~Tuesday, June 15, 1937~

3:56:56 PM Maggie: :::there's a soft scraping noise as Isaac's closet door magically opens on its own:: 

3:59:56 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::is just leaving his room to go check on Livvy and doesn't even notice::

4:00:43 PM Maggie: ::one of Maeve's well worn dresses, one that she mostly wore around the house, floats out. It drapes itself across the bed::

4:02:27 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::goes into Livvy's room, moving to her bed::

4:03:21 PM Maggie: LA: ::the door to her room is open as she is checking on the twins. It's almost time for them to have their afternoon feeding::

4:04:42 PM Julie: LV:  ::is still fussing a lot overall, often calling "Mama"; right now, she's asleep, but opens her eyes under her dad's gaze::

4:06:41 PM Maggie: ::a pair of Maeve's shoes walk out of the closet and stop by the bed where her dress is::

4:07:02 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Hey, honey ::reaches out to touch her face::

4:09:09 PM Julie: LO:  ::was fairly content, but when he sees his mother, starts fussing, wanting to be fed first::

4:09:56 PM Maggie: LA: ::she smiles down at her wee son, and lifts him out of the cradle:: Ok enough of that. You'll get your sister started. 

4:11:56 PM Maggie: ::Isaac may see a string of Maeve's pearls laying across Livvy's small dresser. They weren't there yesterday::

4:12:38 PM Quantum Catz: JS: ::yawns but doesn't start complaining yet, for once::

4:12:58 PM Maggie: LA: ::she sits herself down in the rocker:: 

4:13:40 PM Julie: LO:  ::calms when it's clear he'll be fed; even gives his mother a little smile::

4:14:26 PM Maggie: LA: ::she settles Leon against her then sets the rocker in motion, humming softly;:

4:15:14 PM Julie: LV:  ::looks at Isaac; whispers::  Da...

4:19:19 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks over at the necklace, frowning a bit, as he picks Livvy up:: How're you feeling today?  

4:19:38 PM Julie: LV:  ::pauses; softly::  Mama.

4:20:00 PM Quantum Catz: JS: ::starts moaning a bit::

4:20:20 PM Julie: LO:  ::is nursing in utter contentment::

4:20:39 PM Maggie: LA: ::she looks up then calls softly:: You'll get your turn Jessie. 

4:21:12 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::Sighs:: Yeah, i know ::moves over to pick up the necklace, wondering how it got there::

4:24:24 PM Quantum Catz: JS: ::continues to moan a bit, like she's still deciding how upset to get::

4:25:12 PM Julie: JH:  ::is just getting back from exercising with the fire department; he goes right over to the fireplace and stares at it, remembering when Maeve would light it for him::

4:26:52 PM Maggie: LA: ::she continues to hum softly, hoping it'll settle her daughter down::

4:27:08 PM Maggie: ::before Jessie can decide to get too vocal, her crib begins to rock gently:: 

4:27:13 PM Julie: JH:  ::exhales; after a moment, he goes up to make sure Isaac is home; stops by the open bedroom door and pauses::

4:27:43 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::puts the necklace in his pocket and moves out of the room:: Hey, Josh

4:28:10 PM Quantum Catz: JS: ::quietens a bit::

4:28:45 PM Maggie: LA: :she looks up when Jessie quiets down a little then jerks the rocker to a complete stop. Her eyes widen:: 

4:28:49 PM Julie: JH:  ::looks up at Isaac, like he's been caught doing something; flushes::  H...hi.

4:32:09 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Did you put Maeve's necklace in Livvy's room? I just found it there

4:32:21 PM Quantum Catz: JS: ::moans when the rocking stops::

4:32:41 PM Julie: JH:  ::eyes go wide; shakes his head::  I haven't been in there!

4:33:05 PM Julie: LO:  ::seems to be getting sleepy::

4:33:21 PM Maggie: LA: ::she doesn't move but the crib begins rocking again:: Isaac!  

