YarnKittymon: ::the grassy center of Marquis
is half-covered with folding chairs, and the raised concrete area
in the center is strewn with flowers. A rather homely young woman
in thick glasses--the town clerk--is standing in front of the
platform, in turns smiling to herself and quickly reading over
the pages of notes she has in front of her. Every time she looks
out at the gathering crowd, growing larger every minute, it seems,
she feels more nervous, and grows more determined not to ruin
this for the happy couple::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she's unusually quiet and rather distant towards both Isaac and Josh since she doesn't know how to act around them anymore without upsetting Eli.::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::stays with his family::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::hasn't really spoken much to any of them, looking a bit sullen::
YarnKittymon: TH: ::despite his attempts to seem tough, he already looks like he's about to cry, though Becky and Toby haven't come into sight yet; he squeezes his wife's hand every so often::
Maeve Owens: SH: ::she looks just as emotionally as her husband and she squeezes his hand in return::
Maeve Owens: PH: ::he's sitting beside his parents with a content look on his face::
Quantum Catz: LX: ::is just hoping that everything will work out for Becky and her brother::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is sitting next to Jack, briefly and silently praying that Toby will won't hurt Becky again::
YarnKittymon: : ::the clerk finally goes up to the platform and waits for the bride and groom to come::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::comes down the aisle first, smiling at his parents, and climbs the steps to the small platform, so everyone can see him; he's dressed in a fine suit--fancier than probably anyone there, excepting his family, has seen him wear--and he looks just very faintly nervous::
YarnKittymon: CR: ::smiles widely to see Toby, and leans against Clayton, taking his hand, sure they'll have a real wedding of their own once they're home again::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is wearing a simple white dress which accentuates her figure and probably makes her look far prettier than she's ever tried to look before; her hair is tied up with some tendrils falling down over her face. She looks rather nervous at first but as she starts to walk she smiles at her friends and then at Toby and seems just to be happy to be there::
Maeve Owens: CY: ::he has dark circles under his eyes from a restless night of dealing with nightmares, but he seems to be better this morning as he gazes down at Christa with a promising smile. He'd do anything she wanted::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::his face lights up when he sees Becky--a hundred times prettier than any woman he's known--and he takes her hand to help her up the stairs, never mind that she probably doesn't need it::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::when Toby and then Becky both appear Isaac smiles and turns to say something to Maeve but, considering how distant she'd been since he said he wanted to cool it a bit for Eli's sake, he instead sighs and turns back to the wedding::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::takes his hand and smiles::
YarnKittymon: : ::the clerk smiles widely to see the two so happy, and she speaks loudly enough, though her voice shakes a little::
YarnKittymon: We are gathered here today before the town of Marquis to unite the two of you in the honorable institution of marriage.
YarnKittymon: Do you each come here of your own free will to be joined together as man and wife?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods earnestly, looking first at the clerk, then at Becky:: Of course I do.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: I do too
YarnKittymon: : And does anyone here object to this union? ::looks out at the crowd with a rather cold look, and it's obvious that anyone who does is taking his life into his own hands::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::is sitting with his arms folded, though he couldn't stop himself from smiling when he saw how beautiful and happy Becky looked::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::is smiling warmly, too, though she's sitting next to Dominick, and if he *did* object, the clerk wouldn't be the only one giving him grief::
YarnKittymon: : ::when the clerk sees that no one's going to object, she smiles again, rather nervously, and looks at Toby::
YarnKittymon: Do you, Tobias Hamilton, take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife, and, forsaking all others, promise to love, comfort, and cherish her from this day forward?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes the wedding ring out of his front pocket, very gently taking Becky's hand in one of his own and slipping the ring onto her ring finger; looking at Becky with nothing but happiness in his face:: I do.
