Maeve Owens: MV: ::Ever since *it* happened, Maeve has had a rough time sleeping. Being in a tavern, away from a familiar bed, hasn't helped much this night either. It's a little before dawn when she starts to whimper, trying to fight against something she can't seem to get away from::
YarnKittymon: : ::the tavern seemed fairly safe, so Harry took a separate room without another thought, and is sleeping soundly, separate from his married travel companions::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::groans a bit as Maeve's wimpering wakes him up:: Maeve, you okay?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she whimpers again, and inches away from him, getting dangerously close to the edge::
Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve? ::opens his eyes and reaches for her to stop her from falling off the bed::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she yelps, and tenses, just waiting for something to happen::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::worried again at the way she reacts to him touching her, pulls away and says, louder:: Maeve, wake up
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she jerks awake, gasping::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: Are you okay?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she blinks, taking a few seconds to clear her head, and figure out where she is. She finally nods; quietly:: Yeah, I'm fine...
Quantum Catz: IS: You nearly fell out of the bed...what were you dreaming about?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::wincing, she pushes herself up to a sitting position, delaying her response; softly:: I think it would be easier to tell what I *wasn't* dreaming about. ::she coughs, and looks away:: We don't have to go into this Isaac. I'm fine.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates:: But when i tried to touch you...you just froze...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she tenses, thinking over her dream, but in the end, not wanting to get all serious over it, she teases softly:: Would you rather me hit you? Or burn you?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: Well, it would be more in character
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods:: Okay, I'll remember that in the future. ::she smiles sadly as she slips back under the covers:: Sorry I woke you.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::reaches out to touch her arm:: Are you sure you don't want to talk about it? It might help the nightmares go away
Maeve Owens: MV: ::murmurs:: I'm fine. ::though she doesn't close her eyes to go back to sleep::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::hugs her, not sure what else to say if she isn't wanting to talk about it::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she trembles slightly as she cuddles closer to him::
Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve, you're trembling - it's obviously still upsetting you]
Maeve Owens: MV: ::softly:: I don't even know where to begin.
Quantum Catz: IS: Well, i'm awake now, we've got plenty of time
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sighs heaviliy, and its a while before she answers; softly:: I wasn't fighting back, probably, because I was tied.
Quantum Catz: IS: By who?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::hesitantly:: In the dream?
Quantum Catz: IS: Yeah, in the dream
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she winces:: Well, that gets a little tricky I suppose. It wasn't just one person really but it wasn't a lot people. I guess you could say it was a lot of people all rolled into one being. ::she shrugs, feeling a little unco.
Maeve Owens: mfortable::
Quantum Catz: IS: Could you tell which people?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods, but hesitates to answer further::
Quantum Catz: IS: Then who were they?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::whispers:: Pretty much everyone I went up against in the past. You're lucky the last guy was involved in that group or you might have ended up like Donald. ::she smirks::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::Smiles weakly:: I'm sure you'd've come to your senses before that happened
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she doesn't look to sure about that, and Donald definitely would not have agreed either:: I'm just saying, I'll understand if you want to get your own room.
Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve, they're only nightmares, I think you're over-reacting a bit - you haven't burnt our bed down so far
Maeve Owens: MV: I gave Donald scars so I don't think I'm over reacting. ::she shrugs::
Quantum Catz: IS: Well until you give me scars, i'm not going anywhere - i'd rather be here when you need someone to wake you up than hiding in another room
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she smiles weakly:: You're stubborn too.
Quantum Catz: IS: I must've picked it up from you
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles a little more::
