~Thursday, October 13, 1932~

YarnKittymon: : ::Toby's taken his whole family to the amusement park he helped to build, along with quite a few of his friends, figuring it's the closest thing to a wild bachelor party he'd want to have anyway::
YarnKittymon: ::after they go on a few rides--forming quite a big crowd on a roller coaster, really--Toby gets everyone to the midway section, telling Becky he'll win her anything she wants, grinning widely::
YarnKittymon: : ::one of the barkers hassles Maeve, just like on Coney Island:: Pretty lady, is your beau man enough to win you a prize?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she lifts one eyebrow; smirking. She walks on though, not about to be baited by the likes of them::
YarnKittymon: : ::the barker keeps on pestering them:: Come on; it's easy enough a child could do it! ::catches Josh's eye:: Little guy, give it a try?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances down to Josh:: He's lyin. Its rigged. ::smirks::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks up at Maeve with wide eyes:: They wouldn't cheat, would they?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: They make it next to impossible for you to win.
YarnKittymon: JH: Isn't that illegal?
Maeve Owens: MV: The way they have it set up they can get around it.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::with Toby; grins:: I'm sure i've been won enough before at amusement parks
YarnKittymon: JH: ::frowns; when he sees a man trying to play one of the games:: Don't play; they cheat!
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks back at Josh with a smile:: Thanks for the advice, boy, but I promised my girl I'd give this a try. ::aims a softball at some milk jars; he hits square on and the softball bounces back, almost hitting him in face::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::is walking with Libby:: Toby sure seems happy with his family here
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she laughs again:: Not only is it rigged, but its also dangerous.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::grins at Jack:: I would be too, if my family were like them. I was happy with *your* family.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::remembers playing the rigged games himself, then smiles at Becky:: You want to ride the racing carousel instead?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: Bet i get the brass one this time
Quantum Catz: JK: ::smiles:: Shame they live on the other end of the country
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: You already got a gold one and you're getting another Saturday--now you're getting greedy.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::leans against Jack; softly:: They wouldn't want to move, would they? I guess they're doing well enough, they don't have to.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: I can be greedy if i want
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shrugs:: M'sisters've got lives of their own now really...Mum might, but then she'd be away from them
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: All right. ::gets in line for the ride, remembering years ago when he first met Becky on Coney Island::
YarnKittymon: LB: Your mom's such a dear lady.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::chuckles:: Best mom i ever had anyway
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks back at the others:: You coming on?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs, to Jack:: I hope so.
Maeve Owens: MV: Of course. ::she glances to Isaac::
Quantum Catz: LX: ::shakes her head:: I think i'll give it a miss - even if i could get on i'd probably not be able to get off again
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: Yeah, sure
YarnKittymon: JH: ::gets in line silently behind Isaac and Maeve::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::waits with Lexie::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::gets on behind Josh::
Quantum Catz: JK: Carousels ain't really my thing
YarnKittymon: JH: ::calls back to Jack:: But it's a racing carousel; it goes real fast. And you get to take rings from it!
Quantum Catz: JK: I'd still prefer my feet on the ground, t'be honest, mate
Quantum Catz: EK: ::backs away a few steps:: Carousels are boring - i'm gonna go find something else to do - be back later ::runs off before anyone can say anything to stop him::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins widely when it's their turn to ride; suggests:: Make sure you get an outside horse--they don't move up and down but they're the most fun.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: Not that Toby's done this a lot or anything
YarnKittymon: TY: ::makes sure to get a horse just in front of Becky's::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::climbs onto one on the outside::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::winds up on the other side of the carousel from Maeve, but he gets an outside horse so he's pleased::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::doesn't get on the outside but he's not too bothered anyway::
Maeve Owens: SH: ::she hangs back with Lexie, happy to watch the kids have fun::
YarnKittymon: TH: ::doesn't get an outside horse, and is a little irritated at that, but doesn't comment.::
Maeve Owens: PH: ::he passes up the ride to wander over to the exhibits::
YarnKittymon: : ::the ride starts up and very quickly gains speed::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::leans out, easily able to reach the rings, and he touches them almost every time he passes::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::leans out as well, attempting to grab the rings and does manage to snag quite a few::
Quantum Catz: BM ::grabs for the rings too - remembering when she played this back on Coney Island::
YarnKittymon: : ::one of the rings that just glances Becky's fingers seems sticky, and she has no trouble catching it in the end::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::catches a couple of other ones too, without the aid of stickyness::
