~Sometime in 1999~

Quantum Catz: DK: ::since the three of them are all holding each other; shrugs:: That'll do ::the surroundings blur for a moment and the room's suddenly emptier and darker::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is silent, thinking of how scared he was the first time Dominick took him to another time::
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks around curiously:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly:: We're in '99, i've got money that'll work in this time
SP00KY One: MV: Am I still alive?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Far as i can tell. Pretty empty here though, guess it's been shut down
SP00KY One: MV: ::frowns:: No! I meant here! As in... :::rubs her head::: this is confusing. Does my older self exist here?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: The way you've been living, probably not.
Quantum Catz: DK: You'd be about ninety if you did
SP00KY One: MV: :::glares at Toby::::
SP00KY One: MV: Lets go find myself! I want to ask me some questions. :::laughs:::
Quantum Catz: DK: I brought you here cos Becky said you needed a doctor, that's all we're doing
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Don't use your powers, Maeve.
SP00KY One: MV: :::whispers back::: Why?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Remember what you saw from mine and Toby's memories?
SP00KY One: MV: ::pales a little bit and nods. She looks over at Dominic:: And you brought us here because!? Are you crazy! :::she shakes her head::: I don't want to stay here. Lets go home.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: It won't be for long. ::glances around, making sure no one's around::
SP00KY One: MV: I dont even want to go the hospital! They're evil in the 20's! God knows how much worse they are now!
Quantum Catz: : ::the place seems to be completely abandoned::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::snaps:: Fine, then, i'll take you back and you can go get yourself arrested
YarnKittymon: TY: ::leans against Becky; quietly:: Please stop.
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns::: Great. Can't go forward and can't go backward. No matter what we do there is disaster written all over it! :::feels like crying:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::mutters:: Well that's your fault not mine
SP00KY One: MV: :::grumbles::: Well, if something happens and we get thrown in those... whatever they are. Then I'd say it was you're fault.
Quantum Catz: DK: You'd have to get yourself arrested *here* first
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks down, suddenly feeling guilty::
SP00KY One: MV: :::covers her face with her hands::: Okay, okay. FINE. Lets just hurry up and do whatever it is that we're gonna do and get home.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::puts her arm around Toby and smiles at him, weakly::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::glances at Dominick:: Do you know where a hospital is?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: No. Not here.
SP00KY One: MV: :::groans::: I don't know whether to be happy about that or more worried.
YarnKittymon: TY: Maybe there's one at the same place the one was back in 1928.
Quantum Catz: DK: We could just get a taxi and ask them to take us to the hospital. What happened to you anyway?
YarnKittymon: TY: Car wreck. Becky got off pretty easy.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks at Toby rather coldly for a moment although it quickly fades; softly:: You should be grateful she did
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks a little puzzled; leans closer to Becky:: I am...
SP00KY One: MV: :::goes back to surveying her surroundings:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::hesitates and then says:: Libby told me you saved her life...and Maeve too...i guess i should be grateful for that at least
Quantum Catz: : ::the building's rather dilapidated and doesn't look like it's been in use for a long time::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::blinks; pauses:: You saw Libby?
Quantum Catz: DK: Yeah, who else was i supposed to talk to when you and Becky had both disappeared?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::glances at Becky; quietly:: How is she?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::adds:: And Dan
SP00KY One: MV: :::adds some more::: And anyone else you might have seen? :::smiles:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::shrugs:: Fine, i guess. Wasn't much interested in how they were at the time. And i didn't talk to anyone else
SP00KY One: MV: :::sighs::: At least they're alright. I guess the police are leaving them alone. :::looks over at Toby::: You think they're leaving them alone?
YarnKittymon: TY: I'm sure everyone's fine, Maeve, and I'm sure they're all rooting for us to make it to the island safe.
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods:: So are we just going to stand here all day? Or are we looking for one of those evil buildings that house evil people in white coats that stick you with sharp objects?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::shakes his head:: Come on then, let's go
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods weakly, holding Becky closer, as if he's afraid to lose her::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::glances at Toby and Becky and then heads towards the doorway::
SP00KY One: MV: :::follows behind them, hopping on one foot and occasionally grimacing:::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's fewer people outside than there had been when they came in, and considerably more cars, which are mostly brightly colored, with more rounded curves than they had in the 1920s::
YarnKittymon: : ::the people who are there are dressed more casually; no one's wearing a hat, and most of the girls are wearing clothes that would hardly be considered proper underwear::
YarnKittymon: : ::the neighborhood itself has fallen into disrepair, and in the distance they can see buildings as high as anything in New York City::
SP00KY One: MV: :::points at a hot pink punch buggy::: What is that!? It looks so weird. :::watches a teen ager walk by and the yells:: Hey Lady! Ever thought of actually wearing a whole outfit!?
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman looks back at Maeve, glaring:: You ever thought of wearing a dress with a *waist?* You dress like my grandma.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::rolls her eyes:: Maeve, it would help if you didn't draw attention to us so much, you know
SP00KY One: MV: :::glares at her::: Well at least I dont wonder around in my undergarments!
SP00KY One: MV: Oh. Yeah. Sorry.
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman continues to glare at Maeve for a moment, and then storms off::
Quantum Catz: DK: We'll need to walk from here - i don't think we'll find many taxis driving round here
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles weakly:: Besides, Maeve, I kind of like how girls dress here.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::starts walking in the direction the hospital they were in before was in::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: Hey, no eyeing up the girls just cos they're wearing less here
SP00KY One: MV: :::glares at Toby's back for a second before following. She continues to glance around her::: Okay, I feel really out of place.
YarnKittymon: TY: At least you look like a free spirit. I look like a sell-out.
SP00KY One: MV: :::watches another one walk by and then looks down at her clothes::: Yeah sure. So much for blending in.
Quantum Catz: DK: Well there's not much i can do about your clothes, is there?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: If you two wanted I guess I could get up the energy to make you fit in.
Quantum Catz: BM: You mean just *remove* some material? No thanks
SP00KY One: MV: ::sees a woman walk by in a pair of jeans::: Hey! I want some of those! They look more comfortable then a skirt. :::looks over at Toby and smirks::: I'm not sure I'd trust you.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles, but doesn't reply::
SP00KY One: MV: ::smirks:: Then again, I'd think Becky would have more to worry about then me. :::laughs::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: Well i don't trust him anymore than you do. So i guess we'll never know
Quantum Catz: DK: ::remains silent, looking at the ground as he walks::
SP00KY One: MV: :::watches a guy walk by talking on a phone::: Why is he talking to a litlte black object? Is he suspecting it to talk back?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly:: It's a phone
SP00KY One: MV: A phone? Where did he put all the wires at? How does he get it to work?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly again:: Radio waves. Not that you need to know anyway
YarnKittymon: : ::they reach a busy intersection with a crosswalk, as well as stoplights and a flashing "Don't Walk" sign; the latter of two would be relative novelties::
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns::: Why? Afriad I might go and invent it a few years too early?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::shrugs::
SP00KY One: MV: :::leans over and whispers to Becky::: Not much of a people person is he?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::stops at the crosswalk; softly:: If he hadn't brought me back, Becky probably... ::shakes his head::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glances at Dominick and smiles weakly:: I don't think he's in the best of moods right now
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks up and smiles wryly:: Would you like me to walk further back so i can't hear you guys?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles weakly:: I was just thanking you for setting me up with Becky.
SP00KY One: MV: :::smiles back::: Sure, if you dont mind? Then again further up so we can see you might be better.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::smiles weakly at Maeve and then says to Toby:: Yeah, well, setting you up with her wasn't really any plan of mine at the time
Quantum Catz: DK: She was supposed to be keeping an eye on you
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, it's lucky you did, or she wouldn't have that nice new body of hers.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::wryly:: Fiona's gonna have a field day with this, she told me she thought you two would get on - and she loves thinking of herself as a matchmaker
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the ground at the mention of Fiona, remembering her memories from the lab::
YarnKittymon: : ::the light turns green, and across the street, the white letters "WALK" light up::
SP00KY One: MV: Neat. It tells you when to walk. :::steps off the curb:::
YarnKittymon: : ::someone making a right turn pulls out right as Maeve steps into the sidewalk::
SP00KY One: MV: ::and of course she doesn't see the car:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman slams on her brakes as soon as she sees Maeve...::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::pulls Maeve back onto the pavement::
SP00KY One: MV: :::gasps::: My knee! owe, owe! :::glares at the car::: Hey! the sign said walk! Whats the big idea!?
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman is talking on one of those "phones" Maeve was so mystified about; she shrugs apologetically at Maeve and then makes her turn::
Quantum Catz: BM: Maeve, are you okay?
SP00KY One: MV: :::continues to glare at the car as it passes::: Uh-huh. But I dont think I'm going to trust those blinking walk things anymore.
YarnKittymon: TY: I'm starting to lose my faith in *cars.*
Quantum Catz: DK: Come on, let's get going before the lights change again
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still looks both ways before crossing::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she grimaces and limps on behind them, checking over her shoulder to make sure no one else attempts to run her over:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks at Maeve; softly:: Do you need any help walking?
SP00KY One: MV: :::shakes her head::: No thanks. I'll live.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::shrugs:: If you're sure
SP00KY One: MV: Oh yeah, I'm sure.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: I hope we're close...
SP00KY One: MV: Me too.
YarnKittymon: : ::they can see a rather tall white building up ahead, at least eight stories, about where the hospital was::
Quantum Catz: BM: That *could* be a hospital
SP00KY One: MV: Yay.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: If we have any luck, it is...::starts walking a little faster::
SP00KY One: MV: :::continues on at her slow, painful pace:: Go on ahead, I'll catch up.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::slows down a bit:: Don't be silly.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks at Maeve:: Are you still sure you don't want help?
SP00KY One: MV: ::::stubbornly shakes her head::: Yes, I'm quite sure thank you. :::bites her lip to keep from grimacing:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::whispers to Becky:: You don't think Dominick would *really* put Maeve in jail, do you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shakes her head:: He doesn't trust the police any more than we do
YarnKittymon: TY: ::even quieter:: And he wouldn't separate us?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: He might try to make you go back to the present...but he knows i can go anywhere i want and i doubt he wants me to to disappear again after looking for me for so many years
Quantum Catz: DK: ::not paying attention to Toby and Becky:: You know, sometimes being stubborn can be a real pain
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks troubled, but doesn't say anything::
Quantum Catz: ((that's to maeve, in case it isn't obvious ^_-))
SP00KY One: MV: ::smirks::: Lets see? Continue to limp along in pain, or let you close enough to me, where you can easily drop me into a jail? Gee, I dont know, its a toss up.
