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 shit, and right on into enjoying the conversation.

What got her was the werewolf comment. If she wanted, he could introduce her, he could make her a werewolf, and then she could go to their parties. If she let him bite her, she could play with them. Obviously he was not a werewolf, it was just the idea she didn't like. Do something for him, he'd do something for her. That was the way she'd seen Dana live for eleven years, and now it was starkly apparent in front of her. It rubbed her the wrong way.

"I'm dating Jake Grimm-Batrice," she lied. She didn't move his hand, though, or move away from it. It was easy to say it, he was the first person who jumped into her head. Then, with another wry grin, "And he's a shape-shifter, so I'm thinking I'm going to become real tight with Nurse Mason, between the two of you."

    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

      • We would make an ominous teamDerek Orton, Sat Feb 19 12:41pm
        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

                    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
