|Description|
Despite what everyone might think or say, not everything about Derek screams ‘delinquent’. He’s a bit on the lanky side, sporting the tall and thin appearance. His skin is surprisingly light in tone, with dozens of thin scars riddled along his back, shoulders, arms and legs. His hair is a dark brown then contrasts well with his striking grey eyes and rather full lips.
The ‘delinquent’ part of him is his tattoos: he’s got quite a few, thought they remain mostly on his arms. He also has black earrings in each ear.

|Personality|
{Rebellious, Energetic, Clumsy, Rough, Secretly Amiable}
Don’t judge a book by its cover is a good saying to go by when assessing Derek’s personality. If someone were to take a quick glance at him, they’d most likely label him as some sort of lawbreaking douchebag. Though there may be some truth in that statement, not all of it is accurate. When he’s around his ‘friends’, he’s always tough, showy, and bold. His chest is always puffed out in pride with a snide half smile plastered his face. His tone is daring along with the words that come out of his mouth. He speaks his mind, and takes pride in that, however, his smart mouth can get him into trouble sometimes. He’ll shallow and self centered, as if the world is his.

But, alone with Lottie, it seems as if Derek’s entire mindset shifts. With Lottie, he is tender and loving. His true smile shines through, masking the broken one he wears in public. He has truly fallen head-over-heels for her, both figuratively and literally. (Don’t ask. It involved a lot of falling and kissing. Ya know, icky stuff.) He cannot get enough of her and loves simply being able to come in physical contact with Lottie. Whether it be hugging, a hand on her waist, kissing, holding hands, it doesn’t matter: Derek loves it. Sometimes he can’t help be rather flirty and suggestive in the way he speaks, but its all in good fun. Derek has never shown this side to anyone else, and doesn’t really plan on it. Derek is very protective of Lottie and hates when anyone tries to get between the two. However, he must always do his best to stay on good terms with Lottie’s older brother, Marius, who is arguably more protective of Lottie than Derek is.

Derek’s got loads of energy, though he never seems to put the energy to good use. He’s got an awful sense of balance and tends to trip over his own feet, but brushes it off as if its nothing. He cannot stand being told what to do, so reverse psychology tends to work very well on him.

|History|
“Sadness, loneliness and isolation may just be words to some; simple, trivial emotions that will eventually fade away into nothingness and be overcome by the joy of a certain moment. But to others, those three words could describe a parasite of sorts, seeping in and consuming all of the happiness that it comes in contact with. The parasite destroys the flickering ember of hope and contentment within our hearts. Everyone, despite what they might say, has experienced times similar to this where the fire has died within them. It may seem like life itself is over, even though others explain that everything will get better soon enough. Those are just empty words to the truly lonely. An isolated soul must find their way themselves.”

Derek’s family had been broken from the start. His mother, Morgan, had not survived his birth, dying mere minutes after he had began breathing. This had crushed his father, and Alec had to fight for control over his emotions and pull himself together to raise his only child. He was a good father at first, taking good care of baby Derek with as much love and compassion a single father could provide. Derek grew up a healthy, rambunctious child, always getting into trouble because of his relentless energetic attitude. Things were as nice as they could get, and Derek just kept getting older and older.

But things began to change. As Derek aged on, he became much more independent, leaving Alec to his own devices. A simple fight between the two had rekindled the memory of Morgan’s death, causing a downward spiral in the family. Derek was thirteen now and more independent as ever. The fight left the two distant, and Alec began to disappear on most nights. At first, it wasn’t very bad. He’d just come home late and shut himself into his room. But his condition began to slowly deteriorate. He would come home, stumbling in a drunken stupor. Derek did his best to make himself scarce when his father was like this. But if Alec ever caught Derek, it was a nightmare. It was always verbal though, shouts and accusations from Alec tore through Derek’s heart, leaving him with immense guilt. His father blamed Derek for Morgan’s death.

Things just kept getting worse. Alec came home more and more drunk. Soon, things got physical. If Derek was in sight, Alec would go after him. Derek was usually bloodied and bruised by the time he went to bed. Sure, the physical wounds were bad, but the emotion ones were much worse.

It continued like this for years, and Derek never fought back and never went for help. People did indeed ask questions, but lying has always been one of his specialties. Plus, he was one of the clumsiest people around, so it wasn’t a surprise that he’d have some bruises. His grades were always below average and he always had a bad attitude.