SP00KY One: ((it was obvious. ;) ))
Quantum Catz: DK: Unless a jail springs up right here somewhere in time, that isn't going to happen - Becky's the only one of us who can teleport
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns::: Well, then how do I know that you wont just go back in time, and drop me back in jail on the day I was locked up?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: I don't know, i guess you'd just have to trust me
SP00KY One: MV: Well, I dont.
YarnKittymon: : ::suddenly, a vehicle as big as a moving truck turns out from the street in front of the big white building, its siren blaring; it's enough to startle anyone familiar with modern ambulances, let alone someone who's not::
SP00KY One: MV: :::it startles Maeve and she jumps. Landing on her injured leg, it buckles and she falls:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks back:: Maeve? ::starts to walk back there, but senses he'll be on the ground too if he tries it::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::kneels down to help Maeve, putting his hand on her shoulder:: Come on, let me help you for gods sake
SP00KY One: MV: :::doesn't even attempt to get up:: I'm okay. :::sits there while trying to reign in her breathing::: Must they have those things turned up so loud?
SP00KY One: MV: :::bats his hand away::: No touching.
YarnKittymon: TY: Everything's loud here. Just like Coney Island.
SP00KY One: MV: :::grumbles::: Sounded louder to me.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Welcome back to modern times
Quantum Catz: DK: ::shakes his head at Maeve, like he can't believe how stubborn she's being::
YarnKittymon: TY: Cheer up; it means we're on the right track. ::pauses, looking the way the amublance went:: Or maybe the opposite of the right track.
SP00KY One: MV: :::intends to sit for as long as she can, it feels a lot better than having to put weight on her knee:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: Can you even stand up again?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns; glances at Becky:: I guess I can support myself for a couple blocks, if you and Dominick can help her.
SP00KY One: MV: The question is do I want to stand up again?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::wryly:: Dominick could probably help her on his own if she'd let him
Quantum Catz: DK: ::shakes his head:: Well, do you? How bout we go to the hospital and meet you later then?
SP00KY One: MV: ::smiles and nods::: Sounds good to me. I'll sit here and not have to enter the place of death. You'll be rid of me and everyone will be happy.
YarnKittymon: TY: Oh, no way. Philadelphia's not that far from Boston, and that's where my parents live. No way am I going to risk you hurting *them.*
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks over at Toby quizzically::: What? Why on earth would I do that?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: Not on purpose, but trouble seems to follow you.
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns:::
Quantum Catz: BM: Just let Dominick help you, Maeve. *I* trust him, if that helps
YarnKittymon: TY: I'm not leaving you, if that's what you wanted to know.
SP00KY One: MV: :::sighs::: Fine. :::holds out her hands for Dominick to help her up:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::takes her hands and helps her to her feet; wryly:: That wasn't so difficult now, was it?
SP00KY One: MV: :::smirks::: Ask me again when I'm locked away in a cell with no windows.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::unconvincingly:: If you behave nothing bad will happen.
Quantum Catz: BM: Will you guys stop it? Dominick won't send you back to jail, Maeve, and he knows it too
SP00KY One: MV: :::doesn't look convinced::: Lets just hurry up and get this over with. Is that a hospital ahead or not?
YarnKittymon: : ::it is a hospital ahead, with the same name as the one they stayed in earlier, though it's a completely new building::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly:: Looks like it
SP00KY One: MV: Yay. Maybe they will be better about helping us now than they were in the past.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shrugs:: They did the best they could for me, anyway.


YarnKittymon: : ::though it takes a little while, both Toby and Maeve are admitted to the hospital, and they stay there overnight, leaving Becky and Dominick to fend for themselves::
Quantum Catz: : ::Becky and Dominick end up sleeping in the lobby though not before Becky explans everything that's happened to them and why they did it::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::spent the whole night pouting and glaring at her wrapped up knee and any nurses that dared to enter her room until finally drifting off in the early morning hours:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::got a pretty good night's sleep, bizarrely thinking of himself as safe in the hospital, and fairly certain whatever infection he has isn't resistant to antibiotics, since they hadn't really been discovered back when he got infected::
YarnKittymon: : ::in the waiting room, a young man, around 20, goes up to speak with a nurse, then goes and sits down in the waiting area; he has dark brown hair, but the only unusual aspect of his appearance is that he's wearing stage make-up on his face and where his hands peek out from beneath his long sleeves::
Quantum Catz: : ::Becky is still asleep with her head resting on Dominick's shoulder; he's half-awake but doesn't want to move in case he wakes her::
YarnKittymon: : ::from the looks of it, the nurses might have drawn straws to see who has to go in and give Maeve her crutches and tell her to stay off her foot for a few weeks, because the one who comes in looks like she'd rather be wrestling
YarnKittymon: a mongoose than dealing with Maeve:: Uh...miss?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::glares at the woman::: If you're coming in here to poke me with something then you can just turn right back around.
YarnKittymon: : ::the nurse holds the crutches defensively in front of herself:: No; we don't want you taking up our beds any more than you want to be here.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::her eyes brighten and she reaches for the crutches::: I'm freeeeeee!
YarnKittymon: : ::the stranger smiles at Dominick, looking at him with his own green eyes; whispers:: Nice contacts.
YarnKittymon: : ::the nurse gives Maeve the crutches from arm's length away:: Make sure you use them, and stay off that knee. You can take it out of the brace when you take a shower, but leave it on at all other times. You can ice it as
YarnKittymon: long as you can bear it, if the pain bothers you.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::turns to look at the man and smiles weakly:: Oh, yeah, great aren't they?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::snatches the crutches from her and attempts to get out of the bed, only half paying attention to what the woman is saying. She struggles for a bit but she manages to get up and moving out the door:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the stranger nods:: Out west they say this is a really good hospital, you know. ::turns to look towards the front counter; Dominick can see a tiny blue stripe peeking through under a bit of make-up that's been smudged::
YarnKittymon: : ::the nurse obviously has an internal debate, and finally says:: Please be careful, and mind the stairs. You'd best take the elevator, actually.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::notices the stripe but doesn't mention it:: Really? I didn't know that
YarnKittymon: : ::the young man nods, suddenly turning sober:: That's what they say. I hope they're right.
Quantum Catz: DK: You here for something serious?
Maeve Owens: MV: Yeah yeah yeah :::she makes her way down the hall and over to the elevator. She has some cordination promblem, trying to balance and push the button at the same time. She finally manages it and gets on the elevator.:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the young man nods:: Yeah, pretty serious.
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a male nurse in the elevator with her; he's heard rumors, and shies to the back corner of the car::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::seriously:: I hope it works out for you
Maeve Owens: MV: :::She gives the male nurse a psychotic grin and then presses the button for the first floor. Unable to resist, she then pushes all the rest of them:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the young man nods, then stands and holds out his hand:: The name's Oliver Quinn.
YarnKittymon: : ::the nurse just groans::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::doesn't stand up since Becky's still asleep but he holds out his hand to shake Oliver's:: Dominick
Maeve Owens: MV: :::the elevator opens and she exits, looking around and wondering where she's suppose to go:::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::smiles weakly:: I'm not used to seeing anyone under 50 in the hospital. You aren't here for anything bad, are you?
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a clear sign pointing to the waiting room, which is only about 30 feet away::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::indicates Becky:: My sister's friends were hurt but they should be fine
Maeve Owens: MV: :::heads for the waiting room:::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::a little surprised:: Oh, sister... Well, good.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::starts to come through the door but her left crutch catches on the frame and she ends up face down on the floor:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::smiles weakly:: Yeah, i don't see her very often and here i am stuck in a hospital when i do
Quantum Catz: ((the door to where we are?))
Maeve Owens: MV: :::lifts herself up a way::: Just once! Just once I would like to make it through one day without falling flat on my face! is that too much to ask! :::pauses for a moment and winces::: owe that hurt.
Maeve Owens: ((i thought so...))
YarnKittymon: OL: ::hears someone fall and hurries over to help her up:: Are you all right?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::groans and moves Becky's head, standing up as well and moving towards Maeve:: Do you need help?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::::frowns::: Um, yeah.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::leans down, offering her a hand to stand up::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::does the same, smiling:: When you look like that, who needs coordination?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::wryly:: It'd probably make it easier on the people around her if she did though
Maeve Owens: MV: :::her head jerks towards the new guy and looks at him quizzically before taking the offered hands and getting to her feet:::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::smiles at Maeve:: Oliver Quinn.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she starts to smile at him but once the name "Quinn" sinks in, she frowns::: Quinn? :::she looks over at Dominick and laughs::: His name is Quinn. :::she coughs::: Maeve Owens, nice to meet you.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks at Maeve, bemused:: What's his last name got to do with anything? Did the nurses give you something before they let you leave? They did *let* you leave your bed, right?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::smirks:: And what's wrong with 'Quinn?' 'Maeve' isn't exactly a common name, either.
Maeve Owens: MV: It's just the last guy I met whose name was Quinn turned- :::shakes her head::: Anyway, thats not important. Maeve happens to be quite common in Ireland thank you. :::she glances over at Dominick::: And yes, they let me leave my bed.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::smiles wider:: Well, I'm sure I'm nothing like the Quinn who turned anyway.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::glances over at Becky and then asks:: Don't suppose you know what's happening with Toby?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she grins::: No, I bet its safe to say that you're not.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shakes her head::: No, I haven't heard. I think the staff might be a little afraid of me.
YarnKittymon: OL: Why? What's a girl on crutches going to do to them?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles secretively and shrugs:::
Quantum Catz: DK: I'm going to see if i can find out then, don't cause too much trouble, eh? ::heads out the door::
Maeve Owens: MV: Me? cause trouble? Now when have i ever been known to do that?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::a bit of make-up has rubbed onto Maeve's hand where Oliver took it, though he doesn't seem to notice:: First time for everything?
Maeve Owens: ((where is the blue smudge?))
YarnKittymon: ((On one side of his face; you can pick which if you like))
YarnKittymon: ((kinda back near an ear))
Maeve Owens: ((this guy got blue skin?))
YarnKittymon: ((Some))
Quantum Catz: DK: ::heads for the reception, looking for someone to ask::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::notices a blue smudge back near his right ear::: You have something blue on your face.
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a friendly-looking receptionist who asks Dominick:: May I help you?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::eyes widen; turns away from Maeve, rubbing at the side of his face, not speaking::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::frowns::: is there something wrong?
Quantum Catz: DK: uh, yeah, my friend was brought in yesterday...i'm trying to find where he is
YarnKittymon: OL: ::glances back at Maeve; he's just made things worse, with his rubbing, as she can see a blue stripe, not entirely unlike a tiger's, but with firmer edges, reaching from just below his eye to his ear:: Excuse me. ::walks
YarnKittymon: towards the bathroom hurriedly::
YarnKittymon: : ::the receptionist smiles brightly:: Toby MacIntosh, right?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sadly she watches him walk away:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is just waking up and groans a bit as she opens her eyes::
Quantum Catz: DK: Yeah, that's it
YarnKittymon: : ::she nods:: Room 231, just upstairs. Can you find it yourself?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles over at Becky::: Hey!
