(Back to March 10, 1928 part 1)


YarnKittymon: : ::Ethan suddenly reappears, pretty much at the same place he disappeared from::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks a bit surpirzed:: so that's what it's like..
Quantum Catz: BM: Wanna go to the circus, Ethan?
CleoDominic: :theres a knock at the door:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::answers it hesitantly::
CleoDominic: AX: :walks in slowly, doesn't look up:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks a little surprised:: I hadn't expected you to knock.
CleoDominic: AX: :mummers:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::turns back towards Ethan, glancing at Alex:: Well, we're going to circus. You gentlemen are welcome to come if you'd like.
SquirtLaWort: EM: umm alright.
CleoDominic: AX: :whos paying?:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks:: Who do you think? Maybe the rich dame in front of you...
CleoDominic: AX: :Oh, sorry....: :stares into space with a sad look:
CleoDominic: AX: :Well what are you guys standing around for? Lets go!: :goes out the door:
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::follows Alex out the door::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs, picking up her coat and following Alex:: And you know where this circus is, Alex?
CleoDominic: AX: :yeee:
Quantum Catz: BM: ::skips beside Libby::
SquirtLaWort: ((yeee?))
Quantum Catz: ((i took that to be yes))
SquirtLaWort: ((oh))
CleoDominic: ((yeah hes was trying to say yes, but missed the s on purpose}}
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: Well, if you hadn't spent so long tracking down the circus, perhaps you could have showed up on time.
CleoDominic: AX: :Walks slowly:
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: You didn't set a time, Libby
YarnKittymon: LB: ::half-smiles:: Well, you got me there. But I think I said this *morning.* ::glances at her wristwatch:: Or *meant* that, anyway. But I guess it *is* technically morning, yet...
CleoDominic: AX: :why are we going to the circus anyways? Just to see some dumb animals and people:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::primly:: Then you don't have to go, Alex. I'll give you the subway fare to go home if you need it.
Quantum Catz: BM: But it'll be fun!
CleoDominic: AX: :I suppose it will be fun...gotta get out of this mood anyways..:
SquirtLaWort: EM: What mood?
CleoDominic: AX: :Glares evily at Ethan: :shut up!:
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smirks:: Oh that mood.
CleoDominic: AX: :Still mad that you had the nerve to hit me...:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sighs, then heads towards the other side of the island at a brisk pace::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::shrugs:: Well, you were being a jerk
Quantum Catz: BM: ::giggles and then hurries to keep up with Libby::
CleoDominic: AX: :picks up tthe pase:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::glances back at Alex, but really doesn't feel like asking what's wrong::
YarnKittymon: : ::after a little while they can see a gaudy circus tent erected on a formerly vacant lot; there's a few wagon-ish cages in the front, but before that, a small ticket booth::
Squidged: ER: Cool! Wonder what are in those cages?
AX: :probally for Ethan...:
SquirtLaWort: EM: oh so mature Alex.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles::
CleoDominic: AX: :Mature! I'm not the one hitting people like monkeys!:
Squidged: ER: ::glares at the two of them but doesn't say anything::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::turns back:: You two, stop bickering. ::goes to the ticket booth and buys tickets for everyone::
CleoDominic: AX: :Yes mother:
Squidged: ER: ::offers some money to Libby:: It's alright Libby, let me get my own
YarnKittymon: LB: ::very nearly says something rather nasty to Alex, but bites her tongue; turns back to Erin:: Please, let me. I should compensate you at least a bit for all the time you've spent on this silly show...
Squidged: ER: ::hesitates, then smiles:: Alright then
AX: :I would pay, but I don't have any money:
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::takes out his wallet:: I can pay for myself.
CleoDominic: AX: :lower his head:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: I've already purchased the tickets. Please don't worry about it. ::hands them each a ticket::
CleoDominic: AX: :Thanks Libby... :has a tear fall:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks rather surprised; seeing Alex cry makes him look even more like a girl; finally:: Are you all right?
CleoDominic: AX: :wipes it away quickly: :Yes yes, I'm fine! Don't worry abouts me!:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at him a moment more, then shrugs, heading into the circus::
CleoDominic: AX: :Follows them into the circus and looks around him:
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a few cages with different animals in them, and a chained elephant near the back; a man politely informs them that it's half an hour 'til the next show, so they might want to look at the animals outside for a bit::
Squidged: ER: Libby, can we go and look at the elephant?
Quantum Catz:
BM: Yeah, i wanna see the elephant too
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs, smirking at Becky:: Well, *I* prefer the cats. But everyone can see what he likes best. And probably everything else as well; we've plenty of time.
