Bentley’s (an elite gambling hell)
Bishop Black was not a man to obsess over certain comforts. He could
appreciate a good brandy or an exceptional Scotch, but he was just as partial
to gin or vodka or whisky. As long as his meals filled an empty stomach, he
didn’t care if he ate the finest French cuisine or a dry loaf of crusty bread. He
didn’t worry much about the quality of horseflesh or the spring of a stylish
phaeton if it got him where he needed to go. And when it came to women, his
attraction had never been limited to a certain type. He’d enjoyed them all—in
every way imaginable.
But after five years of traveling under varying and often challenging
conditions across multiple countries and a few continents, now that he’d
returned to the only place he’d ever considered calling home, all he could
think of was the familiar comfort of his old bedroom.
Before he’d left London to discover the world (and himself), his greatest
concern was that he might be burning a bridge behind him. But Roderick
Bentley—Bishop’s longtime employer—had quickly corrected him on that
“You’ll always have a place here, Bishop. No matter how far you go or
how long you’re away. This is your home.”
The older man couldn’t have possibly known how much that assurance
had meant to him. Mainly because Bishop had been sure to disguise his
gratitude with some flippant response.
Then again, perhaps Roderick had known.
Bentley’s, the elite gambling club Roderick had built out of nothing, was
home to an array of misfits and castaways. The club might be a pleasure
ground of gambling and vice for its aristocratic members, but it was a family
to those who worked and lived within its walls.
And the bedroom Bishop kept there had been his from the day he’d
arrived on the club’s doorstep as a lad looking for work. Though it had been
five years since he’d last stepped inside the club, he had no doubt Roderick’s
word would stand and the room would be as he’d left it—covered in sheets
and a bit of dust perhaps. But dust had become a relative term to Bishop after
the months he’d spent in the Sahara Desert a couple years back.
The club was still alight with activity despite it being nearly dawn, so
Bishop took extra care to avoid any common areas and the hallways where
servants were most likely to traverse. With the many divergences possible
during travel, it would’ve been difficult to predict exactly when he’d reach
London. There had always been the chance he’d detour for some reason or
another, significantly delaying his plans. It had certainly happened before.
So, he hadn’t bothered sending word to Roderick or anyone else at Bentley’s
of his impending return.
