(Back to March 3, 1928 part 2)


YarnKittymon: It's a relatively warm day, requiring only a light coat instead of a heavy one. It's also sunny.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is at the Freak Show bright and early; leaves the door unlocked but not open, as it's still warmer inside than out::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sits on the ground outside, wearing a thin coat over her usual yellow summer dress::
Hgriffithk: ER: ::turns up carrying a large folder under one arm, smiles when she sees Becky:: Good Morning
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::looks up:: hiya
Quantum Catz: BM: Libby's inside
Hgriffithk: ER: Thanks ::opens the door:: Hello, Libby?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is wearing a dress, sitting on the stage, her legs hanging off, but stands when Erin enters:: Erin! I'd say you were early or late, but I guess I didn't specify a time last week...
Hgriffithk: ER: Oh...what time should I be here? ::grins:: Anyway, I brought something I wanted you to look at ::takes the folder she's carrying and lays it out open on the stage::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks inside::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::is whearing a blue suit and a dark fedora hat. walks up to Becky:: Hey kido, how are you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs and smiles:: Been worse. You seem happy
Hgriffithk: ER : It's just some designs I did for you, anything you like the look of here? ::inside the folder are many postcard-sized pictures of poster designs::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: They're all lovely, Erin!
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: Yeah I've been looking forward to this, why do you seem so down?
Hgriffithk: ER: ::blushes:: Thanks, is there any in particular you like the look of?
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::makes a face and then chuckles:: You haven't met Libby's mother. Libby and Erin are both inside
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at them and finally selects a couple of the pictures that look a bit gaudy::
Hgriffithk: ER: Personally, I liked this this one ::points to a poster advertising the 'Angel of Lightening' with a scary looking portrait of Alex ::
EM: ::gives Becky a puzzled look:: Libby's mother?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods, smiling:: That one too...I wonder how he'll like the nickname...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::grins:: It's not really upto him though, is it ::winks::
Quantum Catz:
BM: Somehow Libby managed to convince me to stay with her - and wear a coat. ::chuckles:: If i didn't already know her power i'd swear it was mind control
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: True enough...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::marks off the choices Libby made, nodding in approval:: I can have them done for you by next week, if that's alright
EM: ::smiles:: That was pretty nice of her, but I thought you had some parents to live with.
YarnKittymon: LB: That would be wonderful. Is $10 apiece all right?
Quantum Catz: BM: Parents? ...oh... i don't have any family
Hgriffithk: ER: Of course, payment on completion and customer sastisfaction ::smiles::
EM: ::frowns:: No family? That's too bad, but I just it explains a lot.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::grins:: Splendid.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::grins back::: Oh, Is that Ethan I hear outside?
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::indignantly:: explains what?
YarnKittymon: LB: I think so...maybe we should bring him in...
SquirtLaWort: EM: the way you act.
Hgriffithk: ER: Yeah ::walks to door:: Ethan?
EM: ::turns to who's calling his name:: Yes?
Hgriffithk: ER: Heya, Libby's inside ::turns to Becky:: prehaps you should come on in too
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::vanishes and reappears inside, her coat gone::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::walks inside with Erin::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Good morning, Ethan.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles back:: 'Morning Libby.
YarnKittymon: LB: I hope you two worked on your acts a bit...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ..a bit.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smirks:: Are they gonna wear fancy costumes too?
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, that *would* be best...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks worried:: costumes?
Hgriffithk: ER: Oh, that'd be great fun! ::grins broadly::
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::laughs at Ethan's worried expression::
YarnKittymon: LB: I'd love to take you to see a *real* freak show--and by that, of course, I mean a *fake* freak show--but it's the wrong season...
Hgriffithk: ER ::frowns:: Shame...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Well, perhaps this summer...
SquirtLaWort: EM: Why not, I've never been to one.
Hgriffithk: ER: No, me neither
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks at Ethan:: So you say you worked on your act a bit?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::frowns:: Well..I was thinking we could get some hoops or something. to have people float though that way it might not seem that there are strings attached.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods seriously:: But how many times a day do you think you could do that?
SquirtLaWort: EM: I don't know, how many times are we talking here?
YarnKittymon: LB: If you actually want to make some money, at least once an hour--preferably more.
SquirtLaWort: EM: I can do that, I might get pretty tired after a while but I can handle it.
Hgriffithk: ER: So how many times in one day?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::pauses, counting on her fingers:: Probably ten...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::blinks in surprise:: Ten? ::sighs deeply::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::pauses:: Unless that's a problem...
SquirtLaWort: EM: Ten hours is a long time but I've worked longer days before.