Quantum Catz: DK: Yeah, sure, i'll find it, thanks ::heads up that way::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::blinks and rubs her eyes:: Hey. How are you?
Maeve Owens: MV: Now that I am free? I'm fine. How about you?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is sleeping in his room, undisturbed by the sunlight shining from the window onto his face::
Quantum Catz: BM: Alright. Talked to Dominick last night...he seemed a bit less annoyed over you and Toby by the end
Quantum Catz: DK: ::hesitates in the doorway, not wanting to wake him::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods::: Thats good. I just saw him a few minutes ago. He's gone to check on Toby. He was standing here talking to a guy named Oliver *Quinn* :::she grins:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::wakes on his own after just a minute; opens his eyes groggily and looks at Dominick:: Hey. Looking for my pillow so you can smother Maeve?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: *Quinn*? Don't tell me he happened to randomly bump into a relative of Donalds
Quantum Catz: DK: ::smiles weakly:: I don't think i'd take it that far
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles back:: She's a good person.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shrugs::: I dont know. I was afraid to ask.
Quantum Catz: DK: S not really the point, Toby but it doesn't really matter much since anything i can do, Becky can just *un*do
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she leans closer to Becky and whispers::: Although if he is, his offspring married a variant somewhere down the line cause he's got a blue stripe on his face.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::suddenly looks a little pale, then relieved again:: I guess so...
Quantum Catz: BM: A blue stripe? Like a tiger?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she nods::: Kind of, but a bit more defined.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::shrugs:: You know she's usually as bad as me about not interfering in things
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: I know; I was just remembering what...what you threatened to do before... She's really important to me.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::peeks back through the door, his stripe now hidden, clearly debating the merits of entering the waiting room versus waiting in the hall::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she smiles at him and waves.:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::smiles weakly:: Yeah, i was kinda picking up on that from her. I guess you're pretty important to her too
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up at Oliver::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: Thanks for bringing me here.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::waves weakly, then glances back at Maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles again::: Well? Are you just going to hang out in the hall?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::looks around the room nervously, then comes back in::
Quantum Catz: DK: Yeah well...it wasn't a matchmaking trip but i guess it made it easier on you, having a pretty girl around to befriend
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles at Oliver:: Hi
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: Not just for that. ::pauses:: Though I guess objectively, if Becky weren't there, it wouldn't be much fun to be there...
YarnKittymon: OL: ::in a rather subdued voice, keeping his hands to himself this time:: Good morning. Oliver Quinn.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::smirks:: Yeah, i'm sure it wouldn't
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm Becky
YarnKittymon: TY: With some luck I'll be out of here today; they're a little worried but I think with antibiotics I'll be OK.
YarnKittymon: OL: Nice to meet you. ::looks at the floor::
Quantum Catz: DK: Worried? Why?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::looks like she is having an internal debate with herself. Finally in a rush;:::: You're not related to a Donald Quinn are you?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::looks a little startled:: My great-grandfather's name was Donald. Why?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::looks over at Becky and cringes::: Yeah, its possible.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: What're the odds?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she smiles and shrugs:::
YarnKittymon: OL: Why do you know his name?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods::: You could say that.
YarnKittymon: TY: Seventy years ago, people used to just get sick and die.
Quantum Catz: DK: Well it's not seventy years ago now
Quantum Catz: ((you could say what?))
Maeve Owens: ((that we know his name))
Maeve Owens: ((i was trying to avoid right out saying, oh yeah we know his name, know the man in fact))
YarnKittymon: OL: ::quietly:: Are you ghosts or something?
YarnKittymon: TY: I know. ::smirks:: Though there's plenty of problems here to balance it out.
Quantum Catz: ((ah, i get it now ^_^))
Maeve Owens: MV: :::bites back a laugh::: If I was then you wouldn't have been able to help me up from the floor.
Quantum Catz: BM: Ghosts? ::autmatically looks at her arm to make sure she's not flickering:: I would't much want to be haunting a hospital if i was
YarnKittymon: OL: ::after a moment:: Actors, then.
Quantum Catz: DK: Yeah, i know ::rubs at one of his eyes::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::looks down at her clothes::: Well, I can understand why you would think that but no. At least not anymore.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::yawns:: I really should get a book on drugs so I can make them myself.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::steps back a step; softly:: My great-grandmother was named Maeve...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Maeve, a rather surprised expression on her face::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::turns a little pale::: Yeah, but not the one married to Donald. Right? :::glances worriedly at Becky:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs and smiles slightly:: Forgiveness can be a great thing, i suppose
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smirks::: Do you plan to forgive him?
Quantum Catz: DK: It would probably help if you just stayed out of trouble and avoided needing drugs right enough
YarnKittymon: OL: ::just watches, puzzled, and a bit scared::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smirk:; Well, i don't plan to marry him so what i do doesn't really matter
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: It was a car accident! Those aren't really preventable; I'm not a bad driver or anything.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::fold her arms::: And do you think I'm planning to? Ha! He can sit in that cell for all I care. :::shakes her head::: Anyway, its probably just a coincidence. Maybe Donald goes and finds another Maeve to take my place.
YarnKittymon: OL: What are you saying? Did you really know my great-grandfather? He's been gone for about 60 years...
Quantum Catz: DK: You'd better not be...if Becky'd been hurt too you'd've been getting a lot more than shouted at
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at maeve and smiles weakly:: How do we explain this to him?
YarnKittymon: TY: You know I'd do anything to keep that from happening. ::pauses:: Keep Becky safe, I mean; I'm not so scared of you.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shrugs::: We aren't even sure its the same guy. It could be a coincidence. So there really isn't anything to explain.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: a coincidence that he has a grandfather called donald quinn who married a woman called maeve? :::looks at Oliver:: I'll try to explain if you tell me one thing ::smirks:: Do you happen to know your great-grandmother's maiden name?
Quantum Catz: BM: Or if she had a thing about fire?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::smirks:: I'd say you should be but Becky'd probably kill me if i got all over-protective on her
YarnKittymon: OL: ::looks a little surprised:: That's what my grandfather could...::quickly cuts himself off:: He was really good at starting kindling.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::glares at Becky::: I think you're having a little too much fun with this. :::whispers::: Besides, I thought we were suppose to be keeping low about the... well you know.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles weakly:: If I let her get hurt, I'd take anything you'd do to me for it.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::mutters::: there isn't any history of ice is there?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::smiles slightly:: Becky's usually pretty good at looking after herself anyway; se did survive on her own for a long time
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: My father...
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, don't go rubbing me our or anything just to prove it.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: I guess he must've made up for the past at some point then
Maeve Owens: MV: :::glares at Becky again::: Okay, so maybe its more than just a coincidence. At least this proves Toby wrong. I wont die for another 30 years maybe.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::looks at Maeve mutely, a strange, sad, scared look on his face::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::shrugs:: I wouldn't hurt Becky either and i think getting rid of her boyfriend kinda falls into that category
Maeve Owens: MV: :::thinks for a moment::: Why would I do that??? The guy almost had us all killed? Maybe I am crazy. :::glances over at Oliver::: Please, stop looking like I'm about to cook you alive.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: I know.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::quietly:: Sorry. Are you saying you really did just come from the past? Like in a time machine?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Not a time machine, no...
YarnKittymon: OL: ::shakes his head:: That's silly. My great-grandmother had red hair.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::tugs on her hair and smirks::: Was once red.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::sits down, looking rather sick, leaning forward::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Oliver:: Are you okay?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she looks over at Becky::: This cant be happening. I am not standing here looking at my great-grandson. I cant be. :::looks back over at Oliver::: Is your great-grandmother still alive? I'm guessing probably not but hey, thou
Maeve Owens: ght I should ask.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::very softly, not looking up:: My grandfather was an orphan at a young age...
YarnKittymon: ((LOL; I was thinking some friends Donald made on the island (the benefits of being a reformed do-gooder ^_^) but that'd be wicked funny))
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sits down as well; sadly::: How young? And why?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: His mother was killed back in the '30s, and his father didn't hold out much longer...his heart gave out just a couple years after that. My grandfather was 4 or 5.
Quantum Catz: BM: Killed? By who?
YarnKittymon: OL: I don't know; I always heard it was about revenge. ::looks down further::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she isn't saying anything, just staring at Oliver::::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: They were really in love with each other. They were happy.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Maeve and smiles weakly:: Maybe you should start being a bit more careful about annoying people
Maeve Owens: MV: :::winces::: It might be too late. :::looks over at Oliver::: Are you a patient here? Do you have Donald's heart problem? :::bites her lip:::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::nods, not looking up:: He was the only guy in the family who made it past 30.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sadly::: I'm sorry Oliver. They still haven't found a way to treat it?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::still looking down:: They try, on Kitar Island, but it didn't work too good for my dad.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Maeve rather sadly::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::soflty::: I'm sorry life didn't work out any better for... everyone.
YarnKittymon: OL: I hope it's all a coincidence and you're not really...her.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::weakly:: A completely different meave with red hair, a notion for fire and a husband called donal d quinn...yeah, that'll be it
Maeve Owens: MV: :::grunts::: Yeah... I think this has passed the point where we can call it coincidence.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::quietly:: Well, maybe you can fix it, now that you know.
Maeve Owens: MV: So we make it all the way to Kitar Island and I'm killed anyway? All of the sudden this trip seems pointless. But hey I get to marry Donald and just maybe spend a little more time with my twin before we are perminitely seperated
Maeve Owens: MV: :::frowning::: Fix it? Nah, it'd probably get worse. Who knows what the next death could be.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::after a long pause:: You don't even like my great-grandfather right now, right? You don't have to fall in love with him, do you? Then you won't get hurt.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::;smirks::: And if I dont, have you realized that you wont be born?
YarnKittymon: OL: Maybe I'll be born to someone else. Maybe I'll die when I'm 40 instead of 25.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::cringes::: Good point, maybe we'd be doing everyone a favor. ::::looks at him sadly::: I'm sorry.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::smiles weakly:: Maybe I'll get lucky. Maybe they can help me here, if they don't call the cops on me first.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sniffs::: yeah we have a family history of landing in prisons. ::smiles weakly at him::: Owe, that hurts. My family down the road wishing for a different history.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::shakes his head:: It's not that. Dad was great; I guess I wouldn't want to trade him for anyone. ::shakes his head again:: I was worrying about *you.*
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles weakly::: Well, then we're even. :::looks over at Becky, biting her lip::: Someone's going to notice sooner or later and I'm just wondering if they do. Find out.
YarnKittymon: : ::a nurse comes to the doorway:: Oliver?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::stands rather shakily; glances back at Maeve and Becky:: Take care...
