YarnKittymon: LB: ::is sleeping in her own bed--the sheets have dried--conscious, even in her sleep, not to toss and turn too much; she doesn't seem to be dreaming::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::reappears sitting on her bed and sees Libby but doesn't say anything. she looks worried::
EVIL TWINS1909: ::three loud knocks sound on the front door of the freak show and a loud voice yells:::: :Open up, police:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::jerks awake:: What in the...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::turns to stare at the doorway:: That's what i get for running away when i get scared. ::glances at Libby:: What happened? Why're the police here?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::sleepily:: Police? ::sits up, cringing heavily::
EVIL TWINS1909: :::bangs three more times on the door::::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::slowly gets to her feet, gasping in pain:: I'm coming!
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::runs over to help libby:: What happened to you? Are you okay?
YarnKittymon: LB: I was shot yesterday...but *I'm* alive, at least...::gets to the door; opens it; she's still in an old-style nightgown::
EVIL TWINS1909: :::a man dressed in a police men's uniform is standing there with his thumbs stuck in his belt loops, trying to appear important and authoritive::: :I have orders from the chief of police to inform you that your show is to be shut down immediately.:
YarnKittymon: LB: ::just stares, dumbstruck::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the policeman:: Why?
EVIL TWINS1909: :::The man looks down at Becky, a smirk on his face::: Having the lot of you around is dangerous to the public's safety. Recent events have proven that fact.:
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks down, not arguing after what she saw Alex do::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::slowly and quietly:: And if we run the show anyway...?
EVIL TWINS1909: ::he grins::: :Then I will have the pleasure of arresting every last one of you. :::tips his hat::: :Good day ladies.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::just stares blankly; suddenly leans against the wall; softly, looking down at Becky:: It's all my fault, isn't it...?
Quantum Catz: BM: Your fault? How's it your fault?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::walks into the freak show noticing the police man leaving::
YarnKittymon: LB: This is what started it, isn't it? Everyone thinking freaks are dangerous and locking 'em up--where you come from?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Libby?
Quantum Catz: BM: I doubt it started here, Libby. They'd've thought that, with or without this place
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::is out walking around and somehow ends up in front of the freak show. She stands there, wondering if she should go in or not.:::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly, to Becky:: When we met, you thought I must be evil, to start a show like this...
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs, seeing Maeve through the still-open door::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks away:: I was wrong
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::smiles uneasily at Daniel and waves at him, still not sure if she should go in or not.:::
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::feeling awkard that he just walked into the middle of a conversation::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: Perhaps it's better this way...::looks up at Ethan, cringing:: Good day...
SquirtLaWort: EM: I just came by to see how you're doing.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly at Ethan, but doesn't say hello::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: Not very well, but I'm alive...::leans unsteadily to look through the doorway:: Is that Alex's cousin out there?
EVIL TWINS1909: ((oh what? im reduced to being called alex's cousin now? lol))
YarnKittymon: ((She doesn't want to admit she doesn't know which one you are ^_^))
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::turns to look:: Yeah looks like Maeve.
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::waves and takes a few small uneasy steps towards the entrance::: Hi.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates:: Is anyone going to tell me what happend yesterday after i left? Or do i not want to know?
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::says softly::: You don't want to know.
SquirtLaWort: EM: I don't even know all of it and it's really bad.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: I'm so sorry, Maeve...
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::looks at her blankly, trying to fight back the tears::: Sorry for what? You didn't cause any of this. If anything the full blame of yesterday should be put on me.
Quantum Catz: BM: All i saw was Serena dying...and then Alex went mad and i...i got scared and ran away ::looks at the ground::
SquirtLaWort: EM: The only person who is at fault is that guy who shot Serena. Don't blame yourself.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods to Maeve::
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::gulps and looks away::: yes, but that bullet was meant for me.
YarnKittymon: LB: Don't be silly.
SquirtLaWort: EM: What? You're kidding. How do you know it was ment for you?
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::shifts uneasily::: I haven't even told Alex yet, quite frankly I'm scared at how he will react... :::pauses::: The man that shot her was the same man I was running from.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::just looks confused; after a moment, goes to the stage and sits down wearily::
SquirtLaWort: EM: You.. probably shouldn't tell Alex about that.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::turns to look at Libby worriedly::
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: Yeah, thats kind of why I left the house and started walking.... my feet kind of led me here. I dont think things could get much worse.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles weakly at Becky:: I sent the gunman far forward, into the future...I'm still exhausted...wherever he is, he must be an old man, or dead...
