YarnKittymon: : ::they make it to the forest outside Saxton in fair time, without incident, but Joshua cringes when they come nearer to the dense forest surrounding their town::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::raises his hand to rest it on his brother's leg, reassuringly::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she is walking along side the horse, finding out that she prefers to have both feet on the ground and she misses the look on Joshua's face::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly, to Maeve:: Make sure to keep into the path
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances up at him:: Why? Whats around here?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::suddenly whimpers as they hear a noise a little like the wind rustling leaves, but a little different; he very nearly sets the horse galloping, but looks back at his brother, petrified::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances around:: What was that?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: The monsters. They'll get us all.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::tightens his grip on his brother:: Don't worry - you know i'd never let anything happen to you - and we should be fine on the path
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes narrow:: Really? ::looks back into the forest and takes one step towards it::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::yells:: Don't go in there!
Maeve Owens: MV: I'm not about to let them just wander around free so they can start picking off travelers that come by! You two are welcome to stay here or move on without me.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sharply:: No! You'll just end up dead and i'm not going to let that happen ::gets off of the horse:: You can't go in there
Maeve Owens: MV: ::with an edge to her voice:: Watch me.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::slips off of the horse, his knees shaking, and ties up Sandy::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::heads off towards the woods::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::Runs after her and grabs her arm to stop her:: Are you insane? I can't just go home and let you walk in here to your death!
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: They killed Mr. Quinn and he was a hero.
Maeve Owens: MV: Actually I'd prefer it. It would be safer for you. Unless you've got an active power...
Quantum Catz: IS: I'm a healer - but neaither of us is going in there ::looks back at Joshua, worriedly:: Get back on the horse
YarnKittymon: JH: ::shakes his head, walking over to them:: I think there's two monsters. If there's three of us we might win.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes widen at the boy and she shakes her head:: No, absolutely not. I'm going in there alone and thats final. I dont need anyone else dying on me because of something I've set my mind to. ::attempts to move towards the forest again::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::glares at Joshua, his fear of the monsters and his concern for both Joshua and Maeve making him snap:: Get back on Sandy, now Josh!
YarnKittymon: YarnKittymon rolled 2 6-sided dice: 2 5
Maeve Owens: MV: You too Isaac, I can take care of myself. ::mutters:: Its not like Im completely helpless.
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve suddenly feels a cold hand on her neck and falls to the ground, completely unable to move; she knows she's being drained::
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve can't see a thing, but Isaac and Joshua can see one of the monsters kneeling by Maeve--it's the male, with long blonde hair and rotting flesh; he glares up at them as if daring them to attack::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::stares at the monster for a moment in shock and then moves deliberately towards him:: What, you're so weak you have to go for the woman?
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster smirks, glancing down at Maeve, who's slowly growing weaker:: They taste better.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::hesitates, a flash of fear crossing his face, and then runs at the monster, hoping to knock it away from Maeve::
Quantum Catz: Quantum Catz rolled 2 6-sided dice: 2 3
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster smiles:: Can't even touch me, can you? Go back to your town like all the others.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::his heart racing and his face pale:: Give back Maeve and I will
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster ignores Isaac, further draining Maeve::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::throws a rock at the monster's hand::
YarnKittymon: YarnKittymon rolled 2 6-sided dice: 2 6
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster looks at Joshua, growling::
Quantum Catz: IS: Joshua get out of here! ::does the only thing he can think of and tries to touch maeve and use his power to keep her alive::
Quantum Catz: Quantum Catz rolled 2 6-sided dice: 5 4
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster yells, pulling back from Maeve quickly, and thereby stopping draining her. Maeve's weaker (a point weaker :P ) and rather tired, but free to move again::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::keeps using his power on Maeve, watching her to see if she's well enough to move::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she attempts to push herself up into a sitting position and get a look at whats going on around her, her eyes wide and a bit terrified at being held captive, unable to move:::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::grabs Maeve's hand to help her up:: Come on
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster's retreated a few steps, away from Isaac and Maeve; if she's alert Maeve can see Joshua a little further back, half-hidden behind a tree::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she lets him pull her up, still looking for the cause::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks around for Joshua::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she catches site of the evil looking creature and her breath catches in her throat. A minute later fire flashes in her eyes and she pulls her arm free of Isaac and makes fireball, taking a step towards the creature and attempt
Maeve Owens: s to hit him with the fireball::
Maeve Owens: Maeve Owens rolled 2 6-sided dice: 2 6
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is half-behind a tree, still looking rather scared::
YarnKittymon: : ::the fireball misses, and the monster jumps at Isaac, trying to get ahold of any part of his skin::
YarnKittymon: YarnKittymon rolled 2 6-sided dice: 2 3
Quantum Catz: IS: Are you *crazy*! ::grabs Maeve's hand and tries to pull her back towards the horse:: Joshua! Run!