CleoDominic: AX: :Elephants? That got big ears,and a trunk, and eats peanuts...:
YarnKittymon: : ::they can see the elephant even from the entrance::
YarnKittymon: LB: Yes, Alex; I think we're all aware of that.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at Erin and Becky:: Well, lets go see the elephants.
CleoDominic: AX: :wish I was an elephant...:
Quantum Catz: BM: ::laughs:: Why?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::heads towards the elephant::
CleoDominic: AX: :I...I....wounldnt haffta worry...sniff..hick..:
SquirtLaWort: EM: ah geez.. He's drunk.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks:: Perhaps.... Alex, if you want to tell me what's the matter, I'll listen. But I'm not going to beg you to tell me.
Squidged: ER: ::looks at Alex with concern, but is eager to see the elephant closer ^_^::
AX: :sniff well...I...My band just broke up, because one of the members are getting married, and the other is going t college...and and..:: :steps back:
YarnKittymon: LB: That's too bad, but you've a place here, if you take it seriously. ::looks at him expectantly::
CleoDominic: AX: :But...you don't even like me! Your just stuck with me because I got strange powers!:: :steps back so more:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs:: So I prefer to be treated with at least a modicum of respect.
CleoDominic: AX: :I mean it was bad enough that my girlfriend Stella dumped me for this rich dude....and now I lost my apartment..and...oh respect? Okay...:
YarnKittymon: : ::a voice says quietly, coming from a ways away:: Psst--hey, little girl!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks around uncertainly::
YarnKittymon: : ::there doesn't seem to be anyone around who could have said that; there's a few people around, but they look preoccupied; the only other things there are are the animals, a male lion, some kind of big dog thing, and some kind of cat creature which is touted as the brown tiger, but looks rather more like a very very very very VERY large housecat; its copper eyes are focused on Becky, its mouth hidden behind a paw::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::finally shrugs:: I'm sorry things are so bad for you right now, Alex, but they will get better.
CleoDominic: AX: :half listening: :Looking around: :Hey, hey...Becky...?:
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns at the cat::
YarnKittymon: : ::the voice whispers:: Get me out of here and I'll do anything...
Squidged: ER: ::sighs in despair, despite the distraction of the wierd cat talking to Becky, is the world against her seeing this elephant?::
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::ignores Alex and takes a step towards the animal::
CleoDominic: AX: :Becky, wait...becky!:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::glances at Erin:: You may see the elephant if you'd like; this area isn't so big that you'll get lost.
Squidged: ER: Yay! ::runs off towards the elephant::
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::turns to Alex with a frown:: What?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat looks up at Alex, alarmed; then busily licks its paw::
YarnKittymon: : ::the elephant looks rather tired and not particularly happy; it's wearing a shackle on one of its back legs::
CleoDominic: AX: I I just sense something bad...:
YarnKittymon: : ::one would swear the cat was narrowing its eyes at Alex::
YarnKittymon: : ::a dog barks, coming to the edge of the bars of the giant cat's cage; the cat turns to it and makes a strange hissing/meowing sound, and the dog whines and goes back to curling up unobtrusively in the corner of the cage::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::tilts her head sympathetically:: the poor dog
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat mewls at Becky, looking rather unhappy::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mutters:: i never liked cats much
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat frowns, looking down, then brightens and glances at the dog, then back at Becky::
CleoDominic: AX: :Hey guys...I gotta go...I got somethingt do today...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::primly:: It'd better not be anything drastic.
SquirtLaWort: EM: What are you going to do?
CleoDominic: AX: :Oh go rub a bank you know the usually stuff I do on my spare time:
YarnKittymon: LB: If you're robbing a bank you needn't worry about losing a few band members. You could probably hire some more.
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat looks up at Becky again, whispering, and this time she can see his lips move:: If you get me out of here you can have my dog.
CleoDominic: AX: :yeah I know right! well see ya later! ::runs off::
Squidged: ER: ::returns looking a little disappointed::
EM: Yeah bye.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::whispers:: Your dog?
YarnKittymon: LB: You didn't like the elephant?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat whispers again:: Yeah. But you have to get me out first.
Squidged: ER: Well, it was alright I guess...not quite what I expected
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::teleports to stand right in front of the cage:: How are you talking?
YarnKittymon: LB: That's too bad. ::more brightly:: Well, once Coney's open for the season, there's more circuses, and bigger and better elephants.
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat's eyes widen; he doesn't talk as softly as he might:: How did you appear in front of me?