Hgriffithk: ER: No, no problem. Is not time, it's distance that tires me. Ten hours is fine ::smiles weakly::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks a little concerned:: Really?
Quantum Catz: BM: Glad i'm not doing this
YarnKittymon: LB: You couldn't teleport once an hour?
SquirtLaWort: EM: I thought you were going to be in the show, Becky.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Maybe, if i had to...but not continuously
YarnKittymon: LB: She's...::pauses::...morally opposed to this whole thing.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: I'm just tagging along for the ride to see what happens
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smirks:: Maybe we should charge her.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::looks to Becky:: I know how you feel, but you'd be a great act...I hope you change your mind, then
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles at Ethan, then looks back at Becky:: Are you opposed to running the lights?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sticks her tongue out at Ethan and then turns to Erin:: I'm not taking the risk of using my powers that much even if i did want to take part. ::shrugs at Libby:: I guess i could do lights
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Then there's no need to charge you. ::looks back at Erin:: Did you work on your act at all, or were you too busy with your art?
Hgriffithk: ER: I'm sorry...I haven't thought about my act at all ::looks down at the floor::
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, you can think about it now. I'm not sure...it would be best if you used volunteers from the audience...
Hgriffithk: ER: Yeah, it will be a nusiance having all these vision centres inside my head though...I'm not sure how to close them once a links been established ::frowns::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::a bit surprised:: Oh...perhaps you could practice that...cutting off those links, I mean...
Hgriffithk: ER: Yeah, I've been practicing that with yours. I can find a way to dull it...so it shouldn't affect me. It's nothing to be oncerned about though. It's just like having a song you can't get out your head. Distracting, but not harmul
YarnKittymon: LB: ::half-laughs:: But having a hundred songs in your head by the end of the summer...
Quantum Catz: BM: Creepy
SquirtLaWort: EM: I'll say.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::laughs:: Don't worry, I'll work on it. The more important matter justnow is my actual act...::looks around at Becky and Ethan:: Any ideas?
EM: I'm not even sure how your powers would regester on stage.
Hgriffithk: ER: I know, anything I can think of could just be so easily faked ::frowns::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs:: I figure we pick a volunteer from the audience and blindfold you, Erin. Of course it *could* be faked, but if we have enough showmanship no one will care...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::looks concerned:: But do you think the audience will take kindly to the idea that they have to 'link' to me first
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks:: They won't know what they're getting into...
Quantum Catz: BM: Just don't tell them what ur doing
Hgriffithk: ER: ::laughs:: I was just afraid that there would be a shortage of volunteers...
EM: I'm sure most of the people would want *something* to happen even if they have to link with you.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs, then pauses thoughtfully:: It'd probably be best if you seem to be seeing through my eyes first...that'll make the audience think you're faking, and everyone will want to know if you are or not...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::giggles:: Good idea Libby!
Hgriffithk: ER: What sort of things would I have to see? ::thinks:: It would have to be something interesting to watch...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Or listen to. I'm not exactly sure...I was just thinking things inside the room...
Hgriffithk: ER: Right...or describe random members of the audience? Chosen by the volunteer of course.
YarnKittymon: LB: That's even better! That gets everyone involved...
Hgriffithk: ER: Oh good ::relieved:: So what would I wear then?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::grins:: The prettier, the shorter the skirt, the better.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::laughs:: Fantastic, I love dressing up!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at Ethan:: I'm not sure what kind of attire would be appropriate for a man, though. Any ideas?
SquirtLaWort: EM: not a skirt.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::laughs::
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::giggles:: I dunno... could suit you
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs for quite a while:: That's...one kind of freak show...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laugh:: I don't want to be a part of *that* kind of freak show.
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, I didn't intend to *run* that kind of freak show...but if we don't get much business, I might not have much of a choice...::grinning::
Hgriffithk: ER: ::giggles immaturely::
EM: ::smiles:: If it comes to that I'll leave the state.
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, New York's a pretty big state...
SquirtLaWort: EM: You're going to talk me into wearing womens clothing.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: I know, I know...besides, Alex is odd-looking enough...
SquirtLaWort: EM: I think Alex could get away with it.
YarnKittymon: LB: I have no doubt he could, Ethan. And he'd get a lot of laughs, too.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs:: I think I'd get a lot of laughs on that too.
Hgriffithk: ER: He does sorta look like a girl though, doesn't he? I've never seen a guy with hair that long before, ever.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: Maybe an Indian...
SquirtLaWort: EM: Dosen't look Indian to me, he probably has it that long to get attention.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods:: No; *he's* not an Indian...but they're the only ones I can imagine with hair that long...