YarnKittymon: : ::the clerk smiles weakly at Becky:: And do you, Becky Mitchell, take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband, and, forsaking all others, promise to love, comfort, and cherish him from this day forward?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::takes Toby's ring and slips it onto his finger, sure that, whatever happens, he is the only man she wants:: I do
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles at Becky, wanting to hug her right there and then::
YarnKittymon: : ::the clerk feels almost as though she's interrupting to continue, and she says, nervously:: I want to digress for just a second, and have you two take each other's hands, and look down at them, please.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the woman for a moment, a bit bemused and then looks down at hers and Toby's hands as she asked, still smiling::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::has to force himself to look down from Becky's radiant beauty to her hands, though they're beautiful as well, and the smile doesn't leave his face::
YarnKittymon: : ::the clerk clears her throat, and then recites:: These hands you hold on your wedding day are the hands of your wife, your husband, tender and sincere and vibrant with love.
YarnKittymon: These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future, as together you laugh and cry, and together you share your innermost secrets and dreams.
YarnKittymon: These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes: tears of sorrow and tears of laughter and joy.
YarnKittymon: These are the hands that will comfort you in illness, and hold you when you are grieving.
YarnKittymon: These are the hands that will take you anywhere you ask to go, and make you all you could ask for.
YarnKittymon: These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness, as you promise your love and commitment to one another, all the days of your lives.
YarnKittymon: : ::the clerk clears her throat lightly, grinning:: Now, by the power vested in me by the city of Marquis, I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss your bride.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::doesn't need to be told twice; he draws Becky near to him and kisses her gently::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::kisses him back and she can't help but grin when she pulls away::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is smiling widely, too, and can't bring himself to let go of her hand::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::smiles to see the two of them looking so happy; hesitates for a moment and then reaches down to touch the ground and a handful of flowers growing near the platform rise up a few inches, blooming far brighter than normal; it's probably more of a present to the flowers than the couple but Kizzie doesn't really mind::
YarnKittymon: : ::the clerk is thrilled that she didn't stumble over her words:: Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Mr. and Mrs. Toby Hamilton.
YarnKittymon: : ::the crowd rises up as Toby and Becky make their way down the aisle--Toby careful not to step on the flowers, and the smile he flashes at Kizzie tells her he, at least noticed--then he turns back to his wife, still grinning; whispers:: That wasn't so bad, was it?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::turns for a moment to smile at Kizzie as well and then says, smirking:: We both turned up, we both said 'i do' and neither of us tripped up over anything. ::chuckles:: Yep, i think it went pretty well
YarnKittymon: TY: ::once they've made it a distance away from the green, he kisses Becky again; then, softly:: There's one thing wrong with wedding ceremonies. I guess they make you promise to love your wife, but they don't ask if you *do.*
Quantum Catz: BM: I think they kinda assume you wouldn't be getting married if you didn't ::she thinks of Lu for a second but refuses to let that ruin her day::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: I don't know; I might just be marrying you for the trips to Europe or whatever.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: So that's all you want me for, is it? Ah well, i just want you cos you're handy at fixing things
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still smiling:: I love you so much, Becky. ::looks ready to kiss her again, but he holds off:: I wouldn't want to spoil your make-up for the pictures...although you're beautiful either way.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: You don't look so bad yourself, all dressed up
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: I thought about a T-shirt, like when we met, you know.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: Well at least there's more people here than normal who would've known who Linkin Park are
YarnKittymon: : ::they reach the little park area that Kizzie and Fiona met in, and have several photographs taken; Toby comments that he knows an awful lot of people who will want prints::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a rather modest reception
not long after the wedding, in the movie theater, with all the
chairs cleared out; there's not all that much in the way of decoration,
but there's a live band (never mind they can't play anything Toby
really likes, though he's grown to appreciate a bit of their "swing"
music) and a dance floor, plus a buffet, with plenty of hot dogs
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is practically attached to Becky's side as they make the rounds of visiting all the guests--though when they get to Dominick and Fiona, he shies back a bit, almost hiding behind his wife::
