Derek Orton
Harding? Did you forget your last name?
Sat Oct 9, 2010 11:13am

Derek took a big bite of his pizza. It was only half chewed when Austin asked what was up. "Nothing," he said, figuring he was being asked about summer. "We were out in San Fran, but only for a week. I thought about sending you an owl, but it was for my cousin's wedding."

He hated going to those weddings. They were damn boring. And this one, worse than the rest. Dad was there, though, and he'd watched as they held hands. He tried to remember if they looked happy. He thought they had. But really...

Derek was at school now. He didn't want to think about that. "How was your summer? Penny free?"

Austin practically came back from last Christmas break dancing, he'd been so happy about the break up. Derek celebrated with him, going to get some butterbeer from the Cerise.

          Derek laughed at Penny being gone. This was a real distraction. One he hadn't had for ages. He always did like Austin. It was lucky with all the jerks in Rakin that he got one of the cool ones. But... more

              It was like one of those Spanish soap operas that Rosie, their cook, watched int he kitchen while she worked. Derek's eyes widened at each new piece of information. Jered was Chase... the school... more

                  "Well good," he said. "I don't want to deal with someone new just because your brother's here now." He finished off the pizza in a few large bites. "And I don't think I'll do quidditch this year," he ... more

                      "Why?" Derek asked with a bit of a chuckle. "Seriously, I'd rather watch anyway. We'll have to go play a couple rounds of our own anyway." That's how he enjoyed Quidditch most of the time. With a... more
