~ Isaac's place~

8:53:19 PM Julie: LV:  ::suddenly starts crying and fussing::

8:59:23 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::has started working as a waiter at one of the local restaurants and is just getting ready for his shift when she cried; he goes through to see her:: Hey, what's wrong?

9:00:46 PM Julie: LV:  ::is a little pale and cool, curled up, head on her pillow; softly::  Mama.

9:04:35 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs, wondering if it'll ever stop hurting him when she mentions Maeve; reaches out to touch her:: You not feeling well, honey?  Maybe Daddy can help ::uses his powers to see if it brings back her colour::

9:05:18 PM Julie: LV:  ::still looks off; sadly::  Mama owie.

9:09:05 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::ignores this and picks her up:: Daddy has to get ready for work, maybe Uncle Josh wants to play a game - how about that, Livvy?

9:09:58 PM Julie: LV:  ::after a moment, her color comes back, though she's still not happy; whispers::  Da...

9:11:03 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You like playing games with Uncle Josh

9:11:53 PM Julie: :  ::Josh comes in::  You need any help, Isaac?

9:12:55 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: She's upset, i don't know why thought

9:13:32 PM Julie: JH:  ::nods::  I'll take her downstairs; maybe that'll help.

9:14:26 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Thanks, I need to finish getting ready

9:15:31 PM Julie: JH:  ::goes down to play with Livvy, though she's not showing much enthusiasm::

9:21:05 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::comes down the stairs a few minutes later and sits next to Livvy:: Hey, honey, you going to be good while Daddy's out?

9:22:07 PM Julie: LV:  ::looks at Isaac, then starts to bawl, turning pale::

9:24:20 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Livvy, honey, I don't know what's wrong ::hugs her, trying to heal her as well, in case it helps::

9:24:55 PM Julie: LV:  ::whimpers for another minute, crying for her mama, before she seems better again::

9:26:49 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::winces: not only does it hurt when she mentions Maeve but it makes him feel helpless too::

9:27:46 PM Julie: JH:  ::softly::  I'll play with her, Isaac.  You can get to work.

9:30:08 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates and then says:: Daddy'll be home really soon, okay?

9:31:20 PM Julie: LV:  ::at Josh's prompting, waves goodbye to her father::

9:32:17 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::kisses Livvy goodbye and then smiles weakly at Josh:: See you later

9:32:57 PM Julie: JH:  Goodbye.  ::turns his attention back to Livvy::

7:58:45 PM Julie: GU:  ::arrives home after a case away from home; he's dead tired but wanted to make it home before nightfall::

8:02:18 PM Maeve: MV: ::she springs out from her hiding spot the moment he comes into view. She's wearing the charm so she doesn't look at all like herself. She just hopes it's strong enough to block him from sensing who she is::

8:03:02 PM Julie: GU:  ::cries out, stepping back, his hands out in front of him::  What the devil?

8:04:17 PM Maeve: MV: ::she gives him an evil smirk and darts under his arms, aiming to take him down:: Lets say that you got the rotten end of a deal.

8:05:05 PM Julie: GU:  ::completely taken aback, gets the wind knocked out of him::  Who--::pauses; it can't be::

8:06:01 PM Maeve: MV: ::she reaches for his neck:: Kill or be killed? Don't worry. At least this way Kizzie is safe, right?

8:06:38 PM Julie: GU:  ::struggles, trying to throw her off him::  Get away from me!

8:07:20 PM Maeve: MV: ::she gets pushed back but she comes at him again:: Can't. 

8:08:04 PM Julie: GU:  ::in a low voice::  Maeve, stop it!

8:08:45 PM Maeve: MV: ::she smirks:: Can't. Though if you just kill me this whole nightmare will end. Don't worry. I'll fight back. It'll be self-defense. ::goes for his throat again::

8:09:29 PM Julie: GU:  ::gasps::  Are you mad?  ::tries again to push her back::

8:10:09 PM Maeve: MV: ::she's gotten strong and she stays locked on him. She tries kneeing him:: Perhaps. But really it's the only way. 

8:10:38 PM Julie: GU:  ::stifles a yell as Maeve hits him::

8:11:17 PM Maeve: MV: ::she takes his shoulders and tries to shove up him against the wall:: Do it Guy. It's the only way Kizzie will be safe. And Livvy. ::she pulls her hair back:: Go on. Or I'll have to kill you anyway. 

8:12:19 PM Julie: GU:  ::shivers, and reaches out, touching the back of Maeve's neck::

8:12:36 PM Maeve: MV: ::she drops instantly:: 

8:13:19 PM Julie: :  ::the charm instantly stops working, leaving Maeve dead before Guy--again::

8:16:08 PM Julie: GU:  ::curses, getting some rope and a blanket::

8:16:58 PM Julie: :  ::he ties Maeve's body, keeping the blanket at hand; he gags her and shoves her into the hall closet, then wakes her::

8:17:25 PM Maeve: MV: ::she comes to, and her eyes widen. She looks up at Guy like he's betrayed her:: 

8:18:05 PM Julie: GU:  ::whispers::  We'll do something, but...I can't.  It'd be murder.

8:18:41 PM Maeve: MV: ::she grunts through the tag:: It will be if you don't! :::she struggles, panicking:: 

8:19:29 PM Julie: GU:  ::coldly::  Stop that.  You're here 'til late tonight.

8:20:16 PM Maeve: MV: ::she stops, glaring at him. Though the charm is working again so she doesn't look the same:::

8:21:13 PM Julie: GU:  ::in a low voice::  I don't have time to deal with you now.  ::closes the door on her and looks for a note from Kizzie::

8:21:31 PM Maeve: MV: ::she beats against the closet, not wanting him to leave::

8:24:49 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::has left a note saying that she's gone to help Mrs Grayson's daughter - her flowerbed got stamped on by bullies and she was too upset for kizzie to say no::

8:25:25 PM Julie: GU:  ::sighs; stops by the closet::  Quiet down. 'll figure something out.

8:25:39 PM Maeve: MV: ::she groans and bangs again::

8:26:16 PM Julie: GU:  There's no guarantee your daughter would be safe if I did it!

8:26:39 PM Maeve: MV: ::through the gag:: It's the best chance I've got! 

8:27:49 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::opens the door, sighing as she gets in the house.  Helping the girl with her flowers tired her out more than she thought it would::

8:27:57 PM Julie: GU:  And then I'm on the gallows myself!  ::slams the door, not hearing Kizzie come in::

8:28:14 PM Maeve: MV: ::she yelps, leaning back::

8:30:11 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::hesitates:: Guy?