4:34:26 PM Maggie: LA: ::she stops nursing, and puts Leon upon her shoulder, patting his back gently as she stares worriedly at her daughter's crib::

4:34:45 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves through to Leyla:: What's wrong?

4:34:53 PM Julie: LO:  ::lets out a little burp::

4:35:09 PM Maggie: LA: ::she nods to the crib that is still moving on its own::

4:35:57 PM Julie: JH:  ::follows his brother, frowning::

4:36:23 PM Maggie: ::the crib slows to a stop and the brothers feel a cold breeze go by them::

4:36:44 PM Quantum Catz: IS: What...? ::looks around when he feels the breeze::

4:38:14 PM Maggie: LA: The crib was moving. On its own... 

4:38:23 PM Julie: JH:  ::gets goosebumps; softly::  Do you think one of the twins...

4:38:45 PM Quantum Catz: JS: ::starts moaning again when the crib stops::

4:38:51 PM Maggie: ::the breeze lingers on Isaac's hand then seems to blow towards his room:: 

4:40:08 PM Maggie: LA: ::she places Leon back in his crib then quickly reaches to pluck Jessie from the crib:: I don't know. 

4:40:36 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::flexes his hand, looking towards his room, uncertainly::

4:40:51 PM Julie: JH:  ::swallows; after a moment::  Isaac, are you okay?

4:44:06 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I just...thought i felt a breeze on my hand

4:44:25 PM Julie: JH:  ::softly::  Not that...your bedroom...

4:45:16 PM Quantum Catz: JS: ::makes a cooing noise at being picked up::

4:45:50 PM Quantum Catz: IS: What about my bedroom?

4:46:22 PM Maggie: LA: ::she cuddles her daughter close to her:: 

4:46:42 PM Julie: JH:  ::winces, leaving the room, not wanting to call Isaac out in front of the others::

4:47:56 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::frowns and moves towards his room:: What're you talking about, Josh?

4:48:07 PM Julie: JH:  ::motions to the bed, swallowing::

4:49:26 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::pales when he sees the dress draped across the bed:: I...didn't do that

4:50:13 PM Maggie: ::the cold breeze lingers on his cheek, as if it just kissed him, then is gone::

4:50:19 PM Julie: JH:  ::looks back at his brother, trusting him; softly::  Sorry.  I...was afraid...::exhales::

4:51:34 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::shivers when he feels the breeze on his cheek::

4:53:53 PM Julie: JH:  ::after a moment::  I was going to go downstairs and practice with the fire again...but maybe I should stay with you?

4:58:17 PM Maggie: ::the picture Isaac keeps by the bed is gone:: 

4:58:43 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: My picture's gone

4:59:15 PM Julie: JH:  ::looks at the bedside table, then at the floor; softly::  Give it back.

5:02:04 PM Julie: LV:  ::is fussing in Isaac's arms::

5:02:30 PM Maggie: ::the breeze swirls around livvy, ruffling her hair playfully.::

5:03:12 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::looking kind of pale:: Whoever you are, stop it

5:04:00 PM Julie: LV:  ::sneezes::

5:04:52 PM Maggie: ::a figure of a woman with long wavy hair appears by the closet door then disappears inside. They hear clothes hitting the floor:: 

5:05:18 PM Julie: JH:  ::his jaw drops::  Stop it!  Those aren't yours!

5:06:12 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::is just home from work, he closes the door, yawning and goes through to the living room; calls out:: Who put the fire on? It's roasting in here

5:07:10 PM Julie: JH:  ::shivers::  Put it out!

5:07:59 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves towards the closet, holding livvy in one hand and yanking the door open with the other::

5:08:41 PM Maggie: ::most of Maeve's clothes are in a pile on the floor. The picture he keeps is laying next to it::

5:10:34 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::Shouts:: Who are you? Why are you doing this?

5:11:06 PM Maggie: ::the image reappears, kissing his cheek again then is gone:: 

5:11:37 PM Julie: JH:  ::turns very pale, and is trembling::  Don't touch him!

