4:03:41 PM Julie: : ::Libby and Maeve are in a small room in a small house--the royal guard has brought them in for questioning::
4:05:48 PM Maeve: MV: ::she smirks but refuses to say a word::
4:07:04 PM Julie: LB: ::she's doing her best to act innocent as well::
4:07:32 PM Julie: : ::the tallest guard smirks:: You've seen the kids. Where are they?
4:08:41 PM Maeve: MV: I don't remember saying that I did see them.
4:09:43 PM Julie: : ::the guard narrows his eyes:: It's 68 degrees in here. You've seen them.
4:10:25 PM Maeve: MV: ::she glares back:: What does that have to do with anything?
4:10:51 PM Julie: : ::the guard smirks:: You're not shivering.
4:12:11 PM Maeve: MV: :::coldly:: It's kind of hard to do so when tied to a chair, don't you think?
4:15:11 PM Maeve: ::another guard is quietly pacing the space behind the two women::
4:15:30 PM Julie: LB: ::glares at the guard:: As I recall, we have a right to a trial.
4:16:21 PM Maeve: ::the guard smirks:: Are you in need of one then? Cause if you're innocent then you wouldn't would you?
4:17:59 PM Julie: LB: Trials can prove people innocent.
4:18:22 PM Maeve: MV: ::smirks:: Or innocent people guilty.
4:18:42 PM Julie: : ::the other guard steps behind Maeve, and they hear a slight mechanical noise and a bit of a snap::
4:19:25 PM Maeve: ::he leans closer to Libby:: If you'd just tell us the truth this interrogation would be over. Now, I know *you* didn't take them out of here but I think you know who did.
4:19:53 PM Julie: LB: ::narrows her eyes:: And I know this is illegal.
4:19:57 PM Maeve: MV: ::she frowns and looks over her shoulder, not sure what the noise was::
4:20:24 PM Julie: : ::the guard smiles at Maeve, holding a lighter, its flame bright::
4:21:06 PM Maeve: : ::he shrugs:: Smuggling out two kids is illegal as well. And if we don't get them back, well, lets just say your friend over there could be facing the gallows again.
4:21:56 PM Julie: LB: And she's done nothing wrong.
4:22:05 PM Maeve: MV; ::she lifts her chin, refusing to show him any kind of fear. Despite her wishes, she still goes pale::
4:22:54 PM Julie: : ::the guard glances at Maeve, then watches the flame::
4:22:55 PM Maeve: : ::There's a judge and jury that says differently and unless her powers are gone, which I'm betting they aren't, she has nowhere to go but back to the gallows. Unless we find those kids.
4:23:33 PM Julie: LB: There's no point in talking if you won't listen to reason.
4:23:40 PM Maeve: MV: ::she keeps her eyes on him, glaring::
4:23:56 PM Julie: : ::the man moves closer to Maeve, holding the lighter out of her sight::
4:24:12 PM Maeve: : :Reason says you know where those kids are.
4:24:52 PM Maeve: MV: ::she gasps and begins fidgeting.:: Are you crazy!
4:25:00 PM Julie: LB: ::stays silent::
4:25:20 PM Julie: : ::the man laughs:: If you're telling the truth, your husband can heal you; no harm done.
4:25:55 PM Maeve: MV: Even so I don't think it's legal for you to go around burning people! ::she bites her lip, and keeps moving, hoping it'll satisfy him one way or another::
4:27:41 PM Julie: : ::chuckles:: Does it hurt?
4:28:27 PM Maeve: MV: ::she looks up at Libby, desperately. She tries scooting away from him::
4:29:15 PM Julie: LB: ::winces:: This IS illegal!
4:29:39 PM Julie: : ::the man grins:: I don't hear screaming.
4:30:15 PM Maeve: MV: ::she looks back over her shoulder:: How do you know I'm a screamer? You're just insane!
4:31:31 PM Maeve: : ;:the other guard straightens up and begins to pace again:: Whether or not it is illegal doesn't matter. We want the kids. You tell us where they are and we'll let you go.
4:33:46 PM Julie: LB: And I told you, I don't know!
4:34:02 PM Julie: : ::the guard coldly says:: Does it hurt, Maeve?
4:34:24 PM Maeve: : :Then tell us who took them? We know Beth Swanson didn't mastermind this on her own. She had help.
4:34:55 PM Julie: LB: I don't know!
4:35:13 PM Maeve: MV: It would if you actually would have touched me with it! ::she looks over at the other guard:: Will you call your sick pal off of me!
