SP00KY One: ::::a gorgeous young woman in a pair capris and a tight fitting red sweater approaches the guard on duty. She smiles sweetly at him while batting her deep green eyes::::
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard seems to forget himself, and tips his hat to the woman, nodding::
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard further down the line comes running over:: Fred, what are you doing?! Miss, this area is quarantined.
SP00KY One: LU: :::she turns her gaze over to the other guard, her perfect red lips turning down into a pout::: Awe, but you see I must get into town. Its a very important matter. You wouldn't want to delay me now would you?
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard cringes:: Are you mad, woman? Who in her right mind would *want* to go in? The influenza's inside!
SP00KY One: LU: :::smiles::: Well, lucky for me I'm highly resistant to those pesky things. Now why wont you be a good boy and just let me on through? :::absent mindly twirls one piece of her silver locks around one small finger:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the other guard smiles at the stranger:: Are you a nurse?
SP00KY One: LU: :::the smile disappears::: Heavens no! :::coughs::: Although I do know someone in there that is quite sick and needs my help desperately. ::::casts a hopeful glance their way:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the strict guard asks:: Who?
SP00KY One: LU: My cousin.
YarnKittymon: : What's his name?
SP00KY One: LU: :::she tears up a little, glancing down at her feet::: He's the only family I have left. And I haven't seen him in months! It would be just horrible if :::she pauses for a moment, looking like she might burst into tears::: Oh I
SP00KY One: cant even say it!
YarnKittymon: : What's your last name, then?
SP00KY One: LU: :::her voice is quiet and pittiful sounding:: Dessey
YarnKittymon: : ::only the slightest bit softer:: There's no Desseys in town. You're lucky; your cousin's safe.
SP00KY One: LU: :::blinks several times::: Well, just because he's my cousin doesnt mean we share the last name silly! I know he's in town. He wrote me. Now if you'll excuse me I do need to be on my way.
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard steps in front of Lu:: Do you have the letter, then?
SP00KY One: LU: Of course not! Its not like I carry it with me! And I didnt mean it was just delivered either. :::rolls her eyes before fixing him with a seductive look::: Are you really going to keep me from seeing him?
YarnKittymon: : ::the guard frowns:: It's for your own good, miss. Once you set foot inside the town you can't leave, not until the sickness has gone or everyone's dead.
SP00KY One: LU: :::pouts::: But I already told you. I cant get sick. You dont trust a sweet innocent little thing like me? :::glances over to the other guard::: You believe me dont you?
YarnKittymon: : ::the other guard smiles slightly:: Of course. Just let her in, Pete.
YarnKittymon: : ::Pete still doesn't look a bit convinced:: We still won't let you out; you could spread the sickness to others. Do you really want the whole island to die?
SP00KY One: LU: :::turns her gaze up to Pete::: Well now, who says I want back out? If everything works out I may not leave. Its so sad that we live so far apart. :::her sad frown reappears and she sniffs:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Pete frowns, still not moved:: If you try to get back out we'll shoot you sooner than let you leave, you got that?
SP00KY One: LU: :::nods::: I understand completely. After all, you boys have a job to do. To protect the citizens. I really do admire you for what you do. It must be so hard. :::looks back over at the other one, smiling::::
YarnKittymon: : ::Fred grins like a schoolboy::
YarnKittymon: : ::Pete steps aside to let Lu through:: I'm not kidding. I'd kill you five times over if it'd keep the island from getting sick.
SP00KY One: LU: :::she nods again, not bothering to reply::: Thank you boys ever so much. :::she walks through, her puppy dog expression vanishing the moment she is out of sight, replaced by a self assured smirk:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Pete glares at the other guard:: Now get back to your post. You're useless, you know that?
YarnKittymon: : ::Fred goes back to his post, cheerfully::
SP00KY One: LU: :::She strides up to Becky's door, tugging on her sweater before raising her hand to knock. She had already tried his place and after standing outside for twenty minutes a neighboor finally had the courtesy to tell her to check here.:::
YarnKittymon: : ::once Lu knocks, there's some rather loud meowing on the other side of the door, and some scratching; a child-like voice says, in-between the meows:: It won't open.
SP00KY One: LU: :::frowns::: Um. Okay. Is Toby there?
