Maeve Owens: MV: ::appears once again at Isaac's
door, knocking softly::
YarnKittymon: AN: ::answers the door, looking mildly disappointed that it's Maeve:: Oh, hello.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::is equally disappointed that it's Ann:: Hi. Um, is Isaac around?
AN: ::never thinks of lying about it:: Yeah...come on in. I'm sure he wouldn't mind.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::forces a smile, and steps in:: Thank you.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::had been sitting in the living room talking with Ann, stands up and smiles when he sees Maeve:: Hey
YarnKittymon: AN: ::gently closes the door and looks at the couple, not self-conscious in the least::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiling genuinly this time; quietly:: Hey. I just stopped by for one last farewell before I'm off...
Quantum Catz: EK: ::had been sitting on one of the chairs quietly watching ann and isaac as a fox; jumps off the chair and heads for the stairs, casting a look at Ann that's meant to suggest she do the same, although he doesn't stop to see if she notices::
YarnKittymon: AN: ::frowns, and looks between Isaac and Maeve one last time, then heads for the stairs:: Pardon me; I'd best see how Teddy is.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances over at Isaac:: The poor boy is getting better isn't he?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::nods:: Yeah, he's not fully recovered or anything but he's getting there
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods, genuinly happy he isn't getting worse:: That's good.
Quantum Catz: IS: :rather wryly; sitting down:: You can definitely tell who out of you and Ann Eli wants me to spend time with, though and Josh isn't much better
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles weakly, unsure of how to feel about that:: Sorry if it's causing problems...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::shakes his head:: I'm just a bit fed up with having an animal staring at me all the time. He does it to hide his facial expressions, so you can only tell what he wants you to see
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she winces;: I guess it might be partly my fault. I havent exactly tried to be civil to her...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::Shrugs:: Eli'd probably be like that anyway
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods; quietly:: Probably.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::forces a smile:: So, how have things been?:
Quantum Catz: IS: Okay...Josh's been dragging me out to meet more people which wasn't exactly fun, but i guess i'd have to do it eventually
Maeve Owens: MV: Well, next time tell him to take you somewhere more fun.
Quantum Catz: IS: Ann wanted us all to go on a picnic...but we never quite got round to it...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles weakly:: Aw, that's too bad. But I'm sure Josh can find other things to do.
Quantum Catz: IS: Most likely
Maeve Owens: MV: So, have many people come by asking for your help?
Quantum Catz: IS: Not really, i think it's pretty much spread around Marquis that i'm not...well...just now - there were a couple of people from out of town and i tried but... ::sighs:: It takes a lot out of me - my head was killing me afterwards
Maeve Owens: MV: I guess word has spread. I was just wondering if it was getting any better but then, it's only been a week. ::smiles weakly::
Quantum Catz: IS: Yeah, i'm still getting used to the idea of working as a healer anyway - back home i was so busy with the boat i didn't really use my powers that much
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looking away, she nods::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::notices and sighs:: Sorry - they're the only memories i've got in my head, i'm a bit lacking in up-to-date knowledge
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looking back at him again; quietly:: Then that's better than before? You said there wasn't anything there to begin with, right?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::shrugs:: They're still faded and confused, maybe they're a bit clearer but maybe i'm just making things up in my head from what people have told me
Maeve Owens: MV: Have you told the kids about them? They'd probably help you... and it might help to know....
Quantum Catz: IS: Those memories aren't really important now anyway, though, are they? Saxton's gone
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: Are they important to *you*? Saxton is gone, but your siblings are tied up in those memories.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looking down:: I guess so - i've talked to them a bit about the past...but i've been kind of caught up in trying to get used to the present again
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods, but cant think of anything else to say::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::suddenly:: Do you want to go for a walk? I could do with some fresh air
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances up, then smiles:: Oh? I take it we'll stay clear of any grassy hills then? I can understand if you'd be afraid for you life...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: That's probably a good idea
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she gets up, and moves towards the door:: Maybe if *you* picked the destination this time, danger wont follow.