YarnKittymon: : ::the band starts to play another slow, romantic song, and several couples take to the dance floor::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly, not wanting to think of anything depressing today, but Dominick, although he doesn't really talk to Toby, doesn't bring anything up, which she's grateful for::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::She left Isaac for a moment to escape the tension for a while and possibly to give Eli some breathing room. She's mingled with a few people and is now on her way to get some juice. She's in a pretty green bias-cut dress::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::Harry is dressed as nice as Toby, and his hair is slicked back nicer; he gently takes Maeve's arm and smiles at her; softly:: Would you care to dance? For old times' sake?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::is standing near the food, looking just as sullen as earlier, though he's been watching Maeve most of the time they've been there::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes widen in surprise and she starts to protest but stops herself, smiling instead. Isaac wouldn't be asking anyway because of Eli and he knows Harry is just a friend anyway:: Sure. What happened to Ruby?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::rolls his eyes:: I took Jack up on that free drink he promised a while back, and a few too many more after that. She's still upset.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she winces slightly in pity for him:: Oh, ouch. Sorry to hear that.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shrugs:: Other fish in the sea. ::smiles that handsome smile of his, holding out his hand:: Shall we?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she chuckles, taking his offered hand:: We shall.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::notices Maeve moving to dance with Harry and sighs, wishing he could be dancing with her instead::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::leads Maeve to the dance floor and puts his hand on her waist, dancing properly and quite gracefully::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::as long as she is concentrating more on the conversation then what her feet are doing, she can move quite well; joking.:: You know, I'm still kind of amazed that you're here. I would have thought I'd never see you again.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smiles widely:: I guess I should get out of here, especially if I'm on the outs with Ruby. ::dips her, grinning:: But she's not the only beautiful woman here.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::goes to talk to Dolly and Josh, trying to find a distraction from Maeve and Harry::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::had seen Maeve take to the dance floor with Harry, though he turns his attention to his brother when he comes by:: Is it normal to have ice cream at receptions?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles, shaking her head since she doesn't know where he's going with that last comment:: Well, we could always go with tradition and I could just get you thrown into jail again once the year has almost gone by.
Quantum Catz: IS: I guess if you're Toby and Becky it is
Quantum Catz: IS: ::glances over at Maeve::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::laughs:: Are you saying I should get out of town before Christmas, then?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::follows Isaac's gaze, frowning deeply; softly:: Are you fighting?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shrugs:: If I don't find anything amusing to do before then it might be a good idea.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: No, we're not fighting
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smirks:: You forget; I brought everyone's powers back. A bit of a hero.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: I'll just have to think up a clever way to frame you. People's minds can be changed.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::slowly:: They're friends, right? Maeve and Mr. Chalmers?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smiles as the band segues into a faster song:: You up for this one?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods, smiling:: Are your toes?
Quantum Catz: IS: Yeah, they met each other a long time ago
Quantum Catz: EK: ::is now looking over at his brothers, frowning::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::laughs, drawing Maeve close, and then swinging her around::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: You should ask her to dance when he's done.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::The fast songs are probably her favorite and she does look like she's having a bit of fun::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: Maybe ::glances over at Eli::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::is dancing too quickly to allow for much of any conversation, but he likes that better, in some ways--he doesn't even look around to see if Ruby's jealous::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she doesn't mind the lack of conversation and she's moving easily enough without tripping up::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::changes into a fox and pads forward towards the dance floor, watching Maeve and Harry although Isaac's turned away from him and doesn't notice::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::as much as lifts Maeve a couple times in the dance, though he doesn't quite throw her around like one of the other gentlemen does his partner::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::out of the corner of his eye, glimpses a fox loose in the reception room, and, though he's full of hot dogs, he stalks between legs after it anyway, for the fun of it, and to keep it from disturbing Becky's party::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::doesn't notice Daniel and moves out onto the dancefloor, trying to avoid being stepped on or tripping anyone up::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::a little seed of guilt works its way through all of her fun and at one point her eyes do wander out across the crowd but when Harry lifts her she loses track and never sees Isaac::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::makes his way to the edge of the dance floor, and, while Eli's at the edge, leaps after him, less mindful of the consequences than Eli is::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::when he notices Dan he yelps and leaps forward, trying to avoid having his tail caught. He runs towards Maeve and Harry::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::meows, not sure how to get through the crowd of dancers::
YarnKittymon: : ::one of the women just nudges Eli with her foot, and looks down, intending to apologize for stepping on someone's foot--when she sees the fox, she shrieks::
YarnKittymon: : ::her partner tries to calm her, being more bemused at the sight::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she jumps at the woman's scream and stops moving to look around::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::changes back into his human form, looking like the woman's the one who's upset him:: Would you give it a break already? Can't a guy be a fox if he wants to?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::eyes widen, and he mrrs unhappily, his tail twitching furiously::
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman flushes:: I didn't know foxes danced.
