~Sunday, April 29, 1928~

YarnKittymon: : ::they have a fair turnout for the show, even though the weather's a bit cold and it's their first Sunday show; Libby compliments everyone on their performances::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles at John:: Picking up old discarded furniture to use for your act was a brilliant idea!
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::nods:: It's good that you didn't have to use anything valuable.
FraserM1986: Jn: yes it is good
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks at Maeve:: Maeve, please don't threaten the audience next time. They liked your show fine.
MaeveOwens: MV: ::smirks::: Well, you must admit, that one guy will never insult another woman for a long time.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is sitting stroking Daniel, not looking too happy at Maeve::
YarnKittymon: LB: Perhaps not, but it's not good show to singe a patron's whiskers.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::has his head in Becky's lap, purring, though his tail's twitching a bit::
MaeveOwens: MV: ::shrugs her shoulders::: Okay, fine. I wont singe anymore whiskers. ::a small smile forms on her face::: How about clothes? are they at least fair game?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs:: If you don't set them on fire--and if the money to reimburse the patrons comes from *your* pay.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::thinks to himself 'she's worse than Alex'::
FraserM1986: Jn: Its most unbecoming for a young lady to be acting in such a way
MaeveOwens: MV: :::laughs::: Sounds good to me. They wouldn't get anything singed if they wouldn't be so rude.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs softly, shaking his head a little::
MaeveOwens: MV: :::shrugs::: Who says I am your typical lady?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles slightly:: Just ignore her Dan
YarnKittymon: LB: No singing Daniel's fur, either. That's as bad as hair or whiskers.
MaeveOwens: MV: ::looks at the fluffy kitty:: I wouldn't hurt an animal. I like animals. Even if they do hate me
YarnKittymon: DN: ::ears go back, but doesn't say anything::
MaeveOwens: MV: What? I didn't burn down anything and you still hate me? Ungreateful cat.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::hisses at her for a moment::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glares at Maeve:: Leave him be
MaeveOwens: MV: ::steps farther away from hissing cat::: Now I know why I have a bird instead of a cat
Quantum Catz: : ::suddenly a tall man in his early twenties, with bright red eyes and brown hair a similar shade to Becky's appears in the middle of the room::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up, startled; she's used to people randomly appearing in front of her, but not people she's never met before:: Er...
SquirtLaWort: EM: Who are you?
Quantum Catz: : ::moves towards Becky, ignoring the others:: RebeccaII've been looking all over for you
YarnKittymon: DN: ::lifts his head out of Becky's lap, mrring questioningly::
FraserM1986: Jn: ::eyes widen:: who, what are you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::stares at the man in shock but doesn't say a word::
MaeveOwens: MV: ::stares at the stranger, relieved that the attention is foccused elsewhere::
Quantum Catz: : Please, Rebecca. Just listen. You're my sister, I want to help you. Come back to our time. You don't have to run anymore.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks at Becky, dismayed::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::eyes widen; her fists clench, unconsciously::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at the man then Becky:: sister..?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::suddenly jumps to her feet, looking angry:: Don't be stupid! I'm not your sister! You're not my brother - you weren't even really *her* brother! I don't need you!
MaeveOwens: MV: ::stands back looking confused:::
Quantum Catz: : ::moves towards her; desperately:: Don't do this, Rebecca. You need to stop running from the past!
YarnKittymon: : ::John suddenly disappears; Libby doesn't even notice::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after a pause:: Becky? What's he talking about?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shouts tearfully, ignoring Libby:: I'm not Rebecca! Leave me alone! That place was hell and I'll never go back! ::teleports away::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs, ears back and tails down; looks around for Becky::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::stares for a moment at where Becky used to be, then turns to the stranger, not too kindly:: Who *are* you?
MaeveOwens: MV: Is it okay to roast and toast this guy? :::evil glint in her eyes as she throws a fireball up and down:::
Quantum Catz: : ::sighs wearily and seems to realise for the first time that there are other people in the room:: My name's Dominick although she probably never told you about me
YarnKittymon: LB: Steady, Maeve. ::eyes narrowed at Dominick:: No, she didn't.
MaeveOwens: MV: :::sighs in disappointment and puts the fireball out:::
Quantum Catz: DK: She...I...she's not... ::trails off not really sure what to say::
YarnKittymon: LB: She's our friend. I think you'd best explain why you made her cry and run away.
