Derek Orton
I'm nothing, if not Ominous
Sat Feb 19, 2011 10:38am

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 that. Some other things too. She seemed to find teaching Derek how to flirt with her entertaining. But he'd picked up quickly enough. Getting to kiss her was reward enough at the end of her little lessons.

Speaking of lessons, Kim brought up last year. He leaned back again, rolling his eyes, but the smile came back soon enough after she teased. "I could introduce you if you want," he said. "You know, being a werewolf isn't so bad. Just one bite. Maybe," he squinted his eyes, moving his hand towards her neck, "right there." His thumb moved on the skin just below her ear. "Then you can come to our monthly parties." He kept his hand where it was.

  • That just sounds ominousKim, Sat Feb 19 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... more

      • Ha! Um, sure.Kim, Sat Feb 19 10:59am
        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
          • I like the sound of thatKim, Sat Feb 19 7:26pm
            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
            • Team, team, teamDerek Orton, Sat Feb 19 10:26pm
              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
              • Go, go, go!Kim, Sun Feb 20 10:21am
                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
                    • Come on, you can be captain!Derek Orton, Sun Feb 20 2:34pm
                      Derek didn't kiss tentatively, a peck on the lips and a turn to leave, unsure how it would be accepted. No, Ramona had taught him not to do that. "Don't be so nervous," she told him in Spanish. He'd... more
