Sep 11, 2002 11:43 AM
Alex sat on the couch bored...look at the radio.
"You know Maeve we should do somthing...like hang out with friends..."
Sep 11, 2002 11:57 AM
Maeve sat next to Alex on the couch...
"Friends? I dont think your friends like me very much. Although thats nothing new. What did you have in mind?"
Sep 11, 2002 11:59 AM
Alex looks over to her.
"I wanted to take Libby and Becky to a Movie!"
Stands up, and gets his shoes on.
"common lets go! I'll steal my fathers car while his taking his nap!"
Sep 11, 2002 12:03 PM
Maeve looks suprised.
"Becky doesn't like me Alex, what makes you think she is going to want to go to the movies with me?"
Sep 11, 2002 12:05 PM
"It just takes her awhile, I'm sure, you'll become good friends...just give her a chance."
Opens the door.
"Hurry before my dad wakes up."
He giggles the keys.
Sep 11, 2002 12:07 PM
At the Freak Show building, Libby's in the back room, sitting on her bed, listening to a radio drama. She's thankful she saved a radio from being repossessed, though she feels like the electricity needed to power it's an extravagance she can't really afford. But it's more fun than reading a book...
Sep 11, 2002 12:10 PM
"Ok, maybe your right."
Hurries out the door.
Sep 11, 2002 12:11 PM
Becky's sitting on the stage with Daniel, eating a bar of chocolate. She considers going to see what Libby's doing but she's quite happy sitting with Daniel so she doesn't bother.
Sep 11, 2002 12:12 PM
After convinceing her, they take off to coney island.
when they get there, Alex runs up to the building and knocks on the door.
"hello, its me, Alex..."
Looks at Maeve.
Sep 11, 2002 12:14 PM
Becky teleports over to the door and opens it. Hi, Alex," she says smiling, although she doesn't look particularly happy to see Maeve with him.
Sep 11, 2002 12:17 PM
Daniel mrrs. He's still not very comfortable around Maeve, or even Alex.
Sep 11, 2002 05:20 PM
Alex hugs Becky.
"Oh hi! I guess your not my lil girl anymore huh? You're all grown up!"
Looks at Daniel.
"Hey, how are you Daniel?"
Sep 11, 2002 05:22 PM
Most cats are not good conversationalists, and Daniel is no exception. He mrrs. "Fine."
Sep 11, 2002 05:32 PM
"So what're you doing here?" Becky asks, frowning slightly at Maeve.
Sep 11, 2002 05:36 PM
Looks at Maeve, and smiles.
"Well me and Maeve wanted to know if you two would like to see a movie."
Then back at Becky.
Sep 11, 2002 05:40 PM
"I take it you meant me and Libby and not me and Dan," Becky says, rolling her eyes. "And somehow i doubt *Maeve* wanted to go see a movie with *me*.
Sep 11, 2002 05:51 PM
Daniel's ears perk, but he lowers his head when Becky says that he's not invited.
Sep 12, 2002 10:32 AM
Maeve folds her arms across her chest and pouts.
"You're the one who has a problem with *me*."
Whispers to Alex.
"See, I told you this was a bad idea."
Sep 12, 2002 12:09 PM
Becky turns away. "My only problem with you is that you scare Dan."
Sep 12, 2002 03:46 PM
Alex just smiles.
"Well, Its hard to please Dan, if you know what I mean...heh, well are we going?"
Points to the brand new shiny car.
Sep 12, 2002 03:51 PM
Daniel licks Becky's hand, then goes off to a corner of the stage to sulk.
Sep 12, 2002 03:58 PM
"You haven't even asked Libby yet," Becky replies, paying more attention to Daniel than Alex's fancy car.
Sep 12, 2002 06:18 PM
Maeve impatiently taps her foot.
"I agree with Alex, that is the most ungrateful cat I have ever met."
Walks toward the door.
"Are we going to go or not?"
Sep 12, 2002 09:33 PM
Daniel looks hurt, and flicks his tail. "I just wanted to go to the movie," he says, his voice catching.
Sep 12, 2002 11:37 PM
"What on earth does he have to be grateful to you for anyway?" Becky says sharply.
Sep 13, 2002 08:19 AM
Alex looks at Becky.
"I think your being a bit rude...Maeve is really trying to get to know you, and trying to make friends, why keep pushing her away.."
Looks at Daniel.
"I'll bring you back some popcorn, okay?"
Sep 13, 2002 08:32 AM
"I didn't say he should be grateful to *me*."
Sep 13, 2002 08:34 AM
Goes in the back to get Libby.