8:30:31 PM Julie: GU:  ::turns back, rather pale::  Welcome...welcome home.

8:30:42 PM Maeve: MV: ::she beats on the closet:: 

8:30:56 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: What... ::looks towards the closet:: What's going on?

8:31:59 PM Julie: GU:  ::winces::  Please trust me, Kizzie.

8:32:24 PM Maeve: MV: ::beats harder:: 

8:33:17 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: You...you said something about the gallows... ::is looking rather pale herself::

8:34:04 PM Julie: GU:  ::swallows hard; leans close to Kizzie::  If...if I tell you...we may have to leave the island.

8:34:22 PM Maeve: MV: ::through the gag:: No you won't! Just kill me!

8:35:18 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::backs up a step:: What's going on, Guy?

8:36:03 PM Julie: GU:  ::leans even closer to Kizzie; breathes::  It's Maeve.

8:38:55 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: Maeve? But she's...

8:39:08 PM Maeve: MV: Guy you're going to get us all killed!

8:39:33 PM Julie: GU:  ::shakes his head; after a moment, goes back to the closet and opens it::  Look away, Kizzie.

8:40:17 PM Maeve: MV: ::her eyes widen and a flash of fear crosses her face before she masks it. She calms down considerably:: 

8:40:25 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: I don't understand this - how is she alive? why do you have her locked in our closet?

8:41:16 PM Julie: GU:  ::winces::  The less you know the better, but I'll explain later if you want.  You must trust me, though.  ::the figure in the closet doesn't look like Maeve::

8:41:58 PM Maeve:  MV: ::she looks away, waiting:: Hurry. 

8:42:13 PM Julie: GU:  ::looks back to make sure Kizzie's turned away::

8:45:41 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::is still looking at him but she feels the baby kick and her hand goes to her stomach; she blinks back confused tears and turns to go towards the kitchen::

8:46:36 PM Julie: GU:  ::kills Maeve again, only so he can better gag and bind her; she's making too much noise::

8:46:56 PM Maeve: MV: ::goes limp again, morphing back to herself:: 

8:51:57 PM Julie: GU:  ::once he's sure Maeve isn't going to make any noise, he releases her; whispers::  We'll save you!

8:53:27 PM Maeve: MV: ::she wakes up again and realizing she's still alive, she tears up::

8:56:41 PM Julie: GU:  ::closes the door and goes towards the kitchen; whispers::  Kizzie...

8:57:10 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::appears in the living room with Toby::

8:57:28 PM Julie: GU:  ::looks back with wide eyes::  What are you doing here?

8:58:08 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::is in the kitchen, leaning forward against the counter; she's been feeling rather emotional while pregnant and is now struggling to stop herself crying; ignoring Guy::

8:59:22 PM Julie: TY:  ::blinks::  You sent us a note.

8:59:41 PM Maeve: MV: ::knocks against something in the closet::

8:59:53 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Kinda odd note really ::looks over at the closet::

9:00:15 PM Julie: GU:  ::swallows, shaking his head::  I...did no such thing.  But...

9:00:42 PM Maeve: MV: ::she knocks again:: 

9:04:45 PM Julie: TY:  ::frowns::  What's that noise?

9:05:21 PM Maeve: MV: ::knocks something over on herself and she yelps through the gag::

9:06:32 PM Julie: GU:  ::winces; softly::  Are you two up to helping an old friend?

9:07:00 PM Quantum Catz: BM: What are you talking about?  Do you have someone locked up in there?

9:07:53 PM Julie: GU:  ::suddenly quite afraid that he and Kizzie will be leaving the island after all; after a moment, opens the closet, blocking it with his back while he removes the charm::

9:08:22 PM Maeve: MV: ::she glares at him, still angry at him for not cooperating::

9:08:53 PM Julie: TY:  ::stares when Guy steps back::  Have you...had her all this time?

9:10:11 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Maeve...

9:10:27 PM Julie: GU:  ::shakes his head::  She walked in--told me to kill her.

9:10:40 PM Maeve: MV: ::she looks at them briefly then at the floor:: 

9:10:56 PM Julie: GU:  ::goes back to try to get Kizzie::

9:11:59 PM Maeve: MV: ::she moves, struggling to get out:: 

9:12:31 PM Julie: TY:  ::melts through the gag::

9:13:17 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::is still leaning against the counter::

9:13:38 PM Maeve: MV: It's better for Livvy if he does it Toby. 

9:14:01 PM Julie: GU:  ::puts his arm around Kizzie; whispers::  I'm so sorry.  They told me they'd kill you if anyone found out.

9:14:21 PM Julie: TY:  But what about you?

9:14:50 PM Maeve: MV: ::she snorts and glances at Becky:: Lets just say Becky was right after all. You shoulda left me dead. 

9:15:09 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces:: Where have you been?

9:15:36 PM Maeve: MV: ::shakes her head:: It doesn't matter. Isaac isn't to know a thing and you're to get Guy to kill me then get rid of the evidence. 

9:16:50 PM Julie: TY:  We can't do that, Maeve.

9:17:23 PM Maeve: MV: ::she closes her eyes, looking frustrated:: Look I'm going to end up dead one way or another. It'll hurt Livvy less if Guy does it. And if I'm dead Kizzie is safe. Just do it! 

9:17:24 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::is still shaking a bit:: Just...just give me a minute.  Having my body full of crazy hormones doesn't make it easy to deal with coming home to your husband locking your dead friend in a closet

9:18:20 PM Julie: TY:  ::looks at Becky::

9:18:38 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Maybe...maybe we could just take you somewhere

9:19:01 PM Julie: GU:  ::nods, pulling her closer::  I'm so sorry, Rosebud.

9:19:12 PM Maeve: MV: ::she tears up:: I don't want to live Becky!! Not alone..somewhere... no! And no outcome leads me back to Isaac. Too much has happened.

9:20:04 PM Julie: TY:  ::coldly::  Change your face, get him to love you...

9:21:03 PM Maeve: MV: ::snaps:: No! It endangers them too much. I'm not going back. ::she smirks:: You'll be doing the world a favor anyway. Getting rid of a killer who causes people to *spontaneously combust*. 

9:22:24 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::sighs and pulls away, rubbing at her aching back:: What are you going to do now? What happens?

9:22:40 PM Quantum Catz: BM: That was you?

9:23:17 PM Maeve: MV: ::smiles and then looks over her shoulder, yelling:: And Guy was to be 16 though I'm sure they wanted him to kill me instead! 

