~Saturday, July 22, 1933~

YarnKittymon: : ::the shop has been doing pretty poorly since Libby got back, and the poor woman's exhausted from the baby. Right now little Milo is in a basket in the corner of the shop as Libby's absently arranging a new shipment of shirts::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she's at the register setting up their cash drawer::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::walks into the shop, looking rather more irritated than usual::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances up, and looks rather surprised to see Eli; mutters:: Okay, you look irritated, what did I do this time?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up absently:: Welcome to Libby's--oh, hi, Eli.
Quantum Catz: EK: :: smirks for a moment:: Wasn't you this time - the guards have been hassling me
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Join the club.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns silently::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: If we're lucky they'll be smart, and just forget the whole thing. Although, I think we might have wounded their pride.
Quantum Catz: EK: They didn't much seem like they wanted to forget about it...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sighs, and glances out at the street::
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve can see the guards who interrogated her walk down the street, pausing in front of Libby's store::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she groans, and her eyes momentarily settle on the back door; half joking.:: To run, or not to run? That is the question.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns, looking forward to where Maeve had been looking, and sighs heavily::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::glares out at the guards, snarling under his breath::
YarnKittymon: : ::finally the larger guard opens the door, and they both walk in; they nod slightly to Libby:: Guards Milton and Coates here...::his eyes fall on Eli, and he looks a little surprised::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::flatly:: I'd say it was a pleasure to see you once again but I'm afraid I'd be lying.
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Milton nods:: I can say the same, Miss Owens. I'm afraid you and Mr. Kindall are both under arrest.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::eyes widen in surprise:: He's just a child!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she mutters:: Age hardly ever matters Libby. ::she shakes her head, and glares at the guards:: What are you charging us with?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::just looks at the guards and smirks:: Which one of you's planning on taking me in? ::his eyes flash to those of an animal for a second::
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Milton frowns:: I'm sorry, Mr. Kindall. We're hoping not to use force, but if we have to, we're prepared to.
Maeve Owens: MV: You didn't answer my question? Or is that because you have no real cause to take us in?
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Coates turns to Maeve; coldly:: We need to determine if you can keep control of your powers, Miss Owens.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: You're still alive aren't you?
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Milton scowls:: Do we need to call for backup, Miss Owens, or will you and Mr. Kindall come peacefully?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::smirks:: I thought all your training meant that you could handle things like this?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she moves from behind the counter to stand next to Eli:: You know very well we have control over our powers so unless you have a better reason for throwing us behind bars... *I'm* not budging.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods:: And unless you at the least have a warrant for their arrest, I'm going to have to ask you gentlemen to leave.
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Coates pulls two sheets of paper from his front pocket, waving them in front of Libby::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she reaches out to try and snatch one from him::
Quantum Catz: EK: :just looks irritated::
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve pulls one of the sheets; it's on fancy, thick paper, and is a typed and signed warrant for the arrest of one Eli Kindall::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she scans it, looking for confirmation of why they're being arrested, if such a thing is indeed printed on a warrant::
YarnKittymon: : ::it looks like a warrant, though Maeve hasn't seen one on Kitar Island; it's supposed to be signed by the head of the guard, and that's what the signature looks like::
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Coates looks at Maeve:: If you'd please come with me?
YarnKittymon: : ::the certificate does have a handwritten reason of arrest, which is listed as "suspicious talents"::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her jaw drops:: Suspicious talents? You have to be kidding me! ::she throws the warrant back at him:: I don't think so.
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Coates picks up the warrant from the floor:: It's the law, Miss Owens. We just want to be sure you're not a danger to yourself or others.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::her eyes widen, as she sees another two guards approach, outside the window::
Maeve Owens: MV: In all the years I have lived here when have I *ever* been a threat to others? It was self defense! Why are you making such a big deal out of this. ::she smirks:: Did we wound your ego that badly?
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Milton says, cooly:: So you're resisting arrest, Miss Owens?
Maeve Owens: MV: I'm not resisting. I'm protesting.
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard smirks:: Noted. Now come with us, please.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glares at him, and only hesitates a moment before she crosses her arms tightly over her chest, and moves towards the front door:: Fine. Have it your way... for now.
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Milton is visibly relieved, and he turns to Eli:: Mr. Kindall?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs and moves towards the door::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: Do either of you need anything? I can stop by the station and bring you whatever you'd like.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Oh you know the usual. A nail file... a shovel... anything else that comes in handy when one is stuck forever behind bars.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::smirks:: Unless you can turn into an insect and fly away of course
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Milton quietly says:: If any of you try to escape, we'll bring in someone who can *keep* you from it.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::glances at Eli; mutters:: Lucky you.
Quantum Catz: EK: Any of us? Does that mean you're arresting Guy too then?
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard smirks:: *You* said he killed that man, didn't you?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::winces and looks down::
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Coates glares at his partner, then in a gruff voice says:: Come, now. Your friends and family can bring you anything you'll need. And once we've determined you're not a threat, you'll be free to go.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sharply:: And how long will *that* take?
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Milton says:: Likely no more than a few days.
Maeve Owens: MV: This is insane. You people *know* we aren't a threat to the public. ::she angrily opens up the door and heads outside::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::follows behind, not saying anything::
YarnKittymon: : ::the two guards outside stand back, but follow the group to the prison. Once there, Eli is put into a cell that already houses Guy Stowe, and Maeve is put in the one directly next to them::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she groans again, looking utterly miserable, and hesitates to even go inside.:: Really? Is all this necessary?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::just walks in and sits down, looking irritated again::
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Milton clears his throat:: It's Guard Salinger's orders, miss.
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Coates gently closes the cell door behind Eli::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks at Eli apologetically::
Maeve Owens: MV: Yeah, well, you all should look for a different leader. One with more than just half a brain.