Quantum Catz: ((they wouldn't stop treating him just for him *being* a variant would they?))
Maeve Owens: MV: :::looks a little panicked::: Um wait, how long are you going to be?
YarnKittymon: OL: Probably an hour.
YarnKittymon: ((Word on the island is that this hospital treats variants like normal people, but that might be a lie ^^; ))
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods::: If we're still here, will you come back?
BM: ::softly:: We probably will be, Toby was worse off than you
YarnKittymon: OL: ::a little puzzled:: Sure.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles at him:::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::puts his hands in his pockets and then follows the nurse out::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::her gaze fixes on a spot on the floor and she zones out:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the ground, rather depressed by the thought of her friend's future::

Quantum Catz: DK: ::walks back into the waiting room:: Hey, what happened to that Oliver guy? You didn't scare him off did you?
Maeve34: MV: :::still staring at a spot on the floor and she doesn't look up when he enters::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up:: Uh, the nurse called him away
Quantum Catz: DK: Oh...right... ::glances at Maeve:: Are you okay?
Maeve34: MV: For someone who only has a couple of more years to live? Yeah I'm just peachy.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks confused:: What?
Maeve34: MV: At least now I can trust that you wont be dropping me back in a jail cell.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::still looks confused:: What are you talking about?
Quantum Catz: DK: I never said i *would* drop you in a jail cell
Maeve34: MV: :::smirks::: Maybe not but you implied it.
Quantum Catz: DK: So ar eyou going to explain the couple of years left to live thing, or not?
Maeve34: MV: :::sighs::: Oliver is my great-grandson who is in there right now determining how much longer *he* has left to live. And that is how I know how much longer I have left to live.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::frowns for a moment at Maeve, glancing at Beck for confirmation as if he doesn't really believe it:: So you're saying that guy's your great-grandson and you just spent the last quarter of an hour being told your future?
Maeve34: MV: :::nods::: Pretty much.
Quantum Catz: DK: Yeah, cos that happens all the time when i go through time
Maeve34: MV: :::glances up at him::: Do I detect an underlining tone of sarcasm in your voice?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::rolls his eyes:: Not at all
Maeve34: MV: Uh-huh. Sure.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Let's not talk about this...it's not like we can do anything about it
Maeve34: MV: :::smirks and looks away::::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: Toby's up if you want to go see him
Maeve34: MV: :::glances back to Becky::: Go ahead, I'll stay here. I'm sure you want some alone time with him. ::::grins:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::makes a face at Maeve:: Cheers...but you can come too if you want
Maeve34: MV: :::still grinning::: Nah, I wouldn't want to get in the way.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::rolls her eyes, though she can't help but smile; jokingly:: What d'you think i plan to do with him? And in front of the nurses too
Maeve34: MV: ::::holds up her hands::: Hey, what you and Toby are into is your business and not mine.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::laughs:: Well, think what you want - i'm going to see him - you can stay here if you want
Maeve34: MV: :::chuckles:: Yeah, I think it might be safer... far away from the sufficating mushiness.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::rolls her eyes as she heads for the door:: You've never felt the need to complain about our 'suffocating mushiness' before; cya later then
Maeve34: MV: :::under her breath::: Thats because I figured if you were gonna hurt me for it the best place to start would be in a hospital.
Quantum Catz: : ::Dominick hears her and chuckles tough Becky just turns and shoots a grin at Maeve:: Well, hey, if we're talking about guys...just wait till you meet Donald again
Maeve34: MV: ::::sticks her tongue out at her::::
YarnKittymon: : ::an older man pushes the waiting room door open, leaning heavily on his cane::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::Backs away from the door to let him past::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man walks to the far wall and pulls back a set of double-doors to reveal a TV; he turns it on and it broadcasts tiny images of better quality than any film Maeve's ever seen::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::asks Dominick what room Toby's in as the man does this and then leaves the room::
Maeve34: MV: :::she gasps and gets up to move closer to the TV.:::: What is that?
Maeve34: MV: :::is looking in awe at the TV. She presses one of the buttons and the picture goes away::: I killed it! ::::she presses it again::: It's alive! :::presses it again::: Oh nope, its dead again.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::rolls his eyes:: That's the power button, Maeve
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks at Maeve with a strange expression:: Haven't you ever seen a television before?
Maeve34: MV: :::presses another one of the buttons and the channel goes up:::: Oooooh, lots of pretty pictures. :::she glances briefly at the guy and she shakes her head::: No. :::goes back to playing with it::::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks at Maeve without his expression changing:: Find a news program, would you, sweetie?
Maeve34: MV: ::::she catches a glimpse of a gorgeous blue eyed hunk with raven black hair. Theres a petite brown haired woman standing next to him::: Whats a news station? :::the people on the screen walk through a set of glass double doors labeled "Remington Steele Investigations:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smiles weakly:: Like on the radio, when they announced what happened in the day.
Maeve34: MV: ::::nods::: Oooh. One of those. :::reluctantly she changes the channel, leaving behind her blue eyed hunk and stops on a channel that says "News":::: That one?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods, looking at his watch:: Thank you. ::sits down across from the TV, squinting at it through his glasses::
Maeve34: MV: ::: maneuvers herself into a chair closest to the TV and continues to stare at the pretty pictures in awe:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man pauses:: Could you turn the volume up, please?
Maeve34: MV: :::pushes the button thats labled volume::::
YarnKittymon: : ::voices come out of the television, and the screen shifts to a weather report; it's going to rain this afternoon::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::reaches Toby's door and peers in:: Heya, how you doing?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::moves to sit in one of the chairs, half watching the tv although not out of any real interest::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles up at Becky:: Hi! I'm all right; how are you?
Maeve34: MV: :::her mouth drops open in awe::: Does that guy on there have a power to sense weather conditions or something?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smiles:: Just guessing, like an almanac.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles as she moves towards his bed:: Okay...got a bit of a sore neck from sleeping in a chair tho
Maeve34: MV: Whats an alamanac?
YarnKittymon: TY: You could've gotten a place to stay...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks at Maeve blankly:: Those have been around for hundreds of years, little lady. It's a book that predicts the weather, the growing seasons...stuff for farmers.
Maeve34: MV: ::::shrugs::: I cant help it if I've never heard of one.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Nah, i was talking to Dominick anyway...and he's got a comfy shoulder
YarnKittymon: : Well, next time you go to a bookstore, you should pick one up.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: Mine's better.
Maeve34: MV: ::::grins::: Yeah, because reading about farming is so interesting.
Quantum Catz: BM: Well, yeah, but here you are lying around with a comfy bed to yourself ::grabs a chair and pulls it over to the bed::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smiles::
YarnKittymon: : ::the lady on the news continues:: In other news, strange happeninigs in Minnesota today, where a man has apparently been controlling people's minds. Authorities think he's a freak, and he's been incarcerated for further
YarnKittymon: testing. Back to you, Tom.
YarnKittymon: TY: You could've come up and shared; we just would've had to move the IVs.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::makes a disapproving sound when he hears about the variant although he doesn't actually comment::
Maeve34: MV: :::she frowns at the screen::::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man murmurs:: Scary, isn't it?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: I'd probably have had to argue with the nurses again...and i doubt Dominick would've appreciated me abandoning him in the waiting room for the night when he brought us here and all
YarnKittymon: TY: ::carefully takes Becky's hand, taking care to keep from dislodging his IV:: So I guess I'll have to settle for this.
Maeve34: MV: ::::she slowly nods her head:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly:: What's so scary about it?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man cringes:: That they might be among us, controlling us, even now, and we wouldn't even know it.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::squeezes his hand:: What have the doctor's said? Are you okay?
YarnKittymon: TY: They want to keep me another day, to make sure. Then they'll send me home for some rest. ::smirks::
Maeve34: MV: :::she looks back and forth between the two of them::: Well, I was thinking more along the lines that it would be scary to just be thrown into some place just because your different. Not that I know anythnig about that or anyth
Maeve34: ing.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::quietly:: I think its kinda scary what they might do to that man to prove he's a freak
Maeve34: MV: :::quietly::: That too.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man frowns:: Well, he's a criminal, isn't he?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: You are going to rest you know - even if i have to tie you to a bed somewhere and i don't care how kinky that sounds
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: But even if we just wait quietly in a hotel room we seem to still get into trouble.
Quantum Catz: DK: Cos people say he's been controlling them? Who says he even really is?
Maeve34: MV: I don't like the news. Its depressing. Lets go back to the guy with the blue eyes.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Well we're not on the run right now which helps
YarnKittymon: : ::the man taps his cane once on the ground:: Let's just watch the sports scores first, all right?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles, then looks away:: But a couple years from now I'll be caught.
Maeve34: MV: :::shrugs:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Well not you personally...the old you...younger you... ::sighs:: You know what i mean
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I wouldn't change that, though...
YarnKittymon: : ::the sports is over in a few minutes, featuring a lot of activities Maeve is unfamiliar with::
Maeve34: MV: :::shakes her head::: Whoa.I dont think I want to go home.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks up at Maeve, raising his eyebrows::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: What teenager would believe it anyway? Besides, if you did want to...i don't think Dominick would be too happy
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly:: Well, you're going to
Maeve34: MV: What? :::remembers the labs now and frowns::: Then again I dont want to stay here either.
Maeve34: ((and the what was directed towards the old guy))
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: Christa would probably still be in the labs, then, and I wouldn't've met you. Some things turned out better.
YarnKittymon: : ::suddenly:: Where are you from?
Maeve34: MV: Ireland.
YarnKittymon: : Are you going to fly back there?
Maeve34: MV: ::frowns::: Fly? I cant fly. Besides I'm not going back.
Quantum Catz: BM: Yeah...and Maeve'd be dead... ::hesitates, frowning slightly, as she considers what to tell Toby about what happened::
YarnKittymon: : But if that's your home, you can take a plane. ::grins:: Like Lindbergh.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Becky; softly:: What's wrong?
Quantum Catz: DK: We live out West - Ireland's just where she used to live
Maeve34: MV: :::her frown deepens::: Whats a plane?
Maeve34: ((im right about them not having planes back then right?))
Quantum Catz: BM: We met this guy...we think he was Maeve's great-grandson if you can believe that
YarnKittymon: ((Nope; they were invented in 1903, and were very occasionally used for passenger travel in the late 1920s. Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic in 1927 and it was very big news))
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks at Maeve, then laughs:: Funny.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::eyes widen:: Do you really think that could be true?
Maeve34: ((well darn...))
YarnKittymon: ((If it's any consolation, they were almost never used for passengers across the Atlantic, and really rarely cross-country, either; they were more of a novelty))
Maeve34: ((i knew i shoud have asked before I said anything))
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: His great-grandfather was called Donald Quinn and he married a red-head called Maeve...and some of his family had quite a iking for fire and ice....