YarnKittymon: : ::there's a sharp knock at the door::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks over curiously:: I wonder who that is. ::Ethan is closest to the door:: Get that, Ethan, would you?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Sure ::opens the door::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a well-dressed man outside; he has short dark-brown hair and striking green eyes (though not as striking as Libby's):: Good day...the sign outside said this was a...ah...
SquirtLaWort: EM: A Freak Show?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods:: Yes. I was a bit curious...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: would you like to come in?
YarnKittymon: : Well, if it wouldn't be any trouble. ::walks inside::
Squidged: ER: ::nods at the man in welcome:: Hello
EM: Libby can tell you all about the Freak Show.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods back to Erin:: Good morning. ::glances at Ethan, then looks up at Libby::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::rather surprised:: Mister McHenry...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::rises an eyebrow:: You know him?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks:: I know most the rich folk in this town.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at McHenry then Libby:: I see..
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smiles:: Well, I suppose you could put it that way. At any rate, I was just curious to see this--"freak show." Nothing more.
Squidged: ER: ::sits on the stage, swinging her legs:: Well, here we are...
YarnKittymon: : You weren't...quite what I had been expecting...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: Well not all of us are here
YarnKittymon: : Oh? Who else should be here, then?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns:: Why d'you want to know?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Alex and Jasmine..
YarnKittymon: : ::scowls at Becky:: Some people are interested in the supernatural.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mutters sarcastically:: sure
YarnKittymon: : ::looks rather offended::
YarnKittymon: LB: Libby's Freak Show, home of the little girl who talks back to her elders. ::smiles::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::shrugs:: don't be offended, she's just a kid.
Squidged: ER: ::jumps down from stage:: Yeah, home to a whole lot more aswell. Were you looking for a demonstration Mr McHenry?
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::looks up at Erin in surprise::
YarnKittymon: : ::smiles:: Perhaps, if it wouldn't be too much trouble.
Squidged: ER: ::laughs:: Shame Alex isn't here then, Mr McHenry. Or prehaps it's just aswell ::looks to Libby::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: If you have that problem worked out, go ahead, Erin....
Squidged: ER: ::grins:: Great! Would you like to take a seat please, sir? ::gestures towards one of the benches::
YarnKittymon: : ::does so, smirking, but looking a bit apprehensive::
Squidged: ER: ::sits down next to him:: Right, I need you to give me your hand. You may feel a sensation, but that's normal ::smiles::
YarnKittymon: : ::frowns:: May I ask what you're going to do?
Squidged: ER: I was just getting to that...I will link with you minds vision centre and will be able to see ::pauses for dramatic effect:: through your eyes
YarnKittymon: : ::shies back a little:: That sounds dangerous!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mockingly:: scared?
Squidged: ER: No, not at all ::smiles reasurringly::
Squidged: ER: Do you wish to continue, sir?
YarnKittymon: : ::ignores Becky, frowning:: Perhaps I'd better not....
Squidged: ER: ::flustered:: Oh no, it's really not dangerous at all...it will be fine, really...
EM: ::smirks:: Oh come on she's not going to bite.
YarnKittymon: : Have any of you tried it?
Squidged: ER: Libby, tell him it's quite safe
YarnKittymon: LB: ::pauses, then nods, smiling:: Quite.
YarnKittymon: : ::looks around, still a little suspicious::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::frowns at the man:: Libby has done it before and she's perfectly fine.
Squidged: ER: ::looks to Mr McHenry:: See?
YarnKittymon: : ::finally:: Well, all right. ::hesitantly holds out his hand::
Squidged: ER: ::smiles satisfyingly, then clasps her hand through his. Her eyes are closed in concentration:: Do you feel anything?
YarnKittymon: : ::half-smiling:: A little something, yes...
Squidged: ER: Good, that's normal ::opens her eyes and takes her hand away:: Painless wasn't it? ::smiles:: Now Libby, if you would like to ensure this is a fair test.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: We haven't any blindfolds yet...why don't you turn your back to him and I'll cover your eyes, unless someone has a scarf or something...
YarnKittymon: : ::Erin suddenly just plain disappears::
YarnKittymon: : ::shies back, eyes wide:: What...
SquirtLaWort: EM: oh no..
Quantum Catz: BM: ::blinks:: well, he got his demonstration
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after a pause:: Don't worry; she'll be back...sometime...
SquirtLaWort: EM: And that is Libby's power.
YarnKittymon: : I...see...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::half smiles at the man:: Not to worry she'll come back..
YarnKittymon: : ::frowns::
SquirtLaWort: EM: Look it happens all the time here, Erin's probably disapeared more than any of us.
YarnKittymon: : Who decides who disappears?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at Libby:: Umm. Libby dose but she dosen't really decide anything it just happens.
YarnKittymon: : ::eyes widen:: Excuse me?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sheepishly:: It's not really a big deal...it's usually people I know who...
SquirtLaWort: EM: I hope all this isn't scarying you.