"Hey, ummm you wanna come? I mean its better than just sitting around right? heh..."
Sep 13, 2002 09:49 AM
"I don't like popcorn," Daniel murmurs.
Libby looks up quickly when the door
opens, and just about screams when Alex comes in the room. "Alex!"
she says shakily. Faint dramatic organ music is coming from the
radio; it was evidently a very exciting part in the show. With
a shaking hand she switches the radio off. "What are you
*talking* about?" she asks.
Sep 13, 2002 10:13 AM
He looks at the radio, then at her.
"wanna come to the movie with us, sure to have a blast!"
looks out the at Daniel.
"Then I'll just bring you some....fried chicken gizzards!"
Sep 13, 2002 10:17 AM
Daniel mrrs, confused, but closer to being pacified.
"Oh, my," Libby says, half-smiling.
"Well, I promised I'd let you take me if you got better...just
let me get my hat." She picks it up from a peg in the wall
and pulls it over her hair. "How are you feeling?"
Sep 13, 2002 10:22 AM
He looks at her and smiles.
"I'm feeling frisky! and a tad dizzy, but i'll live....you?"
Sep 13, 2002 10:25 AM
"Still a little frightened," Libby says, smiling. She walks into the front room. "Oh...hello, Maeve. How are you today?"
Sep 13, 2002 10:27 AM
Maeve decides it would be safer if she followed Alex. Peeking into the room she saw him enrer she calls out. "Alex?"
Sep 13, 2002 10:33 AM
Alex looks at Maeve.
"ehh..shes talking to you..."
Puts his arms around Maeve's shoulder.
Sep 13, 2002 10:36 AM
Smiles at Libby.
"I'm fine thanks. You?"
Sep 13, 2002 10:46 AM
"I'm doing fairly well." She smirks at Maeve. "I would've thought you might be a little disappointed that Alex was up and about so quickly; it must've been easier to look out for him while he was in bed..."
She doesn't realize 'til after she's
said it that that's probably not the best thing to say at the
Sep 13, 2002 10:56 AM
Looks up and smiles.
"Yeah its hard to keep me down!"
((he probally is still alittle bruised.))
Looks at Maeve.
"I think she should be a great mother, taking care of me and all that.."
Sep 13, 2002 11:09 AM
Laughs a little.
"Keeping up with Alex isn't so hard. Its the most fun I have had in four years!"
Turns to glare at Alex.
"And as for being a mother, when hell freezes over."
Sep 13, 2002 12:28 PM
Becky chuckles slightly at the banter between Alex and Maeve, but she quickly turns away to look over at Daniel. "I guess i'll see you later, Dan, okay?"
Sep 13, 2002 12:29 PM
"Yeah," Daniel says, sighing a little.
Libby sighs, but heads towards the door.
Sep 13, 2002 01:07 PM
"We'll do something together once i get back," Becky adds, feeling a bit guilty about always having to leave Daniel when they go out.
Sep 13, 2002 01:20 PM
"Okay," Daniel says quietly.
Sep 13, 2002 01:28 PM
Quickly runs over to give Daniel a hug. "I'll be back before you know it." And then heads for the front door.
Sep 13, 2002 01:44 PM
"You may listen to the radio while we're gone," Libby adds. Daniel looks partially appeased, though not fully.
Sep 14, 2002 08:12 AM
Alex head towards the door.
Sep 15, 2002 02:08 PM
Maeve follows Alex to the door, eager to get going.
Sep 15, 2002 02:27 PM
"So what movie are we going to see anyway?" Becky asks.
Sep 15, 2002 03:59 PM
Looks at becky.
"oh whatever they have playing...which I'm not sure...what."
Sep 15, 2002 07:42 PM
"I don't care which film," Libby says. "I haven't been in such a long time..." She smiles. "Hopefully something with lots of action, though; we wouldn't want Becky to be bored. I don't care if it's a talkie or not."
Sep 16, 2002 07:16 AM
Giving Alex a knowing smile.
"As long as it doesn't have the words *Jazz Singer* in the title, its fine with me."
Sep 16, 2002 09:28 AM
Glares at Maeve, he gets in the new shiny car and starts it.
"hey, thats the best movie ever made! I love it!"
Sep 16, 2002 10:12 AM
"Come now; I'll bet even Becky's seen that one," Libby says, half-smiling.
Sep 16, 2002 10:51 AM
Starts repeating lyrics to the movie.
"Ahhh...its so sweet...."
Sep 16, 2002 11:19 AM
Gets into the passenger seat and reaches over and hits Alex on the head.
