YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods, interested, and makes light conversation until they have to stop in a small town for the night. As promised, it's not until the next afternoon that they start to approach the forest where someone was murdered. Kizzie probably senses something's a bit strange, maybe in the trees themselves, but there's certainly no signs of distress::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::softly:: There's something different from normal...i can't explain it though...there doesn't seem to be anything *wrong*
YarnKittymon: GU: ::slowly:: Do you want me to take you to...the tree I was talking about earlier?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::takes a deep breath and nods:: We might as well get it over with
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods, slipping off the horse as the forest trail grows wilder and the branches hang lower; after they walk for a couple minutes Kizzie sees a simple wooden cross set under a tree, and Guy motions, though she probably didn't need his help to figure it out::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::moves towards the tree, though when she reaches it, she hesitates to touch it::
YarnKittymon: GU: You all right, Miss MacKenzie?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::closes her eyes and murmurs:: You'd better behave when i do this ::touches the tree, using her powers to try and see it's memories; if guy's looking, he'll probably see her hand start to merge with it's bark and it's branches seem to move towards her::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::steps forward, afraid the tree's going to kill her, too, but then he decides she knows what she's doing::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree's memories are kind of confusing, not as strong as most trees', mainly focused on a woman who comes to water it::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::tries to make it focus more on the woman, to see if there's something about her, if she maybe has a power like Kizzie's::
YarnKittymon: : ::Kizzie gets the idea that the woman's movements are slow, and then the tree tries to close further around Kizzie's arm, not wanting her energy at all, but just water::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::fights against the tree, incase it tries to get water from her arm; though she's rather confused that it's not trying to drain her::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree lets Kizzie go easily, seeming to lose interest in her::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::clenches and unclenches her hand as she turns back to Guy, frowning::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::approaches Kizzie; quietly:: What's the matter?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::smiles weakly:: It's the first tree i've ever known that hasn't wanted me...there's a woman comes to water it...it may just have been trying to protect her
YarnKittymon: GU: Hm. Should we track down this woman, then?
Quantum Catz: KZ: Well it's not like the tree knows where she lives...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::frowns:: Then what should we do? Bring it water?
Quantum Catz: KZ: Or we could wait till she does..
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods:: All right. It doesn't look like rain. You want to just set up camp here?
Quantum Catz: KZ: She hasn't been here today...we might not have to wait long
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods, pulling out a crossbow from his saddlebag:: All right. Reckon we should stay out of sight?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::looks at the crossbow:: She's an old woman, i doubt she'll try to fight you
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: You don't know who might be accompanying her, Miss MacKenzie, and unless you can get the trees to fight for you instead, I don't want to risk it.
Quantum Catz: KZ: Well not that one maybe...i don't know if she's affected the others...
YarnKittymon: GU: Care to try?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::looks at Guy for a moment and then moves to one of the trees near the first one, reaching out and doing the same as with the first::
YarnKittymon: : ::this tree seems a bit confused, too, but after a while Kizzie can pull out the kind of memories she was expecting, though Kizzie may not want to see them::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::winces but wants to know what happened::
YarnKittymon: : ::Kizzie can see a young man coming at the supposed killer tree, with an axe, and then the tree's branch suddenly bends down, more quickly than even a tree bending in the wind would be capable of. The man falls down and doesn't move::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::pulls back quickly from the tree, looking pale::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::hurries to Kizzie's side, frowning:: Is everything all right?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::murmurs, weakly:: It must be that woman's influence...they just don't do things like that naturally...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: So I should leave my crossbow out after all?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::softly:: A crossbow wouldn't be much use against a tree
YarnKittymon: GU: ::smirks:: No, but if I take the wicked woman as a hostage...trees can't *walk,* can they?
Quantum Catz: KZ: Well, no but it's roots are beneath your feet right now...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::takes a step backwards instinctively, then smiles weakly:: How far should we go, then?
Quantum Catz: KZ: You wouldn't be able to take the woman hostage from there anyway - especially if she can make the tree grow like i could
YarnKittymon: GU: ::frowns:: So should I just count on you to...reason with it?
