Derek was aware of his surroundings, and he knew he would have to somehow find a commonground with this girl in order for the night to be bearable at the very least. Derek then replied to her "Oh your name is Bri? Good, i rather keep it simple than over complicate things like the name."
Derek heard a noise, and he did not like the noises he heard. Footsteps? Well whoever this new tresspasser was, he wasnt going to make life easy for him . Derek then felt Bris hand touch his, she was holding his hand. Derek was close to blushing , but he didnt. He wanted to complain or at least say something, but he didnt. He then looked to her, she was very pretty, and he then looked away to make sure he didn't look too embarrassed about it. Not that girls hadnt tried this before, but most girls couldn't bare his obnoxiousness. This is the first girl that wasnt so annoyed with him, so he didnt know how to react , either way he said "Hmmmph, probably another ghost enthusiast like you, or worse a burglar. No problem, im here, so i can beat the shit out of him before he can touch us... i mean me.."
