YarnKittymon: TY: ::goes to Libby's shop near
closing time, wanting to get this out of the way as soon as possible,
and not wanting to wait until Libby and Jack get back on Sunday
or Monday--he goes inside, and hangs back upon seeing Maeve's
helping a customer::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she's doing her best to be as nice as Libby is, and may be accomplishing it more than she thinks. She thanks the customer, gives them their change and wishes them a good evening. She catches sight of Toby and smiles:: Hey, what brings you over here this time of night?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks up at Maeve, hesitance in his expression; quietly:: Are you closing up? I can come back if you're busy.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nodsd, glancing around the store:: The place is empty but its fine. Whats on your mind? ::she goes about her chores preparing to close up::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looking at a silk blouse hanging near him, to avoid looking at Maeve; softly:: You know how me and Becky are back together, right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles a little, trying to hide her pleased look:: Yes. ::looks at him, waiting for him to go on::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still not looking at Maeve:: She...she was worried we were going to fight. You know, about changing the future or whatever.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns, a twinge of guilt twisting in her gut when she cant think of any other future he could be talking about:: You mean about whats no longer going to happen in two years?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, looking up at Maeve, a bit of fear in his eyes:: If...if something *does* come up, I'll do everything I can to protect you. But...just don't get killed, because my friend in the future's not gonna help me fix it again, and I'm...not going to ask Becky to help either.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::the twinge of guilt manifests itself and is plainly written on her face, she swallows hard:: I'm sorry I was the reason she left you. ::shakes her head:: And dont worry about it Toby. Its *not* going to happen. And if it does... ::she pauses for a moment, taking a deep breath; quietly:: I wouldn't want you to chance losing Becky again. I saw what it did to you the first time... and it wouldn't be worth it seeing that we all know Becky is kind of set against changing things.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: You're not the one who made me sleep with Lu. Maeve, I'd... Becky says that suffering and everything happens for a reason. I'd like nothing better than to just fix everything, but if I was gonna do that, I'd have to get in a plane and go to Europe and kill Hitler now. ::eyes widen as he realizes what he's said, though Maeve likely hasn't heard of the man::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks rather confused:: Whose Hitler? That doctor person from... well you know.
Maeve Owens: ((so how does hitler survive in this world full of variants? lots and lots of body guards? :D magical barriers? :D ))
YarnKittymon: TY: ::cringes:: You could say he liked to do heartless experiments, yeah. Anyway...maybe we're messing with God's plans. I can't rewrite history for you, and I shouldn't even if Becky *would* forgive me. ::softly:: I'm sorry.
YarnKittymon: ((Well, I'm sure there's Nazi variants too; all he'd need is someone with a bit more power than Jack and he'd be safe for good ^^; ))
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns:: When does he start his heartless experiments?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looking down:: Not for a while yet. Do you have any idea what time of year it's supposed to happen? Anything at all?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks a little concerned but decides that he probably isnt going to tell her, she shakes her head; rather insistantly:: Even if I did know it doesn't matter because its *not* going to happen.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: I hope you're right, but if you're wrong, denying it isn't gonna make it go away.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shrugs:: We've changed things too much so therefore logic says I'm right. ::smiles::
YarnKittymon: TY: Could be. I just wish we knew who did it, and why, so we'd know if we'd changed them enough.