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::looks puzzled::: But I killed the...
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::looks at maeve confussed:: killed..?
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::looks a little pale::: Yeah, it was an accident....the gun went off...I didn't mean to.
SquirtLaWort: EM: You killed someone?
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: ::nods her head in the affirmative:::
SquirtLaWort: EM: Who? that guy who shot Serena?
YarnKittymon: LB: Was there more than one?
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::thinks for a minute::: Yeah, now that I remember, back when we had that car accident he did have another man with him. I don't know which one fired the bullet that killed Serena.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Does it matter...if they're both gone now?
SquirtLaWort: EM: ::shakes his head:: This is just crazy..
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: No, that part is over. Now there is only what happens in the aftermath. :::looks at them half expecting them to yell at her to get out:::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: Have they made the...arrangements yet? I'm not sure if I can attend the funeral; the doctor told me to stay off my feet for a few days...
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::looks puzzled and concerned at the same time::: Doctor? what doctor? :::finally notices the bandage on her arm, her heart sinks::: Oh god.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::quickly:: I'm fine. I'm not dead...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Libby:: I'm sorry. I shouldn't've run away when alex started shooting off all that lightning
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::looks ill:::: I'm sorry you had to get hurt also.
SquirtLaWort: EM: I know you feel horrible Maeve but Libby will be okay, you didn't shot her or Serena. I just hope Alex and you and your sister are going to be okay.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the ground, murmurs to herself:: any other place, i'd've been long gone by now ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: It's all right, Maeve...you have no idea how things come into focus, when you think you're about to die...
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: I might not have pulled the trigger but I was the catalist.
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::looks at Libby worriedly::: Was it that close?
YarnKittymon: LB: I'll recover soon, and I can live with losing the show...::looks down:: It wasn't close, I suppose, but I thought it was...
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: What?! Losing the show? How? When?
SquirtLaWort: EM: Was that why the police man was here?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods, then tries to smile bravely:: It wasn't making any money anyway.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at libby:: But before...it was your...your dream, i guess
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: ::frowns:: Just the same, I'm sorry you lost the show. and more sorry for all that has happened. I should probably get back to the house before they send out a search party. If you need anything, let us know.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up at Maeve sadly:: You too--you're suffering a hundred times more than I.
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: ::gives her a watery smile::: Alex takes the cake on this one.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::wipes her eyes:: Let us know when you have the arrangements made...
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: :::nods::: i will, take care. :::pats Daniel on the head before walking out the door:::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::nuzzles Maeve back::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs:: Bye Maeve
EVIL TWINS1909: MV: ::smiles back at them::: Bye
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks at Becky silently::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks back at Libby:: You sure you're okay?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: I'm alive....what else can I ask for?
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't know...
YarnKittymon: LB: It was a foolish dream.
Quantum Catz: BM: Just cos it didn't work out like you wanted, doesn't make it foolish
YarnKittymon: LB: To parade around like circus animals...only a fool couldn't see how it would come to this...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: I remember we had an argument like this before...cept it went the other way round
YarnKittymon: LB: I should've listened. ::smiles weakly at Becky:: Though if it weren't for Serena, I'd not wish to take it back.
Quantum Catz: BM: Serena wasn't your fault. People with powers like Alex and Maeve...they tend to end up in dangerous situations
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: At least it's over...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs:: Yeah
YarnKittymon: LB: ::very softly:: I'm glad you're here, Becky.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly: I'm glad you're okay. I should've stayed with you yesterday instead of running
YarnKittymon: LB: ::softly:: She was laying on the ground, bleeding, and all I did was run to try to find whoever did it...
Quantum Catz: BM: It was a braver reaction than mine
YarnKittymon: LB: Probably didn't do any more good, though. Anyway, I'm just glad you came back...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: So what're we going to do now, with no show?
YarnKittymon: LB: I'm just going to focus on getting well for now.
YarnKittymon: LB: But in a few days I'll see if I can rent the place out to any acts passing through--bands or the like, no freak shows, of course.
YarnKittymon: LB: The building's paid through the summer, so anything we make is ours to keep.
Quantum Catz: BM: It'll work out somehow
YarnKittymon: LB: It'll give me time to figure out what I'm going to do with myself for the rest of my life, anyway.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Yeah
