~Thursday, August 8, 1935~

Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiling, Maeve pushes the door open to Libby's shop, arriving at her usual ten minutes past the hour. Things have been quiet, and while it wasn't the easiest thing in the world, she's adjusted well into her new life- as anyone could well see by the ever present smile on her face. She glances around for her friend and employer; cheerfully:: Hello, I'm here. Libby?
YarnKittymon: : ::though the door is unlocked, Libby's nowhere to be seen::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::a frown slowly replaces the smile on her face as she moves towards the counter to place her purse in the cabinet; a little bit louder:: Libby?
YarnKittymon: : ::there's no response::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she puts her purse in the cabinet then moves towards the door to where the storage room is. Opening the door, she peeks inside:: Libby?
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve doesn't see anything at all, though she hears a slight thudding coming from deep within the room, behind a rack of clothes. Then, suddenly, she hears the front entrance door lock.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes widen, but her attention immediately snaps towards the front of the store; hesitantly:: Libby?
YarnKittymon: : ::a man is leaning against the locked the front door. He's dressed all in black and looks fairly non-descript, with a hat pulled down low, hiding his eyes. There's a smirk on his lips:: Good day.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she stares at him in stunned silence for what feels like minutes; then once she's regained her senses, sharply:: Um, who are you? What do you think you are doing? And where's Libby?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man frowns, then nods:: Sure. I suppose you deserve to know that much. You can call me Michael if you like. I'm doing my job. And Mrs. Richards is right where you were looking for her, locked solidly inside of one of her own trunks.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her heart stops then starts again as her eyes dart between the man, and the back of the room.:: I'd ask why but I'm afraid I wouldn't like the answer. :: She swallows hard before she darts into the back room, slams the door shut, and attempts to lock it::
YarnKittymon: : ::the lock on the back room door has been dismantled, so there's just the knob left::
YarnKittymon: : ::Michael calmly walks to the back of the room, after Maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::groans loudly; then mutters:: Well, so much for preserving the store. ::she makes a fireball, yanks the door open, and glowers at the man:: You have five seconds to get out of here before I burn you alive. And don't think I will. Just ask the last 50 people or so I've had run-ins with!
YarnKittymon: : ::the man laughs softly, and then raises his hand, making a fireball of his own:: Oh?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::the color drains from her face, and she gulps:: Well, why do I suddenly feel like the old phrase fighting fire with fire isn't going to help me here? ::she tosses it at him anyway:: What is it that you want? Cause I have other tricks up my sleeves *pal*!
YarnKittymon: : ::the man is a bit surprised when his clothes catch on fire--surprised, but not hurt. He quickly pats them out. In the process, he loses his hat, and Maeve can see that his eyes are glowing a bright red. After a moment, he launches a new fireball at Maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she gasps, but her reflexes are good since she swiftly bring her forearm up to cover her face::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man pulls a long knife from under his singed jacket:: No more games, missy.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she swallows hard again:: Okay, seriously, if you wanted the cash box why didn't you just say so? It's right over there. ::she points to it::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smiles grimly:: Open it for me.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns, feeling a little frustrated:: Its removable. Just pick it up and take it.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man shakes his head:: I don't want to be seen walking out of here with a lockbox.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shakes her head:: No. I'm not doing anything unless you back all the way up to the door.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man shrugs:: Fine. I hear there's not enough money in that lockbox to be bothered about, anyway. ::suddenly runs at Maeve, holding the knife tightly::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::for a second she's too stunned to move, but she finally gets her feet to move her back into the back room where she once again slams the door shut. She tries putting all of her weight against it; frantically:: Libby, this would be a really good time for your powers to work! Seriously, is this really worth a stupid cash box! ::she refuses to think he could be after anything else::
YarnKittymon: : ::Michael is restrained only temporarily before he starts trying to bash the door; Maeve can also hear muffled shouts coming from one corner::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she digs her heels in, and puts her back up against it while she scans the room for any possible weapons:: Libby!
YarnKittymon: : ::there's no conventional weapons; Maeve could try swinging a wooden hanger at him, or possibly try to lift a clothes rack, but they're all full of unsold stock; the muffled yells continue, but Maeve can't understand the words::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her heart is hammering in her chest, and she's completely pale now, unnable to shake the truth of the matter. It's 1935. And she's really about to die. And there's no way she can hold this door forever::
YarnKittymon: : ::Michael bashes the door harder, getting a running start, this time::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she jolt sends Maeve flying across the room, and into the clothes rack where she struggles for a moment to stand up. She has her hand on the wooden hanger now though so that's better than nothing::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man laughs softly:: The boss will give me a bonus to hear Miss Richards was able to hear your screams loud and clear before I killed her too. ::he raises the dagger, forming a fireball in his other hand, to shield himself from the hanger::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::a small sob catches in her throat, and she shakes her head:: No. No. If this is going to happen there's no need to involve her! ::she chucks the hanger at him then reaches for a box::
YarnKittymon: : Look, Maeve, if you just hold still, I can make it so you hardly feel it. ::Michael deflects the hanger with his left hand, making it catch fire, and then walks forward again, knowing a box won't stop him, and knowing he's edging Maeve into a corner::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she throws the box at him too, desperate for anything at the moment. Her eyes dart around again, looking for a spray can, a bucket, hose, anything!:: Why? I haven't made anyone mad in months! Who are you working for?