Maeve34: ((yeah but its probably impossible for her to have no heard about it... i mean i doubt she listened to the radio or read any papers but still))
YarnKittymon: ((Yes, I did, and yes, she would've heard...even the Mickey Mouse cartoon "Plane Crazy" (came out in 1928, though probably later than they're in right now) had a lengthy Lindbergh reference))
YarnKittymon: TY: ::after a moment:: Was he nice?
Maeve34: MV: :::she grins:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::puts her hand to her chest:: He's got a problem with his heart....he's probably going to die before he's even 25 - all of his family have had it ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: : ::after a moment:: Well, what brought you to Philadelphia?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks rather surprised:: Oh...::looks down:: No wonder Donald...took us...
Maeve34: MV: We needed a hospital.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: His grandfather was orphaned when he was just a kid....
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks concerned:: What for?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods; quietly:: I guess so...
Quantum Catz: DK: ::quickly:: Pranged our car, that's all
Maeve34: MV: :::she points down at her leg::: Because of that and a friend of mine who is still stuck in bed.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: No, he was *orphaned*...Maeve's son was orphaned...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods:: Sorry to hear that.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::eyes widen:: She married him?
Maeve34: MV: :::smiles:::
Quantum Catz: BM: Can you think of any other red-heads called Maeve he could've married?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks down; after a little while:: What are we going to do about it?
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't know if there's anything we can do...Maeve wasn't very into going off and preventing it...
YarnKittymon: TY: Why not? She doesn't want to die, does she?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: She joked that her next death would probably end up even worse
YarnKittymon: TY: Do you at least know when it happened?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man is quiet for a while:: My Emmie's in here too; I hope she'll be all right.
Maeve34: MV: Oh? What is she in here for?
YarnKittymon: : Just a checkup, but when you get to be our age, you never know what might happen.
Quantum Catz: BM: When her son's just a kid... ::shrugs:: How much detail do you remember your great-grandparents' history in?
Maeve34: MV: :::she nods, frowning a little::: Yeah.
YarnKittymon: TY: One of my ancestors was supposed to have been on the Mayflower, and that's about it. ::shakes his head:: We have to figure it out.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: I know this sounds horrible...but who'd really want to live to see their husband die and their son die as well...before he's even 25?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::cringes:: Well, maybe...maybe we can help fix that too.
YarnKittymon: : ::after a moment, the man says:: Go ahead and change the channel, dear.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::gently:: You can fix congenital heart defects now too?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: If a doctor could see what was wrong...if there was just a hole or something, and they opened him up, I could fix *that*...
Maeve34: MV: :::she glances at him and smiles before reaching over to push the down button. She finds the station again and grins:::: They dont look this good at home. :::she sighs::::
YarnKittymon: : Do you live in the country?
Maeve34: MV: :::she shakes her head no, her eyes fixed on the screen:::
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't know what happens to us in the future...but don't you think if you could've done something you would've?
YarnKittymon: : ::looks like he's about to say something, then shakes his head, silently::
YarnKittymon: TY: A library. Maybe that would have an obituary or something.
Maeve34: MV: :::sees him shaking his head and she glances at him briefly::: What?
YarnKittymon: : You really *aren't* from around here, are you?
Maeve34: MV: Yeah things just look different.
YarnKittymon: : So how'd you get here?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly, looking at her hands:: You can't keep changing things everytime you get a bad hand...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Then why'd you tell me?
Maeve34: MV: ::::the couple on the screen kiss and maeve smirks, apparently not hearing the man::: Lucky woman.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Maeve probably would anyway...she told Dominick
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks at the man:: We got here by car...that's how we ended up pranging it... Is it really any of your business anyway?
Maeve34: MV: :::the show goes into commercil break and she frowns, pressing the buttons::: Where'd it go?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: Why does everything bad happen to her?
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't know...she doesn't deserve it...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man frowns:: It's a commercial. How can you not be accustomed to those?
YarnKittymon: TY: I can't...think she was just fated to have bad things happen, that we should let them come.
Maeve34: MV: Well yeah but why do they have to put the useless things on this box too?
Quantum Catz: BM: Well...if we know it's coming ::shrugs:: Maybe even just knowing'll change the way things turn out...make her...make us...act differently at some point somewhere
YarnKittymon: : What year were you born?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::coughs, as if he's clearing his throat...trying to remind Maeve to think this one out::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I'll be keeping an eye on her, anyway.
Maeve34: MV: ::::still pushing the buttons::: 1909. :::the seconds she says she freezes and after a pause she says quickly::: Was the year I would have liked to have been born...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks closely at Maeve, then Dominick:: Your eyes...you did it, didn't you?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::frowns:: Sorry?
Maeve34: MV: ::::frowns::: Did what?
YarnKittymon: : Traveled through time, somehow. Brought her from the past.
Quantum Catz: DK: You what? I think you're losing your head, mate. Just cos she didn't get a telly in her house...
Maeve34: MV: :::suddenly::: I'm Amish... and my people... believe in reincarnation... :::nods::: yeah... so my former self was born in 1909 but was killed early on in life.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man laughs, and, with an effort, gets to his feet:: I'll believe one or the other, little lady.
Quantum Catz: BM: :smiles slightly:: I guess we both will...although maybe she'll start looking out for herself as well
Maeve34: MV: :::shrugs::: The past life is more believable seeing that everyone in my family dies early on in life.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: Well, at least we don't have to worry about her for at least another nine months...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man shakes his head:: Nice try. ::slowly walks towards the door::
Maeve34: MV: :::frowns::: Why do I have a feeling something bad is going to happen now.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::Softly:: Where are you going?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks back, frowning:: To the front door.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly:: I wouldn't want you to go around flinging about false accusations about variants and time travel
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: I doubt it went that far with them yet...we've at least got until Donald finds his way out of jail and gets Maeve to forgive him
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: That's a little something.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks back at Dominick:: If I'm just a crazy old man you have nothing to fear.
Maeve34: MV: :::winces::: I don't like the sound of that.
Quantum Catz: DK: Yeah well...that guy on the news might be innocent too...but that won't stop them testing him to see, will it?
Maeve34: MV: :::cringes::: I don't like tests.
YarnKittymon: : ::shrugs:: There's places for people like you, and this isn't one of them.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::Stands up:: I'm not a variant, mister, and i don't appreciate being called one
Maeve34: MV: :::bites her lip, looking between the both of them:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles back weakly:: Can you imagine how much harder it'd be getting to the island if Maeve was pregnant as well?
YarnKittymon: : Then what about your eyes?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins for a moment, then looks down:: She'd probably get weird cravings...for olives or whatever...
Quantum Catz: ((hell...reasonable excuse...reasonable excuse...y isn't he wearing contacts? *sigh* can he have funny eyes and no powers? like a parent was a variant or something?))
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: We'd be stopping at shops for her half the time...plus she'd probably stil find ways of getting into trouble too....
YarnKittymon: ((That would be possible, if you can explain why he hates variants. ^_- Variant rights sympathizers of course might wear contacts, but that's a problem here.))
Quantum Catz: ((of course i can explai :P))
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles sadly; softly:: I think I can make olives, anyway.
YarnKittymon: ((I'm sure it would be unlikely, granted, but it could happen. :D ))
YarnKittymon: ((The red eyes, I mean; I'm sure you have a perfectly good explanation ^^;;; ))
Quantum Catz: ((so can he have red eyes but no powers?))
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns slightly at Toby:: Are you okay?
YarnKittymon: ((Yup))
Quantum Catz: DK: ::a dark expression crosses his face:: Variant blood's a hard thing to get rid of...even if all you get's their eyes
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: When Christa was pregnant she liked olives, is all.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks a bit surprised:: How?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates and then asks, looking rather pale:: Christa was pregnant? In the labs?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::shrugs, a grimace crossing his face:: My father was one...God i hated that guy... People always think i'm one too...just like him...
YarnKittymon: :TY: ::nods:: They think it was Clayton's, but of course they didn't even let her deliver it alive...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man frowns:: I'm...sorry...
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: S why i didn't like them assuming that guy on tv was one... I've got red eyes...big deal...it's all i've got...maybe that guy was just realy persuasive
Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces:: They didn't even keep it alive to like... ::pauses and grimaces:: use it?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man goes to sit back down, glancing at Maeve:: And you?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: No...maybe the baby was better off, but Christa was heartbroken. She went crazy for a bit.
Maeve34: MV: What about me?
YarnKittymon: : Are you just mad, or what?
Maeve34: MV: I much prefer the word insane. Being called mad makes it seem like I am always in a bad mood. Which I dont know why people would say that because I'm rarely not.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man just shakes his head weakly:: They have drugs for that, you know.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::smirks::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I could understand that
Maeve34: MV: :::waves her hand::: Drugs are no fun. Unless they're the kind that makes the pain disappear. But then those can also be a little scary because then you think your leg is missing.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Maybe all the girls around me are just doomed.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man sighs, leaning back in the chair:: Insane.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Oh great...thanks for that
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: I'll do anything I can to keep that from happening.
Maeve34: MV: ::::with some difficulty she gets out of her chair and onto her crutches::: Well, maybe its time to go bust in on Toby and Becky. :::smiles at Dominck and heads for the hallway:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: You know what...before you helped me i could never have a family...i could never grow up...get married...any of that...i was just stuck like a ghost....i've never got the feeling i was doomed since you turned up
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs and rolls his eyes:: I guess so ::follows her, glancing at the man:: See you round
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly, not looking at Becky:: Do you think you'll ever want to?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods:: Get some contacts or dark glasses.
Maeve34: MV: :::gets to the elevator and punches the up button:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::smiles weakly:: I've got some...i guess i just didn't have time to put them on when i left the house
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods again:: Hope everything works out, then.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Someone once asked me...if i ever thought about it and i said no....but i'm like more than thirty years old...it's...something....you do think about....but i don't know...i don't want to settle down right now anyway
Quantum Catz: DK: Thanks ::runs to catch up with Maeve::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: No worries about that; I'm a lot younger than you, yet.
Maeve34: MV: :::a few minutes later she is knocking on Toby's door::: Is it safe to come in?
Quantum Catz: BM: :::smiles:: Yeah, sure, Maeve
Maeve34: MV: :::she comes in grinning at Toby::: I just came by to gloat. Seeing that i am up and walking about and you're stuck in bed.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiling weakly:: Nice to see you too.
Maeve34: MV: :::chuckles::: I was just kidding. :::comes to stand on the other side of his bed::::How are you feeling?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::stands in the doorway::
YarnKittymon: TY: I should be out tomorrow, so you won't have to sit here bored anymore. You guys can go if you want...see the town, stay in a hotel...