Quantum Catz: EK: ::just shrugs at Guy::
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Milton laughs:: Are you suggesting mutiny, Miss Owens?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::smirks:: I thought mutiny was for ships. ::quietly:: Although rats live on ships, so maybe it's an apt word after all.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she just smirks::
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Milton frowns:: Miss Owens, Mr. Kindall, would you like me to inform Mr. Isaac Kindall about your arrangements?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs:: I guess so, it'll probably get round town soon enough anyway
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shrugs::
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard turns to go, nodding to Guard Coates, who resignedly pulls up a chair to watch them--then Guard Milton leaves::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns at Coates:: Where is Harry? ::its apparent she'd rather have anyone but *him* watching them::
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Coates shakes his head:: Patrolling about town, miss.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sighs, looking rather irritated, and finally takes a seat on the bench. A second later her foot is beating a restless tune against the cement floor::
YarnKittymon: : ::a bit of time passes uneventfully::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::walks into the prison, looking worried, with Dolly and Josh::

YarnKittymon: JH: ::has a rather unhappy look on his face and almost appears peaked; he hurries over to Eli's cell and presses his face to the bars::
SP00KY One: DK: ::she walks in looking rather somber, and is carrying a small basket with her. SHe follows Josh over to Eli's cell; quietly:: Thought you might like some dinner.
YarnKittymon: GU: ::raises his eyebrows when the family comes in, then turns back to a file he's working on::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::shakes his head, making a bit of a face at his siblings:: This is all stupid, we'll be out of here before you know it
Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves over to Maeve's cell:: How are you?
SP00KY One: DK: Well, in case they deside to keep you over night.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::quietly:: Or longer.
Quantum Catz: EK: Well considering we're not actually dangerous monsters, they've no real reason to hold us ::though he winces a bit when he says it::
SP00KY One: MV: ::she gets up from the bench, and approaches the bars; smiling weakly:: Haven't gone *completely* insane yet so there might be hope.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::still looks rather anxious:: Then why'd they lock you up?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs:: They've got to make it look like they're not completely useless
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: I tried to talk to them about letting you go, or when they would, but they didn't really seem to want to listen
YarnKittymon: JH: ::cringes:: What if they whip you?
SP00KY One: MV: ::she shakes her head:: No, I tried as well. I think we hurt their pride. ::she cringes at Josh's statement::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::mutters; looking irritated:: They can *try* to hurt me
Quantum Catz: IS: ::cringes as well:: I'm sure it won't go that far
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Coates gets to his feet, glaring at Eli:: Behave yourself or I won't allow visitors.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::turns back to face the guard, looking stricken, though he doesn't dare say anything::
Quantum Catz: IS: He's just a child and you've arrested him, you can't blame him for being upset
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard looks steadily at Isaac:: I don't care if the mayor worships you, Mr. Kindall; you can't order me around.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::wearily:: I wasn't ordering you around, i'm just asking you to show my brother a little consideration
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard sits down again, not replying::
SP00KY One: MV: ::she holds back a giggle:: Well, at least one of us can shut him up.
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard glares at Maeve, still silently:::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks at his brother:: Getting mad at the guards isn't going to get you out of here
Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs, though the look on his eyes suggests he doesn't really agree::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::turns back to Isaac:: How *can* we get them out? ::glances back at Guy, though, with a bit of a dark look::
SP00KY One: MV: I doubt being friendly will either. Hopefully when Harry gets here I'll be able to do *something* about this rather dumb situation. He at least has more brains than the others.
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Coates barely restrains a laugh::
SP00KY One: MV: ::she glares at him::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: I'm going to go talk to the mayor, see what he has to say about this
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard smirks:: You just do that, Mr. Kindall.
Quantum Catz: IS: Well i doubt anyone in the town would be very happy if i decided to stop healing everyone - very dangerous job you have here, really, Mr Coates, and there are a lot of people around here who wouldn't want to see me or my family mistreated
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard nods, though there's just a little something in his eyes that betrays a hint of worry:: We'll see, Mr. Kindall.
SP00KY One: MV: ::she grins::
Quantum Catz: IS: I guess we will
YarnKittymon: : ::after an awkward silence, Guard Coates stands:: If you're meaning to give that supper to Mr. Eli Kindall, I'll need to see it first.
SP00KY One: DK: ::she slowly holds out the basket it to him. Although, there's enough in there for Maeve, and Guy as well.::
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard rummages through the whole basket, making sure there's nothing that could possibly hold a weapon, and testing for weight if need be::
SP00KY One: ::there's nothing unusual about the basket.::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::goes to sit down:: Give the food to Maeve, i'm not hungry
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard opens Maeve's cell just wide enough to hand the basket to her::
SP00KY One: DK: ::she frowns:: You have to eat something Eli.
SP00KY One: MV: ::she shakes her head:: No, really. It's okay.
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard frowns, trying to force the basket on to Maeve:: There's enough for the three of you, unless one's a glutton.
SP00KY One: MV: ::she rolls her eyes, and takes the basket from him. She takes out her share of things, placing them on the bench, before handing it back to the guard. She quietly thanks Dolly::
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard goes over and opens the other cell just wide enough to slip the basket through the bars, then retreats, slamming the door with a harsh clang::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::glances at the food and murmurs:: Thanks
SP00KY One: DK: ::smiles weakly::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::looks up and smiles at Dolly:: I'll see that he eats something.
SP00KY One: DK; ::shyly:: Thanks
YarnKittymon: : ::Guard Coates sits down again::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles at Maeve:: I should go talk to the mayor - i'll come back and let you know what he says
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods, ready to go with his brother::
SP00KY One: MV: ::she nods:: Okay. Good luck. ::smiles slightly::
Quantum Catz: EK: See you

YarnKittymon: : ::there's a guard at the door of the mayor's office; as Isaac approaches the guard gruffly asks:: Can I help you?
Quantum Catz: IS: I'd like to talk to the mayor, please
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard smirks:: Do you have an appointment?
SP00KY One: DK: ::she frowns, wondering if all the guards in Marquis came with large ego's::
Quantum Catz: IS: No, but it's rather important and i think he'd like to talk to me
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard frowns, shaking his head:: I'm sorry; he's very busy--
YarnKittymon: : ::the mayor opens the door, looking rather tired, and a bit of relief crossing his face when he sees who's outside:: Isaac...please come in.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::takes a deep breath, feeling tired, and walks into the mayor's office::
SP00KY One: DK: ::she follows Isaac in::
YarnKittymon: : ::Dolly just sees a dark look cross the guard's face::
YarnKittymon: : ::the mayor motions for Isaac and his family to sit down, then sits back behind his desk, sighing; he shakes his head and softly says:: Isaac, I'm sorry.
Quantum Catz: IS: For what, exactly?
