(Back to March 3, 1928 part 1)

SquirtLaWort: EM: what book might that be?
JopdanceY: jm: ::appears from nowhere. She's petting one of the kittens in the box. Blinks:: What?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shakes her head:: i'm not crying - i'm not going to cry. I won't...
YarnKittymon: RY: ::looks rather taken aback:: Uh.....hello....
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::startled by Jasmine appering out of thin air:: Oh your back!
Hgriffithk: ER: Oh, hiya Jasmine :smiles::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: It's all right...
JopdanceY: jm: ::gives a bewildered smile:: Um..Hi! Erm...where are we?
Hgriffithk: ER: Look at my cute kitten ::hold up kitten for Jasmine's inspection::
Quantum Catz:
BM: He acted like he was my friend...he used to tell me about his family...his cat... But he wasn't my friend - he was just like all the other scientists.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: don't worry, this man is just letting us take some kittens and Libby and Becky are downstairs.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after a pause:: I'm sorry, Becky. I don't really understand, but I'm sorry...
JopdanceY: jm: If you say so..I guess I must have blacked out there ::turnes to ER:: Say...he is cute. Can I hold him?
Hgriffithk: ER: ::grins:: Sure! ::hands over kitten to Jasmine::
EM: ::to Raymond:: This is Jasmine, I hope she didn't scare you coming in like that.
Quantum Catz: BM: He *created* me, Libby. I was just another rat - the only reason i exist is so he could do experiments...test varient powers...
YarnKittymon: RY: ::smiles politely:: Not really...I just wasn't expecting a show in my own place of business, I think. ::smiles at Jasmine:: I'm Raymond.
JopdanceY: jm: ::strokes kitten softly:: What are you going to name him?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::eyes widen:: That doesn't make any sense...
Hgriffithk: ER: I'm not sure yet, prehaps you could help me think of something?
jm: Sure! ::turns to Raymond:: Hello, I'm Jasmine
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs:: It doesn't matter anyway. He's gone now. I'm free. But i just keep thinking....what if...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly, kneeling to be more on Becky's level:: What if what?
YarnKittymon: RY: ::to Jasmine:: Pleased to meet you. ::smiles:: If you want a kitten, too, you're more than welcome to take one.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs:: Becky's not going to be happy to see each of us with a kitten.
Quantum Catz: BM: What if someone else comes along...and i end up caught again? i don't want to be a lab rat again
JopdanceY: jm: ::smiles softly at the kitten in her arms:: Oh, I would love a kitten, but I'm too irresponsible..Becky doesn't like cats?
Quantum Catz: BM: That's why i didn't want to be in your show...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::laughs:: Serves her right, imagine not liking cats?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after a while:: No one's going to catch you here, Becky. I--I've never heard of these "labs." Even if someone *did* catch you, couldn't you escape?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::pets the tiny kitten he's been holding:: Hard to imagine a little girl hating cats.
YarnKittymon: RY: ::pauses:: That's true...
Quantum Catz: BM: I told you when we met - if i use my powers too much or i get tired, i start to fade. I'm more afraid of that than i am of being caught
Hgriffithk: ER: Yeah, everything about that little girl is odd though ::frowns::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sighs; softly:: Is there anything I can do for you?
JopdanceY: jm: gives Erin back her kitten:: Well, maybe she has her reasons...::kneels beside the box of softly mewling kittens::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shakes her head, closes her eyes for a moment, and then looks calmly at Libby:: I'll be fine. I've always managed before
YarnKittymon: RY: ::looking down at Jasmine:: Looks to me like you want one anyway...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks down; softly:: I wouldn't let anything happen to you, you know.
JopdanceY: jm: ::grins as she pets them:: I do. But I know better then to get one. I'd be better off as a baby sitter... or kitten sitter.
YarnKittymon: RY: ::smiles:: Fair enough.
Hgriffithk: ER: You could look after my kitten for me if I'm ever away ::smiles::
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::sighs:: You hardly know me
JopdanceY: jm: ::smiles at Erin:: That would be great!
YarnKittymon: LB: I know. But I...wouldn't let anyone hurt a little girl.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::grins:: Great! ::looks to Ethan:: I think we should be getting back now, Libby and Becky still are waiting
YarnKittymon: RY: ::looks a little disappointed:: Well--you know you're welcome back any time.
SquirtLaWort: EM: Thank you for the Kittens!
