YarnKittymon: : ::it's been a couple days since
the mayor started wiring money for train tickets to the people
lost on the mainland, and over a dozen of them have already returned...some
actually enjoyed their trips, though most are just relieved to
be home...one of the men who comes back goes to visit Libby and
says quite a few things to her before the guard finally escorts
the man out, so when Isaac comes to check on her that morning,
she's wiping tears from her face, looking a little strange without
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly at Libby:: Hey, how you feeling?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles shakily; softly:: A bit of a stomach-ache, but I haven't had breakfast yet.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns; gently:: Then what caused the tears? Is everything ok?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks about ready to start crying again; shakes her head; softly:: Don't worry about it. I'm all right.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: I wish there was more i could do for you...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: No...as long as the baby's okay, I don't mind what they say to me.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she bites her tongue, thinking about yelling at the guards later for letting someone bother Libby in the first place.::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::nods, not really sure what to say::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at Maeve; softly:: How's the shop doing?
Maeve Owens: MV: Everything is going fine.
YarnKittymon: LB: You getting along with Kizzie all right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Yeah, we're doing fine. ::smiles a little::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::they suddenly hear the sound of a dog barking and then soon after Eli runs into the room:: Isaac, Maeve's-- ::he sees Maeve and rolls his eyes, folding his arms:: Well i guess Maeve's fine
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: Why wouldn't she be fine? She was just at the beach, right?
Maeve Owens: MV: Of course I was... ::smiles weakly at Eli::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks a bit annoyed at rushing only to find Maeve there before him, though he's also rather confused that Libby's in the cell since he hadn't stopped to talk to anyone else yet; doesn't take Maeve's hint:: Oh yeah, the beach - and you were just as stubborn and stupid as always
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: How'd you two get separated?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::warns in a soft tone not to keep going:: Eli...
Maeve Owens: MV: Eli wanted to hang out at the beach while I decided it was better if I came home... ::shoots another warning look at Eli::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::Frowns:: What's with you two? She knows Maeve better than i do - and hanging at the beach is never what happens with her ::rolls his eyes again and turns to go:: I'm going home to sleep since i rushed here for nothing
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at Eli; softly:: I'm sorry I teleported you. I didn't mean to.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks at her for a moment:: You did it? Guess that explains why we ended up in-- ::stops and shrugs:: Doesn't matter - i got some good healthy excercise out of it, i guess
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles weakly, hoping Libby hadn't caught on to her lie::
YarnKittymon: LB: Where *was* the beach, Maeve?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::heads off::
Maeve Owens: MV: It was just, um, two hours away?
YarnKittymon: LB: But Becky said it was off the island.
Maeve Owens: MV: Two hours away from the island...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::doesn't question Maeve further::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: Maybe we should leave you to get some rest, Libby - i should probably go check on Eli
Maeve Owens: MV ::looking relieved, she nods:: Yeah...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly, sounding a little frustrated:: Yeah, all right. Thanks for checking in on me.
Quantum Catz: IS: I'm sure things'll be sorted soon, Libby
YarnKittymon: LB: You're probably right. ::tries to smile:: Thanks.
Maeve Owens: MV: Anything you want us to bring you on our next visit? A nail file or a saw? ::grins::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: No thank you; I'd just be caught soon afterwards.
YarnKittymon: Although a regular pie might be good...hold the file.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: I guess we can see what we can do
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laugh lightly:: I'll put an order into Becky since anything I make might could melt the bars.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::watches the two leave, and then sits back on her cot, not picking up her book::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::once they've left, Isaac glances at Maeve:: You going to come see Eli with me? He looked a bit annoyed at you
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles weakly:: Yeah... I guess I should, um, speak to him...
Quantum Catz: IS: We never really did get round to you telling me what happened, did we?
Maeve Owens: MV: No.... ::she sighs:: But that's probably what Eli is annoyed about so you're probably going to get an ear full when find him.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: Let me guess - it went kind of along the lines of you guys getting in trouble and then not being able to agree on what to do?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Gee.... am I that predictable?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: You both are
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looking slightly amused, she shakes her head:: Then I guess I'll just have to work on not being so predictable.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: I'd get the inevitable argument with Eli out of the way first
Maeve Owens: MV: ::grins:: Oh so you want me to somehow get into more trouble with him before I change my ways?