YarnKittymon: : ::there's nothing but clothes to throw; Maeve could maybe displace a rack as well::
YarnKittymon: : ::Michael just approaches:: I'll tell you as I kill you. Promise.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shakes her head:: I think I'd rather not know then. ::she lunges for the rack, and tries to push it over on him, at least distract him long enough to get out this corner::
YarnKittymon: : ::Michael sets the whole rack of clothes on fire, trying to form a barricade to intimidate Maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she groans, knowing she can't leave Libby stuck in the trunk now that there's a fire loose. It doesn't intimidate her all that much as she makes a run for the trunk, patting down any flames that catch on her clothes::
YarnKittymon: : ::Michael yells:: Get back! ::and runs after Maeve; since her back is turned he fancies he'll have a pretty easy shot of stabbing her in the back, and he tries it::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::screams:: Libby! ::as the knife sinks in to her back.::
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve is almost within reach of the trunk, which shakes as Libby tries desperately to kick her way out::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she whimpers, as she tries to stumble away from him, and the knife::
YarnKittymon: : ::Michael grabs Maeve by the shoulder and pulls her close, pressing his lips to her ear from behind; softly:: It's revenge for what Miss Richards did to your brother, back at Steeplechase. ::and he digs the knife in again, starting the blade low and aiming it upwards, something he knows should be fatal::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she can't stop the ear splitting scream from leaving her throat. His words take a while to register in her brain, and through the pain the only thing she can think of is that she doesn't have a brother::
YarnKittymon: : ::Michael draws the blade out, knowing he doesn't have much time to waste in the building, which is already starting to burn; he throws Maeve aside and takes out his key, unlocking the trunk::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she drops to the floor like a useless ragdoll, landing on her side with a good view of the trunk. She coughs, her mouth filling up with blood. Whimpering a small no, she struggles to form one last fireball, enough to at least stop him from killing Libby. Weakly, she tosses it at him. As soon as it leaves her fingers, life leaves her body, and she sinks fully against the floor.::
YarnKittymon: : ::Michael just gets the trunk open and is looking down at Libby's terrified, tear-streaked face, when he's struck from behind with a fireball. He's vulnerable to it, now, and he screams as the white-hot flames overtake him::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is tied at the wrists and ankles, but manages to sit up, coughing; screams:: Maeve!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her lifeless green eyes stare back at Libby from her contorted position on the floor. A trail of blood makes its way down her neck, standing out starkly against her pale white skin. The front of her green dress, just below the wound, is soaked with blood as is the floor underneath her::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::her eyes just flood with tears, partly from the smoke, but mostly in horror; she screams:: Maeve! Someone! Help! ::and then she breaks down coughing::

Quantum Catz: : ::it's not long before people start to notice the fire, and while others are busy sorting out putting it out, Jack runs straight in to find Libby and Maeve:: Libby?
Quantum Catz: : ::it's not long before people start to notice the fire, and while others are busy sorting out putting it out, Jack runs to the door to get in to libby. He's surprised to find it locked and rather suspicious, but, more worried about Libby than whatever might have happened, he kicks at the door till it gives way and runs in shouting her name::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is in the back, trying to get out of the trunk, and coughing terribly, as that's where the fire is; she can't even see for the smoke, but screams, hoarsely:: Jack!
Quantum Catz: JK: ::runs into the back room, freezing for a moment when he sees Maeve:: What...?
YarnKittymon: : ::not too far from Maeve is the body of a man that Jack just may be able to recognize as someone he met once or twice among the types who would do certain "odd jobs" with no questions asked, and past him, though it's hard to see for the smoke, is Libby, screaming almost hysterically, trying to get out of the trunk she was locked in, or at least to stand up::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shakes his head to try and clear it, then runs to Libby, he coughs as the smoke gets thicker, though his shield protects him from the flames::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::coughing terribly:: Maeve! Save Maeve!
Quantum Catz: JK: ::mutters:: I need to get *you* out of here
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head, breaking into a further coughing fit; she tries to get down closer to the floor, where the air is somewhat better::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::tries to lead her to the front of the shop:: I'll come back for Maeve once you're out ::coughs again::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is too weak to really fight against Jack, though she certainly tries::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::looks down at Maeve as they pass and winces at the amount of blood, not feeling very optimistic; keeps Libby going to the front of the shop::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::hears rumors of a fire as he's walking to a friend's, and goes completely pale when he hears where it is--without a word, he runs full-speed back to his home, screaming:: Isaac!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::runs over to Libby and Jack when she sees them come out; she hasn't felt well recently and has been unable to teleport either, so she felt rather helpless when she realised what was happening:: Libby, are you okay? Where's Maeve?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::comes out from the kitchen when he hears Josh:: What's wrong?
