Remy sipped his drink and looked around the room. People dressed in expensive clothing milled around the hall, looking at paintings and admiring sculptures.

The only thing Remy was admiring was the brunette across the room. Her hair fell around her shoulders in brown waves while two white streaks were curled in ringlets near her temples. A simple yet elegant emerald green dress flowed around her body, accenting her curves and showing off her height. White gloves ran from the tips of her fingers to past where her dress cut off at the shoulders. Around her neck lay a black necklace with a simple green circular pendant that matched the bracelets that circled her wrists.

Remy smiled and picked up a flute of champagne from a passing waiter. Slowly he made his way over to her side of the room, a smile forming on his lips. He stepped up behind her and moved his arm around her, so as to put the champagne glass in her line of site. He lowered his head to whisper in her ear, "What's somebody like you, doin in a place like this? Say, did you come alone, or did you bring all your friends? Say, what's your name, what you drinking, I think I know what you're thinking. Baby what's your sign, tell me yours I'll tell you mine."

The girl spun around, nearly knocking the drink from Remy`s hand. She stared up at him, shock radiating from her features. Then her brown eyes went flat and her mouth set into a hard line. "Excuse me?" she asked. Remy's smile grew. "Hey," he said. She stared at him. "So really, what's a girl like you doing here?" he asked. She narrowed her eyes. "A girl like me?" Remy shrugged slightly. "You look too young to appreciate these works of art," he explained. Her eyes widened. "Too young?" she asked. Remy held up his hands. "No offense."

She rolled her eyes and turned away from him. "Whatever," she replied. As she started to walk off Remy called after her. "So what's your name?" She looked over her shoulder at him, flicking her hair aside as her brown eyes bored into his. "Anna-Marie, but you can call me Rogue." Then she turned away from him and he lost her in the crowd.
