~Friday, September 18, 1936~

8:55:27 PM Maggie: LA: ::she laid down for a nap just before dinner but before she can even fully relax, she's running into the bathroom as morning sickness strikes her again::

8:58:40 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::he doesn't always follow her when she's sick but this time he does, waiting outside for her::

8:59:41 PM Maggie: LA: ::once she is done brushing her teeth she comes out, looking shaky and sad. She gasps when she sees him standing there; whispers:: You startled me.

9:00:24 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Sorry

9:00:44 PM Maggie: LA: ::smiles weakly:: It's okay. I guess I wasn't paying attention.

9:03:09 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::reaches for her hand, looking sad::

9:04:18 PM Maggie: LA: ::she takes his, squeezing:: You okay?

9:08:27 PM Quantum Catz: EK: He's never...he won't...I always imagined if I had kids he'd be there. ::laughs weakly:: Not that i imagined it often but...

9:09:37 PM Maggie: LA: ::she cringes; softly:: I know.... 

9:12:57 PM Quantum Catz: EK: It just...doesn't seem right...

9:13:51 PM Maggie: LA: ::she nods, and looks away; quietly:: We don't have to get married...I guess. If you don't want to now with....everything that's happened.

9:18:01 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Of course I do, i love you

9:18:57 PM Maggie: LA: ::even more quietly:: Then we'd better do it soon Eli. ::she puts her hands against her stomach as if to stop it from expanding anymore::

9:22:38 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::moves closer and puts his hand over hers:: We will...it's just...hard to think about something like that right now.

9:23:25 PM Maggie: LA: ::she cringes, looking guilty:: I know Eli. And I didn't want to say anything. It's just this is going to be hard to hide soon. ::she bites her lip::

9:26:18 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I know. I'm sorry.  I'm crap at all of this.

9:27:35 PM Maggie: LA: ::she shakes her head:: No. Everything is just happening at the worse time. :: she wipes at the sudden tears pooling in her eyes::

9:36:25 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::moves closer to hug her:: We'll sort something out.  We'll talk to the others.  Maybe it'd be good for us all to have something else to think about

9:37:38 PM Maggie: LA: ::she nods and leans up against him; quietly:: I love you Eli. 

9:44:05 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I love you too. I'm sorry, i always feel like i'm messing up somehow

9:45:03 PM Maggie: LA: We're going to mess up a lot Eli. The only thing that matters is that we stand together, right? Through good times and bad?

9:49:13 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Well, they've been pretty bad lately, i wouldn't mind a few good

9:49:57 PM Maggie: LA: ::she swallows hard then nods; softly:: I know. 

9:51:38 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Come on - we'll talk to the others now if you want

9:53:50 PM Maggie: LA: ::she quickly shakes her head:: No... it might be too soon Eli. 

9:56:26 PM Quantum Catz: EK: It's better than us all just being miserable about Isaac

10:00:20 PM Maggie: LA: ::she hesitates:: If you think it won't just upset them more then we can.

10:04:07 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I don't think they can be much more upset

10:04:34 PM Maggie: LA: ::she nods:: Okay. If you want. 

10:12:24 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::takes her hand and heads back downstairs again::

10:13:03 PM Julie: JH:  ::is trying to do some homework, though he's been unable to focus on much of anything besides training with the fire department, since Isaac died::

10:13:42 PM Maggie: MV: ::she's downstairs with Olivia.::

10:14:22 PM Maggie: DK: ::isn't sure what to do with herself these days either. Most of the time she tries to be elsewhere since no one seems to need her. She's in the kitchen now making a small dinner::

10:17:27 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Hey, guys, there was something we wanted to talk to you about

10:18:39 PM Julie: OL:  ::has had a pretty serious expression on her little face for quite a while--at least, when Maeve does::

10:18:51 PM Julie: JH:  ::looks up from his work, setting his useless pencil down::

10:23:03 PM Maggie: MV: ::tries not to look too depressed around Olivia but this afternoon she isn't quite up to it. She looks up when Eli speaks::

10:23:22 PM Maggie: LA: ::she stands quietly beside him, figuring it'd be best if he said it::

110:25:25 PM Maggie: DK: ::When she hears them talking, she comes out of the kitchen looking worried::

10:28:12 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::moves to sit down, pulling Leyla along with him, not wanting to stand like they're making an announcement:: We figured...maybe it was time to, you know...start planning the wedding....