MaeveOwens: MV: ::smiles:: If he doesnt then can I roast and toast him?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::clenchs his fist:: You better have a good explianation.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::angrily:: She's my sister! ::hesitates:: Well, sort of...a part of my sister
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks rather puzzled:: How...?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Your not making any sence
Quantum Catz: DK: It would be impossible to explain unless you knew something about the variant labs which you obviously don't, do you?
MaeveOwens: MV: :::looks confused::: variant labs?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowns; softly:: Becky told me a little something...
SquirtLaWort: EM: can you tell us about them?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks at Libby surprised:: she told you about them? i've found other people she's known through the years and she's never...
MaeveOwens: MV: ::getting impatient::: Quit stalling and get to the point.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: She said the only reason she existed was so doctors could experiment upon her. ::pauses; eyes widen:: I'm not sure how much of this she'd want everyone to know...
Quantum Catz: DK: It wasn't *her* they expermented on...it was my sister. The girl you know was created in an experiment to get rid of Rebecca's powers
SquirtLaWort: EM: You mean Becky's not... She was created? How is that possible?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: She said...people like us...::shudders:: I didn't really believe her...
Quantum Catz: DK: ::rubs his eyes wearily:: I'm sorry...i just... Becky's like the personification of my sister's powers...she has her memories...she's *part* of her. I just want...i want to help her. Like i couldn't help Rebecca...
YarnKittymon: DN: ::angrily:: She was fine before *you* came!
SquirtLaWort: EM: It dosen't look like she wants your help.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::turns to stare at the large cat and then frowns:: This isn't where she belongs. She ran away back in time to escape the truth. You can't run away from things forever
MaeveOwens: MV: ::stares at the stranger:: If what he says is true, then how can you trust him? What if he was sent here to get her back? to take her back to the labs?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::snaps:: Cos i'm a variant too! Why would i want to take her to the labs?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at Dominick suspiciously:: What good do you expect her to do, going back with you?
MaeveOwens: MV: ::glares at him::: Why should we trust you? Maybe you arent who you say you are?
SquirtLaWort: EM: If she dosen't want to go back with her then you shouldn't force her to come with you.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::clenches his fists:: Do you really believe she's going to come back *here*? She runs. It's what she does. For the past thirty years of her life she's been running. She never stays with people for long
YarnKittymon: LB: Thirty *years*?
SquirtLaWort: EM: impossible..
Quantum Catz: DK: I *told* you! She isn't a normal human! Why would she age? And that's just the length of time i know about...she could've gone to other places i never found
YarnKittymon: LB: ::slumps down into a chair:: She *has* to come back here...we care about her...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::under his breath:: dame it.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::mutters:: There've been other people who cared about her. She left them
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at the floor; her eyes are wet:: I don't care what she's running from. You shouldn't've come.
SquirtLaWort: EM: Your the one who made her run away!
YarnKittymon: DN: ::suddenly pounces at Dominick::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::cries out and tries to fight off the big cat; unfortunately he can't do normal teleportation like Becky::
YarnKittymon: LB: Daniel! ::gets up and grabs his collar, trying to pull him off::
MaeveOwens: MV: :::smirks::: Glad to know that cat hates someone more than me.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::knocks Dominick to the ground, not extending his claws:: Bring her back!
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::lifts Daniel off of Dominick::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::whines a little, struggling futilely::
SquirtLaWort: EM: I your upset Daniel but you can't attack him.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::stops struggling; softly:: I want Becky back.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::glares at the cat:: You think i don't?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::hisses at him:: You made her go away!
SquirtLaWort: EM: Stop it. He can't make her come back.
Quantum Catz: DK: She would've left anyway! She's not going to change the way she behaves for you lot
YarnKittymon: DN: ::meows piteously::
SquirtLaWort: EM: Just shut up! Why don't you leave already!
YarnKittymon: LB: You don't know any way to bring her back?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::bitterly:: If i knew how to do that i wouldn't have had to spend the past five years looking for her
SquirtLaWort: EM: one things for sure she won't come back if he's here.
MaeveOwens: MV: ::looks over at Libby, excitement in her eyes:: Does this mean I can burn him to a crisp now?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::absently:: But you might burn the building as well...::sighs, and leans against the wall, eyes closed::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::finally lets go of Daniel::
MaeveOwens: MV: :::laughs::: Trust me, the only thing i would hit would be him. Nothing else would catch on fire. Someday I will have to show you how this fireball thing works.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly:: I promised Fiona I'd...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::doesn't reply; she seems to be concentrating::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::just lays on the ground, head on his paws, looking quite depressed::
Quantum Catz: DK: I'm sorry...I just wanted her to listen...
