~Friday, August 10, 1928 part 2~

YarnKittymon: TY: ::puts his hands in his pockets, looking at the sidewalk as he heads towards the hotel, glancing up every so often to make sure no one's run off::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::walks behind them, not saying anything, almost as if she's trying to keep herself separate::
SP00KY One: MV: ::::her eyes are focussed on the ground while she walks. Her mind a million miles away. Or more specifically, on the events that had just transpired and the reason behind Sarah's insanity:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly, trying to smile:: That knocked the *last* nightmare half out of my mind, anyway.
SP00KY One: MV: :::Fear knotted in her stomach and she was desperate to know if she too would end up like that woman. Gone insane from all the events that had transpired. Slowly, she brings her right arm up and pinches herself::: OUCH! ::::she rubs her arm:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glares at Maeve::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Maeve; softly:: No matter how real it seemed...it's done.
SP00KY One: MV: :::She doesn't seem to hear Toby at all. Under her breath, and making sure no one is within earshot, she mumbles::: Thats no kind of test for insanity!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sighs, pressing his fists against his legs inside his pockets, to keep them from trembling::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks away from them both, like she wishes she was anywere but where she was::
SP00KY One: MV: :::slowly an idea comes to her, and her face brightens for a moment. Meanwhile she tries to keep her other hand from pinching herself again ::: A word association!
YarnKittymon: TY: What?
SP00KY One: MV: :::she is too lost in her own thoughts to hear Toby. She shakes her head, looking a little angry::: No, you cant give yourself a word association! well, why not. as long as you dont know the next word thats coming up.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks back at Becky with a strange expression, afraid she might have gone insane too::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is just silently walking along, not really paying attention to maeve::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she takes a deep breath and sighs heavily, thinking of a word. Her voice is soft::: Cat. :::brief pause::: *cat* :::concentrates for a moment and then more determinedly::: Dog. ::pause::: *Dog*
YarnKittymon: TY: ::walks to the room, pulling out the key; quietly, almost as if to himself:: The last one...faded a little...like you start to forget a dream...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I guess that's helpful for *you* then
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: Even the first one...when I woke up this morning...didn't you feel a little better?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: It's easy to feel better once it stops...except who's to say it won't start again just like it always did?
SP00KY One: MV: :::intensely concentrated on her task, she mumbles::: Rat. Cat. Bat. Louse. Mouse. :::her words are getting even louder::: Cat. Rat. Bat. Dog. :::::she sighs:: Yeah, rats. Fitting.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sighs, looking up at Maeve:: Keep it down. ::opens the door for the women::
SP00KY One: MV: :::hits herself on the head::: You are not anymore insane than usual. Repeat that six more times and maybe you will believe it.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Maeve like she's an idiot and then goes to sit down on one of the beds::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::waits until everyone's inside, then closes the door, lingering at it a bit::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she walks in and sits back down in her corner. Her expression blank.:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sits down on the bed, shuddering once, involuntarily:: Can I get anyone anything? Make something?
SP00KY One: MV: :::she blinks but doesn't respond:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::Shakes her head::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::lays down, sighing a bit:: If I can do something, tell me. Maeve, if you're not better by tomorrow I'm gonna try to shake some sense into you or something.
SP00KY One: MV: :::no response:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::kicks off his shoes, curling up on the un-made bed::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::still has a sort of 'anywhere but here' look in her eyes::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: It *does* get better...
Quantum Catz: BM: but it still comes back to haunt you
Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces at the word 'haunt'::
SP00KY One: MV: :::tearfully:: Unless it gets worse and I end up in the assylum right next to Sarah! But then maybe I belong there. Who knows, maybe its just a matter of time! Hey, we still have one more past to relive. Who says its going away?
YarnKittymon: TY: But it's not your fault.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks over at Maeve; quietly:: What's yours?
