~Tuesday, July 10, 1928~

YarnKittymon : : ::it's a little hard to get into the Freak Show building, as there's quite a bit of scrap lumber littered about::
YarnKittymon : : ::mostly on the inside::
SP00KY One : MV: :::opens the door to the freak show and peeks in::: Hello! anyone here?
YarnKittymon : DN: ::mrrs, though Maeve can't see him for the lumber:: I have sawdust in my fur.
JopDance : jm: ::follows Maeve in:: Now what's going on?
SP00KY One : MV: :::makes her way around the lumber::: Hello Daniel! Where are you? :::she goes to step over a pile but her back foot gets caught and she stumbles:::
Quantum Catz : BM: ::from the stage:: You'll be lucky if you find anyone in all this
YarnKittymon : DN: I can hear you but I can't see you. Did you fall?
Quantum Catz : BM: Not without breaking something anyway
SP00KY One : MV: :::she lands with her hands braced out in front of her, a nice sized gash in her right leg::: Ouch, of course, what else is new. :::stands up and brushes the saw dust off of her::::
JopDance : jm: Are you all right, Maeve? ::comes forward::
YarnKittymon : DN: ::mrrs, trying to make his way through the maze of scrap wood::
SP00KY One : MV: :::smiles at her::: I'm fine, just a small cut.
JopDance : jm: ::looks around:: I guess this is all for the play?
YarnKittymon : DN: ::finally makes it to Maeve; he looks a fright, with all the sawdust all over his fur; he looks rather like he's been sleeping in the stuff:: It's a big cut.
SP00KY One : MV: Where is Libby at? Buried at the bottom of all this?
SP00KY One : MV: :::looks down and shrugs::: I'll live.
JopDance : jm: Be careful not to get sawdust in it. That stings.
YarnKittymon : DN: I dunno where Libby is.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::teleports over to the others:: Oh, she's about somewhere.
YarnKittymon : DN: ::sniffs:: I don't smell her.
Hgriffithk : ER: :calls from the door:: He-llooo?
YarnKittymon :
DN: ::mrrs:: Don't fall!
Quantum Catz : BM: ::sighs:: I'll find Libby ::teleports away to look for her::
Hgriffithk : ER: ::carefully picks her way through to the others::
JopDance : jm: Hi Erin.
SP00KY One : MV: Hello
YarnKittymon : : ::Libby is nowhere to be found in the present, though if Becky's not concentrating on staying in the current time, she would probably find her::
Hgriffithk : ER: Heya
Quantum Catz
: BM: ::reappears only a few seconds after vanishing:: Maybe she isn't here after all - i think she might've done one of her vanishing acts into the future
JopDance : jm: ::sits on a pile of lumber:: Do you think she left on purpose?
YarnKittymon : DN: ::mrrs:: She said she'd brush my fur.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::sarcastically:: Yeah, to avoid sorting out this mess
SP00KY One : MV: :::tries to brush some of the saw dust off Daniel:: I'm sorry Daniel, that doesnt look to comfortable.
YarnKittymon : DN: It tastes really bad. ::grimaces::
JopDance : jm: ::grins:: Sounds like a good idea to me. Do you think we should try to find her? I'd like to see the future.
Quantum Catz : BM: Knowing her powers for all we know all she's done is jump ahead a couple of hours
YarnKittymon : : ::there's a knock at the half-open door::
SP00KY One : MV: :::turns to look at the door:::
YarnKittymon : DL: ::is standing in the doorway:: Good morning, everyone. ::looks at the mess all across the floor, but doesn't comment::
SP00KY One : MV: Hello Donald! :::gives him a little wave:::
Quantum Catz : BM: ::doesn't look too happy about Donald being there::
JopDance : jm: ::doesn't know Donald, so doesn't say anything. She notices that everyone else seems to know him, though::
YarnKittymon : DL: ::smiles widely at Maeve; glances at the others, though it's pretty obvious he's only talking to one of them:: How are you doing?
SP00KY One : MV: :::smiles::: I'm fine thanks, How are you?
YarnKittymon : DL: Quite well. Are you working on a set?
YarnKittymon : DN: ::mrrs, rubbing sawdust from his forehead onto Jasmine's knee::
SP00KY One : MV: :::nods::: I guess we are, Libby disappeared on us so we dont know for sure.