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks up at Dominick:: I hate you.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at the grounds ignoring Dominick:: Poor kid, I never knew. She sure had me fooled And all this time she was older than me.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::finally opens her eyes, sighing:: I'm so good at making people disappear...I thought maybe just this once I could make one come back... ::wipes her eyes, her make-up smearing:: Tell us about Becky. She never was very open with us...
Quantum Catz: DK: ::softly:: I can only tell you what other people told me...unless you want to know what my sister lived through in the labs
YarnKittymon: LB: ::pauses, then, softly:: You might as well; I doubt I could feel any more depressed today.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: Rebecca was too powerful for them. They used these things called supressors to weaken her. They did it to me too but never as much as her. You wouldn't believe the pain ::he tries to blink back angry tears:: And every day they'd do these experiments and my friend Fiona, she's telepathic and she said they always did the worst stuff to Rebecca...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after a long time:: Why doesn't anyone do anything to stop them?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::closes his eyes and sighs:: how horrible.
MaeveOwens: MV: :::plops down in a chair, her voice low::: Wow. Thats sound awful. ::stares off into the distance:::
Quantum Catz: DK: Because we're rats...we were born in the labs. Even some normal variants don't think we should exist
YarnKittymon: LB: What difference does it make where you were born? If American parents have a kid in China, that doesn't make him Chinese!
SquirtLaWort: EM: what variant is normal anyway?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: You don't understand...it's a science that you don't know about. We don't have parents. We don't...we're created by scientists
YarnKittymon: LB: ::eyes widen:: I've never heard of such a thing!
Quantum Catz: DK: Well it's a long time down the line...
YarnKittymon: LB: I *hope* so...
SquirtLaWort: EM: It's not right. People creating people in labs.. Sounds like playing God.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::absently:: They all say that...but they never do anything about it
MaeveOwens: MV: :::looks at Dominick::: Why cant you stop it?
SquirtLaWort: EM: But if your variants you should have the power to do *something*
Quantum Catz: DK: Most variants are too afraid to even tell the people they trust what they are
YarnKittymon: LB: Besides, imagine it--even if there were a *hundred* of us at the Freak Show, how could we go against a big business? Or the government?
MaeveOwens: MV: How would we even get there?
SquirtLaWort: EM: But your no longer in a lab. How did you get out?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: I just meant as an example. Our powers or talents wouldn't be a match for a thousand men with guns.
MaeveOwens: MV: :::looks thoughtful::: You can make people disappear right?
Quantum Catz: DK: :answers Ethan:: There...was an explosion when Becky was created. The lab was destroyed and a handful of us managed to get away before anyone came
YarnKittymon: LB: Not predictably...
MaeveOwens: MV: ::sighs:: oh
SquirtLaWort: EM: I see..
YarnKittymon: LB: At any rate, there's nothing we can do about any of that....::sighs again:: How can we bring her back?
Quantum Catz: DK: I *told* you. If she's gone, she's gone. She can travel through time *and* space - she could be anywhere
SquirtLaWort: EM: You seem to be able to catch up with her though.
SquirtLaWort: EM: How did you know she was here?
Quantum Catz: DK: I've been trying to track her down for five years... ::sighs:: She tends to go to places she can act like a child...have fun...that's why i went to Coney Island...and then i found a boy a few years from now who she saved in a fire and he said she was interested in this show so i came to this building and came to this time and *got lucky*
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, I don't care if I have to try for ten years; I'll figure out a way to bring her back.
Squidged: ER: ::appears at the door and shouts inside:: Hello?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs at Erin::
SquirtLaWort: EM: Erin..
Squidged: ER: Hey Danny. Hey Ethan, sorry I'm late. What's been happening?
EM: Um.. ::looks down:: Becky's run off.
Squidged: ER: ::looks alarmed:: Why?
EM: ::points to Dominck:: Ask him.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: It's not like i intended this
Squidged: ER: ::notices Dominick:: Oh, so who are you?
Quantum Catz:
DK: ::bitterly:: Does it really matter?
Squidged: ER: ::looks to Ethan::
EM: That's Becky's brother, Dominick.
Squidged: ER: ::looks surprised but says nothing::
EM: Becky ran away when she saw him..