Squidged: ER: ::smiles and nods slowly::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: We may be a little too busy with our own show to visit many others. But I'm sure we can manage a weekend.
Quantum Catz: BM: I just did ::frowns:: What are you?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::to Erin:: Alex left in case your wondering..
Squidged: ER: Where?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat looks away, half-shrugging his shoulders:: I don't know. ::he looks up quickly:: Don't tell anyone I can talk; they won't believe you. And if they do, they'll be even meaner to me.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smriks:: To cry himself to sleep.
YarnKittymon: LB: I doubt that...
Squidged: ER: Oh, will he be alright do you think?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: I don't know. But he wasn't too eager to tell us what was wrong, so I doubt there's anything we could have done to help.
Squidged: ER: ::sighs and rolls her eyes:: Crazy...
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::sighs:: Yeah, that's what they're like but...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: no kidding, he sure seemed emotional today.
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat slouches down:: They don't feed me good and I'm lonely. Sometimes the visitors throw things at me.
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, worrying will do no good, for him *or* for us. Let's look at the other animals.
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't want to get in trouble here - i'm tired of running away from places
SquirtLaWort: EM: good idea. ::looks around:: Where's Becky?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat looks down, mewing once, pitifully::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs, looking around; spots her in front of one of the cages:: Looking at the so-called Brown Tiger, I think.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::bites her lip worriedly:: I don't think i can leave you though
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat pauses; softly:: Is your mom rich? You could ask her to buy me...
SquirtLaWort: EM: Hey Becky!
Squidged: ER: ::walks up beside Becky:: Hmm, it's a bit scrawny, isn't it?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat meows at them::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::was heading towards the lion's cage, but goes back to where the others are, looking curiously::
SquirtLaWort: EM: I thought you hated cats.
Squidged: ER: ::shudders:: Look, you can see all it's ribs. Bet they don't feed these animals properly.
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::grips the bars of the cage, frowning::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sighs:: Perhaps not. This isn't a zoo, though...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::whispers:: I could tell them, they'd understand
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat looks rather afraid, but doesn't say anything, of course::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::still gripping the cage:: You need to help him Libby
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks over quickly:: What? Becky, I don't have a menagerie...
Quantum Catz: BM: You don't understand...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: No, apparently I don't...
Quantum Catz: BM: He's trapped - this whole place is no better than the lab i was in
YarnKittymon: LB: ::eyes widen, then frowns, shrugging:: Animals aren't my concern, Becky. I'm sure there's a lot of them worse off than this cat.
Quantum Catz: BM: But he can talk!
SquirtLaWort: EM: Really?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat looks up at them:: Sssh!
Squidged: ER: ::stares sceptically at cat::
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat mewls and looks down::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles at the cat:: they're not like the others, they'll help you ::looks up at libby:: Won't you?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: I don't really see how I could, Becky...he *is* a handsome beast, but there's really no place for him at home...
Quantum Catz: BM: But you've got to!
SquirtLaWort: EM: If this cat can really talk you could put him in your show Libby.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::eyes widen:: I hadn't thought of that...
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat sshs them again::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glares at Ethan:: How is that better than being here?
SquirtLaWort: EM: We could at least feed him.
Quantum Catz: BM: And tell the world that he can talk
YarnKittymon: LB: ::whispers to Becky:: What do you want us to do? Release him in New York City? That would be even worse!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns at libby and then turns back to the cat:: tell me what to do and i'll do it. never mind them
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat's eyes widen; he looks around suspiciously, then whispers, though anyone nearby could probably hear:: I don't know; there's a padlock on the door. No one's ever offered to help me...
Squidged: ER: ::whispers to Libby:: How do we know it won't try to eat us all?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat hears this, and mrows in protest::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: I don't know...::more quietly::...but you heard it talk, didn't you?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Where are we going to keep it?
Quantum Catz: BM: Why does he have to be dangerous just cos he's not human?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs at Becky:: I'd hardly want a wild tiger running loose in my house, or my neighborhood...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Where i come from that's what people say about varients - i thought you'd be on his side
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat frowns, whispering:: I promise I wouldn't hurt anyone. ::more brightly:: Look, I have a dog! ::makes a strange mrowing noise, and the dog comes, tail wagging::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at the cat then at Libby:: Do you think he was once like Jasmine? You know and truned into a cat..
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: I don't know...Jasmine was worried that she'd lose control of herself...::pauses, then sighs, heading over to the ticket booth; asks to see whoever's in charge of the show::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::tilts her head at the cat:: Do you remember how you got here?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat looks down, petting the dog a little with its paw, which is a little hand-like, and has an opposable thumb; whispers:: I don't wanna talk too much. If they think I can talk they'll never let me go.
