choosing her words carefully so Penny wont figure out where the money is:: get money from... somewhere.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head quickly:: Of course not. This isn't your fault, and I'd just as soon get this fixed as quick as I can so no one can get the idea you had anything to do with it. ::finishes the rack and its sweaters, though he's done a pretty poor job on the latter, planning to come back to them later; he works on the floor next::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::winces; softly:: Thanks.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Harry told me a little about it. How are you going to stop her?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head:: I dont know. ::half joking:: At this rate it might just be better if I packed up and moved away.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::leans close to Maeve; softly:: She'll be back for Jack, won't she?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::softly:: Guess him and Libby might want to take an extended vacation then. ::shrugs:: Tell me where I am suppose to start Toby because I have no clue. If she wants us dead... well... ::shrugs helplessly::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::melting the charred newspapers and ash out of the wastebasket:: If we knew where she was, we could get her surrounded.
Maeve Owens: MV: How would you find her? Throw blankets around? Throw powder everywhere?
YarnKittymon: TY: Something like that, I guess. Problem is she could be anywhere in town, or how many miles away by now. We wouldn't know where to start.
Maeve Owens: MV: Well, if all she is doing is playing pranks then we wait and use Jack for bait.
YarnKittymon: TY: And if she's not? ::stops still in the middle of polishing the wastebasket, looking straight ahead:: If she's not...and she wants to get back at Isaac...
Maeve Owens: MV: We should go warn him too. Wheres Harry?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::is standing outside, his eyes and ears open, but he bows to them from the doorway:: At your service.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::gets up without a word and pushes past Harry, running to Isaac's house, and knocking on the door:: Hey! Isaac! Are you OK?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::opens the door:: Toby? Whats wrong?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looking around, barely in control of himself:: Where are your brothers? Is everything OK?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::nods:: Isaac and Eli have gone out. Josh is upstairs I guess.
YarnKittymon: TY: Where are Isaac and Eli? ::quickly:: Wait; don't say it. ::goes upstairs to look for Josh::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::looking puzzled, she closes the door and follows Toby::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::checks Josh's room first; the boy is in bed, still fast asleep, an adventure book lying face-down on the table by his bed::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::goes over to Josh and shakes him:: Hey; wake up.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::opens his eyes, yawning deeply, then sits up, looking a little annoyed:: Why didn't anyone wake me?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::from the doorway, looking rather scared:: Toby, whats going on?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Josh and then Dolly, briefly considering how each of them could help, but shakes his head, definitely not wanting to get either of them involved:: You two stay put today, all right? Make sure the doors are locked.
Maeve Owens: DK: Why? Whats wrong Toby? Is Isaac in trouble?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: He should be safe; we'll get this taken care of before he comes back. ::smiles weakly at Dolly and Joshua:: So don't worry.
Maeve Owens: DK: Okay. ::still looks worried::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::heads for the bedroom door:: I'm sorry to wake you up, Josh.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::rather reproachfully:: Dolly or Isaac should've.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::looks at Josh, shrugging:: Sorry.... ::glances over at Toby, not wanting to be left alone now::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Dolly, rather sorry:: I'll let you know when we've got the problem taken care of, OK? You know I wouldn't leave you here if I didn't think it was safe?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she nods, smiling weakly:: Well, be careful then, I guess.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, smiling:: Thanks. See you later, Dolly, Josh. ::goes back out of the house, making sure Dolly locks the door behind him, then looks around for Maeve and Harry::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::is reluctant to leave Libby's shop unguarded and is still there, although she is kind of worried about her own home::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::is by Maeve's side, asking, quietly:: There aren't any freaks around here who can sense people's presence or anything, is there? Someone who can tell where people are?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::thinks of Becky but then shakes her head no, not willing to get her involved::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::then after a moment; quickly:: Guy! ::frowns:: but I dont know where he is or if he would even help me.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: There's no way he'd want you dead, is there? Put out a classified on the radio, just ask him to come back to Marquis. I'll bet he will.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head; smirking:: No, or he would have let that detective have me. ::sighs:: That will take to long anyway.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shrugs:: Has he actually moved out yet? Maybe he's still in that room of his.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shrugs:: I dont know. He wont be happy to see me and I'm not leaving Libby's store unguarded. I did overnight and look what happened!