Quantum Catz: IS: I don't exactly know the area well right now
Maeve Owens: MV: Who cares? Pick a direction. Unless you have something in mind you want to see.. like closed signs on all the stores... and so on. ::grins::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles and then just heads out and away from the house::
YarnKittymon: : ::as they walk down the streets, they hear some rather fast-paced music coming from a building that until recently was vacant::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances towards the building, smiling:: Well, that sounds like a place to find some excitement?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly; jokes:: I'm not so sure - i'm guessing any dancing abilities i had probably went away with the memories
Maeve Owens: MV: ::forces a smile; teasingly:: Who says you had dancing abilities before?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smirks:: That's a sure-fire way to get me dancing, i'm filled with confidence now
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Then think of it as a learning experience.
Quantum Catz: IS: Hey, it's your feet i'll be standing on
Maeve Owens: MV: If you want to give it a try, I'm sure my feet will live.
Quantum Catz: IS: I guess we could at least have a look in
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she chuckles, and leads the way up to the building::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a few dozen couples dancing inside the hardly-renovated building, and there's no cover charge; the drinks flow freely from a makeshift bar, which is how the place can stay open::
Quantum Catz: IS: Seems pretty lively
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods; quietly:: Well, ready to put your feet to the test?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: I guess so...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::chuckles; joking:: Dont let me twist your arm or anything...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::Smiles and moves out to dance::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::follows him out to the dance floor:: Although, come to think of it, this might be even more dangerous than a grassy hill. ::grins::
Quantum Catz: IS: Maybe i should be worrying about my own feet instead of yours then
Maeve Owens: MV: Might be wise. Or better yet, maybe we should warn the crowd about the *two* of us?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: Could be an idea
YarnKittymon: : ::though the band keeps playing upbeat songs, they have to make their way past a few couples who are slow-dancing anyway::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::lets Isaac set their pace, and is at least doing a good job of staying off *his* toes.::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::doesn't go too quickly, since he's still not too sure about his coordination for dancing, but he manages okay::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she just smiles, and tries to have a good time::
Quantum Catz: IS: I guess neither of us are *that* bad after all
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles:: Ssshh, you might bring us bad luck.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: Sorry
YarnKittymon: : ::they have a good time dancing, but the people there get more and more drunk, and it becomes clear that the party probably isn't going to end anytime soon, so they finally have to cut out together::
Quantum Catz: IS: Guess it's probably time to head home anyway
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods; quietly:: It was fun while it lasted though. I thought anyway. ::smiles weakly::
Quantum Catz: IS: Yeah, it was but i guess you'll be wanting some sleep if you're leaving tomorrow
Maeve Owens: MV: Yeah, that'd be wise since I'll be up early getting ready to go. ::sighs::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::Softly:: Are you worried?
Maeve Owens: MV: :she shrugs:: I'm a little worried it wont go as planned, and maybe even more about dealing with the queen. ::laughs quietly::
Quantum Catz: IS: Worried you'll trip her up too?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: No, I'm afraid I might want to hit her.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: I guess you'll just have to try and restrain yourself
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Once, I met up with this actress who thought *she* was the queen of England. I *almost* succeeded in sending her sprawling into the mud. ::smirks:: I was stopped though. Unfortunately.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::chuckles:: What a shame
Maeve Owens: MV: I thought so. At least I got the chance to dump water all over her. But if this queen is half as annoying as she is...I probably wont get close enough to even attempt it. ::sighs::
Quantum Catz: IS: Just remind yourself - she can probably do a lot worse to you if you annoy her, you're probably best leaving her alone
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Aint that the truth.
Quantum Catz: IS: But you think you'll be okay other than that, right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:; I can take care of myself so I'm pretty confident I'll come back in one piece...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks down:: Okay...
Maeve Owens: MV: Although, I guess no one can be certain.. ::before she can talk herself out of it, she draws closer to him, kissing him gently. She doesn't meet his gaze as she pulls away, afraid of what she might find there. She continues to turn away, fully intending to take refuge in her house::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::stops her from turning; smiling slightly but hesitates not sure what to do now that he has stopped her:: Good luck....come back safe...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles slightly in return:: Yeah, I'll...do that...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::leans down to kiss her lightly on the cheek:: I'll see you when you get back then
Maeve Owens: MV: :;her eyes widen, but then she only grins:: Yeah. Just listen out for all the commotion from the queen's arrival. ::quietly:: Good night.
Quantum Catz: IS: 'Night ::smiles at her for a moment, looking a bit uncertain, and then turns to go::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sighing, she heads on into her house::
