That just sounds ominous
Sat Feb 19, 2011 10:22am

Conney Island? Kim had heard of it, like whispers of a place that might or might not have existed. Part of her wanted to go, while the rest dug her heels in and refused. Pitts' was her world. This was her place. She didn't need any others, or anything better. Still she found herself leaning closer to hear Derek speak.

"Oh, yeah, I go shopping all the time," she answered, somewhere between an obvious lie and a joke. Actually, she hadn't been able to get new clothes since the beginning of the summer. She figured with Grace gone, Winchester would be in charge of her stipend, but she hadn't gotten any information about that, and didn't want to ask. Winchester seemed frazzled, anyway, Kim figured she'd just wait, or live without it. Hell, she probably could. She was allowed a little bit each term from the Attire, and that still worked. That's where the new jeans had come from, after she grew out of her old ones and panicked.

She shrugged about the jeans. Yeah, they were new, so what of it? She didn't want to take the pride in them she felt. She didn't want to be the girl who was desperate for nice clothes like that, or new clothes at all. "You weren't in classes a lot last spring," she said, but with a crooked grin, added, "Don't worry. I told everyone you got bit by a werewolf junkie."

  • Yes, should I pick the game?Derek , Sat Feb 19 1:11am
    Derek moved as Kim put a hand on his chest, sitting on the ledge wall while Kim moved out of the way. His hands moved from Kim's shoulders and stayed on the wall too. He crossed his legs at the... more

        Derek smiled wider at the comment about shopping all the time. "I never pinned you for a mall rat," he teased, raising his eyebrows once and letting them come back down again. Ramona had taught him... more

          Derek was flirting with her. Kim got that. He was nothing like Howl, a fact she wanted to blame him for. But she was barreling straight past being relieved that he didn't care she kept saying random... more

            She was trying to put him off, but didn't move. Neither did Derek. It was something Ramona said girls did--playing hard to get. Trying to send message when they really meant something else. So Derek... more

              Kim was temporarily stunned, lost for words, when Derek insulted her imaginary boyfriend. Fiercely, almost impulsively, she agreed, "He's not-" and then instantly realized that she shouldn't have... more

                Derek could tell he struck a chord. She knew Jake was boring. That was obvious enough. Who didn't know Jake was boring? He shrugged off whatever defense she'd stopped as she had. He couldn't help but ... more

                  Kim could not take the threat of Abby seriously, especially since she had made up dating Jake in the first place. It was growing to be one of the most brilliant things about her reputation, she had... more

                    Thoughts of last year were enough that Derek didn't really feel like talking anymore. And her non-response in the form of a noise made everything seem quiet and still. The party around them didn't... more
                    • Ew. I don't think so.Kim, Sun Feb 20 1:25pm
                      It scared her, a little. She vaguely, from childhood, knew men who had these smooth moves, and could remember seeing them with Dana or her momís friends. Bad news, the women would say, but laugh and... more
