B/N: This has been revised! :D All hail spell check and my own updated vocabulary!


The party had started, and the famous Annie Warbucks was nowhere to be seen. This didn't surprise anyone of course, for she was often known for wondering off. But at this moment, Annie had actually gotten into a fight with a fellow rich teenager. His name was Maxamillion Extran or Max for short. He had inherited Extran Industries from his grandfather, who had seen his potential as a child. Max was a bit mischievous though, and enjoyed picking on Annie every time he ran into her at a party. At first he had kept a distance but he enjoyed pushing her buttons to much to stay away for too long. But now, unbeknownst to himself, he had crossed into dangerous territory with Annie Warbucks, the heiress of the entire Warbucks industry.

"Don't you DARE saying anything bad about my Daddy Warbucks!" Annie yelled her long, red, curly pigtails bouncing behind her head. Her eyes were narrowed down, glaring at him menacingly as she held up her fists at him, like she always did when she threatened someone. This caused Max to take a step back, but he quickly regained his composer and took a step closer to her.

"Oh yeah? And what's a poor, little, red-headed mouse like you going to do about it?" Max sneered at her, as her face grew just as red as her hair, but not as a blush, but pure anger for making fun of her. She pulled back her arm, and let it fly at his face. The next thing he knew he was on the ground, blood pouring from his nose, as she drew back her fist and glared down at him, as he sat on the floor a bit shocked, but chuckling lightly. He had never been hit before, let alone by that of a girl, not to mention head wounds bled the most so this would be quite a memorable moment. Servants of all sorts ran over to him to help him try to get the blood off, but he quickly shooed them away, grabbing a handkerchief and holding it over his nose. He watched her as she quickly left from behind the bushes in the garden where they had tried to stay away from the party, so as not to disrupt it. After making sure the bleeding was stopping or at least slowing, he peeked around the bushes to see where she had run off too.

Over at a table by a large fountain that was spewing different colored streams of water, an old man sat with the young heiress, chatting animatedly. She was truly gifted with the ability to go from hitting a guy in the face, to talking to one of the world's greatest financial CEO's. And by the looks of things, and the large document of paper Annie had asked a personal servant of hers to fetch, she was planning on making business negotiations. A fighter and a thinker. Max let a smile peel across his face when he noticed Annie glance back at him, but she just glared daggers into him. "If looks could kill."

"You would have died long before you met Miss Warbucks, I assure you sir." Said a tall, lanky looking fellow, in a fine trimmed black suit, which made him look professional and dignified.

"That's no good, James. What a boring life she would be living without me to… liven' things up a bit." He gave his butler a wicked grin that only brought a sigh to the man's lips. But before any more words were exchanged, Max turned his attention back to Annie.

This girl intrigued Max ever since her first saw her. He had never met such a daring and bold girl, but who was also intelligent and could make contracts with such upstanding ease. He wanted to know more about her. He was about her age when the story about her being adopted and about her kidnapping came about. He had been worried when he heard about it, even without knowing the girl personally. But when he met her, she was nothing as he had expected. He heard rumors that she was a frail girl, who had been terribly scared with such a difficult upbringing. After actually meeting her and observing her, he realized that these were just pure nonsense, someone has assumed.

After a while, the party began dimming down a bit, much to Max's pleasure. He told a servant to tell Annie that a business associate wanted to meet in one of the board rooms in the building of the parties hosting. If she came, that told him she had stupid judgment, to go alone, but if she came with other people, then he would simply say someone had tricked them, and that he was just taking a nap, away from all the noise.

"Hello?" Annie asked as she opened the door, shutting it behind herself and looking around." Is anyone here?" Max smiled as he stood behind a beam that was on the side of the room. She wandered more into the room, but just as she passed the beam, he reached out and grabbed her, pulling her back. She jumped of course, but he let her go, waiting to see what she had to say.