5:12:08 PM Maggie: LA: ::calls from the bedroom; worriedly:: What's going on?

5:14:17 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::comes up the stairs:: Fire's blazing, Josh. What's going on?

5:14:56 PM Julie: JH:  ::swallows::  There's...a ghost.  ::runs down the stairs to put out the fire, hoping he doesn't burn himself::

5:16:15 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves back to sit on his bed, wincing when he realises he's sitting next to Maeve's dress::

5:16:33 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::repeats:: A ghost?

5:17:01 PM Maggie: ::starts to push her clothes out of the closet. The picture is now on the pile::

5:17:30 PM Julie: LV:  ::starts to sob::

5:19:16 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: Stop it

5:19:35 PM Maggie: ::the clothes keep moving, heading towards the door::

5:19:43 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::moves forward and picks up the moving clothes and the picture, rather forcefully::

5:20:21 PM Maggie: ::the clothes feel cold but he's able to get them.::

5:24:06 PM Julie: JH:  ::comes back up, his hands stinging from the fire, but not blistered::

5:25:14 PM Maggie: ::the breeze flows around Josh's hands then he feels two delicate hands gently push him towards Isaac:: 

5:25:41 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::is trying to calm Livvy down, though he's rather shaken himself::

5:26:01 PM Quantum Catz: JS: ::starts to cry because she can hear Livvy crying::

5:27:11 PM Maggie: LA: ::she leaves the rocker, gently bouncing Jessie:: It's ok darling. Livvy isn't doing anything you're not doing.... ::she frowns::

5:28:08 PM Julie: LV:  ::whispers::  Da...

5:30:22 PM Maggie: ::nudges another picture of Maeve::

5:31:12 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::drops the clothes back in the closet and slams the door closed; snarls:: Whoever you are, we'll hunt you out. This isn't funny

5:31:40 PM Maggie: ::nudges the picture again:: 

5:31:59 PM Maggie: ::then nudges a clock:: 

5:32:46 PM Julie: JH:  ::is shaking; looks at Livvy; softly::  Livvy's upset...it can't be.

5:33:29 PM Maggie: LA: ::she looks around, her eyes wide:: Maybe it's why Livvy has been upset?

5:34:54 PM Quantum Catz: EK: It can't be a ghost

5:36:07 PM Maggie: LA: ::looks back to her husband;softly:: It was rocking Jessie's cradle while I was nursing Leon...

5:36:28 PM Julie: LV:  ::is still fussing::

5:36:43 PM Julie: JH:  ::bites his lip; shakes his head::  It's not.

5:37:23 PM Maggie: ::tugs at the dress beside Isaac::

5:38:48 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::jumps up, holding Livvy tightly:: Stop it.

5:39:26 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::changes into a fox and starts sniffing, moving towards the door to try and find a scent that doesn't belong there::

5:39:50 PM Maggie: ::nudges the clock again then moves for the dress::

5:42:00 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::snaps:: If you are Maeve then stop it because you're not helping!

5:42:36 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::stops near Leyla and turns to look at his brother when he shouts::

5:42:41 PM Maggie: ::the dress stops moving. The clock moves again. And Eli can't pick up any scents:: 

5:43:04 PM Julie: JH:  ::looks at Livvy again; whispers::  It's not her.

5:43:55 PM Maggie: LA: ::she shivers:: 

5:44:14 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::bounds off to go and sniff around the house, in case someone's able to do this from further away::

5:45:46 PM Maggie: ::the image appears next to the clock. The form is right for Maeve, and the hair, but the features are too blurred to tell anything else. The clock gets nudges again then the image goes:: 

5:46:20 PM Julie: JH:  ::blinks back tears, shivering::  Maybe...we should leave.

5:46:50 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::nods, though he's rather haunted by the image, moves towards the door::

5:47:06 PM Maggie: ::the door slams shut:: 

5:47:31 PM Julie: JH:  ::narrows his eyes, silently::

5:47:33 PM Quantum Catz: JS: ::cries out over the loud noise::

5:47:49 PM Julie: LV:  ::is still upset::

5:47:49 PM Maggie: LA: ::she jumps as it almost closes on her. She holds her daughter close, rocking her:: Eli! 