It was around Derek’s 18th birthday that he died. The said it was because of all of the alcohol. Liver failure. He was the only one at his father’s funeral. He had no relatives on the island. His uncle caught wind of his brother’s death and told Derek that he would come live with him in California. He would go to a private school and get his life back on track. The offer seemed amazing and impossible to decline. But Derek didn’t just decline, he refused. It was around this time that Derek had begun to develop feelings for Lottie. She was the only thing keeping him sane. She was the most important thing in his life. No, she had changed his life. Derek begged his uncle, who happened to be moderately wealthy, for money. He would do anything to stay on the island and with his future love of his life.

His uncle made a deal. If Derek got a job and began saving up money to support himself, he would buy Derek a small house and pay for all of the utilities. Derek happily took the offer and quickly got a job at the only music store on the entire island.

And this is where Derek’s history mixes with the present. Lottie and Derek are now a couple, and Derek has never been happier. His grades are higher than they’ve ever been in his entire life. He just wishes things could go on like this forever...

What's Occurring: Summer Break

Image









ImageFor some reason or another he hadn't been able to sleep for the past couple of months, which really sucked. He could feel the tiredness of his eye bags, he didn't have to see them to know they were purple and blue shades. He knew if anyone saw them they'd freak and ask what was wrong, so he had been covering them with concealer her borrowed, without asking, from his mom. He was so tried and ready to just fall asleep, to doze off until a world that wasn't real, but lately that hadn't been working for him. Every night he tried keeping himself entertained by doing things likes reading, watching T.V., dancing, and just other pass times that made him forget about the fact he needed some sleep; at the moment he just watched the ceiling. He felt slightly lonely, but it's not like he could just call someone up at three in the morning, that thought had already crossed his mind and he had decided it wasn't the best idea. Most of his friends normally didn't rise until around two in the afternoon, meaning his loneliness might stretch longer then he wished.

"Ok, this is enough of silence!" Finally growing tired of the loneliness, he sat up and let his feet touch the warm white carpet. He's room wasn't very grand, in fact it was very simple. The bed was barely big enough to fit two people in and was pushed up against the right wall next to the door, the same wall was covered of pictures of so many things that Axel had taken, on the opposite wall there were random black and white poster of old famous stars and more pictures he had taken, there was also a keyboard in front of the window (which he was trying to teach himself to play); the view from the window was beautiful. Outside the window was nothing but soft moon light casting gentle shadows across tree tops and floating on the pond in his backyard. In the summer he'd swim in the pond with his friends, the closet thing to a lake he had ever seen since there were none on the island. In fact Axel lived out in a small area of woods with his brother.

Once he was completely up on his feet he walked over to the wooden door, pulled the golden nob, and then made his way down the hardwood floor. He only took about ten steps before reaching his destination and stopping in front of another wooden door. Raising a clenched fist, he hit the door before opening it himself. As soon as he entered the room he was attacked by coolness of the early morn, he immediately got cold chills all over his body. "Why the heck do you insist on sleeping out here? You're going to catch your death!" His voice was barely below a yell as he called to his brother, who for whatever reason thought it was okay to sleep in the screened-in patio during such cool mornings, and even sometimes during the winter. It was cold to Axel, but he knew his brother was probably finding warmth from the fact he was lying on a bed that he had drug in himself years ago and was bundled in a cocoon of covers.

"Why the heck did you come in here? I need my beauty rest!" Before Axel had time to react his brother had already brought his arm back and threw a pillow towards Axel's face. When it hit him it didn't hurt at all, it was the most comfortable thing ever either, but at least there was no pain. The pillow fell to the ground followed by his glasses. "If you had broken those I would have made you buy me new ones." "Like hell I would. Can't you go bother someone else?" He watched his brother flop around in the bed before quickly falling back to sleep. Thanks for the heart warming conversation. As the thought faded, wit the feeling of defeat he sighed and left the room shutting the door behind him.

Knock! Knock!

"Who the fuck could that be?" The groan from his brother's room only made him laugh as he walked through all the twist and turns to make his way to the living room to the door. Normal people probably would have thought it was crazy he was about to open the door at three in the morning without any weapon, but of course on the island everyone knew each other so there was no need to fear anything.