10:28:54 PM Julie: JH:  ::smiles, though pain crosses his face for a minute before he smiles again, weakly::  Can I help with anything?

10:29:12 PM Maggie: DK: ::doesn't move nor say anything for a few seconds. After that, she follows them in to the living room and sits down:: We can order a cake or I can try making one.

10:30:35 PM Maggie: MV: ::she looks up, stunned, then looks back at Olivia:: A wedding would be good...

10:31:31 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs at Josh:: Thought maybe everyone would want to help.  You know, something to... ::grins at Dolly:: I like your cakes.  There'll need to be some chocolate involved somewhere though, keep Maeve happy

10:32:01 PM Julie: JH:  ::makes a face::  Can you make one layer white all the way, at least?

10:32:42 PM Maggie: MV: ::she barely smiles::

10:33:32 PM Maggie: DK: ::she nods.:: I think I can make a few layers of different flavors maybe.

10:34:16 PM Maggie: LA: ::softly:: It doesn't have to be a big one. I doubt many would come with... ::she points to her features as well as thinking about others things. She shrugs:: Maybe we could do it here?

10:34:58 PM Julie: JH:  ::cringes::  I'm sure a lot of people would come!

10:35:14 PM Maggie: MV: ::softly:: Especially since you helped most of them find relatives. 

10:37:21 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs:: I don't care about a bunch of hangers-on.  Should only be people we care about anyway

10:38:51 PM Maggie: DK: We can make it invitation only.

10:39:15 PM Maggie: MV: It might even be better to have it...somewhere else? ::she glances at the two briefly::

10:39:47 PM Julie: JH:  ::nods::  Or I can play bouncer.  ::smiling weakly::

10:42:05 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Outside somewhere

10:42:49 PM Maggie: LA: Out in the forest?

10:45:34 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Where we met? ::smirks::  It's definitely secluded enough that only the most dedicated will  show

10:46:22 PM Maggie: LA: ::she winces:: No... but there's a field between here and the forest.

10:48:50 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Maybe a better plan

10:49:28 PM Maggie: LA: ::she smiles a little and nods::

10:49:44 PM Maggie: MV: ::looks over again, quietly:: When do you want to hold it?

10:53:54 PM Quantum Catz: EK: We figured it should probably be soon...I guess as soon as everything's sorted

10:54:50 PM Julie: JH:  ::nods; quietly::  Michael's dad owns the printer's; I can see if we can get a discount on invitations.

10:54:56 PM Maggie: MV: ::manages a small smile:: Let us know soon so we can tell people when to be there. 

11:01:49 PM Maggie: LA: I think it'd be better if it were just family.

11:02:05 PM Maggie: MV: ::she just nods, not seeming to be bothered about that:: We don't need invitations then.

11:03:55 PM Julie: JH:  ::nods; looks at Dolly::  You can still keep some of the cake from being chocolate, right?

11:04:21 PM Maggie: DK: ::smiles a little at her brother:: Yes. I can keep some of it from being chocolate.

11:04:55 PM Maggie: MV: You don't need to do all that Dolly. A regular one will be fine unless Eli and Leyla would prefer both.

11:07:19 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs:: It's something to do, isn't it?  Better than sitting around thinking about -- ::stops, not wanting to depress them all again::

11:08:40 PM Maggie: MV: ::she's already depressed so she can't get much lower, though she does wince::

11:08:52 PM Maggie: DK: ::quietly:: I'll make both layers.

