~Friday, August 17, 1928~

YarnKittymon: : ::they've been staying with Mercy's family for a couple days, Toby, at least, sleeping most of the time away, so much that the oldest daughter, Ida, has to sweep around him when she cleans::
YarnKittymon: : ::that morning, Maeve wakes up with Mercy curled up in her arms::
Maeve34: MV: :::she looks down in suprise at the girl curled up in her arms. Carefully she leans over to see if she is still asleep::
YarnKittymon: : ::when she feels Maeve move, Mercy holds onto her, trembling a little::
Maeve34: MV: :::she frowns, pulling Mercy a little closer to her, whispering to her softly::: It's okay.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy whispers:: Why am I a monster? Why are we all monsters?
Maeve34: MV: :::her frown deapens::: You're not a monster Mercy. You haven't hurt anyone.
YarnKittymon: : ::softly:: Mommy does, and Daddy almost killed all of you...and all I knew was how scared and angry and sad and tired all of you were...::hugs Maeve tighter::
Maeve34: MV: :::she rubs her back::: You father didn't almost get us killed Mercy. He saved us. Your daddy is a hero. And I'm sorry that you had to feel all of that. But everything is okay now.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy nods, then kisses Maeve on the cheek before pulling out of Maeve's embrace and standing:: I'll go make breakfast.
Maeve34: MV: :::is completely stunned for a moment, and then nods::: Okay. Why dont I come help you?
YarnKittymon: : You can stay here with your friends if you want. ::glances down at them::
Maeve34: MV: :::shrugs:: I think they're sleeping. They probably wont be much fun.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is sleeping fitfully, sprawled out on much of the floor::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::has been sleeping a lot since they got there as well, although she doesn't look deeply asleep::
YarnKittymon: : ::softly:: I'll just be slicing bread; I won't be much fun either.
Maeve34: MV: :::smiles::: Oh, okay then. Maybe I should just stay here and make my knee happy by not moving.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy nods, then walks off::
Maeve34: MV: :::sighs, laying back down::: I wonder what day it is.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mumbles:: Friday, i think..
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida, Mercy's older sister, who looks rather like their father and not at all like their mother; she's holding a metal box, and strides over to the door to the only other room in the tiny apartment; raps, looking over at Maeve and Becky, only slightly apologetically:: Adalie! Dad forgot his lunch again!
YarnKittymon: : ::through the door, a small girl's voice murmurs:: I'm coming; lemme get dressed.
Maeve34: MV: :::looks around quizzically:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida smiles warmly at Maeve, pulling her short hair back from her face; softly:: Did I wake you?
Maeve34: MV: :::shakes her head::: uh, no. I was already up.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::soflty:: I was awake too
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida smiles:: Are you feeling any better?
YarnKittymon: : ::a girl not much older than Mercy comes out of the bedroom, dressed in ragged but clean clothes, like the rest of the family; she takes the lunch pail from her sister, then walks off silently, not wanting to interrupt the "adults"::
Maeve34: MV: :::her eyes follow the girl until she leaves the room.:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida looks at Maeve hopelessly, then shrugs:: How about you, Becky? How are you feeling?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Not as tired as before, which's always good
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida grins:: Heaven knows you've all slept enough.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: Yeah, we kinda needed it
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida smiles back, then shakes her head:: I need to dress the other children; I'm sorry. Jimmy will fetch the newspaper from Mr. Amiston in about an hour, but other than that there's not much to keep you amused...
Maeve34: MV: :::still staring at the empty doorway:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida goes back into the bedroom, silently::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy comes back out a few minutes later with a few slices of burned toast, with a tiny bit of plum jam on top; it's all they have::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles at mercy::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy smiles back, bringing the toast over to them:: I hope it's OK.
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm sure it's fine
Maeve34: MV: :::she takes a slice of the offered toast and smiles::: Perfect. :::she eats her slice::: Thanks.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy grins:: Well, I hope you don't mind jam, after coming home so sticky...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::groans softly, and slowly sits up, blinking::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks over at him:: Hey
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles weakly at Becky, and gives Maeve a little wave:: 'Morning.
Maeve34: MV: :::waves back:::

Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks over at him:: Hey
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles weakly at Becky, and gives Maeve a little wave:: 'Morning.
Maeve34: MV: :::waves back:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::yawns, stretching, then leaning forward a bit, curling up a little::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy offers the toast to Toby and Becky::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: Thanks ::takes a slice::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes a slice, too, nibbling at it, slowly::
SP00KY One: MV: :::: finishes eating her slice and zones out a little bit :::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy yawns, too, leaning against the wall, silently::
SP00KY One: MV: :::smiles over at Mercy and pats the space on the blanket next to her::: Still tired? Did you get enough sleep?
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy sits down next to Maeve:: No...::exhales deeply::
SP00KY One: MV: :::smirks::: Then maybe you should go back to sleep?
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy doesn't reply::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly, looking down at his half-eaten piece of toast:: How would you feel about--
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy suddenly shrieks, grabbing Maeve, hard, interrupting Toby::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she jumps and then tries to calm her::: What? What is it Mercy?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Mercy, worriedly::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida comes out of the bedroom, looking alarmed:: Mercy!
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy starts to cry, and then yells again, kicking:: No!
SP00KY One: MV: ::::she tries to pull away from Mercy, looking over at Ida and having absolutely no idea what to do:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida comes closer, shaking her head helplessly:: Hold her down...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::moves to help stop Mercy kicking out::
SP00KY One: MV: :::her mouth drops open and she shakes her head slightly. Looking worriedly at Mercy:::
YarnKittymon: : ::just as suddenly as she started, Mercy goes limp, whimpering, her eyes closed::
SP00KY One: MV: :::leans over her, whispering softly::: Mercy?
