Red Redemption

It was always set for her. She knew she came from a proper family and that meant that her parents would choose her husband for her. Why they chose this man though was beyond her. He was a coward and at best he was barely more handsome than a goat. That notwithstanding though, here she was in the middle of a soiree that was celebrating her engagement.

Her corset made it hard to breath, or eat, and so she was famished but had a glass of wine in hand as she stared around the room looking about as bored as she felt. She wanted her fiance to ask her to dance, or anyone for that matter just so perhaps the evening wouldn't be a complete waste.

That prospect was slowly turning into an unlikelihood as she took another sip of her wine realizing she was holding an empty glass.

Red was still one of the younger members of the band, and hence tended to clean up better than many. So he'd been one of the small handful chosen to be sent into the fray of the fancy soiree to scope things out. He'd minded himself, mostly, but after a while the time dragged a little as he milled. 

It was catching sight of the girl hovering across the room that shifted his attention a bit away from the end goal. It wasn't the first time he'd taken notice of the debutante all this was about, but it was the first he'd noticed she wasn't being swarmed by gushing women. In a move that was bolder than it probably should have been Red seized onto the new means of entertainment.

A minute or so later he sidled up along side her to offer a replacement to the empty glass in hand.

Violet looked to the man offering her a new glass of wine. She set the empty glass aside as she took the one offered and looked to the handsome man around her age. “Thank you,” she said. It was a larger saving grace than he assumed he knew.

Red responded by flashing a charming smile that even the hardened women that he'd grown accustomed to being around responded to, let alone inexperienced girls, "Of course. Be a shame to leave a lady like you in the wind at her own event," the line of his mouth quirked into something more akin to a smirk, "seems no one else here can gather up the nerve." 

Of course he didn't know that for all intents and purposes she was already engaged. Not that it would have stopped him.

The smile nearly reminded her of her fathers snile when he wasn’t exactly being honest with her but he was charming enough so she took a sip of the new glass of wine as he told her that he was the only one with the nerve to talk to her.

”does that also mean that you’re the only one with the nerve to dance with me stranger?”

Violet ignored the confused look from her mother across the room as she and the man started to dance. This was the first fun thing she did this evening and since she was about to be shipped off to be the wife of a boring man she was damn well going to enjoy every moment of it.
