~Tuesday, June 12, 1928~

YarnKittymon: LB: ::is backstage; her performances have been kind of wooden for the last few shows, but no one seems to really mind, and though she misses Ethan's talents, she'd really rather never see him again::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles uncertainly at Libby:: You okay?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::walks into Freakshow::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::just sighs at Becky; sees Ethan when he comes backstage, and her expression changes to rage::
SquirtLaWort: EM: Hi Libby ::smiles at her but sees that she's in a bad mood::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::uncertainly:: Uh, Ethan....
YarnKittymon: LB: ::in a low and dangerous voice:: How *dare* you show your face here?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Well I know I've missed a few days but I'm here now.. you don't have to be so angery.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::weakly:: That's not why she's upset
YarnKittymon: LB: Were you *ever* going to tell me about your *wife*?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::wishes that he can just run away from her..'now it's all over':: I.. I can explain.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sounding hurt:: Oh?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::trys to search for the right words but dosn't think anything will excuse him:: She's not really my wife.. Well she *is* but.. it's hard to explain.. I'm trying to get a divorce, really.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::tears in her eyes:: And you didn't *tell* me?
SquirtLaWort: EM: I was going to tell you.. ::notices becky is still there, to Libby:: can we talk in private?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::glowers; it's time for the show to start, but tosses her head:: Fine. ::heads out towards the back room::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::blinks at Becky:: Does that mean I have to go on by myself?
Quantum Catz: BM: Um...oh great. Where's everyone else when you need them?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::follows Libby to the back room with a feeling of impending doom over him::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::slams the door, then sits on her bed, glaring at Ethan:: What is there to "talk" about?
HJennyG: ER: ::walks in and finds Becky backstage:: Hi Becky, where's everyone else?
Quantum Catz:
BM: Um...Libby and Ethan are in the back room, fighting most likely, and no one else is here
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::ignores her last statement:: I'm sorry I didn't tell you. I haven't even spoken with her in the last two years.
HJennyG: ER: Fighting? Why?
YarnKittymon: LB: Do you think I would've let you so much as *touch* me if I'd have known?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::winces:: What do you want me to do? I'll leave if that's what you want.
YarnKittymon: : ::a few people in the audience, impatient for the show to start, get up and press their ears against the wall, listening to the conversation::
FraserM1986: Jn: ::walks in looking a bit scruffy, unusually so::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks down:: I...I loved you, Ethan...how could you have let me fall in love with you if you were still....if you knew what it would do to me?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::sniffs at John:: You're dirty. How come?
FraserM1986: Jn: ::coughs a few times, straightens up then has another fit fo coughs::
Quantum Catz: BM: Are you okay?
FraserM1986: Jn: ::wipes his mouth:: yes, yes i'm fine! ::glares, then smiles:: sorry, yes i'm fine thank you
SquirtLaWort: EM: I know that's why I didn't want to hurt you, I wanted to find the right way to tell you but I knew no matter what how I told you would be hurt. I'm so sorry Libby. I relize now I should have told you about this from the start.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at him with cold green eyes:: Yes. You should have. ::turns away:: I'll be dating other men now, you know.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks up at John:: Are you sick?
FraserM1986: Jn: sick, good heavens no. Just a bit of the flu, that all ::coughs::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks away:: Good for you.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks over at erin:: Alex told Libby about Ethan's secret - that's why they're fighting
YarnKittymon: LB: ::even colder:: It will be nice to spend time with men who can afford to take me out for a decent meal.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::tail twitches:: Oh.
HJennyG: ER: ::shocked:: Alex! How did...why did?
Quantum Catz:
BM: I don't know how he knew but they were fighting and he said it to upset her ::looks over at john:: are you sure you're okay for the show?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::feeling his anger rise but stops himself from saying anything he'll regret by walking out the door::
FraserM1986: Jn: Yes, yes, I'll be fine, just dust myslef down a bit and everything will be great ::coughs:: just great
YarnKittymon: LB: ::wipes her eyes on her sheets, getting make-up on them; goes into the bathroom and washes up, then goes backstage again, still looking utterly dejected, but trying to hide it::
YarnKittymon: LB: Oh, John, Erin, good, you're here. The show will begin soon.
HJennyG: ER: ::nods::
YarnKittymon: LB: Please change into your costumes.
