~Wednesday, August 21, 1935~

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::has the last watch; it's about dawn, and he's debating whether to wake the others, or give them a few minutes; he figures Eli is probably exhausted from trotting all yesterday::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::fell asleep pretty quickly and is curled up asleep as a fox, so he'll hear and wake up if something happens::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::her eyes pop open, and she sits up, uneasily. She takes a calming breath, hoping the queasiness will pass.::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::glances over at Maeve; softly::  Good morning.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she gulps:: Good Mor- ::she clamps her mouth closed, her eyes widening a little more. She feels the color drain from her face as she scrambles to her feet, trying to put some distance between her and the campers::

yarnkittymon: HR:  You all...::stops himself when he realizes what Maeve is running off to do::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::the noise brings her out of her sleep, and she yawns as she stretches out; quietly:: Good morning.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::has turned his face away from Maeve, glancing back at Stephanie::  Sleep well?

Quantum Catz: EK: ::twitches an ear and opens his eyes, sniffing the air and looking over towards Maeve::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she is out of sight though his fox ears might pick up on her losing what's still left of what they had to eat last night::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::looks a little concerned as she gets to her feet:: Yes, I slept pretty well. ::glances to where Maeve should be then back to Harry::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::sighs::  Guess supper didn't agree with her.

MaeveOwens: SV: ::her eyes widen, and she winces:: Oh.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she returns a few minutes later, refusing to look any of them eye; quietly:: So, we heading out?

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::softly::  You sure you're all right, Maeve?

MaeveOwens: MV: ::quickly nods:: Yeah. Must have been something I ate.

Quantum Catz: EK: ::snorts rather disbelievingly; sniffs the air again, tilting his head, then shakes his head and stands up, stretching::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::glares at Eli for a moment then looks away::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::quietly::  There's no shame in going back.

MaeveOwens: MV: I'm fine Harry! It's probably just a bug! It's already passed,

MaeveOwens: SV: We don't have time to go back. She can stay in Gatetown while we take care of the rest if she isn't up to coming.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she glares at Stephanie::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::finally nods::  All right.  ::looks down at the fox::  Eli?

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she bites her tongue, figuring she can argue with them later::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she glares at Stephanie::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::finally nods::  All right.  ::looks down at the fox::  Eli?

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she bites her tongue, figuring she can argue with them later::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::turns into a human:: Gimme a few minutes being normal then i'll be good to go ::threads his fingers together and stretches his arms out in front of him::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::reaches into his pack and gets out a bit of their meager rations, distributing them while they wait::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks at Maeve while he eats, frowning a bit but not saying anything::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she avoids the food and busies herself with saddling the horse::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::frowns at Maeve too, but can't really do anything; he just packs up their modest camp once he's eaten his few bites of breakfast::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::eats hers and does what she can to help them get ready::

MaeveOwens: EK: ::sighs:: Right, let's go ::changes into his horse form, with one last glance at Maeve::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::reaches out to help Maeve up::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she frowns at him, and swats at his hands:: I'm not helpless Harry. ::it's not graceful but she manages to get on the horse.::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::frowns, then glances at Stephanie, motioning to the other saddle::  Should I even try?

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she laughs at him as she saunters by. She gives him a sassy grin as she easily swings herself into the saddle. She holds out her hand:: Would *you* like some help?

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::smirks, accepting the hand::  Only so *one* of us can feel useful.

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she laughs as she pulls him up onto the horse::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::not even an hour later Maeve starts looking a little pale again. Shortly after she's pulling on the reigns to stop the horse, and making a beeline for the trees::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::frowns, almost pulling on the show-reins they have for Eli::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::snorts and stamps one of his hooves, not looking happy::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she frowns:: Are you sure she's okay?

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::shakes his head, shrugging::  I really don't know...

Quantum Catz: EK: ::stamps a hoof again, impatiently::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::with what little dignity she has left, she gets up and slowly returns to the horse. She has a little more difficulty getting up this time. Without a word, she sets the horse moving::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::follows after her::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::sighs, but doesn't speak::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::looks concerned but if no one is going to say anything she isn't either.::

yarnkittymon: :  ::they've been going for about two hours when they see a few guards in the road ahead, standing by to stop them::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she slows her horse down, and glances over at Harry; quietly:: Should we try to go around?

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guards have already seen them, and cry out::  Halt!  This road is restricted!

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she frowns:: Why is it restricted?

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guards pause for a moment, but the lead one says::  Quarantine up ahead.

