YarnKittymon: LB: ::is sitting on one of the benches in the stands; looks up at Jasmine:: Hello.
Griffchook: (( did these people hav nail polish?))

SP00KY One: MV: :::links her arm with her twin and skips up to the door of the Freakshow:::
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::she is dressed the same as her twin and skips along with her, she looks over her shoulder at Alex::: Come on you two hurry up!
SP00KY One: MV: ::rolls her eyes::: They should have had a longer honeymoon. :::groans:::
Alexlndigo: AX: Oh come on we had a rough night...
SP00KY One: SR: ::smiles up dreamly at Alex::: Mmm...that we did. :::giggles::
YarnKittymon: ((Yes, but it was probably mostly red or pink--and in 1925, at least, was only applied to the 'centre' of the nail, with 'the moon and the free edge...left colourless"))
YarnKittymon: LB: ::blinks:: Pardon me?
YarnKittymon: ((it entered the market in 1925))
Alexlndigo: AX: Libby this is my wife, Serena Indigo!
YarnKittymon: LB: When did *this* happen?
Alexlndigo: AX: yesterday.
SP00KY One: SR: :::her face lights up in a huge grin and she practically glows:::
Alexlndigo: FO: ::comes in looking pale::
Alexlndigo: FO: Maeve, Aldex, Alex and Serena, I'll be back to pic you up, see you later. ::leaves::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::coldly:: Nice of you to invite us, Alex.
SP00KY One: MV: ::leans over and whispers at Libby::: You didnt miss much, just a lot more kissing.
Alexlndigo: AX: Well it was at the spurt of the moment you know, I was bored, she was bored, we just got married!
Quantum Catz: BM: U got married cos you were bored?
YarnKittymon: LB: If you were so bored, you *could* have helped with the show for once. I had more than a dozen people demand their money back.
Alexlndigo: AX: Yes bored and in love!
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: It seemed like a good idea at the moment but then we thought about the possibility of little alex's and it wasnt such a good idea
SP00KY One: MV: :::hits her sister on the arm::: Must you remind me of the nightmares i had all night!
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::hits her back::: Ouch! I had them too!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at them for a moment, then just shakes her head:: I don't care anymore. Burn the place down if you like. ::pushes her way through them and goes out the door::
SP00KY One: MV: ::eyes light up::: Really? You want us to level the place?
Griffchook: Al::comes into the building::
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::jumps off the stage and follows libby to the door, looking worried::

SP00KY One: MV: Im Maeve
BBohusk: NK:: Miss Williamson! What's wrong? Aren't you going to introduce me to these folks?
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: ::grins and hits her sister again::: Stop messing around, Im Maeve
SP00KY One: MV: Are not! Stop trying to steal my identity! ::hits her again::::
Alexlndigo: AX: ::looks at the twins:: hey stop that, calm down somthing wrong withLibby!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::glares at Niklaus, not really caring if he suddenly appeared because of her or just because he showed up:: Go introduce yourself. ::keeps walking, towards Steeplechase Park::
SP00KY One: MV: ::stares at Alex dumbly::: Oh sorry.
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::looks innocent::: We were just playing. :::throws her arm around her twins neck::: See?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::runs after libby:: Hey wait up
Alexlndigo: AX: ::Looks at Maeve:: Okay Aldez, good.
Griffchook: Al::is totally confuzed::
SP00KY One:
SR: Alex, we should go see if Libby is ok.
SP00KY One: MV: I'm Maeve!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::keeps walking, but glances back at Becky:: I hope they *do* burn the place down.
Quantum Catz: BM: Why?
BBohusk: NL: ::Scratches head:: Oooo.k. :: Goes in to meet the others::
Alexlndigo: AX: ::looks around to see whos here::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::stops walking; closes her eyes and is silent for a while:: It'd be easier...
BBohusk: NL: Twins? Shouldn't you be connected or something?
Alexlndigo: AX: ::Alex starts to laugh::
SP00KY One: MV: ::stares at the stranger blankly:::
BBohusk: NL: What?
Alexlndigo: AX: ::falls down on the floor laughing::
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::stares at the stranger blankly:::
SP00KY One: MV: :::blinks:::
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::blinks:::
Alexlndigo: AX: Oh Thank God there not together!
SP00KY One: MV: ::kicks Alex
Griffchook: AL::even more confuzed:
SP00KY One:
::: is not that funny!
Alexlndigo: AX: ow...
Quantum Catz: BM: How would it be easier? You...wanted people like us to have somewhere to belong...and it makes you money i guess
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: we are better then a hundred of little alex's everywhere!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: All the work yesterday, and I lost two dollars! And the only time they show up for work at all is when we're closed!
Alexlndigo: AX: Hey Jasmine is here today! And what is your name shorty? ::looks at Niklaus::
SP00KY One: SR: :::looks a little uneasy:::
BBohusk: NL:Umma..::to ppl hasnt met:: Howdy'a do? Names Niklaus Leonov. Official strong guy.
Quantum Catz: BM: Well...what would you do instead?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::from the corner, cheerfully:: He almost killed a lady the other day!
BBohusk: NL::yeah,well...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly, miserably:: I guess I'll marry Theodore, if he'll have me.
Alexlndigo: AX: ::nods his head:: Well nice to met you Niklaus. ::steps in front of Serena:: a lady huh?
SP00KY One: MV: ::smirks::: And you are happy about that?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs:: She didn't *die.*
SP00KY One: MV: Well no one I supposedly almost killed *died* yet *I* am outcasted!?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns:: Who's Theodore?
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: That is so not fair
Alexlndigo: AX: :: tries to make Serena back up:: He..he..he..didn't die huh...
YarnKittymon: LB: A man I met a week or so ago. He seems kind, and he seems to have taken a shine to me, though I don't know why.
SP00KY One: SR: ::pushes at Alex:: Stop being paranoid.
Alexlndigo: AX: But sweetie...
BBohusk: NL:What's a maatter fella?
Quantum Catz: BM: But...do you like him?
YarnKittymon: LB: He's a writer...he's been to Hollywood...he knew Valentino, for heavens' sake!
Alexlndigo: AX: Looks at niklaus and holds out his hand to shake:: I'm Alex Indigo.
Quantum Catz: BM: So?
SP00KY One: SR: ::smiles up at him:::
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: So why did you almost kill someone?
YarnKittymon: LB: So I'd grow to like him, probably. There's no point in waiting for someone I'll never have, anyway.
BBohusk: NL::shakes hands:: Glad to meet you!
Quantum Catz: BM: You mean...Ethan?
Alexlndigo: AX: Yeah, so your strong? What a nice power.
YarnKittymon: LB: Once I'm married I won't be tempted.
SP00KY One: MV: ::looks around::: Where did becky and libby go?
TilotheClown: jm: They left.
Quantum Catz: BM: No, if you got married you'd still be tempted...it wouldn't change the way you feel
BBohusk: NL: This lady wanted me to throw her in the air and i hought she meant the audience. She flew into this other lady and hurt the other kladies head. And there was a fight...
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns:: Where did they go?
AX: Gee you guys, he worse then the twins and me...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::half-smiles at Becky:: Your solution would be to give up on wanting anything.
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: Oh really? cool! I want to fly! Toss me!
BBohusk: NL:Gee thanks...
TilotheClown: jm: ::sighs:: I've no idea.
SP00KY One: MV: ::glares at Alex::: I dont think so
Alexlndigo: AX: yeah lets see Aldez fly.
Griffchook: AL: oh lets all fly!...sumhow...
NL:toAZ::ERR. If ya really want.
Quantum Catz: BM: To try and realize that you can't have some things that you want
SP00KY One: MV: Yeah!
Alexlndigo: AX: Hey Jasmine, this is Aldez, my cousin, Aldez this is Jasmine!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles sadly:: I can't have anything I want, Becky. ::sighs:: The building's not insured. I suppose I should go back and make sure they really haven't set it ablaze.
BBohusk: NL:OK What were your names again?
Alexlndigo: AX: I'm Alex, this is my Wife Serena with the long black hair and gray eyes, and the twins are my cousins!
Quantum Catz: BM: I'd take you anywhere you wanted, Libby. If it made you happy. You gave me a home - do you realise how much i owe you for that?
SP00KY One: SR: :::smiles at him:: Hello
TilotheClown: jm: ::smiles at Aldez:: Hello.
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: ::smiles back::: hi