Quantum Catz: JK: Look after her, i need to go back in ::shouts:: Someone go get Isaac!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is close to Becky, looking every bit as worried::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::practically collapses into Becky's arms, sobbing wordlessly::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::wide-eyed:: They say Miss Richards's shop is burning.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::runs back into the shop, and drops to his knees next to Maeve; checks for a pulse::
Maeve Owens: ::she could be cold to the touch, though with the fire there she might still feel a little warm. He cant detect a pulse though::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::stares at Josh for a moment and then runs for the door::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head, looking at Libby, murmuring:: No. ::glances at Becky:: I'm going after her. ::and goes to follow Jack::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::closes his eyes for a moment, then sighs and murmurs:: I'm sorry, kid. ::but he lifts her into his arms anyway, hoping that maybe Isaac can work some kind of miracle::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::holds Libby tightly; softly:: Jack'll bring her out, Toby
YarnKittymon: : ::the fire's really raging now, and most of the clothes are on fire in the back room, and some in the front as well::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::coughs as he reaches the front door, ignoring Becky::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::runs after Isaac, trying not to cry::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::is just heading out to the front room as Toby enters, looking sombre::
YarnKittymon: : ::the fire truck has arrived, but they have little more than buckets to use::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::steps inside, instinctively forming water out of air as he goes; shouts:: Jack!
Quantum Catz: JK: ::mutters:: The fire's gettting worse, get out of here, Toby ::strides towards the front door with Maeve in his arms::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::yells:: Is there anyone else inside?
Quantum Catz: JK: ::rather darkly:: No one worth bothering about
YarnKittymon: TY: ::accepts that, and retreats from the building; quietly, though glaring:: Set her down. I'll fix her up.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::murmurs:: I don't think fixing her up'll do much good ::but he lowers her down anyway, far enough away fromm Libby and Becky for them not to see::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::can't believe how pale Maeve is, and is somewhat afraid to touch her, for fear the body's cold; he curses softly:: You can't...
Quantum Catz: JK: ::softly:: Unless someone has a miracle up their sleeve, I honestly don't think... ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks up at Jack, desperately:: Isaac! Someone get Isaac!
Quantum Catz: IS: ::finally reaches the shop, though it seemed to him to take forever:: Maeve! ::he sees her lying next to Toby an Jack and runs over to them, tears in his eyes::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::gasps when he sees all the blood on Maeve's dress; he steps backwards, covering his mouth, ready to start sobbing::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::puts one shaking hand under Maeve's back, to heal up the wounds there; softly:: Pray for a miracle, Isaac.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::tries to speak but just can't seem to voice the words, through his tears he presses his hands her body and prays for someone out there to give his powers the strength to bring her back to him::
Maeve Owens: ::nothing happens for what seems like forever, then suddenly, her body convulses, and she coughs, trying to dispel the blood still lodged in her lungs::
Quantum Catz: IS: Oh god, Maeve, maeve ::keeps using his powers, trying to give her any energy that he possibly can::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::belatedly pulls away from Maeve, so as not to accidentally absorb any of Isaac's energy::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her hands start to come up to shield herself from whoever is above her, but when Isaac speaks, and her hands collide with his arms she latches on tightly. She continues to cough even as she attempts to sit up::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::tries to help her sit but is feeling dizzy from all the energy he's used and can't really support her::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks up in disbelief::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is still sobbing, completely oblivious to the world around her::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::the sight of all the blood on maeve didn't really help her illness and she feels like she wants to throw up, though the sight of Maeve moving fills her with relief))
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her coughing subsides, though she's started to shake, and the only thing she seems to be aware of at the moment is her need to curl up into Isaac's arms.::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::hoarsely:: Maeve...you okay?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she looks up at Toby, though she looks rather disoriented, and slightly shakes her head no. Though that might not be in direct answer to his question. Suddenly, her eyes widen, and her grip on Isaac tightens even more; panicked:: Where's Libby? He had Libby! :she weakly struggles to get somewhere, though she herself probably isn't sure where that is::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::her sobs subside for just a moment, as she thinks she hears someone calling her name; she looks up cautiously, her face still streaked with tears washing away the soot in streams::
Quantum Catz: JK: Libby's fine, she's with Becky ::looks over at Libby to check that she is alright::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is still coughing sporadically, and looks about ready to fall over; she's still relying on Becky to hold her up; softly:: Maeve...
Quantum Catz: JK: ::gets up and moves over to Libby::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up helplessly at Jack:: Is...is Maeve...
Quantum Catz: JK: She's alright...i think. Isaac got her back
YarnKittymon: LB: ::lets go of Becky and hugs Jack, hard, sobbing:: She saved my life, Jack...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she collapses back against Isaac, and closes her eyes, thankfull that Libby was okay::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::his expression hardens:: Did that guy say anything to you? Like who sent him?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: No...he knew who I was, though. ::shakily:: He said he was saving me for last.