YarnKittymon: : Who wouldn't be afraid of disappearing?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs:: I guess I'm the only one then.
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm not scared
YarnKittymon: : ::shakes his head; finally, looking at Libby:: You're quite irresponsible, you know.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glares at McHenry:: No she's not
SquirtLaWort: EM: She hasn't done anything to you!
YarnKittymon: : ::looks like he's about to say something, then changes his mind, frowning:: I think I'll leave, before I just "disappear" as well. You DO realize your show will fail if any harm comes to any of your guests.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks down; quietly:: She'll be fine...
Quantum Catz: BM: Nothing will happen to anyone here
SquirtLaWort: EM: No harm is going to come to anyone I'll make sure of that! ::pauses for a moment:: And if your going to leave then leave.
YarnKittymon: : ::smirks, looking at Ethan:: *Right.* But I think I shall. ::goes to the door::
SquirtLaWort: EM: What a coward.. He acts more like a women than a man.
Quantum Catz: BM: He acts like a snake
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head slightly, sighing:: But he's right...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks down at Libby:: What are you talking about? I thought you wanted to do this.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: I do...but if I make some random customer disappear--perhaps for several hours or longer...::laughs nervously:: I mean, sure, people love attractions where they might get hurt, but...
Quantum Catz: BM: That couldn't actually *hurt* them though
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: Becky's right. No one's going to get hurt, not by you anyways.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: But to just lose a day of your life...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::puts his hand on Libby's shoulder:: Hey, What's wrong with you? Just because of one snooty guy your going to throw your dream away?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs a little:: My dream was to find others like us...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Well, you've done it then
YarnKittymon: LB: But there might be more of us. ::smiles slightly:: And I wanted to make all of you rich, too...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs:: Right. Well we won't get rich mopping about.
Quantum Catz: BM: Money's not that important anyway
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles at Becky:: Perhaps not to you...
SquirtLaWort: EM: Being rich might be nice. But I just want to do the show with everyone.
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, that's what we'll do, then. Even if it *is* dangerous.
Quantum Catz: BM: Which it isn't
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks:: I thought you were against this idea, Becky.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: Looks like she changed her mind.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sticks out her tongue:: i just don't like people suggesting we're dangerous
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smirks:: Trying to catch flies, Becky?
YarnKittymon: LB: Well. I still think Alex is dangerous, no matter what you say.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::starts to glare at ethan but finds herself smiling instead:: ::turns to libby with a shrug:: if he didn't have complete control he wouldn't have been able to do his angel impersonation before
YarnKittymon: LB: ::half-smiling:: You just watch. He'll burn down all of Coney Island before the season's up.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs:: Well he's gone this long without burning the city down.. So maybe your wrong.
YarnKittymon: LB: Any man who has to resort to striking trees with lightning to get someone's attention has the potential to be quite dangerous.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: Okay, maybe just a bit dangerous
SquirtLaWort: EM: He is dangerous, but there's nothing we can really do to stop him so the only thing to do it be careful around him.
YarnKittymon: LB: If I really thought he was that dangerous, I'd tell him to leave...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::gives Libby a puzzled look:: You just said you were sure he would burn down Coney Island. If that's not dangerous enough than what is?
YarnKittymon: LB: I was half-joking, Ethan. ::smirks:: Half.
Quantum Catz: BM: Coney's gonna have fires in the future anyway, whether Alex is here or not
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at Becky:: How would you know?
Quantum Catz: BM: Oops ::grins:: Didn't i mention i could travel through time?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::eyes widen:: No you didn't. ::grins:: That's amazing!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: it's just like teleporting to me
SquirtLaWort: EM: Yeah but you know what's going to happen in the future, A lot of people would give anything for that.
YarnKittymon: LB: Then they'd be fools.
Quantum Catz: BM: They can have the future - it's nicer here
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at Libby then Becky:: Hm. Is that right? It's all down hill from here?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: I don't believe that. But I don't think it's wise to ask too many questions...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::sighs:: Your probably right.
Quantum Catz: BM: I do know that your "Freak Show" thing's at least going to get off the ground though, so we can all stop being so depressed. D'you think any of the rides are on today?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: A carousel probably is; I doubt anything more exciting, though.
SquirtLaWort: EM: It's not raining today so something might be open.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::rolls her eyes:: Wonderful