JopDance : jm: ::sympathetically:: This stuff really bothers you, doesn't it? Isn't there any place around here that isn't covered in it?
YarnKittymon : DL: Well, perhaps I can help?
YarnKittymon : DN: ::looks up at Jasmine pathetically::
SP00KY One : MV: Help with what? Finding Libby or working on the set?
YarnKittymon : DL: ::smiles, then instantly sobers:: No. Not Libby. The set.
SP00KY One : MV: Oh. well in order to do that we need to find Libby first.
JopDance : jm: ::smiles:: Don't look so sad, Daniel.
YarnKittymon : DN: ::tail flicks::
YarnKittymon : DL: Well, where did she go? ::pauses, looking at Jasmine::
SP00KY One : MV: :::shrugs and looks at Becky:::
JopDance : jm: ::shrugs: I don't know, Becky thinks she might have gone to the future.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::shrugs:: It's not like the same thing hasn't happened to the rest of us at one time or another
YarnKittymon : DL: ::still looking at Jasmine:: Um, I don't think we've properly met. Have we?
SP00KY One : MV: yes, but what if she is stuck there and cant get back because she cant get her powers to work right?
JopDance : jm: No, I don't think we have. ::stands and extends her hand:: Hi, I'm Jasmine.
Quantum Catz : BM: When it happens to us we just jump ahead to later in the day, there's no real chance of getting *stuck* anywhere
SP00KY One : MV: Oh, :::sits down::: Then I guess we just sit here and wait for it to reach the hour that she is in?
Hgriffithk : ER: Or days. Or weeks.
SP00KY One
: MV: :::frowns::: Ok, I'm not waiting that long....
Quantum Catz : BM: ::sighs:: Fine, i'll go ask her what she wants us to do then. At least when she gets back the set'll be sorted
YarnKittymon : DL: ::holds out his hand:: Donald Quinn. Pleased to meet you. ::glances back at Maeve, then Becky, quizically::
JopDance : jm: Likewise. ::grins to Becky:: Maybe you can skip us ahead to when this set is completed while you're at it.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::looks over at Donald and then teleports again, this time looking further ahead in time for Libby::
YarnKittymon : LB: ::is kneeling by her bed, her elbows on the mattress, looking blankly at the wall::
Quantum Catz : BM: ::appears behind Libby:: Uh, hi
YarnKittymon : LB: ::looks back at Becky; softly:: I thought you were asleep.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::looks around:: I probably am right now. I...sorta teleported from the past cos you disappeared before we were gonna build the set...and the others wanted to know what you wanted done
YarnKittymon : DL: ::looks at Jasmine, smirking:: Maybe not.
YarnKittymon : LB: ::looks at her blankly:: I thought you'd found the sketches, since so much was done when I came back...
JopDance : jm: ::sighs and sits::: Oh well. I guess we could get some work done while we wait, but I don't know what we're supposed to be doing.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::chuckles:: Find sketches? In that mess?
SP00KY One : MV: :::gets up and starts exploring:::
YarnKittymon : DL: ::carefully makes his way through the lumber:: Well, here's a saw...
YarnKittymon : LB: They're on the left side of the stage. I suppose a piece of wood may ha ve fallen on top of them.
JopDance : jm: All right, you two get to work. Me and Daniel can supervise. ::with a wink to Daniel:: Right, Daniel?
Quantum Catz : BM: ::smiles:: Okay. Anything else we'll need to know about building the stuff?
YarnKittymon : DN: ::licks his paw, grimacing:: Maybe I'll wait in the stands.
YarnKittymon : LB: ::pauses:: There was a little blood on one of the pieces; are you okay?
Quantum Catz : BM: Oh, that was Maeve, she tripped when she was looking for Dan
YarnKittymon : LB: ::sighs:: Good.
YarnKittymon : ((Wow, that came out sounding mean!))
SP00KY One : ((yes it did))
YarnKittymon : LB: But she's all right?
Quantum Catz : BM: Yeah, it was just a cut
YarnKittymon : LB: ::softly:: Well, tell her to be more careful.
JopDance : jm: That's the best place to supervise. You'll have a good view.
SP00KY One : MV: Yay! A saw, lets just randomely start cutting boards in odd shapes.
JopDance : jm: And you'll be out of the way of this sawdust.
YarnKittymon : DN: ::nods:: That's what I thought!
