~Friday, August 10, 1928~

YarnKittymon: TY: ::is sleeping late that morning, tossing and turning a bit, uneasily::
Maeve34: MV: :::she is still propped up against the wall in her corner:::
Maeve34: MV: ::::she is fighting to keep her eyes from closing:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::eventually fell asleep on the other bed, although she's been occasionally muttering things, sounding rather nervous and frightened::
YarnKittymon : : ::there's a timid knock at the door::
Maeve34 : MV: :::she jumps and hits her head against the wall::
YarnKittymon : TY: ::still doesn't wake::
Quantum Catz : BM: ::doesn't respond::
Maeve34 : MV: :::slowly she stands, willing her aching muscles to cooperate and tiptoes over to the door. She takes a deep breath and then cringes::: Who is it?
YarnKittymon : : ::a very small voice, a female's, comes through the door:: Maeve?
Quantum Catz : BM: ::opes her eyes to look at the door, though she doesn't say anything::
Maeve34 : MV: ::She lets out a relieved sigh and opens the door::: What are you doing here? How did you even find us?
YarnKittymon : : ::Mercy steps in, looking rather worried:: I just did...::looks down::
Maeve34 : MV: :::she closes the door, looking rather confused and whispered:: You have to be quiet they are still asleep. Was there something you needed?
YarnKittymon : : ::Mercy looks up sadly:: My mother didn't come home last night.
Maeve34 : MV: :::her heart skips a beat and she gulps::: I'm sorry Mercy. Does your father know where she is?
YarnKittymon : : ::the girl shakes her head:: Help me find her? And your girl-friend isn't happy, you know.
Maeve34 : MV: :::nods::: Of course I'll help you find her. :::she tilts her head in the direction of the beds::: Yeah, they aren't too happy right now.. We can let them rest. They need it.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::softly:: How d'you *know* that?
Maeve34 : MV: :::jumps and looks over at Becky:: Ah, you're awake.
YarnKittymon : : ::Mercy smiles sadly:: It's pretty obvious, isn't it? ::glances at Toby, sighing::
Quantum Catz : BM: ::sits up and glances over at Toby too softly:: Yeah, but you hardly even saw us
Maeve34 : MV: :::lets out a big yawn and tries to cover it with her hand:::
YarnKittymon : TY: ::doesn't stir::
YarnKittymon : : ::the girl looks at Becky; softly:: Are you all right now?
Maeve34 : MV: :::walks over and pokes Toby's arm::: Are you alive? Helloooo in there.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::shrugs:: It was all a long time ago for me ::though she still looks pale; glares at maeve:: Do you *have* to do that?
Maeve34 : MV: :::shrugs::: Just making sure he was still breathing.
YarnKittymon : TY: ::opens his eyes slowly, turning to look at Maeve, vaguely frightened; doesn't speak::
Maeve34 : MV: :::smiles and waves:::
Quantum Catz : BM: ::softly, to Toby:: You okay?
Maeve34 : MV: :::looks over to Mercy::: Do you have any idea on where to start our search?
YarnKittymon : TY: ::looks at Becky, frowning, then back at Maeve, not getting up:: *What* search?
Quantum Catz : BM: ::quietly:: She's offered to help the girl find her mother
YarnKittymon : TY: ::groans softly::
Maeve34 : MV: I'll be back in a little while. Unless you two want to tag along.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::wryly:: Yeah, cos that's just how *I* wanted to start the day
Maeve34 : MV: Well fine, then dont come along. You two can stay here and rest.
YarnKittymon : TY: ::sits up, ruffling his hair:: I guess we gotta help?
Maeve34 : MV: :::frowns:: You dont have to do anything. I can handle it if you two arent up to it.
YarnKittymon : TY: ::raises his eyebrows:: Who's gonna get killed?
Maeve34 : MV: :::puts her hands on her hips::: What kind of question is that! We are going to look for her mother... and I am certainly not going to kill her!
Quantum Catz : BM: ::darkly:: Innocent bystander then?
YarnKittymon : TY: No fire?
Maeve34 : MV: :::pouts::: Now when have I ever injured anyone that was "innocent"! :::pauses::: Since I met you.
