YarnKittymon: FI: ::gently knocks on Maureen's door shortly after 9 AM::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::groans at even the slight noise, her head pounding::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::her eyes pop open and she glances at the bed next to her before throwing the covers back. She climbs out of bed and heads towards the door, pulling it open::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::smiles at Maureen, then looks in on Becky, a little worried; whispers:: Becky? We have breakfast.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::wryly:: That's nice...i have a hangover ::sighs:: Sorry...didn't mean to be rude...
Maeve Owens: ME: ::stands quietly in the doorway::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::smiles weakly, still whispering:: I'm sure someone out there knows a hangover cure.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::slowly moves to stand up:: probably deserve it anyway...should've stoped well before that Aftershock...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::slowly:: Seems a little strange to think of it...but we have clothes you can change into the old-fashioned way if you like.
Quantum Catz: BM: 'S okay...i have some of my own on the island...for when i go back...
Maeve Owens: ME: ::looks completely confused but she doesn't say anything::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::after a moment:: I can bring you some pancakes instead.
Quantum Catz: BM: That's okay...i'll come downstairs...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::nods, then smiles at Maureen:: No waffles today; I hope you forgive me.
Maeve Owens: ME: ::she looks disappointed for a half a second before she smiles:: Thats okay. Guess I cant expect to eat them everyday.
YarnKittymon: FI: ::grins:: You can get up early tomorrow and help me make them, if you want them that badly.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles slightly::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::nods:: Sorry I wasn't up early this morning... I guess I over slept.
YarnKittymon: FI: ::runs a hand over the girl's hair, smiling:: Get dressed and come down when you're ready; there's still plenty to eat, never mind Hammie.
Maeve Owens: ME: ::she smiles brightly at Fiona before grabbing some clothes and heading off to change::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::heads for the doorway; softly:: I'm sorry i just turned up like i did...i'm not really sure how i ended up here anyway...i was awfully confused...
YarnKittymon: FI: It doesn't matter; you came to the right place. ::softly:: It upset me more to think you'd *think* I hated you, than what you'd said.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::looks down and shrugs:: Took me a while to even admit to myself that was really me...and then i guess i just regretted it so much...i hated *myself* for it
YarnKittymon: FI: ::smiling softly:: Would it make you feel any better to know I've heard worse? Never on purpose, of course.
Quantum Catz: BM: Yeah but not from me or Dominick...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::shrugs:: From kids here, though, and we're not even in a lab.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Yeah, well...I just felt so bad...especially when i knew that the lab was about to be destroyed...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::cringes, remembering some of the thoughts she heard shortly after the explosion; after a pause, softly:: But I'm all right. You knew I was all right.
Quantum Catz: BM: Yeah...but i didn't know that i'd get a chance to apologise... ::smiles weakly:: Although i was too much of a wimp to actually do that...till now...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::pauses again; softly:: And I'm sorry I cried so much over you. I know they hurt us more because of it, but...how could I help it?
Quantum Catz: BM: It's okay...i was just always scared of them hurting you because of me ::sighs:: They weren't exactly the best times of our lives
YarnKittymon: FI: ::nods:: We're all right now. All of us. ::steps back towards the stairs:: You can eat a little, right?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: I guess i can stomach a bit of food
YarnKittymon: FI: ::smiles, then looks around for Maureen::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::is returning to the room with her pajamas folded neatly in her hand::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::smiles at Maureen:: Faster than last time. You're controlling your talent better, aren't you?
Maeve Owens: ME: ::she nods carefully, not looking at Fiona at all:: But I still cant go without my gloves... ::afraid that Fiona is going to send her back home::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::her smile widens:: Never mind that; you're still growing into them. Your powers, I mean; the gloves fit fine.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::softly:: A lot of people have trouble with their powers when they're growing up - one day you'll be able to control them like Fiona can...
Maeve Owens: ME: ::looking somewhat relieved, she places her clothes on her bed:: I hope so... then maybe Daddy will love me. ::shrugs::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::looks rather sadder, but doesn't argue; just heads downstairs::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly at Maureen and then follows Fiona downstairs::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::she follows the two downstairs, trying to seem happy again::
YarnKittymon: : ::there's a large, long table in the dining room, mostly full, though just about everyone there would gladly give his or her seat for Fiona or her friend; there's pancakes and bacon on the table, with a bit of scrambled eggs
YarnKittymon: left, and some orange stuff in a pitcher, not quite qualified to be juice::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sits down, still looking quite hungover, although she has a bit of bacon::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::sits next to Becky, gently asking the person next to her to move so Maureen can sit with them; has a couple pancakes, which are quite good::
Maeve Owens: ME: ::once they move she sits down next to Fiona and eats her breakfast quietly::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::doesn't say much as she eats, wondering about what she should do next...since all she really seems to want now is to go home - whether her and Toby's problems are solved or not::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::seems to sense this, as she murmurs to Becky:: I'm glad I got to see you again.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles slightly:: Me too...sometimes i missed you so much...you and Dominick...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::grins:: Try taking care of a couple dozen runaways and you'll be too busy to think of much else.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles slightly:: I...work in an orphanage back home...not quite the same but...when they're all variants it can be a bit of work...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::smiles softly:: That's wonderful, Becky.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: But then i left the kids as well when i ran off...
YarnKittymon: FI: Oh. ::pauses:: It wouldn't be wrong to...just go back a few days after you left, then?
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't like doing that...it feels like deceiving people - if it was 8 months to me...it should really be the same to them...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::quietly:: If that's what you want.
Maeve Owens: ME: ::she munches on a piece of bacon, half listening to what the two of them are saying::
Quantum Catz: BM: It would make me feel like i was lying to them otherwise
YarnKittymon: FI: ::sighs, not wanting to speak her mind in front of the children:: All right.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: It might have been a long time...but i can still tell when you're not happy with something...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::smiles weakly; very softly:: It's not *really* a lie if you explain to them...and if you'd be making them happier...what's the harm?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::jokes weakly:: You make it sound like you know something - you didn't learn time travel since i last saw you, did you?
YarnKittymon: FI: ::laughs a little:: No. But it seems to me you could go back and keep the kids happy, anyway...though I guess maybe Toby could use the time away from you to figure his own life out.
Maeve Owens: ME: ::glances over at Becky, smiling:: I bet they're really fond of you and they probably miss you too.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles slightly back at Maureen:: Probably like your family miss you
Maeve Owens: ME: ::glances down at her plate, sadly, her mind conjuring up her father and one of his angry rants::
YarnKittymon: FI: Well, sometimes you need some time apart to realize how much your relationship means.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: I hope so
YarnKittymon: FI: ::softly:: You're welcome to stay here as long as you like.
Quantum Catz: BM: Thanks but...i dunno...maybe last night knocked some kind of sense into me...i kinda just want to go home...
YarnKittymon: FI: ::nods:: Are you up to it?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::winces:: Probably not just now - my head's killing me
YarnKittymon: FI: You could take a bus to Rellins, but that might not be any better. ::smiles:: And I'd just as soon you stay a bit longer.
Maeve Owens: ME: ::smiles at Becky:: I'll let you borrow babs.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::to Maureen:: That's okay - i'm hoping i won't feel lonely anymore when i go home...
Maeve Owens: ME: ::nods, taking another bite our of her bacon:: Its not lonely here. ::she smiles up at Fiona::
YarnKittymon: FI: ::grins:: No, not at all. A lot of work, but it's worth it.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: Yeah, i can guess it would be
YarnKittymon: FI: ::suddenly gets up to break up an argument between two teenagers::
