Quantum Catz: BM: ::is so confused she can hardly tell if she's travelling through time, space or anything but she suddenly appears outside of a ranch-like house and stumbles forward, dropping to her knees. She's so upset her thoughts are probably screaming out and although Fiona has in theory never met Becky as she is now, her mind should be quite similar to that of the REbecca Fiona knew in the labs::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::a rather pretty young woman with shortish blonde hair comes rushing to the door, belatedly rubbing her soapy hands dry on a dishcloth; she hurries out of the house, looking rather worried, and just kneels next to the girl in front of the house, looking closely at her face::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is crying nearly hysterically, thinking again and again of james touching her. She tries to stumble to her feet still very drunk, hardly noticing Fiona but nearly falls over again::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::gets tears in her own eyes, and takes Becky's arm, afraid of what Becky might think if she tried to support her further; softly:: Becky, it's all right. It's me. Fiona. Don't cry.
Quantum Catz: BM: Get off! Get off! ::pulls her arm away from Fiona's grip:: I'm such an idiot - what am i doing? ::covers her face with her hands, sobbing::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::a small girl with straight black hair and green eyes comes rushing from the house towards the two. There are red stripes on her small round face and some wrapping around her slender arms. She's wearing a red t-shirt and faded blue jeans. There are gloves on both of her hands, stopping just at the wrist. She hands back from the two, watching them closely, with a worried look on her face::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::softly, barely glancing at the girl:: Go back inside, Maureen. Becky, come on inside 'til you've slept it off.
Maeve Owens: ME: ::quietly:: Sorry, I just came out to see if I could help...
Quantum Catz: BM: No! I don't-- what-- ::looks confused and looks around:: Where am i?
YarnKittymon: FI: ::smiles slightly, though there's some sadness in her eyes as well:: You're back safe with Fiona. I take care of wayward variants in trouble. Like you.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::starts to cry again and stumbles backwards, away from fiona:: Don't-don't be s-s-stupid - the last i saw you i practi--practiccally wished the doctors to kill you. Why am i here?
YarnKittymon: FI: ::softly:: You didn't wish that, and I know you didn't mean what you *did* say. Maybe your subconscious knew that.
Maeve Owens: ME: ::she slips away quietly, heading toward the house, sensing that she wasn't needed after all and feeling more like she was invading::
Quantum Catz: BM: You're better off not caring - le-least then it doesn't hurt, nothing hurts ::tries to teleport away but only manages to turn semi-transparent and then return to normal, which upsets her even more::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::reaches out and puts an arm around Becky:: Come on inside. Maureen, it's all right if she shares your room, right?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::turns around to face them, nodding her head:: Of course...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is still crying and is too afraid to try and teleport because it reminded her too much of flickering and a sudden strong wave of fear of not being able to hold herself together and disappearing forever, sweeps through her head
YarnKittymon: FI: ::pulls Becky closer:: You're not going anywhere, and you're not going to disappear. I promise.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::doesn't seem very reassured but she leans against Fiona and lets her lead her to the house::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::she follows them inside::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::walking towards the bedrooms; softly:: You're as solid as me or Maureen here. Eight hours' sleep and you'll be a lot better.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sniffling:: Just want to go home...want Toby ::her mind is full of regret and loneliness::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::softly:: I'm so sorry, Becky.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::doesn't seem to hear her:
YarnKittymon: FI: ::opens the door to Maureen's bedroom, leading Becky over to the second bed:: Sit down at least.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sits down on the bed and groans, holding her head in her hands:: God, the world's spinning too fast...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::gently:: That's why you shouldn't drink so much.
Maeve Owens: ME: ::stands there in the doorway watching the two of them, a worried expression still painted across her features::
Quantum Catz: BM: :looks about to start crying again:: Toby hates me now, i know it. He hates me and they'll never be born
YarnKittymon: FI: ::softly, still with an arm around Becky:: How could he hate you?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::shifts uncomfortably in the doorway and after a moment she moves to sit on her bed, pulling her legs up to her chest::
Quantum Catz: BM: Cos i'm stupid and we always argue and i ran off and i can't think of any way to fix things
YarnKittymon: FI: ::looks back at the nervous little girl; softly:: Go get Becky a glass of water, please. ::looks back at Becky; quietly:: But he loves you, right?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::nods, smiling a little at being able to help in some way, she bounds off the bed, and heads out the door::
Quantum Catz: BM: Doesn't matter'f all we do is argue...he'll never listen...he jus' thinks i don' care
YarnKittymon: FI: ::smiles weakly:: I wish I could see him. I'd put some sense into him.
