Where's your old soul?
Sat Feb 19, 2011 5:47pm

And there was Damon Clay. Sloane watched him, occasionally out of the corner of her eye, until she felt him hovering a few feet away from her.

It struck her for the first time, that he might actually come close enough to approach her.

Damon had never initiated a greeting of any sort with Sloane, aside form muttered hellos and how-are-yous. Sloane had approached him once, in the Rakin common room, but without even the slightest intention of doing more than walking up to him and asking how his summer was, her way of saying that there was no reason she didn't usually chat with him. Just that they didn't chat. Their parents wanted them engaged, that was hardly reason to stop and make small talk.

She did not at first answer his question. Sloane gave Damon another cool, long look, a hello of sorts, and then observed, "You look well."

She didn't actually know what to make of it.

"I'm bored," she admitted, with a small, guilty smile, and then quickly arranged her face back into a much more stoic mask. Though, her amusement came more in mild surprise when she said, looking at his face even in the dark, "You got some sun."

  • What about 30000000000000?Damon Clay, Sat Feb 19 4:30pm
    He'd spent the summer with his aunt and uncle. But not Willow or Jenna; Jenna was living with some boyfriend of hers, and Willow was just... not there. And he sort of liked it. He liked the loving,... more

        He thought he wouldn't get anything out of her, except for one of those long stares, but then Sloane told Damon he looked well. He remembered his aunt giving him an approving look one night before he ... more
        • I guess that's old enough for meSloane, Sat Feb 19 6:58pm
          None of this was anything Sloane had expected, at all. She liked to think she was taking the unexpectedness gracefully, but failed to procure more of a reaction from herself than reassurance that she ... more
          • You guess?Damon, Sat Feb 19 7:54pm
            Maybe he was being too forward, talking too much. Possibly, this was too unlike him, but he'd just had a good summer, and he felt almost optimistic. He was still worried about his mum though, and... more
            • If there was one thing Sloane was good at, and really enjoyed, it was coming up with plans and making them go just her way. She liked to outsmart everyone else. Develop things so intricate, no one... more

                Who knew Drake? A lot of people, but he supposed he'd have to think about the people he kept closest to him, whether they would be enemies or work partners... never friends; he didn't have any, just... more

                  It sounded like a complete challenge, a secret that everyone wanted to keep hidden. Sloane was enthralled. The Pureblood world was full of secrets, but they all had about the same amount of curiosity ... more

                    It was half obvious why they actually were scared; there were death threats, the Unforgivable Curses had been used too. Damon had seen them in use, at the tender age of eight. He wasn't about to tell ... more

                      Delilah broke away from Shelby and Torn at exactly the moment Shelby whipped out her sketchbook and started being a weirdo again. "Well I'm going to go say hi," she announced, and with that, marched... more