9:23:18 PM Julie: GU:  I can't kill her.  ::pauses, swallowing::  Unless...

9:25:03 PM Maeve: MV: ::she struggles with the ropes and looks back at Toby helplessly:: Will you let me out of here please? 

9:25:12 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::winces at Maeve's words:: What 'they'?  Who did this?

9:26:15 PM Julie: GU:  ::shivers::  The government made me set it all up.

9:27:35 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: The government?

9:28:09 PM Julie: TY:  ::shakes his head::  You don't have to do it anymore.

9:28:27 PM Julie: GU:  ::nods::  We'd have to leave.  Unless...unless I killed her.

9:28:49 PM Maeve: MV: I know! If you'd just kill me already! ::struggles against the ropes:: 

9:29:16 PM Julie: TY:  You know we can't!

9:29:53 PM Maeve: MV: But you have to! Livvy's life depends on it Toby! There is *no* way out of this. And after all I've done... ::she shakes her head:: I can't go back. 

9:31:26 PM Quantum Catz: BM: You're being selfish - you can't just expect Guy to take your life

9:31:49 PM Maeve: MV: He has to if he wants his wife to live. 

9:33:18 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: You...you can't just kill her...can't you? ::sheasks it uncertainly, like she's not really sure she knows what he's capable of now::

9:33:51 PM Julie: GU:  ::looks down::  No.  Unless you wanted me to.

9:35:01 PM Maeve: MV: ::when they don't say anything her gaze gets colder as it settles on Toby:: Then start making me a corpse. ::glances at Becky:: Might wanna rest up. The states is quite a distance. 

9:35:43 PM Julie: TY:  ::swallows, taking the blanket::

9:36:31 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: Of course i don't want you to kill her!

9:37:15 PM Julie: GU:  ::softly::  Sorry.  We'll figure it out, then.

9:38:25 PM Quantum Catz: BM: You want me to take you away now?

9:38:53 PM Maeve: MV: ::she shakes her head:: Toby needs a canvas so to speak and they might need proof...scars and such.

9:39:33 PM Julie: TY:  ::winces; kneels and gets to work::

9:41:13 PM Maeve: MV: ::frustrated:: And since we've established that I am not going to die will someone untie me?

9:41:56 PM Julie: TY:  ::melts through Maeve's ropes::

9:42:20 PM Julie: GU:  ::leans close to Kizzie; whispers::  Do you want to go upstairs to rest?

9:42:20 PM Maeve: MV: ::pushes them off of her, getting up to pace:: 

9:42:21 PM Quantum Catz: BM: What about Isaac?

9:42:28 PM Maeve: MV: What about him?

9:43:16 PM Quantum Catz: BM: You want himto spend the rest of his life thinking your dead? You want your daughter to think that?

9:43:44 PM Maeve: MV: ::doesn't even flinch:: What good will it be for them to know? I can't stay.

9:43:58 PM Julie: TY:  I'd want to know.

9:44:11 PM Maeve: MV: Well I don't want him to know. *Anything*. 

9:45:40 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: I was actually planning on making dinner but i guess this isn't really the time for cooking

9:46:03 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Maybe he'd want to go with you

9:46:39 PM Maeve: MV: ::she smirks:: Oh yes the others would *love* that. Besides, once he's learned of what I've done he'll be more than happy to forget me. Just leave it be. 

9:47:44 PM Quantum Catz: BM: You don't know that

9:47:54 PM Julie: GU:  ::shakes his head::  You can act like everything's normal.

9:48:01 PM Maeve: MV: Doesn't matter. I can't put him through it. 

9:48:43 PM Julie: TY:  ::quietly::  Maybe it's not your choice.

9:49:08 PM Maeve: MV: ::glares:: Nothing seems to be my choice these days. People keep making them for me. 

9:51:50 PM Quantum Catz: BM:::sighs:: Do you have to leave the island? Tobycould make you look different...if theres a body,there's no reason for them to look for you

9:52:22 PM Maeve: MV: ::smirks:: But someone stepping up to replace me so soon would arouse suspicions. Besides, I told you I am not taking the risk. 

9:52:22 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::softly::No, i can't

9:52:54 PM Julie: GU:  ::sighs::  I didn't want to hide this from you.

9:53:54 PM Quantum Catz: BM: But if you at least stay on the island...do want to never see your daughter again? I couldn't leave Ben, not if there was a way i could stay

9:54:30 PM Julie: TY:  ::heads to the door::  I'm getting him--before Guy stops me.

9:54:52 PM Maeve: MV: ::lunges for his arm:: Toby don't you dare! 

9:55:54 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::moves to sit down, gasping a bit wen the baby kicks again::

9:56:19 PM Julie: TY:  ::pushes Maeve away, and keeps walking::

9:56:37 PM Julie: GU:  ::tries to help Kizzie sit, looking really worried::  Are you okay?

9:56:46 PM Maeve: MV: ::desperately:: Toby! ::though she doesn't dare get near the door::

9:58:38 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: He's just been kicking a lot today

9:59:19 PM Julie: GU: ::looks at Kizzie's stomach, smiling a little despite their current troubles::

9:59:34 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::is just walking towards the restaurant::

10:00:09 PM Maeve: MV: ::hides behind the door:: Toby don't. 

10:00:18 PM Julie: TY:  ::comes out of Guy's house and sees Isaac; eyes go wide::  Isaac!  Hey!

10:00:40 PM Maeve: MV: ::she goes pale and looks around, panicking and figuring to hide:: 

10:00:51 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I'm late for work, Toby - i need to get going

10:01:12 PM Julie: TY:  Please--it's important.

10:01:24 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: You might smiles - it feels like he's trying to break through my stomach

10:02:00 PM Julie: GU:  ::winces::  I'm sorry--should I fetch...::pauses as he understands the shout he just heard::

10:02:01 PM Maeve: MV: ::heads for the stairs:: 

10:03:00 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates:: What is it? Is Kizzie okay?

10:03:56 PM Julie: TY:  Please hurry.

10:04:37 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Maeve - just talk to him

10:04:53 PM Maeve: MV: ::weakly:: I'm not ready to talk to him. I was suppose to be dead by now. 

10:05:00 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::heads towards the house::

10:05:19 PM Julie: TY:  ::moves back into the house, rather anxious::

10:06:01 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: Mabe you should go sort out what's happening with Maeve...i'll be fine

10:06:25 PM Julie: GU:  ::kisses her; whispers::  I hope you can forgive me for this.