SP00KY One: DK: ::she frowns slightly, not feeling all that easy about the guards look. She quickly hurries past::
YarnKittymon: : ::once the door's closed, the mayor says, still in a quiet voice:: There was a law passed to govern all the unincorporated towns--they're worried about variants with dangerous powers.
Quantum Catz: IS: Those three were defending me and themselves, they would never do anything beyond that and you know it
YarnKittymon: : ::the mayor nods; very quietly:: I know, Isaac. I've told the guards that.
SP00KY One: DK: ::very quietly, and without looking up at the mayor:: You cant make them let Eli go?
Quantum Catz: IS: I'm sure there must be something you can do - a lot more people are alive and will be alive in this town because of me, and it wouldn't go down too well if i stopped helping over this
YarnKittymon: : ::the mayor cringes; quietly:: I'll try my best, Isaac; I can take the issue to the people. But I've been told if I did...::shakes his head, looking rather pale:: I'll do what I can.
Quantum Catz: IS: If you do, then what?
YarnKittymon: MW: ::very quietly:: They've implied threats.
SP00KY One: DK: ::her eyes widen. She almost asks, but bites her lip instead::
Quantum Catz: IS: Who have? The guards?
YarnKittymon: MW: ::puts a finger on his lips, but nods::
Quantum Catz: IS: What do they care about Maeve and Eli? About Guy?
YarnKittymon: MW: ::quietly:: I'm not sure. They claim all three are dangerous...and from what I've heard, Mr. Stowe may be. But Maeve and Eli have been here long enough, they shouldn't be considered any kind of threat.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: And they put Mr. Stowe in a cell with Eli.
SP00KY One: DK: ::sounding a bit afraid:: What's wrong with Mr. Stowe?
YarnKittymon: MW: ::in an even lower voice:: They might be mistaken, but I was told he can kill someone just by touching him.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::closes his eyes, thinking of those faded memories he had of that monster's last moments; softly:: Has there ever been any case to suggest that?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::cringes, but doesn't speak::
SP00KY One: DK: ::her eyes widen but she stays silent::
YarnKittymon: MW: ::quietly:: The autopsy was inconclusive, but an anonymous source claimed it to be true. I suppose they'll put him on trial for that in Gate Town.
Quantum Catz: IS: But if it's just Guy...then why arrest Maeve and Eli?
YarnKittymon: MW: ::frowns:: There's lawyers here, claiming it was murder, too, you know.
Quantum Catz: IS: Why? What the hell do they know about it? He was fighting them, he'd have loved to have them all dead
YarnKittymon: MW: ::shakes his head:: I'd give five gold to know why, Isaac. ::shakes his head; quietly:: As I said, I'll take my case to the people, but if nothing else, I'm certain they'll all be forced to stand trial.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::frowns, looking uphappy:: Why don't you talk to Jack? Maybe he can find out something
YarnKittymon: MW: ::laughs weakly:: I'm sure they weren't happy to let *you* in; why do you think they'd let me see *him*?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks annoyed again for a moment:: Well i'll talk to him then
YarnKittymon: MW: ::shrugs, then pauses; softly:: Please ask him to have someone keep an eye on Ella. Fifteen gold in it for him.
Quantum Catz: IS: You make it sound like you're a prisoner in your own office
YarnKittymon: MW: ::looks at Isaac grimly:: You think they'd leave her be just because she's not grown?
SP00KY One: DK: ::she frowns, wondering how the guards could even threaten such a thing::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::shakes his head:: Things are never simple ::sighs:: I'll ask him about Ella. Don't worry about it ::stnads up to go::
YarnKittymon: MW: ::quietly:: Take care, Isaac. I'll make that speech an hour from now.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::nods:: Thank you ::heads for the door::
YarnKittymon: : ::once they've left the office, the guard lets Isaac and his family pass, though he doesn't look too happy about it::
SP00KY One: DK: ::she keeps her eyes lowered as she passes, and stays close to Isaac::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::once they're outside the building; softly:: I can go see Mr. Richards if you want...maybe the guards wouldn't suspect me.
SP00KY One: DK: ::mumbles:: I don't understand how we got an awful group of guards.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: I don't know what's going on either, but i'm sure we're bound to find out eventually ::looks at Josh:: I don't know, i don't think this is something you should get too involved with ::looks rather worried after the comment about ella::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: Neither should you...if there's such a thing as luck I think you already used yours up...
SP00KY One: DK: ::she frowns:: Well one of us should go. He might be the only one who can help us?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks from Josh to Dolly, wanting to just do it himself but knowing they'd probably not let him:: Okay, Dolly - go to Libby, tell her what's going on and she can talk to Jack
SP00KY One: DK: ::she nods:: Okay

Quantum Catz: JK: ::after finding out about what's happening to the guards, he decides to talk to Harry fist, deciding the easiest way to find out where he is is to ask the man's new love interest.. He goes to where she's staying, hoping that she'll be home to ask::
SP00KY One: SV: ::upon opeing the door to find a strange man standing there, her eyes widen quite a bit:: Um, can I help you?
Quantum Catz: JK: ::a bit distracted to remember to introduce himself:: You're Stephanie Vallero right? I need to know where Harry is
SP00KY One: SV: ::she looks a bit amused:: Maybe. Whose asking?
Quantum Catz: JK: Look, lady, i'm his mate - i just want to find him
SP00KY One: SV: ::suddenly looks a little suspicious:: Without a name you're not getting a thing from me. He's out patroling and unless its important, I doubt he'd like the interruption.
Quantum Catz: JK: Jack Richards ::smirks slightly:: And if you ain't heard of me by now i'm sure you will at some point
SP00KY One: SV: ::raises an eyebrow:: I've heard of you. ::she steps out of her room, and locks the door::
Quantum Catz: JK: I don't need you to come with me, this is a personal thing
SP00KY One: SV: You might not but if I'm going to divulge his whereabout I at least want to know what's going on.
Quantum Catz: JK: I don't need you that desperately, if you ain't going t'tell me i'll still find him
SP00KY One: SV: ::she sighs, and turns to smirk at him:: Men, why are you all so difficult?
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shakes his head and starts to walk away from her:: Cos i ain't in the best mood and someone just came and made it worse
SP00KY One: SV: Oh. Well. Sorry to hear that. But you might want to try stomping off towards the archery shop.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::turns to look at her, a bit of a smirk back on his face again:: I don't stomp
SP00KY One: SV: ::gives him a lopsided grin:: You looked mad enough to.