Maeve34: MV: :::smirks::: You remember what happened the last time we saw this town?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::weryly:: I don't thin causing more trouble's the best way to get healthy again....s a good thing i'm such a good liar
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Dominick, eyebrows raised:: A good liar?
Maeve34: MV: :::smirks::: Well at least I was able to convince him I was insane...
Quantum Catz: DK: This old guy talked to Maeve and decided that i brought her here from the past...he's a pretty good guesser, i'll give him that
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins:: I'll bet Maeve just said something stupid. It's too bad she's free to limp around the hospital; she might not get in so much trouble in a bed.
Maeve34: MV: :::glares at Toby::: So I let one little thing slip! I wasn't even paying attention. :::grumpily::: I was too focussed on the box thing.

YarnKittymon: TY: ::smirks:: TV, huh? Did you like it?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods::: Uh-huh.
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, what are you guys gonna do while I'm stuck here? I don't think they'd let you stay in here with me all day, even if you wouldn't be bored to death trying.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shrugs::: Annoy the locals?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::shrugs:: I doubt Maeve's up for much walking about
Quantum Catz: DK: Or at least that's what the nurses'd say
Maeve Owens: MV: If its walking about somewhere that doesn't house needle pricking maniacs... I'm up for it.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: You never know; we *are* in Philadelphia.
Maeve Owens: ((whats that suppose to mean?))
YarnKittymon: ((He's joking that it's a bad neighborhood and there might be homeless people around with syringes. ^_^; ))
Maeve Owens: ((ooooh))
YarnKittymon: ((Either that or it means they doped him up too well in the hospital :D ))
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles::: he heh
YarnKittymon: : ::a doctor comes to the door, looking up at the visitors:: Pardon me. I need to examine his wound.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::stands up:: I guess we'd better go then...
YarnKittymon: : ::the doctor looks back at them:: He should be released tomorrow morning, but you'll have to keep him off his feet for at least a few days.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::nods and then smiles at Toby:: I'll make sure he rests
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins, not speaking his mind::
Quantum Catz: DK: Come on, let's leave the doctor to do his job. See you later, Toby
Maeve Owens: MV: :::heads towards the door::: Have fun.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, smirking:: You too.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::grins:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the doctor gives them a look that shoos them out::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::waves:: See you soon ::and then heads out the door as well::
Maeve Owens: MV: So... where are we going to adventure off to?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Where do you want to go? Didn't you want to wait for Oliver?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::frowns:: Oh yeah. I forgot about that. :::shrugs:: I dont know. He might not even be around anymore.
Quantum Catz: BM: Yeah, i guess
Maeve Owens: MV: He didn't exactly seemed thrilled to stay around and chat anyway.
Quantum Catz: BM: Well, yeah...it was probably a pretty weird conversation for him...
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods::: yeah.
Maeve Owens: MV: But I'd at least like to know if he got good news. Or maybe I dont want to find out because its most likely bad news. :::shrugs:::
Quantum Catz: BM: We could check and see if he's in the waiting room...
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods:: Yeah, I guess we could.
YarnKittymon: : ::the old man has left the waiting room, but Oliver is there, in a corner, and it's clear he didn't get good news; he glances up when they come in but can't say anything::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::pauses in the doorway..not sure what to say::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she pauses next to Becky, looking rather crushed... not sure if he wants to see them or not::::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::after a long pause:: My plane doesn't go back to California 'til Friday. Do you want to do something before then?
Maeve Owens: MV: Sure. I'd love to. :::she glances over at Becky:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: We've not got anything else planned
YarnKittymon: OL: ::stands up; quietly:: Do you want to go back with me? Meet my mother?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly:: Is that such a good idea?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::looks back, frowning:: Why wouldn't it be?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smirks::: He's worried that we might change history and I might actually live.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: But if you died in the past, how could I help you?
Maeve Owens: MV: Because we're going back to the past. Soon.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::quietly:: Oh.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shrugs::: I'd still like to go back with you. If you really want to that is.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: OL: I do...if you can.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods::: I can. :;:points over her shoulder at Dominick::: He's just going to have to live with it. :::grins:::
Quantum Catz: DK: Well considering you're supposed to be dead in the first place i don't think this'll make much difference
YarnKittymon: OL: ::nods, looking relieved:: I didn't...want to go alone.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::gives him a sad smile:::
YarnKittymon: OL: Do you want to do something now, then? Go buy the plane tickets? ::shrugs:: I guess it doesn't really matter what we do.
Maeve Owens: MV: Well, we cant actually leave until Toby gets released... :::;glances over at Becky again:::
Quantum Catz: BM: Where exactly is your mother, oliver?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: Farther West than California, not so far as Hawaii.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: You mean...kitar island?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::nods just a tiny bit::
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh hey! Whaddya know! Thats where we were headed before taking our little detour.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: It's going to be a lot of effort to get you guys on a plane without being stopped
Maeve Owens: MV: Why?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: I don't know if we should talk about this here. I have a room down the street...
Quantum Catz: DK: Why? You'll need ID, you'll need money...
Maeve Owens: MV: Whats an ID?
Quantum Catz: DK: Identification...something to say you are who you say you are
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Toby can do all that once he's better...
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: I gues
YarnKittymon: OL: ::nods:: We'll figure it out later. Let's go do something now, all right?
Maeve Owens: MV: Okay. Where to?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::smiles weakly:: I don't care. Just away from here.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles::: Hatred for hospitals must run in the family. :::;glances over at the other two::: Any ideas on where we should go? Or should we just start walking?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: Doesn't matter. Just kill some time before we go back. ::shakes his head:: Nice choice of words, huh?
Quantum Catz: BM: You shouldn't walk to much with your knee
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shrugs::: I've walked on it before.
Quantum Catz: BM: YEah but you need to give it *some* time to heal...
YarnKittymon: OL: We can just go back to my room and watch TV for four days, then.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::::smiles brightly::: Now that I wouldn't mind.
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't want to go too far from Toby though
YarnKittymon: OL: I'm just down the street, not far at all. It's not like I can drive or anything.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::nods:: Okay then...

YarnKittymon: : ::Toby gets out of the hospital on Tuesday, and he and Maeve recuperate; Maeve is just about better by the time Friday rolls around::
YarnKittymon: : ::they get onto the plane with little incident; Toby's fake IDs passed the passing glance of the ticket clerk, and they wait for it to take off::
Maeve Owens: :::Maeve folds herself into the window seat so she can stare out the window in awe. She was pretty much in awe over everything.::::
YarnKittymon: : ::Toby seems a bit uncomfortable about being on the plane, but doesn't comment, and Oliver still looks heartbroken, but doesn't say much for the whole flight::
Quantum Catz: ::Becky hasn't been on a plane before either and quite enjoys looking out of the window at the view. Dominick stays fairly quiet during the flight::
YarnKittymon: : ::they land in Los Angeles without incident, and take a shuttle to Rellins; Oliver is nervous the whole way, and Toby's not much better::
Quantum Catz: ((why is toby nervous?))
YarnKittymon: ((Because they're headed towards Rellins, a place that presumably mostly freaks go, and because he's more or less saying goodbye to modern technologies soon after, he presumes))
Quantum Catz: ((ah right))
Quantum Catz: ::Becky smiles and holds Toby's hand on the way there, to try and comfort him a bit::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles weakly at Becky, almost as if to say, "Look what I'll go through for you."::
Maeve Owens: ::::is wondering why everyone is so darn nervous but gets distracted by the passing scenery:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the shuttle stops in Rellins, near the coast, after a four-hour drive through massive traffic; they can see the island to the west; in the night, its pink Gate glows like a beacon::
Maeve34: MV: :::stares to the west at the big pink beacon::: I'm not sure I want to go to a place with giant pink gates...
Quantum Catz: BM: They're to stop technology being taken in, i think
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: It's my home. You can be who you are there.
Maeve34: MV: :::frowns::: So now I really can say I live in an Amish community?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: More or less.
Maeve34: MV: :::her frown deepens::: No hope for a TV then?
Quantum Catz: BM: Nope, no TV
Maeve34: MV: :::wrinkles her nose::: Whats good about this place again?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::quietly:: You don't have to be so afraid, is all. ::walks towards the docks at the water's edge, slowly, dragging his suitcase::
Maeve34: MV: :::scowls down at the water::::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks at Maeve:: What's up with you? It's not a very long boat ride
Maeve34: MV: :::her eyes widen::: Boat? Wait a minute. No one said anything about a boat.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::looks back at Maeve; softly:: It's an *island.*
Maeve34: MV: :::frowns::: I know that! What happened to planes?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::weakly:: That'd be great; the Gate blows up everything that's too technological. Flying a plane through *that*...
Maeve34: MV: :::frowns::: Oh.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::rolls his eyes:: We got off the plane
Maeve34: MV: :::smirks::; No? Really? I hadn't noticed. :::angrily::: Why dont they have one that takes you to the island?
Quantum Catz: BM: I can take you to the island, Maeve
Maeve34: MV: :::glances up at Becky, sighing in relief::: Really? That wouldn't be too far?
Quantum Catz: BM: Well, considering i've done next to nothing for the past week, i don't think a trip to the island's going to wear me out too much
Maeve34: MV: Thats good. Because I really, *really* do not want to get on a boat.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks back at Becky; softly:: Be careful, then.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: I can handle a couple of hours on the island
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles a little:: I hope so. ::nods his head:: Then we'll see you ladies later.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at maeve:: You ready then?
Maeve34: MV: :::nods::: Yeah.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::reaches out to touch Maeve and, with a slight wave at the guys, teleports them to just outside the gate::
YarnKittymon: : ::the Gate is actually a glowing pink mist, very intimidating up close, about 20 feet high and nearly as wide; there's two ordinary-looking guards standing outside, armed with swords, and they look taken-aback to see two people
YarnKittymon: appear in front of them::
Maeve34: MV: :::glances at the guards and gulps::: Maybe that wasn't such a good idea.
Quantum Catz: BM: It's okay...we just have to go through the gate
YarnKittymon: : ::the nearer guard nods nervously:: Do you have any electronic devices on your person?
Maeve34: MV: Why do they have guards?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::to the guard:: No, we don't ::to Maeve:: That's kinda why...they're a bit against technology
Maeve34: MV: :::stares at the guy, her mouth slightly open::: Are you sure thats the case? I mean once you go in they let you back out right? ::::shakes her head::: Of course they let you back out, Oliver got out. But do they let everyone ba
Maeve34: ck out? Or hold some of them hostage?
Quantum Catz: BM: Why would they hold them hostage?
YarnKittymon: : ::the far guard looks rather sympathetic:: She's from a lab, isn't she? I promise, it's all right.
Maeve34: MV: :::shrugs::: I dont know. Their guards and they have swords.
YarnKittymon: ((I dunno how much stuff they managed to keep; they kinda left Donald's car wrecked, didn't they? Or did they get their things back?))