Maeve34 : MV: Fire? what fire? I know of no fire. :::grins:::
Quantum Catz : BM: ::under her breath:: Did you pause to look back when you threw the fireball yesterday?
Maeve34 : MV: :::frowns::: Ummm. no....
Quantum Catz : BM: Big surprise ::stands up, brushing her hand through her hair::
Maeve34 : MV: :::shrugs:::
YarnKittymon : TY: ::gets up too, straightening his clothes:: Then I guess we'd better get going.
Maeve34 : MV: ::::rolls her eyes:: Fine. Then lets go. :::looks down at Mercy::: Do you know where your mother was going last? To work?
Quantum Catz : BM: ::glares at Maeve for her lack of concern about her fireballs::
YarnKittymon : : ::brightly:: She works in the ballpark.
Maeve34 : MV: :::she turns a little pale and gulps::: Oh no. No way.
YarnKittymon : TY: ::frowns:: You think...
Maeve34 : MV: :::throws her hands up in there, already expecting the worst::: Of course! Why not! Not one hour can go by without something going disasterously wrong!!!
Quantum Catz : BM: ::winces; softly:: Good thing that guy tried to protect her from your revenge...or you'd've *killed* her...
YarnKittymon : : ::Mercy looks up at them, wide-eyed:: Do you know my mom?
Maeve34 : MV: :::her eyes widen::: What guy?
YarnKittymon : TY: ::under his breath:: The one who was protecting her.
Quantum Catz : BM: ::smiles rather sardonically:: Now you want to know, do you?
Maeve34 : MV: :::she turns even paler and looks down at Mercy, her face full of concern and guilt::: Oh god Mercy, I am so sorry. I didn't mean to. It just happened!
Maeve34 : MV: :::gasps:: But the guy? He's alright isn't he?
YarnKittymon : : ::the girl looks astonished:: What are you talking about?
YarnKittymon : TY: ::shrugs:: I think he's alive.
Maeve34 : MV: :::Anxiously::: What happened to that woman then?
Quantum Catz : BM: ::shrugs:: We had to look for you...
YarnKittymon : : ::Mercy steps closer to the door:: Will you help me?
Maeve34 : MV: :::bites her lip for a moment and then nods::: Yes, of course. :::looks to the two of them::: You guys dont have to come. Maybe it would be better if you didn't.

YarnKittymon: TY: ::under his breath:: But...you might get into trouble.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::under her breath:: *Might?*
Maeve Owens: MV: :::glares at the two of them::: Hey! You two make it sound like I can't live one day without getting myself into some kind of mishap! geesh.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sarcastically:: Gee, i don't know why we'd think that!
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy smiles:: When's the last day you did?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she folds her arms across her chest and pouts::: It wasn't *me* who caused trouble yesterday. The last incident was the little trip through the woods which I dont even remember when it was!
Quantum Catz: BM: Try the day before yesterday
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sits down on the bed, frowning::
Maeve Owens: MV: See, I went a whole day without causing any trouble. So there. :::sticks her tongue out at them:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::rolls her eyes::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she glances over at Toby and her expression softens a little::: If you're tired Toby, you should stay here. I promise I wont set fire to anything.
YarnKittymon: TY: Setting a man on fire...that doesn't qualify as trouble?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::winces::: Yes but he wasn't the intended target. :::sighs::: Fine, from now on I'm not a variant with fire power.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy looks up at Maeve; softly:: He's crying.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she glances back up at Toby, not sure who she is talking about:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Toby automatically as well::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still looks a bit upset, but not near tears::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she looks back at Mercy::: Who?
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl shrugs:: Someone you know. Sorry. I didn't mean to upset you.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::wraps her arms around herself::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sighs::: It would be nice if you had names to go along with these feelings. How well do I have to know this person in order for you to tell? For example, it couldn't be someone I met briefly for about 5 minutes and then *ACCIDENTLY* set fire to them could it?
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl shakes her head, stepping away a step::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Becky, frowning::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::frowns::: Sorry, didn't mean to make you afriad. I was aiming for someone who... :::pauses, letting her sentence trail off::: Never mind. Should we get going? Or would you rather have Becky take you now instead?