4:36:23 PM Julie: : ::the guard with the lighter looks a little surprised::
4:37:50 PM Maeve: MV: ::she gives him a sarcastic smile::
4:38:24 PM Maeve: : ::He looks up, smirking:: Just burn her arm. She can't act away a burn mark!
4:39:19 PM Julie: : ::the guard frowns; he really doesn't want to do this::
4:39:45 PM Maeve: : ::he rolls his eyes and stalks over:: Give me the lighter.
4:40:08 PM Maeve: MV: ::her eyes widen:: Hey! You can't do this! It isn't even ethical!
4:40:25 PM Julie: LB: ::looks back:: What's wrong with you? It's torture!
4:40:32 PM Julie: : ::the other guard hands over the lighter::
4:41:27 PM Maeve: MV: ::she fidgets, trying to pull out of her bindings. The fear that wells up in her eyes isn't fabricated at all. Especially when the other guard stalks towards her::
4:41:49 PM Julie: LB: ::struggles, trying to knock her chair over::
4:42:36 PM Maeve: : ::He flicks it open then holds Maeve's arm down so that he can hold the flame to her skin:: Help me hold this one!
4:42:47 PM Quantum Catz: JK: ::they can hear his voice from outside, demanding to see Libby::
4:42:49 PM Maeve: MV: ::she starts screaming, hoping it'll make him stop::
4:43:04 PM Julie: : ::the guard holds Maeve's arm for a few moments before pulling back::
4:44:08 PM Maeve: : ::the guard keeps at it, gritting his teeth. He can barely hold the flame still against Maeve's movements though. After a minute, he pulls back, looking smug:: Not even red.
4:44:27 PM Maeve: MV: ::she stops screaming and sucks in a deep breath, slowly letting it out::
4:44:32 PM Julie: LB: ::calls out:: Jack!
4:45:45 PM Quantum Catz: JK: Let me see Libby now - you have no reason to hold her
4:46:48 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::has been waiting outside, forced into silence by the guards after they took the two women away; is now standing, looking rather pale after hearing Maeve's scream::
4:47:45 PM Maeve: MV: Maybe I naturally don't burn easily...
4:48:20 PM Maeve: : ::The guard outside stands in front of the door, blocking Jack:: You'll get your turn. Right now, we want to hear what she has to say.
4:48:44 PM Julie: : ::the first guard laughs:: You little liar.
4:49:24 PM Quantum Catz: JK: About what? She hasn't done anything
4:50:04 PM Maeve: MV: ::she glares at him:: I haven't confessed and I still say I don't know where the kids are nor have I seen them.
4:50:41 PM Maeve: : :You know about what Mr. Richards. And whether or not she's done anything has yet to be determined.
4:51:45 PM Quantum Catz: JK: The last i checked people were supposed to be innocent until you could prove otherwise
4:52:36 PM Maeve: : :They're just in for questioning Mr. Richards. Not sentencing.
4:53:02 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Then why's Maeve screaming? If you've hurt her...
4:53:25 PM Julie: : ::the guard shakes his head at Maeve:: It's obvious you've regained your powers. That means the gallows.
4:53:28 PM Julie: LB: ::gasps::
4:53:33 PM Maeve: : ::The guard at the door looks over at Isaac and laughs:: Right.
4:54:09 PM Maeve: MV: ::she pales:: I want my husband and I want out of here. Now. You can't do anything without a trial.
4:54:11 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::Grits his teeth:: It isn't funny
4:54:34 PM Julie: : And if you can set people on fire, you're a flight risk, ma'am.
4:54:46 PM Maeve: : ::He looks back at Jack then indicates the seats next to Isaac:: I think I'm going to have to ask the both of you to take a seat.
4:55:34 PM Maeve: MV: ::she pulls against the ropes, almost tempted to try burning them.:: I have a family! I'm not a flight risk.
4:57:58 PM Maeve: : ::The one with the lighter pulls away from Maeve, smirking:: Well, we're not getting anywhere with Mrs. Richards. Perhaps we should just bring in her husband?
4:58:10 PM Julie: LB: ::softly:: There's no need.
4:58:26 PM Maeve: : ::his eyes widen:: Oh? Then you'll confess?
4:58:46 PM Maeve: MV: ::she struggles again:: You have no proof that any of us were involved!
4:58:47 PM Julie: LB: ::shakes her head:: I have nothing to confess, sir.
4:59:41 PM Maeve: : ::he glares at her:: Then I guess we will have need of your husband. ::he looks at Maeve:: There's not a lick of evidence anywhere. We have to start somewhere. Lucky for you, this group was at the top of our list.