YarnKittymon: : ::there's another meow, then:: Yeah, but he's sick in bed.
SP00KY One: LU: :::she makes a disgusted face before reminding herself that its Toby. Suddenly the thought of actually getting to play nurse didn't sound so bad:::: Is he too sick to come to the door?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::through the door:: Yeah, but if you can get it open you can come in. I'm lonely.
SP00KY One: LU: ::::tries the doorhandle:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the doorhandle is stuck, and the whole door seems to be melted a bit at the edges::
SP00KY One: LU: :::she bends down to look closer at the door::: Hmm... who was he trying to keep out? ::::pauses::: is there another way in?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::meows sadly::
SP00KY One: LU: :::she glances around with a rather determined look on her face::: No melted door is going to stand in my way. How do you suppose I get in?
YarnKittymon: : ::there's suddenly a bang on the door, from the inside, like someone's trying to bust it open::
SP00KY One: LU: :::startled, she takes a few steps back:::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::meows from inside the door:: That hurt.
SP00KY One: LU: :::shakes her head::: Why dont you step back and let me try it? You poor little thing. How long have you been trapped in there? It wouldnt be right if I just left without making sure everything was okay now would it?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::after a pause:: I'm back.
SP00KY One: LU: :::attempts to break the door down using every amount of strength she has:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the seams Toby made crack, allowing Lu to open the door smoothly, without having even destroyed it::
SP00KY One: LU: :::smiles as she steps through the door::: Lifting feed barrells sure has paid off.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::meows, looking up at Lu in wonder::
SP00KY One: LU: :::her smile widens::: Well look at you! Aren't you just the cutest thing ever! My name is Lu. Who might you be?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::meows, wide-eyed:: Daniel. Toby's in Becky's room.
SP00KY One: LU: Okay. :::she heads towards the room Daniel indicated and peeks her head in:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is lying still on the bed, the covers wrapped closely around him, his hand coming cleanly through one of the blankets to get a better grip::
SP00KY One: LU: :::she walks over to the bedside, leaning in a little she calls out softly::: Toby?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::stirs slightly; murmurs:: Becky?
SP00KY One: LU: :::bites her lip for a moment while she reigns in her jealousy. Her voice remains light and sweet::: No, Becky isn't here. It's Lu. I came see you and it looks like its a good thing I did. You poor thing.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::opens his eyes for a brief moment, not really seeing, then closes them again, silently::
SP00KY One: LU: When was the last time you ate or drank anything?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: You'll get sick too...
YarnKittymon: DN: ::goes over to Toby's bed and puts his paws on the foot of the bed, resting his chin on them::
SP00KY One: LU: Not possible. Now don't you worry about me okay? Lets just concentrate on fixing you up. I'll go fix you something to eat. How does that sound? :::she smiles sweetly down at him:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::opens his eyes, finally looking at Lu; quietly:: I'm scared.
SP00KY One: LU: :::gives him a sympathetic look::: Awe, don't be. I'm here now and I'm not going to let a thing happen to you!
YarnKittymon: TY: You can't stop it...if I die...
SP00KY One: LU: Oh come now! First thing we have to fix is your attitude! Its just a pesky ole flu. You going to let a tiny little germ get the best of you?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::meows:: The doctor died.
SP00KY One: LU: Oh, well. Who knows what kind of physical shape she was in. What about you? Were you sick?
YarnKittymon: DN: Yeah. ::sniffles:: I'm still a little sick.
SP00KY One: LU: :::looks back at Toby::: Ya see there. He's getting better. No reason you shouldn't. Just need a new perspective. Now lets work on getting your strength back first shall we. Anything sound appetizing?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::closes his eyes; softly:: Soup.
SP00KY One: LU: Okay. I'll just go see what we have to work with here. :::she gets up and walks into Becky's kitchen, rummaging through her cabinets:::
SP00KY One: LU: :::she finds a can of chicken noodle and pulls out. A few minutes later she returns to Toby with a bowl of hot soup::: okay, you think you can sit up to eat this?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is asleep again::
SP00KY One: LU: :::carefully sets the soup on the bedside table before calling to him again::: Toby?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::groans softly::
SP00KY One: LU: Come on, you gotta wake up to eat.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: You're not Becky...
