part 4

YarnKittymon: DL: ::just watches Maeve leave, wanting with all his heart to explain it all to her, but fearing the consequences::
SP00KY One: MV: :::heads down the stairs but has no intention of leaving until she finds out what they are hiding in this house:::
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::knocks on the door of the madison house, he can't remeber what if it was two hours ago he was suppose to show up or two hours ahead::
SP00KY One: MV: :::grumbles to herself::: You don't want to tell me, fine, I'll just find out on my own. :::trips down a few steps but catches herself by grabbing onto the railing:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the butler answers the door, bowing slightly to Clay:: Mister Quinn is in his bedroom. Shall I tell him you're here, Mister Fisher?
SquirtLaWort: CF: Yes, I hope I'm not late.
YarnKittymon: : ::the butler looks at Clay indifferently:: He just got in a few minutes ago. Do come in. ::escorts Clay to the sitting room; they can see the stairs from there, so they get a nice little show of Maeve nearly falling::
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::stops himself from laughing at Maeve:: Are you okay?
SP00KY One: MV: ::nods, looking around::: Umm. Yes. Thank you. :::smiles brightly, justing standing there, waiting for them to enter the sitting room.:::
YarnKittymon: MG: ::a rather old, skinny, tired-looking woman is still sitting on the sofa; looks up at Maeve:: Thank heavens I don't keep vases on the stair railing.
SP00KY One: MV: :::makes a funny face but stays where she is::::
JopDance: ti: ::quietly enters: his suit looks rumpled, but it doesn't look as if it's suffered any permanent damage::
YarnKittymon: MG: ::looks back at Clay:: Who might you be?
YarnKittymon: : ::the butler goes up to get Donald, stepping around Maeve::
SquirtLaWort: CF: I'm Clay Fisher, I'm here to see Donald.
SP00KY One: MV: ::walks down the stair slowly, hoping they wont notice her as she continues her inspection of the house:::
YarnKittymon: MG: ::groans softly:: He has odd taste in companions. It will be a wonder if he delivers what he promised. ::shoots a piercing glance at Tony; it's clear she doesn't think much of him either::
JopDance: ti: ::smiles in return::
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::rolls his eyes, he can't stand stuck up old women::
YarnKittymon: MG: ::looks back at Maeve, pretty displeased:: Someone go restrain that ruffian before she burns the house down!
SP00KY One: MV: :::her eyes go wide and she freezes:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the butler looks at Clay and Tony, obviously thinking it's their business, not his::
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::snickers looking at Maeve:: Just how could she be a ruffian?
JopDance: ti: ::laughs and approaches Maeve; he looks as if he's going to try to grab her::
SP00KY One: MV: :::her eyes narrow and she puts her hands on her hips::: First off, no one is restraining me. And I could have burned this place down a long time ago. But it would take the mystery it holds with it. :::backs up away from him:: Don't you even think about it
YarnKittymon: MG: ::looks up sharply at Maeve:: I'm beginning to think hiring your beau was a mistake!
JopDance: ti: ::stops at the mention of fire:: Well if you're going to be like that.
SP00KY One: MV: :::smirks::: I am beginning to think him working for you is a mistake
YarnKittymon: MG: It was his decision.
SP00KY One: MV: A bad one obviously. :::looks suspiciously at the two men.::: I smell a rat. And I don't mean the one that *should* be dead up there.
YarnKittymon: MG: ::eyes widen, then narrow again:: What has he told you?
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::smirks:: poor old lady she must be losing it.
YarnKittymon: MG: ::glares back at Clay:: Quiet!
YarnKittymon: MG: ::looks back at Maeve coldly::
SP00KY One: MV: :::mocking her::: Nothing, anyway if he did tell me I probably wouldn't understand since I am just a poor uneducated woman.
YarnKittymon: MG: You know *something.* Donald will answer for it.
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::looks at his watch, getting tired of the two women bickering::
JopDance: ti: ::growing bored:: Where *is* Donald anyway? We need to talk.
SP00KY One: MV: He didn't say anything. I went wondering around and found the rat. I must say I am quite curious as to why a burnt rat is still alive.
YarnKittymon: MG: ::to the men:: In his bedroom. ::pauses:: Perhaps all three of you should have a talk with him. And tell Donald it's rude to upset an old lady.
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::to tony:: well he is taking his time should we just go up there?
SP00KY One: MV: ::looks suprised, figuring they would be throwing her out::::
JopDance: ti: ::shrugs:: That's what I'm doing. ::heads up stares, brushing rudely by Maeve::
SP00KY One: MV: ::stumbles backwards::: Hey! Watch it buddy. :::follows him up the stairs::::
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::follows Tony up taking no notice of Maeve::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::is sitting at his desk in his bedroom, staring blankly at the wall ahead of him; the door is open::
JopDance: ti: ::walks in without knocking:: I've found her!