Quantum Catz: KZ: Or with her - it would probably only react to a threat - you don't even know that she's trying to do anything intentionally. You could just try and talk to her first
YarnKittymon: GU: ::pockets his crossbow, frowning, and glancing back at the tree:: Whether I'm a threat or not, the tree can't be counted on to know that.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::kneels down to touch one of the plants growing at her feet, to see if anything other than the trees have been affected by this woman::
YarnKittymon: : ::the plants don't seem out of the ordinary in the slightest::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::tenses, looking around; whispers:: I think someone's coming.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::stands up again, looking around::
YarnKittymon: : ::the very leaves on the apparent killer tree tremble as a slow, older woman with a watering can walks carefully along the path, looking around; she's dabbing at her eyes with her free hand, and she stops still when she sees the strangers in front of the tree::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::looks over at the tree, remembering how slowly time passes for them and how quickly it can seem that humans age and then vanish from their lives::
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman finally draws a few steps forward, and then cries out in a cracking voice:: It'd be best if you'd stand aside!
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::softly:: Why? ::wondering if the woman's trying to threaten or warn them::
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman cringes:: He might still be skittish...
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::glances at Guy and then says softly:: You mean from the man with the axe?
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman nods, tears in her eyes:: You won't tell anyone?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::frowns but doesn't speak yet::
Quantum Catz: KZ: Is it because of you? Do you have some power over it?
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman shakes her head:: Not exactly...Edgar just...he doesn't want to leave me all alone...
Quantum Catz: KZ: But...how...? I've never seen...trees only usually react like that to me...
YarnKittymon: : ::softly:: He's not a tree. Not really.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::frowns, thinking of her time connected to the tree:: Then...what...?
YarnKittymon: : ::looks down; quietly:: My husband could inhabit anything he pleased, bring it to life if he liked. Before he passed away, he managed to put his spirit into the tree...and he's still there, I know it.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::softly, glancing at Guy:: That would explain why he didn't want my power like normal trees, i guess ::doesn't really know what to say::
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman wipes her eyes again, looking at Guy as well:: You wouldn't really lock me up, would you?
YarnKittymon: : ::the ground beneath Guy's feet starts to shake, and the detective steps back, frowning:: We shouldn't talk here, ma'am.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::looks down at the ground, feeling sorry for the man, living the long solitude of the trees::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::cringes; quietly:: You need to come forward, ma'am. Go to trial. Perhaps they'll rule it was self-defense.
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman quickly shakes her head:: Who would believe me?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::softly:: How could she be blamed? She wasn't even here when it happened
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: Well, if the blame falls on the tree it will surely be chopped down.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::winces, looking down::
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman shakes her head:: No...I'll go to prison...just don't let them kill him.
YarnKittymon: : ::the leaves of the tree suddenly move as though there's a breeze::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::doesn't say anything, though she thinks that if she had to live like that man, a part of her would rather die::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: Can you talk to him? Either one of you?
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman instantly shakes her head:: I just know he's there.
Quantum Catz: KZ: I could try, maybe...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods:: Perhaps you should.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::moves back over to the tree, rather more uncertainly now that she thinks there's a human spirit within it, and places her hand on its bark, trying to merge with it like before::
YarnKittymon: : ::it still feels very strange to Kizzie--not all that much like a tree--and one of the tree's branches reach out towards the old woman, taking her hand::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::focusses on trying to find a voice, a stream of thoughts, something to communicate with::
YarnKittymon: : ::she suddenly hears the name "Willa" as clearly as if it had been spoken::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::speaks the word without even thinking, partly out of surprise at hearing it::
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman cries out as though she was hurt:: Edgar?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::looks over at the woman for a moment, looking sad, and then turns back to try and concentrate on the man's thoughts::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree just seems to want to take Willa into his arms and protect her, and be with her forever::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::can't help but think that his forever will last a lot longer than Willa's, though she suddenly wonders if he can hear her thoughts and regrets it::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree suddenly shudders, and Kizzie's sure he doesn't want to live without her::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::steps back a step when the tree shudders, then stops himself; quietly:: Is everything all right, Kizzie?
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa caresses the tree branch in her hand as though it were her husband's hand::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::'what else do you expect to do? do you know how long trees live can live for?'; sighs:: He's not going to hurt us, if that's what you mean
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods, frowning:: What did he say?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::softly:: He wants to protect her, he doesn't want to live without her...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::cringes; quietly:: That might not be so hard...
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa gasps in horror:: You can't!