YarnKittymon: TY: I'll stand here and watch it. ::stretches his fingers, smirking:: Believe me; if anything catches on fire I'm running right after whoever set it...and I'm sure I'll get a handful of her. Don't think she'll enjoy it much, though.
Maeve Owens: MV: But Toby, you wont be able to see her.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: I'll just reach out with both arms; I'll have to grab her eventually.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sighs:: Fine. Should Harry go guard Isaac's place while I get Guy? If he is, indeed, still around?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks around, catching sight of Harry, who's pacing the street, keeping a lookout:: Go ask him to, please; I'd feel better.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Okay, see you in a bit. ::walks over to Harry:: Hey, can you go stand guard at Isaac's? Make sure nothing happens over there?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods:: Sure. ::as he turns to go, his suit coat folds in just the right way to expose the grip of a gun tucked into a holster under his arm::
Maeve Owens: ((now whats the rule on guns? NO ONE can use them right? now that the wall is back up?))
YarnKittymon: ((Guns have always been that if you use them, you have (in dice roll terms) a 1/6 shot of it working OK, a 1/6 shot of it blowing up on you, and a 4/6 shot of it just jamming to a varying degree. Michael was immune to the gun magic because he was immune to all magic, and Jack just got INCREDIBLY lucky))
Maeve Owens: MV: Uh Harry, ::points to the gun:; You know the likeliness of you using that and getting it to work without killing you is slim to none right?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::looks at Maeve with a glint in his eyes:: Do I tell you how to do your job? ::walks past her and towards Isaac's house::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::rolls her eyes, sighing and then walks off to find Guy, and not liking it one bit.::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::is still living in the room he's rented in Marquis, until the end of the month, at any rate; right now he's inside, sitting at his table, going over some offical-looking documents, some typed and some hand-written::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::stands in front of his door for several minutes trying to figure out what to say and getting up the courage to knock before finally forcing herself to do so::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::opens the door and looks Maeve up and down; then, softly:: How can I help you now?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::fidgets:: I hate to ask you this but we've got a small problem. You see, theres this woman and she's kind of invisible and she wants revenge against Harry, Jack, Isaac and me for... messing up her evil plans I guess... she almost burnt down Libby's store.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::with a bit of an edge to his voice:: I've already got two cases, Maeve; I can't just drop them to try to bring in a woman I can't even see.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles sweetly at him:: Well, if you could perhaps just tell me where she is...
YarnKittymon: GU: I've never met her; that's not going to be very easy. But I can try...for five gold.
Maeve Owens: ((is that a little expensive? ))
((That's probably something like $5-$7 US dollars; at the time that'd be something around a day's wages, maybe a touch more))
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks a little surprised when he says that but quickly nods to cover it up, reaching into her pocket and handing him five coins:: Fine. Do you need something of hers? Harry has the matches she used.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::pockets the money, grabbing his hat from his hat-rack as he leaves his room, locking it behind him:: That would help quite a bit, actually. Where is he?
Maeve Owens: MV: In font of Isaac's house.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods, walking that way as he arranges his hat; he takes the matches from Harry with just a few words and then leans against the walls of the house, his eyes closed, holding the matchbook tightly, and concentrating::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::follows behind him, then waits patiently::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::opens his eyes, looking straight ahead of him:: The tavern. ::he starts running towards the tavern Jack works at without saying a word::
Maeve Owens: MV: Stay here Harry, in case she we lose her and she comes here? Please? ::turns to follow guy::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shakes his head, smirking at Maeve, and waits until she's several yards away, then follows at a distance::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::makes it to the tavern, and busts inside, brandishing an official-looking badge:: This is a raid! Liquor's illegal, remember? Get outta here before I arrest the lot of you!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::follows him inside, keeping her eyes open for anything out of place::
YarnKittymon: : ::everyone edges away from their drinks, huddling towards the walls::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks at them angrily:: You heard me. Get out of here! ::yells again until the people, almost as if of one accord, run for the door::
YarnKittymon: : ::nothing seems strange or out of place inside, but Guy nods silently to Maeve, closing his eyes again::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::stays silent, looking around still::
YarnKittymon: : ::very suddenly, Maeve feels a terrible pain in her side, as a butcher knife from the kitchen drives itself in deep::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she gasps as the pain sucks the breath from her lungs, dazedly she looks down at the knife before her legs give out on her and she crumples to the floor::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::reaches the doorway and sees the blood glinting on the knife; in a matter of moments he's drawn his gun, and he fires::
YarnKittymon: YarnKittymon rolled 2 6-sided dice: 6 2
YarnKittymon: : ::Harry's gun jams, and he curses, letting it fall to the ground as he springs ahead, pulling a knife and trying to find Penny::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::sees Maeve and curses, but has the good sense to run back behind Penny and close the door, the only exit besides a closed window::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::is trying very hard not to have flashbacks of Seth as she struggles to get back to her feet despite the pain::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks at Harry calmly:: She can't get us both at once. Stay together. ::draws a knife from his pocket, wishing he had his crossbow::
