Derrin remained oblivious to the presence of another person, carrying not much more than a bag and a video camera. He looked really out of place, in his awkward looking clothing and stupid looking hat. He looked around left and right, but he didn't seem to really look for anything, then he leant against a wall, raised the camera and started talking.

"Alright, so this is my like, first recording. I'm out exploring the city right now because I really don't want to be at my apartment. That place, I swear it's haunted. So yeah, gonna start a video blog so that I can keep track of this haunting as proof."

Derrin jerked around in surprise, video camera immediately dropping to aim at his feet. "Uh, sorry," he said, "I didn't expect to see any one here." He couldn't have been eighteen yet, judging by how awkward he immediately looked in a strangers presence. "Um, yeah, haunted. I know it sounds dumb and I don't normally buy into the ghost stuff, but around my apartment I keep hearing weird noises during the night and doors slam on their own or lock at random."

Other than holding the video camera his other hand just dangled, and he shifted his weight back and forth like he didn't know if he should be standing or moving.

"Oh, well, I came here so I could make a recording somewhere quiet for... y'know, a video blog about the whole thing. Um, yeah, if you want." He wasn't sure how to take this. Was she asking him to lunch?

"Um, Derrin. Well, I live in a pretty crappy apartment near here, 'cause its cheap and I'm a student." He rubbed the back of his head awkwardly. "We could go down that way. There's a burger joint nearby." The camera was still on for the time being.

Derrin fumbled for his keys, video camera in his free hand. "So um, yeah, maybe I just need to get settled in the city," he said all the natural awkwardness of a teenager present, "But um... There's been some noises at night, and some doors shutting and locking on their own. I sort of think I'm being haunted." The keys jangled as he opened the door and pushed it open. He looked around uncomfortably at the dark room and flicked the lights on.

"So could you just hang around the night? I mean, just until like ten or something."

Derrin shook his head as he looked inside the small flat. To the left was the kitchen area and to the right was the main living area. The bedroom and bathroom were in their own seperate rooms, and it looked like there was a small study or wardrobe in the corner, that some thoughtful person had forced a desk into.

"Um, no, I'm still seventeen," and American. He didn't think he'd be drinking for another few years yet. "Yeah uh, haunted, but I'm just not sure what. Help yourself to any food or drink. I mean, its probably nothing, but I'm just not sure."

"School, y'know. Better schools. Parents wanted me to have an education," he said, scratching at his nose and heading for his couch. The couch was large enough to fit three people, but it was clearly second hand. The joke just wasn't his sort of humour and was met with an awkward smile. "Um did you eaten dinner yet? There's some salsa in the fridge and nachos, or um, some frozen meat patties and bread." Staple of a collage diet.

"No, it was like... I'm recording the haunting with this camera. I've been trying to find some evidence. I know it sounds dumb but I've got to try." He stood up off of his chair after turning the TV on with the remote. "I don't know much of the area, so this is all greek to me," he said, making an effort at a pun. He went for the bathroom, only for the door to slam shut behind him.

"Hey, was that you?" he asked, jostling the handle. "See, this is what I mean, it's locked itself."

"No, its fine I can just unlock it from the inside," he said, going about his business before opening the door. "You didn't happen to get that on camera did you?" he asked, then shook his head. "No, don't worry about it. I'll get some proof soon and put it online."

Derrin walked around with a video camera glued to his hand, and while it was on it was currently aimed only at his feet. He was a bit of a moron like that. The camera was raised to point around the area for a moment. "So... I'm just having a walk around the local area... I'm looking for some garage sales or maybe some dodgy side shops... I dunno, I'm getting pretty desperate by now to find something to stop this ghost problem. I mean, its not the haunting itself. I'm left just fine. But I keep getting this paranoid feeling..."

He was clearly talking to the camera. This was obviously for some sort of blog of his.

"I'm in luck," Derrin said, walking up to the things on displays, camera sliding over each one. "Man look at this stuff. Does anyone actually buy this?" He gave an awkward sort of laugh. Poking between the nick nacks he turned the camera towards Halo a few times, waiting for the man to be done with the old lady so he could bug him.

"Uh, what? No I'm just here to look for... stuff," Derrin explained awkwardly, lowering the camera. He hardly sounded believable. "Like, okay I know this is going to sound stupid, but do you have anything that chases off ghosts?"

"Yeah... Well, was worth a shot." He poked around a little bit. "Cause I'm being haunted..." he muttered, "I mean, not that you'd believe me." Yeah this was basically junk. Not too far away a more dodgy looking individual than Jarvis stood just at the corner, dressed finely in a suit and with a completely white mask hiding their face, staring in their direction.

"Wha..." Derring turned around immediately pointing the camera for the man and backing up against a table, knocking off a few things. "Oh man, not him again. This guy keeps stalking me. I think he's been watching my blog... Uh... Y'know, recordings of my being haunted. He's a total weirdo."

The man in the mask ducked around the corner long before Halo arrived at his location, and if he followed around the corner he would be gone. "See, total freak. Geez, I need to get a gun for... Y'know, just in case."

Knock knock knock.

It was Derring and he had the video camera still strapped to his hand. Also he looked a little worried. He kept throwing looks over his shoulder, like he expected someone to be watching him.

"Alex, man, I am happy to see you," he said, lowering the camera for a moment. "I've got a sort of problem. Um, I think it might be to do with the video camera stuff... Can I come in? I mean, I probly should've called ahead, but this was kinda important."

In the room he went, looking momentarily towards the toilet before heading for the living room for the moment, at which point he started looking at the window. "Well, I've been recording my haunting experience for a while and posting it online to see if anyone would, y'know, give a solution. Well... After I posted one or two I started to get followed by this creepy guy."

"He doesn't like... hurt me. But he wears a suit and a white mask and I'm worried he's a weirdo stalker."

"Uhm... A little. I don't think it did anything. But I don't think you get it..." he said, turning around and relaxing in one of the other leather chairs. "I dunno, maybe he is just trying to talk to me, but whenever I go near him he just runs off. Hey, how'd those Greek rune things go."

"Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Man, I'd probably go crazy if I didn't have an adult around to keep me calm," he said with a short laugh. But behind him, approaching, was a figure in a dark suit and a white mask, outside the window. They stopped when they realised there was Alex also in the room. "I mean, I'm adult," Derrin continued, placing a hand on his chest, "But I mean, I haven't even bought alcohol on my own yet."

"Oh you've got a gun?" Derring said, raising his head, "Cause that'd be a great help. But I think I should probably just get... I mean, yeah I could get one." He put the camera down to the side.

Derrin at once scrambled for the camera, raising it up to point outside. "Aw hell, no, no, its him again." The figure stood there for a moment and Derrin let out a sigh. "Get lost you freak! Geezus! Stop following me around!" They didn't move for the moment, but their face couldn't be seen behind the white sheet they had for a mask.

"Can you go out there? I mean, I'll come with you."

The figure turned around to run, but it didn't look like Derrin was wanting to let them get away. He pushed past Alex, chasing the man, shouting, "Hey, come back!" He stopped shortly after as he was a pretty skinny lad. Didn't look like he had much chase in him. "What the fuck."