10:06:36 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Seriously, Toby, what's going on?

10:06:59 PM Julie: TY:  ::waits until the door is closed; softly::  You might want to sit down.

10:07:27 PM Maeve: MV: ::stiffens when she hears him::

10:08:05 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ;;looks bcack down the stairs:: It doesn't look like Toby's giving you a choice

10:08:38 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Sit down? What?

10:08:39 PM Maeve: MV: ::she closes her eyes and takes a deep breath then somehow manages to walk back down:: 

10:09:09 PM Julie: TY:  ::looks towards the stairs::

10:09:51 PM Maeve: MV: ::she steps down and her eyes immediately find Isaac's:: 

10:10:43 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::pales when he sees Maeve:: It...isn't possible

10:11:17 PM Maeve: MV: ::she cringes and moves towards him:: Toby's right. Maybe you should take a seat. ::casts Toby a glare:: 

10:12:33 PM Julie: TY:  ::glares back at Maeve::  He had a right to know!

10:12:42 PM Quantum Catz: IS: What's going on? ::he looks at Toby as well as Maeve when he asks::

10:13:58 PM Maeve: MV: ::she sighs heavily:: A lot. The only thing important right now is that Toby *should* be making a body and that I *need* to get going.

10:14:32 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::repeeats:: Get going?

10:15:00 PM Maeve: MV: ::softly:: I can't stay Isaac. Everyone on this island wants me dead and that is only putting Livvy in more danger. 

10:15:53 PM Quantum Catz: IS: She...she was asking for you before i left the house

10:16:16 PM Maeve: MV: ::she winces and looks away:: She'll forget...soon... 

10:17:50 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I saw you dead...you were just lying there

10:18:06 PM Maeve: MV: ::she nods:: They forced Guy to do it. 

10:18:55 PM Quantum Catz: IS: They?

10:19:49 PM Maeve: MV: ::she sighs:: Yes. They. The Queen's men. I've been working for her Isaac. You know those 15 cases of spontaneous combustion? All me. Ok? ::folds her arms and looks away again::

10:21:08 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks rather shell-shocked:: You're alive and you'vebeen going off and killing people?

10:21:30 PM Julie: TY:  ::bows his head::  I'm sorry, Isaac.  But I thought...

10:21:35 PM Maeve: MV: ::smirks:: Yes Isaac. I got bored of the domestic life after all. 

10:22:20 PM Quantum Catz: IS: How can you joke about something like that?

10:23:05 PM Maeve: MV: What do you want me to say Isaac? I can't go and change what happened. It's not like I *wanted* to leave in the first place!

10:25:10 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You could say it like you cared that they were dead ::winces:: So why am i here? So you can tell me that you're alive but your never coming back?

10:25:29 PM Julie: TY:  I...can change her looks.

10:25:44 PM Maeve: MV: I wasn't planning to drag you into it at all. 

10:26:54 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::weakly:: That's nice of you, so we could just keep thinking you were dead and Livvy can grow up never knowing her mother

10:27:49 PM Maeve: MV: ::she looks away, shaking her head:: I don't see how I can even stay. Even if you would want me to... ::she shrugs:: 

10:31:21 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Toby just offered you an option. ::his voice cracks as he says:: Do you know how many times i've felt completely helpless because all she's done is sit and scream for you?  

You probably do, because they were probably all times when you got hurt and she wanted to help you

10:31:54 PM Julie: GU:  ::is watching the scene, but doesn't know what to say::

10:33:13 PM Maeve: MV: ::her mask of indifference wavers a bit:: Yeah. Well I'm trying to protect her now Isaac and the only way *I* know to do that for sure is for Guy to kill me. Then she'll never hurt again. No one will. 

10:33:27 PM Julie: GU:  And I'm not doing it.

10:34:11 PM Maeve: MV: ::she turns away, running a hand through her black hair:: And Toby *could* change me and something would happen and someone would discover my identity. Then we'll be back here again. 

10:39:51 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You know, i never get the options you do.  I never get to think 'okay, i'm done, it's too hard, i'm walking away, i'd rather be dead'.  I have to just get up every morning and make myself keep going, make it all work so that everyone else can be okay. You're needed here - and if we aren't even important enough for you to try, then maybe it's better if you leave now

10:43:36 PM Maeve: MV: ::she flinches:: Maybe... maybe it is. ::she rubs at her head again, fighting tears:: Do you really want to take the chance Isaac? Do you want to go through all this again? Because I can't. I can't lose all you again. I can't take it. It hurts too much. 

10:43:59 PM Julie: TY:  ::winces::

10:45:58 PM Quantum Catz: IS: If there was a body and you looked different...why would they look?

10:47:09 PM Maeve: MV: I don't know Isaac! ::she sinks down onto the couch, hanging her head:: Something always seems to happen... why do you even want me? I don't even want myself! 

10:49:53 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates and then takes a deep breath::I'm not...i'm not really sure what i want...i just don't want you to leave

10:51:08 PM Maeve: MV: Oh great. ::there's tears in her eyes when she looks up at Toby:: This is why I didn't want to tell him. I'll stick around only to find out he can't handle what I've done.  

10:51:26 PM Julie: TY:  He wants you here, Maeve.

10:52:56 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: Even if i couldn't - Livvy needs you, all she;s wanted is you

10:53:40 PM Maeve: MV: ::she flinches again, briefly looking more hurt before she masks it:: 

10:57:23 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::takes a step towards her, hand reaching out, but then hesitates and stops::

10:58:53 PM Maeve: MV: ::sadly:: It's all right Isaac. Deep down, I knew it'd end up more this way than... ::she shakes her head and gets up; her voice breaks:: You need to hurry up Toby. ::she turns towards the stairs:: 

10:59:52 PM Julie: TY:  ::frowns::

11:01:13 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve, I... ::all he wants to do is hold her, but at the same time, he can't shake the image of her killing those people, or stop hearing the mayor;s words about Livvy::

11:01:59 PM Julie: GU:  ::clears his throat::  Isaac, she did what she had to do to protect her daughter.

11:03:01 PM Maeve: MV: ::she shakes her head; brokenly:: I can't do this right now. :::she just needs a place to cry. Alone.:: 

11:05:59 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Im not...this is too much to throw on me and expect me just to accept it! Maeve, i'm sorry...you don' know how muc ive missed you..i just...