YarnKittymon: : ::Erin suddenly reappears, sitting on the stage::
Quantum Catz: BM: heya
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles at Erin:: welcome back
Hgriffithk: ER: ::blinks and looks around, sighs:: Again...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: I'm sorry.
Hgriffithk: ER: How long have I been gone?
YarnKittymon: LB: Not terribly long. ::smiles:: Long enough to frighten Mr. McHenry away, though.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::gasps:: Oh no! What happened?
EM: No big deal, he was a coward.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: complete wimp
SquirtLaWort: EM: He saw you disapear and thought he might too so he left.
YarnKittymon: LB: He was afraid *he* might disappear as well...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::laughs weakly:: Guess we just lost a customer
Quantum Catz:
BM: I didn't like him anyway
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks down, then smiles:: And then I got rather concerned and sober but Becky actually insisted the show would go through fine.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::brightens:: Oh, I suppose that's alright then
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Well, at least you got to *almost* practice your act...::pauses, smirking::...though I'm sure there's *someone* who might let you practice on him if you needed it...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::pauses:: You mean Raymond?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs, smiling::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs::
Hgriffithk: ER: ::laughs:: He's all very nice, but I think I want as little more to do with him as possible ::wrinkles her nose::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Really? Older men sometimes make fine lovers...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smirks at Libby:: She's got a point.
Hgriffithk: ER: Eurgh! ::Sticks out her tounge
EM: ::laughs::
YarnKittymon: : ::an envelope comes through the letter slot of the door; Libby doesn't notice::
Hgriffithk: ER: Oh look ::points to the letter box:: You got mail
YarnKittymon: LB: Oh! ::goes over and picks it up; it's simply addressed to Libby, with the Freak Show building address; Libby opens the envelope and reads the letter, frowning::
Quantum Catz: BM: What does it say?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::hands the letter to the girl:: You may read it if you like.

