“What are wewe doing?” Derek asked curious at Damon who was sitting between the wooden planks in his bedroom.
“I’m trying to fix the bed” Damon alisema obvious.
“Can I help?” Derek asked excited. Without awaiting an answer he kneeled and picked up a nail and hammer. While he hammered he tried to make a subtle conversation. “So, wewe and your girlfriend, how long have wewe been together?”
“Two months and a half” Damon said. “Why?”
Derek shrugged. “Nothing. Just curious” he said. “And have you…you know?”
Damon looked at Derek, frowning. “No, and I wouldn’t tell you, either”
Derek raised his hands, almost hitting Damon with the hammer. “Okay, no offense” he said. “So, you’re still early on. You’re still at the stage where wewe need a lot of privacy, so wewe can build your relationship”
Damon shook his head confused. “What are wewe getting at?”
Derek looked around. “You have a nice room, here” he alisema admiring. “And wewe have other bedrooms that are not used and now that your girlfriend is sleeping in your room another room is destined to be forgotten. Quite a shame if wewe ask me” he alisema looking meaningful at Damon.
“No” Damon said, scribbling up. “No way. I told wewe wewe weren’t staying over. Thanks a lot for the information, now go”
“I’m not talking about staying over. I’m talking about moving in here” Derek alisema excited. “But not forever” he quickly added when Damon looked at him as if he could get a moyo attack any minute. “Just until after we got rid of Veronica and her army, ‘cause wewe can go out on a limb that she’s not doing this all kwa herself. And if we have to do this whole training thing it would be a lot easier and convenient if we lived under the same roof. Of course I will not be around when wewe and your girlfriend need some privacy and I won’t be any bother. I’ll even do chores if wewe want me to”
Damon looked away, to avoid Derek’s hopeful expression. “Don’t wewe have a family?” he alisema frowning, trying not to sound too annoyed.
Derek shut his eyes. “My parents are dead” he alisema dry. “Vampire”
“Oh” Damon alisema sheepish.
“I have nowhere else to go” Derek alisema sad.
Damon let out a deep sigh. “I’m going to regret this, aren’t I?” he groaned.
“Probably” Derek smirked.
“You’re taking the room that’s farthest from mine” Damon alisema with a tone that didn’t endure any objection.