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she eyes them, not sure she should believe that:: I was here a few days ago. There was no quarantine.

yarnkittymon: :  Terrible influenza, miss.  I suggest you stay as far away as you can; it'll probably spread regardless.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::whispers:: Let's just turn around.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::frowns, but pats Eli's neck, nodding::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::urges her horse to turn around::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::follows::

yarnkittymon: :  ::when they're out of sight of the guards, Harry murmurs::  I think they're lying.  We just need a plan.

MaeveOwens: MV: Is there another way around?

yarnkittymon: HR:  Through the forest, or we can go back about ten miles and take the long way.

MaeveOwens: SV: We can sneak through the forest. It's quicker.

yarnkittymon: HR:  Can the horses...or horse...make it?

MaeveOwens: SV: It'll be tough for a horse but one can technically go through it. Though, we'd be safer walking since on a horse you'd likely get smacked in the head by lower branches.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::slips off of Eli's back::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::carefully climbs off her horse, fighting nausea again.::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::once he's free to change, he goes back to being a human::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::pats Maeve's horse's neck; quietly::  Let's get going, then, and hope for the best.

Quantum Catz: EK: Do you really think it's a good idea for you to go, Maeve? If the quarantine's real...

MaeveOwens: MV: ::mutters:: Well, I'm already sick. Maybe I'll be immune.

Quantum Catz: EK: Or you'll get worse ::rolls his eyes and looks away, annoyed::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::quietly::  I'm sure *you'll* be fine...

MaeveOwens: SV: And I'm sure they were lying so the only thing we have to worry about is them having guards at the end of this so called path.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::smirks at Eli::  Sure you don't want to just go back and scare them off?

MaeveOwens: SV: Then we might be in more trouble. I thought that was why we skipped the dragon idea?

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::glances at Stephanie::  How do we sneak by, then?

Quantum Catz: EK: ::stifles a yawn:: We'd have to hide the horse to sneak anywhere

MaeveOwens: SV: I guess if there are guard at the end of *this* path then we'll have no other choice but to scare them off.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::glances at Eli; quietly::  Can you change into something to scare them off?

Quantum Catz: EK: Even a normal dog can frighten some people, you'd be amazed how scary animals can be when they try

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::smirks::  Runaway horse, then?

Quantum Catz: EK: They might try to shoot a horse, especially if they're suspicious - a bird might work best

MaeveOwens: MV: ::smirks:: Like they wouldn't shoot a bird. *I've* been tempted to fry you before.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::quietly::  I'd suggest something more dangerous.

MaeveOwens: SV: Maybe we should try to trap them instead. That way they can't run back and report us.

Quantum Catz: EK: But i can avoid being shot as a bird

Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks at harry:: And have you ever been attacked by a big bird of prey? I wouldn't recommend it

MaeveOwens: MV: ::mutters:: The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Quantum Catz: EK: You're the one with the big ego, who thinks they can tackle the world

yarnkittymon: HR:  Come on; we don't have time.  Eli, change into a basilisk or something and catch them.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she glares at Eli, barely restraining the juvenile response of sticking her tongue out at him::

MaeveOwens: SV: Uh, we're not even sure if there's guards ahead. Though, Eli could change into a bird and scout it out for us I suppose.

Quantum Catz: EK: A basilisk is too difficult anyway, nobody's running off with my blood to unfreeze them if it goes wrong

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::frowns::  Fine.  I'm going on.  ::hurries forward::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::giving up, she shakes her head and silently follows::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::sighs::

yarnkittymon: :  ::they spy one of the guards who had been on the main path; he sees them, and starts running::  I said, get back!

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she freezes in mid-step, startled. She glances at Eli; smirking:: Okay, Mr-I-think-I-can-take-down-anything. Here's your chance.

Quantum Catz: EK: ::glares at her and then changes into a falcon and flies towards the man::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the man stares at Eli, blinking in astonishment::  What the devil?  ::draws his sword::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::glances at the other two:: Are we letting him do all the work? ::despite her uneasiness, she runs forward with a fireball in hand:: Drop the sword!

Quantum Catz: EK: ::flies past the man and then swoops towards his back, changing into a dog as he goes, planning to knock the man to the ground before he can do anything with the sword::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the man swings madly at the dog Eli, spinning around, though he's somewhat off-balance::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::runs forward, drawing his long dagger::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::his weight knocks the man to the grown, though since he turned, his sword arm is still at least partly free::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the man raises his sword arm, trying to cut Eli with the end nearest to the hilt::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::snaps forward to bite the man's arm::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard yells::  Call off your dog!