SP00KY One: MV: :::shakes her head, putting on her blank expression again. She shrugs::: Nothing much really. No big deal. :::she looks away:::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she bites her lip as images of her Dad standing in that lab enter her mind:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly, not looking at anyone, so it's hard to tell who he's talking to:: He died, right?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::doesn't respond anyway::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grabs his pillow, wrapping his arm around it in a hug::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she looks up at Toby, rather confused::: Who died?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks back at Maeve; softly:: Dad.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up at the two of them, frowning slightly:: What're you talking about?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: The man in the lab.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mutters:: You said Dad - he was never my father. He was an idiot - he was a complete--- ::stops, looking away::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::holds the pillow tighter:: He was my dad.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she wraps her arms around her legs and stays quiet:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::just glares ahead of her:: Stop messing with my memories. The guy who tests you in a lab doesn't make up a father - i kept the stupid name he gave me, what more did he want?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is quiet for a while; softly:: It's what I saw.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::doesn't look too happy about it but doesn't say anything else::
SP00KY One: MV: :::the blank expression is back and she pinches herself again. She winces and rubs her arm.:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly, not moving:: Is anyone hungry?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::an annoyed look stil on her face:: No
SP00KY One: MV: :::shakes her head no:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::under his breath:: I wish we had a TV.
SP00KY One: MV; :::under her breath::: I wish I still had my family. :::she hugs herself tighter:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::doesn't say anything::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::holds the pillow tightly enough that one of his arms goes right through it; cries out and sits up, scared::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she jumps at Toby's outburst and looks up startled::: What?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looking kind of pale:: Someone touch me and tell me I'm not a ghost.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at him:: You're *not* a ghost - we don't need to touch you
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks down, reaching back to touch the headboard; softly:: You know what I mean.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: You'd know if what happened to me had happened to you - you'd be spending your whole time just focussing on holding yourself together
SP00KY One: MV: :::she just blinks at them. Folding herself into her little corner and hoping to become invisible. Which probably wouldn't be hard. At least she can go insane alone:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::after a moment, softly:: Are you okay, Becky? Are you going to be okay?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mutters:: I'm fine
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns; glances back at the corner:: Maeve? What about you?
SP00KY One: MV: :::grumbles::: what do you think?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: At least you're not lying.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::snaps:: Well *I*'m not lying either
SP00KY One: MV: ::sighs::: Can we possibly go far away from this place? Before we have any more wonderful visions?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, stooping to get his shoes; his hands are still shaking::
YarnKittymon: : ::they hear someone yell, as if from far away:: She saw them come in here!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces:: Oh great!
SP00KY One: MV: :::she freezes, a look of terror coming over her face::: What is that?!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still rather pale; puts on his shoes; softly:: Calm down.
SP00KY One: MV: :::frantically, she gets up from the floor, looking for a place to hide. :::
SP00KY One: MV: Calm down! God knows what will happen if the get their hands on us! I am not going to be locked up anywhere ever again! I am not going back to prison and there is no way they are going to find out that I might be just as crazy as Sarah!
YarnKittymon: : ::they hear another voice, closer:: I still think it was a trick.
SP00KY One: MV: :::She goes to inspect the bed to see if she can crawl under it and hide:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve can, easily::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: They can't get through the door.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::gets this look on her face like she wants to leave again, but glances at Toby and then looks at the floor, sighing::
SP00KY One: MV: ::she thinks for a moment and then shakes her head::: Too easy. ::she looks at Toby::: What do you mean they cant get through?
YarnKittymon: : ::the first voice, like it's right in front of the door:: I saw him heal the fella. Which room's theirs?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::glances at the door; the whole lock and knob has been melted, and it's unlikely that even bashing it would force it open::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she follows his gaze to the door::: You trapped us in here!!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::wryly:: Trapped *you* maybe
SP00KY One: MV: :::she glares at Becky:::
YarnKittymon: : ::they hear through the door, very quietly:: Whoever's in here did *something* they don't want people to know about.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::groans; softly:: If we want to get away we might need disguises. Again.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs::
SP00KY One: MV: Yes, the farther away from that woman the better.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods quickly; goes up and looks at the mirror, changing his hair to black; grimaces::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks at Becky; softly:: We ought to change clothes, but can you get us out of here?
Quantum Catz: BM: I can get *myself* out of here
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, frowning; suddenly snaps his fingers:: How about me arresting the two of you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns:: What?
SP00KY One: MV: :::she raises her eyebrows::: I've already been arrested once thanks.
YarnKittymon: TY: If I made the uniform and hauled you two off to my unmarked car...?
SP00KY One: MV: :::sighs:: Sure. Fine. But try anything with handcuffs and... :::she frowns and bites her lip. cutting off her response:::
YarnKittymon: : ::through the door, they hear:: There's a man in there, anyway, trying to get away.