Quantum Catz: BM: :tries to blink back more tears::
YarnKittymon: FI: Stay the night here and then you can try going back to him. I'm sure it will work out; it has to.
Quantum Catz: BM: 'F i thought we c'ld jus' talk n sort it out i wouldn't've left...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::softly:: He's probably scared to death of losing you, Becky. Maybe he'll change his mind about...everything.
Maeve Owens: ME: ::she comes back in, carefully holding a glass of water in her gloved hand. She walks up to Becky and holds out the glass for her to take:: Here, I hope I didn't put too much ice in it... some people dont like a lot of ice....
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: That's okay - i like it cold
Quantum Catz: BM: ::takes the glass and has a sip from it, wincing at the way the world still seems to be spinning::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::smiles brightly at her and returns to her seat on the bed::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::softly:: You'll feel better once you've had some rest.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::wearily:: Maybe... ::doesn't believe it though::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::she picks up her stuffed rabbit and holds it out to Becky:: You can borrow babs if you want. She's good if you're feelin lonely. ::she smiles::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles warmly at Maureen and takes the rabbit:: Thanks, i think i need it ::thinks again of James and feels almost physically sick::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::her smile widens across her pretty red striped face::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::looks a bit upset herself; softly, to Becky:: Is there anything else I can do to help you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shakes her head, although that makes the world spin even more and she groans::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::hugs Becky, then stands up; smiles at Maureen:: Don't let Becky leave before I see her again, OK?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::wide eyed, she nods, looking back and forth between the two of them::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::weakly:: Did it look to you like i could teleport anywhere? ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::shakes her head:: Not yet, but you might be a bit better in the morning. Well enough to get away...though maybe not *well.* ::smiles slightly:: I'll see you then. I'll be in the kitchen or on the sofa if you need me.
Quantum Catz: BM: 'Kay...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::looks back at Becky sadly and then leaves the bedroom::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::sits there on her bed, tracing the pattern of one red stripe that wraps around her small arm::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::puts her water down and lays back on the bed, clutching the rabbit to her chest::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs, to distract herself from how dizzy she feels:: I met someone once with stripes like you...but she had...these big mouse ears...
Maeve Owens: ME: ::her eyes widen; softly:: Mommy does but I didn't get born with them.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::covers her face with a hand when the pattern on the ceiling starts to swirl:: Where's your mum? How come you're here with Fiona?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::sadly:: She's still on Kitar Island and I'm here because I ran away. Do you think it was my mom you met?
Quantum Catz: BM: I dunno...what was her name?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::looking a little eager:: Her names Paelith. When did you visit? Was she okay? She wasn't upset was she?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::turns her head slightly to look over at Maureen, not quite believing it; softly:: I don't know - it was a...long time ago...
Quantum Catz: BM: How come you ran away?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::frowns, shrugging:: Daddy liked Emma more than me so I ran away. ::she looks sad and a little lost::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::is a bit confused for a minute and then finally sighs:: I'm sure he doesn't - i'm sure he's worried sick about you
Maeve Owens: ME: ::shakes her head:: No, he's happy I'm gone.
Quantum Catz: BM: Why d'you think that? D'he say he would be?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::nods:: Emma doesn't cause as much as trouble as I do. ::she glances down at her gloved hands and flexes her fingers a few times::
Quantum Catz: BM: How d'you cause trouble?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::sadly:: Everything I touch gets demolished. ::with a slight scowl on her face she crosses her arms over her chest, hiding her gloved hands::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::blinks:: Well...'f that's your power...'s not your fault...you're jus' a kid...'m sure your dad would rather you there causing trouble than not at all... ::sighs:: I ran away...cos i thought it would help...somehow...but i think it's just made things worse...
Maeve Owens: ME: ::shrugs:: Even so I dont miss his yelling. But if you went back you could make it not so worse, couldn't you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Maybe.... ::closes her eyes, feeling tired and ill:: Do you have a brother, by the way?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::frowns, shaking her head:: No, it was just me until Emma had to come along. Why?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Doesn't matter...think i need to sleep a bit...don't feel too well...
Maeve Owens: ME: ::looks worried:: Oh, I'm sorry. Here I am babbling on about my problems. Do you want me to get you anything? A cold cloth? more water? or to just shut up? ::laughs nervously::
Quantum Catz: BM: IT's okay...talking made me feel less dizy...i'm just tired now...
Maeve Owens: ME: ::nods:: Okay. Well I hope you feel better when you wake up. ::smiles and lays down herself, pulling her pillow close to her::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::curls up, holding the rabbit tightly against herself; she soon falls asleep although her dreams are troubled by her worries::