Squidged: ER: Do you have a name?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat nods, but doesn't say it::
SquirtLaWort: EM: Were you once human?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat shakes his head, then shrugs::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::comes back a few minutes later, smiling at Becky:: All right; I've purchased one brown tiger for Elizabeth Williamson's private menagerie. Happy?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat looks up, ears perked::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins and hugs libby:: I knew you'd help!
Squidged: ER: ::stares at Libby:: You can;'t be serious...
YarnKittymon: LB: He doesn't have to stay with us. Anyway, I thought you liked cats...
Squidged: ER: Yeah, little cats, cute cats...
YarnKittymon: : ::a couple strong-looking men approach the Brown Tiger cage, pushing a rather smaller cage on wheels; one opens the cat's cage and wrestles it out, shoving it into the smaller cage, but the cat hardly resists; the dog follows the cat into the tiny cage::
Squidged: ER: You bought the dog too?
YarnKittymon: LB: I gather they're a matched set... At any rate, I'll bet you a Coke that the cat doesn't maul you. All right? ::smiles::
Quantum Catz: BM: I like the dog - he's sweet
Squidged: ER: ::mutters something about the good a coke will do her after being eaten...::
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat mrews softly::
YarnKittymon: ::the men close and latch the cage, and roll it out to outside the circus::
YarnKittymon: LB: I telephoned a pair of moving men; they'll take him home.
SquirtLaWort: EM: That was really nice of you Becky, saving that tiger. I didn't know you had it in you.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::whispers:: Saving nothing; I'm hoping he'll agree to be in the show.
Squidged: ER: ::huffy:: I am NOT going to work with a talking cat.
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::shoots a dark look libby's way but can't help smiling:: I'm glad he's not trapped anymore
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat mrewls at Erin::
Squidged: ER: :glares at cat::
EM: I'll rather work with the cat than Alex anyday.
YarnKittymon: : ::almost glares back at Erin, but drops his gaze::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: The cat may not have such mood swings, at least.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs:: I hope not.
YarnKittymon: : ::in a few minutes, a couple other men come and roll the cage back towards the subway line; Libby follows::
Squidged: ER: ::hands on hips:: So I guess we're not staying for the show, then?
Quantum Catz:
BM: Of course not, circuses are horrible and cruel
YarnKittymon: LB: Becky! I thought you *wanted* to go to the circus!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::folds her arms, looking sadly at the cat, thinking of her time in the lab:: I've changed my mind
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: You don't understand, Becky...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns back:: Understand what?
YarnKittymon: LB: You've never heard of the midget city, have you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::suspiciously:: What's that?
YarnKittymon: LB: "Lillaputia," they called it. A scale village, built for midgets. They performed for patrons, but had their own lives, among others of their kind.
Squidged: ER: What's your point?
YarnKittymon: LB: The midgets who lived there *enjoyed* it. It was the only place on earth where they could live among people who accepted them in their off-time. People like them.
Squidged: ER: But midgets have human rights, at least. These animals don't look all that happy, and there's nothing to ensure there treatment is as kind
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: I'm not defending this circus. But the idea of putting on a show--it doesn't *have* to be inhumane. Mine certainly won't be.
YarnKittymon: : ::once they're out of sight of the circus, the men pushing the cage make a sharp left and head towards the freak show::
Squidged: ER: Ummm, Libby? ::looks at Libby doubtfully:: Exactly how far have you thought this through? What if he doesn't want to be in your show?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::non-chalantly:: Well, how *else* is he going to make a living?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: I'm tired of having this same fight. I'm not against the show - i guess i'm just worried about what'll happen if someone *believes* it. Someone who isn't as nice as you. Someone who doesn't mind being inhumane
Squidged: ER: ::still looks doubtful::
Quantum Catz:
BM: Even the cat realised that there are people out there who like doing experiments, who don't care if they're being mean!
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat mewls::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::half-smiles, as they reach the Freak Show building:: Well, I'm going to give it a try, anyway. ::smiles at the men:: Just charge it to Elizabeth Williamson. Thank you. ::unlocks the door, and with an effort, pushes the cage inside::
SquirtLaWort: EM: Hey kiddo don't worry so much.
Squidged: ER: ::watches Libby struggling with the cage, but doesn't offer to help::
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::smiles wryly:: And here i thought it was gonna be a fun day
YarnKittymon: LB: ::once they're inside and the door is closed, unlatches the cage::
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat, and his dog, quickly come out; the cat stretches, yawning, then looks up at them, in awe:: Thank you...