Dear Libby,

by the time you get this I'll be on a slow boat to Africa. Iwas offered a position on a team to replace someone else who had to cancel at the last minute and I've accepted. This trip can take anywhere from 6 months to two years. I would have told you this in person, but it was a last minute thing.

Part of the reason I'm leaving is because I think I'm much too dangerous to be in your show. How can a quick change of hair and eye color be dangerous you ask? Well, the long and short of it is I have more talents as you call them. Something that makes me faster and stronger and very dangerous. It's hard for me to explain, but it makes me something more likea cat. I seem to get angrier easier when I'm like that, and that's almost gotten me into trouble before.

When you came to me about the Freak Show, I needed the money, badly. I thought I could control myself, so I joined. But then, when Ethan and Alex were fighting I growled while I hadn't changed and so I think I've gotten worse. So I've gone off where I think I'll be a lesser danger if I get into one of my moods

I've sent the clothes back to the Freak Show address as I don't knowwhere you live. I wish you all well.

Jasmine Monceau

P.S.You can show this to the rest for explanation.

Quantum Catz: BM: Wow! She's really gone?
Hgriffithk: ER: What? Whose gone?
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::hands the letter to erin:: jasmine, apparently
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks over Erin's shoulder to read the letter::
Hgriffithk: ER: ::reads the letter through:: Wow, and she never even said a thing...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs nervously:: Who would've guessed *she* was the dangerous one?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::frowns:: So shes not coming back then?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::soberly:: I suppose not. She never said anything...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Why would she? it's her problem
Hgriffithk: ER: But...why would she leave? We could have helped her through it, that's part of what we're all here for...
YarnKittymon: LB: She would've made a good act, too...for the show...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::sighs:: She should have stayed. What's going she going to do in Africa? Roam around in the jungle?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smirks:: She'd probably feel more at home there
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: Well, it's her choice. I'd like to travel, myself, someday...
SquirtLaWort: EM: I wish she would have asked us for help..
YarnKittymon: LB: As do I, but it's a bit late for that now. I'm not even sure that Becky could find her, and she's probably well on her way to Africa by now...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::has a distant look in her eyes:: Africa...so far away from us...
EM: ::looks at Becky:: Hmm, maybe we should at least try to find her.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head, frowning:: I doubt she wants to be found....
Quantum Catz: BM: And say what exactly? How could we help her anyway?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: Besides, the boat won't turn around, even if Jasmine wishes to return.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::shrugs:: I guess your right.
Quantum Catz: BM: i don't know why she even bothered to explain it to us anyway. I wouldn't. i'd just have left
Hgriffithk: ER: Just leave? Without explaination? I couldn't...
EM: ::smirks:: Well some people have manners.
Quantum Catz: BM: Manners? Jasmine's only met us once and Libby twice!
Hgriffithk: ER: ::to becky:: Don't you even care she's gone? To a strange foreign country with dangerous powers?
YarnKittymon: LB: Africa's dangerous too.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::to becky:: Yes she only met us once and she was nice enough to tell us why she left. That's called manners.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: I could try looking for her if you want
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: It was her choice, whether to tell us *why* or not. But since we were depending on her for the show, it's only polite that she told us she had to leave...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::concerned:: If she's gone for good, will we be able to find someone to replace her in time?
YarnKittymon: LB: We may just have to work with what we have...but we've some time before the show starts.
Hgriffithk: ER: How long do we have?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs:: I was hoping to start if there were any sunny weekends in April or May--but the real crowds don't come to Coney until the season starts, on Memorial Day.
YarnKittymon: : ::Ethan suddenly disappears::
Quantum Catz: BM: What's Memorial Day?
Hgriffithk: ER: Umm, Ethan just disappeared right? ::looks to Libby::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns, eyes wider; shakes her head at Ethan's disappearance:: Between everyone missing practices and moving to Africa and disappearing, it's a wonder anyone's left at all...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head again, then turns to Becky:: The end of May.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: You'll need to start getting used to Libby's power, it seems to be happening more often lately
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, *I'm* not used to it yet.
Hgriffithk: ER: Yeah, I've never actually seen it happen though - seeing as it's usually ME who's disappearing...
Quantum Catz:
BM: I don't see what the big deal is - what libby does isn't much different from my teleporting, what you experience i mean
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs:: I guess I've never sent anyone forward enough for it to be a problem....but if I did...::quickly shakes her head:: So, you think Alex'll ever show, or perhaps we should call it a day...even though it's awfully early...
Quantum Catz: BM: You didn't mention a time last week - he could be hours
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: Well, we've *been* meeting in the mornings; I'd assumed he'd figured that out...::half-laughs::...which was probably foolish of me...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: Probably
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns, then brightens:: Now that I think about it, I think there may be a circus today...
Quantum Catz: BM: Cool, what sort of stuff'll be on?
YarnKittymon: LB: Oh, elephants, clowns, trapeze artists, perhaps other animals...
Hgriffithk: ER: ::grins:: I've never seen an elephant before
Quantum Catz:
BM: Me either. We need to go! ::grins at Libby::
Hgriffithk: ER: ::grins hopefully at Libby too::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Well, I guess you twisted my arm enough. ::grins at Erin:: Shall we invite Raymond?
Hgriffithk: ER: Ermm, prehaps we shouldn't. Anyway, I'me sure he has better things to do...
Quantum Catz:
BM: Yeah, if we invite him he might try to give away more of his kittens
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: All right, then.
Hgriffithk: ER: ::sighs, relieved::
Quantum Catz:
BM: Great!