Quantum Catz: IS: From the look on his face, you're already in trouble
Maeve Owens: MV: Well it's not *entirely* my fault... I didn't ask Becky to come get me.
Quantum Catz: IS: Though knowing Eli, it's probably all your fault he had to fly back here and not get picked up by becky himself
Maeve Owens: MV: ::winces:: Yeah that would be my fault... ::sighs::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles and puts his arm around Maeve:: Don't worry - his bark's worse than his bite - and he did fly all this way - he must care something about you since he already knew you were in hospital and could've just waited
Maeve Owens: MV: Ha. More like he either did it for you or to get as far away from me as possible.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs as they reach his house and he opens the door:: I guess you'll see soon enough
Maeve Owens: MV: ::immediately looks up just in case he's perched somewhere up high and is just waiting to dive bomb her in hopes that she just might be coming through the door::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::is making noise in the kitchen as he gets himself something to eat, slamming things down on the counter::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she winces:: Maybe I should be worried about him throwing things at me instead.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: I'm sure it'll be fine
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles weakly back then waits for him to go into the kitchen first::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::just as Isaac's heading for the kitchen, Eli appears holding a sandwich:: Real food's good - been living off of animals on the way back here
Maeve Owens: MV: ::winces:: Sorry.... I had an IV? ::coughs:: Thanks for, um, saving me... again... Sorry you hurried back for nothing.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::rolls his eyes:: I wouldn't have needed to if you'd just listened to me in the first place
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns; and just a tad on the defensive:: Well, if I had then maybe it would have been you in the hospital instead.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::glares at her:: I told you - i can look after myself better than you can - how many things do you think can actually get through dragon skin?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smirks:: I can look out after myself just fine... it's only when you add other people into the equation that things seem to go wrong. ::she sighs, shaking her head:: There's no use arguing about it anymore. I can't go
Maeve Owens: back and change it.
Quantum Catz: EK: You didn't get shot till i left you remember? And if you'd just gone when i told you to, we wouldn't have even been there in the first place
Quantum Catz: EK: I'm not arguing - i'm just trying to let you know how stupid you were so you can think about changing that next time
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: That's enough Eli....
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Sorry if I was only trying to *not* get *you* shot.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::rolls his eyes:: But i did - and funnily enough - i didn't end up in hospital over it
Maeve Owens: MV: ::rolls her eyes too:: Yeah, yeah, the wonders of your dragon form. The next time I'm being chased by the New York Police I'll know who to look up.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::sighs:: I'm going to bed ::heads towards the stairs::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::murmurs:: Good night.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::mutters:: I should've just left you in the hospital - 's not like it would've done you any harm even if Becky hadn't shown
Quantum Catz: EK: ::starts to head up the stairs::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks too defeated to even mutter a reply::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly at Maeve once Eli's gone:: You know, one day, one of you is going to admit you're wrong to the other and i'll probably throw a party
Maeve Owens: MV: Don't go spending money on party decorations cause it's not likely. ::she bites her lip::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::gives her a hug:: Don't worry about it - i've had worse arguments with him
Maeve Owens: MV: ::returns the hug; quietly:: I should have been the one to get *him* home in one piece...
Quantum Catz: IS: When we were back in Saxton he ran off and i was terrified he was going to get himself caught by the monsters - but he wasn't - i've kind of learned to accept that he just doesn't need to be protected like that...and he wouldn't
Quantum Catz: like it if i did
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sighs:: I know... it's just that... I guess maybe I feel bad because it was my fault we got into this mess in the first place and he's never going to like me.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: And maybe I'm just a little afraid that he's right... that one day everyone is going to realize I'm not worth the trouble.
Quantum Catz: IS; ::hesitates:: You know what i got from what he was saying? Maybe i'm just giving him too much credit...but it sounded like he was annoyed that you wouldn't let him protect you
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she pulls away to look up at him:: Then I guess I'm not worth the trouble then because we're going to have problems if he thinks I'm going to let anyone "protect" me. ::smiles a little::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: Yeah, i've already learnt that one - but i guess it makes me feel better to know that he wants to look out for you
Maeve Owens: MV: Its better than him dive bombing me I guess.