SP00KY One: SR: :::gazes at Alex and slowly turns into him. She reaches up and kisses him as himself:::
SP00KY One: MV: :::turns to her twin and hold out her right hand:::
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::takes her left hand and holds maeve's:::
Alexlndigo: AX: ::stands there for a second then pulls away:: I always get to kiss myself! hahah! ::hugs Serena::
BBohusk: NL: Uh...hmmm
TilotheClown: jm: ::sits in a corner to watch them all do their acts::
SP00KY One: SR: :::smiles and turns back into herself:::
SP00KY One: MV: :::forms a fireball on their connected hands:::
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: ::uses her power and the fire turns blue:::
Alexlndigo: AX::watches the new trick that the twins are doing::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::finally smiles:: I'm still taking the day off, so I'd better go back there and get all of them out of the building before they destroy it. ::walks back towards the Freak Show::
BBohusk: NL:Iya. Iya. Th-thats ...different.

Alexlndigo: AX: oh me, I'm not that talented really....
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: They probably won't go that far..
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs, a little frightened::
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: Come on alex, join in
YarnKittymon: LB: I wouldn't put it past them, though. ::comes back into the building, watching silently for a little bit::
Alexlndigo: AX: ::goes into the center of the room:: okay here it goes:: Holds up his hand, and starts to pop lightning around the room and spread his wings::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::stands behind libby:: Can't u turn up to put on these shows when we've got a paying audience?
SP00KY One: MV: :::takes the ball and tosses it up in the air:::
Alexlndigo: AX: ::shoots ligtning at it::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::clears her throat:: All of you! *I'm* going to spend the day at Steeplechase Park. You may join me if you pay your own way. If not, get out of my *house* and come back tomorrow. It will be near Independence Day, and we'll be very busy.
SP00KY One: SR: :::tugs on Alex's arm::: We can spend our honeymoon at the park! Come on!
Alexlndigo: AX: The ball turns blue as alex adds ligtning:: And thats my powers, I have lightning and wings!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::folds her arms:: At least do your acts on the street if you must; that way some paying customers might be attracted to see the show later!
BBohusk: NL:toLB: Steeplechase? Wha'fer?
SP00KY One: MV: ::shrugs::: Ok! :::skips out the door:::
Alexlndigo: AX: complain compain, atleast we showed up today.
TilotheClown: jm: ::stands and steps out of the building::
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::follows her twin:::
BBohusk: NL:Hey! Where're you guys going?
YarnKittymon: LB: And I *lost* money yesterday because you got "bored" and went off to marry without so much as inviting any one of us. I thought you thought more of us.
Alexlndigo: AX: ::takes Serena's arm:: To Steeplechase park, common Niklaus.
SP00KY One: SR: :::looks back at Libby::: It wasnt like that Libby, honest. And we do think a lot of you...
YarnKittymon: LB: ::back to Niklaus, almost yelling:: So we can all have a *wonderful* time!
Alexlndigo: AX: ::looks at Libby:: Well I wanted to do it privately, if you want, we can have a bigger one later.
BBohusk: NL::Shrugs:: When in Rome..
YarnKittymon: LB: Forget it. ::looks back at Jasmine and Alisha:: Are you coming?

