Layla Lolen better known as, Safire, to those mesmerized by her belly dancing always dreamed of becoming an author. As a child she was forced to leave Alaska to be adopted by a couple in Vermont. The other girls teased Layla to the point of tears over her distinct "look". Dark chocolate brown hair, brown eyes, and olive skin was not the norm in her new surroundings. It was hard being the only eskimo around. Luckily, she had the movie, "Annie" to comfort her. Layla dreamed that one day her very own Daddy Warbucks would come and save her. She spent her childhood living a different life through books, hoping that one day she would write her own books for people everywhere to lose themselves in.

Safire, a true Scorpio at heart, never could let go of a dream. Her signature move was the game she would play with her veil, held by the right hand, to hide and reveal her face using snake arms, while she arched her back in mystery. What was she thinking? The men liked to believe she was secretly signaling them. Did she know she was beautiful? Of course, but she would never admit to it. It was her power. And, for it to be truly successful she must never let on to the fact that she was aware of it.

Always ready to defend another, Safire only defended herself on rare occasions. She could care less what other people thought about her, as long as it wasn't someone who she trusted or admired. Rarely, did one ever fall into that category in the first place, especially if they were male. She had been burned too many times. She knew what men wanted her for, it had been made painfully obvious through her past relationships.

It was Safire's last dance for the night. Her saphire dragon fly belly ring flickered in the light as she shimmied off stage.

"Finally," she thought "I can go get my favorite Cobb salad and relax with a nice Strawberry Daiquiri. Tomorrow, I'll start all over again with a nice hot cup of columbian coffee, four sugars, and a touch of vanilla creamer."

"I wish I would have never stopped daydreaming, to learn the art of men. What a waste it turned out to be." :o