Quantum Catz: JK: Well, it's over now ::though he doesn't look like he believes it::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::in a small voice, wiping a few tears away:: Did you know him?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::holds Maeve tightly, though he's feeling too tired to do much other than occasionally say her name, as if that will keep her next to him::
Quantum Catz: JK: I met him a couple of times, he's one of those 'no questions asked' kinda guys
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: Which...which one of us do you think he was after?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she has one fist wrapped tightly into his shirt. She glances down at the rest of her, noticing the blood for the first time. She goes pale again, shuddering; weakly:: Isaac? I think... I think I want to go home now.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shakes his head:: I don't know, and i doubt Maeve's really up for being asked about what he said to her right now
Quantum Catz: IS ::nods, weakly,, kissing her head and pausing for a moment, just to remind himself that she's really alright:: Okay
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is still very shaky, but pulls away from Jack, walking towards her burning shop, and looking around, calling softly:: Maeve?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she takes a deep breath before she dares look at Libby. She pulls self consciously at her bloody dress::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::drops to her knees beside Maeve, putting a hand on her shoulder; she'd hug her if she wasn't so firmly latched on to Isaac; softly:: You saved my life, Maeve, no doubt about it. Thank you. And I'm sorry...if he was there because of me.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::follows behind Libby, standing nearby::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she stares at Libby for a moment before she shudders, and turns her face towards Isaac's chest; brokenly:: It had to do with Steeplechase. And... ::she shakes her head, unable to even wrap her mind around the implications::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::her jaw drops, and she shakes her head; softly:: No...it wasn't him...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::has made his way back to Becky, and puts an arm around her waist; softly:: Are you all right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shakes her head:: I don't know! I don't know who he is! ::her shoulders heave with silent tears::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head; softly:: I'm sorry...that just means...::takes a deep breath, then looks back at Jack, eyes wide:: Milo's all right, isn't he?
Quantum Catz: JK: He was with Dolly - why, what's going on?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::tries to talk, but she's shaking terribly; turns back to Maeve:: Go home, Maeve...get some rest.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::nods, though she has her hand on her stomach and looks a bit feverish::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shakes her head; crying softly:: I shouldn't. It's not over... ::a single sob escapes, and she shakes her head again::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at the shop; the fire hasn't spread throughout, but there's quite a bit of smoke; softly:: The place will be a total loss.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sighs, turning back to Jack:: Back on Coney, some people came and killed one of our friends. One of them...I sent forward in time, far away from us. About the only time my power's ever worked right. And now...I suppose he's back.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::hugs Maeve, though he's listening to what Libby says to Jack::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: At least everyone's okay
Quantum Catz: JK: ::frowns:: Why were they trying to kill your friend?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::very softly:: Think we'll be able to convince them to leave now?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she whimpers against Isaac in answer to Jack's question::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::in a small voice:: Because that person could change her form...and had changed to look like Maeve.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: A new start might be good for Libby ::starts to cough but quickly makes herself stop::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Should I be taking you home to rest?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shakes her head, brushing some hair back from her face:: No, i...want to know what happened ::turns towards the other four::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, leading Becky to be a little closer to them::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::frowns, remembering hearing something similar from Maeve before he lost his memories, but any details she told him have been blurred::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::looks at Maeve:: And why were they after you?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shakes her head; crying weakly:: I don't know. It doesn't make any sense!
Quantum Catz: JK: ::raises an eyebrow:: You don't know why someone was out to kill you?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she opens her mouth to say more, but the words just wont come, and she shakes her head again::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::doesn't look too convinced:: He's probably fine, but i'm gonna go check on Milo anyway ::glances at Libby:: Will you be okay here?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods once; quietly:: Might as well watch it burn...
Quantum Catz: JK: ::sighs:: It'll be alright ::leans down to kiss her lightly, then heads to Isaac's house to find Dolly and Milo::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she cringes; mutters:: I'm sorry Libby.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head; softly:: It's my fault; you know that. If I hadn't sent him forward, this wouldn't have happened.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::confused, since she wasn't with them: Sent who forward?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shudders again, and takes a deep breath. She wants to say, but somehow voicing it might make it even worse::
Quantum Catz: IS: :Softly:: you need to rest, Maeve, let's get you home
Maeve Owens: MV: ::panicked:: No! No, I can't. I wont put you and the kids, or anyone else in danger. ::she shakes her head::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: A man was trying to kill Maeve...I sent him forward in time. Now we've caught up with him, and he sent someone after us.
Quantum Catz: BM: You mean the guy that shot you in Steeplechase park?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods once::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::in a quiet voice:: 1935 isn't over yet.
Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve...whatever's happening or has happened, you still need to rest
Maeve Owens: MV: I can't. I can't go home. Look what I did to Libby's? ::she whimpers, and just about gives into hysterical sobbing::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sharply:: Maeve, it's just a shop!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she flinches::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: I'm sorry, Maeve. But...I'd lost you. I'd trade the shop a dozen times, to keep you with us.
Quantum Catz: BM: If you won't go home then at least come to our place and then you can sit down somewhere other than the street
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she tenses, and slowly lifts her head to look around;quietly:: I don't want to lead *him* to your place either, Becky. ::she sniffs, and finally lets go of Isaac's shirt to wipe the stray tears from her face::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: He's after me too, Maeve. Maybe even more so.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I doubt he's standing around watching us and it would be pretty easy for him to find out where your friends live anyway
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she cringes then attempts to get up:: Then I'm going to find him and end this for good! He wants me, well he can have me. I'm tired of getting to just where everything is perfect, and then bam!
YarnKittymon: LB: Maeve!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grabs Maeve by the shoulder as she stands up:: Don't you dare!
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sharply:: Maeve, you were *dead*, we're not going to sit and let you run off and get yourself killed again. We're lucky you could be brought back the first time
Maeve Owens: MV: ::was about to snap at Toby, and is trying to jerk out of his grasp, but she tenses at Isaac's words:: What....? ::she goes pale again, and she shakes her head:: What do you mean I was dead?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shudders, shaking her head::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she closes her eyes, and for a second she starts to cry, but she shakes her head, pulling on her arms again:: No, no, he has some bone to pick with my family, and if it's going to end then I have to find him before someone else gets hurt!
