9:27:59 PM Maeve: MV: ::she's rocking Livvy up in her nursery, watching the baby anxiously:: 

9:34:49 PM Julie: :  ::Livvy has been slowly losing weight, and she's rather restless.  She hasn't been very alert lately, either, and is sleeping too much::

9:35:58 PM Maeve: MV: ::a tear forms in her eye and slowly moves down her cheek. She's tried everything but no matter how far she gets from Leyla, Livvy remains the same. She slowly gets up to put the sleeping child back in to her crib::

9:37:17 PM Julie: OL:  ::slowly opens her eyes, looking up at her mother::

9:38:05 PM quantumcatz: : ::Kizzie has been trying to work out what plant was used to poison Leyla; she tried to find a trace of it at the apartment, to feel for it in leyla's blood, and is now going to different trees, hoping the man gave something away In sight of something she could communicate with.  But she hasn't found anything::

9:38:48 PM Maeve: MV: ::she smiles sadly and gently caresses her cheek; whispers:: Don't worry little one, I'm not about to lose you too. ::her eyes stray to her husband's picture. If he were here they'd be celebrating their anniversary. Livvy wouldn't be dying.::

9:45:47 PM Maeve: MV: ::she moves towards the mirror, wiping her cheeks. She takes a deep breath and then calls for Josh::

9:46:39 PM Julie: JH:  ::has recovered from being strangled, though he hasn't been sleeping well; slips into the bedroom::

9:47:14 PM Maeve: MV: ::she forces a smile:: I think I'm going to step out for a while. Could you watch Livvy?

99:47:46 PM Julie: JH:  ::looks a bit worried::  Why?

9:48:01 PM Maeve: MV: ::blinks:: I don't want her to be alone..

9:51:08 PM Julie: JH:  ::shakes his head::  No; why are you stepping out?

9:51:58 PM Maeve: MV: I just...need to get out. You know? Maybe see Libby for a while. ::she picks up a small picture of her and Isaac, looks at it, then puts it back down::

9:52:46 PM Julie: JH:  ::sighs, looking down Olivia; softly::  Let me get my schoolbooks and I'll watch her.

9:53:05 PM Maeve: MV: ::she nods::

9:55:16 PM Julie: JH:  ::comes back in a couple minutes, sitting down beside Olivia's crib; softly::  I'll see you when you get back.

9:55:55 PM Maeve: MV: ::trying to hide her guilt she turns towards the door:: Sure. ::she hurries out, her legs shaking. But when she gets outside she turns towards Guy's and not Libby's.::

9:58:10 PM Julie: GU:  ::is at the house he shares with Kizzie, doing some paperwork::

9:58:59 PM Maeve: MV: ::she knocks on the door::

10:00:53 PM Julie: GU:  ::opens the door::  Maeve?

10:01:28 PM Maeve: MV: ::quietly:: I need you to do something for me. I need you to try to find that man again. ::she holds out the mangled knife to him:: 

10:03:26 PM Julie: GU:  ::takes the melted thing, frowning::  There's no poison left on it?

10:03:50 PM Maeve: MV: ::she cringes:: I didn't know it was poisoned to begin with... I melted it off before we found Leyla. 

10:04:14 PM Julie: GU:  ::frowns::  Fine.  ::sits down, closing his eyes::

10:04:50 PM Maeve: MV: ::she comes in and closes the door::

10:14:13 PM Julie: GU:  ::slowly opens his eyes; quietly::  Hollowburgh.  On the outskirts, in the forest.

10:14:53 PM Maeve: MV: ::she looks a little surprised then relieved:: Thanks Guy. I'll... go...tell someone. ::heads for the door::

10:15:23 PM Julie: GU:  Wait!  You can't go alone.

10:15:57 PM Maeve: MV: ::she turns back, smirking:: And why not? I'm not looking to get anyone else killed by this man Guy. So yes. I am.

10:16:36 PM Julie: GU:  ::glares at Maeve::  Don't be stupid.  You should leave this to the professionals.  Or me.

10:17:27 PM Maeve: MV: ::she narrows her eyes at him:: Excuse me? The professionals? Last time I checked I was better at taking out bad guys than half the guards in this place. ::she glances around looking for rope::

10:21:25 PM Julie: GU:  Fair enough, but you have too much at risk.

10:22:39 PM Maeve: MV: I know! Which is *why* I am going. I am not letting Livvy die on me! ::she moves quick, grabbing his handcuffs and in one fluid movement tries to lock him to his desk drawer:: 

10:23:30 PM Julie: GU:  ::his eyes go wide::  Maeve!  ::tries to pull himself loose::

10:24:21 PM Maeve: MV: ::she pushes on his shoulder to make him sit:: I just need a head start. He isn't going to get away with this. So try to... not make too much of a fuss, okay? 

10:25:07 PM Julie: GU:  Kizzie and I could handle it!

10:25:30 PM Maeve: MV: ::she reaches down and plucks the keys to the cuffs from his belt:: Just to make sure. ::she tosses them in a corner:: And I'm not willing to take the chance. 

10:26:04 PM Julie: GU:  ::curses softly at Maeve::  You're mad!

10:26:54 PM Maeve: MV: ::she shrugs:: Maybe. But what does it matter? ::her eyes are sad when she looks back at him, full of grief and pain:: See you soon Guy. ::she heads for the door::

10:27:11 PM Julie: GU:  ::yells after her::  Maeve!

10:27:36 PM Maeve: MV: ::ignores him and softly closes the door behind her::