SP00KY One: MV: ::frowns:: maybe you should turn yourself into a woman.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smirks::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::turns bright red, murmuring a rather unlady-like word::
SP00KY One: MV: :::suddenly brightens up for a moment::: I dressed Alex once in a pink fluffly dress! It could work. :::she sighs as she continues to think about Alex and the time they had together. Suddenly she missed him terribly:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly; whispers:: Can't we just let them catch me?
SP00KY One: MV: :::smirks::: You want away from me that badly?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::pauses, then after a moment, shifts his pants into a skirt not unlike Becky's, but pink, with ruffles; looks up, somewhere between annoyed and mortified::
SP00KY One: MV: ::::she tries really hard not to laugh::: Perfect. ::::she snorts:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::covers her mouth with her hand, trying not to smirk::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she tries to sober up but fails::: Now the shirt and the hair. Come on, you're half way there... wheres a camera when ya need one?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::suddenly laughs, still blushing, and makes a blouse that's the same shade of pink and considerably worse; pauses, and goes back to the bed, picking up stuffing from his pillow and putting it down his front; whispers:: Better?
SP00KY One: MV: :::she cant hold it back anymore and ends up on the floor laughing::: Now for some soft black curls!
SP00KY One: MV: :::through her laughter she gasps::: And maybe a little bonnet.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: We're trying to escape getting caught here, Maeve, not turning Toby into a drag queen
SP00KY One: MV: :::shrugs::: Anything to take the mind off of... yeah...that.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::works on the curls, and then makes a bonnet out of the pillowcase, still looking in the mirror:: I don't think they'll buy it.
SP00KY One: MV: Dont look at them and dont speak. And keep your fingers crossed that they are just a bunch of idiots. Most people are. And dont you dare say anything about present company included.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::puts on a little lipstick and blush, in the hopes it helps a little::
SP00KY One: MV: :::swallows another giggle:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at him rather disbelievingly:: Are you sure this was the best idea we had?
SP00KY One: MV: ::smirks and bites back a sarcastic remark:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::pulls the bonnet down lower, smiling a little:: It's a terrible idea, but I'll do anything for a laugh.
SP00KY One: MV: :::grunts::: Oh yes, and turning himself over to them was such a wonderful idea.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Maeve rather coldly:: Yeah, cos i was gonna *let* him do that
YarnKittymon: TY: ::walks towards the door, his black tennis shoes showing under the long skirt::
SP00KY One: MV: :::shrugs:: I didn't hear you coming up with anything! And it wasn't like he was jumping to get into the police uniform. Besides, they are looking for a man and two women. This should throw them off long enough to get the to car
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs and stands up:: Whatever
SP00KY One: MV: :::she looks irritated and considers using her sarcastic remark anyway:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly, throwing his voice in an attempt to sound female:: Stop fussin', you two.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she groans and rolls her eyes:: I thought I said *not* to speak.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shrugs, melding the doorknob back into a knob; opens it cautiously::
YarnKittymon: : ::the two people outside, watching the doorway, look rather baffled::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she holds her breath, waiting for the worst to happen::::
YarnKittymon: : ::one of the people asks them:: Um...have you seen a brown-haired man around here? About this tall...::motions, looking up at Toby, who's rather tall for a woman; Toby blushes, looking at the ground::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::moves forward and looks at the person like they're an idiot:: Why would we have a *man* in our bedroom? What exactly are you suggesting?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs, though he at least keeps his mouth closed::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks rather alarmed, shaking his head:: I didn't mean...just...have you *seen* him? In the hallways?
SP00KY One: MV: :::shakes her head::: No, sorry. Cant say that we have. We must be going. :::she takes toby by the arm::; Come along Martha. ::::she stiffles a grin:::

YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly, under his breath:: Why'd you name me Martha?
SP00KY One: MV: :::she shrugs, a small smile playing at the corners of her mouth::: It was the first thing off the top of my head.
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, I'm *not* going to make doilies out of recycled paper pulp or whatever.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly::
SP00KY One: MV: ::she looks at him quizzically:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: Never mind. Let's get out of this awful city so I can go change clothes. ::sees a couple passers-by staring at him; coughs, and speaks in a softer voice:: Got...something in my throat.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she shakes her head and tries not to laugh::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::follows behind them both, looking like she'd rather be alone than try to make conversation with either of them::
YarnKittymon: : ::it's a pretty long walk back to the car, but they make it without incident; there's not even a ticket on it, and it's all still intact::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::unlocks the doors for the ladies...the other ladies, that is...and then gets in the driver's seat::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::gets in the back but then leans forward in her chair and says softly, to Toby:: Are you sure you're okay to drive?
