He'd never really thought that Fiona would take him up on his casual offer to come to watch him fight. Not that it seemed like she was full of shit or anything...but she is a woman. They say things easily, they're flippant and don't have the stomach for anything rough.

His opinion of women at the moment is, justifiably he thinks, low. Maria can shoulder a lot of the blame for that.

He always fights on a Friday and this week, he's definitely in the mood to cause some pain. He'd almost forgotten about Fi but when he opens the bathroom door and looks out onto the bar, he figures why not? He can even see her from where he's standing and she doesn't look like she's doing anything important.

'Busy tonight?'

He's never been much good at small talk.

She turns on a dime at the sound of his voice, and the sight of him makes her heart leap into her throat. For some reason, she thought maybe he'd never come back. But there he is, young and magnificent, and full piss and vinegar.

Fiona, quit staring, he asked you a question. She lifts her chin a little, a touch of that wildness showing in her eyes.

"Which is it? Dinner or the fights?"

Her hand comes to rest on the leather hip purse she's carrying. Ever since the tree incident, she's made a habit of carrying the .45 and a couple of spare mags with her wherever she goes.

She pushes off from her chair like it's offended her somehow, and stalks towards.

"Lead the way."

She does, on cat's feet, that ground eating stride she has that makes her look much taller than she is, her eyes taking in all the details. She's never been one to mince around behind a man, but trailing in the wake of this one is like flying behind a fighter jet. The view is nice.

"Let me guess. Tequila?"

From: [personal profile] justcallmefee
She eyes the drink cart and picks the tequila with only a few pours left. His brand. She fills two glasses and skips the ice, bringing him the other.

"¡Salud!"

She doesn't wait for him to return the toast her before tossing the drink back, her eyes never leaving his face.

She shakes her head 'no'.

She takes his hand and guides it to her hip, down the wide leather strap to where the purse lies over the crux of her thighs. She presses his hand in, so he can feel the hard outline of the gun within.

"Don't worry about me."

She leans into that touch at her hip, crossing her arms over her chest, listening with just as much solemn intent as he's speaking. The warning not to break his little brother pleases her immensely. He's been paying attention.

"Like I said, don't worry about me. Point out your uncle, and your brother, and I can take care of myself." She idly plucks at the front of his shirt. "You just do what you do, and I'll try to not to embarrass you."

She's wearing her best jeans, and her favourite tunic over a long sleeved shirt. Even in the wedge heels, she should fit in just fine.

She slots in behind him like she's been doing it all her life. There is a moment's pause as she wonders whether or not to curl up next to him like arm candy, but she decides against it. Rico gets a lazy smile, Pablo gets a look that would make a shark think twice.

She does take the .45 out, dropping the mag and replacing it with a surety that should communicate that she knows what she's doing. That accomplished, she tucks it in her waist band. It's not at all comfortable, or attractive, but she recognises the necessity. (Pablo perhaps brought it home.)

The comment about Hector is taken without any visible reaction.

"How far?" She puts a little Rio in her accent, letting them get the wrong idea.

justcallmefee: (working)
From: [personal profile] justcallmefee
One of the things you learn in her line of work is how to kill time and make it look good. She memorises their route, fixing major landmarks in her memory.

She also watches him, her gaze focused on the scene beyond the window. She's seen him keyed up before, but not like this. Well almost. Something about the way he's holding himself reminds her of their first near miss, in her flat.

She looks away, out the window, watching the barrio unfold around them.

Date: 2010-02-27 01:05 am (UTC)
justcallmefee: (sceptical)
From: [personal profile] justcallmefee
Again, she trails in his wake, eyes on the crowd, watching hands and cataloguing who's carrying. (Answer: everyone.) Her smile is easy, her movements relaxed. She's been here before. This place is always the same, no matter where it is in the world.

"Hector."

Her thumbs hook in the pockets of her jeans and she rests her weight on one hip, and she keeps Rico at her back.

She takes the money, not even bothering to hide it, lining the bills up across her palm and snapping them so she can count them. Two fingers curl them down the middle and she smirks up at Rico, heading off to find a good place to watch from. She finds a heavy water-filled fifty five gallon oil drum to perch on, her eyes picking out the other fighters and their little bands of followers. She's surprised not to see more women here. Even when she was growing up, the girls always wanted to hang out with the bad boys.

Maybe Colombian women aren't as hardy as the Irish, she thinks. And that makes her smirk broaden into a proper grin.

Rico isn't much of a conversationalist, and that's okay. It isn't long before she gets bored and wanders off to find the other bookies. She dives head first into the action. She's pleased to find out Ramon's odds are almost even. She refrains, reluctantly, from talking up how he's slow on that one side and how he drank too much last night, so she doesn't think he's going to do too well. He said not to embarrass him, so she won't, even it might mean a double on their take. He has to live here, after all.

Bets laid, she returns to her oil drum, and using Rico's shoulder to steady herself, she hops up on it. One foot goes flat on the corrugated tin wall and she rests on her heel. The metal is still warm from the day's heat, and she's got a perfect view of the fight. (And the exits, and the guys out on the street, and wow, nobody can grab her ass or steal her purse from here.)

Rico gives her a small and seemingly appreciative nod and turns his back to her.

She takes the whiskey from him, uncorking it and taking a long swig, never letting it interfere with her view.

"No trouble at all, right Rico?" She wipes her mouth with the back of her hand before taking another sip, watching the fights with a lazy interest.

She hands the bottle back and hooks her thumbs in her jeans pockets. "I hope he's right. Would hate to be a disappointment."

Date: 2010-02-28 10:16 pm (UTC)
justcallmefee: (explaining)
From: [personal profile] justcallmefee
She reaches out a hand to touch his shoulder.

"Don't turn around," she says, keeping her voice down, for his ears only. Her arm rests on his, casual, but pointing in the direction of the man he's going to be fighting. "Knife, left pocket."

She smiles and giggles, turning her eyes away like he just propositioned her.

Date: 2010-03-01 06:30 am (UTC)
justcallmefee: (room in the trunk)
From: [personal profile] justcallmefee
She stands up as tall as she can, watching him, heart in her mouth. The air in the crowd is strangely charged, and she keeps just as close a watch on the crowd. It's not the usual casual bloodlust of these events, there's something more. He's royalty here, and it shows in their faces. Like this is the only place they'd dare lift a hand against him.

She cheers for him, regardless, one hand resting on the butt of her gun. She cheers and winces, unconsciously weaving as she watches the big haymakers come in low and slow, waiting for Ramon to open up on him.

She also watches his uncle, smoking that cigar and looking not the least bit worried. She turns her eyes back to the fight and the shifting energy of the crowd. Whatever happens, she can handle herself.