Quantum Catz: BM: That's to stop people they don't want going in...to protect the people on the island...all we have to do is go through the gate...
Quantum Catz: ((i have no idea.... ^^; ))
Maeve34: MV: :::weakly::: Well, at least they wont have guns.
Quantum Catz: ((no wait! she needs ehr stuff - dan gave her his book!))
YarnKittymon: ((OK, then they got it back somehow. :D ))
Quantum Catz: ((yay! ^_^))
Quantum Catz: BM: Come on...it'll be an hour or so before the others get here...we can at least spend it in town rather than out here
Maeve34: MV: :::nods her head slowly, still eyeing the guards::::
YarnKittymon: : ::the farther guard smiles at Maeve:: Don't worry, miss; you'll like it in there. No one'll lock you up.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::starts to move towards the gate, glancing back at Maeve so see if she's following::
Maeve34: MV: :::smiles weakly at the guard and follows behind Becky:::
YarnKittymon: : ::they go through the pink mist and nothing happens; they find themselves looking at a rustic area with some brick buildings, the rest stone or wooden; it looks like a cross between the Old West and an idealized medieval European village::
YarnKittymon: : ::the people around are mostly dressed in vaguely modern clothes, though a few have more rugged clothing; about a third of the women are in dresses, with half of those in pretty, long dresses, and the other half in 1990s-style dresses or skirts::
Maeve34: MV: :::she glances around::: Well this is different. Now I feel like I've been to three different worlds. Ours, the one in Phili and now this. Does it look like this in the past too?
Quantum Catz: BM: I've not been to it in the past...but it probably does
Quantum Catz: BM: Or at least something like this
Maeve34: MV: :::nods:::
Quantum Catz: BM: So, d'you want to explore the town?
Maeve34: MV: Yeah. Sure. We wont lose the guys will we?
Quantum Catz: BM: We can come back here in about an hour or so and meet up with them again
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a money-changing place very near the Gate, and farther ahead, several eating establishments; to the right is a registration station, but it appears to be closed for the night::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a few lanterns up to light the town, and the Gate lights what's in their sight, but beyond it looks darker::
Maeve34: MV: :::nods::: Okay then. I'll just follow you. :::glances around her:::
Quantum Catz: BM: Well it's not like i know this place that well, i've never stayed for much longer than a day or so
YarnKittymon: : ::there's an inviting looking cafe up ahead, well-lit with lanterns every six feet or so, and a man nearby is hawking his hotel as a good place to spend the night::
Quantum Catz: BM: WE'll need to change some money if we're going to spend any though
Maeve34: MV: Okay.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::heads for the money changing building::
YarnKittymon: : ::they get the money without incident::
YarnKittymon: : ::they go sit in the brightly-lit cafe to wait soon afterwards; they can nearly see the Gate from the outdoor patio::
YarnKittymon: : ::the patio's nearly deserted except for a couple and a rather pretty, older woman, who's facing the way the Gate is; she's wearing a tunic and has very long graying hair and huge ears that look just like a mouse's; her face appears to have a couple red stripes on either side::
Maeve34: MV: :::she sees the woman and nudges Becky::: Hey, do you think she's related to Oliver? She has the same stripes he does. But red.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks over:: It could be his mother
YarnKittymon: : : :the woman doesn't look over, but speaks in a low, pretty voice, loud enough for them to hear:: How do you know him?
Maeve34: MV: :::bites her lip, looking at Becky::: Oops. I guess she heard that.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly and then says to the woman:: He's on his way now...we didn't take the boat so he's a bit behind us
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman looks over, smiling, though there's something sad in it; after a moment, she gets up and sits next to them; softly:: Thank you for coming with him.
Maeve34: MV: :::smiles::: Well, we were kind of heading here anyway.
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman nods, then glances at Becky:: I didn't catch your name, though. I'm Paelith Quinn.
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm Becky
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman nods:: Pleased to meet you. ::looks back at Maeve:: And this is something rare indeed...
Maeve34: MV: ::::smiles weakly, glancing back and forth::: What? You know who I am?
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::nods:: It's not every day I see one of my husband's ancestors.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::surprised:: How do you know that?
Maeve34: MV: ::::looks just as suprised as Becky:::
YarnKittymon: PQ: I was worried about Oliver, and I heard his thoughts. I heard...almost everything that happened. As to how I told you two apart...I just knew. You look a bit like him.
Quantum Catz: BM: You can read thoughts?
YarnKittymon: PQ: If I concentrate, yes. Don't worry; I'll respect your privacy.
Maeve34: MV: :::sits there quietly, fidgeting a little:::
Quantum Catz: BM: It's okay...i know someone else who can do that too...
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::nods to Maeve; softly:: It truly is an honor to meet you, Mrs. Quinn.
Quantum Catz: ((an honor?))
Maeve34: MV: :::cringes a little::: It's not Mrs. Quinn... yet anyway.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smirks slightly::
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: You won't come to regret the decision, I don't think. I haven't, even though Oliver's going to Elohim soon.
Maeve34: MV: Elohim?
YarnKittymon: ((As for the honor thing, though (or perhaps because) she's Jewish, she has a respect for ancestors))
YarnKittymon: PQ: You call Him Jehovah.
Maeve34: MV: :::sadly, looking down::: Oh, yeah. That...
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: I just want to see him again.
Quantum Catz: BM: He'll be here soon
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: I can hear his heartbeat when he's near, you know. It's...getting worse.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I'm sorry...
Maeve34: MV: :::quietly::: I'm sorry..
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::smiles weakly:: It's not your fault...I suspect if it weren't for the both of you, he'd never have been born.
Quantum Catz: BM: Well it's not really much to do with me
Maeve34: MV: :::looks pointedly at Becky::: Umm.. Becky do you remember why we were on the run in the first place? If it wasn't for you I wouldnt be alive to marry Donald.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: You will still marry him, won't you? Even now that you know...?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: That was Toby's idea though
Maeve34: MV: :::winces::: I have no idea. ::::glances over at Becky:::: Yes, but he couldnt have pulled it off without you.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::quietly:: That's why I need to see my son again...
Maeve34: MV: :::frowns::: Oh, I mean. ::::barries her head in her hands::: I'm sorry.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::shakes her head:: Don't be.
Maeve34: MV: Well, I suppse I will. I mean something had to have changed for me to marry him. So I guess it will be the same... once I see him again.
Quantum Catz: BM: I guess he gets his second chance somehow, anyway
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::nods; softly:: Can I buy you anything to eat?
Quantum Catz: BM: We've got money, it's okay

YarnKittymon: PQ: ::nods again, closing her eyes; softly:: It might be another half hour, yet. Was there anything you wanted to see?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs and looks at Maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shrugs and glances over at Mrs. Quinn::: I'm not sure what is all around here.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::opens her eyes; softly:: Not all that much to do after dark. There's a theater, but we don't have time.
YarnKittymon: PQ: Are you sure you're not hungry?
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm not really, no
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shakes her head::: No, not really.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::nods; quietly:: You're welcome to stay with us tonight; we'll head home tomorrow evening.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::glances over at Becky:::
Quantum Catz: BM: Thanks...but you don't have to...i'm sure we could find an inn to stay at
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: Will you come home with us, though?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sighs::: I dont know. That might not be a good idea.
YarnKittymon: PQ: Why not?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sighs again::: It just might not be in your best interest. :::looks a little depressed::: Seems everytime we meet up with someone, things dont turn out so well.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::smiles softly at Maeve:: I'm not afraid.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::glances over at Becky::: The last people didn't believe me either.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs and smiles weakly:: We should probably go back to our own time soon anyway
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::looks down; softly:: I see. ::looks back up at Maeve:: While you're here, do you...have any questions? Would you like to see a couple of your husband's letters?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::her eyes widen::: Letters?
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::glances up at Maeve:: I keep a couple of the love letters sent, from each generation, starting with your...the man who will be your husband.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::wrinkles her nose::: Love letters? Sent? From where?
YarnKittymon: PQ: Both were written while he was in prison. The one was mailed in 1930; I don't know about the other one, because it's not postmarked.
Maeve Owens: MV: Okay, I'm curious
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles::
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::pulls a small bundle of letters out of her tunic, and takes out the two on top, both in their envelopes; the first one's addressed to Miss Elizabeth Williamson on Kitar Island, and the second, simply to Maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: A love letter to libby?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::moves closer to look::
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::shakes her head; softly:: No...
Quantum Catz: BM: Then why was it written to Libby?
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: Just open it.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::takes the envelope addressed to Libby and opens it:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the inside of the letter reads:: Dear Miss Williamson, I write this to you in the hopes you might deliver it to another certain young woman. She can do as she will with it,
YarnKittymon: even burn it if it makes her happy, but I don't dare write her name. The guards read every word we write, and I don't dare risk her safety.
YarnKittymon: But she is in danger. There's a killer from the prison who was just released, who wants her blood. His name is Seth Cooper and he's a tall, strong man with dark brown hair and brown eyes. I don't know if he'll change his name once he's out, but even though my cell-mate thinks she's safe, I'm certain he'll track her down and try to hurt her. Please tell her to be careful.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::her breath catches::: Well now I guess we know who ends up kiling me.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Paelith, slightly pale:: You think this counts as a love letter?
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: It's the first she heard from him since he was imprisoned, isn't it?
YarnKittymon: : ::if they care to read, the letter continues::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::: keeps on reading::::
YarnKittymon: I'll be free in another year and I'll do all I can to protect her then, but until then, she'll have to defend herself. I know she's strong; I know she'll be all right. I love that woman more than she can know, more than anything. There's nothing she can do, nothing she could have done, to make me love her any less. Miss Williamson, please don't let any harm come to her, and please, please don't let her disregard this warning.
YarnKittymon: Your obedient servant,
Donald Quinn
Quantum Catz: BM: What i don't get is...if you got this letter...and we all knew about it...why couldn't we stop this Seth guy?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::is blushing by the end of it but her expression turns into a smirk at the last line:::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shrugs::: Maybe so much time had passed we just let our guard down.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: I don't know what happened; your husband saw no purpose in telling anyone the details.
Maeve Owens: MV: Well lets see the other one, I want to know what he's planning on doing to get me to like him again. :::smirks:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the other letter reads:: Dearest Maeve, not a day goes by when I don't think of you, when I don't miss you. I've heard of forgiveness from God, I might even be able to believe it, but whenever I try, how can I? when you'll likely never forgive what I've done to you, no matter how I beg, no matter how sorry I am, no matter how much I need you, no matter that I can't imagine going on living life if I didn't know you were alive and happy. I've always felt that way about you, dearest, and knowing I may never see you again, will almost certainly never see you smile at me, the way you used to, is almost more than I can bear. And I know that not only can I not mail this letter to you, but that even when it makes it into your hands, two, three, twenty years from now, you'll probably set it ablaze rather than read what I've tried to say to you. So be it. May the countless letters I write for you at least serve as kindling in your fireplace, to keep you warm at night, since I don't even dare imagine you letting me warm you in any other way.