11:07:00 PM Maeve: MV: ::softly:: Yeah I know. Well.. I'll be here for a while I guess. ::heads up the stairs:: 

11:07:54 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows after her; softly:: He just needs time

11:08:14 PM Maeve: MV: I don't have time Becky. ::her voice hitches:: 

11:08:30 PM Julie: TY:  ::softly::  I...I have some work to do, Isaac...

11:08:52 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks over at Toby, rather helplessly, not sure what to say; lost in his own thoughts about Maeve and his family::

11:09:32 PM Quantum Catz: BM: You could stay, here in Marquis with a different face - give him time

11:10:11 PM Julie: GU:  ::to Isaac; softly::  No one can know about Maeve.  I'm...sorry.  But they threatened to kill Kizzie.

11:10:24 PM Maeve: MV: ::shakes her head:: He won't...won't get over it Becky! I knew it.... 

11:11:21 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Who would i tell? It would only hurt them all over again if she left

11:12:08 PM Quantum Catz: BM: You think he would kill people if he was in that situation? I'm willing to bet he would - he stabbed that man to protect you

11:12:18 PM Julie: GU:  ::nods; softly::  Still, I'm sorry for this.

11:13:00 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves to sit down on a chair:: I'm supposed to be at work....how can i go to work now?

11:13:23 PM Maeve: MV: ::she covers her face with her hands, trembling::  

11:14:20 PM Julie: GU:  ::after a moment::  I know Mr. Grey.  He'll understand if something came up.  Like if Kizzie was ill.

11:14:43 PM Quantum Catz: BM: You didn't exacty break it to him gently, give him a chance

11:16:02 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: Thanks

11:16:16 PM Maeve: MV: There is no gently. ::she draws in a breath then another, trembling still:: Just a whole lot of nothing...

11:16:48 PM Julie: GU:  ::smiles sadly::  I don't think you need to be thanking me for anything.

11:18:09 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I can hardly believe this, i feel like i'm goin mad

11:18:58 PM Julie: TY:  ::quietly::  I'm sorry if you wish you didn't know.  ::heads off to start his work::

11:21:05 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I don't know what i wish.

11:22:37 PM Maeve: MV: ::she slips into a room and slowly dissolves into gut wrenching sobs.::

11:22:45 PM Julie: GU:  ::winces::  She wanted to die...she needs you.

11:25:16 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::starts to shake, blinking back tears::

11:25:43 PM Julie: GU:  ::winces again; whispers::  I'm sorry.

11:25:48 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows her and hugs her, not sure what else to do::

11:27:36 PM Maeve: MV: ::she latches on, sobbing so hard she's shaking from months of pent up anguish.:: 

11:29:55 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::after a few minutes, he gets up and runs up the stairs, stopping when he sees Maeve and Becky::

11:32:06 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::sees Isaac and pulls away::

11:32:35 PM Maeve: MV: ::she cries out, trying to hold on tighter:: PLease dont leave me alone... 

11:33:56 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Maeve, Isaac's here...

11:34:14 PM Maeve: MV: ::she stiffens but is afraid to turn::

11:35:14 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I...i love you, Maeve

11:36:18 PM Maeve: MV: ::she whimpers, pulling away from Becky: B-but  I guess...that's not enough? Is it? ::she wraps her arms around herself, shaking:: It hasn't been a picnic for me either Isaac. 

11:37:13 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::teleports downstairs when maeve lets go, to give them time alone::

11:37:46 PM Julie: TY:  ::is away from the living room, making a rough form of Maeve's body::

11:38:52 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I know that!  You can't expect me to just take all this in and accept it in one go! ::there are tears in his eyes too and he can't help but reache for her::

11:40:55 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::goes to find toby, wincing a bit when she sees the body::

11:41:30 PM Julie: TY:  ::looks up at Becky; softly::  I...have to do it, right?

11:42:10 PM Maeve: MV: ::she leans into him, crying:: Where does that leave me? 

11:42:25 PM Quantum Catz: BM: It's the best way to stop them looking for her

11:42:48 PM Julie: TY:  ::nods::  You sure it'll work?

11:43:49 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You were planning on leaving us all again anyway, what does it matter how i feel? I wasn't even going to get a say in it

11:44:22 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs::You can't be sure of anything with *Maeve

11:45:09 PM Julie: TY:  ::has to change the hair color from red to black; shakes his head::  You sure they won't go after us?  After Ben?

11:45:10 PM Maeve: MV: I planned to be dead, and free of it all. And now I'm not... I'm just here. 

11:47:42 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: The state she's in right now, i think she'd do anything to make sure no one else gets hurt

11:48:15 PM Julie: TY:  Whatever happens...you could always move us, right?

11:48:43 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Running away, leaving te rest of us just to suffer through it ::though he hugs her tightly as he says it, the image of her dead springing to mind::

11:50:20 PM Maeve: MV: I thought you'd be safer without me. That everyone would be better off if I were gone. But I'm not.  I'm not and now all that's left is... more loneliness. 

11:50:56 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::nods:: If we have to 

11:51:45 PM Quantum Catz: IS: We need you

11:52:12 PM Julie: TY:  ::nods, looking a bit more relaxed, but he pauses, cringing; shakes his head::

11:52:43 PM Maeve: MV: ::she hides her face in his shoulder, crying more:: I need you all more.... 

11:53:41 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::moves to kneel next to him, hugging him::

11:54:14 PM Quantum Catz: IS: We'll work something out

11:54:50 PM Julie: TY:  ::moves to put an arm around her; whispers::  Whatever happens, I'll keep you and Ben safe.

11:55:45 PM Maeve: MV: ::she wraps her arms around him, holding him tight, not wanting to let go; whispers:: I love you... and LIvvy, so much. If I lost the two of you again... 

11:56:56 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Maybe this'll be it, maybe after this everything'll be okay and Maeve gets to just be happy

11:57:47 PM Quantum Catz: IS:  I don't know if i can lose you again...it was so hard...

11:58:11 PM Julie: TY:  ::smirks::  Doesn't seem too likely.

11:58:45 PM Maeve: MV: ::she shudders then draws in another shaky breath:: 

12:00:27 AM Quantum Catz: BM: I'm not sure if Isaac can stand by her through much more, it's not just him who gets hurt when something happens to her. His family have gone through so much already

12:01:00 AM Julie: TY:  ::nods::  It...it hurt us; I can't imagine how they felt.

12:02:30 AM Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates:: I'm not...i'm not sure if we should tell the others yet

12:03:20 AM Maeve: MV: ::she stiffens; sounding resigned:: That's fine.... I guess. Whatever's best. 