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::winces, looking down::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree asks if Willa's all right, if she's going to be in trouble::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::weakly, 'i don't know, i guess someone has to be'::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree timidly asks if he can take the blame, since it was his fault, after all::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::tells him that they might well cut him down if he does::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree's limbs seem to bow, but he says he'll do it, if that's the only way::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::doesn't know what other way there could be, human law has never been a huge interest to her::
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa quietly asks:: What's he saying?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::softly:: He says he's willing to take the blame...
YarnKittymon: : ::tears come to Willa's eyes:: He wasn't...he didn't want to, but he didn't want to die...
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree softly thinks he doesn't want the tree who's hosted him for so long to die either::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::sighs and murmurs, this time out loud:: Trees live and die, they have no will to fight for their life like that
YarnKittymon: GU: ::cringes; quietly:: I'm fairly certain...I could exorcise him without hurting the tree. But I don't suppose that would appease the townspeople, unless of course they're superstitious.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::sighs, not saying anything::
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa nods, cringing; soberly:: I guess we could try...if there's no other way...::looks at Kizzie pleadingly::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::asks the man if he wants to try::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree softly asks Kizzie to tell Willa he loves her::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::murmurs:: He says he loves you, Willa
YarnKittymon: : ::the old woman starts to cry, and suddenly she goes over to the tree, hugging its trunk::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::moves closer to Kizzie; softly:: Are you up to playing dress-up?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::looks over at Guy:: Dress up?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: They already know me as a detective, in town. I doubt they'd accept me as an exorcist too. But if you impressed them, they might believe you were doing it.
Quantum Catz: KZ: What d'you mean 'impressed them'? I'm not the most outgoing of people...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::smirks:: Mystics don't have to be. We could stop by a town, dress you like a gypsy or something, see if they buy it.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::looks at the tree again for a moment and then slowly pulls her arm away from it, disconnecting herself::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: Or we could just let them chop down the tree after all, but I don't reckon you'd like that.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::shrugs:: For all we know, it might get cut down anyway...i'd rather try something than just let it happen
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: I only know how to remove him from the tree, most likely.
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa softly says:: If the tree doesn't die, at least I'll have *something* to remember him by..
Quantum Catz: KZ: Well maybe they'll listen to you if you say it's been exorcised and everything's okay now
YarnKittymon: GU: ::cringes:: I don't think we could do that without a show of some sort. I suppose if someone...harmed the tree and it didn't retaliate, perhaps they'd believe us...
Quantum Catz: KZ: If you harmed it...it might try to reach for me if i was close enough...but i guess if i stayed back...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: I can walk Miss Willa back to town, if you'd like to go further away. ::frowns:: Should I exorcise him now?
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa looks at Kizzie helplessly::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::softly:: So there's no way you can put on a show? I really don't think they'll believe it if I do it, but if you do, they might not even have to harm the tree for proof.
Quantum Catz: KZ: I...well...do you think just being able to merge with the tree would be enough?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks a little puzzled:: What do you mean?
Quantum Catz: KZ: If someone saw me merging with the tree and i said i'd exorcised it...
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods, frowning:: They might even know your name from the radio commercials.
Quantum Catz: ((she has radio commericals? hehe))
YarnKittymon: ((Probably the mayor tried a couple, though that's not all that well-thought-out, since people can't exactly bring their prized rosebushes to Marquis for her to heal them...I guess his idea was that gardeners or whoever should move to town ;) ))
Quantum Catz: ((lol))
Quantum Catz: KZ: Do you think that would be enough?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods:: I hope so, anyway. Come on; let's try.
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa keeps close to Guy, wiping her eyes::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::follows them, quietly::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::suddenly pauses; quietly:: Perhaps it would be best if I banished his spirit now, before there's people around. I could put on a show when the townspeople are there, but you'd at least get to say goodbye to him.
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa trembles, looking at Kizzie:: What do you think?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::soflty:: Maybe it would be better with no one else around...
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa nods; softly:: All right, then.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::walks back to the tree; softly:: You'll have to tell me if it works anyway, Miss MacKenzie.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::nods, though she's uncertain about staying near the tree during the exorcism in case it is hurt::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::stands near the tree; quietly:: Miss Willa, let me know when you're ready.
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa wipes her eyes:: It won't...he won't suffer, will he?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: I don't think so.