Squidged: ER: But...why?
Quantum Catz:
DK: she would have run away eventually anyway!
YarnKittymon: LB: He told her to stop running from her past...and she had a terrible past...
SquirtLaWort: EM: And now Dominick says she won't be coming back.
Squidged: ER: ::sits down:: Ever?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: We'll bring her back somehow. I don't know how, but we *will.*
SquirtLaWort: EM: Aparentally she dose this all the time.
MaeveOwens: MV: :::taps foot impatiently::: Yeah but we have to make him go away first.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::hisses ad Dominick again::
MaeveOwens: MV: ::walks over and grabs Dominick by the shirt::: Okay, this has gone on long enough! Either teleport your sorry self to wherever she is and bring her back or get lost so we can come up with a plan.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::doesn't object::
Quantum Catz: DK: Maybe i should give up, maybe it's easier just to let her run where ever the hell she likes. She obviously doesn't want my help
MaeveOwens: MV: Gee, where was your first clue???
Quantum Catz: DK: ::glares at Maeve:: I don't see her sticking around for the sake of you guys
MaeveOwens: MV: ::shakes him a bit::: So, we are better company than you! And you are starting to get on my nerves.
SquirtLaWort: EM: If that's the case then it will be pointless for us to look for her. If wants to run away maybe we shouldn't stop her.
Quantum Catz: DK: You couldn't stop her anyway...you couldn't even find her
YarnKittymon: LB: ::after a moment, firmly:: She'll come back.
SquirtLaWort: EM: I hope so.
Squidged: ER: ::frowns at Dominick:: Of course she wil.
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve suddenly vanishes, freeing Dominick::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::frowning:: I need to work on my timing...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at Dominick:: Good timing for him
Quantum Catz: DK: ::glares at Ethan but doesn't say anything::
Griffchook: ER: So when did this guy show up?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shrugs:: A few minutes ago...
Griffchook: ER: ::stares at Dominick:: And what does he want?
YarnKittymon: LB: *Becky.* And a lot of good he did...
Griffchook: ER: ...but Becky doesn't want to see him, so she ran off.
EM: right.
Griffchook: ER: Right...I see. I think.
Quantum Catz:
DK: ::mutters:: Becky just doesn't want to face the truth
YarnKittymon: LB: Disappeared.....so we've no idea where she got off to...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::sighs:: That's probably true but I don't blame her.
YarnKittymon: LB: You don't just up and leave the people you care about.
Quantum Catz: DK: Becky's had thirty years of experience at it
YarnKittymon: LB: ::firmly:: If she can travel through time freely, she could spend twenty years somewhere and come back tonight, and to us it'd be as though she was only gone a day!
YarnKittymon: DN: ::softly, not sounding convinced:: She wouldn't leave me....she said so...
Griffchook: ER: ::looks surprised at Libby's statement about Becky travelling through time::
Quantum Catz:
DK: ::shakes his head but doesn't say anything: wishes he'd taken his friend Fiona with him - she wouldn't have made such a mess of things::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::finally: Well, there's nothing to be done but to wait, I suppose....I'm going to change out of my costume.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::to Dominick:: what are you going to do now?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::murmurs:: I guess i'm going to have to go home. It took me five years to find her here...and i guess it was all for nothing
YarnKittymon: LB: ::heading towards the bathroom:: Go ahead if you'd like, but she'll be back here soon. ::goes to change::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::nods:: Yeah I have a feeling she'll come back eventually.
Quantum Catz: DK: How can you be so sure?
SquirtLaWort: EM: She said she liked this place the best. ::shrugs:: She might miss it.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::tail twitches:: She said she'd keep me safe...
Quantum Catz: DK: ::doesn't look like he believes it::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::comes out wearing knickers and a blouse; glances at Erin and Ethan:: If you want to go home, I can probably go to Raymond's and telephone you if--*when* she comes back.
SquirtLaWort: EM: Alright, call me tonight even if you don't find her.
YarnKittymon: LB: I will, if Raymond's home. ::pauses:: No; there's a pay phone down the street. I'll phone you.
Griffchook: ER: ::stands up slowly:: She'll come back. ::walks towards the door:: Call me anyway though, please.
YarnKittymon: LB: I will...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::suddenly appears near the door, although it's impossible to tell its her - her image is continuously changing - from men, to women, to children, sometimes looking like people around Coney, or even like her friends::