12:03:29 AM Quantum Catz: BM: That horrible mayor hasn't helped anything

12:03:55 AM Julie: TY:  ::nods::  I've half a mind to...::shakes his head::  Guess we're doing enough illegal stuff already.

12:04:47 AM Quantum Catz: IS: I just...Josh was...i'm not sure he's ready to deal with something like this, not until we're sure your safe and it's okay for you to stay

12:05:32 AM Maeve: MV: What if... what if it's not okay Isaac? I don't want to leave. I never wanted to leave.... are you going to convince Guy to kill me then? 

12:06:07 AM Quantum Catz: BM: ::;laughs weakly:: I could teleport him somewhere far far away

12:06:23 AM Julie: TY:  ::laughs::  Is the deputy mayor any better?

12:07:53 AM Quantum Catz: IS: ::winces:: I don't know.  I can't ask someone to kill you.  We just have to...hope it is okay

12:08:26 AM Quantum Catz: BM: I could teleport him too if he's not but people might start noticing a pattern

12:09:03 AM Julie: TY:  ::can't help a laugh::  I COULD change the mayor's hair color or something, at least.  Maybe turn his skin purple.

12:10:03 AM Quantum Catz: BM: All that might do is put him in a bad mood

12:10:12 AM Julie: TY:  How is that different from usual?

12:10:45 AM Maeve: MV: ::she looks up at him, sadly. Just looking:: 

12:10:51 AM Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: Not very, i suppose

12:11:52 AM Julie: TY:  ::looks down at the body; softly::  I'll need to see her for the detail work.

12:12:32 AM Quantum Catz: BM: We should give them another minute or two...they needed to talk

12:12:56 AM Julie: TY:  ::nods::  Do you think they'll be okay?

12:14:30 AM Quantum Catz: BM: I don't know...i guess it's not a very easy thing to digest, i'm finding it hard to believe she killed all those people

12:15:13 AM Julie: TY:  ::sighs::  You do what you have to do...I've killed a lot of people.  Mostly scientists, of course.

12:19:57 AM Quantum Catz: BM: I know, it's just... ::shrugs:: This is a different time, it's not supposed to be so bad here.  And this island...it was supposed to be a safe haven but it never seems to be

12:20:43 AM Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: we should go downstairs, start sorting everything with Toby

12:21:07 AM Julie: TY:  Maybe we need to go back and live with the Celts or something.

12:21:38 AM Maeve: MV: ::her gaze drops and she pulls away, distancing herself emotionally as well. Things weren't going to end right. THey couldn't. She gets up, wiping at the tears still on her face::

12:23:46 AM Quantum Catz: BM: ::laughs:: I think they killed each other a lot too, i don't suppose it's something we can escape

12:24:20 AM Julie: TY:  An island, then.  ::smirks::  A better one.

12:25:18 AM Quantum Catz: IS: ::takes a deep breath as he too stands up; a part of him can't help but want to distance himself too, afraid that this can't last and she'll be gone again::

12:25:58 AM Maeve: MV: ::stiffly moves downstairs, wishing Guy had just killed her and saved her all the pain:: 

12:26:32 AM Quantum Catz: BM: :;smiles:: A small isolated one maybe - Ben might get a bit bored though

12:27:05 AM Julie: TY:  ::smiles; looks up when Maeve comes down; softly::  Hi.

12:27:50 AM Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up at isaac and maeve, concern showing::

12:27:51 AM Maeve: MV: ::doesn't even smirk.:: Should I just lose the shirt? 

12:28:10 AM Julie: TY:  ::winces::  Do they know your scars?

12:28:36 AM Maeve: MV: They stitched me up. I don't know what they'll do. I'm sure they know we're friends.

12:29:20 AM Julie: TY:  ::exhales::  Then...you'd better.

12:30:37 AM Maeve: MV: ::she unbuttons the shirt, not even caring Toby is there. She's been poked and prodded by enough men. What's one more? There's a long gash from her collarbone down her chest. Three on her arms and one stretching across her stomach.::

12:31:10 AM Julie: TY:  ::winces, but forms the scars onto the lifeless body before him; quietly::  I should...fix those on you.  When I change you.

12:31:43 AM Quantum Catz: IS: ::winces when he sees them and looks away, unable to deal with it::

12:32:01 AM Maeve: MV: ::she just nods:: Don't forget the bullet wound on the side. I'm sure they saw it when sewing me up. 

12:32:18 AM Julie: TY:  ::nods, just working::

12:32:58 AM Quantum Catz: BM: ::keeps a hand on Toby's back, knowing it cn't be easy for him to do this::

12:32:58 AM Maeve: MV: ::she looks at Isaac and sighs. She reaches down to grasp his hand:: I'm sorry. 

12:33:34 AM Julie: TY:  ::when he finishes the scars::  I'll...still need to see your face.

12:33:58 AM Quantum Catz: IS: ::squeezes her hand, looking pale::

12:34:37 AM Maeve: MV: ::she pulls away and quickly buttons the shirt.:: Ok. ::kneels down next to the body, facing Toby. She doesn't even look at it:: 

12:35:14 AM Julie: TY:  ::finishes the face in a few minutes; leans against his wife, exhausted::

12:35:42 AM Maeve: MV: ::whispers:: Thanks Toby. Maybe the two of you should go for now? 

12:36:24 AM Julie: TY:  ::gets up::  We can talk to Guy, at least.

3:26:47 PM Maeve: MV: ::she grimaces, moving into the other room:: Guy? Where's that necklace you took from me? We should put it on...the body. 

3:27:22 PM Julie: GU:  ::looking very tired, hands it over::

3:28:29 PM Maeve: MV: ::she takes it back to the body. Her hands shake as she puts it over the head. When that's on, she pauses, then reaches behind her neck to undo the chain holding her wedding bands:: 

3:31:50 PM Julie: TY:  ::softly::  I can remake them.

3:36:13 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::a sad look crosses his eyes at the sight of the rings::

3:37:27 PM Maeve: MV: ::she shakes her head; whispers:: I can't be seen with them. 

3:38:20 PM Julie: TY:  What if I form duplicates, and then make these into something else?

3:39:56 PM Maeve: MV: ::she sits back, holding the rings in her hands, staring at them.:: I guess? ::she looks back at her husband, not sure what he wants:: 

3:42:00 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: It's better than just giving them up ::looks away, wincing as he remembers their wedding day, and how simple it seemed then::

3:42:26 PM Maeve: MV: ::she hands them to Toby:: 

3:44:32 PM Julie: TY:  :  ::looks at the rings for a little while, and then forms them into a gold necklace with a little cross charm::

3:46:30 PM Maeve: MV: ::her eyes widen then she offers Toby a weak smile:: Thanks. Do you think you can make a set of rings for the body though? Just in case... 