YarnKittymon: RY: ::gruffly:: Just glad to be rid of a couple. ::pauses:: Take good care of them.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns:: I'm not a little girl
Hgriffithk: ER: ::hugs the kitten to her chest and smiles, embarrased:: Nice to meet you, Ray. Thankyou ever so much for the kitten ::grins::
jm: ::stands up:: It was nice meeting you, Ray. Hope you find good homes for them.
YarnKittymon: LB: Of course not. You take pretty good care of yourself. You're a big girl.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: I'll take great care of her! And be sure to see the show when it opens.
Hgriffithk: ER: Yeah, its sure to be spectacular ::laughs quietly::
Quantum Catz:
BM: Now you're patronising me ::sticks out her tongue::
YarnKittymon: RY: ::smiles, especially at the two young women, and especially Erin:: I will, if I can spare the time. You come by sometimes too; we're open all season.
YarnKittymon: LB: Don't be rude!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins, some of the sadness in her eyes fading:: Wanna play a game? i've still got the money that guy gave me
Hgriffithk: ER: ::smiles back:: Sure, I will - goodbye for now then ::turns to leave::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::stands, half-smiling:: If you'd like...
JopdanceY: jm: ::follows Erin::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles at Jasmine:: Libby will be glad to see your back.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::tilts her head, frowning at the games in the arcade:: What d'you wanna play?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sees the others exiting the arcade as she and Becky head back in; pauses:: Jasmine...hello...
JopdanceY: jm: ::flashes a puzzled smile:: How did I leave anyway?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: Hey Jasmine
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks down; softly:: I can't always control my powers...
JopdanceY: jm: Ah, I understand now. Don't worry about it. ::smiles:: I don't think you ever told me..what are your powers?
Quantum Catz: BM: Don't look so gloomy, Libby. It's not like it's dangerous
YarnKittymon: LB: You pretty much experienced them...::glances at Becky, half-smiling::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: It's not like you hurt anyone.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::mutters:: Yeah, I've moved been through time twice, and I'm okay so far...
YarnKittymon: LB: I guess not...I just wish...::shakes her head::
CleoDominic: ::Alex walks by all groggy looking::
Hgriffithk: ER: It's no problem Libby, we're all still learning ::smiles reassuringly::
jm: ::absently:: That's true..
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns at Ethan and Erin:: How come you've both got cats? Don't tell me Erin decided to get two!!
YarnKittymon: RY: ::sees a rather suspicious-looking man outside; frowns::
CleoDominic: AX: :huh? wow more people?: ::walks up to them::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: No I got one for myself.
CleoDominic: AX: Hey, its a cat! here kitty kitty!:
Quantum Catz: BM: I swear, you're both nuts ::shakes her head::
CleoDominic: AX: :yawns:
JopdanceY: jm: ::laughs::
Quantum Catz: BM: All *three* of you are nuts
Hgriffithk: ER: ::frowns at Alex:: He's only a kitten, when did you wake up anyway?
AX: :I woke up a few minutes ago...why, what going on? What happen to that cat?:
Hgriffithk: ER: It turned out to belong to the owner of this place
YarnKittymon: RY: ::looks rather puzzled, but figures the weird bum's their friend; still, doesn't introduce himself::
CleoDominic: AX: :eyes widen: :I love games, oh, can I play!:
YarnKittymon: RY: Well, these machines take money.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: I've got money, I'm gonna play
Hgriffithk: ER: ::tosses a coin at Alex:: Here, knock yourself out ::grins::
AX: :they do? well I guess I can't: ::Pulls lent out of his pockets::
CleoDominic: AX: :wow, thanks Erin! thank you very much: ::smile::
YarnKittymon: RY: ::looks between Erin and Alex, then sighs a bit::
JopdanceY: jm: ::looks between Erin, Alex, and Ray and smiles quietly to herself::
Hgriffithk: ER: ::puzzelled by all the strange looks she's getting, ^_^::
EM: ::smirks at Alex:: Don't blow the place up.