Maeve Owens: PH: ::is sitting on the sidelines and smirks when he sees Eli's wonderful demonstration of his powers::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::mutters:: They don't ::turns to look at Maeve and Harry, his lip curling a bit like he's half about to snarl::
Maeve Owens: CY: ::he too glances up worriedly when he hears the woman scream, although the one he hears in his head doesn't sound a bit like the woman's on the dance floor and he ducks his head for a few moments::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smirks; quietly:: Did you want to cut in?
YarnKittymon: CR: ::takes Clayton's hand in both of hers, looking at him worriedly, silently::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves forward when he realises it was his brother causing the commotion::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she blinks, not understanding Eli's aggressive look and just waits for him start yelling at her. Although she does cast a sarcastic smirk in Harry's direction::
Quantum Catz: EK: No, wanted to suggest to Maeve it might be an idea to put my brother out of his misery before he starts passing it on to everyone else at the party is all ::meets Maeve's eyes for a moment and then turns away, the glare returning for a moment as he glances at Harry::
Maeve Owens: CY: ::he stands up abruptly, forcing a smile to hide the haunted look in his eyes and in a rather strained voice he whispers:: I've got to get some air. ::he squeezes her hand once and waits to see if she'll join him::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods to Eli, instantly dropping Maeve's hand and stepping back from her:: Sure thing, if she'll have him.
YarnKittymon: CR: ::stands up, too, nodding to Clayton and walking out with him; softly:: Are you all right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looking rather confused:: I thought you didn't want me around Isaac or the three of you for that matter?
Maeve Owens: CY: ::another forced smile:: Yeah, just getting a little crowded in there. ::theres a desperation in his eyes that has his whole body screaming for him to get out of there::
Quantum Catz: EK: I can't stand those puppy-dog eyes he gets, he's worse than Josh sometimes ::though he doesn't turn around and it seems like that's about as much of an explanation as he's going to be willing to give to Maeve::
YarnKittymon: CR: ::puts an arm around Clayton, opening the door for him; softly:: It's okay, honey. It's all right.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smirks at Maeve:: Sounds like the young man's giving you a gift, Maeve. I'll see you around, all right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes scan the crowd looking for Isaac since she has no idea what to say to Eli. She doesn't bother to look at Harry; softly:: All right Harry.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::has just caught sight of Eli and is wondering whether to go find out what he was getting up to or to just leave him be for now::
Maeve Owens: CY: ::he takes a deep breath of fresh air then sinks to the ground, intending to pull Christa with him and hold her close::
YarnKittymon: CR: ::follows Clayton to the ground, though her voice shakes slightly as she murmurs:: Clayton, what is it? Are you remembering?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes dart back down to Eli:: Does that mean you wont hate me if I go talk to your brother?