3:47:05 PM Julie: TY:  ::holds out his other hand; he already did so

3:47:07 PM Julie: ::

3:48:02 PM Maeve: MV: ::she nods and takes the new rings and slips the chain around the body:: Well. Now I guess we just wait for David to show up.

3:48:21 PM Julie: GU:  Should you...get somewhere, Maeve?

3:49:58 PM Maeve: MV: ;::she hesitates then nods:: If you think you can handle it? You might just want to tell him the body didn't change back to look like me until it was too late. Or something more clever... ::shrugs::

3:51:11 PM Julie: GU:  ::winces::  And you really think he'll be coming here?

3:51:57 PM Maeve: MV: ::she nods:: He'll be coming to see what is taking so long. He might take the body back as proof? I don't know.

3:52:53 PM Julie: GU:  Then the lot of you had better hide.  ::folds his arms, rather worried for his wife::

3:54:42 PM Maeve: MV: Toby and Isaac might as well walk out the door. They've likely already been seen. Which could pose a problem. ;:smirks:: 

3:55:23 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Maeve:: I can take you somewhere

3:55:51 PM Julie: GU:  ::heads to the front door to wait::

3:56:11 PM Maeve: MV: ::she nods, standing up:: Ok. I don't know where though. A cave somewhere on a dark hill? 

3:57:15 PM Julie: :  ::there's a sharp rap on the door::

3:59:59 PM Maeve: MV: ::she pales and grabs Kizzie's arm:: Get upstairs. 

4:00:45 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::reaches for Maeve's hand:: You should worry more about yoruself, let's get out of here

4:02:06 PM Julie: :  ::the front door creaks open and a man only Maeve recognizes as David--in one of his disguises--comes in::

4:03:38 PM Maeve: MV: ::bites back a curse and takes Becky's hand, trying to keep her head ducked so David won't see her:: 

4:03:54 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::teleports them out into the forest::

4:04:45 PM Julie: DV:  ::looks a bit surprised, perhaps even disappointed, to see Guy::

4:05:13 PM Julie: GU:  ::narrows his eyes::  Good day, sir.  Though it's poor manners to break into a man's house.

4:09:16 PM Julie: DV:  ::shakes his head::  Official business, Mr. Stowe.  I've been advised of a murder here.

4:09:43 PM Julie: GU:  ::his face loses a little color; he shakes his head::

4:12:18 PM Julie: DV:  ::coldly::  Then you won't mind if I take a look around?  ::flashes a badge for good measure::

4:13:59 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: What right do you have to come barging into our house? You're not one of the Marquis guards.  I;m several months pregnant - who on earth would think we were killing people in our spare time?

4:14:46 PM Julie: DV:  We've heard reports.  ::looks coldly at Kizzie::  Don't you know what your husband can do?

4:15:51 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: Reports from who? I know at least one of our next door neighbours isn't even in town right now

4:16:29 PM Julie: DV:  ::narrows his eyes::  Do you know what your husband is capable of?  Or has he not seen fit to tell you?

4:16:41 PM Julie: GU:  I'll thank you to stop browbeating my wife, *sir*.

4:18:44 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: I know that what he's capable of would mean that no one would hear a thing to report.  And i don't like people in my house that i don't trust ::a tree branch bangs against one of the windows as if to reinforce her words::

4:19:08 PM Julie: DV:  ::narrows his eyes::  Surrender the body and I'll leave.

4:20:12 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: Who are you?

4:20:54 PM Julie: DV:  ::looks a bit surprised; lowers his voice::  I'm with the island guard.  What have you seen, Mr. Kindall?

4:22:04 PM Quantum Catz: IS: How are you so sure there's a body here?

4:22:50 PM Julie: DV:  I have sources, sir.  ::moves past Isaac and looks around::

4:24:04 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: You put her through so much...and you don't even care, do you?  You just want to clean up the mess

4:24:50 PM Julie: DV:  ::slowly turns back to Isaac; quietly::  It's my neck on the line, even more than hers was.

4:25:29 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::leans against a tree; softly:: I don't think he saw you, hopefully he'll believe Toby's body

4:26:30 PM Maeve: MV: ::she sits down, looking pale:: David knows all of you. I'm not sure what he'll believe. 

4:27:26 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You sent her here - you gave her thr choice of dying or killing her friend. What kind of man are you? What kind of people really run this island?

4:28:08 PM Julie: DV:  ::quietly::  So what happened?

4:28:27 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Even if he realises Toby's involved, he's never made his ability to make picture-perfect bodies very well known

4:30:49 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: She's gone

4:30:50 PM Maeve: MV: ::she nods:: Maybe.  ::runs her hands over her arms for a moment then gets up:: Well thanks for the ride out of town. I guess I'd better go find somewhere...to stay. 

4:31:16 PM Julie: DV:  ::in an even lower voice::  I thought I saw a friend of hers come in...

4:31:17 PM Quantum Catz: BM: You need Toby to change your appearance.  If someone sees you...

4:32:37 PM Maeve: MV: ::winces:: Toby is likely tired though. I need to go somewhere. I can't stay here all night.

4:35:19 PM Quantum Catz: BM: And what about after tonight? Are you still going to leave?

4:35:29 PM Quantum Catz: IS: What friend?

4:36:09 PM Julie: DV:  Mr. Hamilton.

4:36:46 PM Maeve: MV: ::she hesitates:: No. At least not right away. I guess. ::she shrugs, looking torn:: 

4:43:07 PM Julie: GU:  ::in a low voice::  When I found out who she was, I sent for help.

4:43:17 PM Julie: DV:  ::coldly::  We know you could have raised her.

4:46:03 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Hiding won't make things any better between you

4:46:31 PM Maeve: MV: ::quietly:: No but it will make everyone safer. 

4:46:59 PM Julie: GU:  ::shrugs::  I don't know.  It just didn't work.

4:47:10 PM Julie: DV:  ::in a low voice::  I think you faked it all.

4:48:14 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I think you're confusing us with yourself

4:48:50 PM Julie: DV:  We'll find her.

4:52:11 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly, to Guy, looking down:: You might as well show him the body

4:52:34 PM Julie: GU:  ::nods and leads him down the hallway::

4:52:48 PM Julie: DV:  ::does look mildly surprised; kneels beside it, touching it::  Mr. Hamilton is good.