CleoDominic: AX: :walks around looking at the games:
Quantum Catz: BM: ::runs off in the opposite direction from Alex, looking for a game that might be fun::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a line of "digger" machines on the left side; the first two are electric, and their claws twitch as Alex walks by. There's an unmanned counter on the right side of the arcade, and various kinds of diversions in the middle of the arcade--a few flipbook-style contraptions, a machine that plays a '3-D' type series of photographs, a gaudy Gypsy Fortuneteller that dispenses a fortune card, and a Test Your Grip, as well as a scale that dispenses a fortune and advice while showing your weight
JopdanceY: jm: Well, if we're going back inside...::sits down to play with the kittens again::
CleoDominic: AX: :Hey, Becky, what are you going to play?: :hey whats that game?:
SquirtLaWort: EM: Libby, that man Raymond, told us something very interesting I think you should know.
CleoDominic: AX: ::walks over to the 3-d photographs maechine:: :I love pics!: ::puts in his money, and puts his face on the machine::
Quantum Catz: BM: cool, a fortuneteller. Anyone want their fortune told?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::pauses:: Oh?
Hgriffithk: ER: Hey, Jasmine. Could you hang onto kitten for me? I'd like to have a go of the 'test your grip'
EM: He told us there is an island around here where variants live.
YarnKittymon: : ::the machine, which costs a nickel, slowly displays a series of pictures, involving a cowboy and his sidekick riding across the desert and being attacked by Indians. The cowboy points his gun at an Indian, who falls, and then the viewpiece goes black.
JopdanceY: jm: ::looks up from her lapful of kittens:: Sure ::adds ER's to the pile::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::pauses as she raises her hand to put her money in the fortuneteller, listening to Ethan::
CleoDominic: AX: ::his ears tiches:: ::pulls up from the machine:: what? Variants?:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::pauses:: Around here? It must be invisible, then, because I've never seen one.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::grins:: Thanks! ::rushes off::
EM: He told me that I could find out more about it in some book.
CleoDominic: AX: :What did i miss while I was snoozing Miss Libby ma'am?
JopdanceY: jm: ::feels the strange shift in mood in the room and looks up:: What's a varient?
YarnKittymon: LB: Not much, Alex. ::turns towards Jasmine:: I guess some people call people like us "variants."
CleoDominic: AX: :and who is this guy?: ::points to raymound::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs to herself:: I thought the island was just a story
JopdanceY: jm: hmm...never heard of that before ::turns to Alex who rather reminds her of a wild man from the jungle:: He owns this place, remember?
Quantum Catz: BM: I suppose it's better than being called a rat or a freak
YarnKittymon: RY: Raymond Marshall.
CleoDominic: AX: :He does? ::Looks at Raymound with a sheepish smile:: :Nice to meet you, I'm Alex Indigo!:
YarnKittymon: RY: ::frowns:: Any friend of Erin's can't be all bad, I suppose.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: They only met today
CleoDominic: AX: What do you mean bad? do I look bad! ::Truns to Becky::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs::
JopdanceY: jm: ::laughs::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: Not *bad* exactly...
CleoDominic: AX: ::looks at his loose hair hanging down:: :Oh it must of came loose when I was sleeping, ::pulls it up in a pony tail again::
CleoDominic: AX: :heheheh:
YarnKittymon: RY: ::pauses, then looks at the fortuneteller machine, which seems to have taken Becky's money; raps it on the side of the glass case a few times, and the machine spits out a small card::
JopdanceY: jm: ::to the kittens:: You are all so adorable! If I'm not careful you'll charm me into taking you home. And then where will we be? ::one adventurous one climbs to the top of her head::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::takes the card and frowns down at it::
YarnKittymon: : ::the fortune card reads, "Love is nearby."::
YarnKittymon: : ::the test-your-grip machine returns Erin's strength as "Strongman"::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mutters:: "love is nearby" what does that mean??
Hgriffithk: ER: ::jumps up:: Whoo hoo!
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::scrunches up the card and tosses it in the bin::
YarnKittymon: RY: Maybe the gypsy mistook you for someone else...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::glances at Raymond::
AX: :Hmph! Love stinks anyways...they just rip out your heart, and drang it on the ground, and spit and your face as you die emotionless on the ground...:
YarnKittymon: RY: ::goes over:: Strongman? Really? I sometimes don't get that high...
JopdanceY: jm: ::blinks:: that was unexpected Alex
YarnKittymon: LB: ::pauses:: I don't think that quite happens to normal people, Alex.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::laughs:: I like to keep in shape
Quantum Catz:
BM: I wouldn't know ::shrugs at Alex:: i've never even had a real family
CleoDominic: AX: : oh sorry, I have a bad love life... tell you guess I'll tell ya guys later:
SquirtLaWort: EM: No thanks.