SP00KY One: MV: :::she skips around to the drivers side and opens the door::: yay. front seat. Are we going to be seeing anything scenic?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks back at Becky for a moment:: As good as anyone else. I just want to get away from here. ::looks back at Maeve:: Man, I hope not.
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns::: Why? You dont like seeing beautifull land scapes of nice mountains and sparkling brooks?
YarnKittymon: TY: I just want to get to that island as soon as possible. ::frowns, grimacing:: An island *full* of variants who probably can't control their talents. We'll have a *great* time.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::turns the key and starts the car; puts it into gear::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs and leans back in her chair::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she frowns and looks out the window:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::drives back towards the main highway::
SP00KY One: :::the road before them disappears and they see a long dark hallway. Someone they would consider a sister is beside them. Faint sounds of raised voices and muffled crying is coming from behind a door at the end of the hallway:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grabs his sister's hand, squeezing rather hard; he's trembling:: Lexie...
SP00KY One: MV: :::she sucked in a deep breath. Fear clutched at her and for a moment she couldn't move. The only thing she could think of was "not again":::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sees Fiona standing in front of her and tears spring to her eyes as she remembers what she said to her in her memory before::
SP00KY One: :::They find themselves moving toward the door. Unable to turn away. The door swings open and three people are standing inside. One of them would be like a mother to them, the other a father. The third man is someone they hate:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::holds his sister tight, too scared to do much of anything, but he murmurs:: Doctor Amber...don't...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is confused when she sees the three people - dr mitchell standing beside someone she doesn't recognise along with another of the doctors from her lab - she looks at Fiona as if hoping she'll explain it somehow::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she clutched her sisters hand, not wanting to let go for fear that she would disappear again like before. She wants to look away but she cant tear her eyes away from her mother's frightened gaze:::
SP00KY One: ((before being the other dream))
YarnKittymon: TY: ::tries to shut his eyes, afraid of what he might see, but he can't stop watching::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::backs away a step, trying to fight against whatever's about to happen:: I just *saw* you die! Get out of my head!
SP00KY One: :::The father looks towards them. He is mouthing something that could be "Use your powers!":::
SP00KY One: MV: :::Once more she tries to form a fireball and cant. Beside her, Aldez throws a small patch of ice at the man's feet. But it quickly melts.:
YarnKittymon: TY: ::tries to form a knife with his trembling hands, but it doesn't work::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Fiona again then tries to teleport away, but she finds she can't and closes her eyes weakly:: Should've known...
SP00KY One: :::The evil man laughs and says something to the father. When he recieves no answer he turns and kills the mother. He gives the father another chance before pulling the trigger once more. He turns to the scared people standing at the door:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::holds his sister closer, trying to keep her from looking, even as he's crying::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::backs away from Fiona and the other scientist wrapping her arms around herself and trying to pretend none of this is happening::
SP00KY One: MV: :::She tries to turn away from the sight before but she can't. She feels herself screaming, even know she knows that none of this is real.:::
SP00KY One: :::The man lifts his gun and comes towards them. Once more they are forced to move back down the hallway. The person beside them is ripped from their side. The man has them in a death grip, the gun to their head:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::yells:: Lexie! ::tries again to form a knife, to do anything to fight, to save his sister::
SP00KY One: :::He still can't form anything.:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::her eyes widen when she sees Fiona being threatened; whispers:: No, i never let anyone hurt you over me...this isn't real
SP00KY One: ::::it goes pitch black around them and they find themselves sitting on hard wood. The person they consider to be their sister is still beside them.:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::checks Lexie instinctively, to make sure she's still warm::
SP00KY One: :::they can feel the floor gently rocking underneath them. And there is no way out of where they are at. Their powers are still useless.:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::hugs Lexie again, still crying a bit::
SP00KY One: MV: :::despite knowing that she cant get out, Maeve stands up and bangs on the walls, yelling.:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Fiona, nervously, as if afraid to face her; whispers:: I'm sorry for what i said in the lab - i know this isn't real...but i may not get the chance otherwise
SP00KY One: :::The door to their prison opens, and bright sunlight blinds them. They are lifted out of the ship's brig. Water surrounds them on all sides.:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly, his eyes still wet:: It'll be all right.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she swallows hard and grabs onto her sister:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::remembers the day at the pier when she sees the water and tries to back away from it all::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: What now?
