Ben doesn't have to open every door in El Paso, turns out.

(Though he does open quite a damn few.)

When he and Dan Evans walk into Milliways, Ben's just glad to see the bar's intact; the place mostly looks, for all intents and purposes, like business as usual.

There are some signs — pockmarks, repairs in progress — that he doesn't fail to notice.

He and Dan part ways, and Ben makes for the counter.

"Now, you are a shinin' sight for sore eyes," he says to the bartop.

A shot of whiskey appears.

He smiles.

He'll certainly drink to this.

"And where have you been?"

Yesfir is happy, really. She's also furious and worried and concerned and glad and scowling at him.

Her eyes narrow.

"Waiting for you. The world ends, and you vanish."

Like hell was she going any where until she assessed that he wasn't dead.

"No," she says, voice softer. "I...felt something," and she taps her chest, right where the steel bindrune holding her together is, "but when I came in, it was over. But...everything was mess. And I worry. About you."

"Texas," she says, reaching up to (try and) circle his wrist with her hand. "Then next time, I not worry."

The strength in her small hand doesn't seem to be reading from the same script as her words, nor have her eyes, given they haven't left his face once.

"Good," she says, but first she smiles - all bright and happy and despite herself - and she tips her head up and stands up on her feet to kiss him.

Properly.

In public.





Maybe you had her a little worried, Benjamin Wade.

"She will not hear it from me."
aimedforthemoon: (are you sure about that?)

"Wise. A nice way of saying cunning."

She likes cunning! Cunning gets you places.
aimedforthemoon: (oh what a shame)

"Cunning is more fun."

Her look turns speculative, and more than a little wicked.

"So do I."
aimedforthemoon: (are you sure about that?)

"You might have forgotten. When you got tossed out into Texas."