Opening the door he was kind of shocked to find a girl wearing a black leather jacket with silver studs. The outfit was sexy in it's own right: a black loose shirt, skin hugging black ripped tights, black combat boots, and in her cotton candy pink hair was a homemade crown of sunflowers, which really showed the girls personality. "I hope I didn't wake you." A warm smile grew across her face as she brought Axel into a comfortable hug. She was in most ways perfect, from her personality to her appearance, Axel cared greatly about her, in fact he viewed her like a little sister. "You're always welcome here, Barbie, and you already know that." Before he even got the chance to finish his sentence Barbie had made her way to the couch and stared at the suitcase that laid in front of it. "You're taking another trip." Without words he just nodded his head to her statement. The tiny girl giggled as she began to step inside the case and crouch down in it. "Well this time you have to take me too!" Watching her only brought a smile to his face. "I would invite you, but we only bought three plane tickets-" [color=#ED6868]"I know, I know, you're going to invite Marius to go with you, though you haven't yet." At this statement Axel bit his bottom lip. He was nervous to ask his best friend to go on a trip with him, though the two had gone on vacations with each other before this time was different. Not to long ago when the two boys had been drunk they had shared a kiss, he wasn't even sure if Marius even remembered it. "In fact..." Before he had time to react Barbie had popped up and taken his phone from him. Dialing some number she put the phone up to her ear. "Who are you calling." "Marius of course, if you can't ask him I will for you." His heart raced as he tried to prior the phone from her, but she was to fast and began to run.

***


The phone rang around three times and she wasn't sure if it had been answered or not, so she just began to speak. "Hey, Marius, this is Barbie, and Axel was wondering if you wanted to-" Stopping mid-sentence Axel had caught up to her when they had reached his room and hung the phone up. "I didn't get to finish!" Frowning at his actions, she just pulled her phone out and held a finger up to him when she noticed he had flinched. "Hey, Jessica, I Imagelove you and we should hang out later, bye love you." Barbie didn't give her girlfriend much time to reply or even pick up, for all she knew she just caught the answering machine again. "That was extremely brief." With a flimsy smile she yawned, and that made Axel yawn as well.

She didn't say another word, but instead laid down on his bed and quickly drifted off to sleep. Axel smiled at her and covered her up with his blankets, happy that his loneliness was gone. Watching her he decided to curl up next to her and hold her in his arms, though he wasn't tired, he just laid next to her in silence with his eyes shut.

Charlotte slept soundly beside Derek, in the most comfortable position she could possibly be in. She was nestled against his chest, and his arm was draped over her, holding her to him. A soft noise caused her eyes to flutter open, but Derek's even breathing and steady heartbeat lulled her back into a half-asleep state. Nobody could make her feel quite as safe as he could. She laced her fingers with his, and felt no desire to move from their warm embrace. A slightly louder noise caused Lottie to wake up completely. She glanced at the door, blinking against the bright morning sun. She yawned and looked at her alarm clock. The alarm was off, and it was a half of an hour later than when she had intended to wake up. By this time, Marius would already be awake. That would be the noises she was hearing. She let go of Derek's hand, and quickly sat up. She rubbed her eyes, realizing their situation. "Derek!" She whispered urgently and softly rolled him onto his back to wake him up. "Marius is up. If he sees you, we're both dead. Although at least he won't maim me." She teased him, smiling lightly.
There was a soft rap at the door, and Lottie's gentle blue eyes widened. "I'm not decent!!" She called quickly. "Alright. I just wanted to make sure you were still alive, usually you're up before me." Marius answered, with a light laugh. Lottie relaxed slightly when she heard him walk away. She untangled herself from Derek reluctantly. She quickly got dressed, and peeked out the door forca second before quickly closing the door. "So..." she murmured, sitting down next to Derek and smiling at him softly. "How are we going to sneak you out without Marius catching you. Or Bear, for that matter."

The sound of her iPod player was muffled as her ears slipped under the bathwater. The world seemed to slow down, as she let herself sink to the bottom of the tub. She let her mind wander, recalling her night out. The house had been overly crowded- with more people than she had expected. Of course, Jacob didn't let her spend much time down the party. He had pulled her away for some private fun early in the night. It wasn't until the sound of sirens blared through the second story window that Harper realized what was happening. She made it out the window and down the tree. Then she was running, running as fast as she could. The cops were too busy busting all the stumbling drunks in the front yard to really notice a skinny brunette making off into the woods. Luckily, it was a small neighborhood- and her house wasn't too far.. only about three-four miles, which for her as a runner- wasn't that bad.

Coming up for air, Harper sat in the bath and let out a sigh. She had ignored her phone all night. No doubt she had missed a text or a million from Lucas. She briefly wondered what he would think if he knew she was sleeping with the college boy. With an annoyed roll of her eyes, she stood. He wouldn't care, he'd find a way to make it the guy's fault and still love her through it. Harper lifted her fingers and brushed them against the steam on the mirror. Why did she always want to bruise the hell out of Lucas? What was it about seeing him battered and bleeding that made her so hot under the collar? She smiled, taking a moment to admire herself in the mirror. With a small smirk, she wrapped a towel around her and made her way to her room.

Image
As she was getting dressed, her mother came in. "You'll have to start packing soon." College. She was talking about college, again. Harper sighed, turning around to face her. Running a hand through her hair, "Um... I know. I just.. I thought I could, you know, wait until summer was a little closer to being over.. you know, so I could have clothes to wear?" "Oh. I had thought you'd want to move into your apartment by campus as soon as you could.." "You thought wrong," Harper said flatly, turning her back to her mother as she straightened the outfit she had laying on her bed. "You haven't told him that you're leaving, have you, Harper." Harper froze, slowly straightening. Turning to look at her mother, she narrowed her eyes. "I need to get dressed." Her mother sighs and holds up her hands, silently leaving.

Harper rolled her eyes and finished getting ready- remembering to put her bikini on under her outfit and picking up her cellphone to text Lucas.

To: L <3
Message: Are we still on for tonight? I need to get away. Meet me by the dock in 20.


She knew he'd never deny her, if he could avoid it. She hadn't told him that she was accepted into the college. She would be moving out of not just the island, but the country. Not that he didn't have the money to fly and see her; at least, that's what she tried to reason with herself. Dressed, Harper made her way out of the house and toward the docks. She'd walk, since it was a nice day out. Her sandals left little prints in the gravel and sand as she walked along the road from her house to the beach.

As she walked, she paused in front of Derek's house. She debated going inside, but at the last minute decided against it- choosing to text instead.

To: Deerdick
Message: Wake up, deerdick. Time to go! Lucas' is taking me out on the boat, you should come. You know you wanna see me in my bikini! Or maybe you want to see me out of it... (;


Smirking, Harper continued walking. When she arrived at the beach, she made her way to the dock- ignoring the chatter of the fishermen. Lifting herself onto the railing, she looked around- waiting for someone she knew to arrive. Since she was bored, she pulled out her phone again and turned on the camera. Directing the lens down her shirt, she snapped a picture of her cleavage and sent it to Jessica.

To: J <3
Message: Miss me? Come for a boat ride with me. Don't keep me waiting long. <3 XoXo baby.

“Oh God… he’s going to slaughter me!” Lottie bit her lip and glanced at the door, listening for Marius. If he found out Derek was here he would murder him and never let her out of his sight.
She turned her head, to watch Derek gather his things. He plopped down next to her with a devilish smirk, and she smiled brightly at him. He had left his bag and she knew where he was going with that. “You can drop that off later. It’ll give you an excuse to come over.” Lottie grinned and laughed lightly. "I'll take any excuse to come see you."

He winked and leaned towards her, twisting his body towards her. As he leaned in closer, she felt her heart race. Her lips parted slightly, and she inhaled quickly. Her eyes fluttered closed and she leaned towards him in anticipation. When he finally kissed her tenderly, her heart fluttered. She melted under his touch, her thigh warm under his hand. She laced her fingers through his hair, intoxicated by him. She leaned in closer, but they were cut off by a vibration in his pocket.

Derek and Lottie both jumped, and narrowly avoided accidentally biting each other's lip. She chuckled, and he rubbed the back of his neck and flashed her a brilliant smile that made her heart skip a beat. She smiled back, as he spoke to her. “Heh… sorry about that.” He pulled out his phone, and Lottie rested her head on his shoulder. He texted back whoever had messaged him, and she pouted slightly as he stood up and stretched.

“Now, how to get out of here… there’s always the window.” He gestured over to the open window, and her eyes warily looked over at it. "Well, I wouldn't want you damaging that pretty face of yours. It is the only reason I like you, after all." She teased, grinning at him and cuddling up beside him. “You could go downstairs and distract Marius. You know, come up with a reason to move him to the other side of the house. I’ll only need a few seconds. As soon as I turn the corner, I’ll be fine.” She nodded in agreement. That should work. If he hears anything or gets suspicious, I'll just trip or fall down the stairs or something o get his attention. You should be fine."

She rested her head on his shoulder, relishing the last few moments they had together. "Once i'm looking presentable i'll come by and 'bring you your bag'." She grinned at him, with a wink. "I'll see what Luke is doing today, too. We should do something fun to embrace summer, now that it's finally here." She looked up at him with her gentle blue eyes, smiling softly. He had the most beautiful eyes, that never failed to make her heart skip a beat.