YarnKittymon: : ::the ride finally winds down; Josh hasn't caught a single ring, due to his short arms::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::hops off the horse before the ride's quite stopped, holding out his arms to help Becky down::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: Did anyone quite figure out what Toby was doing?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sneaks over to the ride operator with her one very sticky ring and while he's look elsewhere she attempts to reach up and stick it straight on to his head:: You know, you really should keep these things a lot cleaner. All this sticky stuff makes it a bit hard to pull them. ::she says it just loud enough for the whole line to hear then attempts to scamper off::
YarnKittymon: : ::the operator looks up at the ring on his forehead, cross-eyed:: What's the meaning of this? ::takes off the ring and notices it's much brighter than the brass ones; shakes his head in bewilderment::
YarnKittymon: : ::a mother comments, rather worried:: That's dangerous, isn't it? Someone could lose an arm!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles back at Becky:: What'd you catch?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::raises her rings and then smirks:: You'd better watch that woman doesn't get too upset about those strangely sticky rings
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: I think they're gone now. ::half the rings Becky's caught, including the sticky one, appears to be made of gold, not iron or brass::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: I'd've been happy with a brass one, you know
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: Once I'd seen you caught one, I stopped making 'em easy to catch for you. I'd just feel bad if you didn't get *any*.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sticks out her tongue:: I'm perfectly capable of catching them without your help ::though she doesn't seem annoyed at all::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still smiling:: Well, I didn't catch a one, so I had to make sure you got enough for the both of us.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: Too busy messing about with them obviously
Maeve Owens: MV: ::turning to the woman:: Maybe, you never know how much sticky stuff they might put on one of them. ::grins::
YarnKittymon: TH: ::smiles at Toby:: You could've at least seen that I'd got one, if you wah gonna cheat.
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman turns to the attendant, looking about ready to throw a fit:: What's wrong with you?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs and walks away::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks at the whole scene; softly, to Jack:: It's a wonder Coney didn't burn while she was there.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::chuckles:: Don't tell me she was even worse back there
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: You have no idea, the trouble she made. Have you ever seen the photos in her house?
Quantum Catz: JK: Not really eyed up her photos much
YarnKittymon: LB: She dressed Alex in a dress, you know.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::coming up beside them:: And you know what? I got Toby in one too. Didn't get a picture of that one though. ::grins::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::hadn't heard this story:: Pardon me?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::laughs:: It wasn't the best sight in the world to be honest
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: The girls were feeling a little down on our trip out of New York, so I went the extra mile to cheer them up.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: Oh yeah, it was very cheering
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: Well...I suppose as long as you don't try to out-do Becky's dress Saturday, it's all right.
Maeve Owens: MV: Becky, correct me if I'm wrong, but wasnt there some make up involved as well? I do remember the bonnet...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs despite himself::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smirks:: I'm pretty sure there *was* lipstick involved
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks at Libby and Jack:: So you two've lost all respect for me now.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::smirks:: Well, whatever floats yer boat, mate
YarnKittymon: LB: And you don't need to worry what *we* think of you, as long as Becky can put up with it.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: I did it for her sake, really.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::leaves them behind to link her arm with Isaac; grinning::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is tagging along with Maeve and Isaac, though after a moment he realizes they might want to be alone and walks next to Dolly instead::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::gives josh a small grin, glancing about her real quick. She doesn't feel she should leave them but she feels kind of funny not having friends of her own to walk with::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: I hope you don't expect me to ever wear a dress
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she laughs:: Well, if you never accept a dare from me and as long as you dont get stranded in a hotel room with the only mean of escape being to go undercover as a woman... you might be safe.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: I'll remember about the dare part anyway
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she catches site of someone she knows and quietly excuses herself. She doesn't head straight for him though, not wanting it to be apparent to either parties that she wants to talk to him::
YarnKittymon: : ::a rather handsome young man, Dolly's age, is hanging about; he has light blonde hair, almost white, and the build of an athlete; he's grabbed a few tickets and is on his way to the largest roller coaster when he sees Dolly and smirks at her:: Cutting school too, are you?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles at Josh:: Guess you're stuck with me and Maeve since the other two have gone off
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she smiles shyly at him, nodding:: Yeah, there wasn't much going on today.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::smiles:: If you don't mind.
Quantum Catz: IS: Course we don't, do we? ::smiles at Maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shrugs, joking:: If you get to be too much trouble we'll just string you upside down and attach ya to the Ferris Wheel.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::laughs:: You would not!