YarnKittymon: TY: Then we'll track him down together.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::nods, looking pale himself:: I don't want to lose you, yu can't just run off on your own
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she stumbles away, and almost falls without the support of Toby's grasp:: I don't want anyone else hurt! I'll get Harry! He's good at keeping himself *alive*!
Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves to stop her leaving:: Maeve, you can barely stand!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods, standing up tiredly, and coughing:: We'll figure a way to stop him, Maeve, but this isn't it!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she almost breaks down again as she looks pleadingly at Isaac:: I cant wait around again. I need to know why he's doing this. Why he thinks- ::she cringes, and shakes her head::
Quantum Catz: IS: Well you'll *have* to wait, because i'm not letting you go anywhere like this
YarnKittymon: TY: There's enough of us, we'll set up watches if we have to.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::a small sob escapes her, and she shakes her head::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::reaches out to hold her again:: It'll be okay, this just isn't the way to do it
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she goes into his arms willingly, and burries her face in his neck. She shakes her head, trying not to fully break down here:: Its the fastest way Isaac.*Before* anyone else gets hurt. I won't live with myself if anything happ
Maeve Owens: ens to any of you over this. *Again*.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: I told you, it's my doing as much as yours...and you protected me anyway. ::wipes her eyes::
Maeve Owens: MV: That doesn't mean I want him coming after you again!
YarnKittymon: TY: Look, it'll be a day or two before he knows his man failed, right?
YarnKittymon: LB: We'll get with Jack and come up with a plan.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she just wants to cry since she definitely doesn't want them getting involved in fear of them being killed::
Quantum Catz: IS: Look, we don't want someone coming after you anymore than you want him coming after us, so you're just going to have to deal with it and we'll work it out together
Maeve Owens: MV: I can't. I can't, I need to go Isaac. ::she whimpers, shaking from the effort of trying not to break down in public.::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sighs; softly:: Isaac, can we count on you to keep her from going out? I think we're making things worse.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shakes her head; brokenly:: I won't go home...
YarnKittymon: LB: Then we'll get you a room at the tavern for now.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: We both need to rest, Maeve, if anything hapened to you right now there'd be nothing i could do
YarnKittymon: JH: ::finally comes back to the scene; his eyes are deep red, though he's wiped his cheeks dry::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::slowly starts to dissolve into a gunt wrenching sobs. Yes she died, yes its still 1935, and yes, its very likely fate isn't done with her yet::
Quantum Catz: IS: Come on, if you don't want to go home then i'll take you to the tavern, okay?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods, and continues to snob into his neck, not moving::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::tries to gently guide her along the road::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::follows them:: I'll close the window and keep an eye on the door.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she stops long enough to look back at the rest of the group:: Libby... she'll need to come too.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks down:: If it'll make you feel better. And as long as Jack can get Milo somewhere safe.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods::
Quantum Catz: BM: Milo could go to the orphanage for a couple of days if you want, he'd be safe there
Maeve Owens: MV: ::suddenly panicked again:: And the kids! ::she looks up at Isaac:: You have to go look after the kids... they could be an easy enough target now. ::her eyes start to well up with tears, and she looks more than a little guilty, and a bit afraid::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods to Becky; softly:: I can't think of a better place.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is close enough to hear Maeve, and he walks forward and suddenly hugs her, trying not to cry again::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly at Josh, resting an arm on his shoulders:: Maeve...Eli can look after Josh and Dolly a lot better than i could if they're in danger
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she jumps a little at Josh's sudden presence, but she manages to let go of Isaac in order to rest a hand on the kid's arm. She opens her mouth to protest, but figures Isaac might be right:: I just, I just don't want anything to happen to them.
Quantum Catz: IS: And it won't, i promise
YarnKittymon: JH: ::shakes his head, pulling back from Maeve:: You have to *promise* to stay safe!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::forces a weak smile for Josh's sake:: I have at least four guard dogs around me Josh, and they aren't letting me do anything. You just promise *me* you'll stay safe with Eli and Dolly.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::frowns, glancing at Isaac:: I'm not a kid anymore; I can help.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looking tired:: Neither's Eli but i don't want him involved in this either, i want the three of you to stay home and look after each other so i know you're safe
YarnKittymon: JH: ::quietly:: You really think Eli will just stay home?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she goes deathly pale again, and starts to shake again; alarmed:: Well, no! None of you are getting anywhere near this mess!
Quantum Catz: IS: ::tries to stop Maeve shaking:: Eli will stay home, because it's the only way i can be sure you three are safe
YarnKittymon: JH: ::swallows hard, jamming his hands in his pockets:: Maeve, Isaac...if either of you die, I'm never forgiving you.