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy whimpers:: Make it better...
SP00KY One: MV: :::softly:: Make what better? What happened?
YarnKittymon: : ::a few pairs of frightened eyes look out from the bedroom doorway, but the children don't come closer::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy tries to pull loose of her sister's grip, and Becky's if she got ahold of her:: I don't know! Make it better!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::tries to hold onto Mercy; worriedly:: You need to explain, Mercy, or we can't help you
YarnKittymon: : ::softly:: 'was scared and alone and...somone gonna hurt...
SP00KY One: MV: :::softly::: Whose alone Mercy? Your mom?
YarnKittymon: : ::whimpers:: I don't know...Maeve, Becky, fix it...
Quantum Catz: BM: If you...know who it is...i could maybe find them
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy stops struggling again, sobbing:: I don't know...all I knew was I was scared...thought...thought...
SP00KY One: MV: Thought what?
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy's quiet for a while, then, softly:: ...thought I was gonna die...
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida cringes:: Mercy, hush.
SP00KY One: MV: :::bites her lip, looking sadly at Mercy:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: If someone's in trouble...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: But she doesn't know who it is
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy starts to cry again::
SP00KY One: MV: :::quietly::: maybe it's her mother?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs:: Well there's not much we can do for *her* is there?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: They don't kill people in asylums, do they?
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida glares at them all:: All of you, hush.
SP00KY One: MV: :::shrugs::: If they're anything like prisons. :::looks at Ida curiously::: Anything you would like to tell us?
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida narrows her eyes at them:: I don't like to picture Mercy's mother being killed.
SP00KY One: MV: :::sighs:: Well, that would make two of us.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns:: So we just wait 'til someone turns up dead, before we can do anything?
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida looks at Toby fiercely, about ready to slap him::
SP00KY One: MV: We could always break into the assylum.
Quantum Catz: BM: We don't even know it was her mother
SP00KY One: MV: Who else could it be? :::looks over at Ida:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida shrugs helplessly, looking around:: The rest of the family's at work, except Father's at work, and Adelie went to take his lunch...
SP00KY One: MV: :::sofly::: Maybe we should go look for Adelie. On our way to the assylum.
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida turns pale:: You don't think...
SP00KY One: MV: :::shrugs::: I don't *want* to think it but it could be possible.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::soberly:: If something *had* happened, what if we can't find her?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Hey, i can find anyone as long as they're not too far away
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns:: So? What are you gong to give up without even trying? It still could be her mother!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::just sighs::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida looks up at them, rather concerned, and vaguely angry, though she speaks softly:: Do you think that's what's happened? That some monster took Adelie?
SP00KY One: MV: :::shrugs again::: The only person that could possible know anything knows nothing!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Mercy are you sure you can't tell who it was?
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy looks up at Becky, wide-eyed:: You mean...maybe I could help...?
Quantum Catz: BM: All you need to do is tell me who to look for
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy closes her eyes, silently, trembling::
YarnKittymon: : ::after a minute or two, Mercy starts to shake more violently, whimpering::
SP00KY One: MV: :::soflty::: Mercy, it's okay, you're here with us.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy inhales deeply; softly:: Quiet...please...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks away, frowning::
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy speaks softly, not opening her eyes:: ...worried about Daddy...
SP00KY One: MV: :::quietly::: Okay, so then we find Adelie, then her father and after that we check on her mother. Lets just cover all the bases!
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy opens her eyes; quietly:: He...he wouldn't hurt a little girl, would he? ::rubs her arm::
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns:: You think it was a little girl that was hurt?
YarnKittymon: : ::softly, not looking up:: It's Adelie...I know it's Adelie...and she thinks he's going to kill her...but he wouldn't, would he?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks pale but doesn't voice her opinion:: I should find her
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida draws her sister into an embrace::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::firmly:: He wouldn't hurt a little girl but he might hurt *you,* Becky. You can't go alone.
Quantum Catz: BM: Well, if he's distracted by me then he *won't* be hurting her, will her?
SP00KY One: MV: We should all go. Safety in numbers.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::gets to his feet, gritting his teeth as he does so::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly, to Toby:: You're not healthy enough to be going anywhere
SP00KY One: MV: maybe you could stay here and take care of Mercy?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I can't let you get into any trouble without me, Becky...
SP00KY One: MV: :::rolls her eyes, sighing::: Can we not stand around debating this for hours? We may not have much time. Lets just go. :::gets to her feet and hobbles toward the door:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: I'm pretty good at getting *out* of trouble though. I always managed before and i can do it again ::sighs and looks at Maeve:: Not that you're in much of a better state than him, right enough...
SP00KY One: MV: :::shrugs::: I'll manage. And I think its safe to say that we can all take care of ourselves. Come on. Lets go. :::turns the corner::: Ida, which way does she go to get to her Dad's work?
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida quietly gives directions, looking troubled:: It's not even a mile away...she shouldn't've come to any trouble...
SP00KY One: MV: :::sighs::: Well, lets hope that she didn't and that its someone else.
YarnKittymon: : ::Mercy looks up at Maeve; softly:: You can do it.
SP00KY One: MV: :::smiles down at her::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I'm going to go ahead, if they aren't somewhere obvious then it could take ages otherwise
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes a step forward quickly, looking at Becky with a mixture of fear and pain in his eyes:: Come right back, then...
SP00KY One: MV: :::hobbles out of the house and down the street, following Ida's directions:::: In the meantime we'll go on foot. Maybe someone has seen her.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly at Toby but doesn't say anything before she teleports to find Adelie::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::follows, even slower than Maeve; after a little while, he looks around to see no one's watching, then forms a walking stick out of a stray plank, leaning heavily on it for support; glances at Maeve:: You want one?