YarnKittymon: ::and misses::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::goes back a couple steps, ready to loose Sandy if Isaac somehow gets Maeve out::
Maeve Owens: MV: Certifiably ::forms another fireball and throws it at the creature:::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::keeps trying to pull her out of the forest::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::is pretty much resisting until she's killed the thing::
Quantum Catz: IS: You'll die if you fight it!
Maeve Owens: MV: No I wont! Just as long as it doesnt appear out of nowhere again!
YarnKittymon: : ::the fireball glances the monster's hand, which burns its flesh and makes it yell; it comes forward, hoping to grab Maeve or Isaac::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::squeals a little in alarm and tries to throw another at it::
YarnKittymon: : ::the fireball hits the monster square in the chest, but this time it doesn't miss a beat, and just keeps advancing::
Quantum Catz: IS: But it's not the only one! Come on!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she moves back, not wanting it to plow into her but she keeps throwing fireballs at it::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks momentarily terrified; turns to Joshua:: If you don't get on that horse and back to town right now, i swear, Josh I will-- ::stops shorts of saying that he'll kill his brother and focuses his attention on making sure mae ve gets out of there and there aren't any other monsters about::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster takes a couple more fireballs, and then tries to grab at Maeve::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::unties Sandy, but doesn't get on the horse yet::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::prepares to use his power again if the monster grabs Maeve::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::attempts to step out of its reach, throwing another fireball at it::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster winds up grabbing Isaac instead, and his hand feels like it burns the young man's flesh, but Isaac can still move, and the monster looks rather afraid::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::stares at the monster, shocked at the fear in its face::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::makes two fireballs and throws it at the creature:: Would you die already!
YarnKittymon: JH: ::about the same time Maeve throws the fireballs:: Don't! You'll hit him!
YarnKittymon: : ::one of the fireballs hits the monster squarely, so that the heat almost singes Isaac's hair; the other one misses...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::cries out when the heat of one of the fireballs burns the arm the monster's holding - he tries to use his power to ease the pain, though he knows he can't really heal himself::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster yells out again; it seems like he's trying to pull himself away from Isaac now, but can't::
Maeve Owens: MV: Let him go! ::attempts to pry his hands from Isaac:::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks about as afraid of the monster as it is of him but he uses his free hand to stop Maeve pulling at the monster's grip:: Don't - get to the horse! ::tries focuses his mind on 'healing' the monster::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster finally gasps:: Let me go...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::angrily:: *Why*? You nearly killed my brother - i'll never forgive you for that
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster's gasping voice almost whines:: We'll...leave your town...I promise...
Maeve Owens: MV; ::angrily::; And every other town? You caused a friend of mine to die and I dont plan to let you walk *free*.
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster whimpers:: Isaac...please...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she steps around them, with fire on her hands she pushes at the monsters back, leaning slightly to try and knock him away from Isaac instead of into him:: You dont deserve to live.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::his eyes widen:: How do you know my name?
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster gasps at the fire from Maeve's hands, but still can't let go of Isaac:: You remember...when Birch Stewart went missing...six years ago...?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::trying not to look afraid:: What, did you kill him too?
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster narrows his eyes:: I *am* him, Isaac...and we can bring your mother back too...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::a hopeful look crosses his face although he quickly hides it:: My mother's dead - and don't you dare try to suggest she's a monster like you ::tries to use more of his power on the monster::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster groans softly, closing his eyes::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::throws another fireball at the creatures back::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster whimpers softly::
YarnKittymon: : ::very suddenly, and rather bizarrely, the flesh suddenly disappears off the monster and Isaac is left holding a pile of weathered bones and the monster's clothes::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sighs in relief::: One down, one to go. ::looks around for Joshua::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is back by Sandy, still, shaking in terror; softly:: Isaac?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks back at Isaac:: Are you okay? Because I think you should take your brother and get out of here.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::stares at the monsters remains, almost in shock; then turns to Maeve:: No, you're coming too - if you stay here, it'll just sneak up on you like this one did
Maeve Owens: MV: Not if I'm being distracted. Its not safe for him to be standing out there unguarded and we cant just leave these things here to roam. ::pats his shoulder and turns around to leave::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::grabs her arm:: No!
