Nope, just didn't want people to know who I really am
Sat Oct 9, 2010 11:30am

Austin cast Derek a side glance before shrugging and dropping it. If the boy didn't want to talk then Austin wasn't about to push it. That wasn't a guy thing to do. Sure, he talked to Jered about such things, but that was because Jered was older and his guardian. It was one of his jobs. So, with a mouth full of chicken, Austin forgot it.

'It was awesome!' he all but shouted once he'd swallowed the food in his mouth, laughing with the mention of Penny. 'Yeah, she's gone for good, thank Merlin. I think she tried to stalk him back at Easter, but Jered fobbed her off. And we did so much this break. Boston, Maine, Cali. We even did Disneyland 'cause Sarah wanted to. It was so tacky but cool too, you know,' he added with another shrug.

'And this year will be excellent too. I can guarantee to place on the Quidditch team this year, you too, if you want. Jered said he would have to treat me fairly, but I know what buttons to push. So, want a spot?' he asked.

    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. ... more

        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

          Austin frowned at Derek again until the realization hit him and his features slacked as his mouthed opened up wide and round. With all the commotion of last year, he had never gotten around to... 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

              Austin grinned at Derek's reacted, sure there was food sticking through his teeth but he didn't care. It was such a relief to be able to tell people about the crazy life he'd been living past 5 and a ... 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

                  Austin's face truly fell when Derek rejected the idea of playing this year. He didn't even notice the piece of chicken fall from his fork he was about to eat. He just stared at his friend in... 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
                    • Changing the subject?Austin, Sun Oct 10 9:08am
                      Austin relaxed and went back to eating. As long as they played together in some manner, he was cool. And it would probably be more fun playing one on one. And perhaps he could use Derek as practice... more