YarnKittymon: : ::Becky finds herself in the corner of the room the man who wanted to sell them had taken them to; Adalie is huddled there, tied up, gagged, and sobbing::
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns::: I dont know. Are you feeling up to making another one?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods instantly:: If you think it'd help. ::before Maeve can answer, forms another walking stick for her::
SP00KY One: MV: ::smiles and takes the walking stick::: Thanks.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitates, looking around in case someones about to jump out and try to tie her up::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man who took them before is sitting on the floor, leaning against the wall, directly opposite Becky and Adalie; softly:: That's some trick. I'd stay where you are.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks around, worried:: She should be back by now, shouldn't she?
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods, looking around for anyone that might have seen Adelie go by:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Why's that?
YarnKittymon: : ::the sidewalks are sparsely populated with people who seem to be on their way to what they seem to think is important business::
SP00KY One: MV: :::shouts out to the crowd::: Hey! Has anyone seen a little girl pass through? :::giving them Adelie's discription:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smirks, getting to his feet:: I'm going to have you again, or I might have to do something unpleasant to that little tyke.
YarnKittymon: : ::a few people look up at Maeve curiously, but no one offers to help::
Quantum Catz: BM: Yeah, you keep believing that, mister ::edges towards Adelie::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man makes a dash for Adalie, pulling out a knife as he does so::
SP00KY One: MV: :::mutters::: Just great. How are we going to find out where they are?
Quantum Catz: BM: Hey! ::runs for Adelie too::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: Becky's supposed to come back, remember? ::though he doesn't sound like he believes it himself::
SP00KY One: MV: :::grunts::: Do you really believe that?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly, sounding more worried than angry:: If she gets hurt, I'll kill her...
SP00KY One: MV: :::grunts again:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks around, frowning::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man isn't as fast as Becky::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::tries to grab Adelie to teleport away before the man can grab her::
SP00KY One: MV: :::looking around also, and looks over at Ida::: She wouldn't have taken any short cuts would she?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man grabs Becky's arm, roughly, looking ready to use his knife on her:: You came to keep her company, huh?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glares at him:: Whatever ::tries to kick him::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida sighs:: I don't know...I don't even know if she made it to Dad or not...and I don't want to ask him; he's had enough trouble this week...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man yells as Becky kicks his shin, and slices at her arm::
SP00KY One: MV: Well there has to be some *clue* as to where she went!
Quantum Catz: BM: Ow! ::jerks her arm away though she doesn't let go off Adelie with her other hand, hoping the man'll let go::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida cringes, looking around frantically:: Who would want to take her?
SP00KY One: MV: Someone with a grudge against your father?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man just tightens his already-strong grip on Becky:: Stop this, or someone might get hurt.
YarnKittymon: : ::softly:: He'd never hurt a fly.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sharply:: Well let me take Adelie back to her family then
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods:: That might be true but maybe someone wants to get back at him for something. Being overly nice? Jealous? Wanting something that he has?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smirks:: Are you kidding? He's the one I want.
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida shakes her head helplessly:: I don't know...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::uncertainly:: He?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man narrows his eyes:: I guess he's your father too...?
Quantum Catz: BM: You mean Oswald? ::tries to pull her arm away:: What have you got against him?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man shrugs:: Is that his name. Stop struggling, if you don't want me to hurt the little girl.
Quantum Catz: BM: Let go of me and i'll stop struggling
YarnKittymon: : ::the man narrows his eyes:: I'm not so stupid as to let you get away again.
SP00KY One: MV: ::::she looks down a sideway street, lost in thought::: Someone who might want something from him. Thats where we came from. The guy. :::getting exctited::: maybe that guy followed us and he has her!
Quantum Catz: BM: You're crazy and you're an idiot - you didn't keep us one day before - you think you'd do any better this time
YarnKittymon: TY: ::inhales sharply; softly:: Maybe...
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida looks a little dazed:: What man?
SP00KY One: MV: :::turns down the street::: Well, there is only one way to find out.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks at Becky fiercely; it seems he has to restrain himself from killing her:: A girl who can vanish at will would make a fair show too.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::dryly:: It's a shame i plan to vanish with Adelie soon, isn't it?
SP00KY One: MV: :::makes her way back to the apartment, not even looking back to see if they were following her:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida is right behind Maeve; Toby is following at a distance, struggling to keep up::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man speaks softly, looking right at Becky:: Unless I kill you to prove I'm serious...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks straight back at him:: People have threatened me with worse
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smirks:: Oh? Well, I wouldn't do worse in front of a child. ::suddenly swipes the knife at Becky's arm again, aiming more to get her away from Adalie than anything else::
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks up at the door to the apartment and turns around to look at the others::: So now what? Just bust in?
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida frowns, whispering:: Are you sure it's the right one?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::pulls her arm away, just missing being cut again, and presses herself closer to Adelie::
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie looks at Becky, cross-eyed because Becky's so close; she still looks terrified::
SP00KY One: MV: :::whispers back::: Yeah, my memory isn't *that* bad. :::tries the handle, pressing her ear to the door:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the door is locked, but the door's thin enough, Maeve can hear everything going on inside::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly, to Adelie:: Don't be scared, it's okay
SP00KY One: MV: Oh yeah, definitely the right door. I think I just heard Becky's voice.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::slowly comes up the stairs after them, taking them one at the time, noisily::
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida turns white:: Are they okay?
SP00KY One: MV: :::shrugs::: Only one way to find out. :::;forms a fireball and tries melt off the doorknob:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man hears something going on outside, and pushes Becky and Adalie against the wall, holding the knife to Becky's throat with his free hand, then turning back to look at the now-smoking door::
SP00KY One: MV: :::stops and looks to the others::: Anyone want to kick this in?