Maeve Owens: MV: Would you just get out of here! Before they attack him or kill you! They need you... I've got no one. OKay? So just go. ::attempts to struggle free::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks down:: I owe Donald the biggest debt...and i don't think he'd want me to let you die - besides, i'm not the kind of person to leave someone in danger
Maeve Owens: MV: I'm not in danger and your brother is the most vulnerable sitting out there. You really just want me to walk away and let them get away with it all?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::suddenly screams, and they hear a brief, scared whinny that's suddenly cut off as the horse falls to the ground::
Quantum Catz: IS: Josh! ::turns and runs straight towards his brother::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she takes off after him::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::is hiding behind a tree; breathing hard; Sandy is lying down, twitching involuntarily, as the female monster is draining him::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she heads for the creature and the horse, her eyes narrowed:: I'm curious, what exactly are you? I'd kind of like to know before I send you to meet your friend. ::smiles::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::pauses halfway between Joshua and the monster; glances at his brother:: Are you okay?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::nods, his voice shaking:: I'm fine.
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster grins at Maeve:: I'll make another friend, then, won't I?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves slowly towards the horse, not sure if this monster knows that his power will drain it::
Maeve Owens: MV: How many more are there of you? ::and she's still approaching it also,waiting for a moment when its safe to start roasting it::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster grins:: A hundred. Go away and I'll let the horse live.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::reaches quickly down to grab onto one of the horses legs::
Maeve Owens: MV: I'm not about to go away and let you walk free.
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster yells, but somehow manages to step back from the horse, glaring at Isaac, then back at Maeve; after a moment, she runs::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::forms a fireball and runs after her, tossing it as she does so:: Coward! Come back and fight!
YarnKittymon: : ::the fireball hits, but the monster keeps running::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::tosses another one, not about to let it get away::
Quantum Catz: IS: Josh, go home now! ::runs after Maeve::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster keeps running, slowing slightly, and then stopping to hide behind a tree, rather obviously::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::stays with Sandy, trying to revive the unconscious horse::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she stops, her eyes glaring coldly at the creature::: You must really be bad at playing hide and seek.
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster looks back at Maeve for a moment, then runs forward at her::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::forms a fireball in each hand and tosses both of them at her, backing up as she does so::
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster is hit and yells, but Maeve steps backwards right onto a thin crust of earth that collapses, dropping her foot squarely into a thick, glowing, blue gel that feels about a quarter as bad as when the other monster was draining her::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she gasps in pain and tries to pull her foot free::
YarnKittymon: : ::her foot seems firmly stuck, and she can hear the monster laugh as she hurries away::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::glares at the monster:: This isn't over!
YarnKittymon: : ::the monster isn't vain enough to reply, and just works on escaping::
Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve ::catches up to her, watching the monster run away, with a frown::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::still struggling to get her foot loose and trying to ignore the pain:: Darn it! ::getting quite frustrated and angry with herself::
YarnKittymon: ((How tall a shoe is Maeve wearing? Like a boot? A regular flat shoe? What? Not that she's not in trouble either way ^_^; ))
Maeve Owens: ((a regular flat shoe))
YarnKittymon: ((So the stuff would be touching her skin?))
Maeve Owens: ((yeah...))
Quantum Catz: IS: Hell! You're more trouble than you're worth! ::touches Maeve's arm to use his power and try to stop her energy being drained to the point of death, although he's not sure how to get her out of the trap short of cutting her foot off and he looks worried::
YarnKittymon: : ::Isaac feels rather strange, a little like he's being faintly drained, and his power doesn't seem to help Maeve at all; worse, he can't let go of Maeve's arm::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Like I haven't ...been told that... before? ::trying to catch her breath:: How do I get out of this thing?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::Tries hard to figth back the feeling of being drained:: I can't die now, i can't ::frowns:: If it wasn't touching your bloody skin we could try to pull your shoes off
Maeve Owens: MV: :::pales:: You mean theres no way out of this? and you're not going to die.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sharply:: Well i can't let go of you, so unless you have a knife handy and feel like chopping off your leg, i don't think we get a choice in the dying thing
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks up at him, horrified, and tugs on the hand holding her:: What do you mean you cant let go!?
Quantum Catz: IS: Exactly what i said ::takes a deep breath:: Josh had better have gone home and found Eli or Dolly or i swear i'll come back and haunt him
YarnKittymon: : ::they hear a twig snap, coming from the direction of the path::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sadly:: I'm sorry I pulled you into this.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her head snaps towards the sound::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::Can't help but smile at Maeve:: There's not many guys can say they died with a beautiful woman in their arms....or stuck to their bloody hand anyway
YarnKittymon: JH: ::peers at them from about ten feet away, looking rather pale; doesn't speak::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes flash fire:: Yes but all of you sure are intent on dying! Uhg!