Maeve Owens: MV: For all we know it could have been Penny. Something we did could have speeded up the time line of events. And the reason I'm still standing here might be because Isaac is here instead of Donald and you had to stay in town because Isaac was out fishing. ::shrugs:: So whats the point of worrying about it when you have no idea nor anyway of knowing? Denying it seems like a pretty good path to take.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods; quietly:: I guess you're right. Just...if I thought my number had any chance of being up a couple years from now...I'd try to get everything in order before then. Just in case. I guess I'm morbid that way.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns, looking a wee bit uncomfortable:: Everything in order? LIke a will?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: I don't care where my stuff goes when I'm dead. Just make sure everyone knows how you feel about 'em, that there's no loose ends. You know. ::smiles slightly:: I feel a lot better on that front now than I did a couple days ago.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::grins:: Yeah, and I for one am happy the two of you finally ironed everything out.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles warmly:: I don't know if we'll get everything back on track from the future she saw...but I hope so. ::more brightly:: And one of our kids said you were alive then.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::surprised:: Eh? Well I obviously missed a lot. ::frowns:: If one of your kids said I was alive then whats the problem?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns; quietly:: Well, they said someone named Maeve was alive...it sounded a little like it was their friend, maybe a kid their age who got named after you.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sadly:: Oh. ::still looking rather confused:: When did you guys meet your kids and are you out of your mind? ::bites her lower lip::
YarnKittymon: TY: She stumbled across them when she was in the future I don't know how many years. And I...kinda saw into her mind on Wednesday.
Maeve Owens: MV: :a little fearful:: Dont tell me that woman is back again...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head quickly:: No, it was a freak thing, this kid at the orphanage, I guess she kinda merged us together, kind of. We could hear each other's thoughts. ::quietly:: It was kinda scary.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Yeah, I bet it was. Did this happen before or after the two of you settled your differences?
YarnKittymon: TY: Kinda during, I guess. It's hard to argue with someone when you can see everything they're thinking.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::muttering good naturedly:: Talk about some good counseling sessions.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles a little:: I would've done a lot worse to get back in her good graces.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Well, I'm glad you managed it. So are we going to be having another wedding soon? ::grins::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs weakly:: I doubt she's ready for *that* just yet.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shrugs:: You never know, weddings tend to do things to people.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: You think she's jealous of Libby?
Maeve Owens: MV: Jealous? Or envious that its not her? Or are they both basically the same thing?
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, you know...does seeing a friend all dressed in white really make every woman want to do the same?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shakes her head quickly:: Makes me want to run screaming.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs a little:: I guess you wouldn't *have* to wear a white dress if you think another color becomes you better.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Its not so much the dress but the committment that goes into it.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: I figured. I guess I'll know if Becky ever grows up more than you. ::quickly:: Hey, you need any help closing up?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Well, theres not much left to do but clean out the register and lock the door so I think I've pretty much got it covered. Thanks anyway.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: I could always change the locks for you.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs again:: Then you'd have to change Libby's key too or she'll have a heart attack if she cant get in.
YarnKittymon: TY: Nah, she'd know it was me. Which means she'd come knocking on my door with death in her eyes. Which I guess'd be OK if I was over at Becky's, but I can't be sure of that.
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh yeah, I can definitely see *that* happening. Its the same look I keep imagining when I think she might find out about the fire.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shrugs:: She'll probably find out about it someday, but you fixed everything, and sales have been good, right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sighs:: Well, the sales weren't as good on the day of the fire as they should have been but other than that its been going pretty good. And I'm just about dead on my feet to. I've never had to smile and pretend to be friendly to so many people in my life.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: I'm glad I don't have to be polite.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she arranges everything the way it should be then takes the money from the register and places it in the box Libby gave her. She grabs the keys as she walks to the doors::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles at Maeve, opening the door for her:: You gonna go see Isaac tonight?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks up at him, smiling her thanks, then once the door is closed she makes sure to lock it nice and secure:: I dont know. Not sure if I should bother him. Its kind of late isn't it?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shrugs:: Maybe, but I doubt he'll care. Not too late to catch the second showing of that movie, either.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Are we trying to play matchmaker Toby?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: Maybe. I'm pretty fond of both of you, so if you got together it'd be real convenient for me. That's all.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::chuckles:: Okay. At any rate it would all depend on him now wouldn't it? He has his brothers and sister to look out for and I'm not sure he's looking for anyone....or would even... oh I dont even know what I'm trying to say.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: Only one way to find out, huh?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shrugs:: We've been going places together and he hasn't mentioned a thing. And I'm not going to because I dont know and then he may not want to hang around me at all! ::frowns::
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, maybe it'll turn into something more. It did with Becky, though I gotta admit, I was flirting with her almost from the getgo.