HJennyG: ER: ::walks through to change::
EM: Storms out past the customers ignoring thier stares, 'how did she find out anyway? Becky or Erin must of told her, how could they!?'::
FraserM1986: Jn: ::also goes somewhere to get changed::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::worriedly to libby:: Is everything okay?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: No. I told you, I'm a fool.
Quantum Catz: BM: You're not! He loves you
YarnKittymon: LB: He's pledged his life to another woman! He hasn't even divorced her! I...::swallows::...I loved him, Becky, but I would've been better off following Mother's advice and just marrying a rich man.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::stops outside the Freak show doors wondering if he should go back inside and try to talk to Libby again::
YarnKittymon: : ::a lady passing by sees Ethan and smiles:: Oh, are you really going to be in the show today, Ethan?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at the lady trying to smile:: I don't know I'm not feeling to well.
Quantum Catz: BM: No offense but your mother's an idiot - and his wife doesn't *care* about him anymore, they're never going to be together again
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: It's not *so* difficult to obtain a divorce...
Quantum Catz: BM: I think it's harder if she's against getting one though - she thinks its a sin, remember?
HJennyG: ER: ::returns in costume, stands by quietly listening to Libby's conversation::
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman looks quite disappointed:: Oh...then there's no sense in going to the show today. Any idea when you'll perform next?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::struggling to keep from crying again:: It...is a sin...probably...but...we'd be forgiven...::shudders:: He hasn't even seen her in two years. Maybe she's *dead.*
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::laughs:: You only come to the show to see me? That's pretty flattering, but I don't know when I'll be back, maybe I should try to go on just for today if I can.
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman smiles:: Oh, please do! ::reaches into her purse; hands him a dollar:: Please....
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::hands her the dollar back:: I'll try but no promises. ::head back inside.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Maybe you shouldn't do the show today, you're pretty upset
YarnKittymon: LB: They've paid already. I have no choice. ::stands:: Not that it will be much of a show.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::walks back stage and see everyone gathered around Libby::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at Ethan with a blank expression:: Will you be performing today?
SquirtLaWort: EM: not if you don't want me to..
YarnKittymon: LB: No. You've seen our show; I need all the acts I can get.
SquirtLaWort: EM: I'll go on then, just for today though.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: Ethan, I don't know if the show can succeed without you.
SquirtLaWort: EM: Do you really want me to stay?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods weakly:: I...I rather hate you right now, but maybe that will change. And we need you.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::nods:: Alright.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at Erin and Becky wondering which one told her::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::still quietly:: It's time to start the show, then. Ethan, put on your costume. Everyone else, get ready. ::heads out onstage, still looking sad and broken, but serves as an adequate ringleader::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::notices ethan's look and frowns:: It wasn't me or erin, we promised we wouldn't tell didn't we? ::then she teleports away to turn on the lights::
SquirtLaWort: EM: Yeah right! I didn't tell anyone else.
HJennyG: ER: ::indignantly:: Well *I* certainly didn't say anything, and neither would Becky.
EM: ::frowns:: How else would she have found out..
HJennyG: ER: I don't know, but if you had done the right thing in the first palce she would never have had to find out this way ::crosses her arms::
EM: ::sighs:: Your right, but I don't need to hear any lectures from you.
HJennyG: ER: ::lowers her eyes:: I know. Anyway - I'm on now ::heads out onstage::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs, looking helplessly at Ethan::


YarnKittymon: : ::after the show, Libby has another "Meet the Freaks" act, though the price has been raised to a quarter, and she's almost completely lacking enthusiasm; as such, the turnout for it is rather poor, and Erin only has a few people to see her. One of them is Samantha, the overly-friendly young lady she met a month ago, and who's been to nearly every show since::
YarnKittymon: SM: ::waits patiently until Erin's finished with the other people who want to see her, hoping to get more time at the end::
HJennyG: ER: ::finishes a conversation with a young man, he goes away looking quite pleased. She's glad there has been no obsessive people today, and smiles nicely at the next person::
YarnKittymon: SM: ::grinning:: Oh, Erin! I'm so sorry I haven't seen you more often, but I don't have a quarter to spare every day, you know! ::presses the coin into Erin's hand::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::watches the scene without interest::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks over at Libby, concerned::
HJennyG: ER: ::cringes suddenly as she recognises her as the odd lady who she signed her arm:: Oh, yeah, hello Samantha.