YarnKittymon: Yours in life and in death, Donald
Maeve Owens: MV: :::blinks a few times::: Was he suicidal?
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: He said he tried, once.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods:::
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::still quietly:: But if he was anything about my husband, even when he didn't want to die, he couldn't get his mortality out of his mind. We're all doomed to die eventually, but it's hard to think of anything else, when you've only a few years ahead of you.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods again::: Yeah. Donald was like that. Even tried to for immortality once.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: He has it now.
Maeve Owens: MV: Maybe, but I dont know if he ever believed that. Or maybe he ended up believing it. He mentioned something about God and forgiveness.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::looks down:: And his line lived on, though not...not for very much longer...
Maeve Owens: MV: :::winces::: I'm sorry. We've never been the kind to live long lives I suppose. My parents didn't even make it past my sixteenth birthday. I guess we're cursed. Double cursed when you add in Donald's bad luck.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly and says, half-jokingly:: Hey, you don't know what happened to me...for all we know i ended up worse off than you
Maeve Owens: MV: :::groans:: Please, dont say that. I'm pulling for you and Toby to run off and get married and live a happy life until you're both 90. Some of us should at least get the chance to live a full life.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: Well i've never been much of a settling down type yet, but i guess it could happen one day
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::smiles sadly; quietly:: I wish my son would at least marry...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks::: If I do it, then I'm sure you could definitely do it.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles sadly at Paelith::: Maybe he will.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::shakes her head:: He's determined not to. The family line dies with him...
Maeve Owens: MV: :::frowns::: Why is that?
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: He doesn't understand how happy I was to be with his father, even for a short time. All he understands is that I'm a widow, and he doesn't want to put any woman through that. His father was the same way; it took years for me to convince him otherwise...
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods::: Well, maybe he'll find someone that will convince him.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::quietly:: It doesn't sound like he'll have time, though, does it?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles sadly::: You never know. Donald ends up living a little longer than he thought he was going to.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I don't think i could handle losing someone i loved....i'd hate to be left alone after being so happy...
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::closes her eyes; softly. after a long pause:: They're getting off the boat.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods:::
YarnKittymon: PQ: Shall we meet them?
Maeve Owens: MV: Sure
Quantum Catz: BM: If we don't they'd probably think we'd gotten ourselves into some kind of trouble ::smiles weakly::
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::gets up, picking up the letters; quietly:: Perhaps you did. Maybe I've changed things already.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sighs:: The letter didn't help the first time. It probably wont help the second time.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::smiles a little:: Hopefully I've not made things worse.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::stands up too:: It probably couldn't get much worse
Maeve Owens: MV: Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
Maeve Owens: ((and i actually had typed those exact words out...))
Quantum Catz: ((lol))
YarnKittymon: PQ: Well, Oliver's still here, or his thoughts are, anyway. ::walks towards the Gate::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::Stands up and follows her:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows after them both::
YarnKittymon: : ::in just a couple minutes, they're near the Gate, and see Toby and Oliver (and presumably Dominick) walking towards them; Toby's trying to joke with Oliver, but it doesn't seem to be helping::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::is walking along beside them, not really saying anything::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::stands their silently beside Paelith and Becky:::
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::walks forward quickly and hugs Oliver tightly, murmuring something to him that the others can't hear::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::glances at Becky silently::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::attempts a grin at Toby and Dominick altho she's not feeling paticularly cheerful:: Enjoy the ferry ride?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::feeling rather depressed herself:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: Can't complain, really.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::pulls away from his mother, looking like he's ready to cry; softly:: What are the rest of you up to?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: We were just sitting at a cafe talking
Maeve Owens: MV: How was your boat ride?
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: That's probably the last time I'll even ride on a boat; you know that?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::winces:: Okay, I'm ready for a new topic other than how much time everyone has left to live.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sharply:: Besides, there has to be *something* we can do to fix it.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::groans:: We knew who did it before and it wasn't stopped! Besides that doesnt fix the whole line of Quinn's dying from heart failure!
YarnKittymon: TY: I made Becky a body; why can't I fix a heart?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shrugs:: I dont know! Why didn't you in the past? In this past we are standing in! Something must have stopped you.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces and then sighs::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sadly::: Maybe the two of you arent even going to be there.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::remains silent::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::weakly:: but i can be anywhere in the world if i want to
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shrugs:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I don't want to know what happens to me...but I'll be around, Maeve. You'll be all right.
Maeve Owens: MV: How do you know that? And I dont want you to stay around just because of that! You and Becky have your own lives to live!
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly:: She's right you know, you can't spend the whole of your life trying to protect her
YarnKittymon: TY: Not my whole life. We know what year she was killed, right? Can't we find the day?
Maeve Owens: MV: And how would we do that?
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: It's in the family tree...
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh, well then, that would make it easier.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: Why bother? Even if you save her then, she'll probably get killed later, maybe in a worse way.
Quantum Catz: DK: She is starting to develop a habit of doing that
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods::: Yeah. It seems they get worse each time I'm saved. Besides, whose to say we haven't already done something to change the date.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks away; quietly:: Neither of you wants to even try?
Maeve Owens: MV: No. Not really. Not if it means you or Becky or anyone else altering the way their life should be going. What if something worse happens and you get killed in the crossfire instead?
Quantum Catz: BM ::looks down::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly:: I'm tired of false hopes.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::glances at Becky; softly:: Then maybe I *will* have to move away. I don't think I could just stay and do nothing.
Maeve Owens: MV: And the only reason I keep saying Becky is because I am keeping my fingers crossed that at least the two of you will get a happy ending.
Maeve Owens: MV: If you were meant to move away, then yes, you should.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I've lived my entire life accepting that some things shouldn't or can't be changed...it's Maeve's choice not ours
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: You can't go too far, though. Who else will take care of Oliver's grandfather?
Maeve Owens: MV: My sister? Hopefully anyway. Although I'm not sure he wouldn't be better off elsewhere.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Maybe we should just leave.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::chuckles::: Getting scared that you might get the honor of being Uncle?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: I don't want to think about it, Maeve. About any of this, if you're not going to let me make it better.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::softly::: But you might not make it better Toby. And I dont think I want to live with the worry that it might go wrong for you.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: Guess it's a good thing I don't have Dominick or Becky's powers, then. I don't think I could take it.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::weakly:: You think it's any easier for me? I'm not going to go messing with maeve's life if she doesn't want it messed with
Maeve Owens: MV: How about we cross this bridge when we get to it and let it rest for now? I for one dont want it to be the first thing I think of when I wake up in the morning.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::puts his hands in his pockets, silently::
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::after a moment:: Well, thank you...all of you...for bringing Oliver back safely.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs and sighs:: We were coming here anyway
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles weakly at them:::
YarnKittymon: PQ: Still...I'm sorry for all the pain I've caused you...
Maeve Owens: MV: :::frowns::: You haven't done anything. If anything I should be saying that. I wish I could change it for you.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks down at her hands::
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly, looking away as well:: Are you going to stay the night?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::glances at the others::: Thats up to them. If they want to stay or not. :::sighs:::
Quantum Catz: DK: I could take you back to your time now if you want..
YarnKittymon: TY: There's not much point to staying, is there?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::glances briefly at Oliver and Paelith:::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::is looking at the ground rather sullenly::
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::smiles weakly at Maeve:: Do you think you'll still fall for him?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::weakly::: Dont worry. I wouldnt do anything to keep Oliver from being born. At least I hope I dont.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes Becky's hand, silently::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::keeps looking down at the ground, rather wearily::
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::nods to Maeve:: Thank you...
Maeve Owens: MV: :::wryly::: Although I must say, he had better have some great plan for redemption up his sleave.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: The letters didn't move you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: He was never really a bad man...he did seem to really want to help *me* at one point...
Maeve Owens: MV: Yeah okay, so he loves me. That doesn't make up for anything. :::glances at Becky:: I know that. But I can still be angry for a while cant I?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: A few years, at least.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: Well, it was a pleasure meeting all of you.
Maeve Owens: MV: It was nice meeting the two of you too.
YarnKittymon: PQ: I'm sorry I couldn't tell you anything you wanted to hear.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: It's probably a good thing you don't know all about me and Toby as well...we'd probably be even more depressed
Maeve Owens: MV: :::smiles at her::: Thats okay. I always kind of figured I was doomed to begin with.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::with an unreadable expression:: I'm just not telling, Becky. Take care, though, all of you. Maybe things will work out differently now.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up and smiles weakly:: I think the silence might well speak for itself
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::shakes her head, a tiny smile forming:: Don't think that way.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Come on. I don't want to think about it.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: It's not so bad, honestly.
Maeve Owens: MV: But its still bad?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks down:: I hope not...
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::softly:: Unless we've changed that too, but I believe love isn't so easily set off track as that.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::turns rather red; glances at Dominick:: Are you ready?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs..under her breath:: Love can be fickle...
Quantum Catz: DK: Whenever you are
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods quickly::
Maeve Owens: MV: Uhg. Can we at least get one reason we should go back? Tell us something happy.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::thinks for a bit, then smiles:: Mr. and Mrs. Donald Quinn are known as the king and queen of the airwaves on Kitar Island for years.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::looks puzzled::: I get a career on the radio?
YarnKittymon: PQ: Why not? It's what your husband loves, isn't it?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sighs::: Well, I guess if those two dont want to know anymore then we should just go.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns; quietly:: Me and Becky can go off somewhere if you want to keep interrogating her.
Maeve Owens: MV: Okay please do. Especially if I never get to live to see anything go right.
Quantum Catz: BM: :looks down:: Let's just go...
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::nods:: Goodbye, then. I wish you all the best. Please be careful.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::squeezes Becky's hand, silently::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up at him, smiling weakly, then says to paelith:: Goodbye
YarnKittymon: OL: ::stands next to his mother, not looking at them::
DK: ::looks at maeve:: You ready?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods at Dominick and glances over at the Quinns::: Goodbye. :::leans over and whispers in Oliver's ear::: Dont waste what little time you have left. Theres no reason why you cant have a happy few years.
YarnKittymon: PQ: ::smiles slightly, hearing Maeve with her big ears::
YarnKittymon: OL: ::softly, glancing at Maeve:: I'll try.
MV: Thank you. Bye. :::glances back at Dominick, and nods again::: I'm ready.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles weakly at Oliver:: Good luck, man.
YarnKittymon: OL: ::doesn't reply::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::smiles at Oliver and then reaches for becky and maeve's hands...instantly moving them from the time they're at to their own time of 1928::

On to Thursday, January 30, 1930