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: Well you never know what Maeve's capable of
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she grins mischeviously:: Nothing is impossible.
YarnKittymon: JR: ::smiles:: Want to ride the Lightning, then? ::looks up at the rather intimidating coaster, rather newly mended by Toby::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::laughs:: But that'd make Isaac mad, right? So you wouldn't do it.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::her smile grows a little bigger: Sure.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: Well as long as she didn't hurt you...
YarnKittymon: JR: ::grins, grabbing Dolly's hand a little roughly and taking her towards the coaster, paying the tickets and getting in line::
Maeve Owens: MV: Well, the stringing up wouldn't hurt but I cant promise what would happen when it started to move. So maybe we'll just stick you in the dunking machine.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she giggles, the roughness both scaring and exciting her.::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::laughs:: Isaac wouldn't let me on the fishing boat; you think he'd throw me in a dunking machine?
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a bit of a line for the coaster, and Jerry seems rather bored, not particularly able to make conversation::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks back at Maeve, Isaac, and Josh, a bit of a longing look on her face that she doesn't hide::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she bites her lip, wanting to talk to him but being so shy she cant think up something that doesn't sound stupid::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: That is true
Quantum Catz: JK: ::leans over and wraps an arm around Libby, kissing her head::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::pretending to think hard:: You guys aren't leaving me many choices you know.
YarnKittymon: JR: ::taps his foot impatiently in the line, murmuring something about yelling "fire," though he doesn't follow through on it::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::puts her arm around Jack's waist, leaning against him, closing her eyes::
YarnKittymon: JH: Well, you could buy me an ice cream to punish me. It might give me a headache.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::hesitantly:: Are you ready for the game on friday?
YarnKittymon: JR: It's hardly anything more than a pick-up game.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: A chocolate one? That just might work...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smirks:: Yeah, i've found ice-cream makes a great punishment
YarnKittymon: JH: ::grins:: And then you could make me go on another ride to be even meaner.
Quantum Catz: JK: It'll be alright, y'know - things tend t'work out around me
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiling, her eyes still closed:: You think I would've married you if I hadn't known that? ::looks up and kisses him swiftly on the cheek::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::chuckles:: Good t'know y've got faith
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she shrugs:: When's the big play off then? ::she's not completely sure what that all means but she's heard the words used before::
YarnKittymon: JR: Oh, versus Marquette. They can't play as well as they think they can; it will hardly be worth watching. Except to see me, of course.
Maeve Owens: MV: Okay, one *chocolate* double scoop ice cream and an endless ride on the carousels. Sure to make your head spin.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she smiles a little::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::scowls:: You're not gonna make me eat *chocolate*, are you, Isaac?
YarnKittymon: JR: *Will* you be there, Dolly?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::giggles::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she nods:: Of course. I wouldn't miss it.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: Hey it's meant to be a *punishment*
YarnKittymon: JH: Aw, can't I just have soap instead?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::ruffles Josh's hair:: Come on then, maybe we can find another flavour for you
YarnKittymon: JR: ::grins as they reach the head of the line, and gets in the car first, rather excited::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::smiles adoringly at his brother:: Good. I don't remember doing anything bad today anyway.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::sits down beside him; smiling anxiously::
YarnKittymon: : ::the ride starts with a rather vicious jerk, and then goes up a lift hill, descending with such speed that it makes one feel like one's stomach has dropped out::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::other than a surpised squeak when the ride starts, Dolly manages to contain her screams by closing her eyes and hanging on for dear life::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: I'm sure you haven't
YarnKittymon: JR: ::just laughs the whole ride through, though his hair is rather mussed when it comes to a stop; teases:: You weren't *scared,* were you?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she straightens her long brown curls, taking a moment to tie the ribbon back in place. She blushes:: no...
YarnKittymon: JR: ::grins, pulling her out of the car:: Good. If that scared you you'd never be ready for this next thing.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she smiles:: Whats the next thing?
YarnKittymon: JR: You want me to ruin the surprise?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she shrugs:: Guess it wouldn't be much of a surprise then.