4:53:44 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::sharply:: Maeve's dead, this has nothing to do with Toby

4:54:20 PM Julie: DV:  ::nods, folding his arms::  Fine.  So Mr. Stowe goes to the gallows for murder.

4:55:26 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You can't trying him for killing someone who's already officially dead.

4:55:32 PM Quantum Catz: *try him

4:55:59 PM Julie: DV:  ::shakes his head::  I didn't mention a trial.  And perhaps not even a hanging.

4:56:33 PM Julie: GU:  ::pounds his fist against the wall::  I have done everything you asked!  Except for roll over and die.  I have a wife and a child coming.  You've no right to do any of this!

4:56:50 PM Julie: DV:  ::in a low voice::  So why don't you kill me?

4:56:56 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: If they can be convinced that you're dead...no one ever has to know who you are

4:58:01 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::is standing away from the body, feeling a bit overwhelmed by all of this in her state; a tree branch bangs against the window rather loudly, in response to DAvid's words::

4:58:10 PM Maeve: MV: ::she laughs weakly, shaking her head:: It's not that simple. What if someone forces me to use my powers again? What if Livvy gives me away? What if they don't believe I am dead?

4:58:40 PM Julie: GU:  ::glances back at his wife::

4:59:08 PM Julie: DV:  Do like you did to Maeve.

5:00:49 PM Quantum Catz: BM: You'd have to have patience. Have to build up a history as someone else. But you're not the only person in the world who can throw fireballs and not the only person Livvy'd die to protect.

5:00:51 PM Quantum Catz:  Maybe Isaac could say it's your similarity to Maeve that makes him like you

5:02:02 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: He's not a killer, stop talking about him like he is

5:02:11 PM Maeve: MV: ::she rubs at her forehead:: A history as who? ::she sighs:: I guess if I were smart I'd have you drop me front of the gates and walk back in as someone different. ::laughs::

5:02:33 PM Julie: DV:  ::frowns at Kizzie::  You don't know him any better than that?

5:06:52 PM Julie: GU:  I've half a mind to kill you right now.  ::folds his arms::  But I expect you want to bring the body back to wherever it needs to go?

5:06:58 PM Julie: DV:  ::looks closely at Isaac::

5:07:32 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::is looking down at the body, unshed tears in his eyes at the image of his wife, lying there still and cold::

5:08:15 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Toby can make papers for you, ID, birth certificate - you could just walk in as someone else

5:08:56 PM Julie: DV:  ::slowly::  I wonder if you could do the same for me.

5:08:59 PM Maeve: MV: ::she nods:: Might be best. Any thoughts on where I go for tonight? ::smirks:: I guess  a night in the forest can't kill me after every thing else.

5:09:01 PM Julie: GU:  Kill you?

5:09:55 PM Quantum Catz: BM: Maybe it's best if you come to our place - in the morning once Toby's rested, we'll sort out the rest

5:10:50 PM Maeve: MV: ::she bites her lip, wincing:: That's taking a risk Becky.

5:11:51 PM Quantum Catz: BM: You really think they'd come looking in our house tonight on the hunch you might be alive?

5:12:19 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: It's probably all that he deserves

5:12:32 PM Maeve: MV: ::smirks:: Anything is possible, right? For all I know, they might not believe that Guy would kill me to save himself. 

5:13:31 PM Julie: DV:  ::quietly::  You think I enjoy this?  ::shakes his head::  I just want out.  Make a body, so maybe I can get a bit of my life back.

5:20:23 PM Julie: GU:  I don't know what you're talking about.

5:20:31 PM Julie: DV:  ::glares at Isaac::  Come, now--I'm not stupid.

5:20:40 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Maybe it's best if you don't then

5:21:38 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::Takes a deep breath and looks at Guy, not sure what to say::

5:22:15 PM Maeve: MV: ::she looks down, and nods:: Well, I guess I'm just gonna... find a tree. ::laughs, though it sounds like it is the last thing she wants:: 

5:22:34 PM Julie: GU:  ::grabs David's collar; in a low voice::  I just want my family to be safe.  What will that take?

5:26:39 PM Quantum Catz: BM: If it was just us...but i need to know Ben's safe.  There are a couple of rooms in the orphanage that aren't being used just now.  They're locked, no one's likely to go in them - i can take you there

5:27:31 PM Julie: DV:  ::winces::  I don't know that I can ever make that promise, but I can tell them what you want them to hear.

5:28:25 PM Maeve: MV: ::she chews on her lip, wondering if the others would have more means of locating her:: 

5:30:19 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You'll tell them she's dead? 

5:30:47 PM Julie: DV:  ::nods::  I'll bring the body.

5:32:56 PM Maeve: MV: ::she shakes her head:: Maybe I should just take my chances with the forest for tonight.

5:33:31 PM Quantum Catz: BM: I could take you to that cave Leyla used...if you're sure

5:33:55 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates again, not sure whether to believe him::

5:34:22 PM Maeve: MV: ::she nods:: Yeah I'm sure. Take me to the cave. 

5:34:47 PM Julie: DV:  ::in a low voice::  You can trust me or kill me.  I don't see that you have any other options.

5:36:27 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I'm beginning to wonder if i can really trust anyone any more

5:37:59 PM Julie: GU:  ::softly::  Kizzie?  Should we chance it?

5:37:59 PM Quantum Catz: BM: ::reaches for Maeve;s hand and takes her to the cave::

5:40:19 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: ::looks at David, rather wearily:: We have to, unless you want another body to get rid of

5:41:13 PM Julie: GU:  ::takes Kizzie's arm; whispers::  If Toby would even do it.

5:41:50 PM Maeve: MV: ::she looks around and finally finds a semi-clean spot to sit in:: You're welcome to join me if you need time to rest but I'll understand if you want to get home.

5:43:31 PM Quantum Catz: BM: I'll need to get back to Ben eventaully, but i can stay a little while.  I don't like to think of you sitting out here on your own

5:43:59 PM Quantum Catz: KZ: If it keeps us all safe, why wouldn't he?

5:44:16 PM Julie: TY:  ::opens the closet door; quietly::  So we're doing it?

5:45:10 PM Maeve: MV: ::smiles slightly:: 

5:45:53 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::Sighs:: Like Kizzie says, i'm not sure we have a choice

5:46:52 PM Julie: TY:  ::nods, motioning to the body::  Get her out of here, then.  I'll meet you somewhere.

On to ????