5:00:21 PM Julie: : ::the guard holds Maeve's shoulder:: Shush.
5:01:00 PM Maeve: MV: ::she wiggles her shoulder, trying to shove him off of her:: Oh? Now all of the sudden you want me *not* to talk?
5:03:41 PM Julie: : ::glares::
5:06:09 PM Quantum Catz: JK: Is my wife under arrest? Because if she isn't then you have no right to stop me seeing her
5:06:47 PM Maeve: : ::the other guard goes to open the door and smirks when he hears Jack's demand:: Well lucky you then. We're more than ready to hear your side of things.
5:07:37 PM Julie: LB: ::looks at Maeve, sadness in her eyes::
5:08:26 PM Maeve: MV: ::she shakes her head. This was her fault.::
5:08:46 PM Julie: ((What's she saying?))
5:09:14 PM Maeve: ((That it is Maeve's fault for being so quick to get her powers back :D ))
5:11:19 PM Quantum Catz: JK: I've never been anything but helpful towards the royal guard, and you should know that
5:11:42 PM Julie: : ::the other guard looks back at Jack:: We've been charged with getting the kids back, no matter what.
5:12:05 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::goes to Maeve:: Are you okay? Did they hurt you?
5:12:30 PM Maeve: : ::He reaches for Jack's arm:: And now you can be helpful in telling us where they are at. And why your friend in here has her powers back. ::he scowls at Isaac, trying to reach out and stop him:: Hey!
5:12:48 PM Julie: : ::the other guard grabs at Isaac too:: Get out of here!
5:12:55 PM Maeve: MV: ::she shakes her head, looking pale:: I'm fine!
5:14:50 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You can't arrest her again - the mayor and i had an agreement
5:15:39 PM Julie: : ::coldly:: That's fine, but he has no jurisdiction over the Royal Guard.
5:15:59 PM Maeve: : :The guard smirks:: And I hear that agreement involved having her powers gone. Which they are not.
5:16:16 PM Maeve: MV: ::her eyes widen:: What agreement?
5:16:39 PM Maeve: : ::he tries dragging Jack in::
5:16:48 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Nothing. I had to agree to your powers being removed, didn't i?
5:17:14 PM Quantum Catz: JK: ::pulls out of the man's grip:: Don't manhandle me. I already said i would help
5:18:45 PM Maeve: : ::he puts his hands up and nods:: Ok then. Tell us where they are.
5:19:29 PM Maeve: MV: ::she nods and looks away; softly.:: Doesn't matter now anyway, I guess...
5:20:39 PM Quantum Catz: JK: I'll help by telling you that i've been away on business all of this week - there are several people who'll tell you the same. I don't know where the kids were kept but i can bet you won't find any proof i was anywhere near them
5:21:02 PM Quantum Catz: And my wife has been home with our son. Unless you think they both traipsed off to find two well guarded kids
5:22:05 PM Maeve: : ::he puts his hands on his hips:: Fine. I want every one of those names. And no, I didn't expect that she did but I had a feeling she knew who did. And my hunch is still on you. ::he nods to the guard to get a piece of paper and pen::
5:23:16 PM Julie: LB: ::looks down, biting her lip::
5:23:27 PM Julie: : ::gets a pen and paper::
5:24:24 PM Maeve: : :And I don't want to hear any complaining if we hold you all here until we check this out.
5:26:32 PM Quantum Catz: JK: The last i checked, your queen owed both me and Maeve a debt - the least we deserve is a little respect ::though he gives over the names without further argument::
5:27:42 PM Julie: ; ::the guard taking notes looks a bit guilty; quietly:: I don't really care if she hangs, but we must find those kids. We've been given authority to do whatever we must to do it.
5:28:53 PM Maeve: : :The queen won't care in the end. There are too many variants out there that can easily break through bars before we can get the chance to hang them. ::he looks at Maeve:: She might even be one of them. She's been lucky enough.
5:30:26 PM Maeve: MV: ::she glares back:: Ok. You've established that I'm going to hang. So why don't you get on with dragging me to a cell already?
5:30:41 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve...
5:31:09 PM Maeve: : :He looks down at the names:: I would, but since you have your powers we now know you've seen the kids. You could save us some time hunting down these names?
5:31:24 PM Julie: : ::looks up at Isaac:: Do you know where they are?