Quantum Catz: IS: ::Mutters:: I'm not intent on dying, i just can't think of anything to do!
Maeve Owens: MV: Well you can start by thinking of a way to *not* die out here instead of just assuming your death is looming over your head!
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: I'll go for help.
Quantum Catz: IS: You think i'm not trying to think?! ::turns to glare at Joshua:: And put someone else in danger? No. And why are you still here?
YarnKittymon: JH: ::walks nearer, though not close enough for Isaac to reach, in case his brother's angry; looking quite upset:: I don't want you to die.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::looks straight at his brother, hoping he understands how much he loves him:: It's my job to protect you, Josh, not the other way round
Maeve Owens: MV: Why are you stuck to me anyway?
Quantum Catz: IS: How should i know? It's just hte way the traps work
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly, his voice shaking:: Should I bring back a knife?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she reaches down and tries to clear away anything that could catch on fire and attempts to burn the goo away from her foot::
YarnKittymon: : ::the stuff catches fire quite spectacularly, like alcohol, roaring up and singing the hem of Maeve's skirt::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::gives a surprised squeal and attempts to smother the flames before they cause too much damage::
Quantum Catz: IS: Maeve! ::Tries to help her with his spare hand::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::swats him away:: Stop it! You'll get burned!
YarnKittymon: : ::the flames don't smother, but they die away about fifteen seconds later, and they don't feel like they're being drained anymore--the goo has completely burned away::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles:: Ah ha! Not completely helpless.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::can now let go of Maeve and immediately runs over to hug his brother; though he quickly pulls away and says:: You know you're grounded for not listening to me, right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::rubs her foot, and glancing in the direction the monster disappeared in, contimplating going after it::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::smiles:: As long as you're back safe to ground me, I don't care how long it's for.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles slightly and musses up his brother's hair as he stands up; turns to look at Maeve:: Look, i'm tired from using my power so much on that first guy - i'm taking Josh home, you can do what you like
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Thats a good idea. ::she doesn't take her eyes off the forest in front of her::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::softly:: Please, Miss Owens. You can come back later. She just got stronger from draining the both of you.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: I dont have any more energy to go... running after her.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles rather gratefully:: Come on then, we better get out of here in case any of them heard that
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sighing, she turns around and walks towards them:: Still dont want to just leave them out there.
YarnKittymon: JH: ::quietly:: I don't think they thought we could kill them. Maybe Saxton won't be scared now.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::sighs:: I hope so
YarnKittymon: JH: ::frowns:: Mr. Cook is going to be really mad.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks at the poor horse and winces:: I hope it recovers.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::pats Sandy:: There's not much we can do about that, at least we're alive
YarnKittymon: JH: ::kneels and pats the horse, which blinks back:: I think we can get him to walk if we try hard enough.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::tries to use some of his power to revive the horse just enough to walk::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::stands there, watching them silently::
YarnKittymon: : ::the horse whinnies, looking rather surprised, and slowly gets to his feet::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::grins; half-jealously:: I can't help him go faster unless...you think he likes chocolate?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes widen::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::rubs his eyes, feeling tired; smiles weakly:: He's probably never been fed any, it can't be good for horses
YarnKittymon: JH: I'll try anyway. ::puts his hand in front of the horse's nose, and Maeve catches the scent of chocolate; Joshua walks backwards to try to lead the horse, and the horse follows, though probably not enticed by the scent of chocolate::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods, smiling:: Now that is what I call a neat power.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles lovingly at his brother as he follows him:: Guess it depends on whether or not you're a chocolate fan
Maeve Owens: MV: ::grins:: Oh definitely a chocolate fan.
YarnKittymon: JH: Well, don't lick me; I don't *taste* like chocolate.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::laughs:: Dont worry, I wont bite. Dont know about the horse though.
YarnKittymon: : ::the horse still looks rather exhausted, but it's plodding along nearly as fast as a walk::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::keeps half of his attention on the trees, remaining quiet::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::quietly:: I'm sorry about your mother... was she taken by one of them things?
Quantum Catz: IS: No...a stroke - i've looked after the others ever since
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Oh. ::stays quiet, kicking loose pebbles along the path and trying not to let the silence get to her::
YarnKittymon: : ::after a little while, they see a small yard to the left, hemmed in by a wooden fence and gates; shortly thereafter the path descends, a little steeply, down towards the town; they can smell the ocean::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::moves closer to the horse to make sure it doesn't stumble on the steep path in its tired state::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::looks at the gates as they pass by, sighing slightly::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::just glances around the small town, her arms wrapped tightly around herself, looking more depressed::
YarnKittymon: : ::they can see the town in another several yards; it's a beachside village with about fifty wooden houses, and about ten fishing boats docked. The ocean looks very odd, and very blue; it goes out over a quarter of a mile and then suddenly seems to stop, hemmed in by a just half-transparent blue wall that goes up so high it seems to blend into the sky::
Maeve Owens: MV: Well, um, thanks for the escort...although I'm pretty sure you're probably regretting it by now. ::smirks::
YarnKittymon: JH: ::starts leading the horse down to the stables near the edge of town; looks back at Maeve and his brother:: You two go home; I can take care of Sandy and Mr. Cook.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head:: Actually, if you just want to tell me where I can get a room for the night I'll get out of your way...
Quantum Catz: IS: ::considers arguing with his brother but he's feeling a bit too tired:: You know we're perfectly nice people...you don't have to rush off first chance you get
Quantum Catz: IS: Besides there aren't any inns here
YarnKittymon: JH: ::leads Sandy off, patting him every so often::
Maeve Owens: MV: Well, I was kind of figuring you'd want to be rid of me... and if there isnt any inns then...I guess I'll be returning tonight. ::frowns::
Quantum Catz: IS: Well there aren't any monsters in town for you to face us up against so i think i can manage - and you're welcome to stay with us, don't rush off...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks a little hesitant:: I'm not even sure how I'm going to get back...
YarnKittymon: : ::a rather ugly, stout man, with sunburned skin, approaches them--he looks so clearly *alive* he's rather a comforting sight; smiles at Isaac, patting his shoulder:: Hey, kid, glad to see you back.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::rather wryly:: Good to make it back
Maeve Owens: MV: ::winces::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods to Maeve:: And you're the young woman from the photograph, if I'm not mistaken. Pleased to meet you, and I'm sorry we couldn't've met under happier circumstances.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she nods, smiling slightly:: Yeah...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks at the two of them:: You look like you've been through the mill, though. You all right?
Quantum Catz: IS: ::runs a hand through his hair:: We ran into the...monsters...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man's eyes widen:: And you're all right?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::stays quiet, nervously looking about::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a pair of birds in a nearby tree, one singing a little tune, and a breeze brings with it the unmistakable scent of fish::
Quantum Catz: IS: Only one of them attacked...when i tried to use my powers to keep Maeve here alive...they hurt it ::smiles slightly:: We managed to kill it
YarnKittymon: : ::the man's jaw drops:: You're sure?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::wrinkles her nose, feeling like this is the worst possible place she could end up..and staring at boats isnt helping::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::rubs his tired eyes again:: It sure looked like it
YarnKittymon: : ::the man shakes his head:: We'll talk about it in the morning. You two look exhausted. ::nods to Maeve:: You'd be welcome to stay with my wife and me; there's a little more room at our place.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes widen in surprise and she shakes her head:: Um, thanks for the offer but I wouldnt want to put you out, I can always just um, head back later... ::trying to cover up the panic she feels at staying with strangers::
YarnKittymon: : It's getting awful late for you to be going home, without a horse. Stay with the Kindalls if you like; they'll make room.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles hesitantly and wishes the ground would just swallow her up::
Quantum Catz: IS: I'm sure Josh'd prefer it if she stayed with us anyway - but we'd better get going now so i can check up on Dolly and Eli
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods:: I understand. Welcome back, kid.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: Thanks. See you later. ::looks at Maeve:: Our house is this way ::heads towards it::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::follows him::
YarnKittymon: : ::their house is at the center of town, not that big, but lovingly built. It has four rooms, with no glass windows, and a lean-to with a stove in the back. A boy and a girl, each about three years older than Josh, come running out when they see Isaac, each hugging him like they would their father::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::watches them sadly and after a moment finally glances away::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::smiles:: Take it you missed me then?
YarnKittymon: : ::they just nod, but finally the girl lets go and looks at Maeve; softly:: She's that man's girl...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances at them somewhat nervously:: Hi..
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: This's my sister Dolly and my brother Eli
YarnKittymon: : ::Dolly curtseys politely, and Eli half-bows::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles a little:: Nice to meet you.
YarnKittymon: : ::Dolly smiles shyly, then goes back to fixing supper, while Eli goes out to help the fishermen with their catches::
Quantum Catz: IS: ::softly:: Do you want to go to the graveyard before supper...?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shrugs:: I don't mind. I'm not in a real hurry to...visit there.
Quantum Catz: IS: ::nods:: There's always tomorrow if you want
Maeve Owens: MV: Sure.