YarnKittymon: : ::the red blood on Penny's knife glints faintly in the low light of the tavern; Guy and Harry both see it, and slowly approach::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::pale and wincing from the pain in her side, she abondones the idea to stand up, instead she props herslf up against a chair. She sees the knife again and a little bit angry that its her blood on it she forms a fireball and throws it at it::
YarnKittymon: : ::from the scream, it's pretty clear Maeve has made contact; the flames leap up around what's definitely a human figure, which drops the knife and starts rolling on the ground, trying to smother the flames::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks; weakly:: Pay back.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::snaps at Harry:: Go get Toby! ::runs forward to Maeve without a word; not spying any napkins or towels nearby, he swiftly unbuttons his shirt::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::still watching Penny, just in case she is still mobile::
YarnKittymon: PY: ::is more or less visible at this point, but her entire body, from her fedora to her shoes, is scorched; most of her clothes have burned at least part of the way through, and her flesh is bright red::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::gets his shirt off and presses it over Maeve's wound; softly:: Harry's gone to get help. Don't worry.
YarnKittymon: PY: ::is whimpering softly at the pain::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::whimpers a little when he presses down, she looks over at Penny::: Guess I didn't learn my lesson after all.
YarnKittymon: PY: ::still whimpering; she closes her eyes, apparently concentrating, but the only part of her body that disappears is the palm of her hand, which was sheltered from the flames, being clenched around the knife when she was burned::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::in a more detached voice:: Maeve, don't move, or you'll make things worse.
Maeve Owens: MV: what? ::glances down, then cringes and looks away::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::comes through the door and immediately pushes Guy aside, completely ignoring Penny; he forces Maeve to lay down flat and then gets to work healing her wound; it's a rather deep wound, so he has to press his fingers in deeply, and the whole thing hurts worse than the initial stabbing::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she squeezes her eyes shut, the scream never making it out of her throat through all the pain. She attempts to push Toby's fingers away::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::gets pushed away by Maeve; frustrated, he calls for Guy:: Hold her down, will you? ::tries again as Guy holds Maeve's wrists, Toby trying to tell Maeve it'll be all right::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::and now the only thing registering through the pain is that someone is holding her down and hurting her which makes her struggle even more::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::gets pushed aside by Maeve, so violently his hand flies up and hits him in the nose; he looks up warily at the door--for whatever reason, no guards have shown up yet--and then he slips his hand under Maeve's neck, instantly killing her::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::stares in shock as Maeve goes cold in front of him::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::angrily:: Just fix her up!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::does so, not sure if Guy plans to kill him next, or what::
YarnKittymon: : ::when the wound's fixed--and Maeve's clothes--Guy gently touches the back of Maeve's neck, bringing her back to life::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes snap open and she looks between the two of them, not saying anything but has a puzzled look on her face::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::cleans the blood off of his hands, looking at Maeve; softly:: Are you...are you all right? What day is it?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::a little bit dazed; softly:: Monday?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::stands up, going to the kitchen to wash his hands:: No need to tell anyone about this, is there?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::attempts to sit up; mutters:: nope. Libby'd kill me. ::winces::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Isaac probably would, too, if he finds out all the danger you went into without him. ::weakly:: And I'd half a mind to kill you too, for not letting me have a piece of the action...but a certain man beat me to it.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::gives him a puzzled look:: what are you babbling about?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Guy coldly, then back at Maeve; softly:: What's the last thing you remember?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::comes back to the tavern, accompanied by a couple guards, who seem rather suspicious of him; they survey the scene in definite surprise::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: Someone was holding me down and there was a lot of pain.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly, trying to help Maeve stand:: Come on; let's get you back home.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::lets him help her up::
YarnKittymon: : ::one of the guards stands in the doorway:: Hold it here. We need to ask what's happened.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::pales considerably, glances over at Penny and then almost faints; groans:: not again...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::comes forward, his hands clean; quietly:: That woman was the partner of the man who took over the radio here in Marquis--together they're responsible for at least ten reported deaths of variants, and several at the radio stations as well. She has the power to turn invisible at will, though I'm not sure she still has that ability, given most of her skin has burned. I say she needs to be imprisoned, and we'll just wait and see if she lives long enough to stand trial.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::holds her breath, waiting to see what they are going to say::
YarnKittymon: : ::the expression on the face of the guard standing in the doorway softens just a little, and the other guard looks Penny over, an expression of disgust on his face:: I wish she *weren't* alive. C'mon, Terr; let's get her to jail. Probably ship her off to Gate Town tomorrow.