Quantum Catz: IS: It's not going to happen, i'm not going to let it happen
Maeve Owens: MV: Go with him Isaac. Make sure they don't get involved. ::she pleads brokenly, though her grip tightens on him since the last thing she really wants is for him to leave her::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates and then looks over at Toby:: Look after her, i'll go talk to the kids and then meet you at the tavern
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she tears up again:: You'll have to stay with them Isaac...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods:: Will do. ::glances at Maeve:: The kids won't listen to Josh; you know that.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::waits for his brother, looking away::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::glancing down, she makes herself let go of him::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks at Maeve:: I'll see you at the tavern once i've talked to Eli ::kisses her head, not wanting to leave her, but forces himself to move away wit Josh::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she squeezes her eyes shut then covers her face with her hands, unable to watch them walk away in fear of that being the last she ever sees of them::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::puts an arm over Maeve's shoulder; softly:: We're going to get through this.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::moves over to Maeve, touching her arm:: Come on, let's get you inside
YarnKittymon: TY: ::keeps his eyes open for danger, forming a few knives, just out of instinct::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods her head then mutters weakly:: After everything... I cant believe it happened. Or will happen... ::she shudders::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head; softly:: I should've believed you. Especially...*today.*
Maeve Owens: MV: I shouldn't have denied it was going to happen. ::she bites her lip, closing her eyes for a second only to trip over the threshold of the tavern::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::tries to keep Maeve from falling::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grabs Maeve as well:: Careful now.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she looks up, tries to smile, but just nods to them:: I'm fine.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::goes forward before Maeve can, to get a room for Libby and Maeve::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::starts to cough again, resting her hand on the wall for support::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she still doesn't look too thrilled over there involvement, and when Becky starts to cough, she glances her away, immediately alarmed:: Are you okay? What else happened that I don't know about?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces:: Nothing, i've just got a bug or something, i'm fine
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns, and watches her a moment longer before she finally looks away::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks back when he hears Becky cough, and is on his way to her side when he hears her insist she's fine, so he gets back to paying for the room::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::finally comes back with the keys, motioning to the stairs:: Come on. ::takes Becky's hand::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::weakly moves up the stairs::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows::
YarnKittymon: : ::the room has two fairly large beds and a little table in the middle with chairs; it's the nicest one in the tavern::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::goes to sit on one of the chairs, feeling a bit queasy again::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks at the beds then glances back out the door. She's exhausted, but there's more she could be doing right now other than sleeping::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::scratches his head, watching Becky; softly:: Once Jack and Isaac are back, maybe we should take you to the doctor. I know Isaac's in no shape to heal anyone, but maybe you could get some medicine.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sits on one of the beds but doesn't dare lay down; hugs her arms tightly to herself::
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm fine, really
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances around then edges back towards the door:: Um, I'm just going to the restroom... ::goes out into the hall, and shuts the door::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::gets up quickly, running after Maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she hears him coming so she heads for the restroom anyway, hoping he'll see where she's going, and go away::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::follows Maeve anyway, standing guard outside the door, never mind that he's leaving Libby unguarded--though, he figures if it comes to it, Becky should be able to teleport Libby to safety::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs at Libby:: Does Maeve ever listen to reason?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiling sadly:: You've known her as long as I have...but I'd say, not really.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::searches for a window::
YarnKittymon: : ::there is a good-sized window, though they're on the second floor::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she opens it, and hopes theres a way down via pipe or emergency ladder::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's not so much as an overhang below, let alone a pipe or a ladder::
Quantum Catz: BM: If she's feeling as tired as i am then i doubt she'll get too far ::smirks and then coughs again::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she groans, and slides down against the wall, wanting to cry again::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shudders; quietly:: Becky, no one even tried to kill *you* today...are you sure you're not ill?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::when it's quiet for too long, Toby gently knocks and calls:: Maeve? You in there?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Of course I am. Its not like they supply this thing with an emergency ladder!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sighs in relief:: Good.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates:: To be honest...i think i might be pregnant...not that that would completely explain how ill i feel but... ::shrugs and rubs at her eyes::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::eyes widen:: Becky...congratulations...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sighs, and pulls herself up. She moves towards the door and pushes it open, glaring at Toby:: If any of you get hurt I'm never going to forgive you. ::starts to stalk off::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::hurries to catch up to Maeve; quietly:: Jack *can't* get hurt, remember? We'll figure out a plan.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: Thanks... i...haven't told Toby yet though, i've been too busy, you know, feeling like crap to really think about it
Maeve Owens: MV: ::snaps:: He can't protect *all* of you! ::she turns back quickly to face Toby, intending to plead with him to let her go, but the motion makes her dizzy and she starts to topple over::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods:: This probably isn't the best time to bring it up...although you probably should go home, or to the orphanage--somewhere safe.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grabs Maeve, fairly roughly, to keep her from falling:: We all get a good night's sleep before we try anything.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: If i did that he really would start to wonder what was wrong - and i want to be here
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: But you can't just think of him and yourself, anymore...if you're right, at least.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::fighting back tears; weakly:: But you still wont let me go. I don't want to be a danger to any of you.
YarnKittymon: TY: It sounds like Libby's as much to blame for all this as you are, Maeve. I know you're proud, but we're not going to let you go that easy.