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida shakes her head mutely::
YarnKittymon: : ::Toby catches up with them, looking rather panicked::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::swallows, reminding herself to thank maeve later for upsetting the kidnapper::
SP00KY One: MV: :::rolls her eyes and sighs::: Well then there goes nothing. ::::pushes at the door:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man sees the door open, and presses the knife closer to Becky, looking back at Maeve:: Don't move!
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie starts to sob::
SP00KY One: MV: ::sighs again::: Lovely
YarnKittymon: TY: ::peers through the door, gripping his walking-stick so tightly his knuckles turn white; softly:: Becky...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::squeezes Adalie's arm, trying to comfort her as much as feasibly possible in the circumstances::
SP00KY One: MV: What? You just didn't get enough of us kicking your butt the last time you wanted to try for a second?
Quantum Catz: BM: Maeve, don't bug the guy when he's got a knife at my throat, please
SP00KY One: MV: :::waves her hand::: Oh, just slug him, it doesnt take much to knock him out.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks back at Maeve coldly:: Either of you moves a muscle and I'm going to slice her throat open.
SP00KY One: MV: Well, now if you did that then there wouldn't be much stopping me from frying you where you stand, now would it? Unless your quick enough to grab the kid but I'm thinking no.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Maeve, don't...
SP00KY One: MV: :::holds up her hands::: What? I haven't moved a mustle.
YarnKittymon: : ::coldly:: Your tongue is a muscle. Run get their father. Now.
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns::: I cant run. In case you havent noticed. The one you are holding with the knife there would be the fastest.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I'm not moving, he'll just threaten Adelie instead
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: Take me instead. I'm in no shape to get away.
SP00KY One: MV: :::rolls her eyes::: Yes, but it would be *easier* for you to go. And quicker.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at them both:: I'm not moving
YarnKittymon: : ::Ida looks at the scene, trembling, and then runs away without another word::
SP00KY One: MV: ::whines::: It would be safer for *everyone* if you were the one to teleport there and back!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::tries to pull her arm out of his grasp again::
SP00KY One: MV: :::mutters::: Isn't going to leave but tries to pull free anyway. Stubborn.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man's grip loosens just slightly, though not enough to release Becky; he compensates by pressing the knife harder against Becky's throat, maybe enough to draw a little blood::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quickly, yelling:: What do you want? Money? We'll get you money!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man narrows his eyes:: I want their father.
SP00KY One: MV: Well, if you want him then send her to get him. He'll be back before you can blink an eye.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man glares:: Not without someone else in return.
SP00KY One: MV: You got two more options over here buddy! And neither one of us can move very fast!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: You don't really believe this'll work, do you? You couldn't keep us captive forever even if you wanted to
YarnKittymon: : ::the man looks them over, then nods at Maeve:: Get over here, and put your face against the wall.
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns at him but does what he says:::: Okay. Sure.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man edges closer to Maeve, and then releases the knife from Becky's throat, pressing its tip against Maeve's back instead, still holding Becky::
SP00KY One: MV: Hello Mr. Wall, how are you?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Maeve, don't...
SP00KY One: MV: What? I'm just trying to make friends with the wall!
YarnKittymon: : ::the man suddenly lets go of Becky, grabbing for Adeline as he does so::
SP00KY One: MV: :::tries to stop him::: Hey! Nope, she wasnt the bargain!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::tries to grab adelie as well::
SP00KY One: MV: :::reaches back with her arm to grab the guy and pull him back:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Becky gets to Adalie before the man does::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at maeve for a split second, silently asking her a question::
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods her head:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::teleports away with Adelie::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::only as far as the street along from the house though as that's about as far as she can manage::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man yells, then grabs Maeve's arm, pressing down on her back with the knife, though he doesn't have much leverage::
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie starts to cry, harder::
SP00KY One: MV: ::: she winces and grits her teeth. Balancing on one leg, she takes the crutch and swings it back towards the guy:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man yells, falling to the ground, dropping the knife away from Maeve's back::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::quickly kneels down to pull the gag away from Adelie's mouth; murmurs:: It's okay, you're safe now
SP00KY One: MV: :::groans:: See? Drops like a ton of bricks everytime.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::steps forward weakly; his walking stick is shorter than it had been, but he still uses it as support; softly:: Are you all right?
SP00KY One: MV: Yeah, just a little scratch. :::although she could be lying since she cant see it herself::: What are we going to do with him?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks down at the man, a little pale; softly:: Is he dead?
SP00KY One: MV: ::frowns, then a little sarcastically::: Yes Toby, I killed him with the walking stick.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::removes the gag and moves on to untying Adelie::
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie hugs Becky as soon as her hands are untied, still shaking::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: But I might have. ::looks down at the man, who has a wooden knife buried in his stomach::
Quantum Catz: BM: Ssh, it's okay ::hugs her back::
SP00KY One: ((how the hell did that happen??))
SP00KY One: ((how do i always end up killing someone!!!))
YarnKittymon: ((Toby has a knack for throwing weapons...and making weapons, come to think of it ^_-))
Quantum Catz: ((lol))
SP00KY One: ((oooh. okay i was about to say.))
SP00KY One: ((i couldnt have possible made him stick his own knife into him))
YarnKittymon: ((Plus his wasn't wooden))
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks down at the man::: I didn't do it.
YarnKittymon: : ::the man groans softly::
SP00KY One: MV: Are you going to let him bleed to death?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::suddenly drops to his knees; in a sort of angry voice:: If you're hurt, get over here, Maeve.
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie presses closer to Becky; softly:: Am I safe now?
SP00KY One: MV: ::::hesitates::: Umm, no, thats okay.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Yeah, you are ::looks back towards where Maeve and Toby are though, rather worriedly:: I should...i should get you home
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie nods, still crying; a police officer suddenly runs by, towards the apartments::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::angrily:: We took you this far; we're not going to lose you!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shouts after the policeman:: Hey! Wait!