Griffchook: AL:Im cummin!
SP00KY One:
MV: Look at me! I'm in the freakshow! Stop by tomorrow and you can see some more! Wohhoo!
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve is drawing quite a crowd; in fact, a few people throw coins at her feet::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs, watching libby, concerned, glances at Dan:: Sorry Dan, i don't think we can really take you
SP00KY One: MV: :::smiles proudly:::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs again::
TilotheClown: jm: ::frowns:: to a park? I think I'd rather stay home.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles towards him:: We need you to guard the building, remember?
YarnKittymon: DN: ::looks up at Jasmine:: I'm sure it's fun though.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::kneels down in front of him, smiling:: I'll bring you something back, okay?
Alexlndigo: AX: ::sees that Maeve is getting attention and wants some too:: Yes the FreakShow tomorrow be there! ::he spreads his wings and shoots lightning at the sky::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs, licking Becky's hand::
TilotheClown: ((Jasmine's turned into a hermit. ^_^; I don't think she'd want to go anyplace outside of her apartment unless she didn't have to.))
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::shoot ice at the fireballs, causes it to turn to water and spraying just about everyone:::
BBohusk: NL:I forgot my dumbbells! to jm: Might as well go. Could be fun.
YarnKittymon: : ::there is quite a crowd gathered by now--and a couple policemen coming down the street::

SP00KY One: MV: :::laughs and forms a couple of more fireballs:::
Griffchook: AL: stands around looking for powers to steal
AZ: :::looks innocent::: What?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shakes her head at them all showing off::
SP00KY One: MV: :::throws a fireball up and down and then shoots it towards Alex, barely missing him:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the policemen work to disperse the crowd, and tell the freaks to stop at once::
BBohusk: NL: ::goes in to fetch gear and comes back::
SP00KY One: MV: What? We were just playing?
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::grabs all the money up off the ground:::
YarnKittymon: : Public displays of dangerous--er--whatever that was--are not permitted, ma'am, and if you continue we'll have no choice but to arrest you.

Griffchook: AL: yea, ur borin
Griffchook: AL:silly copper
YarnKittymon: : I suggest you shut your mouths, or I'll place you all under arrest.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::inside, to Jasmine:: Are you sure you wouldn't like to come? I can pay if you need me to; it's only a quarter.
Alexlndigo: Ax: Looks at the cop:: yes sir!
SP00KY One: MV: :::mutters under her breath:::
BBohusk: NL:to AL:Hey you sound like some of the guys on the docks!
Griffchook: AL::licks her hand::
AZ: ::rolls her eyes and sighs:::
Alexlndigo: Ax: ::tries to walk off:: See officer we are part of the freak show, this is our job...
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer looks at them strictly:: We have our eye on this operation, you know. So be careful. ::walks away::
SP00KY One: MV: ::brushes past the cop, giving him a sour look::: Come on! Lets go play at the park!
Alexlndigo: Ax: ::runs after Serena::
TilotheClown: jm: No, no, I can pay for myself. I think I'd just rather go home.
SP00KY One: SR: ::smiles at Alex and reaches for his hand:::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs::
BBohusk: NL:That was close.
Alexlndigo: Ax: Serena, lets talk to Jasmine see if we can get her to come!
YarnKittymon: LB: All right. Come on; I'll walk you out. ::heads to the doorway, then whispers to Jasmine:: If you wouldn't mind terribly you could stay here with Daniel. He seems awfully lonely.
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::walks up to Libby and holds out her hand, in it is all the money that was laying on the ground::: Here ya go, dont say we never did nothhing for you. ::smiles:::
SP00KY One: MV: :::is still heading off towards the park, oblivious to the fact that no one is following her:::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks rather startled:: Oh my...::counts out eight quarters and puts them into the lockbox in the back; puts the rest in her purse:: I guess I can pay for everyone after all.
BBohusk: NL:to jm::See you later.
Alexlndigo: AX: ::heads back to look at Jasmine:: oh common Jasmine, come on.
TilotheClown: jm: ::hesitates:: Maybe just for a little while, then.
Alexlndigo: AX: yeah! lets go! ::races towards the part, having his wings help him glide::
YarnKittymon: LB: Oh, good. ::waves goodbye to Daniel, then leaves, locking the door::
YarnKittymon: : ::a policeman on the ground looks up at Alex, waving his baton::
Griffchook: AL:runs along after them::
NL:Cool beans! Take care Daniel!
Alexlndigo: AX: ::puts his wings in and just runs:: sorry...can't do anything fun!
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::looks around::: Wheres my twin!?
YarnKittymon: : ::it's not any distance at all to Steeplechase Park, as it's across the street; the entrance is just a couple blocks north of the Freak Show::
Griffchook: AL:Cya later danile!
AX: ::stops and looks for Serena:: Hey Serener! where are ya!?
SP00KY One: SR: ::taps his shoulder::: Right here
Alexlndigo: AX: Good, shall we go in now?
YarnKittymon: LB: It's sunny, at least, so it shouldn't be as crowded as it might be, otherwise.
SP00KY One: MV: :::waves from the entrance::: Will you people hurry up!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::buys tickets for all of them:: They're good for one of each ride.
SP00KY One: MV: yay, where is the fun house, time to scare people
BBohusk: NL::hussle hussle hussle::
YarnKittymon: : ::right inside the park, as you go in, is a giant tumbling barrel that the crowd is pretty much routed through; it tumbles everyone together unless they can keep their balance::
Alexlndigo: Ax: heh, good. ::looks around::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::purposely avoids the barrel, having no one to be tumbled with::
BBohusk: NL:toLB: And ppl think i'm a big spender.
Alexlndigo: Ax: Looks at Libby:: Hey Libby?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sharply:: Dry up, Niklaus. ::back to Alex:: Yes?
Alexlndigo: AX: do you think I should tell my father the truth about the fire?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::blinks, then looks down and shakes her head:: What good would it do?
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: ::dryly:: Not unless you want to be six feet under before your first anniversary
Alexlndigo: AX: ::looks at Niklaus and Libby:: Well he thinks someone eles killed my family...
YarnKittymon: LB: I wouldn't tell my mom--but then, I hate her.
Alexlndigo: AX: But I feel so wrong, I took everthing away, I think I should!
YarnKittymon: LB: Then go ahead. Maybe he'll forgive you.
Alexlndigo: AX: I don't think he'll forgive me, but I gotta tell anyways.
SP00KY One: SR: :::smiles sadly at Alex:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Alex suddenly disappears::
SP00KY One: SR: ::since she was leaning on him she falls over:::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::blinks:: That's one way to end a conversation, I suppose...
BBohusk: NL:I'm confuesd.
SP00KY One: MV: ::helps serena off the ground::: Now you really wont have a honeymoon. ::laughs::
Griffchook: AL:Yip
AZ: That can be a good thing
SP00KY One: MV: True
YarnKittymon: LB: ::blinks, then looks down:: I'm sorry.
SP00KY One: SR: :::sighs::: I hope he doesnt tell Fox. There is no telling what he will do.
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: thats ok Libby, just try to make sure he stays gone until their 50th wedding anniversary.
BBohusk: NL: Tell who what?
SP00KY One: SR: My husband :::pauses and smiles for a moment, realizing that was the first time she has called Alex that:::: wants to tell his father about the accident.
BBohusk: NL:I see,
SP00KY One: MV: :::stares up at the sky::: Oh please, no little alex's, I beg you.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quietly:: He killed his family.
BBohusk: NL:That's horrible! An accident you say?
SP00KY One: SR: :::nods:::

