YarnKittymon: LB: ::is in old clothes, busy
painting the stage a bright yellow color::
Griffchook: ER: ::knocks on the door and walks in:: Morning Libby. Stage's looking nice.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up, her face turning red; she hadn't expected anyone to come see her today:: Oh, hello, Erin...forgive my appearance. ::wipes her hands on her apron::
Griffchook: ER: ::smiles:: Not at all, sorry to just appear like that. Do you need a hand?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::grins:: No; I wouldn't ask you to muss your clothes. If you'll just let me rinse this brush, we can have a proper conversation, if you'd like.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::wanders into the room, still looking rather pale, with Daniel following closely beside her::
Griffchook: ER: Sure, didn't mean to keep you back from your painting. Oh, morning Becky.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles slightly:: Hi Erin
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles at Becky and Daniel:: I'll be back in a moment. ::after snapping the lid back on the paint, goes into the bathroom to rinse the paintbrush::
Griffchook: ER: ::sits herself down on an unpainted patch of the stage::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::knocks at the door::
Griffchook: ER: ::shouts:: Come in!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::comes back out of the bathroom, having taken off her apron, but there's still some yellow paint on her pants and the back of her hands:: I guess that's the best way to attract visitors, is to start painting...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::walks in:: Oh hi Erin I didn't know you'd be here.
Griffchook: ER: Could say the same about you ::smiles::
YarnKittymon: LB: And I could say the same for both of you. It's nowhere *near* noon yet, Ethan. Didn't even let me change my clothes...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sits down on the front row of seats and absently rubs Daniel's head::
Griffchook: ER: Actually I'm glad you're here. I've got some news for you all.
SquirtLaWort: EM: What is it?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::purrs ecstatically at Becky, keeping his head and a paw on her lap, possessively::
YarnKittymon: LB: Yes?
Griffchook: ER: ::looks at Libby:: I'm going back to England.
SquirtLaWort: EM: What?! Why?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at her, rather shocked:: Excuse me?
Griffchook: ER: ::sighs:: I finally got a letter from the executor of my parents estate. They are calling my sister and I back home for the reading of the will.
Griffchook: ER: ::looks down at the ground:: It is almost certain that I'll inherit the family home. If so, then I wont be returning to America.
YarnKittymon: LB: Erin! ::shakes her head, looking down, then back up at Erin, rather sadly:: That's pretty good news for you, then...you'll be well off...
Griffchook: ((It's taken that you shuld all know that Erins parents died from the yet-to-be-completed 'Erins Birthday'))
SquirtLaWort: EM: I guess I shouldn't be sad since you'll be pretty well off, but I'll really miss you.
Griffchook: ER: I guess, although money's not as important as the friends I'll leave behind. I'll miss you all dredfully ::smiles sadly:: I'll come and visit though, I promise!
Quantum Catz: BM: Couldn't you just sell the house if you get it?
Griffchook: ER: My family home? It's been with us for generations...I couldn't possibly sell it.
SquirtLaWort: EM: Right. We're not expecting you to do anything like that for us. I just hope your happy in England.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::takes Erin's hands warmly, only belatedly recalling the paint on her own hands:: Please come visit often. It's a quick trip from Europe to New York, you know.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles sadly:: It won't be the same without you around
Griffchook: ER: ::sniffs:: Heh, and I wasn't going to cry. Of course I'll visit often! And I hope I get to say goodbye to Alex and Jasmine before I leave too.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::nods:: they would hate for you to leave without saying goodbye.
Griffchook: ER: ::shakes her head:: I leave tomorrow.
SquirtLaWort: EM: That's soon?
YarnKittymon: LB: Well...we *must* have dinner together before-- ::cuts herself off rather abruptly, shaking her head a bit::
Griffchook: ER: Yes, short notice I know. You can manage the show fine without me now though, can't you Libby?
Griffchook: ER: Yes, of course. Does tonight suit?
YarnKittymon: LB: The show will be fine, though we'll all miss you--and your half-dozen followers surely will too.
Griffchook: ER: Heh, I wasn't aware I had any followers ::smiles::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::swallows, then looks up bravely:: Tonight will be fine. I'll try to get the others together.
YarnKittymon: LB: And I wasn't even counting Raymond!
Griffchook: ER: ::smiles warmly:: Thanks a lot Libby. Thnaks for everything.
YarnKittymon: LB: No, thank you...you continued with the show, even before you figured out how to keep your power from driving you mad...I'll always remember that, Erin.
Griffchook: ER: Now I'm really going to cry! ::hugs Libby::
YarnKittymon: LB: Oh, Erin! ::carefully keeps her hands off Erin:: There'll be time for that tonight! You'll get paint on your clothes!
Griffchook: ER: ::laughs:: Like that matters. ::stands up:: Well, I have to go an pack, when will I see you all?
YarnKittymon: LB: You tell us when and where, and we'll be there.
Griffchook: ER: ::grins:: I know just the place. 7:00pm at the Laguna Cafe. And it really is my treat this time, okay? No trying to pay for me ::winks::
YarnKittymon: LB: Oh, Erin, that's not proper; you're the one going away...
Griffchook: ER: I insist! I'm the one coming into to money, just humour me for my last night.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: Well, all right, if you insist...
Griffchook: ER: Wonderful! I hope you can all make it! ::opens her purse looks at her watch:: Aw, I really must be going... See you tonight.
SquirtLaWort: EM: See you there!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods:: Take care!
Quantum Catz: BM: Bye
Griffchook: ER: ::hugs Ethan on the way out:: Thanks! ::waves again at the door then hurrys off back to her apartement::