MaeveOwens: MV: ::snaps:: Drop your sword!

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard tries to cut Eli again, though his arm is bleeding::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::Grips the man's arm hard in his mouth and doesn't let go this time::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard grips his sword tightly and hits Eli in the head with the hlit::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::yelps slightly at the pain and then turns into a human and grabs the man's injured arm with both his hands, trying to force it down and make him drop the sword:: Do you really want to be hurt any more?

MaeveOwens: MV: ::stands there, frowning, and still holding a fireball in hopes that she'll get the chance to use it::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard yells::  I don't wnat to hurt you!  ::tries to kick Eli, though the young man knocks the sword out of his hand::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::quickly goes for the sword, not wanting him to grab it again::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::runs forward, putting his knife at the guard's throat::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard yells, still trying to get rid of Eli::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::holds onto the man's arm, pressing down where he feels the teethmarks::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::smirks:: Now why don't you ask him about the quarantine.

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard grimaces::  Why do you think I'm keeping you from coming in?

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she shrugs:: We weren't sure if you were lying or not. And I'm still not completely convinced. ::she glances at Harry::

MaeveOwens: MV: Are we sure he's a guard? Maybe you should ask for proof.

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard cringes at the pain::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::smirks::  Someone check his jacket; he should have a badge.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::sticks the sword in the dirt a good distance away before she reaches down to go through his pockets::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the pockets are empty::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she shakes her head:: There's no ID.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::turns back to the so-called guard::  Care to tell us the truth?

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard shakes his head silently::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::softly, looking at the guard:: If i sever the right nerves, you'll never lift a sword again. Telling the truth might be better for your future

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard tries to smirk, though Eli can see the fear in his eyes::  You wouldn't know how.

Quantum Catz: EK: I'll just tear them all, i'm pretty sure it'll do the job

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard grimaces; quietly::  We know you're heading to Gate Town, and I'm trying to stop you.

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she rummages around in their pack, looking for rope:: We could tie him up? His buddies will probably come looking for him but by then we should have a pretty good head start.

yarnkittymon: HR:  No interest in why they're stopping us, or should we just get going?  ::there's some rope in the pack::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::her eyes widen:: I just figured it was because of...well you know. You can ask him if you want. ::she pulls out the rope::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::quietly::  Who are you working for?

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard just shakes his head::

MaeveOwens: MV: Really? Are you going to make us threaten you all over again? :she sighs, and shakes her head::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::loses his temper, and punches the guard::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard doesn't reply::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::a ball of flame appears in her hand:: How about before Eli destroys all your tendons I charcoal them?

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard cringes, murmuring::  Go ahead.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she shrugs, and nods her head. She starts flicking little embers at him which grow hotter and hotter:: Let me know when you decide to start talking.

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard whimpers, but doesn't speak::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::keeping her little embers controlled to where they can't hit anyone but him, she keeps going:: You know I can sit here all day. ::she glances up at Eli:: Or you know you could chew on a leg if you like.

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard says, quietly::  Go ahead.

Quantum Catz: EK: Is your boss really worth this?

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard nods::

Quantum Catz: EK: Why?

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard stays silent::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she glances up at Harry:: We're wasting time. Unless you want me to fry him, I think we'd better do as Stephanie suggested.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::nods, glancing at Eli; softly::  Must be someone important to him.

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she comes by with the rope, and tries to tie him up::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the guard struggles slightly, but they're able to get him tied::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::moves off of the man and looks down at his blood covered hands. Silently, he crouches down and wipes his hands on the grass:: You might wanna do something for his arm as well

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::gets out a bandage and ties it around the wound::  His friends will find him soon enough.  Let's get going.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she picks up the sword again as they leave:: Might as well not leave it behind for them to use on us again.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::glances at Stephanie::  You want it?

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she grins:: Sure. ::she takes it from Maeve then looks back at Harry:: Want to steal his sword belt for me too?

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::smirks::  He's not an awful-looking fella; think you might have wanted to.  ::but he goes and undoes the belt, then hands it over to Stephanie::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she takes it from him; murmurs:: I prefer the tall, dark and handsome ones. ::she glances at his dark hair, smiling slightly, before she turns and walks away::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::can't restrain a smile, though he figures it's already over between the two of them; turns back to Eli::  You all right, kid?