5:48:23 PM Maggie: ::the lamp rattles, then the door, then a few other items as the being in the room gets more frustrated::

5:50:33 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::hears Leyla shout and runs back up the stairs; changes back and tries to open the door::

5:51:07 PM Maggie: ::the door opens though he is met with some resistance::

5:52:28 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Come on - come downstairs before whoever it is moves onto all the rest of Maeve's stuff

5:53:09 PM Julie: JH:  ::goes out to get Leon::

5:53:35 PM Maggie: LA:  ::she quickly goes out, pausing only briefly to see that Josh is getting her son, then goes down the stairs::

5:56:07 PM Julie: LV:  ::calms a little when they leave the room::

5:56:33 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::goes downstairs, not saying anything, looking rather pale::

5:57:50 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::once they leave the room he heads downstairs and goes to sniff around the house, in case there was anyone handing round who shouldn't be::

6:00:46 PM Maggie: ::Maeve's coat that is still hanging on the coat rack flies off and lands on the porch outside.::

6:01:15 PM Julie: JH:  Whatever you are, stop it!

6:02:11 PM Maggie: ::nudges a clock hanging on the wall::

6:03:15 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::comes back after a bit and turns back, rather glaring at the coat on the porch as he picks it up:: There's no one nearby

6:03:47 PM Julie: JH:  ::whispers::  Will it just follow us?

6:04:29 PM Maggie: LA: ::whispers:: It is touching a lot of things... maybe Guy could sense what this is? 

6:05:03 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::hesitates:: I know someone who could tell what it was

6:05:25 PM Maggie: LA: Could they talk to it too? Get rid of it?

6:06:02 PM Maggie: ::a picture of Maeve and Isaac hits the floor::

6:06:16 PM Julie: LV:  ::starts to cry::

6:06:40 PM Maggie: ::the breeze ruffles around Livvy in an apology, trying to soothe her::

6:06:54 PM Quantum Catz: EK: She'd...see it for what it really is.  At least then we'd know what we were dealing with

6:07:24 PM Julie: LV:  ::cries harder::

6:07:28 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::backs away from the breeze:: If you don't want her upset then stop throwing things

6:07:29 PM Maggie: LA: Then I guess it is worth a try. 

6:07:37 PM Julie: JH:  ::nods::

6:07:59 PM Maggie: ::the picture floats up and is placed back on the table::

6:08:42 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::hesitates again, then changes into a fox and turns and runs out the door::

6:09:50 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks at the picture as it moves back:: Thank you

6:10:41 PM Julie: JH:  ::frowns::  Don't thank it!

6:11:06 PM Maggie: ::there's a pad and pen sitting on the coffee table. The pen lifts up and the words "Time to let go" scrawl across the page. 

6:11:08 PM Maggie: The writing is sloppy, as if the ghost doesn't quite know how to hold a pen:: 

6:11:41 PM Julie: JH:  ::takes a few steps forward, wanting to throw the pen to the ground, but he belatedly remembers the child in his arms::

6:11:47 PM Maggie: LA: ::she sees movement and her eyes widen. The longer she stares, the more it writes, the wider her eyes get::

6:12:49 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves over to the pad and reads it; wincing:: Who are you to tell us that?

6:13:04 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::reaches Cathy's house and hcnages back, knocking on the door::

6:13:46 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy answers a minute later, putting her hands in her pockets::  What's wrong?

6:15:03 PM Maggie: ::Maeve::

6:15:18 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::hesitates:: There's...someone in the house.  They're pretending to be Maeve's ghost or something.  I couldn't find anyone nearby...

6:15:43 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::shivers; blinking back tears:: You can't be

6:16:08 PM Maggie: ::there's a cold touch to his cheek:: 

6:16:11 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy winces; softly::  I'll...come.