11:09:17 PM Julie: JH:  ::softly::  You're...not moving out once you're married, are you?

11:10:06 PM Maggie: LA: ::her eyes widen and she looks from Maeve to Eli::

11:10:38 PM Maggie: MV: ::she bites her lip but doesn't look, already figuring it was up to them. It was their house first after all::

11:12:05 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::glances at Maeve too:: Once we have enough money maybe ::though he doesn't particularly want to leave his family after what's happened::

11:12:28 PM Julie: JH:  ::shudders, looking away, though he can't say anything::

11:12:39 PM Maggie: DK: ::she looks upset to::

11:13:58 PM Maggie: MV: ::she cringes but doesn't really realize they need her input::

11:16:48 PM Julie: JH:  ::softly; finally::  Can you stay?  I want you both here...

11:19:03 PM Maggie: LA: ::softly:: I guess that's up to all of you.

11:24:17 PM Maggie: MV: ::she looks up, hesitantly, and slowly glances around...trying to figure out if they really think they need permission from *her*::

11:25:41 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::meets her eyes; he knows that they've never exactly rubbed each other the right way and he does rather feel like it's more her house than his; there's a bit of a wary look in his eyes::

11:26:48 PM Maggie: MV: ::her eyes widen and then she looks away; quietly:: Despite the fact that you leaving would be the last thing Isaac would ever want, this house belongs as much to you three as it does to me... maybe even more so. 

11:30:42 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs:: You're his wife, Maeve. The house is yours

11:31:36 PM Maggie: MV: ::she shakes her head:: If Isaac had written a will... he'd have left it to all of us despite anything.

11:33:26 PM Julie: JH:  ::softly::  It doesn't matter...Maeve cares about all of us too.

11:35:03 PM Quantum Catz: EK: We're meant to grow up and move out eventually anyway, that's the way it works.  Just...maybe not just yet...

11:35:54 PM Maggie: MV: ::she nods:: 

11:36:30 PM Maggie: DK: ;:softly:: We'd all like to spend time with the three of you before you left Eli.

11:36:53 PM Julie: JH:  ::nods; softly::  And even when you go...don't go far...

11:37:43 PM Maggie: LA: We won't. ::quickly glances at Eli after she says that::

11:39:50 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::laughs, twirling a strand of Leyla's hair in his fingers:: You won't get rid of me that easily.  Besides, last i checked you two make great babysitters

11:40:45 PM Maggie: MV: ::barely smiles again and presses Olivia a little closer to her::

11:41:16 PM Julie: JH:  ::smiles quite a bit at that; if he were a year younger, he probably would've gone over to hug Eli::

11:41:53 PM Maggie: DK: ::she gasps and jumps up:: I forgot about dinner.. ::she runs in to the kitchen::

11:45:11 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::chuckles, feeling for a moment like everything might okay again one day::

11:45:38 PM Maggie: LA: ::she smiles a little to hear him laugh::

11:45:52 PM Julie: OL:  ::looks up at Maeve with her solemn eyes::

11:46:17 PM Maggie: MV: ::attempts a small smile for Livvy and tries to tickle her chin::

11:47:34 PM Julie: OL:  ::does smile at being touched::

11:48:43 PM Maggie: MV: ::smiles a little more, though she still looks sad, and gently rubs the baby's cheek::

11:48:59 PM Julie: OL:  ::reaches out for Maeve's hair::

11:49:29 PM Maggie: MV: ::she bites her lip to keep from crying then reaches for a strand to dangle in front of her::

11:50:39 PM Julie: OL:  ::keeps her eyes on Maeve's hair, fascinated; reaches again, missing::

11:51:36 PM Maggie: MV: ::she gets distracted and forgets to move her hair around as she studies Livvy's features, looking for some sign of Isaac::

11:57:35 PM Julie: :  ::Olivia's serious face is a bit like Isaac's, especially her eyes::

11:58:28 PM Maggie: MV: ::she smiles a little, thinking she'd have to be more like Isaac to be so well behaved. She moves her hair again::

11:59:56 PM Julie: :  ::the baby reaches out again, missing::

12:01:30 AM Maggie: MV: ::her smile fades and she reaches out to run her fingers lightly over Olivia's small patch of red hair at the top of her head; softly:: Sorry kid. Looks like you got stuck with my hair. 