YarnKittymon: : ::the other guard timidly asks:: Shouldn't she see a doctor?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::visibly relieved::
YarnKittymon: : ::the first guard laughs:: Unfortunately the doctor's not in. I guess we could send her off to Gate Town tonight; they have a burn center there. ::he sees Toby's hesitance to come forward and smirks, then grabs Penny roughly by the wrists and, with the help of his partner, hauls her out::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::whispers to Toby:: How mad do you think she is right now? Mad enough to pay a visit in two years?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::very softly:: I'd bet on it, if I thought she'd live that long.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: Thats good, I can go back to believing everythings changed so much it isnt going to happen. ::smiles weakly then moves to leave::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::runs a hand through his hair, exhaling slowly:: I'm gonna clean up here, then get back to Libby's, OK? I'll have it all fixed before tonight.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Thanks. I'll walk over there with you... dont know how much I'll be able to do, maybe try and get the smell of smoke out... somehow. ::frowns::
YarnKittymon: TY: I'm not sure *I* can do that. ::stops, his expression brightening considerably:: Go get Dolly and Josh, would you? I promised I'd tell them when everything was all right, and Josh'll be a big help.
Maeve Owens: MV: Okay. ::quickly leaves and heads to Isaac's::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is peering out of the front window when he sees Maeve coming, and he almost runs to unlock the door for her, but thinks better of it, remembering Toby's warning, and waits for the knock::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::knocks on the door::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::through the door:: Is everything OK? Toby told us not to open the door.
Maeve Owens: MV: Everythings fine. Actually we need your help if you and Dolly want to come over to Libby's shop.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::unlocks the door and opens it for Maeve, and then goes tearing through the house to ask Dolly if she'll come with them to Libby's::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::comes down the stairs:: Okay, okay. I'm coming.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::smiles up at Maeve:: What do you need?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles back wearily:: For you to keep a secret and help us get rid of a certain smell lingering in Libby's shop.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks more excited...though sleeping until ten and then being trapped in the house for a bit's probably given him some pent-up energy:: What kind of secret?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs a little and turns to walk towards Libby's:: You cant tell anyone about what happened today cause Libby might get a little upset.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods, putting his hand on his heart:: Okay.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles again, shaking her head::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::follows along behind them::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is already back at Libby's shoppe, looking a bit on the tired side already, but still working to clean up the mess::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: I appreciate you wanting to get this done, but theres no need to wear yourself out.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she says, as she comes through the door::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiling weakly at Maeve:: But what if she comes back early?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Well, if you get it all done but you pass out on the floor and I cant move you... what good is that?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still working:: But what if a customer comes in? Did you ask Josh already?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sighs:: Figured I'd have to close down for the day. ::glances over her shoulder:: And yes I did. ::smiles at Josh::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::sniffs, and quickly decides that all the clothes smell of smoke:: I'll try. ::lightly touches one of the sweaters Toby made, then holds it out to Maeve::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Dolly, would you bring that stepladder over here so I can reach the ceiling?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::doesnt know what he wants her to do with it but she takes it::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looking at Maeve expectantly:: Does it smell OK?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she nods and quickly pulls the stepladder over::
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh. ::sniffs it::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::climbs up to get the appearance of smoke out of the ceiling, then waits, watching Josh::