6:16:24 PM Julie: JH:  ::coldly::  You *aren't*.

6:17:19 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I'm sorry - i wouldn't ask but...it's upsetting the others.  At least you could tell them it's definitely not her

6:17:48 PM Maggie: ::writes: Let go. Before it's too late::

6:18:09 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy nods, slipping out and locking the door::  And if it is her?

6:18:56 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I don't believe it

6:28:22 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You're not Maeve, don't do this

6:28:45 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy shrugs::  Why not?

6:29:28 PM Maggie: ::the pen moves again; Have to. ::

6:30:19 PM Julie: JH:  Put that pen down!

6:31:33 PM Maggie: ::If you love me, let me go; the pen drops:: 

6:32:10 PM Quantum Catz: EK: It just can't be

6:32:35 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy shrugs::  Lots of weird things happen.  ::her eyes on the road, not Eli::

6:33:20 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Stop it!

6:33:41 PM Maggie: ::the coldness touches his cheek again::

6:34:18 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I don't really like the idea of Maeve hanging around spying on us from beyond the grave

6:34:45 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy shrugs, staying silent::

6:37:00 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::backs away from the coldness::

6:37:34 PM Maggie: ::the pen moves again; I'm sorry:: 

6:38:19 PM Julie: JH:  ::softly::  We're moving on as best we can.  Please leave us alone, whatever you are.

6:39:05 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::reaches the house and pushes open the door, walking in::

6:40:22 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy follows him in, wincing::

6:42:04 PM Maggie: LA: ::she smiles weakly at Cathy and continues to rock Jessie:: 

6:42:43 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy doesn't look at Leyla; quietly::  What am I focusing on?

6:43:11 PM Maggie: ::the pen drops and rolls off the table, hitting the floor::

6:43:34 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy closes her eyes, reaching out to find out what is before them::

6:47:09 PM Maggie: ::the ghost, being, whatever, is hiding at the moment:: 

6:47:27 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy frowns::  I felt something when I walked in, but it's gone now.

6:48:37 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Typical - now it goes away

6:49:53 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy shrugs, smirking::  Guess you just need me around all the time.

6:50:14 PM Maggie: LA: ::frowns:: Maybe we just need to coax her back out?

6:51:20 PM Quantum Catz: IS: How?

6:51:38 PM Julie: JH:  ::sullenly::  Act sad, I guess.

6:51:44 PM Maggie: LA: ::looks back at Isaac, smirking::

6:54:07 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs and then calls out:: If you really want us to move on, then show yourself!   Prove to us who you are!

6:55:26 PM Maggie: ::there's a long pause and then suddenly Maeve's image appears in front of the others. Though, Cathy may see the image of an older man. He has Eli's features:: 

6:55:47 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy gasps::  He looks like you, Eli.

6:56:35 PM Maggie: ::Maeve/the old man gasps and then frowns:: 

6:57:59 PM Julie: JH:  ::stares at the image, then at Cathy, then back at the image; whispers::  You can't be her.  I've...hoped too many times.

6:58:09 PM Julie: LV:  ::just sobs::  Da!

6:58:13 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::frowns:: Me?

6:58:45 PM Maggie: LA: ::she takes a step back and moves over to her husband::

6:59:13 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::weakly, upset to see Maeve in front of him:: If you're not really Maeve, then don't pretend to be her.  Please...

6:59:40 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy frowns::  An older man.  He's wearing old-fashioned clothes.

7:00:09 PM Maggie: ::Maeve's image disappears, replaced by the man's real image. He looks sadly at the floor::

7:00:34 PM Julie: JH:  ::gasps::  Who...what...

7:01:42 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::rests his hand on Leyla's back, though he glances towards Cathy; turns back to the man:: What are you doing here?

7:02:12 PM Maggie: ::he floats over to the pen and picks it up; Wanted to help. Holding on hurts more.::

7:02:45 PM Julie: JH:  ::coldly::  She's dead; we get it!

7:04:01 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks over at Cathy:: Is he really a ghost?

