Sadly, the dhampir was a bit too preoccupied with getting his things dry to notice the way that he was being oggled by the mermaid standing next to him. Fortunately for her that didn't really stop him from looking like a male model that had stepped out of a magazine advertisement just for her own personal benefit. His skin was a bit pale, but other than that he looked like more than enough to make the girls who looked at him swoon. Still, he didn't carry around an air of it, there was no sense that he knew that he was doing it, and doing it just to tease her, just the friendly aura of one who hadn't really noticed the way that he was making her body react.
When she told him that he would do a better job of getting the water out of his pants if he took them off, he paused, and looked at her. She would feel those haunting blue eyes studying her own, tempting her almost to get lost in his gaze as he looked at her, studying her to see if she was serious. Taking off his trousers, or jeans, as they called them in clothing stores these days, would have been something that was somewhat risque back when he could remember walking the earth last. But then, so very much had changed that he was no longer sure what was acceptable and what wasn't. Beneath his pants he was wearing what they called 'boxers', a loose fitting type of underclothing that was much like shorts. And he had noticed that there were people who wore short like things when swimming.
"If... it's alright." he said with a moment of hesitation as he stood up slowly and kicked off the shoes that he was wearing, standing in socks for a moment there in front of her, before slowly fumbling a little with his zipper, giving her something of a show as he peeled away the wet jeans from his front, and then started to pull them down. For a moment they threatened to take his boxers with them, but he specifically held the undergarment in place as he peeled off the jeans and then stepped out of them.
Raina would definitely get a better view, as, though they hung loose while dry, now that they were wet his boxers were clinging close enough to his form that she would be able to appreciate that he worked on his gluts as well as the rest of his body, and that he had nothing to be ashamed about in the endowment deparment. He tugged at them a little self consciously before starting to ring out his jeans roughly. With as much strength as he could put into it, he nearly squeezed them completely dry in a matter of moments, and quickly put them back on once he felt that they had been wrung out enough. Clearly, regardless of what she had said he felt a bit self conscious about wearing so little in front of someone he'd just met.
"Alden. I was recently invited to go there myself. It is nice to meet someone else from the college who appreciates the beauty of nature." he said softly as he sat back down beside her.
At her last question though, he blinked a little. "I am uncertain of what luck was involved, but.. no, I do not try to spy upon ladies in states of undress. That would be rather unseemly of me, wouldn't it?" Desmond asked with a tilted head, clearly not understanding the light ribbing that she was giving him. He paused for a moment and looked down, trying to wrestle with a question.
"Please forgive me if the question is a bit odd but, why is it fortunate that I saw you in a state of undress?" His paralyzing blue eyes stared at her with the open honesty that spoke to the fact that this was a sincere question.
