71 of 179 ... ::draws his fingers through his long white beard::
From: merloch
Date: May 22 1999

Hmm..well Gem..here's the situation..

Someone, meddling with time, erased my wife Camellia from the time stream. When that happened...No one ever knew she existed, also..

::looks at Jylasia and Jherome:: You two, vanished.
And hence, the lifelines went astray from what they were. I had an entirely different life, from the one..::Lookjs at Zep and Gem:: You two know..

I lived a life that, ::guestures:: Jylasia and Jherome knew of.

Well, my life was different, so was yours.. ::looks at Gem:: Which is why Jherome has the habit of calling Old Man Blue...

And, dear Zephyr, that, is where these 'two' came from... They always existed.. we just didnt know it.

72 of 179 ... Ah..
From: BlueGreenGem
Date: May 22 1999

My next question is.. why are you looking like that? Any significance?

73 of 179 ... ::Jauxzer and Jylasia are busy playing with each other::

Uh, May ah be excused with mah wife? Ya see, ah haven't been getting mah needs satisfied. ::Jylasia giggles, blushing::

74 of 179 ... Mmm..
From: merloch
Date: May 22 1999

In the other lifeline, the one with Jherome and Jylasia..You didn't accept Fomhoire's offer. You were a simple human, whom grew old. And I made myself look like this, to help your ego. I changed to this way, now, because it helps Jherome and Jylasia familiarize.. I think? ::looks at the two::
