“Hey, what?” she said, trying to act disinterested.
“How’s it goin’?” he said nervously. “Nice night, isn’t it?”
She would have laughed at his pathetic attempts at a pick up line if she hadn’t turned around and looked at him. God, he was adorable. With his blonde hair and bright blue eyes shining in the moonlight she felt her legs turn to jello. She cursed herself for getting hung over about a guy. She was Rogue after all. Why would she care if some dumb jock paid her any attention? Then again, it could have been the alcohol playing tricks with her head.
“Yeah, it’s a nice night,” was all she could think of to say.
“Would ya like t’dance?” he asked.
“Well, ah’m just kinda hangin’ out here is all,” she said. Then she saw a hurt look come to his face. Hesitantly, she said, “Okay, what’s the harm in one dance.” He took her hand and led her back into the house. There was a fast song playing, but it was hard to make it out since the other kids were making so much noise. They danced through two songs until Rogue suggested that they go somewhere and talk.
They went back outside to the porch after getting fresh drinks. “Some party, huh?” Cody asked not knowing what to say.
“Yeah, ah wasn’t even gonna come tonight,” she said, taking a sip of her drink. “Ah’m glad ah did.”
“Me too,” he said, coming closer to her. “Ah’d like t’kiss ya right now,” he said nervously.
“Then stop askin’ an’ do it,” she said.
He leaned towards her slightly touching her lips. Rogue liked the soft feel of his lips on hers and craved more. She put her arms around his neck deepening the kiss, but something strange happened. She felt a slight pull. Suddenly her mind flooded with images, memories not her own. Before she knew what was happening Cody lay unconscious on the ground.
“Oh, god, no!” she shouted. “Somebody, help!” The images kept pouring into her head, until she couldn’t focus anymore. She saw her friend Tara run up to her. She shook her head violently trying to get the images out of her mind.
