“What are آپ doing?” Derek asked curious at Damon who was sitting between the wooden planks in his bedroom.
“I’m trying to fix the bed” Damon کہا 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, آپ and your girlfriend, how long have آپ 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 آپ need a lot of privacy, so آپ can build your relationship”
Damon shook his head confused. “What are آپ getting at?”
Derek looked around. “You have a nice room, here” he کہا admiring. “And آپ 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 آپ ask me” he کہا looking meaningful at Damon.
“No” Damon said, scribbling up. “No way. I told آپ آپ 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 کہا excited. “But not forever” he quickly added when Damon looked at him as if he could get a دل attack any minute. “Just until after we got rid of Veronica and her army, ‘cause آپ can go out on a limb that she’s not doing this all سے طرف کی 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 آپ and your girlfriend need some privacy and I won’t be any bother. I’ll even do chores if آپ want me to”
Damon looked away, to avoid Derek’s hopeful expression. “Don’t آپ have a family?” he کہا frowning, trying not to sound too annoyed.
Derek shut his eyes. “My parents are dead” he کہا dry. “Vampire”
“Oh” Damon کہا sheepish.
“I have nowhere else to go” Derek کہا 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 کہا with a tone that didn’t endure any objection.
