Maeve Owens: LU: ::She's standing there in his
door way with her expressive green eyes casted down at the floor.
Her hands are clasped tightly in front of her. When she brings
her eyes to meet his, theres fear swimming in their depths.::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns, glancing at Lu, then looking at the ground:: Hey. How you doing?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::she nods, her smile a bit shaky:: I know I wasn't suppose to visit for a while but I felt you needed to know... ::she takes a deep breath before letting it out, her eyes pleading with him to understand:: Can I come in?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::steps back, a touch of concern in his voice:: Yeah, sure. Are you OK?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::she nods again, doing her best to look nervous:: Yes... Has your girlfriend come back yet? ::she glances around casually::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head, frowning:: I doubt she'll be gone too much longer, though.
Maeve Owens: LU: Oh. Well then... you might want to sit down.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks back at Lu, his frown deepening; doesn't sit:: What's *wrong*?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::she looks at him with all the fear she can muster, yet her eyes show a bit of happiness and she lets her lips curve up in a slight smile as she says the words:: I'm pregnant.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::stares at her blankly for a full thirty seconds, then laughs once, rather weakly:: You're kidding, right?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::she shakes her head, her forehead wrinkling the worry:: I'm sorry. I didn't mean for it to happen but it did. I'll raise it on my own if you want... I don't know how since mom will surely kick me out of the house wants she lea
Maeve Owens: rns of it... ::her voice break on a sob and she covers her face with her hands::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quickly:: Don't cry...it's just...I don't see how it could've happened...I mean...I used protection...thre's no way...
Maeve Owens: LU: ::she looks back up at him, wiping the salty tears from her eyes:: Well you're protection wasn't full proof I guess because it indeed happened. The rabbit died.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::now rather pale; softly:: There wasn't...anyone else?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::looks quite insulted:: Of course not! There hasn't been anyone for a long time. You weren't the only one feeling lonely. ::she goes back to looking at her feet, sniffing occasionally::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sinks down into a chair, silently, with the same expression on his face as someone who'd seen a ghost::
Maeve Owens: LU: ::she approaches him carefully, kneeling down next to him:: What are we going to do?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::very slowly:: Don't worry about it. I've got plenty of money...
Maeve Owens: LU: ::shakes her head; sadly:: I don't want you to have to feel obligated... if you dont ::her voice braking:: want us... I'm sure I can find some place for us to go. Eventually...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes a deep breath; softly, not looking at Lu:: What if she comes back?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::her eyes grow cold and she backs away:: I could understand how you might not want me... but you're just going to abondone a *child* for some woman who left you and is *not* coming back? I dont want your money if your not willi
Maeve Owens: ng to own up to your responsibility. I thought you were different.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::cringes; looks up at Lu, then back at the floor; after a rather long pause:: I don't want to have a big ceremony or anything.
Maeve Owens: LU: ::folds her arms over her chest, glaring at him:: Gee, dont let me strong hold you into a marriage or anything. You aren't the only one hurting here you know, you sefl absorbed... ::sighs, turning around, breathing hard she f
Maeve Owens: orces more tears to well up::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::stands up, slowly exhaling:: I *want* the kid, Lu. If you don't you can just go off and have it in private and then leave it on my doorstep. I don't care what anyone thinks.
Maeve Owens: LU: ::turns around, the tears now gliding down her cheeks:: What makes you think I dont want it? Of course I do... I promised myself I wouldn't but I fell hard for you Toby, and it hurts that you wont even try... to return the feelings.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Don't cry, Lu...it's my fault and I'm going to do what I can to make it right.
Maeve Owens: LU: ::she nods, wrapping her arms around herself but the tears dont cease:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::steps nearer to Lu, putting a hand on her shoulder:: I promise we'll get through this, Lu.
Maeve Owens: LU: ::weakly:: Hold me. Please? ::she looks up at him with all the love and adoration she can, letting him know just how much she needs him::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::puts his arms around Lu without hesitation, drawing her close::
Maeve Owens: LU: ::snuggles into his embrace, her tears drying up almost instantly, although he cant see that. For effect she sniffes now and then but theres a slight smile playing across her face::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::just hugs her, not speaking::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::after a while, still holding Lu:: I want you to see the doctor in town.