Maeve Owens: CY: ::his eyes squeeze shut briefly and he shushes her gently, drawing her closer to him. They weren't so bad as long as he had her to hold onto. He concentrates on how she feels in his arms and the pain slowly fades::
Quantum Catz: EK: Nah ::turns around and smirks slightly:: Not today anyway ::turns back into a fox and bounds off before she tries to talk to him anymore::
YarnKittymon: CR: ::closes her eyes, wrapping her arms around Clayton, remembering so much of what she's been through, but so glad to have Clayton back for real now::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::nearly jumps after Eli again, but remembers himself in time and starts licking his paw::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she chuckles lightly, shaking her head. Then when she finally realizes she's in the middle of the dance floor by herself she immediately tries to make her way off::
YarnKittymon: : ::the dancers make way for Maeve; though the band's still playing, no one's yet started dancing again after the scene::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::is moving towards Maeve, since he doesn't think he'd be likely to catch his brother::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::when she sees Isaac, the smile she gives him is brighter, happier, than the one she was wearing while dancing with Harry. When she gets to him she reaches for his hand intending to drag him onto the floor:: Eli's given us his
Maeve Owens: permission to each other for the day. I dont intend to waste it. ::she grins, a bit of a twinkle in her eye::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: Really? I was about to ask you what he was up to out there ::squeezes her hand:: We'd better *not* waste it
YarnKittymon: JH: ::was watching his brother, and when he sees him with Maeve, he grins widely::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she laughs, pulling further onto the dance floor:: He was looking to remove a puppy-dog look from someone's face. ::her grin turns a little apologetic::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: What, a guy's not allowed to feel a little bit sad when his girlfriend's off dancing with someone else?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::softly:: I guess I'd be a little bit worried if you weren't... but it was only Harry.
Quantum Catz: IS: You looked pretty happy though
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shrugs, drawing up closer to him; softly:: Having fun and being happy are two different things.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: Do i make you happy?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::without missing a beat:: Yes. ::she looks at him for a moment, then softly:: Do I? Make you happy?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::grins:: Of course you do
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shrugs; half joking:: I was wondering why you were still hanging around.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: Guess there's just something about you...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles, almost leaning in to kiss him but she stops, her eyes darting around like she's suddenly afraid Eli will get mad again::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks around as well and then smiles:: I don't think he's watching, you know
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she starts to again but frowns; quietly:: Is that what this is going to turn into? Us sneaking around?
Quantum Catz: IS: I hope not - i'm hoping he just needs some time
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods, smiling weakly but she doesn't try again since the moment seems broken::
Quantum Catz: IS: I'm sorry...i wish it could be easier
Maeve Owens: MV: It's okay, I guess. ::she tugs on his arm again:: Lets go dance.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: Okay
Quantum Catz: IS: ::leads Maeve onto the dance
YarnKittymon: : ::it's a rather slow song, so even someone with no experience would have little trouble with it::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiling, she just follows his lead::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::didn't get much dancing experience in Saxon but he's coordinated enough to do okay anyway::
Maeve Owens: MV: I noticed that Eli's hand didn't seem to be bothering him all that much today?
Quantum Catz: IS: Yeah - he gave in in the end
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods:: I'm glad to see that he did. It looked like it hurt.
Quantum Catz: IS: I think injuries get more painful for him if he changes - i guess it strains them or something - took him a few hours to give up on being stubborn though ::smirks slightly:: You know you two are quite similar in some ways
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she chuckles a little but it turns to a weak smile:: I don't think it would be wise to tell him that though.
Quantum Catz: IS: I'm sure he'll come round - Josh and Dolly both like you
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: Poor guy, no wonder he's so mad. He's out numbered. ::she frowns::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: I'm the closest thing they really had to a dad, they were so young when he died and before i came here i didn't really have time for anything but them...i guess i can understand him feeling a bit...threatened
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sadly:: And I don't blame him for that. I just wish I knew how to make it easier but theres probably nothing I can do... which leaves me wondering whats going to happen now if... ::she sighs::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs as well and then stops dancing to give Maeve a hug:: It'll be okay ::smiles weakly:: If he was really against you he wouldn't have said it was okay
Maeve Owens: MV: ::lies her head against his chest as her arms go around him:: Yeah but its only for a day and only because I made you sad. ::half joking:: I guess maybe I could do that everyday so that he
Maeve Owens: might feel sorry enough for you to extend it.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: Well he must know that losing you would make me even more miserable so maybe we'll be okay
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she closes her eyes and smiles::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::leans down to kiss her::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she's perfectly happy to return the kiss, even though in the back of her mind she's picturing Eli flying in at any moment to dive bomb her again::
YarnKittymon: : ::the band was winding up the song to start a new, faster one, but the leader sees Maeve and Isaac and holds off a bit::
YarnKittymon: : ::it's almost an hour later before a few members of the party take it upon themselves to arrange the women for the throwing of the bouquet, which, as usual, results in all the women who really are interested in marriage--and some who aren't--being herded onto the dance floor::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::takes to the floor, thinking it all in good fun anyway, and encourages Kizzie to come along::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::shakes her head at Fiona's encouragement - she doesn't like cut flowers so she'd probably get upset if she caught them::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she moves to the floor as well, smiling a bit at all the fuss and doesn't think too much about the true meaning of "catching the boughet". If she did then she might actually have admit to herself that she isn't as frightened of getting married as she had been. She's perfectly happy living in denial for a while longer::
Quantum Catz: LX: ::stays near the edge of the group, not wanting to be knocked over or anything but any of the more desperate women::
YarnKittymon: CR: ::is at the edge as well, though she knows that, bouquet or not, she'll be having a real ceremony soon--provided Clayton can go through with it::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles at the scene; to Becky:: You'd probably better throw it soon; these girls might tackle you.