YarnKittymon: : ::in a small voice, Mercy says:: I just want Mommy back.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Mercy, rather sadly, though she doesn't make any move towards her::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods:: So whoever is coming, come now or forever hold your peace. :::she motions for Mercy to head on out the door:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::slowly gets up, still looking troubled::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy takes Maeve's hand, squeezing it::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::feels rather sorry for the girl but doesn't say anything and moves towards the door::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she smiles and squeezes back. Then she leads Mercy out the door, leaving it open in case the others follow:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::follows after them, though not particularly enthusiastically; locks the door behind them::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she occasionally gives Mercy an encouraging smile but inside she fears that this search will end badly. That one more girl will be left alone to weather the storm without parents there to guide her:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy looks down, sighing:: I don't know where she is, and I can never tell how she's feeling.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::inwardly sighs, hoping that she cant tell her feelings either::: I'm sure we'll find her. We can start at the ball park and make our way from there. Unless you know of any place she goes when she wants to be alone.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy shrugs:: She goes to the roof when it's raining, sometimes, but it's not raining now.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shrugs::: Then its off to the ball park I guess.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Can't we try somewhere else?
Maeve Owens: MV: Where else do you think we should go?
YarnKittymon: TY: *Anywhere.*
Maeve Owens: MV: :::frowns::: The point is to find her mother! If you're that scared then *you* dont have to come!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glares at Maeve:: Give it a rest, Maeve
YarnKittymon: TY: ::fiercely:: Do you want to go through *that* again?
Maeve Owens: MV: No *I* dont! But I also dont want to see her spending the rest of her life alone on the streets!
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy just watches them with wide eyes::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the ground::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::angrily::: So the two of you can stay here! I on the other hand am going to make sure that she at least gets *her* mother back!! :::stalks off:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy is dragged, still wide-eyed:: What are they scared of?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::grumbles:: Your mother and her visions.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly, without moving:: We sould follow her
YarnKittymon: : ::shakes her head:: What visions?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::under his breath:: I know. ::takes Becky's hand, but doesn't start walking:: Why'd she have to go missing?
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sighs heavily::: Your mother took the opportunity to lets us all relive moments from their past. :::softly::: which was pretty darn terrifying.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::stops for a moment:: If that was your mother anyway.
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl swallows:: Mommy scared you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Why'd Maeve have to run into the girl in the first place?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::under his breath:: Because we didn't stop her from running away in the first place.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::shrugs:: Do you know about your mother's power? Or if she even has one?
Quantum Catz: BM: Great, we get to travel all across America babysitting Maeve - what fun
YarnKittymon: : ::shakes her head:: What do you mean, power?
Maeve Owens: MV: It's like what you have. Your ability to feel what others are feeling.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sighs:: That, or let her get killed. Or just as bad, convince everyone variants are dangerous.
YarnKittymon: : ::blinks:: Oh. I don't know. I don't know how Mommy could scare anyone.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::wearily:: Wonderful Come on then ::starts to follow Maeve, not looking too happy about it::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sighs:: I guess we will find out soon, whether or not they are the same person. What does your mother look like?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::walks with Becky, glaring a bit, but there's fear under his look
YarnKittymon: : ::smiles:: Real pretty. She had long hair--::motions to her shoulders::--and always put it under a hat when she went to work.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sighs:: Well, gee, that narrows it down. Anything else?
YarnKittymon: : Her eyes were brown. And her lips were red, but she didn't wear lipstick. She said so.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::nods::: What was she wearing when she went to work yesterday? Do you know what she does there?
YarnKittymon: : ::grins:: She sells hot dogs!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::squeezes Becky's hand; softly:: I...really do love you, Becky.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at him and smiles slightly, though there's still a weary look in her eyes:: I really love you too
Maeve Owens: MV: ::groans:: Well, if the woman we met yesterday isn't your mother, I'm going to be very suprised.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Just wanted you to know...in case...something happens.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy nods, looking troubled:: I'm sorry if she was mean to you.