SquirtLaWort: EM: err.. Your welcome.
Squidged: ER: ::hangs back, near the door::
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::grins::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles:: I'm Ethan, what's your name?
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat looks up, plainly smiling:: Daniel.
YarnKittymon: : ::the cat looks up at Becky, nudging his dog towards her:: His name's-- ::makes a strange noise sounding kind of vaguely like "Rarif":: He's real friendly and likes when you pet the top of his head.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: You mean i really get the dog? Don't you want him to stay with you?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::quietly:: I said you could have him if you got me out.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::rubs the dog's head:: Well, yeah, but he's yours. You don't *have* to give him to me
YarnKittymon: DN: Yes I do. I promised. Anyone who breaks a promise is mean.


YarnKittymon: : ::Ethan suddenly disappears::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks rather shocked; whines a bit::
YarnKittymon: DN: Why'd he go away? ::looks at Becky:: Did you do it?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitantly:: No... it was Libby
YarnKittymon: DN: ::ears go back, tail down:: I don't wanna disappear...
Squidged: ER: ::considers the possibility of Daniel disappearing and smiles slightly to herself::
Quantum Catz:
BM: Hey, i do it all the time, it doesn't hurt ::shrugs:: And u've always got to reappear
YarnKittymon: DN: ::one ear goes forward:: Really? Is it fun?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: Not exactly - it's just like everything around u suddenly changes
YarnKittymon: DN: Oh. ::pauses:: But it's probably exciting, huh?
Squidged: ER: ::smirks:: Yeah, thrills a plenty in missing large portions of your life at a time.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns, looking away::
Squidged: ER: ::suddenly apologetic:: Oh, no Libby - I didn't mean...
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::scowls at Erin::
Squidged: ER: ::lowers her head::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: None of you have to stay here if you don't want to...perhaps someday I'll be able to control my powers...
CleoDominic: :: a car pulls up with a woman in a nurse uniform. Her hair is blonde and curly, and has the same colour blue eyes as Alex's eyes ::
YarnKittymon: : ::the door's closed so probably no one sees this::
Squidged: ER: ::sighs deeply::
:: Theres a knock on the door ::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks up towards the door, rather like a cat when it's looking at something it might either flee from or pounce::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::opens the door:: Hello...
CleoDominic: :: A nurse looks at her in a concern look :: :Hello, are you Libby?:
YarnKittymon: LB: Yes.
CleoDominic: :: Oh good, I got the right adress, well Alex Indigo, hes a friend of yours right? ::
Squidged: ER: ::whispers to Becky:: Ermm, don't you think we should put that cat of yours somewhere out of sight?
YarnKittymon: LB: One might say that...
Quantum Catz: BM: Why?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::slouches down, half curled-up::
CleoDominic: :: Well...oh..I say is that a tiger! ::
Squidged: ER: THATS why...
:: What kind of friends are you! ::
Quantum Catz: BM: He's not a real tiger!
CleoDominic: :: Honey, I'm not dumb, and thats a tiger, oh your a circus...sorry.: ::pauses:: Well I'm Leslie Hooper, from the hospital, and I here to infrom you that Alex got hit by a car, and is now in the hospital.::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks up, meowing::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks somewhat concerned:: Oh my...is he all right?
CleoDominic: :: Well yes, Just got a broke arm and some broken ribs, but hes ask to see yall.::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: Well, I never say 'no' to a nurse...
CleoDominic: :: Oh good, he really wanted to see you, he felt bad....:: ::shurgs her shoulders:: Anyway, I have a car, so you dont have to walk who ever wants to go see him::
YarnKittymon: LB: All right. ::glances back at the others::
Squidged: ER: ::shrugs::
Quantum Catz:
BM: I guess we could go - but what about Daniel?
CleoDominic: :: Goes out and starts the car. ::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrewls::
YarnKittymon: LB: Do you think we could leave him here...?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Daniel:: Do you mind?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::tail twitches:: No...::looks at the dog hesitantly::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the dog too:: What is it?
CleoDominic: :: Hocks horn :: :Sorry but the sooner I get back the sooner, I'm back on the clock!:
YarnKittymon: DN: ::quietly:: I won't be lonely if Rarif's around, but he's not mine anymore.
Quantum Catz: BM: Hey, i never said i'd take him ::grins:: I don't think Libby's mum would like him anyway
YarnKittymon: DN: ::eyes widen::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles slightly:: You two work it out. But we'd better head out before the nurse rams the side of the building or something.