YarnKittymon: SM: ::grins:: And you remembered my name too! ::grabs Erin's arm:: Please, I paid a whole quarter, and I'll pay another if you'd like. But you simply *must* look through my eyes!
YarnKittymon: DN: ::is playing with a small girl, one of the few children who have come to see him whose parents allow her to frolick with the giant cat::
HJennyG: ER: Wel, I don't know if there's time... ::looks hopelessly at the empty queue:: Are you sure you want me to? You don't actually feel anything yourself - you know.
YarnKittymon: SM: I know, but I'd feel so *close* to you! Please do!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::still watching, rather bitterly, though in a low voice:: Even *Erin* has people in love with her...
Quantum Catz: BM: Ethan *does* love you
HJennyG: ((Eh, what do you mean 'EVEN Erin'? :P))
Quantum Catz:
YarnKittymon: ((I know, but she's in a bad mood. ^_^))
HJennyG: ER: ::looks over to Libby, but can't see her. Considers the extra quater:: Alright, for an extra quarter. ::smiles, guiltily, but the woman is obviously crazy and it wouldn't hurt to make extra money::
YarnKittymon: LB: He has a nice way of showing it. ::shakes her head, glancing at Ethan, who's still got a few young women to entertain::
HJennyG: ((Your forgiven then ^_^))
YarnKittymon: SM: ::rummages through her purse, and, after searching for a couple minutes, draws out two dimes and a nickel:: This will do, right?
HJennyG: ER: ::distractly:: Sure ::pockets the coins, then searches for another chair:: Sit here ::motions to a bench by the wall::
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: SM: ::sits down, smoothing her skirt, and smiling at Erin::
HJennyG: ER: ::hesitates, this woman gives out wierd vibes...:: Right, if you've been to my shows then you'll know how it's done - take my hand.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: Becky, what am I going to do with myself? This show won't come anywhere near making me rich, and I can't...I *won't* do it next year...
YarnKittymon: SM: ::smiles at her again, taking Erin's hand with both of her own::
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm sure...you'll find something else you can do. And you don't have to be rich to be happy
HJennyG: ER: ::closes her eyes briefly:: Done.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::blankly:: And I guess you'll go find something wonderful to do with yourself, once everyone's left Coney Island.
YarnKittymon: SM: ::doesn't let go of Erin's hand for a while, then stands and goes behind Erin, putting her hands over Erin's eyes:: What am I looking at?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::wearily:: Sure, why not?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: And then I'll be alone again.
RGRIFFITHK: ER: ::sighs:: You're looking at the top of my head...
YarnKittymon: SM: Well, I guess that's too easy...how about now?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Well *I* can't really go far - i promised Dan i'd stay with him
YarnKittymon: SM: Oh, is that her name...who is she? She's talking to...oh, whoever's name is outside in front...the one who owns the show...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles weakly:: Don't be too angry if I seem happy about that.
RGRIFFITHK: ER: She's the girl who does the lighting. And yes, she's talking to Libby.
YarnKittymon: SM: We should go outdoors! There's a million rides and people to look at out there!
Quantum Catz: BM: I never said i was *un*happy about it - i wouldn't have said i'd stay if i didn't mean it
RGRIFFITHK: ER: ::prises Samantha's hands from over her eyes:: Why? Don't you feel *close* enough to me in here?
YarnKittymon: LB: Well, I suppose Daniel will grow up one day, though I'm not sure how he'll do on his own...
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm not sure where he'd *go* if he was on his own
YarnKittymon: LB: He'll learn to take care of himself, somehow. ::soberly:: I hope.
YarnKittymon: SM: ::takes Erin's hand again:: I guess this is close enough, but wouldn't it be wonderful to go out together?
RGRIFFITHK: ER: ::looks uncomfortable:: Well, frankly, no. Not really. I think you've had your quarters worth.
YarnKittymon: SM: ::in a quiet voice:: Oh.
Quantum Catz: BM: Well i'll look out for him till he can
YarnKittymon: LB: ::weakly:: I like having you around, Becky.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles slightly:: I like having a home to go back to
RGRIFFITHK: ER: ::cheerfully:: Well, come back and watch the show soon ::tries to lead her towards the door::
YarnKittymon: SM: ::softly:: I will, if I can find the money.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly, smiling weakly:: Even if I treat you like a child?