CleoDominic: AX: :I killed my family Becky, don't feel too bad..:
YarnKittymon: RY: I guess so! I don't think I've seen a lady do so well.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smile fades slightly:: Oh...
CleoDominic: AX: :and you remind me of my younger sister, Becky, so bright:
JopdanceY: jm: I know plenty of girls who could do as well Ray..::breath knocked out of her by Alex's statement:: you kiiled your family?
CleoDominic: AX: :yeah, my mother, father, two older brothers, and my younger sister, Pollyanna..:
YarnKittymon: LB: And the police never caught you?
JopdanceY: jm: ::eyes wide:: you killed your family? How can you just stand there and say something like that?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Why would you kill your family?!
CleoDominic: AX: :I was 10 at the time! It was an freak accident...!: ::go silence, and leans against the wall::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::bites her lip uncertainly:: You can't always control what your powers do
Hgriffithk: ER: ::leans beside Alex:: That's awful...I'm so sorry
YarnKittymon: LB: Someone should have taken you in after that.
CleoDominic: AX: : thats the day I leaned of my powers...I...I was just playin in my room...wh..when..oh neve mind...:
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::wispers to Libby:: What if another "accident" happens?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates, then says softly:: There was this guy... ::tries to avoid mentioning the labs while explaining:: I lost control of my powers... He's dead now too...
CleoDominic: AX: :Really? Then I guess we all have accident...: : I stayed a street rat after the accident..:
JopdanceY: jm: ::her blue eyes loose their shocked, and angry flash and she looks concerned::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks down:: Someday perhaps someone just might not return--I might send them forward so far...::shakes her head; looks at Alex:: I'm surprised the authorities didn't put you in a youth home.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::frowns:: Prehaps I'm lucky not to possess a dangerous power after all
AX: : I wouldnt let them, I ran away to America...and hid all my life...till I became a member of a band, and found a love...
JopdanceY: jm: ::nods in agreement with erin:: You are...::to Alex:: What is your power anyway?
YarnKittymon: RY: ::frowns for a moment, then shrugs; softly, to Erin:: Danger's just a part of living in the world today, I think. Most the folks who drive cars probably shouldn't.
CleoDominic: AX: :I control lightning....wanna see?!?:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quickly:: Not right now!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins, glad to stop talking about death:: Sure!
CleoDominic: AX: ::smiles:: : oh why not?:
CleoDominic: AX::walks out side in the middle of the road::
JopdanceY: jm: ::surprised at the suddeness of Libby's speech:: Yea, why not?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::runs over to the doorway to watch::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::stays inside::
Hgriffithk: ER: ::to Raymond:: Yeah...I know all about dangers ::walks away quickly to watch Alex::
EM: ::stand at the doorway to watch::
CleoDominic: AX: :Ladies and gents of all ages, introduceing, Lightning! ::Holds up his hands and a flash of lightning hits it, causing him to glow::
JopdanceY: ::jm:: ::sets down kittens and goes to window to watch; one cat still on her head::
CleoDominic: ::their hair all raises::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates and then runs back over to libby, saying softly so noone else hears:: it was the scientist
YarnKittymon: RY: ::heads to the doorway and looks out himself, his hair raising in a rather strange manner due to its heavy grease::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::a little confused, then nods; softly:: So you escaped...
CleoDominic: AX ::that moment Alex releases his wings, to catch some of the lightning::
Quantum Catz: BM: I...I didn't want you to think i'd done anything really bad....i just....
YarnKittymon: : ::there are only a couple people outside, but they stop and stare::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: How old are you?
JopdanceY: jm: ::hair of the kitten and Jas's hair both raise: making them both look as if they've stuck they're hand (and paw) in a lightsocket::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: I was in the lab for ten years...but i've been travelling through time a lot longer
Hgriffithk: ER: ::laughs at the sight of Jasmine and the kittens::
AX: ::he stops, and folds back in his wings, then fall to the ground, tired....::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: I see...you look younger...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::shakes head:: Show off..
YarnKittymon: RY: ::shakes his head:: Looks like one of those angels in paintings...::pauses:: He's not, is he?
CleoDominic: AX: ::stands back up and walk back inside, looking very tired, but yet, still has a spark in his blue eyes.::
JopdanceY: jm: ::awed by the site of Alex and then runs outside to check that he's ok; shakes his shoulder:: Alex?