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she stays on the outskirts, too shy to move on to the floor in case someone should think she was already looking to get married::
Maeve Owens: CY: ::he leans over to whisper to Christa:: You could get out there you know? Then we could just prove to them that the old saying can come true. ::he grins at her::
YarnKittymon: CR: ::grins at him whole-heartedly, and pushes her way past a slighter woman to get a better chance::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smirks:: I'm sure i could teleport away if i had to ::grins at Maeve for a moment and then turns around throughs the bouquet in her friend's direction, though she tries not to make it look too obvious::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she laughs as her arms dart out to catch the bouquet::
YarnKittymon: : ::another woman tries to wrestle it away from Maeve, a little violently, though Christa and the other good-hearted women stay back::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::the woman's sudden attack startles her and her first reaction is to pull it back away from her::
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve pulls free of the woman's grip, and the other girls clap for Maeve::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles as she turns around:: Never thought i'd see Maeve fighting for a bouquet
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs, putting his arm around Becky:: I guess she just saw how happy we are and got jealous.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she blinks at the woman, like she cant really understand what just happened then, turns to glare at Becky and Toby; defensively:: She attacked me! It was a survival instinct!
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm sure it's your turn to get married now anyway ::grins::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins too:: Afraid so, unless you can find someone else here from Coney Island who's older than you.
YarnKittymon: CR: ::looks back at Clayton, shrugging with a smile:: I guess she needed it more anyway. She doesn't even have a ring.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she chances a glance in Isaac's direction, but she quickly averts her gaze, afraid if she lingered too long she might actually blush. Her eyes turn sad for a moment but she pushes the thought back, not going to let it ruin the moment; joking:: How long do I have till *my* wedding bells start ringing... I need to know so I can get out my running shoes. ::she grins::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::is standing with Josh, grinning at Maeve's fighting off the other woman::
Maeve Owens: CY: ::quietly:: Well, then I guess we'll be proving the saying wrong. We could always upstage Toby and Becky and steal their county clerk. ::his eyebrows lift suggestively as he grins widely at her::
Maeve Owens: DK: ::she puts on a happy smile and goes to stand next to her brothers::
YarnKittymon: CR: ::laughs, flinging her arms around Clayton:: I think my mom would want to see it, at least.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: Running into his arms, more like it. ::grinning::
Maeve Owens: CY: ::he holds her tightly; then sighs like he's rather put out:: Awe, okay. If you say so.
YarnKittymon: CR: ::kisses Clayton like she could hardly do just two days ago; this also keeps her from bringing up Clayton's parents::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she rolls her eyes, trying to not appear to be affected by it their teasing:: Don't the two of you have better things to do than torment me? Like, um, cutting the cake?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: We only speak the truth, Maeve - but i guess we could find something else to do with our time
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still grinning:: Yeah--we ought to give you and Isaac a bit of time alone anyway.
