Derek Orton
Maybe you're just having an identity crisis
Sat Oct 9, 2010 11:39am

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 then Austin stopped making sense. "Sarah?" but he couldn't ask any more than that, because Austin had gone on about Quidditch...

"Jered? You know the coach already? What did you go hit him up for being captain already?"

To be honest, Derek didn't care much about being on the team. Now that he had his betting ring set up, there really wasn't any use. He couldn't take bets if he was on the team. He didn't think he'd even bother trying out agains this year.

  • 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... more

      • Not now, but I wasAustin, Sat Oct 9 12:01pm
        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
          • It's great to be here!Austin, Sat Oct 9 3:19pm
            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
            • Can't say I agree entirelyDerek Orton, Sat Oct 9 3:32pm
              "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
              • That's a shockerAustin, Sat Oct 9 3:54pm
                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
                • Who wants cake?Derek Orton, Sun Oct 10 8:37am
                  "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
                    • Never. How about dem Dodgers?Derek Orton, Sun Oct 10 3:22pm
                      Derek asked for a large ice cream sundae. Nuts fell at a steady pace with the chocolate syrup and whipped cream. He only got one bite in before Austin asked about Abby. He shrugged. 'Who knows," he... more
