YarnKittymon: : ::when Maeve opens her bedroom
door, she immediately hears Toby speaking quietly, and bitterly::
I'll bet you thought it was funny to hear me praying and mourning
for her, when she never existed, didn't you?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::She pauses in the doorway, a small frown appearing on her face as she tries to figure out who Toby could be talking to::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is sitting on the couch in long-sleeved pajamas, his head bowed and his elbows on his knees; after a pause, very softly:: Can you count it towards someone else, then? Maybe...maybe Oliver...at least he *used* to exist...
Maeve Owens: MV: ::Her frown deepens and she steps through the doorway pulling the door closed behind her. It makes a soft click as it shuts::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks up, nearly as startled as if it'd been a paper bag popping:: Maeve?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she approaches the sofa, her steps hesitant as she glances around the room. She nods her head; softly:: Yeah. What was all that talking about I heard?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks away:: I still don't think he can hear you if you don't say it aloud.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Oh, I see. Sorry for interrupting you. ::a hesitant smile crosses her features and she fidgets, not knowing what else to say to him::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sighs; quietly:: I guess you were right about everything.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns:: I was right about what?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks away:: You said it was a mistake to marry her, didn't you?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::cringes:: Did I? I'm sorry...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::doesn't look up:: I figured you were right, but it was the only decent thing to do. Lot of good it did now.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::she sits down in one of the chairs angled next to the couch. Once seated her eyes dart towards Toby before settling on floor; quietly:: Cant argue there I suppose, most would have refused to have anything to do with the child
YarnKittymon: TY: ::is quiet for a while; then, softly, glancing up at Maeve:: Is there *anything* he could've done to make you forgive him? A magic word? Anything?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her eyes shoot up to look at him but they quickly return to the floor. She straightens up in the chair, shaking her head:: I honestly dont know Toby. I was waiting to feel something for him again like I knew I eventually should but it just wasn't happening. And then he was always there to remind me how much he loved me, how much he pined away for me and how soon he was going to die. ::sighs:: I dont know if he could have said anything to change my mind *this* time around. However you shouldn't be comparing that to you Toby. Two completely different scenarios here.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quickly:: I didn't say that to upset you. I just... I had no idea she'd be so hurt, when I didn't even know if it'd be *years* before she came back.
Maeve Owens: MV: I dont see how you can think she wouldn't be devastated, no matter how long its been.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks a little hurt, but doesn't look at Maeve; after an uncomfortable pause; softly:: So there's no chance.
Maeve Owens: MV: I didn't say that but you cant expect her to just get over it in a matter of days. She figured you'd wait for her and you didn't. Thats gotta hurt.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sighs; softly:: I guess...I'm glad to know the truth. About Lu, I mean. I was sure I'd fall for her eventually, but I couldn't...just couldn't.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Thats why I was about to marry Donald... I knew it had to happen sometime soon so I just figured I'd marry him and eventually the love would come... Libby convinced me otherwise though.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::looks up at Maeve; softly:: I thought you...I saw you two together. It really looked like...like you cared about him.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shifts uncomfortably in her seat:: Well, um, I... didn't hate him thats for sure but I just couldn't... ::sighs:: What are we talking about this for? You know, I'm sure Becky will eventually come around again.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::gets up off the couch:: Maybe. Thanks for letting me crash here; I find somewhere else for tonight.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods, standing up as well:: No problem.
YarnKittymon: TY: ::goes into the bathroom to change his clothes; comes out a couple minutes later::