SP00KY One : MV: :::continues to look around::: Great minds think alike
Quantum Catz : BM: Didn't we tell you about all this when you got back anyway?
YarnKittymon : LB: ::shakes her head:: When I got back you and Daniel were asleep, and everyone else had gone.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::shrugs:: Guess we worked hard then. I'd better get back and get started
Hgriffithk : ER: ::has been looking all around for some sort of instructions. pulls out some sheets of paper from under some wood and shakes the dust from them:: Maeve, here. You might find this useful ::hands the sheets over::
YarnKittymon :
LB: ::softly:: Tell them thank you.
Quantum Catz : BM: Sure ::chuckles:: See you when i wake up ::teleports back to the present::
JopDance : jm: ::smiles, to Daniel:: Good thinking.
SP00KY One : MV: :::walks over to Erin and takes the papers from her:::: What do we have here...
Quantum Catz : BM: ::reappears by Maeve:: The sketches telling us what to do most likely
YarnKittymon : : ::they're rough sketches of what to cut out of the wood; there's a couple trees, a wall that needs built, and a courtroom backdrop, among other things::
SP00KY One : MV: Yep, definitely instructions. Where is Libby at?
Quantum Catz : BM: A few hours on from now, like i said she would be. She said to thank you all, since you were gone by the time she got back
YarnKittymon : DL: Well, then we'd best get started. Can someone sketch out the trees so we can saw them out?
SP00KY One : MV: :::sighs::: I am so confused on how that works.
Hgriffithk : ER: Trees? Sure, I'm on it.
YarnKittymon :
DL: When is the show starting?
SP00KY One : MV: In four days? Or did they decide on the 13th?
Quantum Catz : BM: The writer guy didn't want to do it then - dunno if we're going to or not
YarnKittymon : DL: Well, you wouldn't want bad luck.
Hgriffithk : ER: ::scuttles of to find a pencil and gets to work drawing out tree-shapes::
SP00KY One
: MV: :::looks at Donald::: Maybe we should get started on that wall, looks like that will take the longest.
YarnKittymon : DL: On what?
SP00KY One : MV: :::points at the paper::: The wall
YarnKittymon : DL: Right; I guess you'll need a different style of backstage...where's the hammer and nails? I'll need to build a sawhorse.
SP00KY One : MV: :::shrugs::: Probably where the sketches were. :::circles around the pile of boards:::
YarnKittymon : DL: ::spies them:: Is your leg all right?
YarnKittymon : DN: ::mrrs, looking up at Jasmine:: Can you brush me?
SP00KY One : MV: :::looks at him confused::: What?
JopDance : jm: Sure, but I don't happen to have one on me. Do you know where one is?
YarnKittymon : DL: Your leg is bleeding. ::picks up the hammer and nails::
SP00KY One : MV: :::looks down::: Oh that. I had forgotten all about it. Yeah its fine.
YarnKittymon : DN: There's one on Libby's dresser.
YarnKittymon : DL: ::frowns:: Are you sure?
Quantum Catz : BM: ::to jasmine:: i'll go get it ::heads off into the back::
JopDance : jm: ::starts to get it, but pauses:: Are you sure that isn't Libby's brush? I don't want her to yell at me for getting cat hair and sawdust in it.
SP00KY One : MV: :::looks down and frowns::: Well, maybe I should go clean it. :::heads off to the bathroom:::
YarnKittymon : DN: ::tail twitches::
Quantum Catz : BM: ::reemerges with a brush in her hand:: This's the one we normally use on Dan when he needs brushed.
YarnKittymon : DN: ::watches Maeve, then runs off and fetches some bandages; hands them to Maeve, poking in through the bathroom door::
SP00KY One: MV: :::smiles down at him and takes the bandages, she pets him on the head::: Thanks Dan.
JopDance : jm: ::smiles:: Thanks, Becky. ::sits next to Dan and begins brushing::
YarnKittymon : DN: ::mrrs, then goes back to Jasmine::
YarnKittymon : DL: ::looks at Daniel for a moment; mutters:: He's more of a gentleman than I am.
Hgriffithk : ER: ::is concentrating on what's she's doing but isn't entirely unapproachable::
Quantum Catz
: BM: ::heads over to Erin:: Need any help? I'm not much good at drawing but i can find some paint and paint them once ur done
SP00KY One : MV: ::washes out the cut and puts one of the bandages over it:::
JopDance : jm: ::starts brushing Daniel::
Hgriffithk : ER: ::smiles gratefully:: Yeah, I saw some sponges and a bucket by the door. I'll get the paint and you can start sponging the foilage on.
