5:43:18 PM Maggie: LA:  ::is at the dining room table cleaning up what's left of their dinner. She isn't as good as Dolly but she's a step up from Maeve when Maeve first started out. 

5:43:26 PM Maggie: Though tonight was a bit off. In fact she's been nervous for almost two weeks now, and trying to hide it. She pauses now sniffing.:::

5:49:36 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::has been rather busy at work and he stifles a yawn:: Are you okay?

5:50:27 PM Maggie: LA: ::swallows:: Yeah. I'm fine. ::she picks up a bowl and hurries into the kitchen::

5:55:16 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::stands up to follow her, hesitating in the doorway:: Are you sure? You've been acting strange for the past few days

5:56:02 PM Maggie: LA: ::she shrugs;: Yeah. I guess.  

5:57:16 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::uncertainly:: You know you can talk to me, right?

5:57:32 PM Maggie: LA: ::she pauses, biting her lip::

6:01:25 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::takes a step towards her:: Come on, tell me.  you're worrying me

6:02:36 PM Maggie: LA: ::she opens her mouth, trying, then suddenly pales even more:: 

6:02:57 PM Maggie: ::there's a knock on the door:: 

6:03:42 PM Maggie: LA: ::she reaches for his arm, shaking::: Isaac is here... ::she can't bring herself to mention what she still believes is her going insane:: 

6:05:06 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Kitten...what's going on?

6:05:23 PM Maggie: LA: ::whispers:: I don't know. But...

6:05:31 PM Maggie: ::there's another knock:: 

6:06:12 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::sighs and then goes to answer it, though he glances back at Leyla as he goes::

6:06:31 PM Maggie: LA: ::stays where she is, still very pale:: 

6:07:49 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::opens the door:

6:08:16 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly at his brother:: Hey

6:08:27 PM Maggie: MV: ::hiding behind Isaac::

6:10:52 PM Maggie: LA: ::she comes forward, eyes wide:: 

6:11:09 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::frowns past Isaac:: Who's that?

6:12:01 PM Maggie: MV: ::she cringes and digs her fingers into Isaac's arm. She'd argued that she didn't really need to be present.:: 

6:12:26 PM Maggie: LA: ::continues to stare, not daring to voice it until she's sure she hasn't gone crazy::

6:12:30 PM Quantum Catz: IS: It's a long story, can we come in?

6:12:46 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Whoever she is, she's upsetting Leyla, so no.  Not until i know who she is

6:13:23 PM Maggie: LA: ::whispers:: Let em in. ::she pulls on his arm, trying to get him to step back::

6:14:58 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::is still frowning but he backs up when Leyla asks him to::

6:15:52 PM Maggie: LA: ::reaches for Eli's hand::

6:17:35 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves into the house, turning to glance at Maeve:: I guess i'm the one telling them then?

6:18:17 PM Maggie: MV: ::frowns at him and walks in, sparing an uneasy smile for Leyla; mutters:: They won't kill you. 

6:19:26 PM Quantum Catz: IS: They won't kill you either

6:20:03 PM Maggie: MV: ::smirks. She didn't want to come in the first place.:: 

6:21:16 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::takes a deep breath and then smiles weakly at Leyla:: I'm guessing you already kind of know.  This is Maeve

6:22:02 PM Maggie: MV: ::she ducks behind Isaac again, still half afraid Eli will maul her:: 

6:23:16 PM Maggie: LA: ::she tucks a strand of hair behind her ear, nervously; whispers:: I thought maybe I was crazy. Smelling things that weren't there... 

6:23:40 PM Quantum Catz: EK: What the hell are you two talking about? 

6:24:08 PM Maggie: LA:  Change forms and smell her. 

6:24:23 PM Maggie: MV:: ::sharply:: No! Theres... theres... no need for that... 

6:25:14 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: Maeve, he's not going to hurt you...

6:26:03 PM Maggie: MV: Yeah right. 

6:27:55 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks rather angry now:: Yeah, i'll just attack you right here in front of Isaac and Leyla with my kids in the next room

6:28:56 PM Maggie: MV: ::glares at him:: Well fine. Now you know. I'll just... go... ::heads for the door:: 

6:30:44 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Does this have to turn into a fight between you two?

6:31:53 PM Maggie: MV: ::pauses at the door, shoulders slumped:: I'm not in the mood for one. 

6:32:23 PM Maggie: LA: ::she reaches out, hesitantly, to touch her arm:: You look so different... 

6:36:49 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::changes into a fox, sniffing the air, then grumbles and goes to sit in the couch, still looking annoyed but not changing back yet::

6:37:55 PM Maggie: MV: ::smiles slightly at Leyla again:: Sorry... I just didn't know how to show up on your doorstep... 