Squidged: ER: ::heads out towards the car::
:: Looks at her with her blue eyes. :Its about time, I don't get paid to drive yall around town ya'know: ::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::rubs Rarifs head and then heads for the door:: Cya later, Dan
Squidged: ER: ::shrugs resignedly and climbs into th car::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::purrs happily at them::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::locks the door, then gets into the car as well::
CleoDominic: LS: :So how did you come bout to know Alex?:
CleoDominic: ::starts to drive::
YarnKittymon: LB: He answered a call for members of a freak show.
CleoDominic: LS: :Oh really? And what is this freak show, do you tie Alex to the ceiling and have him jump and fly across or something? ::
LB: ::pauses:: Excuse me? ::pauses again, then laughs:: Oh, no. There's not enough room for him to fly in there...
CleoDominic: LS: :Oh, well he can fly on his own you know...but if theres no room...::
YarnKittymon: LB: He's told you?
Quantum Catz: BM: Cool, i never got to see his wings when he showed off outside the arcade
CleoDominic: LS: :I know Alex likes hes my own son, I'm his Aunt.:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::rather surprised:: Oh....my aunts don't know me so well...
CleoDominic: LS: Well if he wasn't with his mom, he was with me, his father, hated him:
Quantum Catz: BM: He never said he had an aunt when he was talking about his family
YarnKittymon: LB: ::pauses:: I didn't know he had family problems...well, besides...::shakes her head slightly::
CleoDominic: LS: :I'm his only kin left..It was God's will that we found each other....: ::pulls up to the hospital::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::gets out of the car::
CleoDominic: LS: :Hes at room 43, I'll meet you there in a minute. ::Walks into behind the nurse's desk::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::jumps out and looks up at the hospital::
Squidged: ER: ::climbs out from car and looks around:: Wow, how could you ever find anyone in a place this big
Quantum Catz:
BM: I've never been to a hospital before...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::heads towards that room, hesitantly, frowning:: They have numbers on the doors; that's better than most hospitals. I hate the way they smell...hospitals, I mean.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows Libby, the smell reminds her of the labs but she remains silent::
Squidged: ER: ::looks through one of the windows in the doors as they pass:: I was in hospital for a while once, hated it.
YarnKittymon: LB: I haven't. But so many people die here...Oh, there's his room. ::goes in::
CleoDominic: AX: :he lifts his head up slowing:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::in a soft voice:: Hello. How are you feeling?
CleoDominic: AX: :I feel really bad, Libby...hey, sorry, for all the mean things I said to you...:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks rather surprised:: Don't worry about that now. Just work on getting better.
Squidged: ER: ::walks in and stands awkwardly by the door::
AX: :you know, you don't even look 38, you look more like 25...:
Squidged: ER: ::speaks quietly to Becky:: I hate visiting people in hospital - I just don't know what to say
AX: :Leans forward, yelps a little, then looks at Becky: :Hey, Becky, how are you: :in a soft voice:
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: i'm okay - you look terrible though
YarnKittymon: LB: ::a little reproachfully:: Becky...
CleoDominic: AX: :I know they cut my hair...:
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: your hair? So?
CleoDominic: AX: :I loved my hair, it was for my mother...: ::pause:: :Hey I got good news thinking of my mother!:
CleoDominic: LS: ::comes into the room::
YarnKittymon: LB: What's your news?
CleoDominic: AX: :I can help the Freak Show, with costumes, and whatever you need, my mother left her will to me!:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::a bit surprised:: Oh...your mother was well-off?
CleoDominic: LS: :And Land over in England, a whole estate infact.:
Squidged: ER: Really? Where abouts?
AX: :She married my father, who was really rich, I think he was a earl or somthing.:
CleoDominic: LS: :Thus, Her husband left everthing to her, and before she died, left everthing to her children, and Alex is her only child left alive.:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::doesn't say what she's thinking:: Well, I already have more money than I know what to do with...
CleoDominic: AX: :Oh....I just though it would help the others too!: ::pauses:: Except Ethan...:
YarnKittymon: LB: I'm sure he'd be here if he could, but I...you know...
CleoDominic: AX: : I don't want to see Ethan, I...I...I hate him!:
CleoDominic: LS: :Alex! Hate is such a strong, word, don't let me hear you saying that again!: ::pulls his ear::
YarnKittymon: LB: We'll need everyone for the show, Alex.
CleoDominic: AX: ::looks down:: :I know, I just can't stand him...I don't hate anyone, but he just makes me so mad..:
Quantum Catz: BM: Ethan isn't that bad - he's nice
YarnKittymon: LB: Perhaps if you try to get along with him he won't make you so angry.