7:04:43 PM Julie: :  ::frowns::  He looks like one.  ::takes a couple steps closer, then closes her eyes, reaching out with her mind, stretching the limits of her power::

7:07:14 PM Quantum Catz: IS: We don't...need your help.

7:08:11 PM Maggie: ::Sorry. I thought I could help you move on::

7:08:43 PM Quantum Catz: IS: But...why?  Why pretend... ::blinks back tears again:: Why do all that?

7:09:23 PM Maggie: ::He pauses and his image flickers as he gets weaker; So you'd know it was OK. To move on.::

7:09:51 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy whispers::  It's...it's a person...and a ghost.  A relative?

7:10:11 PM Maggie: ::the man nods::

7:12:09 PM Quantum Catz: IS: It isn't that easy

7:12:47 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy swallows::  So you're the ghost of...a grandfather?

7:14:04 PM Maggie: ::he pauses, frowning then writes; Grandfather. Not a ghost really. Body gone...spirit stays.::

7:14:35 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy's eyes go wide::

7:16:15 PM Maggie: ::the door opens and Dolly comes in, though she pauses to wave goodbye. When she turns back, her face is flushed:: 

7:16:16 PM Maggie: Hello... ::the smile fades when she sees their expression and then the ghost.::: Who is that?

7:16:54 PM Julie: JH:  ::a bit pale::  He says he's our grandfather.

7:17:00 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::mutters to the man:: Isn't being a spirit without the body the definition of a ghost?

7:17:29 PM Maggie: ::the man pauses, looking frustrated then shakes his head. Writes; My power.::

7:18:03 PM Maggie: DK: ::looks at Josh, her eyes widening then finally sees Cathy and goes pale; whispers:: What is *she* doing here?

7:18:36 PM Maggie: LA: ::she looks a little puzzled but says nothing. She's still trying to make sure Jessie doesn't start wailing again::

7:18:45 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy grimaces::  Eli asked me to come.  ::frowns at him::  But if you have your answers, maybe I should go.

7:19:39 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::glares at his sister for asking that with Leyla so close:: Thanks, Cathy.

7:20:13 PM Maggie: DK: ::she looks back at her feet, shifting:: 

7:20:41 PM Julie: :  ::Cathy nods; quietly::  Good luck.  ::slips out::

7:22:56 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks back towards the door as Cathy leaves::

7:25:43 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates at what the pad says, looking up at Dolly before turning to the man:: You mean you're...stuck?

7:26:19 PM Maggie: ::the man nods. His gaze travels to Dolly since the others looked::

7:26:36 PM Maggie: DK: ::she frowns:: What? 

7:27:15 PM Julie: JH:  He...says...he's related to us..just a spirit...now.

7:27:51 PM Maggie: DK: ::she bites her lip;:

7:28:23 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Where have you...been....all this time?

7:29:05 PM Maggie: ::Wandering. After wife died.::

7:37:05 PM Quantum Catz: IS: That was before i was even born

7:38:01 PM Maggie: ::the man nods. He tears off another sheet of paper. Writes: Time went.::

7:38:24 PM Julie: JH:  ::swallows::  What...what about Mom?

7:39:17 PM Maggie: ::the man cringes; She's bound to home. I'm bound to the island.::

7:39:51 PM Julie: JH:  ::his eyes go wide::  She...told me she was whole again...

7:40:10 PM Maggie: DK: ::she turns pale:: Wait...that doesn't mean I'm going to be stuck? Does it? 

7:40:26 PM Maggie: ::the man frowns::

7:43:50 PM Julie: JH:  ::softly::  Mom wasn't.

7:44:23 PM Maggie: ::the man hesitates then writes again; Saxton is gone. Maybe she got to move on?::

7:46:49 PM Maggie: DK: ::she looks at her older brother, worriedly:: 

7:48:22 PM Maggie: ::Looking sad; I will go now.::

7:48:36 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Where?