YarnKittymon: : ::they're nearing the ballpark::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::wryly:: What could possibly happen to us with Maeve around? ::sighs::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::she smiles slightly down at Mercy, shaking her head::: Its not your fault.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy suddenly grabs Maeve's other arm, too, looking rather scared:: She feels like your friends do.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::frowns:: I didn't think you could feel what she is feeling.
YarnKittymon: : ::shakes her head:: I never could...I guess I wasn't...wasn't...was too close to her.
Maeve Owens: MV: :::awkawrdly, she hugs Mercy to her side::: If she saw the same thing we did, then its to be expected. She'll be okay. I promise. ::softly:: Can you tell where she is now?
: ::Mercy stays next to Maeve, her eyes open but not seeing; suddenly yells:: Get away from me!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::maeve jumps., releasing Mercy and stumbles back a few steps, looking scared and guilty at the same time::: What? What happened?
: ::the girl looks terrified, not moving:: Don't...don't touch me...please...::sinks to her knees, a blank expression on her face::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Okay, I won't. Just tell me what happened.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::when she sees the girl drop to her knees, she hurries up a bit::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::follows, a little worried::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy suddenly blinks, then looks up:: What happened?
SP00KY One: MV: I dont know. I was hoping you could tell me. Did you feel something? See something?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hears Maeve's question and turns to look at the girl, stopping just behind them::
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl looks around, a little puzzled:: I felt l was with Mommy.
SP00KY One: MV: Could you tell where that was?
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl smiles slightly:: I didn't see anything. But that means she's okay, since I saw her, right?
SP00KY One: MV: :::smiles slightly and nods::: Yeah, she's going to be fine. Lets go find her.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still looks rather troubled, but doesn't speak--is vaguely thinking that maybe Becky could find her, but wouldn't dare suggest it, on the off chance that Becky might try it::
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl nods, getting up, and taking Maeve's hand again, starting off down another street::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Do we ave *any* idea where we're going yet?
SP00KY One: MV: :::allows the girl to lead her:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: No. I don't know if the girl knows or not.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs: Great ::heads after Mercy and Maeve::
YarnKittymon: : ::they're headed downtown, it looks like::
SP00KY One: MV: Do you have an idea of where she is now?
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl walks down the sidewalk, peering into they alleys they pass by:: No. Do you?
SP00KY One: MV: No, I figured since you had that whatever that you knew where you were going.
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl shakes her head, and then looks back straight at Becky:: You could find her.
Quantum Catz: BM ::softly:: So what if i could? I don't think i have the energy to come back again - unless she's close
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns::: I dont think you should. What if she starts the visions again?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::squeezes Becky's hand:: You're not going.
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods::: Especially if you cant take all of us with you. :::smirks::: I'm not the only one that shouldn't be alone at the moment.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: I could handle my own past...if that's what she tried...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: Our pasts are about the same, aren't they? I don't care how strong anyone is...I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
SP00KY One: MV: ::looks at the ground for a moment, sighs and then looks over at Mercy::: Should we keep going in this direction?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl nods:: Mommy won't hurt you. Don't be scared or angry.
SP00KY One: MV: :::smirks::: After what she saw, I doubt she would try anything again.
YarnKittymon: : ::frowns:: What did she see?
SP00KY One: MV: :::shakes her head, possibly to clear her mind of the forbidden images::: You dont want to know.
YarnKittymon: : ::they suddenly hear someone yell "Police!"; Toby jumps::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she jumps as well, ducking behind Mercy as best as she can:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::just freezes, her expression rather weary::
SP00KY One: MV: ::peeks her head above Mercy's shoulder::: I didn't do it!
YarnKittymon: : ::two people come out of the alley up ahead, a woman supporting a man as best she can; the man is bleeding from the side::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she glances at them but she doesn't move. Afraid of what could happen next::: Maybe we should get out of here.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy squeaks:: Mommy! ::and tries to run ahead::
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman yells:: Someone call an ambulance!
YarnKittymon: : ::the man she's holding is very pale::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the two people rather blankly::
SP00KY One: MV: :::releases her hold on Mercy and steps closer to Toby and Becky:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy runs past the two hysterical people, and disappears into the alley beyond them::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: He's bleeding a lot.