CleoDominic: AX: :I'm fine, just a little drained...thats all...:
Quantum Catz: BM: I was created - i'm just energy. All i have are the memories of a girl called Rebecca, *My* life really began the day the scientist died...
JopdanceY: jm: ::lends him her hand to help him up:: You really shouldn't do that in the street...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shudders a little, involuntarily, then shakes her head:: I...still can't say I understand.
CleoDominic: AX: :yeah I know I just like to show off, I like you peoples, I've been looking so long for a home, and i think I finally found one!: :: smiles widely::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: It doesn't matter. i just wanted you to know
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles weakly:: Well, if you ever need a place to stay...
JopdanceY: jm: ::grins:: yes well as much of a home as their is to be found i a freak show....at least we're all alike ::smile grows:: you are all gonna be a barrel of laughs...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: As long as you stop calling me a little girl ^_-
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: But then you might have to stop behaving like one. And what's the fun of that?
Quantum Catz: BM: Y'know, i think you might have a point
CleoDominic: AX: :frowns: I'm gonna be late for band pratice!: ::jumps up:: : hey old hag, what time is is?::shouting at Libby::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::narrows her eyes at him:: I don't care how impressive your powers are. You'll show me some respect.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::gets angery:: Will you stop calling her that!
CleoDominic: AX: :oh, are you two going out or somthing? or is Ethan your hubby!? ::laughs and smiles:: ::oh la la:
Quantum Catz: BM: ::laughs::
JopdanceY: jm: ::rolls her eyes::
SquirtLaWort: EM: That's it! ::punchs Alex right in the nose::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins and runs over to get a better view:: come on Alex! Get him back!
CleoDominic: Ax: :What was that for, I was just playing around!: ::stops and looks at him::
SquirtLaWort: EM: You better start showing people some respect!
YarnKittymon: RY: ::steps between Alex and Ethan:: Please break it up. Or take it outside. I don't want my kittens or my machines getting broken.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks disappointed that nothing else seems to be going to happen::
CleoDominic: AX: :Respect? Atleast I dont go around hitting people because they get on my nerves! If I did, I would of hit you with lighning along time ago!:
YarnKittymon: RY: ::forcibly pushes the two towards the entrance::
JopdanceY: jm: ::growls a low warning at Alex and then covers her mout in surprise:: Did that come out of me?

EM: Fine ::walks out of arcade::
JopDance: jm: ::still surprised by her growl, tries to blend in with the scenery::
YarnKittymon: After being ponch, he starts off kinda mad, then relizes he deserved it. he would done the same to someone who would talk bad about the gurl he loves. he just steps away from ethan, wiping his bloody nose on his worn shrit sleeve.
YarnKittymon: ((That's all a thought of Alex's so unless any of you are mind-readers I doubt you'd get it))
YarnKittymon: AX: :Listen, I don't like fighting...I'm sorry, if I inselted you Libby.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head, frowning:: Try *thinking* before you speak, Alex.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles at Alex:: Well I hope you won't be insulting her anymore
YarnKittymon: AX: ::walks to Jasmine:: :thanks jasmine, you were the only one to see if I was alright, when I showed off my powers..
JopDance: jm: ::leans against door and slides to floor; absently:: Oh, sure. Anyone would have done it...
YarnKittymon: AX: ::looks at Libby's wristwatch:: Oh! I have band practice!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::a little sarcastically:: I think we've done enough damage here...
YarnKittymon: RY: ::smirks:: Usually I don't get rowdies in here until *after* the season starts...
SquirtLaWort: EM: Yeah.. sorry about that.
YarnKittymon: LB: Anyway, everyone, I figure we can get together next Saturday and practice our acts. So I guess you'll all have to figure out an act before then.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smirks:: That'll be fun
YarnKittymon: AX: Okay, fine. I'm late! ::runs off::
SquirtLaWort: EM: Alright. sounds good to me.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after a moment, quietly, half-looking at Ethan:: Thanks...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles at Libby:: No problem... I wanted to hit him anyways.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs slightly:: Hopefully you won't have to make a habit of that...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: Yep, cos he'd have lost if Alex fought back
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::frowns at Becky:: Well I was afaird he might use his lighting on me but if he would have I'd be dead. So I guess your right.
YarnKittymon: LB: Stop talking like that! ::frowns:: Not that I'd put it past him...but then he'd be in jail right now...