12:02:07 AM Julie: OL:  ::smiles at Maeve's touch, reaching out awkwardly for her mother's arm::

12:02:59 AM Maggie: MV: ::she stills, letting Olivia's little fingers rest on her arm::

12:03:27 AM Julie: OL:  ::looks up at Maeve, letting out a little laugh::

12:06:21 AM Quantum Catz: EK: ::is watching Maeve with Livvy, a little sadly, thinking of everything Isaac's going to miss; leans his head against Leyla's::

12:06:33 AM Maggie: MV: ::she swallows back some more tears and lets a more genuine but small smile appear:: 

12:07:31 AM Maggie: LA: ::she looks a bit sad herself, though she was mostly worried about how Maeve is coping. She squeezes Eli's hand then leans her head against his::

12:07:58 AM Julie: JH:  ::has turned to his homework, though he's staring blankly at it, and spends more of his time looking up at Maeve and Livvy::

12:08:26 AM Julie: OL:  ::tries to reach towards Maeve's face, though her arm is far too short::

12:09:04 AM Maggie: MV: ::she brings her closer to accommodate her, cuddling her close::

12:09:42 AM Julie: OL:  ::touches Maeve's nose, then the tears on her cheeks, looking a little startled at the feel::

12:10:46 AM Maggie: MV: ::she kisses her forehead then places Olivia on her shoulder. She finally seems to realize she's being watched, and looks up::

12:11:14 AM Julie: JH:  ::quickly turns back to his homework, though he still doesn't actually do any of it::

12:12:12 AM Quantum Catz: EK: ::murmurs softly to Leyla:: If I ever threaten to go off on my own, you have my permission to lock me up

12:12:38 AM Maggie: LA: ::she frowns up at him:: If you even think about it I'll do worse.

12:12:50 AM Maggie: MV: ::she cringes and looks away::

12:13:22 AM Julie: JH:  ::breaks the point of his pencil; has to get up to get a sharpener::

12:14:01 AM Maggie: DK: ::she comes back in; softly:: Dinner was rescued if anyone is hungry. 

12:15:38 AM Quantum Catz: EK: ::kisses Leyla's temple and stands up:: I could eat

12:15:49 AM Maggie: LA: ::she smiles and gets up::

12:16:07 AM Julie: JH:  ::is glad enough to get away from his homework::

12:16:39 AM Maggie: MV: Thanks Dolly but I think I'll pass... ::she stays in the chair with Olivia::

12:18:03 AM Julie: OL:  ::starts to fuss a bit::

12:18:13 AM Quantum Catz: EK: You should eat, Maeve.  

12:18:49 AM Maggie: MV: ::she gently bounces the baby then looks up at Eli:: Um, I...maybe later.

12:19:09 AM Maggie: DK: I can save you some. ::she returns to the kitchen::

12:20:05 AM Quantum Catz: EK: ::mutters:: I'll make sure you do

12:22:15 AM Julie: OL:  ::continues to fuss::

12:22:43 AM Maggie: MV: ::she gets up:: Besides, Livvy needs to eat now and I can't do both. 

12:35:53 AM Quantum Catz: EK: ::just shakes his head and goes through to sit down::

12:36:20 AM Maggie: MV: ::takes Livvy upstairs to feed her and likely nap with her afterwards::

12:36:36 AM Maggie: LA: ::worriedly goes in to sit with Eli::
