She stops when she catches sight of her. She'd heard she'd find her here, but she can scarcely believe her eyes. The kind and generous woman she's come to know and care for deeply over the last few months since she left the Dark One would never be caught in the Rabbit Hole unless she was trying to keep Rumplestiltskin from doing something. Yet, here she is, her natural beauty practically glowing underneath the neon lights.
Ruby picks up a pool stick but just leans on its end as she continues to watch Belle. She'd come determined to make her remember who she really is and the very reasons why she'd never be in a place like this, but watching her now, she's quickly changing her mind. She may have forgotten who she is, but that means she's forgotten her supposed True Love as well. Maybe, just maybe, that means Ruby can now stand a chance with her?
Lacey catches her watching and flashes her a grin as well as a shot of the treasure trove down her cleavage as she takes her next shot. That shot clears her table. "Fancy a game?" she calls, standing and looking at Ruby from underneath her long, dark eyelashes.
The wolf has rarely been one to turn down a challenge. Besides, she's playing at her game now, flirting with the same sex. Ruby grins, letting her dangerous fangs show, and she notices the way Lacey's eyes widen then narrow with appreciation. "Game on."