6:38:22 PM Maggie: LA: ::reaches out to hug her briefly::  

6:38:44 PM Maggie: MV: ::when she pulls back she looks to Isaac again, silently asking if they can go now:: 

6:40:44 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::changes back:: So where have you been hiding?

6:41:50 PM Maggie: MV: ::she winces and shakes her head:: Does it matter? 

6:43:07 PM Quantum Catz: EK: It matters that you left everyone to think that you were dead.  you know how it felt when Isaac was gone and you went and put him through the same thing

6:43:50 PM Maggie: MV: ::whispers:: That wasn't my choice Eli. 

6:44:20 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Then whose choice was it?

6:44:58 PM Maggie: MV: ::she looks back up at Isaac, biting her lip:: 

6:47:08 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: Eli, let's not go into this just now.  She's hiding from the people who took her, she needs you to not tell anyone she's here

6:49:10 PM Maggie: LA: ::her eyes widen:: 

6:51:49 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::hesitates, looking at Maeve:: Are they dangerous?

6:52:56 PM Maggie: MV: ::she hesitates too:: I can't see them harming any of you. 

6:53:30 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Are they likely to come here looking for you?

6:54:21 PM Maggie: MV: ::shakes her head:: They think I'm dead. And as long as I stay that way... 

6:56:14 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::shrugs:: Fine, we keep our mouths shut we all stay safe.  Are you going to tell Josh and Dolly?

6:56:39 PM Maggie: MV: ::she looks back at Isaac:: Your brother thinks it might be best if they don't know for now... 

6:59:05 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: Josh has been through too much right now

7:00:00 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::nods, looking down:: Probably

7:02:15 PM Maggie: MV: ::stands there awkwardly:: 

7:06:55 PM Maggie: LA: ::softly to Maeve:: If you need anything... me and the twins are here through the day

7:10:45 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::looks a bit unhappy about that but doesnt say anything::

7:10:48 PM Maggie: MV: ::weakly;: Thanks Leyla but until I'm sure it wouldn't be out of the ordinary... I should probably stay away. Just in case. ::edges towards the door:: 

7:11:26 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I'll walk you back to your place

7:11:57 PM Maggie: MV: ::she turns, biting her lip:: Maybe... and maybe you should look out into the hall first? 

7:14:28 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: Yeah, okay

7:14:38 PM Maggie: MV: ::Steps aside::

7:16:01 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::goes to look and then moves back to the door:: All clear

7:16:26 PM Maggie: MV: ::smiles once more at Leyla, not even bothering to look at Eli, and slips out.::

7:21:42 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::once they're gone:: Why didn't you tell me?

7:21:55 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Well, that wasn't too bad, was it?

7:22:32 PM Maggie: LA: ::she looks down:: I thought I was going crazy. I mean, would you have believe me if I told you I thought I smelled her?

7:22:46 PM Maggie: MV: ::smirks:: I guess. 

7:28:24 PM Quantum Catz: EK: Maybe not, but I could've changed shape.  all you had to do was ask

7:29:35 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::reaches out and squeezes her hand:: Eli isn't as bad as you always make out

7:29:55 PM Maggie:  LA: ::she winces:: But what if I had been wrong Eli? I *really* thought that... ::she shakes her head::

7:30:48 PM Maggie: MV: ::shakes her head:: He doesn't approve of me Isaac. Even now, he'd be happier if I were a million miles away from you all and the bad thing is... :::she sighs, shaking her head::

7:33:21 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::stands up and reaches for her:: Yeah, okay, i'm sorry. i guess it wouldn't be the easiest thing to talk about

7:33:46 PM Maggie: LA: ::she nods and goes into his embrace::

7:34:36 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: He just wants to be able to protect us all

7:34:59 PM Maggie: MV: Protect you all from me. 

7:38:28 PM Quantum Catz: EK: ::hugs Leyla:: At least you know you're not crazy now

7:39:47 PM Quantum Catz: IS: It isn't like that

7:40:10 PM Maggie: MV: That's what it sounds like. 

7:42:07 PM Quantum Catz: IS: You two have always just kind of rubbed each other the wrong way

7:43:42 PM Maggie: MV: ::she stops at he door, frowning.:: It's more than that Isaac. He isn't even happy for you that I'm back.... and I can't even fault him for it... which is even worse.

7:45:04 PM Quantum Catz: IS: I can't imagine Josh's first reaction will be happiness either ::sighs:: This isn't easy, not for any of us

7:45:59 PM Maggie: MV: ::nods, sadly:: I guess not... ::opens the door:: 

7:49:46 PM Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles weakly:: It'll get easier

7:50:37 PM Maggie: MV: ::She doubts that. She reaches up, kissing him lightly:: Good night. 

7:50:53 PM Quantum Catz: IS: Good night