5:31:26 PM Maeve: MV: ::she looks back at Isaac, sadly, and shrugs. She ignores the guard::
5:32:22 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::Shakes his head:: I wouldn't even know where to look to find them. I've been here in town healing people every day anyway
5:32:51 PM Maeve: : :But you do know who was with them when they came to give your wife back her powers?
5:38:47 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I don't know what you're talking about - Maeve's powers are still gone ::though he glances towards her, not sure what happened in the room she was being questioned in::
5:39:15 PM Julie: LB: ::winces::
5:39:20 PM Maeve: MV: ::she winces too::
5:39:21 PM Julie: : ::the guard with the pen and paper smirks:: I see.
5:40:32 PM Maeve: MV: ::softly:: Isaac knows nothing. I kept it a secret.
5:40:50 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve...
5:41:08 PM Maeve: : ::the guard opens the lighter again, looking smug::
5:41:36 PM Maeve: MV: ::she shakes her head at Isaac, looking defeated::
5:41:57 PM Julie: : ::the other guard glances at his partner:: Then you're of no help to us, Mr. Kindall.
5:42:25 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I'm not leaving her here
5:42:42 PM Maeve: : ::He reaches for Isaac's arm:: You have no choice.
5:43:03 PM Maeve: MV: ::quietly:: Isaac it's ok. Just... just... ::she sighs and shakes her head::
5:44:14 PM Julie: : ::the guard sets down his pen and paper:: Go on, Mr. Kindall. We'll summon you back if...
5:47:32 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Please...let me stay...
5:48:56 PM Maeve: : ::He smirks:: You get your wife to tell us what she knows and you can stay.
5:49:10 PM Maeve: MV: Why should I tell you anything? I'm going to hang.
5:50:39 PM Julie: : ::softly:: We don't want your little one hurt.
5:51:01 PM Maeve: MV: ::she glares:: And what do you think will happen when you hang me!
5:56:13 PM Quantum Catz: IS: They couldn't do it - they couldn't hang you unless they could protect Livvy
5:56:57 PM Maeve: MV: Then a life in prison. What does it matter Isaac? I have no reason to tell them anything even IF I knew something.
5:57:05 PM Julie: : ::the guard shakes his head; softly:: Whatever it takes...
5:57:38 PM Maeve: MV: ::she glares at him:: You try it and I'll kill you first. You're not hurting my daughter.
6:01:06 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve...threatening them won't help
6:01:30 PM Julie: : We have to know, ma'am...sir.
6:02:01 PM Maeve: MV: I don't know where they are! I don't know who took them!
6:18:32 PM Julie: : ::after a bit of failed questioning, they finally go to cuff Jack::
6:19:01 PM Maeve: : ::He reaches for Isaac's arm again:: Ok. Time for you to go. ::he motions to Libby:: We don't need her anymore either.
6:19:11 PM Quantum Catz: JK: You're not cuffing me. I've told you where i was - i'll stay here but i won't be your prisoner
6:19:57 PM Maeve: : ::the guard that was originally at the door goes to get Libby::
6:20:23 PM Julie: LB: Let them go!
6:20:36 PM Julie: : ::the guard with the cuffs lowers them, swallowing::
6:20:59 PM Maeve: : ::Libby's guard smirks:: If your husband's story pans out you'll see him soon.
6:21:26 PM Quantum Catz: JK: Libby - go home - i'll be there once they've got their facts straight
6:21:40 PM Julie: LB: ::nods, glancing at Maeve::
6:22:07 PM Maeve: MV: :;she nods at her friend:: I'll...I'll see you later.. ::she tries to smile::
6:22:43 PM Julie: LB: ::blinks back a couple tears::
6:23:22 PM Maeve: : ::the guard takes her arm, leading her out::
6:23:30 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Why do i have to go? I'd rather be near Maeve
6:23:59 PM Maeve: : ::he smirks:: You going to confess everything? Because where she's going they only let criminals in.
6:24:50 PM Quantum Catz: IS: After the way she's been treated, i don't trust any of you not to hurt her
6:25:42 PM Julie: : ::shakes his head:: Get going, before we force you out.
6:26:05 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks over at Maeve, uncertain::
6:26:06 PM Maeve: MV: Isaac... please? I don't want them to try to pin something on you. Besides, Livvy needs you...
6:26:47 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates, then:: I'll...okay...i'll see you soon
6:27:07 PM Maeve: MV: ::she nods; softly:: I love you...
6:31:23 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I love you too
6:32:24 PM Maeve: : ::the guard smirks, rolling his eyes, then pulls Isaac out::