SP00KY One: MV: :::groans::: Oh great. :::she runs after Mercy::: Wait! Where are you going!
Quantum Catz: BM: We should help...
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy hasn't gone too far down the alley; at the far end is a woman with shoulder-length hair, still in her concession-stand uniform, holding a knife, a crazy look in her eyes:: Get away from me!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, looking rather resigned:: To prison, then. ::heads over towards the two people::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she catches up to Mercy and tries to hold her back::: Wait! :::watches the crazy woman carfully:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks round for a payphone::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy has stopped, watching the woman, scared; softly:: It's Mommy....
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a pay phone right outside the drugstore, a couple blocks back::
SP00KY One: MV: :::softly:: Whats your mother's name?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::quickly heads for the payphone::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::goes to the couple:: Lay him down. I'm gonna...::pauses::...gonna help him, but it'll hurt him. Okay?
YarnKittymon: : ::miserably:: Sarah.
YarnKittymon: : ::it costs a nickel to make a call ((I guess ^_^;;; ))::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::dials for an ambulance...and for the police, telling them as much as she knows::
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman looks rather horrified at Toby, but doesn't voice an objection, so he puts his hands over the man; luckily, he's mostly unconscious, and doesn't feel it::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she holds on to Mercy's arm, trying to the gril next to her::: Sarah? Put down the knife. Mercy, your daughter, is here. She would like for you to take her home now. So if you would just put the knife down...
Quantum Catz: : ::suddenly they're all thrown into a long stream of flashes of different tortures all being carried out one after the other and building up in pain and intesity which speeds up for a moment then suddenly freezes, with them dropping to their knees in a room full of children, all looking at them, rather pityingly::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::just looks around, silently, trembling and shuddering, completely caught up in the thing::
Quantum Catz: : ::their bodies are aching with pain and its hard to move, but two people come to help them up, one with tears in her eyes - dominick and fiona, to Becky::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she squeezes her eyes shut, her heart pounding and takes a few deep breaths::: no, not again. :::carefully she opens her eyes to see some of her childhood friends sitting there:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Toby sees Christa and Clayton, and is vaguely surprised to find he can touch Christa; leans against her shoulder, his eyes wet::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she reaches out to touch her sister and Alex, crying at the sight of both of them and hoping they weren't feeling the same things she was:::
Quantum Catz: : ::the two people help them to a chair but quickly pull away, looking like they want to hold them and say something, but like something's stopping them::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she reaches out to her sister; sobbing::: Aldez?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::draws his knees up to his chest, looking at his friends, silently, still shaking::
Quantum Catz: : ::the guy soon goes to sit somewhere else, although occasionally looking back; the girl sits opposite them, trembling slightly and trying to force herself not to cry::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she gets up and tries to go over to her sister:::
Quantum Catz: : ::the girl says softly; covering her face:: I'm sorry...i know you don't like me crying...but it's so hard...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::finds himself standing as well; softly:: You think they can't figure it out?
SP00KY One: MV: ::::frowns::: Aldez? :::she sits down next to her sister and clings to her fearfully:::
Quantum Catz: : I can't stand it - i can't stand you always freezing us out like we don't exist
SP00KY One: MV: :::she frowns again, although somewhere inside of her she knows this isn't real. Anger over the fact that they are hurting her twin wins out:::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she grabs her sister by the arm and pulls her to her feet::: come on! we are getting out of here! :::she walks purposefully over to the guard::: Unless you want to become a pile of ashes I suggest you move!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::finds himself grabbing Christa and walking out, though he's terrified doing it, and knows they'll be killed for it::
Quantum Catz: : ::an electric shock suddenly shoots through them, adding to the pain they already feel and making it seem like every molecule in their bodies are aching::
SP00KY One: MV: ::she screams and falls to her knees. She clenches her teeth; determined not to give up without a fight. She tries to make a fireball and throw it at the guard. However, somewhere inside her she knows that there will just be more and that death is probably waiting for her once again:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::cries out:: I'm sorry! ::falls to his knees too::
Quantum Catz: : ::the shock repeats a few times until the pain knocks them unconscious::
Quantum Catz: : ::they wake up in an empty room, in such pain that they have to lean against the wall to stand; a man standing behind a nearby screen who'd most likely be see as their fathers::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::curses softly, trying to keep from crying::
SP00KY One: MV: :::slowly she opens her eyes and looks around; reaching for her sister. She looks up to see her father standing behind a screen::: Daddy? :::her eyes tear up and she tries to stand, meanwhile calling out to her father::
Quantum Catz: : ::with a scared expression:: I have a plan. A plan to get you out of here. A plan so that you'll be normal and you can go outside and live a normal life.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: I missed you.
