Thomas did not want to leave either of them behind; they should not be driven away from their home  when they had never done anything wrong! "This is madness," Thomas said as he took the money from her. How could he set off for Europe, not knowing if Elizabeth and her friends would refrain from harming Peggy? "I...I can't leave you behind," he said with a crack in his voice.

“You can. You will. And I will be after you shortly,” Peggy told Thomas and put her hand to his face, “I have caused so much pain for your family. For you. For Charles. I will not let it happen again on my account,” she whispered.

"IF they hurt you, it will cause me pain," Thomas said the eyed ELizabeth with hatred burning in his eyes; if she harmed his wife, Thomas would return. He would hunt her down and ensure she suffered a long and painful death.

Peggy looked at him and pulled his eyes back to her, “When Francis took me, I survived. When Yvo turned me, I survived. I’m not going to stop being a survivor now,” she told him and then leaned in and kissed him deeply before pulling away to go upstairs and get the money.

While he still did not like leaving her behind, Thomas knew she was right and it was a losing battle. He nodded and then looked towards his siblings, "very well. We will go," he said.

Elizabeth made a dramatic gagging noise at the display of affection. Any elegance she had displayed in their earlier meetings was totally gone now, having been a complete facade.
"Oh, look, someone's waking up," she said and ruffled Charles' hair as he started to come to with a groan.

Nico continued to glare at Elizabeth as they started to leave, the wheels in his head spinning. He wasn't very good at coming up with snappy last-minute plans, but what he was good at was violent, blood-soaked revenge. And as much as he and mingles didn't, and probably would never, get along, he was still Maggie's family and he'd be damned if he let anyone hurt her family.

Thomas moved towards his brother protectively, "Don't touch him, you've lost that privilege," Thomas snarled at Elizabeth.

[nothing but he doesn’t need to I just love him]

Maggie stood stock still, torn between the fear she felt and the anger she had for Elizabeth. She couldn’t bring herself to move either way because both directions felt like stepping into danger. “Don’t you ever touch my brother again,” she spat at her.

Elizabeth rolled her eyes and lifted her hands up in mock-surrender as she took a step away from Charles.
"Why's errybody s'mad?" Charles mumbled, still not completely out of the woods yet. "Don't yell," he added, raising a hand to his head and rubbing it.

Letting out a heavy sigh, Nico stepped forward, carefully picking Charles up. "Just keep quiet," he warned him. "And... try to sleep."

"Sure thing, Chomper." Charles gnashed his teeth a bit to emphasize his new nickname for Nico as his head lolled onto his shoulder. "Wai', m'fiancee," he mumbled, already starting to pass out again.

<**omg**>

"What the hell did she give you?" Nico muttered under his breath as he carried Charles back to the others. He cast one last look back at Peggy, then looked to Maggie and Thomas. "Come on. Let's go."
