Derek Orton
Well... welcome back!

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 Nurse had a life outside of school... Austin had a different last name... what???

"Dude!" Derek was floored. This was cool news! So much better than his stupid summer. But he didn't want to think about that. And Austin had helped give him other things to concentrate on.

"Are they getting married then," he nodded towards Austin's brother and the nurse. Weird. Marriage. Relationships. What were his parents before they got married? His mom never worked, did she? She came from a wealthy Argentine family. And dad... people always said they looked alike, even though Derek had darker hair and skin. Had there been another person he was engaged to before Mom? How did they even meet? Derek suddenly wanted to know. He had a million questions, but no one that could answer.

"I can't believe I don't even know you. Dude, so not cool." Derek's tones didn't match the words. In all honesty, it was the first amusing thing since before summer.

  • 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'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

                  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
                  • That's betterAustin, Sun Oct 10 3:35pm
                    Austin rolled his eyes. Girls. They were always the same, either best friends or worst enemies. They could never just ignore each other then get along to play a Quidditch game like guys could. 'Well, ... more