Griffchook: AL:fun is good...
AZ: Who to torment first?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles:: All right. ::motions at everything:: What do you want to try?
SP00KY One: MV: Fun house
YarnKittymon: LB: They don't *exactly* have what I'd call a Fun House...
SP00KY One: MV: ::looks disappointed::: Oh. Ok. Then what do they have?
BBohusk: NL:Yeah,fun! How about the horse track?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks, motioning to the horses above--just made of metal, but they go around on tracks all around the park, and "race", just powered by gravity::
YarnKittymon: ((Niklaus is a mind-reader too! Neat.))
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: Sounds like fun
BBohusk: NL:And,and the Insanitarium,too!
SP00KY One: MV: Lets go!
Griffchook: AL: YAY! fun!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::whispers to Niklaus:: Dry up! They don't know.
BBohusk: NL::whisper,whisper::oops. sorry.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::leads the way:: There's two on a horse--they say that the heavier the man, the faster the horse goes.
SP00KY One: SR: ::sadly follows behind the rest of them:::
SP00KY One: MV: ::looks puzzled::: Whats an insanitarium?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks back at Serena, not *meaning* to sound cold, anyway:: Cheer up--you have a man now, at least.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::to Maeve:: Sort of like a Fun House at the end of the ride.
BBohusk: NL:Nothing! Nothing at all! What's that over there? ::motions:
SP00KY One: MV: oh ok. Cool.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Libby:: You cheer up too, come on ::smiles::
SP00KY One: SR: :::tries to smile but it doesnt quite meet her eyes:::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::blinks at Maeve's slang, then smiles at Becky:: You want to ride with me? I doubt we'll win, of course.
Quantum Catz: BM: Sure
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks back at the others:: You pair up too, unless you want the attendant to pick for you.
EVIL TWlNS1909: AZ: :::grabs her sister by the arm:::

BBohusk: NL:Sure thing. ::goes into the crowd::
Griffchook: AL:HI serena!
SP00KY One:
SR: ::smiles::: Hello

BBohusk: NL:Uh,no. Funny thing,too. My boss just said to find someone and here you are. Imagine that!
Griffchook: AL::smiles::
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl laughs:: We'll win for sure!
YarnKittymon: : ::they get up some stairs, to the front of the line, and get arranged to race; then a little wall goes down, and they all start going around the park::
BBohusk: NL:You think? 'sworth a try anyway. ::gets on the ride::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::holds on to Becky tightly with one hand, and to her hat with the other; it seems a pretty dangerous attraction::
YarnKittymon: ((think streamlined carousel horses on a roller coaster track, four abreast, racing-style))
YarnKittymon: ((no poles of course))
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: Fun! I haven't been on any rides in ages

YarnKittymon: : ::Alisha suddenly disappears off the horse she's on with Serena::
YarnKittymon: : ::and in her place, Alex appears::

SP00KY One: MV: :::climbs on a horse::: Yeehaw!
Alexlndigo: AX: OH Hi Serena!
EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: :::climbs up next to her twin:::
YarnKittymon: : ::they whip around the track at a pretty good speed; Libby doesn't notice the disappearance or reappearance of anyone::
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl with Niklaus holds on to the horse tightly, crouched down like a real jockey, intent on winning::
Alexlndigo: AX: Ummm I thing I'm going to say ecckkkk! But I think I'll be a man and go weeeiiii! :: holds on tight::
SP00KY One: SR: ::::laughs and squeals some, keeping her eyes shut through most of it:::
EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: :::moves back and forth on the seat::: How do you make these things go faster?!!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shouts back:: They're just powered by gravity!
OnlineHost: YarnKittymon rolled 2 6-sided dice: 2 4
YarnKittymon: : ::as they're nearing the finish, Alex and Serena are at the front::
YarnKittymon: : ::suddenly a ping is heard, and something hits the "horse" Maeve and Aldez are riding::
Alexlndigo: AX: Hey look sweetie we won! ::kisses her::
YarnKittymon: ((It's not over yet))
BBohusk: NL:What wazat?
SP00KY One: MV: ::looks around:::: What the hell was that!?
EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: I think someone was shooting at us?
SP00KY One: MV: Why?
YarnKittymon: : ::no one on the ground seems to notice anything, although one looking down carefully might notice a man running away::
EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: I dont know!
YarnKittymon: : ::the horses cross the finish line, and Alex and his wife wind up winning after all::
YarnKittymon: : ::the ride comes to a stop::
SP00KY One: MV: :::groans::: Oh no! Alex won. Just what we needed!