SP00KY One: LU: :::a sour expression crosses her face but it fades quickly::: No, it looks like I'm all you've got. I promise I'm a good cook though. Come on, wake up and eat something. It'll make you feel better.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::opens his eyes just a crack, then tries pathetically to sit up, without any success at all::
SP00KY One: LU: :::quiet cheerfully leans over to assist him::: Now really, what would you have done if I hadn't come along?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly, somehow sitting up:: Who are you?
SP00KY One: LU: :::frowns slightly::: You don't remember me? Well, how embarrassing. Then again I suppose you do help a lot of people around here. My names Lu. :::she gives him her best smile while she reaches for the bowl of soup:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks ahead blankly::
SP00KY One: LU: It was an antique vase, my mom went into complete hysterics when the cat knocked it over. There wasnt anything we could do to salvage it so she sent me down here. ::::she holds the soup up::: Now can you do this on your own?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::tries to raise his hand to take the spoon, but doesn't get it much further than his lap::
SP00KY One: LU: I'll take that as a no. :::she puts some noodles onto the spoon and holds it up for him to take a bite::: I was on my way out here to see if you could fix a broken chain on my favorite necklace. But I can worry about that later. Getting you all better is on the top of my list of things to do.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes a sip of the soup; quietly:: You should go. I'll be all right.
SP00KY One: LU: You sir can barely lift your hand. If you think I'm the kind of person to leave a decent man like yourself in this kind of a fix then you're wrong. Nope, I'm afraid you're stuck with me. If you want rid of me then you'll just have to get better quicker. :::she gives him another charming smile:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::groans softly, then just swallows a few more spoonfuls of soup::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::nuzzles Lu softly::
SP00KY One: LU: :::she glances down at Daniel, petting him softly before feeding more soup to Toby::: Groan all you want. Its not going to get me out the door.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes a few more spoonfuls of soup, then:: I'm not hungry.
SP00KY One: LU: :::looks doubtful::: Are you sure? Cause I'm still not going anywhere until I feel that your well enough to be left on your own.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: If Becky comes back...she'll kill me...
SP00KY One: LU: *IF* Becky comes back to find out you let yourself almost die from refusing help then yes, she just might and I wouldn't blame her.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::closes his eyes; quietly:: Are you a nurse?
SP00KY One: LU: I am now. :::she sets the bowl back down on the bedside table before pulling a nearby chair closer to the bed:::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::meows:: Can I go outside?
SP00KY One: LU: :::she looks over at Toby:::
YarnKittymon: TY: You'd better not.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mewls::
SP00KY One: LU: Do you need me to get you anythimg? Water? More blankets?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: A little water.
SP00KY One: LU: Okay, I'll be right back. :::she picks up the bowl of half eaten soup and returns to the kitchen:::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::follows her:: I miss Becky too.
SP00KY One: LU: :::she goes into the same cabinet where she found the bowl and picks up a glass, she turns around to face Daniel::: Where did this Becky person go?
YarnKittymon: DN: 'Dunno. ::sniffs:: She went away. She was mad at Toby.
SP00KY One: LU: :::she puts some ice in it before going over to the sink to fill it with water:::: Oh. Must have been some fight for her to leave him in this condition.
YarnKittymon: DN: He wasn't sick before.
SP00KY One: LU: Oh. But you were?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mewls:: Yeah. But they wouldn't let her come see me. I didn't get to say goodbye...
SP00KY One: LU: :::shakes her head:::Oh, well, have you had anything to eat since she left? :::she heads back into the other room to hand Toby the water:::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::nods:: Yeah.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::very nearly drops the glass, and can't raise it::
SP00KY One: LU: Thats good. At least one of you can eat. ::::she helps him drink it:::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::quietly:: I wasn't as sick as Toby.
SP00KY One: LU: :::nods, looking at Toby::::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::slumps down back in the bed; murmuring:: I can't even move my arms...
SP00KY One: LU: That will change, give it time. You just need your energy back. God knows when it was the last time you ate.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: What day is it?
SP00KY One: LU: Friday.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::closes his eyes, not speaking::
SP00KY One: LU: Well, you get some rest and when you wake up again we'll see if you feel like eating anything else. Okay?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::doesn't reply; is breathing softly::
SP00KY One: LU: And I will take that as an agreement. :::she leans back in the chair, content with watching him sleep:::