Quantum Catz
: BM: Okay, i'll go get them
Hgriffithk : ER: Thanks. ::gets paint::
SP00KY One
: MV: :::walks back in:::
Hgriffithk : ER: ::instructs Becky throughly (sp?) in the practice of sponge-painting::


YarnKittymon: DN: ::purrs, rubbing hard against the brush::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::to Maeve:: Are you all right?
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods::: Yeah, lets get to work. Where were we?
JopDance: jm: ::continues to brush Daniel::
RGRIFFITHK: Al::enters the freakshow building:: Is Erin here?
YarnKittymon: DL: I was building a sawhorse so we could properly make the scenery.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks around for Erin but she seems to have vanished:: She was here...guess she's gone
YarnKittymon: DL: ::sees Alisha; tenses, looking at her::
SP00KY One: MV: Is there anything that I can help with?
RGRIFFITHK: AL::sees donald then quickly looks down again::
SP00KY One:
MV: :::looks quizzically from Donald to Alisha, wondering what was wrong with them:::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::frowns, looking back at Maeve:: I don't know how they made those trees, but I can't find nails, or even a hammer. Maybe we need to go out...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::notices Alisha's reaction and frowns slightly at Donald but doesn't say anything:: Hey, Alisha. You want to help me paint Erin's drawings?
RGRIFFITHK: AL: ok, that'd b fun ^_^
SP00KY One:
MV: :::nods::: Then we should get going.
RGRIFFITHK: Al::walks over to mave::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::suddenly sits up straight, an ear swiveling towards the back door::
JopDance: jm: ::pauses in her brushing:: What do you hear, Daniel?
SP00KY One: MV: ::looks over at her and smiles::: Hi Alisha
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs:: A scratchy noise. Kinda hurts my ears.
JopDance: jm: ::listens:: I don't hear anything.
YarnKittymon: DN: It's quiet.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::frowns, looking towards the back room where Libby lives::
JopDance: jm: Maybe we should see what it is.
SP00KY One: MV: :::turns around also::: Maybe libby has joined us again. :::heads in that direction:::
Quantum Catz: BM: It can't be Libby - she said she only got back after Dan and i were asleep
YarnKittymon: DN: ::suddenly hisses as Maeve's hand is on the doorknob; they all can hear the low moan of something like a stuck drawer::
Quantum Catz: BM: What is that?
SP00KY One: MV: :::stops for a moment::: I think someone is going through a drawer.
JopDance: jm: ::begins to feel uneasy; stands::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a couple more similar noises::
RGRIFFITHK: Al:: stands bak::
SP00KY One:
MV: Well, we cant just stand here! On the count of three I'm going to open the door, everyone get ready or go hide.
RGRIFFITHK: Al::starts to turn but decides to stay::
Quantum Catz:
BM: Never mind that - i'm not letting anyone raid my things ::teleports to the other side of the door without warning::
SP00KY One: MV: :::pulls the door open::: Wait!
JopDance: jm: ::runs down bleachers to see what's going on::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's two men rummaging through the small chest of drawers Libby has, taking jewelry; they look up in astonishment at Becky, and say a few words that must be some kind of curse, though they're in Russian::
YarnKittymon: DL: Maeve!
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs, dashing after Jasmine::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::snaps:: Get away from Libby's stuff!
SP00KY One: MV: :::enters the room and walks up next to Becky:::: You heard the girl, move it!
RGRIFFITHK: Al::looks sharply at the two men::
YarnKittymon: : ::the nearer man glares at the two of them, and slowly pulls a gun::
SP00KY One: MV: :::her stomach knots at the site of the gun, and she tenses up:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks over at Maeve, not sure what to do::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man shouts at them, in Russian, motioning to the only kind of empty corner in the small room::
SP00KY One: MV: :::standing her ground she tries to intimidate them. She forms a fireball::: Hmm, a fireball against a gun. Who do you think is going to win?