Quantum Catz: BM: I'll be fine, we already agreed that this guy probably won't know you two aren't dead for the next couple of days anyway
Maeve Owens: MV: ::a tear escapes, and she nods, too weak to argue anymore::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::leads Maeve back into their room, closing and locking the door behind him:: Wonder when Isaac and Jack will get here.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles softly:: When I woke up this morning, I had no idea I'd be in for a co-ed sleepover.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: We should get ice-cream, ice-cream always makes for a great sleepover
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smirks, thinking of their nights on the road when they were traveling up here::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: Sure, I could bring some back...unless you'd rather I made it myself.
Maeve Owens: MV: Is it going to taste like that so called milkshake you made me drink?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: I'm a *bit* better now, but food still isn't my forte.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::pretends to think about it for a moment; mutters:: umm, I think I'll pass
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: I think we all will
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: Come on. Isn't that something girls do at sleepovers? Dare each other to eat disgusting things?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she blinks, then frowns, not sure if she's ever even had a sleepover::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles softly:: Not when *I* was a girl, but maybe things are different where you come from.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::after a while, there's a knock on the door:: Hey, it's us
MV: ::doesn't know whether to be relieved, or worried, but she goes to open the door anyway::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::stands close behind Maeve, just in case::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::standing next to Jack in the hallway, looking tired while Jack looks grim::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::worriedly:: Are the kids going to stay put? Are you sure you *someone* shouldn't be there with them?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns; quietly:: Honestly, if they'd wanted to go after kids, they probably could've got Milo and Dolly both, before they went to the shop.
Quantum Catz: IS: I talked to Eli and made it pretty clear to him that i needed him to stay there and look out for the other two
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is rather pale at the thought of someone hurting her son::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::moves over to Libby:: Eli took Milo over to the orphanage before we left him, there's no reason anyone would look for him there, and i doubt this guy would go after him anyway
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods weakly; whispers:: I hope you're right.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she still doesn't look okay with this::
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, what do we do now?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::mutters:: You could spare yourselves and just let me go after this guy. He must be afraid of me if he went to the trouble of hiring someone...to kill me.
Quantum Catz: JK: Or he's just a lousy wimp and didn't have the guts to face you himself, since the last time Libby ended up whisking him through time
Maeve Owens: MV: ::murmurs:: He hired someone the other two times as well.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: Two times?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she grimaces, and moves to sit down before she falls down:: SteepleChase. The guy that was with him was a hired hit man. He killed my parents, and that would be the first time.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves with Maeve to sit down beside her, holding her hand tightly but not sure what he can say to comfort her::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::in a low voice:: We're going to stop him, Maeve. I'm sure the whole guard will be with us, if we ask.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns, surprised they haven't come in yet to interrogate her::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: Do they even know it wasn't an accident?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Accident, self defense, seems they try to string you up for anything.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::still in a low voice:: Do you know anything else about the fella, except that he wanted to kill us?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shrugs, and shakes her head:: Other than he's insane because he *thinks* he's my brother? ::flatly:: No.
YarnKittymon: TY: *What*?
Quantum Catz: IS: Why does he think he's your brother?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frustrated:: How should I know? It *doesn't* make sense! ;:tiredly wipes at her sore, and slightly red, eyes::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: Well, it's a clue, at least. ::frowns, glancing at Jack:: Would you have any way to find out who hired the fella?
Quantum Catz: JK: ::nods:: Yeah, i can try, i know a few of the guys he hangs out with
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: So we could get a guard for us in the meantime.
YarnKittymon: LB: That's not very subtle, Toby.
Maeve Owens: MV: Do we have to drag more people into this? Unless getting a guard means sending the three of you as far away from here as possible.
Quantum Catz: IS: You know we're not going anywhere
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sighs, and weakly leans against him; softly:: I don't even know if it would make things better if you did. I just can't sit here Isaac waiting for this guy to attack someone.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: He's only after you and me, Maeve, right? The others are safe.
Maeve Owens: MV: But they're standing in his way.
Quantum Catz: JK: We have to take the time to find out more about him before we do anything
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods:: He's not here *now*...maybe you should go investigate before he comes, Jack.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::looks at Toby:: Will you be alright making sure no one gets in here?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sits up:: Wait, I should be going too.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods to Jack seriously:: Nothing easier. ::glances back at Maeve, grimacing::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::raises an eyebrow:: You should? Why's that now?
Maeve Owens: MV: Because *its* my past we're talking about. And in a way it's *my* fight. If you're going to endanger yourself to find out information, well, I'm not just going to sit here and sleep!
Quantum Catz: JK: We're not talking about your past - we're talking about this guy and any information about him that we can get. And it stopped just being your fight when he went after Libby, so get over it and stop arguing with us
YarnKittymon: LB: Maeve, you don't want to go some of the places Jack will be going; I'm sure of it.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glares at him, too tired to come up with a proper come back. Then turns to Libby; mutters:: And I bet I've seen worse
Quantum Catz: JK: It ain't the point, kid. You're in no fit state to go anywhere anyway
Maeve Owens: MV: ::unable to even dispute that fact, since she probably cant even stand up, she just frowns at him, and looks away::
YarnKittymon: LB: Let Jack do his work, Maeve. He'll be all right.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sighs:: I don't like sitting, and waiting.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: Neither do I, Maeve, but we've managed it before.