YarnKittymon: DL: ::tiredly:: Her who? ::pauses:: Oh. Your woman?
JopDance: ti: Yea and she's perfect.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::sounding a bit frustrated:: Are you sure?
JopDance: ti: ::grins:: Sure I'm sure. So when does this thing start? You still want me to be a doctor?
SP00KY One: MV: :::standing against the door listening:::
YarnKittymon: DL: Yes. Tomorrow morning.
JopDance: ti: I'll just have to get this thing cleaned first. ::tugs at his wrinkled suit::
YarnKittymon: DL: Does it need washed, or just ironed?
JopDance: ti: A little of both I think.
YarnKittymon: DL: Well, hurry and change out of it, then; we'll have to go wake one of the maids.
SquirtLaWort: CF: Go now?
YarnKittymon: DL: ::looks at the doorway, rather startled:: Pardon me?
JopDance: ti: ::walks off to change::
SquirtLaWort: CF: Oh sorry, I just followed tony in.
SP00KY One: MV: :::peeks around the corner::: Whats happening tomorrow that you need a perfect woman and a doctor? planning on burnning yourselves to a crisp and coming back to life... :::trails off then quietly:: like that rat. :::looks shocked:::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::looks at Maeve, struck speechless::
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::looks at Maeve and then at Donald, wondering if he should do something::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::finally, very quietly:: Just walk away, Maeve, like you don't know a thing.
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks a little dazed and doesn't move::: You didn't really find a fountain of youth :::shakes her head::: It's not possible.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::shrugs:: Ask Clay and Tony.
JopDance: ti: ::comes back wearing boxers and a t-shirt::
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks at Tony and Clay expectantly::: Is it Donald's fountain of youth or a new way to raise the dead?
YarnKittymon: DL: ::just blushes upon seeing Tony::
SP00KY One: MV: :::sees Tony and then quickly looks away, also turning red:::
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::laughs at Tony::
JopDance: ti: Don't worry I shook a maid up...what's so funny?
SP00KY One: MV: What? Am I invisible?
JopDance: ti: ::looks at Maeve:: Huh?
SquirtLaWort: CF: you, walking around in your skinnies in frount of everyone.
SP00KY One: MV: :::turns to look at him but quickly turns away again, obviously uncomfortable:::
JopDance: ti: ::frowns:: What? Everything's covered up.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::gets up and pulls a robe from his closet; hands it to Tony; rather sarcastically:: I wouldn't want Maeve to fall for *you.*
SP00KY One: MV: ::glares at Donald:::
JopDance: ti: ::smiles and pulls it on:: Yea I guess you're right.
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks over at Tony::: Oh please, don't flatter yourself.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::looks back at Maeve:: I'm serious. If you find out any more, you'll be in on it. And I'm not sure you want that.
SP00KY One: MV: :::bites her lip, not sure what to do:::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::quietly:: Don't you think I want to tell you everything? But Mrs. Madison can be dangerous.
SP00KY One: MV: Then why are you involved with her? :::shakes her head::: I thought I knew you but now it appears that you are up to no good with :::points to Tony and Clay:: these goons.
JopDance: ti: Hey, watch your mouth, lady.
SP00KY One: MV: :::glares at Tony::: And if I don't? What are you going to do about it?
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::smiles:: Well it might be better for you to not know.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::finally:: Yes, we've found a fountain of youth of sorts, and soon you'll have a chance to "drink" from it, if you like. And I desperately hope you will, even if you're angry with me.
SP00KY One: MV: :::shakes her head::: I don't want to live forever. I can't imagine why anyone would want to.
YarnKittymon: DL: Because heaven is a fairy tale?
SP00KY One: MV: And hell on earth? What of that? Watching everything around you die while you continue to go on? Decade after decade?
YarnKittymon: DL: ::softly:: If I had you by my side, I wouldn't care about the rest of the world.
SP00KY One: MV: And if I refused? Then what would you do? Live alone and eventually have to hide yourself away from the world because sooner or later someone will figure out that you should have aged and died a long time ago. In the end you still become nothing
YarnKittymon: DL: We could travel, Maeve. Spend ten years in France, ten in Japan, perhaps...no one would ever find out.
YarnKittymon: : ::the rat seems to have made it out of its cage again; it scampers over to Tony and Clay, sniffing curiously::
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks at him skeptically::: Maybe so. But what happens if you get hit by lightning in some freak accident and :::points towards the rat::: end up looking like that. Then people would get suspicious.