YarnKittymon: : ::Niklaus suddenly appears in their midst, between the gunman and Maeve; the men curse again, in Russian::
JopDance: jm:: watches scene silently::
JoyfulPaladin: NK: Come now let's all be reasonable! :in Russian::
YarnKittymon: : ::Niklaus is in the back room of the Freak Show--Libby and Becky's bedroom--between two large men and most of the Freak Show gang::
YarnKittymon: : ::the farther man says, in Russian:: Call off your freaks!
YarnKittymon: : ::the other man keeps his gun pointed at Maeve, trusting he can fire it before he's hit, if she throws it::
SP00KY One: MV: ::swallows hard and briefly stares at the end of the gun:: Ok, maybe that wasnt such a good idea. :::keeps the fireball handy just in case:::
JoyfulPaladin: NK: ::in Russian:: Come on! Put the gun down! I'm sure this can be settled in a gentlemanly fashion.
YarnKittymon: : ::the far man says, in Russian:: You help us rob them, we'll give you half of it.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::watches the scene helplessly; suddenly grabs Alisha, for want of anything else to do; whispers:: *You* get out of here at least! They'll shoot!
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks back and forth between the men ::: What are you guys discussing?
JoyfulPaladin: NK:: decides to play for time:: Well,I'm not making alot of money as it is...::in Russian::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man with the gun says, quietly, in Russian:: Get the girl with the fireball to stop it, and then we shoot them all. No witnesses.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::rubs up against Jasmine:: They aren't gonna hurt Becky, are they?
RGRIFFITHK: AL:slips out the door VERY QUIETLY::
Quantum Catz:
BM: ::looks back at the others, half wanting to run away and half determined to make sure they don't take any of Libby's things::
JoyfulPaladin: NK:In Russian:: Shoot? But you'd get death for suree!
YarnKittymon: : ::the man with the gun smiles; still in Russian:: No! The freaks tried to kill me! Even immigrants are more loved than the freaks.
JopDance: jm: ::is too intent on the scene to reply, but absently pets Daniel's head::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Niklaus:: What are they saying?
SP00KY One: MV: :::is getting frustrated::: I wish I knew what they were saying.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::stands behind Maeve, watching the argument, more than a little worried; softly:: I'm sorry I didn't bring my gun.
SP00KY One: MV: ::mumbles::: We dont need anymore guns. ::::scenes from the last encounter flash through her mind and she winces:::
JoyfulPaladin: NK:::In Russian:: Well,give me the gun,then. If I'm gonna be a robber I may asd well go all out.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smirks, and turns to point the gun at Niklaus; in Russian:: Tell them all to go to the other room or I shoot you.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::softly, to Jasmine:: Where'd Alisha go?
JoyfulPaladin: NK:: ::puts hands in air:: Gulp! O.K. Everybody into the other room or he shoots! ::in English::
JopDance: jm: ::whispers:: What? ::looks around for her:: I don't know. Maybe she went to get help.
YarnKittymon: : ::the gunman's partner goes back to stealing jewelry::
SP00KY One: MV: What?! :::briefly wonders if she could throw the fireball fast enough but quickly rules that out, she extinguishes it::::
Quantum Catz: BM: No! ::moves towards the man stealing libby's jewelry:: Libby's suffered enough without this too!
YarnKittymon: : ::the man sees Becky and tries to shove her aside::
SP00KY One: MV: :::while their attetion is focused on Becky, she forms another fireball and hurls it at the man's gun::::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::stumbles slightly but doesn't back away::
JoyfulPaladin: NK:Bois mois! :::Moves towards BM and gunmans partner:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man drops the gun, cursing again; he stoops to pick it up, shouting to Niklaus, in Russian:: Stay back!
SP00KY One: MV: :::tackles the gunmen::: Oh no you dont!
RGRIFFITHK: AL::runs in through the bak door with her gloves off and grabs the other mans arm::
YarnKittymon: : ::both of the men fall to the ground; Alisha's is unconscious, but Maeve's struggles::
JoyfulPaladin: NK:In Russian:: HA!
JopDance: jm: ::jumps on gunman with Maeve::
YarnKittymon: : ::before the man can fire the gun, Donald steps on his hand, hard:: Someone take his gun!
SP00KY One: MV: :::grabs for the gun:::
YarnKittymon: : ::enough pressure on the man's wrist makes him release it::
SP00KY One: MV: :::snatches the gun and stands up::: I got it!
RGRIFFITHK: AL::puts loves bak on::
jm: ::keeps a tight hold on the gunman::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::takes his foot off of the man's wrist, frowning, and looking at everyone:: Should we call the police? I'm not sure who would be in more trouble, though I'd try to get you off like Alex...
