Flashback Scene/character change

Start

Rogue boarded the plan with no problem. The small airport on the coast of Portugal was very lax on airport security. She breezed past the unoccupied seats toward her seat in the very back of the coach section. Normally she would have flown herself but she was so exhausted lately that she couldn't seems to find the energy to do anything but concentrate on her powers. In the past three months she had worked and worked, until she was constantly on the edge if exhaustion, but she could now control her absorbing ability. She was so happy that she had bought something special just for Remy, something that they would use the second they were alone together. She had been in a constant state of longing since they had kissed in the Med Lab. It was that kiss that encouraged her to learn to control her powers more. Rogue wanted to be intimate with Remy and knew that to do so she would have to be able to control her powers unconsciously for long periods of time.

Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it ok
There's always some reason to feel "not good enough"
And it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction, oh beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
They may be empty and weightless, and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

Remy felt something grow in the pit of his stomach. A sense of something coming closer. It wasn't something bad, in fact it filled him with love and joy...he contemplated it for a few seconds and realized that it was. Rogue was coming closer he could sense her. She was waiting for him, longing to hold him just as he longed to hold her. Remy glanced up at his class, and smiled. The class would end in a few minuets, he decided that he would let the kids out early and go find Rogue.

"Alright guys, Remy has to go some were so... no homework and get out of here." He walked out of the room after his student sand followed his sense of Rogue to the airport.

In the arms of the Angels, fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

Remy watched in silence as Rogue grabbed her bags from the baggage claim. The three months had been good to her. Her hair was down and longer, gone was her gothic fa├žade instead light earth tones accentuated her beautifully tan skin. She was a sight to behold, like water to a man who had through the desert living for months without sustenance. She looked lost for a moment before she turned toward him. A smile broke out across her face, so bright that it illuminated all of the shadows around the room, turn all of the colors into more vibrant shades and filled him with warmth that drove out three months of longing.

So tired of the straight line, and everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
It don't make no difference, escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

She ran towards him, trying to keep her bags with her as she came. When they reached each other she dropped her bag and embraced him. He was about to say something but she covered his mouth with hers. The kiss was infused with three months of restless nights, three months of lust and desperate wanting, but most importantly the kiss was filled with the promise of years to come years that would fill his heart with love. Remy almost wanted to cry at the sheer intensity of the kiss. When they pulled away, Remy rested his forehead against hers.

"I love you so much Rogue. I can't breath without you, I can't exist without you, anything you want me to do I'll do it, anything you want me to change about myself I'll change it, just promise that we'll be together forever." His voice was husky and horse, his lips brushed hers with every word. Rogue loved him even more for his confession, that he was willing to change himself just to be with her was so amazing that she wanted to cry. Rogue kissed him again and then responded to his affection with her own.

"Remy, I wouldn't change anything about you, and I would give up everything in the universe to get to spend even one moment with you, I love you."

In the arms of the Angels, far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are In the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here
pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie

Rogue smiled at him as they stood in each others arms, suddenly her brows contorted in confusion.

"How did you know were I was?"

A smile lit Remy's face he couldn't help but cause a little mischief.

"Instincts of a thief, chere, instincts of a thief..."
