~~ Ruby and Rio spend the afternoon pouring over Rio’s sketches, talking about the freedom of Rio’s life and making plans for Ruby to join him at the pier in Santa Monica, California some day; and ride horses on the beach (“Like a real cowboy. None of this side saddle stuff. Ride like a man.”); and chew tobacco like a man and SPIT like a man! And this was the perfect time to show Ruby how to SPIT like a man…over the side rail of Titanic! Perfect, that is, until Ruby’s mother came upon them with several other of the society ladies traveling on the ship, including one Mrs Asha Diva StubbMeister. Ruby’s mother ‘looked at Rio like an insect’. Shortly, the dinner call came, and it was time to dress for evening. The ladies all departed to their state rooms, save Mrs StubbMeister. She leaned toward Rio, as would a fellow conspirator, and said, “Son, do you have the slightest comprehension of what you’re doing? You’re about to go into the snake pit. I hope you’re ready. What are you planning to wear?” Rio looked down at his clothes and back up at her. He hadn’t thought of that. ~~ Mrs StubbMeister simply told Rio to come to her stateroom before dinner. She had men’s suits and jackets and formal wear strewn all over the place when Rio arrived. She was the wife of a descendant of a long line of German Beer Barons who had moved to America to make his own fortune in Omaha. And she had everything in three sizes for her husband because she ‘never knew how much he’d been eating while she was away’. When he had finished dressing, she told Rio, “You shine up like a new penny. Remember, the only thing they respect is money, so just act like you’ve got a lot of it and you’re in the club!” ~~~~ Rio was standing at the bottom of the Grand Staircase rehearsing the refined behaviors of a gentlebird in high company (withOUT the benefit of actual lady and gentlebirds as part of his rehearsal) when Ruby appeared at the top of the staircase. Rio met her halfway down, took her wingtip in his, and gently touched his beak to it. “I saw that in a nickelodeon once, and I always wanted to do it.”