JopDance: ti: ::notices the rat and tries to pick it up::
YarnKittymon: DL: I'd rather that, than be nothing. Nothing, Maeve...doesn't that frighten you?
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::looks at the rat wondering if it would be difficult living forever::
YarnKittymon: : ::the rat sniffs at Tony's fingers before letting the man pick him up; he's quite tame::
SP00KY One: MV: :::shrugs::: I don't believe that we become nothing.
JopDance: ti: ::smiles:: He's kinda cute for a rat.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::after a moment:: Even if we don't become nothing, there's not a religion in the world that says I'd be headed somewhere better than I'm at right now.
YarnKittymon: : ::the rat looks up at Tony, squeaking, then tries to run up his arm::
SP00KY One: MV: It doesn't matter. I just want to see my parents again. I can't do that unless I die one day. I'm not entirely convinced that living here is such a wonderful thing.
ti: Hey! Stop that! ::starts to squirm::
SquirtLaWort: CF: Life's just what you make it you know.
YarnKittymon: : ::the rat stops, digging its claws into Tony's robe to keep from falling::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::softly:: I haven't done a thing that's made you happy, have I?
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks to clay::: What are you two here for? You want to live forever? Why?
SP00KY One: MV: :::reaches over and squeezes donalds hand::: Of course you have. I don't always show it but... you've always been there when I needed you. After four years on my own you have no idea the kind of comfort you have brought.
SquirtLaWort: CF: Oh course I want to live forever, I want to see the future I want to experiance everthing! I can't do that in this short life.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::squeezes Maeve's hand back, tightly::
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods::: Yeah. Thats true. But I don't know if I could take watching everyone around me die again.
JopDance: ti: ::picks the rat up and holds it in his hand:: I don't want to be old....
YarnKittymon: : ::the rat squeaks, sniffing the air::
JopDance: ti: Here, you take it. ::hands the rat to Clay::
SquirtLaWort: CF: I don't want it ::takes it to Donald:: Here, it's your rat.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::takes the rat with his free hand, looking down at it:: *It* doesn't look unhappy, does it?
SquirtLaWort: CF: I couldn't tell.
SP00KY One: MV: :::smirks:: Ask him a hundred years from now.
SquirtLaWort: CF: You know that rat could learn a lot of thing in a hundred years.
SP00KY One: MV: Are you planning on handing this out to the public?
YarnKittymon: DL: It's nothing simple, Maeve. The kind of experiment that probably couldn't be easily replicated.
SP00KY One: MV: So its something you got to work on a rat? Haven't tested it on humans and if you do pull it off you only get one chance? How do you know if it worked?
YarnKittymon: DL: ::yawns:: It will work, Maeve. Think on it.
SP00KY One: MV: :::whispers softly::: I might care for you Donald, but not enough to leave my twin behind.
YarnKittymon: DL: She could become immortal too.
SP00KY One: MV: Or Alex for that matter.
SP00KY One: MV: and Uncle Fox. Even though he can be a little irritating now and then
YarnKittymon: DL: Hmph. Your uncle thinks nothing of moving to Europe without you.
SP00KY One: MV: :::narrows her eyes at him::: What? How did you know about that!? :::tries to think back to see if she mentioned it:::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::rather flatly:: I know a lot of things, Maeve. You'll understand soon enough.
SquirtLaWort: CF: ::looks at his watch and remembers he has to be somewhere:: Donald, sorry to interupt but I have to leave.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::sounding rather irritated:: You'll be back tomorrow morning, right? Bring that woman you chose if you like.
SP00KY One: MV: Does this woman want to live forever also?
SquirtLaWort: CF: Don't worry I'll be back. ::to Maeve:: yes she does! even if everyone dies around me she wont, as long as I have her I'll be happy.
SP00KY One: MV: ::mutters::: You think that now. Nothing lasts forever.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::quietly, sounding rather sad:: Good night, Clay.
SquirtLaWort: CF: Good night. ::walks out the door::
SP00KY One: MV: I better get going too. They will wonder where I have been.
YarnKittymon: DL: ::quietly, not caring that Tony's there:: I love you, Maeve. If you were in danger, I'd trade my life for yours.
SP00KY One: MV: :::whispers::: I know. but I wonder if your life is your own or if you haven't sold it to the devil.
JopDance: ti: ::groans and mumbles:: I'm going to bed...::walks out::
YarnKittymon: DL: : :watches Tony go, frowning, then looks back at Maeve:: Maybe. I don't know.
SP00KY One: MV: ::::nods and quietly walks out of the room:::
YarnKittymon: DL: ::watches her go, again, feeling that he should stop her, but not going to do so:
