The saloon in Jamestown, California is more respectable than any of the ones back in Dodge City.

(Of course, that's not saying a whole hell of a lot.)

Nonetheless, it's a classy establishment, and it's at least marginally safer than the holes-in-the-wall Ben's used to playing cards in, and that's what matters; dressed in a smart three-piece suit and Tiwa on his arm, Ben holds open the door and tips his head.

"Pookas first."

She found a dress that's blue and has a sort of shimmer to it in the right light and gloves up to her elbows. Though the best part of the outfit is the hat which is almost entirely feathers and there are also feathers on the dress, which makes her look and feel quite beautiful.

Its hard not to twirl so she gives him a curtsy, "Thank you."

All eyes are drawn to them when they enter and a few linger on her but the smart ones notice the Colt and try to look like they weren't looking.

She grins up at him and tries to look around without being really obvious.

This is hard since there are mirrors and candles glinting off the mirrors and touches of velvet, she didn't expect such a lush space,

"Right, I'll follow you."

Tiwa's been thinking about what to do to her accent and so decides to go for a little more English than Kiwi,

"A glass of white wine, please. Its a pleasure to have such an island of beauty amid the dust of the world."

The last is said with a shy sort of nod to the man behind the counter.

Since the dress is complicated, getting onto the stool requires all of her poise combined with a little hop at the end,

"Thank you, Ben. Now please tell me what the surprise that you promised is for this evening."
piwakawaka: (can you see the trick?)

Its hard not to grin when he gives her a look like that so she gives him what's meant to be a patient smile,

"I knew that. I just know how you are for making plans."

"I'm not sure if I should be relieved or not."

She shifts slightly on her stool which causes lots of interesting rustling and she gains an admiring watcher or two.

One she's turned enough to look around, she gives him a sweet smile and a quick kiss on the cheek,

"You know I must trust your judgment for where I learn to play poker, Ben."
piwakawaka: (small smile)

"You can't tell me that you wouldn't enjoy that?"

The only thing that's keeping her smile from an all out smirk is how she's politely pressing her lips together, she's meant to be a lady.

Tiwa looks between the two men and her smile gets sharper,

"Thank you for the compliment, sir. My Ben's always been wonderfully generous in making sure that I look beautiful."

In a movement that's perhaps a touch too quick, she's leaning on Ben's arm.
piwakawaka: (fond look)

[personal profile] piwakawaka 2010-01-20 02:44 am (UTC)(link)
"I do have to keep a rather sharp eye on my Ben, he's always attracting attention."

She leans up and this time kisses the corner of Ben's mouth and the look in her eyes is soft though Ben can probably spot the spark of mischief.

"Though perhaps you could tell us when the next poker game is starting. I think we could allow him to do that, dear?"

This time she's found the right angle to lean on Ben without feeling too inelegant in the dress.
piwakawaka: (listening)

[personal profile] piwakawaka 2010-01-20 03:52 am (UTC)(link)
"I'd like that. Should we go over and see if we can grab some seats? Thank you, sir."

She smiles up at Ben and shifts so that the man doesn't have quite as good a view of her.

He watches the two of them and turns saying as he leaves,

"I might just join you then. Always pleased to help a beauty like yourself learn to play."
piwakawaka: (follow me if you dare)

[personal profile] piwakawaka 2010-01-20 04:54 am (UTC)(link)
"Shall we?"

Tiwa's not quite sure how she can get down from the stool while still being terribly ladylike and she's hoping Ben will help.

As soon as the man is gone, Tiwa allows herself a big smile at Ben, this is fun.
piwakawaka: (flirty laugh)

The dealer gets a nod from Tiwa and a small smile as she manages to sit fairly elegantly,

"He's taught me how to play, but I've never been able to play with anyone else before. I told him that I was getting awful tired of just being his good luck charm and thought I'd use some of my own luck for a change."

All the men at the table watch them but mainly her.