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa nods; after a moment, she picks up her forgotten watering can and waters the tree at its base; it's not enough water to really make a difference in such a large tree, but Kizzie can sense the appreciation anyway::
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa whispers something to the tree and then steps back, nodding wordlessly::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::frowns:: I hope this works. ::puts both his hands on the tree and closes his eyes::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::looks up at the tree, a bit nervously::
YarnKittymon: : ::very suddenly, the tree reaches out towards Kizzie, not trying to drain her, just wanting to know she's there::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::jerks back a bit until she realises the tree's intentions and she moves closer to it::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree seems like an ordinary tree now; it still has some memories that don't fit in with being a tree--memories left over from its human--but it senses Kizzie and seems to draw near to her::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::softly:: I'm pretty sure he's gone now
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa starts to sob, turning away::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quickly:: He didn't suffer, did he? Near as you can tell?
Quantum Catz: KZ: Well i don't think the tree did...and that was the only body he had
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods, looking back at Willa:: Please try to get ahold of yourself. It wouldn't do for you to look upset at all, when we return.
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa nods, drying her eyes and trying to prevent more tears from falling::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::after a couple minutes of looking at the tree, he abruptly turns to walk back towards town::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::touches the tree one more time, to make sure that it's okay::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree really doesn't seem the worse for its possession, and it seems healthy::
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa follows Guy, trying not to cry::
YarnKittymon: : ::they arrive in town in good time, and most of the townspeople seem suspicious when Guy explains the whole situation, but the town mayor agrees to come along and see if Kizzie can, in fact, force the evil ghost out of the tree::
YarnKittymon: : ::Willa stays back at home, not able to go back to the tree just yet::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::stops in front of the tree and waits for Kizzie to do her stuff::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::glances over at Guy for a moment and then reaches out to touch the tree; the tree's bark merges with her hand, brown tendrils growing up her arm right to her elbow. She doesn't say anything but she wills the trees branches to whip around in the air::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree obeys without a semblance of a second thought, and the townspeople stand back, rather puzzled and some, frightened::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::lets the branches move around for a minute or so and then wills them to slow until they're back to normal and then she pulls her hand away, stumbling a bit::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::hurries forward to catch Kizzie, not sure if her stumbling is part of the show...or if his haste to reach her side is, for that matter; quietly:: Well? Did it work?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::glances at the people and then silently nods:: It won't hurt anyone again
YarnKittymon: : ::the mayor looks instantly convinced, but the other townspeople seem to have their doubts:: How do we know?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::sharply:: I guess you can trust someone who can talk with trees.
YarnKittymon: : You don't think she'd just take their side?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::looks down, not wanting to get involved in an argument about this; softly:: It won't hurt anyone, i promise
YarnKittymon: : ::coldly:: And if it does?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::winces and then says:: Then threaten it and see - i'll even go back into town so you know i'm not controlling it
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods:: Someone, take her back. I'll go too if you'd like.
YarnKittymon: : ::the cold townsperson seems to be amused by this idea, and he pulls out a book of matches:: All right.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::can't help but look at the matches, wide-eyed::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::cringes, nodding:: As long as you only burn part of a branch. Someone, fetch a pail of water.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man shrugs:: Sure.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::bites her lip to keep from saying anything and starts to walk back to town, not wanting to be anywhere near when the man starts his test::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man seems to think he's rather daring as he lights one of the tree's lower leaves on fire, watching as the branch lights up::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tree can't sense Kizzie, so it doesn't try to reach out to her, and stays still::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::once he thinks the townspeople are satisfied, he douses the branch:: Happy? It's all over now. Thank Miss MacKenzie if you see her on your way back to town, all right?