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer looks back at Becky:: I'm on my way to a call.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she jumps a little::: Okay, there is no reason to get hostile. :::still hesitant to go near him in his angry mood:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::hesitantly:: To a house just along there? With a hostage?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::in a more restrained voice:: Come on. You don't want the wound to get infected.
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer nods slightly:: Two, from what I heard. Do you know anything about it?
Quantum Catz: BM: My friends...they're there. He has a knife ::worriedly:: Don't just go barging in...i don't want them to get hurt ::presses her hand to her arm, where the man cut her::
SP00KY One: MV: :::sighs:: It hurts enough thank you.
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer nods, drawing his gun:: An ambulance should be here soon.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: If it gets infected, you'll get a fever, and you'll probably die.
SP00KY One: MV: :::grumbles::: Fine! have it your way! :::hobbles over to him:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::tries to get to his feet on his own, but can't do it; has to use Maeve for support::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::uncertainly:: Um...okay... ::bites her lip, remembering the last time they ended up in a hospital::
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie doesn't say anything::
SP00KY One: MV: :::manages to stay balanced using the crutch::: Are you sure you have enough strength? Maybe you should just wait.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I don't think waiting will make it any better, Maeve. ::puts his hand over Maeve's back, which is bleeding a fair amount, and painfully mends the flesh::
SP00KY One: MV: :::moans::: owe
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer comes in just then, aiming his gun at Toby:: Let her go!
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly, to Adelie:: I should get you home ::though her eyes are looking in the direction of the policeman::
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie speaks softly, rather frightened:: Maybe...you should see if they're all right...
SP00KY One: MV: :::shakes her head::: Not him! The dead guy!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::groans softly::
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks over at the Officer::: He tried to kill me. :::looks over at Toby::: He stopped him the only way he could. Classic case of self defense! Case closed, we're going home. Bye!
YarnKittymon: ::the officer looks down at the man, then back at Maeve:: What happened here?
SP00KY One: MV: :::turns around to look at Toby::: What? whats wrong?
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer nods:: We'll need to take you in for questioning, ma'am. You, too, sir.
SP00KY One: MV: What? Why?
SP00KY One: MV: :::looking panicked:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: I can't just leave you here :: stands up:: Are you okay to walk? ::although she still glances back even as she turns away::
YarnKittymon: : ::the girl nods silently::
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer frowns:: If you're innocent, you have nothing to fear. We just need to sort out what's happened.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::takes Adelie's hand and starts to walk back to her house, rather quickly::
SP00KY One: MV: I just told you what happened.
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie follows as quickly as she can::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: I think that man needs help...::looks down at the man on the floor::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks down at Adelie:: Are you sure you're okay? It must've been really scary for you...
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer holsters his gun, not turning his back to them, and kneels next to the man, checking him::
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie nods, looking up at Becky silently::
SP00KY One: MV: Maybe we could come to the station in the morning? We've been through a lot and would just like to go home. :::smiles sweetly at them:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: This's our fault really...we just seem to draw trouble where-ever we go
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer shakes his head:: No dice. If you're hurt we can talk in the hospital.
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie nods again, and speaks quietly:: He wanted to hurt Daddy.
SP00KY One: MV: :::shakes her head::: Nope, in no need ot a hospital.
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer nods:: Then we'll talk now. What are your names?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::raises her hand to her throat where the knife nicked her:: Cos he tried to help us ::sighs::Your dad should be safe now
SP00KY One: MV: ::glances at Toby quickly and then back over to the officer::: Ummm.. Tracy, Tracy Lord.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: Um...Terrance...Quinn.
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer narrows his eyes at them:: What are you hiding?
YarnKittymon: : ::Becky and Adalie hear rapid footsteps behind them, running towards them; Adalie tenses::
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns::: Hiding? What makes you think we are hiding anything?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::stops and turns round to face the person, pushing Adelie behind her::
YarnKittymon: : You had a bit of trouble remembering your own name...
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald is there, looking astonished at Becky::
YarnKittymon: : ::Adalie runs out from behind Becky and runs to her father, jumping into his arms, hugging him silently::
SP00KY One: MV: ::flatly::: I'm in shock. :::she shrugs her shoulders:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: We both got pretty scared...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::blinks when she realises who it is and relaxes slightly:: I need to go ::runs back towards the man's house::
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald watches Becky go, too surprised to thank her::
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer frowns:: Did he hurt either of you?
SP00KY One: MV: :::quickly::: No.
YarnKittymon: : Then what happened?
SP00KY One: MV: ::::sighs, and looks over at Toby, silently asking him how much of the story they should share:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks rather defeated:: It's a long story...I don't think we're up to telling it...
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods in agreement:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer goes over to look out the window:: Where is that ambulance?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::slows as she walks up the stairs and peers around the door::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she sways on her feet a little, her good leg getting tired of supporting all of her weight::: Tired. Just want to go *home*.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::runs into the room when Maeve sways:: Are you okay? He didn't hurt you did he?
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer looks back at Becky, a bit surprised::
SP00KY One: MV: :::smiles weakly at Becky::: No, I'm fine. But they're planning on taking us in for questioning. I'm getting tired of standing actually.
Quantum Catz: BM: Lean on me ::moves over to help Maeve; looks at the officer:: Thank you so much for helping them
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer nods, tipping his hat:: I think they need to wait for the ambulance...
SP00KY One: MV: :::hesitates::: I think Toby needs it more than me.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::instantly turns to Toby:: Are *you* okay? Do you need help?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks a little pale; nods:: I'll be all right. ::tries to stand up straighter::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::puts her arm around his waist, although since they don't want to end up back in the hospital, she tries to make it look like just a girl with her arm around her boyfriend, rather than her supporting him::
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer frowns:: Go on downstairs; I think the ambulance will be there by the time you get there.