YarnKittymon: : ::it smells like line-dried laundry::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles and nods:: Yep, smells nice and fresh.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::cheerfully gets to work on the rest of the clothes, asking for Maeve to reach the higher articles for him::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she does so, the events prior to this still playing through her mind and what Toby meant earlier about a certain gentlemen beating him to it finally registers; in total disbelief she mutters:: Guy killed me... ::just pops out randomely and she covers her mouth her eyes darting to the side to look at Toby:::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks blankly at Maeve, a little worried::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Maeve for a moment, then away::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::coughs, looking a little nervous and then quickly holds up another shirt for Josh::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::takes the shirt; softly:: You're alive now.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::bites her lower lip for a second; then quietly:: yeah. ::quickly, trying to erase the worry:: wasn't his fault... wasn't his intention... to keep me that way I mean. ::she frowns, then glances over at Toby again::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::gets back to work, his hand shaking just a little::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::quietly:: You didn't go do something dangerous again, did you?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::notices Toby's hand shaking and sighs:: Toby, would you stop before you drop? ::she glances over at Josh:: No, everythings fine. :::holds up another shirt hoping he'll focuss on that instead::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sits down on the stepladder to rest a bit::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::working on the shirt:: Then who burned Libby's shop?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::quietly observing the situation::
Maeve Owens: MV: A woman that me, Isaac, and Jack met on our trip to catch those responsible for the mess at the towers. She didn't like the fact that we spoiled her big plan I guess and she came back for revenge. ::shrugs::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::cringes, and then drops the shirt, hugging Maeve tight::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::winces at the look on his face and returns the hug:: Everythings fine and the woman is gone for good.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::still hugging Maeve:: Did someone kill her?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns;: Uh, no, they took her away.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::peers down at Toby:: Do you want me to get you anything?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods, picking up the shirt, still looking rather dazed::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles weakly at Dolly:: A glass of water would be great.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she nods, and after Maeve tells her where she can find some cups she scampers off to get Toby some water::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles weakly:: Sorry Josh, I didn't mean to scary but honestly its nothing and its over with. Great job on the shirts by the way.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::thanks Dolly and takes the water, drinking it all at one go::
YarnKittymon: JH: The walls smell like smoke too.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::softly:: Yeah, I know. Think you can handle that too?
YarnKittymon: JH: If someone lifts me high enough.
Maeve Owens: MV: You can climb onto my shoulders and we can see if that will work?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::gives it a try, and he can just reach the ceiling:: I'm not too heavy?
Maeve Owens: MV: Not yet... ::jokingly:: but hopefully this wont take all day.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::gets the high parts of the walls first, and then the ceiling, trying to keep still so as not to make Maeve fall::
YarnKittymon: YarnKittymon rolled 2 6-sided dice: 4 3
Maeve Owens: DK: ::watches them carefully, holding her breath::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::he leans too far the wrong way and she attempts maintain her balance but she overcorrects herself and she falls, trying her best to keep Josh from getting hurt::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::yells a little as he hits his shoulder pretty hard, but he instantly gets to his feet looks at Maeve, asking:: Are you all right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::lightly:: A little bruised perhaps but otherwise okay. ::she looks him over, trying to determined if he was hurt:: How about you?
YarnKittymon: YarnKittymon rolled 2 6-sided dice: 2 3
Maeve Owens: DK: ::had held her breath when she saw them fall and now rushes over to her brother::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::moves his arm around in its socket, not cringing at all:: I'm fine.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I can help you if you need it.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sighs in relief::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::still looking a little worriedly at her brother; softly:: Are you sure you're okay?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods:: Yeah.
YarnKittymon: TY: Why don't you stay on the ground for a while, Josh. You still have plenty of work to do down here.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::doesnt move from her spot on the floor feeling rather guilty and completely useless::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::silently gathers a few more pieces of clothing for Josh, then asks Maeve:: Are you sure you're OK? And I don't just mean the fall.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she looks at him for a moment, swallows hard and then quickly glances away; mutters::: I'm fine. ::whichs is her way of saying I dont want to talk about it. She slowly gets to her feet::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I'll watch the shop if you need some time. I think it's clean enough to open again.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::insistantly:: I'm fine... I promised Libby I would look after things and I'm going to even if it kills me.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: But you remember it kinda did already.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::doesnt know how to react to that so she looks away, and busies herself with straightning some clothes that may or may not need straightening::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a knock on the door, and then Harry comes in, looking around:: Good work.