"I do not want to hear it! Believe me, if I wanted to hear the lines I could quote them to myself, since you have drug me to see that thing at least once a week!"
Sep 16, 2002 11:32 AM
Alex glares at her.
"Hey am still alittle sore up there ya know...ouch."
Looks at her and smiles.
"well start quoteing the words! I wanna hear! I love that movie!"
Sep 16, 2002 04:26 PM
Becky gets into the car and smiles weakly. "Please don't - it's not that great a movie."
Sep 16, 2002 04:47 PM
"Perhaps we've made a mistake, coming with them," Libby says, smiling at Becky as she gets in the seat next to her. "But I guess if things get too bad you can just take us back home, huh?"
Sep 16, 2002 04:57 PM
"Yeah," Becky says with a smile. "My powers are great for fast getaways."
Sep 16, 2002 06:24 PM
Alex looks annoyed but then starts driving off.
"we just teases each other..thats all, well love each very much."
Turns the car to the right.
Sep 18, 2002 05:29 PM
Maeve sits back and smiles.
"Do we scare you? Well, you have to admit, with us around there is always a guarantee that you wont get bored."
Sep 18, 2002 05:32 PM
"Well, we're coming with you," Libby says with a smile. "Aren't we allowed to be a bit frightened? Though fear wasn't exactly what I was feeling....not just yet. I thought you two were behaving--and that thought's scary enough..."
Sep 18, 2002 05:38 PM
"As long as they don't *stop* behaving while we're out," Becky says.
Sep 19, 2002 07:43 AM
Alex pulls in to the movies cinema.
"okay disembark, we gotta a movie to catch!"
He jumps out and opens the door for Libby.
"Ladies first, fools last."
Sep 19, 2002 10:36 AM
Libby blinks at Alex. "Well, you got out of the car before me--does that make you the lady?"
Sep 19, 2002 10:40 AM
Alex looks down and frowns.
"No ma'am, I was just trying to be a gentleman...thats all..."
Sep 19, 2002 11:15 AM
Maeve gets out of the car.
"Oh my, your father is starting to rub off on you. You're turning into a gentleman. Miracles can happen."
Sep 19, 2002 11:18 AM
He smiles at Maeve.
"Well I just want to be nicer to Libby, I'm alwas so mean....I'm sorry."
Sep 19, 2002 11:20 AM
Libby smiles at him, getting out of the car. "I was just joking with you, Alex."
Sep 19, 2002 12:17 PM
Becky gets out of the car as well. "I don't think anyone would say you were *mean*."
Sep 19, 2002 05:56 PM
"thank you becky."
He opens the cinemas door for the ladies.
Sep 20, 2002 08:56 AM
As Maeve walks through the door, she grins at Alex.
"Well, since you are trying to be such a gentleman, then *you* can pay for the tickets!"
Sep 20, 2002 09:15 AM
"I was planing too, but not yours, so find your own way in."
Sep 20, 2002 10:47 AM
"Alex!" Libby says, reproachfully. "If you invited Maeve you *must* pay for her, too."
Sep 21, 2002 08:12 AM
Alex gives a smirk.
"But I didn't invite her."
He laughs, but then decide the joke is over.
"Oh why look here I have an extrea
ticket, would you like it Maeve?"
Sep 23, 2002 09:39 AM
Maeve glares at Alex and snatches the ticket out of his hand.
"Oh you didnt invite me did you? I clearly remember you saying, 'Maeve, I'm bored, WE should go hang out with friends'. I can easily make it to where you will be laying in bed for weeks on end due to a freak accident."
She smiles sweetly at him.
Sep 23, 2002 09:52 AM
"Don't you dare!" Libby says. "We need him for the show!"
Sep 24, 2002 08:41 AM
Alex looks hurt.
"Gee..thats all I'm used for is that show, do'nt I have a better use than that?"
Stops and thinks.
Sep 24, 2002 12:36 PM
Libby rolls her eyes. "It's not attractive for a man to be that insecure, Alex."
Sep 25, 2002 04:25 PM
Alex looks at her.
"oh it is? oh okay, Well I know I'm good, you all would be lost without me! whahahah!"
Sep 26, 2002 08:07 AM
"Don't bet on it."
Sep 28, 2002 10:09 AM
Becky chuckles. "So are we going to see this movie or not?"
Sep 28, 2002 10:20 AM
"Movie? Oh, in all the talk I'd forgotten about *that.*" Libby smirks. "I guess so. You two, be quiet inside the theater, though." She gives Maeve and Alex a pointed look.
Sep 28, 2002 10:55 AM
Surpisingly Alex is very quiet, almost way too quiet during the movie.