Quantum Catz: JK: Having people threatening my mates does that to me ::turns to head for the archery shop, not stopping to see if she's following or not::
SP00KY One: SV: ::his comment rather intrigues her, and she does follow, but its likely he'd not notice even if he did look::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::is readily visible, standing directly outside the archery shop, looking bored out of his mind::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::walks up to him:: Hey, mate, we need to talk
SP00KY One: SV: ::tries to slip in behind the archery shop unnoticed, but at least to where she can hear them talk::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::frowns:: I've got another three hours on my shift, Jack.
Quantum Catz: JK: It's pretty damn important, or i wouldn't be here ::glances around for Stephanie::
SP00KY One: SV: ::she's already in place behind the shop, so unless he goes looking, he's not likely to see her::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::looks both ways suspiciously, then very quietly:: Well?
Quantum Catz: JK: Maeve, Eli and Guy are in jail; someone seems pretty determined to keep them there
YarnKittymon: HR: ::grimaces:: What? Why would Mayor Wagner do that?
Quantum Catz: JK: It ain't him, n someone's threatnin' him enough he wants me to get someone to watch his sister
YarnKittymon: HR: ::cringes again, cursing softly:: This is the first I've heard of it; do you know how deep it goes?
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shakes his head:: I only just heard about it
YarnKittymon: HR: ::takes a deep breath, then softly:: Well, my hat's in with the mayor. Got any plans?
SP00KY One: SV: ::she bites her lip, looking a bit guilty::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shugs:: Was hoping you might've heard something. Guess it's just a case of talking t'people till i find someone who knows something
YarnKittymon: HR: What are Maeve and the rest being held for?
Quantum Catz: JK: Bein' dangerous
Quantum Catz: JK: ::smirks a bit as he says it::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::frowns:: Law just passed about that, didn't it?
Quantum Catz: JK: Yeah but it sounds like an excuse t'me
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods:: But they couldn't've been locked up if the queen of Yarnia hadn't convinced the council to pass the law.
Quantum Catz: JK: Wonder if there's someone whisperin' in her ear
YarnKittymon: HR: You spent time with her; do you think it's someone behind her, or *her*?
Quantum Catz: JK: The law could've been her, sure, anythin' to protect yerself right? But Maeve 'n' Eli helped her, can't imagine she'd have much against them
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods; after a moment, smirks:: Well, I guess the mayor will forgive me if I leave my post, and if he's thrown out of office, I'm not sucking up to a bunch of mutinous guards anyway. ::brightens:: I can ask Stephanie if she knows anything--she's a reporter after all.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::smirks:: Was that why she was so nosey when i talked t'her? I'd've sworn she was gonna follow me but i didn't notice 'er behind me
YarnKittymon: HR: I'll go find her, then. ::pauses, soberly:: Who you gonna get to look out for the girl?
SP00KY One: SV: ::she rolls her eyes. Thinking she'd better get out of there if he plans to go find her, she tries to sneak back the way she came::
Quantum Catz: JK: I know some people i trust, guess one of them
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods:: Okay. I'll catch up with you later; we can figure a plan.
Quantum Catz: JK: Alright, i'll go find some other people to chat to
YarnKittymon: HR: ::stops short as a rather reckless bicyclist nearly runs him over; oblivious, the poor driver keeps on towards Stephanie::
SP00KY One: SV: ::she gasps, and barely has time to dive for the bushes, likely creating a lof of racket as she does so::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::sees the whole thing, and yells at the bicyclist, ordering him to dismount--though the reckless boy doesn't listen, and rather than try to catch him, Harry goes over to help poor Stephanie up::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::turns to look when he hears the commotion; smirks:: Guess you did follow me after all - i'm impressed
SP00KY One: SV: ::she smiles up at Harry, but turns to smirk at Jack:: You weren't all that difficult to follow.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::holds out an arm to help Stephanie up:: Are you all right?
SP00KY One: SV: ::she nods:: I suppose. ::her arms are a bit scratched up from the bush though::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smiles slightly:: So what did you hear?
SP00KY One: SV: ::she brushes the leaves from her skirt:: Well, I'll tell you that the two of you are definitely overly paranoid. ::she avoids looking at Harry though, instead focussing on Jack:: It goes no farther than the guards trying to excersize their control over the situation.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shrugs:: You've got to look at every possibility or you'll end up being caught off guard
SP00KY One: SV: ::she nods:: But I've heard them talking. They're concerned that the people will start doubting their capabilities if more variants decide to take matters into their own hands.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::quietly:: So why are they threatening the mayor?
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shrugs:: They're the ones who started that by asking for help from people like us. Apparently there are people wanting Guy to go down for murder
SP00KY One: SV: ::she shrugs:: Anyway, I'd stay out of it. It'll all blow over eventually.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shakes his head:: I can't let them hold Maeve...::smirks::...even if she probably has it coming for *something* she's done. And Eli's just a kid.
SP00KY One: SV: ::raises an eyebrow:: You *can't* let them hold Maeve?
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shakes his head:: These things don't blow over anyway, unless you count them staying in jail and being forgotten about as things blowing over
YarnKittymon: HR: ::frowns:: We're wasting time, Stephanie; we need to find out how we can get them out and help the mayor.
SP00KY One: SV: ::she looks away, trying to figure out what to say to them:: You're borrowing trouble if you do. Are you sure she's- *they*- are worth it?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shrugs:: I'm not one to turn my back on a friend.
SP00KY One: SV: ::she glances between the two of them as if she's trying to determine if she should say anything, and how much she should say::
Quantum Catz: JK: I reckon they are worth it, any good friend is
YarnKittymon: HR: So unless you have anything to say that will help us, we'd best get moving.
SP00KY One: SV; ::quickly: It could cost you a job Harry.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smirks:: If the mayor comes up on top, *not* helping might cost me a job, too.
Quantum Catz: JK: There's always other jobs, i'm sure the both of us've had to deal wit h losing one before
SP00KY One: SV: ::she cringes:: Then you'd give up just about anything to do this? I'm not sure whats at stake. It could be more than just your job.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::frowns at her:: D'you know something about this?