Alexlndigo: AX: ::Looks at Serena:: heh
SP00KY One: SR: :::turns a bright red but manages to keep her skirt down:::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::already had hers gathered tightly around her knees, but watches everyone else, amused::
BBohusk: NL::Hums to himself and trys not to look to much:
YarnKittymon: : ::they're now on a stage, and the crowd below is cheering and laughing::

EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: thank you alexia!
Alexlndigo: AX: Alexia? Alexia!! I have you know that I'am not Alexia its Alex, am a Guy! I'm so a guy!
SP00KY One: MV: Yeah but there was that one time when all of that was in question.... :::giggles:::
YarnKittymon: : ::a clown comes onstage and picks up a hat that another woman lost--a very lacy one--and shoves it onto Alex's head (he has to jump to get it on him)::

EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: :::nods her head and smiles::: oh yes, that looks just wonderful on you Alexia!

SP00KY One: MV: :::links arms with Aldez so now she is in the middle of them:::
Alexlndigo: AX: ::looks over at Erin:: Hullo there Erin, long time no see!
Griffchook: ER: Just a minute ago
NL:Ummm,i'd guess the one on the right.
SP00KY One: MV: HI Erin! :::waves:::
SP00KY One: SR: Hello
Alexlndigo: Ax: yeah that could be her...
Griffchook: ER: ::waves back::
AX: ::graps Maeve:: ha your her!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::doubtfully:: So you came to Steeplechase too? ::walks away from the stage, out into the Pavillion of Fun, a massive building not completely unlike a huge greenhouse, filled with indoor attractions::
SP00KY One: MV: ::yanks her hand back::: Nope. try again
Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows Libby::
Alexlndigo: Ax: ::graps Aldez:: Gottcha!
Griffchook: ER: ::follows Libby:: I guess so. What are we doing here anyway?
AZ: ::::freezes his feet and then steps back::: nope.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sighs:: You just appeared, right? ::pauses, then smiles:: Well, you're here; that's good enough. Check your pocket--do you have a ticket?
YarnKittymon: : ::oddly enough, she does, and most bizarre of all, the Steeplechase horse ride has already been stamped::
Alexlndigo: Ax: oh common where is my Serena!
SP00KY One: SR: :::steps forward and kisses Alex::: Right here. ::smiles at him:::
Alexlndigo: Ax: aww...hello pretty girl..what up...sweetie..
SP00KY One: SR: :::still in Maeve's form::: Nothing. I'm a triplet now.
Alexlndigo: AX: I'm kissing my cousin! ahahahaha
EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: :::makes a gagging noise::::
Griffchook: ER: ::looks at tcket in amazement:: Wow, and it's even been stamped!
SP00KY One:
MV: Save us all!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks over her shoulder:: Wow.
YarnKittymon: : ::they hear a noise that sounds rather like firecrackers (at least, considering it's nearly Independence Day)::
SP00KY One: MV :::looks around again, finally remembering the shots that were fired::: What was that?
Alexlndigo: AX: .....
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly, a little pale:: I don't know...
EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: They are shooting at us again!
BBohusk: NL:Fire works? Black cats maybe?
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks at Alex, fear in her eyes::: We have to get out of here!
YarnKittymon: : ::a man in dark clothes makes his way nearer, and fires shots at the whole group, then slips away in the crowd::
Alexlndigo: AX: Was that gun shots? ::looks at Serena::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks around for some sign of someone shooting::
BBohusk: NL:Holy cow!!
SP00KY One: SR: :::laying on the ground, staring straight up in shock:::
Alexlndigo: AX: Serena your bleeding! ::goes to his knees by her:: Serena!
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks down::: Serena!
EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: Oh no! Serena!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::still pale:: If it's someone after us, we have to split up and try to find them. ::heads towards the exit::

BBohusk: NL:ToLB:I'll check around the roulette wheel!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::tries to figure out where a gunman would go; tries the Tunnel of Love::
Alexlndigo: AX: Serena..please...don't leave me..
SP00KY One: SR: ::she coughs, her voice faint::: I love you. :::her eyes close and her head falls back. she stops breathing:::
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks terrified::: No! :::nudges her::: wake up! you cant leave us!
YarnKittymon: : ::once the crowd figures out it's not an act, they gather around, some shouting suggestions to help, and several calling for a doctor::

BBohusk: NL:Where are those cops now that we actually need them!::continues on his way::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::watches the scene in dismay:: Alex!
SP00KY One: MV: Alex!
YarnKittymon: : ::somehow the crowd knows Alex's tricks aren't an act either, and they start to edge away, and then suddenly stampede in the opposite direction, several people falling::
EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: What are we going to do?
Alexlndigo: AX: ::the sky is full of lightning, enought to see from miles aways, his fave is emty::
YarnKittymon: ((They're inside a building, Alex. One made of steel and glass.))
Alexlndigo: AX: I'm going to find whoever done this, for you Serena...I'll find them! ::he walks forward, not caring which way his lighting hits, but it is mostly upward to the sky::
YarnKittymon: : ::most of the lightning hits the structure of the Insanitarium, blowing out all the electricity, and arcing off to injure or kill several people::
BBohusk: NL::to crowds::Everyone stay calm! You could get trampled!::delays his search to see if fallen need assistance::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::Backs away from the chaos, looking frightened::
SP00KY One: MV: :::tries to stop him::: Alex! You can't! You could hurt innocent people!
EVIL TWINS1909: AZ: Remember Alex? what you told us that night we wanted revenge for the death of our parents? You cant!
YarnKittymon: : ::none of the trampled are dead, although one has a broken arm--but a few people were killed outright by Alex's lightning::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sees the dead bodies and then looks over at alex, her eyes wide::