SP00KY One: MV: ::hobbles off towards the door, leaning more heavily on the crutch:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glances at the officer and then at Toby, wondering how they're going to get out of ending up back in the hospital, with Toby and Maeve the way they were::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Let's get out of here...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::moves after Maeve::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she gets to the stair and starts to go down them. She puts the stick on the next step but leans over to far and misses it. Her wonderful cordination strikes again and she stumbles down the short flight of stairs::::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::gasps::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she sits up and groans::: I'm alright! :::pauses for a moment, wincing::: Owe that hurt.
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer runs after them, pushing past Becky and Toby to check on Maeve:: Are you sure you're not hurt?
SP00KY One: MV: :::waves him away::: Yes! Been much worse. :::her knee is throbbing but other than a few scrapes she's fine:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer looks rather torn, but after a moment, he just says:: Wait out front for the paramedics. I need to watch your captor.
SP00KY One: MV: :::grumbles::: Sure, whatever you say. :::struggles to get to her feet:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the officer helps her up, then goes back upstairs::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly, to Toby:: Come on ::starts to move down the stairs::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::leans more heavily against Becky, holding the handrail with his other hand::
SP00KY One: MV: :::leans against the wall and lets out a sigh:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::very quietly:: We need to get out of town.
Quantum Catz: BM: How do we do that? You two are in no state
YarnKittymon: TY: ::a little sharply, though he's still whispering:: I'm not going to get any better in a dirty hospital!
SP00KY One: MV: :::slowly she limps out to the street:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mutters:: But you can hardly walk
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly, leaning against Becky:: Do I feel warm to you?
Quantum Catz: ((u what?)
YarnKittymon: ((It's American talk for "Do I feel like I have a fever?"))
Quantum Catz: ((ah, ok ^^; ))
Quantum Catz: BM: Why? Do you think you do? ::reaches up to touch his forehead::
YarnKittymon: : ::it's hard to tell, but he might have a bit of a fever::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: Maybe...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: If you're getting a fever then you really shouldn't go running around to get out of town
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: There's no such thing as penicillin here...
Quantum Catz: BM: Can't you make some?
YarnKittymon: TY: Maybe...I don't know how it works, though...that helps a lot...
YarnKittymon: : ::an ambulance without a siren pulls up right in front of them::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::worriedly:: I'm sorry...if my stupid powers would just completely come back already...i could get you some
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I didn't...didn't mean to worry you. I just thought maybe...maybe we should get to the island pretty quick...maybe there's a healer there...
Quantum Catz: BM: Don't stay that, you're temperature isn't really even that high ::suddenly hugs him::
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns::: Maybe you should go back to the hospital.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::hugs Becky tightly:: They can't do much anyway. I just want to get away from here. But I'm sure it's nothing. I shouldn't've said anything.
SP00KY One: MV: :::sighs::: And if it turns out to be more than nothing? Then what? Should we take that chance?
YarnKittymon: : ::the paramedic comes out of the ambulance, looking them up and down:: Are you the ones who phoned?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Maybe we *should* get out of here. ::looks at the paramedic:: There's someone upstairs needs help i think
YarnKittymon: : ::the paramedic nods:: Thank you. ::goes upstairs::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: They'll arrest us if they put it all together.
SP00KY One: MV: Yeah, but they'll have to catch us first. They'll be busy with the dead guy.. I say we make a run for it.
Quantum Catz: BM: Neither of you can run. What do we do? Steal another car and make a break for it? Neither of you can drive either
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I was going to suggest a train...
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods::: Thats good. Lets just get away from here... before they either send us to the hospital or jail.
Quantum Catz: BM: Come on then, standing here isn't going to do us much good ::holds on tightly to Toby so he can lean on her as they walk::
SP00KY One: MV: :::limps along after them:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::leans against Becky; softly:: I'm so sorry.
Quantum Catz: BM: What for?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: For worrying everyone. I'm just...::shakes his head::
Quantum Catz: BM: I'd rather you worried me over nothing than kept something a secret
SP00KY One: MV: :::stops for a moment to rest and then continues on.:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still quietly, but loud enough for Maeve to hear:: We don't have any cash, either...
SP00KY One: MV: :::huffs:: Maybe... we can.. umm.. win their sympathy and they'll let us on.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Cos that always works so well for us
SP00KY One: MV: Hey you never know.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: Do we even know which way the train *is*? I guess we could just listen for the whistle...
SP00KY One: MV: As long as we're going far away from the scene of the crime, I dont care right now.
Quantum Catz: BM: I'm thinking more about getting away from the ambulance right now...
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald is a little bit ahead of them, carrying his daughter; he turns around and sees them all, and walks towards them, quickly:: Becky, Maeve, Toby...
SP00KY One: MV: Ah, and we may be saved once again.
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald blinks:: Saved from what?
SP00KY One: MV: :::wryly::: an ambulance
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: We seem to be terrified of the things
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald holds Adalie tighter; softly, looking a little worried:: Thank you for saving her...
SP00KY One: MV: :::smiles at Becky::: Yes, Becky, our hero :::glances over her shoulder::: Um, could we move *around* the corner?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::glances back as well:: Might be a good idea
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald nods, stepping that way:: Are you all right?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Oswald; weakly:: I'm sorry, but we really need to get away from here
SP00KY One: MV: :::makes her way slowly around the corner:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald nods, sighing:: I know the feeling, but we've no place to go. I guess you do, though.
SP00KY One: MV: :::leans against the wall for a moment::: We aren't far enough a way. We need to keep moving.