SP00KY One: SV: ::she swallows hard, and looks over at Harry::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::takes Stephanie's hand; softly:: If it's dangerous and you want to step away, that's fine. But Jack and I are already in, with or without your help.
SP00KY One: SV: ::she shakes her head:: I'm afraid if I dont you might end up in worse trouble... but it doesnt put me in a very good... position.
Quantum Catz: JK: Quit it with the riddles and either tell us or don't
SP00KY One: SV: ::she glares at Jack, before looking back at Harry:: Do you know anything about the new guard that was hired?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::eyes widen:: You've seen him, Jack; he was with the queen's entourage. Not sure why he decided to move to Marquis.
SP00KY One: SV: He moved because of the queen. He's still part of her "entourage".
Quantum Catz: JK: What's he here to do?
SP00KY One: SV: I don't know *exactly* what he is up to, but the queen wants to bring the mayor down, and he's here to see that it's done.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::looks back at Jack, frowning, then back at Stephanie; softly:: You have any idea how many guards are with him?
SP00KY One: SV: ::she shrugs:: Probably quite a few. I'm not sure.
Quantum Catz: JK: So what does this have to do with our friends? A lot of people will take Isaac's side and he's on the mayors
SP00KY One: SV: It's nothing personal. Maeve's helped the queen in the past, and its unfortunate that it had to be her. However, if this plays out correctly, and the mayor loses control over the guards then someone else will be sent in.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::cringes:: You mean, new guards too?
SP00KY One: SV: ::she nods::
YarnKittymon: HR: All right. I'm going to go talk to the guards; even if they're up to this plot, I can't see as they'll be happy to give up their jobs.
SP00KY One: SV: ::she cringes:: Can you be a little more subtle than that?
YarnKittymon: HR: Well, I wasn't planning to tell them about what's *happening*, just remind them that our fate's tied to the mayor, you know....
SP00KY One: SV: But no one is suppose to know it's going to lead to the mayor's downfall. No one is even truly against the mayor yet.
Quantum Catz: JK: Then why are people trying to plot his downfall?
SP00KY One: SV: Right now it's just the queen and her guard. I'm not even sure if the others really see the bigger picture... if they even have an idea of how far this goes.
Quantum Catz: JK: But *why*?
SP00KY One: SV: ::she sighs:: She hates the fact that he is for electricity. She wants him out, and someone in who will get rid of it.
Quantum Catz: JK: Damned politics
YarnKittymon: HR: ::pauses:: Where'd you hear all this, Stephanie? From researching your articles?
SP00KY One: SV: ::she looks a bit uneasy:: Well, the new guard isn't the only one working for the queen. He's just the only one who still agrees with her "ideals".

YarnKittymon: HR: ::looks more uneasy at this; softly:: Stephanie, do you know how dangerous that is?
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she lets out an agrivated sigh, and turns away; quietly:: Yes, but unless I want to life on this island to return to that of the fifteenth century.... what choice do I have? And with the two of you *insisting* on getting involved... ::she sighs again::
Quantum Catz: JK: We're just trying to help our friends, i'm not really bothered about any of the rest of it
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smirks:: I wouldn't mind scoring some points with the mayor, though. ::more seriously:: So what now?
Maeve Owens: SV: ::her eyes widen, and she turns to look at Jack:: You should be. It may just be electricity but who knows where it'll go from there. ::she smirks:: She could have *you* back in tights. ::looking to Harry, she shrugs:: Haven't figured that out yet.
YarnKittymon: : ::a couple men pass by, carrying a heavy wooden podium towards the middle of town::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::watches them walk:: What are *they* up to?
Quantum Catz: JK: The mayor's giving a speech soon about what's happening with Maeve, Eli and Guy...guess it's for that
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she winces::
YarnKittymon: HR: Isn't that dangerous?
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she nods::
YarnKittymon: HR: Well, shouldn't we stop him?
Maeve Owens: SV: I dont know. If the queen decides to get rid of him then we might be able to catch them in the act. Then we'd have a way to stop this whole mess. Right?
Quantum Catz: JK: So we let him talk in the off chance that someone tries to kill him while he's up there?
Maeve Owens: SV: ::shrugs:: You got any better ideas?
YarnKittymon: HR: Do the *guards* know he's going to be speaking? If they do, why would they wait?
Maeve Owens: SV: I'm not sure its the guards we have to worry about so much the *the* guard... but I could be wrong about that. And I dont know if he'll move right away. He might wait for the queen's order.
Quantum Catz: JK: We could make sure this guy isn't there for the speech
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods:: Not a problem. I'll track him down. ::starts to walk off to do so::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she frowns:: What do you mean? It's not like he wont eventually hear about it, and report back to the queen.
Quantum Catz: JK: But the mayor'll at least still be alive which's more than he might have with that guy near him
Maeve Owens: SV: How will you stop him from going after him later then? Or is that when you plan to "catch him in the act"?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::doesn't listen to any of this, walking away quickly::
Quantum Catz: JK: We can work it out once we know more about who's on who's side
Maeve Owens: SV: Okay. I just hope Harry knows what he's doing. ::watches him walk away with a smirk::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::nods:: I trust him, which's all i need
YarnKittymon: : ::the podium is set up in the center of town, just within sight::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::doesn't want to draw attention to himself, so he tries to discretely look around for Guard Wise::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she excuses herself from Jack, and takes off after Harry. She stops along side of him; quietly:: What do you plan to say to him? You know if you make it obvious you'll likely get yourself into trouble.
YarnKittymon: HR: If nothing else, we have to keep him away from Mayor Wagner. What do *you* suggest?
Maeve Owens: SV: I'd suggest you come up with a good reason to delay him.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smirks at her:: Damsel in distress?
Maeve Owens: SV: ::smirks:: And where willl you find a damsel in distress? One that you cant take care of without *his* help?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::grins:: You feel like getting into some trouble?
YarnKittymon: : ::they spy Guard Wise, walking towards the center of town, a determined look on his face::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::quietly:: I think I already am.
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard looks ready to walk right by them, but Harry steps square in front of him:: Hey, Wise, wait up. I need some help at the archery shop.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::tries to slip away into the bushes::
YarnKittymon: AW: ::the guard is fairly handsome, with short, very light hair and a slim but muscular build; while he was one of the queen's guards, it looks like he could have just as easily been a courtier; he frowns at Harry:: You weren't to leave your post, Chalmers, were you?