7:48:40 PM Julie: JH:  ::winces::

7:48:52 PM Maggie: ::the man frowns. He didn't think they'd care.::

7:49:06 PM Maggie: DK: ::still looks worried. About herself and their mother::

7:49:40 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You don't...you don't have to go. 

7:50:09 PM Julie: JH:  ::quietly::  Promise you won't pretend to be Maeve...

7:52:23 PM Maggie: ::the winces and nods. He frowns;  You want me to stay?:: 

7:54:26 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks surprised:: You want to have a live in ghost? 

7:54:40 PM Julie: JH:  ::softly::  Maybe he can help us figure out how to help Dolly.

7:55:07 PM Quantum Catz: EK: She might not need any help - we don't know her power's exactly like his

7:55:31 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::Softly:: He's family.  Family stick together, no matter the circumstances

7:55:38 PM Maggie: DK: ::she pales even more::

7:56:39 PM Julie: JH:  ::looks over at Dolly sadly::

7:57:09 PM Maggie: ::the man nods; Will help if needed::

7:59:13 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::sighs:: Well i guess there are three babies that are always looking for attention

7:59:30 PM Maggie: ::the man grins, nodding::

7:59:41 PM Maggie: LA: ::she smiles slightly:: Jessie seemed to like him.

8:01:23 PM Maggie: ((Skip at will. *I* have nothing left))

8:01:31 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::smiles weakly and reaches out to wave a finger in front of Jessie's face:: She just doesn't like people ignoring her

8:02:59 PM Quantum Catz: JS: ::coos and reaches for his finger::

8:04:09 PM Maggie: LA: ::smirks:: I wonder who she gets that from. ::she holds Jessie out for him to take::

8:06:22 PM Maggie: ((you could skip now ;) Just corner Dolly if that is what you are going to do. heh))

8:08:45 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::makes a face:: I can't imagine ::takes Jessie::

8:11:24 PM Maggie: :::later that evening, while everyone else is still getting acquainted with their Grandfather, and the twins are asleep, Dolly slips outside to sit under the big tree beside the house.::

8:12:47 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::comes out of the house and leans against the tree::

8:13:22 PM Maggie: DK: ::she jumps and looks up, frowning:: 

8:15:21 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Hey

8:15:49 PM Maggie: DK: ::she smirks:: Hey... 

8:17:05 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Not wanting to talk to grand-daddy?

8:17:48 PM Maggie: DK: ::she shrugs and looks away:: No. I just.. wanted to sit outside for a while.

8:19:58 PM Quantum Catz: EK: It didn't mean anything that I brought Cathy round.  I just knew she would be able to see what he really was...

8:20:35 PM Maggie: DK: ::she sighs:: I can't believe you haven't told her Eli. 

8:22:20 PM Quantum Catz: EK: There's nothing to tell

8:22:49 PM Maggie: DK: Right. Then why are you trying so hard to hide it?

8:24:31 PM Quantum Catz: EK: It'll just seem worse than it is.  I hardly ever see Cathy.  Nothing's ever going to happen.  Why upset her?

8:27:50 PM Maggie: DK: Because she's going to learn of it sooner or later. Things never stay buried for long Eli.

8:28:55 PM Quantum Catz: EK: You shouldn't have reacted the way you did right in front of her

8:29:35 PM Maggie: DK: It wouldn't have been my fault if she'd put it together. *You* should have told her. 

8:32:57 PM Quantum Catz: EK: What was I supposed to say? 'You know that dream world we were in? Well, while i was there i forgot about you and thought i was in love with someone else'.  That would go down well.  You saw how Isaac reacted to Maeve and Harry

8:34:31 PM Maggie: DK: ::she cringes:: Yeah I did. And what do you think the reaction will be once so much time has passed, yet you haven't told her? She will find out Eli. ::she gets up:: Secrets never keep.