CleoDominic: LS: :Oh, I gotta meet this Ethan, sounds like a nice fellow.:
CleoDominic: AX: :Yeah I guess so...Hey where's Jasmine?:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: Somewhere on the ocean by now.
Quantum Catz: BM: Running away to Africa
CleoDominic: AX: :What do you mean?:
YarnKittymon: LB: She left the country.
CleoDominic: LS: :Alex is time for you to go, I get the car, and I'll take you home, you all better leave now.:
CleoDominic: AX: :What! Why!? she was so nice!: ::Sits up and puts his feet on the floor::
YarnKittymon: LB: Lay down, Alex. We'll explain later.
CleoDominic: LS: :No he better get up, and work out his mustcles, or he'll get more sore.:
CleoDominic: AX: :shes really gone....then...:
Squidged: ER: 'fraid so
LS: :Well I guess yall better leave now, thanks for coming by, I'll give you my adress so you can visit him there.:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs:: All right... ::turns to the nurse:: Do you have a telephone? You could call me and tell me when Alex is well enough to participate again...
CleoDominic: LS: :Yes, heres my card: ::hands her her card.::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods, saying goodbye to Alex on her way out::



YarnKittymon: : ::as they leave the hospital, Ethan appears beside them::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks around confused:: What's going on?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::in a subdued voice:: Welcome back. Alex is in the hospital, but he'll be fine.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::wispers to Libby:: What happened to him?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: Hit by a car, but he's fine. His relative's a nurse. Cut his hair.
Squidged: ER: Yeah, he ALMOST looks normal now
EM: I bet he's not happy about that.
YarnKittymon: LB: I suppose not. He can always grow it back, though.
SquirtLaWort: EM: How long is going to in here? Just how badly is he hurt?
YarnKittymon: LB: Broken arm and some cracked ribs, I think. She didn't say how long he'd be in there, did she?
Quantum Catz: BM: I thought she was taking him home now
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, he probably won't be in the show for a while...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::sighs:: Great first Jasmine leaves then Alex gets hit by a car at this rate you won't have much of a show.
YarnKittymon: LB: :: smiles half-heartedly:: We *do* have a giant cat...
Quantum Catz: BM: He never said he'd take part
YarnKittymon: LB: And he never said he wouldn't.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles back at Libby:: I guess you can't go wrong with a giant cat.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glares at them both::
Squidged: ER: ::mutters:: A giant creepy talking cat...
Quantum Catz:
BM: He isn't creepy
YarnKittymon: LB: It's up to Daniel, Becky. ::glances at Erin, shrugging helplessly:: You and Becky certainly have switched roles...::pauses:: We'll have to take the subway back to Coney Island; the nurse wasn't polite enough to offer a ride back after driving us.
Squidged: ER: ::folds her arms, to Becky:: He's a talking cat - that in itself is creepy
EM: ::looks at Erin:: So is a girl with strange powers.
Squidged: ER: But at least I'm human!
EM: Some people might think that those powes make you in-human
YarnKittymon: LB: ::coldly:: If I thought *that*, I wouldn't put on a show.
Quantum Catz: BM: :scowls:: That's what i've been telling you all since i came here, other people are nasty
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smirks:: true. But only some people are like that.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sighs:: I'll take personal responsibility for any damage Daniel causes.
Quantum Catz: BM: Who says he'll cause any damage?
Squidged: ER: Well, you never know.
EM: I wouldn't worry about it.
YarnKittymon: LB: Fine. "For any damange Daniel MAY cause."
YarnKittymon: Or may not cause.
YarnKittymon: : ::they get to the subway; Libby buys tickets, silently::
Squidged: ER: Libby, don't buy for me, I got a few things I gotta do here anyway. I'll see you next week.
Squidged: ER: ::dashes away down the street::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sighs:: This show keeps getting smaller and smaller...
SquirtLaWort: EM: Well, I'm not going anywhere.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: Well, I suppose that's a consolation...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at Becky:: You should be in the show, it's would make things a lot better.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::folds her arms and looks away:: I can't
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: I know. ::more brightly:: Let's see if Daniel will, though.
SquirtLaWort: EM: I hope..
YarnKittymon: : ::they get back to the Freak Show without incident; it doesn't even take that much longer than the car trip had::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::opens the door; Daniel is sleeping curled up on the stage, but wakes when they come back::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::grins:: Hey, Dan
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles at the big cat:: Hello Daniel
YarnKittymon: DN: ::smiles up at them:: Hi!