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald shifts Adalie in his arms and then continues on alongside them::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Oswald:: Don't suppose you could give us directions to the train station
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald nods:: It's not far at all. I just wish I could do something to help you...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: You've done enough for us
SP00KY One: MV: :::sadly::: You should go back home. You're family needs you. Besides, if you stick around us much longer who knows what else could happen.
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald hesitates anyway::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::slowly:: Do you have any cash on you?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::nearly elbows him, but thinks better of it since he's injured:: We can't take their money
SP00KY One: MV: :::yawns:::
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald nods, rather hesitantly:: Not enough to get you far, if that's what you're thinking.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::reaches into his pocket; softly:: Maybe you could buy some old jewelry off me. It's junk but you might get a few bucks for it at a pawn shop.
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald looks a little surprised, and shakes his head:: I couldn't...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Toby, since any jewelry he has is usually worth more than a few bucks:: We should hurry before the paramedics come looking for us ::looks at Oswald:: Please, we can't use jewelry to get on the train
SP00KY One: MV: :::glances over her shoulder:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes several necklaces out of his pocket; they're sparkly and shiny, identical to the kind he normally makes; softly:: It's some stuff my parents left me. You can trust us; ask Mercy. Please.
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald grabs the jewelry and slips it into his pocket impulsively, hoping he's not seen:: Only because you've done so much...::has a hard time getting to his wallet and keeping ahold of Adalie at the same time, but eventually
YarnKittymon: gets it out; hands them its contents, all of $6::
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald looks at the three of them for a moment:: The train's just down this road; turn right at the stoplight. I'm sorry I haven't enough to get you a cab.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles at Oswald:: That doesn't matter, thanks for your help
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks over at Oswald and smiles::: Yes, without you I dont think we would have made it.
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald sighs:: Without you....well, you rescued my Mercy, no matter what else happened. Thank you. Be careful.
SP00KY One: ((dont you mean Adelie?))
YarnKittymon: ((No; he actually met Adalie; he's thinking that if he hadn't met them, they wouldn't be in this mess now))
YarnKittymon: ((Not that he revealed those thoughts to anyone ^_^; ))
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods::: Tell Mercy we said goodbye.
SP00KY One: ((when did we save Mercy?))
YarnKittymon: ((When she went missing before; Becky "found" her, though she wasn't really lost, anyway...))
SP00KY One: ((oh))
YarnKittymon: : ::Oswald nods:: Of course. Take care, all of you.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: You too
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods back, leaning against Becky; softly:: Thanks.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at Toby:: Come on, let's get out of here
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods, slowly walking off::


YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: We might be able to make it to Virginia, anyway.
Maeve Owens: MV: Better than staying here
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Yeah, but you two both need to rest
Maeve Owens: MV: :::waves her hand in the air::: Rest? Who needs rest? It's highly over rated.
YarnKittymon: TY: We'll sleep on the train. I can make some more jewelry and you can sell it so we can take the train all the way to the West Coast. ::under his breath:: And Mercy's father thought it was stolen...
Quantum Catz: BM: I guess that's a better reason for him to have for us being on the run than the truth
YarnKittymon: : ::the station comes into view in just a few minutes of walking, even with Maeve and Toby being so slow::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::holds out her hand::: Hand over some and lets get to it then. Taking a train all the way over there has to be less dangerous than hitchhiking. And maybe even less of a chance of us getting into trouble.
Quantum Catz: BM: We don't have time for that here - they could be looking for us already
Maeve Owens: MV: :::frowns::: Oh yeah, that's true. :::hobbles a little faster::: Come on people, pick up the pace!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::a little sharply:: I'm going as fast as I can.
Maeve Owens: MV: Okay, no need to get hostile again.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: Let's not start arguing
YarnKittymon: TY: ::frowns; heads to the ticket counter, then pauses, and gives the $6 to Becky:: Maybe you should...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly and takes the money:: Okay ::she heads over to the ticket counter::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a well-dressed man at the counter; he smiles at Becky:: What can I do for you?
Quantum Catz: BM: Um...how far will $6 get me and my two friends/
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smiles faintly, looking down at a sheet in front of him:: I can't imagine what you'd want to get away from...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::shrugs:: Well, you know...sometimes life just gets a bit much and you want to get away for a while
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks down at the tile floor beneath his feet::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::staring at the entrance they came from:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods:: You want the coach fare, I'm sure...
Quantum Catz: ((they do?))
YarnKittymon: ((I think that's the cheapest fare there is, though I know I wouldn't know if I was from the present day...just because Phoenix doesn't even HAVE a train station :P ))
Quantum Catz: ((we get standard and cheap fares on our trains..but it depends on the time of day which u get ^^; ))
Quantum Catz: BM: Um...yeah...
YarnKittymon: : ::the man nods:: There's a train for New York that leaves in 30 minutes, or one for Richmond in an hour and a half or so.
Quantum Catz: ((where's richmond?))
YarnKittymon: ((Virginia))
YarnKittymon: ((The opposite direction of New York, coincidentally ^_-))
Quantum Catz: BM: ::turns to look at Maeve and Toby::
Maeve Owens: MV: :::sighs::: We're screwed


Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Do we wait for the one for Richmond? We don't have many other options
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods weakly:: I guess so...even if I'd already started to think of New York as home...
SP00KY One: MV: :::sighs::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::turns back to the man:: Can we have three tickets to Richmond then please?
YarnKittymon: : ::the man smiles:: Sure thing. That'll be $5.60, please. ::takes Becky's money and gives her change, and then the tickets:: Enjoy your trip, miss.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Thanks
YarnKittymon: TY: ::goes over to sit down rather heavily in one of the nice seats in the waiting area::
SP00KY One: MV: :::follows Toby over and sits down too::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::walks after them both and sits down next to Toby:: What if they think of coming here looking for us?