SP00KY One: MV: :::crying softly::: You're dead? I dont understand! Are you coming with me?
Quantum Catz: : ::talks throug them:: ...it should remove your powers and focus them on a point outside your body. Then the energy will take on a more solid form, maybe even have some of your memories or personality--then I'll dispel the energy and make sure someone sees--and then--
Quantum Catz: : ::looks rushed and nervous and rather afraid::
SP00KY One: MV: :::using the wall for support, she makes her way closer to the screen::: And then what? We'll be together again? Daddy?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::murmurs:: Becky.
Quantum Catz: : ::for a moment their father looks at them, a long, almost loving look, and then he presses a few buttons and they suddenly feel like someone's trying to rip them into millions of pieces::
Quantum Catz: : ::they hear becky's voice through the pain:: I already knew i was going to die...he told me...i was never going to escape...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::yells out, though he hears Becky's words::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she cries out and slips to the floor. Curling into a little ball. A part of her wonders why her father would want to hurt her. Through the pain she hears Becky but the words hold no meaning::::
Quantum Catz: : ::the pain seems to last forever and then it quite suddenly feels like it's exploding outwards and their surroundings are wiped out with light, the sound of everything tearing apart around them::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is suddenly very afraid, certain that he's dead, or dying::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she continues to scream, calling out to her father and her sister. Wanting to see them again so badly before she succumbs to the darkness threatening to take her once more.:::
Quantum Catz: : ::for a moment, they don't feel anything...and then they're standing, feeling like they're not entirely solid, all of their pain gone, looking around at the crumbled remains of the room::
SP00KY One: MV: :::her voice hoarse from screaming::: Aldez? Daddy? What happened? :::looks down at herself::: I'M DEAD!
Quantum Catz: : ::their own body's on the ground, staring up at them::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is too stunned by the relief from pain to think anything for a bit, until Maeve's words shock him out of it; he's briefly scared to see himself on the ground, but then looks away, thinking death's a somewhat welcome release::
SP00KY One: MV: :::pokes her arm, watching as her finger moves through her arm. She looks down at the body on the ground. Irrationally she thinks it her sister::: Aldez! :::she rushes over and tries to shake it:::
SP00KY One: MV: You're not dead! It only felt like you were ripped in two! Wake up!! :::she looks closer at the body and realizes that its actually her::: Oh. Its me. *I'M DEAD!* :::she sits there stunned for a little while:::
Quantum Catz: : ::they hear becky sobbing and then it all vanishes and they find themselves back in the present::
YarnKittymon: : ::when they wake, they're laid out in a row on the sidewalk, a medic trying to take care of them; Sarah is beside Maeve::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she wakes up and looks around for her sister. Instead she sees Sarah. She reaches over and takes the woman by the throat::: What is wrong with you!
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy is standing over all of them, looking terrified::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy yells:: Maeve!
YarnKittymon: : ::the woman is sobbing::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is curled up inside the phone box, the receiver dangling beside her, starig blankly ahead of her, tears occasionally slipping from her eyes::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she stops and looks over at Mercy. She blinks several times and then looks back at Sarach. She lets go of the woman and tries to crawl away from all of them::
YarnKittymon: : ::a friendly-looking medic, at least 30 years old, stops Maeve:: Stay where you are, miss. We need to look at you.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::doesn't get up; softly:: Becky...
SP00KY One: MV: :::slowly she gets to her feet and stumbles away. Slapping at the medic::: Get away from me! ::: This time she cant stop the tears and her body is wracked with sobs:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy yells:: Maeve! They're trying to help!