Quantum Catz: EK: ::belatedly realising that there's probably blood on his lips, he wipes it with the back of his hand; softly:: As always

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::pats Eli's back; quietly::  Good job.  Now let's get going.

yarnkittymon: :  ::they stick to the forest and make it to Gate Town late that second evening::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::has been fairly quiet the rest of the way, occasionally flying above them as a bird rather than talk to them, though he always keeps his eye on Maeve::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::quietly::  It's too late to do anything tonight; we'll need to rest.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she yawns:: Good enough for me. ::she's barely restraining herself from snapping at Eli for watching her like she's just going to walk into a trap of some kind::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she looks anxious:: I'd rather get this over with tonight. Unfortunately, I don't know where any of the council lives. And we won't find out without raising questions I'd rather avoid. ::she sighs::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::frowns::  To the tavern, then.  ::smirks at Eli::  Just one beer for you, though.

Quantum Catz: EK: ::smiles humourlessly:: Funny

yarnkittymon: :  ::the nearest tavern looks fairly clean, though Harry doesn't like the look of the people inside::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she's too tired to care much less notice::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she looks around, one hand on her sword. She glances up at Harry:: Isn't there another one further down the road?

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::nods::  Pretty filthy, though.

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she grimaces:: Really? I've never been in that one. This one looks like it's getting worse.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::shrugs::  I guess Eli could turn into a bat and eat the bugs in our room.

Quantum Catz: EK: Yeah, cos i just love eating bugs

MaeveOwens: SV: He'd have to keep at it all night and even then I wouldn't be able to get to sleep. ::she points towards the front desk where Maeve is already headed:: I think she'd rather take her chances here too.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::smirks::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the tavern is pretty nice, as far as taverns go, since it actually has a front desk; the smiling hostess says there's just one room open, and gives them the only key::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the people inside at the bar, however, are loud and raucous::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she quickly takes the key; tiredly:: Thanks. ::she grimaces at the loud drunks before she tries to squeeze around them all to get to the stairs::

yarnkittymon: :  ::one of the drunks pinches Maeve, grinning::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she yelps in surprise then turns around, glaring at him. She tries to burn the hand that pinched her:: Hey, I'm not part of the entertainment, pal.

yarnkittymon: :  ::the drunk yells, and his friend laughs::  You got a firey one, Ned!

Quantum Catz: EK: ::snarls under his breath at the man, looking at him like he's in the mood for biting someone else::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she rolls her eyes and tries to move on past:: Forget em Eli. They aren't worth keeping us from rest.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::glares at the man, pushing him aside roughly, though the man turns his attention to Stephanie instead, grinning at her::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she smirks at him; gruffly:: Don't even try it.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::looks coldly at the drunk; in a low voice::  You'd better not.

yarnkittymon: :  ::the drunk leans next to Stephanie, putting an arm around her::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::before Stephanie can respond, Harry throws a punch at the man::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she glares at Harry:: I could have handled it!

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she rolls her eyes:: Really people. I'm tired!

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::can't keep a tiny blush out of his cheeks; murmurs::  Sorry.  ::turns away, and heads for the stairs::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::can't help but smirk at bit at Harry's impulsive response, even though he had to restrain himself from doing the same thing::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the first drunk helps his friend up, but doesn't move to retaliate::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::once Harry's back is turned she lets herself smile just a little. At least he, maybe, it proves he still cares for her::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she smirks, throws a little spark at the two drunks in hope they'll have to buy some new clothes before she hurries after the others::

yarnkittymon: :  ::one of the burns goes out right away, but the drunker man's clothes catch on fire; he starts running around and yelling until he's doused with water; a few people get together and surround Maeve and the others::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks over at Maeve:: I thought you were tired? What'd you have to go do that for?

MaeveOwens: MV: ::laughs nervously:: I'm impulsive. What did you expect?

yarnkittymon: :  ::the barkeep comes around, growling::  You trying to make trouble?

MaeveOwens: MV: ::mutters:: They started it.

yarnkittymon: :  They didn't set *you* on fire, missy!

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she smirks:: Well, at least I sobered them up. You should be thanking me.

yarnkittymon: :  ::the barkeep snarls::  Get out, all of you.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she shrugs, and moves towards the stairs:: Well, we were planning to.

yarnkittymon: :  ::the barkeep shakes his head::  Out *side*.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she turns back around, glaring. She holds up the key:: We already paid for a room!

yarnkittymon: :  ::the woman from the front desk comes out to the bar, murmuring::  Murray?

yarnkittymon: :  ::the barkeep glares::  These two tried to burn the place down!

yarnkittymon: :  ::the woman goes pale, and shakes her head::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she frowns at the woman, but as long as he's distracted she figures it's a good time to sneak up the stairs. She tries to push everyone in that direction before he notices::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the woman looks past Murray and calls out::  Please, we're going to have to ask you to leave!