8:35:43 PM Quantum Catz: EK: It will as long as you don't say anything.  Cathy never will

8:36:25 PM Maggie: DK: ::she glares at her brother:: I wouldn't say anything to her! But it might not be anything that we say. ::she turns on her heel and stalks towards the house::

8:38:03 PM Maggie: LA: ::she'd been crouched down at the side of the house as a cat and once Dolly disappears into the house, she changes-standing up:: 

8:39:54 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::sighs, looking out into the distance.  He hadn't meant to get into an argument over Cathy.  Turns back towards the house and stops:: Leyla...

8:40:23 PM Maggie: LA: ::there are tears in her eyes and she looks down:: 

8:42:24 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::takes a step forward and then hesitates:: Leyla, I...

8:43:44 PM Maggie: LA: ::backs up against the house:: 

8:44:45 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I'm sorry

8:46:19 PM Maggie: LA: ::whispers:: Why her?

8:49:55 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::hesitates; despite not wanting to tell her, he's gone over what he might say if he ever did, but now he doesn't have a clue:: I was...i was still in a bad place then; a part of me just wanted...wanted... ::hesitates again::

8:50:37 PM Maggie: LA: To forget we all existed? Well I guess you got your wish. 

8:53:09 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::softly:: I wanted things to be easier...normal...It was just a dream, Leyla

8:54:37 PM Maggie: LA: Yeah and it tore Maeve and Harry apart for some reason. Who was Cathy to you before that?

8:56:30 PM Quantum Catz: EK: She was just a girl from school.  

8:56:59 PM Maggie: LA: ::she frowns:: You chose her for some reason. Because she was normal and pretty?

8:58:06 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::sighs:: She liked me.  I guess what she wanted just got mixed up with what i wanted...

8:59:34 PM Maggie: LA: ::she bites her lip and after a moment she nods::

9:00:19 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I'm sorry

9:00:47 PM Maggie: LA: ::she toes the ground; mutters;: Anything else I should know?  ::her eyes narrow:: The day I was hurt... you were with her. Why?

9:06:03 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::winces, not sure what to say about that since he's been feeling guilty about being with Cathy ever since::

9:06:41 PM Maggie: LA: ::sounds more hurt by his silence:: If she was nothing to you then why were you there?

9:07:51 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I didn't know you were in danger.  I came back as quickly as i could

9:08:40 PM Maggie: LA: That doesn't answer *why* you were there? You dreamed you had a relationship with the girl Eli! ::tears threaten and she turns towards the house, shaking her head::

9:10:35 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Wait, Leyla ::runs forward and reaches for her hand:: 

9:10:51 PM Maggie: LA: ::she stops and turns, glaring at him::

9:15:26 PM Quantum Catz: EK: The guy who attacked you...he took something of hers and left her a letter to give to me, telling me if i didn't go she wouldn't get it back and you'd find out about her ::hesitates:: That's how i ended up hurt that day...

9:16:13 PM Maggie: LA: ::she cringes, pulling away:: Dolly was right. You should have told me.

9:18:02 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I didn't want to hurt you.  I was afraid you'd leave me. 

9:22:29 PM Maggie: LA: ::she looks down at the ground:: I don't want that. ::she shudders, thinking of what happened to the others:: 

9:25:19 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I'm sorry.  

9:26:00 PM Maggie: DK: ::she reaches for his hand again; softly:: Just promise there won't be anymore secrets? No matter what?

9:28:03 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I...I promise

9:28:36 PM Maggie: LA: ::smiles weakly:: Good because if you break it I'll never speak to you again. 

9:30:59 PM Quantum Catz: EK: I won't.  I love you, Kitten.  I really do.  I'd never have really chosen to leave you

9:32:26 PM Maggie: LA: ::she smiles more and wipes at her tears:: 

9:38:01 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::squeezes her hand::

9:46:31 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::after a moment, he hugs her tightly, like he's afraid to let her go::

9:47:13 PM Maggie: LA: ::hugs him back; very softly:: I love you Eli. 

9:49:35 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::softly:: I don't want to lose you.  I was so scared while you were ill

9:49:54 PM Maggie: LA: I'm not going anywhere.