Maeve Owens: MV: Hey, where've you been?
YarnKittymon: HR: I got a couple friends among the guards; I was just trying to see what they're gonna do with our friend Penny. ::shrugs:: I think the $50 got incinerated.
Maeve Owens: MV: You made friends with the guards?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shrugs:: A little gift here, a little heroism there...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Uh-huh... and a bribe to look the other way?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shakes his head quickly:: Don't be silly. Anyway, they're taking Penny now, since she's so sick.
Maeve Owens: MV: Well, with you one can never tell. ::shrugs:: Do they say if they think she is going to make it?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shrugs:: I'd guess not. Good riddance.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::doesnt know whether or not she should share his "enthusiasm" since most things tend to come back and haunt her::
YarnKittymon: HR: Anyway, I don't think it's anything you need to worry about. The radio's gonna take it easy on the story, not mention any fire.
Maeve Owens: MV: Thats good... as long as Libby and Jack cant make any connections everything should be just fine. ::still looks a little uneasy::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::completely seriously:: What do we have to not tell them?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::glances over at Toby, hoping he'll answer::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shrugs:: No one in town knows someone tried to burn down her shop. Don't tell her that, at least.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::half joking:: And if you dont feel like offering up any information on the rest of the days events, you dont have to. ::smiles::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: But we have to tell Isaac.
Maeve Owens: MV: About what exactly?
YarnKittymon: JH: He'll ask what we did all day.
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh. Well, of course. ::forces another smile:: Him knowing shouldnt be a problem, as long as Libby doesnt find out everything will be just peachy.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods, then frowns:: You don't think she'll ask me anything, do you? I don't want to lie.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head:: I doubt it and if she does, I dont want you to feel like you *have* to lie. Dont worry about it Josh, okay? ::brushes it off and goes back to pretending to fix things::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks back at Maeve:: Okay. ::gets back to work::
Maeve Owens: MV: We could go out for icecream afterwards for all of the hard work you've put in?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::grins::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiling weakly:: Me too?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs a little:: yes, of course, you too.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs, too:: All right!
YarnKittymon: JH: ::gets through most of the clothes pretty quickly, though he seems tired near the end::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::glances around at everything, hoping Libby wont notice anything amiss by the time they are thew::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: We have another couple days yet, right? Come on, Josh; time for a break.
Maeve Owens: MV: Yeah, lets go get that icecream. ::grabs the keys and moves towards the door::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes Josh's hand and leads the way to Marquis's sweet shop::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::catches Maeve right outside the shop, gently putting a hand on her shoulder as he stands in front of her:: Maeve.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances at him quickly before turning her attention back to the door and making sure it was securely locked:: Guy? What can I do for you. ::fidgets a little, not looking him in the eye::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: I just wanted to apologize. I'm sure you were frightened.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shrugs, trying to not look bothered:: No need and I'm fine. ::shrugs again:: Been in worse situations. ::starts to walk away:: We're going to for icecream if you care to join us.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::is sticking close to Toby and Josh::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::follows Maeve for several steps before coming to his senses:: I know you don't want that, Maeve. I'll be around town for a bit yet.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::stops for a moment:: As a friend... hey wait a minute! you killed me
YarnKittymon: GU: ::stops, looking back at Maeve; softly:: What do you think the apology was for? You were bleeding to death, trying to kill me and Toby both. If you'd launched fire at us I don't know what would've happened.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sheepishly, she glances away:: Oh. Its kind of fuzzy really... um, did I burn either of you?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::shakes his head:: No; we're fine. But you wouldn't hold still; you wouldn't let Toby help you.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks back once they reach the sweet shop, noticing Maeve's not with them, and goes back to fetch her, though a bit slowly, as he's pretty worn out::
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh. Then I guess I owe you more for saving my life... again. ::shrugs, still not looking at him; joking again:: How much do I owe you for that?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::reaches into his pocket, pulling out the gold pieces and pressing them into Maeve's hand:: Not a thing. I still owe you, remember?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns, shaking her head::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::groans softly:: I hope Mrs. Hart isn't coming at me again.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::mutters:: I hope not. I've had my fill of people coming back for revenge.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::shakes his head, turning away:: If she were after me, I'd have kissed you by now.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::tries not to smile; she nods:: Okay. Well, if you would like to join us for friendly atmosphere at the local sweet shop, the offer stands. But if not, see you around. ::turns to walk away::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is standing not that far away, waiting for Maeve::
YarnKittymon: GU: Maeve, wait. I just...I want to know one thing.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles at Josh before turning back to look at Guy:: Whats that?