SP00KY One: ::::a large man is standing before them. Another person that they hate who most likely ordered them around. "Guess what litlte stowaways, we have some jobs for you":::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly, utterly defeated:: Don't hurt her. I'll do whatever you want.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::just sighs and doesn't say a word, hoping that this'll all end soon::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she groaned, already feeling the hot sun beating down on her back.:::
SP00KY One: :::The man laughed at Toby and ignored his plea:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::just waits, glancing once at his sister::
SP00KY One: :::for hours they scrubbed the deck. The men on board stood around, taunting them. It seems that they could never get the floor shiny enough. They were already pretty tired, feeling like they had done this many times before:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::works as hard as he can, even as he sees Lexie getting more and more tired, and feels whatever faint hope he may have had slowly fading into bleak reality::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::just silently works, since it's a lot less painful than suffering the labs again::
SP00KY One: MV: :::She forced her arms to keep scrubbing but she could feel her body giving out:::
SP00KY One: ::::A gruff voice from the onlooking crowd of men yelled at them to "keep the pace up". When they failed to do so, he walked over and put both hands on their back, sending an electrical current through their bodies:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::cries out at the jolt, though this doesn't particularly frighten him; if there's one pain he's used to, it's electricity::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::tears spring to Becky's eyes again though she's fairly used to it as well, or was once, and she looks over at Fiona, hoping that she's okay::
SP00KY One: :::Ice incases the man and he is frozen solid. Another man comes and picks up their sister's and walks towards the edge. :I've had about enough of you and your freezing of my men! This should be a suitable punishment. Goodluck swimming to shore!: He tosses her overboard:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::screams, trying to go to the edge of the boat to see his sister::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::can't believe it for a second and then she tries to run to the edge and find her::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she can feel the anger boiling up inside of her again. Finally she is able to make a fireball. It's a weak one and it misses her target, catching the floor of the ship on fire:::
YarnKittymon: : ::suddenly, the scene completely changes; they're in a very small, very drafty, cold room, in winter-time; it smells strongly, and they're kneeling next to a bed with a sickly little figure in it--Toby sees Lexie, but the others will see whoever's closest to a child-figure in their lives::
SP00KY One: MV: :::She gasps, tears springing to her eyes. She runs over and grabs onto the pale hand of her younger sister. She has strawberry blonde hair but her features are similar to maeve's. Her voice breaks when she speaks::: Julianne?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sees Dan quickly moves towards him:: Dan...? Dan...?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes Lexie's hand as well; softly:: I thought you were...
YarnKittymon: : ::the child coughs several times, then looks up:: I'm sorry, Mommy.
SP00KY One: MV: ::she brushes her hair away from her face, looking a little confused at the word "mommy".::: There is nothing to be sorry about. Its not your fault. I'm the one who should be sorry.
Quantum Catz: BM: Dan...what's wrong with you?
YarnKittymon: : ::the child looks up, coughing again:: I...love you too... Am I...::coughs::...gonna die?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::her eyes widen and she looks like she's going to cry:: No, you're not going to die
SP00KY One: MV: :::she shakes her head, a tear escaping her eye::: I love you too, and no, you aren't going to die. :::even though in her heart she knew it was a lie::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Lexie...
YarnKittymon: : ::the child closes her eyes, then opens them; hoarsely:: I'm scared.
Quantum Catz: BM: There's...there's nothing to be scared of, Dan ::chokes back a sob:: I'm always here, i promised, remember?
SP00KY One: MV: :::she sniffs::: I know you are. But everything is going to be fine. You'll see. :::inside her heart is breaking all over again. How can she say goodbye a second time?:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::lays his forehead on his sister's pillow, trying to hide his tears::
YarnKittymon: : ::softly:: Don't cry, Mommy...::coughs::
SP00KY One: MV: ::she lays down in the bed next to her. Sadly she looks back at her sister.::: I'm not crying. You close your eyes and rest. Everything is going to be fine. I promise. We'll find a way.