Quantum Catz: JK: ::softly:: I had to carry your body out of that shop today, i'd be grateful if i was you, isaac ain't been so lucky with some people. Sitting and waiting isn't much of a price to pay realll
Quantum Catz: JK: ::shrugs and heads for the door:: Anyway, i'll be back as soon as i can, try to stay out of trouble
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: Be careful, Jack.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she cringes, and tries not to start crying again::
Quantum Catz: JK: ::turns and smiles at Libby:: You too ::leaves::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::tightens his grip on Maeve, remembering the moment when he saw her lying on the ground::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::as soon as the door's closed, Toby fixes it closed, so no one can get in without an axe::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sniffs, and clutches at his hand before she leans up against him again, looking for more contact as much as a resting place::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: You should get some sleep now, Maeve, if you can
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her grip tightens a little more on him; quietly:: You need to sleep too. Though, I do need to thank you bringing me back. ::she looks up at him::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly; and jokes because he doesn't really want to think about it:: Hey, i gain just as much from you being alive as you do - where would i be without your great cooking?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles weakly:: Having a lot less indigestion?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs softly::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: Come on, we'll try and sleep then
Maeve Owens: MV: ::too tired to argue, and since she definitely isn't getting out a sealed door, she movevs to slide under the covers. Though, midway she stops when she discovers she's in the same bloody dress she was in before. She frowns at it, not looking so willing to go to sleep now::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::silently forms a new dress for Maeve, handing it to her::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she reaches out to take it:: Thanks. Now do you want to make a hole so I can go change?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: Can't I just turn my back?
Maeve Owens: MV: ;:smirks:: Fine. Though we've already established I can't get out of the bathroom.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::turns his back to Maeve, whistling::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she rolls her eyes, and quickly starts to change. Though, she cringes when she peels the dress off her skin only to find dried blood still there::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::gets up; quietly:: Can you make soap and water, Toby?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, doing so::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::winces at the blood as well and takes the soap and water from Toby; he can't think of anything to say though as still all he sees is her lying there on the ground::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles slightly, thinking this has got to be the most awkward bath ever seeing that there are at least three witnesses, though one has his back turned. She reaches out for the soap anyway since there's nothing she can do about it::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::turns away politely::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::starts coughing again and rests her head on the table::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::instantly glances towards Becky; hopefully Maeve's not in his line of sight:: Becky...you should get to the doctor after all.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she's standing right next to the bed, so if the chair is there, he might be able to see her. She's busy trying to get the blood off herself though::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs, not lifting her head:: I'm fine, it's just a cough and i didn't sleep well last night, so i'm tired
YarnKittymon: TY: ::carefully makes his way over to Becky, leaning over her and running a hand over her hair:: You promise?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::murmurs:: You could get an extra room.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up at him and smiles:: Yeah, i promise
Maeve Owens: MV: ::gets as much of the blood off of her as she can then sets the stuff on the side table. She slips the dress on, and climbs into bed::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::when she hears the sheets rustling, she looks up; softly:: Sleep well, Maeve.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she just grimaces, not thinking it likely.:: If you sleep too, I aplogize for any noise in advance.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::lies down beside Maeve, not wanting to sleep until Maeve is::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: I'm not tired now. ::looks at Becky, standing up:: You're welcome to the bed; I'm not accustomed to sleeping while the sun's out.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles weakly at him before she closes her eyes. Within in minutes her breathing slows, and she drifts off to sleep::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::nods:: Yeah, maybe i will sleep for a bit
YarnKittymon: TY: ::glances over at Maeve's bed, then whispers:: Maybe Isaac can heal you later...if it's just a little, it shouldn't tire him much.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she shifts in her sleep, scooting closer to Isaac. There's a frown on her face, but she makes no noise::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I'll probably feel better after a bit of sleep ::moves over to the bed and curls up to sleep::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::puts his arm around Maeve when she frowns and lightly kisses her forehead::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::cuddles into her embrace, the frown only fading slightly::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::about a half an hour into her sleep, Maeve starts to toss and turn. Before anyone can even respond, she's screaming for her parents.::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::wakes up and reaches for her:: Maeve, Maeve, wake up
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is startled out of his thoughts, looking up in alarm::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns, looking at Maeve as well::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces at the screams and opens her eyes::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::his touch does nothing to comfort her, and she starts fighting to get away from him.::
Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve, listen to me
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she whimpers, and stops struggling, seeming to give up the fight, though she's still obviously stuck in her own world.::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::reaches out to stroke her hair back:: Maeve, it's me, you need to wake up now
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she frowns, flinching away from his hands; muttters:: please dont... ::she takes a few deeps breaths, struggling for a second before she gives up again::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::lets go of her, rather unnerved by her submissiveness::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::suddenly jerks awake, looking like she's about to scream, though no noise comes of it::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: Are you okay?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::dazed, she stares at Isaac for a moment before she slightly shakes her head. She tries to sit up; weakly:: I'm fine. Sorry... ::shakes her head again::
Quantum Catz: IS: Nightmares aren't much of a surprise after... ::sighs and reaches out to touch her but hesitates, not wanting to see her flinch again::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smirks, though she frowns when he hesitates to touch her.However, it quickly comes back to her, and she shakes her head again, and reaches for his hand; quietly:: I'm fine.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::hugs her after she reaches for his hand:: Are you sure?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she closes her eyes, sighing:: Yeah.