YarnKittymon: : ::the townspeople slowly file back to town; Guy refuses the mayor's payment::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::is tempted to go back to the tree when she sees people coming back, but she doesn't want them to think that she's doing anything suspicious so she remains in town::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::brings his horse this time as he comes along with the townspeople; puts his face close to Kizzie and whispers:: We can circle around town and return to the tree if you like.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::hesitates, and then nods::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::helps Kizzie onto his horse and then gets up himself, and rides as he said he would; it's about an hour before they make it back to the tree, which is no longer smouldering::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::winces when she sees the tree and its branches move towards her. A part of her still gets afraid when she remembers the way it used to be and she hesitates for a moment before she moves towards it::
Quantum Catz: (("it" being her power and her life))
YarnKittymon: GU: ::stays back with the horse, silently watching::
Quantum Catz: ((the first it anyway))
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::touches the tree and this time it quickly reaches out to draw on her powers; she winces and closes her eyes and soon the branch starts to heal over, new shoots starting to spout out along it to replace the leaves::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::watches in silent amazement, a bit of a smile on his face::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::has to push with her free hand to get the tree to let go and takes a few faltering steps backward::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::jumps off the horse and catches Kizzie; quietly:: Are you all right?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::nods, rubbing at her eyes:: I've healed worse, it can just be a bit tiring
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: That was splendid, though. I'm sorry I hadn't seen you work before.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::smiles weakly:: That's just when there's something to heal, most of the time i'm just tending to already healthy things, at least i am after i've been in a place for a while
YarnKittymon: GU: ::smiles:: Still. Is everything all right now? Should I get you back home?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::shrugs and smiles slightly:: Well the tree's fine - i don't think there's much else i could do here
YarnKittymon: GU: ::moves to help Kizzie back onto the horse:: Then let's hurry back. We can make it back before the afternoon tomorrow.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::nods:: Okay
YarnKittymon: GU: ::kicks the horse's ribs lightly to get it moving, then quietly asks:: What would you think if I came back to Marquis to visit again?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::smirks slightly:: Well i wouldn't go out of my way to force you to leave town
YarnKittymon: GU: ::laughs:: I'm afraid I don't have any sick plants, though.
Quantum Catz: KZ: There's plenty of plants in Marquis for me to deal with
YarnKittymon: GU: ::smiles:: I didn't mean that quite the way it sounded, anyway. But honestly, I've enjoyed this trip...though I still feel bad about that poor woman.
Quantum Catz: KZ: I'd've felt worse for the man if he'd stayed in that tree
YarnKittymon: GU: Really? At least he was still alive.
Quantum Catz: KZ: Trees can live a long time though and it's a very...solitary...way to live
YarnKittymon: GU: Still, I'd rather be lonely than *nothing.* Surely you wouldn't mind being a tree, would you?
Quantum Catz: KZ: I think i would mind, really - i've had enough of being lonely to last a lifetime
YarnKittymon: GU: ::frowns:: I'm sorry to hear that, Miss MacKenzie. I...suppose I understand, though. I know I don't want to live to lose someone else dear to me.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::shrugs:: I was scared of my power for a long time - you don't make many friends when you're spending your time hiding from plant life
YarnKittymon: GU: ::smiles:: You could have moved to the desert. There's no plants to worry about there, right?
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::chuckles:: It worked out in the end anyway
YarnKittymon: GU: Anyway, there's powers worse than yours for making friends, believe me.
Quantum Catz: KZ: I'm sure there are - people can be rather cruel toward those who're different in some way
YarnKittymon: GU: It's not terrible here, but there's still powers that are frightening. I suppose on the mainland it's considerably worse.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::softly:: It can be
YarnKittymon: GU: Well, enough about that. You have friends now.
Quantum Catz: KZ: A few, although the best friend i had on the island moved away from where we used to live before i came back
YarnKittymon: GU: ::frowns:: Oh? You know where she is, though, right? If not I could find her for you.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::smiles weakly:: *He*, and yeah, he came to see me when he found out i was back
YarnKittymon: GU: I guess you could move to live closer to him?
Quantum Catz: KZ: I'd rather not get in the way - he has a family now and i'm sure they take up a lot of his time
YarnKittymon: GU: Oh. I'm sorry...well, not sorry for him, but...that must have been a shock.
Quantum Catz: KZ: I didn't have feelings for him in that way, if that's what you mean...to be honest, the fact that i didn't was part of the reason i decided to stay with my family, i would never have wanted to hurt him... ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: That was thoughtful of you.
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::smiles weakly:: I'm sure you don't want to be hearing my life story anyway, it's not exactly a rousing comedy
YarnKittymon: GU: I don't mind. I just hope I'm not upsetting you.
Quantum Catz: KZ: It's all over now, getting upset won't change much
YarnKittymon: GU: ::nods; quietly:: I always try to live with no regrets.
Quantum Catz: KZ: Isn't always easy though
YarnKittymon: GU: ::quietly:: No, it's not. ::sighs slightly, and lapses into silence::
Quantum Catz: KZ: ::doesn't say anything else either::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::only makes small talk until they reach Marquis the next day; once he drops Kizzie off, he pays her a gold as he promised, and quietly says:: I'll be in town until tomorrow morning, although you're probably tired of me.