Maeve Owens: MV: I dont know but I'm not doing anything until I know for sure. ::she smiles then starts walking towards her house::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::walks alongside her, smiles:: You aren't supposed to do anything except show you're interested, besides. The man's supposed to do the work.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Maybe so but do you really think Isaac would? I'd feel better if he did then I wouldn't have to worry about anything. Which I'm not really worried about anything but... ::sighs:: Oh well, what happens, happens.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: Give him time.
Maeve Owens: MV: Guess I'll have to.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: But it wouldn't hurt to wear something low-cut once in a while.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she looks a little shocked but it wears off quickly since she's getting used to Toby and his jokes; smirking:: Somehow I think that might be too bold. ::gives him a look that says his comment was too but she still looks amused:: It might scare him away.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: I've never met a man scared of *that,* Maeve.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::rolls her eyes::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: Nah; it's best to get a man who likes you no matter what you're wearing. I wonder if Libby has some of those awful flapper clothes; that'd be a real test.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: You know, I still want to try those jeans all the girls were wearing. ::she looks down at her skirt:: Seems those would be a lot easier to run around in.
YarnKittymon: TY: I guess if you were a miner you could wear some. Now all you have to do is find a mine near Marquis...I guess I could make one if you didn't have any luck, though.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::has no idea what he is talking about so she just smiles and nods:: Then again that sounds like too much work.
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, you could wear short pants...clamdiggers, I've heard 'em called, I think. Lu...::trails off, inhaling deeply:: I've seen girls ride horses with 'em.
Maeve Owens: MV: Thats true. I could always start a new fashion trend. Although Libby probably wouldn't like it if I tried while I was working.
YarnKittymon: TY: Either that or they'd catch on and make you both rich.
Maeve Owens: MV: Now theres an idea. Then I wouldn't have to smile at people all day.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: Or you can marry well, you know.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::wrinkles her nose:: If I happened to really really like them maybe. But for the sake of having money... I'm afraid I might regret it and end up like Libby's mom. You wouldn't have to worry about someone coming back for revenge cause I'd find the tallest building around and jump. ::smirks::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: I think that's like a three-story hotel in Gate Town, and with our luck that'd just hurt you. Unless you figured out how to scale the radio tower.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head:: Somethings are just easier done in New York.
YarnKittymon: TY: Just as well. If you're gonna marry for money, just make sure I'm not around, 'cuz I won't let you go through with it.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: In that case I might as well not even try because I doubt Libby would either. ::frowns:: Or maybe she just intervened because she hated Donald.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs slightly, then pauses:: Wait...she convinced you to call it off?
Maeve Owens: MV: The doubt was already there she just gave me a little push I guess you could say.
YarnKittymon: TY: Where was she when I met Lu? ::stops in front of Maeve's house:: Well...if it all happened like everyone said it did...I think you made the right decision.
Maeve Owens: MV: I imagine she was the same place I was... back here ignorant as to what was going on. ::she walks up to her door and unlocks it, turning back around to face him; quietly:: I have no idea what rumors are flying around and I dont know about making the right decision... probably just should have said no to begin with. ::shrugs::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shrugs; quietly:: If you'd been clear about it before Donald was locked up, that man might've killed you...or if you'd told him earlier, he might've gone off and been happy, instead of stumbling upon Josh. I'm biased, but...I think things worked out for the best.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her expression sad:: I think it worked out for the best too. I wouldn't wish Donald back if it took away Josh. I'm just saying I might have handled the whole thing a little better.
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, we can't change the past...but you can change how you act in the future. ::puts his hands in his pockets, turning to go:: Good night, Maeve.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::deep in thought, she nods; quietly:: Good night. ::she turns and goes into the house::