Quantum Catz: BM: But then libby'd have to be told...
SP00KY One: MV: :::holds the gun out to Donald, her hands shaking::: Here take this thing.
JopDance: jm: Why would we be in trouble? They were the ones trying to rob us.
SP00KY One: MV: We cant just let them go. Although we might want to tie them up before they cause any more trouble.
JoyfulPaladin: NK:: She's been through enough as is. I like tying them up. :::goes for rope:::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::takes the gun, aiming it at the man who's still conscious; glances at Niklaus:: Tell him not to move, in case he doesn't get it.
YarnKittymon: DN: ::comes into the room, looking rather frightened::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::glances at Jasmine, then down:: The city...isn't too fond of all of you right now...
JoyfulPaladin: NK::In Russian:: Stay still. We may not even tewll the law if you behave ypourself.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Donald:: I don't want Libby to know about this - she's been through enough without knowing that people've been coming *here* and threatening us
JopDance: jm: ::lets go of the gunman since DL has a gun pointed towards him and only frowns at Donald's comment::
JoyfulPaladin: NK: :::grabs rope and returns to tie the men up:::
YarnKittymon: DN: ::nuzzles Alisha::
JopDance: jm: We can't just keep them tied up here forever, though.
YarnKittymon: DL: Perhaps they've learned their lesson.
RGRIFFITHK: AL::looks at daniel then strokes his head::
SP00KY One:
MV: And we cant let them go, they were after something and they could just come back which wouldnt be good for libby either.
JopDance: jm: ::rolls her eyes:: I doubt it.
JoyfulPaladin: NK: We could drop them off in an Alley under cover of darkness.
SP00KY One: MV: Or why dont we just drop them in the jail house?
YarnKittymon: DL: ::frowns:: Perhaps. I think I could take care of them...
JopDance: jm: Why would the police arrest them even if they appeared there? Maybe Becky could drop them off some place isolated...like Antarctica.
SP00KY One: MV: We could make it look like they were trying to make a jail break...
Quantum Catz: BM: They'd die in Antarctica
SP00KY One: MV: Your point?
JoyfulPaladin: NK:Hmm...What were they after anyway?
Quantum Catz: BM: I've not yet graduated to the level of cold blooded killer
YarnKittymon: DL: ::picks up the bag the unconscious man dropped:: Just her jewelry, it looks like.
SP00KY One: MV: ::shrugs::: Why dont you ask them? More specifically, why here? What were you discussing with them anyway?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::to Donald:: Give me the jewelry - i'll put it back where it belongs
JoyfulPaladin: NK:I tried to bluff us out,but iIt didn't work. I'll go ask,though I don't expect much cooperation.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::hands it to her silently::
YarnKittymon: : ::the unconscious man groans::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::starts to put the jewelry back in the drawers where it belongs::
JoyfulPaladin: NK: ::goes to concious oneand speaks in Russian while trying to look menacing::So,nothing in your size at the shops?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man frowns:: Lost our jobs. Our children are hungry.
JoyfulPaladin: NK:Then you just chose our friends as easy prey?
SP00KY One: MV: :::she stares intently at Niklaus and the Russian but isnt really paying attention:::
RGRIFFITHK: Al::relises she can understand most of what they are saying::((the russian conversation ^_^))
YarnKittymon: : Went to the pawnshop to sell my wife's ring. Saw your Libby Williamson there; thought she must have more where that came from. ::his pronunciation of Libby's name is heavily accented, but still decipherable even to the people in the room who don't know Russian::
Quantum Catz: BM: What's he saying about Libby?
SP00KY One: MV: :::the mention of Libby's name brings her out of her day dream::: Do they know her?
JoyfulPaladin: NK:I see. Call me a sap,but I think I believe you. :::tells the others the mens story:::
Quantum Catz: BM: And you think it's true?
SP00KY One: MV: I don't. How did they know her name?
JoyfulPaladin: NK:Yes,but mind you I'm a bit gullible. What do you guys think?
YarnKittymon: DL: Her name was in all the English papers; maybe it made it to the Russian ones too. A scoop's a scoop.
SP00KY One: MV: ::puts her hands on her hips::: What was she doing there to make them think she had money? Dont people mostly go to one to pawn something off for extra cash?