YarnKittymon: JR: ::smiles, leading her to a small shed at the side of one of the restaurants, almost surrounded by a large shrub; he slips inside the dark room, waiting for Dolly to follow::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::frowning, she hesitates:: What are you doing? Are you even aloud back here? ::she glances uneasily over her shoulder::
YarnKittymon: JR: Relax; my sister works here. Come on! ::motions for Dolly to follow him into the room, which is apparently a pantry::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::that seems to satisfy her so she slips inside as well::
YarnKittymon: JR: ::once Dolly's inside, he rummages around the pantry, happening upon a bottle of sherry used for cooking; his eyes light up, and he offers it to Dolly:: Go ahead; have a drink. You should see how the funhouse will look.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she hesitantly takes the bottle from him:: And you're just allowed to help yourself to their drinks? What is it anyway?
YarnKittymon: JR: Sherry. ::grins:: I'll bet you can't even drink half of it without getting sick.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::surprised, she shoves it back to him as if it burned her:: I cant...
YarnKittymon: JR: ::looks rather disappointed:: I thought you weren't so hung-up.
Maeve Owens: DK: Hung up? Or just smart? I dont need that stuff to have a good time. ::she turns to leave the dark room::
YarnKittymon: JR: ::sighs, standing:: Dolly, wait. I'm sorry.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she pauses, then slowly turns to look at him:: Oh?
YarnKittymon: JR: ::quietly:: You're not gonna tell anyone, right?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she shrugs:: Its not my place to tell anyone.
YarnKittymon: JR: ::looks at Dolly a moment longer, with a bit of a cold expression, and then leaves the shed without a word::
Maeve Owens: DK: :: disappointed that he turned out to be something else, she leaves as well, although she doesn't return to Isaac and the others::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::suddenlyshe feels something brush against her legs::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she jumps; sharply:: Eli! One of these days I'm going to step on you! Or worse! ::she blushes, realizing that several other people probably heard her.::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::was originally a cat but when she jumps he involuntarily switches to a fox::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she smirks:: Yeah, you're sly all right. How long have you been following me?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::changes back into a human and straightens up; a bit of a scowl on his face:: What were you doing in there with whatsizname?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::a bit defensive:: Nothing, not that its any of your business.
Quantum Catz: EK: Uh-huh. Thought you were meant to be the sensible one
Maeve Owens: DK: You saw me come right back out didn't you?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs:: Didn't see you go in - i've got better things to do than spy on you
Maeve Owens: DK: I wasn't even in there a minute. Didn't know he was going to offer me a drink and when he did, I refused and came right back out. Happy?
Quantum Catz: EK: Maybe y'are still the boring, sensible one after all - Isaac'd be pleased
Maeve Owens: DK: :: looking hurt, she turns away while wishing she'd taken the offered drink::
Quantum Catz: EK: Don't see why y're taking it so seriously when you get to be Miss Perfect in front of Isaac as usual
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she quickly turns back around; angrily:: Maybe because I'm tired of always being Miss Perfect as you put it. If you get so tired of getting in trouble then why dont you try my role on for size? As you says, its pretty boring.
Quantum Catz: EK: Maybe i'm tired of always being second best to you and Josh - did you see him with Maeve and Josh? Right little happy family unit there, what do they need us for ::smirks a bit:: Or me anyway

Maeve Owens: DK: Isaac isn't going to replace us with Maeve. He *wouldn't* do that. ::although her eyes are clouded with doubt.::
Quantum Catz: EK: Well we're nearly as old as he was when he had to look after us...maybe he'll decide it's time for us to look after ourselves ::smirks:: Although you'd always be useful as a babysitter for Josh when they want time alone i guess
Maeve Owens: DK: You sound like you think Isaac is just going to disown us!
Quantum Catz: EK: No, just that he doesn't need to look after us anymore
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she frowns; quietly:: I dont know what to say Eli. I'm not even sure how I feel about her.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs:: It doesn't matter what you say - you and Josh were always his favourites anyway - i'm off ::raises his eyebrow and smirks:: Wouldn't want to cramp your style with the guys ::turns to go::
Maeve Owens: DK: Thats not true Eli and you know it. He's just more worried about Josh because of those... monsters. ::pauses:: Where are you going?