YarnKittymon: GU: Am I just Mr. Quinn repeated? If I hadn't hurt you, would you have stayed?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head, glancing away again; softly:: No, you didn't... ::doesnt really want to talk about this::
YarnKittymon: GU: You know what I did to you, Maeve. What I did to *him.* I just need to know.
Maeve Owens: MV: But um, that was... Mrs. Hart and besides, I hit you with a fireball... ::fidgets, looking back at Josh:: And there are people waiting for icecream...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks at Joshua like he hadn't seen him earlier:: I see. Good day, Maeve. ::turns to go::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looking a little sad she turns around to join Josh:: Sorry, you ready to go?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks up at Maeve; softly:: What did he mean--::puts on Guy's vague British accent::--"Mr. Quinn repeated?"
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles slightly:: Dont worry about it, it was just him being overly dramatic again.
YarnKittymon: JH: Did he really hurt you and Mr. Quinn? Who's Mrs. Hart?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::takes a deep breath and lets it out:: Mrs. Hart can control people's impulses, make them do things they normally wouldn't.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::eyes widen:: What did she do?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::winces:: Nothing, dont worry about it. It was a long time ago anyway.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::frowns:: What if she comes back?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head:: She wont. Now lets go have some fun, Toby is probably already on his second helping by now.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::still looks a little worried, but he walks with Maeve anyway, not asking any more questions::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles down at him and tentively puts her arm around him, in an attempt to make him feel better::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::puts a hand on Maeve's, smiling:: What's your favorite kind of ice cream?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Chocolate of course. But I guess that would be your least favorite wouldn't it?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods, grimacing:: I like strawberry, but they make a cinnamon ice cream that's good too.
Maeve Owens: MV: Strawberry is good... ::pauses:: when its mixed with chocolate anyway. ::grins::
YarnKittymon: JH: I guess you can get two scoops. How many do you think Toby will eat?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: We'll be lucky if theres any left since he's been there for hours now.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::laughs:: It's only been fifteen minutes!
Maeve Owens: MV: Yeah well its felt like an eternity to me. And if you've ever seen Toby's obsession with icecream then you should know its been equally as long for him.
YarnKittymon: : ::in the sweet shoppe, Toby's still eating what seems to be a brownie with three scoops of ice cream on it, though it could've had more before they came in; he smiles at them when they come in:: Hope you don't mind us starting first.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she smiles, taking another bite out of her brownie topped with vanilla icecream, one scoop only:: You guys took too long.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Yes, we were debating how much icecream Toby had consumed while we were on our way.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: Scoop and a half; why do you ask?
Maeve Owens: MV: We were afraid you'd eat the place out before we got the chance to have some.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: No, but I did eat all the chocolate.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::in mock horror:: You wouldnt dare!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: But I'd be happy to make you a milkshake.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::cringes:: No thanks, I'd rather just eat the strawberry.
YarnKittymon: : ::the good-natured clerk behind the counter says:: Don't worry; we have plenty of chocolate. The gentleman's just playing with you.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sticks her tongue out at Toby:: Yeah, he'd better be if he knows whats good for him. ::grins, and walks over to the counter to order a scoop of chocolate and another scoop of strawberry::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::gets a dish of cinnamon and strawberry::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she pays for their icecream and then sits down::
YarnKittymon: TY: What kept you two, anyway?
Maeve Owens: MV: Guy decided to pop up and be all over dramatic ::plays with her icecream for a second; softly:: He said I was kind of fighting you... sorry if I almost hurt you...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: Didn't hurt me, but you threw Guy's hand back, almost bloodied his nose.