JopDance: jm: ::seems to come out of her spell as a thought comes to her:: Ray, can I try your test your strength machine? ::pauses, and very quietly:: How could he, they would only think it was lightning...
Quantum Catz: BM: I wasn't talking about using his powers, I bet Alex could win without them ::winks at Ethan and then heads over to a nearby game::
YarnKittymon: RY: ::a little surprised:: Sure, knock yourself out.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::shrugs:: I knew what I was doing. If he killed me then at lest you would all know to stay away from him.
JopDance: jm: ::puts in a coin and squeezes lever:: You had no idea what you were doing ::she grumbles::
Quantum Catz: BM: Come on, he's not that bad! You're acting like u think he's a cold-blooded killer or something
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns, silently::
JopDance: jm: ::results come up average and is visibly relieved::
Hgriffithk: ER: ::looks at the reading Jasmine got and smiles superiorly behind her ^_-::
YarnKittymon: : ::neither Raymond nor Libby seem particularly interested in the results of Jasmine's test::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at Becky::I hope your right about him, because he's going to be around a lot of costumers and if anything goes wrong..
JopDance: jm: ::turns smiling, more like her own self::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks:: People come to Coney Island for danger, you know.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: All I know is, i've met worse people than Alex. And he looks like he can control his powers to me
YarnKittymon: LB: ::still smirking:: Tell that to the trees...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins::
JopDance: jm: ::leans against machine and taps it nervously; frowning::: What if someone gets hurt?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: I'm worried about what he might do...but his powers *are* visually stunning, and we need as many people as we can get to be *in* the show...if we only had three "freaks" for our show, I doubt we'd have enough people show up to even *get* hurt...
JopDance: jm: ::still frowning:: I have to get some work done...::she says absently and leaves::
Quantum Catz: BM: He *aims* for trees - if he was gonna hurt someone he'd have done it by now
YarnKittymon: LB: ::pauses:: You're right, Becky; I don't think he'd hurt anyone with his power--*intentionally.* But the building's made of wood...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shakes her head:: Fine, don't listen. But i know i'm right - he won't hurt anyone, not even unintentionally
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::pets the kitten he's been holding:: Well I'd love to stay and talk about Alex all day but I think I'm going to have to get my kitten home.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles at Ethan:: Probably. I'll see you next week, then.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles back:: See you then.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles at Becky:: so long kid.
Quantum Catz: BM: 'bye

::after a while and after the scene we're stuck in::
YarnKittymon: $LB: ::to Becky:: You want to come to my house for supper?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::uncertainly:: Umm...
YarnKittymon: LB: Or at least to see the house...if you wanted, anyway.
Quantum Catz: BM: Well i guess so, where is your house anyway?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks:: The rich part of town.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: Oh yeah?
YarnKittymon: LB: I'm pretty well-known, really.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::giggles:: And so modest too
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: Well, I *meant,* if you were from New York, you might've heard of me. But perhaps not; I guess it's only socialites that would know a rich person by name...
Quantum Catz: BM: Well *I* heard about u away in the future maybe you're better known than u think
Hgriffithk: ER: ::plays with her kitten, paying little attention to Libby and Becky::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles, clearly flattered:: Really... But I guess I don't really want to know anything else about the future.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Who would, after what i told you?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns; softly:: And you don't think there's any way we can change it?
Quantum Catz: BM: If you did, where would i be? Maybe it's selfish but i don't want to never have existed
Quantum Catz: BM: Anyway, lets not talk about this ::glances uncertainly at Erin:: I'd rather no one else knew
YarnKittymon: LB: ::eyes widen, then shakes her head; softly:: I suppose not...anyway, come on. It'll be a hot meal and everything.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: I'd rather have chocolate - but i guess that'll do
YarnKittymon: LB: Only if you finish your vegetables...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sticks out her tongue and then giggles::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: I don't care what you say. I'm afraid you'll always be an impudent little girl to me.
Hgriffithk: ER: Ermm, Libby? ::walks over still hugging kitten::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up, smiling:: Yes? I hope you don't want a ride home; I took the subway.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::smiles:: Nah, I can get home alright. ::holds out her hand:: Thanks for a ::pauses:: interesting day.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Thanks for coming. I'll see you next Saturday, then?