YarnKittymon: : ::they hear another voice, Mercy's:: Mommy, stop it! ::the girl suddenly appears, kneeling at the side of the bed across from them, looking at them fiercely::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::backs away from Dan when she sees Mercy, reminded again that this isn't real::
SP00KY One: MV: :::Tears are pouring down her face and she tries to wipe them away. She looks up at Mercy and frowns. Her presence reminds her that this isn't real. However, she cant bring herself to move away from her ailing sister:::
SP00KY One: MV: I'll stay here forever if you promise not to die on me again.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy wipes her eyes with a corner of the blanket:: Being...being trapped in...in bad dreams...it...Mark wouldn't want that...and me and Ida and Jimmy and Jeanie and Adalie and Daddy all need you!
SP00KY One: MV: :::stubbornly she hugs her sister tighter:::
YarnKittymon: : ::after a long pause, more tears come to Mercy's eyes:: I'm *not* sick! Neither is Jimmy! ::she blinks; softly:: One of you, help...
SP00KY One: MV: :::she sniffs and looks at Mercy:: How can I help? I couldn't even help *her*! :::she looks down at her sister::: What am I suppose to do?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks down at Dan and back away again, wrapping her arms around herself::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::very softly, still holding his sister's hand:: It's okay...wherever you are now...you're just a kid...you're happy, right?
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy's eyes widen:: It's a dream! You can change how it ends!
SP00KY One: MV: :::her eyes narrow::: I tried before and couldn't do anything! What makes this different!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::backs away another step:: If it's just a dream then it doesn't *matter*
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy looks at them sadly, and then quite suddenly, they're back in the car, which has rear-ended the ambulance in front of them; Toby's bruised from being propelled into the steering wheel, but the glass of the windshield seems to have held::
YarnKittymon: : ::the gear shifter of the car is kind of mangled, but not from the accident; Toby's hand's still stuck inside; it looks like he destroyed it, whether consciously or unconsciously, but that probably slowed the car a bit::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a scream at the right side of the car, and the noise of Mercy trying to force the door open, though it seems stuck::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::slowly opens his eyes; a bit of blood's coming out of his mouth; softly, almost as if he's still asleep:: Becky? Maeve?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::was thrown up against the seat in front of her and then fell back; is now groaning::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly tries to get his hand out of the gear-box::
SP00KY One: MV: :::her body was thrown up against the dashboard. There was blood trickling down her the side of her face from a nast gash. Her legs, especially her knees, weren't in good shape either and she wasn't moving:::
YarnKittymon: : ::a paramedic tries the doors on the driver's side but neither of them open either; shouts:: Everyone, stay calm!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::her head in her hands, doesn't even seem to hear::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly tries to sit up, finally freeing his hand; his abdomen is bleeding, but he doesn't notice; shakes Maeve's shoulder:: Hey. ::tries to turn to peer into the back seat, but cries out in pain upon doing so::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::her head jerks up when she hears toby cry out - there's blood on her forehead::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::turns back far enough to see Becky; curses softly:: Are you okay?
SP00KY One: MV: :::she doesn't move:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Prob'ly better'n you two...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks back at Maeve again; leans nearer to her, feeling her neck for a pulse, cursing again, and not thinking so clearly:: Lay down, Becky. They'll get us out soon.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::uncertainly:: Is she...okay?