Quantum Catz: EK: ::smirks:: Looks like you're missing out on a bed, tonight, Maeve

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she glares at Eli before turning back to face them:: But we're tired! Are you really going to make us walk- ::her eyes widen, and she looks around, paling again. She'd been fine all afternoon. She takes a deep breath but finally has to bolt to where she assumes the nearest restroom is::

yarnkittymon: :  ::both Murray and the woman run after Maeve, afraid she'll burn something else::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she isn't going fast, afraid much movement won't let her make it in time::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the woman says::  I'm sorry, but after that tavern in Marquis burned, we *have* to be careful.  You understand?

Quantum Catz: EK: ::blocks their way:: She's not well, okay? We won't cause any more trouble. But she needs somewhere to sleep

MaeveOwens: MV: ::the thought of that makes her even sicker but with Eli blocking the way she easily slips into the restroom::

yarnkittymon: :  ::the woman frowns::  Then she can go another few steps to another tavern!

MaeveOwens: SV: Then we want our money back.

yarnkittymon: :  ::the woman nods, going back to get the money::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she comes back out a few minutes later, looking pale and shaky::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks over at her:: You okay?

MaeveOwens: MV: ::slowly nods::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::takes the money, looking back at Maeve::  You going to make it?

Quantum Catz: EK: You should've stayed home

MaeveOwens: MV: :she glares at them:: I'm fine.

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::sighs::  There's some other nice taverns around, I'm sure.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she just nods, too tired to fight over it anymore.::

yarnkittymon: :  ::Harry avoids the next tavern and finds a place close to the Gate; it's nicer than the one they were thrown out of, though it costs a bit more; Harry pays without complaining::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she's looking even more tired by the time they get here which is unusual for her anyway.::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::softly, looking at Maeve:: Maeve, seriously, if you really aren't well...i can take you back to Isaac

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::nods; quietly::  You shouldn't be here, Maeve.

MaeveOwens: MV: ::her eyes spark back to life long enough to snap at them:: If the two of you don't cut it out I'll find a way to fry up both of you! ::she glances at Eli:: you have to sleep some time!

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::makes a face::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::makes a face back at him before she pushes past to go to their room.::

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::curls up on the floor; quietly::  You ladies share the bed.

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she doesn't look too thrilled considering Maeve's current state but she does so without argument::

MaeveOwens: MV: ::she doesn't argue either and luckily enough is practically asleep before her head hits the pillow::

Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks rather frustrated and sits for a long time just clenching and unclenching his fists::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she hasn't closed her eyes yet and watches Eli worriedly for a few minutes; quietly:: You okay, Eli?

Quantum Catz: EK: ::mutters:: She's just as bad as-- ::stops and sighs:: I just wish Maeve'd listen to reason sometimes

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she looks intrigued:: She's just as bad as who?

Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks away:: It doesn't matter

MaeveOwens: SV: Awe, come on. You can't leave me in suspense!

yarnkittymon: HR:  ::has his back turned to them, but is listening::

Quantum Catz: EK: Just someone I know ::though he's blushing a bit and tries to hide it by looking down at his hands::

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she grins:: This wouldn't be the reason you were out so early in the morning...?

Quantum Catz: EK: ::lies down on the floor and turns his back to Stephanie:: Aren't we meant to be sleeping?

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she shrugs:: I guess it would be wise. Though I'd like to hear more about this girl. At least you can sympathize with your brother... ::she cant help but chuckle::

Quantum Catz: EK: Haha. She's not that much like Maeve - she's just stubborn

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she smirks:: I'd say the same thing about you.

Quantum Catz: EK: Yeah, well, I'm just trying to keep her safe

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she smiles:: And that's probably a good way to make her even more stubborn.

Quantum Catz: EK: ::Snaps:: Yeah, well, i'm stupid, then, but it's what i'm going to do ::mutters:: I'm going to sleep now

MaeveOwens: SV: ::she smile quickly fades; softly:: Sorry Eli, I didn't mean to imply that but I'm sure your brother will appreciate it even if Maeve doesn't understand it.

Quantum Catz: EK: No, i'm sorry...i just.... ::sighs:: G'night...

MaeveOwens: SV: ::smiles slightly; softly:: Good night.