Quantum Catz: EK: The monsters're gone, Dolly - in case you didn't notice. And i'm not going anywhere - i'm just going
Maeve Owens: DK: Well maybe he's still scared! How should I know? ::she folds her arms, looking a bit distressed:: But *Isaac* likes you just as much as the rest of us and if you think differently maybe you should go ask him.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::snaps:: I don't *care* what Isaac thinks, okay? ::changes back into a fox and, pausing for a moment to turn around and look at his sister, he runs off::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she sighs, then turns to go find Isaac. Her brother can hate her for all she cares but she's afraid he's headed for trouble and Isaac should know.::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::is just buying ice cream for Josh; sees Dolly:: Hey, Dolly - do you want an ice cream too?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she shrugs, opening her mouth to say something but she shuts it again, struggling with herself to get the words out. She glances around her before lowering her head; quietly.:: Can I talk to you for a moment? Alone.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::frowns a bit, looking confused. He glances at Maeve and Josh:: Yeah sure ::smiles at them:: Guess i'll be back in a minute
YarnKittymon: JH: ::cheerfully:: Just don't bring me chocolate or Maeve will have to eat it all!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she laughs:: I wont be complaining. My stomach might, but I wont. ::grins::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she frowns, her eyes still on the ground::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::grabs Maeve's hand, motioning:: Look; that table in the sun just opened up. ::moves towards it, pulling on Maeve's hand to get her to follow:: Do you ever get cold?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::is about to laugh too but it's replaced with concern when he sees Dolly; he moves towards her and rests his hand on her shoulder:: So what d'you want to talk about?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::with a quick glance back at Dolly and Isaac, she lets Josh pull her along; smiling:: Yeah, I'm not one for cold weather really.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::softly:: Eli. ::she watches until they're a safe distance away and then searches around for any foxes lurking nearby::
YarnKittymon: JH: I just wondered, since you can control fire. I didn't know if you couldn't get cold, or maybe you're cold *all* the time, so you don't get burned.
Quantum Catz: IS: What about him?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Well if you're thinking in those kind of terms then I should probably stay away from water completely.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks pretty baffled for a while, and then laughs:: *That's* why you hate boats, huh?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::sadly, and not meeting his eyes less she give her own feelings of unease away:: He's upset. I think he might be jealous about Maeve and he has this notion that you like me and Josh more than him.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::blinks, looking surprised:: Why does he think that?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::the smile dims for a second but she recovers pretty quickly:: Um, yeah. I guess I just prefer land. So, whats your favorite ride here so far?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::instantly:: The roller coaster. I didn't like the horses; they weren't any faster than a real horse and I couldn't reach any rings. What do you like?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she shrugs:: I don't know. You'd have to ask him. But he seemed pretty upset and I was afraid he might do something to get himself in trouble...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs, rubbing a hand over his eyes:: He's not exactly easy to find when he doesn't want to be
Maeve Owens: MV: ::the smile comes back and she almost says the tunnel of love but thinks better of it:: Oh, I don't know, I think I'll agree with you on the roller coaster.
YarnKittymon: JH: Miss Libby says nothing here's nearly as good as the rides on Coney Island. Is that true?
Maeve Owens: DK: Yeah, last I saw he was a fox. And he's going to hate me for telling you... but I thought that I should... ::she chances a look up to see if her choice was the right one::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles slightly:: Don't worry - i'm glad you did even if he isn't ::sighs:: I can't believe he thinks i like you and Josh better than him
Maeve Owens: DK: ::smiles weakly and goes back to studying the ground::
Maeve Owens: MV: Well, there was a lot more to choose from on Coney Island.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::frowns:: Is that why she won't ride anything here?
Quantum Catz: IS: Maybe i should go try to find him before he does go too far away
Maeve Owens: MV: ::chuckles:: That might have something to do with it.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she nods; then quietly:: Just don't tell him I told you anything, although I'm pretty sure he'll figure it out for himself.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: That's if he actually lets me find him - where was the last place you saw him?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks around, tapping his foot:: Well, I think this place is great. But if Coney Island's a lot better, maybe I should go visit there someday.
Maeve Owens: MV: I think this place is great too. The people here are nicer. ::she smiles::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::grins:: You just like it here because Isaac's here.
Maeve Owens: DK: Out by the restaurant over there. ::she points in the direction she came from::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she laughs:: Well, I guess thats a plus. Then theres the three of you and we cant leave out Libby and Toby and Becky.
Quantum Catz: IS: Okay - come on - i just need to tell Maeve and Josh where i'm going, are you going to stay with them?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she shrugs:: I dont know. ::she looks over at them and frowns:: I think I'd rather just go ride some more rides.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::cheerfully:: Well, I like it here too. Sometimes I miss the water, but I still like it better than Saxton.
Quantum Catz: IS: Are you sure ::smiles uncertainly:: You might have fun with them
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she shrugs again:: Maybe.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods:: Thats good. I'm glad you've come to like it here.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates:: You're not worried about Maeve too, are you?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::smiling gamely:: Though I guess part of why I like it is because we're never hungry here.