Maeve Owens: SV: ::smirking, she stops to look back at Harry, becoming rather curious about how he plans to slip out of this one::
YarnKittymon: HR: I know, but this was the only way I could get word to you.
YarnKittymon: AW: ::pushes Harry aside:: I don't have time for games, Chalmers.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she frowns, watching the guard carefully, but since he seems to not care that she's there...:: He's telling the truth. There's been a threat of a break in.
YarnKittymon: AW: ::laughs:: And your little *beau* can't handle it himself? Pardon me. ::tries to walk past, though Harry stands in the way::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::smirks:: One man against five?
YarnKittymon: AW: ::shoves Harry out of the way, ignoring him and Stephanie both::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::looks at Harry as if to say "now what?"::
YarnKittymon: HR: Addison, I have seniority over you.
YarnKittymon: AW: ::turns back to Harry, his eyes narrowed dangerously:: And if I say one word to the queen your girl is back in prison or worse, so I suggest you stay out of this.
YarnKittymon: HR: The town's on Wagner's side, you know.
Maeve Owens: SV: And where exactly are you rushing off to?
YarnKittymon: AW: ::pauses, then after a moment smirks:: I suppose there's time to go to the archery shop.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::grins slightly:: Afraid I'll follow you?
YarnKittymon: AW: ::smiles silently as he turns to go, though he glances back at Harry:: Come along, if there's a threat you can't handle.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::frowns:: I'd rather get some more reinforcements.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she crosses her arms, and watching the two. She raises an eyebrow at Harry, wondering how he'll come up with "trouble" at the archery on such short notice::
YarnKittymon: AW: ::smiles at Harry, and in a very low voice says:: You'd be surprised how many guards side with me. ::then walks off towards the shop::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::follows him:: Why is that? Do they know every detail of what you're planning? Or did you conveniently leave out the "juicy" stuff?
YarnKittymon: AW: ::laughs suddenly:: You think *you* know everything?
Maeve Owens: SV: Probably a lot more than you think.
YarnKittymon: AW: ::under his breath, his eyes fixed on where he's walking, not Stephanie:: They punish treason by beheading, you know.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::quietly:: But I haven't done anything but do my job... gather information. I'm just not so sure the queen would really want you to resort to murder.
YarnKittymon: AW: ::quietly, still looking ahead:: Who mentioned murder?
Maeve Owens: SV: A few people have. Is it true? Is that what you're planning to do? There's a pretty big price to pay for that as well.
YarnKittymon: AW: ::doesn't answer::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::persistantly:: Does the queen know? You do this and she could have *your* head.
YarnKittymon: AW: ::turns back to Stephanie, softly:: The queen knows absolutely nothing about any of this. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to take your beau at his word. ::walks towards the archery shop, which is in sight::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she frowns, and then runs to catch up with him:: Whoa, Wait. Then whose orders are you under? And if you're not working for the queen... then who are you working for?
YarnKittymon: AW: That's not something I care to disclose to a traitor.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::mutters:: At least I'm not a traitor to myself.
YarnKittymon: AW: ::walks past her to the archery shop::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::tries to stand in front of him again:: Come on *Addy*. You got it easy. Some lowlife disclosed some "false" facts to you about me. It's only fair you fess up to your part in this.
YarnKittymon: AW: I take it you'd like the island to fall into ruin. Because that's what will happen if we don't deal with this problem now.
Maeve Owens: SV: Which problem are you talking about?
YarnKittymon: AW: Mechanization is going to destroy the island. And I thought you *wanted* me to help out at the archery store.
Maeve Owens: SV: That's fine if you feel that way. But you cant possibly be okay with how the queen is dealing with it!
YarnKittymon: AW: I've told you, Her Majesty isn't involved at all.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she frowns:: But... not from what I've heard. And if she isn't involved... then what are *you* doing involved with it.
YarnKittymon: AW: I'm just a concerned citizen. Pardon me. ::tries to walk past Stephanie::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::irritated, she only glares at him, and follows him out to the archery place::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::suddenly:: I know about you and the queen.
YarnKittymon: AW: ::eyes widen, and he looks over at Stephanie, suddenly glaring:: I was formerly her courtier, and then her guard. *So*?
Maeve Owens: SV: Surely *she* nor you, want that information spread about?
YarnKittymon: AW: ::in a low voice:: No more than you'd like Her Majesty to know you've turned on her.
Maeve Owens: SV: If she isn't involved then maybe I haven't. But lets make a deal. You keep your mouth closed to her about that, and I wont say a word about what I know. But I also want to know what you're up to, and under whose orders.
YarnKittymon: AW: You've guessed what I'm up to, and you know I'm doing it of my own volition.
Maeve Owens: SV: But I dont understand why you'd risk your position with the queen. Would she condone what you're planning?
YarnKittymon: AW: I'd rather protect the island and all who live on it, than curry Her Majesty's favor.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she shakes her head:: She might want the mayor out of here but I'm not sure she'd like it taken to the lengths you're taking it to. Especially not at the expense of the three people sitting in that jail cell.
YarnKittymon: AW: ::turns and goes into the archery shop without another word::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::lets out a frustrated sigh, and looks around for Harry::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::shows up not thirty seconds later, with just one guard, a dark-skinned, friendly enough man; Harry asks, in a quiet voice:: Is he inside?
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she nods::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods, and the other guard rushes to the back of the building, while Harry pulls out a hammer and a few nails:: Watch the window, will you? ::and holds a couple nails in his mouth, hammering the third into the door to nail it shut::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::chokes back a laugh:: You can't be serious! ::although she moves to the window anyway::
YarnKittymon: : ::the window is barred, and Stephanie sees the look on Addison's face when he hears the hammers::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she grins, and goes back to where Harry is:: I don't think he's getting out.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smiles, though he doesn't stop hammering; when his mouth is free of nails:: Nice work, by the way. You learn anything new?
Maeve Owens: SV: Yes. The queen isn't ordering the mayor to be killed. He's plotting *that* out on his own. ::she smirks, looking even more troubled over this::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::frowns:: Oh. Well, maybe that's for the best; we won't have to go to war over it. ::pulls another nail from his pocket and gets to work:: That all?