Maeve Owens: MV: Oops. ::takes a bit of her icecream::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::eats some more, silently::
YarnKittymon: JH: I think Guy's scary.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::softly:: He's not really, he helps a lot of people. He's just a little over dramatic sometimes, you know, like those soap opera stars. ::smiles:: Anyway, he's harmless really...
YarnKittymon: JH: Really? He said he hurt you and Mr. Quinn.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::trying to hard to ease his mind:: Yeah, well, that was under special circumstances...and him being overly dramatic.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowning:: But it won't hurt you to stay away from him, Josh. You too, Dolly.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::just looks at her icecream::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks at Toby:: Then make Maeve stay away from him too.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::can't help but laugh::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::cant help but laugh too::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::has finished the brownie, and is working on his last scoop of ice cream:: Anyone dare me to eat another?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Go ahead.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::repeating something he heard on the radio:: Don't you think you had enough?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::stands up:: I'll *tell* you when I've had enough!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::thinks for a moment then stands up as well:: Come to think of it, I think I might could use a little more as well. ::grins::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::asks for another scoop, simply asking the clerk to surprise him::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::asks for another scoop of chocolate once he's done with Toby::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sits down, belatedly looking at the other two:: Did you want any more?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sits down as well, happily eating her other scoop of delicious chocolate:: Might as well clean them out... wouldn't want any chocolate to go to waist.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she shakes her head:: no thank you.
YarnKittymon: JH: No; I'm already getting cold.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks at Toby:: We're bigger kids than they are. Turning down icecream... ::shakes her head::
YarnKittymon: TY: We have bigger stomachs, anyway.
Maeve Owens: MV: True.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::finishes his ice cream, then yawns:: I'll be back tomorrow morning to finish up with the shop, OK?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Okay. Thanks for doing this... I dont even want to think about what Libby would do to me if she found out.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns; quietly:: You really want to tell her nothing happened?
Maeve Owens: MV: Yes! She trusted me with the shoppe and the minute she leaves it practically burns down! What does that tell you?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Tells me you're unlucky...and that I need to keep a better eye on you.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Yeah, right. ::scrapes her bowl in an attempt to clean it of all chocolate::
YarnKittymon: TY: Seriously, though.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sighs:: I dont want you to have to feel responsible for me, you have enough to worry about. ::stares at her now empty bowl::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: You need any more?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: No, I'm fine.
YarnKittymon: TY: Cheer up; we've changed all sorts of stuff. I just hope we haven't changed so much that...::quickly shakes his head:: I'll see you tomorrow. ::smiles at the kids:: Say hi to Isaac for me, okay?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles sadly and gets up, thinking that right about now she probably should be having a kid. She quickly shakes the thought away not willing to venture down that road again::
Maeve Owens: DK; ::has no idea what to make of the conversation but doesn't feel its her place to pry. She smiles at Josh and quietly says they should be on their way less Isaac returns and wonders where they are::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::finishes his last bite of ice cream, nodding at Dolly:: But he's out fishing; he'll probably be out all day. ::covers his mouth, looking wide-eyed at Maeve:: I'm sorry...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns:: What? Whats wrong?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks between Toby and Maeve:: He told me not to say where Isaac was.
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh, Josh, its alright, he just told you that in case that woman was around. Its safe now. She's long gone.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::lowers his hands:: Whew.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::goes to the door; softly:: Do you know where Guy is now, Maeve?
Maeve Owens: MV: Probably back at his place, why?
YarnKittymon: TY: Nothing. I'll see you later. ::walks quickly out, towards Guy's room::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns:: Now what do you suppose *thats* all about?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::goes to Guy's and knocks lightly on the door::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::steps back when he sees Toby::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::cringes:: I don't know what you're so worried about. You can tell where people are, right? Can you tell if they're OK?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::hesitantly:: Generally...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods:: You know Isaac and Eli and Libby and Jack, right? Check them all. I'll pay you whatever you ask.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods:: It'll take a few minutes. 5 gold apiece, yeah?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, handing the money easily to Guy:: Go on.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::sits down and does what Toby asks, concentrating hard, and he confirms that they all seem to be fine::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, trying to stay sober, though he looks rather relieved:: Sorry to waste your time, then. Thanks. ::walks out without another word::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::waves goodbye to Josh and Dolly then heads towards Libby's Shoppe, planning on salvaging what she can of this business day::