SP00KY One: MV: :::takes a swing at a balled up piece of paper with her stick and watches it fly across the room:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly, taking Becky's hand:: I don't know...I'm too tired to run anymore...
SP00KY One: MV: :::she smiles and looks around for another target:::
SP00KY One: MV: :::she finds a little kid's bouncy ball and hops over to it. She hits it with the stick, and watches as it hits the wall and flies past Becky and Toby::: Heads up!
YarnKittymon: : ::a young man gets hit square in the face by the ricocheting ball:: Hey!
Quantum Catz: BM:: Maeve, what are you doing?
SP00KY One: MV: :::throws the stick across the room and plops down on the bench. She looks up at the ceiling and whistles:::
YarnKittymon: : ::the young man goes back to reading his newspaper::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::bends down to pick up the stick when it lands, looking at the three of them::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::does a double-take, and then just stares::
SP00KY One: MV: :::still trying to act innocent:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::twirls the stick once in his hand and then moves towards them, not looking too happy:: Do you even realise how long it took me to find you guys?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::jumps at the sight of her brother, though she doesn't reply::
SP00KY One: MV: :::her head snaps in his direction, and she looks at him strangely.:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::weakly:: Didn't seem long to us.
Quantum Catz: DK: Well, yeah, it wouldn't, would it? What are you playing at Toby? I brought you here to get you *out* of trouble
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks down; quietly:: Long story, and I'm sure not telling it now.
SP00KY One: MV: :::she cocks her head to one side and studies the guy::: Okay, I give. Who is he?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::murmurs:: It's my brother, Dominick, remember?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks at Maeve:: So it's you he went around breaking out of prison then? I can't believe you guys
YarnKittymon: TY: ::glares:: I'd do it again.
YarnKittymon: : ::an older lady sitting several seats down from them looks over::
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods::: ooooh right, I thought I'd seen him somewhere before. I think the last time we met I had really wanted to roast you.
Quantum Catz: DK: You could add me to the list of people you've murdered then could you?
SP00KY One: MV: :::glares at him::: Maybe if you tried to hurt one of us. But if you're not planning to do so then you're safe. :::smiles sarcastically at him:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::glares:: We really *are* going to jail.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks around and then holds out his hand, muttering:: Touch my hand, now, before i decide just to leave you to get caught
SP00KY One: MV: :::crosses her arms::: And just for the record, I wasn't *really* going to roast you. I was just trying to... scare you. :::looks at him skeptically::: Why would we do that?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grabs Maeve's arm, even though she's crossed them; he's holding Becky's hand with his other hand::
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns and tries to tug her hand free::: What is going on!
Quantum Catz: DK: I'm taking Toby back to his own time before he decides to go setting any more murderers free
Quantum Catz: BM: ::mutters:: This isn't fair, dominick. You don't know the whole story
SP00KY One: MV: :::a flash of pain and regret crosses her features before she quickly masks it:::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::eyes widen:: I'm not going back there!
Quantum Catz: DK: You promised me you wouldn't cause any problems in the past. But even with Becky watching you, you did
YarnKittymon: TY: They were going to kill her! After she saved us! What was I supposed to do? Let her die?
Quantum Catz: DK: You were supposed to keep out of things. You don't belong in this time. Becky would have let her die
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks at the ground, not saying anything::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::squeezes Becky's hand tighter:: I don't...I don't care what happens to me here. I'm not leaving Becky, and I'm gonna get Maeve someplace safe or die trying.
SP00KY One: MV: :::looking at the ground, feeling uncomfortable:::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks up at Dominick:: No, i think Toby should go. He needs medical help and Maeve probably does too. Take us all somewhere and we can deal with the rest later
SP00KY One: MV: :::shakes her head::: No! I don't trust him! He'd take you all to a hospital but would probably dump me back in a jail cell!
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks around; everyone in the station is watching them; softly:: We'll wind up in a jail cell if we stay here, too.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::looks at becky for a moment and then sighs:: I'll take all three of you to a later time then
YarnKittymon: TY: ::softly:: Come on, Maeve, please.
SP00KY One: MV: :::frowns::: How much of a later time? And I still dont trust him.
Quantum Catz: DK: ::coldly:: Well, surprisingly enough Toby's on the run in the present as well, so nineties, i guess.
SP00KY One: MV: :::shrieks::: What!? :::shakes her head::: No, no way. Being a state away from my sister is bad enough... being almost sixty years away from her. Nope.
YarnKittymon: TY: Don't talk like it's my fault I was locked up in the first place!
Quantum Catz: DK: ::sighs:: I didn't mean it like that ::looks at Maeve:: You're kidding, right? What's your sister got to do with anything? It's not like i'm going to let you *stay* in that time
YarnKittymon: TY: Please, Maeve. Even if they don't shoot us or arrest us...*please.*
SP00KY One: MV: :::glares back at him::: She has a lot do with everything. Thank you! I'm kind of tired of always being seperated from her. :::sighs:: As long as you're not going to leave me stranded in some 90's jail, then she doesn't have anything to do with it.
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks over at Toby::: Promise he isn't going to drop me back in a little cement box?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: He wouldn't. And if he did you know I'd get you out again.
SP00KY One: MV: :::nods::: Okay. If you trust him I suppose I'll go along with it. ::::frowns:::
Quantum Catz: DK: ::holds out his hand again:: So are you coming or not?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::places her hand on his, looking at Toby and Maeve::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::keeps his hold on Maeve's arm::
SP00KY One: MV: :::looks over at Toby and then down at her arm::: What? Afraid I might hobble away too fast for anyone to catch me?
Quantum Catz: DK: ::since the three of them are all holding each other; shrugs:: That'll do ::the surroundings blur for a moment and the room's suddenly emptier and darker::