YarnKittymon: DN: This room's so big...
SquirtLaWort: EM: compared to that tiny cage of yours I'm sure it looks huge.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::stretches:: Yeah.
YarnKittymon: : ::the dog goes up to Becky and Ethan, tail wagging::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::kneels down to pat the dog's head:: Hey, boy
YarnKittymon: : ::the dog sits, closing his eyes and clearly enjoying himself::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sits on the stage, frowning::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::walks over to Libby and sits on the stage next to her::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::in a soft voice:: Trying to think of a good way to ask him?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods soberly:: Looks like he's *been* in a show all his life...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::frowns:: You're right. He would most likly hate to be put in the lime light again..
YarnKittymon: DN: What's a lime light?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up at Libby and Ethan, frowning::
SquirtLaWort: EM: umm.. It means to be the center of a..show. ::looks down knowing he shouldn't have said anything::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::eyes widen:: Really? Like a...::pauses, trying to come up with the word:: Movie star?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks up at Daniel surprized:: Uhh.. yeah.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::tilts his head:: I've never been in a light though.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs:: It's more like a light shining on you.
YarnKittymon: DN: Like the sun?
SquirtLaWort: EM: More like a stage light.
YarnKittymon: DN: What's a stage?
SquirtLaWort: EM: I'm sitting on it.
YarnKittymon: DN: Ooooh. And then people sit over in those seats, huh?
SquirtLaWort: EM: That's right now your getting it.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::ears go back:: Do the people throw things?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::'That a good question' he thought:: I don't think they would.
YarnKittymon: DN: That's good. ::lays back down::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mutters:: Yeah, great
SquirtLaWort: EM: Dose that mean you'll be in the show?
YarnKittymon: DN: What show?
SquirtLaWort: EM uhh.. What we were just talking about "the lime light".
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks at Becky, hopelessly puzzled::
Quantum Catz: BM: They want you to perform in Libby's Freak Show cos you're a talking cat - you don't have to though, they can't make you
YarnKittymon: DN: ::still looks puzzled:: But I'm not a freak. I'm a cat.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::sighs and looks to Libby:: What am I suppose to say now?
YarnKittymon: LB: Daniel, I envisioned a show where people who weren't normal would come together and show everyone what we can do. I suppose you're not a person, but you speak like one...
YarnKittymon: DN: ::tail twitches, frowning::
Quantum Catz: BM: You really don't have to do it though - i'm not in the show
YarnKittymon: DN: Why not?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: I don't like people to know about my powers. I....haven't exactly had the best of experiences with the people who've known about them before
YarnKittymon: DN: Well, I don't have any powers.
Quantum Catz: BM: But you're...different...from other cats, just like i'm different from other humans
YarnKittymon: DN: ::blinks:: I guess so. ::looks back at Libby:: You bought me. I'll be in your show. But I hope you're nice.
SquirtLaWort: EM: Don't worry she's very nice.
YarnKittymon: LB: I'll feed you well and won't lock you up, Daniel. I promise.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs and mutters under her breath:: I don't know why i bother. No one ever listens...
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks up at Becky curiously::
Quantum Catz: BM: Just be careful, okay? ::sighs again and turns away, focussing all of her attention on cuddling the dog::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::frowns, then looks up at Ethan:: Will I be famous?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Maybe.. I don't know.
SquirtLaWort: EM: It all depends on how well the show will be.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::pauses:: What will he *do* in the show?
SquirtLaWort: EM: That's a good question.
YarnKittymon: DN: You could teach me how to hunt rabbits!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at Daniel confused:: I don't even hunt rabbits.
YarnKittymon: DN: Oh. I just thought it'd be neat.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: He's a talking cat. We have someone talk to him! If they aren't afraid, that is.
SquirtLaWort: EM: Yeah that could work, as long as they don't ask him any hard questions.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs, smiling:: Oh well. We'll figure it out next week. ::grins::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks a little worried::
YarnKittymon: LB: We aren't getting anything done just practicing, so I say next week, we give a free show.
SquirtLaWort: EM: Good idea.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs slightly:: Hopefully we'll have enough performers to do it...
SquirtLaWort: EM: no kidding
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks a bit nervous, but tries to look brave:: Well, I'll be here.
Quantum Catz: BM: You'll need to call and tell Erin - she won't be happy that Dan's involved now
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns:: Well, she'll be perfectly safe. He's no more dangerous than I am...
Quantum Catz: BM: Well *I* know that
SquirtLaWort: EM: She'll just have to get over her fear.
YarnKittymon: LB: Perhaps she'll grow to like him...