"You?! What the heck! Why did you call me away from the party?! Jeez! You're the most incompetent, snobbish, rich boy I've ever had the displeasure of meeting. You make fun of my father, you call me out to harass me, and I can't believe you still have the guts to stand in front of me! I hate you! I hate you! I hate yo-" But she was stopped mid-sentence as her lips were more occupied with that of Max's. While she had been hollering at Max, he had taken the pleasure of wrapping his left arm around her waist and bringing his right one up to her cheek, pulling her into a kiss. Annie stood shocked for a moment before moaning out a, "ssss-sto…. Ma… Ma-" But every time she tried to speak, he would kiss her even deeper. She wasn't sure what to do. She had never kissed a boy before, and wasn't sure when to breathe, or hold her breath, or just how to plain kiss him. Finally she had to push him off her so she could breath, her face was beat red, this time from embarrassment, which was something rare for Annie to experience. Her eyes had become dazed and half lidded as she gasped air, while he just smirked at her as she stood on wobbly knees, weak in his arms.

"Heh… Did I just take your first kiss?" He asked with a devilish smile. Annie's mind was a mess. She didn't know what was going on, where she was, or even why she was so out of it. Max brought her face back up to his. "Wanna do it again?" He asked, as she stared up into his eyes, not sure what to say. But in that instant everything went rushing back to her, and her instinct made her arms flail up and push him away from her. Annie stood still for a minute or two, before turning and running off towards the door, but in this time Max had been able to recover, grabbing her wrist and pulling her back to him. "Oi… Why are you running away? I'm not that bad of a kisser…" He said with a more serious face.

"Stop messing with me! Leave me alone! I'll report you to the police for sexually harassing me!" She yelled out as he pushed her up against a nearby wall, grinning at her happily. He leaned in and kissed her again, before moving towards her neck, biting at the skin and kissing it softly. Annie could feel her body giving into him as she began sliding down towards the floor. He pulled one of her long pigtails out, letting her long red hair flow to her shoulders, as she moaned out from his kisses. "Stop. Stop it M-maaaax…" She slurred out as she breathed heavily, feeling her other pigtail come undone.

"I just want to say, don't ever wander off by yourself, idiot. What if it had been some creepy old man and it was him who was touching you like this, not me." He whispered against her blushing skin. She winced at the thought of it, her hands squeezing against his shoulders as she took in ragged breathes. He grinned, as he pushed her head back against the wall and resumed their game of tongue tennis.

Just as she was getting into it, the door flew open, and there stood Punjab, Annie's favorite right-hand man, who had been her friend since she first stayed at Mr. Warbucks house, entertaining her, and helping to teach her how to fight for herself. "Annie. It's time to go." He said to her, with a straight face. Annie's face lit up red again, as she pushed Max away dashing out the door as fast as possible. Before Max could go after her, Punjab was squatting down next to him with an emotionless face. "Make her cry, and it'll be the last thing you do, regardless of who you are."

Max sat on the ground for a full minute before pushing himself up and wiping himself off. He licked his lips with a grin before straightening his shirt and walking out the door coolly. He walked past Punjab, trying to hide his smirk, but the tall man only stood silent. Max headed down the hall that lead to the other side of his families vast convention center where their meeting was being held. He had wandered around it countless times, and this moment would be no exception. He had someone to meet.

"Max?" A voice called out from one of the rooms on the side of the hall, drawing Max's attention from his journey.

"What are you doing down hear you stupid idiot?" Max asked, venom dripping off his tongue. It was apparent that whoever was behind this door was not a favored person of the young billionaire.

"Um, I wanted to look around a bit more. No one comes this far in anyways. Did something happen?" The voice, a young male, asked from behind the closed door that Max had turned to lean against. The person who stood behind this door, if discovered, would probably cause one of the biggest scandals of the year, and Max couldn't have that. He wouldn't allow such a thing to befall his name.

"It's nothing. I was just attending to a guest." He said with a grin as he licked his lips, imagining Annie blushing and embarrassed, with a fierce, defiant look in her eyes. He knew if he had gone to far he would have had a broken nose before long. Most all the girls he had ever sought after would gladly be in her position, but she was different. She didn't want that. She didn't desire him.

That's what made him want her.

"So why are you down here now?" The boy on the other side of the door asked causing Max to frown as his thoughts were pulled away.

"I have an assignment for you." Max began, looking both ways down the hall to make sure they were alone. "Are you up to it?"

"Yes, Mr. Extran."
