don't  think  my  cards  belong  to  you.  well,  i  know  they  don't.  hand  'em  over.

yeah,  gambit.  y'know,  a  sacrifice  to  get  an  advantage.  i  can  see  why  big  words're  a  little  intimidating.  [ the  cards  were  slipped  back  into  his  pocket  and  let  out  a  laugh  at  her  words. ]  ain't  a  soul  out  there  that  can  overthrow  me.  [ red  eyes  scanned  the  area  before  landing  back  on  the  other  and  he  gave  a  shrug  of  his  own.  ]  i  can  protect  myself.  got  no  reason  to  be  afraid.  i  might  just  be the  most  dangerous  thing  out  here.

[       she    asked    incredulously   ,    letting out     a  snort   .     what    was    it    with    people    coming    up    with     these    ridiculous names for    themselves    ?    the blonde    tilted her   head    to the side for a moment ,    shrugging    her shoulders    as she leaned against the wall .      ]        what    can I   say   ?    maybe    I’m here    to overthrow    your    rule    ,    your highness .

nobody  ever  tells  me  i'm  serious.  it's  always,  gambit,  be  / more /  serious,  y'know?  [ pushing  off  from  his  spot  against  the  wall,  he  took  the  cards  back,  shuffling  them  before  looking  over  at  her  with  a  smirk. ]  ya  got  some  skill.  and  here  i  thought  i  was  the  king  of  thieves.  [ the  mutant  couldn't  even  be  bothered  about  the  rest.   he  was  too  impressed  to  really  care.  the  cards  were  what  mattered  anyway.  ]  what  are  you  doin'  here  anyway?  don't  seem  too  safe  out  here.

@thirdcorvus      (  . . .  )      [        there were times like      this where     lenaya starkov would drift       off ,    whether that be due to boredom      ,      being lost in her own      thoughts          or if she was      listening in on someone else ‘s      thoughts      .      sometimes ,    she couldn’t even     / hear / herself think ,      the thoughts of others       around her      so loud it     got to the point of being overwhelming .    her fingers massaged her temples ,     eyes scanning around      the room     .     that was ,    until       she saw the     snap of the sharpshooter’s fingers     in front of her face     ,     instantly     causing her whole body       to tense for a moment     as her head shot round to look at him .          ]           huh  ?

˚‧☆。✧  oh,   bah!   you're forgetting the fact that you can't cheat your way through /every/ game  ...   especially not here.   [his words are both a gentle reminder and a subtle threat all at once.  with a practiced ease,   he gathers the chips and coins before him,  separating them with the quickest glances,  his attention focused mostly on the thief that stood before him.]   i'm DEALING,   not gambling,   and there's a whole line of people waiting for this table to be occupied.   [there's frustration in his voice,   his fingers drumming against the wooden table impatiently.   EXPOSURE THERAPY CLEARLY SHOULDN'T BE AN OPTION FOR ADDICTS.  he crosses one leg over the other,   exhaling as he does so and seemingly all but melting in his seat.   with an easy wave of his hand,  he then overrides his previous sentence by offering:]  --   but,  hey,   if you pay me enough,   i can sit here and listen to you talk.
