2:39:02 PM Julie: DV: ::is on the border of going into shock from his burns--it says something about him that he's able to stay on the horse at all, when they finally reach the base, a cluster of cabins that look like a farming town::
2:39:59 PM Maeve: MV: ::she's pale, and a little scared of what might happen to David. When he pulls the horse to a stop, she slides off first then offers her hand to help him down.::
2:40:44 PM Julie: DV: ::clings to the horse; it would hurt more to move than to stay where he is::
2:41:42 PM Maeve: MV: ::she sighs:: Come on David. You can't stay up there *and* get help.
2:42:13 PM Julie: DV: ::groans, and grits his teeth, trying to slide off the horse::
2:42:48 PM Maeve: MV: ::she moves her hand to grip the reigns instead, keeping the animal in place::
2:44:13 PM Julie: DV: ::breathes deeply through his teeth as he hits the ground, still relying on the horse for support::
2:44:31 PM Quantum Catz: : ::david's boss is a thin looking man, with a rather weasly look. He moves out of his cabin, ordering one of the other men to go take David for medical treatment::
2:45:53 PM Maeve: MV: ::she tenses; weakly:: I can take him.
2:47:42 PM Julie: DV: ::yells when the other man touches him, but he grits his teeth again, glancing at Maeve for a moment before he's led off::
2:47:56 PM Quantum Catz: : You've done enough, i'm sure. Come with me
2:48:25 PM Maeve: MV: ::she looks back at David, pleadingly::
2:49:44 PM Julie: DV: ::takes a deep breath:: She killed her men!
2:54:13 PM Quantum Catz: : So how did you get hurt then?
2:56:19 PM Julie: DV: ::shudders, not answering::
2:57:45 PM Quantum Catz: : Answer me, David or you'll be in as much trouble as her
2:58:17 PM Maeve: MV: ::she shivers; softly:: You can't do anything to me. You'll kill my daughter.
2:59:17 PM Julie: DV: ::closes his eyes; in a low voice:: She wanted out.
3:00:56 PM Quantum Catz: : Getting out can always be arranged ::smirks and turns to look at Maeve:: You think your daughter's more important to me than my men? In case you didn't notice, you're dead already - how could her death be linked to me?
3:01:38 PM Maeve: MV: ::she takes a step back:: I just don't want my daughter hurt.
3:02:17 PM Quantum Catz: : You're not acting like it
3:02:31 PM Julie: DV: She just needs trained.
3:04:59 PM Maeve: MV: ::she looks away, cringing::
3:05:06 PM Quantum Catz: : Trained not to attack the people she's sent out with? If she was my dog, i'd already have put her down
3:06:19 PM Julie: DV: It won't happen again, sir.
3:07:32 PM Maeve: MV: ::she pales but wisely keeps her mouth shut::
3:09:28 PM Quantum Catz: : ::turns to the other man and mutters:: Get him to the doctor before he keels over
3:09:53 PM Julie: : ::the man attending David nods, rushing him off::
3:10:00 PM Julie: DV: ::doesn't look back::
3:10:54 PM Maeve: MV: ::she takes another step back:: Well, I'm just going...to.. ::heads for the little hut they've placed her in::
3:12:29 PM Quantum Catz: : You stop and listen to me now, or you won't be going anywhere again
3:13:54 PM Maeve: MV: ::she pauses, tensing:: I wouldn't mind really. As long as you took me home first.
3:14:53 PM Quantum Catz: : Again with the attitude.
3:15:49 PM Maeve: MV: ::she puts her hands on her hips and glares:: Oh I'm sorry. You rip me from my home and then you want me to go along with your plan without a complaint? I'm not trained! I don't know what I'm doing! And I don't like any of you!
3:20:53 PM Quantum Catz: : ::the man suddenly moves, too fast for her to react, and punches her in the stomach::
3:21:48 PM Maeve: MV: ::she doubles over, gasping:: You..just..proved...my point... ::she reaches out, trying to find something to steady herself with. She can't draw in a breath::
3:23:40 PM Quantum Catz: : ::kicks his leg out to strike her knee::
3:24:19 PM Maeve: MV: ::she goes down, crying out::
3:25:10 PM Quantum Catz: : Let's get one thing straight - every time you run your mouth off, you get hurt. Every time you behave, you don't. If my dog can learn this, you can too
3:25:45 PM Maeve: MV: ::she lays still, trying to catch her breath::
3:29:03 PM Quantum Catz: : ::kneels next to her, grabbing her by the chin to make her look at him:: Are we clear?
3:29:57 PM Maeve: MV: ::she tenses. Every muscle in her body screams for her to fight; weakly:: Yes.
3:34:43 PM Quantum Catz: : Well, it's a start. ::pushes her head away and stands up again::
3:35:33 PM Maeve: MV: ::she flinches and her fists clench but she says nothing. A moment later, she gets to her feet::
3:37:31 PM Quantum Catz: : David was right - you do need trained. Mainly just to know your place, to keep your mouth shut and realise that doing your job is the only thing that'll keep you alive. We'll start tomorrow
3:38:27 PM Maeve: MV: ::she turns her face away to hide the threat of tears. She doesn't want this but she nods her head anyway::
3:41:24 PM Quantum Catz: : Just remember this - everything that happens now, you brought on yourself. We could easily provide you with the hanging you deserve if you don't want to do it any more
3:42:20 PM Maeve: MV: ::she crosses her arms over herself; whispers:: I am painfully aware of that, thank you.
3:47:20 PM Quantum Catz: : ::this time he slaps her::
3:50:17 PM Maeve: MV: ::she yelps and covers her cheek with her hand. She opens her mouth to ask what that was for but since he deemed it necessary to hurt her for a simple comment, she clamps her mouth closed. She can't keep the ire
3:50:19 PM Maeve: out of her eyes though. Before she follows through with the urge to hit him back, she walks away::
3:51:37 PM Quantum Catz: : Be at my cabin at 6 tomorrow morning.
3:51:53 PM Maeve: MV: ::mutters:: Fine.