SP00KY One: MV: :::wrapping her arms around herself she conitnues to stumble away, ignoring Mercy.:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the medic grabs Maeve to stop her:: We need to take you in for some tests.
YarnKittymon: TY: No tests! ::sits up::
SP00KY One: MV: :::at the word test she jerks away, stumbling and falling to the ground::: NO! Get away from me!
SP00KY One: MV: :::she briefly thinks about using her powers but something inside her says thats the reason they want the test. She sobs even harder and helplessly kicks out at the man:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::cringes to see there's blood on his hands; looks up at Maeve; softly:: She has her mother...calm down...we're fine...we're OK...
SP00KY One: MV: :::she slowly stands up and walks away, this time a little faster while trying to reign in her emotions:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::gets to his feet as well, looking around; softly:: Where's Becky?
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy wipes her eyes; softly:: Close.
SP00KY One: MV: :::hoping that the farther she is away from that woman the less likely she will be hit with another vision, she heads off down the street:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hasn't moved at all since the vision ended::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::pushes the medic aside and follows Maeve::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she tries to wipe the tears from her eyes but for some reason this time they wont stop coming. She curses under her breath:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve walks by a phone booth with its door just slightly open; someone's inside::
SP00KY One: MV: :::too intent on getting away to pay attention to a phone booth:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::recognizes the color of the skirt he can see; opens the door; softly:: Becky...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::blinks and looks up at him, then quickly wipes away her tears:: What...what happened to the woman?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Still cowering on the sidewalk, I guess. Come on.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she stops for a moment, thinking about Mercy and then shakes her head. She found her mother; mumbling::: Got to get farther away. :::wrapping her arms around herself she continues on down the road:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::stands up, rather shakily::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes Becky's hand; softly:: We're solid. See?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::pulls her hand away and folds her arms around her; snaps:: Yeah, i'm not brain-dead - i kinda noticed
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns, hurt, but feels a little less shunned when he remembers his hands are covered in dried blood; softly:: Let's catch Maeve and go back to the room.
Quantum Catz: BM: Running after Maeve again, great
SP00KY One: MV: ::she isn't actually running, not moving very fast and she can probably still be seen up ahead:::
YarnKittymon: TY: I'll give you the key; you can go back on your own. But everyone saw us together; if she gets in trouble, we're all in trouble.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shakes her head:: I'm fine ::though she keeps her arms folded tightly against her::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::walks a little faster, glancing at Becky:: You still think different than I do.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: What d'you mean?
YarnKittymon: TY: When I saw...me...dead...I just figured it was my body, that *I* was a ghost or something.
Quantum Catz: BM: Not so different from what i felt ::wryly:: Cept it stopped before you actually had to try to live like that
SP00KY One: MV: :::pauses to catch her breath:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Becky for a moment, then catches up with Maeve:: Come on. We're going home.
SP00KY One: MV: ::she jumps when Toby speak, her eyes fixated on the ground:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::slows down, looking rather weary::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: Come on. If we get to sleep soon enough maybe we can pretend it was just a dream.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles rather bitterly at that, since it was't a dream to her::
SP00KY One: MV: :::her voice catches in her throat::: Sleep, no sleep for me again. That was enough sleep. Being unconscious. Thank you very much.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::after a pause:: Then we can keep moving. You said you can drive.
SP00KY One: MV: :::wryly:: Oh yes, a sleep deprived person makes for excellent driving.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Your body won't let you stay awake forever
YarnKittymon: TY: ::cringes:: And you start to see things if you haven't slept for a couple days.
SP00KY One: MV: :::smirks:: Watch me. :::against her will she lets out a yawn:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes Maeve's arm:: Please.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she jumps at the contact and jerks her arm away. She turns to find that its only Toby standing there and she smiles slightly at him::: Sorry.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::half-smiles:: I've just been having awful luck lately. Now come on.
SP00KY One: MV: :::wryly::: You've been having awful luck? hmph.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::while walking, cleans the blood off of his hands:: I guess we all have.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows behind, not saying anything::