Maeve Owens: DK: No. ::she doesn't sound very convincing though::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles weakly:: In that case I'm doubly glad you're here.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks concerned:: I'm not going to forget about you just because i have a girlfriend, Dolly...you're my sister, i love you - i didn't spend all those years making sure you were all okay just to forget about you now
YarnKittymon: JH: ::grins:: And we only had ice cream once in Saxton.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::softly:: I know. ::her lower lip starts to tremble and she bites down on it::
Quantum Catz: IS: Hey... ::moves forward to hug her::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::moves into the hug; quietly:: I'm fine, its Eli really. He just made me doubt it just a bit... I'm sorry.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: It's okay - don't worry about it
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she pulls away:: You should go find him.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::nods:: Yeah - i'll just go tell Maeve and Josh
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she stays back, not looking like she's going to join them either::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks up when Isaac approaches, a little disappointed that he forgot the ice cream::
Quantum Catz: IS: Hey ::smiles weakly at Maeve and Josh:: I need to go find Eli - Dolly's a bit worried about him
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns, looking rather concerned:: Is he okay?
Quantum Catz: IS: Yeah, he's fine, he's just ::hesitates:: A bit upset about some stuff
YarnKittymon: JH: ::frowns, quietly:: I hope he didn't run away again.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes widen, looking even more concerned now:: Do you need us to help you look?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: If he doesn't want to be found then he won't be - we looked for ages last time and in the end he came back on his own
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods:: Okay. Um, good luck?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: Thanks ::heads off to look for Eli::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::turns back to Maeve, frowning:: Maybe we should look for him. Or we could get some ice cream I guess. Or get the ice cream in cones and then look for him.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods, smiling weakly:: Why don't we get that ice cream first? If Isaac cant find him then we'll help since its probably Isaac who should speak to him in the first place.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::stands up; quietly:: OK. But I don't want him to think we weren't worried about him.
Maeve Owens: MV: I know. ::she hesitates, not wanting to step on Isaac's authority or anything:: We'll keep our eyes open. Who knows, Eli might come back here first.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::frowns, then looks back at Dolly:: Do you want some ice cream?
Maeve Owens: DK: ::smiles weakly:: No thanks Josh. I think I'm going to take off and go on some rides.
YarnKittymon: JH: Oh. OK. ::heads back to the ice cream shoppe::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles at Dolly, who weakly returns one of her own, and follows Josh over to the ice cream place::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::gets himself a scoop of strawberry ice cream, and chocolate for Maeve, in cones; he pays for them with his own pocket-money, and then leaves the shop, keeping his eyes out for his brother, in any form he might have taken::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles, then digs out some change to hand to him for her cone:: Here you go. Thanks for the ice cream.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::shakes his head:: I don't need it.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she chuckles:: But I thought I was suppose to pay.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::smiles:: You can buy one for Eli when we find him.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she puts her coins back and nods her head:: Okay. I guess that will do. ::she grins, thinking that he has got to be greatest kid she's ever known:: Thanks for the ice cream. I guess we could walk while we eat? ::her tone hinti
Maeve Owens: ng that they might be casually looking for Eli::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods, motioning the opposite direction that Isaac went:: We didn't really go over there yet; maybe we missed something.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods:: Yeah, they could have something hidden away over there.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::very quietly:: If he was sneaking away he'd probably be something small.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns, not sure what to even do if they run across him::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is looking around between licks of his ice cream cone, for any animal that seems to be eyeing them--after a while, he even thinks to check above him, in case Eli might be a bird::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she eats her cone while looking around as well, even though she isn't sure what she's looking for, and occasionally pointing out something interesting just to make it appear that they aren't *really* looking::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::doesn't say much more, though he looks rather worried when it seems they can't find Eli::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::gently:: Dont worry Josh, I'm sure he's fine. Maybe Isaac found him, we can go back and find out.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::frowns, then, more cheerfully:: At least there's no monsters out here.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods, then turns to around to head back the way they came.:: No, none around here...
YarnKittymon: JH: He ran away on my birthday once. We were all scared the monsters would get him.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sadly:: I'm sorry to hear that Josh. But from what I can tell Eli is good at taking care of himself. I'm sure he'll be fine. He probably just needed some alone time.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods:: I guess so.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she puts a comforting hand on his shoulder, having no idea what else to say to make him feel better::