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy is still trying to open the door::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Alive...I'm gonna try to--::gasps::--to fix her legs up...::pulls Maeve's skirt up to expose her knees::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::not looking back:: You're not dying, are you, Becky?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::closes her eyes:: Dun think so...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::starts healing Maeve's knee; the car suddenly shakes, as someone tries to use a crowbar to get the driver's side door open::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::starts to fall unconscious::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is focused on healing Maeve, though he's getting weaker, himself; checks her head to see if it's bleeding profusely::
SP00KY One: MV: ::the intense pain momentarily jars her from her sleep. She jerks backwards a bit but her head is spinning. She feels a little nacious before slumping over again, passing out from the pain. A big nasty gash on her temple.:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::finishes Maeve's knee and is about to work on her face, but pulls himself (rather painfully) to look back at Becky; sees her eyes closed, and yells:: Hey! Becky! Stay with us!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::her eyes jerk open; softly:: I'm fine
YarnKittymon: : ::the driver's side door finally pops open, and the paramedic firmly grabs Toby by the shoulders, dragging him out of the car despite his struggles::
YarnKittymon: : ::the paramedic lays Toby down on the side of the road, and then climbs in to do first-aid on Maeve::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::closes her eyes again::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she finally comes to, moaning a little and batting away the hands that are trying to help her:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::forces himself to sit up when no one's watching; crawls over to the back door and melts a bit of it so it'll open smoothly, and pulls it open, then lays down again, too exhausted to do anything else::
YarnKittymon: : ::the paramedic speaks quietly:: Stay calm, miss. I'm just trying to stop the bleeding.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she moans in response, her eyes still shut. She lifts her hand to swat him away again but if falls limp beside her.:::
Quantum Catz: BM: Bleeding... ::frowns, her eyes still closed::
YarnKittymon: : ::after a bit the other paramedic comes out of the car, stepping carefully over Toby (not looking closely enough to give him a double-take, since he's pretty obviously a man in a dress by this point)--he lifts Becky out of the car::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man bandages Maeve's head and then pulls her out of the car, seeing no need to stabilize her knee before she's free; to the other paramedic:: Someone's gone to call for help; there'll be another ambulance here soon.
YarnKittymon: : ::the other paramedic asks:: How's the crazy--::stops himself, seeing Mercy watching:: Why don't you wait over by that tree, sweetie?
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy doesn't obey::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs:: Was just dream...dizzy...
SP00KY One: MV: :::She whimpers a little::: no hospital
YarnKittymon: : ::Becky's paramedic rightfully shifts his attention to his patient:: What's your name, pretty lady?
YarnKittymon: : ::Maeve's paramedic doesn't talk to her at all:: One knee perfectly healed--just a little blood--but the other...::shakes his head, then goes to try to stop Toby's bleeding::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::frowns slightly at the words 'pretty lady':: Becky...
YarnKittymon: : What day is it, Becky?
Quantum Catz: BM: Friday...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods:: Good. Just rest for a bit, Becky; we'll get you to the hospital in no time. ::goes over to Maeve:: Hey, pretty lady, are you with me?
SP00KY One: MV: :::she opens one eye and then groans, shutting it again:::
YarnKittymon: : ::softly:: What's your name, then?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is still conscious, though exhausted and weakened; looks up at the paramedic; softly:: Are they gonna be all right?
YarnKittymon: : ::the paramedic nods:: Looks like it. You too. You're lucky.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::opens her eyes, looking for Toby and Maeve::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Good. ::turns his head and sees Becky; manages a weak little smile and wave::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she shakes her head but it causes a lot of pain and she winces:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the paramedic looks down at Maeve persistently, splinting her knee with equipment his partner left:: What day is it?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles back rather wearily::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy takes Maeve's hand, kneeling next to her:: Maeve, be OK...
SP00KY One: MV: :::she looks up questioningly at Mercy::: Who are you? Where my mom? Aldez?! :::she tries to look around but her vision swims and she lays her head back down:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::groans slightly::
YarnKittymon: : ::the paramedic shakes his head:: I think you hit your head pretty hard...Maeve, is it? Just rest a little.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she groans::: Where am I?
YarnKittymon: : ::soothingly:: You were in an accident, but you'll be all right. Your friends are going to be fine.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she frowns::: My twin?
YarnKittymon: : ::the paramedic looks at Becky, then Toby, then Maeve again:: Is that what you're calling him now.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs and puts her hand on her head, lying down::
YarnKittymon: : ::another ambulance finally shows up, and they work at getting Maeve and Toby into that one, getting a third stretcher to carry Becky into the ambulance with Mercy's mother::
SP00KY One: MV: ::the frown deepens. She gives into the pounding in her head and closes her eyes, willing everything to go away::: still don't want to go to a hospital.
YarnKittymon: : ::the paramedic who called Becky a pretty lady smiles encouragingly at her:: You'll be better soon, and then you can see your friends. But I'm dying to know--why's the fella in a dress?
YarnKittymon: : ::one of the men carrying Maeve's stretcher shoots back:: Then next time don't ride with a drunk.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::struggles to think of a reason:: Was...he...we dared him...
YarnKittymon: : ::Becky's paramedic laughs, loading her into the ambulance; it's very cramped inside, with two people:: He must like you two ladies a lot, then.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles slightly:: Yeah...