YarnKittymon: DL: ::frowns:: I don't know. But she's been there more than once; any observer would conclude she still has items of value left, though not much cash.
JoyfulPaladin: NK:::frowns::: Poor missWilliamson...
SP00KY One: MV: :::shrugs::: Im just saying, I wouldnt see someone in there and automatically assume they have money.
RGRIFFITHK: AL: i really dont know, he seems honest but i dont trust him seeing as he did just break into here and tryed to kill us...
YarnKittymon: DL: Well, you know our options. Let them go, send them off, let me try to deal with them, or take them to the police. I'm willing to try to bribe them.
Quantum Catz: BM: Not the police - we'd have to tell Libby then
JoyfulPaladin: NK:DEowe have anything to bribe them witrh?
YarnKittymon: DL: *I* do.
SP00KY One: MV: :::shakes her head::: They could go back on their word.
YarnKittymon: DL: Then I'll take them, and teach them a lesson they won't soon forget.
SP00KY One: MV: Like what? And how?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates and then looks at Donald:: Who cares? As long as they don't come back
YarnKittymon: DL: They won't. That I'll swear to.
JoyfulPaladin: NK:Sounds good to me.
SP00KY One:
MV: :::is concerned::: I still want to know what you are planning to do and if its *safe* for *you* to do it?
YarnKittymon: DL: ::looks at Maeve, startled, and a little touched:: Keep them captive at Mrs Madison's estate. They're not dangerous without their gun.
SP00KY One: MV: Who is Mrs. Madison? And for how long?
YarnKittymon: DL: As long as we have to. Mrs Madison is an elderly lady I help care for; her children are useless.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: What would you do with them while you had them there?
YarnKittymon: DL: ::softly:: Do you want them taken care of or not?
Quantum Catz: BM: I just don't want them to come back and hurt Libby
SP00KY One: MV: I doubt you could keep them locked up forever. Someone would find out. Why not just teleport them into :::pauses to think:: The police chiefs house and he can arrest them for breaking and entering.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::looks at Becky::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mutters:: I've only ever teleported one person at a time and it wipes me out for ages
YarnKittymon: DL: ::raises his eyebrows:: You can endanger Becky, or you can trust me.
SP00KY One: MV: ::shrugs::: Whatever you two think would work for the best.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::after a moment:: Or I could buy them all train fare to the West. These fellas and their families. I doubt they'd waste the money to come back to New York, and they'd probably find new jobs.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sarcastically:: Nice to hear your concern for my welfare ::looks at Donald:: That sounds better than the other options
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods:::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::glances at Niklaus::
JoyfulPaladin: NK:Yeah,New York isn't for everybody. I wonder whatthe Pacific's like?
YarnKittymon: DL: All right. ::puts the gun into his coat:: Someone untie them and explain what's going on. If they try to run I'll shoot. Niklaus, you'll have to come with me to pick up their families, and to the station.
JoyfulPaladin: NK:Sure. Right behind ya.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::looks at Maeve:: Sorry to leave so suddenly...I'll come by to see you tomorrow, though.
SP00KY One: MV: ::nods::: Thats ok, cant help it with the situation that is at hand. Bye.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly to Donald:: Thank-you...for helping
YarnKittymon: DL: ::nods to her, smiling:: If I can ever be of service, I daresay you can track me down.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs:: Yeah
YarnKittymon: DL: ::escorts the now-half-conscious and the other man out the door, with Niklaus as translator and muscle::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::suddenly looks around:: We'd...we'd better get back to work on all this stuff
YarnKittymon: DN: ::mrrs, shaking a bit of the sawdust out of his fur::
SP00KY One: MV: Yep. Time to figure out how to get this finished in record breaking speed before Libby gets back.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: I'm sure we'll manage
SP00KY One: MV: ::nods in agreement::: We just took down two would be burglers, ::motions to the mess:: This should be a piece of cake.
YarnKittymon: : ::the lock was cleanly picked, and there's really not that much of a mess; just the jewelry, a drawer on the ground, and a few things knocked over from the scuffle::
SP00KY One: ((i meant the set))
YarnKittymon: : ::the bits of set lying around, however, lend the main room the official status of "mess"::
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm sure it'll be easy once we get started ::heads over to the painting she was doing before::
SP00KY One: MV: :::walks out into the main room and picks up where Donald left off:::
