Quantum Catz: IS: ::is at his house, preparing
a fancy dinner for Maeve; he's asked his siblings for the house
to himself for the evening and he's rather nervous::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is actually across the street at a friend's, but he's watching his house through the window; he has a tiny guess of what's going on, but even now, he's still afraid that something will come and take Isaac, or Maeve, away, if they aren't all together::
Quantum Catz: EK: it's taken a while for his brother to get over what Eli did to the man who tried to kill him, but he's glad now that Isaac seems to be getting on with things so he's spying as a bird, circling nearby::
MaggyBeths: DK: ::she's is the only one who doesn't have the advantage of seeing what's going on since she's across town at a friend's house. She's rather distracted, and not much fun at all at her little get together since she's nervous for her brother::
MaggyBeths: MV: ::Still in her work clothes, Maeve crosses the street, and climbs up the steps to Isaac's front door, completely oblivious to anything that might be going on. She knocks softly::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::answers the door, he's tidied himself up a bit, though he's not dressed up too smartly, since he knew Maeve wouldn't bother; he grins when he sees her:: Hey, how was work?
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she smiles back:: The usual. It was a slow a day but it seemed to take forever. YarnKittymon: JH: ::relaxes only slightly when he sees Maeve go into the house, but he still can't take his eyes off the doorway, though his friend teases him pretty mercilessly::
Quantum Catz: IS: Good thing you've got me to pamper you this evening then
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she raises an eyebrow, grinning:: Really? Hmm, I don't even hear any other voices...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: They're all out
MaggyBeths: MV: ::looks pleasantly impressed:: Wow. Whatever did I do to deserve this? ::she laughs quietly::
Quantum Catz: IS: Quite a lot really, especially after everything that happened with me
MaggyBeths: MV: ::the smiles fades a bit; quietly:: Oh. Well, in my way of thinking I was already rewarded for any part I played in that.
Quantum Catz: IS: Yeah but I...I'm just glad you...you're here ::Smiles:: Anyway, come on, i made dinner for us
Quantum Catz: : ::the dining room table has been set up with two candles sitting in the centre, it's obvious that Isaac's gone to quite a bit of effort::
MaggyBeths: MV: ::her eyes widen, and they grow even bigger when she sees the set up:: Wow. I'm impressed. ::she glances toward the kitcen; jokingly:: Are you sure you don't have Dolly hidden away in there?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: Well i maybe asked her for a few tips but i promise it was all my own work
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she smiles, and takes a seat.:: Looks like you've worked harder today than I have.
Quantum Catz: IS: It was kind of relaxing, and no one really needed my help today which made it even better
MaggyBeths: MV. That's good. Guess you've probably managed to heal the entire town of Marquis and then some these past few years.
Quantum Catz: IS: I'm sure there must be someone around who keeps themself out of trouble
MaggyBeths: MV: Yes, but where is the fun in that?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: I guess it could be relaxing occasionally
MaggyBeths: MV: Only if occasionally means there's a small lag inbetween adventures... then I'm okay with that.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: I have wine to go with the food, would you like some?
MaggyBeths: MV: ::smiles back:: Um, sure.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::goes to get the wine and pours them both a glass::
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she bites her lip as she glances around the table, thinking this is more than a little fancy. She self-consciously smooths out the wrinkles in her blue dress::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::feels rather nervous too and quickly goes off to serve the food::
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she takes a bite of her freshly prepared salad:: I can't believe you went to all this trouble. It's wonderful though. ::she smiles at him::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles at her:: I'm glad you like it
MaggyBeths: MV: Of course I do. Were you afraid I wouldn't? ::she smiles teasingly, suddenly thinking that was what he was so nervous about::
Quantum Catz: IS: I just want you to have a good night tonight
MaggyBeths: MV: I'm with you so the only thing that could possibly top *that* off is if there is a chocolate cake back there.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::the rest of the meal goes well, as far as Isaac's concerned, and for dessert, he does in fact have chocolate cake - he knew that with Maeve as his girlfriend, no fancy meal would be complete without it::
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she grins when he comes out with it.:: I knew I could count on you.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: I think i know you well enough by now to know i couldn't get away with not brining you chocolate
MaggyBeths: MV: ::grins even more:: Well, I'd hope so. ::she looks around for the knife to cut it with, more than ready to dig in::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::watches her, smiling; he looks like he wants to say something, but he's not sure how, and he's rather nervous::
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she gets her piece, takes a bite, and looks up, but is rather caught off guard by him watching her. Her eyes dart around nervously, then after a few seconds she swallows:: Is there already some chocolate on my face?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::laughs:: No, i was just thinking how beautiful you were...and how lucky i am...
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she smiles, and looks away for a moment:: Thank you. I think I'm pretty lucky too. This chocolate is awesome. ::she smiles teasingly, since it's not really the chocolate she's referring to::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles back:: Maeve, I...I wanted to...say...I mean to ask...
MaggyBeths: MV: Ask what?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::for what seems like an eternity to him, Isaac hesitates, the words frozen in his mouth, and then he gets up and goes to kneel next to Maeve, smiling up at her::
MaggyBeths: MV: ::her jaw drops at the same moment her fork clatters onto her plate. Wide eyes stare back at him, and while she isn't poised to run, she's still rather frozen in time::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::feeling horribly nervous:: Maeve...you are the most amazing woman I've ever met. I wanted to meet you from the moment I saw your picture and knowing you has made me happier than I ever thought I could be ::takes a deep breath and pulls a small ring box from his pocket, opening it to reveal a beautiful engagement ring:: I dont know what i would do if you weren't a part of my life and i want everyone to know that as much as i hope you already do. Maeve... will you marry me?
MaggyBeths: MV: ::her gaze falls to the ring, and she swallows hard. Taking a deep breath, she brings her eyes back up to meet his; whispers:: Yes. ::she looks like she could say more, even opens her mouth to do so, but nothing comes out. She laughs nervously::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::grins at her as if he can't believe it's actually happening:: Really?
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she bites her lip, looking a litle nervous then quietly adds:: Yes. I'm scared out of my mind, but I know it's what I want. I don't know what you'd want with a wife that can't cook because in order to do *this* ::she points to the food:: I really would need to hide Dolly in the kitchen!
Quantum Catz: IS: Laughs:: I'm sure i'll manage to cope somehow ::takes the ring out of its box and reaches for her hand to slip it on her finger::
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she smiles, but her hand is shaking slightly::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::his hands are shaking slightly too, but he gets the ring on and then kisses her hand, lightly::
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she sucks in another deep breath and slowly lets it out; softly.:: I think you're suppose to seal the promise with a real kiss. ::she smiles::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles up at her and then pulls her head gently down to kiss her::
MaggyBeths: MV: ::she kisses him back, and this time rests in the knowledge that at least this time she means it::