Maeve Owens: LU: ::pulls away, frowning:: Why? I've already seen the one back home. You still dont believe me?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head quickly:: No; to make sure everything's OK.
Maeve Owens: LU: ::nods:: Everythings fine.... I just saw Doc Holden two days before I came. ::she almost whines and she looks up at him pleading for sympathy:: Do I have to go get poked and prodded again so soon?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns:: Maybe another week from now.
Maeve Owens: LU: ::sighs:: If I must... I guess. If I'm here... I mean I guess I still have a while before mom gets suspicious.
YarnKittymon: TY: She won't be if you just deliver a few weeks early, right?
Maeve Owens: LU: I meant before she notices I'm pregnant and without a husband...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: That's what I'm saying. If we get married in a couple days, maybe everyone'd think you just had the baby early.
Maeve Owens: LU: ::weakly:: Are you okay with that? I mean... are you going to hate me?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nearly smiles:: I can't promise I'll love you right off, but I won't hate you.
Maeve Owens: LU: I guess thats all I can hope for then. I promise I'll make a good wife. ::with a small secretive smile she replies soflty:: I've already proven I can take care of you haven't I?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is thinking about how much he wishes she hadn't; softly:: Where do you want to get...::the meaning of the word hits him again and it almost dies on his lips::...married?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::smiles:: I always thought I'd get married out on the ranch, right by momma's rose gardens. ::shrugs:: but if you dont want to make a big deal out of it...
YarnKittymon: TY: That's fine, as long as we slip off...I don't want anyone here showing up. ::shakes his head:: You wanna get going?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::nods:: If thats what you want.
YarnKittymon: TY: But you won't mind living here in Marquis?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::smiles:: I don't care where I'm at. As long as you're there and our child is happy and has both of his parents.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods:: I'm ready, then, unless you want to stop by ::cringes:: Becky's house and pack some food.
Maeve Owens: LU: ::sadly:: I'd rather not... go there but if we must I guess we should go ahead and get it over with. ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: TY: No; don't worry about it. We'll stop at another town. Do you think my bike will spook your horse? You rode here, right?
Maeve Owens: LU: Actually I brought the buggy with me.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, putting his hands in his pockets:: Let's go, then.
Maeve Owens: LU: ::nods, trying not to appear to happy::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::in a rather quiet voice:: Do you...need me to make you a dress?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::shakes her head:: No... I kind of already have one. ::sadly:: That is if you dont mind me wearing a dress intended for another wedding that never took place.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::a little surprised:: What happened?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::she glances down; softly:: He went to the states to...um... secure a future for us... or so he said. ::she took a deep breath to gather her thoughts, slowly letting it out she picked up her story, with a slightly whistful look on her face:: He had promised he would come back soon.... but finally after two years I caught wind that he had married someone else.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::glares, frowning:: Why didn't you go with him?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::she glances around, shrugging:: He said it was too dangerous and that I should stay on the Island. He said he didn't want me to leave my family and it wasn't proper since we werent married yet. He didn't want to committ until
Maeve Owens: he knew he could support me. ::sadly:: I believed him.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: I'm sorry. ::pauses, then, with a smirk:: Sure you still fit?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::smirks:: Of course it does!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::puts his hand flat against Lu's stomach, still smirking:: Are you *sure*?
Maeve Owens: LU: ::smiles a little, placing her hand over his:: Yes silly, I'm only like about five weeks along. ::laughs::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods; not speaking much more as they leave the house to go to Lu's buggy; he's hoping not to see anyone he knows too well::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::once they stop at the next town for something to eat, while they're still in the buggy; slips a rather simple gold band with a diamond on it onto Lu's left ring finger, looking rather sober, not particularly happy, but not nervous, either::
Maeve Owens: LU: ::she glances down at the ring on her finger, smiling:: Thanks Toby, its beautiful. ::she leans over to kiss his cheek::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::holds her hand a moment longer, then moves to help her out of the buggy::