YarnKittymon: : ::for whatever reason, Becky suddenly disappears::
YarnKittymon: : ::one of the apparent dead is a priest, in a knee-length cassock; lightning is traveling all around his body--and he slowly sits up and opens his eyes, looking more than a little puzzled, though not really frightened::
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest looks around, still crackling with lightning:: Are you all right? Is everyone all right?
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest sees about four people on the ground, not moving; turns to Niklaus, who's trying to help:: Are they all dead? I would like to try something, if they are...
BBohusk: NL: I think so...It's worth a try.
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest reaches out his hands towards one down young woman and shoots electricity towards her; her body jerks, and she starts coughing, suddenly alive::
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest grins:: Thank you, Charles Kite! ::to Niklaus:: Check the next, please.
YarnKittymon: (( http://www.thebakken.org/artifacts/pacemakers.htm ))
BBohusk: NL:Yessirr! ::checks::
SquirtLaWort: (( I'm curious how are they being revived?))
YarnKittymon: ((Electric shock to the chest, which was suggested before 1800 as a way of reviving recently deceased))
YarnKittymon: ((Though not generally put into practice until much, much, MUCH later))
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest revives the other people Alex hit, each time, looking amazed that it works; the people are injured, but alive::
BBohusk: AX:I did this? ::looks at his hands realizing his woeful mistake:: ::to revived:: I'm so sorry!! Good Lord...
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: :::puts her arms around Alex::: It's ok, it was an accident. Everyones fine now.
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest's hair is still on end, but he's no longer sparking; looks at Serena, who's got a puddle of blood under her body; clearly doubts there's anything he can do::
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::looks from the priest over to Serena::: Can you... save her?
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest tries to shoot lightning at Serena, but he's all out; looks down:: Maybe a doctor could...
BBohusk: AX:Serena...I just wanted you to speak again...I just wanted those who harmed you to suffer. ::bows head and sobs half in anger half in shock;;
YarnKittymon: : I...doubt it would have helped anyway; I couldn't start her heart beating, if she hadn't enough blood to revive her body...
BBohusk: AX: ...
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::her eyes start water but she manages to hold it back::: We need to find the shooter. :::looks over at her twin and makes eye contact:::
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: :::nods and leaves Alex and walks towards the exit:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest looks at Alex, not touching him; softly:: I can perform the last rites if you'd like.
BBohusk: AX: Last rites?::puase:: Yes,I think that's what she wants. ::grasps his deceasesd wifes hand::
EVIL TWINS1909: SR: :::her body slowly shifts back to her form:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest blinks:: Is she...alive?
BBohusk: NK: :watches the scene:
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::puts her hand on her sister's arm::: Wait a minute. :::watches the priest:::
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: What happened?
YarnKittymon:: Well, no matter. ::the priest kneels next to Serena, saying a soft prayer, and putting oil on her closed eyes, her ears, her mouth, her nose, her hands, her forehead, and her heart::
YarnKittymon: : ::all the while, the priest prays for God's forgiveness and to restore grace to Serena's soul::
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: :::sniffs and a few tears escape her eyes::
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::sniffs and wipes a tear from her eye and whispers:::: Goodbye Serena, you were the closest friend I have ever had.
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: Come on, lets go. Time to catch a killer. ::::continues out the door:::
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: ::nods and follows her out::: I wonder who it was? And why? Why her? :::she pushes her grief down and allows the anger to take over:::
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: I dont know but we are going to find out.
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest looks up at Alex sadly:: I'm sorry, my son.
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::looks around outside of the building::: We waited to long, they could be anywhere by now!
BBohusk: AX:::to Serena: It was...not long. I thought we'd stay together forever. I'll miss you so much. Wait up for me o.k? ::nods head to priest::
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest stays on his knees, looking up at Alex; softly:: How long was it?
BBohusk: AX: Just one day. I must find the men who killed her. It may not be right but it's all I can think of.
YarnKittymon: : ::the priest looks at Alex sadly:: How sad...
YarnKittymon: : ::a couple police officers belatedly come into the nearly-empty Pavillion of Fun, their guns brandished:: Nobody move!
BBohusk: NK: scowls at cops:You're a little late.
BBohusk: AX: to MV: Where. Where do you think they could have gone?
YarnKittymon: : ::the officers look about ready to beat Niklaus, but they see Alex:: Freak! Stand up! Hands in the air!
BBohusk: AX:Out of my way copper. I have buisness to take care of. ::displays wings aggressively but has trouble generating sparks::
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: :::looks at her sister::: You know, the first two shot were fired at us. Maybe it was :::lets her thought trail off::::
YarnKittymon: : This is your last warning. We've got six more of us coming, and we'll fell you like a tree.
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: Meant for us. :::gets angry::: I knew this would happen if we stayed around!
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: Alex is going to hate us when he finds out.
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: ::shakes head::: Hopefully he wont find out, as long as we find him before everyone else does. Now, where would a killer go to hide....
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: The tunnel of Love?
BBohusk: AX:Whats the point. ::Steps outside(?) and looks for AZ,MV,and others he hasn't been paying much attention to comings and goings::
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: Perfect. Lets go.
YarnKittymon: : ::the police open fire on Alex::
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: ::jumps and hits the ground when she hears more gun fire:::
YarnKittymon: : ::a couple police officers run after the gunshots::
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::hits the ground too:: What was that?
BBohusk: AX: ::ducks::
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: :::nudges her sister::: Looks like Alex got in trouble with the police.
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: Should we help him or try to find the killer?
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: :::shrugs:::
YarnKittymon: : ::suddenly someone catches Aldez, holding a gun to her temple:: Neither.
BBohusk: AX:Leave her alone!
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: ::gasps::: Maeve!
: ::somehow, the bullets don't seem to be hitting Alex, so the police bodily tackle him::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man cocks the gun::
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::looks at her sister, fear in her eyes::: No, please, I can't lose her again. You took our parents, you took Serena, what more do you want?!
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: :::whimpers::: Maeve....
YarnKittymon: : ::the man just smiles:: The two of you.
YarnKittymon: : ::the police try to arrest Alex::
YarnKittymon: : ::a rock suddenly hits the man in the hand; he jerks his gun away from Aldez, though he's still holding her::
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: :::brings her elbow up and back into his stomach:::
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: ::goes for the gun:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man's fingers sting, and he lets go::
BBohusk: AX: ::arrested:: What's going on out there?! Is everyone alright?!
YarnKittymon: : ::the rest of the officers belatedly see the hostage situation::
EVlL TWINS1909: ((did he let go of me or the gun?))
YarnKittymon: : ::the man loosens his hold on Aldez, coughing::
YarnKittymon: ((Good question; now both ^^; I'm inept ^^; ))
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: :::drops to the ground and rolls away:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man jumps at Maeve, trying to kill her with his (now) bare hands, not heeding the police::
YarnKittymon: : ::a man Alex's probably met once or twice, with blonde hair, sneaks up next to Alex and puts his hand on his shoulder:: Don't fight them. I'll have you bailed out of jail within the hour.
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::she has the gun and tries to push him off of her but her hand tightens on the trigger and it goes off:::
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: Maeve!
YarnKittymon: : ::the man's eyes roll back in his head, and he slowly falls to the ground::
BBohusk: AX: ::confused looks at man::
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::looks down at the man at her feet, she drops the smoking gun and backs away:::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::doesn't look at Alex; is too frightened of the scene before him; runs to Maeve:: Are you all right?
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::is in shock, just staring at the man::::
YarnKittymon: : ::a couple of the officers try to drag Alex away::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::softly:: Don't worry; you won't go to jail.
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::her bottum lip trembles and her vioce cracks, she shakes her head::: I wanted him dead! I wanted him dead for four years! But now that.... my god, I killed him. :::she begins to sob:::
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: ::gets up off the ground and goes over to her sister:::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::puts his hand on Maeve's shoulder:: You're safe now.
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::reaches out and pulls her sister into a hug, she nods at Donald:::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::looks at Maeve; softly:: I'll deal with Alex right now. You have my number; phone me if you need anything at all, or leave a message with the maid.
EVlL TWINS1909: AZ: :::hugs her sister:::

EVIL TWINS1909: MV: ::nods::: Thank you. :::offers him a small smile:::

(back when Libby leaves)

YarnKittymon: : ::despite the ticket-taker's confusion, Libby manages to get onto the Tunnel of Love ride, looking around in the scenery for anyone suspicious--it's only a minute in that she realizes she's completely unarmed::
YarnKittymon: : ::suddenly, Ethan appears in the seat next to her, rocking the boat back and forth, but not tipping it::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks confused but sees Libby:: where are we now?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::just blinks, then looks away; mumbles:: tunneloflove
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::couldn't understand her:: what?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::doesn't look up:: The Tunnel of Love!
SquirtLaWort: EM: What! Why did you bring me here!
YarnKittymon: LB: I don't know! I'm here to look for a crazy gunman! But he'll shoot me if I find him.
EVIL TWINS1909: :::a tall man with dark wavy black hair holding a small hand gun is lurking in a boat ahead of Ethan and Libby. He is crouched down, trying to hide but is listening to their conversation::::
SquirtLaWort: EM: that doesn't make sence why are you looking for a gunman if he'll just shoot you when he finds you? your looking to get shot or something?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: He shot Serena; she may be dead. I just wanted to find the party responsible...
EVIL TWINS1909: :::the man hears Libby mention the dead woman and crouches down a little lower, but makes the boat rock a little:::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up at the boat; whispers:: Did you see that?
SquirtLaWort: EM: see what?
YarnKittymon: LB: I thought the boat moved...::pauses:: Sometimes lovers inside get...amorous; it may be nothing
EVIL TWINS1909: :::the man lets out a sigh of relief:::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks down:: I can't belive Serena got shot this is terrible.
YarnKittymon: LB: I should have stayed to help; I don't know what I was thinking...::suddenly stands in the boat, trying to get a better view of if anyone's in the one ahead::
SquirtLaWort: EM: What are you doing? sit down.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::does so, looking up at Ethan and pointing towards the boat, nodding::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::stands up to see what she's pointing at::
YarnKittymon: : ::there is a man in the next boat, crouched down::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::wispers to Libby:: Is that the guy?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly, but loud enough for the man to probably hear:: I think so.
EVIL TWINS1909: :::not thinking clearly the man jumps up, the boat rocking back and forth, and fires two shot at them, he looks around for an escape root and jumps into the water.::::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::though the man's aim isn't great, still has a bullet graze her forearm; shrieks::
SquirtLaWort: EM: Are you okay?!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::just whimpers a little, gripping the side of the boat, hard, and looking at the man (who's now stuck in barely waist-deep water)::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks angerly at the man and uses his telekinesis to force him under the water::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::jumps into the water and gose over to the man and takes the gun from him, then lets him back above water before he drowns::

SquirtLaWort: EM: ::jumps back barly missing the hit, points the gun at the man:: Don't move.. or I'll shoot you!
EVIL TWINS1909: :::smirks at Ethan before pulling his arm back to take another swing:::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::leaning over the edge of the moving boat, looking back at them:: Ethan! ::suddenly, the man just outright disappears; Libby falls face-first into the water::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::surprized that the man disapeared at just the right time, turns and runs over to help Libby::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::her eyes are closed, and she's already inhaled some water; when she gets into the air, starts coughing, but doesn't wake::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::places her onto the boat:: Libby! wake up!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is still bleeding a little from her side, onto her soaked dress; slowly opens her eyes, looking at Ethan, scared::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::smiles weakly at her, glad that she didn't drown, then notices the blood on her dress:: Libby..you're.. I've got to get you to a hospital.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::trembling:: It hurts, Ethan...I'm going to die...I...love you anyway, even if it's wrong...
YarnKittymon: : ::her wound doesn't seem that bad; the bleeding's pretty slight::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::holds her:: It's okay you're not going to die, I pomise.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::is still trembling, with cold and fear::
YarnKittymon: : ::they get to the exit of the ride--by now the park is being evacuated, and there's one worker to show everyone out of the park; he just looks astonished at the passengers::

YarnKittymon: LB: ::murmurs:: Alex...
SquirtLaWort: EM: What about Alex, ::follows all the poeple towards the exit::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: He did...something; I can feel it...
YarnKittymon: : ::the hairs on Libby's arms are sticking straight up, and most the running people's clothes crackle with static electricity::

YarnKittymon: LB: ::murmurs:: Blood on your shirt...
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a couple ambulances that pull up just a minute after they get to the entrance--just a short distance away from the Freak Show::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks down at his shirt:: It's okay.. ::see the ambulances:: Look, here's some ambulaces, your going to be fine. I told you.
YarnKittymon: LB: That's what they told Rudy...::sits up and manages to put her lips on Ethan's cheek::
SquirtLaWort: ((who's Rudy?))
YarnKittymon: ((Valentino, though Ethan probably hasn't heard Libby ranting about him at least ^_^; Whether he'd put the two together (he died about two years "ago") is up to you))
YarnKittymon: ((Libby had more than a small crush on Rudolph Valentino))

SquirtLaWort: EM: She got shot, but she's going to be okay.. I think
YarnKittymon: : ::when they get a better look at Libby's wound, they keep her outside of the ambulance, and start cleaning it up right there on the street::
JopDance: jm: Will she be all right? Who shot her?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Libby told me some guy shot Serena.. So she followed him and he shot her as well. ::shakes his head:: just when I had him he disapeared.
YarnKittymon: : ::a doctor and a couple nurses just work on Libby for a little while, amid staring passers-by, who the police try (and fail) to contain::
JopDance: jm: That's terrible. I hope he's found.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::sighs:: Yeah I hope so. Do you know where the other are? I want to know if Serena is alright.
JopDance: jm: ::shakes her head:: They all went to the park. What happened to Serena? Did they shoot her too?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Yeah I just told you the guy who shot Libby shot Serena earlier.
YarnKittymon: : ::the doctor finally approaches Ethan:: Are you her husband?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks down:: No.
YarnKittymon: : Boyfriend?
JopDance: jm: I'm sorry, I guess I wasn't listening. ::looks at ambulence quietly::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks embarssed and feels a bit ashamed:: Yes, I suppose you could say that.
YarnKittymon: : Close enough. If she stays off her feet for the next few days, she should be fine. She doesn't seem to have lost much blood, but she's pretty weak, for some reason.
SquirtLaWort: EM: Thank you doctor. ::smiles and turns to Jasmine:: Libby's going to be okay.
JopDance: jm: ::smiles:: I heard.
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::goes over to Libby:: Come on I'm going to take you home, you don't need to go to the hospital.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up at Ethan softly:: I'd marry you...if I could...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::takes her over to the Freak Show dosen't say anything::
JopDance: jm: Do you want anything? I could bring you something.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: No...I feel so weak...
JopDance: jm: Well then...you should rest.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::tries to sit up:: Everyone must be in trouble!
JopDance: jm: ::gently pushes her back down:: In trouble? Why?
YarnKittymon: LB: Lightning...Alex was there...
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs:: 'Saw it from here.
JopDance: jm: ::bites lip, unsure of what to do:: What happened? Do you know if Serena's all right?
YarnKittymon: LB: No...I just ran...trying to find him...
JopDance: jm: Find who?
YarnKittymon: LB: Whoever shot her...I should've just tried to help...wouldn't've got killed...shot...
JopDance: jm: ::turns pale:: Killed? ::shakes head:: But you shouldn't be thinking about that now; you should rest.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly, her eyes almost closed:: Tired...made 'im disappear...don't know...how long...
JopDance: jm: ::is worried, but tries to appear calm:: I'm sure everyone's all right; maybe they'll come over here when they're done at the park.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::her eyes closed:: Shoulda...changed my dress...::it's soaked through::
JopDance: jm: ::turns a faint shade of red:: I should have thought of that; where do you keep your clothes?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::more awake:: In the trunks. Never mind; the sheets are all wet already.
JopDance: jm: ::feels useless:: Oh, all right.
YarnKittymon: LB: No...::sits up; gasps at the pain:: I'll use Becky's bed.
JopDance: jm: The doctor said you shouldn't walk.
YarnKittymon: LB: I shouldn't catch my death of cold either! Find me something dry, and you can help me across the room.
JopDance: jm: ::sighs and pulls something for Libby to wear out of the trunk; she holds it for Libby to see:: Will this do?
YarnKittymon: : ::it's a nightgown-type thing, winter clothing::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: Fine. I'm sorry I snapped at you...I'm cold and tired.
JopDance: jm: ::smiles a little:: That's ok; do you need my help putting it on?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::unbuttons her dress, her fingers trembling:: Not if you're shy to.
JopDance: jm: No, I'm fine. ::walks over with the night gown::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::her dress is cut through on one of the sides, so the doctor could sew up the wound and put gauze over it--she gets out of her dress and into her nightgown with Jasmine's help::
JopDance: jm: ::helps her to Becky's bed::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: Thank you...you can go home...don't have to be bored here...
JopDance: jm: I'm not borerd and I want to be sure you're all right.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::half-smiles:: I've never done anything so nice for you....tried to buy you a drink is all...

(and then Jasmine said something really neat about that being payment enough but somehow I didn't save the rest of their conversation ^^; No great confessions were lost, at any rate. Sorry. -_- )
