Won me over


(And now.. a story.  Enjoy)

After a few secretly exchanged messages over the past week, Mr. Curtis and Ms. Fox had agreed to meet at the bottom of the first floor staircase, at the Uptown theatre. The time: 5pm sharp. Tonight the venue was playing host to parlor games, entrance to the event required a high buy-in. Some of the wealthiest people in the district would be there to take part in the games. Through means of their own, each had managed to acquire their an invite to the event. This was going to be their grandest score yet.

At 5pm, on the nose, Mr. Curtis arrived dressed in his grey suit, accented with a green tie, and he waited at the appointed spot. Ms. Fox was nowhere to be seen. There was nothing for him to do but wait.

A few minutes passed by and people started to filter in through the front door, but there was still no sign of his partner. Fifteen minutes had passed and he was about to forget about their deal and do the job on his own, when he caught sight of someone coming down the stairs in a long, fitted, green silk dress with a brown fur shawl across her shoulders.  It was Ms. Fox.

His eyes narrowed as he watched her saunter down the steps as though she had all the time in the world.  “Are you ready, Mr. Curtis?” she asked, a hint of mirth playing on her lips.

He was not amused. “What happened to ‘5pm, on the dot. Don’t be late’?”

“And you weren’t late,” came her reply. Once near enough Ms. Fox patted his cheek.

Mr. Curtis rolled his eyes and turned away from her touch. He could have made better use of his time instead of lingering by the steps,  waiting for her.  He wondered what other antics she had planned for the evening. “People have already started arriving and are milling around the theatre. Let’s go.”

They left the staircase and entered. Mr. Curtis was right. From the string ensemble playing on the stage, to the servers snaking through the growing crowd, and the guest gathered around high stool bars, and roulette tables, the room was a buzz of activity. The pair of them stood off to the side observing the attendees and taking note of how loose some of the guest were already being with their money.

This was going to be too easy.  They’d play the room, following each others leads, and each leave out with a substantial sum before the night was over. Mr. Curtis adjusted his tie and glanced to his partner for the evening. It was time to play.