Maeve Owens: SV: ::quietly:: You still might have to go to war if the mayor is kicked out, and Marquis loses it's lights.
YarnKittymon: HR: Well, we've got *him* taken care of. ::motions to the door, but frowns, shaking his head:: Unless the others really *have* sided with him...::trails off::
Maeve Owens: SV: I'm still not completely convinced it doesn't go deeper thant his. And if the queen really isn't involved.... ::she groans, and burries her face in her hands::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::quietly:: Then you're back with her. ::drives the last nail in, and tries the door, it's stuck tight:: Well, I'm not convinced Mayor Wagner's safe.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she shakes her head:: I'm not sure its that simple. Plus, in figuring that my position with her was already over, I told you and Jack.
YarnKittymon: HR: Well, I won't say a word, and I doubt Jack will.
Maeve Owens: SV: Its not you I'm worried about. ::she tilts her head towards the shack::
YarnKittymon: HR: Oh. ::frowns:: We'll worry about that once everything else is taken care of. Worst comes to worst I guess you have to leave the island for a while.
Maeve Owens: SV: If I even made it off of here in the first place.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smiles slightly:: Stick with me; I'll keep you safe. Promise.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::laughs quietly::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::his smile fades as he softly says:: First thing's to protect the mayor for now, though. ::walks quickly in that direction::
Maeve Owens: SV: Of course. ::she quickly follows him::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::suddenly stops:: Whoa wait. How do you know that other guy isn't in on it?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::frowns:: What other guy? Oz?
Maeve Owens: SV: I guess. Is that the man you brought with you?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods:: He's the only one I trusted.
Maeve Owens: SV: How do you know you can trust him?
YarnKittymon: HR: When you spend enough time with someone, you know.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she reluctantly nods:: Okay. I'll trust your judgement. ::continues walking again::

Quantum Catz: JK: ::is just coming the other way from talking to some of his friends and sorting out a watcher for the mayor's sister::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::spies Jack and hurries over to him; in a low voice:: Hear anything useful?
Quantum Catz: JK: Old Bricks has been spinning a few good yarns about the mayor's speech bein' a good time for people to be goin' about their business without the guards to hassle them
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods:: We have a fella saying this was all his idea, but I don't buy it; I think it does deeper. What do we do now?
Maeve Owens: SV: Listen to the mayor give his speech? ::she shrugs::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::to Harry:: You deal with that guard?
YarnKittymon: HR: He's locked up, though he might *like* it that way--then whatever happens with the mayor, he can claim he wasn't involved.
Quantum Catz: JK: I reckon having him out of the picture might draw out some of his mates right enough
Maeve Owens: SV: So back to what we do now... ?
YarnKittymon: HR: ::quietly:: I'm still not sure the mayor's safe.
Quantum Catz: JK: If i can get near enough to him, that won't be a problem
Maeve Owens: SV: Then lets go see how close we can get you to the mayor. ::she smiles::
YarnKittymon: HR: Are your mates going to start any trouble, Jack?
Quantum Catz: JK: I told them it wouldn't be a good idea, but i don't know who else Bricks has spoken to
YarnKittymon: HR: Would you trust them to *prevent* trouble?
Quantum Catz: JK: You mean get them to stop whoever else might be thinking about it?
YarnKittymon: HR: Or just scare off anyone who might try something. I don't know how much time we have, but if the town descends into anarchy, the queen's going to have her way and get the mayor thrown out, even if they don't kill him.
Maeve Owens: SV: We need more people on our side.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::nods:: Think i could at least convince them it'd risk their own livelihoods if they don't help...
Maeve Owens: SV: Then you'd better hurry because they were already setting up.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods:: I'll stand by the mayor 'til then. ::walks off towards the common area to do so::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::nods:: I know a guy who can sort it for me, then i'll need to try and get to the mayor ::turns andheads back the way he came:: Won't take long
Maeve Owens: SV: ::looks between the two of them:: Okay... and I'll just... stand here till I decide who to follow. ::she frowns::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::is already on his way::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's already a crowd gathered around the small stage and podium where the mayor will be speaking; the man is standing back a few yards away, looking rather pale, and pacing, his hands in his pockets::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::figures Jack's friends might not like her, so she turns to follow Harry::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::turns back to Stephanie:: Update the mayor; I'm going to check out the guards.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she nods:: Okay. ::she turns towards the mayor::
YarnKittymon: MW: ::looks up when he sees Stephanie, a little startled:: Can I help you?
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she puts on her best smile, and holds out her hand to him:: Hello, I'm Stephanie Vallero. And if you'd like to step a little out of earshot... I have some information you might like to hear.
YarnKittymon: MW: ::nods, though he doesn't look any less pale, as he steps a bit away, to the shade of a tree:: Yes?
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she takes a deep breath, and fills him on the specifics, leaving out her personal involvement of course:: You're putting a lot on the line by making this speech.
YarnKittymon: MW: ::looks rather like a lost child by the time Stephanie's finished; softly:: If I do, everyone knows I've lost control, but if I don't, everyone thinks I'm a monster for locking up a child. What else can I do?
Maeve Owens: SV: Wait for Jack. He's on his way.
YarnKittymon: MW: ::nods, and leans against the tree for a few moments before he gives in and starts pacing again::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::her eyes scan the area for possible danger...at least when they're not lingering on Harry's form::
YarnKittymon: : ::the whole area is fairly surrounded by guards, and Harry has to be careful which ones he speaks to; even so, it's a rather dangerous thing to do, and once he has to duck out of sight into the crowd when he reads one of them
YarnKittymon: wrong::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::doesn't take long to return and walks over to the mayor and Stephanie, looking around at all the guards::
Maeve Owens: SV; ::frowning, she continues to watch Harry::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::finally approaches them again; quietly, walking past them, as though headed for the stage:: As soon as he starts talking, they're starting a riot.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::sighs, looking tired::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::groans::
YarnKittymon: MW: ::shakes his head; softly:: I'm telling everyone the whole thing; we'll see what happens from there.
Maeve Owens: SV: :::mutters:: Just make your opening line a good one.
Quantum Catz: JK: I think i've sorted any other trouble that they might have planned; there's not much i can do about the guards
YarnKittymon: MW: ::still rather pale:: Thanks, Jack. If it comes to it, give Ella my love. ::and he walks to the stage; the crowd goes strangely quiet in anticipation of his words::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::moves closer to the mayor, watching for any one who moves towards him::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she leans towards Harry; jokingly:: You know, we could head into the crowd and start knocking out the guards who try to start something. One way to lose some of this pent up frustration.