Quantum Catz: BM: Maybe then we'll get through a day without rescuing any more animals ::rolls her eyes::
Hgriffithk: ER: ::grins:: Yeah, of course! ::heads off to the nearest subway::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs a bit at Becky, then smiles at Erin:: Goodbye... ::locks up the building, then heads towards the subway herself::
Hgriffithk: ER: ::but not before sticking her tounge out at Becky ^_-::
Quantum Catz:
((you;re all so nice to the poor little girl ^_-))
Hgriffithk: ((She started it :P))
YarnKittymon: ((Hey, Libby repeatedly insists on feeding her...maybe if she feeds her enough Becky'll become more substantial ^_-))
Quantum Catz: ((was beginning to wonder if i in anyway described her as looking unfed ^_-))
YarnKittymon: ((It's a parental-instinct thing. ^_-))
YarnKittymon: LB: ::buys two tickets for the subway, and waits at the platform, silently; Becky's getting some funny looks for not being dressed more warmly::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns:: Wish they'd all stop looking at me
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: Put on a coat and they might.
Quantum Catz: BM: But i don't need one!
YarnKittymon: LB: I know...and they might guess that too...
Hgriffithk: ((Right, Erins train was waiting so she's well away now. I'll keep the screen up while I'm eating my tea though))
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::hesitates:: You think they might? ::bites her lip:: i can't even tell when it's cold
YarnKittymon: ((I really didn't mean to exclude you, Erin. Libby might've, but I didn't. ^_-))
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs:: They probably just think I'm a horrible person to let you out in the cold like that. I don't think many people know much about...::softly::..."freaks"...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: I hate this...i hate feeling like i have to hide away just to be safe. YarnKittymon: LB: Well, it will be summer soon...
Quantum Catz: BM: And then it'll be winter again. This's why i never really stick around the same place too long - after a while people start to notice things
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, you should be all right on Coney. Lots of strange people are there, in the summer, and I think sometimes they still live there in the off-season.
Quantum Catz: BM: That's why i came here in the first place...except it was the summer and...a few years from now
YarnKittymon: LB: Oh?
Quantum Catz: BM: It sounded like fun...but there were fires and stuff ::shrugs:: it wasn't so good after all
Quantum Catz: ((fire in 1932...stuck in my head from somewhere...))
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles slightly; their train pulls up:: They tore down a lot of old Coney just a couple years ago, so the fire trucks could get through better...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles slightly:: People got a bit upset cos i didn't get burned
YarnKittymon: LB: ::eyes widen; shakes her head; steps on the train:: Come on.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows her cheerfully:: I've never been in a train before
YarnKittymon: : ::the train is a little dirty and fairly empty::
YarnKittymon: LB: Really? They're...interesting. Faster than driving, though.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: i like cars - you can look out at all the scenery. Not been in many before though
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, we could change that. I have one, of course.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: Why did you take the train here then?
Quantum Catz: ((not sure about how grinning fits into last statement :\)
YarnKittymon: LB: The traffic's horrible. Though I suppose they've found a solution for *that* in the future...
Quantum Catz: BM: Nope, not that i noticed
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at Becky for a moment, then pauses, smiling:: Mother won't know what to make of you.
Quantum Catz: BM: Mother?
YarnKittymon: LB: It's my house--legally, anyway--but we still live together.
Quantum Catz: BM: Oh...so... ::uncertainly:: She'll be there tonight?
YarnKittymon: LB: Yes. Is that a problem?
Quantum Catz: BM: Don't suppose she's a varient too?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs; softly:: I doubt it. But I think my father was.
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm never really sure how to act round people who aren't varients...i'm always worried that they'll...
Quantum Catz: BM: So what was your father like?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Really cheerful, usually joking around...I'm not sure why he married Mother. ::sighs:: They separated before the War, though.
Quantum Catz: BM: What was his power?
YarnKittymon: LB: I was never sure he *had* one....sometimes he'd show me a trick, and make these glowing globes appear in his hands...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitantly:: So what happened to him? Did he die in the War?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods soberly:: He...left almost everything he owned to me...so Mother and I are well off...::blinks, sniffing::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at her feet:: I'm sorry. You must miss him
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: I do...but I wish I would've spent more time with him...
Quantum Catz: BM: Doesn't seem fair. All these nice people who die for nothing
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: That's life, I suppose. And he was doing his duty...he was brave. ::shakes her head:: But I've done pretty well for myself, besides that...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::snorts:: Duty isn't worth much if it kills you
Quantum Catz: BM: ::bites her lip:: sorry
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't always think before i say things
YarnKittymon: LB: ::glances at Becky, briefly angry, then looks down; softly:: He was wealthy enough, and old enough. He didn't have to go to war...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: I guess he thought it was worth it
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods:: He didn't like to hear of young men getting killed...