Maeve Owens: CY: ::he returns her kiss fervently as he gently cradles her face in his hands::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smirks:: Watch it, or you'll be getting a *second* piece of cake shoved in your face. ::she smiles a bit then turns to run away::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles back at Becky:: I guess she has a point. ::looks towards the cake:: You ready?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs and smiles:: Got nothing else planned for just now
Maeve Owens: MV: ::with a sudden thought for revenge she abruptly turns back around:: Nothing else planned? Aren't you forgetting the garter? I'm sure the guys will be disappointed.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::flushes slightly, looking at Becky:: I didn't figure you'd want to.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::makes a face at Maeve:: I'm sure the guys'll live
Maeve Owens: MV: ::There's a twinkle in her eye that reminds them that they're are messing with the wrong person. She laughs at Becky's face and continues on her way back to Isaac::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles, leaning close to Becky and whispering:: Let's hurry up and get the cake out of the way, and then we can probably slip off before Maeve causes any more trouble. Not that I'm not looking forward to getting that garter off you, but not in public.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: Maeve? Cause trouble? What a suggestion
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: *Well,* if you're not worried, then I'm not either. ::heads towards the rather tall cake anyway, his eyes lingering on the rather detailed bride-groom figure he made for its top::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::grins at Maeve:: You fended off that woman's attack pretty well
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sticks her tongue out at him but grins anyway:: Not you too? It was a basic survival instinct... she practically tried to kill me over this thing! ::she holds up the flowers like she cant understand whats so important::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: I got the feeling Becky wasn't quite playing fair with her throw anyway - i guess the woman had a right to try for it
Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows Toby::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::muttering good naturedly:: Everyone's out to get me.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::picks up the knife to cut the cake; smiles at Becky:: I guess we do this together? I haven't watched any weddings real close.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: Yeah, we even started a society so we could all start working together at it too
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: And i was sitting taking notes - but yeah, pretty sure we do
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she laughs:: I believe it too. ::she shifts her eyes down to the flowers in her hand and distractedly starts to play with them::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::puts Becky's hand on his, and cuts a slice of the cake; by now many of the guests have turned their attention to the couple::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::makes his way over to Isaac and Maeve, grinning at the latter:: I'm sure Isaac would buy flowers for you if you just asked him; you didn't need to fight for them.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::a little exasperated although she's still smiling:: I did *not* fight for them! Someone attacks you and your first *instinct* is to pull away!
Quantum Catz: IS: ::grins:: So you keep saying
YarnKittymon: JH: ::still smiling:: Well, you could've let that other woman have a few of them, anyway. ::thoughtfully:: I guess she doesn't have anyone around to buy her any, though. Maybe I should go ask Mr. Chalmers to go dance with her.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::removes the slice of cake and sets it on a plate, smiling at Becky::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::with a wry smile:: Ha. I fought for these things didn't I? Wasn't about to *give* any of them up.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::makes a little soap and water to clean his fingers; dries them on a napkin, and then breaks off a piece of the cake, gently feeding it to Becky::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: Of course not
Quantum Catz: BM: ::feels a bit silly being fed cake with a bunch of people watching them, so she giggles a bit - glad that she didn't let her worries from the day before ruin things for them::
YarnKittymon: ((the mutual feeding-of-cake to people is at least an American wedding tradition (dunno if you have it in Scotland...traditionally the woman is as likely as not to mash it in her husband's face, though that strikes me as
YarnKittymon: not very nice))
Quantum Catz: ((i dunno if it is here or not - but i think i'd still feel awfully self-conscious even if it was a tradition ;)))
YarnKittymon: ((Well, and Becky definitely would; I was just not sure if you knew what she was expected to do ;) (I have a lot of Catholic relatives so I've been to a lot of weddings ;) ))
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles back at Becky; softly:: Sorry; it's a tradition.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: If i didn't know people were watching, it'd be fine ::feeds a bit of cake to Toby::
YarnKittymon: TY: I think it's supposed to bring good luck or something. ::grins:: And better luck that you didn't make a mess of me; I think my mom smashed it in Dad's face.
YarnKittymon: : ::the guests clap for Becky and Toby::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: Didn't think of that