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods; softly:: Do you need my crossbow?
Maeve Owens: SV: Nah. Too bloody for my tastes, and not very sporty. ::grins::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smirks; slipping off into the crowd::
YarnKittymon: MW: ::stands tall and takes a deep breath; his hands are shaking, and he hides them behind the podium:: Ladies and gentlemen, the recent controverisal actions in Marquis have taken place out of my will. Someone, or a group, has come in to incite rebellion--
YarnKittymon: : ::someone in the crowd yells:: He's lost control of the guards!
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she frowns; quietly:: I was joking you know... do you really think that's going to help? ::looks around quickly then heads after him::
YarnKittymon: MW: ::loudly:: I believe most citizens of Marquis would rather we *have* electricity! But those who aren't are trying to plant chaos, so they can have their way here!
Maeve Owens: SV: ::discretely moves through the crowd towards the loud mouth::
YarnKittymon: : ::though it's hard to tell where it's from, an arrow whizzes by, towards the mayor, who clenches his teeth, cringing::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::pushes forward, trying to grab the mayor's arm before the arrow reaches him::
YarnKittymon: : ::Jack grabs him in time, and the arrow deflects with a flash of light--before anyone has time to consider this, there's a shout from somewhere else in the crowd, and then someone else tells them to get their hands off of him::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::tries to force his way over there, knowing how quickly this could turn really bad::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::moves in the same direction as Harry::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::suddenly shouts:: Hey! How many of you guys owe something ti Isaac Kindell?
YarnKittymon: : ::a few people start booing, but it's pretty evident to anyone with much sense that those people aren't from Marquis at all; the boos die down into silence::
Quantum Catz: JK: I know at least a few of you wouldn't like to be on my bad side, so maybe it's time you listened instead of ignoring what's going on around you
YarnKittymon: MW: ::nods:: Eli Kindall and the others were only protecting Isaac, and none of them have been known to be dangerous. Barring any evidence to the contrary, I command they be released. Any guard who doesn't agree will be dealt with, and I'm sure Mr. Kindall won't be healing you.
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a silence for a few moments, and then a couple guards slip off; Harry whispers for Stephanie to follow them. Someone suddenly shouts:: Jack Richards for mayor!
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she looks back for a moment, but quickly turns to follow the guards::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::turns to glare at the voice:: We've got a mayor
YarnKittymon: : ::the guards head straight for the jail, though it's not immediately clear whether or not they actually mean to free the prisoners::
YarnKittymon: MW: I'm not sure Mr. Richards wants to dirty himself with politics. At any rate, know I'm always campaigning to keep Marquis lit, and going forward I'm going to keep a better eye on my guards, to make sure they're with me on all points.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::being carefull not to be seen, she continues to follow them::
YarnKittymon: : ::the guards are talking to each other on the way, looking rather serious, but Stephanie can only hear them when they open the door to the jail and greet the man standing guard:: Release those three prisoners right quick, and we might keep our jobs.
Maeve Owens: SV: ::she busies herself with a potted plant while she waits for the three prisoners to be set free before she does anything::
YarnKittymon: : ::a few of the turncoat guards in the crowd suddenly start up a cheer; like the others, they've decided they'd like to keep their jobs::
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard inside the jail grumbles, but Stephanie hears the jingle of keys as the man goes to Guy and Eli's cell first::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::stands up and smirks when he sees the guard coming towards him::
YarnKittymon: : ::one of the other guards smiles as the door is unlocked:: Make sure you tell Mayor Wagner who freed you, OK?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::surprised; she quickly sits up, yet, she isn't so sure they're for real::
Quantum Catz: EK: Worried about your jobs now are you?
YarnKittymon: GU: ::stands up and calmly puts on his hat, though he can't keep a bit of a smirk off his face::
YarnKittymon: : ::the other guard scowls at Eli:: You want left in here, kid?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: You want to be run out of Marquis? ::she approaches the bars:: Come on, some of us are dying for freedom over here. Hurry up.
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard glares at Maeve, but gingerly unlocks her cell too::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::just smirks again and turns into a bird, flying out of the prison but circling to wait for Maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles sweetly at the man, and quickly gets out of the confing cell:: Thank you so much. ::looks up at Eli then makes a quick escape toward the door::
YarnKittymon: GU: ::tips his hat to the guards, though he can't conceal a bit of worry in his eyes, then follows the others out::
Quantum Catz: EK: ::changes back into his human form once they're outside::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks at Eli:: Has "free as a bird" taken on a whole new meaning now?
Quantum Catz: EK: ::half jokingly:: Next time i'm just gonna run off before they catch me
YarnKittymon: : ::the crowd in the common area starts to disperse::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods; mutters:: Depending on what it is, I'd probably agree with that course of action.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::softly to the mayor:: I doubt it's over yet
YarnKittymon: : ::the guards glare at Maeve, and one of them says:: Don't be starting any more trouble.
YarnKittymon: MW: ::nods; whispering:: I know, but I wouldn't have made it this far without you. I owe you another favor, I suppose. ::smiles weakly::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::coldly:: I wasn't it, but that doesn't seem to matter to you! ::starts to walk off::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shrugs:: I ain't really all that much into the idea of us goin' back a few centures
Quantum Catz: EK: ::follows after her::
Maeve Owens: SV: ::watches for a moment longer before she makes her way back to Harry::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::nods:: Well, I'd best go have my guards arrest the treasonous one. And I may well have to have a talk with Yarnia's queen. ::goes to see his guards::
YarnKittymon: HR: ::smiles at Stephanie as she approaches:: Everything all right?
Quantum Catz: JK: ::heads over to Harry as well::
Maeve Owens: SV: For now. At least they did release them.
YarnKittymon: HR: Good. Thanks for checking. ::glances up at Jack as he approaches:: Good job there.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shrugs:: Just reminded people who they were going to be messin' with
YarnKittymon: HR: ::frowns:: Of course, half the guards don't appreciate being shown up a second time. There's some more trouble ahead, I'm sure.
Maeve Owens: SV: Of course there is. Nothing is ever that easy.