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't think anyone would... I guess you have to be pretty brave to try and do something about it
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles warmly at Becky::
YarnKittymon: : ::at the next stop a pretty big glut of people come in, making conversation difficult::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after about half an hour:: This is our stop. ::has to practically shove her way out of the subway::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glares at the people for an instant then sighs and just teleports out of the place::
YarnKittymon: : ::a few people do a double-take at either the disappearing girl in the train or the appearing girl on the platform::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::makes her way out, silently::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shakes her head:: I shouldn't have done that, i guess. But there *can't* be any scientists around at this time
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Lots of *scientists.* But I've never heard of anyone going after us.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: That's what i meant. It's too early for that to be a problem
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sighs a little:: Still...that's sad...::shakes her head:: It's only a few blocks away. Can you make it all right?
Quantum Catz: BM: Sure. I shouldn't teleport again for a while though. I'm getting kinda tired
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods:: All--
YarnKittymon: : ::Libby and Becky suddenly find themselves at a rather fancy dinner table, set for three, but able to seat about twenty. Libby's mother, an older, thin woman, is seated across from them, and there's a servant behind them.::
Quantum Catz: BM: Umm...Libby?
YarnKittymon: : ::Libby's mother looks surprised, but only for a moment:: Libby, you haven't introduced me to your guest.
YarnKittymon: LB: Sorry. Mother, this is Becky. Becky, Mrs. Williamson.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles apologetically at Becky::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::still looking startled:: Uh, hi Mrs. Williamson
YarnKittymon: MW: ::looks at Libby:: And do we have a *reason* for bringing a little girl home?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Your guess is as good as mine...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns:: What d'you mean 'we'?
YarnKittymon: MW: ::looks at Becky, rather taken-aback:: Children should be seen and not heard.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::rolls her eyes:: I knew this was a bad idea as soon as you mentioned your mother
YarnKittymon: MW: ::looks at Libby rather suspiciously::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: Fine. I don't know Becky very well, but I brought her home anyway. And if you don't like that you can leave.
YarnKittymon: MW: Libby!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Libby surprised:: I can leave if it's too much trouble, u don't need to fight over me
YarnKittymon: LB: ::narrows her eyes at her mother:: That won't be necessary.
YarnKittymon: MW: ::motions to the waiter, then, quietly:: You certainly brought a rude little girl, at any rate. Next time find one better-behaved.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Great, someone who doesn't like me. ::sarcastically:: That's a new experience
YarnKittymon: : ::the servant goes back and brings out three covered plates; sets one in front of each place; it's a roasted chicken breast and some vegetables and potatoes::
YarnKittymon: LB: Mother, she's my guest. We'll discuss this later.
YarnKittymon: MW: ::after praying over the food, tries to look more friendly towards Becky, though the effect isn't particularly pretty:: So...where are you from?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glances from Libby to her mother and then softly:: Scotland
YarnKittymon: MW: Really? Then what brings you here?
YarnKittymon: MW: ::the servant returns and pours a glass of wine for Libby and one for her mother, and brings a glass of milk for Becky::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Nothing really. It was just someplace to be
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after a moment:: She's been a lot of places. But I think she'd rather not talk about it.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::takes a fork and starts picking at the food silently::
YarnKittymon: MW: ::frowns, then looks at Libby:: So, where did you meet Becky?
YarnKittymon: LB: Coney Island.
YarnKittymon: MW: Oh. Is she part of that...*show* you're doing?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at Becky silently::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::doesn't look libby in the eye:: You already know what i think about all that
YarnKittymon: LB: ::half-smiles at her mother:: I'm afraid Becky has the same opinion of the show as you do, Mother.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glances up at Mrs Williamson:: Really?
YarnKittymon: MW: If anyone has strange abilities, it's best left a secret. Parading people around like freaks of nature...it's uncivilized.
Quantum Catz: BM: And dangerous
YarnKittymon: MW: ::nods:: Riots and fistfights break out on Coney Island all the time. No self-respecting socialite would be caught dead there anymore.
Quantum Catz: BM: You never know who might see you
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sighs a bit, not arguing::
